Those are mostly samsung fanboys especially wave users voting against N8. I know them but its worthless to pay attention to rating. How one can judge device performance before the actual launch, how the rating for design, features acould change? Aren't they same from launch? There is only one reason, haters are coming and voting against. That makes it a useless thing. Wait for actual review, It will tell truth.
I see! The haters are doing there job. From 9.1 9.3 9.1 to 8.5 8.6 8.5 u are kidding. In my own honest view this phone is way better than any other phone in the market. Galaxy and the wave are trying but they are nowhere near the N8s' league. I can't talk abt the iphone 4 coz its evolutionary rather than revolutionary. The rating for the N8 should be 10 10 10. Honestly it should
Mahadev Sahoo, 10 Jun 2010Everyone who thinks that a big processor has higher speed is completely wrong..when all highes... moreIts the symbian architecture that easy to implement thats cuts the cost and also the higher proccessor speed hits on battery more than the price hike,,symbian is a very efficient highly optimised o/s ..
WAKA....WAKA..... IT'S TIME FOR AFRICA... Nokia... It's shame on u that u couldn't release it before the World Cup Soccer Carnival....starts. U MISSED IT
oh man i can tell samsung will be on nokia's a$$ for symbian3 on their devices
Well... I had Nokia,and Iphone.... But whit Nokia more fun! N8 or i4...- N8 for sure!!!! Nokia the best brand ever!!!!
I am happy to see Nokia is listening to their customers. A 12mp camera with a focal lengt bigger then 28mm is like a f1 car driving on a gravel road. Finally Nokia has decided to do the right thing. The N8 will be my next phone too :-)
Everyone who thinks that a big processor has higher speed is completely wrong..when all highest specifications can easily work in a 600mhz processor why built a 1ghz cpu....each ounce of increse in cpu leads to high in price of the device as cpu are very costly which are genereally hidden to consumers...that is the only reason the cost of Nokia n8 is lower than other higher range phones....
I would recommend a nokia n8 more than a apple i phone4...its like a dream to hold a 12 mega pixel camera mobile for so low cost...advantage goes to nokia this time along....
Finally Nokia is starting to make good phones again, A Capacitive touchscreen and a new / modified os makes all the difference
i gat enough money 2 buy iphone4 but i wont buy it , i gonna buy 2 n8 , one for me n one for my girl friend.

On topic of nokia N8's camera. Camera quality is a sum of several factors in general:
2. Objective (lens, focal length, etc)
3. Image processing software
4. Build quality
If you really want to compare to iphones, it's not going to be much of a comparison. N8 is in a league of "camera phones", with high quality lens, extremely large sensor and powerful flash. Software is the only thing that can really fail the phone in this category, and the video they demonstrated of Rhianna's concert some time ago pretty much put that to rest. Even with all the spotlights, horrible contrast differences and other problems of shooting in a concert, camera performed admirably. It would probably need a proper camera to compare against where it would lose on objective and focal length horribly, but it's definitely in a different league from ANY phone I've used with a camera attached.
Considering that apple has never had a high quality camera on a phone (and latest offering doesn't really offer anything else then minor catch-up without really getting close), this isn't something you'd want to advertise on as an apple fan. You risk losing more then gaining.
And Quote Steve Jobs “The iPhone is the first phone with native video chat. ”
If we were living in 2002 it would have been. You mean to tell me Apple have had 3G & 3.5G modems all this time & have only just realized that they can do video calling. Btw, native video calling was possible since 2003, 2004 with any high end nokia etc... where have you been?
the new iphone 4 will be the next must have accesary..even if the n8 is better in terms of specs..or..even if the new samsung wave or galaxy has better specs than the iphone4, nokia ,samsung or any of the other brands cant compete with the apple marketing machine,,,this will be the biggest phone in the mobile world..( video calls over wifi only, i4 to i4 only,,give me a break )
Dani, 10 Jun 2010People think that it has a 12mp camera and its going to be great.well that is where you are wr... moreMind explaining what does "EXTREMELY GOOD PIXELS" means.
Are you saying that the sensor used in the Ip4 is better? Do state what is the sensor size and the maker please.
Are you stating the mega pixel count? 5 is bigger than 12 you say.
But since you are naive enough to make a statement comparing the selection of CPUs for different OSes, maybe you are also referring to pixel count in the screen? Yes the Ip4 has larger pixel count but what would that have to do with the camera?
Just so you know, the 1Gz CPU is throttled down to 800Mz in the Ip4. Need help figuring out why?
Ok multitasking done better?
Hey sorry to break this to Mr Jobs but Symbian have been doinga fine & excellent job of Multitasking properly for 5 years. Now they take it to the next level with Visual multitasking. Symbian S60 v5 has done proper drop bar multi tasking way before apple 7& you know what - it works well & is ahead of apple again. Bogey
I actually see Apple has copied this frame for frame, pixel for pixel looking at their iphone 4 unveiling & by the looks of it thinks he can do it better, is he having a laugh, wheres he been to ...the moon. This guys OS is so far behind with the things it can't do. he has to add apps that enable it, rather than built into the very fabric of it's architecture as standard. lol Double bogey
Organization /Folder structures?
Again, where has Steve jobs & apples customers been for so long ...Symbian has done this long before apple & intelligent folder organization, structure & creation is not even remotely something new. Steve Jobs. Microsoft had it first, then symbian, then you, you might of added some intelligence or UI bliss, but I want to name my own folders, having some device name it for you. How lazy are apple customers. Managability IOS4 is going beyond by doing things without your approval or for you. Triple bogey
TFT is better than OLED?
Steve Jobs reckons the TFT LED screen is going to outperform OLED. Maybe the IPS might be better at motion. But contrast, definiton & colour he's very wrong. Comparitivly speaking if you had the same PPI, screen resolution TFT IPS vs OLED. OLED wins because hte pixels switch on off much quicker, fluid motion more so than TFT. What FPS does apples UI run at? S^3 60FPS. Epic fail
