I just got this phone last week and I noticed that it does have show some lags and unresponsive in some occasions (you need to multiple tap sometimes). I own an iPhone and I must say that some menus on the N8 is quite hard to find specially if you're a new user or haven't owned an Nokia phone (a friend of mine who also have this phone keep asking me how to turn on/off some settings). This doesn't bother me much since I'm quite familiar with the Symbian OS menu and UI layout. The image quality is amazing. The sound is good but the video(I converted a video clip into multiple formats,e.g. mp4,wav,mpeg,etc. and played those on the N8 and iPhone) is not that pleasing compared with the iPhone (maybe because of the bigger display on iPhone? I'm not really sure.) To make this short, N8 is the best smartphone for those who likes travelling and taking pictures. I won't suggest using this to watch videos since it drains battery much quicker.
P.S. install swype! the best app for me! :)

Im in South Africa but I guess I'll just get the phone and send it back if its faulty, but im hoping it won't be necessary :-)
I have two phones the first a sony ericsson satio
and now a nokia n8 I believe that the n8 is a better phone than the satio because it is newer, but in many respects the satio has some features that are better than n8.Video recording in low light with the satio was awesome because you could switch the light on and film,with n8 i havent found a way to do that,secondly the n8 has no dedicated call keys which if your wanting to make a quick call the process is a lot slower.
Iguess you wont get everything you want in a phone and having owned two 12 megapixel phones there are good things about this phone and there are bad things the satio i believe was a very underated phone and nokia has made a similar product
Janus, 09 Dec 2010I am a nokia fan-boy and I really want this phone. but because of all the problems the phone i... moremine is fine and and it's the one in the first batch
i've had mine for a month and 10 days tomorrow
I am a nokia fan-boy and I really want this phone. but because of all the problems the phone is giving the users i am having 2nd thoughts.. can anyone suggest either when the second batch is coming out or which other nokia i should consider?
Nokia please come up with other n series 12mp camera phone which has lens cover, dedicated call and end keys, video led light, removable battery, variable aperture camera with continues autofocus video recording. problems with n8 will make it out of market within one year. it has a very serious design problem because Nokia people just concentrated on style and looks of the phone which is very bad. first they should have given importance to usability and user experience and quality checking.

really love this phone but I am so unlucky ! Wont do same mistake again ! Frustation ! Feels like I ve wasted my money !
Som, 09 Dec 2010I agree that the features claimed by NOKIA are gr8 only if it worked. Neways good to hear that... morebest luck mate ! I am going to give it 3rd chance ! 1st had restarting problem then I got a replacement from Nokia care ! Itz working fine but afte 1 week the loudspeaker stopped working ! The replaced phones r not new ! They just exchange the problematic phones which r submitted to them by the customers ! It doesnt matter 4 them bcuz they dont care !
Is there AUTO RE-DIAL function in Nokia N8.
If its there can some one kindly tell me how to find the samwe.
I tried and the Nokia Agent who soild me the phone also tried b. But its not there to be found
the music play time given here is 50 hours. And in peak we dont even get the one quarter of 50hrs. . Al bull shit
for those anticipating a portrait qwerty on next update for this phone, dream on. nokia just confirmed there will be no such update.
john, 09 Dec 2010is this cell speed is fast when there is more downloads and is it faster than galaxy series ls... morewhilst you are waiting for the downloads was there something else U could be doing like thawing a turkey or something?
This is the NOKIA N8 FORUM. So heres an idea why don't you test both the N8 and Galaxy Series
Just to let you know if the Galaxy does beat the N8 in download you wont be singing to the choir in this Forum.
John yes it is worth getting but two things I should mention
SMARTPHONE AND MANUAL
is this cell speed is fast when there is more downloads and is it faster than galaxy series lst is this cell worth of buying or not
A 12 mega pixel camera with carl zeiss optic compare with 12 mega pixel camera(like satio)
Is that any different when took picture?
Carl zeiss stand for?
