Hunter's comment

In my opinion, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is a solid phone, but not quite strong enough to earn a top score at its relatively high price.

One would assume that at this price, we have a right to expect some pretty special features. Well here isnthe spoiler, in some areas we get them, in others we don’t.

Design is a highlight. The Nokia 8 Sirocco has an impressive Gorilla Glass 5 and steel frame, with an eye-catching curved front. Few phones feel as expensive as this.

Not every part of the design is a hit, though. As the phone has a 16:9 screen rather than the now more popular 18:9 (or even 19:9) style, it already seems dated. There’s also no memory card slot or headphone jack, sure to grate with some of you.

128GB of storage should be enough for most, mind, and other extras include a rear fingerprint scanner, triple microphone array and wireless charging.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco performs well generally, but does not have a cutting-edge chipset. It uses 2016/2017’s Snapdragon 835 CPU instead of the newer Snapdragon 845. This may be fast enough for just about any purpose, but cheaper or similarly priced phones have the newer version.

In summary, if you are looking for a very fine, sleek phone without regards for other high end specs, then this is the phone for you.

Its camera also struggles a little against the best around. The Nokia 8 Sirocco has a high-quality 12MP main sensor with a 13MP secondary one for 2x zoom images.

This combination opens up more compositional scope, but doesn’t offer the best low-light or HDR images among top-end phones.

It’s all powered by a 3,260mAh battery with fast charging. While not as large as that of the Nokia 7 Plus, it’ll see you through a day’s use easily, with some charge left for the second day if you can’t plug-in overnight.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco doesn’t sink rivals with its hardware, and does not offer the value of the Nokia 7 Plus. In some ways it lags behind that cheaper phone.

A lot of the appeal therefore boils down to the pretty design.
