SO much total rubbish is being written about the 8 by folks with Â“expectationsÂ” of Nokia based on previous products. My 8 excels in most respects - especially considering the price point - and is likely to improve in others as the updates roll out. Avery nice piece of kit!

PC's should be faster but still not fast enough when their is a weak connection. Do you have a home router? Do you have a home modem? Or is your router with modem integrated? Reset the router if yes. see if anything changes. I am not talking about on/off. But actual resetting, delete configuration/rewrite configuration. Reset the modem if it is separated (modems in general do not need any configuration they will connect with the ISP even after reset). Their should be a small reset button hidden in a small hole around the device. Last but not least: What connection do you have? DSL or cable? Or something weaker. What is the speed you pay for? Or you use wi-fi hot spots working on LTE? So, yes, as the colleges that posted before me. Their are a lot of reasons as of why internet might be slow.
Hi there, can you tell me about Nokia as android devices plz and if we can compare it to huawie devices??

1. How near are you to the router/modem/source
2. How many other users are connected to the same source
3. Are there any other wireless device(s) that use the same frequency as your source
4. The content that you are trying to access
I think there are more factors to consider. I'll leave it to the experts to advise.

Indeed I disabled the Google Photos app as I don't like to have my photos "available" to Google via online.
I understood your suggestion to sign out my Gmail account from Google Photos in order to disconnect it from my Gmail. But even this, I don't like the fact user cannot customize the UI of Google Photos. It is too plain and boring.
My temporary solution is to use a different camera app called Open Camera. It somehow allows me to view recently taken photos using Simple Gallery.
Nevertheless, I look forward too for the coming of Lumia Camera app.
Thank you and have a nice day.
Rohnny, 27 Mar 2018Can we change screen resolution to FULL HD from 2K? (like we can do in Samsung S8)Tgeir are some interesting thingss in developer menu, but i have found nothing about screen resoulution, so i think it is a samsung ui implementation that works with the gpu more. That is might also be why samsung phones stutter and lag after a small amount of usage. Their i.terface is just to deep implemented into tge system, and well, thus makeing it heavier, eating mire ram.

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!

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.
Carol, 26 Mar 2018Sorry. Aimp for music and simple gallery for photos and videos. And FX from nextapp inc. Best ... moreThank you for your suggestions, Carol.
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.
