Find it funny that in all the footage they're using all kinds of stuff to use the screen and in reality it's no better than anything else. I remember seeing a demo after the event of sumone who wud swipe the iPhone really fast for like two seconds, the phone would move on the desk and not give it a chance, even using the ends of his fingers. Where as showing off the Lumia he'd press down smoother and firmer with the tips of his finger and take his time lol.


When Nokia are showing stuff off at events or any one for that matter, you cannot ever believe them, they're gonna bull**** to sell their phone. Just wait for the real reviews and go see the phone yourself before making a blind decision. It's like the camera and how the video they pretended was of the Nokia 920 and then someone spotted the reflection of a bigger camera. How when they compared those night shots between phones the 808 is somehow worse than the 920? Obviously they've made the others look worse by turning off night mode and what ever else.

This is not true, there are photo comparisons with night mode on also. This pics were made from,, the verge'' and also engadget made some comparison pics with night mode when they was in Finland. So stop talking bull****, cause you have no idea.

Then how do you explain the 808 being worse when it's got the better camera?

Also how do you explain the press shots being so smooth and perfect but in real world shots by people other than Nokia they're all grainy and poor? Also I know for a fact that the GS3 didn't have night mode on in those pictures because it came out as that and they refined it.

Lol. Way to go. thanks for the review.

I personally was really sad when I watched them and saw, as you stated, that Wifi turns off on sleep/standby. Its so obvious to make it optional. I dont want my 3G limit going off when I am covered with wifi both at work and home and push notification is always on. Plus skydrive wifi backup of photos and videos, those shouldn't stop just because phone goes to sleep. I mean like if I update something on my pc/notebook and it auto-syncs to my skydrive, then it will only START to sync on my phone when and if I wake it up??? Too bad.
Also similarly what happend if on standby and Skype call comes in. Does it switch to wifi when I pick up? That needs some seconds to reconnect doesn't it?

In short, common MS what the hell where you thinking? And you had a beta tested 7.0 for more that a year. Didn't anyone in your guru team notice why its stupid to not have option for this???

Wifi goes off after 1 minute in standby if there is no traffic. If you are downloading in standby it doesnt go off.

Not really a review, but imo the best hands-on video yet, 18 minutes long.

Huh why all the hate?
Ask the random Canadien guy () for example how he felt about the night shots? You can find tons real life pictures taken with Lumia 920.
Lumia 920 takes best low light shots out there, 808 will remain the best camera phone, but that's not a big surprise. Nobody is buying 808 phone with huge hump on the back.


Anyways so far looking really good. Will likely order white Lumia 920 by the end of this week.
