It is like a Huawei Mate 10 or another chinese high quality phone
Sometimes I feel everyone expects just too much from Nokia's camera, it is arguably on par or better than flagships on market. Watching camera comparison on youtube with other flagships it seems everyone is getting to critical.
Interesting that the sunlight visibility rating is usefully higher on the LCD Nokia 8 than the pOLED Scirocco - that almost never happens and does indicate this is a bit of an average performing panel type.
Just used photo tool.
Compared to OP6 and both are awful. Samples of XZ1 and S8 are better.
Low light shots of N8S have ISO500, OP6 uses 2000
The mobile industry is in such a sad state that choices for pocketable phones come down to sirocco and meizu 15...
pros: size, android one
cons: curved second rate display, no headphone jack, old soc, price
pros: better display, headphone jack
cons: doesn't support all eu lte bands, old android version with a skin and no guarantee of updates
Homer-Simpson, 04 Jun 2018Overpriced phone !!!! I've got a Moto X4 QUITEEEE cheaper than this and the features are am... moreMotox4? What are you... nine? You compare flagship guts with a barerly midranger? Go buy your self the moto roto and stop being usless on comment sections.
Please review the meizu 15... I think that would be the perfect competitor to this.
Overpriced phone !!!!
I've got a Moto X4 QUITEEEE cheaper than this and the features are amazing and someone of these features are better.
You can see some (small amount of) noise, but stills/videos are sharper than s9/p20p in comparison, bright/low light.
Auto settings and colors are not ideal but good enough if someone prefer sharper shots.
In my opinion you guys have one thing wrong around prices, it would seem that in many territories this phone is not being marketed / sold as a top tier 2018 competitor, in my country (South Africa) I can get a Nokia 8 Sirocco for 40% less per month on contract than a Galaxy S9, and about 20% less per month on contract than P20 Pro!
Original Sirocco was a class act. This one is just another slab of glass and metal.
I own this phone and largely agree with the review. Especially the blue display can be annoying. But to compare the 8 Sirocco to a Galaxy S9 is nonsense; I paid £495 in the UK and the cheapest S9 128Gb I can find is around £680 (both simlock free). I guess nostalgia is the biggest selling point for all current Nokia phones but they're doing great just coming back from the dead.
The 8 Sirocco might be a fail, but I still have great expectations from the Finnish Brand. You have had enough recovery time, so don't disappoint us Nokia, the next flagship better be a killer phone.
This review was a surprise. The phone is shockingly bad for a flagship, especially at that price (which, in the country where I live, is currently 650 EUR!!!). I was hoping for it to be pretty good, if not fantastic. I'm no expert, nor a tech guru, just a regular consumer.
The screen, being the most important part of a contemporary smartphone, should be close to flawless for that money. I am very disappointed. Shame, the phone looks stunning, and is very compact too. It was refreshing to have more options in the "flagship segment". I had a couple of cool Nokia flagships back in the day, when Nokia was on top of the world. I loved them, even before the whole smartphone craze.
Shame, I liked it's design and specs, and was mulling whether or not to buy it. I don't buy phones often (...every 4 years on average), and for that reason I always buy flagships. Using this for something like 4 years would be agonizing. Literally nothing on this phone is impressive. 650 EUR !!! One can find better stuff for half the money!!!
