oh really? mediocre specs? can you tell me does those HTC, Ipohne or Android phones has USB-on-the-go, 12mp camera, f transmitter and more from this Nokia N8? I don;t think so. Maybe in few years they will going to have those features. The only advantage of those phones are it's UI and internet experience... they even failed in the most impt.feature of a phone which is calling... duh! drop call! haha! what a smartphone!

Now iphone maker are advertising about face xxx software but nokia had this function right from n73.
I always like nokia since its os just makes me very comfertable, just look any front screen of n8 , you can have almost all the main application on screen that you are using, instead of funky style and it will matter since looks fever last for hours only.
Camera wise really superb, sound excellent, advance multimedia features and lots of other feature also, but if you will go mad just because it doesnt support qwarty keyboard in verticle mode(many are blaming it for this reason) since in this way you can use it with single hand.

Still now no issues in my phone not even any minor issues. And am much happy with my N8. Its simply super. To say about browsing experiane, its not too good and at the same time its not bad. Presently u can use opera to overcome. Also the browser will be very good with next firmware update(expecting to be excellent thay any of the existing web browser). If u r a nokia love then u will really love this phone.

[deleted post]Hi selva, i'm to planning to buy this , but seeing all the reviews , that there is a bug in Symb^3.Tat it restarts often .. just waiting for the first s/w update. Now how does the phone wrk.. is it gud and internet usage.. any other probs.
actually im loving the N8 the Iphone is just more easy to use but i can do anything with the N8 ist almost like a computer! i like it!
AgeOfMobile, 01 Nov 2010The good stuff, short and sweet- - Great battery life. - Great camera and video. - Loud s... moreThe iPhone's screen is bigger because it's ratio is 3:2, whereas the N8's screen is 16:9. Obviously the wider a 3.5" screen gets, the smaller the actual screen area. It's simple maths.
Well I was trying out the music player and found it plenty loud enough for my ears, and, do you know, it played tunes! No, that's not being snide, I got a real fealing for the intricacies of what I was listening to (Purcell, Vaugn Williams, Bach, and Howard Shore).
Since I don't listen on the tube it's fine for me.
The good stuff, short and sweet-
- Great battery life.
- Great camera and video.
- Loud speaker is loud (that’s the whole point right?)
- Good display.
For the rest of the good stuff, read gsmarena’s key features.
Problems with the device are,
- No video light when recording.
- Music player good quality but not loud enough compared to an iPhone when headphones are plug in.
- Plays avi and xvid well, however when you fast forward your videos the sound stops and end up having to lip read the rest of the movie.
- Problems trying to connect to the internet when not on wifi.
- Most the time I find myself having to double tap to get into an app, messaging, camera, etc... Not very responsive for a capacitive screen.
- UI looks the same as any other Nokia
- No facebook, no twitter, no google, no imdb, none of the basic apps and on the TV adverts exists on the Ovi store, its all fake. Just pointless apps like fart and vuvuzela. (Luckily there is Angry birds and free full game of Need for speed shift)
- There’s plenty more but can’t be bothered to go through it all. Just one last thing, yeah I know iPhone, iPhone iPhone… but an iPhone is 3.5” inches, the Nokia N8 is not. Compare it your self then you’ll understand.
Selva, 31 Oct 2010Hi Friends..
Am Selva from TamilNadu,India. I got my Nokia N8(dark grey) on last monday afte... moreI agree, to make things even nicer, Nokia decided to give us the Nokia Internet Radio Application, in a new simple design,!
Here it is for the New S^3,
just go to the link, download the app, send it to your phone, if not already downloaded to the phone, and enjoy it!
Am Selva from TamilNadu,India. I got my Nokia N8(dark grey) on last monday after refering to many reviews as possible. Initially i was little afraid to buy Nokia N8 and planned to buy after 3 months. But when Nokia announced that the Symbian^3 will be continuously updated in future enhancements, i decided to buy it. I bought it for 24,000 INR including tax. A day after i goy my N8 i had a trip to my nera district so i havent used it much. When i returned after 2 day trip, i started to play with my N8. It was working so perfectly and there is no lags at all. For me the problem started when installed Kaspersky Mobile Security(KMS). My sweet N8 started to reboot continuously, so i took it to Nokia care. They cleaned the mobile and gave back to me. From that time to till noe i was enjoying the features and performance of N8. To say it in Simple Words. Nokia N8 is simply Super. GREAT JOB NOKIA.
In between i left a another incedence. When i was taking photo from my N8 i always had very poor quality photo and is worst when compared to 3.2MP camera also. So i again called to Nokia Priority and asked for replacement. But thay asked to come shop. When i reached shop(am fully wet because of rain) i took the moble from plastic cover and gave to Dealer guy. As soon as het got my mobile he removed the camera plastic cover and asked me to take photo. What a suprise... My N8 is shooting the Still very comparable to my Cannon IXUS 130. I saw those photos in HD TV available in Showroom. I was so happy that i have not wasted my money. Moreover dealer guy assured that if there is a problem surely he replace the mobile.Am really happy now And i can proudly say that Nokia N8 is value for money and even more.
Thank u friends. Sorry for my language.
Im in love with the N8! Is the best! Dont care about Android or Iphones!
Hardware is the way to go!!
guys just brought this phone.everything is fine but my gps is not working.google maps keeps saying seeking gps signal but never says gps active.same story with ovi maps

Murad, 30 Oct 2010Thanx Doctor Shahkar & Anonymous...But still now i am really confeused...what will i do?? ... morehtc hd2 is a very good device but the OS windows 6.5 will no longer get support as windows phone 7 released..so u wont get much support from microsoft as they r concentrating on windows 7 OS..so it useless to buy ..if u like windows 7 u have to wait i guess for 2 months to come in to ur country..
Murad, 30 Oct 2010Thanx Doctor Shahkar & Anonymous...But still now i am really confeused...what will i do?? ... morei suggest u go for htc desire..as they r very good built devices..and runs very smoothly..all android devices have battery problem..i mean they last for a day..if u r fine with.symbian then u should close ur eyes go for n8 as it has a good hardware features like camera,hdmi and USB on the go features..nokia will update the softwares quickly by firmwares..i own galaxy s and i get so much kag beside the good cpu..n everyone knows samsung updates are poor as i am still waiting for froyo update..htc desire runs android and its the best android device with htc sense..i guess htc n galaxy s all will have priced down as they released around 5 months back..where as n8 is already cheap i guess..so go for htc desire if u like android n go for n8 if u like n8 hardware with symbian..finally it comesdown to money..hope u get something to understand from my comment..cheers
