MdN, 22 Aug 2013I wasn't even planning to get a memory card soon, as 16 GB is quite enough for now, but... Tod... moreIs it true that if you put a big memory card into your phone it slows it down and may even cause it to hang? The store clerk convinced me to put in a 16GB instead of a 32GB when I was adamant I wanted one. The transaction ended up involving everybody around. They all felt I could not fill the 16GB on the phone far less a memory card too. I don't know. They made it sound as if 16 GB is a humongous size but to me it sounds like a little bit. Maybe it is being real adventurous to put a 64GB into your phone. I won't have the nerve for that.
Have you noticed how accurate the Voice Recorder is? I felt it was so useless to have downloaded 2 audio guitar tuners that I decided to fix that! I searched the web and got a good audio tuner on my PC. I recorded it off the speaker and presto. I deleted the 2 apps. I really can't tell the difference if by chance it is a little off (which I doubt). Ever recorded something and when you try to play along with the same guitar that you recorded, they sound totally different? That is the pits! Or you're trying to figure out the chords from a recording and you're hearing one thing on the recording and another key on the guitar? That is a mental adjustment nightmare. I'm so glad that the phone's Voice Recorder has eliminated that problem for me. Shush! I don't know how to download a video, never tried.

Today I had a chance to get a 16 GB Transcend, Class 10, for a nice price, and I bought it. Works right away, loaded some videos, no problems. Now my memory is doubled and I have so much free space in my phone I'm afraid it will fly away like a balloon. :-)

Though, myExplorer is a very good app for accessing the pc via wifi is not quite as good as x-plore when it comes to manage files in your phone (at least, not for for me) i tried them all and x-plore is the only app offering a full potential file manager with a great, fast, handy UI.

My Belle wish list is getting longer & longer as I dither over upgrading. I think I'll post my N8 to MdN or Carol and let either of them do it for me :-) so if my baby dies during the operation they can resuscitate it immediately. You're quite a rascal huh? Lying and making us laugh. Well, I certainly cracked up. I'm sure it was taken in good spirit :-). And BTW, every N8 is special – don’t think the android evangelist that loves coming here will appreciate that statement.

as for my n8 speaking capabilities, well, i lied, of course it speaks but i said it to make that 'fearless' guy feel good for having the most special n8 ever, lololol :D

Hey! MyExplore is on my wish list. When I saw I could transfer files via wifi I thought it looked like a good one to get. Now, it seems like it is too advanced for me. I got no where tinkering with voice command. I ended up like Rad-K :-), talking to the phone and getting no answer:-) :-). I tried proposing too, but the guy wouldn't answer!!! The jerk! I'll try again tomorrow.
Rad-K, I really wish someone out there can help you. The only thing I can say (and maybe you saw it too) is that after Jan 2013, device software downloading will be possible only by using the latest software releases with service NOL login supported. Hope that makes sense to you. My vague interpretation is that you now have to log in somewhere if you want to download Belle Refresh. It used to be available elsewhere but Nokia stopped it. There MUST be a way to get it, surely.

Opens zip, rar, 7z and a few others. And I use it to exchange files through wifi between my PC and my phone. As for Refresh, did you try through Nokia Suite? Though, I talked to someone who still hasn't got Belle Refresh on his C7 even with Suite, so, it's all a bit weird. I suppose there are ways to get it unofficially if you're good with Phoenix...
A question for anyone who may know: is belle refresh update still available? I got it Ota when it was first launched, but i had to reinstall software and now it's gone.... My n8 is back at the 2011 symbian version and no 'Refresh' is shown anymore neither through regular updates app nor device manager updates option

SUDHAKAR, 19 Aug 2013Carol, Whats this? http://www.wondershare.com/android-manager/It is just a file manager. You can transfer files, copy paste, install uninstall and so on. Not something verrrry interesting. Would be good for ios (cause is a crap os and you cannot do that) but androcrap is a Symbian wannabe, so as far as i know you can do all of this without a special app... or?
Stupid me, 20 Aug 2013Oh mih Lord! I swear this is the most entertaining site. I can't stop laughing.
I'm going t... moreHave fun. :-) It recognizes commands as "camera" or "what time is it"... You can see the full list in Settings - Phone - Voice commands. Actually I just whisper "camera" and it turns the camera on... However, after that it doesn't react to "shoot" or "take a photo" or "snap!!!" so I guess it needs some improvement. :-)
Zedge is a website with ringtones, themes, wallpapers etc for mobile phones. I have a page there (with 700000 downloads and counting) and just thought you might want to continue the chat there as I could post more links but since you don't know what it is, never mind. ;-)
MdN, 20 Aug 2013Try adding the "Voice commands" shortcut to your home screen and you CAN talk to it,... moreOh mih Lord! I swear this is the most entertaining site. I can't stop laughing.
I'm going to check out what you mentioned and get back to you. Zedge sounds like something I should have, only thing is, I don't know what it is. I'll google it. There's some stuff on this page that I haven't got a clue about, like exFAT and FAT 32. Hm.
BTW. I looked at all the links and really enjoyed them.
Rad-K, 20 Aug 2013strange, i spoke to my n8 too but it didn't reply to me Try adding the "Voice commands" shortcut to your home screen and you CAN talk to it, and it will reply. :-D

Meanwhile, I'll stick with my wonderful N8.
well, everything said here was awsome. As for me, nokia N8 is stil the best and strongest phone i,v ever used, i,v real realy used defrent kinds of phone but N8 is somethings else. Sometimes i even speak to him and he replys me. He has become my friend and he never let me down,
Stupid me, 20 Aug 2013Hi MdN
Thanks for sharing that wonderful article with us! Your post was great too. What you... moreHey, thanks for reading. :-) I see there were 50 more comments since last night, all good. Hah, YouTube... my PC is sometimes too slow as well, so I mostly use my N8, the FastTube app. Or I download a video and watch it later on PC or N8, actually I prefer watching stuff on my N8 now. I don't have to sit in the same position and sometimes I just fall asleep on my bed watching something and wake up at 5 in the morning wondering what happened. :-) Some people wouldn't watch videos on 5-inch HD displays because they are "too small" but I'm watching movies and documentaries on my phone. Well I grew up with a black & white TV so maybe it's all a matter of perspective. :-) As for documentaries, I guess you can find most of them on YouTube, also there are National Geographic and CNN apps for Symbian, so it's not too bad. I tried some internet TV app too, but it was like "first check out this advertisement and then you can maybe watch the video" so I forgot it. Nokia internet radio works great, though.
Well it's a special phone with a story and people behind it. They just don't make them like this any more, there's a new "flagship" phone every 6 months, and most of them become forgotten when an upgrade comes with more cores. With the N8 it was more like "okay, enough is enough, it does everything I need fairly well so let's stop here". I like using it too, and that's more important than what the media or whoever thinks that we "should" be using. Btw, do you have a Zedge account? Just wondering. ;-)
