The author is absolutely right about the whole thing. many reviewers seem like they are unfit to do such reviews, as some comparisons they make while reviewing the products are rubbish, as the basic criteria for comparing itself is wrong. and most often the reviews look very biased, You will realize this when a product which you are using currently is reviewed, and you don't seem to find any if the problems mentioned by the reviewers.
There are some situaions, that you can give your personal opinion (usability, intuitivness etc.) and reviews are subjective by the person, who wrote it. If someone doesn't like Symbian, he won't start to love it in N8, to be fair with readers. What's more - we've options: I can read review at GSMArena, at Gizmodo, at Engadget and make my personal average. And the fact, that N8 is one of the headsets, that Nokia want's to become important, it's absolutelly not important for me, as for user. N8 has NOTHING that i'll want to have in my phone (for 7 years, that I'm using phones with cameras, I used them mayby 5 times), and for the flagship it has nothing more to offer for high-eend user except that camera... So I don't see the reason to praise Nokia and N8...
ALl the complaint about n8 is like complainaboitn97 symboan 1
n8 is much different from n97
n i forgot to say... gsmarena rocks n it's the best site... fair n the best...
Questions to all Andriod and iOS fans:
1.Can you state all your phone can do that N8 can't??
2.DO you really think your phone can beat N8 in terms of functionality?
3.If your phone has lots of eye-candy, you think its superior?
4.Have you ever touched a Nokia N8 or any Symbian^3 device before bashing Nokia?
4.1 if NO, dont you think its kinda pathetic comparing things that only live in your puny mind?
i cant believe how foolish people have become, eventhough you like your iPhone or an Android phone doesnt mean its a perfect phone for everyone. IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOUR PREFERENCE.
i hope you can digest what it means.
buy a nokia n8 and then share us your PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, we don't need your HYPOTHESIS.
n8 is a gr8 fone...iphone is crap as it doesn't even have d basic features yet...android is gud bt symbian is equally gud...i don knw why ppl keep on complainin abt d UI... I think it's gr8... Luk at othr oses menus they luk not so gud...d icons r flat n nt so attractive even if u change it...bt symbian is awesome...n N8 offers everything n d hardware is gud...n for those complainin abt N8 havin a low processor...they shud do some b4 speakin ol dat...symbian is a lighter os n can provide d same power wid its hardware as a 1ghz android...so ppl first do your research n stop speakin ol those dumb things... Nokia n N8 rocksss... N I'm typing ol dis on My N97 Mini n it's a gr8 fone n much bttr than any of d iphones atleast bttr than d 3gs...
i hope there will be 5 inches screen phone w/ keypad in year 2011. no more than 200g.
3.5 inches screen is still too small to serve internet or play games.
currently, prefer 4" w/ keypad nokia E7 over 3.5" N8/iphone.
use the screen 99% and 1% the camera/video/fm
I don't care what the gurus say, i will getting the N8 as soon it hits the stores in South Africa.
all people know n8 is slower, why still arguing on this issue.
As an mobile internet user, i need flash and can insert attachment(photo or document). i don't want to go to another pc/laptop then it is ultimate slow.
slower a bit but functioning is wise choice.
current nokia n95 8gb, n86, 5800, ipad, iphone 4,ipod,imac,windows user.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010and a fun and intuitive interface...which makes the phone fun to use lol thats the core rig... moreof course to be able to enjoy a phone you should care for how many things it can do.
symbianfrance found out
that the Nokia N8 is faster
than the iPhone 4 at
browsing from albums A
to Z. For example on the
iPhone 4 you would need
to scroll with your fingers
like 15 times or more
(depending how many
albums you have) just to
reach the first or last
album on the list. But on
the Nokia N8 that amount
can be reduced to 4-5
scrolls because the Nokia
N8 has another way of
managing coverflow. So if
you have a lot of music
this can surely help.

yes you are right gsmarena this same thing i have also observed :) when i saw the samples of iphone 4 and n8 and even video there were many shaking points in n8 may be the guy who was testing n8 forgotten to hold n8 like a phone cuz at the same time he was using iphone 4 :p which has obviously signal reception issues you know what i mean
although there was the time SYMBIAN was considered to be the king of the mobile world because of its user friendly UI etc but i think still symbian is very nice OS except the eye candy thing but symbian is a proper perfect OS and andriod too i love both OS but IOS4 is crap
i really depend on your website whenever i wish to buy anything because of your neutral attitude towards your profession
Pixon12 has better color and better quality , Iphone 4 are very good , N8 si like Satio ...POOR
I saw the video and I totally agree that its not fair for the N8. I also cant believe the camera will take that long, I will probably give N8 a chance and decide when I got mine. Nokia's best phone ever!
elphau, 04 Oct 2010for nokia defense,i've been using N86 for about 5 months now, i've never experienced anything ... moreha nice, then you got the awesome one that didnt give you problems, me, i wasnt so lucky lol.
ronsterrr, 04 Oct 2010"Or are we the ones in the wrong? Feel free to share your opinion on the matter in the co... moreIt's not so much the manufacturers as it is Google and Apple. A large number of U.S. blog sites are paid by them to review phones in a specific light. Google and Apple feel threatened by Nokia especially with their Meego coming out, their QT platform and their awesome hardware. The N8 trounces every mobile there is in existence due to its hardware. A lot of people will buy it because if its camera - this means there will be less sales for iPhone and Android devices. They feed this hate through their fans, because Americans will easily hate anything non-American, it's part of the cultural upbringing. Anything they cannot control must be destroyed, hence the hate campaign. I doubt they'll succeed though. Most consumers in the world are smart enough to go by their own experiences and not some blog posts.
[deleted post]Do invent other points, took me almighty four taps to turn bluetooth on.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010There's nothing wrong with an os that a 6yr old can use. I just dont like the idea that everyo... morewell you can do that for android too, add folders, and add security to your phone and what not, and have bluetooth n file transfering. iOS not so much but still, its do-able. but i get your point.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010The iphone4 has specs of a 2007 phone model! The n95 has had multitask, c&p, gps, 5mp cam... moreand a fun and intuitive interface...which makes the phone fun to use lol
thats the core right there, at least for me. if i dont enjoy using the phone i wouldnt care for how many things it can do.
