The only thing wrong with this phone was the camera specs. I know this was nokia's first flagship and for most of their first generation of phones they played it safe but a 2.0 aperture with 1.12 pixels isn't flagship. Only a year later the 7 plus has 1.8 aperture and 1.4 pixel sensor. The 8 was way more expensive than the 7 plus, but granted at that stage they hadn't made alot of money yet and their sourcing of better parts was just beginning.
Snapdragon 835, fast updates, clean android and a price of 320 euro. I think it's one if not the best option for now.
Best phone I have owned, long battery life good update plan by Nokia/HMD, and best of all cheap since Nokia released the Sirocco even thought it really isn't £500 better than the standard Nokia 8, noticed the UK prices have just dropped to £260 in the high street so they are a bargin, you cannot find a better phone for the price

Seriously, I charged 87% today morning @ 10.00 a.m after that normal browsing till now no videos yet, no music, just browsed flipkart, read emails, Amazon, and call for few mints my battery @ 1.18 p.my is 43% as of now I type this it reduces in minutes. No auto updates on, no apps running behind.. everything is fine... As someone suggested.. I tried even connecting to WiFi same issue. No liquid damage or any other damage as tested from service. Center. Can't figure out.. :( why it drains so fast.. rest everything is fine in my device...
No updated to september patch as I don't received any updates for my previous comment.Guys suggest me a solution for this. Now regret this for buying for 28k. :( .
3090 MAh is not get an average battery life...
Well, i uninstalled, till this morning was still showing up in store, then showd, not compatible with my device, then it was gone from updates list. Most probably, another error by HMD with the camera update.
nexusman74, 06 Sep 2018Are you sure it's not a user error? It usually is, remember? ;-)I am pretty sure i know how an update looks like. Thanks for the concern. As if you insinuate something else: Yes i am sure.
Received camera update, huge software arround 247MB. They just got rid of lumia interface so no mor focus control, i.stead we get stupid futures like. Some strange faces only tree and motion. The a long time ago Nokias idea with live images. I actually prefer lumia camera...
Good News guys. Camera will be improved with Pie update. Will receive a few new features as well...
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2018I take it that Android Pie is the last major update that this will receive now? Nokia 7 plus w... moreIt's because HMD promised 2 generations of OS updates and 3 years of Monthly Patches... (nokia 8 launched with Android N)
Rave, 28 Aug 2018If you prefer design go for Honor play.If you prefer stock Android go for NokiaHonor play is the better choice.
I buyed nokia 8 and believe me this was my biggest mistake. Only the good thing about nokia 8 is stock android and snapdragon 835. Take a suggestion that don't buy this phone.
I take it that Android Pie is the last major update that this will receive now? Nokia 7 plus will get Android Q however.
Any improvement for the battery ( facing draining issue since 8.1 update) for the new patch updates...?
Any other issues with the patch updates?
Please give genuine update

JDanny, 04 Sep 2018Hi! Does it have aptx or aptx HD support after latest updates? ThanksDidn't mean to reply direct to you with the HDR+ comment...
Reference AptX, no, the latest update does not support it. It does support AAC which to my uneducated ears sounds more than fine with my AKG Y50BT headphones and Spotify on extreme quality. YMMV.
JDanny, 04 Sep 2018Hi! Does it have aptx or aptx HD support after latest updates? ThanksAnyone with this phone needs to install the Google HDR+ camera app from this link as it makes it loads better.
