I own one of these devices, don't understand everyone's beef with it. its a very high quality device, the software has been great to me, definitely not as user unfriendly as people make it seem. i also cross shopped android (galaxy s) and i prefer this to it (which is obviously why i bought it)
not as many apps as apple but thats about it.
if you guys want more details feel free to reply and leave a msg.

1) Did you ever hear of the no questions asked money back or exchange g... moreThe main point is it isn't few faulty components or something that affects few devices, Samsung completely dropped the ball on GPS...
Part of that is fixed by updates, but even then performance is far from something like N8. How does the money back help?
Got the N8 and working pretty well till now,if it continues like this it would be the best phone i ever got in my life and for those who keeps saying to others 'u wrong the n8 is not the best and bla bla bla' GROW UP enjoy ur phones and let people enjoy theirs,I've never seen people jealous about CELL PHONES!!!!

Anonymous, 03 Dec 2010N8 Browser is not as good compare to Galaxy S. True.
But with Opera Mini and the new browser ... moreI've used the Opera Mini browser when I used an N97. It is actually a good replacement for the N97 browser. However, compared to the stock browser on the Desire Z, the stock browser is much better than Opera Mini. I have seen the Galaxy browser and it appears to be similar to the Desire Z browser in functionality and usablilty.
Opera Mini has some useful features, but overall, the Android browser is much better. I do have Opera Mini on my Desire Z, but 95% of the time, I will use the Android browser.
The browser update for the N8 is supposed to be very good. However, it is still a few months away according to the latest reports.
To all the haters. The N8 was never planned to beat any phone by miles. It was designed to be unique and different. Excellent in some ways and average in others. So to pick on certain aspects individually would be fine cos there are some bad elements and there are more than just SOME good elemants. Combine all of these together and you have a very powerfull mobile and not many can come close to it. So if the only things you guys can pick on is the UI, browser, apps, processor....and what else? What hanging, freezing and??? Every phone manufacturer has the Monday phone. At least it was just a small batch with flaws but not a design flaw that classes the entire lot of phones. 2011 is just around the corner. I believe the updates for this phone would be great. A lot of those gaps and issues highlighted will be eliminated soon through updates. Every phone has done so and so would Nokia. Think of it as something that has just been born. It will gather momentum at a very frightening pace very soom. If this isn't your cup of tea then grab a meego phone soon. The os is looking good to go and the phones will run using intels atom processor. The phone will be way ahead of others. Time to play catchup again android, iOS, WP7 etc. Mobile Computors in our hands. Not eye candy. The intel and Nokia merger is the winner. No phone would come close. Tablets to follow soon and they looking good too. For now, i love my N8. Nothing comes close to an all in one package like this phone. When meego phones are released, i will get one but i will still love this phone. Fits into my life perfectly and does everything with no fuss. Just what i need.

The Samsung Omnia HD is almost better then this one, and it is an OLD model. What happened with Nokia?? If Samsung hadn't leaved the Symbian foundation, now they should had been some very good Symbian devices.

First it didn't work at all (for one of my friends it still doesn't) and even now it isn't that great. N8 always locks in seconds for me, even when inside. Plus of course the navigation is worldwide and offline.

But with Opera Mini and the new browser update. This is no longer true.
N8 Email handler is not as good compare to Galaxy S. This is just purely base on user preference. I find it no different.
N8 Camera is definitely better with better lens, sensors and Xenon flash. Galaxy S have no way to change this.
N8 have USB OTG. Galaxy S none and no way to improve it.
There are more features that N8 have and Galaxy S can never have..
There are just too much that i am too lazy to write here.
Cause no point writing here to convince you to like N8..
Simple, if you don't like it. Don't buy it.
Best mobile phone i ever seen and the best i ever had. all i wanted in a mobile this one have. Thank you NOKIA.
bro any one know that who to and where to downloads N8 apps and full versions Games........... Plzzzzzzz i need.....................
sardar, 03 Dec 2010Hi, I use Nokia from 1998.My new nokia fone is N8. I M using it from 2 weeks...I want to shar... morereinstall your ovi maps and you probably have the s^1 version of gmaps installer.
It's really funny how the N8 haters still coming here to speak crap and bullshit about the this phone, I never been in any of the Samsung/HTC/Iphone’s forums, simply because I really don't care what they do or talk about them, guys it's very simple, don't suffer with what other are enjoying the most.
[deleted post]Go watch the video and see for yourself how inferior the N8 is compared to the Galaxy S. The video doesn't lie. It's telling people the truth that you don't want the others to see. User experience > boatload of features.
Hello Nokia community,
Do you know if there's RealVNC for Nokia N8 or any similar application to control my PC from my N8, whether using the IP or trough the wi-fi connection.
Thanks a lot in advanced.
