wreck, 19 Apr 2011i havent bought either vivaz or n8.
the thing is i need the best camera without misssing feat... moreDear wreck,
Your choice is obvious man..! Nokia N8 is the way to go if you're looking for the camera.. Not the mega pixel count, I mean the features.. (Don't fool yourself by software features like smile detection and face detection. They're only eye candy...)
If you want more clear details,
N8 Vs Vivaz (Camera wise)
1) N8 has the bigger sensor (Biggest for a mobile phone EVER)
2) N8 has wide angel lens but vivaz doesn't
3) N8 has Xenon flash which is great for photo shooting while Vivaz has only LED which usually sucks
4) N8 has ND filter which is great for exposure controlling while Vivaz has none
5) N8 has more mega pixels (12 MP vs 8 MP)
6) N8 can take uncompressed photos (with file size over 10 MB) with a support of a 'mod' (I don't think Vivaz can do that)
7) N8 can record HD videos up to 30 fps (again with a support of a 'mod') but Vivaz only supports 24 fps
8) N8 supports for great software like 'Camera Pro' and it can grab so many things out of N8's camera because it has great hardware. (But if you install the same in Vivaz you wouldn't get that much because Vivaz hardware is not that good as N8's. Simple as that.)
9) ISO sensitivity of N8 is larger and it's specially capable of taking low light photos. (But Vivaz Sucks there.)
10) N8 and Vivaz both have followings
* Auto Focus
* Face detection (Silly - not a hardware feature)
* Continuous auto focus (for N8 you have to install a 'mod' to activate this)
* Geo tagging
* HD Video recording
Now, anyone can see, which camera has better features...!
(Vivaz has touch focus, video light & smile detection which are not available in N8. So you call them as the features compared to the greatest camera giant in mobile phone history...?) Come on mate... Don't be so blind....!
I don't know why anyone is even trying to compare Satio or Vivaz with this giant N8... It's so silly..
Mauritango, 19 Apr 2011Thanks Ray!
Good to know, it's been a month or so since pr1.2 is out, so I was kind of worrie... more Your welcome. I still haven't got PR 1.2 myself, and I'm in the UK. Since Opera released version 11 of their mobile browser, practically most people have abandoned the native browser. However, the new native browser due to arrive with Anna is a massive improvement on the current one, but still no Flash 10 though.
SPB do produce some excellent software too. I'm using SPB weather, which is very nice indeed.
All the best.

You may like to consider the Sony Ericsson XPERIA ARC.
It's got all the features in it's camera that you want, plus a lot of other brilliant features. Have a look at the following web site.
All the best.
Ray Hipkiss, 18 Apr 2011Hi Mauritango.
No trouble at all. I've just checked the release schedule for you and your ... moreThanks Ray!
Good to know, it's been a month or so since pr1.2 is out, so I was kind of worried.
The update that I'm interested about of course is symbian Anna, I know it will take some time to be available. Actually what I'm looking forward is the portrait qwerty keyboard, as I text a lot.
Right now I'm using Spb Shell (I believe Nokia should team up with them or reach some kind of businees agreement), and Opera as my main web browser, n8 + spb shell + Opera is a killer combo.
Thanks again, take care

HBK00, 19 Apr 2011Hi guys,i wanted to know,whether N8 hangs a lot?? if so,any solution? also want to know,whethe... moreAny mobile phone will hang if you open many applications at the same time, so if you like N8 buy N8, if you like Sumsung galaxy buy SG or if you like iphone buy iphone laaa.
pick the most feature you need at that mobile phone.
Hi guys,i wanted to know,whether N8 hangs a lot?? if so,any solution? also want to know,whether all N8's have the purple tint issue? when can we expect 'defect free' phones? thank you
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2011Why I cannot open Ovi Store for already 2 weeks? Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks! =)friend i was having the same problem.. I tried everything, even reinstalling the software, but of no use.. I took it to nokia care, even they were not able to do anything.. It was then replaced by a new n8. You should take your mobile to nokia care..
aj2010, 17 Apr 2011yeah, ur absolutely on spot! thing is that people wright thigs here to annoy us, it not const... morei really want to avail the handset nokia n8..but first i just want to check first for the features of this unit.
Nuwan, 19 Apr 2011Dear brother, Who ever is willing to compare N8 with Vivaz, I think it's more or less stupi... moreHe's merely a hardcore fans with no knowledge of technology,dat's why he's so deep drowned in late technology of Sony Ericsson,he has never seen ovi maps 3.07,real 12mp camera packed with large sensor and wide angle lens, I have both Satio and N8,N8 camera do far better than Satio which has lacks of support by company. Sony is good,but ericsson is juz sucky. Vivaz also sucky with d headphone at d side @_@ what d hell is wrong with d designer?
Who ever is willing to compare N8 with Vivaz, I think it's more or less stupid.
The biggest reason is the camera. N8's camera is way better than any other camera phone in the market and it's not particularly because of no of mega pixels.. For god's sake grow up people.. N8's camera is great not due to it's mega pixel count.. Just google it if you don't have the camera.. Else just go outside and shoot. You'll see the difference.. It has the biggest sensor in a mobile phone camera ever. So the photos are sharper, smoother and detailed like never before.
I don't know why the hell some one is comparing ordinary Vivaz camera with N8's camera..
Let's say I have got only 3 MP for my N8.. Then also I will select N8's camera Only due to its fantastic sensor size. Mega pixel count is nothing but bigger size when it comes to the photography. The sensor size and exposure control abilities of the camera matters the most for 'quality' of photography and ask some professional and he'll say about N8.
I'm not going to say any other things which are good in N8. I only said if anyone is going to compare damn iphones, vivaz, satio or any sh.t with N8, he's so lame and don't know anything about photography.
Cheers N8 owners...
PS: I feel sorry for those who're using N8 but haven't used their great camera potential.. For me, i can live without N8 but not without its camera.
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2011Vivaz my friend has NO SECONDARY CAMERA = NO VIDEO CALLS, only 5 MP. camera compared to 12 MP ... moreN8 got 12mp camera ND filter, geo-tagging, face detection,autofocus, Xenon flash
but vivaz has 8mp camera with video light,Led flash,continous autofocus,touch focus,face and smile detection
just check that n8 doesn't got smile detection,video light,continous autofocus,touch focus......besides the gsmarena review itself says camera interface is outdated.
pixel wise and optical focus n8 got the lead,but i think vivaz's camera got more features.....
by the way i haven't bought both i'm still deciding.what i'm looking for is a nice camera phone at the possible lowest rate.
its a good phone.i read some reviews about purple screen before i bought mine and found out theyr were all true.... if it freezes up on u just do a factory reset and u wont have that problem anymore...at least i dont.
