Just received a Nokia 8 64GB today. Charged during the day, taking home now. You can ask questions here.

I am keenly interested in your feedback on this handset.

I note in Australia they are bringing in a 3G version of the rebooted 3310, wonder if we will see that sneak in over here.

Is it locked to Spark? I was impressed with durability tests I have seen , with the 6 they have a big extra plate inside that is screwed to the casing, making it very very strong and difficult to bent it, not sure if they do that with the 8.

Nice and responsive. No bloatware - only non Google app seems to be the Spark app that comes pre-installed.

 

Running Android 7.1.1 July 2017 security level out of the box. Used NFC to authenticate with my existing Android and let it download the apps (120 of them). I haven't added my Exchange accounts yet.

 

It's not locked to Spark. It shows 4G+ on Spark but 4G only on Vodafone. Ran a speedtest (Johnsonville tower). The download speeds on Spark were the same as Vodafone but upload on Spark were double of the Vodafone. 

 

 

Great feel and it plays the Nokia tune when you turn it on! Fingerprint scanner works well and acts as home button as well.

 

Haven't tried the camera yey.

 

Impressed so far.

 No FM radio? I suspect not (according to the reviews I've read).

@freitasm what are the ergonomics like? Weight, hand fit, pocket fit, one handed use. I know Wellington’s weather has been poop this weekend but what’s outside readability like.

If feels nice on your hand, albeit a bit slippery surface on the back. Smooth finish. The screen is nice and readable and very responsive. The fingerprint scanner in the front is a bit annoying as it vibrates when you touch it - I personally don't like this, so a personal preference only.

Is the camera image quality comparable to a Nokia Lumia 930 (for example)? They both use Zeiss cameras eh?

Yes they do but the camera application is fairly basic but all the reviews so far have been pretty happy with the end results.

Is the 32GB version of the Nokia 6 the only one to be sold in NZ?
