Of course android has a dedicated menu button (Not to confuse with home button) to bring up those extra options and press and hold works in many areas to bring up even more commands like copy/paste or open in new tab in web browser and so on. Yet N8 does what we expect it to do, its neither the god nor the garbage and it is certainly one of the best smart phone and "the best" camera and multimedia (added to the multimedia capability "nokiabigscreen") phone yet.
I love the long touch feature of the n8 that brings up various options. Can someone tell me if android has this feature?
Hey guys, go and grab the Nokia big screen app from betalabs, Its a new media hub for N8 and E7 with a loads of new feature to make your phone a true portable home media player. With an improved UI and an updated video player with subtitles and added codec support. It is an app to make your HDMI experience richer.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2011My friend is returning his n8. He said it's laggy, and it's web browser is frustrating to use... more All this talk of the N8 being laggy I don't understand, as I've not experienced anything significant like that.
The browser is a pain, but it has been fixed now, so your friend could have waited for the fix.
As for removing the battery, why would he need to?
I've read quite a few comments and questions about removing the battery but I honestly can't understand why anyone would want to.
All the best.

Yeah i... moreRefresh the Library by entering options in music player after the removal of the files. If you want to delete a music file from the phone, better to delete it from music player so that it also gets deleted from the library.

This would remove the deleted songs or if not, just delete the song from the playlist, then refresh after.
My friend is returning his n8. He said it's laggy, and it's web browser is frustrating to use. It froze on him a couple of times already and he said it's a pain to remove the battery. He's looking into getting an andoid phone.
I'm using N8 for 2 month know. I'm pleased with it. Great camera,display and stable os. Yeah it's not eye candy like iOS, or Android, but works fine, and saves battery. With moderate usege(wifi 30min, games 1h, music at least 1h /day) it lasts for 3 days. Try that with the others above. Restarts, dropped calls? never happend. I do experianced one issue though. There are some files that I can't remove from music player playlist. mp3-s are removed from the phone, but still uppear in the playlist. Tried to add & delete them again no luck. Does someone have a solution for that?

Anonymous, 07 Jan 2011u all were saying symbian is a mature os!now wat??cant even download the old apps?
wave now... moreActually you can install old symbian software from 3rd and 5th editions just fine. A lot of the apps available in ovi store for the N8 are 5th edition apps anyway. The ones that are not available yet will be pretty soon when someone at Nokia has the time to test them for Symbian^3 compatibility.
If you can't wait for them, just download them yourself and try them out.
