There is no divx,mp4 or 3gp player apps on this phone,just click on video apps and it will play any supported video. And most of user who face switching or restarting problem is because they install unsupported apps for n8,yes nokia has said that s^1 apps is workin on any s^3 phone,but they forget to tell us (or perhaps didn't know) it will cause some problem to the phone.
i have used n8, former n97 mini user
much improvement in os stablity and and capabilty about symbian 3
nokia did not work hard on symbian 1 which is really immature
want to see euro 700 symbian phone from nokia next year
nokia nokia dont care so much about the price of their next flagshipbecause n8 is already devcent to compete with its ompetitors
n8 sucks, 13 Nov 2010had a budget of 30k....used n8 and wave....but n8 was okay ...wave was awesome...so i bought w... moreOk then, can you tell me anything that the Bada OS can do but the Symbian^3 OS can't?
had a budget of 30k....used n8 and wave....but n8 was okay ...wave was awesome...so i bought wave and an xbobx 360 with remaining money...
no doubt nokia makes best hardware for phones but they shuld accept defeat in os and fuck symbian and use android...i ll be the first one to a nokia android combine
my advice to n8 users
hard reset n8, usung *#7370#
install only google maps, joikuspot , angry birds, spb tv, sports tracker, swype,
and wait for next upcoming n8 firmware update, new ovi maps, new ovi browser, new nopkia interent radio,
if you are adventurous person, try out umplayer made by chinese developers which is capable to play high resolutuion rmvb smoothly
need more chinese character writing pleasant experince, try out baidu input whioch let you handwrite chinese characters in full phone screen, i love it, btw it works flawlessly
finally, just wish more decent app choice to come, or you can contribute to symbian by just going to apps or games developer forum to ask them for symbian version of their apps
I will be trying the C7 if it arrives in 6 days. Then I may send it back & try the N8. Since the N8's Music playback, ringer faired a bit better & louder than C7 in some gmsa sound tests.
It's a while to wait to try out a phone. Then to send it back & wait to try another phone. But I think it'll be worth it. Not sure whether the N8 is as finished as the C7 in other areas.
The C7 seems to have more C: application space available. Even after it's used for the swap file, application memory & OS. 300+MB's seems to have a better chance than the N8's 150MB's free space.
Also the C7 does seem to have some varying icon themes & varying font size to N8's. Their does seem to be some varying pre loaded apps on C7 over the N8. The C7 seems to be a little bit more prepared & ready than the N8.
Gsma even mentioned that the touch screen of the C7 seemed a little bit more finely tuned & better calibrated over the N8's touchscreen. It's effectiveness. However most people here can say whether the N8 is actually better prepared than Gsma N8.
Mac, 13 Nov 2010Guys, what would cause my N8 to shutdown when using the ovi gps? Works bloody well but just sh... moreDoes it happen often or just occasionally. It happened restarting once with my N8 when I tried to search something from map or something like this. I have used it for over 2 months and occasionally happens something. I consider it normal and acceptable as it is a new os without any major updates yet. I have had problems with Windows 7 on my HP mini laptop such as network stopping working without rebooting and chrome browser freezes and even crashes now and then. But most time it is working.

sreenuy, 13 Nov 2010hi my name is sreenuy from hyd i want buy n8 please tell me about camera(photos&videos cla... moreHi am Selva from Coimbatore. I have bought this phone on 25th Oct. Still now no issues with my phone. Am so much happy with my purchase. To speak about camera its awesome. Really a very good images can be obtained from this 12MP camera. Keep in mind that u have to remove the scratch guard which will be present over the camera during purchase, otherwise u will have only worst quality of photos. Browser is not good but its not bad. Pich zoom will work nicely in the browser. But Nokia promised that there will be the best browser in the Phone during the next major firmware update.
As far me is concerned am so much happy with my N8 and is value for each and every rupee paid and even more. Download and view the sample file taken from my N8 camera.
