    As I understand, it is no chip for FM-radio in Nokia 8, so it is not possible, I use internet radio and it works great for me.

    Internet radio consumes both data plan & battery. Why I should use my data plan when I can get FM locally.

    I just told you why there is no fm-radio in Nokia 8 (some say that it is possible if Nokia/hmd activate it, I don't know).

    As far as everybody knows FM radio available in every smartphone but the manufacturers are disable it for the reason everybody knows. Example is what happened with Samsung recently in US that force them to activate it.

    You're not going to get an AM radio, the hardware just isn't there. Also FM is very much line of sight so you aren't going to get it everywhere that is for sure.


    Have you thought about putting loads of music, audio books, podcasts or whatever is your preferred audio on an SD Card?

    Oh yeah? You can download and save news? Can you? FM-radio is not only music, it is news, announcements, warning of the population about emergencies and much more! I`d like to be informed! You?

    Chill your beans user1515733488425 it was only a suggestion given while trying to be helpful, which is more than you appear to have had from Nokia so far isn't it?


    In answer to your question regarding me being informed when i am out and about I get great data coverage and i have access to literally millions of public Wi-Fi hotspots so thank you for your concern but I'll be just fine.

    I'm afraid you can forget about FM radio on your Nokia 8 device. HMD does not add it.

  • I still feel that after purchasing such an expensive phone,an FM radio shoul at least be provided. Its such a tragedy that even a simple tuner application is not available for those who want it installed.. C'mon, Nokia, bring the radio app on our phones soon!
