carl, 17 Jul 2012wow! probably my N8 will soon be replaced with Nokia 808. nice gadget, huh?I am going for 808! To those who feel samsung is the best my word to you is simple: KEEP YOUR SAMSUNG AND LET ME KEEP MY NOKIA.
Dee, 18 Jul 2012one thing nokia did not look around and get the reality about the world we live in! no mobile... moreYour post showed that you have inferiority complex problem. People like you are the victims of Bandwagon propaganda - "Every body does it". Cant you have a mind of your own? So you choose and buy a phone because everybody is buying it, even when it doesnt suit your need? You really have a problem fellow!
For crying out loud, what is wrong with Nokia not joining the Bandwagon? They are not interested in Android and have customers who are ok with their Symbian phones. What then is your problem? Is anybody stopping you from buying Android phone? It baffles me the way people criticize things that doesnt concern them. You are here criticizing Nokia 808, yet the phone is selling like fire on daily basis. You can hardly enter a phone shop, see 808, go out and come back to see the phone again. Yes, it happened to me. I knew how i struggled to get mine, the 808 PureView.
Nokia 808 PureView is not a perfect phone and no phone is. Even you that is criticizing is not perfect, how then do you expect what an imperfection created to be perfect? Are you claiming that your Android phones are perfect? That there are no places where the 808 PureView performs better than your Androids? You must be a big time liar if you are claiming your Androids dont have issues or flaws too. You can't get all you want in one device, something must be lacking, so it's human being.
808 PureView maynot be the best phone outhere, but it will be one of the wonderful phone ever manufactured in tis generation. We all knew how good Nokia N91 was then. No Nokia phone has ever replaced it. You stay there and keep whinning for all i care, people that appreciate good things in life are out there scrambling for the 808 PureView.
For those waiting for Windows PureView phone, i bet you, you will never get a Nokia Windows phone that has a big camera sensor as 808 PureView has. Why? Windows phone are slim and Windows phone lovers will like it to remain so. In that case, there is no way a 41 Megapixel camera sensor would fit in a slim phone. So, the Windows phone may end up having only 8 Megapixel PureView camera or a little bit over 8. The logic is quite simply. The truth is, only Nokia Symbian phones can accomodate any form of powerfull hardwares Nokia is known for. Its becoming obvious that 808 PureView will encorage production of more symbian phones and push them into the market, meaning, Symbian is not going as they have mistakenly pronounced. 808 PureView must have changed that. If The Nokia Belle is this good in my 808 PureView, then the Symbian is on another phase of life. But if finally Nokia drops Symbian in 2006 as they said they would do, then i will be proud to have owned one of the best smartphones, with amazing camera and HD 1080p video capability ever produced in this generation, in this life time.
Dee, 18 Jul 2012you don't even know what are talking about! Nokia is heading to bankruptcy...if Nokia that goo... moreYou know, most questions in the world can be answered with "people are stupid". Nokia was on top when they were selling overpriced 3310, and even more overpriced N95, but now when they offer value for money people go for something else because they are told it's "better" and "you need it" and "you're a loser if you don't have it" and "nobody did this before" etc, etc, and especially "it's already a year old, you need a new one with more cores" even though they won't use it properly.
Nokia has many years of reputation as the best phone manufacture.
Nokia's original plan to use Symbian and Meego was actually in the right direction. In fact for many years, we knew Symbian was the driving force for Nokia's succes, sales, and profits. What Symbian needs is only a fast improvements - and they are doing it now with Belle, and perhaps Carla and Donna or "E" something. So did Meego, it was so succesfull when it was launched.
This pictures changed when CEO Elop came, wrote the Burning Platform's Memo about Symbian as a Dead OS (which made many people believed), ditched all Nokia's native OSes of Symbian, Meego, and Meltemi, and planted only WP for Nokia.
Since then Nokia is going down badly - especially with the low sales of Windows phone. In fact Samsung & HTC sold more WP than Nokia.
The real question now is why Nokia has to bow to MS when Samsung can independently use Android, Bada, WP, and Tizen and enjoy success. So does HTC.
In short, Symbian wasn't burning at all. On the contrary it is improving amazingly fast.
Symbian is the mother of all OSes, the most mature and very capable OS, very stable, has true multi tasking, and also user friendly. To put it simply, Belle (maybe Carla & Donna if any) can do what other OSes can do, or better. The only draw back perhaps of less apps (but stil there are about 100.000 apps available for download in Nokia store)
Nokia 808PV is a pure technological breakthrough and a mother of all cameraphone. Therefore it has a class of it's own and also one of the best smartphone in 2012. It can perform all modern smartphone usability. It's awesome - end of story.
haters will always hate ! no body is forcing u to buy it go get any other brand
from a super happy 808 owner !
Gitty, 18 Jul 2012its bcoz nokia is not nokia now, microsoft is controlling nokia ! They stopped selling symbian... moreone thing nokia did not look around and get the reality about the world we live in! no mobile phone using Symbian or meego except nokia, why?

Samsung is fantastic!!! :) I am glad that I own a Samsung. Samsung is the future. They are working so hard to be number one in sales. They will overtake Nokia by next year. Samsung is not lazy, they are working VERY hard. The specs are amazing. 2 GB of Ram, 1.8 GHZ of Dual Core CPU sounds great as well. 12 MP camera(wow)
Samsung: The future is here(slogan invented by me, which should be used)
