Nokia 8 Sirocco

 

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: A bold move from a confident Nokia, the 8 Sirocco has a curved body and plenty of high-end features

Striking steel and glass design ; 128GB storage ; Produces great daylight photos

P-OLED screen spoils the curved front ; 16:9 screen already seems dated ; Oversaturated screen no good for photo previews ; Last-generation processor

The Nokia 8 Sirocco runs Android 8.0; it’s an Android One phone. This means there’s no custom interface and it relies primarily on Google apps rather than those of the manufacturer or another developer.

Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on review

 

With a promising camera and a beautiful design, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is hard to ignore.

Beautiful design ; Comfortable to hold ; Good specs ; Speedy camera ; Stock Android 8.0 Oreo

Edges are a tad too sharp ; Hard to press buttons ; No headphone jack

Nokia 8 Sirocco, 7 Plus, and 8110 4G hands-on review

 

Nokia is starting its second year as a new-look Android maker but it already has a big portfolio to build on and a solid market position to build from. More importantly it has a great relationship with Google which has enabled Nokia to supply its...

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is too expensive for its own good

 

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is the best Nokia Android phone yet, but not exciting enough to justify the cost.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is fast, feels sturdy, has a long battery life and runs the sleek Android One operating system.

It lacks any standout features to justify its premium pricing. The Nokia 8 Sirocco's camera isn't reliable enough, and its design, while improved over the regular Nokia 8, feels stout and a little outdated.

While the Nokia 8 Sirocco does suffer from minor faults, its main issue is being outclassed by similarly-priced competitors.

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: The high-end Nokia looking to steal Samsung's crown

 

Compact design ; Android One software ; Waterproof design ; Good battery life

Display looks dated ; Ageing hardware ; Sharp edges ; Wireless connectivity issues

The flagship Nokia is about design: it's slim, with curved glass edges to its 5.5in screen, and a clean Android One software experience. But it launches on dated hardware and which, along with some connectivity issues, spells issues. It's got merit,...

Finally, Nokia delivers a true blue flagship phone

Nokia 8 Sirocco review

 

It has the looks, but does it have the tech to match?

Luxury design ; Clean software ; Lots of storage

Uses a 2017 chipset ; P-OLED screen has issues ; Camera doesn’t match the best at the price

Nokia has successfully made a luxury phone, with a high-end build, generally decent specs and no software bloat, but the Nokia 8 Sirocco seems slightly dated in too many areas to fully recommend.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Smartphone Review

 

A smartphone for fans of design? The Nokia 8 Sirocco has an unusual name and unusual looks. Can the high-end phone please the crowd or is mainly interesting for fans of design? Let us find out in our review.

very stable, high-quality case ; long lasting battery runtime ; gaming at 60 fps is possible ; very precise touchscreen ; good microphone ; pure Android with update guarantee ; large storage capacity

no 3.5-mm audio jack ; strange behavior in Google Maps ; average Wi-Fi speeds ; selfie camera is not impressive ; strange color effects due to curved screen ; relatively high temperatures under load ; significant throttling after long periods of load

The Nokia 8 Sirocco definitely is a smartphone for individualists; Nokia has fulfilled its promise by giving this phone its rather particular name. The phone has all the features of a current high-end mobile phone: Long battery runtimes, high...

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: Good work Nokia, but buyers can skip this flagship

 

Given the Nokia Sirocco branding, I expected a smartphone that was as luxurious as it was functional, a phone that could take on the Samsung Galaxy S9

HMD Global has priced the Nokia 8 Sirocco at Rs 54,999 in the Indian market. This puts the device in almost the same territory as the spectacular Google Pixel 2 , and Galaxy S9 . The upcoming flagship by OnePlus, the OnePlus 6 is likely to be cheaper...
