Moreno, 18 Nov 2010Finally i have the Nokia N8 yesterday!!!!! but anyone know i dont know how to use the GPS anyo... moreUse your computer and OVI Suite. Download all maps that you need and transfer to your phone. After that will use maps from phone instead online download. Its easy and free 4 life.
Or simple install Garmin XT 5.0.5 with maps and voila!

My N8 had arrive today. Now the things are clear, those who said that N8 were slow, restart by itself, lagging and so on c'mon...they're just empty talks, I am an eye witness of the sophisticated N8. 2 weeks ago my wife bought an SE android phone, it's complicated when I typing letters on SMS, not responsive, tends to hit the wrong letters or numbers, only a few usable applications etc.
I was easy going with N8, Nokia is more user-friendly.
Anyone tried activating powersave mode by pressing power button at the top and selecting from list. Its amazing how much faster the homescreen switches when powersave is activated Other thinhs seem to go faster too. Try and compare. Its quite something.
There had been rumors that apps like quake 3, ps1 emulator, and some other cool stuff coming soon to the symbian^3 platform. Cant wait!
yea its a shome they did not includ the video light along side the xenon flash they should of put led light instead of that dull red light the led light can do the same and better
The best phone I have ever used.no Lags, no hangs, no choppy videos, plays mkv format, using 1tb hdd to watch movies.gps works great.and the best thing is its 12 mp snapper.

some say its lags, and it is wat i expected, since its processor is onli a little faster than other symbian touchscreen nokias with ARM11. Those others lag a lot, like 5800, 5530, and watever. And i saw how choppy N8 for HD videorecording. Sad to se Nokia releasing a so underpowered handset, putting themselves on the bottom of the performance race, and STILL they cannot get better battery life than this?
Very disappointing. Im a nokia fan but this is not much to be a fan of. I had hoped symbian^3 would work well, but it cant even beat samsungs crappy Bada in usability? Losing to the losers.

The reason being there isn't a LED light on the camera, only a xenon flash which can't be used as a permanent light, only a flash. It's a shame they didn't include both though.
Viral, 18 Nov 2010I dont know if its a common problem or not, but i am also facing the problem. I faced the same problem until I turned off automatic wireless scanning and put the home screen widgets into off-line mode, only putting them into on-line mode when I need to. Wifi will always be a battery drainer.
Now I can easily get 2 to 3 days use from the battery.
Also playing games will kill your battery.
