Anonymous, 30 Apr 2012Great camera but why symbian. Nokia will rock if it signs android.nokia will never sign up with android.The camera is great, this will be a great replacement for my N8. I've looked at a lot of android phones but none of them come close in terms of camera specs(which is a very bi deal for me).
after seeing the specifications, it seems it doesn't have gpu ( graphics processing unit ) which is a massive problem bcoz the nokia 701 have gpu processor which is 250 mhz and 128 mb graphics ram which is quite outstanding and bcoz of that it enables playing heavy games and clearity in high resolution videos. But nokia 808 being a powerful camera phone it is really suprising. I seriously doubt its performance
advice, 02 May 2012if u check gsmarena endurance rating test which shows how long the battery can last with a sin... moreBecause they use very big batteries, for ex. the Note, but try to compare phones with similar hardware, just to see OS performance!
cynthiape, 02 May 2012sorry kid this is not like your android power hungry OS,,,this is the power of Nokia Belle OS ... moreif u check gsmarena endurance rating test which shows how long the battery can last with a single charge u will notice that the top places are for android and ios and not for symbian ,although nokia uses a smaller rams and slower processors which should had made nokia batteries last longer but alas that is not the case.
As much I like 808 Pureview, I HATE it's price 'cuz obviously it will be expensive. URGH!
AnonD-42597, 02 May 2012guys, nokia lost his no 1 position for his stupid decision. still now nokia using stupid symbi... moresorry kid this is not like your android power hungry OS,,,this is the power of Nokia Belle OS which less power resources..,get it!
[deleted post]grow up kid,no need to use dirty wards because they will only reflect your origin and how u were raised ,for me I am using android now but I know excatly how symbian os performs even the so called belle,some of my friends are fan boys for nokia and never used any other os so they give their phones to upgrade them to newer symbian version,and I can confirm this :symbian is great but is no match for android.
if nokia keeps using only symbian and windows phone ,nokia soon will be only a history like what happened to palm.
AnonD-42597, 02 May 2012guys, nokia lost his no 1 position for his stupid decision. still now nokia using stupid symbi... moreAbt the battery, 1400 mAh is ok. Nokia N8 has a 1200 mAh battery and its battery life is fine, so 1400 mAh will be ok... You will be able to take as many pictures as you want without being worried abt the battery... The 41 MP camera doesn't consume a lot more battery than the 12MP camera of N8.
And Nokia didn't lose its nr.1 position because of using symbian but because of the transition to WP. Elop's declarations that Symbian has no future caused an immediate drop in symbian devices sales. Also, not promoting N9 and not using Meego in other devices was one of the reasons for losing its position... But in Q2 things will be better for Nokia with their 2 flagships, Lumia 900 and 808 Pureview, so they will probably gain again their position and lose it again when Sgs3 and iPhone 5 will be released in Q3. In 2013 all will depend in how good will be the WP8 OS.
AnonD-49560, 02 May 2012nokia put a lot of effort into producing such a piece of hardware. It is just awsome!! :-D thi... moreIn fact, the megapixel war isn't over yet... There are some rumours that Lumia Pureview will have a 48MP sensor...
Windows phone and the new Blackberry O/S are the future because thats how things go in cycles..
About 9 years ago windows ,symbian,BB,Palm were the O/S..Then they start to get overtaken by newer O/S..In a few years IOS and Android will start to get stale whereas the newer fresher O/S will then takeover its natural progression..My biggest thing is apple starting to fall out of favour due to it closed wall system and cost.This is already happening thank god.
AnonD-42597, 02 May 2012guys, nokia lost his no 1 position for his stupid decision. still now nokia using stupid symbi... moreThis was in development 5 years ago when Symbian was around..This tech has been around for decades but the proccessing power was not available to do this..This tech was been evolved in the medical industry first for imaging and scanning..nokia brought to the mobile smartfone as only Nokia could..
I love the design of 808 its typical Nokia wacky styling..Folk complain about it been thick are deluded they want everything in a slim shell with good radios and battery life and it aint going to happen yet,if ever.
guys, nokia lost his no 1 position for his stupid decision. still now nokia using stupid symbian os for there phones. Just think in nokia 808 phone which have a great camera but dispaly density is only 184 ppi?? are you mad nokia? And other thing is in nokia 808 model using only 1400mAh battery? hahahah. after taking 10 to 20 shots, phone will display low battery. Nokia trying to fool some peoples but this is not the right way. Please grow up nokia and first you have to do discontinue symbian os otherwise you will be history within 2 to 3 years.
i'll buy dis phone and i really2 love symbian coz it make my life easier.no need for android.it suck!my first nokia is n gage and this will be 9th of my nokia collection.
PLEASE NOKIA DONT RUN ANDROID OS.
Nokia announce that 808 sales begin this month for selected market first in Russia and India
When this baby is Out .. You can all say Bye Bye for Samsung being Number 1 .
AnonD-49560, 02 May 2012nokia put a lot of effort into producing such a piece of hardware. It is just awsome!! :-D thi... moreYou are right in all except optical zoom,this one also use digital zoom when zooming,when you zoom 3x you get a 5 or 8Mpix image,no zoom you can get a 34 or 38Mpix image.
[deleted post]Tested Nokia Belle on Nokia 701. Smooth and snappy on that 1GHz processor. Using Nokia SU-8W was a breeze, no software installation needed. Browser result : 109/500 in html5test . com Android 2.3.6 is 189/500, so Belle not too shabby. Belle FP1 is reportedly 236/500.
I like it. If anything, it's a positive experience. Looking forward to Nokia 808 Nokia Belle FP1!
nokia put a lot of effort into producing such a piece of hardware. It is just awsome!! :-D this monstrous 41 mp sensor is just gr8. One thing can be assured, nokia has put an end to the megapixel race and i think that no other company will be able to match up to this high resolution, not even htc!! Earlier there was a hype for camera fones among various companies that who will release the 8mp fone, who will release the 12mp fone and who will release the 16mp fone??!!!! But now by releasing this, nokia finally put an end to the megapixel race. And one more thing, nokia did a great job by putting optical zoom instead of digital zoom coz digi zoom is kind of suckish!! Waiting for this fone !! ;-D
