Nokia has recently announced the specifications of its much-anticipated 808 PureView smart phone. It boasts latest Symbian Bella OS, 4-inch high quality display screen, 41-megapixel massive camera and many other advanced features. Also, its advanced sensor is paired with new five-component Carl Zeiss lens supported by a refreshed flash with twice the strength as noticed in Nokia N8.
Nokia has concentrated more than 5 years in developing the PureView technology for smartphones which you can clearly notice it in 808 handsets. Most of the smart phone space is occupied by the camera itself which has some negative effect on the overall style of the handset. The device feels bulky at 13.9mm thickness and most of the phone’s back is covered by the 41 MP sensor, effective Xenon flash, Carl Zeiss optics support and the loud-speaker.
The handset boasts 1400mAh decent battery pack, a micro SIM card and micro SD for storage expansion. Integrated NFC antenna is also packed perfectly in this phone. The plastic used doesn’t feel or look cheap at all and the handset feels sturdy in the hands. 808 Pureview has 4-inch Gorilla Glass AMOLED screen, which is quite common on many mid-range smartphones today. Headphone jack is placed well at the top and is accompanied by a pair of other ports like micro HDMI and micro USB ports.
When it comes to the latest Nokia’s OS Symbian Bella with latest feature pack, it definitely lags behind the likes of iOS and Android. Also, the chunky handset doesn’t impress many smart phone lovers as modern trends are directed towards slim smartphones. 808 Pureview scores good marks in colour reproduction that is essential for any smart phone focusing primarily on imaging. 1.3GHz processor of PureView is barely efficient to keep up with the running applications and powerful camera features.
808 PureView is not compatible with 3rd party headsets. So, you will have to compromise with bundled Nokia’s ear buds. Both left and right buds looks similar as the labels are obscured from the view. Nokia 808 takes time to load even simple applications like checking Nokia Store, opening gallery and preloaded apps. Bella OS is frustrating at times and it requires a major revamp.
Battery life of any smart phone depends on how you handle it. Nokia 808 PureView can survive for days when left idle. Games and video playback doesn’t drain excess of battery juice.
1. Best 41-megapixel camera phone ever made.
2. Superb audio/video recording capabilities.

1. Display seems to have a low resolution.
2. Too limited application support at Nokia App Store.
3. Bella (Latest Symbian OS) is unstable and temperamental.
Nokia 808 PureView is the best camera smart phone available in the market. But you need to compromise on usability and performance, if you are obsessed with high image quality. So, take your decision wisely without considering just the brand name.
