Can someone check whether the Night mode is set to Always ON in developer options?
I can't identify if there are any differences between always on and always off or the toggle doesn't work. Whenever i set it to always off, it reverse automatically to always on, once i exit settings menu. (maybe Android P related)
Thanks in advance.

Did the device felt down? Raduo waves? Get's hot? Is tge system stable? Is tgis noise their when you hear music, is lauder then the music? Did the noise appeared after the update to orero, or after a while?

A buzzing noice (like a electric current passing through) or a barely audible noice (like a pshhhh or shooooo sound)? Default earphone's impedance is 16 Ohm. If you experience a shhhh sound at low volumes, lower impedance might be the reason (i experienced that with my nokia pair of earphones).
- Try plugging in a few different high quality (32 Ohm impedance) earphones to find out the noice is device related or due to a defective pair of earphones.
**Try to observe if anything changes when charger is plugged in:
- If the noice comes only when the charger is plugged in, that might be due to a current leak.
- If the noice goes away once the charger plugged in, that might be due to a defective battery.
**If you think it's software/OS related:
-Do a soft reset(restart the phone), if this doesn't resolve,
-Do a factory reset
-Or you can update to Android P and check if the problem persists...
**If nothing worked,
-take the phone to a Nokia care center, they'll help :)
Please somebody help me! My Nokia 8 in low volume do Static Noise .. in default headphones and integrated speaker .. I have Android 8.1.0 .. Please .. in Android 7 .. it didnt happen

LorpoGokko, 22 Dec 2018And add to that, now Pixel 3's ported camera works with Night sight. So we might not need HMD'... moreI already tried it out. Nightsight works. In adequate light, and steady hands you can get pretty good shots. And even in serious low light conditions, if you needed to take a photo, you can actually, but the photo comes out soft. But much better than the default camera's long exposure pro mode shot, where you can't even see what's in the photo properly.
I'm not an expert, but i think it's the HDR+ processing of google which makes their camera far superior to HMD's one.

Apk can be found at: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-arnova8G2/
It's a bit slow right now. Recommend turning off the motion photo mode.
Hello guys, I like this phone, but how long dies the battery last. I am a heavy user both gaming and internet.

Can you run short test how this Pixel camera compares to default app?

Juho Sarvikas's twitter stated that Nokia 8 will receive a major camera update boosting the camera performance. And as you've mentioned, they were premature to release the final beta as the official update part 1.
Google assistant works fine for me.
Update gave a fresh look, a beautiful notification shade.
I ran antutu benchmark and the performance is on par with Oreo if not improved marginally. Oreo score was 205000 and Pie score is 211000.

May be this Android P is worth a shot... (may be you should watch a couple of YouTube videos to see these new visual overlays)
12 hours on Android P :-
+Didn't encounter any problems like random restarts or batery draining issues. Seems like the OS is stable. Nothing unusual.
+New looks of the notifications and menus are great. (this can be subjective since it's a matter of personal preference)
***You can't always use hardware keys(Volume + and -) to switch between different sound profiles. But there's a new way to just "tap" to switch between "Sound On, Vibrate and Silent" modes.
- I like the oreo way of switching to do not disturb mode.
-The new recent app cards are meant to be used on devices with gesture nevigation. Since we have hardware keys, right now it's no so convincing. But with January full Pie features update, things might change.
**also, Clock on the top left part of the screen is meant for devices with a NOTCH, since ours doesn't have a notch, it feels a bit awkwardly placed. (may subject to personal preference)
Notice: It's adviced that you should factory reset your device after a major Android OS update since it will ensure long term smoothness of the OS. (not compulsory) I didn't do it, due to the fact we'll most probably receive another major update in January 2019 and i didn't encounter any hiccups, freezes or restarts.
***this thread https://community.phones.nokia.com/discussion/30383/google-widevine-l1-drm-certification-missing-in-pie-on-nokia-8 indicates an issue with streaming hd contents from Netflix and Amazon prime (Android P related). I don't use any of those services. Youtube works fine...
Feel free to ask questions if there are any...
And I'll keep you guys updated if I ran into any troubles with Android P
I'm from Sri Lanka (Asian). You guys will receive the update within a few days.
Thanks for reading and have a nice day as always...

I'm on Android Pie. Good news = so far everything runs smoothly.
+ Smoothness is noticeably improved
+ New notification screen/style
+ New silent mode (different from do not disturb i guess :D)
+ Screenshots can be edited directly after taking them
+ Colorful settings menu
+ You can select dark or light theme as you desire
+ Scrolling through a text phrase you're typing is much easier now. You're getting a magnified view...
* Recent apps cards are a bit different.
*Camera app is not improved by any means (didn't test much though)
- Time is displayed on the top left side of the screen. I prefer the top right side. Can't change the position of it (seems like that, if someone know a way, please comment, thanks in advance)
So everything is pretty much like a new paint scheme over the old Oreo. Well it's not bad, in fact it looks a bit better than oreo in my eyes. I'll keep you guys updated if I ran into any problems. More comments on battery life tomorrow. Have a good day...
LorpoGokko, 21 Dec 2018Where are you located? I'm in Germany and Pie is not out here yet.Germany here, android Pie is on waiting mode. I really do not want to download it.

I am not updating just because some *** decided to accuse them of holding back the update and they got freaq mode and now want to push the updates just to proove is not true. We know is not true, HMD should play more mature, this is kind of childish reaction to some trolls. Instead of this they should have release a great statment mocking them too.
Cupcakes, 21 Dec 2018Pie is available for me... Not sure if i should update or not... Where are you located? I'm in Germany and Pie is not out here yet.
I will update in a few hours. Need to backup my stuff first... I'll notify if there's any serious issues/bugs after updating...
