i love nokia 808 already, my phone right now is 5800, all this time i have compared it to any other phone, even when android arrived. i think android is great but the fact that every phone manufacturer makes it and everyone has one makes me even more love nokia. other companies are afraid to compete other ecosysytems, cause they know they cant beat them, so they joined them! haha. 5800 has the class leading audio quality i look for in a phone. i'm a music buff u know. one thing i complain about is its screen, cause it's resistive. but all in all, i dont mind all the bugs, i love the cam, i love it. period. and mind you, it's a 3 year old phone, and i know it did greatly in its time. nokia is still king it's just getting through difficult times now. i know Apple did got through a time like this when they almost lost everything. b ut apple stood up, and triumphed. like that nokia will also get around after sometime. we all know, admit it or not, that more than half of the people own nokia phones and with that no one can beat them. a starter won't understand the ui of android nor the restrictions of apple, but nokia knows better, they make phones for the starter, when all other companies forget about them. i love nokia. always have always will.

Honestly, i dont know what is wrong with you guys. Who asked for y... moreI have to agree with Ikenna351 on this. I live in the USA surrounded by Droid and Apple phones. Let me tell you they have thier issues and tons of limitations. If you don't like this phohe or Nokia, then go to your own forum. I"m the proud owner of many Nokias, currently the N8 and I can't wait to get the 808.
Now about 10 days i m using 808, htc one x in my bag never opened and sold samsung 3, my daughter has taken my i phone 4s, symbian feature pack one is the best telephony among all, talking sound is loud and clear thru head phone. Smooth response. I used to carry a lumix LX 5 camera and has kept it in my office. With 2G I can talk for 3days without charge. i open 3g manually whenever I need to check my mail. I m back to nokia because of 808.

To Samsung/Android fans:
Honestly, i dont know what is wrong with you guys. Who asked for your opinion or advice here? All you people do here is to complain & condemn symbian & the 808. No one ask you for that.
It baffles me what jelousy, envy & inferiority complex can make people do or behave. If you know that your Android phone is good for you or the best, please go to your section & sing the praises. Who is asking for Android praises here?
Who told you people that the Nokia fans here that want to purchase or own the phone dont own Nokia at the moment & possibly a Symbian one too? We know the pros & cons of symbian, yet we still stick to Nokia & prefer to still own more. Since when has that become your problems? You people make it sound as if your droid phones are perfect, yet when I visited the Samsung SII Gsm forum, there were so many complain there. Some even regretted purchasing the Device. So why not go back there & deal with your issues, instead you shift your disappointment to Nokia arena, trying to make us feel bad as you people are already? Please, deal with your issues, before you step out to look for who to shift the blame to or pass your mistake to. Please, we love symbian as it is. We dont need you to tell us yours is better, when we are happy with our choice. Life is about choices. Make yours, dont make mine for me..
I have & been using N97 for 3 years now. Yes, the phone has a lot of issues. But aint complaining. It serving the purpose i bought it for. Now I want to upgrade to 808 pureview, but its yet to enter my country, Nigeria. As soon as it does, I will be among the first in Abuja to own the phone, 808 pureview. I dont care the issues & limitations it will have, as long as it has all i want out of a phone, which I have checked the specifications & confirmed. I can live with its annoyancies. What i want out of a phone migbt be different from you the Android fan. So its wrong for you to come here to tell me "am stupid with my choice" because you think you know better. Its my life, not yours.
We do forget that phone is a toy, no matter what it does for us. It can never be perfect, even we humans. So, stop lying about having a perfect phone which doesnt exist.
I am going to buy the Nokia 808 pureview as soon as it enters Nigeria. And nothing you paint here about how bad Nokia Belle is going to make me change my mind. Its my money i will waste, not yours. So mind your damn business & get the HELL out of this 808 arena.
Coded max, 17 Jun 2012Am waiting For My own piece of d Nokia cake, am a die hard Nokiamaniac and a full time symbiat... moreHAHAHA! I see what you did there!
I knew it, Image E is indeed Nokia 808 Pureview!
Am waiting For My own piece of d Nokia cake, am a die hard Nokiamaniac and a full time symbiatic, I've not hold dis bomb but i bliv once it steps it's leg into My country(Nigeria) bliv me i won't waste a minute to dig out d cash, Meanwhile Wats wrong wit those Samsung fans? On their forum, u see dem give 2 praises and d next tin they start complaining almost immediately, like 2 praises and 7-8 complians, Who d fkkk are dey complaining to and why d hell are dey complaining? Lagging, yellow or pink tint on d screen, video issues, poor sound quality, battery drains out maximum a day, wifi related issues and so many other complains. Some dude bought a sgs3 and sold it after 10 days, barely 2weeks and bliv me dat dude must av lost some real cash u know. So pls if u are a Samsung fan, get d fkkk out of here, go and listen to ur fellow fans cry and pain. THIS IS SPARTA! THIS IS NOKIA! WE ARE SPARTANS!WE ARE NOKIAMANIACS! So Sammy fans beware of US.
dreamrickz, 17 Jun 2012dear thats just 4 accelerometer not 4 proximity sensor. My 808 screen is not locking while am ... more?? it locks from about 5 cm
if not there are many apps that lock it automatically if u want one just ask .. also u could use the lock side key
We really dont care about how Nokia manages their company. Yes its sad to know that Nokia is letting go thousands of people to cost-cut. But, as long as they provide us quality phones like 808 PUREVIEW, they still have the chance to regain what they have lost.
NOKIA always know how to create a phone that will STAND-OUT from the crowd(UNIQUE and BUILT WITH QUALITY). Nokia is the only OEM that creates unique designs, other OEMs always follow the same form-factor that makes design boring.
Not to mention the hardware features you will get from a symbian smartphone. They pioneered FM transmitter, USB OTG, HDMI port, USB and PIN charging, DLNA, Dolby surround, 3.5 mm jack with TV out, free Navigation, offline GPS, sturdy built, SUPERB CAMERA with rich sound recording, and so on. Just to name some.
Its also a good thing that nokia didnt use android, because if they do, we will not have the freedom of choice then, we are now filled with OEMs that use android. We dont want that, right?
Personally, I really want Nokia to keep symbian alive, whatever they want to call it(Nokia belle or whatnot).
There are so many features that only Symbian platform can offer. When i used android, it felt like its missing something, even if it should have all the things i want in a smartphone. And i dont want Restrictive Iphone nor Windows phone.
Nokia should construct their ecosystem that will both work with Symbian/Meego, s40 and Windows phone (basically for all of thier Phones). Not just for windows phone. If they do, Nokia will just simply be the KING again.
And this PUREVIEW 808 kicks-ass!!!

sanjumc27, 17 Jun 2012Android still is an open source, there is no perfect OEM build, Symbian has all this facilit... moreopen source,yes.but why do you need to make your phone backup on their server instead of a memory card,your phone or computer?.quite obvious.have you carefully read the license agreament you agree to before you use your phone?.guess not,If so you should not complain about symbian devices.
