Engadget Review

The PureView 808 is easily the best cameraphone yet. But if you're obsessed with imaging quality, be prepared to compromise on performance and usability.

Pros
  • Best cameraphone everSuperb video and audio recordingScreen easily viewable outdoors
Cons
  • Low-res displayApp store lacks the range and breadth of rivalsSymbian Belle OS is temperamental and unintuitive
