Enzo Maldini, 17 Nov 2010Actually, i love the n8, its the best but im trying to proove to myself i didnt bought the wr... moreSo what is it? 3 things bugging you? You say you own this phone and yet you picking on simple aspects. Didn't you do your research before buying this phone. You want our sympathy for your poor decision or lack of intuition? We're sorry and yeah the N8 is a shit phone so there you go. You happy now? Now go return your N8 and back to your iPhone. By the way. If you actually test these phones then you should have picked those issues up before you purchased it??! Go return it cos you're never going to be happy, ever.
marvalous . i just didn't think of a phone like t@. it'z superb!!!!!!!!!
Enzo Maldini, 17 Nov 2010I'm not here to demonstrate my identity. I assumed that many people wouldn't believe me since ... moreWhat is your purpose here actually? Pls tell, cause all i see is that your promoting the Android OS and Iphone4. Whats the matter with you? This is the N8 forum for God's sake. What do you get out off trashing the N8? Is still going on as one of the most popular phone to be released by Nokia.
Jailbreaking an Iphone4 and rooting an android can be quite risky is not done properly. And symbian OS has a much easier way of hacking using HellOx. All you need to do is too acquire a cert and key file with your IMEI, sign the app, install it and let the app do all the hacking. As simple as that!
Dont laugh at Ovi store just yet, good apps are also coming toward its way. If you dont believe me just see for yourself. The new QT coding also enables developers to develop apps for the symbian^3 platform easier than ever (claimed to be easier than android).
Also, believe it or not, there has been an OVERLOAD of apps trying to get into Ovi Store. Nokia actually had to limit the number of apps coming through.
I have a question. I cant change the album name and I cant even delete my album (photo album) on my phone. There's no edit or delete option on my photo albums. Can anyone help me?
Enzo Maldini, 17 Nov 2010Excuse me using quotes constantly. Englsh isn't my natal language and I find this formula easi... more"You are right, but still it's worse than iPhones's and Samsung Galaxy S. You can see it by pure stats, by looking the same game running on different phones and... have you seen U3 Engine running in the iPhone 4 or Rage? It blows away PSP and N3DS graphics. Well, even someone at Nintendo told N3DS couldn't run it."
You keep forgetting that the n8 is just a higher mid-range phone but it already has ONE OF THE BEST GPU in the market and its good enough to compete with galaxy s and iphone4 gpu (i dont know what GPU are they using)
Yes i've seen the U3 engine and Rage performing on the Iphone4 but they are still tech demos man. I bet that if they release a full game they will reduce the details and textures just to make it playable. And graphics like that will make your iphone 4 battery go kaput in no time :)
"What do you care, how does your battery perform against its spec or how long does it last in the real world? You look like you want to make a crime of Apple and Samsung for including a superior battery."
Bigger CPU = Bigger battery, nuff said
All i'm trying to say is, for a 1200mah battery, the n8 battery life is quite good, of course it cant compete with a higher capacity battery (duh!) so im asking you to find another smartphone with the same battery capacity and compare its battery life with the n8.
"I agree with this and I hope things get well done, but the "big-bang" isn't now with the N8, it was long ago with the 5800. Since then, they are playing the catching game."
I disagree. The 'big-bang' is with the n8, just not expected at first. Demands for the n8 are growing each day and it overshadows the supply. Even the Nokia factory in china said that they need more employees to keep up with the demand.
This phone would have been great about two years ago. Lets face it 1 GHz processors are where its at to use a 680 MHz processor is a major fail. All the other features are gr8 but that ARM 11 is the only reason I would not buy it. Sorry Nokia, better luck next time.
anyone know when the new firmware will be released for N8? I am really looking forward to the new browser!! :)
go buy samsung wave..
its smarter than smartphone..
fast like moto GP.
A MUST HAVE
i love the fact that n8 haters probably make this phone even more popular...
i also enjoy posts that start with:
"i work in a mobile shop"
"i own both n8 and wave/iphone4/galaxy"
"i bought this phone and its crap"
"nokia is dead"
and so on
you can even notice a pattern. always apple and samsung afraid of competition
This phone is so bad, I hate it and wish I never let myself get conned again by Nokia after switching from an N97 which was worse.
nokia take so long to bring out the n8 and brought it out with buggy software when is nokia going to update it to symbain 4 and flash player 10 great phone but poor os and no video light
i even gave to the nokia care..they did some software update..i lost all my sms n contacts..n now the condition is even worse..
whn i complained to thm they said there is water damage n i had opened the set elsewhere..wtf is water damage..am i a fool to pour water on a handset dat i bought with my one month's salary...n y wud i open the set myself..
they said they cant do much..
i even threatened them to go to the consumer forum if they dont replace..but they didt listen..
i was very pissed off..
n now i have got an offer of 17k for N8..i ll b more than happy to sell it off...i only hope it doesnt hang while showing my phone to that potential 2nd hand buyer..
it ll be a straight loss of 9k( too heavy for me)..i m frustrated..i ll rather buy a 2000 rupee nokia basic phn than this bullshit symbian
i have both N8 and samsung wave..
i ll say specs, usability,speed,looks, hardware ,OS, music will definitely go to samsung wave..so, if any body is interested for these they can go for samsung wave..
but when it comes to camera,gps,apps ,compatibility...N8 is too robust to b beaten..
i use both of them...samsung wave for music,watching videos(super amoled is ucomparable),playing unbelivable 3D games(asphalt5,nfs shift,kroll,avatar,tekken,mortal combat) and basic calling facilities..
N8 for camera(best best best),internet surfing(large screen),gps(superb) and other apps in the library..
If i am asked to give ratings thn i ll give wave a 9 , n N8 as 8.5...coz wave is around 7k cheaper(can get a good digicam)...but whn it comes to N8..brand will always be a brand..
So, all u guys who are worried to get a new phone can read this review n buy ur choice of phones
N8, 18 Nov 2010i bought this phone a month ago.. thumbs up: 1) great sensor great camera 2) music qualit... moreYou should have known better, new products are prone to be bugged and defected in the first several weeks (especially the first batch of production). Don't jump into the conclusion "N8 sucks" until Nokia release an update to stabilize it.
i bought this phone a month ago..
1) great sensor great camera
2) music quality is good
3) video recording is good
4) amoled screen..n many many apps
1) operating system
2) phone needs to b faster
3) unreliable( hangs too often while taking snaps)
4) no descent battery life
so, when it comes to using..its not so good...I shudnt have bought this phone for 26k..its a real waste of money...i m saying this coz a 12mp cam can never b betr than digi cams...it ll only b betr than other cam phone..but whts the use whn only music & cam are good and rest all is like shit...when i was showing off my new phone, it hanged 2-3 times..it was really embarassing for me infront of them...Now, i ll definitely sell this piece of crap...i ll rather buy a blackberry or samsung nexus s..atleast their specs are good, hardware n os are good..n wont make me embarass again
Hello all. I brought My Nokia N8 and I fall in love with this baby! Let me tell you why you should get This Nokia N8. You can even kiss the iphone 4 goodbye!
Screen size is very large and high quality display. Meaning both photos and videos looks great. The sound quality is super good. I was listening my music on the plane and is sound as good as my ipod touch. It also has that side scrolling cover like the ipod touch. This phone support 720p movies but please note from me: If you take a 720p mkv movie and converter it to the nokia, it use mp4 formate but can take up to 2 hours and more depending on the size of the movie. You can even connect you phone to your tv using a hdmi cable. It actually show your phone menu on your tv, which you can remote your phone on tv with out looking at your phone screen.
It was sweet playing games and watching 720p on my sharp tv. Just like real 720p and won't lose the quality. same with viewing your photos taken with your n8. is detail enough and again won't lose the quality. Viewing photos on your phone is really easy and you can flip your photos back and forth and swiping on the screen. One of the best feature is web browsing. Use opera 10 which is what I recommend best load fast, and the n8 actually support flash commercial on web pages! ( ipad, you need to learn from nokia... )
Playing games on the n8 is good because it has a touch buttons display on the bottom of your game ( top down split screen for game screen, and joypad screen ) The n8 how ever doesn't have a extra batteries and instead is a build in batteries. I'm assure you is nokia so you won't have to worry about this phone ever going dead :P The only carrying case I find it fit is the official nokia n8 case which has a tag at the back for lifting your phone up from the leather case.
Over all I'm very happy with my nokia n8 purchase and I rate this a 9 because it is a little bit heavy. The price is around close to $600 in canadian which is a very reasonable pricing comparing to other newest smart phone out there. I recommending buying this phone if you want a touch screen smart phone that act like a pocket computer.
