Time to evaluate performance of the latest Nokia Flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8 sirocco. We have tested the real-life performance of the Nokia 8 sirocco in this performance testing video. Nokia 8 sirocco packs 6GB RAM and combines it with Snapdragon 835 processor and Pure Android for the kill. We have seen how blazing fast Nokia 8 was with 4GB RAM and Snapdragon 835, so in theory 8 Sirocco should be the “real performance monster”.
We have conducted this test in very heavy usage scenario. So, there are four of the heaviest Android games GTA San Andreas, Mortal Kombat X, Injustice: Gods among as and Asphalt 8 airborne open in the background. Then we have the browser with 10 tabs, camera and other apps open in the background.
So, how does Nokia 8 Sirocco actually perform in this very heavy usage scenario. You can decide for yourself by checking the video, but here are our observations.
With 4 super-heavy games (Android games GTA San Andreas, Mortal Kombat X, Injustice: Gods among as and Asphalt 8 airborne), 10 browser tabs, Camera, and many other apps open in the background Nokia 8 Sirocco doesn’t even show slightest unease while doing other tasks. In fact unless you check the background you won’t feel how much heavy load it is tackling already.
All super-heavy games resume just fine from background and it seems Nokia 8 Sirocco can handle even more games and apps while multitasking. As you will notice in the video, apps/games resume fast from background during multitasking and there are no crashes/lags/freezes even with so much load.
Gaming is very enjoyable on Nokia 8 Sirocco and we have tried to demo the game-play with heavy and critically acclaimed games like Android games GTA San Andreas, Mortal Kombat X, Injustice: Gods among as and Asphalt 8 airborne. The device certainly holds the promise of hours of enjoyable game play without a pause. You would love the volume output and the performance of the phone remains blazing fast.
Even with 10 browser tabs open it always seems that Nokia 8 Sirocco can take much more load. Pages load near-instantly. Scrolling, zooming, panning, tab changing all are very snappy.
