Nokia 8

 

Nokia 8: Price, release date. features and price – Is this the Nokia HMD flagship device we have been waiting for? Or will it end being too expensive?

Sharp display ; Excellent battery life ; Pure take on Android

Generic design ; Disappointing camera ; Tiny fingerprint sensor

Some people have been waiting an awful long time for Nokia to make an Android phone.

Nokia 8 hands-on review

 

If we used the Nokia 8's Bothie mode to shoot a reaction to the phone, it would be all smiles.

Fun, creative Bothie mode ; Monochrome camera mode is excellent ; Almost pure Android ; Very fast and smooth performance ; Polished copper model is a stunner

Design is very subtle ; If you don't like Bothies, you may find the phone too modest

Nokia 8 review: Connecting the dots

 

This is it then. The long-awaited Finnish flagship that goes all in against the phones that rule today. The Finnish cameraphone returning to claim the prize that was once its birthright. Everybody bow and make way?

The Nokia 8 is fine. And that’s its biggest problem

 

The Nokia 8 is fine. And that's its biggest problem.

The Nokia 8 has two rear cameras and is packed with power. Its screen is bright and sharp.

It lacks some cutting-edge features for a high-end phone in 2017, like waterproofing and a slim, standout design.

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.

Hands on Nokia 8 review: Is this the Nokia flagship we've been waiting for?

 

Zeiss dual camera setup, OZO audio recording, and top-end specs makes this Nokia every inch a flagship

Polished Copper colourway ; Affordable ; Comfortable to hold

(Slightly) dated design ; Not sure how useful OZO audio is

Nokia 8 Review: HMD Global has produced a device that can carry the Nokia legacy, but camera needs a lot of work

 

Nokia 8 is a stellar device from HMD Global and it almost checks all the right boxes for the first Nokia-branded flagship. But here is the thing, ‘almost'.

Nokia 8 is a stellar device from HMD Global and it almost checks all the right boxes for the first Nokia-branded flagship. HMD should be proud of what they made created in terms of build quality and software update cycle for an Android-based device....

Nokia 8 Review - NotebookReview.com

 

The Nokia 8 is another "pure" Android phone to rival Google's Pixel. Read on to see what Nokia delivers.

Impressive fit and finish, worthy of the brand ; Fantastic display contrast ; Dual Sight camera means creative streaming options ; Chipset performance among the best in the range

Dated form factor includes oversized display bezel ; Imprecise automatic focus system on the rear-facing camera ; It is not fully waterproof

Nokia 8 Smartphone Review

 

Three lenses. With the Nokia 8, HMD Global now also revives the legendary Finnish brand in the premium range. At a fair price of around 580 Euros (~$682; $565 in some US online retailers), the buyer gets a well-built and well-configured 5.3-inch...

very bright screen ; good build ; fast SoC ; pure Android 7.1.1 ; very good GPS ; decent camera ; videos recorded with surround sound ; USB 3.1 Gen.1 ; long battery life ; Quick Charge 3.0

not waterproof or dustproof ; only average Wi-Fi speed ; no Gigabit LTE ; relatively few LTE bands

The Nokia 8 scores with its superbly built aluminum casing and a very bright, 5.3-inch QHD screen. It also earns sympathy points with its high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. This, alongside 4 GB of RAM and the swift Adreno 540 pixel accelerator,...

Nokia 8 review: Nokia’s top-tier flagship brings the firm back on track

 

Nokia's revival is a long time coming and packed with smartphones, and the Nokia 8 leads the pack

Stunning unibody design ; Lengthy battery life ; Stock Android

Held back by its competition

It certainly helps that Nokia has opted to build a more traditional flagship rather than pushing niche, high-end features – case in point, it isn’t asking for absurd amounts of cash like Asus with its £800 Zenfone AR. Granted, the Nokia 8 might not be...
