1. Best camera resolution ever [Huawei P30 Pro ~8% worse], moreover: giant sensor 1/1.2”, nd filter, xenon flash, ability to take pictures at 41.5 Mpix and 40meg file size [with Osenok mod]
2. Best audio recorder [Pristine 96Khz recs with very rich harmonics ]
3. Stunning durability [Lg V30+ headphone jack broken after 1 year of careful exploitation, Nokia still running like a tank, no backlashes]
4. TOP PRIVACY: no ads, no data mining, no spyware, no voice recording, no location pinging
5. One of the best sound output [LG V30+ a bit better though]
6. Excellent screen brightness under direct sun light
7. Very lightweight operating system and apps
8. 1080FHD video: up to 20 mbit/s [with some modifications]

Also i would like to share my software list:
SISTORE – Symbian playstore (you can download almost all of apps from it)
ALWAYS ON – keep your screen turned on
APPSTOP – kill unneeded or freezed apps in a very fast way
AUDIOREC PRO – very high quality audio recorder (precise 96Khz recordings with rich harmonics)
AUTO OFF – turns off your phone on a schedule
AUTOSTART MANAGER – control which apps launching at phone startup
BBIRTHDAY – birthday notifications
BELLECLEANER – system cleaner
BOLDBEAST RECORDER – quality recorder of your calls (without beeps)
CALL&SMS FILTER – very lightweight spam blocker ( ~80Kb in RAM)
CAMERA (MOD by Osenok) – Quality mod of original camera (adds 41.5mp, superfine compression, file size up to 40 megs)
CHESS V – ancient board game
CONVERTER – converter of different measures
COUNTDOWN TIMER – countdown timer with widget support
CUTE PHONE – launch applications in a modern way [swipes, gestures]
DUKTO – sync your files with your PC via WiFi
FLICKY CALC – neat scientific calculator
FONT ZOOMER – change your system fonts
LCG JUKEBOX – hi-quality audio player with variety formats supported: mp3, ogg, flac, ape and even tracker formats like mod, s3m, xm, it.
LINGVO X3 – language translator
MAGIC BRUSH – excellent painting program
MYEXPLORER – modern file manager with wireless file transfer to your PC and file safe
QOOBATTERY – check your battery status
QOOCALENDAR – neat calendar
QOOSYSTEM – system process explorer
QUICKAPP – launch application from lock screen
RAMBLOW – clean your Ram from junk
REBOOT ME – lightning fast reboot in one tap
RND RINGTONE – random ringtone selector
SAFEBOX – store your passcodes in a safe

Hope that will make sense for somebody!

Hi there! Well, actually it has more things than many modern phones don't have

Xenon flash, 2nd largest sensor (just behind the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-CM1 that has 1-inch sensor), HDMI port, 3.5 audio jack, TV-out, FM transmitter, NFC, removable battery, camera button, high-quality stereo microphones (maybe still the king in recording quality?) etc

I haven't found any Symbian category in XDA, but I would like to see one. I have plenty more apps to recommend (and hundreds installed in my 808), but I am also trying to revive some old internet-related apps to restore as much functionality as possible. You have the SIStore installed, so you can check the first app that I revived by changing it completely to the ESPN FC Web (for the soccer fans). I will keep up with the efforts, but since I am not a developer, I would appreciate any assistance from any developer. I am sharing the result for free of course.

I want to restore Clouds, News apps, New Movies/trailers, facebook chat/messenger through new API, weather apps, etc

Any assistance/advice is welcome!

And yes, 808 is still the king! :)

Great to hear that someone value this great device.

Ah CM1, yeah. It can be better, but not in all scenarios.

And remeber that n808 is more compact, CM1 is quite bulky.


Here is some full-sized examples of n808 mightiness (see attached zip)

Amazing photos!

In many aspects, I love the 808! It is very easy to grip and use it with one hand for sure! CM1 is not that far though. It is quite narrow, and only slightly bigger than the 808, it can also be used with one hand, and although not as easy as with the 808, sure way easier than all flagships since then (even 5.5-inch screen is considered as small nowadays!)
