I own the 808 since it was on the marked and I'm really impressed by the picture quality. You can find my pictures (all taken by the Nokia 808 PureView) on my flickr page:
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2013Nokia thrashed Samsung in this one and pretty convincingly too.Must be an Extremely rare thing, no?
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2013Samsung galaxy camera = CAMERA
Nokia 808 = SMARTPHONE If you read the final words
Samsung = not so good camera
Pure view = smartphone that lacks feature
Not my words
In nokia 808 if u set the video setting contrast to the lowest and reduce the framerate to maybe 25 or less, then adjust the xposure to suit the light condition and zoom a little while shooting, u will get a lowlight video shot that looks like daylight. Amazing, really.
808 is much better, in fact the finns should make its successor with an upgraded symbian os
In what parallel universe are these two on level at 2x zoom when you can clearly see that Galaxy Camera still makes average pics and is not even remotely close to 808 quality???
[deleted post]The review concludes that the 808 is much better than all the compacts on the market, so how it's a rubbish camera?
GSMARENA: Dimension is full dimension, unless you can carry or use galaxy camera without lenses. Even that Samsung inform 19mm deep, the correct measure of this device is 34mm deep, more than double of Nokia 808. The specification of Galaxy Camera must be corrected by Gsmarena and Samsung, otherwise is a misinformation.
Wait a minute! Why are these two devices being compared? They're completely different. The 808 is a phone 1st and a camera 2nd. The camera selling point is an additional bonus. The Galaxy Camera is strictly meant to be just a camera, that's its sole purpose.
This is a silly review.
Both are for Niche markets. The camera with Android is obviously going to be more successful unless Nokia can achieve the same with a Windows phone.
AnonD-85611, 17 Jan 2013What's the point of showing the website of carl zeiss? Also, I couldn't care any less for what... moremaybe you research a little before saying fanfoysm "wisdom"...you don't care but you reply to them:)
AnonD-101865, 16 Jan 2013You didn't even bother to update the 808 to FP2?
It improves the gallery a lot, and correc... moreWhen I read your comment a don't really believe... now I already make my research and yes, you're right.
Why? How can the GSM Arena do a test / review with one of the competitors wearing a software so outdated? Belle FP2 is here for more than 3 months! And after that the 808 has received a major update for solely for optimization.
Why the Galaxy Camera needs this advantage?
What I found odd was that despite the clear victory of 808, their quality was mitigated in the final balance.
