Pure Quality. The revolutionary 41MP Camera


The Nokia 808 PureView is an extraordinary camera phone. Simply in terms of its image-making capabilities, it sets a new benchmark for the industry. Think of something approaching an SLR camera – but it’s also a smartphone that fits in your pocket.

41 MP Sensor with PureView Imaging

The Nokia 808 PureView is equipped with a 41MP sensor and Carl Zeiss lens. What makes its camera exceptional is the large image sensor combined with incredibly powerful image processing technology. It boasts a 3x lossless zoom, which means you can take a photo and zoom in up to three times without any loss of detail. With PureView imaging technology you can create photos that exceed the usual output of the very best dedicated digital cameras. You can take pictures that can be blown up to large format poster sizes without any loss of definition or detail, or you can zoom and crop your pictures whilst maintaining superb quality images. It also features exceptional video recording capabilities, with high quality image and sound. Shoot video in 1080p Full HD, with up to 4x lossless zoom for smooth, consistent image capture with pin-sharp detail. Nokia 808 PureView offers a choice of shooting modes to suit all levels of photographic expertise and experience: Automatic, Scenes and Creative. Automatic is for people who simply want to point, shoot and share high quality photos and videos with minimal input required. Scenes is for photographers who want a bit more control over their end results, but perhaps lack the experience of an out-and-out expert. If you’ve got a specific creative vision in mind, this is the mode to choose. It gives you complete control over camera settings and shooting parameters so you can tailor them to suit any scene or subject.

Stay Connected

As well as helping you to create amazing high definition images and videos, your Nokia 808 PureView makes it easy to share the results, with HDMI and DLNA outputs, NFC connectivity, Wi-Fi and social networks. It comes equipped with NFC (Near Field Connectivity), a clever new technology that lets you share information with other NFC devices with a simple tap. Share your photos and videos to social networks and email in real time. Nokia 808 PureView cleverly optimises photo file sizes for uploading, which makes sending and sharing images much faster.


Nokia Maps is free, turn-by-turn navigation for over 100 countries, and comes preloaded with Nokia 808 PureView. Whether you’re on foot or on wheels, it’ll show you where you are and help you to where you’re going – with plenty of expert help, and local advice along the way. It brings you weather forecasts and local reports specific to the places and routes you’re travelling with Nokia Maps. Nokia Drive is turn-by-turn voice navigation that’s fully optimised for in-car use, and complete with safety features like speed camera and limit warnings. With online access to over 70 million places and routes, Nokia Drive is designed for smart, effortless car navigation.


Wherever you are, it brings you an amazing entertainment experience, and is the first smartphone ever to feature Dolby Headphone technology. With Dolby Headphone on board your Nokia 808 PureView you can play crystal clear Dolby Surround sound from any stereo headphones. Watch movies or listen to music, and you’ll hear superb surround quality – up to 7.1 channels. It even works with YouTube videos. Packed into the Nokia 808 PureView is a Dolby Headphone virtualiser, which creates a surround sound experience through any stereo headphones when you play stereo or multichannel audio.

This phone seemed nothing short of a dream come true for any remaining Symbian fans -- all 3 of us! Prior to its introduction at MWC last February, I was getting a bit dismayed by the lack of good choices out there. I was getting bored with my aging Nokia N8 from 2010, but almost 2 years later, nothing else could match its camera, its offline navigation, its connectivity options, or - this may be a bit of a surprise if you read too many blogs - its usability. The prospects of another bone thrown our way from Nokia were pretty slim too: In 2011 Nokia's new CEO, Microsoft lackey Stephen Elop, gave the Symbian OS the death sentence and instead hijacked the company as a tool to use in a last ditch (futile) attempt to promote Windows Phone, thus _instantly_ killing off Nokia's then-40+% share of the global smartphone market.

Then - out of nowhere - came the 808 PureView! My first reaction was "Holy Cow! 41 Megapixels -- why? Talk about megapixel race gone awry! And on Symbian, to boot!". Turns out, there are good reasons for both the pixel resolution and the OS choice - more on that below. Suffice it to say, I can't remember having been this excited about a new phone since... well... the N8. I simply could not wait for the official US release here on Amazon, and instead purchased the black version from an importer - warranty be damned! Of course, more sane individuals will want to get the US version here instead. :)

UPDATE Oct 4, 2012: It is with a heavy heart that I now have removed two stars from my original 5-star rating. The phone overall is spectacular: The camera, Nokia Maps, and the build quality in particular.

For all of the Nokia bashing by the media over the past few years, the 808 has been a breath of fresh air for me. The PureView tech on this device makes dedicated picture and video devices a thing of the past...at least when it comes to high quality point and shoot cameras. In fact, unless you absolutely need a DSLR, this phone will do it all. Sound quality is also off the charts...with the "Rich Recording" and full DOLBY capabilities inside the 808. It also packs a super sized XENON flash for night-time stills AND a hi powered LED for evening video (+ flashlight).

Browser: The default browser is OK but lags behind the competition. Easily solved by installing Opera Mobile and/or Opera Mini. Opera Mobile is leading most benchmarks. Like the browser on the iPhone, Opera does not support flash. However, the default browser is Flash Lite capable.

UI: Very smooth and fluid. Belle FP1 is IMO on par with Android 2.3...in terms of the user experience.

Apps: Of course, you will have to settle for less apps (~30K for the 808). That being said, 9 times out of 10 I have found a Belle version of a popular app...or at least a near proxy. No Kindle Reader app. Skype does not yet offer video calling via its client...though the device itself is fully capable.

As for games...the dedicated GPU is a screamer...so it performs well. From Angry Birds, to Raging Thunder 2, Real Golf 2011, Fruit Ninja...there's plenty to choose. However, it cannot compare to the game selection offered by Apple.

Battery: Excellent...close to 2 days with average use. Also removable.

Build: Solid. The polycarbonate chassis feels good in the hand and exudes quality. The camera hump is not so huge, considering the massive sensor inside.

So lets start of by saying this is my first Symbian Phone and first Amazon Review. I have used Windows Mobile, Andriod, Windows 7 and now new to Symbian. I was excited about the 41 megapixel camera with Pureview Technology. I was not sure with all the negative reviews from Engadget, Mobileburn, Laptop.com and TheVerge that this phone would be utter crap besides the Camera. They are wrong and I think the bias has shown that Symbian and Belle FP1 is actually usuable and that Nokia has crafted an amazing piece of hardware.

The reviewer's from the major website made this phone to be huge and unusuable. The phone feels right and the bump helps you balance the phone. The polycarbonate shell is premium unlike the other manufacturers who cheapen the hardware

The first thing is of course the Camera..top in its field in both Video and Photos but the sound you record at CD quality with Rich Recording is in itself a revolution. The sound that you record will be amazing as you play it back. Try it at concerts.

The screen with its nHD is not appealing with some but Clear Black Technology and Amolead makes the pictures you take and the videos you play look amazing. 1080p and a ton of codecs such as MKV, AVI, MP4 and more play flawlessly on the 808 then most of the smartphones who chug and lag with all those multi core setups. Also the 808 has the best visibility of any phone in the sun period.

Storage is 16gb internally and you can add a 64gb card!!!

The Nokia difference is in its software. I had a Lumia 900 and I loved Windows phone but I like what Nokia did in the software that made my Lumia so special. Since I have upgraded to the 808 I am using Nokia Transport, Drive, World Gaze, City Lens, Guides, Map, Nokia Bubbles, Sleeping Screen.
