Nokia N8 vs. Samsung Pixon12 vs. Sony HX5v shootout: Blind test - read the full textThe Nokia N8 is an immensely popular phone and we’re already hard at work on a proper review of the handset. Since the N8 camera is its pivotal feature, we’re interested how you'd rate it in a blind shootout with two other cameras...

I have a n8, i got one for my dad a year ago, and I just got another for my girlfriend last week. Yes, it's 2013 and I still can't find another phone on the market that I like more than the 2010 Nokia n8.

And what she had before was the Nokia N9 which is nice, but a little too buggy to rely on for SMS communication.

There are so many things about this phone that I like that you can't find on other so-called "modern" phones. You've heard about them all before, I'm sure: FM Transmitter, MicroSD slot, clock when in standby mode, long battery life, offline maps, hdmi output, reliable phone!!, threaded sms, awesome camera, dedicated camera button.

Will *any* company ever release a phone that is an upgrade from this?

N86 has LED Flash which has less power, but its video is flash enabled.

While N8 is recording video, a small LED light lights up as an anti piracy measure, but it can't provide much light anyways to be used as flash...

samsung cameras are good but not better than sony. The hd quality of sony is much better than nokia and samsung.

Maybe they didn't make it to be flash video recording, to prevent porn being recorded under a blanket with no light. Haha, anyways I think the N8 is great!!!

I have the Samsung Pixon 12 and the Nokia N8. The Samsung takes a LOT better pictures than the N8. They are so much clearer, much better for motion, and no where nearly compressed as much as the Nokia. I'm actually keeping my Pixon12 as a secondary camera. I'd be going back to using the Samsung but it doesn't have threaded messaging and only holds so many text messages. Extremely annoying.
