up until recently would have recommend nokia however my nokia 8 has recently become victim of the widely known issue of half dead screen which was a common manufacturing fault on these devices. I'm out of warranty by a month & as such nokia won't repair unless i pay which seems ridiculous given the fault is well documents & known to be a manufacturing flaw. I expect a phone to last me more than 2 years if it's been treated well. Thus i can no longer trust nokia decives.
Whilst this particular device may not suffer the same known issue as the nokia 8, i would be concerned about other manufacturing flaws.

wow. thats a fantastic price for a seriously well-specced bit of kit! if i was in the market for a sub-£400 phone right now, i'd be all over this!
Seruously triggers my trypophobia that. Horrific
Very nice phone, a step up in luxury features/design/feel compared to Nokia 8 (Sirocco was stepping stone)

Much recommended, kinda Pixel 3 line substitute - camera might require some editing to get pictures perfect (if you're demanding), not just point and shoot

Anyone know of common faults on this model?
This phone seems very similar to the Galaxy S10 on GSM? gsmarena.com/com…867

Am I missing something?

I was under the impression, that the gurantee on an item could be up to six years, if it could be shown that theres wan an inherant fault with the product on purchase.

Don't give up, goods are expected to last a reasonable time and two years one month isn't, even for a phone. citizensadvice.org.uk/abo…15/

This is a stock Android phone, designed for photography fans, but camera (in pro mode) turned out to be more than SoC can chew, which meant photo buffs had to do post-processing.

Failing its first purpose, that market niche, it then became an excellent all-rounder for mainstream market: it has nearly all the luxury features S10 has, except a feature-rich UI, going smooth in Pixel tradition; excellent design and support. At this price, a real bargain (S10 better overall, I'd say, but will set you back double the money)

yes but aside from taking legal action which would cost me, how can i get nokia to admit liability?
there are several threads about it on the nokia forums some users had it happen to them on several occasions. The issue was so widespread that nokia actually ran out of replacement screen thus some people were issued with a refund from the original retailer as nokia could not repair the device. Of course they were still under warranty at that time.

i completely agree that a phone should last more than just over 2 years (exuding accidental damage). whats frustrating is other than this fault the device still functions correctly. Its only issue is a manufacturers flaw but as i say they're get out is that it's now outwith warranty,

So many mobiles are merging specs now it's very hard to differentiate. I think I'd prefer stock version than the colourful Samsung version. Still struggling to justify a shift from a P20 Pro to ANY new phone on the market. 2020 doesn't seem to offer any daylight to current flagships either, very marginal.

Absolutely, no point upgrading from P20 Pro...some 2018 flagships still great in 2020, you tell me, using Pixel 2xl atm, I find it close to perfection, & it's a late 2017 phone

Is there, not enough evidence to try the small claims court. Your only risk would be the fee. They would also have to send a rep. down to appear. May not be worth their while, and cough up for a repair or replacement.

Research. Writing THE SELLER a nice letter using templates available online (MSE) (CAB) usually does the trick, point out what consumer law says and state what you want.

the fee is probably going to cost more than the phone is now worth though

it was bought as part of a 24 month contract from online phone company. but the contract has now ended (same time as warranty) so not sure what they would do?
Awful lot of money for an unbranded phone. Why not just buy a Sony etc for just a little more.




Onkyo hint hint!
I still laugh about that all these years later

Sony phones won't retain there value any better
Don’t do it, I had one, the greys are not uniform on the screen, the cameras are meh and all that aside, the Fingerprint sensor never works it ruins the phone.

Indeed, it is the joke that keeps on giving.
When is the new iphone coming?
Kept the phone for less than a month. Loved the clean UI, the build quality and the responsiveness. Apart that, appalling fingerprint sensor and very, very disappointing camera, for quality and operation.

I had the issue on my Nokia 8 twice (and apart from that it's a cracking phone). Had to return to Nokia in Hungary. First time got a new screen fitted (even though the issue is on the motherboard..). That worked for 3 months then went again. Still under 2 years warranty sent back again. This time they advised that they had no spare parts as a result they sent me a new phone, and to top it all they had no more of the 64gb model so I got a 128gb model as an upgrade for free. 6 months in and no issues, but it has taken away a little from an otherwise excellent phone, and I say that as someone who came from LG after suffering from Bootloop on the also otherwise excellent G4. Not sure where I'll go on the next phone might go to the 9 if it has no issues..or just bite the bullet and go Pixel or OnePlus.

Had this phone for around 2-3 months, the battery would NEVER last a full day, would be lucky to even get past 8 hours with more than 20% battery left. Everytime you take a picture, it takes 3-5% of battery away too, probably with the sheer amount of processing its having to do. The fingerprint reader was also unusable. If they could've sorted out those 2 things, it'd be a brilliant phone.

Gave up with it in the end and went to a Mate 20 Pro for around £300 when they were doing a cashback promotion, get through a full day with more than 50% battery most days with it. Pictures are amazing too
