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.

Nokia 8 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Nokia Phone 8 I bought this a week ago - no serious issues with the phone with a tray for one sim card and a memory card, do miss the flashing light for notifications and phone calls. I am still waiting for the watch also - but did say within 14 days on the site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nokia phone, a real flagship I have had the phone for just over a week now. It's by far the nicest phone I've ever had (previously had an S6). I was torn between the Samsung S8, iPhone 7 and OnePlus5. I felt compelled to leave a review: Things I really like: Personally, I think it looks and feels amazing. Elegant yet understated, with 2.5D glass on the front and rounded edges. The feel of the phone in your hand is very similar to the iPhone 7.The screen itself is incredibly bright and ultra-HD resolution stands out.You know you're holding something expensive. It feels weighty, as well, which reminds you it's not a £200 phone (like the Nokia 6 for example). The fingerprint scanner on the front is well positioned for your right thumb, and accurate. So glad HMD used aluminium for the back cover, and not glass, it feels way better. The 64 GB version has 50GB of free storage. If you need more, it'll take a 256GB micro-SD card via the side slot. There's enough RAM on board for you not to worry about it (but not as much as the OnePlus 5). Battery lasts all day, easily, so far. Lightning quick, with latest pure Android 7.1.1 out of the box. Stands to receive the Android 8.0 before the end of the year too. Latest Snapdragon processor makes everything effortless. Whatever you're doing, games, HD films, recording, multiple apps. It handles everything I've thrown at it so far. Fast charging with a USB Type-C is great - it comfortably charges from 10% to 60% in just under 30 minutes. The camera set up is quirky - the dual camera ("bothie") feature is interesting, but not useful for me (think live streaming). The quality though, is outstanding. Nice portrait mode and live "bokeh" features. Shooting video in 4K looks stunning (even when cast on a 50' TV). Very impressed by the fact it keeps its cool well. After about an hour of HD streaming, gaming and such the phone was barely warmer than my hand. Things I'm not keen on: No notification light?! Bizzare. It has a "glance" function, which shows you key info while locked but still, weird of HMD not to include such a common feature. Not a deal breaker, but a surprise nonetheless. No waterproofing - this one isn't that much a surprise considering the price but the spec puts it into flagship territory and the competition are waterproofed. This is probably the biggest compromise here. All in all, I went for the Nokia and I'm glad I did. The aluminium unibody design, brand nostalgia and top spec internals made it relatively easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Phone I've had a Galaxy S8 and and LG G6 and now I've bought the Nokia 8. The Nokia easily matches them in terms of build quality. The Zeiss lens dual camera is brilliant, producing clear and vivid images both indoors and out. The clean version of Android 7.1.1 is perfect and the phone has been confirmed to be getting Android O. What I wasn't expecting was for the Nokia 8 to be so slim, it slides comfortably into a pocket and is a pleasure to hold. I can only recommend this, even compared to the Galaxy S8. Go for it and save yourself a few ££ at the same time, you won't be disappointed.
