Awesome phone!!>..... Belle runs lag-free and there are still 75k apps in nokia store and devs will create apps for this device as it is a niche device.. Symbian will recieve some apps from devs thanks to this device....
This is the best cameraphone I ever bought. I'm using it as a camera, with built in internet capability and GPS. Awesome.

Forgive the camwhoring, it was inevitable. LOL
808 Macro 5 Mpix zoom. Close enough?
I still dont get it. I do accept that n8 had a good 12mp camera. But you cannot deny the fact that a s3 or a 4s 8mp camera is better. The resolution matters. If you want to judge a phone by its camera,then its better to invest in a digital camera rather than a smart phone. Nokia N8 was the last nokia smart phone in that range which was a hit. Nokia E7,Nokia Lumia was a flop. Statistics prove that if people generaly buy an expensive phone,they generaly invest in Samsung & Apple. But as of late Samsung sales have broken all records. But i really want this Nokia gadget to reach new milestones.
I am officially not fighting with anyone,but I am saving for Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
And i hope my grammar was gud enough for the person who claims himself to be 'JESUS'
But please someone inform me about the release date of this nokia gadget
alex, 30 Jun 2012Frankly speaking da camera is gona b d plus point fr d fone. Bt if v are 2 focus on its 41mp ... moreBuddy, with that grammar your arguments will always be invalid. I'm saving up for this phone, as my n8 is slowly dieing on me. There are users (like me) who don't get moist seeing all that crap in app stores.
nobody!!, 02 Jul 2012go buy a camera instead of buying this bulky shit .. that will serve u better ...Why you recommend camera if thickness is main thing for you? There is no camera this thin and 808 even beats most p&s cameras with ease and there is no need for carrying two devices all the time. I think this is very good buy for one who is active and like taking photos. There is no way that one would always have camera when it is needed. This is almost always with you.
And 808 shouldn't be compared to high end phones, cause it's not high end. It's mid range device and camera in one and makes it cheaper if compared to same quality phones and cameras.
macoi, 01 Jul 2012i'm not against android or ios or any os. but its unfair to compare 808, the god of cameraphon... morego buy a camera instead of buying this bulky shit .. that will serve u better ...
808 PureView’s continuous autofocus and lossless zoom demo during video capture.
i'm not against android or ios or any os. but its unfair to compare 808, the god of cameraphones , with other phones. 808 is in a league of its own. i know the main reason for all these bashing though, everyone snaps on 808 because their so called high end smartphones with "advanced cameras"'s ego is busted. i think nokia released 808 as a test product thats why it isnt that much advertised, to see how people will respond, but as planned nokia will bring pureview tech to lumia range. and the lumia pureview will absolutely be a hit. an iphone slayer indeed. you see? people loved loved pureview even if it has low res screen, thick body, and one core. can you imagine the support the lumia pureview will get? for sure, lumia pureview will have wp8 out of the box, meaning it will sport dual or quad core, and windows only supports screen of wvga or higher res... oh my god! lumia pureview will be the phone to be afraid of! samsung, apple, and htc must be trembling with fear now.
alex, 30 Jun 2012Frankly speaking da camera is gona b d plus point fr d fone. Bt if v are 2 focus on its 41mp ... moreWell well, my friend, what do you call a new idea?
Releasing quad cores, that feel threatened by a single core phone(coz the single core one does most of the job those quad cores do)?
OR new idea means including 1(even 2) gigs of ram with dedicated graphics and still not able to break record of maximum number of running apps in a phone(74) using only 256 mb of ram and that too without dedicated graphics? (and he says "multi-taskin wnt b dat fast")
"as a smartphone,nokia is way behind samsung & apple"
well i can do copy and paste, have one of the best files manager(considering stock file managers), have one of the most easiest user interfaces available(you find everything were they should actually be), is the most optimized os(well it can record 1080p videos which are best in industry with just single core processor and half a gigs of ram) which are better than those quad cores.
Well, you can tell me what symbian does not have compared to android and iphone and we will see which one is better.
And thats not all Nokia N8 is still the best camera phone as far as photography is considered(iphone and android are still trying to catch up with it even after 2 years of N8).
Frankly speaking da camera is gona b d plus point fr d fone. Bt if v are 2 focus on its 41mp camera,dn y dnt v buy a camera of sony or nikkon....?
as a smartphone,nokia is way behind samsung & apple. Symbian needs 2 go,nd android os needs 2 b introduced.
besides da ram is poor,it is using a single core processor instead of a quad core processor.
multi-taskin wnt b dat fast.
In short Its a high range fone whch has les 2 offer. It was a gud attempt by focusing on the camera,bt NOKIA needs 2 cum up wid mre ideas if it has cum in the level of other smart-fones.
Adamant, 28 Jun 2012How can enjoy videos & photos with that low resolution screen?Everyday use means the smoot... moreI really enjoy watching videos with N8. PV and N8 don't have too much different in terms of resolution. It is actually good enough though not the best.
I can capture high definition video and image without loosing any details and view it at my dekstop if needed. But i cannot do it with any other phone in the market. Pls don't tell me to bring a bulky DSLR to everywhere i go.
I think Belle is really smooth and user friendly already. Have you personally try it before you comment? Can share to me which part of belle is not smooth or user friendly?
I don't need those cool effects that Androids & IPhones have. What is it for? To me those are not really helping me or practical in my daily usage.
I have enough apps on my N8, i don't think i have miss out any "cool" apps that are really "useful".
Well i will go for "useful" apps instead of "cool" but not so useful.
True that i dont buy a cellphone because of the camera. I buy N8 and going to buy PV for lots of features that i needed and i cannot find on other phones like i mentioned in my previous post.
I think Nokia have did what they suppose to do with PV. I agree with you that higher resolution screen is better. But i can live without it as long as it can play 1080p videos.
Again, i don't think Belle is any where near to outdated. It is just lack of "cool" but not really that useful apps.
That was detailed long review. Here is a quick one page review http://pickadvice.com/nokia-808-pureview-41-megapixel-camera-phone/
Adamant, 28 Jun 2012No offense taken. The review actually is just one of the few reviews I read, but almost all of... moreWhy do we care on those review bias sites(The Verge,Mobile-review etc.?Im aware on Symbian's shortcoming and its lack of apps ecosystem(since I used the Maemo OS which was superb)but the main point use of this phone is to cater on camera lovers(those users who enjoy the outdoors and nature),not on couch potatoes(app lovers).The simplicity and easy to use of this phone was enough for casual Mobilr users.
