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.
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
Summary: The 808 Pureview is a camera with a cellphone attached. The camera works well, takes great shots, allows for incredible pre capture zooming and yields shots that hold up to severe cropping. Many of the items photographers need to control are controllable with the 808.
Summary: The Symbian software is not all that bad if you're not looking for all the apps that an iPhone or Android device can run. That said, it does have a number of bugs. For example, every now and then, I found it would heat up.
Summary: The offline maps What can I say about Nokia maps its incredible. The speed and accuracy is on par or better than a dedicated gps. For example, In the U.S., watch the posted speed limit on the screen change at the same time that you pass that same sign on the street.

I am a photography enthusiast and this camera-phone is a great camera option to bring if I can't bring/carry my DSLR all the...
Summary: I mainly use this phone to text, use wi-fi, and take photos and videos. It's nice not having to carry both a camera and cell phone, especially in the summer when I don't have extra pockets from a jacket. The photo quality is amazing as long as you can keep the camera steady.
Summary: I bought this to use just as a mobile camera and it's been working great so far. The Symbian OS runs smooth for these purposes, and with care I see no reason why the camera shouldn't be usable for many years to come. The battery charges fast and it's also replaceable, so that's a plus.
Summary: I don't want to rave about the camera, as it takes great pictures and has been sufficiently ratified by others. I have used this phone for over a month now. Here are some details that might make a difference to your purchase decision, in case you are tempted and wondering - Navigation and UI - -...
