Nokia 8 vs Apple iPhone 7 Plus vs Galaxy S8 vs OnePlus and the rest: size comparison


The Nokia 8 is out and it is a beautifully designed flagship phone that will compete with the very best out there.

But there is something interesting and slightly atypical about the Nokia 8: it features a 5.3-inch display, not quite as large as the other 5.5-inch ones out there, but not small either.

The space savings that a smaller display offers can make a difference for those who prefer a more compact phone, but keep in mind that the Nokia 8 does not follow the latest bezel-less, full-screen design trend and has a traditional, 16:9 aspect ratio screen.

So... how does the Nokia 8 actual physical size compare to its rivals? Let's take a look!

I wish the Nokia 8 were a little bigger. 5.5 inches, like the Nokia 6, or even 5.7 inches would have been sweet for me. Still getting the Nokia 8, though.

Nokia make a phone like 3310 size with android for viber, messanger etc and you are in a good way.

Way too big. Nokia phones were once ergonomic. This has to come with finger extension accessory in the box.

For a 5.3 inch phone? Seriously? You must have small hands, because even though I'm definitely getting the Nokia 8, I find it a little too small.

The Essential Phone is intriguing me more and more.

I wish a great WP phone would come along (with WP drifting more toward the flexibility WM had). I'd snap that up.

The simple design looks like most chinese mid-high end phones or the galaxy S2.
