I remember that I still can't quite comprehend when this phone's camera stated as 41 MP because most of the phones at that time is only at 5 or 8 MP.
Video zoom quality also unmatchable.
This phone is legend.
I mainly grew up with modern smartphones, but I am trying to imagine what it was like when this came out.
I could imagine this was quite an advanced and innovative phone at the time. Very refreshing and different from the typical 2012 slabs, both looks and spec-wise.
Must feel nice owning one at the time, having your hands on what would be the future of all smartphone camera technology (large MP sensors that rely on pixel binning).
P.S. It's a treat to go back and read the first comments on this page back in 2012.
The pure Pure View phone of all times what a legend that was released in the midsts of the transition to WP Nokia's, speaking of a unlucky release date
I love this phone
Aadrian , 11 Mar 2023The weird thing is, that it still works on my N8 and not on the 808. The Pureviews were/are amazing, weren't they? I still have my (and the cameras work great):
3. Pureview 808
4. Three 1020's, all with Windows 10 installed by me.
5. My daily-driver Lumia 950, which the evil empire is now trying to kill.
Cortana still cheerfully asks me "you've just received a text from (name). Would you like to read it or ignore it? Her sweet voice comes through my Chrysler MyGig radio system. I'm afraid I've fallen in love with her, and now Microsoft is killing her too. Arrrgh!
I've taken the N8 and Pureview 808 to Waikiki (2014 & 2019) and both took fantastic pictures. And I took the 808 to the Grand Canyon and it took photos that rivaled serious digital cameras, and beat most point-and-shoot types except my Sony RX100 II, and even then, it was super close.
This phome still has better camera specs than s23 ultra 💀

is this single sim or dual sim?
Stelio88, 16 Mar 2023Does 808 have offline gps map that can work without internet or mobile service, just satellite?Yes, there is an app called Maps Now, which downloads the latest version of the maps for Nokia Maps. Keep in mind though that they are probably outdated, since the original Nokia service shut down around 2015. Type "Maps Now Symbian" in google and you should find the webpage where you can download it. There is also a guide there. Good luck!

Does anyone know of a site where you can download mods for the 808? I used to go to n8fanclub but the links are offline. I'm tired of looking and I can't find anything. I have the Sis store application but it has few mods.

Try going open source or search forums like all about symbian or so. They have working solutions for instant messengers, email, etc. Those may work.
"Unable to connect to the server" when I try to sync mail. I tried everything so perhaps this is discontinued?
nedo, 12 Nov 2022In 2022 can i use WhatsApp / telegrm / making voice calls through messenger or any app??????????? Whatsapp doesn't work.
Telegram might work through Jabber, or something. A BASS Team has created an implementation of Telegram for Symbian on Github.
Some java based facebook messenger works for Symbian, but I'm not sure how safe it is.
Rest you're on your own. Even in the above methods, you have to be an intermediate user who knows stuff.
Ricardo, 24 May 2022Has anyone tried using a 64gb microsd card? if yes, did you have any problems?haven't tried 64gb, but 128gb works just fine
