> In reply to error @ 2012-10-05 10:26 from P@1G - click to readNokia 808 would win for sure, its sensor has twice the physical size of Galaxy camera, Carl Zeiss lenses are by far better than Samsung lenses, Pureview tech allows noise-free images in low light and relatively small file size, it is a lot more compact etc... Someone could get amazed by the 21x optical zoom, but that's only marketing cause at full zoom the aperture will be dramatically small and that tiny sensor will hardly capture any photons...

The 808 is a whole new innovation but this, fujifilm had this before so sorry no go.

Even samsung married a washing machine powered by droid the fans will always say the same thing over and over.

This is NOT a phone. How can it be a phone, when it has no mics and no GSM for voice communication? 3G is there just for data transfer, like in tablets or 3G modems, that doesn't make them phones.

Point-lag&-shoot.
Nice.

Only at 1GHz quad-core must be a concern though.

I'm sure android fans that hate the Nokia 808 pureview will say this is very portable and a brillant idea.
