my n8 is getting hanged and then getting switched off, when i try to capture hd videos in noisy areas like in a marriage party where the dj sounds are very high. Is there any other n8 user who is facing the same problem. Is there any way to stop this problem. Please reply. Thanks
after installing kaspersky my n8 switch off.tried factory reset, it didnt work.nextday i went to nokia care centre and they asked me to wait for 1 day and next day they told me to replace it from the shop where i bought it.ihave to wait for 4days before i got my n8 replaced.new n8 is working fine but i am scared to install third party software except those from ovi store.the camera is great. the video, touchscreen,multitasking,hd game etc are all good except that iam still scared what if it shut down again.the worse part is shopkeeper tried not to replace it even after nokia care had given me the slip for replacement.

where are you getting this from XD
your a funny guy
symbianOS is the most mature OS on the market
it's only a few N8 with the problem
a firmware update will fix those things
and just because symbianOS is not bleeding eye candy doesn't mean it's a good OS
N8 is NOT a good phone and it can NOT compete with the top Android phones. Symbian3... is completely useless and even Nokia admits that, and if MeeGo was ready they would not use Symbian on any "flagship-model". N8 have serious hardware-problem.
We "hate" N8 because Nokia-fans try to compare it with far better phones, and their lies about N8-perfection makes many buyers waste money on buying it.
N900 is/was a great phone, and unfortunatly N900 still is the best phone Nokia have ever made. N97 and N97 mini was probably the worst phones ever, and without the rather good camera and the still mostly pointless but unique USB-on-the-GO N8 would be just is bad as N97, but the fatal hardware-problems on N8 could still make N8 the worst phone ever if it turns out to be more than "just a few" phones that have this problem.
Official Skype app finally available for N8! Should also work for E7 and C7.
that sucks man i know how you feel... mine did the same thing and it wouldnt turn back on at all i tried charging it for a week strait and nothing happened so i had to ship it back ... only problem was that nokia doesnt have international Warranty and i bought it off ebay so i had to ship it back to the guy that sold it to me to ship it to get fixed hopefully all goes well though... i heard that if you got one of the first N8s that they made then nokia said they had some defects and are willin to switch it you are for sure not the only one having that problem ... so i guess just call them and ship it back and hope for the best .
please guy can any one tell me c7 or n8 it is good no problem whis hem thx
Have to wait til i get my n8. My service provider advised me to wait for the second batch of n8, coz the first batch got the switch off then not switchin on again. Looking forward to the n8
Anonymous, 11 Dec 2010Are you sure about this post below that you just flashed? Are you a developer or just a user? ... moremaybe specs come in to play on this one
i know XP is fast at booting
but windows7 vs ubuntu 10.10
we are comparing cause they are both the most recent versions of the OSs
and ubuntu 10.10 mangles windows7 in every way except gaming which is a given

Are you a developer or just a user? Hell, you circumvent all the facts by posting this stupid nonsense and make it look like you know a lot. Will you please stop this jargons and concentrate on your English? Real software engineers do not comment on this forum like you did. Bottomline: software that can make use of a processor effectively are the most efficient ones overall. It's a symphony of software and hardware. And... nothing's perfect.
"You are spreading misinformation. Im a many years debian linmux user, i dont even dual boot, coz i dont need windows (but i have it in vmware..). But saying linux is faster in any PC is wrong. Its not. WinXP has proved to be just as fast as debian lenny, and is MUCH faster than Ubuntu..."
