Excerpt: I bought this smartphone in september of 2012. Im still using because is still better than the majority even having Android. As GSM arena said, Symbian now is really good. Is a pleasure use it, and fast. There are 200k apps in the oficial Store (closed) and more apps adding in the new Store supported by Symbian community. Cam is great, and reliable. I dont want to add anything because everyone knows that this camera still being the best one.
Pros: Best camera ever, Symbian is very fast., Low energy consumption by Symbian, Perfect RAM management, European product, Nokia Maps: Free navigation offline (no need data for see maps or localize you). Work better that Google maps
Cons: Symbian is officially discontinued, and is not open source., Native web browser is underdeveloped and slow., No Telegram or Line software.
Summary: It is the best Camera phone, even hold in 2013. But I can't recommend to buy this phone. Microsoft killed the whole Symbian platform. Thank you, Microsoft. Let's see how well you can do with WP8.
Pros: First, this is a phone! Not a game pad, if you want to play games, then go with iPhone and Andriod. I don't know why ppl complain about limited selection of app in Symbian. How many 3rd party app do you need in Symbian? Let me list all pro in Nokia 808: 1: Camera. crazy 41MP. Not available in Android or iPhone 2: Map. FREE map crossover the WHOLE world. support OFFLINE navigation. Can Android or iPhone do it without any extra payment? 3: Battery. Can you find another ...
Cons: 1. terrible build in browser. Have to use Opera 2. "limited selection of App", But how many do you need? or how many do you use daily? 3. WIFI hot spot is not supported in North American(carrier regulation). You have to hack it to make it work. 4. No 4G support. But do we really need 4G? 5. The only true CON. Starting from 2014/1/1, Microsoft (yes, it is Microsoft) discontinues all update for Symbian platform and forces to close ONLINE app shop for Symbian. Good job, ...
Summary: If you want the best camera merged with phone than go for Nokia 1020
Pros: Great camera Nokia maps
Cons: - 1 egg for Symbian Belle - lack of applications - even MS Skydrive is with limited features (you can only use it pull contacts and photos for easy upgrade to Windows 8) - 1 egg for the outdated hardware though the OS is optimized and works w/o lag
Summary: "This is the smartphone I've been dreamin' of... I really love this smartphone. Specially the super fantastic camera. fot tho oldy OS, it's not a problem for me. Cos I still love Symbian so much. well, the dissapoint thing is the screen resolution which is too small for the 4" display. but I love this smartphone anyway!
Summary: I got rid of an LG Nexus 4 which took lousy photos and had poor battery life. I bought a used Nokia 808 and haven't regretted the purchase since it is much better on both accounts. The smaller screen is a bit of an adjustment, but the text is readable. I prefer having this phone as my carry-around phone because it excels at being a phone, has good reception and cal quality.
Pros: Great flash photos and low light photos, Lossless zoom, Creative mode, Fantastic screen visibility outdoors, Great battery life - 1 full day, Excellent speaker quality and recording ability
Cons: Static OS - Symbian Belle, Quirky Web Browser, slow, but it does have Adobe Flash, Bulky
Best cameraphone, best phone, sufficient as a smartphone, not a gameboy

Excerpt: This is not the phone for people, who most of their lives remain in the wifi area. This is not the phone who keep tweeting, texting, and fb chating while meeting someone face to face. This is a phone for people who go see things, who travel, who have tons of real friends, not the ones on facebook. Why? 1. It makes pictures, that when You show them to somebody, You won't have to start with: "Sorry for the quality, I've made them with phone" 2.
Cons: battery - not bad but I've expected more from Nokia
