OMG
This is Ahmed,
First his SW is old (I can tell)
Also something is CLEARLY wrong with his fingers....getting to the phone application is quick all the time!!
I dont know about this guy, but seems like his using his NAILS...and if you know how capacitive screens work....they dont work with NAILS (maybe he thinks its a resistive screen)!!!
Just take a look at my vids
Peace

> In reply to N8 Response Speed @ 2010-06-05 12:47 from mp%D - click to readStop spreading FUD or incomplete stories. The guy is using a capacitive screen with a screen protector for crying out loud! You can tell by the blue triangle in the corner.

Next to that, our chinaman here is using his nails on a capacitive screen with a protector. Next to that, that device is so beta, the flash is sticking out even.

Look at this video instead. It registers instantly, and is very fast as well.

I am happy you are trying to inform us, but please do it right and give us the complete story. Responsiveness is fantastic for this device.

Or do you think otherwise after seeing the video I link to?.......

I think everybody who claims N8 is very responsive must watch this video

He presses the dialer Button 5 times every second.

From 0:53 to 0:57 and then he gets it exactly the CALL DIALLER open at 0:58.

Even the hardware button, he presses twice or thrice and then it responds.

Please watch it carefully. This video will give clear picture of responsiveness of N8.

I am not going to judge and tell you whether it fails.

Watch it yourself.

good question, I own the N900 and I am very tempted to get the N8. I think the N900 is more of a computer, qwerty, resistive screen, and fantastic os.

N8 is better cam better flash, capacitive screen, very new OS (S^3).

N8 has better build quality too.

If you are a nerd like me get the N900, if not get the N8!

Cheers

Low light Video Sample: Nokia N8 at Rihanna Concert


This video of a Rihanna gig (I think in Tel-Aviv, Israel) is supposedly captured on a Nokia N8 according to uploader, Tal Tetievski.

* The video is in 720p and recorded in stereo audio.
* Stereo separation is obvious but this probably isn’t the best scene to demonstrate it.
* Considering how loud concerts are, the N8 performed extremely well picking up the audio without too much harshness (only audible on left side -seems to be more wind blowing rather than inability to record extremely loud audio which most camera phones fail beautifully at)
* Lots of changes between quite dark to lots of light and N8 handles transitions extremely well.
* Quality is quite impressive as this isn’t optimum lighting conditions for video, look at the confetti and the richness of the colours at certain scenes.
* Check out the usable digital zoom, which is actually worth using compared to most digital zoom that just blows up pixels.
* Shakiness is an issue, but then again the recorder is at a gig, thus jumping up and down, waving their hands about often results in shaky video.
* Video looks sufficiently fluid. No jerkiness, the frame rate looks smooth.
* Wide angle for widescreen 16:9 video looks fantastic, capturing more of the scene within the frame.
* People at Rihanna concert should be banned from bringing umbrellas. Yes, we get it. Man, so many eyes that could have been stabbed out! -_^

Jump to 2:10 for some pinch and zooming. It looks much smoother from second attempt onwards.

Video playback is almost instant after pressing. No loading screen, just playback.
