Here’s a review of the Nokia 808 PureView from WP eyes, specifically over at WMPU.
The conclusion is not unlike most across the blogosphere. Excellent hardware, stunning camera but stumbles on software.
Hardware – solid in hand, sturdy. Great additional storage, pentaband, battery.
Audio, loud clear,
Camera, sharpest images imaginable. Best that exists right now
Software: lag throughout UI, Slow unresponsive at times, keyboard one of the worst. Terrible browser. But great to see Nokia apps like Nokia maps, Nokia transit, Nokia Music.
(Input via keyboard and browsing the web – two key things that should have been done right. Shame as Belle FP1 is night and day vs S^3).
If you are a camera lover then go for the 808. A more balanced camera smartphone for the masses is the upcoming 920. Judging by the number of SIII’s in the UK, these peeps there at least don’t mind phones with large footprints/screens.
Cheers shallow ocean shoal for the tip!
