Some of the features like FM transmitter and Camera are great and once you get addicted. N8 UI will improve and compete with rivals over aperiod of time. Nokia durability and quality is awasome.

im excited and almost cant wait to know what the recently NokiaSoft partnership and nokia's other announcements recently would translate in the coming months and years:
1) whether symbian will ultimately be abandoned bcoz nobody cares about it anymore or;
2) symbian will still have a big smartphone market share bcoz majority in the world keeps on buying symbian phones.
im really concerned about symbian's and meego's future. IMPO, symbian's utilitarian ways and raw power (in terms of OS functionality) are way more advanced than any other smartphone OS, AFAIK. for me, current symbian UI does the job but it "does" the job without fancy animations and really lacks great UX. it direly needs the overhauled UI shown from a press event in China by Jo Harlow recently quickly.
if only "execution" = memory (just like in computers), i will buy the best one available and install it to "Nokia" without thinking twice.
after reading and digesting tremendous comments, sentiments, and analyses, i've realized that Elop might be doing these also for the guys over at Espoo to make them more competitive to invite "innovation" and drive passion among them. in other words, maybe Elop's proposal to join WP and its ecosystem to the BODs plainly means giving fellas in their main head quarters competition to alert them - "wake up from your aging and fungal laurels", "we know you've done many improvements and optimization on symbian OS, but why the UI and UX are almost the same and seemed unable to mingle with fast paced mobile industry, especially with touch phones?!") , now, feb 11, 2011 is a big history. i think elop and any BOD with him have chosen the best option for nokia in the interim.
my last paragraph could only also mean that im not ready to let go of symbian =( do i really need to shake hands with the green fella?! from a pure symbian loyalist and fan, i feel that android will be the best logical move for me, accounting flexibility and out of the box functionality of my favorite OS.
as the saying goes, three heads are better than one. though headlines and official news from nokia states long term alliance with microsoft, i simply don't buy it. i see the big picture as - its like opening 3 quick service restaurants from 3 different franchisors. Normally, from a franchisee's perspective, after a period of operation, the franchisee is most likely to maintain the one with the fastest ROI, biggest sales, least expensive to maintain or in other words most profitable model. if the franchisee has enough funds and the two other restos are fairly doing good, he/she could maintain 3 at the same time. i wonder where symbian falls in the next months and years... i hope nokia have enough funds!
nevertheless, i wish nokia the best and i hope they do succeed getting a big chunk in US! engadget will surely love you even more by then.
long live symbian! (and qT)

i think th n8 is a great materpiece from nokia.but my problems is with the battery is realatively not too good like the other nokia phones
Nokia fones are good. But only one factor that is holding me back on buying nokia fone. It's th LCD. Idk why but, every time i use this fone, i feel so dizzy because of the lcd display. almost all of nokia colored phones. but i like nokia phones
Chaitanyass, 26 Feb 2011Is N8 ok, coz i m hinking 2 buy it, n in same colour BLUE does it look good. i m quite confus... moreN8 is the best among them all! (among all Nokia models) E7 has no micro sd card slot, bigger, & 8MP camera not Carl Zeiss lens.
The perfect phone is the phone that makes the owner satisfied & happy everyday. If N8 did those things to you then N8 is the perfect phone for you. If SGS did the same things to you then SGS is the perfect phone for you. Otherwise you have no contentment at all. For me N8 as of now is the perfect phone for my everyday use. So addictive, comfortable size & shape, solid, compact, heavy duty, spare parts & accessories anywhere everywhere, fashionable, branded, functional, flexible, friendly, trendy, not boring. I cant wait for the next updates.
i own this brilliant phone.i came for reviews here in gsmarena before buying this phone and finally decided to buy it.ppl say the UI is a mess but it works just good enough for an average user like me.the camera quality is ofcourse the best.to those who say the app store is trash ,well there arent as many as the "200000" or so apps in the apple app store but facing the reality are we really going to use that much apps in our phone?the apps which are there in app store are also there here which we use on a day to day basis.numbers dont count.usability does.and the build is very sturdy as i dropped it accidentally from chest height and nothin happened coz of the tough build and my cover and it didnt even rebbot.worked just as always.so to those apple and droid fanboys out there,ur phones are also equally good butto anyone who wants to buy this phone go ahead and buy it and you wont regret it.
