Nokia 8 review: Connecting the dots

25 August 2017
This is it then. The long-awaited Finnish flagship that goes all in against the phones that rule today. The Finnish cameraphone returning to claim the prize that was once its birthright. Everybody bow and make way?

      I still own a Nokia 8 nowadays and I use it daily for a lot of calls, reading news and using some apps. Even for games it still handles pretty solid! Battery life haven't changed much since when it was new and I am just sad they did not kept this high standard for new phones. I really thought this would be Nokia come back big time!

        It was the real Nokia, the 8, 7 Plus, 6 and 5 was promising, so promising that i thought Nokia will come back. But with that X.1 phones, Nokia left its character again and went to Chinese way, that was a real mistake, that mistake made Nokia retain the title of "King of Mistakes"...

                Mado of Egypt, 28 Feb 2021Isn't there any way to update security patch for my No... moreno bro, but look on xda developers for new lineage os builds, maybe it has an newer security patch too.

                  Isn't there any way to update security patch for my Nokia 8 as HMD has stopped providing security patches for it? The last security patch my phone received was October 2020 and I am afraid my phone becomes vulnerable for hacking and malware

                              Have been using this phone for 2 years. One of the best phones for the price!!! Still no lags. Runs smoothly. Battery is really good. Nokia Camera software is ok but can be improved when it comes to photos. Video and sound is amazing. Speakers good. Really love using this 😊

                                Sad that Nokia can't make a phone as good as the Nokia 8 or 7 Plus anymore.

                                  I have it for almost 3 years. I love this phone. Super fast with Super quality. I don't know why people buy Apple iPhone or Samsung when you can get a Nokia with lower price.never hanged up although the memory was full to the end.
                                  I can't describe the feeling I have with this phone.
                                  I wish others can feel it. It's so pure and unique.

                                    The screen goes blank, no command functions including power. How do you restart?

                                      The battery is very good to me, never I needed to took the charger outside of my home one to 2 days with not problems. I hope Nokia will work to bring Android 10 update to this device. I am very happy the best call quality I know in one smartphone.
