Blimey some people are never happy, you sound like a child demanding sweets.
And yet even after they have said it is coming, given the Nokia 8 community a wholly reasonable explanation as to why it has been delayed and you still aren't happy. What more do you want from them, it is clear they have been working on it and a fully reworked app is on the way.
I fully agree the camera needs sorting out and I'll admit i would rather use the default Nokia camera app than having to side load an app someone has created but kicking and screaming on here wont achieve anything, it wont make it appear any faster.
@MrBelter I'm with you. I'm at the point where I wonder if there's any point reading this forum any more. I'm sick to death of people whining over something that none of us have control over. The app could be better, certainly, and HMD have acknowledged that but people still aren't happy. In my view, the camera itself is perfectly fine. There are tons of 3rd part apps available if people want them.
I suspect HMD could have offered everybody a free holiday in the Bahamas, and the replies would have been full of people moaning that the camera isn't good enough to enjoy it properly.
Thankyou for your efforts, it's great to be getting some feedback.
I agree fully with Migs & Guru.
People need to do a bit of research before buying, there are plenty of reviews of the Nokia 8 online. You wouldn't take a new car back and demand a (free) bigger motor because it doesn't go fast enough for you.
Thanks for a nice discussion here and a fair exchange of opinions. Little contribution from my side.
@conqueror: I know that you and so many other users have been waiting for this app patently and I know you all are really longing for this. I don’t have any information on when the release of the camera update is happening, but as Juho said in his tweet it looks good and I guess it is just some fine-tuning left to give you a camera app as good as you want it to have. I’m not involved in the development only thing I can do is reading all your entries and giving your feedback and wishes to people who are responsible. So, all I can ask again is please have a little more patience. It is on our agenda, we are working on it and will soon give you your long-desired update.
What people might forget sometimes is that HMD is now a bit more than one year old. Although working globally, compared to companies like Apple, Samsung and so on we are still quite small and processes are not always as smooth as compared to these companies. This includes making mistakes, might it be in the development, customer support or communication. But we’re learning from those mistakes and try to improve as much as we can, but this also takes time. Thanks to our loyal Nokia Fans out there who give us feedback and help us improve I think we already reached a lot. In return we do our best to offer you an awesome Nokia experience.
Keep the discussions going and have a great day,
Nice to see i am not alone in thinking HMD are doing a good job. I have had my Nokia 8 for 7 months and it has been supported magnificently so far, support for it has been every bit as good as what it was for my Nexus 4 and 5. Best thing is the Nexus 5 had a terrible camera and people were not making silly demands and stomping there feet about it.
As i have said in previous posts my wife's Moto G5 Plus is still on Android 7.0 just like the day it was when it was first turned on and the phone is now a year old, it is the same age as HMD and just look at what HMD have managed in that year where as Moto couldn't even update one of their most popular phones!
Personally, I would rather HMD roll out a fully working Pro Camera app and framework rather than rush it out and have masses of complaints about it not working on here.
@Terminusaquo Absolutely, you have hit the nail right on the head.
