NOKIA 8: My Experience Using the BOTHIE on my TripsLike1

NOKIA 8: In collaboration with the new Nokia 8, I was given the chance to create 3 videos by using solely the device. It was a great experience to learn more about the latest Android. 

NOKIA 8:

My Experience Using the BOTHIE on my Trips

There are many things I learned while exploring the features. First, I was asked to use the BOTHIE feature. A feature where, get this, you can film two screens in one video. One facing you, and the other one facing the front, what you see… (Both) in one screen. If you are taking a picture or video of yourself, that’s called a selfie… therefore if you are taking a video of two people using both cameras at the same time is a bothie.

The advantage: Expressions. 

For starters, despite a 3090 man battery life, the Nokia 8 lasted longer than usual, even in -35 degrees celsius! I decided to take the Nokia 8 with me snowboarding in Lebanon too and captured the first snowfall. One thing I know for sure is that it also felt very stable in my hands… until I decided to hold the Nokia 8 while snowboarding down a mountain… It fell…three times… without a fuss, It survived!

The Nokia 8 has partnered with Carl Zeiss, the famous German company that specialises in optical instruments to design the dual camera setup of the device. It packs two camera sensors with 13 MP resolution. It also allows users to shoot video in 4K resolution. The front camera also comes with camera sensor with 13 MP resolution and 4K video recording capabilities and phase detection autofocus. It also has a feature where you can determine the volume of both cameras which is a great option if are filming a travel video and want your voice to be clearer than the front view. It also has an option to stabilize your video once it is saved which came in handy especially with the snowboarding shots!

I edited the videos with an application called QUIK and was able to upload it directly to YouTube and Instagram. 

Nokia 8 is available with internal storage and the base variant with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. Users can add a microSD card to the mix with up to 256 GB capacity to increase the storage of the device. The microSD card uses the second SIM slot. These options are great to store video content. The color grading, sharpness and brightness of the phone is not to disappoint either and despite the huge amount of videos stored, it managed never to crash on me, which is extremely important. 

Have you recently purchased the Nokia 8 and if so, what are your thoughts?

Full discloser: I have partnered with Nokia 8 to create videos using the BOTHIE feature. All my views and opinions are my own.

It was an exciting project to work on with Nokia Phones (HMD Global). I took it on as a challenge to film for the first time using a phone camera and editing everything using the Nokia 8. I wanted to show that by keeping it real, we can all create memories and videos. I was able to capture my first trips of 2018 using a selfie stick for the first time. I enjoyed the journey and of course learning about the latest product and options I have for filming. You can find more information here.

    A decent all-rounder, the dual-camera Nokia 8 gets the job done, but it doesn’t come close to today’s true Android stars

    I like you how are so cool with allowing yourself not to be perfect. It’s so important. Is the Phone heavy? I thought NOKIA was dead and now it seems like it’s been brought back!! Very interesting!!

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
