Here is a nice detailed look at the Nokia 808 PureView. Original text is in German but let the translator do the work to get the gist of it. It seems to make enough sense here (sometimes it mangles translations, sometimes it’s quite readable).
The review mentions a flaw somewhere about not being able to use the front camera to take self portraits. I don’t know if that’s an error in translation but I was able to select the front camera when I had it.
They seem very pleased with the camera though the translator kinda jumbled up what they were trying to say there.
Thanks Dieter for the tip!
