GSMArena

Packs quite the flagship punch

from GSMArena
The Nokia 8 is a revelation. HMD did the iconic brand justice by delivering on all promises and there's no doubt that Nokia still has it when it comes to imaging and audio. The Nokia 8 is a newcomer but it doesn't look or act like one - it doesn't overdo it, it's not out of its depth. No rush to make up for the lost time - the Nokia 8 is methodical and confident, patient and prepared... Full review

IT Pro

A blast from the past

from IT Pro
While the Nokia 8 is technically competent, there's little here to inspire or excite. For added extra features, the similarly priced Google Pixel represents a more attractive option... Full review
Expert Reviews

Nokia’s top-notch flagship is the comeback the firm needed

from Expert Reviews
Everything is all above board, but the burning question is whether there’s still room for Nokia in 2017. Before now, I’d have argued not, and especially so given the firm’s recent track record with middling handsets like the Nokia 3. But it looks like the Nokia 8 may just put the Finnish firm back on course – there’s every chance that this smartphone will see Nokia grabbing headlines for all the right reasons come September time...
