Nokia 8 Strength Test: Scratch, BURN and Bend

Gorilla Glass 5 also does not offer much resistance to knocks or involuntary scratches

For a few days, we can already do with the Nokia 8, the flagship of the Finnish company, manufactured by HMD Global. This new terminal offers a very interesting value for money, so it is one of the best options we can find on the market today if we want to do with a terminal managed by the Snapdragon 835 accompanied by 4 GB of RAM. JerryRigEverything has subjected the new Nokia terminal to scratch resistance testing using different tools in addition to the almost mandatory resistance test if we try to bend it.

Taking into account that the body of this terminal is aluminum and of poor quality from what we see in the video, the Nokia 8 does not get along well with sharp tools, such as a cutter, with which we can even get to tear bits of the Case. The keys also do not get very well with the aluminum used, so we must take it into account when sharing pocket with them. That if, at the time of trying to double it, the Nokia 8 resists like the most.

But not only the aluminum used is of low quality, something we have to find that price so tight, but the glass with the protection Gorilla Glass 5 also does not offer much resistance to knocks or involuntary scratches, although in this test are all volunteers. After seeing these tests, we must take into account the use of a case if or for the back of the device but we want the first change to begin to show scratches.

Leaving aside the test of resistance, which happens in a very fair way, a determining factor when acquiring this terminal we find it will be the first terminals to receive the new versions of Android, thanks to the agreement reached with Google to be managed almost by the same version as the Google Pixel.

The first Nokia with Windows Phone 8 is coming

It will be on September 5 when the curtain rises in Helsinki and Nokia show not only release their first mobile platform, Windows Phone 8, but also that they would become the pioneers in the third generation of the Microsoft platform for smartphones. It already have several clues about how these Nokia with Windows Phone 8 devices could be, but it would be seen whether the Finnish hasten the timing, as it did last year with the premiere of the family Nokia Lumia, hit stores before the end of 2012. In this sense, the operator Verizon U.S. have channeled this issue, noting that their catalog will draw on some of the new devices that will know in a couple of weeks this year.

The first Nokia with Windows Phone 8 will arrive in 2012

So, at least, it is mentioned in a report published by Bloomberg, which also states that with this move, the association between Nokia and Microsoft seek to strengthen relationships with the operators of the United States in order to strengthen the presence of Nokia Lumia and continuing in the terminal to install Windows Phone 8.

And is that the results of the first year of this marriage are not all the fruitful they wished, despite being made of a relatively substantial share of the pie. And to highlight the relatively because the growth of iOS and especially of Android has left little room for that since Nokia and Microsoft will benefit from the forecasts with the market waiting to assault.

The latest rumors about the family that continues to Nokia Lumia indicate that at least the high end of this line, would have a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. Among the innovations that will have the new operating system includes support for terminal panels in the work to develop high-definition rates.

New Nokia Phone with Windows 8 will be presented on September 5

The new Windows Phone 8 from Nokia are just around the corner. Within just three weeks when the Finnish company will hold its annual event, Nokia World 2012, which will share with participants presenting the New Nokia Phone Lumia devices, designed to work with the most advanced platform of Microsoft for smart phones.

New Nokia Phone with Windows 8 will be presented on September 5

In the invitation sent to media this fact makes it quite clear, showing the same of similar composition to the interface Metro of Windows Phone, including data for opening doors in the event, also referring to Nokia and Microsoft as Hosts for the occasion.

Fortunately, the thicker the land of the leaks, and to illustrate what could submit Nokia at the event, we learned a couple of missteps that have been uncovered by Unwired View and WPXAP. In both cases, we dealt with components of a pair of phones, which presumably would be two of the terminals going to announce on September 5 in the opening event of Nokia World 2012. Specifically, it is the protective surface of the front of two unique models in the catalog of the Nokia.

In the case of filtering that we have learned through Unwired View, we have a panel that would be defined by a screen of 4.3 inches, which would coincide with the current high-end signature, Nokia Lumia 900. It is noteworthy that, at least looking at this component, it appears that the final design would have the device that would set the front panel would display a rounded appearance around the edges, perhaps along the lines of that seen in the Nokia Lumia 610, but with a larger-and unlike seen in the Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 900.

In fact, the straight lines of these yes that would be present at the second potential terminal which would consist of the front panel that has leaked through WPXAP. In this case we encounter itself with a protective cover with an appearance closer to that seen in the two phones in the first level of the Finnish firm. However, in one as another, it is difficult to determine whether the final design will be so dependent on the form taken this component, though, a priori, one would think they will.

Both end faces match, also on two elements of interest review. On the one hand, both boast a small hole next to the earpiece for what appears to be a front camera, the Nokia Lumia 900 and included a side of a megapixel sensor. Furthermore, the logo of Windows Phone that is located in the lower mode capacitive start button has changed its design, now adopting the appearance of the new corporate identity that Microsoft has defined for the whole family of platforms to be put in a position to phones, tablets and computers from next autumn.

The Nokia smartphone with Windows Phone 8 arrive in September

Nokia released its new line of Lumia Nokia smartphone system based on Windows Phone 8 over the next Nokia World 2012.
The annual conference that the Finnish firm place to present their new products, and that this time will take place in Helsinki between days 5 and 6 September, will host the second generation mobile platform the company Microsoft.

The Nokia Windows Phone 8 arrive in September

What they have not pointed out these sources is the nature of the mobile that Nokia submitted to expand the family Lumia. In addition to incorporating Windows Phone 8, which is the latest version of the platform of Redmond, is expected to strain any device to expand its appeal thanks to the presence of technology PureView, unveiled the Nokia 808 PureView and has special peculiarity as the possibility of taking pictures and videos with an unusual quality. Not surprisingly, the said device to capture images with a maximum resolution of between 34 and 38 megapixels and no effective terms, and offers a digital zoom that emulates the results of a powerful optical zoom small format.

Nevertheless, although Nokia has confirmed that we will see mobile PureView system in one of its next Lumia, have not ensured that the second generation of devices with Windows Phone will integrate a model with this technology. What we do know is that we have a prototype that seems to work with Windows Phone 8.

China is the web WPDang that has leaked this model, which, incidentally, themselves baptized as 900 Fake Nokia Lumia, or whatever it is, Nokia Lumia 900 of paste. What you see is a model that indeed looks like the latest and most comprehensive mobile terminal of this family, but with the proviso that displays icons for Windows Phone 8, although, in fact, it could be Windows 7.8 phone.

And, as you may recall, the current generation of devices Windows Phone can not be done with the version called Apollo. In return, these terminals will receive an update dubbed Windows Phone 7.8 that basically emulates the look of Windows Phone 8, and specific system functions more advanced Microsoft.

Therefore, it is difficult to ascertain whether the images shown WPDang correspond to a Nokia 900 with Windows Phone Lumia 7.8 or if it is a prototype that come with the platform to be released in the coming weeks. A clue may be given by the terminal housing, color yellow, which is not available for any of the official models of Lumia 900. In any case, there is a turning point, given that Nokia could expand the palette of this device without too much effort.

Specs Comparison: Nokia Asha 311 vs HTC Wildfire S

The Nordic manufacturer Nokia has just introduced new models to its family Asha, which corresponds to mid-range devices low, most notably the Nokia Asha 311, a terminal completely touch with a fairly balanced sheet. But the strength of this Nokia Asha 311 is its price, around $ 100 in free format. Nokia wants to compete in all mobile segments, from high-end Lumia family even the simplest mobile with this line Asha. One possible competitor is the HTC Wildfire S, the smartphone midrange most popular Taiwanese manufacturer that also offers interesting features like touch screen 3.2 inch platform Android and especially the five-megapixel camera.

Specs Comparison: Nokia Asha 311 vs HTC Wildfire S

Here GadgetsATZ dot Com analyzed all the features of these two models in a comparative.

Design and Display

Despite being a basic, cheap device, the Nokia Asha 311 can boast of having a simple design and sleek, which is also available in pink, brown, red white and blue so that each user can choose the one that best suits your taste. It is a fairly mobile compact and lightweight, with the battery installed weighs 95 grams. The HTC Wildfire S has a more casual look to have a fairly flat around the edges, also available in several colors (black, silver, purple and white) but not as flashy as it has chosen Nokia to their new model. The little of HTC is more compact but nevertheless its weight rises to 105 grams, a difference is not excessive but for many users this is a crucial point when choosing a smartphone.
Specs Comparison: Nokia Asha 311 vs HTC Wildfire S
The HTC scores a both have a 3.2 inch screen with resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, offering fairly sharp images thanks to its concentration of 180 pixels per inch. The Nokia Asha 311 left behind in the section the screen, which is smaller and has lower resolution. Specifically the size is three inches and the resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, half of his opponent. The two manufacturers have been sighted and have placed a sheet of glass resistant to scratches and bumps covering the screen, so will be more protected.

Connectivity

Access to Internet is a point essential, not only in high-end smartphones, but also in the most basic as is the case of these models. Both allow you to connect through 3G networks, but the Nokia Asha 311 does at a higher speed (14.4 Mbps) , while the HTC Wildfire S content to 7.2 Mbps download speed. The drawback of the network 3G is to set a limit operators of mobile data per month, at this point it is necessary to access Wi-Fi high speed to save data and so pass to sail much faster. Another of their commonalities is the port Bluetooth to share files or use accessories like headset or wireless speakers. But the biggest difference in this section comes with GPS. The HTC Wildfire S equipped with an integrated GPS that can locate you quickly. Meanwhile the Nokia Asha 311 does not have this feature and instead positioning is done by the Wi-Fi, so it is not as accurate.

To close this section, the two terminals have the same physical connections the standard audio jack of 3.5 mm and 2.0 MicroUSB port for charging.

Camera and Multimedia

The camera of HTC Wildfire S is one of the main attractions and is imposed on the Nokia Asha 311, which has a much more modest camera. The HTC Wildfire S is a simple mobile that surprises us with its five-megapixel camera, which also has features like autofocus and LED flash to support taking pictures at night or in low light. Also records video with resolution VGA (640 x 480 pixels) at a frequency of 24 frames per second.

The Nokia Asha 311 equipped with a camera sensor 3.2 megapixel that has no autofocus (fixed) or no LED flash. However has other functions such as white balance, digital zoom lens four increases or a very light ( f/2.8). Also fails to catch up your opponent with respect to video recording, which will have a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels and often stays at ten frames per second.

Both devices are very solvent at the time of playing media formats used, so there should be no problem when watching a video or listen to a song. Finally, the Nokia Asha has an FM radio tuner while the HTC Wildfire S lacks this feature.

Processor, memory and operating system

One of the strengths of Nokia Asha 311 is without doubt its power. Despite being a modest device has unveiled a one-gigahertz processor mononucleosis frequency. For its part the HTC Wildfire S equipped with a chip, also a single nucleus, with a clock speed of 600 Mhz and is also supported by 512 Mb of RAM – Nokia Asha 311 has not provided information about RAM. Such processors may seem insufficient when compared to those including high-end smartphones that in some cases they have four cores. But remember that both the Nokia Asha 311 as the HTC Wildfire S are moving more discreet that do not have such high performances, in this sense do not need a powerful engine to run too well.

Neither offers an internal memory too long, but the HTC Wildfire S is ahead by offering 512 MB of storage, while the Nokia is content with 256 Mb. How could it be otherwise, both help to increase memory MicroSD cards, which can reach a maximum capacity of 32 GB.

The operating system of these two terminals is completely different, the Nokia Asha 311 comes with the platform S40 a very simple and basic, while the HTC Wildfire S bet on Android, one of the most popular mobile platforms. Both systems have an app store to decargar games or any type of content, however the Google Play on Android store is much larger. The operating system is an important point when choosing a mobile and in many cases will be decisive. Nokia S40 is more focused on users who do not want a phone with too many complications as qu and Android is more comprehensive and allows more possibilities for customization.

Range and prices

According to both manufacturers, the autonomy of these models is well matched, especially in regard to the battery when the phone is in use (approximately 7.2 hours in both cases). The Nokia Asha 311 will hold on longer when at rest, namely 781 hours, whereas HTC Wildfire S will not exceed the 570 hours.

The price is an issue to take into account and in this case the difference is quite remarkable. The Nokia Asha 311 will go on sale in free format by about 100 euros while his opponent doubles this figure and can be purchased for 200 euros.

Conclusions

You have seen that the HTC Wildfire S is higher in areas such as display quality and especially the camera five megapixel, two important points. The Nokia Asha 311 is something behind and the only point that stands out most is the power of your processor. But the price in their favor and is worth half that his opponent, which will undoubtedly encourage many users to buy.
