Anonymous, 03 Nov 2010heys guys..i went to a nokia priority dealer and used this phn..it seemed a bit slow..dun knw ... moreWith demo phones you should check that there aren't million apps running in the background. Those can and will slow it down.
Here is a link to someone dropping N8 3 meters to concrete and only getting 2 tiny scratches.
N8 is usual Nokia quality. Might break if something hits hard on the center of the screen but usual drops etc. it can handle.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2010heys guys..i went to a nokia priority dealer and used this phn..it seemed a bit slow..dun knw ... moreThe pieces in the Nokia Priority stores are the ones that go thru a lot of torture. everyone who comes, takes a picture or two, fiddles with settings and stuff, and very few apps are installed by the store guys, to let you know the full potential of the phone. this phone is actually good !!!
the Glass , FYI , is GOrilla Glass. it is very difficult to scratch it, leave aside breaking it.
this phone is definitely worth a buy and has a superb Hardware. Nokia has promised to keep giving proper SOFTWARE(not just simple firmware) upgrades, so this platform is quite safe to buy.
heys guys..i went to a nokia priority dealer and used this phn..it seemed a bit slow..dun knw y...ws slow in opening apps...touch ws gr8..and he said as its a amoled screen so it is bit delicate and can break on falling...bt i still cant convince myself frm nt buying this phn...so plz help me out...is it true about the screen and the slow performance....
leah, 02 Nov 2010can i ask, when you receive a text message on this phone, do you get the usual nokia standard ... morethere's a widget you can use which is "missed events" .. when there's a missed call or msg it will say who its from... i like it
Aaron, 03 Nov 2010Anybody can confirm? They say you can no longer edit song details and album arts in the music ... moreyeh that is true... i was quite surprised to find that i couldnt edit song details through the player.. hope they fix it because that is slightly important to me.. not something to cry about but u know what i mean
When super surround app for symbian arrives i buy n8 but only samsung make concert hall settings and windows has srs wow and new windows 7 srs wow ,why no super surround app for symbian.??? its got stereo widening but that useless.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2010I'm having a hard time choosing the color for my N8, anyone wanna help? I got it narrowed down... morei had to make the same desision...i bought the blue one as it was surprisingly different while the silver one looked pale in comparison..the blue one stands out just the right amount without being too flashy...
Anyways, it is up to what suits your personality. That is the reason we have such wonderful choices
Anybody can confirm? They say you can no longer edit song details and album arts in the music player on N8. Is it true? I hope Nokia enables those functions on the next firmware update.
The smart dailing feature which is supposed to be a default feature does not work. I send the phone to a Nokia service centre, and even they could not get it working - N 8 not so smart
NOKIA N8 EPERIENCE UPDATE
ON the last note I said; the constant asking for network connection has been disabled! yay!
If anyone is experiencing the same thing and don't know what to do, here;
go to settings, click on application settings, click on positioning. From there you can choose your preference of how your phone can lock on a gps satellite. I have left it to only INTERGRATED GPS.
LETS TRY NOT TO TALK SO MUCH CRAP AND FIND SOLUTIONS
I'm having a hard time choosing the color for my N8, anyone wanna help? I got it narrowed down to Blue and Silver
NOKIA N8 experience update;
Opera is surprising worse than the standard nokia browser. Opera crashes in certain webpages ex. Facebook, yahoo mail, metro. Just now, it crashed and restarted. Nokia browser is ok but an even BETTER ok at the moment.
Whether on camera with gps location on, or on ovi maps, it's CONSTANTLY asking you to choose a network to connect to. VERY ANNOYING.
