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.
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... moreNew up-date is coming soon. It will fix & add many things.
Just waut & be patient
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
I just love having a phone with awesome camera always with me. I've already stored few great memories for the future thanks to this.
sold out at my tesco but got mine and made in finland,,shortly nokia will start shipping hungary and china n8 so glad got in first to get finland made model.OHH and my o2 shop has sold out cause my sister wnts one but now tesco and o2 out of stock where iam,This does not mean its out of stock were you are but ring up first.Voda uk do green one and its vile so glad i got black.
It should drop to 20000 as a christmas special. The thing is, Nokia knew the n8 is ok but did not expect it to do so well from the stat. Now Nokia is busy increasing production to satisfy the huge demand. Many dealers, big and small, took advantage of the delivery shortages and unnecessarly inflated the N8's price.
there r so many reasons to get this phone, fm transmitter, xenon,12mp cam, multi touch,usb on the go and the most important is its resonable price. in kashmir india it is for 22,300.
andy burgin, 02 Nov 2010The N8s camera is not as good as my old Nokia N82 in close up images ,i have tested both toge... moreTheir are LOTS of updates to come and two of the biggest complaints so far are browser and social integration app..Anew browser is due to come out before xmas but i tried to upload to flickr but could not find anyway to do it..I asked flickr for help and they gave me an email address to upload straight to flickr which is fast and does the job.HAVE NOT USE PHOTO MUCH YET BEEN TO BUSY CUSTOMISING n8 AND VIDEO IN HD AND PLAYING IT THRU TV AS WELL AS BROWSING WEB ON TV THRU HDMI.
As yet still no crash or any probs accept above reports,i use web with images and flash disabled unless i need to look at an image ..The usb tog will get dab radio and dvb-h tv tuners and more to come,my desk fan works off n8 usb otg.
