Pureview_is_best, 20 Feb 2013Aah!! From last night HTC event and the so called hype around that ultrapixel, all the hype we... moreHey, i hope is not cause of me, that people started to like this device:). As for Lumia, i feel that Nokia is forcing ms hands to do a better system, a more functionality and opened mind system. Until now, nokia sold their souls to microsoft. But i hope they realised that mistake and will force microsoft to make a better system for their hardware. If we are to use wp, to use the best wp out there then. Anyway, if there is to come a real pureview lumia device. I am shore will distroy everything on the market. But not so shore people will cross platforms so soon. Samsung is in vogue, there are so many kids and close minded boys, that are not even looking at what is better out there. Exactly like apple fanboys:)).
AnonD-65020, 21 Feb 2013Hey carol how are you,just want know why nokia close good running model why any company do tak... moreBy the way, the phones you listed are only smartphones. They can still be found, especially the c5. But the old ones is normal to fade cause the new ones are out. And i reather take an n8 the a n97 or an n73. Old must go, new must win. For them to survive, at least. But we still have the chance to find them, even if not in poduction anymore. So to say, here i can find nokia 7610 at 70 euros, new(they say). So for who want's a good old model, it is not hard to find:). As for this models to be ressurected in other forms and better specs... What would be the point? I don't see any point in that:).
AnonD-65020, 21 Feb 2013Hey carol how are you,just want know why nokia close good running model why any company do tak... moreA new model will always be more costly then a older model. This is how the market goes. No one pays more money for older (though, new, unused) then for a new one, even if it has better specs. Hell, nobody buys an older model. Nokia needs money:). Now, why the new ones are not so smart as the older:-?. I have no clue either. Maybe their market research proved that this are not needed. That users don't need allot of those things. This also applies with symbian fp2. I never used front camera, but i would mind not having it at my wish:)). Is kind of dumb but.... I don't know, this is the life:).
AnonD-114075, 21 Feb 2013thanks for your reply Carol. but one more thing is that here in specifications it is showing a... moreHey, there is no problem with your camera. With the fp2 update, nokia kind of ”castrated” the ui. Letting users without some ordinary symbian options, and lacking the use of the front camera, is one of them:). You can still download scam for using it or there are others i can't remeber. But all can be found in store (sCam is free). And for the question... Yes, front camera activates only when video-calling.:)
Hey carol how are you,just want know why nokia close good running model why any company do take for example,nokia n95,n73,e63,5800,5230,c5,e72,5130, these are few models i liked and very good but now none these upgrade of available on stores,i purchased nokia 206,which is costly then x202 which has more features then nokia 206,basics are missing in this phone like usb,wireless fm,call alert vibration,2mp cam ,these things are missing in nokia 206,but price is higher then x202,why they dont upgrade in terms of specifications with price,they degrading specifications and increase price just by changing looks which no body want we expected from nokia to to come with more features and less in price,
Pureview_is_best, 20 Feb 2013Aah!! From last night HTC event and the so called hype around that ultrapixel, all the hype we... moreHTC one is a one big copy cat... the newsfeed is similar to windows 8 live tiles, the ultrapixel can be compared to nokia's pureview technology. I'm still looking at it though.. hey buddy 808 is indeed a piece of great craftmanship! ;)
Carol, 18 Feb 2013I don't have to much 808 experience but i don't think is far from 701, if you know symbian the... morethanks for your reply Carol. but one more thing is that here in specifications it is showing abt secondary camera but i m unable to open it! so does it works at the time of only video calls? because in N8 i can open front camera as well but in this i can't?

Aah!! From last night HTC event and the so called hype around that ultrapixel, all the hype went flat now. Nobody touches the dominance of Nokia in Imaging.
Saw the comments from Damian Dinning and its all clear to everyone who understand photography even a little.
So its now over to 25th Feb when nokia is suppose to release Lumia1000 aka EOS and things will be all clear that if 808 gets a big brother joining the family or not.
If 808 gets a big brother I will go with that otherwise I will order 808 on 26th Feb. March should see a new pureview coming to my hands, only question is will it be symbian or MS platform.
A special thanks to Carol as well for contributing to the success of 808 till now in this forum.
Carol we will be looking for more of your comments on 25th Feb for sure :)
which is the best between nokia lumia and nokia 808 pureview.
Please suggest . for me its is a huge investment .
AnonD-114684, 19 Feb 2013Hey mate...I agree with you ...
I hate windows earlier so much. Due to lack many good thing... moreme too, I can't wait for the 25th of February to see what earthquake the world will get from Nokia and I thinks it's name will be ((NOKIA LASER))as leaked from some sources :)
and I really hope the quality will be the same as the Symbian's 808 pureview.
I had N8 for almost 1 year and I have now Lumia 800 so I really know how windows phone OS is very baaaaaaaaad in terms of imaging quality and I read a lot about this...Nokia have now very difficult challenge and hoping not to fail.
GO GO Nokia...Your fans trust you :)
Hey mate...I agree with you ...
I hate windows earlier so much. Due to lack many good thing that have in symbian. I have this king of hill. But win8 gives me some hope with new features and some useful apps. Now I'm counting finger for 25th of feb to see whts Nokia up to.
Anonymous, 18 Feb 2013pls i need help, i want to get a new phone. But i am cofused on the one to buy between 808 and... moreI have them both now. Nokia 808 is a way better, faster, not lagy, though n8 has better body and design. So in your case Id go for 808. Its amazing
dwanna, 17 Feb 2013Please my Nokia808 touch screen has been hanging for few days now,i was told to restart the ph... moreClosing all open apps or Restart Phone or Pull out the battery are enough to fix the hang problem in all Symbian Phnones.
If those not working for you, better go Nokia Care.
Very important to all people who are waiting like me for the new Nokia 41 mp WP pureview (catwalk, EOS or what ever it is) this is some facts and cons about the WP in imaging section :
1- WP OS still has no face detection in the main camera app and it produces very shiny and highlight faces during the day light or night photos with flash (Symbian does great performance of face detection)
2- WP OS white balance is very bad in treating the colors which some times produces blue and green strange noise (Symbian does perfect Job)
3- WP OS has no zoom during the video recording...before recording only (Symbian all the way)
4- WP OS can't handle multi different light conditions in the same time during video recording as we see some videos makes you feel it plays with exposure in very bad way (Symbian is King)
5- WP OS gives the worst daylight quality among all the biggest 3 operating systems (Android, IOS, WP) it gives strange square details like it's a minecraft details (Symbian is the King of them all)
6-WP OS has problem with exposure tuning for still photos...doesn't work all the time and some times I need to exit the camera and back again to tune it as I want.
but however all of this...the portico update for Lumia 920 , the performance of lumia 510 and lumia 620 giving me the hope that Nokia now trying hard to develop and fix the WP OS to make it ready for the next big surprise and the real deal and I think the new pureview will come with this spec:
1- 800*400 (800*480) WVGA resolution with 4, 4.3 inch display and 217 ppi or above.
2- 1.5 duel core S4 chipset and 1 gig of ram. (or may be 1 duel only if it will not be a flagship)
3- Micro SD card support and NFC.
4- DLNA and I hope (HDMI port) and imagine UPnP technology (mouse and keyboard ability)
5-Nokia rich audio recording and optical image stabilization.
6-Xenon flash (if not it will be a joke)
7-First face detection in WP OS for the main camera app (not talking about the smart shoot and camera extras)
8-touch focus not touch to shoot.
9-quick lunch like the 808's one (faster than the WP integrated feature)
10-some new cool stuff and tricks from scalado.
11- I hope better focal range (808 pureview has 15cm wish is really big distance and some times it needs 20 cm to get the focus in some conditions comparing to N8 which has 10 cm, IPhone and galaxy S3 which is 6 cm only)
12-better zooming function in the gallery like 808 tapping one.
12-Oversampling technology, if pinning I will kill my self :)
and Finally I DO Hope that the quality of photos and Video will be the same as 808 pureview (i'll not say better) because if the new Pureview does great job in terms of details and quality so Nokia really defeat one from the biggest disadvantage in this OS which is imaging quality...beside all the features which exists in the Symbian.
I wish for Nokia all goodness in the next MWC...GO GO NOKIA destroy all the expectations :)
