Anonymous, 14 May 2010We are the first to make a 12mp and this phone is only the camera the rest is rubbish 3.5 inch... morehahah that sounds great but why are you using nokia operating system on your first 12megapixel sony phone?? why didnt you make an Operating system yourself? AND why your sales is much much much much lower then Nokia? haha dont try to joke here dude.
Agreed. A lot of people only look at the technical specs without really doing any in-dept research of the OS. Mind you all, my current N82 is running quite smoothly with only 332Mhz worth of power on board. Symbian OS consumes very little amount of RAM, what more to say S^3. So I believe we should give it a chance and see what the actual product is like.
@Sunil. Thank you for the reply. Though you said that the OLED screen is not as brilliant as those found in Omnia HD, however it is still AMOLED so I believe the viewing experience will be breathtaking. I am still curious on why you said it will suffer some lag. From what I have seen from the demo of the execution of some N8 games, it is quite smooth.
Some one has said that x10 is better than n8 because x10 has 4" screen.. I'm not agree with him. This is a phone not a tablet so I think 3.5" is a better choice..
Focus range of Nokia N8 is 60cm to infinity.. In this range Nokia N8 will be take better video than one who has continuous autofocus like Vivaz.. And I think most of the peoples take video from a minimum distance of 1 meter..right..! So it will take better videos.. Or even you can say best videos due to its large camera sensor, every frame will be quite natural and with more details..
5800xm_user, 15 May 2010Nobody's forcing you get the N8. Get the SE or something so you could waste your money. agree with you. the tech is inside, not outside. am i right? heheheh...
GVS, 15 May 2010SE vivaz has better advantages in terms of video recording since it has continuous auto focus.... moreDude,continuous auto-focus is just a feature..Still Video Quality would be better in N8 coz of the bigger sensor and light sensitivity.
Auto-focus doesn't do any good at low-light conditions..haha

The Nokia N8 has a CPU AND a GPU far better than any of the phones in the market. Rivals that of the 1GHz Snapdragon because the CPU itself powers graphics and has no GPU to support it. THAT IS NOT GOOD.
THAT'S WHY THEY (samsung,htc,etc) NEED A 1GHZ PROCESSOR 'CAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE A GPU!!!

Anonymous, 15 May 2010C6:CPU of 436MHz and TFT resistive touchscreen,...... What is going on? Is Nokia Working in ye... moreWow seriously you fanboys are thick!
SYMBIAN^3 DOES NOT NEED A HIGH PROCESSOR TO FUNCTION PROPERLY!!!
And its screen is a 3.5" OLED capacitive, scratch resistant, with 16 million colors.
SE vivaz has better advantages in terms of video recording since it has continuous auto focus.It would have been better if N8 also has continuous auto focus in video recording
its really funny for people believing ram is what takes the performance. SEE how N900 performs at 256mb ram.. it even competes the 1ghz phones..its just 600mhz peps.. but arm11 can only attain 1ghz clock speed while a8 of n900 can boost to above 1ghz.. but who needs that speed for mobile phones,unless you wanna play PS emulators..
n8 will have a function to turn off by pressing the power button for 6-8 seconds overriding any freeze.. why would a manufacturer lock the battery without thinking bout this..but this is not available on current nokia phones..correct me..
grittfrenz, 15 May 2010The phone is absolutely fantastic but the release date
is too late why? because its too long... morewell, it's not out in the market yet cause this phone is using the new Symbian^3. Nokia still seems to be doing some adjustment to this new OS, so that it'll go out properly.
well, in my opinion, this phone is like a restarting point for nokia, and after this one, many good phone maybe will come up. So they better do this one right. Maybe now they're still left behind, but eventually I think Nokia will catch up
KID, 15 May 2010mate, look at the SPEC carefully....
the processor maybe the same like in 5800 (ARM 11) but i... moreThe phone is absolutely fantastic but the release date
is too late why? because its too long the time table it would generally lose your customer if you had stocks you should quickly put to the market in order to maintain customers need.
Anonymous, 15 May 2010C6:CPU of 436MHz and TFT resistive touchscreen,...... What is going on? Is Nokia Working in ye... moremate, look at the SPEC carefully....
the processor maybe the same like in 5800 (ARM 11) but in N8, it has a higher clock speed, and I believe that probably nokia will boost it even more in the upcoming firmware (just like 5800). Maybe it'll go up to 750? who knows??
and besides, 5800 looks like nothing compared to this phone, N8 has a powerful graphic accelerator (if what they say about it using broadcom is true, even if it's not, it still has a 3D GRAPHIC ACCELERATOR), that's one hell of a gap between N8 and 5800...
the screen's also bigger (even though it has the same res), and even more, it use AMOLED, while 5800 still uses TFT....
the battery is not an Li-Ion, but Li-po, and it supposedly stronger that Li-Ion, that's why it only has a capacity of 1200
the build, while 5800 uses plastic all over, this N8 uses aluminium, and people who already got their hands on those prototype unit said that the buils quality is good...
nevertheless, 5800 is a good phone, maybe it's suck at first, but along with the firmware upgrade, it gets better and better, and I think it's a great phone (amongst the other phone within the same price range of course) And now I have the latest firmware, it's even more better....
for people who hate 5800, they just probably dont know the proper way of using it, or overestimated it, and thus they dread it. As for me, I'm having fun with my 5800, but I've got my eye on N8 also, just wait till it launched, and then wait a little more to see how this N8 in the real world, if it's any good, then I will definitely gonna buy it
