Meanwhile, the handset comes with dual 13MP cameras with 1.12µm-sized pixels, a f/2.0-aperture lens, and optical image stabilization.
HMD Global had a slew of Nokia-branded smartphones past year that ranged from budget to flagship. While the company is offering compelling features a dual camera setup and "bothie" mode to take on the competition, DxOMark camera rankings show poor results for the Nokia 8.
The Nokia 8 has got an overall score of 68, which is even worse than the Apple iPhone 6 that was launched in September 2014. And much to the dissatisfaction of fans, this Nokia handset which has scored very low is even ranked below other smartphones such as the Redmi Note 3 and Lava Z25.
Starting off with the positive highlights, the Nokia 8 had a good general white balance and target exposure in all conditions. The testing also notes that the dynamic range is good, but only when Auto HDR is on.
U.S. is Giving Weapons to Terror Group in Syria, Turkey Says
A Syrian military source denied this and dismissed rebel talk of a counter attack as propaganda. The YPG is supported by U.S. with arms and training which angers Turkey.
Report from DxOMark reads, "In terms of texture and noise, Nokia 8 noticeably lags behind other flagship phones". In addition, the Nokia suffers from a very noticeable loss of sharpness in the field, with strong softness often visible towards the edges of the frame. The detailing in shots decreases further in indoor and low-light shooting conditions. It is also noticed that the exposure and colour are decent when the smartphone uses the built-in dual-LED flash, though some noticeable red-eye effect exists especially in flash portrait shots.
When the Nokia 8 was introduced, many had expected it to be a serious photography contender. With the Nokia 8, we had high expectations, but we were a bit disappointed with the camera performance when we reviewed it. There are some artifacts visible, but the mode delivers pleasant bokeh results. "The Nokia 8 is capable of producing decent still images, but in many situations, it can not match the image quality of the cameras in current high-end phones from most competitors", the publication report thus concludes.

When it comes to videos, DxOMark's benchmark essentially found two key areas of concern - low autofocus and stabalisation - which made them give a sub-score of 62. The stabilisation system on the Nokia 8 is said to perform on a quite similar level as the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge that was launched back in 2015. It also complains that the detail levels are quite low with a lot of blurring of fine detail and textures.
