With this type of behaviour it is quite clear their is a defect display and the device should have been taken back, crying here about how you own a defective device it ain't gonna help you much... so i consider it? Trolling.

The display, it's a bigger 18:9, yet FHD panel vs a smaller 16:9 QHD pixel denser panel. So yeah it's a tough call, and seems in your opinion Nokia 8 is the clear winner.
Well add to that list, audio department on Nokia 8 is also better than 7 plus since 8's sporting a 24bit 192kHz deck compared to 7 plus's ordinary headphone jack. And also the ip54 splash resistance. And also the phone is more pocket friendly sized.
Hmmm... could you do something like, exchanging the brand new 7 plus to a brand new Nokia 8 from a retail shop(from an authorized dealer) , i think now Nokia 8 is much cheaper than the 7 plus?

No comparison between the two.
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2018How do you mean not usuable, blank? Did the screen get spoilt all of a sudden or what?Progressive deterioration over a period of a week or so.
First it had three 3-4mm gray squares in specific locations on screen, with a very thin vertical blue line from each square pointing towards the top or bottom of the screen.
Then shortly after unlocking, the screen would show three vertical bands black/white/black that take over the screen over a period of 5 seconds after unlocking.
Then only showed half the top status bar garbled.
Then total blackout - a black screen.
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2018How do you mean not usuable, blank? Did the screen get spoilt all of a sudden or what?First three gray squares (about 3-4mm each) appeared in specific locations on screen, with one very thin vertical blue line originating from each square and pointing towards the upper or lower edges of the screen. Then it got worse with the screen displaying three vertical bands of equal size (black / white / black) shortly after the phone is unlocked (5 seconds), then half the top status bar (garbled) with the rest of the screen black, then no display at all. The deterioration occurred over a period of a week or so.
The phone was never dropped or been subjected to liquid spills. It looks as if it had just been unpacked from its box.

Lens is clean right? If the problem persists, you'd have to visit a Nokia care center

And i still think it was worth every penny. So yeah, i think it's a great deal. Device is snappy and smooth. Recommend installing Google Camera for better photo quality. Buy under warranty :)

Snapdragon 660 is the only downgrade (well it depends on your usage - snapdragon 660 is equilant to snapdragon 821 as i heard). Batery life wife, 7 plus is a better choice. And the display, you're getting a 18:9 panel and a marginally better camera. And you'll receive android Q which you won't receive on Nokia 8.
They're replacing it with a Nokia 7 plus because, Nokia 8 is no longer in production (i think). If you're comfortable using a 6 inch device, Nokia 7 plus is pretty much better than Nokia 8 right now, specially because of the camera.
Review your options after contacting Nokia, if you do not want a 7 plus, try asking them to replace the display or if there's no other option, 7 plus is a great device. (my opinion)
Less than 6 months after purchase, the display of my Nokia 8 (which I use only for data, it sits on a stand on my desk 99% of the time) progressively degraded to the point where it no longer displayed anything. Contacted Nokia Support who requested that I take it back to the point of purchase for repair under warranty. It has never been dropped (which would leave indelible marks on the outside of the phone) or been subject to liquid spills. It has no external signs of any wear and tear.
Took their advice, and brought it to the nearest authorized service center.
i) They claimed they do not repair, they replace;
ii) They will not replace it under warranty (they charge US$ 50); and
iii) To add insult to injury, they want to replace it with an inferior Nokia 7 Plus.
I complained by e-mail to Nokia Support, who ten days after receiving my initial complaint, and a reminder did not even bother responding.
Anyone with a remedy recommendation?
It cost 199 Euro right now in Greece..worth for this money? Will be used for telephony (3-6 hours daily), Internet (news reading, messaging etc) and some fotos..no gaming!
Any one experience rear camera always blurd??? I used my N8 now for 5months😥 what is my phone problem hardware or software??? Thanks...
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2018Camera better than s7?In short: no!
But keep my hopes high for the Pie update which promises a good improvement for photo quality, coming this December :)
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2018Camera better than s7?I don't think so! I had a s7 edge before buying this phone. After installing Google's camera software, the picture quality is pretty great. May be on par with s7 if not marginally better. But video is much better on s7. Faster autofocus on s7 helps, and Nokia's video is a mess as it loses focus from time to time! (default HMD baby made software's video)
Betch, 13 Nov 2018Hey Carol, my Nokia 8 LCD display got burn-in. What should I do now?LCD's do not burn in. They have a peoblem with image persistance or ghosting But it should go away if you do what cupckake said. Keep it on full light for a couple of hours. Use a lot of white, blue and gray. But better look for lcd burin wiper. In playstore It kind of does what i said. Turn the backlit lower then or at maximum brightnes (do not forget, max brightness is also a factor of panel degradation). Anway, let the program run for an hour two. See if anything improved.
Betch, 13 Nov 2018Umm... Do you think it will work? (Currently set maximum brightness)Depends on what kind of burn in you're experiencing. For me I've experienced some kinda burn in (maybe a software glitch) after texting on whatsapp for a few hours. The whatsapp taskbar (topmost part) was there like a stamp in every app even after restarting! After usung the device with maximum brightness, and playing a few videos, slowly that burn in dissappeared completely. Since this is a LCD display, you'll most probably be able to fix it! If it didn't fix your problem, search YouTube for dead pixel healing videos and keep playing one for a few hours, it might work.
Take it into nokia care if nothing worked :)
The newly added smartphones are Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 devices. This was confirmed by HMD GlobalÂ’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas on Twitter.
The tweet read: @sarvikas: Nokia 3, 5, 6 and 8 of 2017 will also get Pie. This hopefully helps understand why everything cant happen at the same time.
Crazy-cupcakes-2017, 13 Nov 2018Try using the device with maximum brightness for a while... Umm... Do you think it will work? (Currently set maximum brightness)
