Belle also allows portrait and landscape views in the homescreens.
Simple, but something that symbian has.
honestly i am more of a fandroid any and i left symbian after my horrible expreince with n97 ! - i've never looked back from then on . I was a regular gsmarena visitor but never read reviews of nokia phones except for lumia 900. Though i did'nt wish to read this either but the hype was irresistible and i decided just to read the 'final words' - and on reading i felt kinda emotional lol never felt like this before - i read the whole review again and again all i have to say is :
'Epic review gsmarena !' - once again you guys have rose to occasion and delivered tack sharp .
I currently own an s3 and was saving money for the cortex A15 quads coming later this year - but now i've decided - 808 is a rare gem to miss and i'll be buying it soon! Never even in my dreams have i though that a symbian phone could impress me to this extent !
Incorrect, belle took out the week view under calendar. Maps doesn't have the weather in more, but you can view the weather in the maps package I believe.
Wow! First of thanks to Gsmarena for there such a brilliant review it was so touchy and informative. Last night i waited til very deep night to read this review but it wasn't uploaded til 4 am. I'm a Nokia fan since very long right now using Nokia e 90 and Samsung Galaxy note. The pureview is madness looking forward to buy one.
AnonD-1082, 23 Jun 2012I wish the same, too. These Samsung Fandroids needs some good smackdown. A PureView Lumia w... moreWhere were you when quite a few Nokia phone were exploded (and even caused few life here in India) and Nokia had to take quick steps and replace batteries for most of the phones? Only one S3 out of millions exploded and you are not missing a chance to criticize Samsung. The exploded S3 is being investigated and if it is manufacturing defect, Samsung will surely take the corrective measures.
i dont need A good camera on mobile phone. I only need best operating system, support (stable software and hardware) so i can enjoy the phone every secon.
why would i buy a phone that only can take picture.
if i want a picture, i will buy $20 phone and DSLR. DSLR have more advantage than phone camera.

A PureView Lumia will beat the crap out of the over hyped SGS 3.
The only thing that the SGS 3 have over the 808 is the exploding battery.
Oh, wait! It's not an advantage, it's a defect of the SGS 3.
falesh, 23 Jun 2012why cant nokia give higher resolution screens....same old crap 640*360 ...it s***.

All Nokia have done is shoe-horn a massive sensor into an outdated device and add some oversampling. If they had used some new sort of liquid lens I would have been impressed. Come on Nokia. Whats next, the Pure Shave 10-2-9 for when you're late for work?
There is another issue with the photo gallery of 808, its only in portrait mode, no landscape view
I have never read this much long review of any phone in my life. It's all because of the 808 hype. Amazing review by GSMArena..hats off to them. At the end of the review I actually felt like a movie with beautiful touching end lol. I wasn't maintaining any interest in Nokia phones since many years but this phone really seized my attention. I don't know but somehow I really hate apple iphone and by 808, Nokia slapped them really hard saying 'What if we are old, we are the best and back with a bang'. Kudos!
Definitely looking forward to get 808 asap. :D
Samsung is gone, because 808 is come, its a amazing phone I like very much nokia
one word. INNOVATION.
best camera phone period. being an owner of the Samsung galaxy s3(my first android phone) its amusing to read the comments from other Samsung owners. Why so defensive? is it because the two devices cost about the same and now you see the virtue of pureview? you already bought your phone. deal with it. don't trash it because of nonsense. read the review. it'll blow your mind. I'm pretty sure it was written by an android user.
looking forward to a pureview lumia
