Just went yesterday to buy the phone to my favorite shop. Was SHOCKED to hear the pricing...
N8: 17,000 only.... nice. Very VFM.
808: 32,000! (almost double of N8's price??)
Galaxy S3 from a particular other company: 37,000.
I thought Rs. 27,000 would've been enough to get 808, which is a cool Rs. 10,000 above N8's price. But NO, it was not.
I have tested the S3 with my friend, and it was amazing... I know multimedia wise 808s better, but compare the specs and ask yourself...
""Just rs. 5000 difference between s3 and 808??""
This is coming from a loyal N8 customer: The company has taken customers for granted and will suffer for it.
No FAQ's, no decent articles, no replies to our queries, all the time just promoting your partners who made the sound chip or took 808 to Everest.. And now the pricing is the worst!! Will think about the S3 seriously now.
No offence to owners...
So here's how I reckon the discussions went last week:
Microsoft: We're launching something on June 18
Nokia: What's that then? We don't know about any June 18 event?
Microsoft: Oh, it's nothing?
Nokia: Ok then.
(Nokia then hears via Engaget that Microsoft is building their OWN tablet and hasn't told Nokia.)
Nokia: What's going on? I thought I was your favourite?
Microsoft: Well, you know how it is...
Nokia: Well, you know how we're the only ones selling ANY of your Windows phones in the US?
Nokia: And you know how you got your Elop man to cancel Symbian everywhere else in the world because of the US?
Nokia: Well screw you then. We're going to do a US launch of the most talked about Symbian phone in the world on the same day as your stupid non-Nokia tablet.
(Microsoft walks off. It's not really that bothered.)
Is this the beginning of the end for Microsoft and Nokia?
This has made by nokia corperation, china and in Finland.three are different qualities.finland is perfect.Buy only finland.nokia corperation is not perfect quality, but will get one year guarantee in India
There are large numbers of comments which is still support Nokia for not taking Android as their primary OS. Just how much does it take before you people realized the fact? 10,000 workers got fire on the plan is not enough?
Android ICS is not a laggy OS anymore, even on mid-rage phone with single-core and 512MB RAM. Plus only Android can truly compare to iOS in term of functionary and apps base.
Will you guys happy if 808's Android instead of Symbian? Well, you may not, but most will surely happy. Let's see how long Nokia will last without Android.
AnonD-51869, 19 Jun 2012i bought mine on last thursday(mumbai). do check your proximity sensor, breathing light, and &... moreHi, Its great that you have purchased 808...
Within few days I too going to purchase 808...
Before that let me know the battery of 808 on camera mode.. will it drain quickly or it behaves like normal.. that is like other camera phones.
AnonD-57380, 19 Jun 2012i never understand why androids are installing more and more larger and expensive hardware????... moreWell do you think that a 41MP camera phone would be a subtitute for a 12MP DSLR camera?
Check your flaws first before seeing the flaws of others.
this is called the real miracle done by nokia, totally get bored using android now u can easily find out android in samsung, lg. sony, motorola, htc and even in micromax. thats all the bullshit. very much common but nokia is trustworthy running on its own sowtware just like apple ios...
AnonD-59673, 18 Jun 2012I've ordered the 808 online last Friday here in India, just saw an update that they will ship ... morei bought mine on last thursday(mumbai). do check your proximity sensor, breathing light, and "mobile data wifi".
proximity sensor- screen should lock while your calling(just call on any number and place your finger on front camera[proximity sensor is placed next to front camera] it should lock the screen)
breathing light- breathing light is a feature in menu >settings>phone>notification lights>breathing lights on or off....(functions wen your fone is locked, a light blinks on menu keys which tells u fone is functioning or fone is not switched off) this can b clearly seen in low light or night
mobile & data wifi - mobile data and wifi is a feature which should(or can) be used separately and independently ,,,,that means ,a user after using gprs data or 3g data wants to "switch off mobile data" and use wifi it should work.
((( i was using 3g and wen i switched mobile data off and started wifi i was not able 2 browse, i had to again switch on mobile data ( but the '3.5g mobile data' sign was not showing it was utilizing wifi). the con is ,wen your browser will initiate a small amount of mobile dat will be used then wifi,, and if you have no gprs or 3g package u will have to pay every time u open browser or any app which requires internet.
anyway i think only me(black 808) and 1 more fellow is facing this problem. my friend's white 808 isnt having any problem whatsoever.
i will get my 808 replacement 2day and now i will have a micro sim with me to check all of the above.
****this is only a checklist(maybe 1 out of n number of 808 will hv this problem) not 4 trolling and bashing
Let me know the battery life of 808 on camera mode or on video mode.
Then how many picture can be taken with full battery mode.
Officially coming to the USofA
wow!, what a surprise,,this is very good and best mob phone for me, it is very clear and slicy,,,pravin
microsoft office mobile is updated to v2.1 and is available via software update on all belle smartphones.....

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2012i think the samsung and apple fanboys are now weeping for their cameras.... with the hardware ... morei never understand why androids are installing more and more larger and expensive hardware????? what they want to prove???? what is the use of quad core processor in a phone???? i think they want to show only hardware specifications in the race of android manufacturing companies. they are concentrating on hardware, not on the software.......
if samsung can run window7 very smoothly on a computer with single core processor then why they are using multi core processors in phones???? just only to impress the customers????? or confusing the customers that their phone is super computer and they do not need to buy a laptop???? do you think that a phone can be a substitute of laptop???? u can use a phone on the place of computer for sometime but not for long time. after some time it will irritate u when u feel uncomfortable by typing tiny keyboard of smartphone and tiny words on even 6inch screen cause strain on ur eyes.... then what is the use of ur android super computer with quad core processor????
important thing is practical smoothness of the os not only in terms of hardware specifications. more bigger hardware will consume more power and produces more heat...
in terms of hardware and specifications, nokia surprised us that how a 1400mah battery with single core processor can process 41mp images which an android can not do with 2500mah battery....
in practical world we count best who can do toughest work with little efforts not that who can do same work with much efforts.... this also can be implicated to the phones.......
is nokia n808 beter dan e7?and howmuch is the cost price of both phones
i think the samsung and apple fanboys are now weeping for their cameras.... with the hardware of the 808, it's not meant to fight muscle to muscle with sgs 3 hardware wise. but when u take into account the comments and feedback from the users, you'll see that four cores are not needed to run smooth, 720p screen is not something u cant live without. quad cores, super screens are just battery-junkers. tell me, isn't one core clocked 1.3 ghz fast enough? cam people tell what's faster than fastest? you see, the benchmarks are the evidence but can you measure up the benchmarks on your own? while usig the phone? the numbers of cores are just gimmicks to impress you, buut truth is u dont really feel the benefits of such cores.
