    You forgot to mention one area, where N808 outperforms the competition by light years and it’s not its camera: Nokia rich recording. It is almost unbelievable what they achieved and how clear it records sounds of ANY volume.

      Mades, you are correct that I left that out. However, I have two videos demonstrating Nokia Rich Recording ready for uploading. That phenomenon is better demonstrated than just talked about.

      Like you said, it blows the competition out of the water.

    ”The web browser on the 808 is a much improved one. It is version 8.3.2.21 of the NokiaBrowser. It is very usable, and has served me so well that the thought of installing a third party browser has not once occurred to me”

    i can imagine using belle fp2 browser. I can count the no of times have used it. Not that its bad but am so used to operamini. Nothing else does it for me!!

    I am so glad that I can once again leave a web page open, go do a hundred things, and when I come back, it is still sitting there as I left it. On the One X, leaving a webpage open for that long and go doing a hundred other things means that when I launch the browser again, the page is reloaded afresh. However it is that Android handles multi-tasking, I prefer how Belle OS does it. Much better, in my opinion.

    I could not agree MORE.

    Now I can breathe normally. it is not because of passivity of memory. not because of an old Android version.

    Multitasking is simply not on the same pedestal for Android as it is on the Symbian/Belle platform..

    The basics: call quality and radio frequency capabilities. Should anyone include social networking, as long as there are capable 3rd party alternatives, I’d say that’s covered as well. What are apps for? But in my opinion, there are no apps for the basics, as defined by me above.

    LOL. More like politicians or rather lawyers. I like that, in fact I enjoyed that response. But the besics shouldn’t be going back to the root of mobiles or telephony. Since we are talking smartphones, it ought to include those features that appear to drive the adoption of smartphones. Of course this could be viewed as a biased, but the truth for me is that what influences my decision are hardware and the core OS and the ability to enhance the features of the OS easily without unnecessary hindrance. And that will truly mean the same thing as your definition of the basics here but I’m not sure such view is widely accepted.

    Does it not contradict your former declaration that the PureView is a failure when it comes to social networking or you don’t consider social networking part of basics in mobiles currently?

    Good one. When Mr. Mo takes up a Nokia device for review, I can only imagine Mr. Web or any other English referee officiating a match between Manchester United and any other team. You simply know the winner before hand. LOL. Don’t mind me Mr. Mo. I’m just kidding there. On a serious note, this statement:

    It all boils down to personal needs and wants. But if you want a modern smartphone that excels at the basics, and then delivers the best camera and multimedia experience on the planet, you cannot go wrong with the Nokia 808 PureView.

    Does it not contradict your former declaration that the PureView is a failure when it comes to social networking or you don’t consider social networking part of basics in mobiles currently?

    Belle is more or less Android clone and can only be good when married with Nokia’s excellent hardware, the more reason people consider it a mistake when Nokia chose Windows Phone instead of Android.
