You know what they say - Jealously makes you nasty!! Enjoy your Iphone and let the others enjoy the N8.. Taste differs you know.
Nuwan, 13 Dec 2010Dear all friends..,
Since I've given my personal idea regarding my personal experience with... moreFirst, let me clarify a few things. Higher pixel density doesn't mean better image quality. It's true that the images are much sharp on a higher resolution screen. But on AMOLED display it's much less noticeable (unless it's pentile matrix like Galaxy S). I honestly can't see any individual pixel when held at 30 cm from my eyes, and I don't think anyone can. You will see the difference if pitched against ip4, but that doesn't hinder real-life performance.
Regarding 5530 sounding better than N8, I must say it's total BS. Look at the freq. response graphs, check the audio quality review at mobile-review; it's proven that N8 is the best sounding mobile device. Perhaps you should try genuine audiophile tracks e.g. Killing in the name by Rage Against the Machine.
NFS, 13 Dec 2010 Yes. You are right.
Nokia might delay the launch of Meego OS.
That is why they... moreIt is almost impossible to make a phone that is loved by all, but it is certainly possible to make a phone that is loved by most of them and Nokia does it time and again.
Iphone is the best...luv u apple....n8 doesnt even stand near it...n8 is too laggy and slow and there are no apps available for it.........n8 is just waste money...dis fon is not worth it...iphone is the best fon ever built...;)

feel sorry for you use only use it about half hour experienced..for you information i have and bought n8,c7 and c6-01...and now waiting for e7..you can check my post on c6-01 forum about those phone.with symbian^3 it totally magnificient compare to s60v3/v5...about music on n8...the default music you play is wma format...try play mp3 125kbs format..you will amaze..and you have gut to write review even you just play it around-taking other experience- for a while and never experience like we all do who have the phone...i know you love symbian..but sorry to say..you experienced with it is invalid..
the most annoying thing about this phone is when you send messages or typing, you will accidentally press the option button or the symbols options.
this is hanging at all my time and not expected as we like before

That is why they have introduced Symbian*3.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2010i really think you need to spend more time with the n8 to judge. the CONS that you mentioned a... moreDear all friends..,
Since I've given my personal idea regarding my personal experience with N8, I have been criticized that I had underestimated the phone... May be it's true because I only had about 45 minutes to play with it... So it's not at all to judge anything...
Let me tell you these...
I'm NOT a newbie to Symbian world... I have used several symbian phones (all are Nokias) and I have played with it up to the extremes... (For an example, my current mobile was hacked first.. Now I'm using a custom firmware with lots of ROMpatcher patches and Modds... If I were a Nokia newbie or Symbian newbie I will not be able to do those kind of stuff...)
Anyway, Nokia N8 is officially hacked now so there that is a positive news...!
However let me tell you certain things...
## First I did not want to compare Nokia N8 with Nokia 5530... (Both have their own specialties..) For an example I said "5530 resolution is better than N8.." when I said it, I didn't mean just the resolution... because any baby knows that both phones have the same resolution... (640 x 360 If remember correct..) But I didn't mean that.. I meant the density of the pixels... (5530 has 640 x 360 in just 2.9 inch display while N8 has the same in 3.5 big screen...) Do you get what I'm saying now...? (Still 5530 is the highest pixel density phone Nokia has made so far... and it's pretty noticeable... Just put both phones nearby and see by yourself... I did so...)
Nokia 5530 screen SUCKS when it comes to sun light legibility... In that apartment, N8 wins by miles due to its great AMOLED screen...!
(Very funny... Someone has tried to compare Capacitive and Resistive touch screen by its look...! Being capacitive or resistive has NOTHING to do with screen resolution or colors..! Some guys are using great phones like N8 but don't even know these simple stuff...!)
## When it comes to Music also, 5530 is way better than N8... (I repeat... 5530 Xpress music performed way better than N8...) But remember... I did not mean loudspeaker sound quality... I meant the sound out put from headsets... (I checked using same song and same headset jut to be reasonable...) However I have to agree even though N8 has mono loudspeakers, it's louder than stereo speakers of 5530...
I'm not a guy who hates N8 just like other Samsung or Apple fan boys... but I just said, Nokia would have done in the software department much better than this... (Plus introducing higher resolution display with Nokia clear black option like in C6-01)
I couldn't understand why Nokia introduced symbian*3 when Meego is going to be their flagship device-os in the near future.
Thus it means that arrival of symbian*3 is a clear indication that Meego is not going to be announced in 2011 ???...
akhilesh, 12 Dec 2010no no nokia n8 its useless and comparatively very poor performance than samsung's pixon and g... moreyou can't compare pixon with N8. pixon is just a digital camera and nothing more. it even doesn't have an OS and it's really terrible for a cell phone now. and about the galaxy: it even doesn't have a LED flash. poor speaker performance. and N8 has usb OTG(on-the-go) that this ability makes this smart phone to a laptop. so don't bother...
First time nokia bring out a stylish mobile. can anyone tell me that how's the music and pic quality of n8? Please comment...........

At least for me, the only one of those points that is of any importance to me is Ovi Maps. I used it extensively on my vacation when I had an N97. The lane indicator is the best feature when navigating through unfamiliar streets and highways.
As for the browser fix. I'm aware it is coming in February. I just did not want to wait that long. It is unfortunate that what I'm looking for is months away.
[deleted post]and your here just to say that?. or you just dont have the money to buy and bash this phone till the end?
N8 is an excellent performer in all respect i.e. Built quality, shape, camera, display and multimedia. Only a little flaw left there, my friends new N8 get damaged by accumulating moisture and dust within 25 days of purchase. This cause total damage of board. Nokia care will take 1 month to replace the board. Though this is a rare incident, I would like to request all N8 owner please be careful about this exposed micro USB port and clean the port with soft cotton swab or fine brush occasionally. I use a sticky tape to cover the port when not in use. Thanks
