deep space bar, 19 Nov 2010it was a small amount of phones i've had mine for a few weeks now and i have no problemsPersonally haven't gotten seen any of the problems listed here on my own or friends phones. Possible that some other areas got the faulty batches, but N8 is awesome phone.
Every single phone has its problems, but so far N8 seems to have lot less than on average.

Today, my N8 kept charging after unplugging it. I tried to reset it but the power button wouldn't work. This has A LOT of problems guys. I'm glad I'm returning it this weekend. I still don't know what to get, but I'm sure anything will do better.
My goodness, the n8 is plagued with so many issues. The worst one ever of all among all phones is, it won't even turn on. How can nokia mess up on something very, very basic. Why is nokia selling dead phones? That would only mean that nokia just releases phones without even checking if they work at all. How disappointing. Nokia will be dead just like their dead phones :)

if they are Fat32, i have no idea who use that fat32 anymore? If you bought extra storage usually you fill them like movies and all kind of big files so you have to change them to NTFS which support over 4 giga files.
If you go to your friend place and thinking to copying something and he's storage is NTFS you have nice problem there :)
I think this fat32 vs NTFS is not known for many people, thats why people reporting not workind extra storages with N8. Its very bad it doesnt support ntfs too, but i think its not possible right? like N8 cant support over 2 gig video files, so you have to cut hd movies to get them work, not very useful either.
[deleted post]N8 mate, go for N8. Vivaz is rubish in almost every aspect (except design and weight).
I'm telling you this as a Vivaz owner.....
No more SonyEricsson !!

But it does have 16GB of mass memory built in. There is also a slot for a memory card with support of upto a further 32GB. It also has USB on the go, which allows you to connect a USB memory stick or pen-drive or indeed an external hard drive if you want.

Q: How many will be affected?
A: Well if you look at the total number of n8's we have shipped, it is a small number.
my question is, How many have they shipped so far? does the Interviewer know and if he does he needs to let us know if at all he was doing this interview for the masses, but hey! it is a Nokia affiliated website so they are not gonna push it are they!!
Does the N8 come standard with a memory card? I am undecided on which phone is better Nokia N8/Blackberry 9800 Torch/ Iphone4? Any suggestions?
[deleted post]Htc desire ... but if u r too inclined towards a better camera then N8 . However these 2 fall in different price grups too ...Desire will be almost 100 euro more than n8.
But still i love my n8 :D

iPhone went something like...
No there is no problem, well its actually your own fault since your holding it wrong, look other phones can have this problem too if you squeeze em like hell, well okay its on every phone and we can't fix it, but well that glass design will look awesome with this plastic bumper...

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.

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.
