Well i have worked for mobile companies for 25 years and i find n8 a really bad and cheap phone compared to samsung wave, samsung galaxy S , iphone , HTC desire and other competing phones so my advise never buy the n8 go for wave or galaxy S or HTC desire
after tired of lag and worst OS symbian 3 I sold my N8. and baught HTC desire and seriously this is best phone because of there OS Android. Best Android OS.
i don't know if any of u guy got this problem like me but my nokia n8 won't turn on after it freeze. First there is a problem which i can't go to menu, when i push the menu button, it said ''system error''. i did not install anything yet and this happened. then i send to nokia care and when i got it back,it was fine.the next day, i check the phone, it already dead. i tried to turn it on but nothing happened, even though i tried charging it.anyone can help me, i like this phone and its features but how can i enjoy it if it keep freezing and restarting itself and now it is dead.THIS is very disappointing for me, i have such high hope for this one.
[deleted post]If you are an experienced Anroid user, do you know why android gets corrupted or hangs to retarts so easily if incompatible software are installed to an android phone? I would like also to hear why there are those bucket loads of troubles in android phones.

But here it is, a found the site... moreOh please dude!
Thats a "CONCEPT" phone
Whereas the X12 aka Anzu is a real phone :)
OH and N8 fanboys dont start flaming me, I never said anything bad against N8 :D
Infact I lyk the phone :)
I was just answering to this person.

I admit that android is a great os, but there are somethings that symbian can do better than android, for example in the multimedia region. Symbian supports more multimedia formats natively than android.
[deleted post]So Mr. Droid loyal to Android? I am not loyal to symbian and I have not bought any shares in Nokia.
I appreciate the "efforts of openness" symbian and android bring to the table. These 2 mobile OS are open to developers/users across different range of hardware while smartphone features are not being sacrificed but added and improved.
I like WP7 for the UI effort but feel it should not have ditched it's openness from WM6.5. Looking forward to QNX(new blackberry OS) and what the new Palm OS will bring to the market. Meego should be of different segment cause it's going to be more of a desktop OS than a smartphone OS.

Also there are plaenty of issues which are just plain down to the O/S. Admit it, it'd be a better phone running Android :)

I know of no one with N8 having serious issues (around 5 users) but in many forums it's being attacked. It's a wait and see as of now if these reports are true.
Whatever... I am glad this phone is useful for me and pleased that the unlocked phone price is reasonable.
its a big phone , its does not go on to your pants pocket if you are on your car sitting

i have nokia n8 and symbain 3 is slow and its hangs alot i have not installed anything in it hd video recording and no video light one thing i can say it is nicely built and it is strong
[deleted post]Why is it predjudice? I work with these handsets on a daily basis, I think it would give me suitable grounds to pass on my opinion. These have been, without a doubt a very troublesome handset and it is mainly due to the software. Sorry but Nokia just can't seem to get this right. Admittely the hardware on paper is very good and competeive but if these were to run Android they would be a much better all round phone.
MrDroid, 11 Nov 2010I work as a technical advisor, we have trouble with these by the bucket load, you must be one ... moreReally and i also heard if the N8 is made in Finland you probably are lucky and if it is made in China you will encounter issues.
Is this true or is it just a made up rumor?
Mine is made in Finland.

Why are some people flaming the N8?
Probably they don't own 1.
I bought and it and i just love it no problems (yet) nog lag and it works fine.
Why people say it is outdated?
The hardware is enough for Symbian because it is a light OS.
The reaction is fast and multitouch is smooth and sensitive.
So people try it first before you start flaming and hating. it says more about you guys.
