After read P30 review, back to here, and i think nokia 808 stil best image. Look at 40 Mp, nokia 808 look natural without oversharpening.
GSMArena definitely needs to do a new article comparing this beast to the new big camera phones of today.
BEST CAMERA-PHONE TILL TODAY 
I managed to develop such workflow, from which i can easily achieve crispy clear 3000x2000 files, without any noise. Of course only in daylight.
Despite the fact, that camera uses FSI sensor it is the biggest till today , even bigger, then in shiny new Huawei P20.
I am in a bit high mood, so I even can share the whole process with all of you.
-1) convert image to 16bit mode
0) Crop extreme borders to throw away blurry corners
1) Apply delicate noise reduction
2) Resize with sharpening to 3000x2000
3) 2-nd pass noise reduction
4) Apply contrast curve
5) Do color processing
6) Apply selective sharpening
Such processing easily outflank cheap image computing from any “modern” device.
Mobile algorithms are optimized for power consumption, so they are not precise, as desktop ones. So dump your iPhoneX, Google P2 to garbage bin.
One more thing, I use hacked camera app with increased effective resolution from 38 to 41.5 mpix. Maximum file size 35Mb. The beauty of N808 is that it provides images in whopping resolution and there is ability to substantially increase output quality. So files are ready for processing. Raw is not needed. What’s the point of it? If you have barely visible sensor.
Here is sample link for your enjoyment. Some random pix from goldie N808.
First 30 pix or so. Full sized images available.
From above mentioned statements I could approximate, that P20 will have nearly N808 quality or maybe the same, but definitely not significantly better. So, guys, 2012 tech is still on the top. Believe it or not. Enjoy computing.
AnonD-50654, 22 Jun 2012One of the best reviews I read in a loooooong time . Looks like you were quite impressed with ... moreNow symbian is gone, Android and iOS rule the market, and Nokia has subdued to Android, making it's own launcher. What the world has come to...

I still use my 808 as my primary phone every day. It's fantastic. The Nokia store sucks, but I now have a Galaxy tablet for the power-user stuff... so as a phone, camera, navigation device and whatsapp messenger, all these in combination, it still kicks ass. Fantastic device still after almost 2 years and more than 6000 photos. It's very sturdy and everything still works.

I just bought nokia 808 but im having a problem downloading like whatsapp it says its not surported
Marek, 14 Aug 2012Pity this great PureView technology, even if incorporated into WP 8 phones, will be kind of de... morei really dont get why people keep calling symbian outdated.. well its browser is outdated (im looking at you opera, bring your new browser to symbian, you dont have a market on android) and its ecosystem is also a bit outdated coz nokia fail to support devs and devs dont support symbian..but symbian is still flexible and can do what can this android do (coz i really see that android is the only competition of symbian, they're both very customizable but still symbian beat it in terms of hardware coz symbian is fluid with an outdated hardware while android cant do that)
all out WP is a big mistake! nokia should have MeeGo and Symbian live! symbian for low end (ditch the S40 dumbphones and make a real ASHA SMARTPHONES WITH SYMBIAN BELLE) and MeeGo for higher Mid Range to high end and flagship!! look at samsung, they are prepping their own OS coz they (i think) also realize that android is enjoying its spot right now and its not healthy for the competition!
i just hope Nokia will come to their senses and develop symbian and support MeeGo (even though jolla has them, nokia should buy them, i really found jolla's sailfish UI a bit of misleading and annoying (same goes with ubuntu i think only blackberry 10 get the swipe UI easily to understand), while the swipe UI of MeeGo N9 is innovative and simple, everyone can easily understand how MeeGo works...
so nokia, if you want to stay relevant, go for meego and symbian not WP and S40!
