new n8 user, 08 Oct 2012thanks for advise. I'm using this phone about one n half month. I dont notice this at first bu... moreSorry, maybe i made my self misunderstood. If you bought it for camera it is ok, camera shouldn't have no problem. In night shots is normal that the camera will give you some amount of noise. To prove to your self that the camera is ok, go with your friend and take the same night shot somewhere. Then put the both pics in a pc and take a look if there is any difference. The problem with the screen is because of manufacture failure... and the screen cannot produce beautiful colors, distorting them. In low light conditions this problem becomes very visible and most times annoying, you know... is like you select 16 bit color in windows '98 or xp. Everything becomes like a paint. You can also see this problem very clearly if you play fruit ninja in the same time with a good screen phone. But, i suppose you haven't seen this until you friend discovered that the colors are phooey. So, if this is on your mobile, than you have no camera problems, the camera takes good shots, just that the screen is faulty and produce them wrong. At some, very wrong. At some, not so annoying wrong:). A screen is not so expensive, you can buy one your self and go somewhere just to install it for you. Or if the phone is new you can take it to nokia care and tell them to change the screen cause is faulty. Will be for free.

Unfortunarely now i say that 90% it's your screen to be the blame. Search 'purple tint n8' on google and see if looks familiar to you. Normaly this problem is from factory, are you shore it's a new problem for you? This problem reduce the quality of your viewer and is very noticeble in dark areas of the picture and also in low light conditions. When there is dark outside and the screen turns the light down. I'm sorry but... If you cannot live with this, then go to nokia when you have some money. You can also try a reflash of the system in day light, maybe the sensor doesn't work good, though i doubt that..
Carol, 07 Oct 2012Never heard about this, at the end of your comment sounds like you have the camera lenses very... moreNo, when i watch the picture on pc then its normal(but still there little bit noise, not as mobile screen). at daylight its very good but at night/low light then the noises came. my camera lens is clear and no dust in there. even i tell u, when i see some another pics like wallpaper or watch movie clips there also same problem, the dark portion of that pics/videos got noise(many tiny colorful dots & less detail). is any screen problem? if so then its very expensive for me to change the screen.i dont use theme. i set default theme of 'Evolve', and there at below on the task bar showing some pinkish lines. i try to restore my phone but still the same. what can i do? plz reply..

new n8 user, 06 Oct 2012plz..guyzz. i have faced some camera problem! when i'm going take picture at night/low light a... moreWhile taking photos in the dark especially of distant objects you have to keep your flash off as the flash is meant for objects within a 2-4 metre range. Beyond that you have to rely on ambient light with night mode on. Also make sure you remove the plastic covering on the camera and wipe off any dust because that can spoil night time photos. Also during night mode shot the exposure time is more to capture greater amount of light so you have to keep the camera very steady or the photos will be blurred. Preferably support it on some surface our on a tripod and best to use self timer to remove any motion blur. These are General tips for any camera while using in low light conditions. Best way to learn is to play with all the settings like white balance and iso ,etc and you will learn what works best in what condition.

If you take daylight shots, are this problems noticeable? Or they are noticeable only when taking night shots with flash? Also if the flash is dirty you will be amazed how bed can a picture turn. Also, have you watched the shots and the videos in your pc? If not, try to do that and see if there is the same problem as it is in your phone. Can be a screen problem to (though I doubt that) but if in pc the files are the same, then there is no screen problem. try to clean up the camera glass with window washing solution and something very soft, and the flash to. Also, see if you have dust inside the glass... if you have, that is mkind of hard to clean:). If there is non of the above, do a firmware reinstall by the method i mentioned earlier, maybe you're lucky.:)
rajitt, 06 Oct 2012what is this 3 button method? can u consider me as a person with no knowledge of the technical... moreThat is a problem then. Is better for you not to do this if you wanna keep apps like: photo editor, video editor, quick office, adobe reader etc. cause it is hard to reinstall the firmware with Phoenix (not extremely hard, but you need to understand some processes). You know how to backup with nokia suite? If yes, then manually backup only the important staff: contacts, messages! After this, copy everything you need from mass storage in pc. Again don't copy the folders with apps: cities, private, resource, sys, system. Now format the mass memory by phone: go to files, long press mass memory/ format/ wait until all is over. Now go to: settings/phone/phone management/factory settings/delete data and restore/yes/give the security code if you have one (12345 or none = default). Phone will restart and the process can take from 5 to 10 minutes, don't alert your self and wait for the phone to turn on. Now format again the mass memory. Open nokia suite in pc and plug the phone in, let nokia suite install what it needs to. After everything is done, go to software update and install the new firmware, or reinstall if you already have it. That's it. Remember, you will loose all your apps and setting, you will need to install them back, but i recommend to you to install only what you really need and only good staff. Also, the theme you install is very important. Don't install 20 themes, install just one in phone memory. Don't install crappy themes that makes your phone lazy. Install daeva112's themes, or adelino, or ind190. Tho, in my phone the themes from daeva are super-fast, don't know what this guy is doing... but i like.
My question is why when I try to download some program from Nokia store the application send massage that " There was a problem signing in. Check your phone`s date and time settings. " But the date and time is correct I think ?!!!!!
plz..guyzz. i have faced some camera problem! when i'm going take picture at night/low light area there is huge noise came in the screen, why? and also same in video recording. i've watched some night video sample of n8 from you-tube but there is no such noise as mine. another problem, when i watch any video on n8's screen the dark portion of some scenes grew up very noisy and detail were decreased. is any screen problem or what? does anybody try to take picture of sky at night? there is huge small dots!! plz.. help..i'm using belle refresh.

Also, the mod's for overclocking n8's processor are not yet proved to work. I can give you some advises to make your n8 work as it should. First: your problem may be because you had never formatted the phone?? I know that the 3 button method is risky because you lose some apps from your phone and reinstalling the firmware will not install them back, but... If i were you i would do like this: first i would download the latest original firmware with Navifirm. Then i would install phoenix (here comes the beautiful thing) Now i format the memory card than hard format the phone memory with the 3 button method. Now install the firmware with the phoenix software. Everything would be like out of the box, all the apps would be there etc... If you wanna know more about this, ask. And after that never use crappy themes, allot of them are slowing down the phone, some of them are slowing the phone down by 30%. I use daeva112 themes, seems like his themes are the only ones not slowing down the system. revolve and Blurry Circle are the fastest out there.
I own an N8 and an N9, but the N8 has been giving me problems recently. It keeps showing me that the phone memory (C:) is full, to the extent that I am unable to open even the settings in the menu. I have deleted all messages, as well as a few softwares but to no avail. Kindly help me on this and also please advise me on how to increase RAM memory and processor speed if possible.
