A quick review after using this phone for the last 11 months:
1. Excellent build and very sturdy, especially the copper version is an eye catching one.
2. Display has an excellent response time and resolution. It is very bright and also has a solid legibility in sunlight.
3. Dimensions are very user-friendly.
4. Vanilla Android is snappy and almost never glitches. Occasionally a soft reset is needed because of the wifi connection; not a hardware problem I think but it's a software problem because on Android 7 it never occurred to me.
5. Charging times are excellent.
6. Battery lasts until evening with moderate to heavy use (except 3d gaming!)
7. Dual sim management is excellent and I never had issues with it. Telephony is excellent and with true HD audio.
8. The hated camera is excellent in good light conditions and especially for the videos! In low light it's what it is but I think it's a software problem; hope HMD will find a solution soon.
9. Price is really ok!
10. Last but not the least is the very snappy response times even using multiple high requirement specs apps.
I've always been a Nokia fan and I sincerely accept it but I really don't understand people speaking and writing strange things about this phone!
It's a very nice bargain of price and what it really delivers; at least untill the end of 2019.

I bought this phone one month ago, It received Oreo update once I turned it on.

Worst phone ever experienced with the Nokia 8 , as the sim slot was not working reported to service center and no response from the service center till 20 days . worst service center in Secundrabad at S.p.Road .Although am Fan of nokia ,,,but now i hate this .Even the replacement is not beiing done through the escalation manager ....Worst of All the Phones .
This phone is not perfect, but first, look at the prices in europe: nokia 8 - 390 euros, samsung s8 - 600 euros, samsung s9+ - 960 euros, mate 10 pro 128gb - 700 euros, iphone x 64 gb - 1170 euros. So, you get almost top of the line hardware with less shiny features and not top camera, but you save shit ton of money. Nokia 8 is a high end phone with a very good value for its price, while all the other flagships are hugely overpriced and have very bad value for money, considering they also have all kinds of software/hardware bugs.
Hi...People give reviews which help absolutely nobody. They give their comments just with their personal experiences wherein most of the time, the problem entountered by them are caused by their own ignorance about how to use the phone.
I have bought this Nokia 8 & have been using phone for quite sometime. This is no doubt one of the best phone under this price tag. I wouldnt be calling anyting as CONS on this phone.
Before buying the phone, I did my proper homework to know what the phone offers. This phone delivers what it promises in terms of Design, Performance, Storage, Pure-Android experience, Battery, Fast-Charging last but not the least Camera (Dual camera)...
The only two things (in-significant) which I may point out is the lack of Wireless charging & Full waterproof which can be discarded as "no-must" feature.
All in all this is one of the best phone that I would recommend to anyone.

Great phone but camera is slow and its nothing special, volume and lock button are fragile.
How can DXOmark get such different findings than GSMarena?
OSasmatteroffact, 18 Dec 2017Lmao LG has never been on top not even in top 5 of world top smartphone manufacturer. But sams... moreLg G3 was the best smart phone in 2014. It was the first Quad HD display and the first smart phone recording in 4k.
OSasmatteroffact, 18 Dec 2017Lmao LG has never been on top not even in top 5 of world top smartphone manufacturer. But sams... moreWell' I couldn't agree more about LG. For iPhones, on the other hand, yes you're right about their tenured years (close enough with Nokia) but I guess, they just become popular since 2010's due to blackberry phone's ruled by then when their first apple phone released. We are talking about popularity hon, and on the other way around, talking about their downfall, I'm waiting dear, am not in a hurry. The higher you go, the harder you fall as they say. Let's see what come's next.
Nokia Lumia 1020 has still the best camera compared to this flagship, I guess.. :/
An Update of the Test with Android 8 would be interesting...also regarding the Camera focus issues...

But samsung has been on for like 3 years, on the other hand Apple has did a very splendid way to be on top for 10 years (close to what Nokia has achieved) now yet there's no sign of their downfall will come any soon.
