The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and the Nokia 808 PureView are somewhat similar products, with both the devices aimed at cameraphone enthusiasts looking at packing the best camera on a phone. While the approach taken by the two companies are largely different, the intention remains the same.

The Nokia 808 PureView, a cameraphone with a 41 Megapixel sensor, was a major disruption in the field of Smartphone cameras. It is a well known fact that smartphones are rapidly replacing the mainstream and traditional “point and shoot” cameras. With the 808 PureView, Nokia set a high benchmark for imaging quality for a smartphone. However, it had shortcomings in software. Running on Symbian, it was not much loved by the time it released. While it had its own advantages, it was still not able to cater to current needs, leading to one of the main reasons why Nokia switched to Windows Phone. However, it is not unnatural to feel that the technology is bound to end up in other Nokia camera phones, recently fortified with the rumoured and upcoming Nokia EOS PureView, purportedly running on Windows Phone 8.
It’s been a long time coming, and it’s a given that Nokia’s sprucing up its efforts in the camera department again, after a controversial, but successful launch of the Nokia Lumia 920, a different PureView device. But is it also a given that the new Nokia PureView will be as good as the old one? Currently, we would say no, unless drastic changes happen. What drastic changes are we talking about? Read on past the break to find out.

Every once in a while a phone is released which showcases the best of technology possible at that time. Back in 2007, it was the Nokia N95 which showcased exactly how to build a mobile computer. The N95 truely was a revolutionary device packing everything but the kitchen sink under its plastic shell ! The very same year Apple announced the iPhone. It single handedly defined how to make a great and easily understood user interface and made Symbian look clunky and redundant overnight. Since then we’ve had various permutations and combinations of the formulae attempted to various degrees of success.
Fast forward to 2012 and we have another revolutionary device. The Nokia 808 PureView is hands down the best camera phone ever released. In fact it might hold its own for a few years given that the phone which comes closest is still only the 808’s two year old predecessor.
