> In reply to faizan @ 2014-08-08 11:29 from uRBZ - click to readBrother, N8's camera is still unbeatable & untouched in image & video quality, even by recent top androids are behind it. I compared the pics of N8 with the pics of Samsung galaxy S4, Sony xperia Z1, HTC One, & to every1's surprise, N8's pics were way ahead in detail, clear & sharpness & colour reproduction compared to other competitors. I felt so proud at that moment. So, trust blindly in camera as its the product of king in camera phones manufacturer, Nokia. But, if u are planning to buy N8 just now, i would not recommend you to go for it, as its a 4 years old phone & Nokia has stopped giving software support to this operating system, symbian. Many latest apps like instagram, line, bbm, viber- calling & skype-video calling are not compatible & will never come. Skype is present with messaging & calling features, but today morning i received a mail from skype, that they are retiring their services from symbian & skype would no longer work on symbian after few weeks. So, if your prime requirement is camera & budget is not an issue, then u can go for lumia 1020 (best cameraphone till now with 41 megapixel sensor), lumia 1520 or for latest lumia flagship, wait for lumia 930 which has 20 megapixel pure-view sensor.

I've read about that issue a lot of times, corresponded about it with a Nokia C7 owner too, and there's not much to do except change it, or the whole phone body. :-(

Thank you very much, but I do not have a matt guard or any other cover on my screen. It is a really nice phone. Would really like to get this problem fixed.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-08-06 13:18 from rvSM - click to readIt must be happening because of installation of an app. Which was the latest app u downloaded after which this started happening ? The same happened to me when i installed f-secure & other time when i installed kaspersky antivirus. Frankly, N8 doesnt need any anti virus, so if u have installed any anti virus apps, then uninstall them. & if u cant delete such app directly from the phone, then connect it with the pc & delete the culprit apps. Hope this would resolve your issue.

hi Brother, i really felt good reading that u started using this phone just now, even after 4 years of Its launch. But according to me, its still the best. & about ur issues of screen getting black, i think you may have placed a matt screen protector on the screen & even covering the proximity sensor. Matt cover generally covers the sensor on proximity & stops the illumination of screen while the incoming or outgoing call. So, for this, use a glossy screen protector or cut the appropriate portion of matt guard. Hope this has helped you.

Thanks for nothing

It's the best Symbian smartphone ever, I mean ever, however, in my opinion, Nokia N8 sports a cooler design than the Nokia 808 but the last Symbian king is a beast. Trust me, you won't regret it.
