I can not understand the aggression against Symbian and Nokia when I read 808 reviews available in many places. Are the writers brainwashed?

I changed my iPhone 3G to Nokia 808 and I am happy I did! Originally I did it to get rid of carrying a separate camera (Panasonic LX5) - 808 is better camera and only the half of the weight.

I need good phone and as a phone this is probably the best on the market. I was also surprised how good offline navigation it has.

The screen resolution doesn't bother me as it shows all I need and very well. The screen is outstanding in the direct sunlight. When I compared the screen to iPhone4S with higher resolution, I couldn't understand the big debate about the resolution 360*480 seems to be good enough and more pixels do not make it better to use.

How about Symbian? Once again where is the beef? Even with one core it seems to be fast and I can easily modify the start screens the way I want. Putting WAN, Bluetooth and others on/off is very nice just scrolling from the top of the screen. It is very easy and nice to use. Nokia supports Symbian till 2016 and I change my phone after 2-3 years anyhow.

Applications? I need weather, stock info, memos, calendar, calculator, navigation and all of them work just fine for me. Sport Tracker is very useful for me, too. I don't use email in my phone but it has it. I am not heavy user of Twitter or Facebook but I could easily use my phone for those, too. I use MacBookPro when I want to use browser, email or view/modify photos. I use Opera browser of the phone occasionally and it could/should load pages faster.

It is good I didn't listen to the warnings of the biased articles. This is the best phone for those who need good camera, excellent navigation and good phone. It is not the best for those (usually kids) who use the phone mainly for surfing and to play games.

Actually, just switched from IPhone 4 and boy o boy, it was the best decision of my life. The pictures and videos this baby is taking just simply astounding and gps ( Nokia drive) is excellent too. Now I carry only 1 piece (808) instead of 4 (camcorder,gps, point and shoot, phone). Now that's what I call technology.
Right on Nokia!!!

No matter how much i try to explain it, it just blows you away the first time, the video is awesome and the pictures are just from another planet! Comparing this hardware to others is like comparing Columbus Ships to the Space Shuttle, Yes Apple and Samsung cant match it! The camera is fast,The audio on video is incredible no distortion even on a concert and theres no wind sound even at a beach! Its even have Dolby Surround the output is clean and loud, music lovers will fall in love with this device, it eats all video and music formats no complain even dragged and dropped and even tru bluetooth! No restrictions like W7 or IOS. Zoom is awesome and sharp and the xenon flash will make awesome pics at the club! Im still working on knowing the OS but the more i use it the more i like it very customizable i can even make folders and send them via Bluetooth! Overall construction is sturdy like old Nokias! Gorilla Glass looks great and the screen is way more readable on sunlight than my Iphone4s if you want to be different from the croud this is the way to go! Ps Calls sounds loud and clear no drops and have an strong signal on ATT. Also it has a nice idle screen that tells you the hour and day without pressing anything it looks awesome buy it i was scared too not anymore ;)

I received the Nokia 808 one week ago (from "Tablet Distributors" an Amazon partner VERY quickly), the week before Thanksgiving. My previous phone was the Nokia N8 which I love. But I'm a sucker for an amazing camera in a phone, thus the new phone.

The 808 gives an amazing leap forward with its camera experience, offers some well deserved and performance improvements across the whole phone's operation, and a number of design improvements. Some of the standard and well loved performance features of Symbian are here too, features other phone os users have to pay for. The keyboard, a function which Belle (the Nokia OS at the time) surpasses all other smart device OS keyboards, has had a massive redesign, a move which will irritate and alienate many Symbian defenders, but with a week's use (or maybe two), they will be comfortable with.

General speed improvements can be felt throughout all activities with this phone compared with the N8 or E7. No lagging, email hangups, or apps which are not sure if they want to open. Everything is waaay snappier than other smart devices I've had, including the tragic mistake of the Transformer Infinity which I returned.

Just so you know, my base of comparisons for smartphones & devices: I have owned several Nokia smartphones (n95 (amazing camera & my first smartphone), E7, N8) and owned Android and iOS devices. I am familiar with all of these. And utterly love my N8. So nice.


Skipping the obvious and amazing 41 mp camera and Pureview tech, the camera offers improvements and corrects annoyances from Nokia's other premium camera phones. It's way faster than other Nokia camera apps, opens faster than my other Nokia phone apps, takes pics faster once started, faster on the next pic.
