The OVI application takes ages to start up and also the sync with Outlook calendar & tasks takes a very long time.
Hope there is a fix planned for this issue soon.

The screen on N8 is still very good though and I hate the "bigger resolution is better" argument that some people try to give.
As I said the resolution argument on Wave vs. N8 isn't all that clear.
Been trying out the Angry birds game on N8. But the experience has so far not been very good.
The screen gets stuck frequently and there are stuck pixels...maybe due to hardware ???
The N8 has a 2-tone color...Is this becasue the top and bottom is made from plastic? (im not talking about the glossy black ends) or is it made entirely out of anodised alumium?
I.E, is the part where the menu key is and the top part made from plastic? Because my friend has one, and she says that there is alot of light leakage(By the menu key)! I'm guessing becuase it is very thin plastic....
Sails, 01 Dec 2010Oh you didn't know about the SAMOLED on your wave?
It uses RGBG PenTile matrix. The green ... moreaccording to every mobile expert,every review and every test done on samoled..it is proved that samoled hAS the best display quality!!even my frnd has n8 n he atleast agrees that the display is much better in wave and galaxy s..
wave has bada and galaxy has android so what??both r better n faster than symbian..even bada has a beautiful interface..
i dont hate nokia but dont like symbian..
Samsung I9000i and wave are very powerful this phone no one argue respect all this phone N8 is amoled wave is super amoled but Nokia N8 is the king.

n8's resolusion is better that wave and galaxy s??wtf?????????... moreOh you didn't know about the SAMOLED on your wave?
It uses RGBG PenTile matrix. The green subpixel resolution is 800x480. The red subpixel resolution is 400x480 and blue subpixel resolution is 400x480. So N8 actually DOES have better resolution on blue and red.
Last I checked, Wave didn't have Android, so I don't know how your comment was relevant otherwise.

n8's resolusion is better that wave and galaxy s??wtf???????????r u mad??
50mb games r lagging in n8 while 300 mb games r running on wave flawlessly!what the use of so called "vram"??n u r calling it a better gaming device hahaha:d
n wave has better processor ram battery but still it's size is not bigger than n8..even galaxy s is not bigger although it has 4" screen..
n do u know y n8 doesnt have high ram n latest proc?? its not that n8 dosnt need that..bcz n8 cant afford to have latest processor bcz of symbian!!the most ugly looking os ever!!
i will buy nokia phone when it develops the touch response like iphone or htc's touch response.be in hurry nokia..........
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2010Nokia N8 has a low RAM 256mb,slow processor 680mhz,low pixel display 360x640..this phone shoul... moreAs long as a phone & the OS is efficiently run then a 680mhz processor will be more than enough, going by reviews both the phone and the OS can handle mostly everything at least reasonably well and other things exceptionally well.
Also there's not many a phone out there which can capture 12mp photos with xenon flash and capture HD video with stereo sound and have HDMI out, USB on the go, FM transmitter, Bluetooth 3.0, Dolby Digital, DivX playback, front facing camera, Gorilla glass and 16GB storage all rolled into one.
Your logic is flawed there is no phone in this World which could have done all of the above two years ago and there's not many a phone which can do all the above now.
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2010Nokia N8 has a low RAM 256mb,slow processor 680mhz,low pixel display 360x640..this phone shoul... moreFew points for you:
-Android is so heavy, N8 is better for gaming device than any current Android device.
-S^3 can use VRAM so actually N8 can use RAM up to 1GB. No Android/iOS device can do that.
-The 640x360 display actually has better red pixel resolution and blue pixel resolution than Galaxy S or Wave.
It also can output HD quality video, has USB OTG, Great camera, best customizability (well, after N900), Camera that is so far ahead others its ridiculous etc.
Most manufacturers just solder components together and compete on spec sheets. Nokia actually designs phones by balancing the overall experience.
You can put in the fastest processor and end up with huge space eating heat sink, large battery and bad CPU lifetime or you can create efficient OS and use all that for something better.
Internet Radio for NOKIA N8!
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2010OS limitations,unfortunatelly!i guess Nokia is time to change the OS..Symbian is really.....if nokia change to a better OS so i think i'll back to Nokia..
Nokia N8 has a low RAM 256mb,slow processor 680mhz,low pixel display 360x640..this phone should release 2years ago..but not now..Nokia is making a joke with us
for those unhappy about camera n video, u r probably capturing at lower res. you have the option to change resolution. i m having this phone for a few weeks now, and i am simply loving it.
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2010actually u r getting the features good camera,fm transmitter,usb otg and hdmi but loosing many... moreI heavily dipsute your comment regarding poor sound quality. As a matter of fact, if you do a straight test with the HTC Desire HD, iPhone 4 and Galaxy S, I think you'll find that the sound quality and volume is superior in every way.
And if you do get a chance to playback a High Definition video (720 fps) on both the N8 and S-LCD based Desire HD I think you'll retract your comment regarding the N8's alledged inferior screen, because it's running standard OLED technology.
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2010ok u can adjust with ur n8 after spending 23 k..but y??there r bettetr options.....no need for... moreWell i'm from malaysia and i only got it for rm1500, which to me is quite reasonable considering the features and the phone is still new. And nokia doesnt give a shit about me.
'y u have to wait for upgrades for basic things to work properly!'
same goes with iphone4, where they say that reception prob is fixed with the software update (making calls is very basic) android 2.1 to 2.2 (2.1 cant install apps on SD card, which is one of the basic things in a smartphone)
"u r happy with ui "UI and screen doesnt bother me much, as long i can use it, it's fine with me."how can u manage with it??the ui is atleast working thats enough for you??"
well i have been a symbian user from the start so the UI is familiar to me.
"audio quality is there, just a low volume (hope nokia can fix this" again the same thing..how nokia will make it louder its a hardware thing..\"
audio and volume CAN be improved through software update. Nokia has been providing better audio and volume through software updates, the latest is the nokia X2. (i think)
'and y the games like hero of sparta is running slow??u will probably say not using gpu..but y??nokia has released the fone after so much delay!!but there is no game available which is coded for symbian 3??and can use gpu??'
all of the games use the GPU. the reason why gameloft games are slow cause gameloft are lazy to properly port the game to symbian^3 platform. If NFS shift, angry birds, galaxy on fire and rally master pro can run smoothly on the symbian^3 platform, why not gameloft games? Is all about the willingness of the developer to port and code it properly.
