This phone is great at current price levels but the SAR ratings keeps me away from it.Does any one have an idea if Nokia downgraded the hardware at current price levels it looks dirt cheap unbeliveable.
i don't understand where its available for 17 k, its seems just hype because its not available anywhere if anyone purchased let me know from where you are getting in india.im using i have purchased for 25 k.my friend wants to buy...

Whether it has 28mm or 24mm wide angle lens? In nokia n8 its printed under the camera as 28 but not here

I am using Lumia 920 and it has got the best camera quality. Buy 808 if you want ONLY the camera, else go for Lumia 920, you'll love it. Also, 808 works on Symbian Belle OS, so no apps, no fun.
AnonD-24259, 09 May 2013hey friend could u tell me one thing. The price of 808 slashed from 34500 to 17000 in India. I... moreYes you are correct in your observation. I was tracking 808 from last july when it got released in India for Rs 34000 and that was too costly for me to buy at that time and hence could not get that last year.
Then in January this year Nokia actually announced price cut from Rs 34000 to Rs 25000.
But now its price is again slashed to Rs 17000 couple of weeks back but this time Nokia hasn't made any announcement, may be due to the fact that 808 is not available on Nokia priority shops or on its online portal.
But at Rs 17000 its really a good steal, even if we forget pureview technology or 41MP sensor, than also its a good price just for phone and its other features.
Otherwise we all know at this price you will only get junkie Lagroid phones only and 808 is way ahead than those phones.

The price of 808 slashed from 34500 to 17000 in India. I got it for 25000 2 months ago and regret to some extent. Such a huge price drop in just one year after launch. Didn't get what nokia did with the monster 808. Stopping the manufacture of n8 and 808 for 17000. I shall have waited some time...!

Carol, 08 May 2013Hey, thank you for your word, but i'm just a normal guy. Like you here or anybody else in this... morecarol. How are you? I am facing some problem with my nokia 808.....would u like to tell me what is your facebook id?
12xu(George), 08 May 2013Good morning Carol and have a nice day :) Annotations like yours (especially the last one) ar... moreHey, glad to see at least some people who thinks like me:). Is very hard this days;)). Hail to Grece:)
we have Egyptian quote says "the words which comes from heart...goes to the others heart" and this How I can describe your great post you wrote today and I agree with you about every thing you said, may be I have some different thoughts about smartphone than you but the concept for you and me is one.
and this concept who makes me go to Symbian again, I swear that with the money I paid at my 808 I could get Xperia S, GS3, HTC one X and Lumia 920 (used), so why I just go for the Symbian again...
I need the hulk camera and media phone, The real mature OS...the ultimate media phone which supports every thing in every thing I could imagine + some extra spicy features like FM transmitter, HDMI, Usb On the go, Rich audio recording sound recorder...Symbian like old Eagle but still very strong and dominate the multitasking capability and no phone will ever give me all of this the way I liked and loved, keep supporting Carol you such kind and great guy.
I'm really happy with your beautiful words about my video, and about calling your friend...really this is the best part, special thanks and I hope you too go for small trip with your 808 to the abandoned homes let us unleash our imagination...thank you my friend :D ;)
hey guys where can I purchase wide angle and macro lense for my 808 in India ?
Would we see pureview with 41 mp sensor on windows OS this time, or if the wait is gonna get longer?
But now the pureview 808 price is getting very tempted here in India Rs 17000 (330$ appx) and if windows OS pureview is not released on May 14th Nokia event then I will go for Symbian pureview 808 and will save some money on it that will use for windows OS pureview whenever it is released.
Carol, 08 May 2013Hey, thank you for your word, but i'm just a normal guy. Like you here or anybody else in this... moreGood morning Carol and have a nice day :)
Annotations like yours (especially the last one) are indeed enjoyable because they put it in our mind some concerns that unfortunately too many people intentionally or unintentionally not even enter the trouble to think. Probably what's wrong is the operating system of the mind of certain people (as you said the magic words "advertising" - "manipulation" ) and not Symbian!
Glad to "see" you in the forum, take care :)))
NB: about the video of our friend Ziad Mohamed is very nice indeed and I agree completely with the associations you did. Sometimes we meet also at work (collect sample water from old wells for chemical analysis) small communities abandoned but some homes only, no more than ten or fifteen.
@ Ziad Mohamed very good video indeed liked it!!
