Nokia 808 PureView Specs Review

0. phoneArena posted on 06 Mar 2012, 03:58

The Nokia 808 PureView is among the smartphones that generated a lot of buzz during MWC 2012, and is still heavily discussed in the blogosphere. And rightfully so, as it packs the biggest and baddest camera sensor that has ever found itself inside of a smartphone so far...

Totally agree with you. For some reason, people want thinnest smartphone with biggest screen. Yet with those dimensions, the phone becomes very uncomfortable to hold with one hand. Now people may say that you should hold it with two hands then, but honestly, we mostly use one hand.

The iphone looks good and all, but i held it for 30 minutes and my hand was really uncomfortable. Yet i can single handed use the N8 without any discomfort for hours on end.

Then there is the screen resolution thing. Hold the N8 at normal distance, and you dont see the pixels, unless you try really hard. Now i dont know why some one would be looking out to see the pixels on the screen instead of the image being displayed.

The tone of the article is purposefully negative. In fact, that is the case for almost all Nokia, Symbian, Microsoft, and Windows Phone articles published in this website. Every time there is something good, they say "No surprise"!! But if there is some minor thing about iPhone ar Android phones, they will magnify it 100 times and make it seem like it is the most important thing in the world. They also purposefully don't talk about the best features of Nokia 808, as some people have mentioned above. That shows how biased the authors of this website are!!

Wow! I use a Motorola razr, and I've been coming to this site for a while. I decided to register today after reading this article and was that dissolutioned that it makes me post this.. I can't believe the article forgot or didn't research the product and left out so much about what seems to be a very genuine product information. I also agree for a leading phone review and info site your lack of excitement or want to embrace any new technology that isn't quad core based seems unenthusiastic.
Super Sensor, 41 mega pixel, 140 db twin Mic, fm transmitter, huge phone storage, multiple video out, 1080p lossless zoom, some super outside visible gorilla glass screen
All that in a phone plus probably heaps more all in a tiny 14mil case.From all accounts this phone is possibly the one stop shop. I'll agree that you hasn't had hands on to get down to the nitty gritty, though there send to be allot of info from people who played with it at mwc and it seems to be living up to the hype.
So come on phone arena give me some writing that i can trust has my best intentions in mind and let me make a decision of weather I'll want it or not.

Suprised about comments re poor sound quality on this phone since audio quality is supposed to one of 808's major strengths?

Definitely agree that the Nokia 808 does not have the other features of other smartphones on the market but the camera is by far the best out there.
