Hey guys. Does the polished varient get scratched easily compared to the matt varient. Im hopeing to use the phone without a case so will buying the polished one would be a BAD idea ???
The battery hasn't been great ever since I bought this phone. It was average. But I agree with most of you that after the June security update the battery has gotten worse. Not bad but I notice bigger drop than before. I wish Nokia could role an update to give users control to adjust the display resolution like Samsung. I feel if we can drop it to full HD 1080p. The battery life will be good.

I did an format after the last 8.1 update. Cause i do not like how android updates, a lot of times gives errors and crippels the devices. Anyway, i also have noticed that the battery last lesser when drains under 20 percent. I do not know why. But i habe encounter the problem more then 2 times. Since then i never let it go under 25% and charge it to somewhere 90. When i chargile it to 100 it lasts longer. But never ever let it under 20. I would recomand to charge when reaches 30%. See if something changes.

I use both data and wifi. Currently connected with hotspot.
I agree with that I shows 2 days and changes to 1 day. The days are reduced within mints ha hah
But hardly I am getting 18 to 20 hrs all usage. Not getting one day compared to Motorola Xiaomi and Redmi ( by the way not a Chinese phone fan)
People suggested me to buy that, but I trust Nokia . Used a lot. 2 days is much better than my device buddy. I was getting that before update. Almost 1 half day.
One thing I can say excluding this everything is way better.
But main thing I observed battery performance issue only after 8.01 update and before that I was fine.
Have u received July patch update?. Hope it will clear once get the patch updates.
Scooby, 12 Jul 2018Hi All, I am a Nokia User since 2 months. I have few doubts. Please guide.. As mentioned i... moreWell, their are a looot of questions that could be asked but for the moment it sounds ok. Do not take the battery remain calculator seriously, it will just drive you mad, make this test if you don't believe me. Charge it to 100. Live it 10 min after 100% mark(or more then 10) is reached. Take it out of the current socket and do not use it for 3 Hours or more. You will suddently see a 3 or 4 days remain mark. Anyways, going back to the problem. Are you connected all the time ? With? Wi-fi or data? Data will eat way more battery then wi-fi, especially in poor area signal. So expect more drain when.using ut. On screen time will not be more the. 12 hours, no matter what you're doing. But 10 hours is still, a lot, for continuasly on screen usage. So in my opinion, your device is ok, you are just using it more intense, i suppose? And that is why is showing 10 hours mark. Kind of how much nokia l8 lasts if constantly pushed. Normaly i get a day and a half with about 6 hours screen usage. I got two days two with the same usage. But i think that happens only when not using data at all.
I am a Nokia User since 2 months.
I have few doubts. Please guide.. As mentioned in previous comments, I feel battery drain issue after 8.10 update as previously mentioned by some people. All trouble shooting done as per reviews.
Please confirm ...
1. Removed from 100 % before 2 Hrs. It's not drained in idle today ( If it's idle after 20 -30 mints goes to 99 - 97% usually)
2. Started using after 2hours 100% (usage a video call, Browsing) it's reduced to 82%. & Shows About 10hrs 5 mint left (settings). Once started using you tube along with browsing (using split screen) that 5 mint will changes as 9hrs 43 mint.
3. Got yesterday battery back up after full recharge 20 hrs10 mints (charged @5%)
Please suggest me is it a Good battery back up compared to other mobiles or drains.
I charge twice in a day. Only yesterday it's like this.
Now when I post this battery is 79% (took 20 mints).
Please assist immediately.
Last full charge ( 4h 57 mint)
Screen usage (2h 7m)
About (10h 5m left)
The phone is Best unless it goes to the service center. Whereby you will never it get back for months... reason... replacement parts not available...and that too when the phone is under warranty.
currently stuck with lg g6 & nokia 8. which has better audio ouput through earphones? appreciate any answer thanks.

Search "Best of Android 2017" and there'll be a series of detailed comparisons of best 2017 Android flagships - explained sectionwise (Display, Performance, Camera, etc). Read the whole thing and you'll realize what a performer Nokia 8 really is.
Costing around 350-400 USD, this thing is absolutely the best bang for buck smartphone right now. (mid-range smartphones cost more i think)
--- Really smooth performance (I'm using Nova Launcher)
--- Audio department is great
--- Display is a class leading LCD panel
--- Batery life is great
--- Nokia is known for build quality
--- Kinda outdated design (16:9 panel)
--- Camera performance is bad at low lighting conditions (In good lighting condition, it can take pretty good looking shots)
Alternative available = Nokia 7 plus
--- 18:9 display (but no QHD)
--- Snapdragon 660 is quite good, can handle day-to-day tasks without any problems
--- Camera is better than Nokia 8
--- Audio is a downgrade (no 24but/192Hz support - loudspeaker also weaker)

Ultra fast, uptodate android (security included); it's true that the first camera app was a little poor (specially on low light scenarios)... but with the update to the pro app (in June, at least here in Chile) improved a lot.
It may take some blurry images in low light conditions still, but it was a major improve eith the update.
I tried Samsung note 8, s9 and huawei p20 pro: The lens response is fastest (less blurry images), but with good ilumination and/or outside pictures it take awesome pics.
The most importante thing is that here in Chile I bought it 3 month ago at U$350.00, at the same time the 3 models that I refer earlier were around U$1000.00.
Hope it help you!
Ps. Sory for my english, it's a little out of use hahaha
I am a bit confused reading the original review and long term review. Also, some sites are giving positive feedback of Nokia 8 camera and for some sites the camera performance is absolutely poor. Any Nokia 8 user here who can comment?
which is better lg g6 - 32-bit/192kHz audio or nokia 8 - 24-bit/192kHz audio when playing media? (youtube, music, movies)
the OZO audio is for the recorded ones right? it does not affect when you're playing in the web app or downloaded music/movies.
thanks. been thinking if nokia 8 or lg g6.
Simple question: Am considering moving to this phone from Nexus 6P. Camera is a very important feature for me. Has the camera update recently fixed some of the shortcomings mentioned in most reviews - that mostly are from fall 2017? Or are there limitations still, even if considered an upper midrange device? It is either this or the 7 Plus from the same brand...

Day before yesterday only 4% of battery drain throughout the night. But yesterday I unplugged it at 11:30PM and whrn I woke up at 8:00AM it was 80% means the total drain was 20%. When I checked the details, the app usage data was not available and when I checked the breakdown the highest usage was Phone Idle which was 9%. Don't know how to tackle it, will a hard reset work? Any other suggestions?
