Hi N8 owners, Are the Apps on Ovi free? or do we have to purchase them?
Also if I use the xenon flash very often, I mean if I take some 50-100 pictures in a day, will my battery last for something like just a day?
If I have to take videos in the dark, is it possible with N8? since there is no LED light, will I not be able to take videos in no light or very less light or in the dark with N8? :(
Please Proud N8 Owners tell me your experience on the above questions. I really wanna buy a N8 , but know I am having second thoughts because of the above questions. Thanx to everyone who answers my queries in advance.
Love N8 but, 22 Oct 2010Hey Mac, Thanks for the Awesome Response!!!! Now I love only N8 and am going for it!!! Yeah ... moreNo problem. Between the 2, the N8 would gather more developers now due to nokias latest statement on your os being updated to the newer symbian ^4 as the developments come out. Your phone os will just get better with time and it now makes sense why they put it into a anodised casing, it was meant to last forever!! Anyway, i'm glad i helped and good luck.
No free good apps in ovi store :(, and some apps are like crap they hang your phone so beware while downloading any free app from ovi store.
I downloaded swype & when i tried to remove it, it automatically changed to yes in settings even i changed to No hufff...
And one morning sype was running & i tried to uninstall it directly & its uninstalled successfully ..
Had a bad experience with Apps really...

How many apps are live including your email? Please also ensure when your phone is idle that you close apps on your multitask window. Having live widgets and having the very same app open serves no purpose and just drains battery. Its similar to having the app open twice. Another thing you can do is install Y-tasks from ovi to monitor open apps that drain battery. The other thing is install Netqin's M-Gaurd. Use this to force close certain hidden apps that add no value to you having them open. If you need those apps again then just open the app again. Toggle between this to manage your phone battery. How long did you charge your battery for on its 1st charge? That would prove critical to your batteries hereforth performance. If it wasnt uninterupted and continuos then that would hinder good battery performance. It is like burning in the batteries total max charge level capability for each charge. Your battery may hence reflect fully charged on the screen but would just drain out fast. Lastly scan for viruses if you have an anti-virus and by the way, if you are browsing alot with your phone with those emails and widgets still running, playing games, and using the power hungry zenon flash too often, then expect power drainage rather quickly.
Mac, 21 Oct 2010Sorry about the late reply. Dont get me wrong. The Vivaz is a great phone. The comparison betw... moreHey Mac,
Thanks for the Awesome Response!!!! Now I love only N8 and am going for it!!!
Yeah Vivaz is good but N8 is Awesome!!!! There is just a very little price difference between the 2, So I'll pay the extra to get the most Awesome phone right now!!! N8 Rockz!!
Really thanks for the response Mac. Really appreciate your effort in helping me make the right choice!
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2010Have been using my n8 for more than 10 days now without a reboot..... Alas reboot is a passee ... moreIts better that u dont connect the Standard charger when N8 is connected via USB to Laptop, because any ways ur battery will be charging when u connect to USB, so need of it to be connected to charger.
Can u please tell me on the Battery Life...After how long it drains....My widgets are always on Online mode & my mails are always syncronizing...My network keeps on switching between GSM & 3G most offen...are thees all the reson for my battery to drain after 10 Hrs?
snonre, 22 Oct 2010U dun care, uh? But i do. What good is a OS with wery apps, imagine symbian, iOS, android and ... moreActually Bada is a hack of android. They just took the android code, changed it a bit and renamed it! Did that so they wont be sued when they abandon android. But knowing samsung, they will just use android to develop their bada os even further. As i said before, they like leaches!! Now bada has come up so that when things go bad with android, they have something to fall back on. Things may just go bad with android and oracle sooner than we think. If that happens then sammy will have bada to milk for all its worth until the os becomes old due to lack of development as a result of probably googles lawsuits etc.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2010bada is 1 of d most unpopular OS which deserves saying "Crap".bada os, sounds like bad os to me....just remove the last letter 'a'. that s bad..uh?

Anonymous, 22 Oct 2010I don't care about number of apps, but User Interface. U dun care, uh? But i do. What good is a OS with wery apps, imagine symbian, iOS, android and windows mobile 7 like that? To me the Bada OS user interface is not my liking (cause it looks alot like android).
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2010bada OS looks way better than Symbian, damn it.It might look better, but can it perform better than symbian? If it is so good, y didnt samsung use it for their galaxy s and future phones? It is not a smartphone OS mind you and the number of apps are still limited. The only reason why the apps are free is because if samsung did charge for their apps for bada OS, the OS will be immediately become unpopular. And dont come saying 'but bada OS has great game', Symbian^3 OS aso has very great games and more are coming soon.
A very funny thing just came to my mind is that why people are so obsessed with speed. At most the difference between any phone would be just a few seconds. What's the big deal? If you were to have a Ferrari and can't or are scared to push it to the limit than why buy it. On the other hand, if you have say a BMW but love to drive it to the max than I think you would really enjoy the BMW.
Are your finger,eyes and brains that fast if the phone gives instantaneous speed. You would still have to look for what you want to touch.
Bada OS is not popular at all. Symbian is the most popular and the oldest OS (apart of windows). If not symbian I will take Android. All the others are a joke.
