Symbian is still my number one OS choice. Android is more advanced OS than Symbian for me but it's a lil bit complicated.
ahmed, 25 Jun 2012the photos of galaxy 3 better than nokia 808 in colors and brightness everybody look at the p... moreUmm no it doesn't. You are falling victim to over saturation and excessive exposure. If the sgs3 had better colors and brightness than the 808 then it would have to also have better colors and brightness than the dslr and 4/3srds since both the 808 , 4/rds and dslr have the same color reproduction and brightness one would think it would be obvious that the s3's colors and brightness are way off.
I've said it before and I'll say it again...
Without carrier subsidy, this phone will sink without a trace...
It's not subsidised in U.S., not available on any UK carrier.. simply no market presence...
You know, I'd have taken a punt with it for 12 months had it been subsidised... but come on, £450? without contract? Simply not an option for 99% of the population in the middle of a recession... especially when you can get the HTC One X, Xperia S and GS3 all FREE with a decent contract...
It's a shame, but it'll go down in history as a prototype device, nothing more...

everybody look at the photos in the review to see with himself
Nokia can put out a 100 megapixel camera but nobody will care as long as it runs an outdated OS.
To all haters: this phone has slowest CPU on the market of new phones, and fastest camera with processing image over quad-core android monsters, that are still slow. Miracle? No, just proper use of cpu power.
Where this android race for multi-core phones is going, when Android OS itself, does NOT use more than single core? (according to intel investigation).
So, you all are just victims of samsung, htc and lg marketing.
Is now the best phone in the world
lol eric fail galaxy s3 - 808 review page got to more than 300 comments within just 2 days !
well, sybian^3 and anna were epic failures but i gotta say belle is just awesome, fluid,fast and haters please dont talk about stuff without experiencing them.. even the gsmarena team who always were symbian haters says its pretty good and stuff.. the only problem is the lack of app support :) cheers

GSM Arena, thanks for this wonderful review
AnonD-58791, 25 Jun 2012everything is boring on this phone except camera...@salmonella: i got bored with your comments too... (zzz....)
I have the Nokia 808 yesterday. My dad brought it for me. The camera are impressive than my Nikon 3100D.
everything is boring on this phone except camera...
@ GSM Arena Staff:
Guys, you covered the camera is such detail, but you hardly gave an insight into Dolby's music quality??
O God, what is it?
And how are we supposed to know what effects it gives to the music?
Is it similar to Stereo widening on the N8, or different?
all is super with this mobile,but one fact is obssessive for me: scratches appers after only a few days on the camera unit glossy chrome surface, on the left side of the camera, in the point of contact with the surface you put it on. the only solution is the nokia plastic case wich protects all th back including camera unit, but the mobile becomes incedible bulky, like a mobile from 1997
i want to see instagram on symbian! :) this phone is what i need! i dont really want thousands of apps but its quality are questionable!
or if nokia will make a WP pureview and instagram will write its app on WP then i will be really happy!
but im scared to put my money on WP what if WP8 devices wont support the next version of WP like what they did to the WP7/7.5! well atleast im gonna be happy to see pureview tech!
It is just funny how the Droid/Apple fanboys are bashing Nokia.....like Nokia is dead and Symbian is a dead OS. I would say for a dead os this Symbian device killed all other camera phones! And people just STOP making points like the cpu is old we now have quadcore phones.....if a phone/os can run smooth on a 1,3ghz single core os than why bash it? The Pureview runs smooth with a 1,3GHZ single core cpu this phone can make great pictures and just compare the 1080p video recording with the 1080p video of the SGS 3 or ipnone 4s.......the Pureview kills those phones.
And please don't say that Symbian os is behind Android or ios.... is just not behind, it can do more than these 2 os's
People now will say i am a Nokia fanboy....i use ios/meego/Androis ics and Symbian.
I would Android is not al that and i don't think that is the best os.
I like the smoothnes of ios but the lack of features and capability's i don't like it that much.
Symbian is a great os, people who bash it did not used Symbian the past 2 years. Al they talk is about Symbian 60......open your yes Symbian Belle is a great os.
And for Meego......it is a awsome os... it still love it!
I finally made the move from my N8 to sony xperia S 2 months ago. i collected a wealth of family and friends moments on my N8 in good clarity. They say the best point and shoot is the one thats always with you , in my case my N8 ;-).
With the last update to Belle , the N8 really became a breeze to use with the drop down notification menu. Daily tasks became easy to do.
And holding a solid aluminium phone felt right , still feels right.
The Xperia S is my daily driver for now. photos on this are not as good as N8 , but still quite good.
Maybe pureview and windows phone 8 , will make perfect sense in a year or two.
