Hi Bryn & Frankie good to see some common sense comments around here.
Bryn you say you have owned |N8| for a week now. You mention 1 bad point that makes me question it.
The touch screen, how good is this & your perception or experience of using the multi touch. Nokia are merging the S^3/S^4 into one constantly evolving changing system. Nokia asre sure to make multi tocuh work aswell as apple & android some day soon with the updates which will soon be available no doubt.
Also I have one question for you Brynn & Frankie. I am a proud owner of N5800. The stereo loudspeakers are very good. Is the phones music output through it's Mono loudspeaker likely to let us down. Or does it sound as impressive as the N5800?
It's a little bit concerning me as I have ordered the phone from Nokiadirect anyway?
Frankie_76, 26 Oct 2010Its really very funny see the Iphone and Samsung lovers, tell about the goodness of these phon... moregood post and shows others that YOU are buying the fone for YOUR needs and not what society,others,techblogs or statistics show.I dont have a car so dont need gps but its built in these days as normal ,BUT,someone else may be wholly reliant on gps and need their smartfones capabilities tending towards decent gps..
I am not hooked into the gamail google thing so android annoys me and just use generic emails but love my smartfone tending towards powerfull multimedia so hence people banging on about htc devices are no good to me,poor speakers/cam/video/audio..I always use nokia but dont expect everyone else too.
Fed up with rubbish comments like 1ghx proccessor when symbian dont need it and altho symbian will be confusing to a newbie its because over the 7 years symbian inmcludes so much its bound to look complex..
Out of the you box get voice synthesisers,converters,documents readers/adobe reader,dictionary,zip unlocker, and tonnes more right out of the box..Its all got to go somewhere.
Ive secretly had this a week even tho hate touch and its doing bloody good..Yes it needs some setting up but that half the fun..I think simple people should be warned off symbian and put on simpler o/s to suit them.
Can you use the front facing camera, in camera mode so you can use it as a mirror?
This was possible in symbian 3rd devices (like my N85)

as you said, N8 is the best when it comes to upgrading from N95/8GB and 5800/N97.
Its really very funny see the Iphone and Samsung lovers, tell about the goodness of these phones. Ho Cares? Ho ask? Look.. i have a Nokia N95. And I love it so much. I want replace it, for another one, but it mas improve all the specs. (Not the infrared). So i make an "Advanced Search" into this page (gsmarena offcourse). So.. I select only this option:
Display Colors: 16M (Same as N95)
Display Size: 3.0" or more (more than my N95)
Display Tec : OLED more than my N95)
Camera: 8Mpx or more (more than my N95)
Camera Flash: Xenon (Its really important for me)
Video Recorder: 720P (more than my N95)
Secondary Camera: Required (Same as N95)
Mem. Card : Required (Same as N95)
GPS : Required (Same as N95)
WI-FI : Required (Same as N95)
Bluetooth : Required (Same as N95)
Radio : Required (Same as N95)
(Plase.. look.. I dont care about Symbian, Ios, BADA, Android, or anything like that. Check your self)
And there are 2 phones listed.. N8 and a Samsung (not realesed yet). I dont have any doubt about this.. i'm waiting for the N8 !! =D
About the "Video Light".. If your video recorder have good light sensivity, dont need a video Light. Do you see it in modern and expensive camcorders?? only "Night shot" or similar technolgy.. or not?
I take pictures with WAVE, with Milestone, with IPHONE at NIGHT. Or in a Club.. and the quality of that picture ar awful.. But my N95 take every one incredible.. i hope the N8 have the same quality at poor light than my N95.
PS: Sorry for my english.. :P

No video light Camera interfac... moreno video light because it's useing zenon flash
the bulb will burst if you leave it on too long

Symbian^3 is still behind Android and iOS usability standards
No video light Camera interface is decidedly outdated
Relatively limited 3rd party software availability
No office document editing (without a paid upgrade
Video player has some issues Battery life is not on par with best in the business Battery is not user-replacable
Thereís certainly a lot of pressure on the Nokia N8. People are probably expecting more from it than the very guys who designed it. But the N8 was never meant to compete with the iPhone 4 or the Galaxy S. At least, thatís what Nokia will gladly have you believe. You see, with the Nokia N8 itís not about who the competition is. Not about the business benefits of a smartphone, not about the available apps. Itís about the best camera in the business.

have you used the moto v360
the loud speaker is on the back of the phone
and you know what happens when it's placed on a flat surface
the sound rechotes off the surface and the sound is projected
guys thr is a very big prblm with n8 the battery is not replaceble if your set hang during internet or other applications then you r not able to do switch of mobile at that time and if it switch off then it not able to switch on this is my personal experience. camera guality is very good applications not open fast like android phones processer is very slow. internet experience is very bad!
sanraz, 26 Oct 2010yes i totally agree..it shud hav been 1ghz and 512mb at least..a real future proof phone..but ... moreJust to add to your information mate:
( Symbian doesn't need much Ram & Ghz to run. Symbian is lighter compared to Android, therefore you will see N8 & the coming E7 are very fast with slandered Ram & Ghz.
Of-course if it: 512 Ram & 1Ghz,, this will be great but even with the current Ram & Ghz, the N8 is more than enough.
i think it is the best cell phone meeting all requirements for youngsters,business man etc etc,,,,,
about its fame simply no doubt ..........(ZQ)
i have owned this finally i just love it muahhhhhhhhhhhhhh bt my frnds can u plz tell me is this a serious matter if it is restarting sometimes
Gitty, 26 Oct 2010It has 256mb ram,it uses virtual ram of 768mb ! Agree with processor,it should be atleast 800mhz !what do you mean virtual ram? is it like a computer?
I would advise you guys to always buy your phones from the agent him self. Even if it is expensive by 20-50 Dollars or, but better to buy fake ( by accident ) then you waste all ur money.
