Hi everybody! I have a question for all of you:
Did you use your phones with case before the half screen problem appear?
Yes, I used it with a case: mumbi case for Nokia 8 transparent black (https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B074WCBVN3/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
Please, don't blame the case! Haha I would say most people use one, in order to protect the quite expensive phone from falls and others...
To all of you: did you use your phones with case before the problem appear? Maby the phone overheating...
My phone is back. Lets see how long it will last this time.
1st screen issue: april 2018
2nd screen issue: june 2018
3rd screen issue: TBC
I suggest you to report the problem to Nokia Support. They need to look into it. Ive had my phone repaired twice already.
Or sell it off to someone while you still can.
Good phone (mediocre camera though) if it wasn't for this glaring fault.
I am having the same problem, i have purchased the NOKIA 8 in March 2018 after 4 months half of left screen become gray & dotted. After so many years i again believe in Nokia and purchase nokia 8 but completely disappointed with this. People in Nokia don't even look into the problem they are saying the product is out of warranty due to liquid spot they found inside. I have shown them that this half screen died problem is being faced by many people so please report to company about the problem but they don't care about the customer voice. I seriously recommend people please don't go for NOKIA 8.
I am also having a useless Nokia 8 just 4 months old due to half screen died because of Nokia design a faulty product. They don't even want to listen customer voice, as well as they don't want to improve the product.
Since May 14, I haven’t the phone, it is always under repair. The problems that you accurately describe in my case, it was the left working side and the right dead side. The phone has insurance, has already been spent on repairs of 263 euros and 4 months, but the warranty workshop of NOKIA in Estonia continues to waste time and effort on repairs.
same issue, I only bought my phone last October so it hasn't even been a year. This seems to be far too common an issue - Nokia should do a recall. This is unacceptable quality for a company with reputation for exceptional hardware quality.
For the first time in my life I consider myself unfortunate to have had multiple issues with my smartphone(Nokia 8) purchase and I deeply regret it. I bought the phone on 10th March 2018, and in the month of june i had a dead display. Submitted the phone for replacement of the display. Soon the rear camera started having problems , wavy display and focusing motor making a humming noise. did not bother to go to service again. tried upgrading camera firmware , no luck. but guess what the display dies again, but only the right part of it this time. now they have replaced the motherboard and I am yet to get it in my hands. Wish me luck.
phone has just been sent away again for the same half screen issue
after 2 half screen issues i have a replacement being sent
After 7 months of use it did not want to start up anymore. I got it back from repair and now after 3 weeks the left part of my screen has static on it. Inbetween my Nokia 8810i and Nokia 735(which luckily still works after 4 years) I have never had any quality issues with Nokia.until the Nokia 8. I will send it in for repair one more time. I am not amused and I hope this is fixed properly this time. I am a Nokia fan and i even lived in Espoo for about two years. This is your flagship phone and your biggest usp was quality in the past. I am not so sure anymore about this now.anymore. either do I have time to waste on crappy phones..
I am the biggest fan of NOKIA. I too got the same problem. right side working left side dead. given my mobile to the service center on 24th-sept-2018 they asked one month time. warranty will be finished in 15 days. Don't know what to do after completing warranty if the same problem repeats.. very pathetic Nokia.
for flagship mobile this problems.....
Got my nokia 8 mobile 3 weeks back. I have the following issues with my mobile.
1. When I unlock the screen, the display starts blinking (on and off). I have to restart it (multiple times) to resolve the issue temporarily. When we restart, the blinking starts right from the booting screen (NOKIA logo). Sometimes, when we restart,nothing will be displayed except the blank and grey screen blinking.
2. Sometimes left part of the screen die! Soon the blinking follows.
I have turned off glance and adpative brightness, did factory reset, did hard reset from recovery, enabled hw overlay option from developer options, still no luck. Issues exist in safe mode as well.
Even i am facing the same problem. I have sent it for repair now and is under warranty. But what happens after warranty period is over and get the same issue?
I also have a similar issue with the display cable connector loosing its integrity. Screen turns black, starts blinking (on/off), or only one half of it functioning. Screen itself does not have any exterior damage. Looks like Nokia made an design error with this cable/connector.
Hi, I've got the exact same issue with mine too, I'll be sending my phone back for repair. This has been a big disappointment from when I got it... I had so high hopes... After almost 2 decades of me buying, and promoting Nokia's, and convincing loads of people I know and via blog posts to buy Nokia's, this is the final straw which broke the camels back. I will be selling this once I get it back and finding another brand.
