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.

    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.

  • A really great phone but with worst ergonomics
    Jithakrishna Prakash (May 4, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    Nokia known for its sturdy phones still continue to produce sturdy phones that CAN SURVIVE MULTIPLE FALLS, at an affordable price. This one of those rare phones that give a 2K display at a price lower than 30k. Many reviewers say a 2K display is overkill for a relatively small phone but believe me the color density is far superior than the 1k display. The phone is awesome overall but there is a REALLY SERIOUS CON about this phone: The back has ABSOLUTELY ZERO GRIP and since the EDGES ARE CURVED INWARD it causes SEVERE STRAIN in your hand. So a case with a good grip is a MUST. Preferably a rubber-silicone transparent case that doesn't ruin the looks of the phone. AND while buying the case LOOK for cases that DONT COVER THE BUTTONS or have button covers with not much thickness. I'm saying this because since the edges are curved inward the buttons also are slightly inward so most cases will fail to connect with the buttons and you will have a hard time pressing the buttons which will cause another kind of hand pain. Another con is that SELFIES ARE MIRRORED and there's no way to change that other than manual editing. The option 'Save image as previewed' which is available in most phones is absent. And since the image processing of the Nokia Camera app SUCKS you need to download a Google Camera port which is available readily in internet. (Its called "GCMod5") To get fully satisfied with this phone you REALLY BADLY NEED A GRIPPY CASE. There are so many pros for this mobile though. But what I'm really impressed with is the Front Fingerprint Sensor. Unlike the back fingerprint sensor of many phones this will detect your finger even when there's sweat on your finger as it is incorporated onto the screen. It is so damn accurate. Bottomline: This phone is a no-brainer buy at this price range PROVIDED you buy a grippy case along with it or else you'll have to suffer till the next delivery date.
