Better than 5800 in performance and few feature wise...requires a firmware update so it could get better... photo and video quality is best so far that i have experienced. Internet browser isn't that friendly.. but opera 10 can solve that problem. good built quality.. new screen is brighter than older Nokia phones...multi tasking and swype is good. audio is loud enough and gps facility is good..
snonre, 22 Nov 2010But seriously mate, hero of sparta looks fine on my unit, lags when there is too much combat though.N8 is more than capable to run the likes of that game,
thing is , this game has been ported, and not specifically coded for symbian^3.. and unlike all other platforms, n8 depends on its capable GPU, while others uses a 1ghz processors :S
when the game is coded properly , it works well, example n4s(and im sure there can be much more improvement there too)

i dont understand what you mean, its the same laggy performance in those videos and i already pasted that second, the whole game is laggy. That commercial the game is not laggy. And it's nothing to do with youtube :) i could understand your point if those real hands on videos was laggy too, so it could be about bad video frame, but tha'ts not the case.
here is by the way N8 user comment: "no it doesn't work like on video its very laggy.
You can see﻿ 2 vids on﻿ my profile about using N8. The second one is 100% gaming.
I love my N8 and games work on it very great but seriously.. Hero of Sparta is very laggy and its unplayable!
Asphalt 5 also doesn't work perfect but its playable :)
don't blame on my. I just tell the truth.."
hahahaha you r saying about the quality of hero of sparta 1??its only around 50 mb game..wave is playing hero of sparta 2 hd about 200 mb as smooth as i-phone..nova,sandstorm,gangster hd,zombie infection all r over 150 mb..:)
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2010Come up with something better guys. Something original. The more you criticize the N8, the bet... moreThis is a problem phone.Every store i go to,the staff is telling me "software problems".Got a rep of nokia too and he demostrated the N8 wen it died on him .Embarrasing for him as the staff saw that too.The older nokias were great phones.The new phones are super crap.Also very expensive.
BTW...I opt for the LG Optimus one.Fantastic phone.If you in the market for a great handset then check it out.Or any other 2.2 Andriod phone.Not Symbian (Nokia) promblems.

It's all down to the developers to optimize the game for a platform, especially if the game is not originally created for the platform, And knowing Gameloft, they are a bunch of lazy couch potatoes.
There is this game called One created for the N-gage 2.0 (non-hardware accelerated, mind you) platform by digital legends (the same developers that developed Kroll). It had a way better frame rate than Gameloft's brothers in arms which was also created for the n-gage 2.0 platform and brothers in arms had worse graphics!
Here is the vids about the game One:
Why are you trying so hard to bash this phone anyway?
[deleted post]GPS is always free, maybe you are asking about the GPS navigation. GPS navigation for Nokia is free for life. Putting the whole world map will consume a lot of space but the good thing in Nokia is you can choose only which country/s map you needed and put it in your phone thru OVI Suite and update from time to time. I had tried it here in UAE and even the very far Emirates and towns here, the streets are accurate.
Hero of sparta commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UA83iei5Yk
the reality: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjXRGzwIGnM and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVeFpnGFLhA
This is so wrong! that's a big false advertising, gameloft or nokia i dont know who did this same with asphalt 5 and avatar too. Games are ultra smooth on videos then reality was a big laggy and slow
jaidee, 22 Nov 2010I want to trade my iphone3gs for this best phone ever.Go for samsung Wave S8500...
please dont buy nokia N8 for next one month, buy only production dated feb 2011 or after
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2010"can n8 play nova,sandstorm hro of sparta 2 hd(approx 200 mb) games so smoothly like wave... moreWell it's only laggy when there is too much combat going on. Other than that is ok
