> In reply to iSJ5 @ 2012-07-30 04:07 from t7Xh - click to readThis kid, you are suppose to be in school reading your books. Nokia 808 PureView arena is for serious minded adults, not for kids like you who are after games. Seriously, so game is what determines a good phone to you? Are you still breast feeding? Please, if you want a PS3 that make calls, receive calls and text messages, 808 PureView is not for you. You are too young to understand an adult's need. So go and read your books and stop wasting your studies time here.

I already have this phone and I say it is amazing. I know many of android fan boys in this forum will disagree with me. But let me ask you this. What are you doing here if don't like this phone? Are you trying to convince people that already bought this phone and hate it as much as you do? Or are you just plain and simply bashing out this phone and hold up high your own phone?

So what if you have so many phones that is not nokia. You only have two hands and you can use only 2 phones max at a time.

People who bought this, love this and use this as a communication tool. Remember, the basic function of the phone is to stay connected. Games and apps are only secondary or do not count much.

I own both SGS3 and N-808 and I have the best of both worlds. I'm not a nokia fan but I take care of things I own cause I want them to last.

So, whatever phone you own, the most important thing is that your are connected to the people you value in your life.

Camera is amazing, but OS is disappointed!

Everyone knows that Symbian is not as good as Android or Windows phone. Screen resolution is very poor for the world today. Why not putting this camera into the hardware of the N9?

NOKIA 808 PURE VIEW has all practical daily usability that no other phones can offer right now
+ Camera: 41 MP camera, Carl Zeiss optics, Auto focus, Xenon Flash, 1/1.2'' Sensor Size, ND Filter, up to 4x Lossless digital zoom (Quality memories of a life time)
+ Video: 1080p@30fps accompanied by lossless digital zoom, and LED light that give excellent result in low light(Check the you tube videos)
+ Sound: Rich Recording Technology, Dolby Digital Plus (check the youtube videos)
+ NFC, HDMI, USB OTG, DLNA, The best Life time MAP and GPS, Longer battery life, FM Transmitter, Clear Black AMOLED, HTML5, Adobe Flash Lite
+ 1,3 GB Single Processor is capable of running everything in this phone so smoothly
So, all Features and Performance are superb!

SYMBIAN is the mother of all OSes (Belle FP1/Fp2 is the best Symbian now)
Symbian = Better Power management (256 or 512 Mb RAM and 680Mhz Processor are enough to run smoothly)
Symbian = Best battery Life (No other OSes can last 2 days with 1400 mAh battery)
Symbian = True multitasking (it can run more than 10 apps without killing or freezing apps).
Symbian = Most User Friendly & better for multimedia
Symbian = The most mature, stable, and very capable OS.
So, do we really need to kill Symbian now?
Lack of Apps & Games maybe - but there are enough apps & games in the Nokia store. You will always find the advantages & disadvantages in every brand & every phone, because nothing is perfect in a single brand or a single phone. Even we ourself as human are not perfect.
So What else do we ask for? This is why the 808 PV is called a “MASTERPIECE”

This phone is absolutly stunning
for what it is. Its got a 41mp
camera which as shown,gives
incredible shots which opens up a
whole field of opportunity with
avid photographers. Its a phone that can text, call, check emails
and browse facebook. For me,
thats all i ever do on a phone. I
dont play angry birds, because i
have a PS3 at home along with a
gaming rig. Phone games are a waste of time, and when you
consider it, thats really the only
thing that symbian doesnt have.
The iPhone 4s is overpriced, and
although it has a decent OS its
absolutly nothing compared to the 808. Owning an android
myself, i notice i barely ever use
it for anything other then
calling, texting, checking
facebook, browsing the web and
taking photos. Thats what a phone is for, not playing angry
birds while your sitting on the
toilet. The 808 in my opinion
brings everything to the table,
its got Nokias amazing build
quality, its not 2mm thick so its impossible to hold in your hand
(and who buys a phone cause its
"sexy"?) This phone does
everything you want it to do,
and it just works. I for a fact,
am starting to save for this very phone as i love the fact
that you can just be walking
along, listening to music on your
phone, see an interesting sight,
and snap it up, without it being
in a grainy mess of a resolution like most days cellphones. Like i
said, this opens up a world of
opportunitys, and really, if your
buying a phone for games, then
your wasting your money as
their not made for games. I honestly wonder why people
consider the iOS devices "gaming
handhelds" when their not. a
gaming handheld is a device
specidically made for gaming, like
the DS or the Vita, not a phone. The 808 is not a gaming device.
Symbian has very little games.
But what the 808 DOES have,is
Free navigation, a mindblowingly
good camera, great sounding
calling, a good music player, proper social integration with
sites like Facebook and Twitter,
along with a decent browser
(although im told the free Opera
browser is miles ahead of the
stock Symbian one) The 808 is a proper, 'Smart'phone.

hey guys lets all stop and think. By the end of the day we are in this forum because we are phone enthusiasts. Whether you are android , iphone, RIM or some other brand at some point we probably all owned nokia phones. Am a die hard nokia fan and always used nokia but i must admit that the symbian OS however efficient and full of features still has glitches. Take the nokia 500 while still using ana it kept resarting but i still love nokia.!
Anyway we all know when it comes to hardware nokia are the best. Just issues with the OS. This can be seen with this 808 pureview. Awesome camera. Looking at nokia as a company it is going through major changes and with the laying off of many employees and not deciding which OS to use (read they not using meltemi anymore). Am thinking the 808 could be the last truly 'nokia' phone and regardless of which camp you support be it iOS or android lets get this phone! Buy it for its camera totally worth it. If you still not convinced buy it for old times sake as a show of gratitude for that n-series or express music that you once owned!
