Design and display

Built to last

The Nokia 8 is crafted from a single piece of precision-crafted aluminium, which wraps around the sides of the phone from the rear. It’s also super-slim at just 7.9mm - looking and feeling great. 

See more detail in everything

The large Quad HD display with 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass 5 not only looks great, but it’s really strong too. It measures 5.3-inches from corner to corner, and delivers a really high quality picture. 


Two lenses for better photos

The rear camera is made up of two 13MP lenses, giving you loads of creative options. You can use both lenses at the same time with live bokeh effect, blurring the background for a sharp professional look. Or, you can use them independently for detailed monotone shots.   

The bothie

Nokia’s branded its Dual-Sight mode ‘bothie’, which lets you use the 13MP front-facing lens at the same time as the rear 13MP camera. This lets you put yourself in the frame, at the same time as taking photos of your mates. You can also broadcast live to Facebook with this mode – ideal if you want to capture your own real-time reactions.  

Under the hood

Super-quick charging

The Nokia 8 comes with the latest USB technology, USB Type-C. The symmetrical power port lets you inject charge quicker than ever before, meaning you’ll be able to go from flat to full in around an hour with the 3,090mAh cell. 

Keeping things moving

To make sure you’re never slowed down when using the Nokia 8, it comes equipt with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. There’s also a generous 4GB RAM, helping you skip between lots of different apps without any lag time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Nokia 8 I did my research on this phone and the reviews are harsh! I was looking for something with the same standard as the iPhone without the big expense. I also love the new camera boothie mode. The Nokia 8 is a big phone to hold but I don't mind it now. So I'm one month in and took me a while to set things up as I'm not use to android phones so still learning. For me I can browse the web, listen to music, check my emails, and there are some cool apps voice recorders,note app handy for college, It does have a different way to swipe to answer phone calls but you soon get the hang of it. A great phone I love it, ok I've had a few setting issues but all sorted now just took a bit of time. New phone a new learning experience. It doesn't over heat which is amazing. Great battery life! I think Carphone warehouse should be doing more to punt this phone it's fab!! Screen is mega bright but you can turn it down in a swipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice but very buggy The Nokia 8 is a great looking and feeling phone but it is riddled with bugs and Nokia's support couldn't help. The camera takes great pictures even in the dark, the bothie mode works well especially when combined with the surround sound. Had to look up online on how to use the portrait mode. The phone is quick but often does get laggy even doing simple things like opening the message app. Touch screen and fingerprint scanner are a bit hit and miss, not always picking my finger. The NFC is poor, I don't use Android pay but it struggles when I am tapping on devices to pair them. No notification LED, doesn't normally bother me but I find that the screen doesn't always wake when I have a notification. I hear the alert tone but it doesn't display anything on the screen, when in silent I have missed the odd message coming in because of this. I'm on Giff Gaff and I can't set the voicemail number, it is defaulting to O2's voicemail number and when I try to change it I get an error. Both Nokia or GiffGaff can't resolve this. The voicemail does work correctly with an EE SIM installed. The sound quality through the head phone jack is good when used with a decent pair of head/earphones - it is a little quiet though. The enclosed headphones are junk. No nightmode, blinds me in the dark mornings when I am getting up. My previous BQ phone had a nightmode where it limited the brightness and altered the colours for certain times - thought this was a standard Android feature but seems to be missing. Had to enable the System UI Tuner to get a battery percentage in the status bar - it displays it in the battery icon and you can't read it very well. All of my previous Android phones could display the percentage by the icon. They are very small niggles but they all add up to a frustrating user experience, I am very disappointed with my Nokia 8 even more so now the price has dropped by £100.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality phone.Great service from Carphone W. My experience: Bought this for £500, used it for a week, it was keep freezing up (got to the bottom of the issue, solution by Nokia= don't use an SD card (high quality brand)), 4 weeks later speaker crackling so bad can't understand the caller, send it for repair to Nokia will take upto 1 month to get it back, no compensation offered by Nokia.
