This phone is quite expensive!
I don't know, even looking at tests I think you're better off with something like Canon EOS Rebel T2i for $599:
But then again, you have to carry two devices with you and although one is professional it's also quite big.
I don't know... like some posts suggest, this might only be a fad! Be reasonable, you have a pro wannabe camera that although it produces really nice pictures, it doesn't have that extra features that real professionals need when taking pictures. And the OS is a wannabe smartphone that also lacks some extra apps that all smartphone users like.
But if you don't need all those extra camera+smartphone features and don't like to carry two devices with you all the time then this phone is perfect for you!
The choice is in consumer's wallets! :)
timizn5, 21 Jun 2012Its just 8 mega pixel with dgital magic from a big sensor.. cannot compare it to an dslr bcoz ... moreI have the N8 and im not tired of it! Youre just a hater that cant accept that the 808 is the BOSS!!! :P
therock, 21 Jun 2012yup, it will flop all the way in people's hands...=). this is one unique, rare, fresh smartphone.just like SG III blowing in people's face?
Its just 8 mega pixel with dgital magic from a big sensor.. cannot compare it to an dslr bcoz it doesnt have an evf.. does this have aperture priority? Shutter priority? Adaptive iso and adjustable iso to 25600? The noise from shots taken at high iso? Continuos burst shots till batteries last? The real or naked eye colored objects or subjects.. its just a fad and will quickly go away once you have tried it..
Problem Fanboyz?, 20 Jun 2012I totally agree, the question is: "WHEN it flops" not "IF it flops" :Dyup, it will flop all the way in people's hands...=).
this is one unique, rare, fresh smartphone.
blueglue, 20 Jun 2012-- "No carrier has stepped up to subsidize the 808 PureView yet" Come on, this is... moreA lot of awesome phones never make it to the us. It sucks. Most of all something like the Omnia HD. Also stuff like a lot of those beautiful Sharp phones, the Pureview of course, and many phones with new and unique features.
what wow, 20 Jun 2012cant wait to see how much it flops :dDon't be a troll. Why is it gonna flop? It'[s not the best or greatest and will not be the most talked about. So what. It's still gonna do great. People just need to remember that the 41MP is way more that you should use 99% of the time and will take a lot of memory. So use it only as needed. While using an 8MP setting should take stunning 8MP pics and reserve much more space.
-- "No carrier has stepped up to subsidize the 808 PureView yet"
Come on, this is not good. After a lot of analysis and reviews,comparisions all over the net, No carrier has stepped up? This is disappointing.
Lets see after the sale stats of Amazon
nokia 808 can take pic like high end dslr if it is in right hands
It will be released in the UK, but via Amazon only... not sure when though.
I dont get why people get so jealous???if you love your brand,just stick with that love that and respect other brands.this is nothing but jealousy as haters' comments shows.btw haters will keep hating.only losers go to other brands' section and show their hatred.lol.pity on such guys.reallY :D..
what wow, 20 Jun 2012cant wait to see how much it flops :dYou are a flop... wonder why if they hate nokia everybody write in here...
what wow, 20 Jun 2012cant wait to see how much it flops :dAll you want in your life is disappointment, i expect your life so far is the same?
The reason Nokia did a u-turn in releasing it in the US was down to the demand for the device, so effectively, you're absolutely way off the mark with that comment.
I'm considering one, the camera just owns anything else that can fit a pocket.
