E8 WITH LATEST FIRMWARE IS NOT SLOW AT ALL. But you wanna talk about N81 so...
Oh I just remember, a single naughty application is enough to crawl the whole platform to freeze. And did I say VIRUSES? Out there to steal my data and compromise my privacy. Get one and your N81 is useless until you remove it or format N81 (formatting is not a bad thing guys). Not a problem, anti-viruses are there. But just install one of them and see your N81 crawling down again lol.
Stuffed with some useless features that either ppl not gonna use or are already present in a lappy, but then I believe you might wanna replace (or have already replaced) your lappy with N81, so lets compare your N81 with a lappy. Ma XPS screams for your N81 anytime hahaha.
N81 vs XPS, fair enough guys???

It's still unfair at the start to have a smartphone match against a non-smartphone. Even if the N81 is Music and Gaming oriented, it has too many features that the E8 doesn't have to call this a fair fight. The best competitor out there in Nokia is the XpressMusic 5310.

Of course there are new versions available and I have one of them. I can now text or play 3d Java games while playing music (WMA lossless file format) without lags at all. The new versions have simplified codings unlike the old ones.
You and your so-called "powerful" Symbian will be someday replaced with something better. Believe me.
jjsoviet, 30 Nov 2008Picking a fight again, huh? Come on, show me what you've got.
As I've said countless times... moreI love how you keep pulling that the masses card,lol, fair enough then, your E8 lags whilest playing Music and Texting, thats what you said, well last i checked these two features are used heavily nowhere days by the masses, and many expect their +$200 phone to ATLEAST be able to run Music Player, Messaging and IM at once with no lag, yet the MUSIC/TEEN orientated E8 cant even handle running Music and Messaging well? This is the 21st century where even the masses now HAVE TO learn about things like RAM, CPU etc. . .its the age of Multitasking, even your car is more than just a mean of transport, so dont you dare pull that card we both know that Music and Texting are large amongst phone users.
The reason i ran those apps is because in the one browser i was viewing Gsmarena, in the other i was downloading a movie and i was also fiddling with the phones file system in X-Plore.
The N81 is a Music and Gaming phone so it can be compared to a E8, it was compared to a SE W910 even. I find it weird that a phone released in 2008 thats focused on Music cant even handle running little tasks such as Messaging at the same time.
The E8 is no lagfest. For those who say so, are probably under T-Mobile, go read the reciews. T-Mobile always messes up the OS. In other parts of the world (not America), the E8 is working just fine.
PS. E8 vs N81 is bull* Compare E8 to 5320. It's sexier, has a better sound output, has an edgier design, better materials construction (5320 is aaaaaall ugly plastic), and did I say it's cheaper? Ballgame E8

Please explain every reason for each application. Otherwise, you are a liar for saying that pathetic statement.

If Motorola were the first to use it, then it would be a different story all together.

As I've said countless times before, only the technologically literate can fully utilize their phone functions (these people only constitute a fraction of the world's population). How about the masses? While they're not that stupid to use a phone, they don't need those other features you are boasting a bloody long time ago. Most people in the world are not technofreaks like you.
Why pick on the E8 again? The E8 is not a direct competitor to the N81. A smartphone versus a music phone? It's utterly insane. Try the Attilla if you want, which uses Windows Mobile 6.1 OS.

A phone for communication now if it does that whilest getting a Text its worrying. Im currently listening to Music, have Opera8.65 running, OperaMini running, Contacts, Messaging and X-Plore all running and my N81 is still fast, hasnt even frozen, plus i have Transitions and Menu Effects turned On.
Poor e8 users need to deal with a slow device with poorly implemented software just because they love MOTO, thats exactly why MOTO will never make another great phone, they figured that they have dumb fans who will buy any of their phones no matter how bad it is and they will live with it. You might as well have RIP ME OFF written on your forheads.

Also, older firmware versions have the slow original theme (Onyx) because of its complex coding. Newer firmwares have simplified themes which would allow snappier menu response.

Registration is free, and all you have to have is your data cable and some software and firmware to download.
my motorokr e8 is very slow... dunno how to put it but it takes too much time to react.. when i receive a msg though if i hit the button immediatly it just take hell a lotsa time to view.. while listening music the case is even more worse... can anyone help me? is this solvable? if yes... please let me know...

Motorola has long time ago make touchscreen phone than Nokia. Motorola has more experience than Nokia.
Motorola Attila shows up in the wild
Slowly but surely, Motorola is easing away from the tired design of the old RAZR and looks ready to try something new. Their first QWERTY slider could be launching soon, in the form of the Motorola QA30, and now we find that the Motorola Attila, too, takes on a new approach in design.
If these leaked Motorola Attila pictures turn out to be of the real thing, that is. You see, while we here at Unwired View are as thirsty for new material as the next phone geek, we’re not entirely convinced that Motorola will launch a robust, iPhone clone-like handheld like this one as their official iPhone killer.
We have faith left in Motorola, no matter how little, and somehow know that they won’t (or shouldn’t) come out with a monstrosity such as this, if their successful days with the slim and sharp RAZR taught them any good.
The fact that the second photo we’ve embedded here shows the alleged Motorola Attila with a very iPhone-esque theme doesn’t help convince us either. With a theme like that, it might as well be just another clone, much like the Motorola Aura knock-off we spotted last week.
Well, if ever they get their chance, I’m sure Motorola will officially announce and release the Attila… some day. By then, we’ll find out if “antony3322@PhoneHK” was right all along.

Now here is one thing no NOKIA phone can ever do, STOPPING A BULLET. And its been done by our very own RAZR!!! Check it out on engadget :)
Maniac, 21 Nov 2008Again, this N81 vs E8 is pointless: different price tags, different specs and different consum... moreRegarding your statement:
A clamshell, even if it's prettier and somewhat easier to use, also relies on a hinge to flip open/closed, and that is it's week spot.
Not sure what experience you have with any Moto's flip phone regarding the flip ever fails.
My understanding is most Moto flip phones go thru a test with at least 100,000 times open / close action.
My oldeest flip phone...Moto V60i, is still working great! Other old flip phones I've in my collection that are still working include V600, V3x, V6, etc..
From my experience, everything else might fail (such as the original battery probably can only last 18 months) before the flip dies.
Can you share your experience with (Moto) flip phones which failed your standards?
