I dont get it yes I am using a nokia N8 now and I have been using it for over a month now and its what I am using to post this opinion I dont get it when people give bad comments on this phone,yes it lags once in a while and freezes rearly but its the beat overall a joy to have and there are 3 N8s in my house and they are all working fine.N8 is simply the best
Updating software on most Nokia phones were simple and easy. Recently I was updated a SE Xperia X8 software - I found that it's complicated, plug in then eject USB port repeatedly again n again etc. and the process was too slow, it took several hours to get completed, so boring man.
Already use N8 for 1 and half month with no protective plastic sheet (had been removed since the day one), no screen guard attached, no leather or any case, just put it directly inside my pant's pocket everyday and there's no even a single scratch on my N8 screen, truly amazing scratch-resistant gorilla glass.

I own an Android device and though I could customize to my hearts content, stock Android still sucks for Email & Music. S^3 is better is both cases
I own an N900, and the N8 is just so much more refined, even though Maemo 5 is more to my liking even than S^3
I have an iPod Touch, so I have a great deal of iOS apps, but I consider this a toy, and really the poorest of the big 3, since you are basically stuck with whatever mr Jobs tells you to use.
Nokia, the N8 and S^3 are a complete and utter win.
I do recommend everyone to use this app http://store.ovi.com/content/62867
it works a lot smoother than a hierarchy of folders (which I do like for storage, but not for navigating)
And I also recommend to disable all theme effects. This greatly speeds up the homescreens. I have had people in the store amazed because all of the "lag" was gone. It isnt lag actually, but part of the theme effect. Disabling this changes your homescreens to swich immediately and quickly. Faster than I could do it on my Android device!
I hate nokia india for increasing price of nokia n8 by 1000 rupees.

apart from the very bad grammar, your reasoning is seriously flawed
If say you buy an ... more... yes , i always buy nokia phones , i know its expensive first , and i usually wait several months for the price drop ,
but as i said , i paid the big money cause i didnt wanna wait and i got screwed big time so i will never buy early again and i dont plan on buying nokia due to the extreeeemly poooooor attitude and customer service ....
if u gonna use ur phone for long term plz dont buy this crap
they just ripping off money indirectly from their vi store keeping high end phone price same as b4
when N8 promo came out from nokia over youtube
i was so excited that nokia brought something adorable
and all previews of n8 were pretty impressive
then i thought it could be a good one for everything
what i want is good touchscreen,multimedia and good camera phone
first of all touch screen is far good than those resistive nokia screens b4 but not really as good as other competative phones becuz of lag.
music quality is very good and same for video
but processor is pretty outdated one same was used in iphone 3gs i think.
good multimedia phone needs multitasking which is there on N8 but where is RAM ? (memory)
games are laggy some places.
and NO GYRO ?
then i saw iphone 4 which was also good to look
but antenna issues + glassgate.
finally samsung galaxy was really good even though its camera maynot be like n8.
i dont know why nokia dont change symbian.
even cost of apps are high on ovi store OMG compared to apple's appstore and android marketplace
angry birds on apple app store is 1 dollar while on ovi store is 2 EUROS !!
even many apps like soundhound etc etc
bye bye nokia forever
Recently got my nokia N8 and I love it.....
great camera, vedio recording is good....
nice reception, ya beetry life is not that long . in a week its hang only once while using you tube with lots of application in background.
Abhishek Chaterjee, 18 Dec 2010 It's not that Nokia thinks Indians are dumb people; let's be real, whether they lower the pr... moredont think or say like that .. I think you are also indian then try to improve india.. India is a highly dynamic country it has many rich to many poor people many religion and caste many languages and many dumb to many intelligent people... Dont say stupid thing about your own origin country... Try to improve it and dont tease others misfortunes ...
zooz, 17 Dec 2010hey man ...depends how you use it but maximum 2 days i thinkwhich means if i wont use it, it will last for 2 days? is that so? what if I will keep on using it? how long would it be? and, how long should I recharge it?
thanks by the way :)
N8 Lover S, 18 Dec 2010You can say that n97 was crappy, but if you say that n86, n85, n73 was crappy, then you know N... morei think you are nokia addict ... I know some many people who suffered from there nokia models ... I am not saying that these models were bad but quality was very bad. Some got good one and some got faulty one..i am saying that quality checking in manufacturing is very bad.. And most of the nokia users have to update software hard reset backup their data etc ie most their life they spend in the maintenance of their phone so phone becomes part of their life like their wife.. And they become nokia addict...i am also one of them like you...i am also going for n8 for that camera and lets hope i get good one
everyone UPDATE your OVI maps NOW you will be VERY impressed
GPS lock is 2-5 secs
UI is smoother
orientation is quicker
HOLY man i'm busting a nut over this small update
i love what nokia is doing with these micro updates for their applications
if ovi maps is this solid and it's still in beta the finished and final version will crazy fast and have super slick features
you will not be dissapointed with this update at all
i guess this was a spit in the face to google and their google half @ss maps application
Hi, the n8 is really not worth the money. I bought one on sept 12th, the day it released in india. 10 days later the phone hang when i used the slide unlock. Nokia replaced the phone 2 weeks later, that phone wouldn't even come on. Then 15 days later, they again replaced it with a phone which wouldn't read any sim card. In the end i asked for my money back and am determined to never make the mistake of buying a high end nokia phone again
the real thing n8 is a problem phone.. it wont last more than 6months. dont be fooled by nokia's marketing strategy. they've spend alot promoting the phone but then their laying off 2000 workers. most of them in the symbian group,see symbian is a mess..
