    Honestly speaking, fast charging is the most relevant and important feature these days in phones. You can charge your phone fully within minutes while you are getting ready to leave your home. No, Nokia 8.1 does not support fast charging. If configured correctly, the phone can give you upto a day's battery.

  • Is Nokia 8.1 Waterproof?

    N

    Answered By Niharika Pillai | 9 months ago

    Definitely, Nokia 8.1 is not waterproof. Though it has a non-removable back cover, still it is not waterproof. It may sustain a few splashes of water, but it will not withstand drop in water. IP67 or IP68 certification is not very easy to attain. All the ports, SIM stray and speakers need to be water proof and ensure no water penetrates. You need to be careful while using your phone,if it drops in water, you definitely needs to get new one.
