StuffMagazine on the Nokia 808 PureView.

Here’s Lucy Hedges from the UK StuffMagazine giving a quick review of the Nokia 808 PureView. Whilst you might stop listening once the disappointment of Symbian is mentioned, Lucy gives PureView quite a good explanation. Much better than I had expected.

  • Whilst overall pleased with the camera, ‘no denying the quality of these snaps’, Lucy mentions that it’s a shame there isn’t better image stabilisation.
  • Camera UI wise is apparently over complicated outside of auto.  (I can sort of agree, there’s some further refinement that could be done.)
  • Camera wise, it’s next gen stuff but else where is less impressive.
  • S^3 apparently feels like an older version of Android – but feels unfinished, refusing to respond with glitches never far away.
  • Music brilliant, music player buggy.
  • Browsing sluggish, text rendering jagged on nHD
  • Bright colourful screen
  • Thick phone
  • Pro for HDMI and NFC
  • If you thought the megapixel race was over, think again.
Here’s where I’ll disagree hugely. Apparently it would be unlikely that you’d use the 808 in preference of a compact camera? Seriously, you mean the compact cameras that the 808 demolishes to the point it has to stand against DSLRs to really see how far 808 can be pushed?
  • Super modern camera bolted on remarkably outdated OS.
  • Same comment as all other reviewers – they want this camera in a Lumia. Shame Nokia’s too slow to get this done in time, eh.
