    I don't get it, HTC makes awesome phones yet they don't sell well. I am currently using the HTC evor 4g lte and couldn't be any more happy with it.

    41 mp on a phone? It's getting a little ridiculous now. 5 mp is more than enough for me.

    Well, taking a jab at Nokia's PureView can surely be done easily; Just post a photo of a van & a studio gear camera... (Look it up if you have not heard, Nokia where caught with their pants down as saying pictures taken with their phones when infact very high-end studio gear was used instead)

    But bashing it for the megapixel count is just lame, it's a fantastic camera phone with the largest CCD sensor bar none that has ever been released.
    Even dpreview gave it a good rating! http://www.dpreview.com/articles/8083837371/review-nokia-808-pureview

    You take several photos with different settings and overlay them... that's called HDR.

    I feel like those saying "pixels don't matter" are just regurgitating what they've seen others post. Nokia is actually trying to do something different with those pixels, their purpose isn't just to ADD MOAR PIXLS!, but to use digital technology in a different way. It remains to be seen how good this can be, but it's most definitely interesting. You guys should read up on it.

    Upto Sensation line, they made smartphones which felt more like bricks, however, that changed with One line. But unfortunately they always put 'barely decent' cameras on their phones at best, whereas, Nokia, generally has better track record in this area. So, unless, their new camera sensor can put out something competitive (which I am skeptical atm), Nokia may end up having a good laugh at their expense ...... again.
