There are newer nokia symbian device if you're an all out symbianite. Otherwise, there are lower priced phones out there that can do better than this (windows phone or android). I still use my nokia n8 albeit I prefer my xperia mini pro even though it's smaller and lousy camera, unfortunately I broke my mini pro so I have to endure using N8 for now until I buy a new phone on December (holidays=discounts). I use my n8 primarily to make and answer gsm calls, text, camera still great. for actual skype and other IM apps, experience is not very great. Honestly. Many developers have stopped supporting symbian apps so buying an n8 today is not a very good investment.

We were promised support at least until 2016 by Mr. Elop and now, one by one, all the services are getting killed for Symbian. The Maps data in WP and Symbian is the same and it wouldn't be hard to update the Nokia Maps for Symbian. It wouldn't surprise me if tomorrow the Nokia Store and the Nokia Maps for Symbian stops working. Just for WP, Nokia betrayed all its loyal customers. I like Nokia Maps a lot which is why I had to use the Lumia 625 but not anymore because Here Maps are available for Galaxy phones now. Goodbye Microsoft. WP OS is doomed to failure.

Still Symbian is better than WP 8.1 OS in terms of openness and features. Check it out.

Right now, even though i still love my n8 i can say it is not worthy to buy anymore. Not that is not good, but jist cause every support for it will be killed this year. There are some guys trying to keep Symbian alive, but, let's face it...there is no road for it anymore. Don't get me wrong, it is a great device and still has allot of functionalities, but for what you want...and for what people this days want...hmm.

Sad news if Microsoft will stop Skype on Symbian. There are many many many Symbian devices still out there. What they need to do is bind the customers by give them a working Skype app on Symbian so they might buy a WP device later.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-08-24 07:05 from YQNZ - click to readYou probably have never used or even touched the Nokia N8. It's a one of a kind phone. This phone has a single core 680Mhz processor and just 256 MB RAM which is by today's standard outdated but due to the resource efficiency of Symbian OS, this phone with just a single core 680 Mhz processor and 256 MB of RAM runs Asphalt 6 smooth without any hiccups, and this results in better battery backup. You are brainwashed by the stupid specs race that Android started. Having used three Android phones in two years, there wasn't a single phone that was lag free and offered as much flexibility as my Nokia N8. You would only understand the power of this phone when you hold it in your hands! Can you think of any Android phone having that much RAM and processor that can run Asphalt 6 smoothly?

Get the handset checked for any defects at Nokia care near you. If there are no defects or minor defects which won't affect the user experience then buy it.
