I've been surprised by two reviews of the Nokia 808 PureView today. In one remarkable review (to put it mildly), the reviewer from TechCentral.co.za compares the device to Dolly Parton... I would only like to quote "the problem is that it’s also a phone. It’s a great camera, but a decidedly mediocre phone". Oh well, that's too many words for this review already.
Yes, a new comparison of four high end smartphones/camphones - call 'm what you like. This time PocketNow is comparing picture and video quality of the Apple iPhone 4S, the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Nokia 808 PureView and the HTC One X. We of course now the outcome already by now, but still, it's interesting to see how other people prove you're right ;-) Below is the video, you will find all pictures in the link.
It's actually moving me a bit to see how incredibly happy the US customers at Amazon.com are with their Nokia 808 PureView. I tried to find a few adequate quotes to prove this, but there's such a tremendous amount of them that just one will have to do: "The Camera is - human languages lack an adjective that would deserve the outstanding and phenomenal quality, power, and resolution of 808."
The headline says it all right? I you're still in doubt about wanting to get the Nokia 808 PureView, here's not just another review to sharpen your mind, it's part three of Steve Litchfield's breathtaking review-in-progress of the device. This time he focusses on performance and multimedia and I think it's a must read even if you own the Nokia 808 already. Well done Steve, I'm looking forward to part four!
I have a hard time reading them, but I can't ignore them either: the reviews that rave about the camera quality of the Nokia 808 PureView, but will end up saying it is almost unusable because of the platform it's running on. I've written a blog about it before, so this is the second one, I know.
