[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.
guys , pls support me urgently i need to decide now N8 or samsung I9000 galaxy S , both have same price in KSA but which one is better ?

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.
