There’s no doubt that Nokia re-entered the smartphone market with a bang. Their flagship — Nokia 8 — got some good coverage, while horde fancied their phone for nostalgic reasons. And we are sure it won’t be any different with their upcoming Nokia 9 either. However, a recent test from the lab of DxOMark has slacked the phone’s popularity.

The test shows that the Nokia 8 lacks a lot in terms of camera, despite its Zeiss optics. DxOMark’s list consists of Huawei Mate 10 Pro going neck to neck against the iPhone X at the second place [with the score of 97], while the Nokia 8 poorly sits there with a score of 68. In case you’re wondering, the Google Pixel 2 tops the chart with the highest score of 98 (the score’s not out of 100).
Surprisingly enough, even the Lava Z25 beats the Nokia 8, with the phone (Lava Z25) sitting just above it with a score of 70. Thankfully, though, the phone beats the company’s own Nokia 808 PureView.
As per the report, the device lags behind other smartphones in terms of texture and noise. The image produced by the phone has strong noise in areas of plain colours even in good lighting condition, while — without any doubt — the low-lighting photography is even worse.
The autofocus of the phone is decent, though, it is slow in a dark environment. Exposure and colour, as stated, is decent with dual-LED flash, however, the presence of red eye can be seen. The phone’s Bokeh is good but not best in the business.
The Nokia 8 even lags down in the video department. The autofocus sometimes doesn’t even work in low-lighting condition, while, on the other hand, videos produced by the phone has a narrow dynamic range and unreliable exposure. As stated, the phone’s video shooting capability is nearly similar to Samsung Galaxy S6; a three years old phone. Not good Nokia, not good.
