Carphone Warehouse has wiped off an impressive £200 from the price of Nokia’s latest Android-powered flagship in a deal not to be missed.
The Nokia 8 was recently updated to the latest version of Android (8.1 Oreo) and is one of the best ways to experience pure, clean Android. Better yet Carphone Warehouse has slashed the SIM free price to just £299.95.
The Nokia 8 has all the specs you would expect of a flagship phone, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM. It also has a 5.3-inch Quad HD display. The small size of the Nokia 8 is perfect for anyone who doesn’t get on with larger phones.
In our Nokia 8 review, we were particularly impressed on the software side: “Nokia has gone with an extremely faithful version of Android 7.1.1 [now updated to 8.1], with minimal embellishments. It’s even resisted the urge to supply its own email, calendar, messaging and caller apps in favour of Google’s own default examples. I can think of a few major manufacturers who could learn from such restraint.”
It really grinds our gears when manufacturers inundate their phone with their own Android skins and apps, making them slow and annoying to use, so we can really appreciate the clean approach shown by the Nokia 8.
