Gitty, 25 Dec 2010NPD and other sellers are guiding buyers not to buy N8,I knew it when I went back to the place... moreAre you sure? I think they highly recommend you to buy it cos it is a good product which is different and hardly encounter the problms.

But for entertainment,gaming,taking pictures,vid recording and web surfing I like N8 best among them.
Nokia N8 to get a firmware update in January 2011, says Nokia India
Source : http://forum.symbianfile.com/index.php/topic,116.0.html
I got my N8 almost 6 days ago; this phone is extremely powerful cellphone, it really in a level to compete with iphone. I was lucky to have mine as a second batch, and it does not have any problem so far , only it restarted once and hanged once and this was due to the over limit multi-tasking which I did in purpose to test the ability of the phone and to know experimentally the limit of the processor.
This is my experience summary about my N8:
1- Simbian^3 is a very powerful improvement to Nokia’s history, it is really fast. The processor is working fast even with such a good operating system.
2- Multi home screens and widgets are very powerful feature.
3- Contacts list had improved very well.
4- Messaging and Social networks had improved very much.
5- Photos and Videos editor had received a very excellent improvement.
6- Web browser is very fast in the second batch (Same speed as Opera 10).
7- The music player was improved very much (since the N73).
8- The GPS was improved, and connects quickly to satellite.
9- The ability to assign different themes to each profile mode is a very cool feature.
10- The screen visibility and quality is very good even under direct sunlight.
11- Sound quality is very good (however if it had 2 speakers like my N73, it would be a good addition).
12- The ability to use USB keys is very powerful, and I really enjoyed using this feature.
13- USB charging is very good, I wish Nokia standardize it in all its new phones.
14- HDMI connection is a very extent addition, especially when you do have a BT mouse and keyboard with the HDTV home theatre one, as if you are using your laptop.
15- Gaming experience is very good, especially if you connect it to TV with the HDMI.
16- OVI store offers a good pack of apps, hopefully it will expand in the near future.
1- Simbian^3 is little bit sophisticated.
2- No customized equalizer in the music player (I don’t like the Nokia standard equalizer sets).
3- The FM transmitter does not support the GPS voice guidance, only music player.
4- The WiFi widget has some problems to turn off the WiFi (It is not a one step process; I wish Nokia fix it quickly).
5- When watching a movie, the menu key does not dim or turn off, I should hide it with my hand.
6- Only 3 home screens (I wish it has n number of customizable home screens).
7- Keyboard is very retarded in the vertical mood (multi letter for each key is not likely to exist with touch screens, they should replace it with a full keyboard mood even with the number rows).
8- Keyboard is very tight in the horizontal mood (Also it is confusing for the people who used to use S60^5th ed touch) [I wish if the numbers are displayed in the top as a fourth row, as my language (Arabic with English letters) has numbers as equivalent missingletters in the English alphabet, so it is painful to such back and forth between number mood and letter mood].
9- Only the Nokia default languages are the only set of languages for the phone (I hope one day, Nokia allow customers to select their suitable language packs, as the screen is touch and Nokia will not need to customize a set of letters on numerical pads as in N73).
10- The camera is 2x zoom only (I wish that extended zoom could be applied to boost it up to 6x with the 3 mp resolution as it was in the N73 when selecting less resolution option we get more zoom). Also there is no way to silent the camera sound nor the red light of the capture, my Samsung digital camera has it. Also no sequence picture support.
11- The display resolution is poor; more pixels would make it better. I know that a higher resolution means a faster processor, means a much powerful battery.
12- Battery life is not enough (One day with high usage. ie. music & GPS all the day + some Wifi).
13- 16 gb is not enough specially with apps that can reach over 100mb in the near future.
14- The speaker position on the back cover is not good, when the phone is on the table, the sound is blocked.
15- The plastic covers of the top and bottom is a big disadvantage (it could break for sure if it felt on its tip), as it would be better if it was aluminum and leave the top black part only plastic for the antenna functionality, or merge the antenna in the casing body as in the iphone.
All in all, this phone is a good step from Nokia in its learning and improving experience, I would like Nokia to learn from the costumer’s experience, and listen to their suggestions and requests for improvements. Nokia is Nokia I know, but learning from “others” will save Nokia time and money to improve and to be creative in adding new ideas instead of being just in the average area.
