wanderer70, 28 Oct 2010i just bought n8 last week , i use not more than 1 week, today my phone can't switch on alread... moredony believe you ,have you charged it up,did you take it back to the store please tell us exactly what happened and your outcome????
I'm an owner of an N97 mini and looked at an N8 in store today. I have to say the OS didn't seem much different to my N97 mini in terms of look and feel or speed. I have to say It's put me off at the moment because all the untidy aspects of the N97 OS are in the N8. The phone I tested was fresh out of the box nd I could already pick up jerky laggy response. The screen is nice. I know the metal case and glass is meant to be scratch resistant but I wondering how durable the top and bottom are. These are probably the most vulnerable area of the phone. Being painted plastic I wonder how they will stand up to bumps and knocks. Can anyone who has an N8 offer their feedback on this?
i just bought n8 last week , i use not more than 1 week, today my phone can't switch on already. really disappointed with nokia n8..........

Anonymous, 27 Oct 2010I've used symbian before and never had problems off switching or resetting before. Why? Restarting is symbians natural response to resource depletion. Though i doubt thats the case as i still can't comprehend how anyone would deplete 256mb of ram in sane usage. Could be a software glitch or a virus. But switching off? You should see some service personnel. If you can't and it gets worse, try this.
. . .
Switch the phone off, hold down the volume minus(-), camera and menu keys then press the power button and hold these four keys down until the screen displays the nokia logo. This would delete all data on the phone and restore it back to how it was on purchase. Hope that was helpfull
Joyse, 28 Oct 2010Actually the video camera in the N8 is definitely more usefull then the one in my Galaxy S. In... moreThe galaxy i had does indeed have auto focus in video mode like vivaz but unfortunatly when changing depth of field you have to wait for auto-focus to focus,so its a good idea but if your out filming like i did with galaxys and vivaz pro a lot of the footage comes out blurred.In theory if you were doing an outside report filming a newscaster at same distance from vivaz or SGS then it would have great results but video means moving action and thats where these 2 fail
The n8 is using very much like EDOF cameras and its down to the superb optics,algorithms and gpu that give better depth of field results BUT the n8 wont focus good close up "but" in my tests its very good.
The special video digital zoom on N8 works just like n86 by using more of the sensors pixels to create the zoomed image so it stays sharp.A lot of this would not be possible without the GPU kicking in to help plus the GPU kicks in to push the hi-def footage to your tv else nokia would have had to up the CPU which is no use in symbian cause of its superb optimisation and coding,therefore a smaller GPU with graphics co-prossessor works a dream..
There are updates to come and nokia will tweak this even more i hope they add some dolby digital or SRS WOW to mp3 player and add make your own presets like all s60 handsets have.
I can understand folk just getting N8 seeing series 60 5th edition there and having a few fotos done and bit of video and saying boring.If you take the trouble to set it up as your own smartfone and not how other people want you too and get all your screens wallpapers all set up and enjoy the N8 it gets better and better.Its your smartfone nobody elses,just cause they are using a superb 3d game and using facebook does not mean to say you have too cause i dont...I dont use face book and use timewaster games getting personnel best scores are my gaming needs plus i dont use a car so dont need sat nav.I am going to try angry birds tho.
Up to now (as in earlier n-series) whats on the fones screen is on tv so maybe angry birds at 24inches??? Who knows browsing internet on bigscreen plus with bonfire night and xmas coming up theirs all thats goodness to capture...Brynn
i got my n8. it is a amazing phone..very fast..the toch respone just great..disply is like hd..it is totally diffrent form old symbian.... one thng is not up to the mark is battery backup. once charge in a day... u can insert pendrive directly into the phone through a connector given in the box. i love the phone.

Hey N8 owners - Need For Speed Shift HD - game for free at Ovi store - amazing download for free....seriously!!!
Actually the video camera in the N8 is definitely more usefull then the one in my Galaxy S. Indeed the Galaxy has auto focus, but I wish it did what nokia did. The auto focus blurrs the image every time I change from near to far scenes like when shifting left and right. Further,the zoom in the n8 is out of this world for a cell phone. How did they do that. On full zoom my Galaxy S is nowhere near the N8 in picture quality. And that's a sad fact :-(
So many haters has been bashing on Nokia n8, Actually was is it all about, symbian looks outdated, Iphone hasn't change its ui since it came out. Browsing is not as fast compared to ios or Android but you can still be well satisfied with it. The Nokia haters still fails to point out the things you can do with your Nokia N8 that no other phone can dream of. I still baffle why iphone is so popular couse i found it totally boring as a phone no customising no file sharing with other phones. If you like your ios or android so much why bothering posting here cuz you which the browser was as smooth as your android or ios so that you can dump whatever phone you are using in the gabbage. Real Nokia users won't stand using Iphone 4 neither Samsung galaxy s. The only phone that comes close to Nokia n8 is the BB torch 9800. So you Nokia haters go on whichever phone page you are using to adore it and leave Nokia alone....I love the ui of the Nokia n8, if you are saying Nokia sucks on browsing the compare your Iphone 4, htc desire hd and samsung galaxy s with Nokia N900.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2010I charge the phone. I do not even use it leave on my desk within 24 hours Battery run out 90%. You are not telling the truth.
superb phone, wanted to go for wave but now totally satisfied with this nd will buy this only and it is also fast nd not like my friends n97. its super cool phone nd i advise everyone to go for it if u can. n8 rocks
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2010I never said i dont believe you... I said i was talking in general.. You owe me an apology ... moreOk, sorry buddy...but in your two previous posts it was more or less aiming at me! I know this site can be frustrating as many come on here just to bash N8 whether they have the handset or not and it puts us genuine guys lurking in the dark if we needed real advice!
