Hello to 808 owners, BBC I Player in UK only,Symbian no longer supported 5/3/2013
but there is a work round go to BBC I Player/ Big Screen web site,
you can stream video and radio but no down loading, it works ok on my C7/N8
for how long?, hope this helps.
Get it...I hope Nokia can do something towards this issue cause N8 has 10 cm and Iphone 5 and S3 has 6 to 8 cm which is really good...808's hardware sure will support such this update and that's means alot of depth of field at macro mode without Zooming, Thanks for the good information and for replying me.
AnonD-24259, 05 Mar 2013hey Carol my 808 has a battery of 1400 mah but phonetinfo shows battery nominal capacity of 1... morePls go and get the Mugen power extended 3000mAh Battery for Nokia 808 PureView,don't cry out loud.
AnonD-77434, 05 Mar 2013are you serious...you said that you can make closer shoot than before. Nokia 808 pureview has ... morestill focal range 15 cm i think.. but it was work in good light environment but now it works low light envrioment too...
AnonD-79951, 05 Mar 2013These are the noticeable changes after the update:

does they reduce the focal range after update...can you measure it ???? please answer me, Thanks :P
These are the noticeable changes after the update:
multi-select photos and share them to Facebook, Flickr or Twitter
multi-select photos and email them en-masse to specific recipients
long press a photo from the main gallery thumbnail view, to send, share or delete it
in the Camera application, access the general Preferences from the info pane in any shooting mode (e.g. Auto or Scenes)
New added shortcut keys from the bottom screen of the gallery
New shortcut keys or options now available in the gallery.
There are also some changes on the camera functionality. Now Preferences option is enabled for any shooting mode (Creative, Automatic, Scenes).
a slight changes on the Creative mode UI when you try to modify the settings. Just below the Custom Settings option, you can now access the Reset button which was placed at the bottom from the previous UI. Plus it has details of the previous settings for that specific Custom setting.
It’s true that you can now shoot an object in focus much closer than before. I’ve tried it and it does.
AnonD-41116, 05 Mar 2013totally! 808 pureview is worth the money... my sister actually insist that i should better buy... morewell it's the industrial design of htc one that impressed and definitely not the camera.. I think no other phone can outmatch nokia 808 pureview.. It's like way way ahead.. Lols. Only nokia can surpass what they did to this piece of technology..
Nokia has released another update for Nokia 808 Pureview and other Belle FP2 smartphones. This update is said to provide additional features and functions on the gallery and on the camera section. But some of you are still unable to see this update from your phone or even in Nokia Suite. No worries, you can now manually install this update without further waiting for availability. go for it
bigbite87, 05 Mar 2013photofunia and colorizit are also good alternative of instagram... Who knows maybe we will hav... moretotally! 808 pureview is worth the money... my sister actually insist that i should better buy some android high end phones instead of 808 PV because symbian dont have decent ecosystem... but i tell her im not after apps since i already have an android anyway... and also i think android is a disposable OS, like i said before, you can actually buy a decent android phone under $100-150 and it can do what s3 or any other high profile android out there! and on android its not unique anymore... a lot of chinese phone runs on android now so i think i am just fooled if i buy an s3 yet i can actually buy just a mere $100 phone with almost similar of what can s3 do(well minus the quad core, 2GB RAM and the other samsung paraphernalia like super amoled or whatever)! but its decent, you can play temple run and have instagram and besides s3's camera is crap!!
isnt those apps are paid? well actually instagram isnt just a photo editing app it is a social app and also a must have so molome is a close second after instagram....
im not that impress to the "ultrapixel" of HTC one! well at one point, lumia 920 still perform better..and 808 pureview will just put it to shame if you try to compare it to one..and even the old king n8 will perform better.... yes i might agree that megapixel dont matter but i trust nokia's innovation on camera department more than anyone else! i might believe it if nokia made that but its not! its not even good! like the old saying goes "barking dogs often bites" HTC didnt prove that their ultrapixel is better than lumia 920... just like when nokia announce L920 but it dont have the 41MP PV of 808, a lot question if will it be any good, but at some point some photos are better on lumia 920 compare to 808PV..just prove that nokia's innovation on camera isnt questionable... so when i saw the results from htc one compared to lumia 920, i just know that it is not even close!
even the likes of sony and samsung cant make a decent camera phone even they make DSLRs(well xperia z is good but its not better since i already saw the best with 808 PV)
12xu, 05 Mar 2013@ Carol, good morning Carol, finally (as you've told me for mediamarkt few months ago) i saw ... moreHey, until 1 month ago or more (i don't remember) this device was priced at 700 euros, now is exactly with the same price as there, 399 euros. When i saw such a discount, i thought that is cause they have just one or something. But after what you said, apparently is not cause of that:). So yes, this is the price of the device in Europe. As far as we can see:D.
AnonD-24259, 05 Mar 2013hey Carol my 808 has a battery of 1400 mah but phonetinfo shows battery nominal capacity of 1... moreHey, phonetinfo does not show your batter correctly. no worries about that. As for the 90% this. No battery charges to 100% cause Li-ion batteries start to degrade since out of fabric. They start to loose capacity. Normally an 1400mA rated battery should have like 1480 (more or less) and will charge till 1401/1407 mA. This will be like 94%/97% in phonetinfo measurement. Now, if this program reads your battery good (but i doubt that) just do 3 or 4 full charge discharge processes. Live the battery till it depletes to 0%, then plug it in and leave it to charge for 7/8 hours. Do this 3 or 4 times. You should see an improvement.
i really want to see meltemi... a very potential OS and should replace S40 not symbian though!
good morning Carol, finally (as you've told me for mediamarkt few months ago) i saw 808 in mediamarkt here in Athens (first time they have it for sale) and costs 399 euro, want to know how much costs in Germany, if its good price.
Have a nice day, greetings.
AnonD-41116, 05 Mar 2013the only disadvantage you'll have is apps.. you can't play games like temple run on this phone... morephotofunia and colorizit are also good alternative of instagram... Who knows maybe we will have temple run in the future for now it is the most sensationalized game just like fruit ninja and angry birds before!! :) this phone is indeed one of the greatests of nokia.. It's worth the money.. The camera alone is worth the purchase.. :))
somehow htc made me impressed with their htc one but i'm gonna keep this 808 pureview no matter what.. :D
i really dont understand why nokia will kill symbian... its really pointless... nokia belle catch up with the looks that both android and iOS has... its fast and consistent, i even found android with dual core laggy and buggy most of the time unlike what i experience on symbian...
apps isnt a problem, if they will continue this instead of investing more in S40, the ecosystem will surely grow!! s40 dont have GPU while symbian has and if nokia will try to compete with low end android with just s40/asha they are dead... there's actually a lot of android under $100 with decent hardware and its already dual core and qHD screen, you can play high end game like temple run on it and most important is it has instagram ( why i say most important because instagram is a social network that isnt cross platform so its a big disadvantage of WP and other platform, BB10 can just sideload instagram)
so nokia, why not use symbian in low end? i mean it is not like android, it is not hardware hungry to perform better! 808 pureview is the best example for this! it run on a decade old ARM11 chip and not that good GPU and just a mere 512MB RAM but still it performs with flying colors! it can be comparable to any other dual-core or quad core with 1/2GB of RAM!
and also why kill meego and that meltemi? it could be a good option as well but i prefer symbian actually since it is so costumizable and i love that! meego is futuristic and a good OS for high end! and i know it would cost boat loads of money if you make a new OS (that meltemi) so just merge it to Maemo/meego and make it a high end OS! the ecosystem will just grow if you support them!
again, symbian is a good OS for low end because it is not hardware hungry and it is more powerful than android and even WP! and meego as a high end OS to compete with high end OS and devices of WP and android and even iOS!
dezider, 04 Mar 2013Please tell disadvantages of this phone. I want to buy but I have to be absolutely sure on all... morethe only disadvantage you'll have is apps.. you can't play games like temple run on this phone coz its not available and also instagram (we have molome actually, the instagram of symbian and blackberry and also we have flickr)
but over all, this phone is superb... for me, apps isnt actually needed since i have an android phone (and later will have an iPod touch coz iOS's ecosystem is way better than android)
so its not a big loss if you choose this phone and this will be the last symbian phone that they will make so it is worthy to buy if you are a real nokia fan... not the lumia, nokia lumia is not the nokia that real nokia that fans know...
my 808 has a battery of 1400 mah but phonetinfo shows battery nominal capacity of 1320 mah. And one more problem even after fully charging phonet info shows only 90 % and 1200 mah charged. What shud i do. Is this the phone's defect or the app's. One more thing my battery drains quicker too i have to charge it in 12 hrs. Please suggest appropriate solution.
