    oh, i see. Well the compass points to the wrong direction for me, too (well i don't use maps often, so haven't noticed so far) Ok Google is something so useless, that i never use it. I don't see any problems with the camera. Takes pictures and videos. And face unlock works perfectly @Hamdan Gmac 
    Glance is really a useless features since it offers only limited notification.

    @Dzep as I suggested in another thread, contact support directly: https://www.nokia.com/phones/locale/support

    You could also try dialling *#*#372733#*#* and do the vibrator test.

    You have to be a member for 24 hours before you can create a new discussion. It's to reduce the number of people posting the same thing as a new topic - "where's my security / pie update?".

    @ ΜΙΝΩΣ

    I gave up and bought the official Nokia flip case, which has really tough corners. The flap actually makes the phone easier tohold. I use my Nokia 8 everywhere, all the time,and have dropped it countless times. The only damage I have to my screen so far is three tiny dots top right hand of the screen where it hit asphalt...

    I think the HMD team have unblocked the spam filter with very interesting consequences!

    Megan wrote something about "clearing the moderation feed" ... with indeed some interesting consequences: (multiple) repeated posts, wrong time stamps etc.

    My comment on choice of cover still applies, but I have scratched the screen in a couple more places... I went to a photo store last week to buy a spare part for my tripod and left with a Zhiyun Smooth 4 gimbal, which doesn't accommodate my flip-case. May post video somewhere when I've mastered the gimbal, which is approx. 80 per cent compatible with my 8 in its current Pie state...

    hello users an important announcement from @HMD_Laura

    HMD_Laura said:
    Hi all, 
    also to keep the Nokia 2 users up to date I got information concerning the March SP. 
    There was a one-time issue in rolling out March security update for Nokia 8, Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 2 due to the addition of new test cases and together with Google, we decided to take extra time to review before releasing the update. The four impacted products will receive March security patch in the coming week. 

    Best regards, 
    Laura

    I've just bought a new 8 and wasn't impressed that I had no option but to install Pie as you can't get past it updating during set up without a great deal of trouble. What is involved in going, I can't say back as I wasn't allowed to see it or 7.1, to 8.1?

    In your other post, I gave you a solution to stop it from updating, did you not try it.

    Why have no Face unlock on Nokia 8?
    Because it has absolutely no depth mapping hardware and no infrared illumination for when it is dark.

    You'll have to use the smart lock version if you want it that bad.

    I did try, but it stuck on the software update screen as I had no network I think so I had to let it carry on. But I still thought it would carry on with it in the background and let me install later, like every other phone and tablet I've ever owned, and was sore distressed when it just installed it before I even got a look at 7.1 and a play.
  • My Nokia 8 phone is not ringing out again. It lost all sounds after the last update I did. Please what is responsible and how can I correct it. I tried to reset, but the problem persist.

    @mrbelter I'm not sure that the 3.2, 4.2 and 9PV have infra-red, never mind depth sensing (they definitely don't) so their face unlock software could be just as useless on the Nokia 8 as well.
  • I switched from a lumia 930 and I am very disapointed with my nokia 8 camera, this isnt that great zeiss stuff we ha in the good old days.

    You could buy a camera? Don't buy a hammer to put in a screw.
  • Is the Beta Pie release for Nokia 8 the only pie release or is there a stable release expected?
    I had installed Beta Pie and had to revert due to issues. Now I find that there is no Pie, and i cant go back to beta pie and I am stuck with Oreo. Please .. can we have a RELEASE DATE (NOT a timeframe) for PIE release? Country-wise and Region-wise and Operator-wise.

    Not yet received android pie update for nokia 8
    I would say that this complaint is a bit funny.. you say stuck with Android Oreo as if it was a bad thing. If Android Pie hadn't come out, would you have rebuked Android Oreo?. The Nokia 8 is powered by a Snapdragon 835 which in my review is a flagship processor from QUALCOMM. Whether you're running on the latest software from Google wouldn't matter at all. So just enjoy your smartphone. I'm using a Nokia 7 plus with the latest Android Pie update and I tell you that it doesn't mean that it's better than phones running on Android Oreo. 😂😂 Latest isn't always the greatest... I'll tell you that... Android Pie is just a glorified piece of junk food from Google
  • When will nokia 8 get Android pie update?
    Lol 😅 I don't think it would matter since the Nokia 8 is powered by a  (Snapdragon 835 processor). 
  • Is Nokia 8 getting Android Q in future?

    Absolutely No.Since Nokia 8 came with Android 7.1.1 out of box and last major OS will be the Android 9 Pie as per Two year OS upgrade as promised by HMD. Only successors of Nokia 8 like Nokia 8.1 and Nokia 8 Sirocco can get Android Q update

    user1520881638007 I would say you are correct, but never say never... it depends on how generous HMD are feeling ;)
