I read this forum everyday and I'm amazed of the posts and comments that I read. Your unhappy folks out there, don't blame the N8, blame yourselves for the high expectations. It's only a phone. Be happy. I'm happy. Even without Ovi store cause I did the 3 button hard reset. But that's my fault. Anyway, I tried out the HDMI port and it works just awesome. I went from N95 to N97 to N900 and now N8. I believe Nokia takes care of their customers, there has been firmwares for all these phone I had and made them alot user friendly. I can wait for the firmware for this N8, then I'll get back my Ovi store.
This is my dream phone at the moment... I don't care if the UI is not that flashy as iOS or android. Symbian remains to be the most-userfriendly UI for me.And n8's build quality? I think it's the best one so far.It's an important factor for a smartphone to be sturdy.It's a fact that we are still in recession and people mostly change their phones after a year or so. Ergo, we need a smartphone that could withstand accidental drops and the likes. great job Nokia!

Anonymous, 14 Nov 2010About os, it is personal taste. Symbian is not slow and doesn't need very fast CPU. Fast CPU m... moreIn honesty I feel Symbian has been neglected. it was YEARS AHEAD of its day, and a milestone for allowing open source apps to be written, a bit like directx. But, the interface is just too fidly. The kernel is there, still as efficient as ever, but just one example of symbian^3 trying to mark file to delete in file manager (that STILL is located in office,odd!) you can now long press screen to bring up MARK, but have to repeat on each file. Even on a basic Samsung you can add a tick by each item, so much easier eh? You wish you can move you widgets around manually on the wallpaper, and only three panels still, why? And they offer you the option to delete if 'too many', is that a joke they incorporated? I have a t-mobile pulse mini, it has fifteen panels! Do an update Symbian, please! I expect an ota update to my N8 that brings it upto 2010 specs, do I still have to buy a certain SPB app to make my phone look as it should?
i need 2 or 3 battery a day if im using it all day long
i need to charge it or swap battery on all my nokia 2 or 3 times a day . So if this phone has no battery ill just may think of a.ternative on the go charging
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2010hi its better to buy samsung s8500 wave, interface like android, good hardware, good device, g... moreNot sure I agree, do you own both?
The wave has a FANTASTIC screen, similar to Galaxy S. But Bada is somewhat limited for apps at the moment. One thing I dio find is the need to reset my widgets when the wave 'runs out of memory', odd fault that.You end up with no screen shortcuts. The N8 may look a little outdated through its interface, but in the last few days I have begun to appreciate what a great piece of kit this phone is. Having used a usb keyboard and mouse while plugged in to an HDMI monitor, it is a mini computer in your pocket. In the car I listen to my music collection using car radio fed by the N8 FM Transmitter. At home I have plugged in a USB hard drive via the USBOTG interface and streamed HD video through the N8 to the large screen. The HD Video is almost unbeatable. Symbian is well looking outdated, rumour has it they have just had a massive cash injection to stop them going bust, that's maybe the problem with N8, SYMBIAN!
so many people saying they having problem with nokia n8. it turn by it self, freeze,slow. so many problems, i think that was nokia n8 hater. because my cousin have nokia n8 phone its amazing. don't listen to nokia n8 hater. listen to ur heart.
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2010i love the n 8 but nokia needs to fix symbain 3 its so slow and bugy and why no video light it... morePC is fast and CPU on PC is very fast.

Alex, 14 Nov 2010Hi all, I've got an i8910 with orange and due an upgrade, Don't know whether to go fot the N8 ... moreCamera and connectivity are the strongest points for N8. If they are your top reasons for a smart phone purchase, you should go with N8 for sure. No regret, I am very sure.
