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
Anonymous, 23 Jun 2012how can it be slim when its camera is bigger than anything else on terra in mobile world? how ... moreBy go burn your samsung are you referring to that pour guy's S3 that caught fire all by itself? LOL
Such a good camera phone. I have a galaxy tablet and for all the thousands of apps I hardly need or use any other than calendar and browser. This phone has so many hardware features that without all the apps it still comes up trumps. Keen!!

wow!!! nice review, i wish i had money to buy this incredible phone...so sad im belong to below average people living in hell:( Waiting for the price to drop....hehehehe
Hey you guess what,nokia is returning to smartphone market,just imagine wp8 with pureview ,that would be great!
If this phone was slim and light, I would be impressed.
But it's not. I could gaffa tape a compact to the back of my S2 and it would still be more appealing than this. Now, where's that tape?
Great Review as always.. Enjoyed reading it.. Thank you GSMArena.. :-)
why cant nokia give higher resolution screens....same old crap 640*360 ...it s***.
why cant nokia understand that simply clear black and amoled wont help them for long...n releasing same os with diffrent name wont either....nokia s***** nw
AnonD-52269, 23 Jun 2012Where is Pureview mode in Photo compare tool? Why only 38 mpix?I don't know if it was in pureview but if you change the scale that can be found below the original image, it has an option to rescale in 12, 8, 5, and 3mp... And take note when you change that you'll be blown away by the result it's the best in all the smartphone available in that option and competing with canon 5d ii...
I so so desperately want Nokia to beat the leaving hell out of Samsung....come on Nokia...Am not in hurry and willing to give Nokia one or one and a half year....Let there be Lumia pureview W8..
Awesome review. Was an absolute pleasure reading it. Although I've still got the N8, I will probably go for Note 2 in October as my next phone.
Nokia as now made a Big Gamble releasing the 808 after the man they put in charge,Mr Elop said on Febuary 11th that "Symbian is Dead" so mobile operators then decided not to Invest in Nokia phones that were not going to be Supported,Nokia an Mr Elop are not well related an All Mr Elop was used for was to be a Sales Agent for Microsoft as they needed alot of Help to somehow get the Portfolio as they couldn"t compete with Apple an there name was not so Popular,Nokia since Mr Elop chose Windows are on a Status Quo in the mobile market an are now "Down Down Deeper an Down"an now are in more trouble with the Lumias not being able be upgraded to Windows 8,O.k the N8 was popular because of its Price but the 808 will be alot more Expensive an with the Samsung S3 being around an alot thinner,the 808 will find it hard to be succesful until the price drop
drick, 23 Jun 2012well, it's seriously thick and symbian looks ancient like my 2009s 5800. it might fit for came... morenokia belle have nothing to do with your old symbian from 2009,except a few drawings in the secondary menus. but i love symbian,because all functions are in their place, where i know them for years. android is complicated and useless for hard users wich need long battery stand-by time. nokia 808 is thick because camera is huge. this is not a device for pussy
Why the hell is my tears falling when I finished reading this review?!?!
