The Nokia 808 was the perfect smartphone, except perhaps its browsing speed. I miss the days when people would take nature shots and take the time to edit them and upload them to a proper website. Phones nowadays are nothing but glorified web browsers and ego stroking instagram machines.
I actually don't mind a bump. If the camera is as good as these were.
I had the lumia 1020. It was such a good phone. Camera is still better than any modern phones today
Should mention Sony and 23MP smartphone cameras, but pretty good article.
Should've made a mention to HTC One (M7) and how they went backwards on the trend of the megapixel race. That instead of getting more pixels/quantity, they went for better pixels/quality.
Whilst the camera really wasn't the best at the time, they proved its a game of balance and compromises. There's a reason the HTC U11 is known as the phone with the best camera.
Nice Article. I hope the guys at HMD/Nokia will make a one-off tribute to the 808 Pureview with another large sensor camera for enthusiasts who don't mind 11-15mm thickness.
I also hope that instead of having a camera bump, they will make the phone uniformly thick and fit in a 7000 mAh battery, since they have the thickness to play around with it.
