One thing most people miss out on the point of having a larger sensor is the ease of playing with prespective: 1 inch sensor size should be the absolute minimum for enthusiasts; other than that all objects will look flat without the "3D poppingness" which isn't only the job for the tonality from sensor and lenses.
On the bright side, this multi camera crazed phone doesn't produced super overly processed images like the p20.
Wish there's a phone camera with two 2/3" sensor with a wide and telephoto lenses since it makes a lot more sense than phones that came out in 2018 and now.
808 and CM1 are still kings of photos for phones

Really? Of all the phone you have in office you grabbed a P30 Pro and an iPhone X from 2017. How about iPhone XS, Pixel 3 and Galaxy S10?

If I didn't own a Nokia 9 myself, I would have thought that this phone was the worst thing that happened to gsm world in the last 2years. Since I do own one and do use one, I can just agree to disagree (to that very strongly) with almost all the points written here, by both the reviewer(s),as well as most of you guys out there who are just bashing and being plain disrespectful - it's just a phone and if you don't like it, don't buy it; refocus your energy on finding one you do want to make your own. The fingerprint scanner is Indeed a nightmare and the camera app can be a bit of a drama queen with all the processing it does,but for me personally it's totally worth it when the photo outcome is like the one (at least I) get daily. I have to say, I seriously don't know how the reviewer got the quality it did, but my samples look 10 times better. The plain jpgs look amazing. The quality of the post processed ones I don't even want to talk about. No phone out there comes even close... it's also mostly about the things you want. This is not a "point &shoot" phone. It doesn't come with over saturated Instagram ready modes. Its point is not to bring the moon to you as close as possible (the comparison with p30 Pros zoom features was in my opinion also highly unfair in the review since Huawei literally advertised the zoom as it's main highlight feature for the p30pro, so it didn't really get the point of that comparison whatsoever and if you do want to compare features, compare those that are similar,not those who make 2 phones look like worlds apart). Nokia 9 has the most honest representation of ones reality, the colors look exactly like the ones you see in front of you and there is simply something super charming to me about it's output all together. And before I'm called a fanboy - my last 3 phones before the n9 were a Samsung Galaxy, iPhone 5c and Huawei p10, the last one having the best black and white output I saw till date (at least before I got the n9). The p10 was also never really praised for it's photo quality and I think it was also because most of it's users didn't really know how to use it nor how to take full advantage of its potential. The p10 was also not a point to shoot phone, was stripped of ai but it gave photos that kicked ass and almost always looked waaaay better than the ones a Samsung, iPhone or even pixel could produce. I somehow feel the Nokia 9 is in the same category now, only 2 years later. I also love that it comes with a genuine black and white sensor(s), something you can't really see anymore but something that,at least for me,is very important. It really depends on the things you expect from your phone and its camera I would say. Either ways, for people who do want to buy this phone I would say - there are other reviews out there you might want to check out before passing final judgement. For me it's an amazing phone, extremely fast and snappy and with a camera I can tweak just the way I want and that makes it a winner in my book. Cheers!

A flexible camera as a main one and then the most enthusiastic several ones with specific purposes. And prefer phones with different purpose cameras as telephoto, wide angle, etc, that don't crash runining the momment of a perfect shot that you lose a second later.

Do you know why it was given number one spot on DXO mark?? yeah i know you will rush to say dxo mark is paid. But i would rather listen to experts who have atually tested the device in different scenarios and have given their opinion, and then do you know why p30 pro is praised by many youtube reviewers?? Its because of the versatility of the camera, meaning its superior in most areas be it lowlight, ultrawide, macro, potrait, and that insane zoom! No other smartphone can do that at the moment.

Anonymous, 07 Apr 2019nokia 9 has the best still image quality...I bet the raws from the p30 can give it a run for its money. And low light is far superior from p30.
12.4 stops of dynamic range is great for a phone.
But with 5 sensors and multiple shots it seems like not much. Not when phones with one 12mp sensor stacking like 3 images can get about 9 to 11 stops I think.
But that 9 looks good and is a monstrous step from the past decade. So 12 is still great and at least a start.
I agree a larger sensor to really live to the purview name would have been more desirable. But this is a good concept of they can continue optimizing it well.
Nokia made some mistakes with this phone, they were clearly struggling with the software which is still far from perfect. They should just went with one camera with huge sensor, so it would be great during all conditions and easier with a software. A lot of cameras maybe are marketable, but photos with auto mode are nothing special.

Micro LED is expected to be much more power efficient on bright and white colours compared to OLED while equal to it with blacks and contras while not having ghost's problems and being able to last much longer. While Sony had a competitive advantage with Trilimus displays for years it didn't do anything to cash it in today you can buy the better TV from TCL with better panel & only half the price. Trilimus™ is a coating top layer same as Quantum Dot™ or what ever you like to call it. While I like Sony for other stuff like AOSP and full referent API's implemented all in all last cuple generations of their phones aren't competitive and they should really gave up on tight task packing per minimum amount of core's scheduler optimisation as it's depreciated long ago...
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2019Phone of 2019 ! I love Nokialol i dont think so, not with those buggy software flaws.. sadly this phone is not worth its price...
More like the epic fail of 2019. The single good thing is the display and it has it sense as someone must be really blind to buy this phone. But the display will help him with his blindness. I pity the customers who buy it and have to waste time editing their photos to make them look decent. How many days lost each year? Good luck with your patience.
Guys, the cam grabs light from 5 sensors to turn into data information. Of course it will take much longer compared to a single 12MP camera.
I remember to read that when XZ2 Premium activates dual cam it takes a bit longer compared to when it uses just the RGB.
I doubt any update will solve this. It is not only a lot of data to process but post processing has to merge all them.
Make a test with your phones and compare all resolutions they have. Photos taken with the lowest will be much faster.
