Dr , 19 Aug 2018Loved this device .. using it from last 3 months . Everything runs smooth and impressed by it... moreA powerbank will never charge a device like a real charger. With the old powerbanks and the new type c usb, they do not like eachother, this problem is with all devices, i had lumia 950 xl and the powerbank could not charge it while in use, the power actually dropped. You need to let it rest and will charge, but slow. Their are new Powerbanks with newer technology that might have better approch to fast charging tech, but do not expect them to be a wall charger, they won't they can't, for the moment.
The camera is decent, but i prefer to use google camera than the stock one. Performance is fluid after using it about a month and the battery can last a day with moderate usage.
Mystique, 16 Aug 2018How about the camera after long term use ? becoz i read long term review of GSMArena, and the... moreDon't be fooled by comments. I've been using the Nokia 8 for just under 1 year now. The photos in daylight are just awesome. The Nokia camera app has improved low light image focus and processing ability drastically. That being said Nokia 7 rocks in low light images. The Nokia Camera Pro mode helps better adjust the setting and hence low light images , if you are serious about photographs. In no means is the camera inferior to other phones in its price range. In all other departments Nokia 8 is awesome. Sturdy. Worth the money. Timely updates. good battery life. It charges real fast and lasts easily over a day of normal use. Mos of the competitions phone started to show its age within a few months. And Iphone and Samsung are unjustifiably over priced. I'm a practical person, who wants my phone to perform well. You never know when you might run into an emergency. Nokia 8 has impressed me in that department. I have the polished blue version, and its a fingerprint magnet. I would advice using a matte finish if you like to use your phone naked.

I play Asphalat 8 , Mortal kombat , COC regularly and it give me 7-8 hours on screen time without any heating issue , Regular FB and whatsapp included . Fast charging is amazing . Camera is not as bad as they repute it .
Only problem i got with it is while charging with power bank it just wont charge (2.1 and 2.5 A output ) . Changed charging cable and tried it with another power bank still facing same issue . When i charge it with nokia adapter , it charge from 10% to 100% in like 90-100 minutes .
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2018This or Nokia 7 plus? I like the size but not the design that much. Both are value for money. If you are an average user it is both a good choice, for a heavier user the SD 835 in the Nokia 8 would be a better choice. However you can get both phones for around the same price, any Nokia is a good one.
It is an absolute great phone. We have two of them - fine photos and very speedy. Feels great and very robust hardware
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2018wow nokia 3310 is much better than this...Lol really?
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2018Do you use B&W camera and how is the result, is there enough detail in the photos??That camera is very good actually. I use it at low light when color would take to many artefects.

Scooby, 17 Aug 2018Oh really! That's great to hear Carol. I will update soon. As I have previously informed, i fa... moreI do not face this issue so i cannot really tell, cause for me is the same since i bouvht it, 2 days with light usage and 1and about a half with heavy or 10 Hours with very heavy usage, i mean nonstop on the screen. Can you tell more? Have you monitored what apps take how much battery? Are you sure is a 8.1 problem and not an app? Maybe to reset to factory defaults could help? What i can tell you and i have noticed is that it lasts way longer when i charge the battery in a "chaotic" way. I mean, i never let it go down u.der 25% or rarely, when i have no charger. I've also noticed that staying on data(not wi-fi) will significanly reduce battery endurance. Data actually drains half more then wi-fi. At least this are my results after some testing. At work i do not use wifi cause of obvious reasons. You do not want an admin to see where it connects. And there is where the battery is being drained the most, let's say about 20 percent on an hour on screen while it manages 11% with wi-fi. I do not know where the catch, i would like to study the problem more, but i have no time. Well i do not think is a problem. At the end, all devices have this "issue".

Any difference in battery performance?.
Battery issue has been rectified or still there after Aug patch update. Please let me know guys
atc, 16 Aug 2018it's back camera is vibrating n camera will not focused how can fix it? Hmm, that does not sound good. Take it back.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2018Is it true that the original camera app of Nokia 8 is that bad quality? Didn`t the software... moreThos is really hard to answer because, well. Trolls. Actually, the camera is ok. No, is not 808, lumia 920, 1020 or 950 but.... if you know your stuff, you can do a lot of ggod things with it... meaning, it ain't close to the bad reputation it gets. At the end.... i am still to see a good pic taken by iphone or samsung. All talk about how good they are, nobody's able to proove it.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2018This or Nokia 7 plus? I like the size but not the design that much. I actually love the design, but...y opinion. Anyway, does not matter how they all say, snapdragon 835 is just SUPERIOR. The rest? Your decision.
