kindat, 22 Nov 2012popularity of n8 is higher than 808.. Why?It is because there's a lot of nokia n8 users and it is one of nokia's bestsellers.. 808 is more powerful than n8 with 1.3 GH processor, nokia clearblack display, 41 megapixel sensor, and nfc, etc.. but nokia did not make an effort to promote it; they are too focused with windows phones now. It's sad that despite it's greatness, it is neglected.. Until now some people in nokia stores did not know that this phone exists.. Even though, I feel lucky to have it and i will use it for many years to come. It is a must keep phone..
I am planning to have both windows 8 nokia lumia 920 and this phone and i'm good.. :)
Mado of Egypt, 20 Nov 2012Symbian OS is really amazing,very simple,very stable and you get every thing from it.I wish No... moreIF 808 would have had that. Then Lumia would have not sale. Symbian with that kind of specs you are talking about would have been and icrapp os or copydroid killer. It is just smooth the way it is. The only thing Symbian is behind the other from the market... is the browser which is not the best out there. NUT QUITE ENOUGH FOR A MOBILE PHONE. But... with a dual core, would have erase that quad-core makeup kit from the face of the earth. To bad, Nokia planned to ditch Symbian and push windows into market. Those specs would not have been a great idea, specially with a 41 megapixel camera. A MASS KILLER. THAT WOULD THIS BEAUTY HAVE BEEN!
how to switch on compass for all time in nokia map... is there any way to enable this for all time...
adil, 20 Nov 2012tell me any reason why i should not buy this phone ..plllzzzzIf you are not a internet freaq or a apps fanatic. The reason is right in front of you, what do you want more? Best signal you find, strong battery, fm transmitter, usb on the go, 41 mp camera, symbian belle, very good build quality. It is Nokia, so it´s not a surprise! Tell me what you want more:)
Ive seen a review in Russian on YouTube and the guy called it "The Eye of Sauron" - now I want it even more. Some day, some day...
is it possible to take a picture while recording a video? and if it possible how do i do it? I have the device but dont know how to do it. Regards from Colombia.
Symbian OS is really amazing,very simple,very stable and you get every thing from it.I wish Nokia keep to Symbian for ever
But I don`t know why Nokia is very preservative in specifications of Symbian phones.the highest symbian phone has 360x640 screen,4" and 1.3 GH processor.imagine the n 808 has HD screen 4.5" , 1.5 dual core processor or more and double battary capacity,wouldn`t it be the perfect phone ever(although it is already amazing)
Haris, 20 Nov 2012Off-course I've updated my phone to FP2 at 1st day.. I didn't use FP1 for even once, thats why... moreWhat do you like to have, a working phone or a HD games list? I sugest you to do the steps i toled you to do, yes, you will lose everythin you have installed, but nokia store has the list of them all. Enter in 'my stuff' (the head near the search button) then all downloads, there you heave all your downloads. If i were you, my phone would have been already formatted and half of apps already installed, if not all. :).
my gallery is hanging since this morning :( I ve restarted phone many times but still same
AnonD-2665, 20 Nov 2012i know this is possible! Have u updated ur phone? There is also an update for nokia store, use... moreOff-course I've updated my phone to FP2 at 1st day.. I didn't use FP1 for even once, thats why I don't know the differences..
Thanks all u guys for your replies...
And thanks David I'm using Opera Mobile, Mini & even for Desktop for more than 3 years, & yes that is really good and fast..
I'm looking for satellite view of India that is not available in Nokia maps other I'm completely agree with you David Nokia map is best... thanks for the link wty...
I wanna ask that if I'll reset my phone using codes then what will happen with my apps & games, will they remain or I need install them again... what about paid apps... do I'll need to buy them again or nokia account will remember that list...
I'm using nokia from beginning (1. Nokia 3500 classic, 2. Nokia 3550, 3. Nokia 808) I've never owned any other smartphone other than Nokia... so please guys don't think that I'm just criticizing Nokia... Whatever I shared with you people that is my own experience with this device...
Now I'm sure there is some issue with Nokia Store because today I got an update (24K) for nokia store, after installing I started Store & that's it, screen goes blank & device is completely hanged, I leave it for 30 min as it is.. but nothing happened, then I remove battery & started it again... and it happens only on 3G network not with Wi-Fi...
I can try to reinstall the firmware, formating memories, But don't want to do that because I've downloaded lots of HD games that need to be reinstalled again I think...
Haris, 19 Nov 2012I bought my Nokia 808 3 days before in 25K in Delhi.
No doubt its a great camera phone. If ... moreHi,
I am surprised that this phone hangs for you.
Also, why u need Google Maps? U already have NOKIA MAPS which is the best map service available.
I suggest you to use "Opera Web browser" .. that will give u very fast browsing experience..
With respect to apps & games, please find the below link:
I hope my reply helps u..
Hei i use this phone now. Its good and better video quality. Its camera is so amezing. Price: rs. 38,600
Haris, 19 Nov 2012Thanks bigbite... But man I'm telling you my one got hanged more than half dozen time in 3-... morei know this is possible! Have u updated ur phone? There is also an update for nokia store, use 'app stop' to kill unnecessary background tasks! Agree about battery life, it is short!
Haris, 19 Nov 2012Thanks bigbite...
But man I'm telling you my one got hanged more than half dozen time in 3-... moremy phone gets fully charged in just 2hours even if I use it and it could last a day and half or two of heavy usage... it's pretty darn fast and smooth, I had no major issues such as crashing of apps, freezing,; and switching camera modes is not a problem.. No lags at all even when I use the whole 38 megapixels.. The native browser may not be fast at all times but if you have a good coverage man it's way faster than you would expect. And what really amazed is that I can download videos as large as 1.3gb in less than an hour... I haven't tried using google maps yet even the time I use my c7 cause I'm good enough with nokia maps...
I believe that when you purchase a product you do usually get several days of replacement to check it.. you should have asked for a replacement since your having problems with it.. By the way it's not possible to use the front camera for taking pictures cause that's mainly for video calling only unless further updates would allow us to do so.. :)
Another thing I forgot to mention, the in-ear headphones that come together with the 808 is a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than those which came with N8.
The audio output on 808 is much better than on N8 (which was already much better than any Android phone, but close to the Cirrus Logic iPhone 4S).
Im still in love with my 808. :)
