The Verge has published heir review of the Nokia 808 PureView.
The most important section is Camera. This is 5 years worth of work. Has it been worth it?
“Choose your favorite exaggerated epithet and apply it to the 808 PureView’s camera. It doesn’t matter what it is, it’ll be true. This phone’s image quality is so far ahead of the competition that it really has no competition. There are two reasons for my unbridled enthusiasm: firstly, at 5 megapixels, the PureView camera delivers, without doubt, the most detailed and natural images of any cameraphone, and secondly, it’s capable of shooting 38-megapixel pictures that match or exceed the quality of most smartphones. Think about that latter point for a moment.”
The phone scores 6.1 overall as unfortunately they’re not fans of Symbian. Vlad feels that the hardware is let down by the software.
