The new Nokia (really HMD Global licensing Nokia name) just released there first flagship phone, the Nokia 8. What do you think about it?
Personally I think it’s great to see Nokia making solid devices again. And I love the fact that they’re going with pure Vanilla Android instead of throwing there own crap over it like certain manufactures (cough cough…‘basically all of them’). Phones pretty expensive, but at least your getting really solid specs and a fairly nice design. Don’t know if it’s waterproof though…
Just looking at the photos, the first thing I thought was: Oh wow, what a nice device, with Android, and its not even that expensive. Just a shame that it still gives a fair bit of space to physical buttons. Personally, since I’ve been using the S8, everything else seems really clunky now, and I would have preferred a device that is even more futureproof in terms of design. Then again, great to see Nokia back in the game!
I personally think it is a strong device… but nothing really “big”. I loved the concepts of a Nokia 8 / 9 which looked like an evolved Lumia 930… that would have been so f*** awesome! but let’s see what the reviews will tell I’m curious of the camera performance
Didn’t look good to me. I’m interested in beautiful designs and unique specs and really cost efficient devices.
Also, it is only ip65 / splash proof I believe.
Samsung note 8 will be great for sure. I hope iPhone 8 sucks cause I’m bitter that mine gets terrible battery life and that they are redesigning it the year after I got it. OnePlus hasn’t made a compelling phone to me in a while. Most excited for pixel XL2
It’s huge… So zero interest from me… I’m done buying smartphones that I can’t grip properly and that end up on the floor. I’m done paying another $50 for a super thick case to protect them when that happens, but also make them even harder to grip.
Wonderful device - if I could just dump Google. Can’t trust that company with anything!
Seems like the people who formed HMD Global really know their hardware quality from the old Nokia’s, and how to make an all around, really good looking phone. It also probably helps with Foxconn doing the manufacturing, after they’ve had years of experience building iPhones.
If i nitpick more, the phone is just a little too small. Needs a 6-inch screen, but maybe that’s being saved for a future release. Also could use a better flash, and more megapixels in the camera, while dumping this whole “dual lens” thing.
But that’s me being extra picky.
There will be a Nokia 9 with a 21 MP Camera and also Zeiss Lenses. So that one might be able to make me change to Android once more. For me the Camera has to be at least equal to the one of my Lumia 950 to change to Android again.
