The problem is you can only make one first impression. Nokia would need to launch a new phone with the update so they can make a market changing impact. Today, Android is eating Symbian's market share at an alarming rate.
David891, 16 Nov 20101 question to N8 owners. There is a red LED light which burns before taking pictures. I have ... moreThe red light is used partly to provide illumination for the camera autofocus to work when the light level is low. However the primary reason for the red light and camera sound when taking pictures or videos is to prevent anyone from secretly taking pictures. In many countries is is mandatory for cameras to have these features. I doubt if Nokia will remove the red light or silence the camera sound.
Enzo Maldini, 17 Nov 2010"Whats wrong with the GPU?"
It falls behind the competition. Do some research.
... moreas far as i know, the n8 uses the Broadcom BCM2727 gpu which is one of the best in the market. And as for battery life, its quite good for a 1200mah battery, try to find another smartphone with the same battery capasity that can last as long as the n8. You could also enable the power saver mode 2 increase ur battery life.
Yeah, symbian^3 is still in its infancy stage so there is still some bugs in it, still remember the 1st version of android? Also nokia plans for over 50 changes for symbian^3 in the next major update coming soon in early 2011. And symbian^3 will also get a whole ui rewrite in the future, things like this need time man, you dont just expect to get a great os from the start itself?
Ps to the post above you - STFU, ur just a hater who follows other people but have no original idea and talk bullshit. The n97 was the past man, let go over it already. Nokia is improving but you're too blind 2 see it
How is possible that the N8 has a better calification than the iphone 4??? lest processor, less memory, less quality video recording, less quality screen, less aplications, less battery, much more pretty the iphone 4.
It means that the calification on this page is less than ridiculous. a lot of jealous people vote against the iphone because then could never have one and they have to buy this n8.

"And whats the whole picture exactly?"
An underpowered phone with nice features and an old buggy software. Even GSM Arena says Symbian has some distance to catch. They didn't even compare it to high-end phones at the end of their review.
"Can the iPhone last a full day with its specs? Yes, several in fact. Can the N8? Also. Depends how you use the device. The but the statement 'battery on the N8 is poor' is lame without a comparison of what you did to drain it."
I do the same tests on every phone so I can make comparisons. I repeat: N8's battery performance is poor. If you don't believe this, check comparing battery life tests online. In this web page there's even one.
"Please don't state narrow minded 'facts' by looking at the specs sheet alone and its pretentious to think you can judge a device by it"
Even if I stated "narrow minded facts", you have to agree with my first post being longer than most. There's simply not the place to detail everything and elaborate. I judge it based in two months of usage and extensive testing.
"You can bash any product as much as you like but at the end of the day it still remains a product."
I totally agree with this. I think the N8 is a very competing product indeed, but it just can´t win.
"There are far better ways to spend your time on this planet then, say, replying to a troller, like I'm doin' right now. Oh, wait... :)"
I fail to see the logic of calling me a troll. It seems having a solid opinion is known as trolling now.
Warning: If you dont want co-workers and friends swarming you to look at your pohone, dont buy the N8. They just cant stay away or just walk by without taking a look. Some approach me saying they heard about my phone. There are numerous blackberrys and iphones around but man! Is the N8 phenominal or what?
snonre, 17 Nov 2010awesome post man. sometimes i wonder when haters and trollers post short, simple bullshits and... moreIt is quite simple. Large part of the trolls are little kids with their first smartphones and it must be the best phone in the world because that is the one the parents bought.
They have no actual facts or experience so the messages are 100% childish belief. Hopefully at least some of them understand and learn from the replies.
Sadly there are also some paid trollers like "fujapa" who did a serious copypaste fail on Yahoo Nokia forums few weeks past. He had some article copypasted into notepad or something and he had also started writing an e-mail in the same space. He did copy paste and posted the message to the forums... Here is the end of the copypaste:
I am a bit confused about your mail. You said that it is possible to increase my fee but you have not paid my fee at all since then? Someone will get 12 times more than me in Mumbai area. I can change the job if my money does not appear.
I am cheap but people listen to me and sell stocks by my messages so I am worth every dollar.
I really hope he got screwed.

"Check CPU, GPU, RAM ammount and bandwidth, screen resolution and battery performance. Don't let the camera and the HDMI output to blur the whole picture."
Whats wrong with the GPU? And whats the whole picture exactly?
If the device performs well than the whole picture is clear. If we just look at the two CPUs than yes we can say one is better than the other but MHz is not everythin'.
There are youtube videos that demonstrate the N8 as a FAIL but there's also videos that demonstrate the contrary. So, who should we believe? Maybe the ones that didn't have native Symbian ^3 apps? The pics smples taken by users that forgot(?) to remove the camera lens foil? Come on, really? Are we all so simpleminded to take anything from the web without a grain of salt?
Can the iPhone last a full day with its specs? Yes, several in fact. Can the N8? Also. Depends how you use the device. The but the statement 'battery on the N8 is poor' is lame without a comparison of what you did to drain it.
Please don't state narrow minded 'facts' by looking at the specs sheet alone and its pretentious to think you can judge a device by it(well, you can but then your intentions become clear pretty fast [see? still no troll reference...ups!^_^]). People like their phones for what they can do with it and I think that with the N8 there is little one can not achieve and for some reason many have found themselves in a position where their current phone is just not that great anymore(well, technology does evolve does it not?) and felt inclined to spread FUD all over the place just to diminish the success of the competition.
You can bash any product as much as you like but at the end of the day it still remains a product. There are far better ways to spend your time on this planet then, say, replying to a troller, like I'm doin' right now. Oh, wait... :)

I still prefer N8's video too because of its quality optics.
