I like the N8 much better then most devices out there but there are still issues that could have been perfected but you didn't.
I'm not even going to begin with the OS. Just the basics enough that stopped me from purchasing this phone.
1. non-replaceable battery.
-Having nice camera and video specs is completely useless when paired with poor interface and NO BATTERY REPLACEMENT!
-In the awkward event of WATER accident, having a removable battery is a MUST.
-Removable batteries and covers HELPS! As it falls apart when absorbing impact when a phone is dropped.
2. No equalizer settings for the audio player.
3. Whoever designed the ergonomics. FAILED.
The phone is genuinely thought of as sub par or ugly when compared to the Iphone4.
I'll wait for your next phone. Untill then, gonna be using an older Nokia that has a replaceable battery.
Nokia N8 SydneyTrial
Can anyone in Sydney advise on a phone store and location where i can get my hands on a working N8 to trial onsite ?
Guys I have a problem with my N8. I bought it two weeks back and the Sim card is not ejecting properly. I need to pull the Sim card from the Sim slot only using a pin. Does anyone has the same problem and how to rectify it? Pls advice.

I have tried unsuccessfully for the past 3 weeks to try out a working Nokia N8 at different handphone shops around Singapore. Sad to say, I went to 3 different places and all the N8s were out of order. I even visited one shop on 2 separate occasions only to find out from the store manager that he had already returned 2 sets to Nokia because they failed to work within a couple of days. What a marketing disaster! The sad thing is that the display stand is very nicely made up with the N8 connected to a LCD panel but unfortunately, the phones were not working. In contrast, the iPhones in the same shops were placed on a very simple stand and at all 3 shops, the iPhones were in perfect working condition. What a bad start to a new beginning!
This is the Nokia N8 forum. As you have posed such an easy question i will answer it. I assume you have used the compare function, using the Nokia N8 v 3GS and this has not made the picture any clearer.
If I have assumed correct then just for you Sameer_roi (in all other cases I would have no hesitation in suggesting the nokia N8!) I know that your telephony purposes would be best suited if you went for the 3GS (please future commentators I state 99.9999995% NOKIA N8) but sameer-roi deserves the 3GS ok!
hi, can anyone suggest me shall i go with n8 or apple 3GS im in very big dilemma...And how is its browsing speed compare to apple..? pls reply me soon..
curious me, 14 Dec 2010Can anyone suggest any better phones of the same price range with this one?? It's not that I h... moreHi
yes I can clik on the "related phones" icon this gives you a list of similar phone. Take this to the local store and see if the price they are asking is similar!
As I don't know which part of the world you are and this computer screen is blocking my sight. then the wall behind it...and then
your post make no sense whatsoever. If i was't bored i would have asked for it to be deleted
When you say better does that mean your phone was sick?
trying to be wise and actually being wise is .... look what do you like and go for it. but please never be outsmarted by a smart phone" and dont worry the Nokia N8 doesn't hate you either
"Can anyone suggest any better phones of the same price range with this one?? It's not that I hate N8 it's just that I'm trying to be wise :)
