I just am being completely honest that I've never heard of this "purple" issue. My N8 apparently doesn't have it. And I'm on your side with this... I know full well how when something happens with Apple products the media storms all over it, but when its someone else's product nobody notices. I'm fully aware of this.

Good example how no-one dont care because it's nokia, if that same purple tint problem had found from iPhone, i'm sure it would be everywhere in web, but when nokia phones have it, most of people never heard about it. And sites doesn't even do news about it.
Write google: n8 purple tint or n8 purple screen, you can find many images/videos and forum posts about it.
“The most common complaint is that screens tend to display a purple tint over progressively darker areas of the screen. ”
So the problem is real, i have also seen X7 video where was purple tint on X7.
I do hope that the new iPhone 5 doesn't look like the prototype(I'm guessing) in the picture. That's one ugly looking phone in my opinion. Please Stevie, make it different.

YES.

S^3 is nowhere near Android ... moreYou keep slamming the N8 like its sole purpose in life was to compete against the iPhone and other Android devices. Dude, I can check email, browse the web, check Facebook, text, call, etc... AND take amazing photos (the best) and great high quality videos (with superior sound quality).. no problem. All of that on a device that you say is "inferior". So be it. Sorry but I'll keep my inferior device... since it does well at what it was designed to do.

I never said anything remotely related to "losing a phone". My comment was just simply my opinion nothing more. Besides I'm not usually the type to lose a phone.
AnonD-1082, 26 Jul 2011You're in denial. You must be a Nokia fanboy who won't tell the world about the wonderful bugs... moreI find it so disturbing that you thought it so important to post your name on here as "Nokia N8 Defects". Seriously??? Do you hate the N8 that bad? Did you have a bad experience with them? And sure if you look hard enough you can find defect videos on the internet for ANY phone. So by posting those means nothing... especially to those of us that actually use the N8 and find it to be a great phone.
Honestly this "purple screen" thing I've not experienced on my N8 so I have no idea what that is all about. You are the first person I've heard say anything.
The lag... yes the phone has some lag. But guess what... I had a Samsung Galaxy that lagged even WORSE! While on the subject... I would have apps force close on me all the time - without even getting into the app. All I'd do is go to start them and they'd close. They all open up fine on the N8.
The build quality is first rate. The video you posted the user obvious had a bad one. One of my friends got an iPhone with a loose switch. So does that mean they all are loose and suck? No. He took it back and they replaced it and the new one is solid as a rock.
Getting past all of that - you won't find a better camera on ANY PHONE out there today. The N8's 12mp Carl Zeiss camera is more than just a fancy name... its truly a wonderful camera. If you are really interested in capturing beautiful moments and couldn't care less about "dual core this" and "4.5 inch screen" etc then the N8 fulfills an awesome objective.
I'm not at all a Nokia fanboy but I do love this phone. I'm not the one that you original responded to but thought I'd reply anyhow since I happen to own this phone. No phone is perfect. I wasn't expecting perfection when I got it. I got it because I was sick of Android and wanted a simple interface. But to my surprise I got the best camera, along with a nice pleasant device that is built well and I'll use for a long time.

How do you explain these bugs caught on video?
And the world famous purple screen defect where dark colors appear as purple.
Not laggy eh? How do you explain this?
And how about the build quality? It creaks when you squeeze the plastic top.
How about the browser?

No not always.Some phones do not have high enough internal memory to store everything you have on your sd card so that does not allways apply

Even the 5800 from 2008 gets the Symbian Anna like browser update and some other good stuff. While some year old Android devices don't get even 1 update.

just my two cents

It can also do just about everything that an average Android can do.
maxwell, 26 Jul 2011I like it this way.. but I try your adviceif you do read the website you'll see that the 9900 is a blackberry maywell.
thanks for your advice, i've changed my mind and bought an ip 3g.

S^3 is nowhere near Android and iOS. It sucks so bad Nokia is abandoning it! It's rediculous. Nokia don't believe in S^3 and they know it cannot compete against modern OSes. Get an Android or the iPhone. You will be happier and you won't wait for your updates forever like you do on your inferior N8.
i know this is not nokia topic :( but now i hate nokia :( and i am in love with apple iphone :-) . yes iphone is pricey but no problem :-) one device one year :-) . and about symbian anna is great but nokia never care on symbian :( . now nokia only focused on microsoft :( . nokia n9 great device but if nokia release it befor one year with iphone 4 and galaxy s that time nokia n9 was 100 times better than ip4 galaxy s . but now no chance :(
apple :-) you won :-) really you are the best :-) . i am so mad with nokia still waiting for anna update for nokia n8 :( but nokia sleeping :( . why nokia always behind apple iphone ? nokia n97 and iphone 3gs comes same time in market :-) but n97 space so poor . n97 vs 3gs
434 CPU without GPU N97 and 128ram :( . 3gs 600 CPU and powerVXR GPU 256ram :-) . now n8 vs iphone 4
N8CPU 680 256ram :( poor GPU :( ip4 1ghz 512 powerfull GPU :-)
Mark my words apple fanboys, this iPhone will come with some genuine issues just like the 4 did and Steve Jobs will wave his Jedi hand in front of your faces and you will still line up to purchase it in droves.
Will it be elegant? Will it be fast? Will it be GOOD? Yes, Yes, and yes. Will it be overrated and overpriced? YES and YES.
AnonD-8153, 26 Jul 2011remember, istove aka iphone 5 is coming to town,,,, istove? So kinda like the samsung galaxy s 2 that overheats? And that article about the A5 was even listed as rumor, not fact. And if it was indeed true just remember... the iphone 5 is still technically in development. Just like any pre production product... there are always bugs to work out.
