Nokia 8 Sirocco Review and Pros Cons:

Nokia reinvented the nostalgic Nokia Sirocco as Nokia 8 Sirocco at MWC, Barcelona. Nokia 8 Sirocco is the rebooted, new age version of Nokia 8800 Sirocco launched way back in 2006. The smartphone oozes the premium appeal with a stainless steel body with sandwiched glass design. The smartphone is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the sides. The smartphone features an edge to edge 5.5-inch POLED display, with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels at 16:9 ratio making a pixel density of ~534 PPI. The display is just marvellous to look at being an OLED display, the contrast levels are high and the colours just pop out. The saturation levels are well balanced and are really probably the best display on a Nokia smartphone. 

Nokia 8 Sirocco is actually a 2017 flagship from the insides as It is powered by a Snapdragon 835 and has Adreno 540 to handle graphics-intensive tasks. Not that Snapdragon 835 is a weak SoC, It just doesn’t feel right to pay a fortune for a smartphone with a year old SoC. There’s an ample 6GB of RAM and comes with 128GB of onboard storage. The storage is not expandable via MicroSD and most people would not need an expansion after 128GB. On benchmarks, Nokia 8 Sirocco has an impeccable performance in 6483 and 1949 on multi-core and single core GeekBench tests and a humongous 207339 on AnTuTu. 

Nokia has been known for providing the complete smartphones. One of the major portions of that belief comes from the camera performance of Nokia smartphones. The world-renowned Zeiss optics is back on board with HMD Global and we couldn’t be more excited. Nokia 8 Sirocco boasts a dual camera setup composed of a primary 12MP,  f/1.75 with 1.4-micron pixel size sensor with Optical Image Stabilisation. The secondary sensor is a 13MP, f/2.6 one. The optical image stabilisation on the rear sensor makes for some really great shots with great detail and well-balanced colours. Dynamic range is sound as well. The camera is a decent performer in low light but It is still not as good as the likes of Pixel 2 or iPhone X as there are visible noise levels. There’s a dedicated Pro Mode in the camera app to let users control each and every aspect of the camera like shutter speeds, ISO and more, which is really appreciated by the camera freaks. For selfies, there’s a 5MP, f/2.0, 1.4micron pixel size, a sensor on the front. The camera is good but not the best selfie taker as It doesn’t capture enough details like other high-end smartphones. The camera organisation on the Sirocco takes a dip from Nokia 8 which is beyond comprehension.  The camera is actually much similar to that on Nokia 7 Plus, which costs half of what Sirocco does. The front camera also supports a bokeh mode via software processing but the edges are not that clear. The camera is good but It is not flagship-grade-good from HMD.

Nokia 8 Sirocco is powered by Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box and being under Google’s Android One Program, Nokia 8 has near stock Android with Promise of Android P and Q updates whenever they arrive without any delay, straight from Google. We really love the software on Nokia smartphones, It clean, simple, less bloated and totally performant. The faster updates are the cherry on top.

Nokia 8 Sirocco has a Non-removable, 3260mAh battery. The battery is enough to get you through the day but If you are a heavy-user there’s no harm in keeping a charger with you. The glass back enables, Qi-standard wireless charging as well as Qualcomm fast charging 4.0, so you get 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes of charge. Thankfully, the fast charger is included in the box. As is customary with all high-end smartphones, Nokia 8 Sirocco ditches the headphone jack. The smartphone is IP67 dust and water resistant, though It is not as good as the IP68 rating on the Galaxy S9, It will save the smartphone a lot from accidental liquid spills and showers.

Overall the smartphone is a complete performer. With perfect stylish and looks, wireless charging, fast charging, amazing build quality and performance, this has everything one looks on a phone but the pricing is higher than what it offers compared to what other smartphones offer.
