Why the hell is my tears falling when I finished reading this review?!?!
This review was perfect.
Thanks for the honest review :)
well, it's seriously thick and symbian looks ancient like my 2009s 5800. it might fit for camera geek who brought man purse anywhere or maybe symbian/nokia fan ,but casual user can just consider other high end phones and still save some money.
Where is Pureview mode in Photo compare tool? Why only 38 mpix?
First, I would like to thank GSMarena for being so informative and fair. You can seldom find a person who loves gadgets and computers and is good in writing. And seldom will you find someone so good in literature and is very good in technology. Like a language loving man oftentimes is dumb in mathematics. But hey, you never faildd me, i trusted you most of the time. This review was what i was waiting for. Like how i waited for the N9 review. 808 deserves such an awesome piece of criticism. And you deserve to review the 808. To add to that, you deserve to be appreciated because of this review. You guys have to admit that there are only a few opportunities that you guys can really really outshine other sites though i had always been loyal to your reviews. And most of those opportunities come with nokia once in a lifetime phones. Kudos gsmarena. God bless pureview and nokia. This should be featured in the TIMES!
[deleted post]you are writing like a stupid baboon
this mobile is not dual core . is dual cpu. it have a totally separate dedicated cpu for video processing like dvd recorders for home use. this is above all you can imagine,nothing on market can compare with this image monster. symbian have nothing to do here,it could be a series 40 or 30 device
AnonD-44698, 23 Jun 2012buy a new laptop...Point I was making there was how well a resource efficient OS can manage with low processing power. Playing the stuff on a single core RISC 1.3Ghz CPU better than a 2.4Ghz dual core CISC is really a thing.
I don't know whether to laugh at your comment.. lmao I say something about some awesome work and what I get in return, a lame advice? Didn't I say that one was my OLD LAPTOP? That means I have a new one as well. Go drench into pureview madness before you go trolling. Don't try to add nonsense here.
almost an year with android and i can surely say apps dont really matter that much, atleast to me..good browser and video and audio playback, maps and yes a few important apps but not that symbian doesn't have any of it...if i could, id gladly swap my phone for this
There are mistakes in the review:
1. You mentioned only 4:3 modes, not 16:9 modes, like 34 MP. Similarly, you mentioned it as 38 mp overall.
In short you ignored the dual aspect lens.
2. Accd. to Nokia, its expandable "UPTO" 48 GB and not 32...
But I'm liking this phone. Will get it when it becomes slightly cheaper...
As of now, it costs almost double of N8, despite all the stuff packed into it.
N8'c price: Rs. 17,000
808's price: Rs. 32,000
will take it when it gets to Rs. 25k-28k.
are you certain you cant drag and drop apps to folders? because I can do that in Belle on my N8.. its a bit tricky for the device to detect that you want to drop the app into the folder rather than to place the app in the position the folder is taking up though but you can
edit: whoops sorry I was thinking of Anna yeah they took that out in Belle I guess because it was difficult to do
GSMarena. Thanks for the review. But where is the battery test?
The 'metal like' buttons are actually aluminum buttons
Because of this review i started to think should I buy this Nokia 808. Looks like Symbian isn't that dead after all.
Please test the 3.5mm Audio Video stereo headphone out for Standard Definition.
An awesome review GSMArena! Hats off!
While it is true that today's market is app-driven, I really hope that people get smart! THIS is innovation in the truest sense! NO OTHER company provides such top-notch all-round connectivity and hardware features - a wide network support, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, USB-OTG, FM Transmitter, HDMI-out, a really good music output, and of course, the best imaging experience.
Email and calender-syncing was always available. And with MS Office apps, everything is covered! WHAT MORE do people want?! Sure, do go ahead and buy iPads & Galaxy Tabs to play games and for a richer internet experience. But as a smartPHONE, the 808 is really up there! Think about it!
Did anybody notice that the Pureview supports video playback in ALL formats? Even DTS and AC3 which even android can't.
What amazes me the most is the sheer capability of symbian. Whoa! it manages to play those 1080p MKVs on a single core 1.3gHz!! That's like pulling a train not with a locomotive but with horses. Even my old laptop's core2duo struggles to play this.
I'm pretty sure that this phone will come through battery test with flying colors. It's been so long since I saw a symbian being battery tested.
