Hands down the best camera phone today but with an aging OS and with no future in app develepment, this will be a hard sell to all android and IOS fans. If the reason you're buying a phone is to shoot pics and videos, then this may be the phone for you.

Good to see Nokia still has the gutts to be innovative. I hope the Finns will make their comeback with devices like this... I can't help it, even though I moved over to Android, I still have a lot of sympathy for Nokia.

Man, this is ONE LONG REVIEW, I've been reading for about 45 minutes now.

As I see, the writer has gone in love with Symbian Belle and Nokia, it is great isn't it?

I know Nokia isn't dying yet, there is a lot to see from it yet.

One of the best reviews I read in a loooooong time . Looks like you were quite impressed with the 808 :) ;) It would really be a shame if Symbian got forgotten as it is a great and resource friendly platform (seeing what Finns are doing with it is a joy as it is the only phone that can process 41 MPix photos this quick-I know - the dedicated processor , but still I WOULD HATE TO SEE SYMBIAN GONE ) . It has INNOVATION written all over it :)

P.S. Loved the last line : "Madness? This is Nokia"

'' Madness?? This is Nokia ''
Madness maybe can change a thing, 808 on its way to do it.
I hope even James bond will change his name to agent 808 n then the SKY would really FALL. hehehe, good luck 808, do your best, n good luck Nokia.

I will say this.. the phone isn't too good overall but the camera is amazing. I'm jealous of it. I mean, not of the additional bulk but the quality.. I hope other manufacturers take note. If Nokia comes up with those cameras, but in a slimmer body I might as well give one a try, since I'm a camera hog. Until then I'll have to stay with Android which, unfortunately is much more advanced.

The 808 PureView is a certified Android smart toy killer.

I can't wait for the Lumia PureView. It will blow away the SGS 3 and iPhone 5.

Nokia will be King once again. Sorry Samsuck, your short reign is over. Nokia is back!

the most sofisticated and expansive hardware ever made for a mobile phone and the most reliable and friendly o.s. for normal users,not for desperate users of internet at every 10 minutes. every time i use symbian,is like founding a good old pal after a long absence
