Anonymous, 24 May 2018Why pay 700 euros for a device with the exact same software as their 200 euro device?For the same reason you pay others for the exact same software.
Could have been better with the SD845, bigger battery, and yeah....
Stereo speakers for this price.
Akash, 24 May 2018How it's a Chinese smartphone? HMD Global is a Finnish company. Get your facts right before co... moreHMD is "finnish" company, right. But what do that "finnish" company? Just marketing. Other things (development, hardware, firmware, even package) doing Foxconn. And it has biggest share in HMD. So this"finnish" company is just PR fake for misinformed people.
Please for a review, record a video, where you can hear the mic quality.
Please, not just that standard "cars passing by", I would love to hear a voice or anything but cars that are 250 meters away.
IsaacDroid, 24 May 2018No treble and no sd845, no thanksEvery device shipped with Android 8.x HAS (!) to support treble. This is a direct requirement by Google itself.
And for not having SD845: Yeah, true. Could have been better.
I love the design. I don't expect the camera to impress - it ain't Lumia, they don't know how to do that yet. This and older SoC used (which I don't mind if it wasn't for the price), make the price ridiculously high.
I find scratching the audio jack extremely arrogant - they aren't great brand just yet, they still need to fight for the position on top.
IsaacDroid, 24 May 2018No treble and no sd845, no thanksSure it has Treble, it comes out with Oreo and is on Android One. As for the S835, sure, it's a bit of a bummer, but it's on par with the Kirin 970 in the Mate 10 Pro and P20 Pro.
Only a tiny upgrade over the Nokia 8...and almost twice the price. Nope.
Wait, why is nobody complaining about the display? Pixel 2 XL got slammed for the blue shift.

Anonymous, 24 May 2018Why pay 700 euros for a device with the exact same software as their 200 euro device?Agreed, stock Android sucks.
I agree with everyone else. It's not that the 835 is a bad processor, it's not, but for top end money you expect the top end processor.
Cheap Chinese powerbanks has thr same edges design for 3 years at least. Outdated chinaphone with insane price that brings nothing from original Sirocco luxury.
The Snapdragon 835 in combination with the price tag of a top flagship smartphone does not match. On just have to wait for a month or two and this discrepancy will be gone.
Here in Europe you can already get the Sirocco for € 530,-.
