You kept saying "my" X10. This is better known as buyer's remorse. You out have spent ur life savings on that phone and the jealousy insided forces you to say bad things about this phone. All just to make urself feel better that you bought the "best" phone. Whether it is or not, it doesn't matter! Grow the hell up. It shouldn't upset you that people in this world might have a better stupid phone than you! Good day sir

> In reply to Tom-Helge @ 2010-05-18 16:00 from SrdG - click to readHi Tom,

You do not seem to be the smartest chap around here. Funny thing is, you talk as if you are very knowledgeable about processors etc, when it is clear you are not. You see, just going by processor speed is simply Stupid. Yes, I said that. Stupid. Not only does Symbian have much less hardware requirements than Android (since it is not a VM) and is a much more nimble. Aside from that, the UI in S^3 is hardware accelerated (Android is not, which is another reason it needs a snapdragon, which also brings terrible battery life) , why do you not include the GPU in your analysis? The one in the N8 is pretty good, as far as I know the Snapdragon one is...nonexistent? It is ironic, that you compare all these things like CPU, RAM, etc, then wield them like they are weapons in a fight, when they are actually necessary evil, necessary to make Android run smooth, killing your battery while doing so. What is good about that? That is just as stupid as a megapixel race.

Listen, I am not against the X10, I like the device, just not the OS or the rubber. I like the N8's design better, its camera, the brand (personal) its made of aluminum which I like as well, etc etc. I just think the discussion here is very shallow, and resembles bickering between opposing football fans more than furthering understanding.

Why?

> In reply to Niraj @ 2010-05-18 16:18 from KFMZ - click to readI can shut up totally when you guys realize that this phone is not high spec even if it have more internal memory, USB function that isn't really usefull today, great build quality (Yeah my XPERIA X1 and X10 also have great build quality even if the X10 is out of plastic mostly).

My X10 also have FM radio, or it can use FM Radio at least, you just have to use this to get it to work: http://www.sonyericsson.com/cw...o&lc=no.

You don't really need any phones to get that to work as a radio though. But still, my X10 was delivered with an FM radio.

A secondary camera isn't really needed today. My XPERIA X1 have a secondary camera. And how much do you think i have used it?. 2 times in 1 year lol.

So even if the N8 have those functions that X10 doesn't have, it doesn't mean the N8 is high spec.

Well yeah, i agree, it's high spec to be Nokia, but that's it.

The platform experienced total change from the foundation of S^1, meaning it's functions and fluidity is completely different. Only the appearance is still the same.

If you are the type who like to exploit every last bit of your phone's capability, then by all means, go for the N900. However, if you are the type which like to take photos spontaneously and like to try out something new or refreshing, I would definitely recommend the N8. I also believe the N8 will be slightly cheaper than the N900 since the N900 has a release price of Euro 500 while the N8 will be priced at around Euro 370 before tax.

I would definitely get myself a N8 since I like to take photos and also have a liking for capacitive touchscreen as well as OLED screen. =D

You say it is better than x10 in only camera wise and bt 3.0..? See these other specifications of N8:
USB On Go
Wifi n
Great build quality
Fm Radio
Fm transmitter
Secondry camera
16 gb internal memory
These things are not present on X10.. But x10 has fluid ui, good screen resolution and big screen, which is better than n8...

> In reply to Jim @ 2010-05-18 15:35 from kc$W - click to readDude, you can't be much updated about specifications on mobile phones today. You must be living in stone age or something.

First of all, calling this a high spec mobile phone with a poor ARM 11 680 MHz processor is as stupid as it can get. It doesn't even have an ARM Cortex CPU. FAIL FAIL FAIL.

And calling a screen with 360x640 resolution for high spec is as much fail as it can get to. 360x640 resolution is soooooooo early 2009.

This is called low spec, not high spec.

You Nokia crowd are funny as hell.

As for performance and smoothness, my Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 smokes the N8 extremely hard in everything except for the camera / recording thing.

Oh, N8 also have Bluetooth 3.0, wooooh, 2 things that are better than the X10.

So my question is though, since this phone is mainly for camera usage. Then why is it running Symbian when the phone can't really be used for anything else than the camera / recording function because of the N8 have a crap CPU that's can't run many programs today without lagging badly.
