Carl Zeiss lenses have consistantly topped every other smartphone camera. N95, N86 wide angle, N8 and so on.

And Nokia has Clear Black technology, which is different to what other manufacturers use. Take a look at a Nokia phone one day, you'll notice.

pure motion hd + ?? what the f i that nokia is late to the party as usually. so it makes up a fancy name ot hide the fact that it'susing last years super lcd tech while others are usig super lcd 2 and super lcd 3.
also the carl zeis lens is just a gimmick. at that lens size the maker of the lens wont matter. if yo ugo into the realm of large diameter lenses then you can expect to get distorsions and color aberations. for the lenses used in phone, about 2 mm diameter, theres no point in using carl zeis. acually it's not even made by carl zeis, it's under licence made in china.

It does not take any effort
or work on the part of a fish to go with the flow and drift downstream. Even
a dead fish can float.

Maybe the spell checker could come in handy for you Gonex, Nokia's predictive text and spelling correction is second to none.

Honestly, Apple maps look better than any other map package. Some people say they are not accurate, for me, they have been perfect for the few times I have needed them.

How can Nokia compete with Google? How many cars they have? I've recently seen Google Street View car tracking roads in a 10.000-people city. And Nokia is missing the imagery even in big cities.

When I compare Google and Nokia satellite imagery, Nokia's coverage looks like a joke. NYC? -OK. London? -OK. But look at other European countries and cities and you'll see how much behind Nokia is.
