kill-for-exclusivity, 17 Jan 2013Lens for Samsung devices are made by schnieder electric
Do you even have any idea what you're... moreDid I say that Samsung lens are good? My opinion is just as empty as yours. You said that the Samsung lens are poor and Carl Zeiss are great, without anything to support what you are saying. That's typical attitude of a fanboy.
Also, I have a nokia N9, with carl zeiss lens and I love nokia phones, but I really hate this kind of attitute.

Anonymous, 17 Jan 2013you obviously dont own one, the image quality is actually not bad, its only bad when geeks and... moreU didnt get my point wat I meant was if u r payimg 500 $ for a point and shoot u expect better image quality than an average camera....it couldnt even beat a cell phone in daylight so tell me is ot a good investment....
hey nekko, 17 Jan 2013I will recommend the Nokia 808 for those who wants an all in one device with emphasis on good ... more+1 for you, but I resent the part about parting with 3310. I like it. It still have rubber bands around it. I use Sony cybershot for digi cam and proud sxs and 3310 user.
Wow, I haven't thought the 808 would be that much better than the Galaxy Camera. It practically kicked its butt badly in daylight.
As of low light settings, 808 chose 1/8 seconds which is too much exposure time, the GSMArena guys should have risen the ISO a bit so the shutter time would be shorter, like 1/20 or so, otherwise there are big chances to move/blur the picture. Or if you want to compare quality of the sensor, just put it on a tripod. 808 requires a little tweaking for great results in low light with no xenon. Anyway, you can safely set it to ISO 400 and still get a great picture, even ISO 800 is pretty good.
Galaxy Camera is too big to fit in pocket. Pureview 808 you still can use it everyday.
nokiaman , 17 Jan 2013OK I recommend you try the PV if you like to shoot and post to facebook as PV808 can do this q... moreIf Your talking about Just taking pictures to upload to fb, then almost every phone from 2011+ will do the job Just fine.
nokia is phone VS galaxy camera is camera how to comparation maybe phone by phone or camera by camera it's coparation aple to aple
The galaxy camera is better suited for everyday situation. Zoom, image stabilisation and decent night mode will give you decent enough pictures to show off on facebook. A secondary camera for professional photographers? Would it be cheaper and more convenient to buy a decent point and shoot? We would need a comparison between the galaxy camera and the olympus/ canon blah blahs to determine that.
In terms of image quality (in decent lighting), i reckon the pureview wins hands down. The oversampling is clearly a must have for compact point and shoots. I don't know why nokia haven't tried bringing a series of cameras to the market that uses this tech!
I will recommend the Nokia 808 for those who wants an all in one device with emphasis on good camera.
As for the Galaxy Camera I will only recommend it to those who still find it difficult in this day and age to part with their 3310. It would be the perfect combination. A trusty tank of a phone in your right pocket and a smart camera on your left.
For others who already have an Android smartphone the Galaxy Camera will just be a dead weight.
Just the shear fact that a cell phone is being compared to a camera says everything about the pureview on its own! considering the size of the pureview and its capabilities, it is by far more impressive. And the amount of noise in the sample pictures of the galaxy camera is disgusting.
anyone who doesn't admit that the pureview 808 is outstanding innovation is an arrogant twit... even nokia haters admit that nokia did a fine job with this phone. It true engineering and innovation to fit such a large sensor with such a low 'f' number in a camera of this size.. not to mention the over sampling and extremely powerful xenon flash in a small area.
Ahlan, 17 Jan 2013Thats why in this test proof that Galaxy Camera has better images and sharpness than Nokia 808... moreis this what you concluded from the review?:))))...well everybody's free to own an opinion:)
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2013sorry bud, camera phones have been around for a while. 808 isn't an innovation at all.the pixel oversampling is an inovation which is done in 808 PureView, you cannot say that there is no inovation in 808 PureView.
Much as Sammy would like you to think, the Galaxy Camera is NOT a smartphone. It is just Android being slapped into a mediocre point-and-shoot camera. It is extremely misleading for Sammy to position this as a smartphone when it is not. Taking this analogy to the extreme to show how stupid it is, if a Hyundai car uses Android for its entertainment/navigation, they could call it the first smartphone that can drive you from Point A to B!

This shows that more MP =/= better camera....
if you are not an internet obssessed freak, checking facebook and youtube in every hotspot, nokia 808 is the best phone in the world. only internet speed is slow. in rest all is perfect:battery,reception,acoustics,gps. practically with this tool you do not need anymore to invest money in a spare compact photocamera and a spare video camera anymore, wich WILL become dusty AND QUASI-USELESS in your home waiting for the holidays. only these two tools make the price of nokia 808 to be a real bargain
