i had the opportunity to test and choose between gs3, g beam and nokia 808 and i bought the nokia. I realized that i wouldn't use 90%(maybe more) of the apps of gs3 and and i really like the samsung projetor's phone but i didn't find anything about replace the projector's led. I'm very impressed with my phone cus most of the time it's being better than my semi-professional camera, the gps is great and totally FREE, the sound is great also(thanked by DOLBY), and finally it has a wonderful build quality(my nokia 808, that is kinda heavy, dropped 1,0m with the screen upside down and NOTHING happened). Most of people in the world use their smartphones to take pictures and and update their status on social networks(you can check it out on google) and my PureView do it very well.
I've had this phone for over a week now. It's a good upgrade from the N8. Camera is beyond words. The faster processor makes everything run smoother. Voice guided GPS connects faster even when offline. I also find th Flashlight function by holding on the lock slider very intuitive. Ms office, fm radio, a larger battery... there's just a ton to say. Not to mention I have downloaded dozens of useful apps already. I haven't had the chance to try the NFC though.
I recommend the folloing apps:
2. Belle extra buttons
3. Facinate (for facebook)
Other things will depend on usage and preference.
In my experience to enjoy the symbian OS you need to learn how to use it. And uhmmm some patience. Make sure to check your phone memory from time to time. Some apps put files into it that fills it up and make the phone run slower.
This is From my pureview. It's not slow.

is there another dealer online ... moreThere is no explanation, my first shipment of Nokia 808 PureView sold out within three days, and people kept calling and asking, "When the device is available again" !
Nokia has a problem to keep up demand, I am still waiting for a new supply.

hapismiley, 18 Aug 2012Hi there! I had used this smartphone as my daily driver for more than a week, and let me share... moreLOL! You don't know what you are saying man..
>>In the Nokia store, there's no way to find out a list of apps you have installed. (common nokia, this is just a simple classification of apps)
In nokia store, under "My Stuff", you will see the list of all the apps you downloaded & installed.
I've been using this phone for 3 weeks & the built in browser is fast enough for me, though not as fast as the opera mini. So maybe this guy was connected on a slow network.
So folks, now you know this guy.. He has to do his homework first before commenting here so that he wouldn't look idiot*c!
