Scorching HOT over Amazon and CPW anyday with the 2 year guarantee
Having used warranty at JL for a phone, it wasn't a great experience. They fully refunded after they had the phone for 6 weeks, as they couldn't fix the head phone socket. Westfield's branch, Stratford London.

Well, one off instances do happen with every warranty. Microsoft has my controller for 4 weeks now and still no clue whats happening.

Atleast they refunded in 6 weeks. Microsoft doesnt even care.

I guess the lesson i have learnt is to have a backup and that way no need to chase anyone and just use the backup. No company is perfect. Neither is Amazon. Nor is Microsoft. Nor John Lewis.

But if you can find a high street store that offers better warranty and service than John Lewis, I would be really surprised. And you get 2 years warranty with one and 1 years with one is a deal breaker for me, just for the extra 1 year peace of mind if something fails after 12 months. As simple as that.

The phone comes with a two year manufacturer warranty. I'm not sure what John Lewis' procedures would be if it developed a fault but personally I'd rather trust Amazon.

You have 2 year guarantee from nokia anyway, no matter where You buy.
Does anyone know if this has HDMI out? I can find only one reference to it working on one message board so I'm not convinced it does

Sorry for your experience but people always post when they have problems and not when things are working fine. So again its an electrical device and some fail.

When i had a problem with my phones, i just took them to John Lewis and they got ut sorted in a couple of weeks so have always been good for me. No need to contact manufacturer, pack it, send it, track it and so on.

Just take it to the local store
is this dual sim variant ?

Pretty sure any Nokia 8 is dual SIM, it just takes up the micro SD slot

Totally wrong, we have consumer rights which cover up to 6 years which is in fact better than than the EU directive which the UK
didn't implement. The website you pointed to was dated 2010 so you might want to check your facts are up to date beofre posting misleading information

It's on the Android One program. So like the Pixel phones you get two years of OS updates as well as montly security updates.

Edit...

Apologies. I confused this phone with the 'Nokia 8 Sirocco' which is using Android One.

No HDMI out AFAIK as this is quite rare on Android anyway, and Nokia don't add things like DeX off their own back, since Nokias use pretty much stock Android - which doesn't even support Miracast.

If by RSAP you mean contact sharing via Bluetooth then the Nokia 8 asks if you want to share contacts with Bluetooth devices when you pair.

It seems that there has been some success using displaylink usb-c to hdmi but it's somewhat unreliable.

Yhh thanks for that clarification. I did a bit of googling and found out. But yhh they've partnered up for this year tho. So let's see how that goes. I'll probably stick with my Redmi Note 4 until the end of the year before spending a decent bit on an upgrade and I'm particularly interested to see how the Android P update goes for the upcoming/current generation of Nokias (Srirocco - something like that, 7 plus, 6 (2018)).
Whilst the Nokia 8 isn't an Android One device it'll be updated to Android P - This is quite significant as it's rare you see manufacturers committing to outright promises of more than one significant OS update. So there's life still left in this product if anyone's a bit hesitant about biting

You can verify this promise here at 41:00 where HMD confirm the current Nokia 3 - 8 devices will get the Android P update
