Nokia fans will not like this phone. It has a capacitive screen. Nokia fans have been going to iphone threads saying that capacitive is no good, that a stylus is essential. So I guess to nokia fans, this phone is not good :)
Nokia/Symbian needs to get rid of the old style signal bars and battery bars. Need to have more stylish signal bars and battery indicator like iPhone. If they copied the DOTs (3 dots at the bottom of the screen) to represent the number of home screen pages, why can't they copy remaining stuff.
It's early to judge dude, we must wait and then see for ourselves whether this phone is worth the hype or not. But so far I think we should admit that the specs are just stunning totally stunning!!
And you know what scares me most??? Is that it's a nokia!! So only god knows how good the sales of this handset will be. Because Nokia's name and reputation is the strongest worldwide.
Even when nokia sucked big time, their sales were the strongest so just imagine now what will happen after such an ultimate handset?? Do you see my point bro? Samsung were reaching nokia very fast, but after this seriously samsung should watch their backs now!
Releasing thei flagship handset with no flash was a disaster! And now look what nokia has. Well I guess that's the reason Nokia has been the king of sales and market share ever since they existed.
Simply Awesome. They have taken the E71's sleek body and transformed it in to a touch screen high end multimedia phone. Good job Nokia. This phone will fly if operating system is stable.

Arron, 27 Apr 2010What internal storage does it have? does any one know? 32GB like N900?16 Gb internal + 32 GB by optional SDcard. Maximum 64 GB
1200 mah battery? What is Nokia doing? this phone is destined for poor battery life, just like me beloved n900. such a shame. and so is the screen resolution, gonna be about a year too late!
The good: Really good camera. Nice to have HDMI port. Good value for money.
The Bad: Average processor for high end device in this day and age. At least 1 GHz was needed. Not enough RAM, needed slightly bigger screen for an all touch enabled device.
People yesterday because of the Protype N8 mobile-review.com,the N8 was getting slagged down,put now officially announce people are really excited about the N8,will definetly be next mobile when released,as i only got the Satio because of the Symbian software an camera on it,an been waiting for some time for Nokia to release a better touch screen mobile with a Top Class camera on it,an the choice of different colours i very good idea from Nokia,hope the New Symbian software gets sorted out an the N8 released as soon as possible
Awesome camera! This will have N82 owners throwing their phones away at last.
My only concern is with the support for Symbian 3 being limited, and I'm also surprised at the 25fps limit when the N95 films in 30fps.
I've always said that a better lens is what a phone needs instead of more Megapixels, and Nokia may have proved me wrong!
android is very hard to use compared with symbian.i use for 6 month an android and it was really hard to manage contacts,give sms,mms, configure mms settings. wallpaper was very hard to choose because the photo is laying 0n 3 difffrent screens. i don,t like android. symbian is much more friendly
I dont know what to say! I am amazed with this phone! Nokia u did it again!!! Phone with those features at 370e price!? Wow! Cant waith to buy it! Nokia is doing with just one phone what poor samsung cant with 10! This is perfection! I love colors,i love design,i love features! I love everything about this phone! This will be bestseller,my next phone! Great job nokia!
What version of flash does it have? The later the better. I've heard from Steve Jobs that lots of browser instability happen because of the flash.
livin, 27 Apr 2010I haven't seen iPhone 4G in my hands yet. I agree iPhone UI has not changed much and it's gett... moreI am talking about the iPhone's body not the user interface, the design is left the same except for the edges which now are flat and also the back is flat too but the rest is still the same, same bezel width and height, screen size, front look, power button etc..and it's probably going to have LCD instead of Super AMOLED OR AMOLED and 5MP which is pretty bad. Android phones already has 8MP camera; HTC incredible droid, soon more to join. as for the resolution is still a rumor so let's not cross our fingers, 960x640 seems kinda unreal for 3.5 inch
I don't understand the low price when n97 is much more expensive, yet much less specced. I WANT THIS!!! Still can't afford it though.
After all the posts..Don't you all agree that this phone specs are good. People including me..fret about Symbian.
With this phone Nokia should create a tool that would give user a choice to install Symbian ^3 or Maemo6/Meego on it.
This phone would be perfect with Maemo6/Meego on it!
Problem solved :-)
Now lets stop bitchin' :-)
ppl understand this is just symbian 3, symbian 4 is still coming! And if ppl are thinking this will rival the iphone, imagine what symbian 4 and meego may bring to the table
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2010The design is nice!, it's colored aluminum people not some cheapy plastic. at least Nokia chan... moreI haven't seen iPhone 4G in my hands yet. I agree iPhone UI has not changed much and it's getting pretty boring to look at it.
However, the details in iPhone 4th generation lies in small things it does good. They are using kinda ceramic material for better cell reception. That is a change that they are addressing to certain section of people. Their display is to be rumored around 960 * 640 which would be awesome on a 3.5 inch device that would look better on their 5 MP video capture and picture quality.
