About 8 Sirocco - Review, Specs + more

If you are looking for a high-quality alternative to the predictable and frankly rather expensive smartphones from Samsung and Apple, then the Nokia 8 Sirocco is perhaps the closest thing you'll get to an answer.

From the generous RAM to the camera with a resolution of 13 megapixels, there are a plethora of reasons to consider the offering from the Finnish giant. But are they enough to make most people part from more familiar brands? Let's find out...

Contents:

Nokia's latest flagship

The Nokia 8 Sirocco differs from the Nokia 8 primarily by the 5.5-inch large and almost borderless display. This now uses an OLED instead of an LCD panel and is curved to the sides much like Samsung's edge/plus devices - such as the Galaxy S9 Plus. In addition, the case consists almost entirely of Gorilla Glass, which gives it a very high-quality finish - not just restricted to the screen but also the rest of the phone.

Whilst the predecessor already had similar features, this phone differs quite a lot from that, too. For example the fingerprint sensor on the back and the QHD resolution. The camera setup isn't great, but we'll come to that.

Nokia 9 Sirocco: Fast, lag-free hardware

In addition, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is characterised by its rather impressive system performance (it's running on Android 9, but this should be upgradeable to Android 10). A total of 6 GB of RAM and a 2.36 GHz Snapdragon 835 eight-core processor are used. The internal memory already amounts to 128 GB.

Plus most users don't particularly need the dual SIM function, and you can insert in the hybrid slot microSD card for even more memory. A lot of phones nowadays do not allow such a function so it's a welcome change from Nokia.

Also useful is the unlimited Google Drive memory. Photos can be stored in their original resolution in the  cloud so no need for huge memory cards. Fast uploads are possible via LTE, 4G or WLAN ac standard. There is naturally no 5G here, Nokia haven't yet unveiled their 5G offering but this should be launched soon.

Other interfaces are NFC,Bluetooth 5.0,Wi-Fi Direct and more. The charging is done via a USB type C-3.1 port but there is no wireless charging here sadly.

8 Sirocco - Battery

The 3250 mAh and permanently installed battery is recharged after 50 minutes, and with the Quick Charge 4.0 technology after half an hour. Overall, the Nokia manages up to 22 hours of talk time according to this review.

Sharp photos and 4K videos with clear sound

Another highlight is the dual camera. This is composed of a 12 and 13 megapixel image sensor. Practical here is that it is a telephoto and wide-angle lens. The 2x optical zoom also has its advantages. In addition to the bright main camera with f / 1.7 aperture and 4K camcorder function (30 fps), the smartphone is equipped with a 5-megapixel front camera. For videos, it has 3 microphones and boasts a 24-bit audio performance metric - not many other phones offer that. With this feature, it can even record high volumes of up to 132 dB and in our testing we noted that sounds clearly reproduce well.

Only the Huawei P30 does it better.

Nokia 8 Sirocco - Verdict

At this price we have a right to expect some pretty special features. 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, even if they do actually cost more.

Nokia have gone all-out on design here, but this means they've had to sacrifice a few special features seen in other phones. Looking at the Nokia 8 Sirocco you might guess its designers spent so long agonising over its curves and glassy bits that by the time the phone was ready, the rest of the 5G world had moved on. It's a great looking thing though, that's undeniable.

Is SIM Only better for 8 Sirocco?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Nokia 8 Sirocco, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Nokia 8 Sirocco ee contract or a Nokia 8 Sirocco Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Nokia 8 Sirocco contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Out of our 833 Nokia 8 Sirocco deals, our cheapest Nokia 8 Sirocco deal over the entire life of the contract is £408.00, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Nokia 8 Sirocco SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Nokia 8 Sirocco handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Nokia 8 Sirocco Contract.
