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...

Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on: a very pleasant breeze

 

After playing the nostalgia card with the new version of the Nokia 3310 last year, HMD Global took advantage of MWC 2018 to lift the veil on its new high-end smartphone, the Nokia 8 Sirocco (not the Nokia 9, after all). We were able to take a look at...

If the year 2017 had marked Nokia's return to the telephone world, 2018 seems to be the year of confirmation. Unlike its predecessor, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is finally worthy of HMD Global's ambitions. With a particularly attractive design, the Finnish...

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

 

Nokia's hardware guardian, HMD Global, has released a full portfolio of devices in the year that it's been releasing phones. Aiming to deliver Nokia quality

HMD Global's message from day one on Nokia phones has been about design and quality. For the regular Nokia devices, it's all about that aluminium block starting point, so you have a strong phone. It's great to see that in this special version of the...

Nokia 8 Sirocco review

 

A special edition flagship Nokia 'for the fans'

Premium metal and glass design ; Wireless charging ; A real flagship from Nokia

Last year's chipset ; No headphone jack

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is a significant step forward for HMD Global. The Android One integration is great news for prospective buyers, and the design and screen are great to look at.

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: Hands-on

 

Nokia's latest phone is a glass-backed rival to Samsung's flagship. We went hands-on with the Nokia 8 Sirocco at Mobile World Congress, and here's what we think so far.

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: Hands on with Nokia’s flagship Galaxy S9 rival

 

Nokia finally launched its first flagship smartphone at MWC, but is the Nokia 8 Sirocco any better than the rest?

Following an impressive first year, now’s the chance for HMD, the Finnish firm behind Nokia, to really stamp its authority and claw back the high acclaim Nokia phones once had. And, the Nokia 8 Sirocco could be the handset to do so.
