Hardware - Awesome! Best in the industry.
Software - Web browser lags, portrait qwerty board is necessary.
This is coming in firmware update soon which influenced me buy this phone! Hope to get WiFi Direct as well.
It is several times faster than my previous phones.

Nokia still has nonsense crap applications on the ovi store.... QUANTITY AND QUALITY OF APPS RESULTS TO MUCH HIGHER DOWNLOADS... when there are only very few apps downloadables? here in the philippines you cant even buy and download some games or apps. crap nokia. and to tell you apps are country specific meaning you cant download for example Angry Birds in philippines but you can download it from finland. unlike android market and apple app store which doesnt mind where you are in the world.
Upgraded my e71 to this beautiful device and oh boy, this device rocks. Been using it for two weeks now and no serious problems so far. Of course I did a hard reset and the ovi store problem but that will be fixed in PR1.1 in couple of weeks. Generally speaking n8 is a real smartphone with addition of super camera, UTG, hdmi out, etc. a must buy. Im loving mine.

Even in PC, saving and editing 4000x3000px images is taking a little slow and editing 720p videos takes time. What more in a mobile phone? Everybody please know your device capability so that you won't be disappointed in trying to do something unattainable.
nokia phone is good for its price, but nokia company should improve some important sectors to compete with others like web browser, touch response...

Our telecommunications company has issued a warning to all channels asking them to power on the N8 after point of sale but before the customer leaves the store. This is because a high number of handsets have been reported DOA.
So I implore you, if you plan to purchase this handset, PLEASE open up the box and make sure it works before you leave the premises. IF you leave the premises and the phone is DOA, the store can only follow standard warranty procedure ie sending it away to be assessed.
in free memory bars application i am seeing that 100 mb ram is free out of 256 mb. But there is no application running on the background.does anyone know how can i free more memory?

I have had this phone for a week and the experience has been great. One time my phone did freeze but I was able to power reset by holding down the power key.
I am not sure why some people are complaining about major problems. Perhaps they are installing apps that are not compatible with Symbian3 which may be causing issues.
