chipset: old, Camera: exaggerated useless, Look: ugly. Nokia will never bee the same like before.
Sunlight contrast ratio is staler cause Nokia invented the first brightest OLED even before Samsung knows about it aka clear black OLED.

I remember an article that I've read from the past, where a Japanese researcher actually found an alternative (and better I suppose) raw material and process in making an OLED panel. The article also compared the newly found substitute to what Samsung's Super AMOLED panels are made of and how are they made.
Don't get me wrong, 60Hz is fine for me already, but after having used an iPad Pro with 120Hz display, going back to normal 60Hz screens feels like a sluggish performance even when it's not.
Even the iPhone XS devices with 120Hz response rate feels very silky and feels much more natural to respond to my screen actions than a regular 60Hz display.
Nokia is the only phone so far that produces images virtually the same as DSLR. Both p30 and iPhone see look like good phone cameras only. That's the same as comparing two wheelbarrows to a Ford truck.
Anonymous, 06 Apr 20192600 is enough to go outside without any issues. Still, this high screen sunlight legibility means users will not even have any single problem seeing something on their displays even when the sun is directly hitting the phone screen.
I have a good vision and I could see my phone under direct sunlight with maximum brightness, but there are people that need better visibility on smartphone screens, and this Nokia 9's display will greatly help them.

Come on, Nokia. What a joke. I miss the good old Lumia 920/930/1020 time.
I own the phone for a four days now. If you expect your photos to be equally good or better as they were in Lumia 1020, forget it. You'll be disappointed.
Buying this phone after Lumia 1020, Mi 6, P20 Pro got me to conclusion that I'd be better for me (as a fan of photography) to buy a mirrorless. Hope this opinion helps the hesitators as I was one of you.
They have used the Pureview moniker. So this is a photography centered phone, or at least they sell it like that. After the fiasco and the bad results in low light, recording video, with a camera app that crash frequenly, and even in still photos not reaching the quality of other flagships. Its a big fail. Add the slow processing time, the need of an extra software for editing to get remarkable results, the lack of the removed useful features, like the audio jack and microSD card slot and becomes a disaster.
Knowing that it was not going to meet expectations, it should have been canceled or not use that nickname. However they have preferred to keep it to see if they cheat someone that buy it thinking it is magnificent simply by have the Pureview printed. As they have done with other obsolete and overpriced models just to use the Nokia brand.
And seems pathetic try now to sell it because, oh, at least it has a good display... wait, pay $650 or 600 euros only for a display that is not even the best? No thanks, i'm not blind. For that price you can find several phones overall better. It'll be a miracle if they sell all the limited units.
You don't find professional photographers buying Light cameras for a good reason. Sure that Xiaomi after try make it work, if can't acomplish it, they'll cancel the agreetment with Light before release a phone like this mediocre and unfinished one. The value of the brand and its prestige should be above release a bad and unfinished product. Although perhaps they can reach a good result. We will see.
Nokia 9 compared to Lumia 1020
Actually sad that 6 years old camera phone can even compete nowadays...

So they sold the device with a headset which couldn't be used without the adapter....
This phone is simply a waste: From the box to the inside: Buggy as usual, thanks to Android One and the no-optimization team , 5 cams but can't shoot any 4K videos, pictures take several seconds before be recorded...
Seriously, after the review who can claim still have the willing to buy this thing? Damned, for a high-range device it should be rated 2 stars: A real mid-range with these inconveniences could have the 4 stars rate, but here we're talking about a high-range device... But that's Nokia by HMD: Beautiful outside, stinking inside...

Why should we be sad for them? They don't give phones, they're selling them and we buy them, we give money to them.
So because they will have to work more, I should accept an outdated soc or buggy phone?
six_tymes, 06 Apr 2019Agreed, especially since this has the old 845 in it which came out in 2017. My wifes 2017 S8 ... moreSD 845 is 2018 SoC not 2017 and S8 has SD835 not 845 and the reason Pureview used 845 was because it was in development for a long time and switching to 855 would require alot of code rewritting

Andy, 06 Apr 2019I've lots of different review saying Nokia phones have buggy software. How are hmd managing to... moreSo true. And on top of it HMD can't update their One phones on time. As if they have 2 guys working for the software department.
> Since the Nokia 9 doesn't have an analog audio port, HMD is also proving a 3.5mm-to-USB-C adapter. We have to admit this is the first time a maker ships a smartphone, flagship at that, with a headset that will always require an adapter and we find this odd, if not lazy.
Nokia has shipped the device with earphones that can, with the adapter, fit into both USB-C and 3.5 mm jacks. Nokia has also provided a device that, with the adapter, can take both USB-C and 3.5 mm plugs.
Providing a USB-C set of earphones doesn't allow the user to use it with 3.5 mm devices. Having one set of earphones with an adapter to fit many devices makes more sense than having different earphones for each device we have. Inches of a single cord vs. feet of cords that can get tangled. Plus people generally only have teo ears, so it's not like you can make use of those extra earbuds you're lugging around.
It's not odd or lazy. It's logical and considerate.
