HMD Global announced the re-entry of the Nokia brand in the mobile market late last year, and the Nokia 6 became the first phone to be unveiled under the new arrangement. This was followed by the launch of the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3, with the focus very much on the entry-level segment. That changed in August when the Nokia 8 was unveiled at a special event in London. This device is the realisation of a long-held dream of many enthusiasts - a Nokia-branded Android smartphone with flagship-class specifications.

Nokia 8 Summary

The Nokia 8 is one of the first premium phones to come out of HMD Global's revival of the Nokia brand. It offers good build quality, a great display, excellent performance with stock Android, the promise of regular updates, first-class battery life, and good cameras with some neat tricks. On the flip-side, some might find the design boring, it isn’t fully waterproof like many competitors are, and the low-light camera performance could’ve been better. It packs the flagship Snapdragon 835 SoC but sets itself apart with near-stock Android. The front and rear cameras boast of Carl Zeiss optics. The 5.3-inch QHD IPS LCD screen has a resolution of 1440x2560 and colour reproduction is accurate. You also get 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 3090mAh battery but you will have to choose between a Nano-SIM and a microSD card for the second slot. The Nokia 8 is IP54-rated, which means it’s not waterproof, though you do get protection from water sprays.

  • Overall a great phone in such a price- Go for it!!
    Nikita (Mar 11, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    The phone is really a great one by Noika after so many days with such stunning features. I loved it camera specification cause i am a selfie lover ofcourse and a massive storage . What i didn't liked was the battery 3999mah that too non removable. overall a great phone in such a price. But if you are expecting on battery level then please think once again. Else apick. Thumbs up for Nokia 8. Note:- i haven't seen the phone yet i am only reviewing it as per specifications on this site so please consider it yourself before coming on any conclusions.

    Deepak Kumar Patra (Oct 20, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Nokia is one of the best mobile manufacturer so far we have used and we get the value for money for it's product. So, it is really exciting for it's relaunching of products.
