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.
joy, 05 Jun 2018gone are the days wr they held a supreme place in camera iq now they are couple of places behi... morebecause this is not the real nokia.
hmd is just "another company" borrowing Nokia brand from microsoft.
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2018Samsung oled screens are poor too. Pentile matrix is poor compared to rgb. S9+ has only 8-... moreThen explain Samsung made AMOLEDs for Apple iPhone X? If Pentile and 8 bit is bad, how is it getting awards? I rather want to get award winning screens despite the niggles.
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!!!!
umeshk, 05 Jun 20188 sirocco is underwhelming.... no good camera no good speaker...You said that without experiencing the phone hands on. Come on, give a try on Nokia 8 sirocco and tell me how great or worst is it!!!!
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2018Damn, this is one ugly phone. Sure it's an ugly phone, but that doesn't mean it's bad cause their spec wise may be better than the beautiful phone with poor spec right. Eh, have you watch Cinderella???
Disappointed, 04 Jun 2018This review was a surprise. The phone is shockingly bad for a flagship, especially at that pri... moreWhat's your problem you all? This phone has the best design (stainless steel, no cheap aluminium), gorilla glass 5, octaCore processor antutu score surpasses the Galaxy Note 8, Ozo audio recording surround sound till 132db, fast 128gb internal memory, 6gb ram, fast charging, wireless charging, IP67,Android One with the latest updates, face unlock, fingerprint, etc. Everthing about it SCREAMS FLAGSHIP! And far cheaper than Samsung, Huawei or Apple!
[deleted post]Name of fairy tale is REALITY.
This is not Nokia. Just HMD Global + Foxconn.
Nokia rents name in exchange of money.
This device has old cpu, poor quality screen, bad audio system, camera as bad as OP5. No stabilization for 4K videos, nor even 1080p@60. Poor battery endurance.
Abstract: it has hardware of 2017 , it costs more than 2017 flagships, but it is worse than S8, XZP, V30, Pixel 2
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2018Damn, this is one ugly phone. Typical reaction after you see this phone, then look at yours.
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2018Damn, this is one ugly phone. Remember the days, 10 to 15 years ago or so, when you held a Nokia and it was the supreme device we all wanted? I'll never forget the 8800 when I had it. This stuff is garbage. Just another Android in the sea of mediocrity. Doesn't even look like they're trying.
Please, can we get better video samples?
There is no way we can tell how well was sound captured.
I picked myself LG V30 and shot a short clip.
Please consider capturing better samples, with sound, with voice :'(
gone are the days wr they held a supreme place in camera iq now they are couple of places behind to the chinese competitors not even comparable to samsungs, apple or lg. Even their lumias were superior.
Meh, I would prefer to have that Nokia 8800, the classic one.
Like this if you agree.
(PS I'd use it as a business side-phone, call me old fashioned. I wouldn't replace Android, I'd have a main phone that is very strong/un-fragile like the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active)
I really like the form factor of this phone (minus the curved screen): small bezels in a 16:9 phone. But I am disappointed about the battery life. Snapdragon 835 was not very efficient, but the software also doesn't seem very well optimized.
8 sirocco is underwhelming.... no good camera no good speaker...
