All good for the Nokia 8, but why is the iPhone 7 plus compared here and not the iPhone 7. Especially when devices like the S8 is designed to take on the iPhone 7, and the S8 + is designed to take on the iPhone 7 plus. So right there Victor has the wrong comparison.

It's near stock not vanilla. Vanilla is like Nexus, Pixel etc.
