Had taken this phone after selling my GALAXY S!
and i regret it to the core!
This phone though looks awesome,it is exact opposite in performance!
I know the OS is fast and all, but compared to android its very bulky!
it doesn't have that feel, if u know what i mean!
overall compatibility is good!
Nokia is expert in that field.
Wave is a better option that N8..
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2010Hey n8 users-Please confirm
qwerty keyboard in portrait
No qwerty except in landscape.
However there is an app in ova for slide typing and it does what you want
This phone can play rmvb video format, my n97 mini has a chinese made rmvb player, but they have stop developement, sad
any great developers out there, make a video player that play rmvb, it is popular in asia
I notice that the edge between glass screen and body cover is not well built!
Maybe it is made in china?
Sails, 22 Oct 2010Of course there are lots of Android phones available. All the smaller manufacturers switched s... moreA valid point Sails!! I just think that phones using Android are in the know as to what and how the market is growing. Win7? Erm...will give it a pass as most everyday people have no need for the type of functionality and operating system.Long and short end of the story is that Nokia seriosly need to up there game as their name won't carry them forever!!
Jaws, 23 Oct 2010Hey, although I'm not an owner (yet), I can tell you that there is no portrait qwerty keyboard... moreThere are loads of keyboard apps out there that offer portrait qwerty and predictive text input with auto correction. Thats why you have google.
I am buying N8 on 29october ! Which 1 is better ? Silver white or Blue ???

Akchaya, 23 Oct 2010I have bought N8 on Sunday, it suddenly stopped working today...it is not responding, it is no... moreJust hold the power button down for 8 seconds an your N8 will then turn itself off,wait till the phone comes back on an it should be o.k after that,as mine FRoze an ran Nokia Care on 08450455555,an since then my N8 as been running o.k,as you do not want to remove the battery yourself or you will lose the warranty on your N8,hope this helps you out
[deleted post]I don't know about the other models you gave but I totally agree that N82 was the best 5MP camera phone. I had it for 2 years now and I still love it. Now a new brother of N82, the N8 was born and I grabbed it also but still too early to compare which one I will like most.
I have bought N8 on Sunday, it suddenly stopped working today...it is not responding, it is not getting charged...neither getting hard reset..
David891, 23 Oct 2010Can someone who already has the phone give his experience with the xenon flash? Is it really ... moreYes, it will do very well even in low light or bright sunlight (i recommend to use flash under sunlight to eliminate the shadows). I have N82 with same carl zeiss optic and xenon flash and it gives me digital camera like photos and to think that my N82 is only 5MP while N8 is a whopping 12MP.
[deleted post]and that thing only has a SINGLE LED FLASH so it won't be usefull in lower light situations at all.
[deleted post]since this is N8 page, I don't and nobody cares about sony.
Can someone who already has the phone give his experience with the xenon flash?
Is it really bright? like compared to dual LED?
And can you make clear pictures from like 3/4 meters, where led flashes dont range far enough.
Check this out! Portrait QWERTY keyboard on the n8!!! omg! I don't understand why they left it out in the released version!
