I hope the camera software is not in its final form. It's mediocre for a flagship.
Not bad for their first flagship grade smartphone in a while. And they finally ditched that garbage WP OS.
HMD X Nokia is just starting make a flagship phone so it may has much bad side. Its make a sense? Hmm
Quick grab any phone that come with SD 836, it will have superb battery life.... Just keep going...
John0087, 26 Aug 2017hi guys, what's the best smartphones for audiophiles? even if they were last year's flagship .... moreLG G6 has a "Quad Dac" feature. You can learn more at LG V20 and LG G6 audio review on YouTube. I dont know how good is but many peoples say V20 and G6 has great audio.
Way too small for even consider as my next phone, no thanks. Otherwise it seems to be okay and finally runs Android instead of that mobile Windows.
This or the Essential Phone for me. For camera and lower price, Nokia 8. For futuristic design with strong build materials, Essential. People need to check Dave Lee's review on the Essential Phone on YouTube. Looks like a winner. I would take either Nokia (HMD) or Andy Ruben's phone over the overpriced Note8 and iPhone 8.
This is what I call, a pure flagship phone. I was extremely impressed about the Nokia 8 audio, performance, display and durability!!!!!!!!!!!
hi guys, what's the best smartphones for audiophiles? even if they were last year's flagship .I really need an answer because I'll upgrade soon. I have the lg g2 bought it 2 years ago and the sound quality through headphone jack has degraded
In gsmarena's studio setup the Nokia 6 performs much better in low light than the Nokia 8
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2017Where is the MOTO Z2? why you guys keep on excluding that monster phone? are you afraid how mo... moreNope, moto z2 it's actually irrelevant, everybody knows it. Your are probably the only one that doesn't;). But yeah, i would prefer for Nokia to be put against sony motorola and alcatel, instead of xiaomi oneplus crapple or samesung. But well, those oldies but goldies are all left behind...
"It's a magic number for Nokia and the Android edition lives up to the standards of the 808 PureView[...]. In short, HMD got everything right in the camera department."
Is this a joke? No full manual mode, no raw (the review does not answer the question whether 3rd party apps support raw), sensor is 4.6times smaller than the Nokia 808, image processing is so bad (and also extremely slow) that there is no difference between dual camera or single camera and the autofocus seems to be awful.
Their dual camera algorithm seems to be embarrassing. When they are not able to write a good algorithm for the dual camera, it does not make sense.
Envision, 25 Aug 2017Did you even read/understand what I mean or just trolling around ? BTW on lowlight test sce... moreIt's okay you win! So what's your point? No one has forced you to buy Nokia 8, you can get the G6 which you think is better for you. As for many of us we are eager to get this beast onto our hands with all that lovely camera, performance,quality and good battery! PEACE!!
Tough luck haters and trolls. Turns out the Nokia 8 is an actual flagship. A worthy contender! I can't wait to get mine.
Egash Josh, 25 Aug 2017Lemme just laugh! Ha..haDid you even read/understand what I mean or just trolling around ?
BTW on lowlight test scene N8 has lower ISO then G6 - same IMX258 sensor! - but the result is just poor compared to G6.
looked again at the "Dollar" note of the test scene - Nokia worse than competition, but why ISO 160 was chosen ? - G6 and S8 at 50/64 !
Goodlight test scene should be better re-shoot with lowest ISO to compare apples with apples, maybe it will look a lot better then ...
