Choosing a 4:3 ratio gives you a maximum of 38MP while 16:9 photos come in at 34MP. The main advantage of the higher resolution is the extra scope for cropping into your shots. Take a look at our test pictures below to see how far in you can get.

There's no optical zoom, and because you're shooting through a wide-angle lens, closer objects take most of the pixels while distance subjects are pushed to the centre of the image.</p> <p>However, the sensor allows the 808 to perform a digital zoom effect while maintaining respectable detail levels. In fact this is really just cropping into the image, but it's done in realtime as you frame your shot. The zoom range is roughly equivalent to a 3x optical zoom on a compact camera, but this increases when shooting video.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="280" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Nokia-808-Video.png?1373008630" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Nokia 808 PureView – video </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>In reality the zoom effect is easily beaten by any half-decent compact camera, but there's no denying the quality of the stills and hi-def video. Touch-to-focus is swift and can create some pleasing depth-of-field effects, especially with video. It's a shame there isn't better image stabilisation nor a 50/60fps mode for video, but otherwise it shoots excellent movies. The camera app itself could do with an overhaul.

You get sliding homescreens, widgets, icons for apps that you can drag and drop wherever you like, and there's even a pull-down notification menu.

There’s an incredible level of detail when you zoom in, as you’d expect from a 41MP image. Of course, that comes at the cost of space – the image we snapped was 7MB and we’ve heard of others up to 12MB.</p><p>Sadly, we’re told there’s no way to resize in camera, so you’re forced to make a choice between shooting something for Facebook, or shooting it for print. You might even miss that double rainbow while you’re thinking about it. A neat feature lets you crop to zoom. It’s a nice touch, but with this many pixels about, you can probably just crop it later.</p><p>Despite our reservations, there’s no denying that the 808 PureView’s optics are truly mind blowing. And the €450 price tag will tempt camera geeks towards choosing this as their next phone. </p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/nokia-808-pureview-collage_0.jpg?1364396762" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_2_223.png?1364396762" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Nokia 808 PureView – phone </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Honestly?

We’re just not sure we can bring ourselves to think this will be a sensible choice of phone for more than a handful of people. Even so, our minds are blown, and that could well inform an ill-judged purchasing decision.
