Nokia 8 Sirocco review

HMD Global has been making a significant name for itself off-late, rejuvenating the element telephone showcase and discharging a shocker of a telephone in the Nokia 7 Plus. While the Nokia 7 Plus went up against the mid-run fragment, Nokia's participant in the premium cell phone section is the Nokia 8 Sirocco.

The dispatch of the Sirocco comes not as much as a year after the organization propelled the Nokia 8 a year ago. This isn't the Nokia 8 (2018), which I audited in January, or some such incremental refresh. The Sirocco moniker is a return to the dazzling Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition telephones from yesteryear, when Nokia was at the highest point of its amusement. The Sirocco moniker is, unmistakably, a wistfulness play, yet I can't generally grumble about that.

Given the Nokia and Sirocco marking, I anticipated that would discover a cell phone that was as rich as it was useful, a telephone that could go up against any semblance of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Apple iPhone X and still dominate the competition.

Manufacture and Design

Appropriate out of the container, the Nokia 8 Sirocco appears to be unique and similarly more premium than the Nokia 8. It likewise resembles it's equipped for standing its ground against existing rivalry. With its glass back and steel outline, the Sirocco surely feels strong.

The front and the back of the gadget accompany a 2.5D glass complete, where the bended glass meets the steel outline along the edges. HMD Global has decided on-screen route catches for equipment catches to build the screen size of the show. The screen and configuration don't take after the close bezelless, score toting plans that are currently the standard. Be that as it may, the telephone's more extensive frame factor with its 16x9 angle proportion separates it.

Moving to the outline of the gadget, clients will discover a pOLED  show that bends to join the metal casing on the sides of the gadget. HMD has likewise included a similarly longer speaker barbecue at the highest point of the gadget. HMD Global has not selected the indent, and has rather run with a more conventional outline with best and base bezels. With regards to plan, I extremely preferred the way HMD incorporated the metal power catch, volume rocker and the SIM plate with the Sirocco's metal edge.

The glass back gives the Sirocco an exceptional vibe, however that glass back is additionally a unique finger impression magnet. Gratefully, fingerprints can without much of a stretch be wiped off. The double camera unit on the back of the gadget is settled in a raised lodging. The focal arrangement of this lodging makes the telephone somewhat clumsy to utilize when it's laid level in light of the fact that the telephone wobbles. You will locate the double LED glimmer and amplifier unit on either side of the camera sensor. HMD has picked to put the unique mark sensor on the back of the gadget.

Clients will discover the USB Type-C port, speaker flame broil and a mouthpiece at the base of the gadget. Shockingly, the adored earphone jack is mysteriously gone. You should utilize a USB-C to 3.5 mm dongle. Fortunately, it's incorporated into the bundle.


Nokia 8 Sirocco accompanies a 5.5-inch QHD show in a now bizarre 16:9 perspective proportion.

HMD Global has pressed in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC alongside 6 GB random access memory and 128 GB inward capacity. It accompanies a double camera setup on the back of the gadget, which includes a wide 12 megapixel f/1.75 unit combined with a tele 12 megapixel f/2.6 unit. The front highlights a baffling 5 megapixel f/2.0 unit.

As far as availability alternatives, Sirocco just backings a solitary SIM, microSD card-based extension, Type-C USB 3.1 port and Bluetooth 5.0. It additionally accompanies a 3,260 mAh battery with help for Quick Charge.


The Nokia 8 Sirocco accompanies a bended, 5.5-inch QHD show highlighting Corning Gorilla Glass 5 assurance. QHD means 1440x2560 pixels, which additionally means a pixel thickness of 534 PPI. This, at any rate, implies that the screen is sharp.

Shading precision is a long way from culminate with the white adjust of the show tending towards the cooler end of the range – bluer hues. The immersion of the pictures repeated on the show is on the higher side and I wish that the show had more uniform shine.

I saw that the show appeared to feature a slight yet perceptible vignetting on the sides on account of the bended show. The splendor levels likewise take a plunge at the edges. Review edges are likewise very awful, with splendor falling forcefully when seeing the screen at even a slight point.

An additionally baffling issue is palm dismissal, which is non-existent. The show bends to the very edges of the telephone, which implies it's difficult to hold the telephone without touching the screen, making palm dismissal a fundamental element. This was most baffling when writing as the cursor would in some cases haphazardly bounce around the screen.

The show performed well in brilliantly lit conditions, yet the intelligent idea of the show can at times constrain you to search out shade.

Notwithstanding astounding determinations on paper, true use uncovers an excessive number of defects.


Nokia 8 Sirocco is an Android One-controlled gadget. Android One is an accomplice program by Google where gadgets will have considerably quicker access to the most recent security refreshes and the most recent Android constructs. The gadget runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the case alongside the most recent 1 April Android security fix.

Considering the gadget has Android One, it runs a stock-like Android UI, guaranteeing that Sirocco clients get a relatively unmodified Android encounter. Like the Nokia 8, the gadget accompanies a modest bunch of Nokia applications including 'Support', 'Documents', and the 'Camera' application. Like the Nokia 8, HMD Global has added custom programming symbols to these applications to give them a uniform look. The product does not accompany any bloatware and the whole experience is zippy with no slack or lulls.
