New game called 'Sparkle' coming soon to the symbian^3 os. Looks like a Zuma clone but with better graphics
azm, 08 Nov 2010hi everybody.. does n8 has horizontal virtual keyboard? thanksBy default it doesnt have a portrait qwerty keyboard, only a numerical keyboard like the ones you find on non-touch scree phone. But there is a software update which brings the portrait keyboard, as well as an improved browser and dragable home screen
this phone nokia N8 doesn't work well the response of the touch screen is not that much 100%. so if someone is planning to buy this phone just double think first before buying it...

BTW, Symbian 4 was supposed to be the UI rewrite. Symboan 3 simply changes things under hood like Qt. That is why it was such a great thing Nokia promised those updates to N8.
umplayer for symbian can run rmvb smoothly
it is developed by chinese,

The n8 just feels a little like nothing has moved on. The screen is more like in general use a resistive screen. I actually think it's probably the under powered processor, that slows everything down in reality. Scrolling can be slow and you feel the phone is still working on last instruction. Gaming is mediocre, nfs runs but lags a little, the camera is fantastic. Audio great, even supplied earphones with remote excellent. Can you create your own equaliser preset, did not see that option? Case and screen build quality good, but it lacks this phone, it lacks. The o/s feels like it needs a complete makeover again, and it's new. Had high hopes for a symbian that was more up to date, shame. Actually using zte blade to reply as heyboard easier to use and faster.
Nokia N8 experience update: unpluged the phone from the charger at 5 in the morning. Did average music playing time, a little web surfing, gps mapping, little photo taking, little calling, much texting. It is now 12:30 am the next day. What is my battery percentage after all that? 100%. Quite ridiculous amount of resources conserved in battery saving mode
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010cool N8 Review! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4p3TaFiA4dcHe is definitely an Apple fanboy, maybe an employee...you can see in the background that even his PC is an Apple computer...don't believe in that crap, try it yourself or borrow from your friend first who had it and test it for yourself.
For the ppl at nokia, i just noticed that for incoming SMS with mandarin characters u can't copy n paste elsewhere as u can with english SMS. Please respond.

Whatever bashing you do, there's no stopping for N8 surge. I am a REAL owner and to tell you people it rocks and mind you the price is very reasonable for this kind of high tech gadget. The guy who posted the comparison for sure don't own N8, he just got the opinion from some bloggers who continuously bashed N8 (the apple and android fanboys who don't have budget now to purchase N8 because they alredy throw their money to ishit and dying android)
i really need loads of opinions here... help needed plz..
i currently own a nokia E71. and i was thinking of giving it up and getting this N8. for those out there who has bought the N8 i really need ur heads up on the disadvantages that i'll be facing when u buy it.
and is it worth giving my E71 up for the N8?
please help me..
tq so much
all u guys dont believe these spams N8 really rocks. The GUI is same as in iPhone 4 and about batt life is that if u work on more tasks it will drain obviously. Symbian 3 is very good i never seen this performance......
I bought a n8 & I tested it's touchscreen responsiveness & ui fastness with my already bought galaxy s.
In n8 sometimes touchscreen don't register touches & ui responds late after the screen has been touched.
But in galaxy s touch anything from any way it will 100% register the touch & ui moves along with the touch, even faster than iphone 4.
Camera is much better in n8 as it's 12mpx compared to 5mpx in galaxy s but video rec. is much better in galaxy s giving superior results to n8 .
In galaxy s there hasn't been a hanging or restarting issue in 3 months of use while in n8 it's been just 9 days & it's already giving me serious restarting issues.
It seems that n8 isn't fully baked.
Screen of galaxy s is much superior than n8. Pixel density is just great in galaxy s while n8 cries for pixel density.
Super amoled screen of galaxy s looks super great as compared to amoled screen of n8.
There is also a serious issue with n8 camera as it can't handle moving objects or little shake properly & spoils the image quality. Even the cheap budget cameraphones can handle a shake.
Gaming is much better in galaxy s as it is equipped with best gpu ever.
And galaxy s is much slimmer than n8.
Browser is uncomparable in galaxy s as after the 2.2 update my galaxy s is running full adobe flash player 10.1 while browser in n8 is the same old slow & lagging without full flash support.
My galaxy s also supports DIRECT WI-FI (a future technology which will end the era of old bluetooth) while n8 don't support it.
And the biggest problem in n8 is it's same old pathetic symbian while android is out of this world !!!
Well didn't have such a great experience as a Telco sales rep. I sold 4 of those N8 from my shop and 2 of them came back because the mobiles were not turning on. Bit scaring does this mobile has got any manufacturing issue such as N97?
Yogesh, 08 Nov 2010Hw many camera's r there in n8? Is there any camera at the front of mb or nt?of course there is a Secondary front facing VGA camera for video calls.
