> In reply to N8 user @ 2012-07-10 23:06 from Ehn@ - click to readCome one, man. U really believe what people say? Can you compare a 38mp(effective resolution) with 12? That's just absurd. If you want a better camera in a smart than the n8 has, 808 is the only option. And believe me, people saying that n8 is like 808 in picture quality are ret*rd. Or they don't even own any of these phones, or they are just st&&upid and don't know how to take a shot. I own a n8 and i'm proud of it. But this beauty here won't mind me at all:D. Just that i'm to short in money to buy it now, hopefully later.

Im using N8 for one and half years and I waited for 808 to get released and finally its available in the market. Im lit bit confused after reading some reviews and comments here and comparison between N8 and 808 photos and some adviced to stay with N8 and not to upgrade. I waited so long and now im stepping back a bit, please advice me whether its wort to go for 33000 INR or to stay with my N8, my main purpose is for multimedia only.

Thanks 'Anonymous, Caravan Senor, Gitty, MobileStrongBOX' for your valuable response.
But I am sold for.... Wait 4 It....
Nokia 808's Monster Camera.
concept of such phones is the fact that you no longer need a big SLR with you for every ocassional click.
a little phone in ur pocket is enough.
well for a sweet girl like me, 808 fits perfect in hands.
i used Note in a store and its really big for my hand. i am unable to use it single handedly.
so bought 808 yesterday. white one.
i love to click whatever looks interesting to me.
i use phone for web browsing, emails, little music & calling & sms.
sorry, but i am definitely not crazy for time wasting apps or games on a phone.
Nokia 808 is performing all those task flawlessly.
i dont care if its a Symbian or Android. usabilty is what i like in a phone.
about 808, its blazing fast, great sound quality, good build quality and Greatest camera on a phone.
i already entered some pics clicked by me using 808 for a competition and they are already through the 1st round.
i am using 5 mp pureview mode. awesome quality.
fine details in dark area too, true colors, low noise, amazing low light performance.
i am loving it.

Hi all,

Thank you very much for your support and comments about Nokia 808.

I bought nokia 808 pureview 2 days back - complete black color skin. Some of the things I have gone through with the device.

1.As far resolution it is good at 360 x 640 pixels
(184 ppi pixel density). Under sunlight -display is great - rating - 4/5

2.The new Symbian OS which is smooth and wont struck at any point of time. - rating - 4/5

3. Then apps , there are enough apps which are available in the device itself, apart from that you can download from nokia store..

I heard some people mentioned that there is not much apps present in the nokia store.

But it is wrong, the nokia store is neat and there are lot of apps present in the store, if needed at low cost.

I m not comparing google play or apple store.

4. Processing for browsing it is little bit slow.
But it is compromised.- rating - 3/5

5. No other words to say about the camera - rating - 5/5

Above all it is not a camera smartphone but its a nice Multimedia & Social Network Smartphone device with all of its function in one unit.

If any other query about Nokia 808 me

Thanks to nokia and gsmarena....

Vodacom South Africa anouced the Nokia 808pureview at Vodashop at R7999 (+-$900) with no contract.With a contract you will have to pay R399 (+-$47) per month for 24 months all you get is 250mb of data and 20weekend min per month for the contract period.

Resolution : 360 x 640

It blows my mind away. Who pays for $600 this, unless you are no brainer.
