Silly and ... moreby the way this "death of N8" started same as iphone antenna problem, people making videos to youtube to show the broken N8, because its so easy nowdays. and from there things spreading very fast.

Yep just like iphone antennagate, i know many iphone user who hasn't ever had those so called antenna problems. and even smaller amount had any calling problems. Actually i havent heard those real antenna problems almost anyone even these kind of forums, and im not surprised.
Internet has very big influence things like that, they spread very fast and got bigger and bigger.
Unbelievable. The amount of flame-baiting that goes on in these discussion boards. Silly and childish.
As far as the story of the dead N8's, what do people expect?
The N8 is an electrical device and as such is prone to a failure rate of a few percent, as do all other electrical devices. That's why we have warranties.
Can anyone truthfully say that all other manufacturers of mobile phones have never had to replace or repair any of their units under warranty? Of course they can't.
Obviously, some media muppet who happens to be either an Apple fanboy or an Android fanboy jumped at the opportunity to slag off Nokia and blow the whole thing out of proportion.
Wouldn't it be great if the comment boards were kept sensible and informative, instead of these silly flame-wars?
We live in hope.
Quadfather, 19 Nov 2010I agree with GPU its one of the best in the market..But what is the use of all these stuffs in... moreYeah sure, being able to do twice as much as any other mobile OS makes it quite pathetic. I mean others are already lagging miles behind and Symbian is still getting new features like USB OTG and showing off by fixing the SD cards that Win 7 phones break etc. How pathetic is that?
Give Android and iOS a chance!
Here is a nice video that shows how S^3 customization is running circles around Android.

Anonymous, 19 Nov 2010"Iphone does not support even the basic things like flash"
And we all know how &q... moreVery few people love using flash content on a phone. Many of us do not even want it on PC.
Nokia N900 has by far the best mobile flash experience out there and it is quite a hassle on heavy sites. Still, there are for example many video sites that are fun to watch with it. There are also several light flash games that can be entertaining.
The main thing is though that there are sites out there that have no other option than flash and with a little bit of bad luck, you still have to use few of those. N900 saved me many times when looking at that stupid flash based train schedule etc.
Moreno, 19 Nov 2010In 5 days or less i will post on this page the comparison a match between Iphone and Nokia N8 ... morer u an idiot? how many times must someone like you post the information that i an all otherrs can see using "compare".
Throughout history there have been disbelievers
so even i as a semi intelligent.. no genius person know 12 is bigger than 5. It does not matter, those disbelievers will agree about non specifics.
THEY ANOTHER PHONE CANT EVEN FIND THE RIGHT PAGE TO POST ON. You're wasting my oxygen teLling me stuff I already know and can get from premier phone magazine
so if you post this oh look at me i know the diiference is that not just copying
I am confident about the phone i am gonna get and just because another user is not don't panda to there insecurity. there are some post and i say wht the heck are they talkig about, and if it interest me i will do the research then there's you "spot the difference".
yeah and lets say for arguments the n8 is laggy theres
another 18 nano seconds waiting for a response when i could be doing something else. you are pandering to people who have to convince themselves tghey have the best phone in the world. you see they have to let you know thats why they are not posting on the nokia 1100 opinions page.
so unless the nokia N8 secretly cooks & cleans I, no we, we can read. we can use the compare function. tell me now what can you do in 5 days or less?

I WOULD LOVE TO GO FULLY PORTABLE BUT JUST LOOK AT TODAYS SLABS THEY ARE NOTHING LIKE A PHONE.

But skyfire didn't slow down sites where has flash advertising, almost every sites nowdays. there's so much rubbish flash stuff to slowdown your phones, i like flash on my pc which handled it perfectly, every flash stuffs run very smoothly.
That skyfire is very good way to handle flash stuff, i would like to get little videoplayer from flash, but there's no use for all flash stuff on mobile for most of people.
little not heavy videoplayer would be very good option.

The app actually had to be pulled out from app store cause users who downloaded and used it (the paid USD2.99 for it) were actually overloading the skyfire servers . That just shows that other iphone users want flash as badly as other people.
dr manav, 19 Nov 2010simply great fone... its 12mp camera,unmacthable. i used its hdmi output to directly play vid... morei want 3d video without glasses needed and a pc game support on a phone so is that available dr?hmm?well you the one who said 'just name the feature' there you go,so is it available?
[deleted post]"Iphone does not support even the basic things like flash"
And we all know how "well" it runs on N8 :) So flash is good? but almost every N8 user says turn off the flash, of course it is laggy and run out your battery because you using flash.
i still have no clue why this flash is so important to nokia people, i think the reason is because iphone dont have it, i used iphone 1,5 year and i almost never had situation where i needed flash and now with WP7 still dont need it, everyday is less sites/video sites which need flash and that's good! we can all watch smooth videos without thinking this video could run smooth or not.
just yesterday i got asked by nokia user, how well one sites video review works, he thinked they dont work, so he tryed to be clever nokia fan, but they worked flawlessly without flash, surprise.
and this flash thing isn't only for nokia, i think for now it's all phones problem, phones performance is just not that level know and there's much speedier devices on market and even they cant run flash, some stuffs works better than other.
In 5 days or less i will post on this page the comparison a match between Iphone and Nokia N8 keep in touch guys, video recording, Touch Response,Zoom in Video, GPS, UI Experience, Laggy Games, etc.... I have the N8 but the comments and comments about the best Cellphone keep me trying to know wich phone is better, and my frien have the Iphone 4 "i never used any iphone" so keep in touch guys!!!!
I have my N8, the silver one.. dont have problem with it.. btw i am fom philippines
this is a nokia hater mind.....
i hate n8 but i like to come to nokia forum....... bcos.....
bcos is too popular...
bcos is nokia is good..
bcos regret buying iphone
bcos andriod is worst
bcos i do like nokia but dont know to say it out...
bcos everyone is buying nokia
nokia phillippines and other mobile dealers n8 stop selling in the market, theres some signal problem, and camera problem not work properly or totally dead, n8 will start available next year february2011, we apologize with some complaint regarding to camera and signal problem. im die hard of nokia, i will wait it nextyear february2011.
Would have thought a good comparison would be with the HTC Desire and having just replaced a faulty Desire with the N8 I would have to say from a usability point of view the Desire is far and away better. The os on the nokia leves much to be desired (excuse the pun).
Cant knock the camera and build quality but it cost me an additional $181 to go to what in my opinion is an inferior phone. Silly me....
