2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 27+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • Eye-catching, unique design - it is hard to ignore how good the 8 Sirocco looks - gone is the metal unibody of its predecessor (Nokia 8), instead, you have a mix of stainless steel and strengthened Gorilla Glass 5
  • Comfortable to hold and use
  • Waterproof design
  • The buttons have been designed to sit nearly flush with the phone so it’s not easy to tell the power and volume buttons apart without looking directly at them


  • Nice display - the slightly curved screen has thin bezels, which give the illusion of an edge-to-edge viewing experience - the screen is bright, with rich colours (viewing angles could have been better though)


  • Packs plenty of brute power with the Snapdragon 835 processor, and 6GB of RAM - it will sail through anything you throw at it, and the performance is comparable to other top-end flagship phones


  • Clean Android experience - this is the first Nokia flagship phone that is part of Google’s Android One initiative - much like the pure Android seen in phones earlier, this too is untouched by bloatware or third-party apps—the only tweak is the camera app, to better utilize the optical hardware - and of course the Android One line means that you will receive Android updates for a minimum of 2 years
  • Decent front camera too - captures decently detailed selfies, especially during the day


  • No 3.5mm jack - so your existing headphones won't work, and you will have to do with the bundled USB-C headphones
  • Stereo speakers are also missed here, and would have been nice to have, given the price bracket


  • Good battery life - will easily last an entire day with medium to heavy usage
  • Fast charging support - you can get a 50 percent charge in 30 minutes
  • Wireless charging support


  • The 8 Sirocco is just 7.5mm at its thickest point, and tapers down to 2mm around the spines, which makes it look incredibly thin
  • Good set of dual rear cameras - the captured images are genuinely good in colour and detailing - bokeh images are pretty good too, and so is low light performance - on the whole, the camera, although not class-leading, is not that far behind the the top cameras on the Google Pixel 2 or the Samsung Galaxy S9
  • No Dual SIM support
  • On the whole, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is a good phone on its own and ticks all the right boxes, but faces some tough competition from the likes of the Google Pixel 2 and the HTC U11 at this price point, and the excellent value-for-money OnePlus 5T at an even lower price point - if aesthetics is on the top of your checklist when buying a phone, then this makes for a good candidate - but for mostly everything else, Google, HTC, or OnePlus offerings may be a better buy
