Really! Bottle opener is very impractical! Ray S, what's wrong with you? Number 1 says it should be slimmer, and if you add 5, the 'i wish it would be slim' profile becomes redundant!
Besides, one will never be satisfied with what a single device has to offer.
If it's slim, they'd complain about the battery.
And if it's both slim and has beefy battery, they'd complain about the camera. Fact is, 'things that would make a device better' is overated! It will never be over, lets face it.
This type of article is just a hopeless gimmick!!!

If you read it properly he never mentions word slimmer, he says the device should be more compact in overall dimensions.

Ok. So he never did!
Tell me what your concept of compact is??
Whatever "is" slim is mostly considered compact!!
Are you sure "You-can-surely-see-the-light:"? :P

Don't you know what compact means? a less taller, larger and slimmer device, the front dominated by the display the most as possible and not much around the display as you can see the Lumia has a large space below the screen full of unused space, and besides are you that stupid not to understand the joke?

Less taller and larger??? The answer is somewhat simillar to LG's very own L3??? Boy...that really is a compact device!!
Everyone has their own joke that people don't want to listen to...yours is one of them i guess!!

sorry to say...Phonearena did understand why nokia does not include a higher megapixel...IT IS BECAUSE nokia wants to get a profit like other manufacturer...2nd with the SD card, one thing to say "HOW ABOUT IPHONE?

nokia 920 is truly the most innovative one

Ok phone arena how about u guys stop the abundant amount of post hating on nokia.. Ur going to bitch about it already being too thick then complain about it not having a huge 41mp camera do u guys have 5 year Olds posting these story's.. 8.7mp is perfect the screen looks great has a big battery and fast processor and the phone looks great in my opinion. ill never buy a windows phone but I'm tempted.. And it looks like a solid offering and should sell well so why don't u guys get off there damn backs!

lets see if after the new iphone is released theres summit on here like ' 5 things that would have made the iphone an even better phone' but im sure there wont be . it'll just be praising it

nokia excellent build quality, actual innovation in the camera on the phone and wp8 looks solid

all in all a great phone and competitor for andriod and apple.
it should do well

Agreed, the only one I slightly agree with is the camera, but if you don't want a fatter phone, you can't have that
and people don't want fat ass phones, so nokia did good with the 8.7
and that camera im pretty sure is still better than the other 16mp phones out there.
can't have best of both worlds yet

Na, his team built the phone. Not elop. For what the 920 has to offer, tempted to get one.

There are already great phones on jellybean why would you this too android. Jellybean is great but it will be bad if every phone had android.
Let the market be competitive and enjoy as the underdog fights.

So the iPhone didn't get any complaints for having the same design, lack of expandable memory or the lack of support for usb mass storage?

And the ironic thing is it is by the exact same reviewer. Ray S loves his iPhone for all the same reasons he dislikes the Lumia.

Unchanged design -- check!
Unchanged UI -- check!
No expandable memory -- check!

Then PhoneArena wonders why they are accused of being biased to the iPhone. I hate the jumbled UI of Windows Phone 8, I hate the lockdown of the OS, but I am not going to turn around and say those features make another phone great.

Also, lets be 100% clear... the Nokia 808 is a Camera with phone features. It isn't a phone with a camera built in. The thing is massive and you might as well just have a small point and shoot and carry a different phone.

well i disagree with what you say about the 808, its a phone with exceptional camera. the phone side is just as good as andriod and iOS . belle fp1 isnt as bad as everyone states maybe people should use the phone before judging

35. phitch (Posts: 214; Member since: 06 Mar 2012)


You don't have to agree. Yet, how big is this "phone" in comparison to a normal phone with the same screen size? 13.9 mm thick? How thick is a point and shoot camera? A Sony Cyber-shot with 18.2 MP camera is 17.5 mm thick and that is a dedicated camera. So to me, it is a little thick.

posted on 06 Sep 2012, 09:35

38. phitch (Posts: 214; Member since: 06 Mar 2012)


Also, at the camera the Nokia is 17.95 mm thick. So it is actually thicker than a point and shoot.

47. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


ok so you make a call with your point and shoot i'll use my 808

the 808 is one device that does all you need with the spotlight on the camera

i dont mind the size as for one it fits fine in the hand and easily usable with one hand. its not overly heavy i mean please if you cant hold it up in one hand you need help

basically we just live in a world where no ones happy. nokia brings mobile camera to a new standard and everyone complains .
