i bought one and Singapore and i couldnt be happier. i also have an iphone 4S, but when it comes to taking pictures, nothing beats the new KING of camphones.
amazin review GSM arena, really informative, detailed and easy to understand! i take my hat of!
808 really looks good, i never espected symbian to look that snapy, and it is a complete multimedia phone, just needs some adjusts in the video and media player and we are done.
congratulations to nokia, you proved to the world what innovation is about.
great review. All that i cant understand is, why kill this platform.
Blown away both by the review and the phone. Earlier I was planning for sony Xperia S but now will buy this one as it costs only 4000 bucks more than the Xperia in India. Rs 4000 = $ 70
Besides I am not buying a phone for gaming, I already have xbox for that.
[deleted post]Welcome back Madman! Cheers!
Im also joining this Nokia Madness. Yipee! waiting or my 808!
too bad....gsmarena u forgot to mention ....that whether we can search music in music player of purview 808 or not......like n8 doesn't have this option.....
Nokia, phones for mad people,pure madness yes...and that`s the way we like it!.
Nokia connecting mad people :)
hats off to the reviewer
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
Excellent review. Very nicely written. Pleasure to read.
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....

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
