A phone is no longer just a phone that works technically brilliantly. We are sold experiences. It doesn't matter if your experience lacks something - its the whole that matters. Nokia have failed here. iPhones are terrible at certain tasks, so are Blackberries but their products have experiences that trump Nokia. Nokia have not understood this. I love(d) Nokia and a few years ago, would only suggest a Nokia to anyone that wanted a phone. The world has changed and Nokia have missed the boat. Their technology is brilliant but these have had no effect on the experience which is completely lacking. There will come a time when nostalgia will be lost and hopefully by then, the Nokia Experience will be like what it was a few years ago...
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010iphone 16gb is only 499 pounds as far as i check fr uk site!!You are, of course, aware that he was speaking about euros, and there are 16 countries that use euros these days?
Reviews are FAKE... n8 beats iphone. iphone costs 800€, n8 less than 500€. And still i would pay 800€ to get nokia n8 before iphone. i had iphone .. only thing i love from apple is logic on mac, apple for making music and i love ipod touch
I'm sorry, but who appointed GSM Arena the tech journalism watchdog??? Surely they should just post their own review. These sites have formed their own opinions of the product, GSM Arena is free to do the same. Different reviewers focus on different things, a lot of reviews on mobile-review.com for example say the exact opposite of what a review on GSM Arena will say when its the same product. Different strokes for different folks.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010Well i stopped to read mobile-review from months, because that lack of detachment, for engadge... moreiph don't do others do at the launch. Ipod still has no fm radio and it is best selling mp3. Apple afraid they will be called followers.
I WONDER HOW MUCH SOMEONE(i personally think apple) PAID FOR THOSE GUYS TO LIE & ... The truth : Android is taking iOS over. i I think WP7 will become amazing OS in terms of usability & simplicity. We all know that Symbian hasnt done great job for about 2 years... BUT COME ON! you can notice easily those pics and REVIEWS ARE FAKE! And i think N8 is far better than they make it look. So on this one, i REALLY hope this guy behind this is sued and f.u.c.k.e.d UP... never before i had believed in patent wars and all those lawsuits but now im starting to believe that some companies/moneyhungry peoples just are WRONG.
And of course GSMArena has the best reviews and are always fair with there verdict then most other sites.And I cant wait to read the review of the Nokia flagship N8 :)
Well i stopped to read mobile-review from months, because that lack of detachment, for engadget and gizmodo i have always knew that they are apple lovers, and definitely not liking nokia at all, about the dude with the questions for nokia, can he tell me, how long does it take to make video call on iphone(and only through wi-fi, and only with another iphone) how long does it take to put one simple flashlight, how long does it take to put front camera, how long does it take to make iphone, to run more than one application at once, well the list with "how long does it take" for iphone to do something that the others smartphones can do from years is very long.
Luka, 04 Oct 2010I dont understand why people cant just love Nokia? Sure,maybe GSMArena has a favorite pick on ... moreI don't know why mate. People just love to hate on these companies. I say this for every company and not just Nokia. This fanboyism is crazy.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010LAMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Look whos coming around, i'm sorry GSMarena but i must s... moreI dont understand why people cant just love Nokia? Sure,maybe GSMArena has a favorite pick on Nokia,but who doesn't? One fellow just comment that in terms comunication amd baytery life Nokia rules.That's why so many people love Nokia.It will never let you down (except if you have a false model).I have Desire and yeah,maybe Symbian isn't the great looking UI but it does it main job well,even better in some terms then my Desire
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010why no mms at the launch of iphone? 3g data plan is not used widely as today. till now not man... moreI'm done with you here, no use arguing with someone who hasn't probably even updated his sw on N97 nor doesn't understand how to turn apps off if you aren't using them (hint: that red button doesn't work the way it used to, now you can actually close them from the task manager one by one). Also, do try to use GPS, sports tracker and listen to music at the same time on your iph4. I dare you.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010iph4 has gpu+1ghz processor. So are many htc and droid x. N8 is overpriced in terms of what insideReally? The N8 costs about 450 here, an iPhone starts at 699 something. SO in effect the N8 compromises in price for the lesser components as you put it thus making the price right inline with the likes of HTC and Iph.
GSMArena, you are far better than Engadget Mobile. Engadget Mobile is SO Pro-iPhone to the point that it sickens me.
Neutrality for the win.
Nokia N8 is ok for a average use but as far as I have seen , it looses vs Android and iOS.
So I think those sites are correct.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010do it! don;t care. it is free country USA LOLI'm in the UK. I don't care about your liberties in the States.
And plus, the internet is devoid of any COUNTRY preference. GSMArena doesn't like spam, I don't either.
