Great camera, good selection of preinstalled applications, excellent battery life if you are not in the business of snapping a great many photos.
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.
Mindblowingly good camera, quirky design, great battery life.
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.
Takes amazing photos and videos; Attractive design; Good Maps and Navigation apps
Incredible, groundbreaking camera; solid build quality
Groundbreaking 41-megapixel camera, Unlocked; compatible with both AT&T and T-Mobile 3G networks, Nifty screen lock switch.
Groundbreaking PureView camera technology, Good sunlight visibility, Excellent Nokia Rich Recording audio, Free offline voiceguided navigation in most countries
Best camera ever, included tripod and fast for Symbian.
Outdated OS experience; chubby device; not the highest display resolution; and singlecore CPU on R8 000 device.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 —
Outdated Symbian operating system; Low-resolution display; No HDR mode; Much fewer apps than Android and iOS
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.
Chunky and hefty design, Symbian lacks in apps, browsing and userfriendliness, Low screen pixel density
Symbian is too dated as an OS
