i have friends who own iphone and one who own samsung galaxy s and they all complain about the battery. so whoever is complaining about the battery life of this phone is probabaly having his very first smartphone. all smartphone especially those that are this slim have short battery life.
snorne, 04 Nov 2010Wait for a firmware update. Just wait.Any news abt new firmware update ? When is it coming ? Does they know that N8 has problems ? I am dying here ! I cant hate this phone ! Itz just a great but the restarting problem is killing me !
Gitty, 04 Nov 2010My silver white has restarting problem,what should u suggest me ?
1) submit it to nokia care ... moreHave you installed any S60v5 software or even some third party software? What software have you installed to your N8?
If yes, it's better to flash the new firmware and install all the updates. You can go to Nokia care center and people there should help you.
My phone doesn't have problems at all. Before it restarted after I installed f-secure anti-thief software. I immediately removed the software and it didn't restart anymore. It works pretty stable since then except occasionally opera crashes.
dont trust nokia NSERIES is always failed, i recommend all of you planning to get n8 soon, go to samsung,htc,iphone its worth to buy, n8 waste money,symbian is suck. see what happened new os meego nextyear.
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2010Seriously buddy....don't kid yourself!!!! Symbian 3 is so full of bugs and errors! My N8 hasnt failed me so far. Just wait for new updates and im sure all of the bugs will be fixed. Even the so called great iOS and android OS have their fair share of bugs too. Nvr in history has a OS been released without any bugs and probs.

Despite I posted this on the forum a while back when first got launched people think I was talking out of my A$$!

as for the sound prob,you need to adjust the equalizer....just to add though,the n8 head set is of superb quality..
as for the youtube prob,i had it too in my 5800,then in the 3gs too...it's nothing wrong with the phone....just that the mentioned two phones are of too good a quality for youtube mobile....just for you to check out....try this....
watch a certain video of youtube over the n8,then,download that same video over the PC to your n8
you'll realise the difference in quality....
not the fault of the phone brother

When anyone of you have a doubt whether to buy a nokia or a samsung,my sincere advice go for samsung.because Nokia has just got d name and hype when compared to samsung.samsung phones are much of worth.
Best example ask any person who owns a Nokia N97.
I regret buying an N97 so its btr not to go for hyped phones of nokia.
I use to love Nokia. Now all I do is wait. I tried loving the Nokia N8 but Symbian in all truth of the word is by far behind the competition. I bought the N8 only to have to return it. The OS just doesn't work for today's standards. Nokia failed on not porting Meego on this. I guess I'll wait for Meego to makes its official debute. Don't get me wrong the spec's on the N8 stands great and having a dedicated camera was a blessing while I had it but getting basic tasks done was a hassel. I recommend anyone to just sit and wait for a Meego device to come out. N900 is a year old but much better overall device which Ill stick to for now. Nokia listen to your faithful user's before you lose them all to Apple and Android.
start from 5:09 where nokia starts to fail
Tanvir_666, 04 Nov 2010Guys is it true that only silver white N8 is having auto-restart problem? I mean how can that ... moreThis is my theory. Nokia was a bit in a hurry to release this phone, and the colour silver might be the original colour of the aluminium used to make the body of this phone, thus it manufactures faster than other colours. So nokia just loaded a pre-release software into the silver units and ship them off in a hurry. That is just my theory.
