Anonymous, 03 May 2013Can anybody help me out here . I am thinking of buying a phone. My priorities are good camera ... moreI don't owe it but i've played with it an compared it with my n8. The screen is not that bad as it sounds. The n8 screen look's a bit better but nothing to complain about if you owe the phone. Te icons are a bit bigger and you can see that the rounded corners are not perfect. Thatls about it. The quality of the colours is great and the screen is very visible in sunlight. If you are into camera. I'd say, go for it. You will get used with this small problem. And you will fall in love with belle fp2.
Anonymous, 03 May 2013Can anybody help me out here . I am thinking of buying a phone. My priorities are good camera ... moreHi anonymus
I post this the first 2 days I got my phone and I've been 1 month and 1/2 using it...I will post it again for you...enjoy
I promised you all to write my first impressions about my new lovely Nokia 808 pureview and comparison between it and my Ex. lumia 800 so let's start
1-the first time to touch 808 pureview was the one I own now...looks very luxury and gorgeous at white color, heavy and makes me feels by the amazing build quality and the great feeling in the hand.
2-Then biggest and real threat for me was the nHD resolution, it was for me like what the heck...why nokia released this awesome camera phone with such sucking low resolutions and 184 ppi only, I watched millions of videos and asked such number of users on YouTube about the screen, most of them told me the RGB and clear black display was perfect...but you know I must try it to be convinced and don't forget a lot of reviewers are proud with macro mode of their DSLR'S so the 808 pureview screen looks very bad in most of videos beside this f**king bad TV flicker which always appears. I really thought it will be like DOS screen
BUT I REALLY SOCKED when I saw it for the first time ever...it's very beautiful, really very very beautiful, I can see some pixels upper the icons and they are not that sharp...but at all the screen is brilliant and very vivid and gives amazing experience so this is the best great surprise 808pureview gives me :) not to mention how this screen is brilliant at outdoors wow :D
3-The third thing which makes me afraid from pureview, my experience I got from my old N8 and my ex lumia which actually I sold it 4 days before 808...WP is like ice running on hot surface or butter so daring to go back to Symbian is very big risk, symbian Belle also was great and practical more than WP 7.8 but it's very slow and you know no support and no apps and games like IOS and android... just I remembered the browser...OMG I'll kill my self one day for this horrible web experience :)
-Nokia 808 pureview makes me really loved Symbian more and more....guys it's very smooth, I can't tell you my second happy shock when I scrolled the menus...OMG Symbian is just brilliant and colorful and every thing is buttery smooth like my lumia 800 so I will not suffer from my second major threat which is the OS BTW I loved the browser, I know it's weak but it satisfied me at my browsing and if I open the mobile version of any site it's smooth and lovely but it's very slow when opening site like phone arena at its full desktop version...I do love the belle on 808 pureview.
3-I'm a beginner photographer and I just bought this phone for it's camera so I will not take a lot about this innovation... enough that the verge website said this ((Astounding, breathtaking, stupefying)) so I can get depth of field at portrait photos far from the person 3 meters an this is a phone I put in my pocket...really only the geek will compare it to crap like HTC one (the medi core camera) like the verge said....my 5 mp is better than all the 8 mp from all other smartphones...enough said end of story
4- now comes to my ex lumia 800 what it really missed
-very poor camera algorithms the most shitty 8 mp I've ever seen. really terrific camera and video is out focused first 30 sec.
- Nokia 808 has stunning audio quality with 5.1 channel and Dolby plus. ((lumia 800 is crap at this and produces very low sounds))
-true multitasking, and file manager ((I can't attach any office file at the mail on WP, it gives you sky drive link and not real attach...if the receiver don't have sky drive so he need to throw himself from the window.
-FM transmitter ((lumia 800 tells you that he loves you :D ))
USB on the Go ((Lumia 800 tells you he loves you again :D))
-full Arabic support at web browsing and keyboard unlike lumia 800
-all the important apps on lumia are paid and the market is very poor for smartphone.
-Zune sucks all the way.
- I didn't get the Bluetooth app till I sold even after 7.8 update...808 do every thing at every thing.
the only thing the lumia 800 have over 808 pureview is the browser...the best I've ever seen so far, IE9 and IE 10 are the fastest and the most powerful browsers in my opinion in terms of speed and user friendly.
really Symbian is heaven comparing to WP 7.5 and 7.8
because they are useless.
at all the comparison between lumia 800 and 808 pureview is like comparing cute small bird with old and powerful Eagle.....I really regret buying lumia 800, N8 was more useful, and practical
but now I'm very happy with this magnificent piece of technology...and if you ask me after using android and WP, Symbian still very powerful and really can compete...shame on nokia kill such great software, shame on you Nokia...any way I'm sorry for this long article I just wrote only hints cause I wanna to sleep :D
ENJOY YOUR PUREVIEW :D XD

First you have 41mpix sensor then a scaling processor then a arm cpu then a gpu.thats why It can handle moore than 1 billion pixel/sec.
Anonymous, 03 May 2013Can anybody help me out here . I am thinking of buying a phone. My priorities are good camera ... moreresolution of 808 is not a big problem. still, it can play/record video files with good clarity. 0.5 inches difference in nokia n8 and this phone is not a big deal.
Is it me or are Nokia the only ones who enabled 1080p recording on asingle-core CPU, or made sure Symbian would run lag-free on a single-core CPU, unlike Android? They've accomplished impossible tasks before, so who's to say that they're going downhill? Just imagine a Nokia running Android, with a larger battery and a quad-core processor accompanying the 41MP camera. If they launched this, Apple might just as well declare itself bankrupt.
Too bad they've axed support for Symbian devices. Anyway, the 808 is the best phone Nokia ever made.
Anonymous, 03 May 2013Can anybody help me out here . I am thinking of buying a phone. My priorities are good camera ... moreWell, the pixel density is better than old iPhone and the sunlight visibility is 2x better than the second best.
Can anybody help me out here . I am thinking of buying a phone. My priorities are good camera ,good music player and sound quality and screen clarity .

yebo, 02 May 2013may u kindly help me m not sure if my mother nokia 808 is original, its camera quality is poor... morewhat does it say in settings/phone/phone management/device manager? sorry but I don't know a shortcut to that:), or does it run symbian, I've heard of replicas running Android 2.3...also does it have all the ports/buttons/the camera bump looks the same?...
Just waiting for Nokia 9th May event in India and then 14th May event in London to see if Nokia really pleases us with a proper pureview (Not lumia 920 pureview) on Windows and take the technology and photography to next level.
raikoris, 01 May 2013got this phone a couple of months back n yes the camera is amazing. but i've a problem when i ... moreThat is not a problem, nor a bug. That is how the system was made. If you deactivate vibration in your profile, will not vibrate when locking either. Or when you turn into silent or other user profile that does not have vibration turned on. Also when is charging will not vibrate at all. Anyway, why would you want to deactivate this function? Is not something annoying:).
may u kindly help me m not sure if my mother nokia 808 is original, its camera quality is poor, some applications refuse to install guys, others refuse to start it says drive not found, the gprs nad dats accounts cannot be identfied by local telecom users.
have anyone updated the software from 113.010.1506 to 113.010.1508.
What are the improvements ? Have anyone noticed the change.
And one thing more I heard that this phone price has decreased and also its quality has decreased. Is it true. N8 some days earlier was being sold at Rs 18k but 808 now is available for 18 k.
We got for 25k.
Nokia always cheats. Not good to buy even after a year of launch. No good pricing. It's skimming price strategy.
Any expert plz reply.
Carol, 01 May 2013Hey guys, unfortunately i bring bad news for Symbian today (for those who had not heard it by ... moreThanks Mr.Carol....
I too don't know which mobile to buy after Nokia808 (in future, if it gives problems)
BelleExtraTaskbars & StartMenu are fantastic apps! They are very new to Symbian Os. We've to feel happy as we are getting support in software department!
got this phone a couple of months back n yes the camera is amazing. but i've a problem when i lock the phone by the lock key the phone most of the time vibrates. Vibrate in a way like when we click on a menu or an app. I don't have an idea as to what is going on. Could somebody tell me a solution
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2013Nokia actually owns many OSes: Symbian, MeeGo, Meltemi, and Maemo. And they can get Jolla's Sa... moreIn fact, Nokia abandoned MeeGo support. And the developers of MeeGo formed into a new crew with a new name and a new platform name... of course: jolla sailfish. More exactly, Sailfish is a resurrected MeeGo. Ok, not yet... but, it should be:)
Hey guys, unfortunately i bring bad news for Symbian today (for those who had not heard it by now). Apparently Symbian theme development will go down by the half of this year. Meaning that Nokia will stop supporting free will developers to sell and promote their themes on Nokia store. http://symbian-developers.net/symbian-art-is-dead/ . Man was i mad when i commented on this news...
@ManoharManohar. Hey, i'm still on N8. After all the new releases, nothing is impressive for me anymore. So i have plenty of time to buy 808 cause i don't have any other to buy after it. The n8 and 808 will be in history for me and i think i will never sell them nor give them away (of course, after i buy 808). Anyway, thank you for your wishes and i hope they will become true soon:D:).
@localhyd: Thank you for your kind words, but you know i'm no where near that:). Out there are many more better then me with this system... in every way:).
Anyway, i have a small interesting and practical new app for you. http://symbian-developers.net/belle-extra-taskbars-startmenu-for-symbianbelle/ . Try it, it is only 99 cents and will be developed into grater functionality. Wish you all a nice day...
