Got it for my wife ... felt really good. Build quality is very good, user interface is also good. Camera is really the best thing in it. But the only thing I don't like is the responsiveness. When I compare it with my Galaxy S, Nokia needs to cover a lot of ground. They need to improve their OS.
But anyways, it is good over all, but I would still prefer a Galaxy S. Good for ladies though.
[deleted post]sorry to say, but you should try out yourself then only say what you are talking. I dont want to do arguements among N8 and iphone which mobile is better, nokia and apple are great companies but still anybody can do mistake or can lack at any place and can have extra edge that's what called competition. It is in our benefit, please stop taking side of any company talk fair and factly. Personally i like iphone graphics and speed. Still will not like waste that much money just for brand name and no features. Same case with blackberry.
You think about it before purchasing iphone what you want? or what you are getting? if think it is fashinable or showing off thing having iphone then you should. But if you are looking at feature side i think at that price .....
It is so strange that iphone users never saw any other brand phone i think, at one community one iphone user was arguing that the video call (apple named it facetime) is first time launched on mobile phones (in iphone4). But fact is since many years other companies launhced mobile with front camera through network support you can video call but the iphone added (its new technology for them) it to use on wifi ONLY, not on network (strange). There are many apps (more in beta) for video calls through wifi for other OS. So how come its new.
I think apple should add following things, and iphone users should ask for b/c they are paying too much extra -
1. video calling through network (i seeing it in nokia since n70)
2. full functional bluetooth file transfer feature
3. FM receiver
4. FM transmitter
5. Flash support
6. True multitasking for all apps (dont believe check out reviews)
7. make it independent of itune
8. microSD card support
9. File transfer over USB (its new in mobile as launched in nokia first time on N8)
if they will add atleast above mentioned features i think iphone will become best phone untill then it is a showing off toy for me.

We all now have the N8 and you know well that what you are saying are all false. We love what we have and none, absolutely none of what you said even are remotely close to the truth. Go fly a kite.
The 12 mpx camera on the N8 sticks out too much and should have been 8 mpx so it was flush with the body. The aluminum part of the casing is only on the middle of the phone and the end caps are plastic. The main button on the front is all the way on the left and is not centered like every other Nokia model for no apparent reason causing a lefty/righty bias. The microphone is all the way on the far right and not centered, again causing a lefty/righty bias. The battery is designed to be non-user servicable. The outdated CPU slows to a crawl during multitasking and frequently locks up. This phone needs to go back to the drawing board immediately. Nokia dropped the ball on this one.

I have already pre-booked (Bangalore) and will be getting it in another 2-3 days.

Only thing i'm hesitating to buy N8 is i'm afraid it might hang a bit as all the N series does.. :( I'm satisfied with the features of N8 but at the sametime I9000 is also equally good apart from the camera..

If u want even more faster browser then u should try ucbrowser (symbian), with awesum download manager... Lastly, i hate downloading files using o mini.

[deleted post]guys, yesterday i check out N8 Demo peice at NPD, its awesome. In hand it feel so good, its great... i cant explain feelings... i tried it around for more than 45 min approx 1 hr. most aspects of it, camera, games, videos, msging, browser, sound etc etc or yeah USB feature too...
look & feel is great, yeah as symbian look is same as on last smartphones so who already own one like me they will not be surprised by the feel of OS. But the speed is very very good. Means really, whatever youtube videos or any expert said, i cant understand why; but i didnt find a single time slow down or processing wait. it was quick response. And it was loaded with quite enough apps for demo. But may be after loading too many performance will vary.
I played two games, NFS, angry birds lite. all worked well. graphics was very good, speed and response was also quick.
Camera output quality is good in auto, but if you just try some setting for particular place as this is the matter with every camera & digicam, then quality and clarity is great. also while shooting use autofocus feature, it will sharp it if the object is so near.
watching videos is great experience, the sharpness and quality is damn good. If your movie files quality is high, everybody gonna love watching. it also support divx, i played divx file my self after transferring from my PEN drive.
browser opened all webpages nicely, i used NPD wifi while trying it. But as it is mobile browser & if a site have mobile version website then it will open first. But still i will prefer opera or unless i need to open some flash supported websites. I am will also try BOLT browser on N8, if it will support.
sound output is loud and ok from single speaker, but sound output from headphone rocks!! who love music they should try it out.
usb feature is amazing, in mobile its first mobile having this feature, as already told i transferred my divx (ext-.avi, size-869 mb) file through pen drive. it worked properly.
one more info which i got. in N8 you cant pull out battery urself, but why we want to b/c two things mainly - first if phone will hang or something, second if want to make your no. out of reach. so first of all hanging chances are very less, but in any case if want to just cut the power of phone then you need to press power button for 7 secs (just like we do in laptop/pc).
Overall its great, size if good for pocket also, anybody who have interest they should try it themselves once at Nokia Shops. Dont try it from other shops b/c they will try to convert you to take other brands because of commission is high in other brands. After trying at NPD, you can purchase form anywhere.
Why we are sure this phone n8 will sell very well

Ali RAza, 11 Oct 2010Hi
In Dubai all the N8 phones are Made by nokia...manufacture in china....
Is there any d... moreHi,
I got my N8 from Axiom (Abu Dhabi) 2 days ago and it says made in Finland, I have a friend here in the office who got his N8 from Emirates Computers and it says Made in China. I think not all of the units in UAE are from the same source.
As far as I have noticed, there is no difference between the ones made in Finland, China or by Nokia (I think the ones made by Nokia are coming from somewhere in Europe other than Finland).
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2010Galaxy S definately.There you go !! Confusing my mind again.. :(
Cool, 11 Oct 2010Hi Hakeem..
I think it will be good to ask u a question since u r using the Finland make and ... moreThat's being used in my country to some people who believe that finland made differs in quality with china made. They charge higher prices on finland made phones. They are using people's paranoia to gain more profit. That's sad. Probably it originates on the fact that there are really nokia replicas coming from china. Hence, getting that reputation that everything that comes from china are low in quality or fake.
In my opinion, that kind of impression should be erased since it sounds like discrimination.
