Nokia 808 PureView review

 

The Nokia 808 PureView packs an astonishing 41MP camera

Amazing camera ; Great battery life ; Responsive performance

Symbian looks old-fashioned ; Lacks app variety ; Chunky profile

Nokia 808 PureView review

 

Can the killer camera turn Nokia from zero to hero?

Amazing camera ; Decent 720p output ; High quality audio

No contract options ; Symbian nearing end ; Unprotected camera ; Bulky device

As Nokia's Symbian hardware development comes to an end, its long awaited "Game Changer" device has finally hit the UK streets with its killer camera.

Nokia 808 Pureview - Pocket-lint

 

Make no mistake, we love this phone. The price means that we can't really give it a higher score, as it's enormously expensive. But, that doesn't change

Camera, great features, lots of handy apps pre-installed, good email support, good battery life, fantastic call quality, music player

Display is low resolution compared to most, Symbian still confusing at times, too expensive

There will no doubt be people who will tell you that Symbian is out-classed by Android and iOS. In terms of apps, and perhaps the quality of the developer ecosystem, they are probably correct. But the fact is, the 808 comes to you as a feature-complete...

Nokia 808 PureView

 

Hands on: A stunning camera but a stupefying phone.

Still with a launch price of 450EUR, it's as much as some seriously powerful and impressive upcoming Android smartphones. As such it's probably a case of waiting for this technology to filter into Nokia's Lumia handsets before buying in.

Nokia 808 PureView review

 

There's nothing wrong with Symbian, of course, but it is on its way to the grave which means the relative lack of apps is unlikely to improve, and you shouldn't expect any OS updates. And next to iOS, Windows Phone and Android, Symbian looks what it...

Nokia's 808 PureView is best described as a camera with a phone in it. And that 41-megapixel camera is impressive. The question is: do you want to spend £500 on a camera with a Symbian smartphone attached, when you could get a top level compact camera...

Nokia PureView 808 - a revolutionary camera design

 

Nokia rethinks mobile, and possibly all, digital cameras with its massive 41-megapixel sensor

We’re really looking forward to testing a Symbian phone for the first time in years.
