One thing more the battery is indeed long lasting! I will be giving more honest ob after the phone hits 1 week! As of now n8 rocks!
I got my n8 white silver last 3 days ago!! here goes my honest assessment of the phone... The screen is very bright indeed very sensitive to touch the fact it's a capacitve screen! love it so far cause a lot of apps can be installed and functional like resco viewer, spb shell v3.7.1, FS caller,Isms v1.10, mw dictionary,photo browser,smart crypto,lcg xplore,jukebox,smart movie,and many more... It played xvid/dvix videos so smoothly, hyperx mod makes it very astonishing when recording videos at 30fps and taking pix with 100% quality beyond what satio and pixon12 could possibly take! kinetic scrolling is amazing yet not as smooth as ip4 and galaxy S... Sound? omg!!! dolby at it's best the video player is brilliant yet lack of settings for videos zooming or changing aspect ratio to make it better in viewing hd videos!!! 9mp pics are better than using 12 cause its full screen!! The worst thing that i observed was most of the time the phone reboot especially if i changed themes and some part of the screen is not as responsive! after 72 hours of uaage i had counted almost 12x the phone reboot! But it does not mean i will sell it no i won"t those problems i think can be fixed with the next firmware hope so! I still recommend n8 than satio which i had last 3 days ago! Go buy n8 now!
[deleted post]http://www.mobile-review.com/a...rak-en.shtml .....okay according to this article N8 has some defects BUT at the bottom of the article says:-
"Customers planning to buy Nokia N8 or Nokia C7 should wait until February or March of 2011 or take risks. If you are lucky or ready to wait until your phone is replaced or repaired go ahead."
If the defect manage to be rectified... will the negative comments turned to good comments?
wakakaka well u all should be able to predict the answers of these complainers ahaks?s

No any problem whatsoever.
Still not found the way how to attach USB OTG in NTFS format. FAT32 work perfectly.
Only one Person will be Happy about the Power problems some Nokia N8s are having,is Eldar on www.mobile-review.com,he demoaned the N8 when Nokia gave him a Prototype of this Top Class Mobile.an tried to really pull the N8 down,an even detered Nokia off releasing the N8 to Early,an this made me an loads of others very angry,we saw the N8 in April an was dying to get hold of this mobile very early,but he fell out with Nokia an made us having to wait at least 7 months before the N8 was finally released,an really glad i waited for this release instead of buying an a alternative mobile,Well Done Nokia!
I have been using N8 for a month now (US). It is simply stunning. I do not have any problems with my N8. Work great right out of the box. World’s first Penta Band phone.
My experience with Nokia N8:
Great call quality for both voice and video calls.
12 MP camera with great picture quality.
Video recording in HD.
Excellent build quality.
Battery life is very good (easy two days with daily 2-3 hrs of Music, 2-3 hrs of radio, 2-3 hrs online, 100+ minutes of calls; WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth are always on.
HDMI out with 5.1 Dolby digital sound.......awesome, added a new dimension to my HT System
FM transmitter (I play my favorite tunes and mix whenever I am with my friends, in their car)
GPS with Voice Guided Navigation, which does not require data connection.
File sharing (pictures, ringtone, video clips, documents, etc) and Sync with my Macbook via Bluetooth (Iphone users wouldn’t know what I am talking about).
USB on the go… really handy when I want to share a large file with friends (my N8 reads USB flash drive as well as external hard drive).
True multitasking… It does NOT restrict you from doing what you need and want to do…
Things I miss on my N8: Full keyboard of E90 and Touch Interface/experience of iPhone.
IMHO, N8 is way better than other eye candies out there…
I saw many comments about N8 problems, I wonder if those comments are from legit N8 users.
My Previous phones:
HTC Touch Pro
Nokia lovers and hates, your comments and questions are most welcome.

Every company has their own number bad phones, Motorola and LG are the worst IMHO, followed up by samsung, nokia, SE and HTC (apple not included cause all of their phones are pure crap :) )
My friend bought a samsung Soul slider cause it looked very attractive to her, but after a few months she complained about the camera and music player being not up to mark. Another example is my friends HTC touch, after 1 year of usage, the screen start to become unresponsive (u need to press it hard, REAL HARD!)
I support nokia but i've foreseen the failure of the n96 and the n97 by just looking at the specs and price. But the n8, i believe that it will be successful, not n95 successful, but enough to put nokia back in the game. So you see mike, dont just go blindly for a phone, survey it first.
mohd, 23 Nov 2010when i make a full zoom the screen goes black only for pics that i take why is that??? Restart your phone and it will be ok

Problem is, I've had nothing but bother with Nokia phones, it's the same old story since the N95.
Got my N95 as soon as it was released but was back at the care point within 4 days and after that it was nothing but trips to the care point every other week. Moved on to the N96 got worse and finally moved onto to N97, which went from worse to disastrous.
Nokia in my view need to be made accountable for the string of failures they have produced over the years but fanboys are not sending the right message to Nokia.
Believe me all this happening to the N8 is no different to what happened to the N97. I see a lot of people are are moving on to their third handsets coz they've had to exchange them "Nokia Discussion"
I want to buy this handset. Anyone can tell me battery is lasting atleast for a day
