For the moment android does not let this app to be replaced. While their are apps that can play as default, simple gallery can't do that, but who knows, maybe in the future? Anyway, to "repair" the priblem, activate photos app, go to menu and sign out of tour account. After that, the app will work on the device only? No risc of uploading somethin in the clound. For more precaution do not use it, but only from camera app. I think Nokia 8 will receive the lumia camera. When that happens, i hope they will do something about this default viewing thing. Anyway, i hope it solves your problem. Have a nice day.

I'm wondering if you can help me with this.
I've installed the Simple Gallery again and deleted the QuickPic app. But from the camera app viewfinder, when I tap the photo to view the latest photo taken, nothing happen. It does not open the Simple Gallery by default to view the photo.
Please advise if you know how to work around this.
Thank you in advance!
Can we change screen resolution to FULL HD from 2K? (like we can do in Samsung S8)
I would like to buy this phone, but what is the best way to get the 6 GB version in North America? Amazon has some options but all for 4GB and people comment that everything comes in Chinese without any English manual.

Well, i always look for the best private apps, from no permision to very little and with no stinky privacy declaration, so i will always put privacy before funktionality, but in the same time. I look for funktionality too. So, Simple gallery is exactly what i needed. Aim kind of the same. Quickpic is not for me, i do not pike tgeir privacy declaration, and the perimsions they ask for. Way to many just for an gallery app.. anyway, the problem with "camera not seeing" the gallery app, is most probably because their is no system setting to choose one app for default picture viewing.. funny, cause for browser, home button and so in, their is. Na ja, anyhow, for me and my love for privacy, their is no app that can beat this, at least not for now. And tgey update it quite often, also a good sign.
Does the phone vibrate when you unlock the phone using fingerprint? I read we can't disable it.

The Simple Gallery is indeed simple yet moderately customizable. But somehow the Nokia 8's camera app is unable to detect it as the default gallery app. I have been using QuickPic and it is functioning well. Only thing is, QuickPic is not so customizable. Even the main text colour is stucked with striking purple.
For music player, I've tried AIMP. Perhaps just not my taste in terms of UI but in terms of functionality, AIMP simply works. Currently i'm using BlackPlayer for music.

Mine has none of what you just said. Second, a device cannot do what you just said. There is the system to blame, if really.... : are the apps you installed, trustworthy? Can they cause problems? When it started to drain battery? Which app you installed the last? How did you set it to handle the battery? Are there apps that are allowed to work without battery optimisation? Which ones? And, and and and so on. An the last: have you format it after 8.0 update, and all otger that came after turning it on? It is know that systems in general cause problems when jumping to major version modification. They also cause app problems (apps that are not supported, or need to be updated and so on). Before conplaining about a device people, first check if you actually know what thatt device actually is, or can do, and what are your knowleges about it.
I am really disappointed by my new nokia -8 .
Serious problem are been faced daily , battery drains out quickly , phone hangs suddenly ,
mobile heats up . Basically it proved me wrong just showing a flash in the Pan , ultimately failing to perform up to the desired expectation .
