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 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

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camera isn't reliable enough, and its design, while improved over the regular Nokia 8, feels stout and a little outdated.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 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


We run the flagship Nokia 8 Sirocco through its paces, feeling the Snapdragon 835 performance on clean Android, the dual camera, and compact design

Premium feel, compact for the screen size ; Good battery life ; Clean video sound recording and call quality ; Bloat-free software, fast to get Android updates

Overpriced ; Camera software needs work ; Lock and volume keys are shallow and too thin for comfort

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: A flawed flagship Review | ZDNet


Nokia's otherwise solidly specified 5.5-inch flagship smartphone is let down by its curved 16:9 aspect-ratio screen.

Solid steel frame ; Android One ensures 2 years of updates ; 128GB of internal storage ; IP67 rating for dust/water resistance

Curved 5.5-inch screen not well implemented ; Screen has dated 16:9 aspect ratio screen

Nokia 8 Sirocco: set shoulders to 'shrug' | AndroidPIT


As the successor to the Nokia 8, the Nokia 8 Sirocco finally breaks with tradition with a stunning design and ultra thin edges. It's not without its faults though. Check out our full review to find out more!

If 2017 was the year of Nokia's return to the world of telephony, 2018 is the year of its confirmation. Unlike its predecessor, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is more worthy of HMD Global's ambitions. The Finnish manufacturer has done well with this phone, with a...

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Great Performance But Camera Leaves Us Wanting For More - MySmartPrice


Last year, Nokia launched its flagship handset — the Nokia 8 (review). However, the handset met with a tepid response with most reviews criticising it for its poor camera performance and not living up to its high price tag. Six months later at MWC...

No palm rejection for the curved edges ; Camera could have been better ; Priced a bit too high

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: A bold move from Nokia | Trusted Reviews


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
