Anonymous, 22 Jun 2012Try to compare NOKIA 808 to samsung, iphone, sony, LG, HTC etc not to DSLR because when you co... moreIt was already compared to all those smartphones and it beat them horribly. It ws compared to a bunch of point and shoots and also beat them horribly. What else do you expect iot to be compared to? The word cameraphone does not stop it from being able to compete with a dslr, its the technology within. And the pureview has some pretty high end tech.
I can't believe people like this still exist in this day and age, denying the facts even when its presented before them. This situation is very close to when people denied that the earth was round and not at the center of the universe as they were so caught up in their beliefs. The same thing is happening here. You people are using the word cameraphone like it some how limits the cameras prowess. It does not, and all the tests done here and on other sites prove that.
If there is one similarity between this phone and all other cams is that they all have cameras and on that ground they are all worthy of comparison. It just so happens that one of the better cams out there is now on a phone. No one is saying it wipes the floor with dslrs, but it comes pretty close in some situations and even beats some in others. Just accept the facts that are before and stop denying them like idiots.
Rover, 22 Jun 2012As expected, the Nokia 808 Pureview got smoked by the DSLR and the Micro Four Thirds camera.How did it get smoked? If I recall it beat them in the first few comparisons. If anything one could say its comparable and that it beats every point and shoot.
WOW, the world's best phone, this phone produces better images than professional cameras, I'm just amazed.
@rimas just like what I said DSLR is different thing to smartphone... It's just like comparing a dog to a bird... Geez... It's all about smartphone my dear rimas, not about DSLR.... ROFL =p
By the way I'm proud nokia user because only nokia technology can be compare with DLSR not iphone, not samsung, not LG, not sony, not HTC, etc... it's ONLY NOKIA... clap! clap! clap!
Speaking of cameraphone part - Nokia 808 PureView is the best one ATM.
Speaking od smartphone part - Nokia Belle is a great OS. Anyone who has held and tried a Belle phone simply couldn't say one bad thing about the OS, its performance, speed, responsivness and capabilities. So, if you genuinely want to see how Belle performs, go and test a device, don't look at the specs which mean nothing by themselves.
samsung compare to iphone - samsung toy lose!!!!
android compare to iOS - sammy crap phone a copycat!!! ROFL
why cant nokia 808 have accessories like these to compete with DSLR. why only iphone have these.
As expected, the Nokia 808 Pureview got smoked by the DSLR and the Micro Four Thirds camera.
Wow, incredible technology! Picture quality that beats a DSLR. Now imagine what this technology could do if it were implemented in a DSLR with big lenses, if it already now beats a DSLR in most circumstances with such a tiny lens.
Simply mindblowing that common people can now get DSLR+ picture quality at such a low price. And it's even pocket friendly :)
stylinred, 22 Jun 2012The best compact camera is the Canon S100 and its only got a 1/1.7" sensor (a little larg... moreWrong! The current best compact is Sony RX100 with a 1 inch sensor. Not to mention other specs which beats it hands down. Please do your research properly before posting such comments.
The DSLR reign is unaffected, make no mistake about that.
This review just shows Pureview's strengths, not DSLR's weaknesses.
I'm considering it for myself too, after the price tag softens a bit, say by 10-20%.
I do not know why they choose to do the comparison with the 8 megapixel PureView mode , the best result is at 5 megapixels PureView mode and it is also the default mode of the phone!
"Based on the 808's image samples shot in different resolutions, we discovered that one could get the best quality when shooting at the base resolution (5 megapixels)"
See for yourself

Nice comparison GSMA. By the way, please also test 5MP since oversampling is achieved best (in low light)on 5MP setting.
Looking forward to your full review.
hawx, 22 Jun 2012Yeah as the pureview is used at its maximum capacity!!it wont get any better, the canon is not... moreWhat do you mean?
Didn't the author already stated clearly?
"All cameras had their ISO setting set to automatic and flash was enabled. Each of the contenders was shot in its maximum native resolution, save for the Nokia 808, which appears twice on each set of crops - once in its full-res 38MP mode and once in the 8MP PureView mode we believe will be most frequently used."
All contenders are using automatic ISO setting same for pureview.
