Nokia 808 PureView: Has Nokia lost the war before it began?
According to me, Nokia 808 PureView is a failure of a phone! I agree with the technology and possibly the best camera on a phone till date. But what about the rest of the spec sheet?
Take a look:
|Screen Size||360 x 640 pixels, 4.0 inches|
170 gms and a 4″ screen with a measly resolution of 360 X 640 pixels? In the era of 720p pseudo HD screens?
It’s unbelievable, it’s stupid and it’s just not up to the mark! Pull up your socks Nokia, put your thinking caps on…
If I need a camera with a basic phone, which is what a pureview is minus it’s camera, probably I’d go buy a MUCH better Phone AND a MUCH better Camera and together they wouldn’t cost me as much as your phone. You want examples.. How about this?
Canon IXUS 230 HS – Rs. 12775 PLUS HTC One V – Rs. 17500
Total Cost: Rs. 30275
Speculated price of 808 PureView – Rs. 32000
There you go… Need more proof? I have a camera with optical zoom which, I speculate, can take better pictures than your phone. And I also have a phone which is much much (repeat for good measure) better specs and a better OS! And guess what, I also have a secondary camera, just in case, on my phone, which is quite capable by itself. And that’s not all.. I also have the flexibility of having the other safe, in case something happens with one of my devices, like the time you dropped your camera while taking a picture… Remember? You are not entirely out of options now!
Nokia… This is your epic fail according to me. You have lost the war before it began! Period.
