    Can't agree with you here. Neither the old or the new Nokia has never released a flagship and the history of Nokia on Microsoft devices can't be counted to their advantage on Android. Neither company has much built up in the way of history yet, with Google having only released 1 flagship lineup and HMD having released 0 so far. Really is a big question mark, impossible to draw any conclusions in Nokia's favor until there's actually something to see.
    Never released a flagship? Lol. Why just because they never released one on Android...they didn't count?

    Sorry, I misspoke. The new company has never released a flagship and the old company never did on Android. But also sure, I'd be willing to state that Windows devices don't count. As an OS though, not on cameras.

    We will have to wait it out and see! I still tend to think the camera on the Nokia Flagships are going to wipe the pixel by miles. Google is relying on software primarily to take good pics . Nokias hardware and software both which is also going to be by Carl Zeiss is going to be a win win situation for sure

    Nah, night and day difference. iOS is by far the second most popular OS globally and every device they've ever released except for the SE and the 5C has been a flagship. And I'm not saying "because it's not Android", I'm joking that Windows, as a phone OS, is one of the most irrelevant things in the smart things world right now.

    Of course Windows on mobile is irrelevant now but when old Nokia was at it's prime they were producing plenty flagships, and iOS was only the 3rd most popular OS here in Europe behind Android and WP respectively.
    Whatever happens I want them to do well and I'll hang off buying the 8 until I see if it has everything or at least most features I need, it performs well and the camera in particular and finally I'll wait to see if the 9 arrives shortly after in case it's better then at least the 8 will have come down in price by then too

    Yep I agree that Nokia used to be awesome; but since this is a new company with some familiar faces, that leaves a lot of question marks out there. Hopefully the 8 is as good as everyone is hoping.

    All I'm hoping is that Nokia can fill the void that Nexus has left.

    All I want is a phone that has regular software and security updates and is cheaper than a flagship.

    I think in terms of just the camera alone will blow Google out of the water
    I recall hearing that they won't be using the same pureview tech that the Lumias had, since that tech was exclusive to MS. Not sure how much of a difference that would make. Or whether it's true for that matter.

    I do hope the cameras are going to be awesome, because that's one thing that I miss a LOT coming from a 950XL and going to an iPhone 6S plus. Looking forward to my third mobile OS in one year..
