HMD Global has a pretty interesting smartphone lineup for 2018. All of its mainstream and high-end offerings are part of Google’s Android One programme, which means you’re guaranteed to get regular security updates and major Android version updates for two years. This in itself is a big deal, considering how most Android smartphone manufacturers struggle to keep up with Google’s update cycle. Out of the new Android One Nokia smartphone family announced during MWC 2018, we’ve so far reviewed the Nokia 7 Plus (Review) and the new Nokia 6 (Review), and both have managed to impress us with their performance considering their respective price points.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Summary

The Nokia 8 Sirocco features a 5.5-inch Quad HD pOLED display with Gorilla Glass 5. Colours are vibrant but they can look a little too exaggerated at times. The body is made from stainless steel and the thanks to the glass back, there's support for Qi wireless charging. The phone uses a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Software is up to date too, as you get Android 8.1 Oreo and the most recent security patch. The main 12-megapixel sensor captures good details and the second telephoto lens lets you get closer to the scene. Battery life is also good and there's fast charging too.

    Proud owner of the phone since 23 Jan 2019. Purchased it from Reliance Digital Shillong. Got it online insured from iAssist.in online. The box has transparent back cover. Touch and performance is awesome. It is 6 GB Ram & 128 GB hard disk. This model is half the price of iPhone 7 having 128 GB hard disk.

  • Must buy!
    Achindra Bhatnagar (May 4, 2019) on Flipkart
    Amazing device. I pre-booked and as the date came close, a few reviews showed up criticising this device. I was nervous and counted my options. Then, "Nokia", the name I sticked with. When the box arrived, I was totally stumped. It was full of surprises. An awesome USB Type-C earphone with great bass. Not the usual Nokia earphone. There's no palm rejection, but phone cover is so well built, I didn't find a need for that. Camera is crisp. I haven't compared results with Pixel yet, but I think I am satisfied. Front Camera is 5 MP but delivers good picture. I mainly use it for calling, less for selfies. And the best use is in PIP mode. I wish, that mode comes to all video calling apps (Duo, Skype, WebEx). Battery is super cool. I am getting 28 hrs easily with streaming music through speakers for a few hours, few hours of screen time reading articles and watching a few videos, calling etc. But then I have not tried how much battery is trained by BT. Although I am on-off wifi zones but Wifi radio is been always on. Size is amazing. Pixel 2 XL was just too big to topple off my hands, but this things fits just too well. And screen is bright, sharp, wide. Curves are good. Yes, you do see some blue tint on the curves on white screen but I didn't mind it (may be you will). It creates a stunning scroll effect when things go down the corners and disappear. Speakers are loud and clear. No abnormal heating as some reviews noted. BTW, no one revealed, but this device is indeed a bit heavy. (Same as my stunning Lumia 930). 178 gm for phone and another 12 gm for case. That makes it 190 gm in hand. Since the phone is a bit wider compared to Pixel XL 2, the weight evenly distributes in my palm and I don't feel it. With Pixel 2, the same weight (180 gm) was creating fear as I was losing grip when I reach out with my thumb to check notification area. I must say, this is worth a buy! Its ~Pixel 2 with extra RAM :-)
