  • There's no debating the quality on offer here. It's constructed almost entirely from anodised aluminium

The editors didn't like

  • Camera is a little slow
  • Red ghosting on display in night light
  • Average low light camera performance
  • (Slightly) dated design
  • Not sure how useful OZO audio is
  • Software is confusing and frustrating in places
  • Fewer apps available than with rival phones

  • Average video quality
  • Disappointing Symbian^3 OS update

  • Average virtual keyboards
  • Unintuitive UI
  • Unimpressive internet experience
  • Confusing connection management
  • Poor social network integration
  • The Nokia N8 may have an all new operating system
  • But like older touchscreen Nokias it's still clunky compared to offerings from Apple and Android. That said

  • And there are lots of new apps on offer from the Ovi Store.
  • Symbian still isn't competitive
  • Interface still retro in aesthetics. Web browsing lacks panache
  • Screen
  • Limited

  • Price may be a little too high
  • Nonreplaceable battery
  • Chunky case
  • Non-replaceable battery

  • Revamped OS feels dated
  • Symbian^3 is limited
  • No Android killer
  • Needs a higher-res display
  • No native DivX support
  • User interface still trails the competition in ease of use
  • The N8 can be sluggish
  • QWERTY keyboard in landscape mode only

  • Beautiful design, especially with shiny effect, Dual-sensor rear camera with interesting software
  • No hugely unique features, Price may be a little too high
  • Upon first impressions, the Nokia 8 is a flagship that comes with everything you'd expect from a top of the range phone right now. There isn't a standout feature to make you want to snap up the Nokia 8 though, and with such strong flagship competition rig...

  • Nice size and build, Affordable, Pure Android Oreo software, Plenty of power
  • Camera is a little slow, Red ghosting on display in night light, Average low light camera performance
  • HMD has global ambitions for the Nokia brand and while the markets in north American and Europe have been waiting for a flagship device to square up to the established players like HTC or Samsung, in developing markets, the company says its been happy wit...

  • Polished Copper colourway, Affordable, Comfortable to hold
  • (Slightly) dated design, Not sure how useful OZO audio is
  • We liked the Nokia 8 a lot, it's an attractive flagship with a number of interesting features, made even more tempting by a competitive price (€599 / approx. £550).We're looking forward to testing it further, to see whether it's software, camera and batte...

  • Abstract:  The N8 could well become 2011's videophone of choice. Last October saw the launch of a short film called The Commuter (directed by the up-and-coming McHenry Brothers and starring Pamela Anderson and Charles Dance), which was filmed entirely on a Nokia N8....

  • Good finish, design and handling, Takes very good photos with plenty of editing options, Audio and video quality, Phone and GPS: good network reception / free maps, FM radio and translitter, voice recorder, plenty of connections (HDMI)
  • Screen: poor colour fidelity, Symbian Anna interface: better but still quite convoluted, The OS could be more responsive and smooth
  • The N8 is great for multimedia, especially for taking photos. Although it has plenty of features and handy functions, the interface is still rather convoluted and isn't that easy to get the hang of. With the Anna update, Symbian has been slightly rejuv...

  • Nice finish / handling, Very good camera, numerous retouching options, Audio and video quality, Telephone and GPS: good reception / free maps, FM tuner, dictaphone, rich connectivity
  • Screen: limited, inaccurate colours, Interface still too round the houses, Lack of responsiveness and fluidity (zoom, scrolling internet pages and so on)
  • The N8 has strong multimedia cards to play, particularly with the camera. With rich functionality, overequipped from a hardware point of view, its interface still isn't direct, logical or intuitive enough. Symbian has had a slight facelift - we'd been ...

  • Here we are again at the end of another eventful, fun packed review that I hope you have enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed using this phone.Overall I think that the N8 is a great phone worthy of calling itself a smartphone in today's market, I'...

  • Superb camera, Great build, AMOLED screen is bright and colourful
  • Symbian^3 is limited, no Android killer, Needs a higher-res display, No native DivX support
  • Photos looked sharp and detailed, with the automatic exposure and white balance controls doing a commendable job of delivering natural-looking images with well-saturated, but natural looking, colours. The two-stage shutter button is a much, much better ac...
