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
y23j, 23 Nov 2010TO NOKIA N8 HATER....
go n open yr own factory make yr own phone design it yrself. how many... moreI admit I hate Nokia, been a Nokia user for years. I stayed loyal to them when I could have gone to Iphone I actually got given an Iphone 3GS brand New but sold it on without even opening the package.
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"

TO NOKIA N8 HATER....
go n open yr own factory make yr own phone design it yrself. how many ram u want ? 512 , 1gb or 10gb ? processor 1gh 5gh or 100gh ? dual core or quad core ? camera 5mp 12mp 100mp. ?
nokia hater always say they have galaxy wave iphone htc bla..bla.. but the funny part is, if they really do have those phone why they dont go to their own forum n share ?? why come here ? bcos nokia is popular. nokia is good. nokia is big. nokia n8 hater dont own this phone they just JEALOUS...... why ? bcos they cant afford it that why they hate it. they come here n give negative comment or i think they r paid by other people to give negative comment so that they can earn some money to buy n8 as a christmas present...ha.ha..
when i make a full zoom the screen goes black
only for pics that i take
why is that???
o and another thing, why on earth are htc, iphone lovers are commenting on n8's page.. cu there is no activity on ur pages? this page is for n8 users to share their insights.. plz just scarce urselves n let there be meaningful discussions..
this world is full of cheap people. just because a few percent of n8 units are having some issue, some badass haters (sponsored by other cell phone companies) are trying their best to put n8 down. i have n8 for 3 weeks and know several others friends who have it. we are all simply loving it n what it offers. there is no reason for someone to aggresively post stuff/link agaist n8 unless they are lying n trying to prove something wrong. if they were just regular users, then they would just say "i hate n8, it got issues".. n not post links repeatedly...
