It's absolutely amazing phone...I am using this product since 1 year and I haven't faced any problem till now 💪💪👍👍👍
Psaahmme, 30 Jul 2019It's selling for $120 USD now and I'm so tempted but the negative comments here is putting me off. I brought nokia 8 before 6 mounth, its an awesome phone, nice screen awesome performance very nice camera specially when you downlod google camera, go buy it, it's so much better than samsung a50 and huawei p30 lite, remember that it made to be a flagship.

Nokia 7 Plus better battery, bigger size, better design and more features in camera (camera is good too).
SD 660 is capable of playing games like PUBG on high graphics.
Nokia 8 is a performance beast, camera is breathtaking if you install Gcam and you can hold it in one hand.
But its design isn't as appealing and battery doesn't last 1.5 day which quite a few 2019 phones do.
Realme 3 Pro is another great phone. Camera is comparable iPhone 8 and better than A70, performance is better than Nokia 7 Plus and battery lasts full day.
But it doesn't have NFC and needs protection against scratches - otherwise, it's durable against falls.
If you want gaming beast, go for Nokia 8.
If you want a balanced phone, go for Nokia 7 Plus.
If you want another balanced phone with better performance, excellent and feature rich camera, go for Realme 3 Pro.

This phone was made for performance. It crushes Pocofone F1 when it comes to playing PUBG (Ultra HD with between 30-60 FPS). My friend has this phone.
You might have heard its battery is bad but it lasts same as Pocofone F1 in PUBG which has a 4000 mAh battery. So either its battery is good or Pocofone F1 battery is bad.
If you want to know about its camera, Google "Nokia 8 Gcam". Open the first XDA link and see picture samples shared by Nokia 8 users. Night sight mode is godly.
If you install Gcam, even in 2019 its camera easily ranks in top 10 (if not top 5) in its price range. Much better than A50.
If you buy another device, it should only be for reasons like "I want 2 day battery timing, I want bigger screen size, I want more appealing design, I want infrared port, etc".
As someone else said, this phone is literally one of the best ever made.

Sorry for my bad english :)
As a user of this phone for 3 months, I guess I do have now the right to give my opinion about this phone.
I'll start with its cons:
- LCD burn-in, but hey its only temporary
- Battery is below average for me. I play games a lot
- Dark mode but does not apply in settings, I mean when browsing settings
- My fingerprint data lost when the phone is drained to 0%, had to clear its system app's data and restart.
- Bootloader cannot be unlocked thanks to its October 2018 security update
- Camera (not when in low-light and more visible noise when zooming)
- Performance (will warn when it gets 50°C)
- Stock android, le getting fond of it
- Now its cheap
- Connectivity (I noticed this when playing an online game with friends. Same area, they have midrange phones, I got more bars of signals than them, with it I get better ping. This phone do not share the good ping/connection when they are connected to my hotspot, only mine was good.)
Sorry for my bad grammar and I hope my opinion will prove useful.

If the health is below 80%, replacing the battery will solve it
Riyas, 07 Aug 2019I bought Nokia 8 in December 2017. After using it for 1.5 year, it randomly restarted 6-7 time... moreSeems like the battery needs replacing since you're not getting any of the issues while plugged in to the charger. Li-ion batteries degrades over time making the battery unable to supply required current at the voltage range your phone needs.
Is there any other repair shop around your area to check if the problem is with the motherboard or just the battery?
And if the motherboard needs replacing, i think you should be better with buying off a new phone for that money as Carol suggested. Or try to purchase a device with cracked display and use it to do the repair. Still I think you should be good to go with a battery replacement. On ebay batteries are available from around 12 US$ onwards.

I bought Nokia 8 in December 2017. After using it for 1.5 year, it randomly restarted 6-7 times in row. It will restart maybe once, or 10 times in a day. It is mostly restarting when I open camera app. Although this doesn't happen when I am charging the phone. It only happens when I am not charging the phone. There's also a sound issue where the sound freezes or is not audible when the volume is full. Again, it doesn't happen when I am charging the phone. I tried resetting the phone several times. Last week, I sent it to the shop. He first said that it's a battery issue and today he told me it's a motherboard issue and I need to replace the motherboard. My phone just lost warranty in December 2018. It will cost me 16k Rupees to fix my phone. I don't know if the shopkeeper is lying or not. Any help will be appreciated. Let me know if this issue is common in Nokia 8 and what should I do next.
Bought it on February for just 200Â€ (6GB 128GB version), it is fast, and it has a great camera.My last phone was an iPhone 8, and this has a better camera and screen.
Battery last me all day, 50% bright. It has usb c and wireless charging. It is fast, very fast.
I dont miss my iPhone, this has Android 9 stock, with no bloatware, and the lates security updates evert month.
