I just bought the Nokia 8. Can anyone please suggest the best microphone I can use with this phone, mainly to do youtube tutorials, so my voice has to be crystal clear. Seems like a great phone, the specs for video are impressive, always been a Nokia fan, their phones just work great all the time.

Can u tell me one thing? Are you facing any battery drain issue. I purchased this May 7th. Using since then. As I previously mentioned(old post) after Oreo 8. 1 update, I feel battery drainage.
Now I charge 100% & now it's 98%. after just browsing GSMArena. No apps in the background running. Do u feel this is a normal drain. I checked with the service centre and they said there is no battery leakage or Liquid damage for my device.
I charge twice in a day with heavy usage. ( Browsing, IMO call,You tube, what's app, surfing, Facebook, video editing, smule, dubmash).
If anyone else facing please let me know?.

Just because you turned from a typical troll into a person that actually has a problem, does.not mean you can get out clean. Then trying to pin-point the "abuzer", it ain't working. I still hold my ground, and if you were so hungry of knowing how i behave, you could have already seen that i actually try to help people (if i can) with their problems, when they actually need help or advices. The only ones i bash are the liers, ignorants and trolls. Aand nope, i do not feel guilty or appologize for that.

I realize you have had no problems with your device and am glad on your behalf because of that, but the way you bash and abuse other people who haven't been as lucky as yourself isn't exactly charming. Stop it.
arvidasentaja, 30 Jul 2018128 GB, 6 GB RAM or 64 GB, 4 GB RAM And I'm telling you, I got a version with 128 GB storage and 4 GB RAM. Strange, isn't it?
Crazy-cupcakes-2017, 28 Jul 2018Looks like you n me have got the best nokia 8 devices. Me here, never encountered a problem :D... moreWell, you know, sometimes is the user:). As for the camera, is not bad in my opinion i own lumia 1020 and 950xl and the mighty nokia n8. I compared them to see if all this crapp about nokia 8 camera being bad is true. I am not bragging here, just for the info, so to know against what device nokia 8 was put on, by me of course. While dx0 mark(aka: wannabe) has put them all in bad light i have hard time to find this samsungs that actually have better cameras, also this iphones that make better pictures then any device ever, really hard times. Me, being one of the few that's not a trend sheep you can figure it out i had the chance to test them against eachother also. Well not that specific as with my own devices, but well... anyway against my devices, Nokia 8 stood well in good light conditions. A bit more sharpness here and there but nothing one can complain about. In the dark, was not that great at focusing, that i think is the main problem. Focusing in the dark. But well, never test it again after the camera pro update. Now, the focus is way faster and if people know a bit about cameras, they can take good shots in bad light also. It is true, the camera could be better, but it ain't as bad as all sheppy people here that never used it, are trying to claim. Am i satisfied with the camera after all this big guns i had? Actually it is ok. All i miss is the real lumia camera software, this "maschup" is not quite there.

Go to somesung comment sections, and tell them this storys. Go to apple, sonny and they will all call you: Troll. Why. Cause you started with a bunch of nonsense. Read you comment first, before telling me to grow up, you might discover who need to do that.
A normal person. Would send this device back without commenting like a kid on a rampage game. A normal person would have told them to change it. Would have openend it right their and if the problem persists would have send to nokia the proof that their is something bad going on and of course would have give the device back and would for sure try other retailer. That way, HMD can identify if the devices are fake, retailer really bought them or they have a problem in a factory. Insead you came here tallking nonsese without any proof of being true, shouting like aad man how Nokia decived you(still laighting at this joke) Good luck with that mentality in this word. Might help you cros a bridge.

The Nokia 8 however reports it has 3.9 total RAM, whereas it should have 6 according to its specs. So no, I'm pretty sure my Nokia 8 has 2 GB less than promised on the box.

I think it is 6gb ram but only 4gb ram free at the time you check it. 2 gb ram already in used after first boot. 6gb ram phone wont show 6gb free ram. I doubt it show 128gb free storage either. You should have less user available storage.

It doesn't have to. :-) I have used the Google camera app (https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-arnova8G2/ ) and have gotten some quite decent results. Also, the Pro mode of Nokia's own can improve low-light shots, but it requires some tinkering. If it is really dark you might as well use the monochrome camera, since you won't see much colour unless you use the flash anyway.
So actually I think Nokia 8 has a quite decent camera, although it can't compare with Samsung or Apple or Huawei.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2018Can any nokia 8 user tell me about the performance of the mobile and the battery for the (4gb ram)Simply put, it's an excellent smartphone for everyday use. I'm very fond of it as a user.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2018Guys .. which is better nokia 8 64 gigs 4 ram.. or xiaomi mi6? ..pls helpI think you should go for Nokia 8.

It's the first time I heard somet... moreI have asked the seller to discuss this with Nokia, since my attempt didn't get us anywhere. If they can confirm that I've got a faulty device they can send me a new one, provided it is how it should be (with 6 GB RAM). If it turns out that the 128 GB storage version in fact does not have more than the 64 GB storage version, i.e. 4 GB RAM, I'll go for a refund instead. Maybe I'll purchase Nokia 9 instead when that arrives in that case, or the Pixel 3.

kri, 29 Jul 2018hi guys, am using iphone 6s from past 1-1/2 years an excellent phone except battery performanc... moreI also used a 6s before buying the nokia 8. Comparing iphone 6s with nokia 8, nokia 8 wins on :-
--- Batery life
--- Audio (loudspeaker & headphones audio quality)
--- Performance (iphone 6s is fast, but Nokia 8 is faster because it's sporting a snapdragon 835)
--- Display = Nokia 8 has a QHD panel
--- ip54 splash resistance (its not something to be proud of,but at least it's there)
ios vs android is a tough one. But since this Nokia has stock/pure android you will feel at home.
Camera is a tough call. I think (may be I'm wrong) Nokia 8 has the better camera. I didn't like the iphone 6s camera because I owned a S7Edge before that and it had a beast of a camera. In good lighting conditions, nokia 8 takes beautiful shots. But it suffers in dark/indoor shots. Overoll it's a really great device...
