To think of the video editor is too suffering . But it is understandable that editing 4000*3000 p photos and 720 p videos will definately lag .

look it up ipad vs archos hahahaha apple as nothing to even get close to even thinking to compare the two devices
more features on nokia but less in the wallet
less features on apple over all is dissapointing
Sails, 20 Nov 2010Go try that app in the background and then come back. You don't know what you are talking about...Since you don't believe me anyway... I guess I have to find you proof. That application will probably count steps from accelerometer while active and maybe even estimate steps while in the background, but it can't actually count in the background.
Here is link to one popular pedometer app. And a quote from that page....
"NOTE to iOS 4 users: All-in Pedometer is fully supported by iOS 4 but does not work in background because of iOS 4 limitations. No accelerometer-based pedometer will work in background on iOS 4 because of multitasking limitations of iOS 4. This is NOT the application issue. Sorry for the inconvenience."
n8 is the 2nd best phone of nokia, best nokia phone is nokia n82 , and 3rd best nokia phone is nokia n95

it is laggy, i have no idea why they didn't fix it, like coverflow is so smooth, so i don't understand why that photo editor is so slow, is it heavier or bad optimization, i dont know, but weird.

http://mobile.viaden.com/runmeter-for-iphone.html this does that, and works background, count them on background too. Now we are at point what i already knew, only people who really have used iphone multitasking knows what you can do with iphone multitasking and what not, i can tell those what not things hasn't many :)
That's why i dont want to listen that crap from users who really havent even tryed it, they just say it's bad because apple made it, and that's truth. If android had same multitasking almost everyone screaming how well it works but because apple did it, it's like shit and all time joke etc.
Like i sayed earlier, i did same things what i did my nokia full multitasking, i didn't give up any function. But now with WP7 i'm again situation where i was before iphone multitasking :)

Aaron, 20 Nov 2010Nokia N8 - awesome hardware betrayed by awful software.
As much as I love this phone, but I ... moremy N8 dosnt look dated,
SPB + new opera mini.. the mob looks futuristic :)
i dont use a custom theme, coz basically im either inside an app or, in spb, back and forth etc.. rarely ever having to deal with the Symbian default UI, which isnt THAT bad imho
new apps coded with Qt, run and looks as well(better somtimes) then the competition
small example, the N8 music player,
Aaron, 20 Nov 2010Can we please not talk about the iPhone on this page? I'm so fed up with the nonsensical iPhon... moreiphone:
fans cant shut up about it, thinking its DA phone,
others, cant shut up pointing the fact its an incredibly over priced limited toy, and those fans are being ripped off by apple..
arguing about the Iphone is like fighting a propaganda XD,
i got this 8 days before. i waited a long for it .but very disapoited its very slow on wi fi ...its good but not up to its wait...
Where those software engineers from NOKIA studied ??? They are not able to do 100% good job !!!
Nokia music player is useless aswell as Ovi suite, to much and not bright....students can do it better then engeneers from NOKIA !
Nokia N8 - awesome hardware betrayed by awful software.
As much as I love this phone, but I gotta admit Nokia can't make a software worthy to run the incredible hardware of this phone. The Symbian OS is the major con of N8. The user interface looks so ancient. Nokia didn't even bother to upgrade the built-in calculator. It's the same calculator you can find in the 8-year old Nokia 7650. The hardware is new. But the software that runs it looks so old.
Can we please not talk about the iPhone on this page? I'm so fed up with the nonsensical iPhone talk. Guys, move on please.

Messing with pandora, really bad performance etc. Coming back again to the other points I listed.
Also it is quite nice to actually do something heavy on the phone, then notice that the sports app has actually died a while back...
I actually know quite well how the Apple "multitasking" works. Apple basically allows you to execute code on events (very resource limited piece of code). 3 triggers, audio, location, voip. Sure if you are willing to spend loads of time coding separate "multitasking" functionality and only add up GPS points in the background, you can create something like runtastic. What about a sports app that also counts your steps? Well sorry, there isn't any events fired from accelerometer. What about informing you on road blocks etc? Well I hope the app got that info while the user actually had that app open, because it sure as hell isn't going to start a status update in the background...
