If you like a fancy phone with lots of 'cool' apps, a very easy to use and very popular aty the moment, you better choose for an iphone or android.
In my opinoin N8 is more for people who more care about cool hardware features/good camera, and with an os that may need few more clicks to reach something but contains lot more 'cool' features.
I jus want to know if Nokia-N8 is the best smart phone available now.how is android compared to symbian os.

wana, 21 Oct 2010if ur using blackberry... then wait for the next nokia release.. E7 will be available soon.. e7 is i guess too costly, so please tell whether n8 has a good email app as seen in the recent e series phones like e72. I'd love to have that messenger, it does good job, so users please compare ur email client with e72, is it same or performs similar? Please reply.
Can anyone give me some battery times they have experienced? + the heaviness you have used it.
Cause with my current symbian (N85) I can easily make 3/4 days with light usage (without all kind of crap and widgets running/updating in background).
I don't take a data plan, I rarely use the browser (wifi) and lets say very light phone/sms/multimedia usage, how many days will the batery last in this case?
in reply to Tanvir Hasan Nokia will start a pre order from 25 october and product will be available at Bashundhara city Nokia Store from 11 November

Andy Burgin, 21 Oct 2010The Designers have done a good job with the metal body on the N8,itdoes not feel to heavy in y... moreDear Andy,
You wrote: "The Designers have done a good job with the metal body on the N8,itdoes not feel to heavy in your hands at All,Why?no battery cover seems odd to alot of people,as there is enough space below the camera shutter to put a battery cover there,as loads like to buy spare batteries for there mobiles,so if travelling an no electric plug for your charger you have some power with you,Nokia mobiles have very good speakers on them,but my only real bad mistake by the designers is the Speakers on the N8,you like to place your mobile next to you on a flat surface so it will not fall off,but with the N8 the speaker does not give clear sound an sounds right low an dim,so get the full sound from the N8 you have to place your mobile with the lcd screen on the flat surface to get Full sound,an could easily scratch the lcd screen,why could the speakers placed at the bottom near the Charger port"
1st of all, you don't need to keep an extra battery for N8. Because, you can charge it with the regular Nokia charger (which is found almost anywhere), then, you can also charge it from a USB connector (Micro USB) from a PC or Laptop. And, if you wish (and have access to), you can charge it with the special Micro USB chargers (which comes with Nokia N85, N79, N86, N97 & N97mini).
2nd, if you look closely at the back of Nokia N8, you'll see that there is an elevated portion (where the camera, xenon flash & speaker are), if you keep your mobile facing up, it's elevation will cause its speaker to be raised from the surface (unless you keep it on your bed, where the elevation won't happen cause of the soft mattress). So hearing a ring or reminder alarm or a song is not a problem in N8 even if you keep it on the table or hard surface. If you keep the phone on softer surface where the elevation will not be able to help, you can just put it facing down.
3rd, go to youtube & search "N8 Gorilla Glass" (I don't remember the actual address, I saw it yesterday), You'll see that the touchscreen of N8 is scratch proof. You can't even scratch it with a swiss knife or keys & coins or even with a regular kitchen knife. For that matter, one of my friend have bought an N8 from abroad & yesterday I enquired about the Gorilla Glass, and he confirmed me that the glass is really good and (almost) non-scratchable. If you try really hard, you are bound to make a scratch on the surface, but generally, you'll not be able to scratch it with regular use.
BTW, I am waiting for my N8. After I have the machine in my hand, I'll let everyone know my personal review.
