Battery capacity is way too low and it looks like a generic Chinese phone, oh wait it is....
It shouldn't be my business to come here to comment but I have been testing for 2 two days this device. And I can say:
1. Same rear camera/flash same as with Xperia XA. Night portraits are took a bit faster though it can reach same quality by different settings; XA is slower at that higher iso values but it's absolutely normal regarding 8's processor.
2. Battery backup as same as with Galaxy S6.
3. Built quality and materials are the same with Xiaomi's MI6.
For a reborned so called 'King' surely it's not enough...
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2017really? no mention of its closest competitor, the mi6? both even have similar form factor at 5... moreNokia wins in build quality, camera and availability (hopefully), Mi6 kills it in price-to-performance ratio.
Finally Nokia is Back with something fantastic after ages ... This Phone is looking so good with brilliant display and with awesome specifications ... Well done Nokia , We will try it soon

Nokia listened to users and high and rank of their employees this time around and not just some high level executives deciding everything abiut their phones. Going with almost stock android like they did is a winner, i believe. They just need to keep their promises on software updates.
The best words to describe this phone, as said on first page of review -"better that than nothing". Good but extremely slow camera (like always Nokia had), useless second sensor (fake bokeh? Soon it will go out of fashion and that's good), average work time (really somebody uses phone just in standby mode? Onscreen tine is not impressive at all). Boring design (take off Nokia branding and you'll get the same chinaphone as hundreds). Remember Lumia ..20 series? Ceramics and unique design. Cheap 520 looking better than this. Really. Great screen and selfie camera. And... And nothing else to say. For fans of dead brand - remove branding and you'll get good but not great overpriced chinaphone. Thanks, HMD, but you still just pretending to be flagship. Better do your excellent for it's price cheap phones.
To be honest camera quality review was not completely honest but with lots of defending points.. Yes I'm a die hard Nokia fan. Everything else seems to be great in Nokia8..
Want to see a comparison between iPhone 7 LG g6 htc u11 and Nokia 8..
Anytime I buy a phone I look at 3 things: Camera, Battery Life, and Display.
The Camera is above average, the battery life is excellent, and this display is also fantastic for an LCD. If this is priced right when it comes to the US ($500) this will probably be my next device. Glad to see a good first effort even though it wasn't a flawless one.

Hmm, its long I read a review in full, and just because this carries the NOKIA name.
In any case, first effort from them, good. But that doesn't mean you guys should be so defending of them, in some portion you guys absolutely were! Display is good, but you mentioned is better than iPhone 7's? How? Certainly not in colour accuracy! Camera? Good. But the phone costs pretty much a hefty amount, and still no competition with something like Pixel or U11, which were not included in the comparison! Low light shots were pretty bad to be honest, still much better than the garbage overpriced Sonys.
Now the really excellent things, the build quality and the really lovely and simple design. Love them. And that loudspeaker loudness, class leading it seems, and obviously the mentioned audio quality in video recordings.
I for one will surely keep an eye on the next Nokia releases. I really hope the OLD NOKIA quality is back and will continue to remain so in the future. But this phone at this price, sorry not possible to recommend over something like a Pixel, and if you are okay with skinned iterations then S7 or G6.
really? no mention of its closest competitor, the mi6? both even have similar form factor at 5.2-5.3"
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2017"High-end ZEISS lenses in front of all three sensors" Really? No, that's just marketing nonse... moreThat is how smartphone manufacturers earn from sales. If there is some kind of license from a very well known company, people would think it is a very good smartphone, same goes to other brands. Idk why HUAWEI would put Leica lens but still produces colours that are not as vibrant as other smartphone manufacturers. If someone asks me whether I should give this smartphone a smash or a pass, I would say smash for the camera and pass for the design. Mainly because the back design looks like NOKIA 5 and not as sleek and stealth as NOKIA 6's design. That smartphone looks more like a tank than this one
Everyone here has a problem with the camera but I'm not happy with the large bezel and bad screen to body ratio of the Nokia 8
Sounds good generally speaking; high-end performance, good build quality, good screen, doesn't play obsolesce game with the headphone jack, quite good battery life and a promise of rapid OS updates, OK camera. Not a master of anything particular but no major weaknesses either.
