Can anybody suggest any place to buy nokia 808 in india, checked all the online stores its discontinued..
Hey everyone, i want to buy this phone especially for its camera quality but Symbian has been ditched by Nokia? Here are some questions which i would like to ask:
1. Will i be able to download apps and games on it, if yes then from where?
2. Is the picture quality really like DSRL cameras?
3. Do pictures gets blurry when zooming?
4. I'm very confused about the Pureview technology, I'd like to know how it works.
5. On how many resolutions we can shoot pictures on this phone?
6. Is the xenon flash powerful enough to brighten a darkened room?
7. Is there any lens cover on the phone?
8. How is the battery backup?
9. How long will the Symbian OS will be supported by Nokia?
10. Does this phone has optical image stabilization?
11. What size are the pictures produced?
12. What is the available internal memory?
13. Are apps and games free to download for this phone?
14. I want it especially for photography, should i buy a point and shoot camera instead? If yes then which one would be better in the price range of 10-12k?(minimum requirements are 12x optical zoom, big sensor, xenon flash, awesome picture quality) i live in India btw. Thanks...

Siva Bharani, 02 Jul 2013Ziad and Carol.. i need working link to download THE ONE CFW (4.0.6). i tried but unable to do... moretry this one. http://uploaded.net/file/e6qn5132/from/hwdsdg. 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!

No... moreLed flashes for a short time probably because the camera uses it to calculate the exposure, but the photo is taken without Led. Similar to this, Xenon can flash twice very fast, first time to calculate the exposure and second time to take the photo.

Mamun, 01 Jul 2013Hello every one. I'm a regular reader of this site since long. I have been benefited a lot. No... moreHi Mamun
the Led flash is the secondry flash for the 808 camera andbit has 3 uses:
1- Video light option...for night videos
2- Focus assistant...to help the camera get the focus in the dark situations but it didn't fire during capturing the photo
3- you can use it as night flash if the lights are off :)
but you need to know that the led can't be used for night photos, and let me remember you also that
the Xenon flash is the kind which used for the DSLR's, point as well as nokia for sure and samsung galaxy cameras, w880 Amoled 12 MP and for sure some Sony ericsson's devices like K800, C905 and Satio
-808 pureview Xenon flash is more powerful than N8's one by 2.5 times, and the N8's one is more powerful than the led flash by 10 times, so you need to imagine...the power here is not the amount of brightness only, but it includes the amount of details, noise control, thunder speed and finally the perfect white balance
If you feel that the Xenon flash produces some over bright pictures, you can do the following
1- take the suitable distance between you and your target, set the right focus
2- you can low the exposure to reduce the brightness of the photo
3- you can reduce the ISO to 50 or 100 and btw the ISO 'll not be exactly 50 or 100 but it will be around 64 and 80 which means less noise and and less brightness in your photo
You should be happy that we have the best flash in any mobile phone as well as N8, you can use it to freeze the moments, in the sunlight beside Macro shoots
hope that helped :P
Hello every one. I'm a regular reader of this site since long. I have been benefited a lot. Now I want an information regarding the use of led flash. I wanted to take photo by keeping the zenon flash off and wanted to use the light of led flash. But though led flashes it just before the photo is saved. At night photo taken by using led flash has no effect on the photo. It is absolutely dark. Do any one facing the problem? Guys what about your phone?
