Anonymous, 20 Nov 2010"guys, i m very much confuced, some body say its a very good phone,some body say its not ... moreThat's so not true!
I own both the Galaxy S and the N8 -- and I prefer the N8 over the Galaxy S. I've also tried the iPhone 4, and while it's nice I cannot justify the much higher price Apple charge for it, especially when considering iOS limitation.
First, the N8 is much cheaper than both the S and the iPhone 4. The N8 is not even in the same price range as those phones!
Here's the list of things I prefer in the N8 over the Galaxy S:
- Pentaband 3G: it's good that I can choose either AT&T or T-mobile unlike other phones.
- Anodized aluminium body, unlike the S' plastic fantastic body!
- The camera & lens & flash are much better than on the S, and wait the S doesn't have flash!
- HDMI port, I can easily connect the phone to my high def TV, not so with the S.
- The bundled headphones that come with the N8 are much nicer than the one that come with the S. Samsung doesn't even provide an audio remote control to the pricey S.
The only advantages the S have over the N8 are the SMOLED screen and the larger Android app library. However, Android also comes with Android fragmentation issue -- go search on this, Android is heavily fragmented at both the OS and hardware levels.
And yes, the iPhone 4 is very nice; I've tried it. But no iTunes for me thank you, at least for the present.
So please... don't assume that people who like N8 haven't used the other OS. They have. I do. And no I don't think Symbian^3 is inferior to other mobile OS at all. In many areas Symbian^3 surpasses other OS; its speed is fine. The only beef I have with Symbian^3 is some apps are missing, but I hope that will change soon.

Galaxy S is great but the telephony not that good and if upgrade to Froyo reboots and the aps lag, and don't get me started on samsungs support!!! ,N8 has a great camera and Myltimedia but seriously symbian 3... cooomon i use all my life symbian and i know that isn't as fast as androind and the browser sucks also, and the only 700 Mghz procesor on the other hand Desire is great really.. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A PHONE FOR 6 HOURS that is...AND DOESN'T PLAY DivX and XviD plus np second camera??? where are we at 2005???
OOOOHHHHH and the iphone ...ohhh the iPhone has the apple sooo it must be good right... PLZ i will stab my eye...!!!!!!!
PLAIN AND SIMPLE NO PHONE IS PERFDECT,
we choose out phone acording to our needs... And if you are not a 15 year old who after batman and spiderman fights for phones the BASIC need is RELIABILITY and the most reliable phones are Nokia E series ..

What i learned reading many many reviews and user comments, i can say people who previous phone was nokia phones like it very much, because it's definately best nokia device ever.
But then people who have used all kind new smartphones, htc desire, galaxy s, iphone. Say it's not that good compared to them.
If you are nokia user and really havent ever tryed other brands hi-end phones you are going to love N8
if you want best camera and like things like HDMI and USB on the go, N8 is very good for you, most of average users dont care those that much. But that's why we have options
guys, i m very much confuced, some body say its a very good phone,some body say its not good, pls help me, which one is actualy true
[deleted post]I have waited that kind of post, first of all i didn't start this multitasking, some guy there sayed it's crap and i wanted to say its not that simple. By the way all of them don't freeze, apps what needs more function have it. But this is same all over, it is really pointless to speak about that with people who havent ever used it :D i just dont understand why people say something is crap without giving opportunity.
For example i'v been nokia "fan" almost all of my life, over ten year had about 10 different nokia phones, then i wanted something different i ever had any apple devices, but iphone looked interesting so i go to new world, and have to say it was my best phone by far. It's same than some people hating apple without even giving chance.
After using N8 for 1 month the things i have concluded are:
1. OS has been upgraded but in term of achievement Nokia ppl didnt done their work well.
2. Nokia although tried to bring all in one in dis monster but in making dey forget few ingredients like equalisers in music player, new web browser i mean eye candy would work sometimes.
3. N8 is comparatively laggy but for me its okay as i love and prefer Nokia above all other brands.
4. Social networks could be enhanced.
5. music quality in headphones is just on par.. i mean 5800xm perform better den dis. even my frnd wave provide better sound.
6. we all talked about the Amoled screen but still the screen lacks the brightness needed to outblow the colours of amoled.. i mean brightness is less compared to other amoled competitors like omnia hd.
7. Sometimes Ovi store behaves like a kid...arrogant..it doesnt matter how hard u try it will not make u download content nd yeah please give some rewards to application developers as the applications in ovi store is quiet less.
8. Camera...which is the main tag of this phone need some serious change in os...very much like nokia 6600.
Please nokia guys if ur listening help me out...i want all dese things rectified in update becoz i just love my n8 and all dese limitations annoying me...
errmm, i cannot view my camera photos on my n8. what do i do? everytime i try to view a photo, it freezes.
The phone is great, superb functions as well. To all users, just to share information with you guys, Nokia N8 has stop its production for a moment due to its faulty and unpredictable motherboard problems globally. That's why some customers complaint of their damaged N8 like auto-restart, laggy response and etc. They may re-produce it but don't know how long it takes, so for those who really wanted this phone very much, I suggest to wait for the new motherboard to be manufactured, I bet it'll be better
i would buy i ipod touch and use my n8 or other smartphone as roother . Point final nothing beats the man who knows how to use nokia
Sails, 20 Nov 2010And you read that second post too right ;) ?Now i readed i have no idea about that, i just sayed that app what i showed chance stepcounts at background. point was about counting footsteps and that app what i showed did that, i dont know how it does it. Still i dont understand why you need to run those apps on background, why dont run the example pandora background and left that running app to first app. The phone is in your pocket so where you need that when you exercise etc. Many of those apps have music player itselfs so you dont need to put app to background to change song.

Helllllloooooooo peoples what you want is waht you want how about just looking at the specs and learning all about symbian you will never get as much attention cuz of the there marketing
If you are an internet& gaming guy....use iphone...if you are a video & photo fan....use Nokia N8...For me i'll buy an N8 coz there's a lot of things n8 can do than iphone...If you can't still decide...buy them BOTH...
Sails, 20 Nov 2010Go try that app in the background and then come back. You don't know what you are talking about...Go try that app in the background and then come back. You don't know what you are talking about...
OK :) we just tested it before i wroted about it, i havent ever tryed that, but luckily it has lite version so we installed it to my friend phone and it worked.
steps changed background. I think you are the who don't know :)
By the way, why you doubt my words? of course i dont say it's working if it's not, what's point with that?
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2010"The photo editor of N8 seems a bit laggy ... or is it only me ?: let me know other N8 us... morei think this is where this needs more Mhz and mb .
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 .

N95 n97 n8
fm transmitter bluetooth 3 memorycard usb ready
so no real differance from iphone 2g to 4g
android tablets and windows 7 tablets
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."
