SBP, 17 Jul 2013Samzoom finally beats my 808 fair and square at the most respected site at AAS. Now I'm trying... more808 images are better if you don't count zoom but yes, 10x is a nice thing to have too. You could carry it in a belt case, that's how I carry my N8. The main drawback of the Samzoom is poor contrast in sunlight, and of course no rich audio recording, but if you don't mind that it would be nice to have both phones for sure.
Siva Bharani, 17 Jul 2013Ziad u made it clear how good 808 is.. thank u brother.. that was fantastic briefing... hats-o... morewhat version of phoenix u used because latest version of phoenix is not opening on my win 7 64 bit !
Samzoom finally beats my 808 fair and square at the most respected site at AAS. Now I'm trying to figure out if I gotta ditch my 808 now for the Samzoom.
The only real gripe I have with the Samzoom is that literally it's not pocketable. My 808 fits perfectly on my jeans pocket.
Samzoom is simply better what with its 4.3" screen, 10x optical zoom, OIS and tons of apps. I'm almost close to buying the Samzoom now. But I'll never sell my 808.
Ziad Mohamed, 16 Jul 2013Coming to the serious points which will may be surprise for some of US 1- day light photos ... moreZiad u made it clear how good 808 is.. thank u brother.. that was fantastic briefing... hats-off to u brother... [ if topic is abt camera-phone then surely Symbian is suppose to be the reason... Nokia 808, N8, Sony Satio, Vivaz, N86, N82, N95, N92, Samsung Omnia HD etc... All due to one of the best Os SYMBIAN ]..
Do you have the same problem with 808? When
disconnecting wifi or mobile internet, if you want to switch it on again , you have to reboot the phone?
Coming to the serious points which will may be surprise for some of US
1- day light photos and landscapes
Nokia 808 Pureview will be better more clear and rich details than Lumia 1020 due to
- Bigger sensor.
- Bigger pixels for both full resolution and pureview
Nokia 808 pureview will better than Lumia 1020 at portraits cause you can do more zoom with 2 MP oversampled mode and also you have 8.02 mm focal length which gives you really nice depth of field on portraits mode for any phone...Lumia 1020 will be good but not as much as 808 PV
3- Macro shots
Nokia 808 pureview will better due to it supports more zoom at 2MP pureview mode beside the pixel size and sensor are bigger than Lumia 1020...also the focal range is 15 cm for both handsets.
Here the comparison will be very hard to tell but let us have slow walkthrough between our evidence
lumia 1020 will be better at any thing without flash cause it will be more steady and useable more than Nokia 808 PV which also can beat Lumia in terms of clarity and details if we used the tripod
so Night portraits and landscapes without flash will be better at Nokia Lumia 1020 cause not every time and all the users will use tripod
Videos: Nokia Lumia 1020 will be better at videos due to OIS and also I saw some sample and it's more sharp than 808 PV + beside the rich audio recording, however WP doesn't support stereo audio recording during the videos but hoping Nokia fixed that so the 2 mics of Lumia 1020 will do their job perfectly
So my final words
Nokia 808 PV > Lumia 1020 in every day usage.
Nokia Lumia 1020 > Nokia 808 PV in every night time, indoors and videos usage
YOU need to be proud for owning Nokia 808 pureview cause no phone will match it in terms of clarity and quality and all the camera guys and professionals will prefer it over any thing due to the 8.02 mm focal length and it's amazing 3.6 zoom at 2MP PV mode and Lumia 1020 quality is very bad comparing to 808 one
I may go for Sony honami, lumia 1020 or XPERIA Z, but I'll keep 808 as my main camera and will never let it for device like 1020...Lumia 1020 official samples on Flickr
have a nice day :)
Siva Bharani, 16 Jul 2013to get some ideas about 808 & 1020 go through
m.gsmarena.com/nokia_lumia_1020_preview-rev... moreI talked with Joha alakrhu on twitter and he replied me himself that they used the same sharpness level of 808....That was his answer about why 1020 have noise and grain on it's photo, he told me also that they didn't excess the noise filtering.
There's alot on this issue stay tuned during the next 3hrs and I'll post which handset will be best over all in terms of camera usage.... :)
Secondary Camera :
I looked for apps , camera demo qt , didn't find it ,
I don't see any apps to use the camera
to get some ideas about 808 & 1020 go through
enjoy using 808
Ziad Mohamed, 15 Jul 2013Agree totally about every word, the same for me about Lumia 800 for battery and zoom...but Nok... morethe actual camera application work more flawlessly instead of using any third party application. In built app must have zoom option in it ..
Ziad Mohamed, 15 Jul 2013Agree totally about every word, the same for me about Lumia 800 for battery and zoom...but Nok... more800 is compact in size and one can easily carrry it in pocket specially in office uniforms, dimensions of 808,800 don't bother you. But 920 disturb you a lot and I think 1020 is same size mobile so you can imagine how difficult it will be to keep this mobile in pocket. That's the reason i never tried any galaxy :D it's build quality can't bear to be in jeans pocket and size of galaxies... Don't want to talk about..;)

stay tuned ")
Ziad Mohamed, 15 Jul 2013Thanks dear Siva, sure I downloaded the Lumia 1020 samples and make good research on them and ... moreya thank u ziad.. I won't underestimate 1020, but meanwhile we can't let 808 bow down to 1020. Anyhow in near future the real story will be out right. Till that king ( 808 ) of kings ( cameraphones ) will stay the same..;););) sleep well my dear friend|-)|-)
currently main issue with windows phones is battery backup. When you don't use your mobile it will show you a stand by time of 4 days (wifi and net off) but when you use your mobile it will stay on for 4-5 hours . I have experienced Lumia 920 and now i switched back to nokia 808 just because of battery backup and one thing more. Lumia series don't allow zoom while recording videos. You can adjust zoom before recoring npt during the recording. so check it if this 1020 can zoom in /out during recording. Anyways i will suggest you to stay with your 808 going for Lumia series and try to use it like symbian belle 808 is imposible
Siva Bharani, 15 Jul 2013superb Ziad... Thanks for ur Good work... i guess what ever may be in sheets But straight to s... moreThanks dear Siva, sure I downloaded the Lumia 1020 samples and make good research on them and for sure compared them with 808, but since I haven't the Lumia 1020, so I will post what I noticed and what is the truth behind the new device quality and will it deliver or not
