Nokia 8 Sirocco

 

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: A bold move from a confident Nokia, the 8 Sirocco has a curved body and plenty of high-end features

Striking steel and glass design ; 128GB storage ; Produces great daylight photos

P-OLED screen spoils the curved front ; 16:9 screen already seems dated ; Oversaturated screen no good for photo previews ; Last-generation processor

The Nokia 8 Sirocco runs Android 8.0; it’s an Android One phone. This means there’s no custom interface and it relies primarily on Google apps rather than those of the manufacturer or another developer.

Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on review

 

With a promising camera and a beautiful design, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is hard to ignore.

Beautiful design ; Comfortable to hold ; Good specs ; Speedy camera ; Stock Android 8.0 Oreo

Edges are a tad too sharp ; Hard to press buttons ; No headphone jack

Nokia 8 Sirocco, 7 Plus, and 8110 4G hands-on review

 

Nokia is starting its second year as a new-look Android maker but it already has a big portfolio to build on and a solid market position to build from. More importantly it has a great relationship with Google which has enabled Nokia to supply its...

Nokia 8

 

Nokia 8: Price, release date. features and price – Is this the Nokia HMD flagship device we have been waiting for? Or will it end being too expensive?

Sharp display ; Excellent battery life ; Pure take on Android

Generic design ; Disappointing camera ; Tiny fingerprint sensor

Some people have been waiting an awful long time for Nokia to make an Android phone.

Nokia 8 hands-on review

 

If we used the Nokia 8's Bothie mode to shoot a reaction to the phone, it would be all smiles.

Fun, creative Bothie mode ; Monochrome camera mode is excellent ; Almost pure Android ; Very fast and smooth performance ; Polished copper model is a stunner

Design is very subtle ; If you don't like Bothies, you may find the phone too modest

Nokia 8 review: Connecting the dots

 

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?

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is too expensive for its own good

 

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is the best Nokia Android phone yet, but not exciting enough to justify the cost.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is fast, feels sturdy, has a long battery life and runs the sleek Android One operating system.

It lacks any standout features to justify its premium pricing. The Nokia 8 Sirocco's camera isn't reliable enough, and its design, while improved over the regular Nokia 8, feels stout and a little outdated.

While the Nokia 8 Sirocco does suffer from minor faults, its main issue is being outclassed by similarly-priced competitors.

The Nokia 8 is fine. And that’s its biggest problem

 

The Nokia 8 is fine. And that's its biggest problem.

The Nokia 8 has two rear cameras and is packed with power. Its screen is bright and sharp.

It lacks some cutting-edge features for a high-end phone in 2017, like waterproofing and a slim, standout design.

A decent all-rounder, the dual-camera Nokia 8 gets the job done, but it doesn’t come close to today’s true Android stars.

Hands on Nokia 8 review: Is this the Nokia flagship we've been waiting for?

 

Zeiss dual camera setup, OZO audio recording, and top-end specs makes this Nokia every inch a flagship

Polished Copper colourway ; Affordable ; Comfortable to hold

(Slightly) dated design ; Not sure how useful OZO audio is
