I had Nokia E7 years ago which had an Always On like feature as a screen saver that displayed the time and other information whenever the screen was locked. Glance in Android means the display will not be on all the time but is activated by a motion sensor, and that's not as good as Always On.
When this handset becomes available it could be interesting to make a comparison between the camera on the old Nokia N8 and the new Nokia 8.

The "Tech" is still with Nokia
The "PureView" branding is with Microsoft
So, they can use the Tech but can't mention PureView

And that's why glance screen has never been a battery hog on Nokia phones, because their always on display implementation has always been the best!! And you can always set it up to time out at the minutes you want when the glance screen is on. Again if you've never owened a Nokia phone before you wont know about all these.
I am a Documentary photographer and I have had a great time with the images and videos from my Lumia 830 the last camera phone to bear the original iconic Nokia logo. https://devrajbandla.photoshelter.com/portfolio/G00001__cP5zx.3M.
I was hopeful that Microsoft would create a remarkable Lumia for photogs like me experimenting with smartphone photography.They messed up Nokia.After a long wait it is heartening to see HMD take up the challenge and produce the Nokia 8.With Zeiss they can't go wrong,I am sure.As you said at the start you wanted a camera phone from Nokia and you got it. I too wanted a great camera phone and I am sure Nokia 8 will be that one.

Nokia 8 has capacitive buttons which means the keyboard will be even bigger. This is what the Google Pixel 2 should have been. Better design and headphone jack. Bezel-less, curved display, water-resistance are mostly gimmicks to me. I rarely use my S7 edge while in water. The S7 edge and S8 are just awkward to hold at texting or gaming.
The added bonus is the microSD slot. Something my Pixel does not have. Add the unlimited Google Photos storage. I can upload even my TV shows and movies on there. That's 2TB of even porn as long as it was uploaded by a Pixel or this Nokia 8. Based on what I actually need, the Nokia 8 fits the bill. Too bad it may never be on Verizon.
I just wished the dual lens was wide-angle or Telephoto. I don't like Huawei dual lens.
I think this phone is going to be great. I think some people are addicted to gimmicks that is why they say there is nothing special about this phone. One of the killer features of this phone is the size. 5is is well built device, I only hope for their sake that they can distribute it globally faster, that is usually the biggest killer of smartphone sales for a lot of companies. It seems only Samsung and Apple are capable of releasing their phones to a large number of countries, thatÂ’s one of the reason why they are so ahead of others.

Nokia 8 has glance screen . They somehow managed to get it on lcd where only a part of screen would be active which won't drain battery but they shied off telling how they did it. And in reviews also people are saying that they couldn't find a heat spot. That's called innovation

But please don't blindly say that Nokia 8 has the cooling process pipe. The Lumia 950 did have the cooling pipe but once soon found out by jerry rig everything, the phone does not have the cooling heat pipe. Instead, it was just NOTHING!!! In announcement they said, but in storage, nothing mentioned...
Egash Josh, 17 Aug 2017Have ever come across something called glance screen??? Nokia are the pioneers of Always on di... moreThat is I want to hear from you. Nokia had been innovating for almost 20 years. People who are born in the 21st century won't believe what I say because they are simply dumb thinking that Apple is the real innovator!!! Only the 90s people's or better the 80s people will not mind of Apple and what's more, they will say that Apple is the greatest copy maker innovation of all time.
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2017can you please tell your nokia to invent new os rather than rlying on pure androidExcuse you, they cannot make any new os platform. If they were to create a new one, it would be extremely difficult to do that. So it's too late to create a new os unless had Nokia not sign agreed with Microsoft and also would go for Android 6 years ago!!!!!
