Reviews for the Nokia 9 PureView

86.8% Nokia 9 PureView Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
HMD Global went the extra mile with its brand-new Nokia 9 PureView flagship and equipped it with a total of five lenses for the main camera in order to achieve superior image quality. It is not just the camera though, the rest of the device features even more high-end hardware. Find out in our review whether or not the Nokia 9 PureView lives up to its own expectations.
Nokia 9 PureView camera review
Source: DxOMark English
While the Nokia 9 PureView offers an innovative and intriguing multi-camera architecture, and perhaps a glimpse of the future, it isn’t able to use its five-camera rear camera to distinguish itself when used in the default modes that we test, and that are the modes most users stick with. However, it does have a variety of unique capabilities like dedicated black and white sensors, and a multi-image super-resolution mode suitable for extensive post processing. Nokia has also done an excellent job working with Adobe to provide Lightroom Mobile support for the Nokia 9’s unique features. Having depth maps integrated with Google Photos also allows Nokia 9 users to re-focus their images after the fact, which also sets it apart from most other cameras on the market today. Unless you plan to take advantage of its specialized features, though, the PureView 9’s camera isn’t on a par with its competitors.

71% Nokia 9 PureView review: Updates have improved performance, but not enough
Source: Android Authority English
When HMD Global first showed me the Nokia 9 PureView, I instantly fell in love. The phone looks great, feels great, has an excellent display, and covers all the basics in terms of high-end features. You’ll find an attractive metal-and-glass body with plenty of storage, water resistance, wireless charging, and a clean version of Android. These are all good things. I would recommend the Nokia 9 PureView to Nokia fans and photography fanatics with the caveat that the fingerprint reader and camera app aren’t operating at 100% just yet. After HMD Global provides the promised update, we will revisit our review as needed to make the proper adjustments.

At R13 999 (RRP) the Nokia 9 PureView is one the "cheaper" flagships on the market. It's camera setup, battery life and operating system are the clear standout elements here, but I question whether that is enough to compete with the likes of what Samsung and Huawei have been able to muster this year already.

The Nokia 9 PureView is ambitious about mobile photography, and commendably packs five rear cameras that combine shots into a single image. But the resulting photos don't quite outclass those in pricier flagships, and the rest of the phone's features are middling, leaving it more a niche device for consumers who want a less-expensive camera-focused solution.

Nokia 9 PureView hands on review
Source: Techradar English
The new Nokia 9 PureView is a commitment to a single idea: with five lenses taking one HDR photo, you can add the most detail ever to regular photos. With an otherwise respectable, but not impressive list of specs, Nokia is going after mobile photo fans with high-quality photos and software, but will that be enough?

75% Nokia 9 PureView camera review: More isn’t always better
Source: Android Authority English
I can’t say the Nokia 9 PureView has a bad camera. It’s just undeserving of all the hype surrounding it. It does, however, have some cool features you will enjoy, and its shots are not half bad. Regardless, I would rather see Nokia go back to larger sensors, as opposed to multiple.

72% Nokia 9 Pureview Review: 5 cameras, Zeiss lens. Nuff said!
Source: Pocketnow English
It would seem that the big thing about the Nokia 9 Pureview’s multi-camera array is its extremely clean low-noise images. That can be a really great thing. Unfortunately, the camera lacks in other areas such as dynamic range where highlights often get blown out. The LED flash is unusable compared to the Xenon flash of the original Nokia 808 Pureview, Nokia Lumia 1020 Pureview, and even the Nokia N8 from 2010. The depth sensing and fake background blurring filter is better than most of the other phones that try to do this, but it’s still unreliable and unacceptable to anyone who cares about image quality. I would still consider the Nokia 9 worthy of the Pureview moniker due to how little noise there can be in some of the pictures, but I feel like I would have preferred multiple focal length lens/camera combinations.

If you’re someone who is very serious about photography, you’re better off buying a proper camera and editing your photos on your computer. And if you just want to be able to snap great-looking pictures with your phone and like the Android One experience, then a Pixel phone will be a better fit. If the price goes down and Nokia fixes the software issues that are plaguing the phone, it might be worth a consideration, but until then, there’s no objective reason to pick the Nokia 9 over the available alternatives.

The Nokia 9 is full of potential, but the failure to utilize it is evident in every aspect of the phone. We can easily forgive the previous generation of hardware because of that fantastic screen and lower price, but the camera didn't live up to the promise and expectations.

Nokia 9 PureView Hands-on: All the cameras
Source: Mobile Syrup English
The Nokia 9 PureView sports a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, Android 9 Pie and a 3,320mAh battery. I thought the 9 PureView ran pretty quickly, though I didn’t get the chance to truly put it through its paces. That said, its 2018 processor is definitely not on par with phones like the S10 and the LG G8 with their Snapdragon 855 chipset. Additionally, the device runs Android One, a near-stock version of Android used by many of the company’s other handsets. Alongside a 2018 processor the 9 PureView sports wireless charging. The Nokia 9 PureView isn’t the best out there, nor is it the showiest, but it can take a good picture.

Nokia 9 PureView review: HMD Global’s best effort falls frustratingly short (Updated with video)
Source: Android Authority English
The Nokia 9 PureView is a beautiful phone from HMD Global that aims high with its unique imaging features. The five-camera array developed with Light and Zeiss was perhaps too ambitious, as the camera app on our review unit performed poorly and the resulting images didn't quite meet expectations. Practically everything else is great and HMD says the Nokia 9 will only get better over time.

With its design and processor lagging behind the competition, the 9 PureView is likely to stand or fall based on whether or not the photo output lives up to Nokia’s hype. If it does, this could be a popular choice for phone photographers, but if it can’t stand out then this will feel like little more than a relic of 2018.

The Nokia 9 PureView is a photo machine, no doubt about it, but what else it offers is still to be seen. There have already been a few phones launched in 2019 that have better specifications, such as the S10 and the Mate 20 Pro, but worse still, that's also the case for most of 2018's flagships.

HMD Global said the Nokia 9 PureView will be available in “limited quantities” in our meeting. It won’t have an ongoing manufacturing line, which means there will be a relatively limited number available. HMD Global wouldn’t provide guidance on just how “limited” the Nokia 9 PureView may be. Bottom line, if this phone interests you — and it should — don’t hesitate to grab one as quickly as you can.

The Nokia 9 Pureview is priced at $699 or roughly around Php 36,400. We’re hoping that the local arm prices this device near this price point (or lower) if or when it reaches our store shelves.

Model: It’s been a long time since Nokia released a camera centric smartphone such as the Nokia 808 PureView or Lumia 1020. While they were very good at being a camera, they were not as good as the competitors at being a phone. At a time of Android and iOS, the 808 PureView and Lumia 1020 had relatively laggy and backwards operating systems. With a change in ownership and Nokia adapting Android in the past few years, the Nokia 9 PureView seems to be a good addition to their lineup. It has the older Qualcomm Snapragon 845 processor with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. The built-in memory can’t be expanded due to the unavailability of a card slot. It has a 5.99-inch P-OLED screen with a resolution of 1.440 x 2.880 pixels. The screen is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The display supports HDR10. The phone is IP67-rated for water and dust protection. It is shipped with the latest Android 9.0.

The main talk about this phone is its 5 main camera setup. This particular setup has been done with close collaboration with Light who are famous for their 16 camera device. Qualcomm made this setup possible by configuring and optimizing their processor to be able to handle all 5 cameras simultaneously. All the five cameras capture images in 12 MP resolution. Three of the cameras capture images in monochrome and the other two capture in RGB. One of it is a Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera. Having more cameras allows the phone to capture images with different settings to highlight different details of the images. With these details, shadows, lighting and other intricate specifications of a photo can be captured accurately and stitched together as one photo. In theory, it should give lots of details in any kind of scene. According to them, Nokia is also working with Adobe Lightroom for the DNG RAW file processing. With this, images can be edited on the device before it is shared to other devices or social media. All five cameras capture up to 60 megapixels of details. There might be no portrait mode but since the cameras capture images with over 1,200 layers, users can choose which points to focus on and blur the rest. This also allows for refocus and zoom functions. The cameras also shoot video at 4k resolution but that is of course not its main attraction.

The 9 PureView might have impressive camera specs, but only time and users can confirm on its real world usage. As of now, only a few reviewers have tested the phone camera and some are a bit sceptical of its capabilities. On the front is a single 20 MP camera for selfies and the phone only comes in one color – Midnight Blue. Despite being built using last year’s processor, the Nokia 9 PureView has a in-display fingerprint sensor and Bluetooth 5.0. It has a 3,320 mAh battery, which supports Quickcharge 3.0 via its USB Type-C charging port.
