O and why would we care about if its pixel density isn't as high as the competition? All that matters is if the density causes the screen to look bad, something you didn't you say. Actually if a lower ppi doesn't look worse it's actually much better because it uses less power and larger pixels would be less prone to leak. That is a pathetic part of the review and some people will even take it to heart even though it means nothing and then have something against this device.
I mean the screen actually came out on top of the outdoor legibly test something other Nokias with higher ppi also Clearbacks couldn't do.
You could also have mentioned that you can actually get very good calculators fr free on the Nokia Store.
I'd also just like to mention that I am a developer and I only develop for Symbian(and a bit Meego) mostly because of Qt.
The way this article was signed off was excellent. Madness?? This is Nokia... and I own a Nokia Symbian phone...
Awesome review befitting to a legendary phone . D pureview 808 has no match . .wat a niche device!
I'm buying this phone as soon as the stocks in stores are replenished. Which I hope happens ASAP. Right now the stocks are pretty much empty everywhere. Especially there are no white ones, which is the colour that I want.
Great review for a unique phone.But considering nokia's attempts to destroy symbian faster than we expected, i'd prefer to buy an android phone,sorry nokia but you can't support even your newest lumia.But i will still keep my 701, it's the best i have ever had.
best review done in GSMARENA so far..
i was about to leave symbian for wp.. but i miss symbian, the real matured OS.. you cannot find cons except for apps and its ecosystem..
long live symbian
The phone is not made from plastic like the cheap Galaxy S3 this phone is made from coated polycarbonate
You have just nailed it in the review...I really can't comment on 808 since I have not even had a personal time with it...but boy....your article just took me to a tour...great style of writing. Great review for a great phone....
- Symbian fanatic (mad men)
Join the madness. I've been a faithful nokia fan for years. Especially the infamous nseries. N95 n96 n97 n900 n9 2690 and now 808. I didnt get the n8 because I wanted to replace my n900. Believe what you may but I have updated all my phones and all work quite fluidly except my n900 whose screen is cracked. :-( I want a pureview lumia. Sorry android fans. I haven't been using my gs3 that much. My brother has it now. I wont even touch apple. I'm mad. I'm nokia
everything about symbian and nokia user interface is ugly haha no offense to nokia fans.. the home and widgets are ugly, the notification looks ugly, app drawer very basic,etc etc... the camera is really on the top, but why would i prefer that if it causes your phone's design bulky and ugly. the design was really ugly, looks similar to their old phones, why did nokia do such?> :D oh my god, i cant imagine myself holding that and my seatmates have ss galaxy s3, htc onex, lg4xhd, sony xperia s and iphone5.. shame on me haha
Very well done GSMarena! This phone needed recognition from a trusted source... your review is the needed stamp of approval.
This phone represents real innovation..
Anonymous, 23 Jun 2012lol if you want to support nokia, buy now!I'll be using my 13th month allowance for this phone. :-)
this mobile has only one disadvantage for me:
- The phone is quite bulky and heavy
and this is a BIG disadvantage. maybe a no-go.
I got mine about a week ago from Singapore, as its not sanctioned in Australia unfortunately. I must say this is the best Nokia i have ever had, and after comparing it to SGS,IP and HTCx, im glad i went with it. Not that theres anything wrong with the former, its just that the 808 suited me down to the ground.. I dont have any problems with Belle, its can hold its own ground. There is no perfect UI. Even Lumia has its drawbacks, mainly features.
The 808 sure makes me feel special, at least in the eyes of those who i show it too.. "just wow" ..says it all. Beats me why Elop restricted its release to Global markets and also not allow Carriers to stock it.. ? Crazy marketing.. !!
