However, if you really need auto-focus while filming, there is a mod that enable it. (:

I know what iph 5 will introduce; it is sensor based or lens based image stabiliser!! putting 1080p or 12mp sensor are useless but image stabilisation helps recording movie or still. Apple follows nothing instead it innovates from old tech used in other product categgory.

> In reply to [deleted post]Hey Zac, Something similar happened to me but with the HD2:

1st HD2 had signal problems, traded it in for another HD2

2nd HD2 worked for 2 weeks then the Hardware Speaker went out and the only way I could hear Anything (Even my own Ringtone) was through Headphones, Got that HD2 replaced

3rd HD2 the GPS didn't Work, got that one replaced

4th HD2 kept randomly deleting All my contacts (Luckily I had them synced to multiple locations)

now I'm on my 5th HD2 waiting for Tmobile to get something worth upgrading to. Not going to get a Samsung, not going Tmo Motorola route, G2 is nice but I want a 4.3 - 4.5 inch screen, HD7 is just a HD2 with less buttons, 8mp camera and WP7 (which I'm not too fond of), I would get a Nexus but the screen is too small.

I'm waiting on that HTC Pyramid or the Optimus 3D (If Tmobile gets it - I know, Wishful thinking), When either of those comes out, I'll get one of them to hold me until a Meego device from either Nokia or Intel (Preferably Intel due to the fact that as of now, they are supporting it more) hits the shelves.

Congratulations, all winners!

N8's camera is (obviously) the big plus for me, which has more or less single-handedly kept me interested in Nokia for my next upgrade. So long as Nokia actually delivers on its promises as far as Sym^3 updates go, it will remain on the shortlist.

The only way Apple can even get on the list is if iTunes is not a requirement (without jailbreaking).

> In reply to [deleted post]yeah that's true that some N8's were faulty. Their motherboard was, and these phones were taken away by Nokia. Sad that you were unlucky. That is why it was out of stock in our place for a while. Thanks for the action Nokia. Not like the "just don't hold it that way" response.

They say that Altek Leo has the best camera on a phone but why does it hasnt come on a bigger market? If it has good specs, the market will sure love it. I saw pictures taken by Altek but the quality of N8's photos are far more great. Nokia N8 is just simply great.

I can't believe everyone is fighting over which is best, when the post is about a competition. *facepalm*
Anyway, those who are saying that the Altek is the best camera-phone in the world, i suggest you do some searching. There's been a huge amount of complaints about it, the optical lens keeps getting stuck, due to dust & grit getting inside of it. That sounds like a massive fail to me.

I step above all what is said in this website. good or bad.
My personal view after 3 months of use and still counting.
Of all the nokia phones i've ever used. this is the best experience i've had.
The phone is strong. portable. sleek.
As a phone it delivers and also responsive.
The camera is good.
If you would take a moment, glance through your life-style what suits you most. in terms of finance, need, class e.t.c. get what is best for you. at the end of the day you are the one spending the money.

I would recomend it to my best friend.

auto-focus, fixed-focus, ui e.t.c. i still take great shots for people, print them and am paid.

The Altek Leo is more like a camera than a phone. It's also laggy and can't power it's Android OS properly. They can't even get any network to sell it in the UK.

The N8 is a full feature smartphone.
