I totally agree, specially for the Endgaget photos review, if I dare call that a review, at the first picture I saw the cheat.
it looks obvious that the pictures have not been taken by the same way.
what it's very disappointing for me, is their readers posted comments, based on that pictures, and didn't realize the cheat. I'd believe that they are all apple fanboy ;)
I used to consider all the phone reviews to be taken with a pinch of salt, and by reading all of them, trying to cross the information and what is always brought out and seems true.
It's in charge of the readers to take that into account, one review of a phone, has never been enough to base our own judgement before buying or not a phone.
btw, Thanks to you GsmArena to have highlighted this unfair behavior and to help naive people to be warn.

Anonymous, 03 Oct 2010If symbian is so nice, why other manufacturers like sony, samsung are dropping it n moved to androidOh, I was waiting for that argument. How good were the SE and Sammy Symbian smartphones going up against the Nokia's Symbian smartphones? I'll answer it for you: they were poor and small. They couldn't even compete with Nokia's offerings on price and they paid little regards to firmware updates as well. I had an Omnia HD i8910 and it was poor besides all the customizations and multitasking. Samsung left us in the dust.
Android is short-term for them. This is them competing with Nokia in the smartphone region since they couldn't when they were using Symbian. Samsung is utilizing their resources into the Bada platform and will be moving their phones onto that OS once they get it up to speed. Have you played with Bada? It's fast, accurate and a good experience, and once it gets 3rd party support, it will be incredible.
As for Sony Ericsson, they can't support worth a damn. I love that company but the X10 is an outdated Android phone out of the gate, running 1.6 with no multitouch support and other plagues. But hey, at least they sold a lot. I wish them luck with the update to 2.1.......Notice how I said update to 2.1 and not 2.2....
[deleted post]Al of reviewers and other user know about nokia n8 popularity.they have fear.they said in past that nokia n8 delays becoz of have fault.nokia just fulfil the promise and release in Q3.those who just say that n8 delay are saying about camera start open 9seb,low resolution.its al are fake .believe me user nokia n8 is perfect.it al rounder.u can do everything.u can use even gsm/gprs at a speed of 150kbps.htc sumsung,lg al other phone just suport 48kbps.that a great technology difrence
at the end of the day its all media gsm arena,endendgadget etc you will all post your opinions that is what your here for everybody has there own opinion full pump so nobody can claim anything against another site and there comments there will always be criticism across the board ,personally i like gsm arena i check in every day and keep an open mind on the reviews but dont take it all in until i do homework on the devices myself and then compare.having said that i dont come in and state .such and such said this or that ,we all have a right to comment and we all have the freedom of speech good night i just hope the n8 does something for nokia .
i have seen the video posted by gizmodo and its outrageous ...well gud news is that another guy comes up wid a video as a reply to that video and he shows how fast and efficient the nokia n8 is..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bJ018LZjLc is the link to that video and i request all the ppl to see for urself how cool the n8 really is and how that particular blogger is a biased person

Anonymous, 03 Oct 2010Oh right, forgot to add. Still sold in millions. Got bad rep. Guess why they didn't launch N8 ... morenokia don't learn ANYTHING!
See, all phones (3 years ago) have slower and cheaper technology than competition! Thats reason WHY loose race!
N8 is FIRST amoled from Nokia (1,5 year late and loose race)
Why N97 not have 680mhz cpu? (in 2009 this speed is relative)
680mhz for 2010/2011 is NOT GOOD!
Competition have much more powerful phones and technology than N8!
Stupid people only see "metal body, camera and fm transmitter"...
It's NOT point for GOOD phone!!!
GOOD phone today MUST BE FAST and USEFUL!!!
N8 is NOT useful!!!
Thats why this is the only mobile review site I read, and I have been with GSMarena for over 3 years! keep on the good work guys, as I'm duo for a upgrade, I really need to know how N8 competes with others from a fair and professional reviewer. :D
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2010i thought n8 is first s^3??I tried it at press release n it's poorYeah, it is. I've tried it at Nokia World and the store and London. Our opinions must be day and night since I've encountered no problems with it, outside of the lame browser. YMMV
Wonder if Engadet get the paychek from Apple also Gizmondo -:)

The only problems I see with the nokia n8 and symbian 3 is the fack that there is no multi touch when typing , when typing message you are taken to a different screen where u can see the original screen you were on and the web browser is not that fast and there is no muti page support and the pinch to zoom is not inconsistent. Other than that it is a perfect phone for some one who does not want a keyboard
