Hence this very thread! I'm leaning towards the Nokia 8, can get the 128gb version for 290.

Had the Nokia 6, for 2 weeks when my Nexus 5X fucked up. I know it's the weaker hardware, but was so thoroughly unimpressed with it, it finally pushed me towards the Pixel 2 which I had been thinking about for 4 months. The Pixel 2 price put me off, but the Nokia 6 experience was truly miserable.

Am a bit militant when it comes to Android, the best UX I've generally had is from Google hardware.

I think the Nokia 8 has completely unmolested android.

To be fair, I think 8 is actually a decent phone. The 6 though is just woefully underpowered and it hurts usage.

I have the pixel 2 xl. While the price is high the photos are gorgeous. I don't own a proper camera so rely on the phone for all my snaps so I was willing to spend a bit more but its performance at night, close up etc. continues to amaze me like 6 months on.

Only gripe is with the ridiculous headphones dongle which seems flimsy and error prone. Apart from that it's very slick for day to day use.

I've decided on the Oneplus 6 - mainly as I was fed up of looking.

Went for the Matt Black 8GB + 128GB one, was worried about fingerprint marks on the shiny one.

I have emailed insurance company anyway, so hopefully all is good and what the bloke told me on the phone yesterday was correct and they actually buy me the right version

I think you made a good choice there Neddage. I went to a few shops this lunchtime and had a play with the phones I was most interested in:

Nokia 7 plus is nice, but it does look and feel much bigger than the Nokia 8 though even though there's not much in it, the camera isn't flush with the case, colour scheme is *interesting*

Nokia 8 was very nice, liked the aluminium case and it really does seem a bargain for the price

Honor 10 was a bit disappointing as i expected to be blown away by the case due to the reviews but to me it felt cheap, it's glass but felt like plastic. Beautiful screen though.

Samsung A8 was very nice, seemed a bit slimmer than the other handsets, but only 32gb storage and expesnive compared to the Nokias.

The OnePlus 6 wasn't even on my list but I had a play in the O2 shop and absolutely loved it! Not sure why but it just felt fantastic and the camera was brilliant on the small play i had with it. I'm now rethinking my budget...

Just picked up a 12.95 Alba phone until the new one arrives. Whooping 32MB of memory, dual sim, torch, camera, bluetooth and 10 days battery life on standby.

They should have named it "Alba Drug Dealer Edition"

Asus have just announced a ROG phone, not sure about a gaming phone?

And now i'm not, having discovered the matt version is only available in the more expensive versions. I can't go to 520. Bugger.

I love my P10 Lite. My next phone will be a Huawei.

Then again, by the time I get around to getting one, everyone will have Facebook brain implants instead of phones.

I went for the Nokia 7 Plus in the end. It arrived yesterday and I'm very happy with it, it seems like a nice bit of kit and a HUGE upgrade over my old phone.
