well deserved praises for N8....
the phone was crazy good and way ahead of its time.
Kiyasuriin, 21 Jan 2018I have to disagree with some of the statements.
Samsung WAS the slowest to update. but it got... moreYes Samsung got better with updates, but there's still a lot of catching up. Samsung fans defend their slow updates that they already have the features on the next Android version, when in reality, not even 25% of them are used by the people who uses the phone.
At least they could join the Android One project and make a Note 8 with stock Android. Would've been better.
I would say Apple is still more overpriced because Samsung could offer way more and better for the price they're asking for. But both are still overpriced because they use their brand name and logo as a selling factor, as some other options from very reliable Chinese brands like Huawei could offer more or less the same at a much more budget-friendly price. Thanks Huawei!
ProJames, 21 Jan 2018Maybe slow but it's consistent and relatively timely. You should take a look at this:
https:/... moreLook, everything Samsung does, others do better.
For example, the Split Screen multitasking.
Google has far more apps that supports the feature than Samsung's own one.
And don't get me started with such bugs on the software that is already 1 year old. Nougat with battery not charging issues, wtf??
Even LG has already perfected their software and is now moving to Oreo, and don't tell me they don't have as much features as Samsung; most of their features are about the same as Samsung's yet they work much better at times.
And those features you're being proud of with Samsung? Not even 20% of them are used by those people who are using their devices.
If I want a feature now, I'd wait for Google to implement it as it always works so much better on stock than skinned version
AnonD-703680, 21 Jan 2018If that means nothing for you , then this means something...
https://m.gsmarena.com/nokia_8-r... moreNokia 8 is crap no matter what.Just compare it with the Galaxy a8+(2018) and we all know which phone most people will buy.
Btw the Galaxy a8+ is a very bad deal but has a better camera,better screen and more ram for the same price.Nokia 8 losing to a phone which is considered bad means the Nokia 8 is shit.
Now days, all phone are only meant to be trend to see which is hot or not. And for last year, even the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S8/Note 8, Razer or OnePlus 5 and Google pixel 2 XL wasn't the best phone if 2017, Nokia 6 (2017) is the most fan favorite, durable(jerryrigeverything) and the most popular phone of 2017!!! [Despite of it's terrible camera and processor]
You all haters, I repeat you all haters crap gimmick, better think properly before saying bullshits to Nokia. ( Not to me ah, don't even try to mess up with me!!!!)
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2018Biggest gimmicks ever 1) dual edge screen 2) iris scanner that can be fooled by pictures... moreWhich camera was that picture taken with? Resolution must be 10000MP if it managed to capture your iris
ProJames, 21 Jan 2018It means nothing... People can love crap just fine.

Sony Xperia Fan, 21 Jan 2018Most Powerful SoC and Best video recording capabilities: iPhone 8/8 Plus/X
Slowest Android up... moreI have to disagree with some of the statements.
Samsung WAS the slowest to update. but it got better.
base device of apple is 650-700$, many samsung flagships are AROUND 720$ (true to launch time only) at base. (not to mention Note if you're really onto the big guns. 900~$)
most compact is the SE. but the best compact. I have to agree.
the last one: LMAO
[deleted post]Software with most bugs and force closes - Samsung
Worst camera - Razer, Essential
Hottest phone(temperature) - Razer
Bezel king and yet fragile - iphone 8 duo
Worst UI(no uniformity) - LG
Most useless gimmick - edge screen
There, fix it for ya

Actually as long as there are space and battery le... moreWell said!
[I did have an experiment with my friend's XZP. (I own the note 8 btw) and amazing. it's crazy! it does record an immense length (And superb quality too!) of 4k video!]
The reason I am not using Sony device. is because of the awkward navbar. and I'm too lazy finding a mod for that.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2018Link of 512 GB iphone please, I need to see that. there was a time. when apple thought to make a 512 GB device. the chip DOES exist though. but not in any iDevice. (P.S. Android camp member)
https://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_8_will_come_in_64gb_256gb_and_512gb_flavor-news-26900.php Old news. I know. but the possibility of a half TB device is certainly possible.
Ed, 21 Jan 2018I wanna buy iPhone X 512 GB! Unfortunately. it doesn't exist. but MAYBE the X2 will have 512 GB of storage.
Heh. Meeeeeeemmooorrriiees!!!! The N8 was the best phone I had. until it suicided.. (and still IS!)
Dual front speakers, highest rate. waterproof IP65/IP68.
Stacked DRAM camera sensor.
Quality sealed battery.
4K HDR display with 1080p scaling.
8 antenna designs without any antenna lines.
Well deserved for Nokia N8. I myself left a ton of comments there, and I still have it as second phone. They don't make them like this any more.
AnonD-703680, 21 Jan 2018Nokia 8 is crap uh...
It is the 3rd most liked phone in GSMarena.It means nothing... People can love crap just fine.

[deleted post]Hey, dude. Xperias has come a long way. All those things you speak of are from the past. The most useless gimmick is getting picked up by Samsung with their 1000 fps slowmo. There are way more useless gimmicks out there but I'm not gonna get into that.
