Hey Genius! Can you add all of those features to your $100 device SIMPLY BY UPGRADING / FLASHING your device's FIRMWARE and SOFTWARE?
Sheesh, guess not, no? =))
let's compare..just tell me the price of the 808 and I will pick a similarly priced droid..
im sorry please accept my post !
I actually didn't buy my phone I won it..I would still be with my blade...the only time I get to use my camera on the htc is when am scanning barcodes and qr codes..so I wouldn't buy a phone because of the camera..
Can't wait for release
AnonD-34890, 04 Mar 2012from what am getting from the comments a smartphone is defined by its camera..that's what a sm... moreSo? Show us HOW to turn a $100 droid phone into a "super phone"!
This is the 3rd time for me to ask you. Lol.. It seems that you are actually just sprouting nonsense.. Gotcha.
No, a camera does not define a smartphone. Real-world performance does. Show us. Show us. Show us.
How can a 680MHz, 256MB RAM droid phone outperform the Nokia 808.. or the N8.. or whatever "overpriced symbian phone" you are talking about. Say which phones you will be putting against each other, and HOW the droid will outperform. We are all ears mate.
Especially me. For the 3rd... THIRD time.
OMG!! 41MP camera,Dolby sound,NFC,Navigation.
from what am getting from the comments a smartphone is defined by its camera..that's what a smartphone is to a Nokia fanboy..
I didn't say that my $ 100 phone will have hd capabilities or will have nfc once its modified..and remember I said NEARLY as good...I don't expect my blade to be as good as my htc sensation..
but I can comfortably and confidently say that android phones compared to symbian phones within the same price range are much better...that's why I would never buy a nokia symbian phone..never!!!
AnonD-44992, 04 Mar 2012wowww >>> wonderfull and impressive >>> any guess cost guys ??? around 20k ???What currency are you referring to? If it is in Philippine Pesos, expect it to be over 9,000!
Just kidding. I'll go over Php26,000. Probably reaching Php30,000
AnonD-34890, 04 Mar 2012you see you are just confirming what am saying..unless you bring other devices like computers ... moreI'll throw the first one to you. again.. you bought an 8MP camera just to view them on your phone? your HTC captures 8MP photos, WAAYYY BIGGER than your phone's resolution. As a matter of fact, 1.3MP photos are enough to display correctly in your phone. Even you got a cameraphone that captures photos bigger than your screen's resolution. Give me statistics.. how many people keep their photos in their phones, and ONLY in their phones? Almost everyone (except for you maybe) copies their photos to other devices.
"android can support both tablets and phones..versitility" -that is your ONLY point? I got a tablet because that is the ONLY tablet OS worth getting.. And by that, I am only comparing iOS and Android. Just because they are on both platforms doesn't mean they are already good. If that is your basis, then how about we conclude that iOS is the best, because you can find it in a phone, mp3 player and tablet.. wow. by your standard of "versatile", iOS is the most versatile.
"I could give an example if you want" -hey, didn't I ask you to "Show me how a $100 Android can become a 'super phone'" in one of my earlier posts? Or did you just blindly reply without reading what I wrote?
Read carefully, then reply. I would appreciate that.
Skimming, not reading everything, then reply? Get out. It's annoying.
i hope all the ppl who want to buy this 41MP 808 are photographers, else its useless to other ppl, also in android ppl can root their devices and make it outperform which is not possible in symbian, i mean techno-geeks and smart ppl wil never opt for a symbian OS based device, this is a FACT
wowww >>> wonderfull and impressive >>> any guess cost guys ??? around 20k ???
wowww ... impressive ...
nokia rocks ...
you see you are just confirming what am saying..unless you bring other devices like computers or HD tvs your photos from a 41mp camera will look like photos from a 2mp camera on that pathetic display..let's compare the phones on their own..
hardware aside or if we held hardware constant on all devices the android o.s offers more versatility.. on your tablet issue,maybe you should buy a symbian tablet..but wait there is no symbian tablet..android can support both tablets and phones..versitility...
superphone..yes it is..just like you said its not fair to compare phones that are not in the same price range..what I meant was with android devices even the budget phones can be modified to perform as nearly as good as higher end unmodified android devices..that means that they can outperform overpriced symbian devices..by overpriced I mean they do not give you value for your money..I could give an example if you want..
awesome phone ....
41 MP wooooooohhhhh......,,,
netz, 03 Mar 2012buy this phone first before giving a comment...lol...can you read it's called opinion
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2012I can buy 2 Samsung galaxy S1's for the price of an N8 here and the S1 will obliterate the N8.... moreAnd exactly HOW will the Galaxy S "obliterate" the N8?
Android still has some limitations that are not present in Symbian. Work around the OS? Of course! I have been doing that with my PC (MsDOS, Windows) for more than 15 years!
How about comparing actual, real-world performances for the phones under the same category/price range? And I mean "under the same category/price range", so no smart-ass answers while comparing a C6 with an S2, ok?
Prove your point with that. In other words: Show real proof.
[deleted post]Those S1's look like plastic crap though.
I can buy 2 Samsung galaxy S1's for the price of an N8 here and the S1 will obliterate the N8. It will waste the N8. Nokia really has to consider taking on android to their devices because android works around the user, not like symbian where you have to work around the os. And nokia should ramp up the specs of their phones, this phones specs can be compared to android phones that was released 2 years ago.
