TechRadar review the Nokia 808 PureView
Hopefully you've been reading Steve's compendium of Nokia 808 PureView reviews (see links below), but if you'd like a second opinion we suggest you head over to TechRadar. They have undertaken an objective review, split into fourteen in-depth sections, which refreshingly doesn’t fall back on the tired old criticisms of Symbian. For example, it gives the Nokia Belle FP1 user interface a fair appraisal while rightly pointing out how Symbian Web fails to stand up against the built-in browsers of competing mobile platforms.
TechRadar's verdict is that the 808 PureView is "not for everyone" because of the device's relatively high SIM-Free price and lack of operator support here in the UK. This is a refreshing perspective given that some tech sites will be disregarding the technically superlative 808 PureView for no other reason that its Symbian operating system, which overlooks the millions of people who still enjoy their Symbian devices.
The review concludes by stating:
"For those of you out there that loved your Nokia N8s with its 12MP camera you'll love the Nokia 808 PureView with its 41MP camera and increased display and storage capacity."
