Nokia 808 PureView Review: In Depth

Recombu
4 September 2012
  • Conclusion: We have two conclusions, one for current Symbian users and one for anyone coming from an alternate OS. For Symbian users happy with their experiences so far and intent on getting the best camera phone out there, the Nokia 808 PureView will be a dream come true.
  • Pros: Best cameraphone available, Best HD video capture on a phone, Great connectivity options
  • Cons: Dated OS, Low resolution screen, Poor app support

  • Conclusion: We admit that we paid the bulk of our attention in the review to the camera on the Nokia 808 PureView, because we were mesmerized by what the 41MP module is capable of. As a phone the handset functions as good as it gets with Symbian, especially if you have some experience with this mobile OS, then...
  • Pros: Groundbreaking PureView camera technology, Good sunlight visibility, Excellent Nokia Rich Recording audio, Free offline voice-guided navigation in most countries
  • Cons: Symbian lacks in apps, browsing and user-friendliness, Low screen pixel density, Chunky and hefty design

  • Summary: Nokia had revolutionized the mobile camera market with the launch of the 5.0-megapixel N95 in 2007. Now, after almost five years, the brand tries to do the same with the new 41.0-megapixel sensor toting PureView 808. Will it succeed?

Nokia 808 PureView review

11 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The Nokia 808 PureView is basically a one-trick pony, with a cracking camera attached to an average smartphone that just happens to be saddled with an out-of-favour OS. If you want to treat yourself to a new camera that also acts as a phone, it's certainly worth considering, but given that Nokia has...

Nokia 808 PureView review

TechRadar UK
27 July 2012
  • Summary: Can the killer camera turn Nokia from zero to hero?
  • Pros: Amazing camera, Decent 720p output, High quality audio, We liked the 41MP camera, giving the ability to zoom in and still get high resolution 8MP images and 4-inch Gorilla Glass display providing a nice screen size for picture and video playback. The Nokia 808 PureView feels like the development ...
  • Cons: No contract options, Symbian nearing end, Unprotected camera, Bulky device, We disliked the distinct lack of operator options with the Nokia 808 PureView only available from Amazon at the full SIM free price of around £500. Although this is the same as the iPhone 4S SIM free price it does knock i...

Nokia PureView 808 Camera Phone Review

ePHOTOzine
20 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The Nokia PureView 808 features a large 41 megapixel sensor. This is not only a much higher resolution than other mobile phones (with others maxing out at 16 megapixels), it's also vastly higher than compact cameras (max 18.2mp), compact system cameras (max 24.3mp), digital SLRs (max 36.3mp), and is...
  • Pros: 41 megapixel sensor - excellent detail, f/2.4 Carl Zeiss Tessar lens, Good level of control, Lossless zoom available on a phone, Impressive flash performance, Large bright 4inch screen, Advanced video recording options, Responsive camera/phone interface, GPS/Wi-Fi/3G/Bluetooth connectivity built ...
  • Cons: Shooting at full resolution creates large JPEG images, upto 16MB each, Benefits of "PureView" and lossless zoom at a much lower resolution (8/5mp), Running Symbian - an increasingly unsupported phone OS, Self-timer can't be selected with other shooting modes, Not available on contract in the UK
