Why do you have to compare it with android apple or anything else.....
To be frank Nokia have lost somewhere... but are getting back slowly NOW!! Look at the N8, it has to offer a 3.5" Amoled, Capacitive touch screen better than ANY NOKIA .. symbian 3 (missed symbian after using n900.. n900 was a complete phone though :P, needed a 12mp NOKIA) USB OTG and a NOKIA OVI MAPS for free... i dont want to talk about the HDMI cuz it dosn matter to me..
i want this phone for my self.. when compared to others Nokia N8 is on par by one thing or the other. that could be the camera or the USB OTG or the body.. what matter is that what i am satisfied with... if you have never used an android or iphone it wont matter to you..cuz being a nokia fan i have never bought a phone other than nokia.. it has never let me down.. i maybe a frog in the well who hasn seen other capabilites but guess what i am the king of that well ;).. i have used the nokia Ngage-QD , N82(gosh what a phone :D) 5800 XM and the N900(abandoned beauty)... well each one had its own quality.. n8 has em all and much better(well n900 had a diff os that beat symbian.. people who used n900 know what i am talking about.. but Maemo is still a baby compared to symbain and people who have used both will understand).. what more do IIIIII need?

One thing you say is true; you are NOT versed with Android.
Please know what you're actually talking about before making derogatory comments. Talk is cheap.
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010homescreen moves so slowly n sluggishly n reacts after a delay....not goodFor me its completely smooth animation. The "delay" is intentional and its due to the fact that they didnt wanted it to follow the finger realtime like in photogallery for example. It waits for the full swipe command till it changes. Everybody may not like the design, but cos some homescreen widgets use realtime sode swiping, it may be better this way.
If u dont like the swipe "delay", tap the homescreen change button (3 dots) and its instant

Please, the hardware of sony ericsson phones are pathetic. They don't last long. And as far as iphone goes, it's price is out of this world. Even if it is marginally better than the n8 not worth spending that much amount of money

to summarise n8 gives u maximum features in one device at a competitve price may be with less eye candyness and smoothness compared to iphone 4 and android phones. if any one wants to buy iphone 4 he has to be prepared to shell out lot of money 1st to buy the phone then to buy the apps and be prepared to do it all thru its app store. the actual competitors in features for n8 are android phones with better eyecandyness n smoother interface but still missing few things like free navigation, hdmi out, usb on the go. So budget conscious ppl will be deciding bet n8 and htc desire hd and iphone 4 will be out of qn.
AJay, 02 Oct 2010Well that was the main attraction. How about symbian 3? Does it hang a lot?its ok but as compared to my brothers android xperia x10, my n8 software is not that special n i used it less to confirm any hang problems or not
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010only thing good about this phone is the camera Well that was the main attraction. How about symbian 3? Does it hang a lot?
Looks like us in India have to wait till october 13th. What's the verdict guys. Does the phone live up to the hype?
Wheez, 02 Oct 2010No way. No lag or slowness for me. Dinesh: Thanks, im 20homescreen moves so slowly n sluggishly n reacts after a delay....not good
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010n8 is slow and laggy :(No way. No lag or slowness for me.
Dinesh: Thanks, im 20
jael, 02 Oct 2010hi wheeze im gonna ask some question to ur n8, how the camera performance? bacause carl zei... moreBattery should not be removed by the user. Nokia care will do it during warranty. Opening the bottom cap might void the warranty. You can do a full power cut off by holding the power button down for 8s like in computers or laptops.
Hi guys plz see this http://www.allaboutsymbian.com...re_and_m.php it is more balanced review. Congrats wheez on ur N8 i just wonder how old r u.
The Nokia N8 GPU is a Broadcom 2727 GPU capable of processing 32 million trianlges/sec. This is much faster than the Galaxy S integrated GPU (ARM Cortex/ Hummingbird architecture) which processes 22 million triangles/ sec and Snapdragon at 10 million triangles/sec. So you can see the N8 is packing a lot of graphics punch!
jael, 02 Oct 2010hi wheeze im gonna ask some question to ur n8,

No video light, sadly.
Ui is fast and responsive, nothing to complain there
