2017 has been a rebound year for almost too many smartphone brands to count. Samsung’s Note 8 emerged from the flames of last year’s debacle, TCL returned BlackBerry to prominence with the KeyONE and, now, HMD Global launches its latest bid to do the same with the once-mighty Nokia.
Building on the momentum of its initial offensive into the mass market with the value-driven Nokia 3, 5 and 6, the Finnish startup are now taking a solid swipe at the giants of the industry with the Nokia 8.
Billed as the first true flagship Nokia smartphone since the company’s heyday, the Nokia 8 is both a little larger and faster trio of devices HMD launched back in June. However, according to HMD, it’s more than just iterative - it’s innovative in ways that count, specifically when it comes to camera side of the equation.
If HMD’s initial trio of devices were aimed at getting the mass market to care about the Nokia brand again, the Nokia 8 feels like it’s intended to give enthusiasts reason to do the same. To all the Android-based smartphone vendors out there,it’s a warning shot. Ignore Nokia at your own peril. This is a smartphone that can’t be written off as mere nostalgia.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
