I've had the phone for over 2 weeks now. Very stable. Great phone! It does everything you would expect it to do and more. Thank you Nokia
Bought N8 2 weeks ago.
The good= Fast phone, slick design, good battery life, great camera and user friendly.
The bad= the battery totally suck at multi tasking, not much chnages, still Nokia.
mac5, 08 Nov 2010Yeah... I already admitted that n8 is better than se satio but what about massive 1 & a ha... moreAll good things take time to happen.
I am glad N8 wasnt released 6 months back with the "work in progress" tag
Symbian needed a big overhaul. and nokia has been listening. the user interface is much better(i mean functionality, not eye candy), and the platform is much more stable.
i am sure independent developers will do some pretty awesome stuff with this phone in the times to come.
Also, the time taken by this phone to come out in the market is justified by the brilliant quality phone nokia has come out with.
People crib about the browser, but Nokia already mentioned that a better one is on the way, and opera is there till then.
On top of it All, Nokia priced this phone really. In india, this phone is selling between 22000 to 23500 in different stores.
i was using a wave before, but i found the keyboard too small. the N8 is better placed.
i was a;sp considering the Galaxy S, but the N8 is a much nicer phone for the long run.
I received my N8 two weeks ago, and I have to say I am extremely happy, everything works as I was expecting and better.
Sails, 08 Nov 2010The CPUs on Android phones run fast, true. That is because it is necessary, since Android is i... moreThat's because android is utter crap for games. Android developers build games using an enhanced format of Java (I'm overly simplifying this, but android fanboys are incapable of understanding anything more technical) that can't use around 40% of the processing power available (sometimes even more). Android will never be a great gaming platform, even with the upcomin PSP phone (which is bound to be an epic fail given SE's track record). The NFS Shift on android has compressed textures, and file size is half of that of Symbian 3. Angry birds on android is missing many effects. And did I mention the relentless battery drain and how many games have performance issues across various devices? Angry birds play fine on Galaxy S, it lags and crashes on both ZTE blade and HTC Wildfire. So much for a gaming platform!
mac5, 08 Nov 2010Yeah... I already admitted that n8 is better than se satio but what about massive 1 & a ha... moreYea, all they did in those 18 moths-
1. Build a brand new O.S. that's fully HW accelerated.
2. Made an aluminium unibody construction over Satio's crappy plastic build.
3. Added true HDMI support.
4. Incorporated the largest sensor ever on a phone.
5. Redefined image processing algorithms by going for natural looks rather than full-forced post-processing.
6. Made an AMOLED display that's actually visible under sunlight.
7. Improved battery performance massively.
8. Added USB OTG support.
9. Added a class leading GPU.
10. Fine-tuned haptic feedback that enhances user experience.
11. Provided the best GPS unit on any phone.
12. Added true Dolby 5.1 plus support.
You need any more? Man, your trolling utterly sucks...
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010well... over clocking on android is not a problem bcoz they r already fast & over clocking... moreThe CPUs on Android phones run fast, true. That is because it is necessary, since Android is inefficient and can't properly use Graphics processors. High speed CPU is also really going to kill battery.
Its pretty obvious that Android doesn't actually benefit from faster processor it only makes it able to compete. Take NFS Shift for example that is available to Symbian, iOS and Android. The Symbian and iOS versions look great and run smooth, the Android version isn't as smooth and doesn't look the same.

1 & a half year is a great amount of time.
snonre, 08 Nov 2010Same goes wuth other phones
Want to install cracked games and apps on iphone - u jailbreak ... morewell... over clocking on android is not a problem bcoz they r already fast & over clocking is just an extra functionality.
It's not something that u do to overcome problem in ur phone.

why nokianot listen,
workhard on softeare, many people badmouth nokia for crapoy softeare,
btw , the chonese made videoplayer called umplayer can play 720p rmvb on n97mini, mkv as well
dee you em bee, 08 Nov 2010it has xenon flash which is not meant for video lighting as it would burn out if it did.
look... moreWhats with all all the ppl askin for video light ?
even dedicated camcorders dont have one?
mac5, 07 Nov 2010Dude...
Nokia took 1 & a half year more to launch n8 as compared to se satio the 12mpx co... morethe difference between Satio and Nokia N8 is that Satio is still old symbian s60V5, but the Nokia N8 is Symbian 3, and THAT took it more time to get it to the market.
satio interface is CRAPPY, just like N97 with the resistive screen.
The N8 on the other hand is a Breeze. and with the updates to roll out, it will only get much better.
Also, its great that Nokia made an OS that runs on mid range specs, rather than make an os and pump up the hardware for performance
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010why did nokia leave out video light it would of made this phone so complete like the n86 good ... moreit has xenon flash which is not meant for video lighting as it would burn out if it did.
look who's getting dumber here. lol

Want to install cracked games and apps on iphone - u jailbreak it
want faster processor on andoird phones - u overclock it with third party apps
remove lag from galaxy s with eclair software - install lagfix.
So what if the n8 has those probs, every phone on earth has their own probs too. And there is where the third party apps and software update comes :)
snonre, 08 Nov 2010All can be solved using spb shell, opera and software update :pWell...
Everytime we have to rely on 3rd party applications to solve the problems but when nokia is gonna bring a phone that is problem free.
Solving problems by 3rd party applications SUCKS !!!
