in the Htc desire you have an additional qwerty keyboard and additional multi touch imput method... but is much slower when it comes for touch sensivity...
you might like the 16 gb internal memo, but the HTC beats it in RAM's, not a big deal as the N8 can handle about 23 apps (and i mean really heavy apps) because his hardware are really good...
you will probably find a great advantage with nokia N8 where it comes to GPS because of the free navigation from nokia... believe my words... these ones are great... and the usb on the go and 3.0 bluetooth... these stuff are awesome!!!
camera.. no talking, N8 beats the shit out of every phone out there!!! 12mp i mean hell!!! and 720p video, that is great!!!! ok, desire is good with 5, but nthg like the N8!!!
in the operating system, one just can't talk about them, it come to how you think.. i like symbian, others like android, what can you do?!
you have one more thing in nokia N8, the anodized aluminium casing, very beautiful and resisting....
battery about the same, but the Htc is much much more money.. there is about 200$ difference right now...
my final recommandation.. nokia N8... the best in here!!!!!
N8 gooooo... well so far
jayson, 21 Dec 2010which phone is better htc desire or the nokia n8?please help me choose.um gonna help you a bit when choosing any of the phones um gonna list and the N8, so that no one has to ask any thing about it any more, and each one will come in a different box: iphone 4, htc desire, htc hd2, samsung galasxy S, and the brand new Lgoptimus 2x. look out for them as they get on the go.. the first one, HTC desire, will come in some minutes... look out...
Bought N8 on 13th dec this month,not even start to use it aft charge and keep restart by itself so have to send to service ctr,and it still sitting in service ctr awaiting for motherboard to arrive to change it...why nokia QC are so poor nowadays,and cant even do a replacement even thou the motherboard is faulty..really disappointed with nokia service..hopefully they can do something bout it nor sooner or later more people will turn to other brand.
seriously... dumbdroid may have all the games but could you use all of them?. about 14,000 you download in a single day you could only play 5 games atm.
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2010give the link from where u get all these crap kindly then only will we believe u guys. got tha... moregive the link from where u get all these crap kindly then only will we believe u guys. got that clear?? picking a comment from nokia blog doesnt support ur facts. provide the links from where u get these info
-have you tried using google? google it.. those are facts, from the experience of a customer like me. nokia blog europe. try to read..
for future n8 owners, i think u should put a stop on the purchase until new firmware is out. if it is fine, then consider about it again or else wait for Meego to be released. just to give some suggestion to save ur money.
N8 Lover S, 22 Dec 2010Then what do you use? Idiot OS? That's pathetic, dude. You cannot even move a step without usi... moreno its not apple ios either actually i think u r the lil kid here thats y u r jst assuming things n barking!!
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2010m not using android!so i can install apps on sd card.,Then what do you use? Idiot OS? That's pathetic, dude. You cannot even move a step without using the PC Software (iTune). Tell me, is it true that you need to connect your phone to your PC/Laptop to send/recieve a file? HAHAHAHA... Pathetic!!! Pleasssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeee, don't make me laugh anymore. Dude, tell me, do you put your music player and radio on the background and call that multitasking? HAHAHAHA... Pathetic!!! Pleasssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeee, don't make me laugh anymore. Dude, go play games, cause you haven't grown yet. For us, the grown ups, games are just time pass, to relax our mind, not to bash people about the scores.
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2010dude,u can edit song title in file manager bt nt in music player.ûDude, you're getting it wrong here. I was talking about the ID3 tag here, which contains the data of the song, such as song name, artist, album name, track number, year released, length etc. You can change (edit) the tag in mp3 format, wma format. I said that in N8 you can't. If you change your songs ID3 according to the song, the details are shown in the screen when you play the song.
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2010only 84??hahaOk, say you have 14,000 games in your android market. You win. But tell me, how many will you play? How many is worth spending your time? Say 140 games. That is 1% of your total number of games, dear. Again, say you proved me wrong, there are 5% (700) games worth playing. How many will you be able to install in your ANDROID MOBILE? I can assure you, your mobile phone's memory will be full before you can count 100, because your mobile CANNOT install games in the extended memory. Sorry dear, YOU LOSE!!!
I have found a few things about N8. Please note that these things are minor problems to me, but might be a bigger problem for some people.
1. N8 CANNOT change the song details from inside. You have to edit the ID3 tags outside the phone & then copy them into N8.
2. N8 CANNOT create new equaliser presets in music player. Though I don't miss it much, but for some people it might matter.
3. When you are browsing the file manager, if you quickly press the camera shutter button halfway, the search option pops up. This was a good idea of NOKIA. I even didn't find it in anywhere, so I though I should share it with you guys.
The N8 is a slow phone. Look at this phone http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsMsdQvGBwU
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2010I wanna buy n8 but i am confused whether to buy N97 or N8If you want to stick with nokia, go for N8-the best cameraphone there is as of now, otherwise go for android.
raj, 22 Dec 2010which one is better?????? noka n8 or sony vivaz.....As a cameraphone, go for N8. As a great overall phone, I would recommend high end android devices.
