you can check this
The N8 uses Xenon flash for stills but why didn’t you include an LED solution for video?
To get sufficient illumination from an LED solution over a usable distance today, you need to use dual LED. Current generation single LEDs provide little more than a tick box on a spec sheet. Unfortunately, we simply had insufficient space for Dual LED as well as Xenon, the area around the camera is packed very tightly already.
I know some of you will say you’d rather the device was a few mm’s thicker, etc. but it’s very important to balance the design against the functionality, otherwise people will say it’s ugly which will influence its appeal. But we we’re always listening to market feedback and therefore continue to try and develop the perfect solution. But for some, it’s just not possible. In a world of over 6.5 billion people that’s hardly surprising.
It is an extract from Nokia communications, You can find a lot of design decisions there if you wish. Also this topic is discussed there over and over again and many people has suggested for a Video light accessory, and Damion Dining has given a positive response to it
(This is the most crucial mistake Nokia has done to N8. Even though it’s a multimedia monster, everything’ll be useless if the quality of Music is poor…) Besides, Music player doesn’t support Custom/manual presets…! (Ridiculous decision from Nokia stupid software Engineers…!)
Sun, 05 Jan 2011Guys, how to watch you tube in full screen ?What app are you using for youtube? try the official youtube app from google's mobile site, m.google.com any video played will open in full screen, if you are using the browser then double taping on the video launch it in full screen, it may be tricky sometimes since the double tap also used to zoom

speaker is as big as the camera(as i remember, i saw the n8 stripped down few months ago)
i might be wrong, just guessing u know :P
hiya.. just want to know, does the nokia n8 come with a stylus??
guys do anyone know how to connect it to wifi at a network, at home I can connect it but when I go to school and connect it there it connect but does not have internet and says invalid server name though when I use my laptop it connects smoothly
Ali Abdulla, 05 Jan 2011they should of put dual led in the speakers place... and put the speakers in a MUCH better ... moreHmm, Camera compartment of N8 is already few mm high in thickness, its not a good idea to place Dual LED there. Again Nokia's priority goes to antenna location, arrangement of internal components, magnetic shielding and stuffs, Finally we miss Video Light and the High quality 5800 Speakers (N8 has aloud but mono speaker)
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2011Nokia omitted the video light to make the device slim. If you want an useful video light it ha... morethey should of put dual led in the speakers place...
and put the speakers in a MUCH better place..
so basically fix two problems and create a new one
"where the hell to place the speakers now? :P"
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2011why does nokia always give you a xenon flash but no led video light a bright video light like ... moreNokia omitted the video light to make the device slim. If you want an useful video light it has to be a Dual LED, Single LED's are useless, But there was no way to place a dual LED in already crowded arrangements (large sensor, Xenon Flash, and Flash capacitor (its big), amber LED for auto focus assistance). The low light video performance is good in N8 even without the Light thanks to the large sensor and Nokia's smart usage of Full sensor capability to do HD video.
Next Imaging Flagship will hit the market in 2012 with true zooming (Many people say true zooming means optical zooming but i guess it is going to be a developed version of the smart zooming) February may see some Meego announcement. Who knows what Nokia's Imaging team has got to deliver next.
I just found out that the Galaxy S and other Android phones do play .mpg files. I thought the N8 had the capability of playing most kinds of video and sound file types; especially something as common as .mpg.
why does nokia always give you a xenon flash but no led video light a bright video light like on the n86 would of made this phone complete but over all the best touch screen phone i c on the market when the software is updated it will be the best i mean firmwar update with better web browsing and better i want to buy one but the negatives change my mind i will wait till february nokia might bright out the successor to this n8 maybe 16 or 15 mega pixel with video light go nokia
anytime i look at your updated products page, i feel so sad - no future for you
you are no more a matching fighter with SS,iphone, LG . . which are so creative and fast pace at eating your pie..
what have you been achieved lately ?

hi friends.....visit youtube and type....... (nokia n8 vs htc desire)(3parts).....and watch n8 way behind htc desire.....iam an android fan...im happy to own my htc desire and wildfire.... n....is crap...luv u all cya
i wanted to experience andriod and so bought samsung galaxy 3.
First of all a very bad phone, worst battery also.
I found symbiam to be better because of ease of use, sym 3 is very near to making the software touch optimised. It has drastically improved over s60. I think future updates should take care of it.
