Outstanding Camera, Dolby Digital Plus sound, Great 1080p recording, Excellent build quality, Impressive display, Free sat nav, NFC ready, FM transmitter.
Outdated OS experience; chubby device; not the highest display resolution; and singlecore CPU on R8 000 device.
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.
Heavy, lowresolution screen, quite expensive at £500.
Still running on Symbian, though it’s been renamed “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 $700 —

Dated and clunky software; low resolution display; no 4G
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.

Web browser is unusable, Symbian Belle feels like a terrible imitation of Android, Lowres display, Camera hump is a hindrance
Symbian is too dated as an OS
Bulky, Limited number of apps on Symbian, Screen has low pixel density
