The touch screen has a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels and is made out of ‘unbreakable' Gorilla Glass. The screen has a practical size of 4.0 inch, which is pretty nice to work with. Unfortunately, this nHD resolution is very low for this size. Anyway, the screen gives nice, vivid colors.
The ‘color' black is shown clearly, which shows especially well when the screen is locked. Of course, we have to thank ClearBlack for that, the special technology with which the PureView is equipped. It is possible to adjust the screen's time-out, just like the type size. The auto rotate works just fine, and certainly isn't tuned to sensitively. There's nothing more annoying than a screen that'll jump into the horizontal mode by the slightest touch, but fortunately, this is not the case with the Nokia 808 PureView.
To operate the phone, you make use of the key under the screen, but in practice you'll mostly use the touch screen. The menu consists of four home screens that can be filled with widgets, but you'll always find the symbols with which you can reach the application overview, call and adjust the menu. Swyping between the different screens is very easy.
