Nexus people, I need help! Trying to buy a nexus 4, but need persuasion.
My original plan was to buy a Nokia 808, and I did so twice. Both returned due to defects (seller is awful)
My goals for a phone were:
- Battery life: On 808's paltry battery, I managed over 300 photos with flash, leaving WiFi+BT on, 45 minutes of offline GPS, calling+texting, and still had over 50% battery after an entire day!
- Camera: Nokia 808 really has the best camera on the market hands down. More accurate, and slightly more detailed than the Lumia 1020. Falls short if you don't have a tripod at low light, but then again, 1020 would need one too for optimal results.
- Audio: An improvement from the N8. Sound really good on default, has more than enough volume for the DT880 but imo still needs an amp.
- Features: Please do not list me apps a features! Apps <> Features. Features are things like gyroscopes, or in Nokia 808's case, full offline maps in svg vector format, and even things like a built in FM transmitter!
I paid $334 for the 808, and the Nexus 4 has been marked down considerably. I know the 808 is lacking in other respects, e.g RAM/CPU, but imo does not need the extra horsepower. Everything works on a 1.3GHz CPU and small capacity battery.
As of now, my phone inventory consists of the Palm Pre 3, Huawei W1, Palm Treo 650, Nokia N73, and HP Veer 4G. 4 Dead OSes and a WP8.
Right now I am using a Walkman Z for music, Veer 4G for calling and connectivity, and now need a new camera... The Nokia 808 price hiked back to over $450 new, so the Nexus 4 certainly has a more attractive price.
Nokia 808 or Nexus 4+DSLR?
Price wise the Nokia 808 still wins, persuade me over to the Nexus crowd. Using Blazer for internet Q.Q
