The Nokia 808 PureView mobile phone is one of the better looking phones in the Nokia stable. I have always liked the Lumia range of mobile phones as it is clean and square. The PureView is a turn from the normal for Nokia with a very smart looking phone that actually feels very good in your hand.
The only downside for me is that protrusion at the rear where the camera is located. It makes the phone feel unbalanced in the hand. The specs of the Nokia 808 PureView reminds me of another phone in the Lumia range called the Nokia Lumia 1020 mobile phone. Its all high-end from end to end and the PureView is a cut under this in terms of what it offers. The Nokia 808 PureView does not offer 4G and only offers the 2G and 3G network abilities..
Released in 2012 the Nokia 808 comes with a AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and also comes with the Nokia ClearBlack display much like the Nokia Lumia 710 and the Nokia Lumia 1020 mobile phones. The sound on the phone comes with the usual and standard vibration; MP3 and WAV ringtones however this mobile phone also includes Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby headphone enhancement which comes as standard on all the highend mobile phones from Nokia such as the Nokia 625 phone.
The phone comes with a microSD slot to upgrade the memory to 32GB and it also comes with 16 GB storage, 1 GB ROM and 512 MB of RAM. Data communication wise it comes with GPRS Class 33, Edge Class 33. The speed off from this phone is HSDPA at 14.4 Mbps and also HSUPA at 5.76 Mbps. There is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA with UPnP technology.
The camera on this phone if highend being a Carl Zeiss 41 MegaPixels (38 MP effective, 7152 x 5368 pixels) with autofocus and a Xenon flash. The 1/1.2” camera sensor gives you clear crisp pictures. The large framed video plays very well at 1080p@30fps which gives you excellent video with lossless digital zoom. There is also a basic secondary camera on this phone.
The Nokia Belle OS powers the phone with an older 1.3 GHz ARM 11 and Broadcom BCM2763 chipset to round it off. It is a bit underspec considering the type of camera on the phone. HTML5 surfing, GPS and FM radio is standard. with a standby time of just under 3 weeks and a talktime of 11 hours the Nokia 808 does very well. The manual for the mobile pohne has been added below to see what it is you will be buying and getting from this phone. You can also run the Nokia PC suite on this mobile phone.
