I will buy Nokia 808 Pureview on 9th of this month as a backup camera. Is there HDR on Nokia 808 Pureview? I also want to buy a digital camera at 15k, mostly because of the optical zoom and optical image stabilization. My requirements are: 10X or more optical zoom, big sensor size, rechargeable battery, 16 MP or more, optical image stabilization, powerful xenon flash, HDR, 720p video recording at 30 or 60 fps with stereo recording, 1080p @30 fps, lots of shooting modes, settings options, ISO 3200, shutter speed, and CCD or CMOS sensor. Can you tell me which camera would have most of my required things at 15k? Will be much appreciated. Thanks (:

1. Yes u can dwnld apps & games from nokia store. (but not the latest games).
2. Yes picture quality as good as entry level DSLR.
3. No blurry. It produces superb quality images. U should keep ur hands stable as much as possible while capturing photo.
4. Pureview is oversampling of photos. It combines 7 pixel to create to 1 super pixel. For details google about it.
5. You can capture at 3MP, 5MP, 8MP, 34 MP and 38 MP.
6. Yes the Xenon flash is very powerful.
7. No lens cover. But don't worry. Just put a phone cover. It's enough.
8. Symbian is known for its efficiency. It has good battery backup.
9. According to Nokia upto 2016.
10. No it has no OIS.
11. It depend upon the resolution of image. 3MP photos are around 1MB. 38 MP photos are about 10 MB.
12. 16 GB internal memory.
13. Yes free. But not all of them.
14. Look. If u want 12x optical zoom, Optical Image Stabilization and good picture quality, then buy Canon PowerShot SX 160IS.(price 9-10k).
But if u want stunning image quality, 3X zoom for still and 12x zoom for video, lifetime free navigation, rich recording. with smartphone functionality, then PUREVIEW 808 is best.
Note: PV 808 has much larger sensor than Canon Powershot SX 160IS.
But Canon PowerShotSX 160IS has more zoom(14x optical & 4x digital=14*4=56x total zoom) . Now choice is yours.
Thanks Ziad mohamed & mDn for clarifying about led flash & xenon flash. Really guys you all are so helpful. I need more suggestion. Pls help me..... My screen saver is not working properly. The brightness of the screen saver is okay for few seconds after that it become too dim to look at. At day light I can hardly see the time. Earlier I used nokia sleeping screen screen saver in my nokia E7. It was absolutely perfect in nokia E7 & I really fall in love with nokia sleeping screen. But it is not working properly in my nokia 808, it is also to dim to look at. I really missed that. Do you know the solution of this problem? How can I increase the light of screen saver of nokia sleeping screen saver or other screen saver?

It is a slow server download and will take from 30 Min's to 1 hour. At least this happens in my area. Anyways, i would not advise you to install that firmware cause is still in beta mode. Maybe you can wait a bit for the final version, here is what the developer of the version says: The One Reloaded v4.0.6 (for Testers!)
As mentioned, v4.x of my new 808 custom firmware is currently in progress.
v4.0.6 is not the final version as I want it to be, but it is a start.
If you are interested in the progress so far or even in helping me test v4.x, please read on...
v4.0.6 is based on v113.010.1508 and comes with ~565-570MB free space on C:\.
You can take a look at the detailed change log so far here.
This is not the final version yet. But should be on par with the .1507-based "The One Reloaded v3.4.0".
A few new mods are already added and some old ones were updated. But other than that it is pretty much what v3.4.0 already is.
This is a first step into the direction of the final version, which will be v4.1.0.
Before I start adding new mods, updates, etc., we need a stable base. I hope some of you can help me test v4.0.6 to confirm we are on the right way ;)
It may be not the version I have in mind for a final release, but nevertheless, it should be fast, stable and hopefully bug free!
Ziad and Carol.. i need working link to download THE ONE CFW (4.0.6). i tried but unable to download the required files.
