Suhanoo, 14 Feb 2012Very good decision, Ray. I wish I would at least keep one of my N8 in Anna. Right now I'm supe... moreI also keep another my 2 N8s with Anna while 1 only with Belle. Wait for update or service pack release to fix some issues then only the other 2 will join Belle.
[deleted post]Hey thar.
There have been complaints of camera quality since the belle update from several user's on several forums, especially and not only limited to low light conditions, also when users use the 'automatic' function to take pics they have noticed an increase in grain in darker areas of their pics.
I think you could have replied to PEK in a much better way rather than seeming to 'force' your belief that nokia belle update is the best and that's that opinion.
Help a man who knows a little rather than scolding him since you know more. Remember most users come here for answers not insults.

[deleted post]Try 1 to 1 shooting between N8 Anna & N8 Belle at same time. Then you'll see what I mean. It's not to condemn the camera quality, but that's what I noticed after update. I bought 3 N8s since launched and very familiar with this set because I love this set. so after update Belle I did thorough check between Anna & Belle to see what differences... and the first thing I checked was camera..
Anyway it just my opinion and open for everyone to share theirs...
guys.....hold still.....those who f Nokia N8 gud news..... Nokia 808 is coming soon....
and those who wanna buy N8 please wait for Nokia 808 the price difference will not be muc just add a few bucks n be d best!

martin042068, 14 Feb 2012 I too experienced an increase in battery consumption after upgrading to Legit Belle. I&quo... moreOne thing that i think is increasing battery consumption is the lock screen that does not go off. And then there is the online widgets... I havent found the 'turn widgets offline' setting yet so that may also be a downer for the battery. The camera / photo quality has decreased but i think that may be due to BELLE processing the images 'faster'.
Also while browsing in landscape mode, the icons on the bottom reduces the effective space a lot which is a pain as it requires scrolling a lot..
yeah..I too have notices camera on belle has detoriated than on Anna but no one else seems to have noticed it.May be the camera is working fine on them.In response of one such post I got the comment that I dont know how to use the camera..Dont know wether it is an universal prb.
Drew/ @Drew, 14 Feb 2012Hello Ray/ @Ray,
Hope all is well. First I have a comment and then a question. You have bee... more I too experienced an increase in battery consumption after upgrading to Legit Belle. I"m a heavy daily user, to be sure.
I believe this is NOT a bug or bad software. By default, Belle is running more widgets and accessing data more that Anna so it's gonna consume more power. Ironically, it's reminds me more of my HTC Droid phone that needs charging at least twice a day. Simply, put, if you want more widgets, screens, and updating and polling, and so forth it's gonna cost you more battery life.
I got my battery usage back in line by reducing the number of widgets running, and deleting a home screen I didn't need. Additionally, I set my mail to sync less periodically and only during the day. I've heard that using the Wifi on/off is a major battery drainer as it makes your phone constantly scan if it's on! This solved all my probs and my battery life is now very good.
As far as checking your battery I use the Battery Monitor application from the Nokia store. It will even tell you what apps are consuming the most power. You will notice that by default, your background usage is very high on Belle by default hence the widgets and so forth. Hope this helps.
Hello Ray/ @Ray,
Hope all is well. First I have a comment and then a question. You have been brilliant!!! I really hope you could help. Plus you were right, ever since upgrading to Belle I don't have the "maximum connections in use" issue anymore.
Since upgrading to Belle my battery life has dropped massively. I have to charge it at least twice a day whereas prior to Belle i.e. Anna; charging once took me through the whole day.
My N8 with Anna, by pressing on the battery icon you could tell how much battery power you had left (25%, 50%...etc) Is there anyway I can do that with Belle? With the rate a which my Battery dies I really need to be able to monitor my power usage.
Thanks A Billion Ray!!!
Take Care Amigo.
Belle! Aah what a fine lookin' lass you are. But alas untill your issues are resolved i'll be going back to ANNA 25.7
I believe camera with Belle is not good as with Anna. Wonder why???? Has anyone notice about that...
One other thing I miss in Belle in compared to Anna. Remember, Anna had this Notification widget? Suppose someone called me & I missed it. When I notice it, it's too late (like late in the night) & deciding that I will call that person later, I could keep the notification active to remind me in the morning (when I would look at my phone I would still see the missed call & would call the number). But in Belle, I don't have that option. Again, the messages & missed calls don't come to the notification area. Then what is the use of notification area? See Android's notification area for the example, it gives you all the notifications you want to see. In my opinion, the notification area is not complete, it is full of bugs.
