I am using N8 for ten days, no problems,excellent value for money. A class camera & touch response.
Only hanged once after installing swype so i switched off the application,now o.k. Not able to use speed dial, it restarts every time I use speed dial.
Most of useful apps are available for this phone & are working fine.
I donot know why people make an issue of number of apps in iOS & android , while even simple apps like call recorder is not available.
By the time u start using an android phone a new upgrade is available & u come to know that your hadware does not support it. With Nokia at least u can online upgrade it.
I was using Samsung omnia hd & i could not upgrade it even in gaurntee period.

nokia failed, 19 Nov 2010Nokia has again admitted that N8 is faulty. Link- http://www.engadget.com/2010/11/18/nokia-s... moreI brought the N8 the day it got launched but had to return it! The sales guy said to me "you sure it's faulty" I told him that it kept freezing / resetting etc but that was early days...and was kind enough to post the comments on the forum but THEN....people on here think I'm a Steve Jobs FANBOY....!!! I wanted to let others know the issue with the N8 NOT co's I want an Iphone! IF you all read this and want to know I use a BB Bold....I'm NOT saying that this is better or worse than the Iphone OR N8, they are just different and I'm here to help others saving them going through the nightmares I've had in getting a new contract taking on a handset that has issues! Thanks for reading and NOT being biased!
Anonymous, 19 Nov 2010If the handsets produced in china were any faulty am sure Nokia would have stopped using China... moreWell said Dani, It's the Nokia twats that want to go cheap not the Chinese! Symbian OS is $hite so people admit it that this N8 is CRAP!
GUYS, has anyone encountered reformatted their N8 using the POWER BUTTON,VOLUME DOWN,CAMERA BUTTON & MENU BUTTON at the SAME TIME, then after formatted my MAPS & GPS application is missing in my phone, NOKIA really needs to have a MAJOR FIRMWARE UPDATE, not like MY NOKIA E72, love it so much i keep as my secondary phone.
So many new apps coming to OVI store. Its already pretty impossible to try to keep up. Maybe I should quit my job to play more with N8 ;) ?
Zawar Bokhari, 19 Nov 2010Nokia N8 is the biggest flop i ever baught mainly due to its display..its su... as hell....i j... morenHD display was since 5800 and used in every touch screen symbian device
nothing wrong with watching a movie using composite cables in widescreen
no other phone can do that and still keep the ratio proper on a small screen as well
Nokia N8 is the biggest flop i ever baught mainly due to its display..its su... as hell....i just cant stand it.Why is it so so so inferior.i mean even with full and maximum slider it so dull...i am robbed for 2 years in my plan now and 3 wont give me return...

http://www.engadget.com/2010/11/18/nokia-s... moreand where did they fail
they notified the public about faulty devices lurking around
look at steve what he did everyone knew he was at fault,even the guy that he fired knew he was at fault and all he did was point fingers and trying to dilute their problem with adding more poeople in to it
nokia always fesses up when they mess up even if it's not their fault
eg the 5800NAM i had mine and it never had any reception issues
but in north america..since i'm canadian had 3g reception issues so nokia did a massive recall and reflashed all their phones to v20 from v11 and everything was fixed

Anonymous, 19 Nov 2010will there be any symbain 4Yes,with the help of QT symbian^4 UI is coming on N8 !
parker, 19 Nov 2010what's the risk if I will restore factory settings of my N8? restore/delete completely... I ha... moreThere is no risk just make sure you got your docs, contacts, pics e.t.c backed coz once you do a hard reset you might lose everything.
But shhhhh you are not allowed to critisize the N8 over here, you will be labelled a troll and they'll suspect you of being an Iphone fanboy.
Dani, 18 Nov 2010Prototypes are Made in Finland.
Some of the first Batch of N8's were made there to.
Pr... moreIf the handsets produced in china were any faulty am sure Nokia would have stopped using China by now. It was the same with the N97 people blaming Chinese models but it turned out the phone was just faulty.
Look folks! Symbian OS is the problem. Don't blame the Chinese, after all most of these manufacturers in china were once European based who moved to east in search of cheap labour.
If you're in possession of a Nokia N8, please answer this.
1) Which N8 version do you have? US or International?
2) Where does it originate from?
