I owned and owning the HTC Desire, BB 9800, iPhone and had experience with most other phones such as Samsung Galaxy S and Wave. I had to buy the Nokia N8 since i bought Nokia for over 15 years and had to stop buying about two years ago due to many problems. Anyhow, I think N8 is great phone compare with other Nokia phones in past but it is not as good a my other 3 phone. The quality of phone, Camera are great. But problem is the Old and outdated OS by Nokia. Even gsmarena admit this i their review. Why Nokia no start with new generation of OS and give up on Symb.?
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2010I have done a complete 180 degree turn on my opinion of Nokia and the N8. Before I got it I wa... moreWell I am going through all the n8 user reviews, I was planing to buy n8 because of features.once I read ur review i thought not to buy.OK now I am looking forward to buy one of these Iphone4 , HTC hd2 or htc desire.Pls advice what to buy.

Everything has to go to end after so many years that i why Symb. OS is no longer good and popular. Everything by time change can not sell same OS for so many years. Before software tech was not so advance and now is. So, Nokia has to let go and Adopt to new OS made by them or outside source. Even can see in gsmarena suggest same about Nokia Symb is outdated and behind Androind, and iSO 4. why you guys so closed minded and no help Nokia do better in future instead want to stay with the old thing
Symbian Count down, 26 Oct 2010_http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/25/symbian-foundation-winding-down-operations/Symbian will still be developed under nokia's roof...
i keep on laughing, reading some bashing comments... don't get to obvious bashing N8 then promoting other brands haha... poor all of you! all i can say is that don't purely rely on this thread... make experience on your own and you'll know the truth!
Subho, 25 Oct 2010Lots of pinoys buying N8.Because there are still a lot of pinoys who are smart compared to the jejemons and pa-cute guys who don't know what smartphone is.
I've had it for over a week now. Amazing device!!! Well worth the long wait
Dwane, 26 Oct 2010Thank you for your advise but the only thing I put on the phone was my contacts! look at the b... moreSorry to hear about your experience. But my experience is contrary to yours, I had Nokia since 3210 model and never had experience lagging or hanging. Exception is my N82 now which I experienced hanging because it felt down hard to the ground at least 5 times now but before that it was great. I packed-in a lot of applications in it and it functions well. Multitasking, well, how is it to run a Call manager on the background, virus scanning and playing movie at the same time without hanging. That is why I still keep my N82 but for a lesser function and I had purchased a new N8, so far so good but too early to judge its overall quality.
dell hav blk N8 on sale for $450 +free shipping, whoever want it u better act fast! im in the process of ordering as im writing this!!!! wooo

Android OS is a half-breed Linux, it is popular now because it's new, let's see if it will last long like the Symbian OS does. And one more thing, pray that Google wins the left and right lawsuit filed regarding copyright infringement of their Android OS, if they lost Android OS will die very young.
Leave aside iph4 i don't think even droids can beat that...
Read the qt news on nokiablog, the developers say its very easy for them to create better looking ui with the kit, and its too easy to write codes. Developers familiarize qt code very easily and develop gem of app. Some great games like avatar, hero of sparta, nfs are good examples. We never saw games exceeding 100mb on mobiles.
i dont care about what people said i still like this phone. its nothing wrong with this phone. best NOKIA phone. some people out of mind their brain dont work any more they just talk about rubbish about this phone but I always Love Nokia & I have respect for them for showing their efforts & hard work.
Hat's on Nokia
Hat's on N8
Love you Nokia I will definetly buy this phone once I have complete money in my pocket ;-)

I know some like n95 and n97 did hang.
I got my n8 last week and its just blazing fast. I've on an average 5app continuesly running and not a single lag till now...
I've been using Nokia so called top end Phones , just name it . from E series to N series and now the C series.
The facts that Nokia phone is slow and hangs frequently exits in all the models that I used.
They can upgrade this and that firmware , but they will never solve the problem of lagging and hanging.
This N8 will be just another flop lika N97.
Some of the countries the launching is still being delayed.
Still can buy Nokia , but not smartphone.
Enough is Enough.
ive got my N8 friday but give it a goood try all weekend but still got lots to explore.Its an impressive smartphone,hardware is awsome,lots faster than my N97/N97mini and 5800,the fone is responsive.all i can say is if you love Nokia then stay loyal,there on the way up+ all symbian4 updates and future tweaks,superb.
