hey sumsung guys.. In a HD resolution display even a two megapixel picture can be seen great. So you think your sumsung smartphone takes great photos. But dare to compare your sumsung smartphone photos with nokia n8. You Can see the reality. A great camera, media functionality is much used then a quad core processor. Feel it!

The dumbest thing is that 41MP Cameraphone will take pureview photos in oonly cheap 2MP/3MP/5MP/8MP resolutions and the truth is galaxy s 3's 8mp photo is better than pureview's 8mp shit.

not sure that a 720 is necessary. the 620 itself has mainly better specs than 710.

NINE? 808 purview has a full 41 megapixel sensor my friend (before talking nonsense do some lessons) and is a full 38 megapixel effective camera (7152 x 5368, you do the math), it cannot take 41 megapixel shots cause they will be round, now, wouldn't they? It is advertised as 41 megapixel and not 38 megapixel cause the pure-view technology uses the whole sensor for it's oversampling technique. In pureview mode, you can take 8 megapixel, 5 megapixel and 3 megapixel pictures. In the best quality you have ever seen in a mobile before. In custom mode, you can shot 38 megapixel images. Now, if you don't understand that, attend school and stop being dum*.

If you would just read about WHY, then you wouldn't make this useless comment anymore. The real question is: WHO NEEDS A OCTA-CORE CPU? This is the real question...

This is exactly the phone (rumored) I'm hoping will replace my N8. WP8+awesome camera+high call quality, stereo sound recording and excellent noise dampening=win.

The only thing that they absolutely need to do is make sure it has an expansion slot! No mSDHC card is massive fail for me. I use my N8 to record tons of videos and pictures, MP3 player with 10GB+ music on it, video clips to stream to TV or on the phone, and store applications on. With a higher quality camera, the recordings will be even higher bitrate, so I'd need at least 64GB onboard with no expansion slot and that will probably be ridiculous in pricing.

And please stop trolling, people. You really should learn how things work before you open your mouths. No need to be a fanboy to appreciate what's happening here. Once you start to understand the technologies and ecosystem at work here, you'll see why competitors to Nokia will be falling short or pushed to excellence in the next few years.

Regarding the Camera:
The MegaPixels aren't everything, but Nokia has developed an awesome type of "pixel binning", which allows the processor to select the most useful pixels when scaled down from higher resolutions. Go look at picture comparisons. Also, the sensor size and lens is the more important parts of a camera. A larger sensor allows for better reception of light, and that light's quality is determined by the lens. Carl Zeiss lenses are legendary. That's a proven fact. Ask any professional photographer and they'll agree. Only higher end Nokia phones have these lenses. That alone is saying something.

If you don't use your camera on your phone, then you obviously have no idea what this is all about and shouldn't bother commenting! However, if you own a discrete camera (e.g. SLR, DSLR, digital handheld, your father's Olympus OM-1), then you really need to take a hard look at how valuable and convenient high quality cameraphones are. I really believe discrete camera days are numbered with how convenient and qualifying cameraphones are becoming (to the 99 percentile). Of course, there will always be hardcore, die-hard fans to anything that becomes passé, so a market will always exist for less useful devices.

I digress. Even if you're not a fan of Nokia, be a fan of the innovation and competition that will stem from this. I think we can all agree that a market with nothing new is boring.

Appreciate it for what it is. :)

Nokia's standard design. Best camera specs, crap screen. An upgrade in one thing, a broken spec in another. That's what they've always done. Now they wonder why they going out of business.

Does everyone want to know why Nokia never went with Android ? One word "Ecosystem" try using your Lumia 920 or Surface tablet as Xbox glass it can only get better especially when 720 hits...... Can't comment on the Sony Playstation and how it interacts within its own Ecosystem........Therein lies something else that is gonna appeal to the masses if marketed correctly how Windows 8 can interact across a variety of manufacturers and allow end user to have same experience......
