RATING

It's a technological triumph, and a photographic one too. It's also a decent phone, music player and media system. Really, aside from a slightly limp app market and that price, it's got it all. - Ian Morris, Pocket-lint

The PureView 808 is easily the best cameraphone yet. But if you're obsessed with imaging quality, be prepared to compromise on performance and usability. - Mat Smith, Engadget

Undeniably a camera enthusiast's phone

from Phone Report v2.0 (about 1 year ago)

The Nokia 808 PureView really is the finest Symbian device ever produced, but is that good enough? When looking at aspects like multimedia and photography it most certainly is. When looking at it from a more connected point-of-view, not so much. When really delving into user interface and experience... More

A unique phone that banks on one aspect – camera

from Tech Ticker (about 1 year ago)

808 PureView’s is a unique phone that banks on one aspect – camera. Sure, Symbian is on its way out but if camera is all you want from a device that can also make calls, post updates to social networks, OS is the least of your concern. But then again, it wouldn’t really hurt to wait... More

Good image and video quality, lots of options for shooting photos, lossless digital zoom

from Mobile88 (about 1 year ago)

Without a doubt the Nokia 808 PureView smartphone has one of the best cameras. It is a little chunky because of the 41-megapixel but the trade off is well worth it. The camera shoots detailed and high resolution pictures and the lossless digital zoom in PureView mode is just great. Plus, it also shoots... More

The PureView has a fine camera and it's great for taking casual shots

Best cameraphone on the market and a start of a new era

from GSM Dome (over 2 years ago)

On the plus side we have the camera, the great audio and video quality, the friendly design, very good flash and low light behaviour of the camera and very simple UI. Many bundled apps and incredible audio/video recording are also appealing points. On the cons side we’ve got the old, slow and pretty... More

Mind-blowingly good camera, quirky design, great battery life

from The Inquirer (over 2 years ago)

The Nokia 808 Pureview is, without a doubt, the best cameraphone available on the market today. Its 41MP sensor proved to us that it's more than just a weighty novelty and truly managed to impress with its excellent picture quality and many settings. If this review was of its camera alone, the Pureview... More

Amazing camera with high quality audio

from TechRadar (over 2 years ago)

The Nokia 808 PureView is not for everyone, mainly due to its high SIM free price and lack of availability through UK operators. 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... More

A Symbian smartphone with a staggeringly well specified camera

from PC Advisor (over 2 years ago)

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 for that amount of money? If you are not bothered... More

Stellar camera performance with excellent build quality and excellent call quality

from Pocketnow (over 2 years ago)

Nokia can really say that they have accomplished their mission. Espoo said they waited for someone to steal the crown from the Nokia N8 and, after waiting and waiting, they decided to make a product that would allow them to steal it themselves. There is absolutely no doubt that the 808 PureView is the... More

This phone is no contender for the smartphone crown

from NDTV (over 2 years ago)

If you're looking for a camera that can make calls, buy the Nokia 808, because those are the two things it does very well. However, if you're looking for a good email/ browsing/ social/ gaming experience, move on, because Symbian isn't the answer. Looking beyond the 808, Nokia has promised that the... More
