The Nokia 8, being a killer flagship, is truly a unique and stunning android smartphone which is being pioneered by HMD Global, the organization that made it possible for Nokia to still be in the lips of people today. Nevertheless, there are areas they kind of missed it (i.e. features neglected) due to one or two reasons, this article will explore and reveal them to you. Here they are:

#1. Wireless Charging

A lot of smartphone users may be disappointed when they find out that Nokia 8 lacks wireless charging feature. Although, wireless charging is still new and hasn’t gain so much acceptance or usage by phone manufacturers, there exist fans who expects flagship phones to be shipped with one.

It would have made sense if HMD Global had incorporated wireless charging feature in the Nokia 8 android smartphone, just like Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 already did, with the help of ‘Qi’ (pronounced ‘chee’) wireless charging technology.

The advantage of wireless charging is that when placed on a wireless charging pad, it charges quicker and easier. Anyways, Nokia 8 missed it by leaving out this feature but we hope they do better next time.

#2. IP68 for dust and water-resistance

As prices of smartphones continue to increase daily, there is a need for protection, that’s where 1P68 dustproof and waterproof certification comes into play. Nokia 8 is only IP54 certified which means it can only handle light splashes of water.

Nowadays, flagships usually come with IP68 dust and water resistance. Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus, Sony Xperia XZs, and LG G6 amongst others are IP68 certified. We don’t see reasons why Nokia 8 left out this important feature.

#3. Stereo speakers

Nokia 8 is not the first android smartphone to avoid putting stereo speakers in their flagship. Galaxy S8 didn’t have one and it is becoming a standard for most flagship phones. Notably, Nokia 8 features a 3.5mm headphone jack and OZO Audio but it could have made a big difference if they incorporated stereo speakers.

Conclusion

Nokia 8 has interesting and powerful features although it is lacking in some areas, we hope to see it do well in the market.

What do you think about the missing features in Nokia 8? Over to you.
