  • They still need a better software team. I’ve tried suggesting stuff to them but all you get back is (we done want to add bloat ware) but theirs bloat ware and just having something so stock it’s unusable which they don’t seem to get.

  • Just recieved mine, love it, it feels premium but not top notch, the screen is bright and colorful, just oversaturated...The camera soft is slow indeed specially with the post processing, hope they will heal it with updates !

  • The cameras are NOT all the same, two of them have monochrome sensors that collect much more light than RGB sensors, this way the camera is superior in low light. You also forgot to mention the fact that you can refocus the image AFTER taking the shot. That is a huge deal.

  • It actually takes freaking amazing pictures, possibly better than Apple, has an under the screen fingerprint sensor and more for $699.

  • Be interested to see how 5 photos at once and processing them impacts the battery life? No good having all this and then running out of battery because of it. Very interested In possibly pre ordering the phone.

  • reporter doest understand the idea of the 5 cameras in nokia 9... its not stupidly like in other smartphones where the other cameras literally dont do anything while you take the picture, they are just there because of their different focal length. in nokia all the 5 cameras in different angles take the picture same time allowing it to capture many times more light and data than other smartphones. the camera angles also give nokia incredible depth of field and real camera bokeh effect.
