DxOMark

With the possible exception of its Bokeh capability, the Nokia 9 PureView doesn’t deliver either a Photo or Video performance on a par with other current model phones in its premium price range. In particular, the implementation of video seems to be fairly generic, and doesn’t benefit in any way fro...

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 performed poorly and the resulting images didn't quite meet expectations.

- Eric Zeman, Android Authority
PCWorld

The Nokia 9 delivers great performance, a clean design and a camera that’s utterly like no other. However, it falls short when it comes to battery life, and is ultimately as hindered as it is empowered by its powerful photography hardware. The Nokia 9 PureView feels like a great foundation for the n...

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.

As a smartphone, the Nokia 9 Pureview is pretty good for the $599 price range it runs for. It nicely supports voice over WiFi and voice over LTE. The Qi wireless charging support is great. It’s a beautiful phone. Unfortunately, it’s hard to justify the need for five cameras on the back when the imag...

With the possible exception of its Bokeh capability, the Nokia 9 PureView doesn’t deliver either a Photo or Video performance on a par with other current model phones in its premium price range. In particular, the implementation of video seems to be fairly generic, and doesn’t benefit in any way from the multiple cameras or computational imaging capability of technology partner Light.

The Nokia 9 delivers great performance, a clean design and a camera that’s utterly like no other. However, it falls short when it comes to battery life, and is ultimately as hindered as it is empowered by its powerful photography hardware. The Nokia 9 PureView feels like a great foundation for the next generation of Nokia devices, but it doesn’t feel like a foundation I’m rushing to lean on and embrace just yet.

It’s a beautiful phone. Unfortunately, it’s hard to justify the need for five cameras on the back when the image quality is a bit unpredictable and especially when processing the images is so slow.

Disappointing camera

from Notebookcheck

The Nokia 9 PureView does not take full advantage of its innovative quintuple camera design. As a result, it is definitely not among the best smartphone cameras available.

As it stands, the Nokia 9's camera has an edge in dynamics range and can apply a faithful bokeh effect, but that's about it. And if the phone didn't lag behind in many other areas, that might have been enough for us to recommend it. 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 five cameras is an interesting idea and has a lot of promise. But the phone lacks polish. Image processing is unbearably slow and the in-display fingerprint sensor is unusable. I don't know if a faster processor like the newer Snapdragon 855 that's powering new phones would've helped significantly speed up the image processing, but I do know I don't want to see HMD Global abandon the five cameras. It's a fresh idea that might just have been too ahead of its time.

The camera didn't live up to the promise and expectations

The Nokia 9 has the power to shoot great photos, but to get them - you need to make peace with some occasional hiccups and know your RAW file processing to get the stunning results that were promised and shown at launch. But here's the thing - this phone is far from being the only one that can shoot RAW.

For those who use their smartphones as a backup to their DSLR and mirrorless systems

from Gear Hungry

You can expect all the bells and whistles of a mid-range smartphone on the Nokia 9 PureView. From the processor to the GPU and everything else, there’s not much to differentiate the PureView. Its greatest selling point, therefore, is its 5-camera rear shooter.
