Been playing with my Nokia N8 for almost 10 hours now.
I am falling in love with it.
Absolutely amazing device.
Photos are top notch.
- Energy Music
- Angry Birds
- Need for Speed
- Currency Convertes
- Weather Updates
I did get memory full message once but then I open 10 apps at the same time.
Sound is amazing.
Memory Card had 1500 photos. Took 15 minutes to read for the first time.
No Hanging problem as of now as I reached count of 22apps at one time. This was only for testing though.
When multiple apps are opened, closing is not so fast. You try to close them but they stay open. No complaints regarding GPS.
Inbulit browser is not so bad but will prefer OPERA Mobile. But Opera Mobile doesn’t support Multi-touch so it’s like no clear winner.
Battery have died within hours of use but that is, I am constantly doing something.
All and all I think I made a nice decision and I have chosen to go SIM Free in UK. Reason being, I don’t want any career to modify the internal software.
What else, I am loving it.
Sound quality is good via Bluetooth. Have tried
- Sony Ericsson MW-600
- Nokia BH-905
- Sony DR-BT21G
The supplied headset are also good. I am not fan of a charger.
My Seagate 250GB hardisk is not recognizes by USB OTG functionality.
Video playbook is so cool. Without encoding loaded 2 movies and here we are.
Video recording quality is not likeable but audio recording is top notch.
I would say, no regrets provided it doesn’t die.
I would be happy to take any questions.
And one more thing SWYPE is too cool.
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2010this phone lags..sound quality is not good..except the camera nothing is special there..it lags but ppl seem to b happy coz it lags less dan 5800 did. 680 vs 434 MHz on the processor, not even twice as fast.
i say it again: Nokia chose ARM11 coz they cant make symbian run correctly on newer procesors. They know no1 want ARM11 but they have no choice, their job now is to convince ppl that ARM11 is still good enough. Its like Dell or HP would try to sell us Pentium4 processors over Core i7. So who here is planning to buy a brand new pentium4 pc?

Camera zoom is very short in contrast with N86. Is any way to long the zoom.

Gitty, 21 Nov 2010Itz nokia's gameplan ! I dont like it ! N8 Should have CBD display but nokia... :@Nokia didnt give CBD to the n8 because it CBD might have been created way after the n8 was announced. CBD will also jack up the price, but not by much. Yeah the in-box headsets are crap (compared to the quality of the phone that is, i still keep it cause it looks cool :) . I use a philips headsets and they are way better than the in-box headset (louder too).
Itz nokia's gameplan ! I dont like it ! N8 Should have CBD display but nokia... :@
Just tried samsungs 3.5 jack with N8 ! It gives clear and louder sound than nokia's WH701 ! I will try N91's jack !
