Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010If people don't use the phone, why do they buy? You jut so blindly hate? If you have not used ... moreOne of the one's I've used the camera shutter doesn't even open all the time so you get 12 Megapixel black pictures, the photo's it takes are overexposed and blurry, I'll have to send it back to Nokia.
They are HORRIBLE to look at, the screen is a joke, the fonts are blurry and jagged and OLD FASHIONED must be the LOW resolution, the screen just looks WRONG.
Windows Mobile 7 on the Trophy I use is better, Android on the Samsung Galaxy S I use is better, on the HTC Desire HD, it's worse on the Motorola Flip and the SE X10 mini pro but they are small screens and king of them all is the iPhone 4, when you get used to it the Nokia screen looks amateurish and unfinished.
It lags like anything, when I touch things I am used to them opening straight away, I hate having to pause while the phone catches up.
if money is not a problem, iphone 4 of course, touchscreen is much better and the apps hands down are the best although android is catching up and ovi is starting to fill theirs with free apps too. initial and succeeding charging was more or less 4 hours.
the IMEI sticker can be remove. there is wi-fi in this phone and so far it work well. an icon near the battery will even appear in order to tell you that there is wifi in the area .have been using this phone for the past two weeks already after initially replacing my first unit after it hang. and it's a good phone, it;s no iphone or samsung galaxy s but its good..
ive just reviewed z phone's spcfctns . . .its not coherent on all websites. . .some pages say it has wifi. ..some says its not wifi supported. . .
those who are already using this phone. ..can u please clarify this for me. . .is the nokia n8 wifi supported???
n does it work well??
thanks u advnce mates :)
Dont you think the pasting of IMEI sticker on the back, spoils the beauty of phone ? it should be under the battery & battery should be removable.
[deleted post]Interesting contributions, thnx for the informative post. Can you provide the firmware versions from each video? I can post a link where the N8 does not have those kind of issues so who should the general public believe, me or you?
I guess you are trying to prove a point, that being that all phones have issues(unless you're implying only the N8 can be faulty??hope not, cuz then I'm replying to a troll...). The owners of the N8 that have the latest FW and problems like the ones in the videos are inclined for a replacement and Nokia would never deny you one.
I still don't own the N8 but videos you provided links to would never stop me from buying the phone because the majority of users don't have any issues and are happy with the purchase. The Internet is a beautiful place but it does contain a lot of FUD that can give you a false sense of things. I really don't know how anyone would judge the N8 from your posts alone. People nowdays tend to research their purchases, the N8 has its flaws that are talked to death all over the net but I for one think they are not a deal breaker, but thats just me.
Also, be sure to visit AAS as they have a five part review of this baby and part six is on the way.

Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010They have good battery life because no-one can do anything fun with them so don't use them much.Define 'fun'. If you meant games, symbian^3 has them and more are coming soon
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010If people don't use the phone, why do they buy? You jut so blindly hate? If you have not used ... moreBecause Symbian has battery friendly nature and Nokia take special care of the battery usage in the software that lack always in iOS and Android.

If you have not used it, you don't have idea why N8 doesn't have a big battery but the battery life is great.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010The thing is a year is a mighty long time in smartphone's life, so if it takes a manufacturer ... moreFirst of all, ios is not out selling symbian at all. Nokia is selling symbian much more than ios and android, even the sum of the two.
A smart phone life time is at least 3 years from the birth. People buy Nokia's Symbian phones or reasons, good battery life, rich feature and hardware build quality. All these things come with the power of the os. The more things the os supports, the more complex the os is and the more maintenance work the os needs. people need to realize it. Half year to work out a complex major update for a full-fledged and feature rich os is not considered too long.
Besides how do you know it will need 6 months this time for Symbian 3? Actually Nokia has provided some updates already. I am sure more is coming on the way. If you don't believe, wait and see before saying. Please don't always judge things according to your past experience. Things may get change and the world is not static. Nokia is changing and we have seen already some evidences, right my friend?

In the iOS, jailbreaking will void your warrenty, and without jailbreaking your iphone is a piece of unsuable crap.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010Best camera phone:-
LG's L-03C. It comes with a retractable 3x optical zoom lens from Penta... moreI can honestly say that is not a phone, its a huge slab of a camera that somebody tried to add a phone to. Fun, but not something I would carry around and there is very little actual data available anyway, not even release date.
Besides, tell me who gets to choose between N8 and this? N8 is not available in Japan and this will never be available anywhere else.
