I've had the N8 since Monday ad the NOKIA N8 since Monday and I LOVE IT!
My previous phone was an E72 and I was afraid I would miss it because the E72 was awesome. Well, after two days of playing with the N8 I have to say I don't miss the E72 much.
The first thing I did when I got the phone is setup MFE to link up to my Gmail account. All my Gmail mail/contacts/calendar all sync'd over perfectly with no problems! Now any changes I make on the phone appear in the cloud and vice-versa:) Please ask if you have any questions on how to setup MFE for Gmail.
Next thing I did was load the SPB shell. Although the stock interface is ok, I personally think SPB 3.7 is much better
Next thing I did was install Joiku and a few games.
The only thing that bums me right now is that Skype and Internet Radio are not yet officially released for Symbian3. I know it will happen soon but I am sad because I used those quite a lot on my E72. Besides that though everything is fantastic and also absolutely NO frozen or resets needed.
So far I give this a 8 out of 10. I would give it a 9 if it had Skype and Internet Radio. I would give it a 10 if the browser was better.
Hey Guys... just now seen on Nokia India Site N8 for Rs. 24000/-....

Thanks for the info anyway. But the haters dont know about this reason and exaggerate it as a lag caused by the (as they say it) "crappy hardware"
snonre, 10 Nov 2010I'll answer that for u, a dragable home screen will follow ur finger movement whenever u drag ... moreThe reason N8 responses st your finger swipe a/2 sec later in the homescreen is because there are some widgets (for example, favourite, aka contacts, where you can keep 20 different names, of them only four are visible. If you swipe it, the rest contacts will show up) that use the swipe as well. So this is not a lag, but the function itself. Similarly, when you press the call key, it waits to see if you press and hold (for voice call) or not.
i would advise you guys on buying your n8, i have purchased the phone for 2 weeks now, all i've encountered is it restarts or hangs a lot without any games installed.
1. while texting it restarts
2. using gps
3. using radio
4. using gallery
5.even at standy mode it restarts then ask for the lock code key

[deleted post]Awesome post man, i salute u. Also i seen a lot of real n8 users and supporters posting their post based on original ideas, unlike the trollers here who copy and paste like a jackass and spam like there is no tomorrow.

Tomorrow I'll buy it from Shopper's World, Gulshan, cause it gets very difficult for me to go to Bashundhara City from Uttara. Best of Luck. Call me after you got your phone (I hope you have my number). Take care.

I'm happy with my n8.
I purchase Nokia N8 but when I tried to access internet (E/GPRS)on N8 it turned off and never turned on. I went to Nokia care and then they repaired my new phone but when again I tried to use internet it again turned off. I am very much frustrated with this NOKIA Phone and I suggest you guys that please buy any phone from any company but never go for (NO)KIA.
David891, 09 Nov 2010How much not powerful does the xenon flash is then? And what are you comparing it with? with ... morei compared it with satio..satio's flash ws much more strong then n8 & the image was mre clear...
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...
