    Hello Folks. I'm not sure if this is the correct way of posting on the Nokia forums?
    I  received a Nokia 8 a few days ago. I am having issues with a jumping screen. It was doing this before all the updates were installed.
    It will jump from one screen to another without touching the phone. I have done a few factory resets but it has'nt helped.
    On youtube there was one reset that required the phone to be powered off then holding the volume up button while installing the usb. When I tried this version ,I cant power off the phone to begin with.
    Does anyone have any ideas or is the phone faulty and needs to be returned?

    Anybody around here inform me as to when my UK spec Nokia 8 is going to receive the android pie update? This really is dragging out a bit and is getting embarrassing.
