Video: Unboxing of the Nokia 8

Nokia 8 was announced in August, but HMD did prepare itself this time and sent the device much sooner to the media, bloggers and journalist to play with it. Today, in our hands landed the first Nokia branded Android flagship phone – the Nokia 8 We got the silver version of the Nokia 8 and must say that I kind of don’t like it in that color, since Tempered Blue or Copper look much better. Don’t get me wrong, this is a beautiful phone, but those antenna stripes are more visible with the silver version.

Anyway, Nokia 8 is slick, nicely done, and has looks of the Nokia 5. Seems to me that people in HMD were pretty satisfied how Nokia 5 came out so they obviously used her as a template for the 8 (or vice versa). Nokia 8 and Nokia 5 look similar at first, but there are many differences when you take both phones in your hand.


Here I bring you the unboxing video of the Nokia 8. Packaging is a bit different since it doesn’t open like a drawer, as used in the packaging of the 6, 5 and 3. Nokia 8 comes with better earphones, but not Nokia Stereo Earphones that were presented few weeks ago. The phone is protected with plastic cover, but it doesn’t has screen protection as well, so no peeling sensation here.
