Prince, 29 Nov 2020Hi. There are so many negative comments about Sirocco. Mayb... moreits just attractive to look thats it but light leakage in front camera when look by tilting phone in full brighness in night ,ther is gap between front glass and display in bottom section above navigation pill that when you press harder the glass bends and makes tik tik sound trust me i have replaced 4 devices under warranty the sim tray shakes when you touch and when you shake, the rear camera rattles as it has ois but no! above all you will have hard time with buggiest software ex: android 10 almost 1 year old but still third party navigation support not fixed which google fixed it in 2019 dec update and the list goes on
licensed by nokia, mfg by foxconn, restricted software by google , warranty by flex, marketed by hmd i dont know who handles customer support but solution will always by factory reset so go for a brand which has r&d .hmd has nothing to offer they compile and provide a smartphone which is useles because it has nothing in its control

I somehow still find it attractive especially when u look at it side by side with IPhone SE 2020 (which has the same fram like IPhone 7/8). But I think getting a iPhone X would be better than getting a sirocco.

I have just received November security update patch here in Saudi Arabia.

I purchased Nokia 8 Sirocco in June 2019 for about INR 30,000.
In November 2020 i.e. after 17 months, the display gone flickering.
I took it to Nokia Authorised Service Center and I was informed that the replacement cost of glass is INR 21,000.
Too bad that it served only for 17 months.

I just received security update for October 2020 on my Nokia 8 sirocco here in Saudi Arabia.

Received October'20 Security update yesterday night, here in India.

Just switched over from Nova Launcher to Microsoft Launchers.
The main benefit is that the Screen Blackout OR Locking after Restart & Logging in is sorted out.
Also no need to buy any Premium Support , viz:- Tesla Unread, which is required for Nova Launcher.
There is one small issue with the Notification Count & Background Color.
The Count size is very small & the background color is Dark RED which is difficult to notice.

Just got my September-20 Security Update. Looks like the Screen Blackout problem on unlocking is resolved.

1) what is your justification...???
2) A 2-year old model is still performing great:-
a) Good Camera.
b) Good Memory.
c) Good Battery, you have to use it sensibly.
d) Compact with high resolution of 1440.
e) Water resistant.
g) Wireless Charging.

That dream did not last much for them and were mostly confined between 2017 & 2018. On it's first year their lineup had the quality but lacked in performance except for the flagship Nokia 8. In 2018, they rectified this performance issue for mid to higher end models and three models stood out. Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus & Nokia 6.1.
Nokia 8 Sirocco. Over 95% of its exterior body is vacuum moulded Corning Gorilla Glass 5. HMD Global wanted to attain thin 2 millimeter sides on this phone to celebrate their first Nokia flagship bearing "Sirocco" name.
For 8 Sirocco they choose stainless-steel which is 2.5 times stronger than 6000 series aluminium. This change for a stronger material was necessary for the load bearing frame to deliver the same level of structural integrity of say the Nokia 6.1. Nokia 8 Sirroco being ultra-compact do not have the same internal dimension or volume of 6.1's aluminium uni-body to attain the same level of structural strength. Hence the change in material.
This frame is also quite different from a uni-body in the sense that it's a 2 millimeter thick stainless-steel sheet which runs through the whole body of 8 Sirroco. As expected from Nokia, the stainless steel frame is carved out of a single block of steel, machined for hours into a solid, yet uniquely slim and compact shape. And in the end the stainless steel frame is given dual diamond-polished for improved grip and even diamond cuts on the edges to celebrate this unique design. Its curved glass finish envelops the stainless-steel frame, combines a curved edge-to-edge pOLED 2K 5.5-inch display with moulded body curves to create an compact profile.
The most unique aspect I love about of Nokia 8 Sirroco's design is the stainless steel frame runs through the whole body which does adds quite a bit of weight of 177 grams for its compact profile. To me it only signifies that this creates for an extremely robust internal design which quite amazingly can take in the middle, the weight of three grown men before it will break. No other dual glass sandwich design from any smartphone manufacturer can claim this level of inherent structural integrity on their phone.
Specification wise the phone is reasonably powerful with Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of LPPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage. Being a glass-back it allows wireless charging and a 18 watts Qualcomm QC4 wall charger is included in the box. Battery capacity is small by today's standard at just 3260 mAh but lasts for day. And Nokia 8 Sirocco is IP67 water resistant as well. My only gripes are no headphone jack & single SIM support.

It seems some recently downloaded app is the culprit. Try reviewing and deleting recent unwanted apps & see if it solves the issue. If still the problem persists, perform a factory reset after taking backup

I have it for one year. Performance generally is great really, and I'm not having any problems speaking of phone being fast. Battery is awesome by the way.
But after last 3 updates I got some problems I didn't have. First problem is with unlocking using finger print. Sometimes it is just not working, it recognize fingerprint but doesn't unlock, just block phone with black screen. Than I have to lock it and try again. Second problem I'm having is after last update, when I plug in my earphones, it recognize them, but for example if I listen to YouTube, song finish, than I have pause for like a minute, next song will play not on earphones but on phone speakers. Extremely irritating!
I see this more as software problem than Nokia hardware.
