Carol, 06 Jun 2018P.s. with that money, people can get nokia 6.1. Better screen. Timly security updates, better ... moreDear Carol, I believe that you are a person who tries to justify the price of 700 euros for a phone, the Nokia Scirocco, which my Moto X4 does all the same as that phone does, and spend that pile of money on a phone where My Moto X4 for 250 euros does all the same: What does it matter to me that the Snapdragon 835 runs 2 thousandths of a second more than the 636? Nothing, so do not try to justify the unjustifiable. With 64 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM (I remind you that there is a version of the Moto X4 with 6 GB of RAM), the operation of the Moto X4 is fantastic. Oh, and I remind you that the Google Camera app can be installed on my Moto X4, so the photos are of excellent quality. You can continue talking to me about what you want, but I just spent 250 euros and I have EVERYTHING I want, and if you have to spend 750 euros in this Nokia it shows me that, or you care little about money, or you are very unintelligent.
Yann, 05 Jun 2018Completely agree with you.

1. Curve screen adds gripp to your palm while holding to your phone.
2. Nokia is not ready to go for in display fingerprint scanner. At least their FPS position is good, not like you see on the XZ2 which is so low.
3. 8/10 people around the world won't care about camera hump including me. :)
4. Yes, Nokia 8 sirocco camera quality photo and video is not great, but..."AT LEAST THEY TRIED TO PUT IN THEIR EFFORT"!!!!
Conclusion: Nokia is really back, but needs to work on more improvement and satisfactory towards the customers/ buyers/ consumer.
Have been using this phone for 1 month now. Pretty happy with. It looks elegant probably the best looking phone right now. Premium build. Slightly heavy but it is so well balanced and is a delight to handle. N very compact.
The screen looks good straight on and that is how I use it 99.999% of times.
The battery is pretty decent. 5hrs sot. Used to get 2hrs on my previous phone Moto x style.
Performance is smooth. Don't know how much diff sd845 will make. Not much I guess
Low light photos could have been better
Headphones volume is a bit on the lower side. But quality of sound is good.
The inbuilt speakers are good. But Moto x style's were better.
The cell reception is very good. Even better than my previous Moto. Holds on to 3g and 4g better.
The best part is Android one with timely updates.
Overall I think it's a pretty good phone.
M actually shocked to see the bashing it's getting here 😉

Every sceen in all devices has somekind of problem. Hack, even the screen in the same model, some are more colorfull, some not, some are having some kind of tint, some are havin dull liight and soooo on. People have to be mad to just take this type of reviews in account. Anyway, what interests me is: can i see what i do? Not the others arround me? Is it good quality? Well, then is a good screen. If not, i'll take it back and try another one. Simple as that. As for the camera? Is not even close to that bad everybody exagerates here. Anyway, i do not care about what people say, cause i have more personality then the whole gsmarena put together. I also do not care about this device, cause i do not like it's back glass design and i already have nokia 8 which i just like better. But i really, really hate stupid comments and all ignorance that sorounds them.
This comment section is a mess people are just overreacting,
1. The phone is selling well below its initial launch price around 600 USD in most of the market.
2. Nokia has 7 plus for the best value segment, so sirocco was never meant to be value for money. It is for people who love aesthetics.
3. I don't really see the problem with the camera but it's not that worst, I am sure most of the people commenting against it won't be able to identify the difference in a photo comparison between pixel or 8 sirocco in a blind test.
4. SD835 or SD845 who cares, maybe you'll save few milliseconds here and there.

The display, lack of stereo speakers, no micro SD card slot, and an average camera don't exactly stack up to the galaxies and pixels and other phones that are around the sane price. This is a very hard phone to recommend.

You have to first work with this phone to instead of just pinpointing out of unprofessionals mouth. Snapdragon 835 is very capable and your moto has absolutly nothing against it. NOTHING.

Get a life people.

For 250 euros you can buy the Moto X4. 750 euros is very expensive this Nokia. The Moto X4 is the best in mid-range quality / price.

There is something seriously wrong with a headphone amplifier in this thing, even DAC implementation is clearly not that good as well.
Disappointed, 04 Jun 2018This review was a surprise. The phone is shockingly bad for a flagship, especially at that pri... moreCompletely agree with you.
1. Bad quality display with curved edges - uncomfortable to operate. Blind copy of Samsung. Bad that they didn't copy the quality is Samsung display too.
2. Bad positioning of FPS - back is most u comfortable place to operate. Under the screen or side mounted is much more comfortable.
3. Huge camera hump for such camera quality. I understand the hump on my daughter P20 Pro with that amazing low light photos, but not that on Sirocco.
4. SD835 for 650Euro in 2018 is not acceptable.
I can continue, but will be boring.
I still keep my N8, PureView 808, 1020 and 930 from sentimental point of view. They was quality products with amazing camera for their time. 930 still works on windows 10, but Microsoft abandon it as many other things.
Pity. NOKIA is not back. At least for now.

I wonder if the Nokia 8800 Sirocco was a good phone in the first place. Was it a good phone back then or is it like the Nokia 8 Sirocco?
I'll assume that the Nokia 8800 isn't really that good. It's average.
Gandalfdenvite, 05 Jun 2018Nokia 8 Sirocco have the worst sound quality, worst stereo crosstalk ever with headphones!So what?!!!! The spec sheet are bad, but if you try it for yourself, then that's a different chapter not story. Remember, if the spec are great in the paper doesn't mean that people will instantly buy it for God sake!!!!
