And so, as of today, it has become a matter of choice:
Get 808 for camera/ video excellence,
Get S3 for everything else one wants from a phone, albeit with a acceptably good camera.
And Apparently, Samsung decided to stay out of the Megapixel Race, even though Megapixels, or Lens Size does matter after all...
Lovers and haters of Nokia come and go on this page. They don't like nokia phones because it's OS is symbian. This OS has been in existence for more than 2 decades, with EPOC as its original name.
As for android which is only 5 years young, it still has a lot of things to prove.
There is no contest between the 2 OS. Clearly, symbian is more stable than android. Android fans, face it. Android OS has a lot of bugs that needs to be fixed first. Symbian, since it is older than some of this readers, is very stable, bugs fixed and almost all refinements had been made. And with many add-ons coming its way.
To put it more simple, whom will you choose and trust to pull you up if you're hanging on cliff, a 5 year old toddler who's still busy playing with toys or a grown up and strong man? Think.
Have a nice day...
fredd, 20 May 2012errrp... with 41MP and only 16 GB storage...
my maths tells me you can take about 3 photos... more
I think you should review your elementary mathematics. And try also to do some reading. Just an advice, don't make a fool out of yourself. You made us LOL.
Anyway, I love the specs of this phone and I'm itching to have one. You may have a different view than I have and I respect that. Just get the phone you like and I'll get mine, too.
have a nice day...
Rollindadice, 21 May 2012read about the device before bashing, the pureview technology allows us to save crisp pictures... moreActually it and all the other Symbian ^3+ devices support a 64GB card but the needs to be reformatted before it works so they don't list it as having support but you can use a 64gb card (if you can afford one).
Sand-E, 20 May 2012dey shuld tag it with "A camera with fone capabilities" ;P But that feature list is one of the longest phone feature lists on GSMArena!
"belle"fp1 could do wonders to Nokia if so desires. Coz, a single core could managed well 1080 @ 30fps HD video recording together with memory card reader slot and 41 MP complex operating system camera.
20 days back i had a hands on experience of this device. In short i can a say its a awesome camera phone or " A camera with full of mobile phone feature". In full resolution mode camera resolution is 38MP & size of image is 6-7MB.
fredd, 20 May 2012errrp... with 41MP and only 16 GB storage... my maths tells me you can take about 3 photos... moreread about the device before bashing, the pureview technology allows us to save crisp pictures at different resolutions that's approx 1mb. phone also supports microsd cards up to 32 gb.
hey guys ,, can anyone tell me when this phone will be available in south africa , (cape town) ?
juz, 27 Feb 2012OMG! 41MP camera? Unbelievable, how great it is, can it beat the Dslr Cameras?? The OS is rea... moreDont complain at Nokia,complain to your android phone maker why they dont spend more time in making a amazing camera phone..lol..quad core and xxxx ppi and xxxx ram and so on..and no descent camera.Belle and further update will make this one last long time.a 2 year old N8 is still no1 in camera until this one is released,
Anonymous, 18 May 2012For the same reason of who needs a dual core or quad core. No one needs this is this days, but... moreAs long as it performs well in the real-world setting, why care about how many cores a device has? Of course, faster is better, but going into overkill is not cool. Who will use that much processing power on a regular basis in a smartphone? It's not like people who own smartphones do mainstream video authoring and photo editing on their phones. As for launching applications, an average of 2 second delay at most would be acceptable. To put it in PC terms, you wouldn't buy an i7, 8GB 1600DDR3, 2TB, 580GT build of PC for Internet, basic photo editing and office applications only, right?
Multi-cores are only for those who do real multitasking, and I am not taking about the OS, I am referring to the USER. How often does one run multiple power-hungry apps, frequently switch among them, and have at least one do some processing in the background? Example: Basic photo editing, HD video conversion/processing, HD video authoring, audio processing, HD video/audio playback. That situation is where you WILL need multi-cores. For apps that don't do background processing, multi-cores are just a waste of money.
To anyone who is curious, that example I provided above is my own, which only rarely happens, and happens on my Core2Duo 2.93GhZ, 4GB DDR2 9800GT system. Slow, but not enough to make me shell out more money for an i7 system.
