The Nokia 8 Sirocco isn’t as big as some phones fea­tured here, with a 5.5in OLED screen that’s bright, vivid and colour­ful. There are twin rear cam­eras with Zeiss op­tics and cute, if gim­micky, ex­tras like the Bothie, where you can shoot a rear cam­era and the front fac­ing one at the same time, so you can snap a per­former at a gig and your re­ac­tion at the same time.
