Well I'm critical because the camera is OK it would have been excellent a few years ago. However I guess it's right in saying that this is the camera you expect for this price. Nothing special, does the job, there's a lot better than it though, but most of the time you pay more. The selfie camera is excellent on the Nokia 8. Maybe they can improve the camera performance with software updates. I believe the camera sensor is the Sony IMX258 which is now a midrange sensor and isn't as good as the IMX398 in the Huawei P10. All three cameras on the Nokia 8 use the IMX258.

Anyway you'll find a fair few reviews where they say the dual camera setup is OK but behind the competition, and this review seems to love the phone, and doesn't like the Nokia camera software, which can of course be updated if 'Nokia' so choose.

Very good of him!

Yeah very tempted by this, it was on my short list of potential phones and I think I have doubts my phone from gearbest will actually arrive. For £100 it's low risk (if GB come through, it should have sell-on value at around that if not higher), for £150 it's a bit riskier. Decisions decisions!

Screen is nicer on the G6 - it seems to pop more and just feels like a better screen to me. Also phone is not much bigger given the smaller bezels. G6 doesn't feel any slower but the lack of bloat on the Nokia 8 and more up-to-date version of Android is a nice perk. Fingerprint scanner is much faster and more reliable on the G6. G6 seems to charge fast with more of my chargers. I haven't seen 'charging rapidly' at all on the Nokia 8, though I haven't opened the charger it came with. Nokia 8 doesn't have a glass back, so won't pick up loads of tiny scratches like the G6. The G6 feels *slightly* more premium to me though. The camera on the G6 is undoubtedly better - even when comparing with the Pixel camera on each. The Nokia 8 camera seems very slow, and also the wide angle camera on the G6 is more useful than the monochrome one on the Nokia 8 for me. Battery life on both is very good.

Smartphone innovation has hit a brick wall, yet prices continue to increase. 3 years ago smartphones and tablets were simply better value for money.Take the Smart Ultra 6, it's replacement (SU7) was worse in every way, and the SU7 replacement (V8) is basically an SU6 with a better camera and build quality, but with a massively inflated price (£160).The Moto G series is another which has risen in price and/or received downgrades (G4>G5). I will argue that resolution does not equal quality though. For example, the screen on the Nokia 5 is better than the Moto G5 in every way (brightness, colour, contrast, response, viewing angles) apart from the lower resolution.


True,but the screen on the SU6 was superb too, probably it's best feature, certainly better than he Nexus 5x I replaced it with. Guess it was way ahead of its time with very little profit margin hence it was never advertised much. I viewed the SU7 platinum as the true successor, cost twice as much though, greedy Vodafone.

Only had my Glossy Blue for a week but it's been perfectly fine.

How's everyone else getting on with their Nokia 8s, and has anyone else had any issues?

My phone (blue version) has been fine for the past month or so but has developed a screen fault (half the screen just freezes or pixelates). I bought it from the AffordableMobiles deal posted here and they have been useless ("all we can do is send it back to Nokia for repair, since it's more than 30 days old") and I'm not really sure about Nokia - they've asked me to send it away (prepaid to Hungary(!)) but when I asked how long it would take, all I've had is "Unfortunately we don't possess this information at the moment", whatever the heck that means.

I'll probably go along with it and see where it leaves me, but it's really poor customer service on both counts.

Has anyone else encountered any issues, and/or dealt with Nokia customer service?

Just ordered one for tomorrow. This deal is hotter that the Nokia 8 at £399. Two years from now you'll be glad you spent the extra £50 for 2GB of RAM and 64GB of storage!

Indeedy, I'm currently using a Huawei P10 Plus (dual sim) as my daily driver, and recently won a few prizes in a smartphone photo competition using my Honor 9; Huawei & Honor gear is fantastic value for money, and for the most part really well put together.

I still have a soft spot for Nokia/MS/"HMD-Nokia" gear having previously been a brand ambassador (from the N8 days through the WP/WM years up to and including the spectacularly awful MS 950xl), and was looking at picking up one of these until the Huawei Mate 10 Pro goes into full launch mode - dual-SIM would have been ideal as I don't want to carry round more than a couple of handsets at a time. Either way, it'll be all-change in a couple of months time!

I don't think this phone has OIS from the specs on Motorola UK. No doubt an error on the CPW specs listed above. Still seems to be a good deal though. I'm quite interested in this phone but the reviews seem to quite varied and there seems to be little info on the camera. I'm looking at this against the Nokia 8, a strange mix I know, but the IP rating and the smaller size is an advantage over the N8 as a non-heavy user.

Mid range specs for 300 seems expensive.

£300 for a mid range phone from Motorola? Errr, no thanks!

Just got this phone and really enjoying it, £300 is a steal for what you get, the processor may not suit if you play lots of intense 3D games but otherwise it certainly suit most! The IP rating is a must for my working conditions and finding Alexa to be helpful!

It might be a good price for this particular phone. However, is any phone actually worth paying out this much for? Spend half this and then use the rest on a beach or city break. Your feeling of satisfaction will be much higher.

CPW is irrelevant if it's a fault, the warranty isn't held with them. …CPW is irrelevant if it's a fault, the warranty isn't held with them. They'll send it off, go and read the Huawei UK warranty spiel, it's all RTB.On the contrary I've had a great experience with Samsung who replaced an S6 on the spot for me. No faffing around, gave them my proof of purchase and I walked out with a new phone.Your money, your choice. My money wouldn't be backing this horse for this money.


Huh, ok thanks. Whenever my friend have had issues with CPW bought phones, they've always taken them in store and got them sorted, but good to know that isn't always the case.

Personally I've only bought Google phones recently and never had any issues with their warranty - whether there was a fault they would send a replacement immediately and give me 14 days from receipt to return the faulty one.

Giver your experiences, I think if Samsung's software was in a better state, they may come off the blacklist of OEMs I'll never buy again.

Whenever I've had an issue with Samsung phones, they've had to keep it at least overnight and sometimes send it off without replacing.I understand the customer service side of iPhone and Apple, but that doesn't apply for Samsung. And buying from Carphone Warehouse does give you a store to walk into to get issues fixed, no?

People pay money for Samsung/Apple knowing they can walk in to a physical store, phone a UK number to speak to someone that will help them, fix an issue or advise them.That 'business stuff' costs money and it's rightly added to the device cost to cover the budgets. It doesn't mean Huawei and Co that don't have those overheads can command the same money, you get less, you should pay less.

I found the way it was written very rude and I admit i bit but I’ll avoid posting mobile deals as I don’t know much about what’s cheap etc..

I’m not bothered about voting cold it was how it was written and came across

How is it bad customer service from Nokia? What do you want them to do? Your phone is broken, they can't "magic it better" remotely, it'll need to be repaired at a service center.

How's everyone else getting on with their Nokia 8s, and has anyone else had any issues?

My phone (blue version) has been fine for the past month or so but has developed a screen fault (half the screen just freezes or pixelates). I bought it from the AffordableMobiles deal posted here and they have been useless ("all we can do is send it back to Nokia for repair, since it's more than 30 days old") and I'm not really sure about Nokia - they've asked me to send it away (prepaid to Hungary(!)) but when I asked how long it would take, all I've had is "Unfortunately we don't possess this information at the moment", whatever the heck that means.

I'll probably go along with it and see where it leaves me, but it's really poor customer service on both counts.

Has anyone else encountered any issues, and/or dealt with Nokia customer service?

Beware. Just fitted a glass protector but it goes past the curvature of the screen so leaves a large margin unadhered and looks ugly. This is despite the item description stating that it does not. Might try a film type that is designed to wrap round the screen.

I've been thinking about getting this phone ever since Argos had it at this price. Strange how it fluctuates in price so much. I suspected that all retailers had put the price up ready to reduce it on Black Friday so it's good to see it at this price again. The dilemma now is to wait to see if it gets any cheaper on Black Friday or take the plunge now. Topcashback have £10 cashback.

This or Redmi note 4?

Good phone OK price. Yoyos up and down this one, has been here before. Considering competition and Black Friday expect it to come down a bob or two.
