Simple but tough, I still use this phone today since 2012 no plans to replace it
i dont think i will meet such a fantastic phone like n8,it is the best on everything,i realy love it,very strong
Liked it for a year after purchase but suddenly realised that it display has problems with color apeared brown spots and system was laggy and were lack of apps. Only thing that good is camera nothing more its laggy keyboard is clumsy app crashes no new apps by that time really i would better buy iphone 4 wich was at least faster in interaction and same price. By 2017 no longer available nokia services at all so all purchases are gone. At all it helped me once when my phone had problems with modem to communicate but now it has broken sim contacts and no idea when to fix it
mischa, sorry to hear the condition of your n8. i've been using mine for 6 years and every covers are right in their place, though i must admit some have shown sign of weakness. but phone is functioning almost flawlessly. i will keep using this as my main phone as long as it's still supported by whatsapp. until then (by mid 2017) lots of new nokia with android will be easy to buy. cheers...
My almost 6 year old Nokia N8 is now dying. Battery lasts only for 30 minutes. All flaps covering the microSD card slot, SIM slot and HDMI are detached. Screen has burn in. I need a new phone. Please I've been stuck with this phone for almost 6 years now. I have no money to buy a new phone. Can anyone give me a brand new phone? An iPhone 7 or 6s, or a Sony Xperia Z5 will do. Thanks.
let it go, 29 Dec 2016Do you have any connectivity problem with intex aqua fish ? I mean my phone goes suddenly offl... moreNo, I am not facing the issue on Intex Aqua Fish that you are having. Did you try factory reset? My software version is 2.0.4 Fiskarsinjoki. In 2.0.2 Aurajoki update, I wasn't able to use data on Jio 4G network but after update to Fiskarsinjoki data works fine in Jio 4G. Post your issue on together.jolla.com site, maybe somebody would be able to figure out the issue you're facing. Also note, that Intex Aqua Fish is a rebranded Jolla C so search for Jolla C in GSMArena, that is the right forum.
Do you have any connectivity problem with intex aqua fish ? I mean my phone goes suddenly offline, though it shows signals. But then i can't call somebody or can't use internet. I have to restart the phone so that it can be used. Any solution you know. Due to this problem, i have to buy new phone.
I've been using this phone since 2014. A brilliant phone but now its camera has gone nuts, and whatsapp is going to be discontinued.
nokia users outhere my n8 sensor seems not tobe working correctly pls any suggestion.

I had two Nokia N8 for 2 years. First one was a Dark Grey variant, its touchscreen broke and after replacing it, the touchscreen started to behave weirdly only if using Internet. Sold it. Bought a Nokia N8 Bronze Edition, was working fine but had to sell it because of the internet experience. Otherwise solid phone. Superb build quality, feels like it is built like a tank and good to hold especially due to the cold anodized aluminum. Sound quality was like amplifier, loud and crystal clear. Display, being AMOLED was vibrant and had great contrast, simply beautiful to look at. Camera was really, really great. It had mechanical shutter, huge sensor, Xenon flash at that time it was launched. So it was ahead of its time. Still the camera quality is really good and better than cheap budget droids. OS was Symbian Belle, the last official update for Nokia N8. It had themes support before Android got it. I really cherished the default black theme, was perfect for the AMOLED display. Symbian was smooth, easy to use and very resource efficient OS, despite having very low specs, it was able to run almost everything smoothly and didn't drain the battery at the rate Androids do. Nokia N8 had a HDMI port and FM transmitter feature, these things aren't found in smartphones these days. I could play songs on my N8 while calling, so the other person on the call can listen to the songs, haven't found this feature in any of the Android phones. Nokia was synonymous with quality. Nokia N8 had a non removable battery but this wasn't the case actually, you can easily replace the battery on the Nokia N8. I always prefer removable battery because lithium ion batteries over time run out of juice so if you use a phone heavily for long-term, you'll eventually notice that the battery has started to give very poor backup or swollen and this is why removable batteries are better in my opinion because they are easy to replace. Currently using a Sailfish OS device since it's made by ex Nokians. I heard Nokia is returning to the market so I hope they get their game right this time. Microsoft really screwed Nokia.
Aadrian , 07 Dec 2016Is it easy to replace?There's a few tricky parts the first time you're doing it. The screws on the sides of the phone are going into little plastic bits inside the phone which aren't attached to the phone itself, so if you unscrew the screws too much the bits fall out and it's a hassle to put them back where they should be. And it takes a minute to figure out how to unclip the plastic part holding the battery, then you just pull or shake it out. Once you know how it goes it's easy, you can replace the battery in a minute.
You should go to FILES press on F: Memory Card till it displays "Remove Memory Card" then press it to remove memory card. Replace with new Micro SD . Then go again to files press F: memory till it displays Format and format it on the phone itself.
Remove memory Card
I did the above to change my MSD to 16GBSandisk Ultra Class 10.
Then Removed the Micro SD from N8 and inserted to my laptop to download all the programs in my old Micro SD.
Reinstalled back to N8 and no issues but very much faster images and video, songs, music.
Try it out.
When I bought my N8 in 2010 , I purchased a set of tools thru E-Bay for it. You need the Spline key to remove the bottom cover before removing the battery. You can see Youtube video on Battery removal/replacement. Its easy. Better to buy High Capacity battery - I replaced it with 2830mAh Gold battery for prolonged use.
Majhinboo, 27 Nov 2016Is there any downloads of its program? wish someone could help.Go to Nokia suite with phone connected to your computer and search on Nokia suite screen for updates.
