Anonymous, 30 Jul 2010Yes i agree with you the symbian 3 is not a fast os it tends to lag and you can notice screen ... moreI think the N8 performing great in the video.
Have you personally hands on tested N8 yet?
Else how can you be so sure that N8 is slow?
I personally tested WAVE at the Samsung flagship shop. The multi-task is so unstable that it give "out of memory" error with just 6 apps. Then it can't even allowed me to close the apps through the multi-tasker.
I tested the video recording function. The recorded sound quality was total disaster.
LED light is not helping at all.
Galaxy S don't even have a single LED flash.
What is it for to have so many home screens when the widget are mostly big in size and one home screen can only accommodate not more than 3 widgets?????
I don't even want to talk about IOS simply because it is not even worth to mention here.
So what if Bada, Android and IOS is SUPER FAST???
With all these flaws..... one word USELESS.
I still will give N8 and Symbian 3 a chance.
Since it is the most matured compared to all the lousy crappy so called OS mentioned by you.
i like this phone alot, but its not superamoled, oh well maybe someday samsung will let other manufacturer use thier latest and greatest technology
pooper, 30 Jul 2010I watched symbian^3 demos on youtube and it looks a lot slower and unresponsive than android o... moreYes i agree with you the symbian 3 is not a fast os it tends to lag and you can notice screen splitting issue in some of youtube videos,nokia and normal people can notice that and compare symbian 3 with andriod,iOS,and even bada and they will see how slow is symbian,other problem that people lieing about is that symbian does not need more processor speed and more ram while the truth is that symbian can not utilize faster processor and bigger ram,no one notice the first iphone was slow or first andriod phone was slow but by increasing the processor speed these phones become faster unlike the symbian which still slow.
some people here are bashing samsung galaxy because it is made of plastic as if nokia never produced a plastic phones or as nokia stopped doing so.
and for the one who said that he can not show his galaxy because it is made of plastic,i advice him to check the super amoled screen in a near by samsung dealer and he will know that no other phone can be showed in the presence of galaxy except the samsung wave.
No guys i hv also seen d n8 on Youtube n its realy amazing,not slow at all. UI also pleasant
pooper, 30 Jul 2010I watched symbian^3 demos on youtube and it looks a lot slower and unresponsive than android o... moreI watched it also. Not slow this was a demonstration of the FEATURES not the responsiveness. Long story short I had to use my "OLD" 6680 to complete this phone contract. It almost identical in weight the N8 is thinner which shows you what 5 years & Nokia can do. The 6680 cpu is 220 Mhz and I can d/load maps, multi task. Both the N97 & N86 are 434Mhz. Where the N8 excels is the 10.2/2.0 3G+ speeds, 6680 384
this is a near perfect touch screen phone as phone goes.
It makes you wonder what next? I personally would have been happy with 8mp as I sent some 20 photos using 2 emails (10 per email) due zip attachment beig too large that only 3.2mp camera phone
Crunk, 30 Jul 2010I agree wit zangetsu, im glad nokia didnt pt 1 of dose dumb 1ghz processors, dat would hv kill... moregood one

Oh n 2 al dose iphone lovers dat r also bashing da n8, da iphone needs a $2 bumper case to make a $800 gadget work, hahaha steve jobs does a great job 2 influence u ppl 2 buy dat fone hahahaha
I watched symbian^3 demos on youtube and it looks a lot slower and unresponsive than android or ios phones. Significantly slower! And that is a shame because the N8 has one of the most all-rounded hardware out of any smartphone on the market.
That and the release date makes me wonder if the N8 is even going to succeed or not.
After all it says Made in Finland. I didn't saw this from a very long time. I am ordering now.
watch dis video nokia n8 is so smooth flawless, no lags or hangs
I don't get it why there are so many of you ignorant and angry fools bashing this phone (or any other phone, brand, etc) Let's take few examples:
1: CPU: 680 MHz ARM11 and 256 MB RAM:- some OSs are not hungry for that crunching power of 1+GHz CPU and don't use as much RAM, therefore Nokia can afford to use a previews generation of CPU with lower clock speeds, because it can handle the OS good enough, it does not drain battery like crazy, and it doesn't get super HOT(i had problems with Moto Milestone(Droid) doing same things as my HTC Hero, the droid getting too hot in most common tasks like web browsing, even browsing the Market and installing apps).
2: Display Resolution of 360*640 on a 3.5 inch screen is perfectly fine, remember the iPhone's res and screen size, it didn't seem to bother anyone, and the N8's is even higher. I have a PSP with 480*272 resolution and is decent enough to watch a movie/cartoon on it.
3: Symbian^3 is a new OS, redesigned functionality wise. Of course, the UI resembles S60v5 a lot, but as far as i've seen it runs much smoother, and they've improve it a lot since it was first demoed.
4: Camera is very important for some people, after all, for a phone the most common uses are: making calls, texting/email, taking pictures/videos and web browsing --which are very well implemented on the N8. Other features like gaming appeal more to a niche segment of the market, and the phone also manages to run a few up to date cross platform titles.
I know there are phones with a lot more power under the hood, but you can't accomplish a lot more with that extra grunt.
Please excuse me if i made any language mistakes, i'm from Romania.
Trent, 30 Jul 2010Well.. Yes I did. As I really want the N8. But without that CHECKERBOARD ISSUE during Zoom out... moreHi trent. Just wondering where you saw/read about the checkerboard effect? If it's not too much trouble do you mind posting the link of your source? I'd like to see it too... it is a bit worrying if it does this. Thanks in advance.
