Nokia is a name synonymous with reliability however; the technology giant has lost much of its ground in the market due to the lack of newest features in its handsets. Now the company has tried to make a difference by shelling out a 41 MP camera in a phone that it calls the Nokia 808 Pureview. By doing this, the company aims to dive into the future of photography technology integrated with smartphone but what will be the outcome of this for the company only time will tell. A look at the features first:
- 41 Megapixel Camera With Xenon Flash And LED Flash
- 1080p 30fps Recording
- Symbian Belle fp1
- 5.1 Dolby Surround Support
- 1.3 GHz Processor
- 512MB RAM
- 16 GB On-Board Storage
- USB OTG
- FM Transmitter
Pros: One look at the handset and you know it has been build to last. The tough robust exterior of the phone speaks laurels about the reliability that the company is famous for. But moving on to the main feature of this phone, the camera and you have to know that amazing is not even close to what the lens of this device offer. The awesome zoom capabilities are another feature that will put other phone to shame. Simply put, this phone is more of a camera that is capable of making calls and playing games etc. The screen is also excellent that displays clear picture and sharp colours to enjoy the photos you click.
Cons: The greatest feature of this phone that it is a camera with capabilities of a phone is also a disadvantage of sorts. Firstly, about the OS: Until Nokia leaves behind its fondness with its dying Symbian OS and adopts more trending OS it cannot make a mark in the market. Secondly, the weight of the device due to the heavy duty camera is far more than the light weight options in the market offering decent camera capabilities. Lastly, this device is not available with any protection for the camera which is the only feature that will attract the customers.
So if you are an ardent photographer and are looking for a union of your camera with your smartphone then go for this device. Otherwise there are much better options in the market for you.
