The year 2017 marked the return of the iconic Nokia brand, in the able hands of new owner HMD Global. Nokia used nostalgia in the form of the reimagined Nokia 3310 to stir our attention, then released a slew of cheap and cheerful Android devices to reinject itself into the race. But none was more important than the flagship Nokia 8.
I’m a sucker for punishment. I really am. In the era of smartphones that are more powerful than computers, I decided to settle for less. Much less. Back to basics in fact. Only I’m not sure what the definition of “basic” is anymore. You see, I agreed to review the MYR300 Nokia 1.
When the Nokia 808 PureView smartphone made an appearance at Mobile World Congress 2012, it left mouths agape, tech-heads a-drooling and photographers shaking their heads in disbelief. The Nokia 808 PureView was the first smartphone to feature such advanced optics, and also marked Nokia’s last ever Symbian (“Nokia Belle”) smartphone to be produced. The 41MP wonder blew everything out of the water, and set a new benchmark in smartphone optics. Fast forward, Nokia has integrated second generation PureView optical technologies into the new Windows Phone-powered Lumia 1020. Launched in July 2013, the Nokia 808 PureView is now in Malaysia.
