? just skimmed through mobile-review's camera comparison, I think they do a fairer job of it than gsm arena's own n8 camera comparison. Why? Because Mobile-Review bothered to do test shots against a variety of settings (light, dark, downcast, bright, etc conditions) whereas gsm arena just did a bunch of downcast shots, which probably hides the N8's software deficiencies which mobile-review clearly point out.
I couldn't help but agree with GSM arena on this one. Nokia N8 judging by specs and all that is good phone. I am sick and tired of gizmodo and engadget and their anti love for a lot of thinks europian to include nokia and honestly even though I love android it is far from perfect and american tech sites are makiń to. Much noise about it.
The N8 needs a thorough review before I pass any judgement. I don't want to fall into a stupid operator contract & find I can't get the N9 for months on end. Nokia & developers need to push their app store & make it sing also. Also Dolby 5.1 content a reality for web tv & good delivery service standards for good compression quality & resolution. Audio 5.1. Nokia! what do you say - We finally have the storage capacity & means to deliver this content to phones with the abilities to playback HD quality & multi bitstream output. etc.. etc..
I have to ask gsmarena to change their website image applets for the camera images. It seems to stretch the images larger than their actual aspect ratio should look introducing more compression artifacts which durface such asd noise. This makes it very difficult to render any fair analysis. Image is either too small or too large. Either fix this or please allow specific resizing paramters or more zoom controls. Please!
Dear Nokia. Please push the operators to move their butt, to figure out plans & start mainstream rollout to worldwide markets & operators already. Rest My cases. yes yes!

IMHO, GSM-Arena is the best Mobile Reviewer in the Planet. Fair to all reviews. This is the best site when checking for your new mobile. It gives the important details of the units Pros and Cons and it give give the reader a chance to make the right choice. No Brand Loyalty just honest to goodness review.

Jiish, its got it all...THANK YOU NOKIA!!!
Lately it has all been about the iPhone this and the iPhone that. Apple makes awesome software and hardware, but its not the best around. I want an iPhone 4 myself, but dont sell Nokia short. They still make the best equipped hardware around and MeeGo is around the corner. Perhaps those two faced journalists who had love for Nokia in the past will have some love for it again... Nokia has made some bad decisions, but like all manufacturers they go through a bad patch and learn that the mighty does indeed fall. Who know's. A few years down the line everyone would be having the same hate for Apple? And Motorola will once again be Number 1? Such is the ecosystem of technology. It progresses too fast that we have gotten used to getting bored with what he have alot quicker than before.
Clearly they have a problem with symbian itself, its not a perfect os but NEITHER is anything else out there, which people forget.

For goodne's sake people, wait for the reviews! Nokia phones aren't too exiting, but the hardware is mostly good, and they do try to fix Symbian.
They've got an app store and a free nav up and running, that's better than what most comapnies do: Jump in Android and not even try to put out something of their own. You try to compete with the Iphone. Good luck!

n8 is bad n ppl will regret buying
I guess nokia n8 is gonna face some serious biased criticisms, its human nature to praise what we have when we see something extra ordinally great to keep up our spirits...
N8 is the most visited phone on gsmarena... The visitors don't just come to stroll around on sites... Further more if u calculate a bit u can find out that someone is consistently voting 1 for features looks and performance to keep the performance avg low...
A clear depiction of feeling of insecurity and competition, i guess gsmarena people can give a FAIR AND UNBIASED review to get it to its much deserved glory...
