Nokia 8 lives up to the standards of the 808 PureView and the N8? NO WAY
Nokia N8 had 2.5 times bigger sensor and xenon flash. It was so good it didn't have competition. 808 was even better, but had huge bump.
Nokia 8 has tiny sensor and relativly dim aperature.
Nokia 8 loses to Galaxy S8, LG G5, HTC U11 and a lot of chinaphones
I failed to see any mention about the improved internal cooling method? Would nice to see how it keeps phone cool while its on heavy use.

robogo, 26 Aug 2017Nokia wins in build quality, camera and availability (hopefully), Mi6 kills it in price-to-per... moreMi6 has better price, but only in China and some other asian countries.
In Eu and US, Nokia is much better option.
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
ZloiYuri, 26 Aug 2017The best words to describe this phone, as said on first page of review -"better that than noth... moreWhy such obsession with removing the branding? Remove the branding from iPhone, Oppo, and Vivo, they all look the same too. Believe it or not, Nokia is back!
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.
