I finally got my N8 after a long wait. The phone stood up to my expectations and is freakin' awesome. I have been a symbian user all my life and have used a quite a lot of brands, but it definitely felt better with a Nokia device. Beside the built on the N8 is uncomparable. As per the OS (Symbian^3), Its very light compared to android or IOS so doesn't need a heavy processor. It also has a separate GPU for graphics, So applications run like a smoothy. On other phones the processor is shared between the apps and the graphics. Its has an excellent display and can play 90% of my HD videos that I X'ferd from my PC. It also supports 'USB-on the go' feature which none of the phone ever has. You can connect your pen drive to your phone and Xfer data directly. Wel' that takes of my problem. So the next time you are visiting your friend's place and you like a movie that you wanna carry home, You dont have to be upset about forgetting your pen drive at home, Simply copy the movie in your phone instead. Lets discuss the built. Anodised Aluminium - Although I wont go by the that stupid name but the metal body of the phopne feels amazing when you hold it. Also the Screen has a gorilla glass which is tough and feels good to gkide your finger on it. Regarding the default apps that come with the phone are a little less, but you can downlod thousands of them from the OVI store on that 16GB drive. Bluetooth is lightening fast as its the version 3.0 I will not complain about the resolution on a 3.5" screen, havint it higher will make no sense if you have difficulty reading it. To end my synopsis on the beautiful phone, I would just like to say, I couldnt have been happier buying ANY OTHER phone... Love this baby... My N8
ive finally got my n8 and i dont see what u pple cribbin abt..havent found any flaws in there.......yea sure not aall that many apps out there bt the ones i need i have em and more on the way.....ive got what ive paid for..
It definitely has the "BEST" hardware, but ovi is still not comparable with Android or Apple OSX. Tried the N8 in the shop but disappointed. The thing is its basic software that come with the OVI isn't strong enough, and its market place also not big enough. That's the reason why I use E52 pair with a iPod touch, so that I get the best basic phone function with the best muti-media and apps on the other hand with triple the battery.
BTW, I hate iPhone but I love iPod touch and Nokia.
does the nokia n8 has a message reader
Well, its been 4 months since i have been waiting for this smart computer and finally its with me now. I'm excited and elated and a meagre touch of this phone make me so happy. Its a brilliant masterpiece by Nokia and is surely The Best choice when it comes to a cool, funky, professional and efficient device phone. Its outstanding and sleek design makes it look hot and trendy. There are a couple of negative experiances but its too good to be an awesome phone in the market. Although is just an improvised symbian OS, there are a lot more things in common to its predeccesors from nokia on symbian OS.
nokia needs to give this phone a major firmware up date to get this phone back on its feet and to show the world y they r the best
[deleted post]Ok, from now on to prevent trolls, I will always ask the product code and country of the person who reports having many problems with N8.

[deleted post]Really, may I know what is your product code of your N8?
im an n8 user from philippines,for about a month.so far,no bad issues yet after i maximized usage installing more apps,games,themes and high quality movies and music.battery lasts for about 2 days of max usage esp when you activated the battery saving mode. Im a symbian user eversince.so,if you have some problems,you may ask. I may recommend this phone actually to those smart and technical people out there, Where you can experience the power of HD+3D graphics.
