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.

    Good to learn some insights about the bothie though i don’t think i will use it for myself. i also use Quik App for editing and creating videos. It’s such a wonderful and time saving app for travel vids!

    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!!

  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
  • It was an exciting day at the ATM travel market yesterday in Dubai being interviewed on @instagramforbusiness on how I turned my passion into a successful career and on how my business works. I’ll be writing an article on the Q&A of the sessions too! I couldn’t take photos inside the hall but here is a throwback of the time I spent my week Cambodia 🇰🇭 and I’ve also written couple of articles and info on my time there on my site! Happy Monday! 😊
  • It’s the possibility of having all my dreams come true that makes my life so beautiful - Yet, it doesn’t mean that I don’t get to miss some certain moments like this one. In the middle of Laikipia - I left my heart ♥️
  • We’ll always find our way back to each other 💫
  • There is a sandstorm in Dubai at the moment, so I decided to look back at my photos from @constancehotels during my trip to Mauritius 🇲🇺Also, a few of you asked me about the weather, and how the forecast shows that it’s always raining in Mauritius... don’t look at that! The forecast was wrong all week! We had sunny days and clear skies up until the day I left ☀️ So my rule of thumb is: Don’t look at the forecast 😊
  • Last year, I did a little sailing through the Balkans from Montenegro - Have you been yet? It’s beautiful!!! ☀️
If you are planning a trip to there this summer, I’ve posted an itinerary list of things to do in Montenegro! Link in bio!
  • Summer is approaching and I can’t wait! Throwback on this Sunday to my last summer in Croatia! Have you planned your summer vacation yet?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past few days... it’s a good reminder on how I need to listen to my body. Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
  • Mauritius and all its beauty 🇲🇺☀️ @constancehotels
  • The hardest kind of resistance is when you’re resisting yourself. When your heart wants something and your brain prevents it. When you feel like sometimes you want to explode but you don’t. Its not always pretty but you keep going because, everything that is meant to be yours, will be yours.

  • 6am wake up call 🇲🇺 @Constancehotels  #myconstancemoment
  • Good morning! It’s actually raining today but, here is the beautiful day I checked into @constancehotels Prince Maurice. I tried to aim for a grand entrance here 😊 Have a beautiful day everyone!
