[deleted post]I'm not sure what exactly you have seen, but I'm sure it has nothing to do with the X6. You might need to pay another visit and make sure that you are actually trying the N8. X6 uses the old Symbian navigation style (1 click for select and another click for confirm), the N8 is confirmed to have normal style click (1 click for select and confirm) except in some areas where it does require a double click to avoid mistakes.
Also, there is no comparison when it comes to the home screen, the only similaritiy is the "look" of the icons.
I have both units (the N8 received yesterday and iPhone 4 for more than a month), not getting into the useless comparison between both of them because as an ACTUAL user for both units, each one of them has it's own unique good things as well as bad things (and that includes the so called super iPhone too, the negative things for me are facts that can not be changed at all). Not to be understood in a wrong way, I emphasize here that there is no comparison between the 2 units according to my real usuage for both. I love each one of them on it's own way, and getting the N8 will NOT make me give up the iPhone, and it goes both ways, the iPhone does have weak points that made me go and try other brands, otherwise there was no need at all to look for another device.
Last be not least, the price difference between both of them is not that negligable, iPhone 4-16 GB is AED 2,449 ($662) and N8 is AED 2,099 ($567), so there is about $100 more to pay for the iPhone.
[deleted post]Hi, 'anonymous'. Heard its around the 15th Oct for general sales, earlier for preorders. Apparently the Infocomm Development Authority has to inspect the N8 as Symbian^3 is a new platform or something. Cheers!
[deleted post]you must dreaming , where i live the Iphone 4 cost twice the price of N8 , both Unlocked phones
IPhone 4 = $1000 and i prebook the N8 for $490, so the N8 is half the price. i think there is no comparison in the price.
[deleted post]Dear ice are you serious?Maybe Nokia n8 is not so fast and responsive like iphone but it costs about 450€ while iphone costs 450€ with 2year contract which means about 850-900€ for two years,or if you buy it without contract 750-800€.You buy 2 n8 instead of an iphone.
Where's the review?! It's monday already. Well here on south east asia that is.
[deleted post]I hate restrictions. So most likely, i will not be impressed. Ui and smoothness aside.
Engineer Man, 10 Oct 2010Wheez. Have got your N8? I'm sure it was you who trialed the phone & gave us your thoughts... moreIf you want copy/paste feature, it's sad to say that if it's the same browser as found on old nokias, you're only option would be to have an opera mini or opera mobile. They are good browsers. And they render pages efficiently. A 2mb page in default browser is loaded below 500kb on opera mini. No flash in mini though.
No need to fight over these phones unless you own a stake in these companies. Iphone and N8 are both great phones. I am buying both. N8 for me and Iphone 4 for my wife because they are both great phones PERIOD!
Wheez, 10 Oct 2010Havn't trialed any prototypes apart from a demo model that was available in the finnish flagsh... moreHow i wish there's a shortcut for that, as in keypad phones you press the number 5 to switch windows.
That's where my need for a qwerty coming from.
S.K., 11 Oct 2010I beta tested this phone out for a week(In Canada), the phone is great a real step up from pas... morebro respect ur emotions... Iphone is untouchable in area of touch sensitivity and style since the first i phone, but in the world of multitasking and flash web, how can anyone survive without it? I gifted an i phone to my gf as u know she's not gonna be needing those kinda workaholic features... Ios is enjoyable and fun, but not good for a real smartphone, android and symbian are the ones...
Every device has its pros and cons...
And if u were looking in Ovi store for app, it was the wrong place to find, try sites like mobile9..
They have tons of symbian app, which ios can't even dream of...
Gaming is surely better in iphone, they but ur a gyro sensor for that only, but symbian isn't bad either...
So choose wad u like, but u are saying somewhere around 15k (INR) for i4 compared to n8...
I beta tested this phone out for a week(In Canada), the phone is great a real step up from past Nokia phones but its touch interface isn't as smooth as the iphone 4. The camera is amazing, the hdmi port works flawlessly when hooked up to a tv and it has a ton of features (power saving mode which i found quite useful as the battery drains out quick and I LOVED the built in FM Transmitter). Ovi store sucks hard so I couldn't really do much in terms of apps. A couple of things that were annoying: a) The protruding camera/loudspeaker; it seems like this could easily get damaged as it also took away from its looks and b) The SMS messaging!!!! my god every time you send a text message you have to click on a Check-mark THEN click send, that added step to send a simple text was reallllllly annoying. For those looking for a really feature packed camera phone this phone is great but personally I would choose the iphone 4 over this phone simply because the ip4 has a much smoother touch screen interface, it never lags, and it's app store is untouchable. Nokia is headed in the right direction and if they ever perfect their OS on these type of phones then I have no doubt that they can easily reclaim their rightful throne.
Any one got this type Nokia N8 BOX
In all videos have only BLUE box. So i ask this question.
nokia we need live moving backgrounds faster os more screen resulution video light plus xenon flash and thinner phones
prince78, 09 Oct 2010Dear Wheez can u tell me whether N8 can play .mkv videos.. yes the nokia n8 does play mkv files, just watch that video:
HAve my hand on the model sample, not a real one, the screen size is the same as n900 , itis the first time we see symbianphone on this screen size, it is large enough , perfect size, very thin as well. I Dont need to buy ponintandshoot camera anymore , gps device, even the ipood touch for gaming, ovi store gaming os growing , o can wait for the games
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2010Each OS has its own advantages and disadvantages. How about you try running 74 apps on the ... moreYes i agree with you as far as the os specs but Nokia is not as stable as the iphone in terms of world wide sales and are always in demand Nokia fades away very fast
