I keep reading complaints how some games run more smoothly on n8/c7 group than the newer nokia 70x group. Is this true and is it limited to games or includes non games softwares as well?
MdN, 05 Oct 2013I'm just "up and running" to keep my mind away from gloomy thoughts and some hard wo... moreSee how that Nokia Developer Team was proudly flaunting Asha and WP phones with nary a bone thrown at Symbian and MeeGo? Well I would just love to tell them where I think they should go. I can only describe them as sadistic, brutal and mercenary. I will never buy a WP phone. I’ve washed my hands off them and their shabby treatment. Meanwhile, I’m not bothering about Jan 2014 because I probably have enough on and for my N8 to keep me going till it dies. What the eye does not see, the heart does not grieve for = what they don’t release, I won’t miss.
All my app downloads are still on my computer waiting for the right time to be installed on my N8. Everything is on hold until…. Yeah, I’m reading up on procedure, sometimes - on and on I go. I may yet be saved from doing the upgrade myself. I may get someone to do it for me. Hey, I had downloaded the UC browser on to my PC just for so, but I’m not sure there is value in having three browsers on one phone
Oh come on, stop being so gloomy. So why would you be interested in a dummy like that anyway! No offence meant - and maybe you should do a proper inventory of your taste :-)! Well, phew! You’ve been saved by the bell :-). So just thank your lucky stars and stop thinking so negatively, ok. Just think of it this way - everybody is exactly how and where they are meant to be. Sometimes it is better to just live and let live rather than complicate matters. Good policy, that. Try it, it works :-). Keep well.
Nice phone, good build quality, camera is outstanding. Using this device for more than one year. Never had any critical issue apart from a little system hang (256 MB RAM) here and there while using multiple apps. Even though restricted from so many apps considering android and IOS apps. Guys who all are looking for a good camera, video and sound quality device..i suggest this one.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2013u noticed guys? Everything on ovi is becoming so expensive ,zene music player was for 5rs now ... moreThey say their profits are down since July and they raised the prices to keep earning money. I'm not sure this is the right way.

Such a great device to get opinions near 47,000. I love this phone
Rad-K, 07 Oct 2013Hey MdN and Carol, i did some hard reset and format to my n8 and now i realize sth is missing ... moreHey, i think i already told you what is the fix for your problem, or? I don't remember if it was you or somebody else. If you did a hardformat (the 3 button method), then you can full recover your system only by flashing. The drivers you are talking about have nothing to do with the system. They are only for connection, synchronizing data between your pc and your device, gives the possibility to read, view or modify your phone data through you PC. So, after the things you told us, what happened to your device is a bit funny. Normally there is no way your phone downgrades from belle refresh to Symbian belle. Very strange stuff. Also, this problem has something to do with your product code, you can change that to, but that's another long story. So, you need to decide firs what you want to do:)
I'm looking for an app.for manual search network operator (service provider)with live widget. anyone know abt the app like that ?
Hey MdN and Carol, i did some hard reset and format to my n8 and now i realize sth is missing there, like drivers that automatically install when newly connect to a pc, etc. Do you think i may find these again? My n8 got back to belle first version from belle refresh, and is not finding the 'refresh' anymore, and i think it's due to lack of those files.

Carol, 05 Oct 2013Hey, sorry, they have no clue either...If you come across any solution, tell me.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2013Might just limit myself to a feature phone (nokia 515) + tablet/hybrid combo (google nexus/mic... moreI'm thinking similar. A feature phone plus a "real" camera, and maybe a tablet for surfing at home. I saved for the N8 and got it because I trusted Nokia (no more) for the updates, but I don't trust Google, Apple or Microsoft and can't afford an Android flagship just to get a camera as good as N8 and a bunch of things I'll probably try once and never use again. I even hesitated in getting a smartphone like N8 because I know myself, if I get one I'll have to test every app, set all the features and settings to my preferences, put every icon where I want it to be, waste time on cleaning, improving, updating, surfing the internet, checking my accounts when taking a break outdoors instead of looking around, and not having a life. :-) Only lately I stopped improving it and just keep on normally using it, only updating apps when there's an update available. Things are way more relaxed with a feature phone.
I had an Xperia Z1 in my hands today, it just leaves me cold. Nothing exciting. It's just a phone...
MdN, 04 Oct 2013Thanks for „support until 2016” Nokia. Liars. :-(Might just limit myself to a feature phone (nokia 515) + tablet/hybrid combo (google nexus/microsoft surface, whoever is less evil) in the future. Getting sick of smartphones. And this US-centric tech landscape.
S SUDHAKAR, 26 Sep 2013Can you ask your friends and reply here?. Please?.Hey, sorry, they have no clue either...
Anna, 04 Oct 2013So happy to see you up and running again! Seems like you are much better now. Sure you’re not ... moreI'm just "up and running" to keep my mind away from gloomy thoughts and some hard work today (but it's done). :-) Nope, not a machine, I'm an artist after all, but for example the person causing one part of this was a bit machine-like. Wasted time thinking there might be something special and trying to get closer only to realize that she doesn't even know how to turn off Bluetooth on her phone and it's been "on" for a year. Oh well. Enough soap opera stuff. If any desperate women are reading this you can find me on OKCupid, just use "Symbian" and "black metal" as search keywords, haha.
In other news, I discovered QuickApp, just what I needed. So now, when my phone is locked, a long press on the camera button launches the camera (using QuickCam), and long press on the menu button launches CameraPro. Both with the same "beep" sound. Yay! It can launch any other app you choose (and one more via double press) but I wanted it just for this one. Took some nice sunset photos today too. There's also a new app called "Double Waves" out which enables you to unlock the phone or answer a call by waving in front of the proximity sensor twice. It can even activate the speakerphone. Good for when you're using gloves, I guess.
A bit sad about the Nokia Store news. Just... disappointed. There will still be new apps just not in the Store, and if some internet website changes something there will be no more updates, for example the Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, RSS apps... if anything changes about the way they have to access the data on the internet people won't be able to get updates and continue using the apps. I mostly just use Opera Mini, and UC Browser isn't too bad and it gets updates downloadable right from their website, but still... Don't know. I played with a Galaxy S3 yesterday, it's not bad, easy to figure out, the camera is OK (though the photo quality is not as exciting as on N8) but the price is awful. I suppose I could get used to Android some day in the future. I'm definitely not getting a Lumia now, they could discontinue the support out of the blue just like they did here. But here's to tomorrow, if all goes well I'm getting one more wrist strap for my N8. :-D
Symbian and meego apps on nokia will no longer be accepted/updated on Jan 1, 2014
