4 things that make the Nokia 8 unique


Announced by HMD Global earlier this month, the Nokia 8 is a high-end Android phone that'll try to take on some of this year's flagships once it hits shelves come September. Its weapons? The Nokia brand, excellent build quality, and a very attractive list of specs - comparable to what you're getting from other expensive flagship handsets of 2017.

Now, the Nokia 8 might not look too different from the mid-range Nokia 6 or Nokia 5 (both already available to buy), but the new aluminum-made smartphone is unique in several ways. Join us below to discover them, will you?

Everything listed makes this phone unique.

Ozo audio and zeiss optics? Meh, when it comes to multi-media the lg V series is king, when it comes to audio, htc is the king and when it comes to camera capabilities the galaxy note 8 is the king.

This phone hasn't been released yet. Until then we don't know how well it will perform compared to the ones you've listed. Each of those is definitely good in it's own right and I'm sure this new Nokia flagship will also be a contender. We'll find out when PA and others (including meanest) put it through its paces in September.

Just watched a review from Recombu. Aside from potentially poor scratch resistant quality of the body this looks like a really good device. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=842shzKnxuI

What's "meh" about Zeiss Optics and Ozo Audio? Have used the Nokia 8 before, or any high end handset with either of these two features to have any credibility to comment? I've been reading reviews (gsmarena) and watching YouTube videos from credible tech bloggers about the Nokia 8, and from what I've seen and read, it's certainly a contender that can compete with al of the smartphones that you've named.

Good find. Now for a proper camera review...

It isn't a phone that wants to be anything more than a well built slab with a good camera. What's wrong with that?

What's right with it? Give me an answer that doesn't make you look like a yes man account.

Says the inbred Apple troll yes man.

I wasn't even talking to you unless you are confessing once again to having aliases.

I don't give a good gottdam who you were talking to, faux account king. I responded, and there isn't a thing you can so about it.

Oh look, she's triggered just because I got her to admit to having another yes account. As for not being able to do a thing about it, we both know that you're just a keyboard warrior.

Lmao! No one believes that BS except you, and you only say to deflect from the fact that you have several faux troll accounts here. And we both know that YOU are the cowardly keyboard warrior here.

Nope. Just average with enormously large bezels. P. S. Don't mind the butthurt from a certain individual.

Don't talk about the iPhone like that, lol. Don't talk about yourself like that. It's self defeating.

Stop deflecting by bringing up the iphone. You know all about self defeating, alphageek.

Stop deflecting from you being a hypocrite. I know all about it from watching you defeat yourself, mxyzptlk.

Posts: 1972; Member since: May 19, 2017

You first, madame. You are the one who is defeated, alphageek. That would explain why you are handing off your beat down to your other alias, MDCHO.

After you, little girl. Lmao! You run away with your tail between your legs on EVERY article you and I go at it. Lol, now you're just projecting because more than one person calls you out on your trolling, as opposed to having multiple faux accounts, like the one you're using now, mxyzptlk.

35. Flash

Posts: 1972; Member since: May 19, 2017

No I don't. Lol, I don't live on PA like you do, alphageek. You are the one who admitted to having aliases in order to fight the good fight. You are just mad because someone exposed it.

39. meanestgenius

Posts: 22520; Member since: May 28, 2014

Lol, yes you do. This is your second home, mxyzflashmxy2starkmite. You are the one that admitted to creating yet another troll account and "still being here" to darkk after he pointed out that you are like arte8800 with the amount of troll accounts you have here. You're just mad that more than one person has exposed you concerning it.

By the way, thanks for admitting how hurt your feelings are because I ignored you on a BlackBerry article and let my dude MDCHO and a few others drag you around that comments section so bad that you ran away like the cowardly keyboard warrior that you are.

Aka, you used another one of your personalities, your aliases, to do what you can't do under your main account.

Posts: 22520; Member since: May 28, 2014

Aka you just can't seem to rap your peabrain around the idea that NO ONE likes you, and more than one person speaks out against your incessant trolling. You have have faux accounts accounts like batmite to freely worship Apple and troll users with, and it's evident that it's you, because you attack the same people that you attack with your Flash and mxyzptlk accounts.

Can't wait until this beast is released in the states so I can get my hands on one and put it through its paces. Day one purchase for me.

Dual sight is 100% gimmick. 1 big problem with Nokia, the dimensions is such a wide phone.

I agree especially with them sticking with the big bezels.
