box143, 08 Jun 2012Yes. I have no doubt on the capabilities of the camera. But WTF, only single core at 1.3ghz cl... moreno body should compare symbian os phones with android os. Becoz android needs more specified hardware to run smoothly such as 1gb ram with 1.4gh dual core processors so energy requirement is also very much in androis and they use 2500mah batteries but symbian can run smoothly on low specified hardware such 512mb ram with 1.3gh single core processor thus energy requirement is also low. Therefore symbian high ended devices are using 1200,1300 or maximum 1400mah batteries. The main thing is to see in practical life that which one is performing better... Although android phones have more powerful batteries than symbian phone, but the battery backup is more in symbian phones as compared to androids.. Nokia uses unique technology to manage the ram condumption and battery backup...
sad to read some comments here,It takes incredible photos and video and you can email and surf the web and many other thing,why waste time by use all the app that other plattform has.You just get bored and want moore apps and faster processor and better screen and It continues.Take nice photos and enjoy life,dont waste It by looking at your 4 inch screen all the time..I have put my android device away since I was one that was never happy with It and always looked at my screen and wanted moore and moore apps but never used them.This will suite me just fine.
box143, 08 Jun 2012Yes. I have no doubt on the capabilities of the camera. But WTF, only single core at 1.3ghz cl... morewhat are you talking about? are you idiotic or just insane?
the phone can do full hd video capture & rich recording even it has single core & 512mb ram only.
no other single core phone can do that.
yes, more core makes the phone faster. but it will just make the phone too costly? a 1 or 2 seconds delay in launching app is just fine.
nokia knows how to maximize the power of the phone without going for more cores. unlike others who just rely on more cores & yet are still laggy.
more cores are just for marketing gimmicks.
i dare you, tell me things that your multicore phones can do that the 808 can't.
can your multicore phones do rich audio recording? can your multicore phones do lossless zooming?

Mind you, in all likelihood a more market-oriented W8 phone with Pureview is not going to have the amazing specs of this camera (less MP, smaller sensor, etc.), but of course it should be better than the competition even so...

It's safe to say this phone is not meant to cater to the app-hungry crowd. It's the best camera-phone around, easily the equal of all point'n'shoot cameras on the market, and gives you the features of an average smartphone on top!
For some peeps (like me) this phone will give us all we need, particularly since it has a micro sd slot as well...
I just got my 808 today in Singapore .. From Nokia authorized dealer . My first impression is the back cover is very flimsy plastic , well very different from N8 and N9 ( unremovable battery ) that I have ,but the biggest difference from N8 ( updated to Symbian Belle ) is in the processing speed , super fast and no lagging at all , it matches the HTC One X . I am so impressed and surprised ... That Nokia / Symbian can deliver such a amazing product ! Give the Pureview 808 a try .

Yes. I have no doubt on the capabilities of the camera. But WTF, only single core at 1.3ghz clock speed? 1400 mAh? what's the use of the phone if you can't exploit more of it because of it's limited performance and power?!
Maybe Nokia just designed this just for display or to catch up their ever declining market share over other smartphone manufacturer or in any other way to gain back their product influence that they enjoyed a few years ago.
Dear NOKIA, put more juice in your product lines. I'm hungry of the specs from phones. Don't you noticed your left behind?

Klaudio, 08 Jun 2012WTF was that review?! I don't understand why did you post it here. It seemed more like bashing... moreyess the review its bullshit.. but u see the picture taken in 808 automatic mode its at 5mp = 8 mp in other mobile cameras.. so when set it set at 38mp (superfine) and take a pic see :)
If they will change the OS to Windows Phone OS, I think I'll consider this phone. Since I'm currently using N8, having Symbian Belle as my N8's OS, it worsen my experience with my N8. They should fix all the bugs first before releasing new phones with Belle as OS. As long as they don't fix it, this is not yet a good phone to buy.
The specs are good, but the support? Goodluck people :)
