Mr.Nobody, 06 Sep 2017greeting,im here just to ask about compatible earphone (in ear) for this legendary device, I h... moreThe plugs are different. I have a pair of iPhone headphones and they don't work properly with my N8. But they work normally on my Galaxy. However, I bought a headphones extension cable from eBay with just 3 regular contacts on the plug, no microphone contact, and they work (at least for listening to music). Plugs have different standards, and if you just want to listen to music I recommend original Nokia earphones, or a regular set with no microphone or remote control function.

But you can also use any headphone (without mic) with it, it sounds really good.
greeting,im here just to ask about compatible earphone (in ear) for this legendary device, I had bought multiple earphone and all are not compatible. (I don't know why the music audio seems terrible unless I hold the microphone button all the time to get crystal clear audio ).any idea guys?
btw, I'm not using any custom rom , its still in original rom.

For a screen that's only 4" & has the clear black display,184 ppi is good enough for people who have a properly functioning brain & decent eye sight, with or without glasses. Btw, I'm typing this on the 808 while listening to it's FM radio...biggest phone fail my foot.
Why I can't upload photos from album directly to Facebook? Anyone knows and face the same issues? I am pissed... not even able to use Shareboard as well. Only WeChat is usable now.
Oh please, if you don't own that phone then you'll never know. Sammy S8 has just recently beaten 808 screen contrast ratio. After 5 years. And 808's s low light 8MP photos can take on any latest flagship phones, no comment about day light 38MP photos. Why choosing dual lens setup with one "tele" ~58mm equivalent focal length when you can make a 41(38)MP shot and then crop it? Furthermore 808's dual mic, capable of recording loud 140dB sounds, is still one of the best, if not the best, around. This phone is truly a technological wonder, a true monument of Nokia engineering.
Anyone out there facing issue to upload album photos to Facebook? It seems the album apps stop working to upload Facebook...

The contrast ratio of the ClearBlack AMOLED mounted on the smartphone in strong light is way better than anything we've seen so far."
And it stayed the champion for the next 5 years. Fail? I don't think so. The display was perfect for its purpose. Going outside and taking photos.
best phone ever
Biggest fail in phone history (not just smartphone, I am talking since the invention of the telephone) Super camera and 182 ppi.
My display started fading. is there any display availability for replacement
Worth keeping a phone like this! U can still sees review from GSMarena kept mentioning of this 808 pureview. This is really worth something after it was launched back in 2012.

Looking at my phones: Nokia N8 has 805 fans, Galaxy S5 has 2094 but they aren't on the front page.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2017small trick for whatsapp change phone date to yesterday. it will work ? I think the online server serving the Symbian handsets is off now.... So, the physical hardware on Whatsapp's end won't be there, so I don't think it will work. Sadly so.
Guys, You know what, when the Nokia 808 Pureview needs just 200 more fans for top 10 listing. I hope we can make it happen... will send a message that its not us the customers, who killed Symbian.
This phone would have been really successful if it ran Android.

WeeBee, 15 Jul 2017Serious camera question regarding PV808: I am an aspiring amateur photo nerd geek boy. I like ... moreIt can perfectly replace a p&s camera.
The level of detail at 8 mp is better than most of the compact cameras, even 16mp cameras. 5mp images are just "perfect". And you can shoot at 5 mp in high ISO with no worry due the thechnology of pureview. (38 mp at high ISO are awful)
- dynamic range is not very good
- white balance normally fails, and many shots need to be post processed in order to obtain the right colours.
808 is not perfect, but is close to be ;)
