[deleted post]Uhm.. You seem to have replied to the wrong post. I did not say ANYTHING about dual and quad-cores lacking in performance. I did not also say that I am sure this device will perform as marketed. Read carefully, please!
As for your one question: Personal preference. If a person wants to buy this phone for its 41Mpix, would you say 'no'?
I'll tell you my real reasons for wanting this phone anyway: It is better than the N8. I wanted the N8, but because I was told by a trusted source that this is coming out, I decided to watch out for this. I liked the N8 for it's features, and since this is an improvement.. well... it might to safe to say that this is better than the N8.
first of all, 360 x 640 pixels and 184 ppi??? this just makes the phone suck and whats the use of taking 41MP photos when the screen sucks??? and then theres 512 MB RAM and single core 1.3 GHzARM 11. this phone is gonna lag and people will furiously hate that. I would just say this phone isnt a phone, its a camera and these specs dont beat any android or apple phone , this phone is gonna suck.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2012That is dumb to say cause for a phone to work well it relies on those thingsYeah. You did not understand my point. What I meant was, as long as the phone works well and it is fast enough, I won't be raging about why not this, why not that. Most especially when ONLY the specs are out, and not the actual benchmarks/reviews.
Also, why dumb? Are you saying that real-world performance doesn't matter as long as the specs are high-end?
You can have a poorly optimized software with a high-class hardware the performs just as well as a mid-range hardware on a very optimized software. It all depends on how all the parts work together as one.
AnonD-28191, 01 Mar 2012i need a mobile not a camera :P i think most of the guys agree with meNokia is still locked in the Multimedia world.

AnonD-27284, 01 Mar 2012if you say so then a phone is not for media player,camera,internet browser,sms,or even colour screenindeed, but a SMARTphone can be.

AnonD-28191, 01 Mar 2012i need a mobile not a camera :P i think most of the guys agree with meyes obviously
So many trolls..
Are we forgetting the most important thing?
Real-world performance is what counts the most!
I need a phone that performs very well in real life. I don't care how many cores it has, what it's rated speeds are, how much RAM or what GPU they are using. As long as it performs very well according to how it was marketed and if fits my needs (and wants), then this phone will have my vote.
Khadim, 02 Mar 2012Now that is something. Eventually Nokia Decided to get back in the game. Goodthey tried hard but in vain, they r no longer in the race, very soon nokia will be manuf. only digi cams becos they are not smart enuf to produce smartphones.
41mp camera, 100mp from Nokia won't make any diff. Its not as if its gona be taking stunning pictures. Digital cameras with 8mp will produce better pixs. With 184ppi screen am sure this will really be a dull screen. Hey, I currently use Nokia N8 wit 12mp camera bla bla bla but the pictures i take have never been extra ordinary. So Nokia plz try something else bcos most other phones with even 8mp camera will compete favourably with this phone in terms of photo quality. The specifications are not eye brow raising either, no hotspot and adobe flash in 2012 phone? Disappointingly embarrassing!
AnonD-44227, 02 Mar 2012if you were to get the 808 you'll soon find that you're leaving your android device @ home bec... morei only hope belle os works and leaving aside android well i wud say anythin is posible in dreams!!!
AnonD-22804, 02 Mar 2012Nokia please dudes adopt Android...the phone is totally amazing...please just don't compel me ... moreif you were to get the 808 you'll soon find that you're leaving your android device @ home because the 808 with Belle is more than sufficient on its own
Just in Case anyone is wondering what the 808s housing is made out of
It's been confirmed by Damian Dinning that the main housing is made up of
Polycarbonate with a ceramic coating like the White N9s and Lumia 800/900s
Stainless Steel for the buttons and
Gorilla Glass, curved, for the screen and lens area the front is like the N9s curved screen
Now that is something. Eventually Nokia Decided to get back in the game. Good
