Just printed a 50x70 image taken with automatic mode 5mp ! Oh my Sweet GOD amazing clarity at a huge size for only a 5 mpx image ! even the print man @Kodak couldn't believe it !! :D :D
Yes, you will definitely find that Dolby Digital Plus works on your stereo Bluetooth headset. I use a Nokia 505 headset and it's awesome! Best of all, is the 505 and PureView link up via NFC so pairing is never an issue.
The app marketplace is sorely lacking for the Nokia 808 PureView and I feel sad about that cause this is an amazing device and it would help a great deal to further the market if there were more apps around.
That said, there are also a few bugs I've faced over the last month or so. The phone hangs at the oddest moments. Sometimes, even when I'm not doing anything on it and it requires me to pull out the battery to restart it. Frustrating, yes.. But it's rare and the phone makes up for it in other areas.
Another drawback I've noticed, is that WiFi is a bit buggy. Sometimes, it won't connect to my accesspoint. I logged a complaint with Nokia and they've confirmed that it is an issue with some routers and the next firmware update will resolve this issue.
Everything else about this phone is amazing. Symbian moves smoothly on the 1.3 GHz CPU and it is NEVER laggy! Whoever said HD applications don't work on the 808 is kidding. Apps run like a charm and there's virtually no loading time even for Full HD games and resource hungry apps.
The camera blew my mind away the first time I used it, and I'm always amazed at the detail and the vivid colors that the phone takes. It's really hard to take a bad picture with this device!
On a similar note, Symbian by design, cannot use a screen larger than 320x640. So the screen resolution is not awesome. However, the PureView chip does a beautiful job of rendering the screen and even fully blown up images look great on the phone. Mind you, even though the pics look great on the phone screen, once you send the pics and videos to your TV or computer, you REALLY get to see the wonderful work that your camera has accomplished.
There are pros and cons in every phone, and with PureView, there are a good number of both. But in the end, I think the Pro's outweigh the cons by miles.
If you're thinking of going for this device and are willing to shell out the cash for it, trust me, it's worth every penny! I'm very very happy with my purchase.
Nokia 808, according to many Android and Iphone fans is a old system, which runs on mere single core processor with nothing new but 41 mpix camera which is also being condemned by many. I thought why not give Android (Samsung) and iphone fans a ride of Nokia 808 and make them understand what it is.
First, I will talk about negative points. In the world where companies are rolling out systems with quad core and higher clock speed, Nokia is stuck with single core 1.3 ghz.
Second, its a very old boring Symbian OS with tint of Belle fp1.
Third, lack of softwares and games. Nokia 808 cant even dream of playing HD games.
Thats what everyone says when we talk of Nokia or Nokia 808.What I found is shocking and pleasantly surprising.
First, though Nokia 808 is single core it never lags in any application. If is so smooth and so stable.
Second, it has a highest screen contrast compared to any phone in the world. Amoled screen on Nokia 808 is amazingly bright and pureview technology provides most accurate and pleasing colours.
Third, it plays videos in most available formats in the world today. It plays HD as if this phone is made for HD video playback.
Fourth, it has one of the best sound system in form of Dolby Digital Plus available and plays audio better than any other smartphone.
Fifth, its connectivity is amazing. My Galaxy note has 21 mbps 3.5G capability but is cant compete with my 14.4 mbps able Nokia 808.
Sixth, wifi connectivity is amazingly fast too. Better than my Galaxy Note.
Seventh, its built quality is of highest standard and better than any other smartphone available today. If you compare Nokia 808 with Galaxy S3, its like comparing Hulk with Barbie or Snow White. Hilariously true isnt it.
Eight, in case of Symbian OS it has a largest screen available on market today.
Ninth, it has one of the longest battery life when compared to Android or Iphone smartphones today.
Tenth, last but not least Nokia 808 has a best camera available in any smartphone in the world.
Price of Nokia 808 has been tagged between USD 550 to USD 800 depending on the region. But the truth is its not expensive even if is would have been priced at USD 1,000. I know many will not believe but you have to use Nokia 808 to believe it.
I dont want to say Android or Iphone are not the best as its a matter of personal choice. Even though I own Galaxy Note I can without any doubt claim Nokia 808 as winner.
does it have multiple marking option on gallery, and also at the messages.

I have recently bought 808 and I have observed few things after using it for a while.
1.The audio (voice) quality of the other person on the call seems to be blunt which is making it difficult for me to understand what the other pserson is saying.
2.After a pic is taken and when is saved to the gallery, and when you go back to review the pics, and when you try to zoom the pic, it shows you the zoon of the previous pic taken, and when you zoom out it will show yot the actual pic. Seems like a bug.
3.Some times the phone hangs after taking a pic and even a pronged press on the "red" button will not restart the phone. You will have to remove the battery and then put it back.
4.The phone seems to slow down as we install more apps and take more pics (due to memory).
I have few more doubts which I will come up in my next post.
Navi, 13 Aug 2012Yes.. The Exit key is not available for the camera. you just need to use the Red(end call) but... moreThank you for responding with my question not like others answering in a sarcastic way...
angellite, 01 Aug 2012No exit Key after using CAMERA?
Gallery has no option to select multiple???
PLEASE CONFIRMYes.. The Exit key is not available for the camera. you just need to use the Red(end call) button for this..
The main problem however is the mark all/Mark multiple option which is not available in the gallery. Guess a bug has to be raised for this..
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2012I need an honest comparison between S3 & 808 pureview. can anyone do this?
galaxy s3 over pureview 808:
*quad core processor, faster
*800x1280 pixel diplay (306 ppi)
Pureview over galaxy s3:
*41 mp camera
*best video recording quality, no quality loose when zoomed.
SriraM appu, 13 Aug 2012It will be great if android pureview comes from Nokiait is not possible because android can not support 41mp camera and needs quard core or more advanced processor and minimum 1gb ram with 6000mAh battery to operate the os. That will increase the cost and size of device. Thus its nokia belle which is capable to operate this device very economically with 512mb ram, 1.3gh processor and only 1400mAh battery and with much better battery backup.
Lion is always King and monkey, donkey may become leader when lion is sleeping but they will become invisble when King will back in form. So wait for a while when nokia will regain the market share with window phone 8.
