Love N8 but, 21 Oct 2010Hi, What do you think are the drawbacks of Sony Ericcson Vivez? It looks great, even gsmarena... moreSorry about the late reply. Dont get me wrong. The Vivaz is a great phone. The comparison between the 2 phones reveal differences. For example, the Vivaz runs an older os than the N8. The symbian ^3 is really good especially with future backups bound for all versions of this os. For this reason, your os will always be up to date. Now when it comes to the Vivaz, SE has backed out of symbian so they may just abandon any future updates to this phone. That would be a major concern for me. SE are also slow in rolling out updates to their os's. Take a look at the X10's. They getting updates now and to an old os version too! Their firmware was handled ok though but those were to fix problems and just minor new additions to the os. With the N8, the backing you'd get would be superb in comparison. Couple that to a larger screen, gorrila glass, anodised body, usb otg, 12mp camera vs 8mp, Hd gaming, flash lite 4.0, 16 gb on board memory and other minor tweeks provided with the new os, N8 symbian^3 would be the better choice.
Know what, i just came up with a brilliant idea how to make my geeky-tech needs fulfilled!
1) Get N8 for daily use as a phone, camera, music player, GPS navi, etc. (will install SPB mobile shell)
2) Get an Android Tablet for web browsing and reading books.
Just perfect, since i do find Android to be...thoughout intuitive UI, but battery life, jiish, no comments. Then again it is more acceptable for the tablet to die on you in a day!
BTW! I currently own E71 and am pretty happy with it, at least have been for past 2 years but now is the time for upgrade.
hey, all u techy guys how is it that most samsung phones giving class 10 edge and nokia gives class 32 edge even in the cheaper phones of nokia. does it really affects the speed. pls. help.
If we connect hdmi to tv inbuilt speaker in tv will work,how can we connect to tv with cable in the nokia n8 box.
[deleted post]Lot of updates ???? hmmm... Phone must be really shity then.. Needing a hell lot of updates.

They have spent money on their galaxy/wave/iphone and now they come here to convince themselves that they did not commit a mistake.......please be kind to them.......you must understand the pain they are going through now......they are looking for solace in other forums as the forums of galaxy/wave/iphone do not have these many hits.........so this is the best place for them to get attention.........
Okk Vijay, smile now........yeah........thats more like it.........
See guys he is so happy now!!

Dr. Bidhan, 28 Jul 2010Hi symbios wc to N8 forum...realy happy to see u here..im also planning to buy d N8 n waiting... moreOfcourse i want the Nokia N8!! :) My N86 flex cable just got damaged and the screen lights in many different colours but is still usable and my i8910 HD has served me well but the n8 is the ultimate upgrade for me! It has smoother, more crisp and detailed HD recording, the 12mp camera is a good upgrade from my 8mp devices, the xenon flash makes it possible for low light photos, and now nokia are taking the road of upgrading the current OS instead of making new releases.......if i wasnt certain i was getting an n8 before.....that statement just certified it!!!

It can survive a 10m fall. At worst you have to change the case which costs less than 3usd or about 2euros.
using this fone for 4 days Assam battery back up 3 days in general use never frizzes or hang like Nokia n97 good head phone sound quality camera is batter than my canon 8 mp camera good video quality smooth touch smooth scrolling a little slow on net speed but works good wih opera mini
i also have samsung galaxy s but i use it as a portable video player but not as a phone its quality and performance is good but this phone is not useable as its battery life is only 6 hour and camera is hassy and no flash
overall my personal openion is that it is batter than Samsung galaxy s for daily use
and by the way i don't really know how it support all my n 97 apps because it have a different OS but this apps not only runs but works good on it as well as themes so i don't really have a app problem as a lot of s60v3 apps are available in market.overall it is the best phone considering all espects.

More physical moving parts, more danger of breaking something. It's your choice...
Did I say I LOVE THE GPS PERFORMANCE on this thing? Yes, I did. Sorry, just so in love with it.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2010i mainly want 3g and wifi and camera and lots of mesaging..lots of mesaging...shud i go fr n8!... moreIf you really love messaging, I dont think N8 is a good choice as it does not have keypad....anyway its ur dicision.
