[deleted post]iam in between nokian8 and iphone4..... i will not use net much in my mobile... iam a good user of messaging, and multimedia in my mobile... also i will hear music.. which one do u suggest me and why?
Currently if we compare default browsers, the iPhones would probably win (unless you highly value Flash, I do, even if I have it disabled most of the time, but I want the option), but since this isn't important for you, we'll skip this.
What does messaging include? Email? SMS? How about social networks (facebook, twitter, etc?). As for social networks, theres some applications that lets you integrate social networks into the homescreen. Naturally they are small boxes ("widgets") so they are nice for quick checking of updates or a quick updating of your status, I'm not sure if the app itself also includes a bigger facebook "client", most likely such as seen here is included (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gz9Bb-g4ZtM) old video though, so it may be better. Also since the browser does support flash, the probability of using the whole service is very good.
Multimedia, N8 has flawless 720p playback (which is HD), supports divX and it's iterations by default. At the moment thought .sub and .srt (subtitles for divx movies i think) are not supported, most likely will see this in the future.
Music playback through speakers is decent, but the speaker is on the camera bulge which means you cant really listen to music unless you turn the devices touch screen against the table etc. Music playback through headphones naturally depends on headphones too, but the ones in the box give a very beefy Manowar tunes for me ;)
Since you arn't after anything that would obviously scream for either device, I'd rather suggest you going for the N8 for the shitloads of features and cheaper price. Both are good devices, but the iPhone will meet it's limitations alot faster, naturally again depending what all you do with it. I personally think the N8 looks alot better and I like the aluminium alot better than the glass of the iPhone, alot less likely to crack when dropped too, although the glass is hard, but it's no diamond.
One thing I love about the N8 is that the screen is AMOLED. iPhone can't have a clock as it's screensaver cos it's LED backlit. So the screen has to be completely off when idle to avoid sucking the battery dry. It's a very little thing if I read it like that, but for me my cellphone is my only clock in life when I'm not at my computer, so being able to check the time without unlocking the phone is very important for me :)
this phone is coming to the philippines the first week of november.

Sagar, 03 Oct 2010what do u mean by coverflow?(sorry iam not that aware of the technical aspects)
Thank you :)Coverflow is the name used by Apple (Not by Nokia) for the music gallery browsing effects. Meaning you have like the album covers visible there and then you scroll them sideways and they move all nice and cool.
Search youtube for "coverflow" and I'm sure you find out what it means.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2010multitouch and coverflow but they are copied directly fr iphoneYou are correct and Nokia admits this all the way. However, you don't even wanna start discussing what all has apple taking straight from Nokia.
Apple, amongst all other manufacturers, have always been free riding on Nokias research and development.

sukrsa, 03 Oct 2010To Wheez,
What I understood that USB OTG will connect those entire device they do not require... moreI basically wouldn't count on anything requiring drivers to work. It maybe be able to work around it with some devices, but I really wouldn't count on that.
Oh, normal USB mouse (that doesnt require driver) works, this is friggign epic lol :D Also that probably means normal USB keyboards work as well :)
the most intresting ting that i love it in this phone is 3D games like the iphone ,no more then the iphone , and now we have a multitasking game smartphone.
[deleted post]I really wish this thread has sticky posts. So that i wouldn't go over pages searching your important thoughts about n8 :)
Thanks for always keeping us updated, and answering our questions.
I don't have any questions btw atm. Since i'm already 99.9% inclined on choosing n8 over others on my list. Just waiting for gsmarena's review and dropping here occassionally to see questions being asked then answered. I don't also talk that much now since i think if there is someone who can justify n8 better it should be a real user like you. And you're really doing a great job. Don't let haters lose your cool like me sometimes. =D (although i really don't think you ever did)
Have a good day/night! Keep it up sir.
You can use google to translate finnish webpage to your language to know the buyers opinion.
What I understood that USB OTG will connect those entire device they do not require driver installation. While we connect any Flash drive/Pen drive/Hard disc drive to PC first time, PC always install drive for those device.
So, in this situation how those drive will work to N8 without installing driver? Is it like that, those drivers are preinstalled in N8 or what? Any idea?
