AnonD-52738, 24 Jun 2012S3 hardware part is well known, what the point I repeat here.
Everyone know it is the most ... morebah, nokia lumia 900 on lte destroys the s3 in browsing.
can you imagine what a dual core wp8 phone will do?
i guess s3 will be remembered only as being slightly faster than s2 and slightly slower than s4. reading the gsmarena review, it seems all that power goes only on eye-candy, because there are no games and apps that utilize quad core.
again, its a powerful phone, but the way it delivers is far from stelar. other platforms on single core put this phone to shame
AnonD-52738, 24 Jun 2012Slimmer fit perfectly in pocket than bulky.
Also I never denied Nokia 808PV camera is fanta... moreBut what's wrong with Belle OS if PV technology was successfully implemented into it??
i know, the phone's processing power is enough for it.....Is it the UI, apps, or other hardware: screen, size, etc. that makes it unsuitable?...or perhaps the OS is deemed to die soon?...well, i think it was just an announcement that nokia made..but maybe they are not sure...2016 is still far far away..lol..things may change...& N808PV is a part of that change...still struggling...haha...anyway, we call it a healthy competition...
808PV will be much a better phone if only it is at least a 800x480 resolution (640x360 is too low for now).
And importantly don't use Belle OS. I know Nokia won't use Android, at least Nokia don't stop Meego, or at least tide this with Windows Phone.
Also, Nokia is design gorgeously in all LUMIA series, but this 808PV is just way too ugly the overall look, it don't even have LUMIA outstanding look.
Sausage, 24 Jun 2012Well, that sounds great but how many of those aren't in cheaper ICS devices? How many are grea... moreIf you really want to compare like this.
I can only said 808PV is a middle range phone (because the spec wise is not high end enough for now except the camera itself only) with FANTASTIC CAMERA.
Hardware part is nothing to compare and how could you compare with cheap ICS Android devide. Those low end Android device is something I also can't accept as it can power up the Android functionality and performance in proper.
S3 hardware part is well known, what the point I repeat here.
Everyone know it is the most faster phone at the moment. No phone is able to beat it performance at the moment. It even faster than Asus transformer prime tablet. Probably only HTC One XL that release in certain country only that beat certain score, but not all, browsing performance wise is a big tag different. Nothing is beatable at the moment for phone.
The camera is true same 8MP, but it is a well update from S II, well know it use same sensor in iPhone4s which manufacture by Sony. A good camera is not means high megapixel will be better. (Don't get me wrong here, Nokia is doing a great high MP and fantastic camera quality in this 808PV).
Even though the screen is only pentile, but is 1280x720 resolution with high ppi serving a great viewing, it is much better and nicer than S II. Higher resolution make everything perfect look and better for browsing. This is somewhat Nokia shall not continue using 640 x360 resolution in this new 808PV.
Slimmer fit perfectly in pocket than bulky.
Also I never denied Nokia 808PV camera is fantastic gorgeous! That why I said previously this phone is great on camera.
But remember this, great hardware must tide with great OS. Belle is not a great OS. I rather this 808PV came with Windows Phone than this Belle.
AnonD-52738, 24 Jun 2012I cannot tell? Even I tell you also reject everything, so what the point I tell to Nokia fans.... morewow...you are a good writer man....i believe you, SGS3 is such a monster phone...nothing can withstand its Multimedia capabilities & processing power...we can't compare it right now with N808PV since it is not out yet globally...we'll see in the near future about how its performance fares with SGS3 & other phones...
I have to say that you point out the strengths of SGS3 objectively which i really commend. But you listed more on the software part which could be implemented on any OS through updates & apps unless patented by samsung or other developers.
The main reason why we are here is to see a one of a kind Innovation which nokia had created, the pureview technology..It integrates both hardware(41MP sensor) & software(oversampling tech). Though we can say, taking pictures & videos are not a big deal...yes, its true..but this is something new & very interesting...& can make you stand out if you have this phone...
on the other hand, processing & browsing speed have already been addressed and brought by many phone manufacturers. & up to the present, they are still competing on the same thing..oh come on..how fast is fast...time will come that there won't be any difference anymore...everything will be the same...
PS. SGS3 is an awesome phone..it's unbeatable in most areas, i admit...i envy you for having it...well, i hope you won't be angry by my comments..I'm not really into comparing phones, I just want to know how the new nokia phone & its new tech could fit into my needs....
For me camera and audio quality are the most important features of a phone. Because I don't want to wear 3 devices. The better the camera and audio player - the more attractive the phone. Apps don't interest me at all, cause I don't waste my short life for games. As such, nearly matching the quality of a 1800 EUR camera this is the perfect phone for me. Only wished Nokia could add FLAC support
AnonD-52738, 24 Jun 2012I cannot tell? Even I tell you also reject everything, so what the point I tell to Nokia fans.... moreWell, that sounds great but how many of those aren't in cheaper ICS devices? How many are great only in fandroids eyes? How much did you pay for your SGS3? How big is your pocket, cause you don't complain about it's size? You may say 808 is bulky but it's not too wide and tall to fit in pocket and it's still not too chubby to fit there. And if you don't like it you don't have to buy it. Nokia has said that it's not phone for everyone. Like somebody already said it's CAMERAphone for pros. Not toy for teens.
AnonD-52738, 24 Jun 2012I cannot tell? Even I tell you also reject everything, so what the point I tell to Nokia fans.... moreso from a hardware point of view, s3 brings nothing new.
yep, i thought so. all of the things you mentioned can be used on s2 with 3rd party apps
ive compared the s3 with a wp lumia
the ui of the wp is far smoother and browsing is similar in speed. how sad that the 4 cores are not used properly.
maybe if android evolves enough to use that power, it will be good.
its a joke seeing single core phones perform better than dual even quad core androids. but hey, youll always have benchmarks to justify your purchase lol
Andrew tan,why are u so bitter..
Millions will buy ur S3 and millions will buy PUREVIEW as well
AnonD-3575, 24 Jun 2012yes, you see
you owned a s2 and now s3 but cant say what the s3 brings
yes its slightly fast... moreI cannot tell? Even I tell you also reject everything, so what the point I tell to Nokia fans.
Anyway, if you want to know how impress there are, here is my review (if bad I will said bad, I won't said everything in S3 is great, at least the S-Voice is not so great).
- Battery life is great, at least it was better a lot than my previous SII-G.
- The bundle headset is the 1st headset I can accept, it sound good. I never can accept any phone bundle headset before.
- The music player not only gorgeous look but extreme great functioning! The "Music Square" where you can drag your song to be more exciting, passionate, joyful and calm.. base on your selection mood... and then it will generate a playlist base on your song available in your phone according to your mood listening is working awesome. SoundAlive auto set sound setting (pop, rock or whatever) base on your playback song is working perfect, I try few different type song and it really work as I set it as rock and some song is same when choose auto and rock, but when playing soft song, then it is different, this proof the SoundAlive - auto is working.
- The video player is the best so far in the market! Now I feel I am wasting money on my previous purchase of MX Video and Dice Player, as I not needed anymore now.
- The 8 burst shot with function of selecting the best shot for you is awesome and working flawlessly. Another 20 burst shot is amazing!
- Video record is stunning! I love it 1080P video record.
- Direct Call - this is one of the best feature that not to miss, it really helping you direct calling the person you half way SMS by only sliding your phone to ear.
- Stay Awake - Now I no longer worried phone turn off when surfing internet, play games, reading novel and etc.
- Browsing speed is extremely fast, I never seen any phone can browse internet that fast before, it is confirm loading much much faster than iPhone4s.
- Screen is finger print & dusk free, loving it less finger print issue. Now my phone always clean.
- S Voice - this is working but not so accurate, and highly recommended disable the wake up command and don't use it, as it will randomly restart your launcher once you on it until next reboot.
- The new TouchWiz is the best ever did by Samsung, it was good, but I still prefer and highly recommended using Nova Launcher Prime, which more on customization, speed and stable
- Performance wise is unbeatable fast! after using custom kernel is much robust now!
Don't denied on Symbian, is it pure dead where Nokia also plan on abandon itself. Nokia out MeeGo and is a survive point for Nokia, but Nokia abandon it as well, and pick Windows Phone... So basically Nokia want to be a head of phone market, possibility is pretty low now.
AnonD-52738, 24 Jun 2012I am S2-G owner, that G version out of the box, is not stable until ICS update. I don't denied... moreyes, you see
you owned a s2 and now s3 but cant say what the s3 brings
yes its slightly faster and has a bigger screen but there will come a point where screen sizes cannot rise anymore. so what will s4 bring?
i dont understand how belle is a dead os. it works, will receive more support than even the most expensive android and still has apps coming in the store.
will you s3 get updates in 2016? doubt it.
p.s. nokia maps can download entire countries, not small areas in cache. and its way more detailed than any other map

what can you do wit... moreI am S2-G owner, that G version out of the box, is not stable until ICS update. I don't denied this.
S3 is better than S2 (don't said that hanging issue)... S3 browsing is crazy fast, it load page faster than any phone I ever seen or use.
The camera is as gorgeous as iPhone4S - shutter lag free. I know this 808PV camera is outstanding, but consider it bulky, it is not a well design for phone. It just way to bulky.
Also those simple but really useful function of smart stay and direct call. This two features is an innovation design for phone. Turning on both does not consume a lot of battery life and S III battery life is great enough for daily use.
Sorry for not look carefully you talk on FM transmit.
As for offline map, Google also start mention will capable on offline map.
The most important, you get most what you need if the OS is active... Bella or any symbian is dead OS for now.
Also the resolution that low, browsing experience is bad on such small resolution.
AnonD-52738, 24 Jun 2012You must be never touch Android before!
No offline maps? Hahaha! They is plenty offline map... moreplease read carefully

what can you do with s3 thats so much better than s2?
fyi, i do own and use an android phone with a ics custom rom
AnonD-3575, 24 Jun 2012not to mention your s3 cannot use offline free gps, play music on any radio, shoot pictures in... moreYou must be never touch Android before!
No offline maps? Hahaha! They is plenty offline maps (in 3D view some more) for Android.
Also, S3 have FM radio as well, and S3 is not just slightly update from S2.
I from S2 previously, and now using S3, I can surely confirm the changes is not little. ;)
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2012a laptop will do all those things better, faster and easier,
if s3+ipad can replace a lapto... moreNokia 808PV is for enthusiast Nokia fans only, it is not pro, because the OS..... already push it to back..
Also such bulky & quite ugly design..... how many will eye on it. Time will tell. :)
