RODJ, 16 Feb 2013hi carol. My dad and i read your responce. an dmy dad told me that phone have its own cons and... moreEvery phone has pros. and cons. Just that 920 has better pros then others:). Who cares is a new os? I would say it is good that is new, cause they will invest more in new os then in a old os. As for android, i really don't see it that advanced.... Now, this thing you say about fring is fishy to me. Something is not right there. They have an option called fringoutcall which you have to pay, cause with it you can voice call people directly on their phone, No internet no nothing is needed for the receiver. But, if someone has fring and you have it's number, you should see this options when accesing it's number. Fring call (free) Video call (free) Fringoutcall (not free), cellular call (which is useless, this type of call you can do without fring:) and invite to fring. So, you should manage to make a free video call without problems, everyone is doing it:)

It remain... moreyes im also has the same problem it happened bcoz im using luminous charger,,orignal charger i hav lost while travelling.when i used luminous charger i cant access to phone features or it doesn't unlock i need to takeout charging pin to unlock to check smss.
hey friends could any one suggest me the shooting mode in 808 for cloudy days as m unable to get details of the photo captured.
I tried the cloudy scene mode but disappointed.
In creative mode what shuld i do plz reply anyone..
Your dad is incorrect. Both Windows and Symbian are far more superior to Android... Android is a buggy, shitty os that can make even the best hardware lag.
trnsharma, 16 Feb 2013my 808's touchscreen behaves abnormal whenever I plug in charger to charge my phone. It remain... moreI Faced the same problem with my previous N8 but when I plugged it into Sub speakers or great speakers...audio quality is great but the touch functionality was very laggy and almost didn't work...that cause of battery issue I think...the big speakers drains the battery very quick and may be your charger is weak so you can't use the phone during charging it...if you use the original charger...then I thinks that's normal in Symbian and lot of phones cause I saw Lumia 920 face the same.

Carol, 16 Feb 2013what can i tell you? I would choose s3 crapp over iphone, i don't like samsung, but ios for me... morehi carol. My dad and i read your responce. an dmy dad told me that phone have its own cons and pros. he said that window phone 8 is a new in mobile industry yet android is almost far better. for me your right 808 is a good option. and regarding the fring. i am trying to make a videocall but there was a site open and i do need to pay $19 per call? what should i do about it?
my 808's touchscreen behaves abnormal whenever I plug in charger to charge my phone. It remains as it is as long as the charger is plugged in. Swiping the screen does not work but other touch functions work correctly. I am unable to swipe unlock and swipe homescreen. When I disconnect charger, it works fine. There is no problem then. Is there anybody who is facing the same problem?
@Carol: can you guide why it is happening. My device is 20 Days old.
why are there a lot of comments about other phones in this post? weird, i thought the comment part is for the nokia 808 yet i see post for S3, iPhones, etc.
RODJ, 16 Feb 2013hi carol good day. Thank you very much for your opinion. I always do search regarding what wou... morewhat can i tell you? I would choose s3 crapp over iphone, i don't like samsung, but ios for me, is even Crapier then android. I see that nokia is not in your list. Now, if i would have had enough money and this would have been my decision, i would have choose lumia for internet, apps and design and 808 for the rest:). If not, i would just buy 808. But... This is me. I cannot recommend you iphone, cause i, my self, have a very bad opinion about it. All i like about it, is that is not very big and is made with good materials. But there are better fishes for me, regarding good quality premium devices. And those are lumia or 808. Now... If i were you?! I would buy lumia, cause i see you don't mind closed systems. So lumia over iphone? With my eyes closed. In every aspect posible is better. Better screen, better browsing innovative and a hell lot of functions making iphone look like an amateur. Now, if you really like iphone so much then go for 4s, there are very small diferences between 5 and 4s. So you get the same crap os with no real life prooves that is not as good as 5, a bit thicker (no dissadvantage or advantage) and with less money, this is a good advantage:). Now stop being confuse, pic a good device and use it. It is not like you will marry it or somethin'. So, you ask me which i think is the best. I talled you now. The best is 920, now, if you don't like it, just go for iphone ar s3. Neither are very bad devices. It all depends on your point of view:).
RODJ, 16 Feb 2013hi good day, am thank you very much for your opinion. Actually I like xperia z too but do you ... moreYou can use fring for videocalling. Is a cross platform software so you can call anybody that has it.

I always do search regarding what would be the top 5 best smartphone and it always comes out : 1. S3, 2. Iphone 5, 3. Iphone 4s, 4. Xperia z, 5. Lumia 920. My friend has s3 i ask him if s3 is good or not. He told me it was good but it lag so much. One of my friend has iphone 4s and he told it was awesome but iphone 5 would be better. I knew that it was difficult to leave symbian but still there theme connecting people reminds me that nokia offers cheap yet stunning phone. Samsung is good yeah but they cant hide the reality that android lag to much. So do you think iphone 5 is good choices?

Actually I like xperia z too but do you think that it was too big phone for me? I mean a 5inch phone. My nokia 701 was 3.5 inch which is easy to bring and put on my pocket. Im not more on to apps and even games. Just call, text, surf and skype videocall is enough for me. Nokia 701 is awesome yet it doesnt support skype videocall even i have front camera. My parents advice me too think again before we buy a new phone. I do really Cant decide :|
massm90s, 16 Feb 2013u should buy a professional camera instead because of the OS is badhow certain are you about the os??! Have you tried it???? This is a great camera in a mobile smart phone... You can take great photos in different setting and upload it quickly... And you can play and be online!! There are bunch of apps that you can enjoy and do many things as in multitasks.. This is a strong solid device- wonderful device and above all it's pocketable!! Lol.
u should buy a professional camera instead
because of the OS is bad
RODJ, 15 Feb 2013hi im using nokia 701 running belle fp1. Carol advice me already to buy nokia 808 rather than ... moreHey, i advised you for the camera and software, and nokia quality of course, battery. But if you want to go to other OS's, then is another thing. Or you wait for the new phones to come out (if you have money) or you buy the already in the market ones. So, choosing from iphone 5 and s3? If you don't mind having a not so opened system, i would recommend you lumia 920 rather then iphone. It is proved that is better then iphone5, and as for s3... even phone arena (the most biased site ever) said is better then s3 as a smartphone. Now, if you don't like an closed system, though wp is not so closed as ios, or you just don't like wp. Then you can choose some of the samsung products or sony. I don't like the design and the quality of them, i also don't like android. But this is me... I would rather go for blackberry 10 then any of this 2 phones you talked about:). But, as i was saying: this is me. Now, if it's good? I would say that s3 is better then iphone (but it's uglier and allot more sensitive, it is like a women's tampons:)). While i'd say lumia is better then both. But, if you are more into symbian, then you should go for android. Maybe you won't like locked systems. Iphone cannot even send a file via bluetooth... Android is a good copy of symbian and others, so you should be fine with it. At first will be messy for you, but after short time you will figure it out... if you are a geek. Now, all comes to your your preferences. Good camera? have both, it cannot beat Nokia but is good enough for a 1 mm slimcrap:)). Battery? both are not something to brag about. Android, not very smooth and can become frustrating at some points but has way better functionality then iphone. iphone is smooth as a butter (minding that crappy interface, i am not surprised), but is BORING and locked as a prisoner in solitary. You can get very frustrated from this device to. If you like freedom, or you go for symbian or for android. And i think wp is starting to catch up. It is still not close to Symbian but... better then the prisoner. Iphone is kind of behind right now, so i would say that your battle is between lumia and samdung. But again, this is only my opinion:). You choose:P.
RODJ, 15 Feb 2013hi im using nokia 701 running belle fp1. Carol advice me already to buy nokia 808 rather than ... moreCarol gave you a good advice:)...well it's a little harder since I don't know what do you value most in a smartphone, if you are not satisfied(I'm not:)) with the results of cameraphones and you can live with fewer apps and games then 808 it's the winner. Now about the other 3 you mentioned I believe you won't see a big improvement regarding the camera so you have to decide what OS will suit you best, you'll just have to play with them and see which one feels better. One thing for sure is that if you can wait just a little more then samy and apple will announce s4 and 5s, at that point s3, iph 5(which I think is way overpriced for what it can actually do) and the newlly xperia z will have a price drop so there will be better deals. As for Sony, from what I used until now I think they are the only ones fighting with Nokia at quality(I just can't get along with that Android thing). In the end it's your decision, find out first what you want to do with that phone...have a good day:)

Carol advice me already to buy nokia 808 rather than samsung s3 or iphone 5. But im still confused. actually me too planing to move to other os because nokia abandoned already symbian. Can you adviced me should i buy iphone 5 or else what android would be better: samsung s3 or xperia z ?
Meharaj, 15 Feb 2013that should be android....so sad No, it shouldn't. That OS is a copy of symbian, all it has different is a "wonderfull creation" without the world could not have survived and it's called - Aps(wow). In fact it is so d@mb that you need to download an app for everything you need to do(things that were cleverly integrated in symbian). Not to mention the resources it requires in order just to function(download apps-yeiii) compared to symbian(a mature OS and well optimised). So you see my friend, your sentence should have been not "that should be android....so sad" but "I wish I could find a camera like this on an android". The only chance you have is Sony(actually they are the only ones I would choose if in one sad day Nokia would no longer existed) but from what I've seen Xperia Z is far behind...N8(it has a long way catching 808)
Meharaj, 15 Feb 2013that should be android....so sad And why would that be better and now it's sad? For who? For us is super that is NOT droid cause we're tired of that crap every crap manufacure uses.... So...?
