A lot of people here have misconceptions about Android and iPhone users thinking we just sit there playing angry birds all day or something and that's why we want more power, better and bigger screens and all the rest, but really most of us just want the best phone possible to always be able to do what we want with the phone, and i'll admit i used to have my head buried deep in a Symbian hole until 2011 until i realised Android is just better, and i always charge my phone everyday anyway so battery life isn't an issue but Symbian users always use that as their only real benefit over the rest, and Android battery life really isn't as bad as people try to make out, i mean for me moving from Symbian to Android was like switching from Black & White to Colour.
Strategiser, 24 May 2012I don't thinkNokia need to make new OS as symbian s very good, what with the last 2 updates. ... morenokia should make phones with hires/moreCores, but make single core nHD...
I'll stick with my single-core nHD because got battery life...
only Nokia smartphones are mobile... other smartphones are NOT mobile... at the end of the day you desperately need to find a plug...
do you want a mobile smartphone? or portable(not so much) game consoles with phone functions?
elho_cid, 24 May 2012Android would be very slow on this HW. Also it would be difficult to write a PureView camera a... morei am using gingerbread android phone with 1 ghz processor and 512 ram,and it is much faster than my friend's noika belle phone so i think android will run smoothly on nokia 808 phone,android is a very flexible os and that is why it still dominates the world and it still receiving major updates.
so again still hoping to see android on the nokia pure view phone
pureview 808 is meant for the adventurous kind of people. Not for the ones that have nothing else to do other than gaming and shuffling between apps. It's true, symbian is a dying platform. But there isn't anything that symbian can't really do. It's good to have a full blown browser in android but accept it, most people browse the internet though their laptops using unlimited broadbands.
People should actually be thankful to nokia that they haven't gone for the ultra restricted windows platform (no video call, no external memory card, no bluetooth transfer, no personal mp3 ringtone, zune software transfer, poor video codec suppor, etc etc) or the ultra demanding android platform. Imagine, if 808 had android, what would have been its hardware... Quadcore cpu, 1gb ram, front camera, back camera, high capacity battery, ice cream sandwich, etc etc... And it would have easily cost you 50,000+INR or $1000+. How many of you would have gone for this??
Be happy for the fact that with 808 you're getting the bestest symbian ever.
Go for it guys. Pureview 808 is a masterpiece. And probably it's the last symbian.
Show some respect for the platform that has served you for so many years.
YES, nokia latest belle fp1 has a lots of improvement, says in par with the most advanced Android and iOS platform. still in question ?? why nokia has to suddenly abandoned it (cancelling both CARLA and DONNA update programmes) and jumps over the most dangerous unproven/experimental platform to attempt self annihilation.
Will this phone do quite well on dark/not well lighted environment?
All this beautiful specs, but no document editor, no 1700 mAh battery, no 1 GB RAM. Why Why Why Nokia Experts?!!!
When is the phone releasing,eagerly waiting for it.this phone is toooo good no words for it.
AnonD-56073, 24 May 2012Who cares about 41 MP? Nokia is always behind...no matter what they do!!!lol They r just out... morei care and millions care .. keep ur opinion to ur self and go play some silly game on ur droid phone some where else

The hardware is also quite ok now. Maybe they should feed the human psychology more... people want more, bigger, larger and to compete. Let me break it down; Make phone with up to 1GB RAM, dual core CPU, even if the phones work well with the current specs. People want to feel that their phone is capable and powerful. Take apple for instance, I do not think the iphone OS need dual core, but apple understands human nature to know that if the competition is using dual-core and they are not, then they will lose some customers. Nokia should also increase their screen resolution even though their phones' screens are ok as at now, but feed the human psychology and it will be well with you Nokia.
dear all, any 1 can advise me when this product will get launched in Dubai and how much will be the expected price.....
This is a very beautiful and capable phone. I wonder why Nokia waited so long before they started making powerful phones. Symbian OS is good as well as I was able play with an N8 for 1 week recently. The OS is very intuitive and useful but the phone hardware made it a little bit slow.
Nokia, why did you almost kill yourself before waking up?????
"we've spent a day with an 808 Pureview,its blown us away"
Hi friends this is sandeep i have been using symbian from 2006 and i have used endless handset's from Nokia 73 to e90 to the n97 5800 Nokia n8 and now 701 which i feel is on par with quality and user experience
i really find that elop stupid to ban symbian phones and to force users in India to go for WINDOWS PHONE only if windows phones are introduced like phones in Indian market then Nokia can boom the mobile industry
like the below features
1 no micro Sim
2 no fixed battery
3 auto focus camera with led flash in mid range and high end camera for premium devices
4 memory card slot
6 and Usb otg cable
7 display clarity to be benchmarked of Nokia 701
8 ram of 512 to 1gb and with good phone memory
and the most essential to bring out good music headsets with the music control keys not the one that is of 300rs
please go through this tecnology.then you will understand why you need 41MP.
nokia confirm it will continue symbian support untill 2016
NOKIA !!! Continue your own OS Nokia Belle, Anna,. Do not go for Windows phones for any more.. If you do that Nokia will go to the history
İs 41 Mp cam really necessary?!? İ cant understand why nokia choose a way like this. İnstead of developing new OS's and bigger more qualified screens it only assemble giant lenses from zeiss. It cant rescue you to go bankraupt if u continue with this mentality
hey nokia symbian,before dying please grant us a video calling app.i think it is the only thing i find ,belle lacks.
