Reasonably happy, good phone overall,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nokia 808 PureView Sim Free Mobile Phone - Black (Electronics)
The phone arrived in good time and I really like it.
Negatives are: there is no warranty so I couldnt register it with Nokia Care. Because this phone wasnt on contract anywhere I couldnt get any help from my contract supplier to explain why the internet wouldnt work on my phone, I couldnt get Nokia Care to help because my phones IMEI number is not registered with them due to the warranty issue. To get your phone set up for internet is pretty complicated for the lay-person and although I got it to work by accident I still can't email pictures and when I MMS a picture I seem to get charged a lot by my contract company. I have downloaded configuration SMS messages from my mobile line supplier but doesnt seem to make any difference.
The phone is outdated, well the software is but thats ok with me. I love the look of the phone, the software, the usability and of course the camera is AMAZING !!!! and that alone for me is enough, I dont really care about apps etc that much.
Overall the phone is great but if you are like me and not too savvy when it comes to technical stuff then getting some things like internet, connectivity etc set up ok will be a real pain for you. One or 2 ppl I have chatted to on the net havent had any issues so maybe its because they had a decicated mini-sim card in the phone rather than the 'size-adjustable' one I had and whether that made any difference who knows !!
