Although like you said, details will get lost when it goes to the printer, using a 38/34MP photo will cause the printer to use a higher DPI, therefore having a higher quality output, especially on desktop publishing.
I definitely won't call it a "market trick" because it is real, and that term has negative connotations.
And besides, for those quality-freaks (*ehem* a little) when it comes to photos, a bigger resolution is always better, as long as the sensor can capture a decent photo at that resolution.
This a good alternative for a DSLR. Every DSLR owner would agree that they won't be carrying a DSLR every time they leave their house/studio. So, having this in your pocket as an alternative will ensure that they will have a good camera when a picture-perfect or a good photo opportunity presents itself, this most especially applies to photo enthusiasts. :)

If u look at where technology has come to wher it is today u would see that it has come from big to small. And please nokia picture qaulity has always been the best so dnt u tink that they would improve rather then shooting themself in the foot.
Guest, 08 Apr 2012Is that a typo or is it really a 41 MP Camera?Nope, not a typo. It is really 41. Forty-one.
But that is only the sensor. The actual images are 34 and 38MP.
Is it me or are the Nokia phones specs getting worse
with every new release...Nokia used to be the trendsetter...
Now they are just trying to keep up with models
2 years ago!!!!
I've said for years that I wouldn't buy a digital camera because a phone that could match them would come out soon. Thus I've never owned one. That day could have been here, too bad the resolution is so low, that's the only thing keeping me from buying this phone. I wouldn't mind getting a symbian phone again for the first time in years if it hadn't been for that. The OS is ok afaik, I could live with it a couple of years ago, and I 've heard good things about Belle. There are plenty of hacks and the custom rom scene is pretty active. Symbian will fly on that hardware, and if the camera is as good as promised, this could be a great phone.

can't wait for my 808!!!!
u know y android has a better gpu cuz it lags and freezes a lot try the previous androids works like junk. U just cnt get over with it cuz ur puny android dsnt hve 41mp usb on the go and hdmi all in 1.. By the way symbian dsnt need a pwerful procesor it runs smoothly and simple

Of course I understand that we talk about the sensor resolution, considering 41 MP. And I should correct myself, I was not right. Generally the capturing carrier (either photographic film or CCD / CMOS sensor) should have resolution higher or at least equal to that of the lens. So anyway 41MP is better than 3MP. It is obvious - the same object may be represented in more details, and we obtain a better final product. But still, the lens in mobile can never compete with lenses for film or digital cameras, the general and only purpose of which is photography. The size of the lens determines a lot of parameters influencing the quality of the image, and the smallest it is the more artifacts one will obtain in his picture (like aberrations and defocused image at the corners and margins of a photo). I don't think the photos taken with mobile cameras are expected to be used in desktop publishing and printing of large posters, in which high resolutions are required, while in commonly used printed photo formats the difference between the pictures taken with 41MP, 12MP or 5MP is invisible. The details will be useless, since even printer will lose them. Thus, for mobile phone that huge sensors look just ridiculuous and are nothing else but a market trick. But still I think Nokia did a great job and photos from these class of their phones (like N8) are amazing and may successfully compete with compact digital cameras.
I think that the battery power will be insufficient cox its only 1400 Mah while the features appear powerful.........
I own an N8, I am very happy with Belle. Running Belle on the 808 CPU should make it go like the clappers, plus all the dedicated hardware.. I want one. PS I also own a Samsung Galaxy SII the best thing about it is a decent web browser "Dolphin".. if I could get that on the 808 it would be perfect. I actually use my N8 more than the SII, I find Belle to be very intuitive and it dose the basic thing better .. its a better phone, better at sms, better map software, better camera, better sound quality, better sunlight visibility, better quality build... I can go on listing things for a while.
Nokia 1100, 5230, 5800, n82, n95, n97, n8, n9, lumia 800 and now 808 pure view..... Nokia rocks....

Stop being too demanding. Nokia has made this phone great enough yet you're stil being ungrateful. If you don't want iy, don't buy it then... Huh.. Humans...
ibrahem, 08 Apr 201241mb 1080p@30fps just is this a joke thats rubbishI agree.
41mb 1080p@30fps is just plain rubbish.
One does not simply record a 1080p video as small as 41mb.
gagatov, 08 Apr 2012Wow, the camera specifications look just brilliant. I am curious when should we expect the int... moreJust some clarifications:
It is actually the sensor that captures the 41 megapixels. Lens quality is the first thing that determines how good a camera gathers light details. A good lens that gathers light details very well makes sure that the sensor receives a good image. Check out the sample photos. Judge them yourself.
my question is... Out of all the apps thats on android or mac, which ones do you use? And do you use all of them... at the same time? No? Thats what i thought. Most people choose a phone for one or two particular features. For instance, i love taking pictures(yes i have a dslr but it wont fit in my pocket). Now why would i get a phone that has a lighting speed processor but a 3.15mp camera? 3.15 aint bad, but wouldnt you choose a 12mp(what more 41mp) over a lousy 3.15?.
