Most people will say no, bc they are manufactured in Asia. But they clearly doesn't know anything about phones, bc 95% of the phones are manufactured in Asia. Even Samsung, Apple, Blackberry, htc, LG.
Yes right down to the IP54 dust proofing and water proofing!!! Lol
Nokia won't ever be back because it's a Finnish company to trying to cash in.
When they start bringing flagships that challenge Samsungs and IPhones with the camera tech Nokia had before it disappeared then Nokia might be back just in its Finnish form!
i know this is subjective, but nokia 8 design is just normal for me, more like low-midrange phone design. i think i have seen some unknown chinese brand phone with design like this, not 100% identical but a little bit. i just dont want to use device more expensive than s8 with normal design. I would choose Huawei P10 Plus over this.
so, to answer the question, no. 'Nokia' still not there.
pl2rts, 20 Aug 2017It's not allergic, it's cause the bezel is making the phone body even bigger. 5.5inch screen ... moreThat's understandable, as I don't like large phones either. But based on videos and pictures, the Nokia 8 seems entirely pocketable. It doesn't come across as oversized at all. Again, that's just based on videos of people handling it.
hamedans, 20 Aug 2017its like lumia 820, 800 etc same specs as flagship and little innovation. Nokia 8 has ozo audi... moreSince when "liquid" cooling is a feature?
As far as I know its necessity bcz Qualcomm SoC's are actually sh!t with a 3 year streak now.Uterly ineficient and hot.
Have you ever seen a "pipe" in Huawei or Apple phone?
Phone is more then OK, but phone is overpriced to be used by Nokia to make comeback in flagship segment, competition is too strong Samsung, LG, Xiaomi, Sony, Huawei, Apple, HTC....
For me, being 'unique' is a huge PLUS for a brand, specially if it was known for it's superiority to the mobile world. By mean of unique, is something (maybe a feature) where people can immediately recognize that it belongs to that certain brand alone. Using the stock android may offer wide range of advantages like faster updates, etc. But perhaps designing a brand's own itineration of the operating system makes more sense. This will add more to the brand's unique feature and perhaps will help the brand prove the mobile world that they can do more, they can make things better than the usual way. After all, that's how NOKIA was used to, as far as I can remember. I believe that the brand is back, but still waiting to show more on it's potentials. Perhaps time can only tell just how much.
-NEOPHYTE-, 20 Aug 2017The Nokia 8 has nothing special or unique about it, fanboys keep carrying this brand...its like lumia 820, 800 etc same specs as flagship and little innovation. Nokia 8 has ozo audio, liquid cooling, probably best front camera on market, and good quality. for me it is enough. if you want more innovations and features wait for Nokia 9
Pia, 20 Aug 2017Yes they are back but not as we expected to be but still a good comeback nevertheless...i stil... moreActually it IS still around
....but its not the great alternative it was touthed to be.OS without ecosystem is dead OS.If MS with 5% marketshare couldnt convince the developers,than Sailfish even less.
L337, 20 Aug 2017It's not the bothies or livestreaming that people will enjoy. I think it's the fact that it co... moreMate 9 has all of those.
If you want the same but a more powerful version with smaller bezels... wait for the Huawei Mate 10
The rear camera is the deal-breaker for me. Other specfications are great, especially OZO Audio.
Stinger430, 20 Aug 2017I think it's a fantastic phone. I'm still trying to understand why so many people are allergic... moreIt's not allergic, it's cause the bezel is making the phone body even bigger.
5.5inch screen and both sides have at least 10mm of bezel. Makes your phone bigger and wont fit in your pocket so you need to have a bag to carry it around.
It's not the bothies or livestreaming that people will enjoy. I think it's the fact that it combines a lot of stuff from other flagships. Lots of brands don't put a MicroSD slot. Or a headphone jack. Or the QHD screen. Or the all-metal build.
Every other phone is missing something that only the 8 combines.
As a premium mid range phone with high end chipset: yes
As a counterpart to the biggest flagships like Galaxy S8 or iPhone 8: no
And the price of Â€ 600 has to come down a bit, because a better S8 only costs Â€550
It's not Nokia, it's some Chinese company using its name. It will die pretty soon, probably.
The Nokia 8 has nothing special or unique about it, fanboys keep carrying this brand...
It looks like HMD has inherited the old and proven wrong Nokia strategy. Announcing a flagship device late with hardware matching other high end phones released many months ago. By the time Nokia 8 reaches the actual markets it will be more expensive than most of these similar SD835 devices, probably there will be also new high end devices announced.
On that time and price point cross there probably won`t be many wanting to buy, aside from hardcore Nokia fans maybe
