For casual snapshots in Auto mode without fiddling with any of the advanced settings ie. taking out the phone from the pocket, switch on the camera function and start snapping pictures, is the Pureview 808 a significant improvement over the N8 in areas of accuracy, detail, colour and low light performance?

In bright sunny conditions, the N8 takes great pictures. Only in low light conditions the N8 fails by producing pictures with grainy quality. In sunny bright conditions, is the difference between the Pureview 808 and N8 big or small? I guess small? In low light conditions, will the difference be significant or at least appreciable?

Would appreciate thoughts from those who own or have compared both. Thanks.

bro, based on my experience with N8 about 1 year and half is that N8 is very easy to use. You have like what, ISO / EV / WB / Contrast just like that and you are ready to shoot with any angles that you wanted. It will produce one of the most finest quality comparing to any camera phone (except 808) without a problem, inshaAllah! smile.gif

but with 808 PV, it is a bit pain on the ass to snap out pix with it plus the annoying ISO, banding issue that was unfixed until now. with 808 PV, you cannot pull out angle much, it will produce weird kind of picture (due to its 26mm wide angle which I think was too wide, should have stayed with 28mm instead). but if someone was keen with photography, I think they would truly love how 808 PV works with just the correct settings.

It is hardware. not that I am against wider angle but at least they could have tweak it to make it a little bit more natural pictures rather than producing a balloon/oval/stretched pictures shakehead.gif shakehead.gif shakehead.gif

This section seems so slow moving. Wonder why because to me 808 is the best cameraphone so far.

We are actually talking about the issues with the phone that happened 1 year after the owner bought it.

For a person who owned and still owns both the n8 and the 808 pureview, i find the 808 miles above of improvement over the n8.

The interface is easy to use and camera is much more responsive(eg, launching camera app with press of shutter button even at lock screen, having dedicated "green and red" buttons to easily close apps).

As for the picture quality, we don't have to go there lol
