Anonymous, 11 Jul 2013they cut costs on CPU, RAM is the same as other flagships, but offer way more than competition... moreWhat's so hard to understand. They price their phones higher than the competition, even though what they have in their phones is older than what the competition uses (dual core S4 pro, really?).
Their windows app market is as poor as a homeless man.
That freaking big camera on the back looks ridiculous. They market this phone as a CAMERA phone. With their price I can get myself a really pro camera, if I want outstanding pictures. You don't need a freaking gargantua camera 423423532MP on a phone. For amazing pictures, we have other things, like let's say a camera.
Or maybe I want to customize my phone, to not look like all the others. Windows phones only allows you to change so little, like dimensions and colors on the front starting panel. Really?
On the other hand, you are right. We don't need octa and even quad core, since afaik Android is fully optimized for dual cores only.
But tell me, what phone with quad core you have and it lags?
Anyway, no one is right and we all use phones for different reasons and purposes, so it can suit our needs.
All I'm asking is a fair pricing on what you can offer. And I think you can agree with me that Android offers a whole lot more than Windows Phone.
The Boy with Red Hat, 11 Jul 2013Now you have my respect XDmmmmmmmmmmmmm....ok I forgave you friend :D
I wish this device change the table and become another piece of beuty from Nokia, and not forgeted in terms of update due to hardware issues, that's all I want for Nokia cause it's financial Situations are very tough...cheers XD

I know exactly what I want from a phone but tell me, what do you want, to brag?-look I also have quad core on my phone although it didn't stop the lag OR do you want actually something that's really usefull in day to day life? a camera on your phone that takes great pics, great solid build quality, free navigation and so on...what's so great on this new hardware if it isn't used at its full potential(just to make lagdroids keep up with duals from competition)-jeeeeez even my 808 with an jurassic CPU works better than most of lagdroids
ok I think I will never get to enjoy my 808, it's up for sale NOW!
No BIG NO. Midrange smartphone. i dont like this phone, i expected to higher specs.
Great cameras on phones. Now if they would only put a great OS like android on their phones.

Nokia make the best phone hardware, it's durable and looks great with unbeatable build quality. The problem they had when they were making Symbian was the Software, they always excelled in hardware.

WTF are you talking about, you think use an 8 cored phone with 2 GB RAM and a buggy-laggy full of malware OS make you a "professional"?? Geeze with soo little you was amazed.....
lacp, 11 Jul 2013And if you do not give so much relevance to this Nokia phone, GSMArena? There are other phones... moreHave you never been on this page before? I am happy that this week they are talking about this instead of Android or iOS 7. And no, there are no other phones more important than this one right now. Enjoy the show!
I really don't understand their pricing strategy. Strictly taken as just a phone, Nokia is good. But what Nokia can offer in comparison with the other brands, let's just say it's a poor offer (from hardware to software).
In this manner they will never be again on top.
