Beautiful phone, beautiful photos, but be aware what you are getting into!

Summary: The 808 is a weird device, and it is even weirder in 2014 now that Symbian is no longer officially supported. Some observations: Pros: -It's really wonderfully made! The build quality, heft, and the way it fits into your hands immediately makes you feel like you've got a quality device that will...
Summary: I bought the phone and loved the features, and the excellent camera. But couldn't get back to using a phone that was NOT a touch screen, so I returned it. If you like a smart phone that need not be a touch screen, this is a great choice.
Summary: The Nokia N86 Phone is a good phone in general and I must say it stands out against some of the others. The best way to describe what I think of the phone is to list its pros and cons. Pros: - Good quality build and better made than the other phones I have seen or owned.
Great phone, my first Symbian not my first Nokia, overall quite pleased !

Summary: Well what can I say, after owning a Samsung, a Siemens, two or three Sony-ericssons and two nokias previous to this one I finally came into the Symbian world. I must say given the OS and navigation I have always considered myself a SE fanboy, however I took some solid 6 months to review and read...
Summary: Beware this phone model has a defective screensaver (too dark, cannot be seen at all). Search on google and youtube for examples. And it does not come with a US warranty. Update 6 Dec 2012: the screensaver suddenly started working.
Summary: Camera is awesome but managing the the camera software is tricky, battery life could be improved, SportsTracker app will not work with the 808 as with other Nokia phones, the GPS shuts off after starting, it is not compatible with Adobe Flash player, and will not play 95% of online video streams...
Summary: I bought this device because I wanted an all in one device that could do many things, but most important to me was the photo and video capabilities. It has lived up to the press in that respect. I also like the maps.
If the best camera you have is the one that is with you, shouldn't it be the best?

Summary: Bought the Nokia 808 Pureview. Love the camera especially the double xeon flash. The 1080 and 720 video is fantastic. Battery, well when I'm on vacation and using the camera nearly all day long, it is just not enough. So I upgraded the battery to an aftermarket Mugen 3,000mAH battery.
