Sam, 01 Mar 2012also the Display is quite primitive... 360x640 resolution my Nokia5800 has , even after 2 year... morei dont think nokia need to increase ram for 41 MP camera.
Its all about nokia belle which even runs smoothly on old gen phones like N8 with 256 MB ram
Nokia 808 Pureview - Best New Mobile Handset, Device or Tablet at Mobile World Congress 2012

My n8 can shoot 12MP and results are around 1-2.5MB size. So im guessing images from 808 will be around 8-10 in 38MP mode. With Pureview settings on and 8MP might be around 1mb? not sure
NobleScarlet, 01 Mar 2012It looks like a lot of people either forgot or did not know the REAL REASON behind the 360x640... moredroids users can see the difference since old Android used Pentile displays. Pentile display lol, pffft.
Who needs 40 Mega bytes in a digital era?
All the time i'm reducing the size of my contents to be work on internet, think about it!.
When i get a photo of 40MB i need to compress it to 100k to 300k. Big files are a nightmare in a digital era.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2012808 is navigator too!Yeah even those dumbphones with Nokia Maps built in it. :)
Nav N70, 29 Feb 2012It is like a dinosour among all smartphones .Yup it is. Trex(nokia) can still eat humans(android/ios) without no problem at all. Eventhough its brain is small compared to its size. XD
that is symbian all right.
nokia come back again with a big surprize its realy nice and amazing 41 mp is amzing
It looks like a lot of people either forgot or did not know the REAL REASON behind the 360x640 resolution.
Nokia said it before. This is to increase/ensure compatibility with older applications. You know the ones in the hard drives from 4-or-so years back that some people have that they still use/need until now? Or that really cool app downloaded from 2 years ago? Yeah, some people have those. This is for them, and to avoid complaints from people *ehem* Android users *ehem* regarding backward compatibility for applications. Troll all you want, but at reading distance, most people won't be able to tell the difference between 720x1280 and 360x640 resolutions
zico, 29 Feb 2012it looks like such a promising phone with all the features , but when you see only 512MB of Ra... morealso the Display is quite primitive... 360x640 resolution my Nokia5800 has , even after 2 year nokia is shipping this screen is a 'thumps down'. For a 41MP at least a HD quality screen should have been provided. And definatly 512 ram looks quite insufficient for a smart phone with 41MP camera! probably will have to use and see!
take picture with nokia 808 in pure view mode and you will see an android would never be able to do that .....and it really is a cameraphona...when you can have a phone and a tab combined why not a supercam and smartphone....and if android is that genius i would suggest to android to design a phone with 512 mb ram and 1.3ghz singlecore processor that would run 20mp camera(half of pure view 808)
This is a Camera PHONE. Not a camera. Do we complain and compare Compact Cameras against cellphones that compact cameras cant do calls, play games, update firmware Over the Air? No right? because phone is not equal to camera.
This 41MP camera is just an extra. Just like a laptop thas has Epic built in speakers for gaming or pr0n. I havent heard Audiophiles complaining on a laptops advertised speakers output and bashing it to hell...
To fandroid who are complaining about the 41MP camera......
Who needs a phone with a projector?!?! *cough cough Galaxy beam *cough
ok fine Android have guys who are into projectors and Nokia has guys into Photography. so whats the problem now?
No thank on the projector feature, i can plug my phone to a projector,DLNA or HDTV. kthnxbb
To those of you who think Symbian is not good, its really very capable. Try to use a Symbian Belle device first before judging the spec sheet.
Example is my Nokia N8 got infected with the "virus that makes folder invisible and puts folder .lnk". Even though my phone was infected both MMC and Phone Memory (E:/ and F:/) its still works. I removed the virus and fixed the folders and .lnk files in less than 2 minutes. Tried fixing another infected Hard Drive on both Windows 7 and OS Lion and i cant fix it. Just did the long way of copying the hiddden folders contents to a new folder.... Just showing the hidden folders in OSX and Windows takes 2 minutes or more.
I dont want galaxy note,ist too big,you nee to use ur two hands to answer calls ,or else u might drop it,u cnt even put it on ur pocket,i mean its size isnt normal,juz for me,
maril8, 01 Mar 2012who would want a 41mp camera on their mobile phones? and fyi, it says 38mp effective. Google c... more1. Who needs a 41MP phone if android cannot make it....
Hahaha.... Are you joking guys, after N8, many criticized who needs 12MP camera on a phone if 8MP(by android) is enough....
2. Overall performance. That's really funny.... Even force close doesn't work on my friends droid and losing our personal data is good performance....
3. Lumia is just out now.... Wait for windows 8 and you'll see many surprise from nokia....
I don't know how the phones are going to sell, but i'm sure that nokia's first tablet is going to blast the market with its sales....
I really cant believe that this nokia phone won the award ,because maybe it has the 41mp camera ,well for a person like me i would say I DONT CARE about the megapixel of the camera I rather chose the SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE ,because I am really an android fan ,but im not telling this because i love android phones is just that i dont like the design and even though it has a 1.3 ghz single core processor its still not enough for a smartphone. For a photographer or a person who wants to take a picture a lot of times especially when traveling this is a great phone that they should really get ,but for me I LOVE ANDROID way better
