I'm always amazed at the number of negative comments here on GSMArena when it comes to Nokia. I'd love to hear from all these whiners after the Nokia 8 goes on sale and flies off the shelves.
optxredhawk, 27 Aug 2017Do a research. Motorola is never considered a good camera phone. ahh I see that's why on 2015 moto is the 3rd best camera phone and in 2016 they are second to Samsung so make some research dude this nokia of yours will score 85 or 86 on DXOmark.
Carol, 27 Aug 2017That can be only cause you probably are living behind. I mean, you are oart of those 80 years ... more
I am embarrassed for this information of yous, really?? did you ever think that the first phone was invented by Motorola?? the first tower to transmit signal allowing us to make a phone call is also made by Motorola, so where is your NOKIA now?? dude nokia doesn't do anything in communication they just simply copy it.
more expensive that a OP5 and it has an lcd and smaller battery , er how about no
Hi!. Gsmarena is satisfied with camera quality but it´s charts desagree!!! Even Nokia 6 shows clearly more detail (see Lincoln´s face). Could this be that focus issue? Maybe a misslaignment between monochrome and color sensors -something fixable through sw- ? If not, Nokia 8 is a lot worse than competition. Even midrange. I hope gsmarena elaborate on this. Any way thank you for the great and extensive review
camera quality aint on par with the good old nokia used to deliver
a midranger like mi max 2 could do the same
Big brands and majority: samsung apple..and maybe huawei
Brand lovers or loyal consumers: sony htc lg motorola blackberry
Cheap market (china of course): oneplus xiaomi oppo vivo meizu...
Samsung haters because samsung destroyed their lover brand:nokia

Pleased to read comment from someone so down to earth. Agreed with every dot in it.
People is mostly comparing it with Chinese prices of devices not officially avaible in EU and US to "prove" pricing of this device is not right, but forgetting about prices in EU(and US for the matter of fact).
So this Nokia 8 has competitors in Honor9,OP5 and g6, which are priced right about the same and s8, iP7 which still costs a 150Â€ more, but obviously are proper flagships.
Nokia 9 will cost more, and that one will be considered as direct competitor to thoose 2, and others like Sony's XZ1 premium-pro, LG V30, htc ultra, pixel 2...
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2017irrelevant?? ahahahahaha your nokia cant even beast that in camera and speed what a fanboy are you.Apparently you are a fanboy, first read what i say and comprehend. Even if it had 41 mpx, your phone would still be irrelevant to the market. Nokia needs to fight Samesung not motorola. Motorola has almost no traction, it also does not present any threat for Nokia. It never did.
harwey, 26 Aug 2017So,good old Nokia is back.As I can see,they've built a proper phone after years,but that price... moreMi6 is there, but people are still buying s8, ip7 and similar flagship that cost 300$ more. Guess why!?
Because they are worth it!!!
I had 5 of Xiaomi mobile phones, and will never again buy one.
A few months I said I will consider it, after they offer devices officially one Europe (with service support and full warranty), but now I am sure that I won't even if that happens...never again Xiaomi.
If Nokia 8 comes with this price in EUROPE (that is 200Â€ less than s8 price, when it came out), it will be one of the best buys (g6 and op5 are other two to consider, but I'm expecting better sw and service support from Nokia).
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2017nope im 35 years old and nothing came from nokia empresses meThat can be only cause you probably are living behind. I mean, you are oart of those 80 years old who think iphones were the first smartphones and Samsung the second.
But, the truth is, almost everything you hold in your hand, my ungrateful one, is cause Nokia made it. Even that gsm network we all like when a call is made;).
Rex Tech, 27 Aug 2017Agreed. Also tell that to the Sony that used a 3840x2160 pixels screen on Sony XZ premium.the... moreDo you know why??? They stick on LCD but at 4k resolution. They should have gone with OLED instead in order the phones battery life to be better. Sadly S8 and Note 8 took the lead despite 1440p AMOLED. But the Nokia 8 is a different story. 1440p LCD=brightest screen of all time 701nits together with always on display!!!!!!!
Andrew Tan, 27 Aug 2017Nokia 8 is good but not great. In short summary - Nokia 8 won't bring back Nokia leading as ki... moreIt can be competed because it has already beat all phones in performance and battery thought not close to S8 or Note 8. The camera in low light also beat all phones especially audio!!!! So this is indeed the affordable, beast performer and indestructible phone of 2017. Some how you never feel or try the Nokia 8 in your hand.
Thank you GSMarena for the review, you cleared lot of doubts and review came out real quick.
As for the phone looking forward for launch in my county.
For people who always have something to grumble about Nokia. Well no one is forcing you to buy! If you like get it or get lost. Simple! Because people who loves the Nokia brand will always stick to it. Peace!🙏

Also tell that to the Sony that used a 3840x2160 pixels screen on Sony XZ premium.they literally want to ruin their phone :-/
Nokia 8 is good but not great. In short summary - Nokia 8 won't bring back Nokia leading as king.
Beside the processor, everything is still one step behind current flagship release this year. If this Nokia 8 is releasing on 2016 or 2015 then different story.
For now, it just a ok phone but cannot compete with recent flagship.

Why do people keep paying tons of money for crap like that?
