It's funny watching all the android fanboys come out and bash this phone. The fact that despite being a single core "inferior" device it caught their attention really says a lot. Specs aside, any tech lover should get this phone despite their OS preference. Why? Because it is a one of a kind device. Quad core phones arent unique, they will become the norm, but a 41 MP cameraphone(and running symbian)? It'll be a while before you see that again(Really doubt that pureview Lumias will be able to match this beast). If anything it will become one hell of a collector's item. Don't see this phone for what it isn't, see it for what it does and for what it shines.
I can't believe all of you people who believes Nokia sells low specification because Symbian belle can perform better in single core phone. They actually need to reduce the phone price as the 41mp camera still cost a lot of money.If they increase the specification on this phone in processor and its RAM for example. The price of this phone will cost more and who want to buy an highly expensive phone? I believe this is a part of Nokia's marketing strategy.

Read again, dude. Check out the specs here in gsmarena before you post things. It has gorill... moreThe Lava Xolo is a single core Android that does 1080P, the original GS could playback 1080P, its down to the hardware NOT Android to do this!
The 808PV has a whole GPU just dedicated to its Camera and media, its got NOTHING to do with being single or multi-core, quit spreading rubbish!
Tom, 27 Jun 2012Your only reason why you coming here is that you jealous and angry that NOKIA is doing the rea... moreWhy would i be jealous of a company thats trading at 2.19USD per share, and is being rejected by even its key markets?
Why would i be jealous of a phone thats outdated and is only good as a camera?
No, they arent doing any useful innovations, if they were they wouldn't be in the utter mess that they are currently in.
i wonder whether South Africa will receive the nokia 808 and how much it will cost
Nokia has to catch up. A phone with only a powerful camera is just, well, a phone with a powerful camera.
The processor, the RAM, the OS are all below average.
nokia always says attractive and theoretical specs abount her camera phones : big sensor , carl zies optics, stereo recording .. but actually I found iPhone 4S has more beauatiful photos. maybe less details but vibrant colors and more contrast photos.
why nokia can't enhance this side by software update 4 shooting algorithm
This phone just destroyed all the competition hands down. 2 units please.
AnonD-51996, 26 Jun 2012No quad core - Do you want to use Photoshop, etabs, MathCAD or AutoCAD on your phone??? Quad c... moreYou are right. Symbian can also run on dual and quad cores. It also supports higher resolutions than nHD 640X360. But Nokia gives nHD 640X360 and single core CPUs because Symbian can run much faster on 680 MHz CPU than 1.2 GHz dual core Android. And Nokia understands that quad cores are waste of battery power because Nokia is known for their best battery backup phones. Symbian was the first OS to have multitasking, megapixel cameras and CPU.
maybe it will help to proffesional photographers as a spare camera, phone will b famous only for camera
Samsung Galaxy SIII are the new crackers. Check the below link...
I agree Dual core is good to have in Phone to get a better GAMING experience depending on the OS.
But Quad-core is not required to get installed in mobile phone except to drain the battery.
After all.. Symbian BELLE the best OS which can give you superior experience in single core chips too... which is again COST efficient and POWER efficient.
Razor1911, 26 Jun 20121.3 cpu ??? thats all ? Come on nokia...
no quad-core (not even dual core)
no good OS... more
Read again, dude. Check out the specs here in gsmarena before you post things. It has gorilla glass.
Looking for dual or quad core? For your information, android OS can not process 1080p video (record and play) properly if it is running on single core. In this phone, you can do just that. Record and play 1080p videos on a single core. Other brands using android is using its dual and quad core specs to sell their phones. Where in fact, android can not process properly 1080p videos on single cores. That's the painful truth about android.
As I said before, android is a promising OS and there is still a room for improvement. All OS has its pros and cons. Its up to the user to weigh this things and decide which one will suite his/her needs.
I like both android and symbian belle but in my own opinion (please respect my opinion), symbian belle is still better than android.
I already own SGS3 and I am very eager to get pureview. I will buy this phone even if I have to wait for a long time. Tried to buy pureview but I am unfortunate to get one. =(
Have a nice day guys...
i just bought this phone its amazing and easy to use i am very comfortable with this phone
