The only good thing i can find with this phone is the camera and the HD recording. And that's basicly all that's good with this phone.

The rest is just outdated. Poor resolution. Kinda poor CPU. The screen is meh, because AMOLED sucks outside in sun, so i rather have a TFT screen.

And the OS on the phone is just fail.

So anyone who buys this phone buys it for the camera and HD recording, and nothing else.

With the good price and good specand brand new symbian version

what more can you ask for?

Add 4" screen? Larger res? 1ghz processor?
Then you must pay nokia euro 100+50 more
50 is for nokia to charge you for making limited editon, so total is eoro 520 ; it is still a good price for those people who are difficulty to please

Quite good specifications, superb camera, only thing i'm disappointed about is the symbian ^3 (hopefully it won't be a disappointment) and the 3.5" screen with a relatively low resolution. Come on, a larger screen and a higher resolution could have been implemented in this phone...

I find it interesting that a lot of commentary about the N8 usually results in comparing it to flagship phones from competitors. Flagship phones usually priced at 30% to 50% about the N8's suggested retail offering. I suppose the consumer is going to decide if an N8 at EURO 370 / USD 499 is delivering value relative to the rest of the field. I personally do not think Symbian ^3 is a game changer relative to Apple OS4 or Android 2.2...but with its significant improvements and its marriage to well spec'd hardware...I do believe the consumer will notice a BIG difference and that attitudes will turn very positive on Nokia's ability to deliver a fantastic platform at such a competitive price point. I will go for the N8...it's offering too much value to ignore.

When people get out to photography they go prepared with SLR's not Phone but there's some situations that a photographer will kill to get but don't have their camera with then they can use a brilliant camera mobile like N8 to catch the moment as close to digicam quality as possible. And about HD video?? Check out vivaz video's. Like I said they are as close to HD as possible. So kindly stop senseless talks.

You know guys...this phone is now facing sevaral challanges...
1. To beat the camera of Samsung W880 AMOLED (Though its only for korea) which is the 1st ever 12MP with optical zoom (should be easy).
2. To beat Vivaz's HD video (Not so easy because camera sensor largeness has little to do with video recording, its entirely software and processor dependant).
3. To at least match Omnia HD's AMOLED screen (Beating it would be impossible and Wave,beam,galaxyS super AMOLED screen is out of question).
4. To match the speed performance of Arm cortex A8 600MHz powered N900 (iPhone 3GS Not possible)
5. To get close to 5800's loud speaker with a louder mono speaker.
6. To match 5800 audio quality.
7. To get close to android UI flexibility and comfort.
8. To match the video playback capabilities of Omnia HD by including more formats like Divx/Xvid up to 720p (Nokia didn't comfirm it like they did with N900) because 3rd party apps like core, smart movie won't play 720p even if they play Divx/Xvid up to VGA.
9. To beat the Xenon flash power of SE C905 (Pixon12 and Satio failed).
10. To have a competative net browser (Symbian^1 browser was a failure).


If N8 stands up to these challanges than the phon will be another revolutionary N95 (and my next phone)...otherwise, a usual Nokia FAILURE.(N96, N97 etc.)...anyone dare to disagree with me??

> In reply to Scorpions @ 2010-05-16 01:35 from mp%D - click to readLOL, guys! I did not lost my mind nor I see everything through my eyes only. ;) I agree with you Scorpions and Anonymous(except the chill pill lol ) I have nothing against cellphones and their evolution and their "all in one" method. If I had something against them I would have not bought a 550 euro cellphone last month ;) About the comparison you made between Panasonic G1 and N8(or any other phone)...pardon moi, but are you insane?How can you say that N8 is better than G1?! I dare you to take a photo with your phone and another one with the camera(same light, same conditions, same environment etc)and then let me know. ;)
In the near future I expect to see people saying that phones can beat HD cameras :D I say let's call Steven Spielberg and the other bunch of guys in Hollywood and tell them to get rid of their expensive cameras an buy some cellphones instead.This way they can save some money and get equal or even better performance.:D
Now, letting the jokes aside, these phones are indeed good for "point and shoot" events, but do not daydreaming.If you want to take photos(like real photos!)or real HD filming buy a dedicated photo or video camera.
Oh, by the way,I'm not here to argue... peace!
