IROCU, 23 Jun 2012All Nokia have done is shoe-horn a massive sensor into an outdated device and add some oversam... moreso this is what you realy mean: "Im so desperately jealous because my latest high-end phone has no PureView"...LOL...
Samsung s3 review have 30 + comments.
Nokia 808 PureView review have 180 + comments!!
It still does not say who the better phones, but it does say who is more interesting.
This phone makes me want to be a photographer. Just bought a new phone ):
I sell it and buy this amazing Nokia 808 PureVie phone.
Anonymous, 23 Jun 2012i dont need A good camera on mobile phone. I only need best operating system, support (stable ... moreoh come on...buy 2 Nokia 808PV instead of a more expensive DSLR...keep one for you & give one as a gift for your special someone....a great value for your money, isnt it?..plus, you make someone happy...
aaptk, 23 Jun 2012heck, it seems everyone has a dslr all of the sudden...
why dont you throw away your s2 and c... moreI have one too:). Let me tell you why a DSLR cannot be replaced by 808.
Zoom. ISO. 3D illusion due to localized focus.
norbi, 23 Jun 2012The camera is amazing, but I won't sell my S2 for this. For pro photos I use my DSLR.
But nok... moreheck, it seems everyone has a dslr all of the sudden...
why dont you throw away your s2 and carry a laptop, it's much better
The camera is speechless! wow!
But...... others than camera, it got nothing.
The OS - Belle (still from Symbian) is a MAJOR STEP DOWN... and the screen resolution is OMG! Also the phone is way too bulky.
Big evil tech giant Sumsang steps on Nokias toes. Nokia kicks it to a very deep hole and roars: THIS IS NOKIA!!
Something like that came to my mind after reading that last line. Almost epic, GSMA, almost epic.
BTW, it's funny to watch the battle of popularity between SGS3 and 808 here in GSMA. There have been lots of reviews of both and they are absolutely attention grabbers. Other is one of the greatest inventions in the smartphone world and other is years biggest cash magnet with awesome spec sheet but barely nothing revolutionary. Guess which is which. Some day, Nokia will rise again with WP8 and PureView, and they will also come up with some other great things like PureView.
The camera is amazing, but I won't sell my S2 for this. For pro photos I use my DSLR.
But nokia did a good job.
Love you Nokia. U didn't enter the race of android phones and stick to your own OS and join WP phones with ur own conditions to integrate maps etc. Here comes a master piece in terms of camera plus a veryyyyyy friendly and fast OS belle. Now with WP8 8mm thin polycarbonate unibody phone with dual core and pureview master piece plzz make everyone feel embarrass y they left U when U didn't them. 808 is not a smart phone. It is indeed a super phone.
I can no longer trust pcmag or cnet. the apple bias are wayt too evident. they said that the iphone4s has a better camera!!! n8 beats all other cameraphones. 808 beats n8. why the bias?
amazing!.. that's how you end a review. impressive GSMARENA!... i havent seen any reviews like this.
the final words marked...
nekko, 23 Jun 2012184 dpi is enough even your hdtv tops at 100 dpi.. Small hd screens just suck batteries.. What... moreI'm using a Galaxy Note (and a N8): without wifi, the phone works without problems 2 days with a quite heavy use (when wifi is activated, it searches networks and it eats the battery in less than one day).
And pixel density matters when it comes to read text!
For 50 euro it might sell well;). I just got today my blue SGS 3 so I hope the 8 MPix camera will work fine the coming holiday. Nokia will go bankrupt because it did not listen what ppl want. From hero to zero!
Anonymous, 23 Jun 2012Because of the Nokia PV 808 my daily dose of GSMA has increased 10 folds. lol
I've read the r... morethat makes the two of us my friend.haha.
I really miss the FM transmitter feature. Guess that made into reason #42 why I should buy this phone !
Gerhman, 23 Jun 2012O and why would we care about if its pixel density isn't as high as the competition? All that ... morePixel density is perhaps the only one point which makes me hesitate to buy a 808. When you try to read text, you can't read if the text isn't magnified to a quite high level... and there is few text on the screen.
The reflow feature will probably help, but, yes, the pixel density does matter (N8 and Galaxy Note user).
