Wow the Nokia Sirocco is SVELTE  !!!!!

 

I was going Nokia 8 as it can be had for $600. I just wonder if I should wait a couple of months and get something I really want hehe.

I might get the Moto G5 after all, just to fill the gap. Things are so up in the air with phones being released in a couple months.

 

I did consider a oneplus 5t, they seem good?

 

But I saw a video of the Nokia 8 and you cannot tell the difference between it and an OLED with the lights turned off. What turns me off is its camera. And Id prefer a bit more screen, 5.5" and a bit less bezel, but it does look the nicest of all phones.

 

The galaxy does nothing for me, I find them quite ugly. but the s8 is $850.

 

The good thing about the Nokia being stock Android is it should get lots of updates.

Even the 3 now has a beta Oreo, a $200 720p phone.

 

I think next gen Nokias will be the bees knees. Sirocco looks insanely gorgeous, easily the best looking phone to date. Do I wait for April and buy a $200 phone now or get the Huawei Mate 10 which also has a Dex like launcher.

NorthernZone: What about the Honor 7X instead??

 

actually if you get passed the basemark, if you could get one imported for $200 it would be a good 6" phone. Its not the brightest but a bit of 500 nits is plenty. its very even with the sd625

So many options, I nearly bought the Meizu M6 note a while back as a spare phone.

 

I like the blue, I know its a bit flashy and Im not normally in to colours on phones. Perhaps I should just go black?

 

For $230 its on par with the Moto G5 PLus and the Huawei Honor 7x, but its cheaper than those 2.
