Trouble with Bluetooth

I am having trouble using Bluetooth.  I have been using Nokia phones for many years and know how they work.  I have the Nokia 8 and it works fine for the most part.  I am moving on from my Lumia 950.  I will just say that the 950 camera is hard to beat or even come close to.

Back to Bluetooth----All my other phones pair and connect to my Bluetooth devices except my Nokia 8.  I use a lot of Bluetooth devices and am forced to use a different phone to be able to use my  Bluetooth devices.

Is there some kind of different Bluetooth on the Nokia 8 since it is new or am I doing something wrong????

When in discovery mode, it would be discovered by my headsets, car Bluetooth, external speakers and so one.

Any ideas please?????

No issues with basic Bluetooth with Nokia 8. I am able to connect to different devices and no problems.

Try a factory reset. If still doesn't work, probably your phone has a bad bluetooth radio..

I also have problems with Bluetooth since the 8.1 update. Sound doesn't come through in my car radio, I repaired it, but that didn't make a difference. 

Try to reset Network Settings. Some common problem fixes for Android 8.1 are on the following website:

Oreo 8.1 seems to have resolved all of the issues u had with Bluetooth, awesome job Nokia, no more drop outs. As to your problem, make sure your Bluetooth device is in pairing mode otherwise your Nokia 8 won't be able to see it to pair with it.
