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!

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

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

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.

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

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.
