> In reply to [deleted post]Just wait and Symbian Belle is almost out. It will make S^3 just like Android. Nokia revamped the notification system and it's now very innovative and useful. People will be flocking back to Nokia. Belle will make the UI smoother than sgs 2 and it will be like better than a dual core Android.

continuous focus on automatic mode is not working... fixed close up mode is working. nice but a little immature UI...

I think we like our Nokia's, warts and all, because they last the full length of a 2 year contract, and they're reliable.

android is a fragmented POS that lags even with a dual core processor. Phones using the OS rarely (if ever) receive updates beyond 12 months, making them obsolete even before your average 18-24 month contract expires.

that is true.. i have an n8 and i say it will probably be my last nokia phone because of nokia's poor customer orientation... doesn't listen to customers want. they are only making what they want to do... n8 is a great camera phone... i cant argue with that. speed is good also.. not as fast as android but it works just fine... UI however is quite outdated. lack of intuitive UI thats all... catch up nokia please... :) make legends like n95

Bella on the N8 is better than most Android Gingerbread phones. Once the bugs are worked out, it'll be excellent.

I still prefer iOS though. The best performing mobile OS out there.

Hi, that would be nice upgrade alongwith Symbian Anna. But as I have updated to Symbian Anna there is a problem of battery drainage. Is this happening the same with anyone?

Well this is something GREAT from Nokia.

They still giving support to their product! And that's something amazing from any manufacturer.

Some of us with other phones need to wait months for a simple update, Nokia launches fixes and updates very frecuent.

Good news for N8 Useres!!! Cheers Nokia!!!

A Samsung will not last that long, not in hot tropical 27 to 32 Celcius, all year long. Heck, even my Samsung tv, desktop monitor couldnt last 3 years, in a sheltered condition, much less a phone that has to be exposed to the elements

There were no other OTA updates except for APP updates.

Due to a configuration mistake, the current package is set to record videos at 25 FPS, not at 30 FPS. We are really sorry about this mistake and are working hard to address it. We will update the package very soon with the 30fps functionality enabled, please stay tuned for the update.
