    Hi, I'm from England. I bought the Nokia 8 early September 2018. I have had to reduce my active Apps down to 3 with only two notifications (Phone and Texts) yet the Battery is down from full charged to less than 15% within 20 Hours. I make and receive few Calls and even fewer Texts. Everything else about the
    Phone is great but because of the Battery, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    Using my 8 for over a year now… still very happy with it. Battery life is still great, Nokia keeping true to their promise with regular security updates (I'm on october 2018 patch) and because of build quality it still looks like new.

    This polished copper was available for 366€ for a brief time period like two months back from a thrustworty seller. I didn't buy it. I just hate that color and didn't buy it. I kind of regret it.

    People they may release lot of good videos to promote the product, but, I am using the Nokia 8 since 1 month now and it has a worst camera (Lumia had an excellent camera), charging port is mini usb and not micro that means you need to have dedicated charger and power bank cable..Apps like screen mirroring which is available is basic products is not available in Nokia 8…Think twice before investing such a big amount…Better options are available in the same price range…
