SBP, 17 Jan 2013You're wrong, Carlo. The Nokia Asha phones are basically Symbian phones and Nokia's hell-bent ... more1st Nokia Asha is NOT Symbian
2nd Nokia Asha is Series 40 (S40, the S stands for Series, NOT Symbian)
3rd S40 has more features than the Series 30, which is a very basic OS. They are not used for smartphones, in which Nokia primarily uses Symbian and more recently, Windows Phone.
Nokia Asha is basically a feature phone with LIMITED smartphone capabilities.
Nokia Asha DOES NOT HAVE REAL multitasking.
Nokia Asha DOES NOT HAVE full background tasks to ALL APPLICATIONS.
Nokia Asha DOES NOT HAVE task switching to ALL APPLICATIONS.
Nokia Asha DOES NOT HAVE ALL the features of a SMARTPHONE OS, unlike Android / Jolla / MeeGo / BB10 / Firefox / Ubuntu / Tizen.
Another feature phone pretending to be a smartphone is the Microsoft Lumia series and the iPhone.
The iPhone basically destroyed the definition of the smartphone by dumbing down the requirements and lowering the ideals of mobile computing. Even Nokia Conversation Editor Mr. Ian Delaney defined smartphone "Ian Delaney Mod steelicon • 4 months ago −
Mistaken you are. My own definition of a smartphone is that "it's got apps". What is yours?" further DILUTING the definition of a SMARTPHONE.
It's either the dumb feature phones got smarter or that the users got dumber.
In any case, it's going from BAD to WORSE for mobile computing from now on since the REAL SMARTPHONE OS Symbian has been declared DEAD. Unless Android / Jolla / MeeGo / BB10 / Firefox / Ubuntu / Tizen picks up the torch from where Symbian left off and integrate everything.

SBP, 17 Jan 2013You're wrong, Carlo. The Nokia Asha phones are basically Symbian phones and Nokia's hell-bent ... moreNokia Asha is not none of Symbian phone. They running on customized Series 40 operating system.
Carol, 16 Jan 2013Hey, it us not Nokia's fault that allot of apps are not developed for symbian. This goes strai... moreYou're wrong, Carlo. The Nokia Asha phones are basically Symbian phones and Nokia's hell-bent on promoting, supporting and updating it with software, apps and tons of games. Much like they do with their Windows phones. So why the total snub now for the 808 which runs on the highest Symbian OS? Something's definitely wrong with Nokia. And it's their fault.
nokia is original that why i like the phone. the present king of smartphone is nokia 808 in all round. be original copycat is not good which phone manufacturer is paying apple $1.2billion be original
SBP, 16 Jan 2013Up until now I couldn't understand Nokia wouldn't develop quality apps and HD games on my 808.... morefriend have you tried games from umnet.com i used to feel same as you but when i downloaded many games from this site i got little relief try it if you didn't....
My Nokia 808 suddenly stopped vibrating when its ringing today. It doesnt vibrate anymore. What could be the issue?
Also, my phone memory is about to be full. I noticed that my messages are storing in the phone memory, and not the mass memory or memory card. How do i set the message or SMS inbox to mass memory or memory card?

SBP, 16 Jan 2013Up until now I couldn't understand Nokia wouldn't develop quality apps and HD games on my 808.... moreHey, it us not Nokia's fault that allot of apps are not developed for symbian. This goes straight to the developer (EA, Gameloft, etc.). They are not supporting symbian from a long time now. Symbian was never supported by developers in the way that androsid an capple are. That is why we have so less apps, and some of them are crappy to. This comes first from the market demending. And the market started to demand android more and more. And if you want money. You go for Android and you forget about symbian (also, to develope symbian apps requires more skills then to make them for android). This process causes a circle effect. Symbian does not sale cause of the lack of apps and developers don't support symbian cause it is not selling as much as fartdroids or crapples:). If we want to keep symbian developers (the ones still left to develope for symbian) we should buy allot of symbian devices, so to increse the market demanding by verry much. And also, to start buying apps and not downloading for free from wrz sites. That may cause a good effect for symbian and may bring some new cool stuff to your phone:). All s^3 and s^4 devices support anu kind of apps as long as this apps are developed for them:).
hi everyone anyway thanks for the advice. Actually im been using nokia since when i was in grade 2 year 2002. And im currently using my nokia 701. They ask me because every year they buy me a new phone. Actually my nokia 701 running belle fp1 was awesome. And in my own opinion nokia is still #1 smartphone which provide everything :)
Karthi, 15 Jan 2013Could anyone tell me that actual price of pure view?best for photography, & 25000 is worth for this gadget
Up until now I couldn't understand Nokia wouldn't develop quality apps and HD games on my 808. Prime examples are Skype video call and Asphalt 7, to name a hundred more. I'm very much sure the 808's processor and RAM can handle all the apps that have been developed for Android and iOS.
My 808 kinda became stagnant now and I'm sure even new software updates for it wouldn't compensate for the terrible lack of quality apps that could be made for it.
I'm seriously considering getting a Razr i or a Lumia 820 to replace my 808. Probably the Lumia 820 coz it's Nokia and for it's hardware design. The only drawback is that Symbian has perfected true and real multitasking compared to any other OSes. But the lack of quality and much needed apps and games are surefire reasons to replace it another phone.
Btw, the 808 browser might be very much ok but it's still way off compared to all and any other OSes.
This 808 isn't anymore highly recommended for 2013 use. Sad.
Bought my Nokia 808 Pureview today , and I upgraded to Feature Pack 2 ; It was a good deal since the phone was priced at 390 USD here so it's certainly a bargain
Regarding the feature , it's really good and smooth compared to the Nokia N8 and the camera is hands down the best camera ever used in a phone and regarding the smartphone features they are good and the 808 performs great
I recommend it to anyone !

You can try Blurry circle by daeva112 (if you like colors). I has transparent elements (which i love, but i don't like colors so much, black would have been better for me:)), and it is quite speedy to. http://store.ovi.com/content/303516?clickSource=publisher+channel&channel=&pos=9
Or you can try this if you like black: http://store.ovi.com/content/330282?clickSource=publisher+channel&channel=&pos=8
Also, Blade it is only a young guy: i think he is 19 or something. But a good theme designer. You can try hi's new themes. The firs is nothing new but, it's a mix between meego theme and carla. http://store.ovi.com/content/341933?clickSource=publisher+channel&channel=&pos=2
The second is a free theme dedicated to Symbian-developers forum.

If you know ro take photographs you will have no probelm setting your camera for this kind of scene.
