kodn, 19 Dec 2010The number of available apps in the market....How many of them are actually useful in real life situations?
deep space bar, 18 Dec 2010what's so amazing about droidOS or iOS The number of available apps in the market....
Hey guys, will you quit this N8 Vs Others argument please, For iPhone or Droid users, ya N8 sucks a hard time.. For Nokia users, N8 is the best model released by Nokia yet. what the point in attempting to prove the device you use is the best. Please give your honest opinion here, so some one looking to find the suitable phone for him/her self can draw a strong opinion. Everything depends on the User.
For all the Symbian haters i tell you one thing, Some network operators out there in the world offer roaming SMS for nearly the local message cost using operator commands. Non of you can utilize that feature in your so called iOS or Android. Its a must for me coz i live US and still use my home network under roaming to send SMS. In US an international SMS cost $0.20 where i can send messages for just $0.04 using my roaming sim and Symbian phone. the So called iOS or Android fans will have no idea about what i'm talking.
Now i can argue that iOS and Android hold back the network operators from finding cheaper ways for effective roaming communication.
Hey Symbian fans, it will take ages for you to integrate your social contacts to your phone book, where in HTC sense for instance you just have to sign in to your Network and you will get all your contacts in your list and you can choose it to show or hide just like you choose for sim contacts.
Each person has their own need and preference for deferent platforms. So Please stop arguing and try to understand the facts.
Also for the guys who say N8 sucks and Nokia made a flowed device in terms of hardware and have no care for the users, Just remember they Agreed that they had a assembling error and they cover it by the warranty. They didn't say you hold your phone in a wrong manner or They didn't make a presentation every manufacturer make flowed devices.
And the guys who claim that nokia firmware and updates are not stable, just google for the HTC wildfire's wifi disable issue after a firmware update. Every phone has its pros and cons, the user should be able to make compromises between his needs and wants,there is an opportunity cost associated until custom made mobile phones are available in the market. if you want a camera in a phone which can out run most point and shoots and some DSLR's you need to sacrifice your fluid UI, you need a better browsing experience you need to sacrifice the camera or USB on the Go.
N8 is Nokia's Imaging flagship and it keeps its promise. a phone targeting imaging should have HDMI out, USB on the Go and all the features that N8 packs to make the shooting and sharing a breeze. Ya N8 missed the feature to share in your social network but that is fixed with new Social app and you always ave pixel pipe.
Now please don't say your grinder doesn't play music or your TV cant edit Word file, Comparing N8 to iPhone or Droids is just like that. iPhone targets the gaming, thats why they have gyroscope, Android targets the Social networks and browsing thats why they are excelling it, N8 targets the camera and its best at it. Thats it
[deleted post]to reach 1 million mark is like milestone for n8 haha!! no one likes n8 here

Anonymous, 19 Dec 2010but i sold 20 millions units lol!! haha 680MHz on N8 alone sucksand you have one? i presume you have nothing at all
Please buy samsung wave or moto defy if ip4 cost u alot. This ph is worst ever and I'm stuck with 24months contract now.
I just got it now, must say it is the best N model ever made. Wery happy with mine.
Positives are good build and call quality.
2-3 days battery life with moderate use.
Price sim free good value compared to IP4
Wifi has tendency to keep coming on, even after you have just turned it off - this happens to mine and I have read other opinions about this issue on Nokia site.
Nokia are bringing out a large firmware update that address these issue and also include big changes that can only improve what is a very good device already.
Overall, I recommend you get one!

i have my nokia n8 since october 23 here in Manila, Philippines. I'm the 34th over thousands who pre-ordered it. Since then, i love the phone. It froze less than 5 times since then,restarted 3 or 4 times. I didnt bother because its has a pre-release software. Nokia promised an update this december.
I like everythng abwt the ph0ne..and i bought it because of its CAMERA. It is hailed as the 'best cameraphone to-date' it has the LARGEST CAMERA SENSOR in m0bile ph0ne, XEN0N FLASH,and not an 'outdated LED' hdmi,usb on the go,am0led display, and the FREE NAVIGATI0N!
I dropped the phone twice and its like new,n0thing happens.
Wht i don't like about n8 is the traditi0nal on-screen keypad,i want a qwerty keyboard in landscape m0de! Laggy browser! That's all.
Iph0ne has 300,000 or m0re apps coz there a lot MISSING in the iphone! Example. Radio application,VIA wifi.hahaha.everythng is via wifi.like video calls.hahaha. Whereas in N8,it is built in and uses 3G! N8 can manage to transfr files via bluetooth,hw abwt d iph0ne?haha.
Iph0ne is useless without JAILBREAKING.
Iph0ne less the apps is what?
Fresh fr0m the b0x, n8 cn do m0re.hu cares abwt retina display. I got a 20-20 visi0n,and i see things perfctly even in a small screen like the n0kia 8310 b4.
C0mpare the functi0nalities of the ph0ne fresh fr0m d b0x. Coz d0wnloading apps is a user-based ch0ice..
Cn s0me0ne here,d0wnloaded atleast 1,000 apps in the 'app store?' hahaha.and st0res all of it in their iph0ne?haha.
baught it last week and sold it 2 days after.
It's a nice gadget outside (good aluminium housing...that's it)
The camera is not as expected, doesn't match the sony ericsson satio or samsung pixon 12 camera.
Just a waste of money.
I'll never buy a Nokia phone (symbian OS is outdated)
it's away behind iOS or android and the new WP7 is much better too.
