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 - recension

 

Den första toppmobilen från Nokia sedan 2014.

Vacker design, speciellt med dess glansiga effekt ; Dubbelkamera med intressant programvara ; Vacker QHD-skärm

Inga direkt unika egenskaper ; Den är inte vattentålig ; Priset är lite högre än vad vi hade hoppats på

Nokia 8 erbjuder en hel del fantastiska funktioner som ett kraftfullt chipset, en dubbelkamera och en QHD-skärm i perfekt storlek, men den kämpar för att erbjuda något unikt i jämförelse med övrig konkurrens på marknaden. Nokia 8 är en bra mobil men...

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...

Nokia 8 review

 

The Nokia 8 is a flagship phone with decent specs at a price that undercuts the big names but it's not without issues. Here's our full review.

Although the Nokia 8 offers some decent specs for the price, it's just not a device that stands out in a crowded market. Build quality should be better and the fingerprint scanner can be a real pain.

Nokia 8 review

 

The Nokia 8 isn't disappointing because it's a bad phone. Actually, it's reliable, powerful and has a sharp, beautiful screen. What makes it disappointing is that as the first high-end Nokia phone to ever run Android -- something Nokia phones have only...

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: Is Nokia’s first Android flagship a true contender?

 

Our full Nokia 8 review reveals what we think of the performance, camera tech and everyday experience, after using the device as our full-time handset.

Pure Android ; Smooth performance ; Crisp, detailed screen

Lacking killer USP ; OnePlus 5 offers more for less

Overall, the Nokia 8 is a solid flagship device. Some smart hardware and a bit of vanilla Android marry together for a pleasing enough everyday user experience. And while the dual-lens camera isn’t the best out there, it’s perfectly good for capturing...

Nokia 8 review: A steal at £275

 

Nokia returns to the high-end smartphone market with aplomb – and a surprisingly low UK price

Nokia 8 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Nokia 8 has dual-sight mode, which means you can take photos and videos on the front and rear cameras at the same time. But is this just a gimmick designed to distract you from a poor-quality phone, or is it really worth buying? Read our full Nokia...
