Afzulio, 08 Nov 2010Hello friends Please advising me whether to buy this phone. Me owning nokia n 97 that gave ... moreI have N7 which gave me problems from the start so i am not even considering this N8 or any other Nokia after being a loyal Nokia buyer for years. I am definately getting the Blackberry Torch. Good bye Nokia, you have lost the plot in my opinion
The thing is a year is a mighty long time in smartphone's life, so if it takes a manufacturer about six months to fix all the bugs and produce hot fixes like it takes with Nokia that means six months of nothing but frustration. I speak from experience as am a former N97 user. People are still waiting for that all important hot fix nearly 2 years on. Nokia High end smartphones are underpowered and there just ain't enough RAM installed, Symbian itself may not need to much CPU cycles or RAM but third party apps installed may. Off course IOS has bugs but at the end day people affected by the loss of signal are in the minority. Otherwise it works flawlessly. With Nokia phones you need to know which combination of buttons to hold down to reset or learn how to take the battery out and if you do it to the N8 you void your warranty.
It's all about user experience, that's why IOS is out selling symbian in the high end market sector as it a much better user experience.
i am using a nokia n8 right now!
i can confirm wifi enabled with b/g/n compatibility!!!!
all the best
This phone(Nokia N8) is awesome. I have had the orange one for a little over 2 weeks. As long as it keeps working as well as it does now, I am a happy customer. It has all of the specifications here. The social app is updated and in my opinion better than gravity, but I am not a big gravity fan I find.
The camera is superb (like unbelievable and indescribable-its not just better than others it is a whole different ballgame).
I think most (american)reviewers didnt really use the phone and I am becoming more convinced of that as time goes on.
I have 4G almost everywhere in Denver I go on Tmobile(take that Sprint!) WiFi tethering by JokiSpot, Games have better graphics due to amazing GPU. Lasts through 8+ hours of solid use on 4G and 3+ days if used only as a phone. Can view any website, flash or not, calandar is awesome, now I will never forget a birthday, nested menus, incredible amount of space, the screen is beautiful and you can see it even in direct sunlight. Internal Speaker is awesome, it sounds like I have a full mobile speaker, microphones are great, and I can customize everything! I could go on, but being this isnt an official review.
Downsides:The phone is complicated, the usb tethering takes a very long time to intialize(though after that it works fine). I have yet to see an a error popup, and the only bug I have seen is webpages sometimes closing (which you can immediately reopen by going to history). You need apps to make certain functions like WiFi tethering or calendar/facebook MASS association work (though that is no different than Apple so I dont see that as a downside and you can associate them in a non mass way natively).
I bought this phone because I needed the Pentaband radio, but now I guess I am an enthusist. Oh well.
