at that price, you either buy a nokia, or spend 1k more and buy the ZTE blade if he wants android or a nice smartphone. This one is neither here nor there except the camera.

Just got a blurb from htc about the htc One X. Quad Core, ICS, and the rest. There is also a (presumably much cheaqper) V with a single core processor. Both are with Sense 4.0.

I think that dropping a phone is a pretty good real-life test of what happens when you drop a phone! If Samsung's design as well as its structure contribute to the results, then that is part of the picture.

However, like head-on crash testing for cars, it is a limited picture. It simulates what might happen if, for instance, a phone is knocked off a table. It doesn't show what would happen if it slips out of one's hand and falls on its edge.

The test is valid, and certainly not FUD, but it is valid within limits only.

Yes, but if you put a bumper, the issue is mostly mitigated. Therefore the real world comment. I have enough clumsy friends/colleagues around me and none has a broken screen. YET

@Prateek M: Nice find. I think Nokia better start making camera's too. The only fly in the ointment is Belle and the UI. I only hope it doesn't lag and hang. I have had the N8 when it was on Anna and then Belle. 41 MP camera hope the website doesn't have a typo!?! I read through the link. Let's keep fingers crossed. Hope Nokia uses it on a better OS like Windows 8 and brings it out as competition to the iPhone 5. It may be priced something like 50K Sure cash has no value these days.

41 megapixel, but still chugs on symbian. would have eaten up the market if it ran on windows




In other news entry level windows phone. the lumnia 610 launched. expected to cost sub-10k

Holy moly whatta phone! nokia you rock.

This is innovation! 41 MP camera. I dont care if it doesnt sell. It is still significant technological innovation, something Nokia was known for, until the world got lost in the stupid race of cores! In any case the latest Symbain very much looks like an Android skin visually!!! I would absolutely love to own this phone!!!

Nokia 808 Pure view is supposed to cost 450 euro to hit markets in May 2012.
Nokia 808 PureView Has a Monster 41-Megapixel Camera
Next they put this camera into the Hubble Space Telescope.

It maybe luck, it maybe the real deal. Who knows. But the test was fair and iPhone failed. Samsung uses Corning Gorilla glass which is like crazy tough. I have dropped my Galaxy S(uses gorilla glass too) quite a few times from waist height, and not a scratch.

Do you know people in China actually pay to have "Sent from my Iphone" appended to their message to "show-off!!!" See the link People in China paying to have ?sent from my iPhone? appended to messages

Do you know of any other phone that enjoys this kind of thing? Even Vertu?
I don't know about you mate, but whenever i see an iPhone user, i go what a dork(not that i have anything personal, its just how apple users are). iPhone in India is very expensive only through contract, otherwise it is not as expensive. Many Indians get it unlocked from foreign countries where it sells cheap. iPhone ain't exclusive. Out of 10 people i know, at least 2 will have an iPhone. Its become very common and the snob value just shows that people buy it for show off, which ain't cool anymore.

Goto Hong Kong and you will find that everyone has an iPhone there. Quite literally everyone because when you buy it on contract, you don't have to pay for the phone. So it is not that exclusive in China(im guessing the same for big cities in China)

Now why I have come to this conclusion is, I have rooted my SGS2 and I'm using checkrom. The guy who has made this rom is an indian, I had a chat with him and had told him of my intentions of buying Note. He asked me to wait as SGS3 is getting launched in Q2 of 2012, Note has a bigger screen as compared to SGS2 but even after rooting note's cpu cannot be over clocked, that means if i overclock my SGS2 then it is faster than note. Typing with one hand is a little very difficult on note which is a little let down even if you have a big hand. But there is no denying that samsung galaxy not is a very nice phonopad.
Note's CPU can be over clocked. Just google it Note is a big phone, thats true. Hell, SGS1 and SGS2 are big phones too. It is difficult to control them with one hand :P

Nokia 808 PureView first sample shots -- feast your eyes (update: GigaPan them!) -- Engadget

the sample pics are sexy. How good is symbian belle as a operating system? Especially for net surfing, youtube and exchange email. Asking because I will be seriously considering this phone when it comes out. as I sure lots of others will

I agree with you, But the best I could see was that it can be overclocked to 1.7 GHZ stably. Sorry the info that I had was a little old. But still i stick to the size comment, you can still hold sgs1 and sgs2 in single hand and still type, but if you try typing using note then your thumb cannot reach the end so that makes a big difference. I also have been informed by numerous note users that they were more happy on sgs2 as it was more smoother and much brighter/better screen and few more features. But I still say that note is a very nice phonolate ((Phone + tablet/2)).

41MP, someone must be off his rocker. You need less that 4MP for an excellent A4 print!
