Nokia 808 PureView vs Apple iPhone 4S

0. phoneArena 02 Jul 2012, 08:11 posted on

The PureView camera technology has been years in the making, and developed with the idea that the handset will be running Symbian, so all the camera interface and APIs are tied up to the aging OS the handset is running – Nokia Belle. Still, is it worth to consider the Nokia 808 PureView if you are rocking, or intend to get Apple's finest – the iPhone 4S – with its steel and glass design and more than half a million apps army behinds its back?...

Dear Daniel P. and Phonearena, as I have posted numerous times on your site, I will say it again - Please, stop trying to analyze the companies' decisions. Thinking is not your strong side. "Unfortunately the PureView camera technology has been years in the making, and developed with the idea that the handset will be running Symbian,..." - WTF?! Who are you in the mobile phones world to make such conclusions? Why ''unfortunately''?! Why ''aging'', since Symbian updates arrive on time even FP 2 has come already! Jesus, aren''t you guys edited before posting?

...Let's see. Maemo 5, Maemo 6, Meego? Nokia had more than one operating system at the time of the PV development.

This device by itself satisfies my needs. In case you have an ipad, why would you by an iphone?

You might buy the iPhone if you're and iFan whose iPad is too busy dealing with an iPeriod.

It seems Mr Andrewtst has never seen nor touched the 808. It has good feel to it and is a high quality device.

With iphone one has to use anyway protective covers (as it is otherwise too risky to carry around) which mean that the phone design becomes irrelevant.

I own both phones.....Hands down 808 over IPhone 4s for me.....LOVE my Nokia ....still a working horse of a phone... You also don't have to charge it up every time you need it ...the IPhone dies fast and always needs a charge. My IPhone works a bit better for my Mac Air Book...but my Nokia pairs with more gadgets easier and more consistently. The hefty body that Nokia sports reminds me of a tank and I love the feel of it and if you drop one you find it is still made like a tank...mine hit straight down on the screen on concrete and came through like a tank...no difference in performance at all and the screen had only a tiny mark you have to look hard to find....Don't recommend that as a thing to try though. Love Symbian as well and don't want Windows at all....Global maps anywhere is also wonderful.... The tap and speak feature (unlike SIRI ...THANK GOD) can hear what the heck you say.

To answer the Question The new IPhone 5 didn't even tempt me....Yes Nokia is worth buying over IPhone hands down unless maybe you use your phone with your Macbook Air then the IPhone has a tiny advantage.....But I like nearly everything else better on my Nokia 808 over my IPhone 4s....They need to make these Nokia unlocked phones dual so they can work on all types of networks though not just those with Micro SIM cards....that is my biggest problem...but the IPHones aren't dual either....Nokia newest cheaper phones I hear are dual though....but I will stick with the 808...They are worth every penny!
