I'm not sure about Nokia 7.1 and OZO audio, but when installed it on Nokia 8 you have control of the mics and everything works, offcourse with some other bugs, because this camera app version is not intended to Nokia 8.

    BTW this camera app is not only for Nokia 7.1, all Nokia phones from 5 2017 to Nokia 8.1 are using the same app, but with different functions available. Only Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 are using completely different app.

    Can I get a link to what you've downloaded? I'd like to check it out myself.

    Interesting, it definitely says OZO enabled. According to Wikipedia, it's available for the 7+, 6.1 and Sirocco, but only the last one is branded as having it. In any case it might have been implemented for one of those.

    @Jivko Antonov i can never work out which camera app is for which phone or which Android version. How do you know?

    Because I have a friends with Nokia 5, 7plus, 7.1 and 8 :) Also in my country forum of Nokia I always ask about camera app version :) just to know if there is any progress of HMD.

    Regarding the crackling OZO audio issue I now routinely delete a first 20 seconds 'dummy' video clip before recording the video I want to keep.
    Sometimes it's still like this August 2018 recording but now sadly often takes longer before it settles down. The sharp 'tics' scare @jumble when played on Chromecast and my old KEF loudspeakers:

    It lasts longer in my case and it's not too weak. It could be some kind of hardware problem after all, maybe we all have faulty microphones (or some other component) to certain extent. Wouldn't surprise me at all.
    I downloaded again the camera app from Nokia 7.1(Oreo version) and this crackling noises are missing. The sound is perfect. So the problem is again software.
    I downloaded Nokia 7.1 cam app too and crackling was also absent at first (obviously it was 'warmed up') but noises returned later. Since I'm getting crackling in all audio recording software (one friend also says she hears it at the beginning of our phone call conversations), if software related, the problem is with the main firmware, not at the camera app level.
    Anyway, after 10 days of trying it seems I've finally succeeded getting support to escalate this issue with their Research & Development department. Let's see what happens, if anything...

    Someone just reported crackling on the 9 PureView too: https://community.phones.nokia.com/discussion/comment/89085/#Comment_89085 - skip to 10minutes into that vid.

    @Dzep I suggest you contact support directly, your phone may need to be repaired or replaced:  https://www.nokia.com/phones/locale/support
    And if you're in the EU then you should be able to return it if you're within the 14 day cooling off period. Check the details of the retailer you bought it from.

    I don't think I have the crackling problem, I need to check my videos properly. However, when I turn the phone on I can hear 3 (I think) distinct clicks coming from the phone, but I don't know exactly where.

    Yes but different type of clicking/crackling. Sounds like scratching.

    The only reason HMD don't use it is because they would have to pay Microsoft to use it.

    With HMD wanting to stay as true to vanilla Android as possible they will never use it i guess.

    I want to share the problems that Android Authority has with the new Nokia 9.

    This site is my favourite for news and reviews and I think they are very objective with all phones they test.

    This is maybe the only site that tells the truth about Nokia 9. And the truth hurts, Sarvikas...

    "The fingerprint readers on the OnePlus 6T, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and Galaxy S10 are uneven at best. Unfortunately, HMD Global has found a new low. Of all the under-the-glass fingerprint readers I’ve tested, the Nokia 9 PureView’s is by far the worst. Training it is no problem, but the reader just won’t recognize your print after a half-dozen attempts. The worst part is the phone constantly asks you to press the display harder and harder. I practically broke the Gorilla Glass trying to get the phone to unlock."

    "Sorry, HMD, but you screwed this one up. The under-the-display fingerprint reader is unusable. If you buy this phone, you’ll do well to ignore it altogether and stick to a pattern, PIN, or password for now."

    "The 845 has valiantly powered the best phones of the last year. Qualcomm’s SoC is the beating heart of flagships such as the Galaxy S9Xperia XZ3OnePlus 6T, and Pixel 3. On benchmarks such as GeekBench, AnTuTu, and 3DMark, you’ll see that the Nokia 9 does well. In fact, it scored significantly higher than the Galaxy Note 9. That’s impressive. The reality of using the Nokia 9 doesn’t quite live up to these scores, however, and I blame the software. Even after HMD Global pushed a major system update, the Nokia 9 runs somewhat poorly — not all the time, mind you, but often enough to notice. Apps sometimes hang or crash completely. Some apps take too long to open, while others pop open in a blink. The camera, in particular, suffers consistently."

    "If I’m to complain about anything, it’s charging times. The phone simply takes too long to charge, particularly via Qi wireless chargers. Phones such as the Note 9 and Mate 20 Procharge significantly quicker when used with the same Qi charger."

    "I hate to say it, but the camera app stumbles badly. I’m talking the performance of the app itself. It’s painfully slow to open, like two to five seconds slow. I easily missed shots of my kids playing basketball because the camera app couldn’t get its act together."

    "The pain continues after the app is open. Like many camera apps, you can switch between shooting modes (photo, video, bokeh, time-lapse) by swiping the viewfinder from side to side. The process of doing this on the Nokia 9 is infuriatingly pokey. Then there are the app crashes and freezes. The camera app simply gave up and died at least a half dozen times."

    "Other phones suffer from some of these same issues. Considering the four-way partnership between HMD, Qualcomm, Light, and Zeiss, I had high expectations. Sadly, those expectations have been dashed.

    We’ve reached out to HMD to see if another software update is planned, perhaps something that can resolve some of these performance issues, and the company has said it’s looking into it. That’s not quite good enough for a $699 device."


    So, to me it sounds that Nokia 9 is a crap and this is fresh new flagship, and here we are crying for our old Nokia 8 to be perfect .It looks like Nokia 9 will be their biggest fall and will be busy to fix a lot of bugs.

    At this point I'm feeling happy with my Nokia 8 and the very stable February update :)

    I read the whole review. It seems Nokia 9 has the same adaptive brightness implementation as our Nokia 8. Not good. And yes, low light photos still suck.

    Actually with February update the adaptive brightness is perfect for me. I adjusted the slider according to my taste of how bright or dim to be the screen and it remembered.
    Really, I don't have any complaints.

    Lol maybe my experience isn't that bad after all, at least my problems came after launch. 

    I'd need a lot of convincing before it seems like a better deal than getting a Note 9 or something.

    @Jivko Antonov yes there are definitely problems with the 9 PureView, but I don't think that will draw attention away from the 8; I think it will actually highlight the fact that HMD need to back up their slogan "just keeps getting better" with actions, on all phones.

    @petrus, that's not Jivko's review, it's a copy/paste from Android Authority.

    OK, then it has a different dimension. Thank you for notifying me. :)

    In my experience there is no such thing as a "last" Nokia, only the most recent one ;)

    Just like pints :D
