I already use leaked Belle on my N8 (the 0607 one, didn't want to change to 0609 yet cause i don't find any reason to use that version since all already smooth n great, and i'm too lazy reinstaling my apps n reg to ovi again). That is why i don't compare the UI in my both device since theyre both smooth (eventhough Galaxy S has the upper specs).
U have to admit that android OS is good for smartphones cause lots of dev makes apps to support it, as i said before i cant even find a good apps for playing all vids format for my N8, also theres bible app (in indo languange) that i use often, not to mention app to view .dwg (CAD files).
All of these i can't get on Symbian i get from android, well as always, nokia made a phone that user-friendly enough for me to use and be proud of it, but it seems not enough.
Cause its hard for me to be a fan boy, and think that 1 device is legend etc etc, n not experiencing the goods of both.
One thing i wont buy now is Win 7.5 Phones, with all those restriction on hardware n to much depend on Zune is killing all the fun u can get on a gadget. Its too bad Nokia wont making any phones based on Meego, cause i think its a promising OS.

Dear brother Leon,
Thank you very much for your detailed answer... It seems you're still using Symbian Anna... Aren't you..? If you just try Belle in your N8, then you'll love it more... I assure you..
But, it has a similar look of android too.. (I don't know why nokia implemented it that way..) Specially the Notification bar (you can roll in and out to the screen like android) and so many home screens (in the Custom firmware I'm using, I can add as many as I want... Even 10 nos...) However folder/menu structure is still the same so you will not loose the faith in Symbian.. (I love this tree like menu structure of Symbian.. You can create folders and organize your menu as you wish unlike Android..)
I was thinking of buying SGS II someday but postphoning that idea as I am still not convinced whether it's really worth it despite of the hardware...
Anyways, I'll surely stick with my belle N8 for some more quality time and move when time comes.. (Most probably to N8's successor... Since I love the camera of this beauty... OMG.. How can I go to another mobile phone ever....? I tested Apple iphone 4 camera quality with my N8 and it was horrible...! I don't have to say it Do I...?)
Nuwan, 31 Dec 2011 Dear friends, I'm a very happy owner of an N8... (Delight Belle V 3.8 installed and doing... morehey mate i already used an entry level android phone with almost the same specs of n8 600mhz and 486mb ram droid phone..

I'm a very happy owner of an N8... (Delight Belle V 3.8 installed and doing... moreI'm using N8 and Galaxy S (sym n droid), well both have their own good n bad, since i'm having difficulties finding a good apps for playing my vids for my N8 (the one that play all file types inc. avi), i transfered all my vids n pict to my Galaxy, even the one i made using my N8 (since Galaxy has good contrast n brightness also cause of Super Amoled).
But my primary sim card is on N8, since i love making calls, send text, email, whatsapp, making photos n video with it (cause the design n material feels good in my hand, not to mention good signal yay ^^, sometimes i wonder if its the reason the batt could stand long enough). And it fits perfectly in my jeans, i doubt phone with 4" display will lolz.
Also remember Android is an OS, it comes in many forms(could be pretty or fugly), so the main important things is the product it support, not the OS itself, one thing that makes me still using my Galaxy is that has lots of apps that helps me n entertain me also that great S amoled display.
Sorry for my bad english, regards
Hello N8 users. Happy new year to you ALL!
Pls can anyone tell me where to get a good bible software for my N8.
Thanks in advance.
drlloyd11, 31 Dec 2011Take it back. There are no apps for it and it is unsupported by Nokia now. Dear .. If you dont own any Nokia device.. then dont worry...
I'm a very happy owner of an N8... (Delight Belle V 3.8 installed and doing just fine.)
Just wondering in which areas Android OS could be way better than Symbian Belle.. Since I've never used an Android device, I just want an unbiased comparison between the two..
I've heard Android is not a powerful OS since it's working like a virtual machine on a Linux kernal that's why it requires more power in certain works where Symbian or Meego does very easily with less power.. Please give me more details about that too..
By the way, I have watched so many videos about Powerful SGS II in youtube and so far I am not that convinced it's Way better than Belle... I mean just to be honest, I sometimes wonder 'where's this difference between dual core, 1 GB Ram SGS II and just 680 MHz, 256 MB ram simple N8, because I feel both are very sleek and operating just fine..
Just for the record... In N8, Symbian developers have gone too deep to Modding and preparing Custom ROMs where Android developers like XDA people are not even close... IMHO..! Please correct me as I know very little about XDA and Android..
From the obvious facts, very popular Symbian Developer sites (Eg: dailymobile forum which also has an Android section too..) have much more developer support than XDA site.. Users, visitor much higher in number.. You can visit both sites and check by yourselves.
Symbian 3 modding section in Dailymobile forum exceed 3,00,000 posts already.. and Android section only has 20,000 posts.. OK... See What XDA site has... XDA developers site most popular phone SGS II has only 90,000 posts for custom ROMs etc...!
Above are facts.. Please explain them to me.. Why still people are repeating that Android best android best.. Bla bla..
Please tell me, in which areas android is better than Symbian Belle..
Take it back. There are no apps for it and it is unsupported by Nokia now.
when does nokia n8 software update begin in the year of 2012
I bought the Nokia N8 and within an hour of switching it on it started freezing every few hours. Rebooted it several times, updated it but it still remained the same. I endud up getting a refund. Trust me buy something else, I was always a Nokia person and still am just don't buy the N8.
