It's not Nokia though, it's HMD using the Nokia name.... Nokia are dead.




HMD is almost entirely consisted of ex-Nokia employees laid off by Microsoft. It's most definitely Nokia.

Nokia shot themselves in the foot with that price. £300 phone at most.
Isn't even Nokia. Some other company just bought the name and trying to cash in whatever reputation they have left.

It's not "some other company", it's Foxconn’s FIH Mobile.
And foxconn is the contract manufacturer for almost everything you are using, mobiles, computers, laptops and TVs.
So I think you are in safe hand.

Think about Dopod before HTC.
In delivery details it says phone box seal may be broken to do the quality check. No need to contact for this reason.
Does this mean that phones may be second hand or almost new or like new or nearly new (all these terms are being used now days)

I was thinking that, but thought maybe I'm a bit out of touch with the deals lately. Just seems way too expensive to me, especially for a Nokia
Any particular reason why people think this is too expensive? Specs are up there with most flagships and the reviews are positive. Certainly isn't a mid-range phone so why should it be mid-range price?

No, you are buying a brand new phone.
The review I've read of it says it does nothing better than the oneplus 5 which is a bit less than it, and is a lot worse than the galaxy phones that are priced at a bit more. If you're desperate for a Nokia phone then maybe, but otherwise why would you buy this?

The price you pay is for spec plus brand value. In this case the brand value is in negative for most people. I sold an iPhone 6 for 300 the other day after 2.5 years. This phone will have no value after 2.5 years as things stand today.
Has it got the Snake game?
4gb ram? I'm sure I had initially read somewhere one of the colours was going to have 6gb ram.... Hmmm....
Have been waiting for this for ages but not sure if it's worth it now I have a op3 already. Been excited by Nokia return and flagship but something just niggling saying is this good enough for the price.
Lots of reviews talk about the bezels being much bigger than other flagships nowadays

Who cares? Did you panic when you found out Tim Cook doesn't actually build every iPhone himself? I was bitterly disappointed when I saw the Google Android figure doesn't actually live inside my phone
At least the OS is Android and not Windows Mobile. The one thing Android lacks (in my opinion) is very well made hardware. Some of the Nokia Windows phones were absolutely spot on with their hardware so hopefully this will be good hardware and on a good OS.
The price seems good to me. £700 for a 24-month EE contract phone with flagship specs and excellent build quality. It's not like they are selling it for £700 SIM Free.
Looks like S8, cold from me.

What the hell does Nokia's "company vision" have to do with the spec and performance of this phone??

What does nostalgia have to do with anything? That complaint is only valid with the new 3310.

Who buys a phone to support a company's vision? I'm pretty sure every phone company's vision is to make money.
Looks good to me, still have 6 months to go on current contract, or I'd be very tempted. Heated!
Camera's no good for low light shots and for some reason it's significantly uglier than the Nokia 6, which was a budget phone.

If they made this phone a touch smaller, gave it a better camera and the 6's looks I'd be all over it. T'is a bit pricey though.

Microsoft bought the Nokia phone business and the rights to use the Nokia name, HMD assumed that business after Microsoft dumped it. HMD have an agreement with Nokia to use their patents and technologies and pay royalties to Nokia for them. HMD is led by former Nokia management and is staffed by many former Nokia staff. Their HQ is across the road from Nokia HQ. So, with so much of Nokia culture invested in it, they have a genuine claim to the Nokia name on the phones.

I would be interested if they did something innovative and not made just another Android phone.

The website of HMD Global if anyone is interested >

hmdglobal.com

They might just be a one trick Pony. However the Nokia brand had a solid reputation. If you look back at some of the absolutely crazy phone designs they had 10-15 years ago, they were innovative or possibly just seeing what type of almost unusable design they could force on the public, the Nokia 7600 for one. There will be kids alive today using smartphones who don't know about or care about Nokia's heritage. HMD Global don't have a lot to play with, just a name really, unless they have a really solid team and are willing to lose money before they gain money.

Some of the Nokia Windows phones were absolutely spot on with their hardware so hopefully this will be good hardware and on a good OS.


Android hardware has come on leaps and bounds. It absolutely does have very well made hardware to support it. The S6, S7 and especially S8 phones have really solid design build. Xiaomi have a selection of phones using ceramic. It all started with the HTC One (M7) in 2013 and progressed through Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in September 2014, and from the S6 onwards all higher end Samsung's had good designs and cutting 'Edge' screen technology. You have a look at the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 to be released in September this year and tell me that Android doesn't have really well made hardware. In fact as I stated it was back in 2013, and maybe there's an earlier example I'm forgetting. Apple started the really well made hardware (with a massive amount of design flaws, antenna problems, U2 IC problems, touch IC problems, the list goes on) thing 10 years ago. Some Android hardware has taken it beyond Apple.

TL;DR

Android most definitely has hardware which is very well made and here's an example from almost a year ago >



I'll add a little disclaimer; the Apple iPhone 8 will likely be right up there with the Samsung competition, and in fact will use screen technology from Samsung, idownloadblog.com/201…-8/

Apple will be using the best display panels already in use in Android phones for a number of years. I'm not getting in to the pros and cons of Apple versus Android, that's another discussion. This is just an illustration that it's false to believe that Android doesn't have cutting edge hardware and the build quality isn't up to scratch. The facts are it's probably got the best made hardware on any mobile platform currently.

I'm tempted by this but would want to hold one before committing to it. The Pixel2 is just round the corner too, but might not be the same value for money

What's you views on this vs essential phone? I think that's getting a UK release at some point? Not 100% sure of price point in that either.
I usually buy phones outright but this is quite pricey not sure if would be better going for a contract if I were to get the n8

I know what you're saying with respect to losing value. You lost £300 in only 2.5 years with the Iphone 6. If Nokia/HMD provide good support with updates, the loss on this phone will probably be slightly more. On the other hand, if Nokia are awful with updates, this phone will be down to under £100 in 2.5 years.

The only phones that don't really lose value are the good spec phones at budget prices. If you buy this P8 Lite 2017 for £140, in 2 years time it will be still worth £50 meaning a loss on only £45 per year.

As a fellow Op3 owner, I'm not tempted by this phone at all. My Op3 is still a beast and I wouldn't want to downgrade to a LCD and only 4GB RAM.

It looks to be similar on paper. I can't give a proper opinion of the essential phone though, as I haven't yet had the chance to use one. I can't really comment on the value for money either, without knowing the UK price.

Although given that its $700 in the US, it's likely to be priced at around £600 in the UK. Which doesn't strike me as being great value for money, especially considering its their first phone release.

S8 is £90 more on same contract (was only £55 more until yesterday) but with a free Gear VR. Touchwiz isn't too bad anymore, you can replace most of the weak stuff.

HTC U11 is like £520 Sim Free (which is only £20 more than the Sim Free cost of this).

N8 and E-PH-1 are both far too expensive for what they are, the EPH1 especially as the camera is terrible.

Just not a fan of Samsung.
I thought the camera has had a update improving it?
