look at all nokia device old to new but all nokia phone has great screen quality, camera, specification, everything great.i lov nokia
Picked up mine on 11th Nov, price approx US$500. No, Nokia hasn't officially released N8 in Bangladesh. Only people who pre-ordered it, could purchase it. According to Nokia BD, only 200 units will be sold initially. So far, I'm loving it - a world better than my XM5530 but when I compare it to my E71, not so sure. Yeah, I know, E71 doesn't have amoled touchscreen and so many other things that N8 has. I could a LOT faster with E71. Virtual kbd on N8 isn't easy to use. I like the speed although there were some sluggish moments. Very limited software. Excellent screen. There are definitely some learning curves, for instance, saving a new incoming or missed call from call list, i couldn't find any option. After few minutes, I figured it out - no, I don't read UG. Overall, this is an above par set, if not the best.

[deleted post]Don't install 3.0.6 even though it supports pinch-to-zoom and other new features. But it is beta and some people have problems with the beta.
It seems you had a bad luck with you N8. Try to contact you dealer and get a new one.
[deleted post]Sorry, correction on my post....'it still DIDN'T lag or freeze'.

I'm from South Africa. Seems i'm the only one currently with this prob. My friend has his and no probs so far. Unlucky me. To think i convinced him to get one and i get the faulty device!! Nevermind. I love this phone too much now. I used it on its own. No other apps were open. I thought about that but it seems it must be something else. As you said, maybe a faulty gps unit or something. Everything else just works! By the way, i tried multitasking with like 19 apps open at once and it still did lag or freeze! However when i opened the 20th it automatically closed some. I had both browsers open too on the heaviest pages too with NFS also open! So i dont think having some apps open would really hinder the gps but just for clarity with just the gps open on its own it still shutdown on many occasions. The prob i have is that you guys (including you) dont have that prob. If i had updated the ovi maps to 3.06 they would have not even considered given me a new phone cos it is a beta version. Yes it is to try and test but if there are probs from installing it even if the new version wasn't the root cause then your warranty would become null and void. It states this in the clauses on the betalabs site. Anyway i have backed up what i had so just to install in the new phone.

Engineer Man, 13 Nov 2010I will be trying the C7 if it arrives in 6 days. Then I may send it back & try the N8. Sin... moreThe USER internal memory of 350MB for the C7 against N8's 135MB, at some point made me change my mind about N8's potential as compared to C7 in handling apps, but symbian 3 OS utilises the mem very well and the new update is going to make it very snappy. Infact there's a Hacked update and i understand it makes it very snappy, no shity restarts. Generaly i don't think that there will be any significant differnce in performance.
Actually, I am thinking if map application just sucks and makes the phone freeze. Where are you from? Does the dealer tell if any other unit has similar problem. It is also possible the GPS chip is faulty. Everything is possible but have to figure it out.
GPS works really fine, smoothly and fast for me. I live in Finland. I also used in Estonia recently. It helped a lot when traveling in the city of Tallinn.
