Anonymous, 07 Apr 2019So you are comparing the Nokia 9 with old phones by several years/generations that doesn't hav... moreI think you should compare price level too. Many flagship models costs over 1000€s (at my local phonestore). So they should be much better, but most of them are not. Nokia 9 is 599€ camera here. So is Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and Huawei P30. iPhone Xs (with 128MB) is 1500€, Huawei P30 Pro (128MB) is 849€, so why compare to them? I don’t have opinion about iPhone or P30 Pro cameras, because I have kot teosten them, but Nokia 9 has marvellous camera. I don’t belive that any other 599€ phone has so good camera. Or cameras I should say. But it’s only belief. My newest phonecamera experience is from 2015.
So, I search my price level first, then I compare phones within that pricelevel. I came to conclusion that Nokia 9 is the best solution. I want to take good photos. For snappies I might use my old phone... if necessary.
.alpha, 07 Apr 2019Really? Of all the phone you have in office you grabbed a P30 Pro and an iPhone X from 2017. H... moreiPhone Xs costs 900€s more than Nokia 9 (in my local phone store), so IPhone should be way better in every way I think... but it is not.
Hamidi, 12 Apr 2019Joker of the decade, a prof photographer use phone to capture image??? Everyone can have a pro... moreNot so long time ago, everybody said that every pro photographer uses film cameras, never they use, or will use digital camera. End of story!
Hmm... what about now?
Maybe you are right just now, but who knows what will hapen in the future?
Meanwhile you can have pro quality photos without carrying your SLR camera with you... still, I have to say: Nokia 9 is not an action camera. Better with portraits and landscapes etc.
Raik, 12 Apr 2019Other phones give you a RAW output too plus better photos without being forced to edit them so... moreThis is not for amateurs. And it is about the quality of RAW images, not just that you can get them. If you want it easy, don’t buy it.
Walter C. Dornez, 24 Apr 2019It also seems a pack of gum can unlock it. False news. You should not believe everything you see in the internet. Internet is full of disinformation.
Walter C. Dornez, 14 May 2019Yep. Nokia has work to do. Is the Nokia 8 sirocco now a better deal over Nokia 9? Pls let me know.
Walter C. Dornez, 14 May 2019Yep. Nokia has work to do. Why speakers? This phone is about photos. Especially RAW photos. With sound I use external speaker(s) or headphones. As I have always done with phones. I have never heard good sound quality from any phone.
Boeing 747-400, 30 Apr 2019Yep, but not only the fingerprint scanner, but also the speaker that sounds rubbish ( Even Nok... moreWho uses phone to listening without headphones or external speaker(s)? I don’t. So I don’t mind the quality of internal speakers.
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2019Even with the raw, doesn't mean they get the same quality raw image in different phone. Defin... moreTrue! Nokia 9 raw pictures include much more information than other phones raw pictures! That is the point of this phone. The bad part is that you really have to use that raw mode to get those better than other phones pictures. It is not snap a phone and publish it phone... it is take your raw picture. Use the all possible data that those multible cameras offer and tinker the picture in the Lightroom and then publish it. You can get better pictures with this phone than with any other phone in the market, but you have to work for it! The automatic is utterly ”bad” at this moment. But the raw image that you get from this phone offer so much data that it allows you to make incredible good pictures. Not a phone to all Mr and MS Smiths. This is for pro photo enthusiast!
Walter C. Dornez, 14 May 2019Exactly. They have the bezels, just place good speakers. Boom, now you got a device like a Pix... moreAre you talking about the Pixel 3a, Pixel 2 or the original pixel because three phones have excellent stereo speaker quality with deep bass!!!!
Long before using the Nokia 9, i owned HTC M8 that has front facing stereo speaker. That phone i used from 2014 till 2018 ( Because my M8 suffered from liquid damage)
Boeing 747-400, 14 May 2019Definetly. I don't see why HMD don't put stereo speakers on most of their model. The last ster... moreExactly. They have the bezels, just place good speakers. Boom, now you got a device like a Pixel but cheaper
Walter C. Dornez, 30 Apr 2019Then a phone with stereo speakers should be in considerationDefinetly. I don't see why HMD don't put stereo speakers on most of their model. The last stereo speaker Nokia android phone are the Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 6 (2017).
carol, 03 May 2019i see nothing wrong with the sound, as i never ever heard quality sound from any of the smartp... moreThere is really a problem, but don't get me wrong, like seroiusly for legit. the Nokia 9 loudspeaker for its loudness is very good (71dB). Its just that the highs and lows aren't stable or doesn't produce much as compared to the Nokia 8 ( absolute great clarity, but decent bass punch)
In spite of people reviewing the speaker on Nokia 9 being absolute rubbish, thats why it made me think that Nokia 9 speaker is rubbish even though i own!!!!
i took the Nokia 9 with me on my USA trip and i would like to share the pictures with you so you can judge on you own if you like it or not.
I bought Nokia 9 Pureview few days ago as a second hand deal 340€. I must say that in that price rangeyou can't get any better device. It feels so much upgraded compared to my former Nokia 8.
+ Display sunlight visibility and overall quality exellent
+ Form factor with little bit bezel enables seamless handling when rotating device etc.
+ Feel light but durable built with quality materials
+ Very good stills with over the great dynamic range, good detail and colors
+ IP67 rating, no need to worry if taking a phone out when raining
+ Fingerprint reader in front, works flawless but you need to learn away of capasitive reader. You just need to touch it by using flat area of finger tip and not worry of exact position like putting your finger rather horizontal position which feels natural because more central position of reader.
+ Bluetooth just works which cannot say all devices like Huawei stuff
+ Android One, no bloatware, no vendor skin splashed over, long support, prompt updates
- Video quality mediocore, no stabilization with 4K footage
- Photo processing takes 5..10s if using depthfield, otherwise < 5s.
Boeing 747-400, 30 Apr 2019Yep, but not only the fingerprint scanner, but also the speaker that sounds rubbish ( Even Nok... morei see nothing wrong with the sound, as i never ever heard quality sound from any of the smartphones ever released. This complain, is plain worthless. And i have this device and the fingerprint does not unlock with gum or whatever, that's another made up lie.
Walter C. Dornez, 27 Apr 2019Hopefully. They're gonna need all the effort to truly rise back upYep, but not only the fingerprint scanner, but also the speaker that sounds rubbish ( Even Nokia 8110 4G sounds better). That was the real reason why iam concerned woth my Nokia 9 as i often watch on Netflix and Youtube.
