Anonymous, 28 Aug 2017Sorry but HMD is a no name brand yet.... So Mr anonymous! How may we help you if HMD is unknown brand?! Do you have any idea if HMD is mentioned people just see Nokia?? HMD doesn't need to market itself, the Nokia name just carries it away. So the earlier you get over it that HMD is Nokia the better for you!!

Ryszard, 27 Aug 2017Hi! Regarding photo quality, are you able to check it after Google Photos app decrease its ... morefree google photo backup automatically decrease larger photo to 16mp max..i dont think it would reduce the photo that is already 16mp or below but i might be wrong. anyway, photo that stored in google photo backup is quite the same from original on my usage. i store 20mp photo (meizu mx4) yes the size it reduced but i dont see any quality problem.
Nokia will fail once more by not trailblazing the mobile industry like they did in the 90's and early 00's. He who forgets history are bound to repeat it
Nokia making the same mistake AGAIN??
Not innovating with boring phones? Learn from history jeez.

happy to hear that Nokia is back again.
my brother buyed this phone . he is not so satisfied with it . it has poor quality in Android. but rest feature are good
AnonD-50153, 27 Aug 2017I'd love to see a new phone with more than 16-hour web browsing battery endurance.Just stick a 10000-mAh power bank to the back of your phone. :-D
Although I use an 📱 7plus , but this device is awesome. It's much better than Samsung. I still have a note5 but with the recent Nougat update the UI has become extremely plain and boring. It feels slow at times.

The Galaxies age terribly based on software thanks to the heavy skin. These haters really don't know what they are talking about or lack phone history. I remember how great Nokia used to be and how crappy Samsung used to be and at times still is. The North remembers.
I just bought a Nokia Lumia 830...210$...I dont need the Nokia 8..I'm sure the 830 will take better photos and will have better phone performing capabilities then the Nokia 8.

They also know that their crappy Galaxies are not up to par with nokia 8 in terms of built quality. After few months their crappy Galaxies can't compete with nokia 8 performance wise. That's why they are trying to defend their brand and trying to discourage people from purchasing Nokia 8.
Thank you for the well done review, as always, gsmarena!
That being said, I do have some doubts about the Nokia 8 camera being as capable as the venerable N8 or 808. The pixel pitch is just too small and some reviews from across the web suggest that the Nokia 8 pictures apparently may not benefit from combining the two sensor outputs.
Regarding photo quality, are you able to check it after Google Photos app decrease its size, to backup (no limit option).
I think it would be interesting, as many people delete original and rely on Google service. At least I am doing so...
What do you think?

Haters gonna hate. Don't listen to them. This Nokia 8 probably won't sell like an iPhone or Galaxy. The days of the once mighty Nokia could be behind them. It's a new generation of people buying phones every year or few months. Just shrug it off because this caters to those same people who remembered their greatness and knows better from the late-1990's since The Matrix.
As long as the Nokia 8 still has the great build quality, loud external speaker, good camera, good battery life, and clear reception, it is a winner in my eyes. Forget the haters! Let them defend Apple, Samsung, Sony, or whoever. I rotate between 5 phones, 4 different brands and sizes. I don't care who wins or loses. I don't need to put one company down to raise another.
Quality is quality. Nokia has had it most of the time from my experience with their products. Their $50 phones were built tougher than the current $700+ flagships of today. If Nokia 8 is as built tough like my 3310, N82, Lumia 635 and 640, or the N8 and N9, it's a definite winner in my book.
Haters = insecure losers

I don't care if Nokia is really HMD, as long as the Nokia 8 still has impeccable Nokian build quality and clear reception, then Nokia 8 looks like a winner. I'm tired of cheaper build quality from the South Koreans and Chinese. And they are all made in China anyway.
Stop being a fanboy for any company. I've owned like 30+ phones from 14 different manufacturers dating back to an Audiovox. I've been on all major US carriers. None of them are flawless. I've owned Nintendo, Microsoft, Atari, Sega, and Sony for video games. I can point out every little mistake they did in the industry.
You won't really find perfection at anything. Everyone from Apple, Samsung, Sony, HTC, and so on have made mistakes. And even if you do find perfection, it will get surpassed because technology always evolves. Fanboys and haters are just wasting time bickering about the details when every company isn't perfect.
