Nokia 808 PureView (unlocked) review:

 

The Nokia 808 PureView was an immediate hit at Mobile World Congress in February, for one reason and one reason alone: its jaw-dropping 41-megapixel camera commanded attention. Never intended for U.S. markets, the PureView runs on the Symbian OS,...

The Nokia 808 PureView 's excellent, envelope-pushing 41-megapixel camera will satisfy photo enthusiasts. It also has strong battery life, an HDMI port, and steady call quality.

A slower processor doesn't match the 808 PureView's camera prowess, and it's saddled with a bulky body, a cramped virtual keyboard, and software that's behind the curve.

Even if you're only interested in its sharp, innovative camera, the Nokia 808 PureView's weak Symbian Belle OS and slower processor make it a questionable investment considering the price, especially since Symbian's days are numbered.

Nokia 808 PureView: Best camera ever in a phone is not enough to buoy sinking Symbian

 

Summary: Nokia has reigned in camera phone technology over the years and the 808 PureView demonstrates the pinnacle of their imaging success. However, the camera is partnered with a dead OS that holds it back, especially with a price of $699 before tax...

Review: Nokia 808 PureView

 

The Nokia 808 PureView is captivating because of one feature, and one feature alone: the on-board 41-megapixel camera. Everything else about it is a disaster.

The camera produces the best images of any smartphone. Low noise in stills and videos. Multiple setting options allowing you to adjust for different subjects and lighting

Still running on Symbian, though it’s been re-named “Nokia Belle” here in an attempt to escape the shame associated with the Symbian brand. Body is awkwardly shaped and heavy because of the protruding camera. Will set you back 0 — as much as some Micro...

Nokia 808 PureView Review

 

The Nokia 808 PureView is a great demonstration of what good hardware paired with excellent software is capable of--at least when it comes to the camera. It's not just the oversized 41MP sensor, but the PureView technology that goes along with it that...

Takes amazing photos and videos, Attractive design, Good Maps and Navigation apps

Outdated Symbian operating system, Low-resolution display, No HDR mode, Much fewer apps than Android and iOS

Nokia 808 PureView (Unlocked)

 

The Nokia 808 PureView is a curious unlocked smartphone with an amazing camera, but virtually no appeal to U.S. consumers otherwise.

Groundbreaking 41-megapixel camera. Unlocked; compatible with both AT&T and T-Mobile 3G networks. Nifty screen lock switch.

No 4G. Call connection issues. Archaic Symbian OS is a relic. Hit-or-miss touch response. Few apps. Some preloaded apps are broken. Expensive even for an unlocked phone. Poor battery life.

Nokia 808 PureView review: the future of mobile imaging, wrapped in the smartphone past

 

The PureView 808 is easily the best cameraphone yet. But if you're obsessed with imaging quality, be prepared to compromise on performance and usability.

Best cameraphone everSuperb video and audio recordingScreen easily viewable outdoors

Low-res displayApp store lacks the range and breadth of rivalsSymbian Belle OS is temperamental and unintuitive

The Nokia 808 PureView is the best cameraphone out there, but you'll have to be willing to forgo the simplicity, function and comfort of competing smartphones if you intend to own it. You also have to be seriously imaging-obsessed to handle this as...

Nokia 808 PureView Review

 

Excitement, about a Symbian phone? The Nokia 808 PureView has forced many to reconsider their platform loyalties by virtue of its big number boast: 41-megapixels of camera goodness. The surprise stand-out of Mobile World Congress, the 808 PureView is...

In the end, though, even the fact that we’re comparing the 808 PureView to DSLRs is testament to Nokia’s achievement. Few people will actually go out and buy it themselves, but then the 808 is really a test bench for PureView technology, a...

Beats every other cameraphone by a wide margin ; 38-megapixel photos are surprisingly good ; Great call quality

Web browser is unusable ; Symbian Belle feels like a terrible imitation of Android ; Low-res display ; Camera hump is a hindrance

The 808 PureView is like an armored dinosaur — a visually stunning, internally primitive, beast of fantasy

Nokia 808 PureView review: Photo Finnish

 

The Nokia 808 PureView is the best cameraphone ever made. End of story. Now, how do you proceed from there? And why is this particular phone so hard to write about? How about because a picture is worth a thousand words and we just had a...
