Which means I'm not using the phone in guest mode. If you think that rooting is only to flash some roms, then you should stick to guest mode.
You can even perform DOS on rooted phones. No, I'm not talking about the old-school os. :D
This means that if you buy the phone just to upload selfies of fb and play silly games, you definitely shouldn't try to root your phone. You're gonna cry like a baby after you bricked it.
Warning! Rooting requires a brain!

Nokia 8, no ! Little older HW, nut price is lower, in CZ now in action Samsung under 385Euro, Samsung S7.
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2017Nokia 8 or Xperia XZ??? nokia for sure
better chipset and modern. better battery life and screen, and finally raw android.
the only thing xperia has over the nokia is the waterproofing.

Nokia need to up their game to compete with the Samsungs.Overall it has good specs but I see no reason to choose this over the XZ Premium. In fact I'd choose the XZP without blinking.
Can you root Nokia phones? Do they offer bootloader unlocking on their official website like Sony does?
If i cannot root a phone I might as well buy a crapple and get it over with.
Nokia 8 is the best ever device i have used in my life and it's camera is amazing... Can anyone tell me when Nokia 8 is coming with 6 gb ram back its showing on gsm arena but not on nokia.com or any other e-shopping sites!!!!!!!
Sadiq ali, 31 Oct 2017I recommend to you one plus 5 . One plus 5 better than Nokia8 . Nokia's camera not better as c... moreActually Nokia offers better support.... Better camera with real optical image stabilisation... Will receive updates longer than the one plus... Has a more stock experience... Is 100 pounds cheaper in the UK... Supports ozo audio which is great for video and it even has a micro sd slot
The Nokia 8 is like the nexus device everyone wanted and even comes with a micro sd slot
The Nokia 8 is currently 400 pounds in the UK and is pretty the nexus device everyone always wanted
It runs plain android... It has micro sd slot... It has great audio recording... It has a pretty decent camera despite using the imx258 sensor... It is splash proof... It has 64gb on board storage... 4gb of ram and snapdragon 835
When you think Google are charging 700 pounds for the official pixel yet Nokia are offering this handset for nearly half price and promising early updates and stock android experience
It's even cheaper than the raved about one plus and comes with micro sd slot and a more stock experience
I think the Nokia 8 deserves more love at this price point when other phones don't offer quick updates and are charging twice the price for the same snapdragon 835 and 4gb ram combo
I hope to see Nokia unlock the bootloader on these phones to get the dev community on board as well
Keep going Nokia.... Keep going 👍👍
Would also like to say that this is the first android phone I have had where I don't immediately want to change something about the default on screen set up. Usually I spend hours fiddling with clock widgets, wallpaper and icons packs. Just going round in circles! Not so with the Nokia 8. Everything is just how I want it. No need for nova launcher. It gives me stock android with numeric unread badges which is really useful and something which irritated me about the Pixel. Also, there are a good selection of ringtones...something not mentioned in reviews. Samsung ringtones are irritating, Pixel ringtones are just trying to be whacky and cool which is fun to begin with but the novelty wears off you know?! Nokia offers more traditional ringtones which I like. In short the Nokia 8 feels very much like a phone AND a smartphone. It is so easy to use as both. That is a very rare thing in the smartphone world.
Moz, 08 Nov 2017hows camera result? Have been using Nokia 8 for about a week. The camera is very good. Have also used Pixel, S8, G6 and the Nokia produces a more natural looking picture whereas these others tend to over sharpen and oversaturate. However, focusing does take longer. Taking into consideration the price of the Nokia 8 (currently £400 here in UK) it is a really good value IMO.
Prabhat, 09 Nov 2017Is there any type of Heating problem, Whats about Battery.We definitely feel heat with heavy use only ...otherwise no heating but remember even heavy usage also it's get heat not overheated. So, no problem it's just a common issue..... Whereas camera it used CARL ZESS lenses. Many people's feel good experience with them is excellent, i too feel like that but in real Nokia 8 camera app is bad.. lot of problem between software and hardware need a serious optimisation.... Everyone get nokia with default android 7... But many where complained about camera but till today where in NOKIA 8 ANDROID BETA VERSION also no change in their camera...i don't know whether nokia 8 final Oreo Version comes out with camera changes or not.... So camera lovers wait for until their develop the camera properly because till today there is changes about the camera even though juho sarvikas chief product of nokia said working on camera... Let's wait how much their promise worth...
