When a phone advertises the fact that it has a 41MP camera it’s going to catch your interest straight away. Using Nokia’s Symbian software instead of Windows 7 though could hold it back slightly with people who are looking for something a little different.
For people who are not that bothered by the Symbian issue though and wants to make use of the unique camera which can also record video in full HD 1080p it definitely has some good selling points which might just catch their interest. The question is how it stands up as an actual phone.
With its various colour choices and rubber casing this phone is not the most stylish model out there even though it does try, it just feels that it’s an under achiever in the mid-range phones. The rubber does give a good grip though which of course is a plus, especially when trying to take pictures. If you want a slim phone though with extra style, this is probably not the phone for you.
The 41MP camera is the main selling point of the phone. This lens is unique as normally phones do not have this power. You would normally find this power of lens on mid-range professional cameras so to see one on a phone like this really does create interest. Of course just because it’s got a strong lens does not mean the camera will produce good pictures. If the phone makes good use of the lens though there is potential for sharp images in any conditions, light or dark.
Along with the camera functionality this phone comes with Dolby headphone technology to give you the best possible sound. Along with this it has Nokia Rich Recording Mic technology which also promises crystal clear recording too.
Coming in at 4-inches the screen is quite small which is surprising when you look at the camera that is on offer. The resolution is also quite small but even with the drawback of the size the images are bright and clear so there are no obvious problems with this. It just would just have been nice though to have some size to use when it comes to taking pictures.
With only a 1.3ghz single core chip to power the phone this puts it in the mid-range market. It’s not the pretties out there, but looking at the camera this is of course the main selling point. For people who want to produce quality pictures from their phone this may be a nice option but you do have to wonder if people really wanted a camera so powerful would they just not buy an actual professional one instead of a phone?
