Nokia 8 Sirocco

 

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: A bold move from a confident Nokia, the 8 Sirocco has a curved body and plenty of high-end features

Striking steel and glass design ; 128GB storage ; Produces great daylight photos

P-OLED screen spoils the curved front ; 16:9 screen already seems dated ; Oversaturated screen no good for photo previews ; Last-generation processor

The Nokia 8 Sirocco runs Android 8.0; it’s an Android One phone. This means there’s no custom interface and it relies primarily on Google apps rather than those of the manufacturer or another developer.

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: The high-end Nokia looking to steal Samsung's crown

 

Compact design ; Android One software ; Waterproof design ; Good battery life

Display looks dated ; Ageing hardware ; Sharp edges ; Wireless connectivity issues

The flagship Nokia is about design: it's slim, with curved glass edges to its 5.5in screen, and a clean Android One software experience. But it launches on dated hardware and which, along with some connectivity issues, spells issues. It's got merit,...

Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on review

 

Finally, Nokia delivers a true blue flagship phone

Nokia 8 Sirocco review

 

It has the looks, but does it have the tech to match?

Luxury design ; Clean software ; Lots of storage

Uses a 2017 chipset ; P-OLED screen has issues ; Camera doesn’t match the best at the price

Nokia has successfully made a luxury phone, with a high-end build, generally decent specs and no software bloat, but the Nokia 8 Sirocco seems slightly dated in too many areas to fully recommend.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is too expensive for its own good

 

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is the best Nokia Android phone yet, but not exciting enough to justify the cost.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is fast, feels sturdy, has a long battery life and runs the sleek Android One operating system.

It lacks any standout features to justify its premium pricing. The Nokia 8 Sirocco's camera isn't reliable enough, and its design, while improved over the regular Nokia 8, feels stout and a little outdated.

While the Nokia 8 Sirocco does suffer from minor faults, its main issue is being outclassed by similarly-priced competitors.

Nokia 8 Sirocco

 

Nokia's most radical design to date means the 8 Sirocco rivals the Galaxy S9. It's cheaper, but that's not enough to make it better. Find out more in our full review.

Nokia 8 Sirocco review: Nokia’s first flagship shakes things up with a curved screen

 

Nokia's 2018 flagship smartphone has finally arrived. Can the curved screen and Android One OS set it apart from the competition?

Great security features ; Decent CPU and GPU performance ; Excellent in-ear headphones

Curved screen distorts video ; Problematic camera software ; Oversaturated display

Maybe you actually want a curved screen with an oversaturated display, in which case, the Nokia 8 Sirocco may just be the phone for you. If not, it’s worth picking up a OnePlus 6 or LG G7 instead.

Nokia 8 Sirocco review (hands-on): Sultry new design but not much substance

 

A sexy new design for the special edition Nokia 8 Sirocco, but this year's Finnish flagship doesn't tick ALL the boxes

Nokia is well and truly on the road to recovery as a smartphone brand and with the Nokia 8 Sirocco – a design that’s both mature and alluring – it’s certain to begin attracting fans back who might have deserted the brand over the past few years.
