    I have suddenly started having this problem from last 1 month. It was sporadic initially till it reached a stage where i couldn't use my camera. At times the phone restarts when I open any app.

    Went through a lot of forums and noticed a few things

    1. Fast charging was not working

    2. Phone is getting heated up quickly

    3. The restart happens whenever the phone is heated and there is a message in battery setting saying that the battery is draining fast

    Went by gut feel and changed the battery. Been 48 hrs now and no issues so far. Can also see that the fast charge is back

    Would suggest that you try changing the battery. Costed me INR 1540 on Amazon and 200 to get it replaced at a local shop. Taking the screen off was tough and there is a slight damage to the screen now but nothing that stops me from using the phone or touch screen.

    Overall I believe this is a battery issue.

  • Best solution I did whith those battery issues is using power bank everytime

    All Nokia 8 users who is facing issue of auto reboot and speaker issue why can't we solve the same issue legally.

    Because batteries wear out..:

    The manufacturer's limited warranty on batteries varies by location and local consumer rights.

    Or you pay for a battery replacement yourself, if you believe the phone is worth it.

    I'm yet another user from India who can confirm all these problems in the last 1 month.

    1. Extremely slow charging

    2. Random freezes with a beep and reboot. Initially it was rare but now it gives up randomly, 5-10 times a day.

    3. Camera causes instant reboot.

    4. Very distracted audio of notifications. Alarm and message tones especially.

    5. Definitely reboots when trying antutu benchmark meaning any process intensive task is causing reboots. Whenever the processor needs high power, it reboots.

    6. Again, like other users mentioned. No issues when charger is plugged in.

    @Santhakumar John ,

    The HMD camera app in Nokia 8 phones comes with the Android OS version, it is 'baked into' the firmware, and the app cannot be downloaded or updated through the Play Store. The error you see in Play Store is normal and as expected.

    The restart issue you and others are facing is either caused by a worn out battery, or possibly other hardware failure.

    There are several reports that a battery replacement resolved the restarting issue, so that is the best suggestion this forum can provide.

    If you want a second opinion please consult the official support via the options in the 'My Phone' app on the phone.

    The manufacturer's limited warranty vary by location and local consumer rights, or you pay for inspection and repair yourself.

  • HMD/Nokia just like a child. No one go for more Nokia. Nokia phone is useless thing I have evere buy. Nokia down. Nokia down. Nokia down. Let's make social strike against Nokia. Friends let's move against Nokia in future.

  • Nokia down.. Nokia down ...Nokia down. Nokia is useless thing I ever buy... Friends let's make a social strike against Nokia. We want no more Nokia/HMD global.

    Restart problem even after pie update.

    Phone only works properly whole plugged in charger else its getting restated.


  • I changed my battery in December at an authorised service centre. The same issue (phone restarting, camera issue at first but now any app, many times even after entering the PIN, sound issues) has now rendered my phone unusable... Factory reset last night only made it worse

  • I promise to give up Nokia handsets for ever but exploit the end drop of my Nokia 8 (purchased January, 2018). This is why I have purchased a power bank experimentally and set that always together with when my handset is on and finally I am successful to stop the restart problem of my Nokia 8. You can follow me. Thanks.

  • This problem is started after last update hmd can fix it by another software update.

  • Does Any one know How to Flash A nokia 8 TA 1004
