Nokia 808 PureView in low-light: From dusk till dawn

GSMArena team, 20 June 2012

The fact that Nokia 808 PureView is the best cameraphone money can buy is sure as shooting. This won't even pass for a pun. The 41 megapixel sensor and the tack-sharp optics deliver what no other smartphone can match and we even saw it successfully stand its ground against much heavier competition.

Nokia 808 PureView blind test: The sum of all pixels

GSMArena team, 14 June 2012

The Nokia 808 PureView has finally landed in swirling storms of hype. And of course, it wasn't given a chance to catch a breath. We didn't meet it empty-handed either. We had a finger on the shutter of some mean cameraphones and an EVIL digicam...

In a time honored tradition, we have the latest and greatest cameraphones lined up and ready to shoot for the top. It's been a while, we know. The last time we had a taste of 8MP sharpshooting action was in the distant 2008. 8MP then and 8MP now...

Mobile phone display mega shootout: The full picture

GSMArena team, 29 November 2010

There are so many of them that itís pretty hard to make up your mind. It all boils down to LCD vs. LED although this simple fact is easy to overlook. You can go ahead and blame it all on marketing but thatís one thing that just canít be black or...

Nokia C7 review: Rise and shine

Nokia C7 review: Rise and shine

GSMArena team, 03 November 2010

The Nokia C7 has no intention of breaking the chain of command. It is just a slimmer, simpler and more affordable N8 and comes with more conservative styling. The well-balanced Cseries have received an accomplished leader. The specs sound cool...

Nokia N8 review: Director of photography

GSMArena team, 12 October 2010

Weíve come to take Nokia for granted in the low end or the business class but it seems it has lost the knack for killer phones, run out of royal blood. Itís up to the Nseries to fix it all up. The Nokia N8 may just turn out to be the right cure. With that kind of hardware. Update, 08.02.2012: Symbian Belle update hands-on...

GSMArena team, 05 October 2010

We were almost starting to suspect mobile phones of giving up and playing soft. They seemed unstoppable you know. They went from 5 to 12 in no time and there was nothing to suggest that digicams will ever get a timeout for a much needed breather...

GSMArena team, 06 August 2010

Itís not like youíre out of options. Hereís one. Another one would be to get a friendís iPhone 4 and another friendís Galaxy S, put them on a table, close your eyes andÖ tell your friends to bugger off. Or you can do it the old-fashioned way. Flip a what...

Sony Ericsson Satio vs. Samsung Pixon12: 12MP shootout

GSMArena team, 21 October 2009

A year's truce must've been enough and some heavyweight sharpshooters are called to arms again. In fact, there's never been a ceasefire in the battle for profit. But we're about to look at the future of cameraphones and the battle to take place is more for glory than anything else.

LG KF750 Secret review: No secret, all guts

GSMArena team, 05 June 2008

One thing we know about the LG KF750 Secret is that it's hard to resist. Keeping it hush is not an option. The handset seems to have it all - turn-head exterior, top-notch skill and a few exotic extras to spice things up. Looks have long been the defining feature of the Black Label series by LG. Now, the Secret brings some muscle to tip the form vs. content scale the other way...
