Those that love Nokia and Symbian would probably class this the among the best phones ever made, but for the rest of us who think Symbian is the S**ts not even it's superior camera would get it into the top ten.

For goodness sake, folks come to this forum to try and get genuinely useful information.
My advice to all iphone4,3GS etc owners: sell that overpriced toy and buy both Nokia and Apple shares and stocks. If you havent fallen for Apple's class-leading marketing blitz, please dont buy any iphone.
Apple Macs are great computers but in smartphones, the N8 is really the best available right now. Of course I will like to see video light, a bigger battery, higher pixel count display (Super AMOLED) more refined aesthetics in the next Nokia flagship. But right now buying iphone4 or Galaxy S while N8 is available does not make sense no matter how you look at it.
Anyone praising iphone or bashing N8 is either having a case of severe buyer regret or directly/indirectly on Apple's payroll.
Please lets try and post really useful, factual, truthful info here.
Have a nice weekend everyone.
i dont get it.... i really think N8 is one of the best phones done so far but i keep looking at the top 5´s for best phones ever made and this little guy ain´t appearing anywhere...

Want to know, 05 Nov 2010Can u please tell me the sound quality of n8 through headphone? Is it same or better than 5800... moreno word,
It's bater than it. sound and video quality is amazing. I love my N8.
Lucy, 05 Nov 2010for people who bought N8...
does it play mkv and avi videos ?yes,
Now I'm watching films only on my N8. I don't need my pc to see film.
Super video quality and resound sound system is amazing. My N8 have made a mobile cinema theater for me.
I'm very happy about my N8 nothing wrong with it. Try it on your hand you will remind this comment.
How does N8 fair in the heat disspation and i am suprised that no one talks about heat disspation. Most of the smart phones gets heated up after 2-3 hours of intensive use.
Hows this for a anti-nokia site. Their review on the HTC DHD had a comment in the conclusion paragraph:
'Symbian fan-boys, please cover your ears, now: despite occasional lag, we would nevertheless take the added functionality of Android with HTC Sense coupled with some lag, over the all-in-all more stable Symbian^3 with its clunky interface and dated functionality.'
Simply put, they know that the symbian ^3 os is stable and yet they still put it down??? I'm sorry, i would prefer stability any day over lagginess during multi tasking any day. Symbian is not for lazy people who rather have a phone that is for functional in more ways than that of the oppositions. With a bit of effort the rewards of this os is more rewarding. I have a brain so symbian isn't for dummies but if you find it too hard, go for android or the like!!
By the way the n8 is much more functional than the android phones in hardware and software. May not be bling bling, but is way better in many ways.
I havew done 4 (Loudspeaker, speakerphone) comparisons between the N5800, X6, C7, N8.
Here they are:
Voice in (dB)
5800 is 75.7, X6 is 69.2, C7 is 66.6, N8 is 75.8
Pink noise/Music dB
5800 is 66.5, X6 is 66.2, C7 is 65.8, N8 is 66.2
Ringing phone (dB)
5800 is 68.5, X6 is 82.7, C7 is 75.9, N8 is 82.7
5800 (Good), X6 (Good), C7 (Good), N8 (Very Good)
That should sum it up. So Ketan is right, the C7 is just as loud as the 5800 during loudspeaker test. However C7 louder than 5800 when ringing phone ring tones go off.
brynn, 05 Nov 2010Their is only one other fone thats up to date that can match the 5800 and thats nokia X6.All ... moreHi Brynn. I guesse the 5800 & X6 are a benchmark for newer Nokias to match sound wise not disregarding the earlier N8, 9 series either. Having two stereo speakers in practicality would undisputedly be better than one Mono speaker in reality without theory.
I'm currently going by Ketan's C7/5800 loudspeaker test. When I get mine which is probably going to be around 8 days est. I will be able to also do a test for people. I'm not disregarding other peoples hearing, he may have better hearing than me.
But I can tell the difference in quality, clarity, loudness, distortion, lower bassier & higher frequencies being a Music man. I will tell you the discrepancies between the C7/5800 once I get my hands on it.
Want to know, 05 Nov 2010Can u please tell me the sound quality of n8 through headphone? Is it same or better than 5800... moreOn the C7 forum, Ketan had a 5800 before his C7. He compared dB of the C7 vs 5800 speakers. The C7 is actually clearer with no distortion & the sound he couldn't tell any difference between them. I'm sure the N8 will be louder as the N8 rigning dB is louder than the C7.
It's all down to how you the individual perceives the loudness of volume & quality of the sound. I have a very sensitive ear & can tell the difference between suttle low or high freq, distortion in sounds.
Go & try them out in the shop, because following someone elses opinion & perception is not neccessarily what you might hear. You might be dissapointed.
Engineer Man, 05 Nov 2010For me the choice is between which new S^3 N8/N8 has the best Music playback sound through spe... moreTheir is only one other fone thats up to date that can match the 5800 and thats nokia X6.All i know from me and other people is the n8 is as good as 1 speaker from 5800.The samsung innovate was preety good for me but had good tonal quality but i reckon 5800 thru loudspeakers on the fone is tops on all nokia s60 fones ive owned.
The loudest fone i had before 5800 was motorola E398 i think that was the model number,it later went to on to be first apple i tunes fone,that model back in 2003/4.The loudest fone ive had thru earfones which will make you deaf is nokia n91 and 60% is really hurting my ears.
i have mobile mania, i am using mobiles since 2007 from india, till now 84 phones are changed from various provider. I never had an experience now i have with nokia n 8, i am comparing with Toshiba tg01 1qhz processor n8 super, and all of u understand why nokia go throw with symbian s60 3rd edition for this phone is now all the professions like medical, engineer, and other profession the softwares of the phone was avialable , i install all the softare extraordinarily performing. n8-00 is the best bhone for the next six months, i have the certificate of my phone. nice to use handsof nokia
