Weekly regional spotlight: Australia

This week on Nokia Connects we’re taking a trip down under to see what our Australian friends are up to. Considering Australia is the 6th largest nation in the world it has a fairly small population. Don’t worry though, it hasn’t stopped us tracking down those talking about Nokia.

Firstly we visit Adrien Cheng, who’s been taking a look at some images taken with the E72’s camera compared that of an iPhone. After reading this you may have some pre-conceptions about the results of said comparison, but if you take a look for yourself you can make your own mind up.

“Clearly the cameras both made slightly different exposure decisions. None were adjusted or biased by settings. Personally I think that the Nokia did a better job of getting in the entire scene without blow-outs of the whites.”

All the same, it’s pretty interesting and Adrian would like your feedback and thoughts on the matter so do let him know!

Next up we have a big rundown of the Lumia 800 from Richard. He mentioned his mother was considering purchasing one, so we shipped them both a phone to play with and review. This review is the result from that.

“It’s a quite nice matt black with a slight amount of texture to the plastic itself that makes it easy to hold but still smooth.”

After Richards initial first impressions post he describes what the phone is like right out of the box, detailing some of the contents too. Many of the comparisons made are to that of his iPhone, so if you are currently using one and are thinking of switching this may be a good read for you.

“The screen on this phone is absolutely beautiful and is slightly curved which actually seems to make the glass feel more slick than the screen of my iPhone.”

If you have any unanswered questions about Richard’s experience don’t hesitate to get in touch with him on Twitter, I’m sure he’ll be more than happy fill you in.

Are you based in Australia and have something to say about your Nokia experience? Let us know about it in the comments section or drop us a line on Twitter, we’d love to hear from you!
