After using it for 2 days now i have to say i'm really impressed 1.3Ghz & 512Mb ram really improved performance is should have been done ages ago since N8 time, Symbian requires little power but its helps it big time. Apart from low res screen (Not massive problem) it very good quality display best i've seen on mobile. now the camera WOW WOW I've had the N8 I was amazed now this takes it to next step so good better then my Sony camera which has Carl Ziess you will not be disappointed so go for it i left m razr i android so not disappointed
bigbite87, 28 Feb 2013the dolby option appears only when your phone is connected to a headset..thanks for your reply, i was worried for dolby by not seeing without using using headsets

you might already have battery monitor by nokia, it's cool to have it on your homescreen but it's kinda creepy though cause you would know how long will your phone last every time you use it.. Lets support the developers!! :))

Man you're talking about silly things and it doesn't make sense.. What are you doing here if you're an android fanboy??!
Latest tests i made, and turned good as apps, games or themes.
Starting with apps
Belle Extra Buttons - superior app
qooCalendar widget - it is way better then original calendar widget
fring - tested for 2 weeks now. Videocalling for free:P Working great, even with low internet signal
Facinate- well done facebook app. has about all you need
lanternsoft apphider - hide useless apps from your menu. Works quite great
some new games i like:
mr.karoshi. Nice crazy game:)
Monsterit: at first i had doubts, but it is really a nice game. Made me drain my battery 2 times in a raw:))
They Need To Be Fed: another crazy game, in my phone hangs when i close it and i need to wait like 20 seconds until it closes properly. If i don't wait, and i press some buttons will make my phone hang to. But, no problem, i can wait 20 seconds at the end:)
Plants vs. Zombies by EA Games: It is java but is quite well done:D.
Just 2 themes i have, sorry:
LUCiDO Orange by adelino
Tangled Reborn by IND190
Give them a try, if you like, support the developers.

My phones have been Nokia N95 8GB, N97, N8 and since July 2012, the 808. My experience and comment is a Symbian power user. When I say Nokia no longer supports Symbian, can see it in how progressed Nokia Beta Labs page. Anyone who has used Symbian for years, knows what I'm talking about. The 808 is a phone with an excellent camera. If you've already purchased, enjoy it. But if not, my suggestion is to not buy it.
eduardo09, 26 Feb 2013Hi, I´ve got a 808 (my last phone was a N8), and really the build quality is not good (I... moredear, 5 years ago, when android and ios were just babies and were learning how to walk, symbian was dominating the smartphone world. Symbian is the real father of all mobile os and Nokia is real grand-father of smartphones. No one knew about smartphones until Nokia's nevigator hit the market. Whenever there is the battle of being best, only one name stands-Nokia. I don't know about the view of you people for samsung or sony but for me, all this android and samsung hype is because people can't think with their own mind. The think-"oh my God, that white phone is lookinp hot in his hand, how good will look in mine?" I mean what is the benefit of having a so called sexy smartphone when even you do not know about "s" of smartphone. If you do not know how to use, then any resource would be only a waste, no matter how precious that resource is.
5 years ago, no manufacturer other than Nokia could dare to make smartphones. It is Nokia who dare to be different and always keep itself out of herd so its customers do.
anyone who buys symbian phones think before buying ..and don't tell bad about Symbian after buying it...
Exactly one year after the announcement, still the best cameraphone out there! Happy 1st anniversary, 808!

guys lets support our developers in nokia store.. There are a bunch of good apps there.. If we have money lets buy them to give us some more decent apps.
I recommend androMenu v5 by softsnake.. Its really really good! It can make your phone look good. Also dunlock v1.1.!! Undroid by jeti is also a nice game to play..
By the way all themes suggested by carol down below are cool and i personally picked meego by blade cause it's clean and icons were really great!!
AnonD-80330, 26 Feb 2013Please somebody who has the Nokia 808, could tell us about this phone? I need yor comment, ... morealthough 920 and 808 are both made by Nokia they run on different OSes, their camera performance is different, the price is bigger for 920 in my country so either choise you make you'll have to deal with some compromises. Now, if I may offer a third suggestion so you won't miss that "apps and games" ecosystem you can go for 808 and a Lumia 620:), or the newly announced 520/720. 620+808 has a smaller price than 920 where I live:)...
