People do not get that more powerful processor the more power phone needs the lesser batter life is going to be. Then more powerful processor will make phone more expensive for little or no noticeable performance gain.
Anyone dealing with computers knows that memory often provides more practical gain than processor upgrade.

Manufacturer had to balance all these considerations. Hopefully they are right. Hopefully S3 is not as power hungry as other OS and everything will work well. Time will show. Meanwhile waiting for the thing to be released, but ideally I would prefer N8 specs with N97 Qwerty keyboard. N9?

Whether or not, this Phone is good, only time will tell.

One thing is very clear, lots of people are visiting N8 page else popularity wouldn’t be 96%.

While, I am not a fan of Nokia, but this is going to be my next phone without any doubt.

If it is crap, it doesn’t even matter, because there is no phone with such high end spec currently. And till other manufacturers, don’t release them, this is going to be on top of the phones as long as specs are concerned.

Few will argue, they might think I am talking stupid, but here are the facts,

Satio –
+ Definitely, Cortex A8 600 MHz, better than A11 of Nokia N8
- 12 MP camera clicks photos at 72dpi vs 300dpi of N8( Based on sample images)
- WVGA Video recording of Satio vs 720p Video recording

Xperia/Wave/Android Desire
+ All running on 1 GHz processor though Wave has different make
- Camera of 8/5/5 MP, definitely lesser than N8

While, if you are talking about only processor, N8 is behind.
If you are talking about OS, Symbian 3 has not been released so can’t comment.

I don’t want to comment on iphone, as I think it’s a basic phone, who would like to have a phone with 3.2 MP camera, no FM radio, no file transfer with Bluetooth, itunes dependency and so on and on.

16GB on board with 32 GB additional through microSD card, no phone will even stand closer to N8.

And expected price is 370 Euros, and if it is, why would we go for 450Pounds Xperia or 399 pounds HTC desire of Iphone for that matter.

GOODLUCK

happy to watch tons of criticism about NOKIA N8. i am definitely going to buy this N8 crap. to all WAVE, GALAXY, iPHONE, ANDROID, WIN7 lovers; please leave this crap for insane people like us. go and poke your nose in review pages of iPHONE, WAVE & GALAXY. go there and write long lecture about there features, praise them.
critics love to criticize everything. actually they dont know to praise anything. they are frustrated people.

Anyway i m waiting desperately to play with this N8(Gr8) & i m damn sure billions of people also.
now critics.... keep up your job.
