After updating to Belle, before you download any application from Nokia store, check its compatibility with Belle by reading down the developer's brief overview. This precaution wil keep your Belle N8 bug-free & smooth-running like mine!!! Avoid untrusted third party apps totally!!!

Thanks a lot Charles/@martin042068. Been very helpful.
Dear Friends.... I am using this phone for the last couple of days. An excellent phone. Camera is simply awesome. Better UI. Battery exhausts in 3G use, power saver option gives a bit relief.

On the adding or removing screens, tap the three bars in the lower left on any of your home screens. It will give you the option to add or delete. On the default main screen with the clock you can't delete that one by the way. Belle defaults to four I believe and goes up to six.
As far as the battery monitor app, when you open it the first screen shows you your current battery percent of charge to the right, and a list of "typical uses" for the phone and the estimated time you'd have for each of those uses. For example the first one is "Average Use" gives you overall followed by "Call(3G)" and the estimated time you could use for phone.
The next tab at the top middle (right of estimates) is "statistics". This shows you your actual usage and your "top energy consumers". By default is shows today, but you can choose "daily" or "past week". On the bottom of this screen is shows you "background" usage which will include your data connections, mail autosync, and widgets as one lump.
The last tab at the top is "power save" and gives you options to manage more settings like "Display Brightness" and "Display light timeout" There is a "Power Saving Mode" On/Off at the top that puts your phone in 2G (GSM) mode only and automatically reduces your display brightness too.
Hope this helps.

BUT BUT....the flv player is gone...The .flv files can't be played anymore. What a bad luck with this belle update. Now i feel, I shouldn'd have hurried up for the new features. The Belle update killed my N8's best thing, i.e. the FLASH PLAYER... :(

I downloaded the App and it works.
However, its more complicated than I thought. I'm not sure of what I'm looking at. I tried reading the instructions but still no understanding of what I'm looking at on the 3 screens. (Maybe too dumb to get it...lol)
Under Estimates we have Average Usage and then a list of applications , majority of which are not in use.
In short can you break down to me how this thing is supposed to work?
Thanks a lot.
Here is new Application of the screen lock to your N8 .. It is great if anyone wants try it through this link..

Even picture named also new structure. Although named as date but not similar. Newly structure is 2012-02-09-001.jpg for example. But in Anna was 26052011622 for example.
All those files stored in E:\DCIM\100NOKIA\
Has anyone also experiencing the same?
Hey guys ...after regarding I want to share something with you.
After updating to the Amazing belle I noticed that the Still camera comes better but the video even its very good by adding micro shooting and more frames to it; but still less than the Symbian 3 video recording am I right by the way most of recording I did was in indoor mode or cloudy situations to be honest with You.
please any one can answer me?...sorry for my bad English

Wud you giv me any pros ... moredon't be mis-informed, those are trolls and have not experienced Nokia belle, its awesome man, a whole different experience and fast. instead of shortcuts clattering the screen, its now different and easy to arrange yourself with six home-screens to choose n organize, like photos and videos, web and browsers, favorite contacts, games, private content, whichever way you choose. and for data usage it provides a pull down menu like a status bar where you can kill the data connection and save yourself on data usage. its awesome, just go on and upgrade, your fone is as good as new
