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.

Nokia 8 Review -


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 is back. It has embraced Android and it's got a Snapdragon 835 flagship phone to compete with the big guns like the iPhones, Galaxies and Pixels…

Great price ; Smooth performance ; Plentiful 64GB of internal storage ; Fast charger included in the box ; Solid battery life

Big bezels, colors not as lively as on other screens ; Camera is below average ; No water proofing ; Fingerprint is not as accurate as on other phones ; Always-on Display is hard to see, too dim

Nokia 8 review: A solid but uninspiring flagship


The Nokia 8 is Nokia's new flagship smartphone , joining stablemates like the revision of the classic candybar Nokia 3310 , the entry-level Nokia 3 and the mid-range Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 .

Great battery life ; Bright, high-resolution screen ; Robust build ; Stock, uncluttered Android (7) ; Dual rear cameras

No really outstanding features ; 'Bothie' idea is not compelling ; Moderate resistance to dust and water ingress (IP54)

Nokia 8 Review


Nokia 8 is a flagship model running with premium specs but high mid-range price. All is great except the camera. Love the glossy aluminium back finishing.

At S$749, the Nokia 8 is priced very competitive against the likes of OnePlus 5 with flagship processors. Anyone who has any remaining feeling of nostalgia (just like BlackBerry ) should get one and reconnect with this iconic brand. Using the camera is...

Nokia 8 review: a cheaper flagship (and it shows)


Apple and Samsung aside, has there ever been more hype around a smartphone than HMD's Nokia 8? The first Nokia-branded flagship since 2014's Lumia 930, the

Disappointing battery life and a ho-hum camera experience sully what is otherwise a good debut for HMD and a solid return to form for the Nokia brand. Still, a powerful, cheaper flagship with stock Android! 8 out of 10
