The inexpensive Nokia 9 PureView is even cheaper with this deal

The inexpensive Nokia 9 PureView is even cheaper with this deal
The Nokia 9 PureView was announced earlier this year as the world’s first penta-camera smartphone. It was supposed to produce some amazing photos, and indeed it does, but largely failed to meet expectations.

Despite this, the product does still offer some pretty great hardware at a low price. And thanks to this latest Black Friday deal, the Nokia 9 PureView is now ridiculously cheap in the UK. Specifically, an incredible 38% (£205) has been shaved off the phone’s usual £549 price tag, making it cheaper than many mid-range smartphones. 

In terms of actual specs, Nokia’s 2019 flagship is equipped with a large 6-inch OLED display which skips the controversial notch and punch-hole trends. It’s paired with 128GB of internal storage, 6GB of RAM, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 which powered most high-end phones in 2018. 

Like every other Nokia phone, it ships with Google’s vanilla version of Android 9 Pie straight out of the box. Thanks to the brand’s dedication to software support, though, an update to Android 10 will be available by the end of the year. You can also expect to receive an upgrade to Android 11 once available. 

On a few final notes, the Nokia 9 PureView also includes a hit-or-miss in-screen fingerprint scanner, support for 18W fast charging and 10W fast wireless charging, and support for HDR10 content.

A good deal for an underrated smartphone that indeed does take amazing photos, as mentioned in the article. This is in part due to the sheer amount of information captured in RAW (more than any other smartphone to date), and what you can do with the photos afterwards using Adobe Lightroom (which you are prompted to download upon set up). You can also use Adobe Photoshop, etc. Depth sensing on the Nokia 9 Pureview is unmatched. Performance is fast and fluid, and on par with or greater than other SD845 toting smartphones. Build quality is amazing, and the screen is a pleasure to view. The built in memory of 128 gigs has no expansion, but coupled with Googles cloud storage, there is more than adequate space, especially for photos. Cons: The crappy in-screen fingerprint sensor, the battery should have been bigger, and switching between camera modes and photo processing time are slow. The latter is due to the images first being handled by the co-processor before being handed off to SD845. Overall, it’s an underrated smartphone that bodes well for the future of smartphone photography. It is admittedly a niche device, made for photography enthusiasts, and it hits the mark for those it’s geared towards. The best and most powerful Nokia branded smartphone to date (using factual metrics when comparing this to other Nokia branded smartphones).

I also need to add that the Nokia 9 Pureview comes with free, unlimited high quality photo storage. This is something that Google dropped the ball with on its latest iterations of flagship Pixels. HMD has also been rated the best when it comes to Android updates (full OS and security updates), which is something that many Android OEM’s are lacking in. (HMD should hire me as a spokesman for them lmao!)

"HMD should hire me as a spokesman for them lmao!)" *eye roll* You mean you weren't on their payroll after all this time of trying so hard to sell the Pureview despite the obvious shortcomings? For the record, the Pureview isn't the only phone that comes with free, unlimited high quality photo storage and it certainly isn't the only one that gets fast software updates.

LMAO LMAO This is coming from the guy that has been h****g for Google for free trying to downplay and deflect from the plethora of issues Pixels have faced since their OG release. For the record, never once did I say that the N9PV is the only phone to come with free, unlimited photo storage or that it's the only phone that gets fast updates. However, Google sure didn't supply unlimited photo storage for its camera centric Pixel 4 series smartphones like it's done for its past Pixels, whikx is a major blunder on Google's part. They take stuff away and still charge the exorbitant price. Secondly, HMD has been rated the FASTEST Android OEM when it comes to updating its fleet of smartphones. You don't have to like that fact, but you have to learn to love it. Woooooooooooo!!

So define the "plethora of issues" that you encountered then. You always claim that yet you can never seem to provide any detailed information about the issues that "you" encountered. You may not have directly said it, but you nevertheless threw it out there as if you were trying to imply it. As for "taking stuff away" while charging "exorbitant" prices, a lot of OEMs are guilty of this. What's your point? And before you say it, no I am not excusing Google for not having it on the Pixel 4 phones. A few weeks to, months isn't fast when Google literally makes updates available on the first Monday of every month for people who don't want to wait for the OTA rollout. You be factually correct had you said "outside of Google."

The plethora of issues are defined by the myriad of reports, articles and complaints experienced by Pixel owners and by tech sites like this one. It’s hypocritical for you to ask me of what issues I’ve experienced when you yourself have yet to provide any issues you’ve experienced with the Nokia 9 Pureview or even Huawei’s current smartphones, since you own none of them. I own a Pixel 4 XL and have owned a Pixel 3A XL, so I can speak on actual experiences I’ve had. I’ve never said, inferred or implied anything of the such. You’re changing the fact to suit your false narrative....again. My point is exactly what I said it was: Google is removing features/options from its flagship Pixels like finger print sensors and expandable storage all while charging exorbitant prices. Google CANNOT compete price wise wire the other OEM’s that have done this like Apple (FPS) and Huawei and Samsung (expandable storage). Googles Pixels are not as good as their flagships to compete on that level. You’re making excuses for Google removing things, as usual. What good is Google releasing their updates first of they routinely break functionality? And HMD updates how many smartphones compared to Google? That’s why they are considered better at the updates. I’m factually correct about HMD being the fastest and best Android OEM to update their “FLEET” of smartphones. Google doesn’t have a fleet of smartphones.

This is a good deal for an otherwise mediocre device, not going to sugar coat it. The Pureview had potential but I think Nokia dropped the ball with it. It doesn't even take photos that are that much better than anything else available out there. I feel like the 7.1 and it's predecessor are the better devices. FPS, micro sd card slot, and a headphone jack are available on both devices.

So you've used a N9PV to know how good or bad it is? What's your experience with it? Can you tell us? And yes, it not only takes better photos than many smartphones out here today, what you can do with the sheer amount of information it captures is amazing, and more than any other smartphone. They haven't dropped the ball with this and it isn't near as mediocre as the flagship Pixels have been. Even YOU know how bad those are, and Nokia branded smartphones have less bugs and issues than Pixels have.

I have. Tested one out at Best Buy months ago. Wasn't impressed. Wasn't for me. I said this a while back when the phone was first announced. You are the only one here who tries so hard to sell the Pureview. It's a mediocre device. Multiple people have chimed in with their experience with the phone and most of it was pretty lukewarm. Btw Nokia phones are just as prone to issues, even more so than the "plethora of issues" plaguing the Pixel phones. Don't believe me, do a Google search for Nokia charging port.

I find that hard to believe, especially since you never even provide proof of ownership when asked, like I have. And “testing one out” for a day does not trump ownership for weeks/months. You are the only one here who tries so hard to deflect from and deny the plethora of issues that Pixel smartphones have been facing since the original Pixel launched. Pixels are mediocre at best. Multiple users have chimed in about how disappointed they are with Googles Pixels and even reviewers now are have chimed in with how disappointed they are with the current Pixel flagships, as well as having chimed in about how frustrating the issues have been with Pixels. NO Android OEM’s smartphones are as prone to issues as Googles Pixel line. Some believe me? A simple Google search will prove me right: Bluetooth issues, random shutdowns, camera crashes...just Google it.
