[deleted post]i could also say that i have the iphone4 and galaxy s. My n8 has been working fine and havent encountered any major probs just yet (i reinstalled my phone firmware as soon as i got my n8). what are the probs that ur facing in your ex-n8?
I am from India, i baught Nokia N8 on october 25th. I never had any issue until now with my n8 just hanged once that too while using the panorama caturing tool. My battery life is so good. even with heavy usage i complete 2 days with 30% remaining. 1 do 45-1 hr calls per day and 30 mins of web and 1 hr of music. Once i got complete 3 days. Software is very impressive in my standards. i dont like all the animations...For me the phone works for what i baught it for...calls..emails..web..networking...even games is so awesome that my laptop cannot give me the feel...
When you are having problems with phones/computers, the order you should check things through are:
1. If you miuse the phone in certain ways, and check your manual and learn how to use it properly
2. If you install some malfunction or incompatable applications that leaks memory or makes cpu busy loop and eventually will cause the phone/computer to behave hanging or restart or shut down.
3. Check if you have installed all the latest updates for bug fixes
Hardware fault usually is not so common and the least to consider.

- avoid half and incomplete charges.
- try to drain battery to the fullest, don't charge before its completely drained out
-switch wifi or 3g off when u don't require it
-close open app, as they drain a bit of processing power
-avoid vibration, its a huge battery drain.
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!
Me myself and I, 02 Nov 2010Well I have just ended my 6 month association with my N97 mini. I didn't have too much of a b... moredude those are bugs it can be easily rectify thru F/W upgrades..

PEACE BE UPON YOU
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..
