before ios and android, nokia is in the top of the world, now...nokia is best for good phones not smart phones...N8 is not a smart phone when compared to high end android and ios phone...these phones makes n8 UI antique...lets face it, if you show your n8 to people and at the same time another will show iphone 3gs/4/4s, then another will show galaxy s2, experia arc other new android phones they will snub your n8 as if it exist 2 decades ago

> In reply to Nokia Rules @ 2011-11-03 17:23 from kJX3 - click to readYou are obviously the only blessed person to have ever bought an n8. Lets face it your p**sing in the wind. Your trying to get into a debate that doesnt involve an n8 as its nowhere near the sgs2 or iphone. my battery life was great on my 3310 as it did nothing apart from call and text pretty much the same as an n8. What do you do for a living? Advertise for nokia in pointless places? Im talking from experience in the mobile retail environment so i know what im talking about. you have no clue as to what you are going on about. End of discussion. Please go home and think about what you have said today and decide whether you have made the right choice in your life. You're welcome in advance for the advice ;-)

> In reply to Nokia Rules @ 2011-11-03 17:05 from kJX3 - click to readDo you work in the mobile industry? I do. I have seen more n8's returned than other smartphone. Poor battery life, system crashes and just generally awful. the last decent phone they brought out was the 1800 kid. I wish nokia all the best with the lumia as they need to do something massive to turn around their percentage of the samrtphone market. But please dont compare the n8 to the sgs2 or the iphone, i would say its not even in the same league but in all honesty its in a completely different sport! Come back when you have a phone that was sold for the feature of a 12mp camera. Maybe try taking your sim card out and have it as a digital camera, would be of better use

> In reply to [deleted post]I dont have a Samsung Galaxy S2 anymore, I got rid of it after a couple of days. Why would I lie about having it? Its cheaper than an iPhone and if I can afford an iPhone 4S, surely getting a Galaxy S2 is therefore much more possible. Anyway, I found the phone to have glitches.

Its normally people who bash the iPhone are the ones who want one but just cannot get one as its too expensive :)

It's these fandroids who are living a dream and thinks that having some good specs means it's a better phone even though the OS cannot fully utilize the advanced specs. That's how Android is. It has a lot of bells and whistles but the OS can't exploit it and it's malware ridden.

WP is better than Android.
