Is there anyway I can install covers for the music on the phone? Some don't have covers and it's annoying...
iv had the phone since 25th 10 days. I have charged the battery from flat to full 3 times and it last me atleast 2 days sometimes more and i spend bout 4to5 hours a day on the net facebook youtubdm and 4to6 hours on other features like calls texts and music player. Iv had no problems so please stop posting BULL S***
who you kidding? Nokia don't know how to release a phone without bugs pal and the N8 is no exception. The internet is full of videos and posts showing just how bad S^3 is at the moment. You all will be lucky to get updates that will stabilize the damn thing, trust me been there this is N97 all over again. 2 years on the N97 is still in need of serious updates which I doubt they ever will manage coz the phone is so under powered.
I have used both Iphone 4 and N8 for about 2 weeks a piece. I was a Nokia user for many years until the N97 drove me away. Apple have simply out smarted Nokia. Was on the Nokia support discussion earlier and already people are sharing information on how to do hard resets for the N8 coz there's that many users needing to do a reset. I have been using the HTC desire for almost a year now never have I had to do a hard reset nor even force a shut down, don't even know how to reset it. I've only got 12Mb of memory space left but the phones runs fine. I totally refuse to use Nokia phones coz I take out 12 month contracts by the time the phone can be classified stable, I'd be due an upgrade, a waste of my hard earned money. Remember the N97? problems galore and still no sign of that 3.0 update

Keep on hanging and hanging when performing simple tssk . As other had said Nk 3310 chubby still better when making a decent call and sms are concerned. It not smart but at least it perform the basic thing what a phone should do......MAKING AND RECEIVING CALL
Symbian^3 is still below Android and iOS usability standards (especially camera UI and web browser)
This has been tagline for every s^3 phones. N8 is slow and unresponsive too.

Forget about the Hard Reset. How many times i need to perform this damn Hard Reset . Good smartphone dont need Hard Reset frequently. Selling my n8 and getting E72. if a phone keep on hanging and cant perform a simple thing by just making a call, than what a @#¥€ is this than.
N8 it has worst Battery life any Nokia phone i ever had since E66 with same problem. The battery go down 90% in 24 hours with light use. Crazy. Waiting to change the phone when Blackberry 9780 come out soon.
My question is how is the OS compared to android(galaxy s) and i phone OS ?

There is a different way to switch back the Nokia N8 which is known as HARD RESET. Sometime N8 doesn't ON even holding power button for more than 5 min.

I was totaly disappointed with n8 and i sold that phone after only 5 days of use and i bought wave.
Touch responsiveness of samsung wave is unreal and unbeatable !!!!!!!!!!!! OMG soooooo smooth !!!!!!!!!
This is without competition the fastest mobile phone ever made, and the guilty is BADA-probably the best operating system today.
So fast,so responsive,screen is something most beautiful i have ever seen in my life,music quality is out of this world,watching hd movies is...
I had so many phones but this is something that you must feel and try.After this phone, you will never want to have some other phone in your life.Bada don't have bugs and lags at all, it's so fast and beautiful.
This phone has wolfson dedicated music chip wm8994 ,but also 3d graphic chip powervr sgx 540 with score of 90 million triangles/sec...he leaves ps1, ps2 and psp behind.Wolfson music chip is soooo powerful, you will trow your i pods away.
The quality of music is something best i have ever heard in my life.
this phone is freaking monster in beautiful steel case.wave eat all other phones alive.you must try this phone and see the power and the speed that is beyond your imagination
For me, the most imortant things in every phone are ESSENTIAL THINGS FOR EVERY MOBILE PHONE such as speed,display,design,easy of use,processor,ram memory,quality of video,quality of sound,smooth internet,pocketable,made from metal,durable,great battery...
In all those categories wave is NO 1 !!!!!!!!!
wave is sooooooo popular.this phone is out of stock everywhere.It is easier to find diamonds these days then this phone.I totaly understand all those people because this is monster for such cheap price.Everyone around me has this phone.Wavemania are all over the world.Samsung has destroyed other companies with this amazing phone.Bada is the operating system of the future.Screen is out of this world.Speed is from some other dimension.Beauty is uncomparable.Built quality is just masterpiece.
