Since the 808 is pretty much dead as a smartphone, wondering whether the camera and picture quality can rival any point and shoot for the same price (RM800).
Actually I am quite new to nokia 808, I only owned it since Nov 2015 (brought from ebay at a price of $119.99, converted and include shipping 600+). So i compare it to camera ranged rm600+-.
For a p&s camera at rm600 wont has a chance to set the shutter speed and iso etc, so in camera function and feature, I still support 808. I believe that the image quality of nokia 808 can easily beat out those 1/2.3" compact cam, with default 26/28mm focal length. And even in video I also believe 808 is better as it has led light for video.
The image quality of 808 can be compare with a rx100 (rm1k+-) and won't lose much in every aspect. And the main reason I choose 808 is for its portability, which has a compact camera (rx100 also a compact cam) image quality in your pocket. If you can find a used or new one at 500+-, just go for it. It will not fail you, I strongly suggest it as I also start from p&s -> rx100 -> mirrorless -> 808.
Ps: The photos I attached is by 808 during CNY, handheld (no tripod), no post editing.This post has been edited by zaxkong: Mar 22 2016, 06:55 PM Attached thumbnail(s)
