NOKIA made a splash during this year's Mobile World Congress in February when it announced the Nokia 808 PureView, a phone with a whopping 41-megapixel sensor.
Even most cameras don't have a sensor with such a high megapxiel count which made us wonder if it is just a gimmick or if the PureView is the smartphone shutterbugs have been waiting for.
The PureView looks nothing like a modern slim smartphone but this can't be helped because the bulk is mainly due to the camera's protruding f/2.4 Carl Zeiss lens.
It has a solid build quality and feels good in the hand. The only problem is that the back is too smooth and doesn't give a good enough grip.
The 4in screen is protected by Gorilla Glass but it has a noticeably low resolution of 360 x 640-pixels which is surprising by today's standards. When looked at closely images and text tend to look pixelated.
Despite this the screen isn't all that bad - it has decent viewing angles and the colours are quite vibrant and bright.
