They should have gone with OLED instead in order the phones battery life to be better. Sadly S8 and Note 8 took the lead despite 1440p AMOLED. But the Nokia 8 is a different story. 1440p LCD=brightest screen of all time 701nits together with always on display!!!!!!!

The camera in low light also beat all phones especially audio!!!! So this is indeed the affordable, beast performer and indestructible phone of 2017. Some how you never feel or try the Nokia 8 in your hand.
Thank you GSMarena for the review, you cleared lot of doubts and review came out real quick.
As for the phone looking forward for launch in my county.
For people who always have something to grumble about Nokia. Well no one is forcing you to buy! If you like get it or get lost. Simple! Because people who loves the Nokia brand will always stick to it. Peace!🙏

Nokia 8 is good but not great. In short summary - Nokia 8 won't bring back Nokia leading as king.
Beside the processor, everything is still one step behind current flagship release this year. If this Nokia 8 is releasing on 2016 or 2015 then different story.
For now, it just a ok phone but cannot compete with recent flagship.

Egash Josh, 26 Aug 2017Really??!! Have you even gone through the review of Nokia 8?! Any person in the right senses w... moreLOL right. Awesome 4 hours of OST, probably.
Why do people keep paying tons of money for crap like that?
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2017I agree with you.. Nokia 6 produced better photos with its 16MP sensor.. Goes to show that not... moreIn order for that to happen, they either revive symbian or use the futuristic snapdragon 900/860/866/870/888/879 to make a 41mp camera. Right now SD 835 only has limited up to 30mp.
I don't get one thing: how can you praise this phone for "excellent" camera when its camera is inferior to the S8 and G6? On low-light photos you can clearly see lack of detail.
I'm starting to realize the cheap build quality of the LG G series whether they used glass or flimsy plastic with metallic skin dating back to the Optimus G. My LG G5 took a minor fall inside its holster case and it got dent instantly on top of the phone. My G3 Beat got a minor crack on top as well. My V20 had no protection and gets dragged onto tile and ZERO flaws. Military-graded materials. G5 is a plastic toy compared to it.
Made me realize the only good manufacturers that offers durability comes from the cell phone pioneers - Motorola or Nokia. Moto is now owned by Lenovo and Nokia is more HMD but they are still who they were before. Ability to offer phones with the clearest reception and durable phones with lower prices.
Stick to Motorola and Nokia. The rest are catered to cheapskates and hipsters trying to look cool for strangers. I don't trust the Essential Phone's camera, so I will stick to the Nokia 8. Once I sell my G5 and S7 edge, my next phone will be either a Nokia or Pixel for sure.
So,good old Nokia is back.As I can see,they've built a proper phone after years,but that price-over 700$ cannot be competitive.New models will come and if HMD drops the price below 500$ maybe they'll take some market share in 'flagship' territory..
Couple months ago I bought Xiaomi Mi6,Oneplus5 was also considered,even ZTE Axon7.Paid 440$,my Mi6 runs like a dream and I cannot justify paying almost 300$ more for Nokia 8.And that amazing looking new Sharp Aquos S3 will probably be good 200$ cheaper then 8,but availability will be a problem.So,tough competition for Nokia,but it's nice to see another (old) player taking some share off Sams,Apple...
Plenty of doubts in this review.
Why is autofocus not tested on another copy of the phone? Why there is no test for different color spaces and color accuracy on the display?
The Nokia OS is bloat free and pretty close to stock but One Plus also has that advantage.
Stinger430, 26 Aug 2017Calm down dude. I won't buy the phone, ok. I promise. Just don't have a stroke. Seems like a lot of these people are headed to stroke city :'( .

"HMD got everything right in the camera department. The image quality is great, the specs are as relevant as they can get." Directly from review.
So the camera seems to be really good. Also other camera review have been positive. Less artificial sharpening is the key in most reviews I have seen. And that is the one reason why the picture is better in this than for example Samsung 8.
It is now based on what you want to have. Samsung 8 has higher screen to body ratio. Nokia 8 seems to be more durable. And so on. Good phone. Too expensive for me, but so Are other flagship phones including Onepluss 5. Nefinitely better than Onepluss, but Also a 50Â€ more expensive so tight competition in there. 200 euros cheaper than Samsung 8... so not so tight competition in there. V30 from LG is still unknown for the price, same as pixel2. But if I have to ques They both Are more expensive. So the Nokia 9 is the phone to put against those models.
In this price gategory we have Onepluss 5 that is a Little bit cheaper as well as Honor 9. Huaway P10 is more expensive, but not by much. So good competition in here!
nice job nokia , i will look into ifa but most likely this will be my next phone
