Maniac, 20 Nov 2008Tzsep(C3P0 for that matter), I have a question for you: "Why you a hater?". We understand you ... moreFantastic & constructive comments from maniac. This is the right approach and manner we should be using here.
For your question regarding texting while listening to music, I've tried doing it and tried it again immediately after reading your comment just to be sure - no lagging or slow down in my E8's operation. Since I owned the phone until now, I've not encountered any "hangs" too. Further to this topic of lagging, E8 can have a slight lag sometimes (not all the time), I called and talked to a Motorola's tech guy to ask why my previous V8 is faster & smoother than E8 since both are using 500Mhz processor & Linux OS too. He said it is due to the extra processing power required for E8's additional features like morphing keypad, haptics design, FastScroll Wheel function and so on resulting in a slight lag sometimes. Since both V8 & E8 are using 500Mhz processor, V8 will perform faster & smoother as there are no additional loads for its processor to work on unlike E8 with its unique CES 2008 winning features. I felt the difference because I changed from V8 to E8 back to back but after 2 months now, I'm OK with it, not that it'll "lag" for an hour, just in milliseconds and it's only sometimes so I can live with that.
Once again I would like to thank you maniac regarding your great long comment here, I can see you are a genuine CONTRIBUTOR in helping those in need of information on E8 - unlike some CONTRADICTORs. (LOL)
e8lover, 20 Nov 2008yeah you're right!! tsepz and C3Po is just one.. and one thing N81 freezes and restarts.. i ... morehi there. i read your comments haha.... im also e8 lover i wont allow nokia phones win against motorola phones...motorola are the phones that really wins than evr! and not nokia phones...ahaha..,nokia phones are so popular almost everybdy gets it...haha..nokia phones do hangs and restarts that's right!
Maniac, 20 Nov 2008Tzsep(C3P0 for that matter), I have a question for you: "Why you a hater?". We understand you ... moreYeah, he's right. If you love your phone, then so be it. But picking on other phones at will is just too brutish and insulting. If someone has a better high-end phone and he bashes the N81 forums, won't you feel hurt by that guy's comments, huh? Put yourself in one's shoes, you will know how degrading it is to have his favorite product badmouthed by another person.
Apparently, someone has deleted my latest comment. It was not aimed at degrading anyone whatsoever; I'm just trying to prove that not even a fraction of the people who use high-end phones actually maximize the features of such devices. It would be too impractical and useless to buy a feature-rich phone if you will only use it to talk and text, not to mention show it off to your buddies. Not everyone is a techno whiz like you, Tsepz.
Tzsep(C3P0 for that matter), I have a question for you: "Why you a hater?". We understand you love the N81 (it's a nice feature phone) but why do you choose to pick on the E8 and it's users? Nobody said that N81 is a bad phone (I'm right now looking for a new phone myself and i'm being tempted by the E8 and N81...i'll get to that later on). I think you're very childish and immature(if I were a head-shrink, i'd say even that you are unhappy with the N81 and try to make yourself feel better by bashing others).
To be honest, the N81 is a better featured phone than the E8(not to mention that the price diference isn't that great, around here, the N81 is around 70$ more expensive than the E8) but they are ment to appeal to different people.I for one don't need half of the features of the N81(games/browsing/camera etc) BUT I need a good music player, decent build quality and great talk quality!
I for one am looking for a music saavy phone, with good audio quality and overall good package. I've ended up testing the 5310, E8 and N81, and of what I can say both Nokia's are faster in operation than the E8 and simpler to use than it(after 30 min of using, the E8 control is quirky, but i think i could get used to it), but they are also rather boring phones. Switching from the 5310 to N81, you don't feel the almost 150$ leap in price tag. And don't even get me started on the N81 keys...they are, at least for me, horrendus in quality(cheapish plastic at best).
What I see that people don't understand is that the E8 is ment to hit on the 5310 and other XM phones. And if it would have arrived a bit sooner on the market i feel it would have blown the 5310 out of the watter. It surpasses it on every front:
2. Build quality
3. Sound quality/Music quality
4. "Je ne says quoi" effect.
And the price tag difference is minimal (about 60$)
But these are only my conclusions after a small amount of time spent with the phones.
There is one big problem I have with buying the E8:
Can you write a message and listen to music at the same time? (I mean, i know you can, but it doesn't freez/hang/move very slowly?)
e8lover, 20 Nov 2008i don't care if N81 has all of those...
Stuart, jjsoviet and all of the e8 users love this ph... moreYou try gain popularity with your phone? Wow thats really sad. My phone is a tool not something i use to gain popularity, my personality does that for me. Thanx for showing us how much of a loser you are. :-)
GSMArena did an audio test, i suggest searching, N81 did very well.
To the other person
M@t2 is what will show up when using Opera Mini. And the reason why they compared e8 to XM phones is due to low/similar pricing.
To the id1ot
The Nseries are not cheap, and hold their value very well.
Stuart, 20 Nov 2008Hi all Motorola E8 fans, looks like C3Po has changed name so don't need to waste time going an... moreyeah you're right!! tsepz and C3Po is just one..
and one thing N81 freezes and restarts.. i know you also don't want that thing to happen right?? cuz freezing and restarting makes the phone sucks! thank god we choose the e8 right? cuz even though it doesn't have features like N81 does.... i'm sure you'd probably hate more the freezing and restarting thing...LOL =)
Hi all Motorola E8 fans, looks like C3Po has changed name so don't need to waste time going another round of "debates" with the new "name". Look at the encoded Location (M@T2) so don't waste your time & effort as we have already "Been there, done that".
Looks like N81 was brought up again, I'm certainly happy for being an E8 user and hoping CNET could also conduct a comparison between these two - something I strongly believe will not materialize as I believe the judging panel are radical and more intelligent individuals to even think it's logical to do so. Let's celebrate all E8 users, the phone's been perceived to be at higher levels again. (LOL)
meeia.se'lover, 20 Nov 2008hey 3g isn, always needed!besides???????????????????????i dont real get nseries coz dey r chea... moreyou're so right! in fact in some countries nokia is cheap for them they use other brands like motorola, se, and samsung.. nokia is like level of alcatel which is cheap right?
don't be foolish! we all know many of nokia phones are just copycat and are only innovations. nothings changed sometimes they just need to add details for them to look newer.. they launch many phones but they're just rubbish phones..
C3po, 17 Nov 2008Thats the most pathetic statement. Anyway the N81 has its unique feature such as being the 1st... morei don't care if N81 has all of those...
Stuart, jjsoviet and all of the e8 users love this phone...
i also love and i really enjoy playing games on this phone.. i don't need N81 for perfect gaming cuz for me this phone has its all i need music.. camera.. games..
my classmates gets envy because of this phone.. in fact i don't need to gain popularity because of using expensive phone like your N81, i gain popularity because of UNIQUE features in this phone, feel special and proud cuz of the phone's only feature that no other has..
maybe your one of what we call IGNORANT because your not aware of the feature this phone has..
and i don't need N81 and their features if i have a phone like no other has..
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2008Whatever... Give me fact if Nokia N81 better than Motorola E8 in Music. Don't only talk / post... moreahaha your too diffensive with the stupid nokia phones!did i hurt your feelings????ahaha i don't need to apogize or begg moto rokr e8 good than ever!now n82 is that the only phone you can boust me?????) v8 vs n96 ...v8 won even v8 don't have 3g cos v8 is too good looking and that n81 won't win even it have 3g cos it looks so corny .....so fun to laugh at that n81!
Tsepz, 19 Nov 2008Lol, i actualy found your comment pointless. Im a power user, i require a screen thats 2.4inch... morehey 3g isn, always needed!besides???????????????????????i dont real get nseries coz dey r chearry than ever!oh come on,,, why wont accept it
Tsepz, 19 Nov 2008Lol, i actualy found your comment pointless. Im a power user, i require a screen thats 2.4inch... more
Tsepz, you don't realize that not everyone, not even 20 percent of people who own high-end phones even use the features provided by their devices. Heck, 3G calling is rare even amongst 3G phone users. People use GPS less often than you think. And how many people know technical terms such as HSDPA, EV-DO, Carl Zeiss and accelerometer? Not a lot.
It's time you learn that most people are not like you, who wants every single feature om the planet in his phone.
Whatever... Give me fact if Nokia N81 better than Motorola E8 in Music. Don't only talk / post by your ownself.
stop, bosting nseries oh, please???????>>>>>>>.....they're not that good looking ! haha
100 Moto, 20 Nov 2008Don't / can't understand why you even bother to come into the E8 forum after reading the specs... morehey are you sure n81 better tan motorola e8????ahaha...even motorola e8 doesn't have complete features it has the good looks than that n81 so... e8 got ces award this year 08
Tsepz, 19 Nov 2008Lol, i actualy found your comment pointless. Im a power user, i require a screen thats 2.4inch... moreDon't / can't understand why you even bother to come into the E8 forum after reading the specs...
E8 was meant to compete with your favorite brand's XM series....have you done any comparision yourself? If not, there are dozens of websites around which prove E8's music capability outperforms all of its competitors,
Then fanboys of certain almighty brand don't want to accept the fact, so they bring out the discussion of N81...costing 2~3 times more than E8, for comparision and says N81 wins everything.
You ain't comparing apples with apples, but apples with oranges...
Speaking of depreciation, yes, in terms of % Moto phones drop faster than some brands. Though when N81 costs 2~3 times more than an E8, the "actual $" being lost is also greater than E8.
