Here's my latest experience with the N8:
1) Ovi Player and the n8 performs flawlessly together. Transferred some 5-6 songs and it took 10-15seconds. Putting up album art makes your song collection on the N8 pretty cool.
2) Making phone calls from the contacts list takes too many steps. The 5800 was easier to use. The maps integration with contacts' address is really cool.
3) Could not install cryptograf messaging(for sending encrypted sms) on the N8. Many complex apps are still not re-coded for symbian 3^.
4) Connection manager is great but finding the destinations feature was hard. It's in settings>connection>settings>destinations.
5) The camera is great. Hardware is tough and feels great.
6) Widgets on the homescreen are a great feature.
7) Email works great but be sure to set your internet destinations properly for a speedier and cheaper connection.
8)Photo editing is very useful for simple task.

Future N8 Owner, 22 Oct 2010Nokia 5030, Samsung Guru E2120, LG GS155 are some mobiles with a Built in antenna for FM radio... moreOk, but that are all old phone models. The latest model that I know with built in antenna is the Nokia X3.
But a built in antenna takes a lot of space, so I guess that's the reason why no modern smarthphone has it.
Does the N8 support Nokia Messaging or not . I launch the mail application and put in my email address and password but there are no emails being pushed.
If you go to Nokia Messaging on your pc and sign up for Nokia Messaging you are asked to select which phone you are using but the N8 is not on the list.
I am convinced the N8 does not support Nokia Messaging.

There are even a number of Mobiles other than these. But let's please keep the discussion in the forum to N8.
raj, 22 Oct 2010`i could not find any games in my N8...!!!go to ovi store there are many games availale for free like angry birds,nfs shift etc
the n8 beats alot, but it lacks a fiew jabs to be the best. A 1Ghz. Processer would be perfect, and a keyboard. The browser for the N900 was SUPERB!!! I hope u bring the symbian browser up to that level, or build the linux suport because it could compete or even overthrow the android os. I just think nokia should look into that
Future N8 Owner, 22 Oct 2010Thanx DK and Thanx, Well, Anonymous for helping me out with the answers.
I will have to say I... moreYou said even a cheap ass phone can run FM Radio without haedset, but could you give some examples?
Cause to be honest I never heard of a phone able to do this. When I had my good old SE W810i, I hacked it so it didnt require headset anymore for FM. But it only worked a little when I pulled the pin of the headset plug, where normally the antenna goes, on my body to function as antenna.. But please give me some examples of phones with good FM radio without headset.

Just pay for restocking I guess. I know it's a big deal for such a high end phone and for the price too but fo me it's all worth it.
dk, 22 Oct 2010Cool down bud he's a newbie, he understood the matter, now let there be peace on the forum guy... moreThanx dk,
I thought this forum was to help others with the experience you have with the phone and answer the queries put in by people who want to buy that phone.
I seriously do not understand why people take it so personally, They should be either totally immature or moronic or they just want to start an argument with useless comments to waste everybody's time.
Hey Listen Guys, As my name suggests, I am going to buy the N8 but just waiting for the new swype keyboard and firmware upgrade, in the meantime I Just want to know what is the experience other people are having with the N8.
So stop being Jerks and have a Life, than trying to showoff ur f ' word capabilities on this Forum. If you cannot maintain the decency, Just get out and remember no one asked you for your useless opinion!
