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.
Please tell disadvantages of this phone. I want to buy but I have to be absolutely sure on all. thanks
Hi carol and all
Did anybody know how to bypass the websites by using vpn's like hotspot and fearless like in Android for my PV.
Pls it will be helpful.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2013how to set VPN (On)?kinda technical but maybe below links might give a hint on secure pvn connection set up, usually for business.
anonymouse, 04 Mar 2013add to previous notes... Nokia Store not working... can't download paid apps from Nokia Store ... moreHey, do what RODJ said. Everything will be ok, no worries. Ps. Maps works offline but you need to be patient, sometimes it takes 5 min. to find your location. Don't try to use it in a building. Many times it won't find you if you are offline. If what RODJ said doesn't work, do this factory reset one more time then reinstall the firmware via nokia suite. This should be enough.:)
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2013Don't be disappointed friend. I believe nothing is perfect in this world, in any phone, or eve... morehey thanks for your reply,in last four months it never hanged up only at that moment only it has ti hang anyway,,,i like carol reverted with this beautiful line " when you stressed to much you do wrong things." may be yes i was over excited to take a shot with pv,,,,of that program any way friends henceforth ill keep stanby whenever imp things if i have to shot.
AnonD-65020, 02 Mar 2013hey carol,im really very disappointed today morning there was very important video i have to s... moreDon't be disappointed friend. I believe nothing is perfect in this world, in any phone, or even with ourself as a human being we're far from perfect. There's always strengths and weaknesses in everything. The same is true with phones, System, and electronic devices.
When my Symbian phone got hang I quickly fix it with one of these:
1)Close all open apps, or
2)Turn Off / Restart my phone, or
3)Pull out the battery for 1-2 minutes (only if hang persisted)
Fortunately we the easy way out. BTW you have an awsome phone friend. Cheers.
anonymouse, 04 Mar 2013add to previous notes... Nokia Store not working... can't download paid apps from Nokia Store ... morehi good day, im rodj one of the nokia user who have a problem like you experience too. Carol told me this procedure which help me a lot. First, back up your files from phone to pc. Second, after you finish the first step from your mobile, dial *#7370# and your phone will refresh everything. After that format everything looks new and awesome. And your nokia store will refresh :)
add to previous notes... Nokia Store not working... can't download paid apps from Nokia Store on PC... no proper response from customer care over the phone / email... seeking desperate assistance from Carol
Thanks once again Carol,
i desperately need some advices from you regarding camera settings.
Taking photos in low light,weather increasing iso with flash off will do all or any thing else ?
Next what are the settings for taking photos against bright sunlight as this 808 camera doesn't have hdr mode.
Any apps for panaroma?
i finally got a White Nokia 808 PureView... updated it to FP2 OTA... multiple selection in Gallery not available... OS is as smooth as butter... few things missing - stopwatch, timer, GPS not working offline in spite of latest map update for my area, no burst mode, no panaroma... but i love my new purchase
phaniraj, 02 Mar 2013thanks a lot carol, for your immediate reply.password protected files are those which i meant... morePS. if you want to buy an app, be careful what file format you receive from your bank through email. So, there is an .pdf app that reads password protected files http://store.ovi.com/content/186299?clickSource=search&pos=1, here you can see it. Try to download first from some other parts too see if it works. Cause i don't guarantee it will work.
phanirajs , 03 Mar 2013ok carol i have to buy either adobe or quick office full version.thanks again. Two more doubt... moreHey, i didn't use belle fp2 so much, but you can try this: In belle refresh gallery is quite simple to make a folder and to move what ever files you like in this folders. (in belle fp2 you cannot move more files in the same time, but i think will work if you try to do it one by one) All you need to do is to mark them and to select options/add to album, then rename the album whatever you like and there you have it:). Then to see pictures by folders you just need to enter gallery then press the right screen from right up corner (under the battery) and you see some categories. Captured/favorites and then comes your created albums. With Nokia photo browser 2 you cannot create albums but you can see them more easy and intuitive. Another way to make folders (or albums) is to use Files app, then go to mass memory/images and there create a folder. So to move what ever you like in this folder. Nokia browser2 will see this folder as an album as long as it will contain image files. Unfortunately, the prebuild gallery will not see it at all instead, it will see only the pictures. Now, the rest of your question i didn't quite get it:-??. It is not something to understand:)).
