Pelle, 27 Feb 2012Ugly phone, poor screen, symbian its a big joke. Is this all what Nokia can offer us? Lol, who... moreIt's not an ugly phone since it is based on the gorgeous N97 design. Samsung Galaxy phones are ten times uglier than this. The screen is not poor. It maybe on the low resolution side but the quality is definitely one of the best since it's a ClearBlack AMOLED, I'd say better than those yellowish Samsung SuperAMOLED displays. And no, Symbian is not a joke. It's the most mature, efficient, and advanced OS out there.
This phone looks plain ugly. No way im going change my N8 for this ugly duckling. Although the camera is superb i still would not want such an ugly beast in my pocket, even less so in my hands! Damn, might have to check out Xpera S.
Arabology, 27 Feb 2012LOL nokia sucks at OS, and too cocky to switch to android. it's playing it dirty and trying to... moreDid you just say MultiTasking?? LOL you gave they the reply to your mindless comment yourself
-radeon.-, 27 Feb 2012lol numbr of comments dsnt say a thing abt popularity of symbian. I agree diz cam z a monster.... moreWell I think symbian is goin no where... Nokia would'nt be mad enough to launch a phone like this and then abandon the os.. I don't think you understand the cost and hardwork of making these kind of phones LOL!!! After seeing this device now I'd say symbian will be with Nokia for at least next 3 years...
PL3, 27 Feb 2012A point of reality here to those who keep going on about the great camera. When you are watchi... morethat may be true. but here comes the benefits of montrous 41MP camera sensor:
-in capturing images in lower resolutions, say 12mp, even if you only use digital zoom, you won't loose that 12mp details unless zooming exceeds the 41mp sensor. that is because it will just crop 12mp image out of that 41mp. while if you have 12mp camera and you try digital zooming, the details gets blurry.
-this is also true in video capturing even if you use digital zooming details are'nt lost. in this case up to 3x zoom of 1080p.
-thirdly, 34mp may sound like an overkill for a camera phone but that's a really good feature if you are taking high res imges of paintings, sketches, etc and just resize it later. Visual arts is my talent that's why i like good cameras.
-having 41mp sensor in a market of 12mp or 16 mp, that will really grab the attention of many. it's just so innovative that nokia thought of joining seven 5mp sensors to make a beast like this while others are continuously developing a higher resolution single sensor.
RaviSS, 27 Feb 2012I am pretty sure that if Apple or Samsung had come up with this 41 MP sensor, those people her... moreyes you're right... Maybe sammy and Iphone will have this 41mp in next 100 years... Lol... All they can do now (especially sammy) make a bigger screen, brighter screen, oversaturated screen and maybe 6 cores in their phone... And Iphone will make their bluetooth can transfer data... And yes better antenna
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2012a dying OS and has 400+ (and still counting)comments. this is how you describe a dying OS and ... morelol numbr of comments dsnt say a thing abt popularity of symbian. I agree diz cam z a monster. But all of us knw whr symbian z heading. If u want gd picture quality why nt go 4 a DSLR or smthng lyk dat ? Get on board n a burning platform with a 41MP cam. Its ur choice. And im nt a nokia hater. Nly gvng my opinion

you need to understand the technology... it's 41mp for the purpose of zooming without losing quality. it's an alternative for optical zoom. they dont want you to take 41mp photos. read the article above.
Ugly phone, poor screen, symbian its a big joke. Is this all what Nokia can offer us? Lol, who needs that kind of camera anyway?
SS, 27 Feb 2012The battery can be changes on the fly when outdoors so what is the problem? The battery is so ... moregood, than buy a lot of batteries and charge them all together and save it to your pocket...
I am pretty sure that if Apple or Samsung had come up with this 41 MP sensor, those people here who are calling 41 MP a gimmick would be going crazy over it.
The 41-megapixel sensor does not mean shooting pictures the size of billboards(can be though). Instead, it's about creating pictures at normal, manageable sizes.
The large sensor enables pixel oversampling. it means the combination of many pixels into one perfect pixel. In other words, the camera can use oversampling to combine up to seven pixels into one "pure" pixel, thereby eliminating the visual noise. - PureView
PureView imaging technology is touted to be the result of many years of research and development
PL3, 27 Feb 2012My point here is that the 41 MP is a marketing gimmick, rather than a genuinely useful feature... moreagree with that... But everyone has their own choice... For me, smartphone with dualcore or maybe quadcore is useless...
jepp_2x, 27 Feb 2012yeah! sorry, there could be others too, and you're one of them. obviously!As you take it, but all sane voices imply the trick played by Nokia to implement an useless cam for outdated os.
Prove us wrong if u can
PL3, 27 Feb 2012My point here is that the 41 MP is a marketing gimmick, rather than a genuinely useful feature... moresee what hapens.though n8 was symbian with low specified,n8 rocked the world because of its camera.
xyz, 27 Feb 2012No other smartphone that can evenly beaten the CAMERA KING of smartphone which is Nokia 808!Hmmm... You haven't seen a pic from it and you are announcing it the king of camera phone?
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2012don't forget invisible battery sucker...The battery can be changes on the fly when outdoors so what is the problem? The battery is so small and fots in a small wallet as a spare battery those days you use a lot of juice. God bless Nokia for removable battery!
LOL nokia sucks at OS, and too cocky to switch to android. it's playing it dirty and trying to attract attention through this 41 MB camera. as if i'll carry a 41 MP phone in my pocket. and as if android phones can't get such technology, as if SONY can't! but android is more about multitasking and an efficient user interface! and look at the specs! we're talking about quad cores already! this "belle" OS is too poor, no wonder they're not giving it a boost.
