Nokia 8 review: Nokia looks and Nexus feel make for a very enjoyable experience

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

Confused nostalgia. It's hard to find another way to describe my feeling right now as I sit down to write this Nokia 8 review. For those who don't know my history, my career covering mobile devices started with a personal blog in 2006 and a Nokia 3250 XpressMusic. For several years, I was Dotsisx (.sisx), a nickname that evokes how much I was involved with the Symbian OS. I reviewed phones, I covered events, I spent hours daily looking for the best apps and games.

Hands-on with Oreo on the Nokia 8: A mildly flavored Stock Android 8.0 version

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

I've had the Nokia 8 for a little over a week and have run Android 7.1.1 on it out of the box. Yesterday though, Nokia announced a beta labs program to test out Oreo on the Nokia 8 and I instantly jumped at the opportunity. After downloading and installing the update, the Nokia 8 booted into Android 8.0 and I started looking for the small changes that Nokia has implemented this time around.

Nokia 7 unveiled, with a Snapdragon 630, glass back, and ‘bothie’ camera mode

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Yesterday in China, HMD Global announced the newest member of its range of Nokia branded Android smartphones. We've seen the wallet-friendly Nokia 3 and 5, the mid-range Nokia 6, and most recently came the flagship Nokia 8. While it might appear that HMD doesn't know how to count, the Nokia 7 announcement at least takes us one step closer to a full house. The Nokia 2 and 9 are on the way soon, too.

OnLeaks posts renders of the Nokia 9, showing off curved glass and no headphone jack

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Nokia is making phones again, but most of them have been mid-range or cheaper phones. The rumored Nokia 9 will be a flagship phone, and now we have a good idea what it looks like thanks to OnLeaks' latest collaboration with Compareraja. The Nokia 9 looks like a sleek device, but the company is exhibiting an excess of courage by ditching the headphone jack.

As with all renders from OnLeaks, these images are based on CAD files of the phone.

Nokia 8 excels in JerryRigEverything’s durability tests, despite using same aluminum as bend-prone iPhone 6 Plus

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

The Nokia 8 might not be officially sold here in the US, but in other parts of the world, it'll get into a lot of hands. Because of this, YouTuber/phone destroyer JerryRigEverything decided to buy a brand new unit for the sole purpose of scratching, burning, and bending it. Oh, and also for carving the Twitter logo into the back.

After unboxing the phone, Zack (not Jerry) wastes no time in beginning the torture.

Nokia's Android product line is already getting a tad confusing. HMD Global currently manufactures four Nokia-branded devices, ranging from super-budget to flagship - the 3, 5, 6, and 8. Now HMD appears to be working on an even cheaper device, dubbed the 'Nokia 2.'

While rumors of this device have been circulating for a while, the above press renders were leaked by Evan Blass on Twitter today. Per previous leaks, the phone is expected to have a Snapdragon 210/212 chipset with a 720p display (somewhere between 4.5-5").

Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8 will get Android 8.0 Oreo

Monday, September 4th, 2017

The recent Nokia-branded phones from HMD Global have been pretty popular. The goal of a near-stock Android ROM with quick updates has also caused Android enthusiasts to take notice, especially as many budget phones don't receive major updates at all.

While HMD Global has been quick with smaller updates, like Android 7.1, the real test comes with major Android upgrades. Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, tweeted earlier today that the entire Nokia lineup will receive Oreo.
