Where is a good place to get the 128gb version or even if it's worth it?

Any cash back?

Probably not worth it as you can expand via mico SD

£2.50 via quidco with an extra £2.50 on quidco cashback bonus (so a total of £5 cashback)

I'm sure I read that the 128gb was exclusive to carphone warehouse. It's on offer at the minute, it also has 6gb of ram as opposed to 4gb in the 64gb version.

Thanks, currently got 128gb card in my phone already, be nice if i had 128gb internal too but it's not a deal breaker

Ah. That explains why I can't find it anywhere else.
Not sure if it's worth the extra £70

TCB have a code for £10 off plus cashback, but not working for me for some reason.

Currently got this on order at Amazon for £381 so time to switch! Thanks OP.

How do you get Amazon to price match?

According to the guy I've just spoken to on their webchat, you don't.

This phone or the p8 lite? The p8 is on offer for £150 in Argos

No comparison mate. You cant compare a £150 phone with a £350 one.

Superb phone.

I bought on 3 contract for £22/month with £40 quidco cashback.

Reviews are wrong in that battery life is superb. I easily get 2 days with normal usage.

Stock camera app is not quick to focus however camera hardware itself is great. Google pixel camera app works a treat, now camera takes superb pictures every time.

Thought screen would feel small at 5.3" compared to my old LG 5.5"screen but in actual usage it feels fine as Nokia has hard buttons for back/home/tasks.

Phone actually feels much easier to handle due to more compact size.

Not everyone will like the big bezels but it's the exact reason I went for this phone as I have major palm check issues with edge/bezel free phones.

Heat given for what I believe is the best vfm Snapdragon 835 phone on the market currently

I’ve been iPhone fan for 5 years and decided to try this out as a 2nd phone and to see what all the android fuss was about

It is truly EXCELLENT
running two contracts until March then 6s+ is going on EBay

Love this phone it’s so quick

Why can't you ? The p8 was originally £200. It's on offer. You haven't exactly given me some convincing facts! I read on here that the p8 lite has a lot of high spec features for the money. So before I part with my hard earned, I want to be sure

The Nokia 8 was originally £500, so again, you really can't compare a £200 phone with a £500 phone. It entirely depends what you think you'll get out of it.

The Nokia has the latest cutting edge mobile processor on the market, a QHD screen, 3 times as much storage, a much better camera and better build quality.

It's apples and oranges, mate. The P8 is a good little phone but that's all it is.

Just to put things in perspective, Nokia 8 was around £600 at launch and is a flagship.

Forget the money, a flagship cant be compared with a low-midrange phone as performance will be hugely different. But i guess for a user who is not aware of these things and does not face any problems with a £150 phone will not notice a huge difference as even a P9 lite or something will be quite usable in real world including browsing etc:)

Flagship level performance is for those who use their phone heavily in browsing multiple tabs, do facebook, instagram, twitter, photo editing, blogging, vlogs etc and always use their phones for the best performance

Carphone have it for 459 or 479. Something around that price.

128GB is £449 and 64GB is £499 - Yes, 64gb is more than 128gb, which means nearly £100 more than this deal including £10 off

Just ordered this seems a bargain at the specs I’m really happy with it thanks guys

I bought the OnePlus 5 a month ago and now I'm regretting it haha, shame this deal wasn't around then as it's a no brainer at this price, specwise you're talking the same Snapdragon 835 processor that's in the OnePlus 5, Pixel 2 , S8 etc at the price for a phone with that kind of hardware , I'd say this Nokia is a

Yeah i held out to see what the oneplus 5t would offer and its not worth the extra money.
Early reviews are in one the 5t and the camera is worst then it was on the oneplus 5 so, i bit and grabbed the Nokia as its too good of an offer to pass up, great spec for such little money and stock android with regular updates

Just bought this a few weeks ago for 399 😥

It says that this price is good until the weekend, so I'm going to gamble that they don't run out of stock and wait to see if it comes down on Amazon.

Stuck a price match request in, so we'll see what happens.

Seen reviews saying the fingerprint scanner isn't the best. Anyone have any comments? My S7 edge is on its way for a repair for the second time as I have smashed the screen having no idea how... These phones without bezels are great and all but fed up of it breaking randomly!

From a reply on the XDA forums - "One thing worried me from the reviews and that was the accuracy and speed of the fingerprint sensor which was supposed to be poor. Coming from an HTC 10 with an excellent sensor I was concerned. I've been glad to find the review opinions is absolute hogwash. The Nokia sensor is every bit as accurate and fast as you'd expect it to be in a flagship".

To be honest that's not entirely my experience. I *don't* find it to be inaccurate as some have said - it reads my fingerprints fine - but it's definitely slower at unlocking the device than any device I've used recently.

Wow is this 100% stock droid then?

Anyone having any issues with the NFC on this phone?

There seemed to be some initial disappointment simply based in the relatively small capacity battery, but all the reviews I've seen say that the liquid cooling they've implemented has given it impressive lasting power.

One review quotes nearly 19 hours of continuous video playback.

I've had the phone for around 2 weeks, battery is great, lots better than the S6 edge plus I had, it last a full day of moderate usage where my old phone required charging around 5pm. The camera is ok a little slow when taking pictures but I have put the google pixel apk on and now the camera is quick and also used HDR+. Fantastic phone very quick.

Anyone use this on EE, and does wifi calling work? I have a nexus 5x and would like to upgrade to this, but its one thing I can't loose.
