Just received mine from B&H photo for the $599 special...which included a very nice Mophie charging brick. Will be setting it up over the next couple of days. Moving from my very liked Nokia 8 (copper).
I understand comments about not having a headphone jack and it requiring an adapter. However, I'd say that most of my headphones are Bluetooth nowadays, so in the case that I need to connect and use a wired headset, I know I can do it. In a phone like this, every mm of space matters. I'm sure Nokia weighed the pros and cons of taking up space with the headphone jack.
If only this had a headphone jack I'd buy it in a heartbeat! Why do the phone companies insist on removing useful features people like. I currently have a OnePlus 6 and the new ones have taken it off so its time to look at a new manufacture which is a pity cause the Oneplus6 was great
I would like to see RAW samples for download as well.
Can you upload for us?

As this phone stands out for its camera, please add some raw files for downloading. I'd like to get a feel for (shadow) detail, banding, room for post-processing. Low-light scenes are as interesting as high-contrast scenes. For banding, small sensor cameras often show problems with streetlights on exposures for surroundings at night.
Why no one is doing the complete review of the phone.
I dont a full review by none of the YouTube flagship mibile reviewer.

Photos are compress to load images quickly its not the original full resolution image which was captured from the phone. Just wait for the phone to release in public on your hands instead of speculating things on your own.
Picture #7 shows well, the camera is a pure marketing. 2 same modules and 3 same b/w modules, but very low dynamic range and very noisy. This is where it should theoretically improve in quality, but it's not.
wow the dynamic range though very good picture quality. this phone is for photographers where they can probably use all the features of the 5 sensors.
According to sample of low light photo, we see on the church tower is 16:34 o'clock, we can check how lights conditions outdoor are during this time. Sky on this photo (and photo) looks like during night, so we can suppose that IA make whole work, situation simillar to p20 pro, quality too
Well, photos look great at first glance, but some of them look like a work of Rembrandt, so smudgy without details (my P20 could tell). The sky one some pictures has the strange artefacts like lines. But I like the color balance. Quite good, but nowhere I expected it to be.
Year after year many good features are dissapearing from mobile phones. Mobile manufacturers silently delete convenient features. One recent example is omission of 3.5 headphone jack from phones.
Modern Apple, One plus phones are coming without 3.5mm audio jack. Thankfully Samsung is still providing the same.
Below are some of the good features which are not available in modern phones.
*1- Xenon Flash*
Xenon flash was once common in high end phones of Nokia and Samsung. It is the same flash which are using in the digital cameras. Nokia N8, N 82, 808 pure view etc were some examples.
*2- Dedicated Camera Button.*
Nokia N73, N95, Sony K750i etc had this feature. It was a very convenient feature which allow us to click photos with the help of a dedicated button. It also works as a camera ON button even though the phone is in locked mode.
*3- Camera Shutter*
Again many Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones had this feature. Nokia N73, N70 etc are some of them. It helps to protect the camera from dust, scratches and other damages.
*4- Analog TV*
How many of you remember those Chinese phones like Sigmatel, G Five etc with tiny antenna for watching television programs. If you are a cricket fan definitely you had this phone. Analog terrestrial tv channels are still available in India. We can watch DD1 and DD News without Internet.
*5- Qwerty Keypads*
Blackberry was the king in qwerty phones. After the introduction of android phones qwerty slowly disappeared. Samsung introduced some qwerty android phones but it was not successful. Slider qwerty keypads like the one in Nokia n97 are very convenient if you are a series user. Qwerty slider phones are coming back it seems.
*6- Woofer speakers*
Phones like LG GM200, Some Videocon and Lenovo phones etc had this feature.
Instead of simple paper speakers these phones used woofers for extra bass and sound quality.
*7- MW Radio on Phone*
Surprisingly only some Sony Ericsson phones had this feature. Sony R300, R306 were the phones had MW radio
*8- Wireless FM Radio*
I guess this feature is still available with some basic phones. There was a time Nokia and Samsung introduced Wireless FM phones with speakers and all.
*9- Visual Radio*
This feature was available in Nokia Symbian phones. It was an interactive feature.
*10- HDMI on phones*
Earlier Nokia use to provide this feature on their high end phones. It helps to connect mobile with TV.
*11- Play via Radio*
This was a crazy feature available in Nokia basic phones and Symbian Belle phones. This feature helps to play the phone songs via radio. It means we can listen the same song in many phones nearby.
*12- Laser Auto focus Cameras*
Nokia, LG Motorola etc used this feature. It means a red laser will point the object which we need to focus.
Most of the features mentioned above are related to Camera or Music. Introduction of YouTube and other video or music related technologies substituted these features. But phone with Xenon flash is way better than a phone with LED flash
