Nokia 808 PureView Review
Nokia has changed the history by announcing its new mobile “Nokia PureView 808 Smartphone” packing a jaw-dropping 41MP camera. This has put Nokia ahead in the race as there is hardly any camera phone in the market that can capture better quality images than Pureview..
The 808's camera, which includes a Carl Zeiss optics lens with XENON flash, is also capable of full HD 1080p video recording and also comes equipped with pixel oversampling technology for creating the highest quality images that no other smartphone has yet accomplished.
What makes it different !
Nokia 808 PureView: Camera
- The big draw here is the 41MP camera. This sort of megapixel count hasn't been seen on a phone before, and is usually limited to medium format pro cameras.
- The Carl Zeiss lens is teamed with Nokia's pixel over-sampling technology, which has been designed to produce sharp pictures, even in low light conditions, along with the ability to save the images in compact file sizes for easy sharing.
Nokia 808 PureView: Design
- The Nokia 808 PureView sports a rubberised finish.
- The rubber finish adds a nice bit of grip, and while the phones fits reasonably comfortably in the hand,
- But the device does feel slightly heavy to hold.
Nokia 808 PureView: Features
- The Nokia 808 PureView also offers Dolby headphone technology, along with Nokia Rich Recording Mic tech for capturing sound with as little interference as possible.
- Nokia 808 PureView also features exceptional video recording capabilities, with high quality image and sound.
- Shoot video in 1080p Full HD, with up to 4x lossless zoom for smooth, consistent image capture with pin-sharp detail.
- Recorded sound is crystal clear, and uses a new unique digital microphone with specialized algorithms to allow recording of hi-fi audio at levels of 140db – beyond the capabilities of human hearing.
- The Nokia 808 PureView sports a 4-inch screen.
- The phone is being sold on its impressive camera,having said that, images are clear and hues are bright and punchy so we can't complain too much. It actually is !
- Protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass with a Nokia ClearBlack display of 360 X 640 pixels.
Nokia 808 PureView: Performance
Nokia 808 PureView: Verdict
- Packing a preposterously high megapixel count of 41 on its camera, the Nokia 808 PureView is certainly an interesting phone to lead the Symbian range.
- The camera also beats many basic dedicated digi-cams with its powerful image processing chip.
- The impressive camera tech means that the phone isn't the slimmest around, with a chassis that looks more like a rugged, waterproof phone.
- Buying Nokia 808 PureView only for its camera and above all with a Symbian OS installed in it at a high price might feel a little uneasy with so many fantastic android phones available in the market.
