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

 

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.

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 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 hands-on review

 

Zeiss optics are back in Nokia's most powerful phone to date

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 review: Nokia’s top-tier flagship gets cheaper

 

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...

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.
