I was planning to buy this phone after my N8 but a coinsidence happend, I put my hand on my friend"s phone which is sgs2 with android 4.0.3 on it.. since then i decided to give up Nokia forever to the android world.. my next phone would be sgs3 I guess but now I am writing this comment from my own samsung galaxy s2 ... bye nokia and I am sorry it was very long relation at least since 10years i were only using Nokia phones. I really liked them but now they are nothing.... tell me what is the usefull of a 1,3 ghz handset with symbian or whatever they want to call it on it.
Pls. Do not compare this phone! If you like this phone buy it, and if not lieve it and don't say any bad coment and don't act like a salesman of other 0S manufacture etc.! And don't find any spec. Without it! Tnx

Th... moreFirst of all i would like to understand what do u man by u need ur phone to identify the caller?do u want it to read the name of the caller aloud? then just switch on driving mode and it will do it for u, secondly call waiting is available on SG3, just go to Phone App, Call settings,additional settings and tick Call waiting and if ur talking abt sound well all reviews will tll u that SG3 has the best sound output and if ur a businessman the USB OTG plus the support to connect a keyboard should be an added advantage on the SG3.
when this phone was first introduced, there was excitement but the delay i think have made that excitement subsides. and add to the fact that it's symbian, no improvement on the screen and the phone is thick in today's standard.
@ anonymous- to be more precise I asked to know if 808 handles facebook right from ur list of contacts and not lunching a different app. Cos I hate that in former symbian Oses. I need to know cos I enjoy this feature on lumia 710. Pls I need an answers from any1 who has tried it on this 808.

Already available here in the philippines, im getting this over the weekend! Cant wait!! I love this phone!!
Its a bad phone it doesn,t support divx.xvid,and other high video formats.
Being a serious businessman and a phone enthusiast, I am very dependent on my phones. There are four qualities that I require on my ideal phone. It has to be able to store a large number of contacts, around 6500 to be precise; while also being able to efficiently recognize and identify the contact name whenever I receive a call. Secondly, the phone must be able to tell me if my call is waiting when I am trying to call someone else. Other than that, I prefer that the SMS forwarding option is simple. Finally, the sound quality, especially when using headphones, should be good.
Within the past week, I have tested out three phones: HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy 3 and Nokia 808 PureView. My findings show that the Galaxy 3 cannot identify the callers' names nor shows calls that are waiting, and has moderate sound quality. The One X can identify the callers but doesn't show call waiting. However, the sound quality is superb. Furthermore, the aforementioned phones have inefficient methods when it comes to SMS forwarding. Lastly, the PureView seems to be able to do all the tasks very smoothly and quickly. Although the others have much better hardware specifications, the Nokia 808 wins when it comes to performance on communication purposes for businessmen like me. Of course I don't care too much about the apps, so given my needs, the Nokia 808 seems like the perfect phone.
I have decided to keep the Nokia 808 as my main phone, the HTC One X as a secondary one and to resell the Samsung Galaxy 3.
That's a real shame Nokia can't think of putting a stronger battery into their device, especially because that camera consumes so much energy.
After several shots the battery is already drained!
That's an absolute no-go.

Kingpin, 11 Jun 2012Pls can any 808 owner or user tell me more about 808/belle fp1 Os, especially if it's contacts... moreBelle social service app is intergrated with facebook and twitter,no need to download extra app for belle os
Pls can any 808 owner or user tell me more about 808/belle fp1 Os, especially if it's contacts are integrated with social networks (ie. Facebook) without lunching a new app as with previous Os?
And also what would be it's price at the time of availablity in nigeria?
I think its time Nokia should appoint somenone who is symbian and Nokia fanatic as chief designer and planner. The customer can teach Nokia who to build a mobile phone. Come to think of it Nokia E72 with 2,4 inch low resolution screen, symbian 3 and 600 mhz processor comes with 1500 mAh battery. After 3 years Nokia pureview comes to market with HD movie recording, Belle, 4 inch screen, higher resolution double powered processor at 1,3 mhz. And what is the power source??? a mere 1400 mAh battery. What is Nokia doing with app world. Apple and Samsung are ruling the mobile world with the support of tons of apps. Its not bad to be Nokia fan but its worst to be blind and follow Nokia for lower capabilities. 41 mpx camera is definitely welcome but today we are living in world where a lot is being achieved through mobile gadgets. Nokia is far behind when it comes to software and apps needed for business and leisure.
