Bottom Line

There’s so much more to like about the Nokia 8 than just the nostalgia factor. Solid specs, crisp cameras and fantastic form factor make it a comeback for the brand.

Would you buy this?

2017 has been a rebound year for almost too many smartphone brands to count. Samsung’s Note 8 emerged from the flames of last year’s debacle, TCL returned BlackBerry to prominence with the KeyONE and, now, HMD Global launches its latest bid to do the same with the once-mighty Nokia.

The Pitch

Building on the momentum of its initial offensive into the mass market with the value-driven Nokia 3, 5 and 6, the Finnish startup are now taking a solid swipe at the giants of the industry with the Nokia 8.

Billed as the first true flagship Nokia smartphone since the company’s heyday, the Nokia 8 is both a little larger and faster trio of devices HMD launched back in June. However, according to HMD, it’s more than just iterative - it’s innovative in ways that count, specifically when it comes to camera side of the equation.

If HMD’s initial trio of devices were aimed at getting the mass market to care about the Nokia brand again, the Nokia 8 feels like it’s intended to give enthusiasts reason to do the same. To all the Android-based smartphone vendors out there,it’s a warning shot. Ignore Nokia at your own peril. This is a smartphone that can’t be written off as mere nostalgia.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
