for a week of using N8, i can say it is a superb phone! lots of novelties as expected for symbian running OS, it's better from the other nokia touch phones, it's capacitive, strong build and it definitely says about the specification, not to mention the main part of the phone which is the camera, which produces splendid picture quality as well as vivid HD video, the one speaker below the camera is good, it's just when you place on a surface that is soft or covered, you won't hear it, but not that bad. I'm a nokia fan, but i also think there are other great phone on their field of expertise, you just have to know what you really like/want on everyday situation, for me, i like watching video and taking photos, and N8 is the best i can think of, with other minor thing i do, i don't have problem doing it with my N8
The Nokia N8-00 include NFC (Near Field Communication)functionality or it will be added on new model N8-01 ???
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2011hope our grandsons will be alive to see that day... u guys think urselves to be too smart righ... moreTry using Android phone like Galaxy S or Desire HD- and see yourself how poor Nokia is compared to them..in ease of use, performance etc. Apps are way too expensive compared to droids. Thinkfree office is absolutely free on droid while nokia has poor *i don't even remeber name* office for £ 8-10! In short as of now Nokia sucks.

Chad, 07 Jan 2011terrible phone. bad cpu, bad os, good camera but low resolution screen, still on 640*360? have... moreN series are different from Xpress music series, the stereo speakers are for XM series. So not a single fool out there would expect it on a N series device. Single mono speaker in N8 is far better than many speakers of competition devices, and its on par in clarity, loudness and sound reproduction with the 5800 speakers (the only difference is 5800 is stereo and N8 is mono).
terrible phone. bad cpu, bad os, good camera but low resolution screen, still on 640*360? haven't you heard of WVGA? And where is the second speaker? I mean nokia make too many stupid stereo speaker phones, why one only in N8?
Rick, 07 Jan 2011I love the long touch feature of the n8 that brings up various options. Can someone tell me if... moreHi Rick, don't get me wrong, The long tap came to Symbian in 2010 (universally, of course it was made its first/cameo appearance in mail app for S^1 in late 2009), but it was present in WinMo from 2002/2003 may be. 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.

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?
