i guess that this forum is for the N8, and not your personal blogspot, so i gues nobody realy cares WHAT you buy.

So go ight ahead, buy one of those pieces of sh1t plastic phones. Oh, and on second thought, why buy a SE "smartphone" when their smartphones aren't even "home-made"...but by HTC, or using Symbian. Why not get the ORIGINAL Htc or Nokia. I'll tell you why: because SE is CHEAPER, using cheap materials, cheap port sockets, cheap build quality, cheap accesories, etc. SE is only good for using about 1year, after 1 year they get so "degraded" you ight as well throw them away.

In terms of price and hardware features (besides physical RAM (16 Gig mass storage aside), screen type and res and processor spec, this phone has perhaps the best hardware features available and at an absolutely fantastic price.

This phone will win on a couple of grounds.

Firstly, those who prefer features over flexibility. Like the N97, I don't believe that the phone will provide the flexibility of say Windows Mobile, iPhone, or even Android. App developers struggle to create apps for Symbian. Think about why we don't have "digital copy downloads" for Symbian etc, or no DivX players (unlike the one we had for N95).

Secondly, the phone will attract people who aren't too bothered about the interface - perhaps looking for something like the N95. This is a nice phone. It still feels tired and dated to me, but I've been using Symbian since the 3360 I believe.

Thirdly, price. With the features, it is a winner. If you can overcome the UI and the lack of official apps, then this WILL be an amazing phone.

I can be sure to use ovi maps where there were no phone signal, like in the mountain, on remote island, or on the sea.

Sony Ericsson doesn't have plastic screen, it have a scratch proof mineral glass screen.

SOme guys at XDA-Developers even says that the screen protector that comes with the X10 is pointless because you should be damn good to scratch the X10's screen by using it normally.

Well atm the X10 is not the best Smartphone to buy. But because it will get really nice later when it's getting the Android 2.1 update and when the battery issue will be fixed, then you have one of the best Smartphones on the market. Even in Q4 this year.

Yes you have to manually set the light on when you have to take pictures, but that's also getting fixed in Android 2.1.

Not sure why others says the X10 is out of bad plastic quality, because my X10 (yes i actually owns it) does have very good plastic quality.

And the thing about the buttons is personal tastes. I have no problems to press the buttons. So they are perfectly fine for me.

I also forgot to say that when you want to use your phone as a GPS, then 4-inch over 3.5-inch. That's for sure.

X10 has Li-Po 1500mAh and its well known for Battery problems.

Nokia E63 uses Li-P0 of 1500mAh.

Battery for N8 should have been better. Unfortunately its not.

- N8 has AMOLED screen which takes lesser battery power
- N8 runs Symbian 3. Symbian^3 is a rework of Symbian^1, fixing and improving the OS from the base to the top. Conclusion is Symbian itself takes less battery power.

Conclusion – Nobody can argue that N8 has lesser battery power than most of its competitive devices. But my belief is it should be enough for a day’s optimum use. And touch devices requires daily charge.

Disadvantage – You can’t keep a spare battery with you because N8 battery is not easily replaceable. Not quite happy with the N8 Screw approach.

And also, you don't buy a Smartphone to just take pictures and record movies with. You use a Smartphones to do alot of things with it. And when it's about that, i'll take a phone with most ram, best CPU, biggest screen then.

Believe me when i say it, when you surf the web and watch movies, then highest resolution possible is the way to go.

And if your going to buy a phone like this, your most likely to take alot of pictures outside. And what happens if your outside with alot sun with AMOLED screens?. Yes, they are horrible in sun. You don't see much then.

I'll take TFT screens way before i even thinks about AMOLED screens if it's about using your phone alot outside.

Super AMOLED is the way to go if you want a really good screen.

If there really is a phone from Nokia i want, it have to be the N900.

> In reply to Tom-Helge @ 2010-05-16 13:22 from SrdG - click to readhave you even looked at the specs of SE Vivaz and Xperia X10? N8 beats Vivaz hands down. depending on what you use your phone for X10 may be better, but i'd rather symbian^3 than android 1.6, N8 has better camera with xenon flash, 720p video, free gps with voice guidance, more space to store apps (X10 can only have 512 MB for apps!!! ridiculous). only advantage X10 has is more powerful CPU but that *does not* mean it will be faster overall. N8 will be cheaper than overpriced SE. and since its a nokia the N8 is guaranteed to have better after-purchase support in terms of firmware updates etc. OK?

> In reply to Scorpions @ 2010-05-16 13:22 from mp%D - click to readthe problem with dedicated cam/camcorders is that they are never there when we need them. Its better to settle for slightly lower quality photos than to bring a digi-cam wherever we go. The lack of optical zoom on cellfones is the biggest problem, but for regular ppl taking occasoinal photos it really doesnt matter much. And for a pro, he would not use any of the consumer level digicams anyway, right? So i think camphones are good enough for 95% of us, the other 5% have special ionterest in photography and would not settle for anything less than a SLR where each of his lenses alone would cost more tha N8.

Still, that doesnt make N8 a good smartphone, hi res cam and low res display sums it up, those are the big advantage and the big disadvantage.
