Modders owning Omnia HD are busy porting Nokias Symbian homescreen to their devices. In short Touch Wiz sucks.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2010-06-05 01:34 from mi6N - click to readYou gonna a newbie about Symbian OS. This is the custom firmware on Omnia HD highly optimized for speed, cook such daily. With these type of firmwares, even the N97 turns out to be 1000+. What one want is this type of performance out of the box. I am sure if we able to port speed optimized firmwares to N8, it shall score 2500+ on Speedy Go benchmarks.

Is this phone SymRDP compatible?
I'll need this phone if it can work with SymRDP.

N8 based on old UI and slow os (soft rendering in menus) that is the point!

@ Mark.

That's some sweet looking headset.

N8 gaming performance. Finestfones benchmarks used an app specifically designed for Symbian OS's called "Speed Go!" which uses the phone accelerometer which has a speed test utility which tests overall speed of the phone.

They say using "Speed Go!" N8 scored 180% higher over the N97, & 54% over the Omnia HD. "Speed Go!" was tested on N8 with 10 widgets running on homescreen, 5 on first homsecreen, 5 on second homescreen, none on the third. The N8 scored 777 in that test. It's still prototype.

The benchmarks FPC 3d Bench is apparently limited to 60FPS, so Using FPC Bench 3D to test N8 Graphics performance, it maxed out with a score of 60FPS in each test.

Some people would like to know to see benchmarks on the USB 3.0 transfer rate, both wired and wireless. Also USB2go, specifically viewing 720p files on a thumbdrive being connected to a HDTV with n8 as host.

Also a desciption of how bad is the OLED screen in sunlight, some have heard it's really bad, but could be a bad rumour. Some pictures taken in the dark would be nice aswell.

I recently bought newly arrived 5235 for my little bro and got same headset in package. Output is very packaging. I guess same is being shipped with high end music phones like X6 and its 16 GB variant.

I'm guessing like 1 or 2 months after Android 2.1 is released, since Sony Ericsson doesn't have to redo much about TimeScape and MediaScape and the rest of it's UI from 2.1 to 2.2, since 2.1 and 2.2 is 99% the same.

So they can just change some few codes and port over to 2.2 easily.

That's what i think will happen. But ofc, that might not happen though.

I'm still using BH 503 with red matching accents on 5800. So are those headphones included in the retail package for the N8?
