Yes, this phone will play avi formats. In fact it will play virtually any format thrown at it. It records in mp4 format (sadly not avi).
As for battery life, I don't know what people must be doing for their batteries to run down so fast?? I'm a fairly heavy user of the multimedia applications and use both still and video camera quite a lot and I am only charging my N8 every 5-7 days. I guess the few times I download my content onto my pc charges it up a little, but it can't be that much.
This phone is awesome!!
Hey Jim it's processor is a little slow. After a few apps were added and some room used on the internal hd. It could have been early stages of the phone dying. we'll see how it goes after its repaired
Dear all, does anyone know does N8 could save the page while we online any webpage on N8 as picture and mms to someone else? I couldn't find it after many days purchased the N8. All the iphone generation could by pressing menu and start button at the same time. Guru and Sifu pls advise. Tq

Zero, 07 Dec 2010Through this phone in the trash Low processor and i don't care if Symbian doesn't need fast p... morethat "bad"a is worst example, it even DOESN'T run on lower processor than 1Ghz, not to mention its battery sucker so keep it for yourself.
Guys, don't believe this slow processor and less memory stories...the N8 is very quick and very accurate, just go in a shop and check it yourself.Screen and build quality are really top notch, longer battery life, the camera is really something else, symbian^3 is very smooth with so many new features...And don't forget the Nokia support, much better than the SE support.With all these advantages i think the N8 is the only handset to match the quality of the iphone and htc desire.
15 days old started not responding. Then turned off wont turn back on. Telstra (aust) wont swap the phone for me. They are telling me they will have to send it away to be fixed. Could take up to 4 weeks :( .Nokia care has told me the same thing. send it away. Any other electrical device would be a straight swap within a 30 day period. What is so hard. I'm now thinking I would love a refund. It's not going to happen. Very unsatisfied customer. Used Nokia for ever now a change is around the corner. To top it all off it was a great phone before all this. A little slow processing. Quality of photo's brilliant.
Hope der will be phone in future which as
12mp camera with xenon flash and led light
Multiple os just like in pc when u have option to go to windows or fedora (Symbian,Android)
Usb on go support for 1tb External drive
Projector,scanner,Super Amoled display with nokia clear black
Battery backup for 1week

Through this phone in the trash
Low processor and i don't care if Symbian doesn't need fast processor they should think that before because Symbian doesn't give great resolution too 640X360 What the hell!
Look at S8500 bada os doesn't need fast processor too but Samsung add fast processor anyway to give the greatest performance
Does Nokia N8 has Soft reset button lik O2 & HTC phones? It will solve al d problems if soft reset option is available coz hard reset is done in a very rare case coz the whole data wil b vanished!
Robert, 06 Dec 2010The chap in the shop is not informed well. This phone has a hard reset. By pressing the power-... moreHey Robert thankzzz if d option of holding the power button is present than well it's good but if the piece goes for hard reset than d whole data on ur phone wil be deleted and you have to feed in the data again.Dn't you think it's a pain!Hw many times you will b able to reset the device...
