Hi all, I got my orange n8 tuesday morning. The camera is awesome. I LOVE the orange colour. Where else can you get an orange coloured phone? BUT there are a lot of areas needing improvement. I want portrait qwerty, lag free pdf browser( the preinstalled adobe is terrible!) and I don't know why but sometimes some taps just dont register. It did hang last night, I was going on the OVI store. Anticipating the firmware update, this phone desperately needs one. When I'm not dealing with online stuff, its fine and smooth. BTW, can anyone tell me where can I change the alarm tone?
I'm really scared now,I'm gonna have my N8 on 11/11 .... & now I'm listening here that it hangs,auto-restarts.... What the fuck is wrong?? I've always used nokia in my life (6600,N91,N96)....Now of them had this sort of problem??? So whats wrong now??? What I'll do now??? Anybody help plz....
this phone has only Lags. I sold my n8 and bought HTC desire. desire is the best android phone. android roksssss.
Amit, 03 Nov 2010I think you shld get a Dark grey colour and i got it 2 days back and it super cool. In reality... morehi amit its sachin here i want to take this mobile it is grt or ok. how is clearity of camera. & wht is the cost of the mobile. plz tell em thanks
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2010well if you like that phone you can go grab one and post in their page, but you need to know t... morei know man that nokia will sure come with updates...but i now had enough with the phone it crashes nd lags which is not nokia standards....so i am willing to sell it...nd taking the iphone4...nd who said man iphone4 is expensive?? its damn cheap..the reason i didn't took iphone is that i love nokia though it was my first nokia touchscreen phone..nd i am pretty dissapointed
in etisalat iphone4 costs 2399dhs(32gb) nd 2049(16gb) nd its officially unlocked
where as n8 costs 2100dhs which is expensive than iphone4 16gb..
all the problems now happening to N8 it due to software issues. The device is really perfect. Nokia will release a new up-date soon. So dont give-up & be patients.
Besides, this issue is very familiar in pre-orders.
I remember when the N900 first launched , itwas like a hell cos of the software, but then a very stable firmware cam-up & not it is perfect.
this is normal with Nokia...
[deleted post]how many time i have to tell you......
comment on facts not on illusions
[deleted post]well if you like that phone you can go grab one and post in their page, but you need to know that Nokia updating the OS regularly and it'll get new UI/browser/tools etc.. and everything will be redesigned. in the end you get what you pay for as iphone4 is much expensive.
If you're used to something you can't live with other alternatives it's the fact, so maybe you're used to iphone then stick with it.
let me make your life easier
n8 dont not lag even with 10 or more app running, it may slow your phone down a bit, but it is not painfully slow
camera and gps on n8 and price are the new real threat to tomtom/garmin , compact digi
multitasjing view is a real eye candy in s3
hdmi is totally awesome working with blurttoth mouse
the rest is normal nokia features with some slight improvements
just hope more decent games coming to nokia symbian 3 phone and that us devepoers start making symbiuan version of their apps like yahoo goolge im mailk flickr, livestation tvupyer, these are free apps, i dont undrrstandwhy they not make app for symbian
did anyone try the software update did it solve any of the early issues
iphone i believe also have built in battery so if you try to remove it you also lose the warranty and your cell coz i think it will damage your iphone.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2010wow nokia just called me up to go collect my preordered n8 tomorrow some basic question... moretry ovi store ther's a lot of free items. initial charge is 4 hours. and test your phone at once coz mine hangs after only 3 days. it a good thing they replaced it at once. nokia's quality is not as good as before.
Andres, 03 Nov 2010Sure we can remove and insert its battery, let's go to watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watc... morePull the battery and void your warranty "YES FOLKS IT VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY", and with the kind of problems that have plagued Symbian OS lately I wouldn't wanna be doing that. Nokia are turning out to be a bit of a joke.
This N97 all over again.
brought this phone yesterday ,i have a htc aria as well . i found this phone pretty good until today when my software gave up the ghost ,returned it now waiting on replacement. i think its pretty good i found the touch screen sorta easy to use.
nokia just called me up to go collect my preordered n8 tomorrow
some basic questions about n8
1.how long should we charge the nokia n8 for the first time?
2. Where can i donwload more wallpaper, classical music ringtone for n8
I had N8 in my hand yesterday. First impresions fine but in detail I saw some disadvantages. Camera interface dissapoints.Uncomfortable like in old ones.No progress. NOKIA look what rivals propose. Video still has no manual control i.e. over exposure that gives over or under exposured shots under some conditions like light motive on dark background or opposite. There is impossible to film black or white walls that does not looks grey/kodak grey card/ It is surprising to me that still best control over video gives Samsung. I own S8300 and even with D1 it is best one.I never have over/under exposed movies with it. As great fan of Nokia still have to keep Samsung in my pocket
deepak, 03 Nov 2010nokia n8 its a great device. Android is too difficult against symbain..and n8 have 2 prosessor... moreDeepak, You've said it right, but with just 1 mistake. I read that people connected a mobile HDD upto 1.5 TB (1 TB = 1024 GB) while the HDD was powered from outside source.
