Tanvir_666, 02 Nov 2010Pre-ordered my N8 .... Gonna get it on 11/11 .... Can't wait.... But I'm a bit afraid to know ... moreDon't install the software not published by Nokia Ovi. If phone hangs or restart after installing a new software app, remove it immediately.
There are bound to be few people who end up with broken N8 since it is such a popular phone. Still much rather use Nokia than any of the other manufacturers. Nokia has by far the best hardware.
Here is a nice study showing that almost every 6th iPhone user ends up with broken phone within a year.
People actually willingly buy iPhones?
I am using N8 for last 5 days. I am little bit confuse about of my N8’s battery performance. I am not very much heavy user of it.
My general uses are like –
15 – 20 minutes phone call, Web browsing through WIFI 40 – 50 minutes, video watching 15 – 25 minutes, gaming 15 – 20 minutes, audio playing 15 – 20 minutes, photo shooting with flash 5 – 15, video recording 5 – 10 minutes.
Every day I put it for charring around 9 PM. That time it contains 30% of battery life.
What you think? Is it ok or I have to visit Nokia showroom. Please advice.

SO GLAD!!! When this device got launched I was one of the first people to get this, however...I experienced problems straight away and gave my views on this forum but MANY people didn't believe me and think I was a Steve Jobs fan!!! Surely many people like you and I having problems can't be slating off the N8 and really are having issues with this phone! I would stress out to all those who haven't yet purchased one to think again! For those who really think that this is the DREAM handset, I'm sorry to say that but you'll be SO disappointed! Oh, don't take my word for it...try it yourself and see if your going to return it!!! I did!

Nokia N8 is one of the worst handset I have ever had... I was the one who was promoting this device to everyone before launch and after launch but this Nokia people have screwed me.. with a week of purchase my handset was continuously resta...rting for a minimum 30-40 times in a day.. I took it to care center and they flashed it but nothing worked..
Later they told they need to send the handset to Delhi Head Office, which was sent on 27th And nothing happened till now, Its just revert is going on is shown from last 4 days..
I wont entertain this kind of service, I would move towards a legal action on this as I have a Job Sheet which says Target Deadline for handset is 25th of October and today is 2nd Nov..
The customer care guys told me If you want you can go ahead with the Legal Case.. This is what Nokia is doing in India now..
Pre-ordered my N8 .... Gonna get it on 11/11 .... Can't wait.... But I'm a bit afraid to know that some sets are freezing/auto-restarting ..... I dont wanna be 1 of those unlucky owners.... Coz this is my dream-set,though a bit more ram & a new UI would make me even more delighted...But who cares??? It's still N8 .... The monster N8..... \m/
Got my N8 Yesterday and its Amazing Technology, all those out there iphone users get lost coz your dad has come in the market to meet your moms...
enjoy N8 Users... We rock...
plz respect people oppinion here...they said what they think......
n8= is smart phone
smart phone= smart people
dont buy this phone...because its perfect, and i want to have the privilege of being one of the few owners of this masterpiece :)
n8 is a xelent fone in nokia.no problem in using dis fone.bit xpensiv but can take by closing our eyes.my rating is 10.....
Cpsathar, 02 Nov 2010I bought this phone last week with 24k and dead next day!Lets get some facts here,did you charge fone ??Why are you not returning it to where you bought it from for refund.faulty returns on n8 have been found to be user error via my service center pals.Other returns have been for personnel reasons like change of mind.
Can you return a fone to Tesco for refund hes had it 2 weeks but john my mate just does not like it ? Thats his decision tho, i am fine with mine but i am not bullying him to keep it.He loves his blackberry but cannot comment because ive never used blackberry hes going for the torch if he can get refund.Tech blogs are saying the screen is poor on torch so could take mickey out of him but each to their own,if hes comfortable with BB and it does what he wants from a mobile then i respect that/..
To sum up if you are coming from another platform i can see how confusing and complex symbian is ,so,get your fone swapped for something YOU want and does the job for YOU.A 12 megapixel is not going to help a buisnessman get contracts when his main use of mobile is email/txt or instant communications,BUT,neither is the htc good for peole listening to podcasts cause their tranducers are rubbish and cameras.

Cpsathar, 02 Nov 2010I bought this phone last week with 24k and dead next day!Oww, common nobody believes that lies here...especially the real N8 owners...just stay where your phone is then you're fine, you're just adding to the popularity rating of N8..hahahahaha!!
Well I have just ended my 6 month association with my N97 mini. I didn't have too much of a bad run with it but it really let me down over the last few weeks. I've taken the jump and got an N8 - The charcol coloured one. Pretty pleased so far and adjusting to the change. The biggest thing I'm happy about is that I can now play Angry Birds. I was so close to getting an Iphone 4 but couldn't bring myself to do it. There are a couple of things that do annoy me:
1) When typing a long message it's a bit fiddly to go back and review what you have typed - instead of scrolling it highlights.
2) Like everyone else, I can't wait for the Portrait keyboard
3) When hooked up to the computer you can't copy files to the phone memory - strange.
4) You can't use MP3's on the phone memory as ringtones - strange. The songs appear in the music player but will not appear when you try to add them as a ringtone. When I moved the songs to the mass memory they were instantly available.
5) In File Manager it takes a bit to get used to a holding your finger on an item to get more options.
6) OS is still too similar to N97.
On the plus side:
1) I've only taken one photo and am impressed how quick it was to focus and save.
2) I can read the display outside!! Let me say that again - I can read the display outside.
3) Build quality looks excellent. I just don't like the HDMI port cover.
4) Multi tasking is so much better than N97
5) It is much quicker
