Just got the phone today and I am impressed.
To all the people deciding whether the negative reviews are true, let me put them to rest.
The phone is as smooth as ever and is completely customizable, something other phones lack.
AND the N8 has kept all the functionality that you can expect from a very powerful operating system.
My only concern is the USB to go functionality. So far I have tried two USBs and neither of them are recognized by the device. Everything else works like a charm; the GPS navigation even works WITHOUT the SIM inside...very impressive.
AJ, 10 Nov 2010Hey Guyzzz... Nokia is back to rock. this hand set is really kool and awsome and its very fast... moreWeah I want to fool people...like I care what people buy.I own a n82 and it is the best rated in gsmarena under s8500 wave wich I am buying tomorow.You "music lover" you are just a symbian lover and my opinion is that the old and 250 euros cost vivaz offer simular things with the new n8.So whoever want a symbian phone should check that too.Its an opinion you know...
Well I have been chasing this phone for around 5 months now and I have finally got it 2days back.... Not kidding, but my insanity was worth it coz it has got all the features which I was looking for...Its user friendly, multi-tasking without any lags, some decent applications in OVI store....
P.S : If any one is confused to buy this phone, i would humbly advice you to go for it....Its worth for the price it's been released.....
AM LOVING IT !!!!

I have been following other sites to check how N8 is and i am having a feeling that all those people who says N8 is bad are lying.
Because everyone else apart from GSMARENA seems to have good experience with N8.
Check Phone Arena User Reviews for N8..
I have give it one more chance today and give it full reset..
go to fone -- fone management--factory settings..
u are presented with 2 options,restore or delete data and restore..
Be careful what u choose i choose delete data and restore which brings it back to from the fresh out of box settings..
WARNING you get no enter fone lock 12345 so be careful cause once selected your option fone restarts and takes about 7 minutes to restart,but i had 8.6GB on mass memory,memory card of 32GB already removed obviously.
Instead of 32GB card i used 16gb card and so far its been fine..I really think its a lot to handle is 32GB plus its a sandisk class 2 card so not the fastest..
At this moment still debating its really slowed down and only using approved ovi stuff,now if people are going to have a go at me and say ovi store is not often compatible with the new s^3 then thats nokias fault not mine as far as i am concerned nokia states this will come with ovi..Its also nokias fault if they approve 32gb card and it really cannot handle it..
So my honest answer is be wary ,the n8 is no n97 its a lot different under the hood and quicker but as people are saying check what you install ..Gsmarena or somewhere states you cannot use over a 2gb movie or 1.5gb if you wish to fast forward.To me it still just looks like 5th edition ,which it is but tweaked.
There are some models out there with faulty memory allocation problems but by now these should have been through peoples hands and solved either by returning fone for a swap.
video hdmi playback,screen briteness,web browser not good inmy n8 ..
There is an update on way but why then did nokia hold off for so long?? They are saying they cannot account for everybodys usage and patterns,well nokia thats your fault there are thousands of peole who would test your device for free..Why not invit 2000 people to a weeks stay somewhere with different usage patterns to flush out the bugs..You ask for people to test a new device with just a weeks holiday somewhere and no pay you would be inundated with more requaests than you could handle..
Accept the above limitations and the n8 is a rock solid smartfone with top specs but at this moment me personnelly am bit let down with nokia promising so much but people use fones different ways to me..I am more multimedia then buinessy things..
I don't know why GSMarena ignore User Experience in thier evaluation. When you say the phone score xx , you have to cover all aspects such as User Experience but not only specs. I will give real example: when you say n8 scored 8.x , i think this way u misleading the the reader. Because and from my experience if iPhone 4 scores 6.x , nokia n8 should score 1.x
hey guys dont act like child some of you a telling that the n8 is superb and the others are saying that it is a peace of shit.
guess what i got my n8 2 days ago and it superb
so for those who are saying that the n8 is not good that means that they didn't used it. so stop acting like child n8 haters.
I loved the story mate...Its awesome and yes its a practical situation...Lastly i loved the point that every one loves their phone and has their comfort levels, its Not just screen and eye candy UI that makes a phone its all about how you get your work done with ease.
Himanshu kapoor, 09 Nov 2010if u r going for the camera phone so pls pls pls dont go for this phone. if u compare it with ... moreI guess you should remove the safety plastic from the lens, or ur just an annoying troll.
