... moreonce again you are back with Good experience in using Nokia's windows camera phones. Good review ziad:-). Keep it up.
Line that sounds weighted and loud all the time is
NOKIA 808 IS THE UNDISPUTED CAMERA KING.
Hi Carol, Siva, Pureview is the best, Gitty, Iqbal, MDN, Goerge 12, and all my friends here
It' s about 2 month I sold the 808 Pureview and I really missing this phone with every single advantage and disadvantage of it
but before every thing, congrats me cause I worked finally for NOKIA :D (Promoter at Lumia Experience Team)
I'm very happy that I become one of this big family :D XD
About the Lumia 1020...it have been released around month a go but It's very expensive (around 800$)and I really can't afford it....beside one thing... :)
I already got the Lumia 925 and Lumia 625 as a a personal and work phone so I may hold it for some time and not cry till I got the Lumia 1020
about Lumia 1020 itself, I already played with it for a good while and compared it for sure with my Lumia 925 camera so there is my first impressions about Lumia 1020:
1- the device has an amazing build quality, better than 808 Pureview when comes to shutter button and rocker keyes, the camera hump also is not that big like we saw on videos but, design and is great and feels very solid in the hand.
2- Puremotion HD+ is very sharp and vivid, awesome screen that will never makes you even think on 1080p sh*t or something like that...stunning screen with very fresh and great color reproduction :)
3- the camera and this is the main whole point of the phone....different feelings
-Nokia pro camera app is very fun to use and very professional, I loved it, very professional touch from Nokia
-Manual focus feature is the best thing I love a bout this device and my Lumia 925, it allows you to pickup the perfect focus every time and you will never miss a macro shot, unlike 808 which is a little bit tricky compared to Lumia 1020 with Nokia pro cam
-OIS is the best thing I love a bout this phone, it really works guys on almost 90% of the situations, it gives a thunder light shutter speeds and freeze the moving flowers or allows me to freeze the scenes even over 90 KM car running speed...really awesome
Over all quality of Lumia 1020 is not on bar with 808 in terms of clarity, real colors, noise control
beside the OIS 2nd generation is weaker than the first one which featured by Lumia 920, 928 and 925
Dxomark site gives Lumia 1020 less points on sabilization than Lumia 925.
the last thing I've noticed, despite the HD + screen, the view finder gives me the feel that every thing is sharp and small, unlike 808 pureview with the 360p which makes me sees every thing on the view finder bigger...my opinion
808 Pureview is the winner for me...Lumia 1020 is amazing also and wins in some points cause it's more practical beside the WP 8 experience :)
Thanks for reading all of this guys, sorry for the long miss :D
Keep pureviewing my lovely friends :)

about your issue...we have 2 solutions
try to install any app from the store which will use the wifi like hotspot app, or remote PC app...and lets see what will happen..
If not working
so you need to make a hard reset by *#7370#...if not working also....try to flash your phone by belle delight, if not working, so the problem will be a hardware issue, send your phone to Nokia care and don't worry :)

Ziad Mohamed, 16 Nov 2013Great that you successfully did it,but I hope it will be stable with cause it supposed to down... moreThank you friend. I got my first touch with symbian via 3230. After that was using 5800. But i Din't get a chance to use symbian 3 or Anna as i was with n900 when n8 was out. So directly was with belle. When i go through many forum, there users are often spotted specifying that Anna was more stable and app store was rich. So thought to explore. But Now i can say a basic thing which every n8 user should like. Camera of n8 feels really Good and superb natural when compared to belle.
What about 1020 ziad. Did you get it.
Thank you carol. What you said is right. Anna is not that fast like belle. But Anna app store looks really diff. I can easily spot many many app than in my 808. Specially games too. Also os feels superb stable inspite of being official firmware. And battery back up really interesting. Battery stays strong than before. Now moreover phone looks classic than stylish with belle. Anyhow if there is any problem ( but nothing yet ) i will flash delight 6.3
Thank you carol.:-).

Siva Bharani, 16 Nov 2013Hello carol and ziad.. how are u.. at last successfully downgraded Nokia N8 to ANNA version 02... moreHey, i have tested Anna short time before to. On a nokia x7 before i upgraded it to belle. A friend of mine bought it new and was with anna. In 2 days he was frustrated a bit:))(so i installed a much user friendly belle for him). That's what i always liked about symbian. There aren't to many who can surf into your phone. Anna is quite a good system but i'm to used with belle. I would miss allot of things belle has. So, overall i say belle is better(for me, at least). I don't know any link to anna custom firmware but i will try to find one for you this days. I'll bback with an answer if there is any still alive.
Carol do u know any link showing CFW for Nokia N8 based on Symbian ANNA 025.007
I can't find anything Carol.....
Hello carol and ziad.. how are u.. at last successfully downgraded Nokia N8 to ANNA version 025.007
now i can see how it feels when compared to Nokia Belle.. Been using Belle from 2011 end, it will be nice to use ANNA as it is older version of Symbian.
hi Carol and Ziad
Is there any possibility to downgrade Nokia N8 running Belle refresh to ANNA...
is this link worthy to try..
I have try with ios ,android ,wp but nothing compare with symbian ,recently i bought a lumia 1020 ,great cámara but is not as good as my 808 pv
Hello, good day. Im using Nokia 701 another good handset aside from Nokia N8 and Nokia 808. Things are good in this phone. Simple yet elegant thats how can I explain it. Lagdroid dont had any chance to overcome symbian. Because symbian is for people who satisfies a customer like me :)
symbian support some good apps: skype, wechat, viber, whatsapp, opera mini, opera mobile, molome, photo browser, uc browser, andromenu, fb browser, tweetian, danger dash, bejewelled.
Nokia build a better phone, a better hardware and a better os, thats symbian forever to loved and beloved :)
