Sonyuser85, 04 Feb 2018Contrast or what?! N8 was weaker than any SE at that time on daylight. Just for its flash? Oh ... moreGetting desperate? City lights vs nature and no lights? After downloading and adjusting the gamma, I'd say both photos are equally good, however the N8 one is 16 MP while the Sony one was downscaled to less than 1 megapixel so you can't judge it by any standards. If I took a photo with a 70 megapixel potato and downscaled it to 1 MP it would be just as good.
Apparently you can't tell the difference between contrast and dynamic range?
I said "even without flash" but your conspiracy theory mind only registers the things it wants.
Anyway, very few people wanted to buy SE phones. I liked my K800 but every time I took it in my hand the cheap plastic would squeak like it was wrapped in a plastic bag. Mobile Review said it was the same when the phone was new. My sis had a SE "Live With Walkman" - same thing, squeak squeak. I tried a few new ones in the shop - squeakety squeak. Now they make their flagships from metal and glass, but it's too late. And their cameras are behind - or, more precisely, their image processing. All you have are placebo posts saying "But Sony is good too because I say so". And you accuse the others of doing what you're doing just because you don't know photography but want to look smart. ;-)

Yeah, we all do not like it, but from 7 to 8 their are some pretty major changings. As i first bought the device it went through 5 updates. After that, it was on oreo with the last security patch. It went well for like 3,4 days then it started the sharade. Apps won't cone up, even after reinstalling and al sorts of stupid problems. It is my first android that i actually use as a daily driver and i said. So, nothing changed in the android world, a crappy system is a crappy system after all. Anyhow, i formated, cause i needed to. After that, never had any problems anymore, not one from many discribed here (besides slow camera focus in low light) now i am at the fourth week. I am not saying android is greater then before, cause for me, is still a very fragmented and moronic system. And after so many updates and workarounds is still no where neer windows mobile, when it cones to quallity of working (making me wander, why people like this system). But well, the problems stopped, is a start.

At this point, Nokia can't fo much, is an Android after all. Probably that is why tgey avoid it with so much passion. But well, maybe oreo has something to say about stable performence.

The thing is I don't expect anything on that front, Nokia has always been built like a Mercedes; it's usually tough and reliable but wont give you the latest and greatest trends.
Ive been a windows/nokia fan for as long as it lasted for that reason; no matter how cheap or old your WP was, ti would never hang in a call or slow down to be unusable like it routinely happens with cheap android phones or old iphones,.. hope they stick to the formula now.
From xda-decelopers Nokia 8 forum:
It's happening to me too after Oreo update
After disable glance option from display, the problem disappeared until now.
It has been communicating with the support section of the Nokia (By support App) and reporting the problem
They promised to solve the problem in an update, but they needed more than one communication of the problem

The reviewer is rather an amator. Most of his comments and complains you would expect from kids, or people that do not have to much idea about devices, let's say...technology in general. Blames a device for things that generally have nothing to do with Nokia, but more with the unstable 8.0 system. throws words he does not understand and has not one idea how to compare, thus sounding more like a child who likes a trendy toy and does not want to try others, so he finds no real motive to claim his toy is better but cry's about how other toys are not in trend anymore. But what i always say, a spoiled kid cannot be satisfied in anyway, tomorrow he will find another trendy toy for you to buy. At the end of the review, the amator sound is still their, actually it never goes away. From battery to screen to whatever... is making peoples eyes hurt from so much lack of profesionalism. After 4 weaks of using this device, the only good pointed out by this kid, is the slow focusing in the dark. And that's about it. The rest is a mix of “i have no idea what i am talking about“ (i like 18:9 amoled screens better) and "i do not know what device i just reviewd" (i like glass back, uh is cool).
what a lame long term review :-( A long term review should talk about stuff that you cannot see in a handset when released, things like updates, how the device has held up over time, some images of the old handset as it is now, antenna performance, improvements provided in updates to vendor apps, like camera etc.. how many times it has been dropped etc.. etc...
I don't see any of it in this review.
I have been using this handset since it's release in my country, I can easily say it is one of the best handset I have used. it has never failed me. not a single call drop inspite of medium signal strength, battery life is amazing. It has always given me a single day's battery life whatever may be the usage. it never gets hot. I have got the security updates on time. yes camera performance could be better but I get splendid macro shots. one of the best I have seen in an Android since a long time, I like the size of this device inspite of the big bezels. bluish tint is not a big problem compared to many of the Amoleds out there.
Which handset out there can give a 7 hours screen on time after 6 months of regular updates and usage. I had a one plus 5 before this, I would anyday keep this handset over the oneplus 5
