    Those are not officially imported. If you look closely at the sellers those are just phone importers selling at an inflated price. None of them are sold by Amazon.

    You should note that this is not from Amazon directly but rather from 3rd party seller on Amazon.

  • Captain Pokemon

    My only concern on buying from third party seller is the warranty.

    wont work on freedom mobile btw

    Dat price tho. I just bought a Mate 9 from Amazon US and it came out to be just a smidge under $600 CAD. Over $900 is crazy town.

    Sold by Kiletrading. Feedback shows cases where customers were charged for duties/customs.

  • samsvoc

    Looks like no band 12/17, so very limited LTE (700mhz) use on Roger’s.

      No surprise there. This Amazon Canada sold device is the Dual SIM European variant.
      Only one HMD device has received ISED certification & that is the 3310-3G.

    • dirtyKIMCHI

      And as of September 22nd, the Nokia 2 (model TA-1035, dual SIM [Certification # 23070-TA1035]) & Nokia 6 (model TA-1025, dual SIM [Certification # 23070-TA1025]) now have ISED approval as well.

    Small non removable battery AND no water resistance, So, I guess it is all about building obsolescence into these phones. All for the paltry sum of CDN$ 929.99

      Not Nokia’s fault there when it’s a gray market importer charging double of what Nokia is charging in Europe.

      If those combined features are really important to you, Kijiji might offer up a Galaxy S5 with both a removable battery and IP67. Would probably perform as well as a Nokia 8 for you and a lot less than CDN$ 929.99.

      Should do you well, as you’ve said before that phone features don’t improve much in 10 years or so. You’d never have to worry about built-in obsolescence ever again.

      Again demonstrating a lack of reading and comprehension abilities. You may have forgotten that I have 2 note 4’s and that’s right, my phone can do about 90% of what your disposable Huawei P10 Plus can do, and in 10 years, your p10 plus would still be able to do what it does now, and not much will change. Except that it won’t because it will have long been tossed in the garbage because you can’t replace the battery and if you’re going to make claims about what I said, then be accurate, I made the “10 year” statement about modern phones like the latest Note 8, and Iphone etc. Remember? I even listed your phone. But I remember, you don’t let facts and science distract you from your corporate narrative.

      Except that the Huawei P10+ has a great repair score and probably has the easiest battery to replace without the need of hot plates or heat gun trying to remove assembly adhesive or losing any great water resistance which it doesn’t have. You should check out some of the repair videos.

      The industry has gone beyond consumer replaceable batteries and their necessary space consuming protective cases and you can’t go back.

    • Do Do

      If that’s true, that should move it to the top of the flagship list except that you still can’t buy OEM batteries unless you’re an authorized repair location, right?

      “The industry has gone beyond consumer replaceable batteries and their necessary space consuming protective cases and you can’t go back.”

      That’s one opinion, We’ll see, the fight for consumers isn’t over.

    • h2oflyer

      You are right about consumers buying replacement batteries, but a black market will always exist.

      Consumer replaceable batteries were eliminated for cost and space reasons. After the Note7 debacle and world wide regulatory agencies now involved, I doubt if user replaceable lith-ion phone batteries are ever available.

    • Do Do

      So you know, I just watched a video on the “plus” teardown, the beginning clearly shows a hotplate being used. Still, it does look easier than some other phones but hardly what I’d call “easy” as long as you have to use heat gun/plates.

    • h2oflyer

      A 60°c warming plate to soften the IPX3 splash resistance sealant doesn’t qualify as heat gun/hot plate.There is no gobs of assembly adhesive.

      The regular P10 which doesn’t have any water resistance is a snap apart disassembly and doesn’t require any heat.

      Both phones look like they disassemble easy because of good design and of course no or limited water resistance.

      “Consumer replaceable batteries were eliminated for cost and space reasons. After the Note7 debacle and world wide regulatory agencies now involved”

      Would seem to me that if that were the case then it would be a law across the board, which it isn’t as there’s still plenty of phones with replaceable batteries, just not the flagships, as far as I’m aware.

    If HMD wants NOKIA back in cellphone ruling world, they need to do better than relying on Amazon or other online services. I understand most Canadian carriers won’t be keeping it in their store as Nokia hasn’t been around and their popularity isn’t as good as Samsung & Apple.

    • ToniCipriani ✓pǝᴉɟᴉɹǝʌ

      They’re not relying on Amazon. It’s not even Nokia selling this, it’s not official, Nokia has no intention of selling it here at the moment.

    • Sanjay Kumar

      Thank you for enlightening me about it.
      But that’s the whole point, Canadian market has been spoiled by companies like Apple and Samsung which uses also their official stores apart from carriers so consumers can get hold of products easily.

    • h2oflyer

      Agreed…Sony could’ve been a player but they closed their stores about the time of the Z3 and stopped product innovation.

  • Smanny

    You guys should look up current prices for the LG G6 before saying things like the Nokia 8 is cheaper by $70. You can get the LG G6 at Telus for $900, Rogers for $850, and Freedom Mobile for $839.

  • Liquid Snake

    what a junk.

  • kenvin100

    And here I thought Nokia was trying to make a comeback. It’ll be short lived at this rate…
