Swell camera - I've used it for professional Web work. (Lightroom haze filter is marvelous for clearing up the 808 camera's flare.) A strange thing: no matter what provider's SIM card I use, the 808 always checks voicemail at start-up then asks if I want to listen or exit. If I choose Listen, it tries to call *86 and then says "The number you have dialed is not in service." Do other 808 users experience this? Is it a "feature" of the Alcatel (Mexico) provider that originally sold the phone? Should I install the open source Symbian?

Nokia will be back soon folks. Finally a worthful succesor to my 808PV since I'am sick with HTC M8 already.

Pete, 09 Sep 2016Hi! I'm interested in this phone, of course because of the camera, and because I love Symbian.... moreI'm using Nokia 808 I bought 2016 with delight app. Camera is incredible quality, but slow. Video camera zoom is still just wow! Its also great for navigation in woods and other really fancy stuff, like radio transmitter. You have also offline navigation with offline maps (not new version, but still viable). Phone stays on, like forever, in nowadays standard & with moderate use! It is superb camera, phone, music player (without spotify), navigator, hotspot etc. etc. but not for user who likes to surf web or hang on in social media, for sure.

DragonFire User, 12 Dec 2016How can I buy this mobile in India? Please helpIts available on ebay.in, if not try checking eaby.in once in a week.
just make sure seller has decent feedback.
Also there is chance of getting US charger as most of them are imported.
Man it has best flash for mobiles. ( No mobile except N82 has such bright flash)
the camera takes very good night shots actually but you do need to use the settings for best results eg adjusting the iso etc, when to use the flash and when not to.
i got mine 3 days ago ... it is fantastic ... but not in dark situations
Ordered mine thru eBay. Now waiting shipment from Russia Post to Malaysia. Been wanting to buy a good set both aesthetic and internally good 808 for some time. Hope it will surprise me ...
Definitely yes, It's the best camera phone ever, but don't rely on using it as a smartphone, just multimedia device and calls / WhatsApp
I really miss this forum so much, missing the old days :')
if you have really compared then you could have understood.
Compare them side by side with zooming.
Recent reports proves that recent google pixel is not able to beat 808 in camera.
And samsung dont have great camera pixel.

If You Agree Like Here. No Any System Can Beat Nokia Symbian Mobile System. Please Nokia Developer Can You Release New Mobile With Symbian Powerful Operating System Ever. If Any Person Don't Like Symbian Then He Have No Knowledge About This Symbian Powerful System.

Yes, I have used my 128Gb Class 10 microsd with my Nokia 808 for more than 1 year, I formatted mine in exFat (Extended Fat) so it can accept more than 4gb video files. Everything is working well.
