Anonymous, 23 Oct 2012camera way better? tell that to the average users who only notices small difference? wanna see... moreOh please ...s3 better than pureview 808... S3 sucks...with its crapdroid..i love symbian and meego which are the true oses...android is always laggy and buggy...my brother had got sony xperia ion . And it sucks. Even with a dual core , android was lagging....and some games and apps were too lagging( trinity warriors 2 ,this game never ran perfectly on sola but after the update it ran perfectly). Battery life is complete shit....what i mean to say is android sux.... But symbian belle and meego are so efficient and smooth oses ... They are able to run smoothly even with a slow and single core processor... Nokia phones r known for good battery life and excellent built quality.... And who the hell want hd games on smartphone...go buy ps3 if u want them...and pureview is the best cameraphone its not a dslr...if you dont like symbian just because it has less apps then you can wait for nokia lumia 920 or the next meego based jolla phone. .. Crapdroid sux... Nokia rocks ....
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2012did i forget to mention that the S3 still gets updates? and for 2 or 3 years to come? 808 PV i... morelol !!! Android user claiming to have better battery life than symbian....based on some tests !!! best of luck dude.i have nothing to argue !!! :D
and regarding using DSLR...i am pro photographer & i have mark-III !!! thats the reason i know what quality this phone can produce.
regarding the update part i agree....but i dnt agree to the part its a 'dead' phone !!! if its good then i guess people can use it...the term "dead" is really wrong :)
and regarding music 1st u said,its up to personal taste & then u said 'experts' will chose S3 !!! :O let me know those experts if u can !!! ;D
and BTW,my brother uses S3 & i have nothing against it.its just that u tried to compare 808 with S3 thats y i told u few points against it...personally i have been using androids since 2.1 till my last galaxy note with ICS,so m experienced Android user too.
and no matter wht gsm arenas battery tests says,i have both & m telling u the real life story...i can assure u on 808 i can watch 2 full movies back to back with some battery still left !!! but with s3 i cant.

nokia has HD games? how many though? 1? 2? crappy ones like ping-pong HD?
i didnt say 808 has a bad screen, but the S3 does have a better screen go ask the experts or google it yourself or let people see it side by side.
yes s3 is lighter and easier to hold, and build quality is different for everyone, theres really no such thing as "my plastic is better than yours"
and thanks for mentioning battery life, since the battery endurance test 808 pureview gotten 34 HOURS TOTAL... while S3 gotten 43 HOURS LOL... thats almost 10 hours difference ROFL
ok i didnt see the NFC part
what multi tasking features does nokia pureview got that s3 cant do? cause i can name a few from the S3 that the 808 cant do
yes actually S3 has faster speed in internet browsing, no need to race but boy i dont wanna have a slow laggy browser that acts like its on dial up just to load pages.
well for music, could be personal choice, but the expert would chose samsung S3
hmmm watch 2 full movies on S3? i dont think any phone can do it without battery going to 0. How can 808 PV run 2 movies when its video playback test is less than S3? nice try.
I have an S3 and i can pretty much install 95% of android apps... but hey atleast android has apps right?
so now LETS CHOSE AGAIN?

not better but wayy way wayyyy better camera(u better dont compare with any camera phones they are no way near)
HD games ???even 808 has HD games.so whats new there ???
beautiful screen ??? just because 808 screen doesnt show some 'X' numbers regarding PPI comparison...doesnt mean 808 has bad screen !!!
light and great build quality with S3!!! :O light - OK,agree !!! but build quality !!! :D :D :D :D :D
808 has premium build quality,any ways u light weight cheap plastic phone users wont understand !!! :P
u missed one very imp point regarding "BATTERY" life !!! do i need to mention how long an Android phone works ??? 1-1.5 day max !!! :P :P :D :D
808 easily goes about 2 to 2.5/3days with light to modr8 multimedia use :)
NFC ???? 808 has it,dont u know ??? :)
multi tasking ??? obviously 808 can do that too :)
fast browsing ??? 808s native browser is good enough for me...do u race with lightning fast browser ??? how many browsers u have beaten ??? what price did they gave u !!! :P ;D
reagarding music & video i would say thats personal choice i love my 808s dolby digital plus !!! just one question though,can u watch 2 full movies on Android ??? well !!! i can !!! :D :D :D :D
so now the actual situation is -
for 808 users : read above.
for Android user : I ONLY HAVE TONS OF APPS FROM WHICH...I CANT EVEN INSTALL HALF OF THEM & EVEN IF I MANAGED TO INSTALL SOME BUT THEN I CANT EVEN USE THEM PROPERLY COZ,MY PHONE DIES IN JUST 5-6 HOURS IF I TRY TO ENJOY THEM !!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
* * * now "YOU" decide !!!! * * *
this phone could become a real game changer if it just have:
-waterproof, for underwater image capturing
-1800mAh+ battery, for more image capturing
-shatterproof/dustproof, for protection
but w/out those that I mention, I'm still hoping I would have this as my christmas gift. :)

Purevie... moreS3 users...

my phone has better camera...
okay everyone, you chose.
it is very easy to use. specialy girls can use it very proudly. it has a nice look...... east or west nokia 808 is best
Camera Clarity Superb
No other phone can beat this
Pitty on Samsung Galaxy
1. Is joikuspot the only way to setup nokia 808 as a wifi hotspot and use ainol tab on the same internet connection ? ( i dont want to buy a dongle,and i have read that joikuspot premium/2012 is clunky, difficult to setup, heats up the phone, has only WEP security, lite version doesnot allow https sites like facebook and twitter etc, and is expensive ) are there any free softwares like android/iOS systems have ?
2. Is it even possible to connect android and symbian smoothly ? (i read about android not connecting to Ad-hoc hotspot, the only kind which symbian nokia provides)
Guyzz.....dont waste ur money on galaxy S |||
go for NOKIA...the best value for money
LOVE U NOKIA...
Nokia is generally known for it best camera phones...Nokia proved themselves again...
Pureview 808 is the awesomest phone i've ever seen in my life...rather than a powerful camera it got sexy looks and an easy to use operating system i.e. SYMBIAN BELLE...I own this phone and i just simply love it...m a NOKIA user since i started using cellphones...
the successor of beautiful N8, it blows ur mind with a feeling of awesomeness......friends please don't waste ur money on Samsung (Galaxy S III)or HTC (one X or V).
If u want a good value for ur money, then Pureview 808 is a perfect match for u.....
Mohan, 22 Oct 2012Im using the phone for past 4-5 month i feel this Phone is 1 of the best phone Nokia have Made... moreMohan, hotspot is available on this phone using Joikuspot. The camera does have a 41MP sensor and if you want you can shoot up to a 38MP full pic of you want. Default setting is 5MP using the 41MP to oversample and eliminate noise. It does an amazing job at this. Best camera in a phone bar none.
Im using the phone for past 4-5 month i feel this Phone is 1 of the best phone Nokia have Made but not the best among all the Phone's .. i feel ( HOT SPOT ) is Missing in this Phone any ( Display DPI ) its 5MP camera sensor its not real 41 MP sensor , am not a nokia fan , but after getting this for 33k . now i feel i have a better model phone . i droped it from 2nd floor and noting happened every thing is fine. . This phone is Fit for ppl who use Camera more and ppl who dono much about phone .will feel its great :P
