it is slower
it has only 256 mb ram and and a singal core of 600 mhz so it is not a speedy mobile
bt it has 12 mp camera which is great
dee dee, 13 Jun 2013uh... i can't remember when installed it and how to. but on certificate application it called:... moreFor 1000000 time please people do not misslead others. And for 1000000 time it has been said that symbian has skype. It had skype even before android was born, through fring app, back then videocalling was posible. Now original skype app is avaible since ever... BUT... Does NOT support videocalling but only voice calling. So for all you symbian users. Get over it, Skype will not make it happen, not know after all the kicks symbian recieved. So no skype videocalling is possible and i'm 90% sure there will never be one released in the future either.
its gonna serve me for years to come.. Ya its not gud for gaming in cmparison wid androids... But who has so much time to waste on games on a screen..! Rest of the requirmnts r totally fulfilled... Belle refresh is gud n abt this phone....
Sound gud ,speaker,music,call ringing
touch very gud
screen size ,easy ti handle,ideal
camera ,superb(click photo of a running fan n u'll get to knw wat carl zeiss n xenon n sensor n lens n 12mp does...)
connecting featurs very very gud..
N the price so reasonble..
Love this phn, i have almost no rzn to change to windows or androids..may b for change sake someday..but this phn is perfect..

George(12xu), 12 Jun 2013Gr8, i saw it!!!! Its not the first time they copy/paste. Thank you for the info :)))Seeing the new iocrap, made me really offended. I even posted a comment about nokia "idiocracy" on the crappy lunch forum of ios (which got deleted, by the way). UNBELIEVABLE how so old futures(but futures of a real smartphone)are ADVERTISED AS NEW? Nokia had them all and abandoned the only real Mobile OS. Am still offended of the crap i see everyday in this days. Just makes me sick and tired of it. I think the n8 will be my last smart. I will look for other hobbies. This one is now for sheep's and oil-snakes...

please any one help me. I have copied all my contacts to skydrive account. But after the phone format I could not able to restore those contacts to my n8. How can this possible????

The touch sensitivity was working normally when I once charged using Nokia DC-16 (external battery). I tried with different (original) charging adaptors also. No use.
