Good: The Camera!
Comment: Seems like a great phone, but its not for me because a Mobile Phone these days is more than a device for making calls, texting and even taking photos/videos! And plus, most people dont have £500 to pay upfront. Hopefully, Nokia will bring a 41 mp camera on its Windows range, then I might buy a Nokia.
Comment: camera, say no more. the rest is vanilla handheld device. battery life,
Good: First of all the camera..Look awesome...
Bad: Same patform
Comment: It's a good phone for the snap lovers, like me. If I'd suppose to buy a phone, I'd prefer Pure 808.
Good: Best Symbian so far
Comment: Only a comment about your twitter or some other social app research - you must have missed something, there are loads of (3rd party) social applications on the Nokia store.
You don't have to like it, and yes, it is a "reincarnation" but Symbian works fine, specially from Anna and up.
Comment: Not buying a phone that uses Symbian. It's *junk*.
Bad: I don't believe it
Comment: I'll be interested to see more about this but looking at the specs I find it hard to believe unless Nokia has somehow managed to rewrite the laws of physics.
People and here the media must take much of the blame, still seem to associate megapixels with quality.
There is a good reason why my pro camera has a sensor 12mp sensor that is 20X the size of Nokia's 41mp version, uses 2 quad core processors (that are only for camera image processing. That is before you consider the comparable sizes and properties of the lenses.
In addition to the huge amount of memory space that a 41mp image sensor is going to generate it will take a lot of processing time and time to write such large image files to the memory.
I think that anyone who is looking primarily for high image quality is going to carry a dedicated camera, rather than this 'phone.
I do think that this is a interesting experiment however, although not something that should be taken too seriously.
Comment: ok this phone can take photo of empire state building and can be zoomed to show filament of a bulb in one of the rooms but i dont think most of u will spend money on this rather i prefer an ipad 3
Comment: I would like to see one of the 29 people who reckon they own this phone make a comment or review! Why give people the option to say they own the phone when clearly dont because the nokia 808 is a concept phone made to show what camera tech nokia has!
Comment: Good for nokia.
Good: robust software and good camera. The phone feature which I think is VIP
Comment: I use a camera a lot and to have one device in your pocket that lets you take photos, communicate via all means (inc NFC, payments etc) and browse web etc. is just the thing. How many apps DON'T you need?
