Finder score: 3.5 How we score our reviews

We're at a stage in smartphone development where most manufacturers don't really take risks. New phones are largely iterative, and while the technology improves in small steps, there's not really much in the way of genuinely new and risky ideas out there.

Without a doubt, the Nokia 9 Pureview is HMD Global's most interesting phone to date. Interesting, however, doesn't lead to a phone that will necessarily appeal to every single buyer.


Design

  • Business the front, Beholder at the back.
  • Blue colour only.
  • In-glass fingerprint sensor is just plain awful.
  • No headphone jack.

Camera

  • Three primary RGB lenses.
  • Two monochrome lenses.
  • Capable of some amazing photos... with patience.
  • Less flexible than competing options.
  • A camera for the pros, not the everyday shooter.

Performance

  • Snapdragon 845 is powerful, but not up to current premium smartphone standards.
  • Android One promises plenty of updates.
  • 128GB of fixed storage only.

Battery

  • 3,320mAh battery offers mediocre performance.
  • Android One might improve battery life.
  • Fast wired charging.

Verdict

  • A truly different smartphone, but not one for everybody.

Pricing and availability

  • Price: RRP $1,099
