"Processor not good". Hey, what planet do you come from? Performance is the result of the combination of the processor and the OS. Symbian does not require billion GHz of processing power. A separate GPU is the key and Symbian's minimal processor requirements. Candy Android and iOS requires gazillion GHz because they're programmed in Java, which is running on top of C++, which is running on top of the native machine language. Symbian is compiled very close to the machine language and hence it does not require the processor that Android and iOS requires. Besides, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO STICK IN YOUR EAR A VERY POWERFUL PROCESSOR AND A VERY POWERFUL BATTERY POWERING IT UP? It's like sticking a microwave into your small brain through your ears! Wake up, earthling!
This phone is fast,robust and it's for power users and for those who understand what marketing did to suckers of iPhone. Funny, but whatever Apple says is 'new', like video calling, these suckers think Apple invented it. Next, when Apple says they have Swype texting, these suckers will again believe Apple invented it. Pathetic iPhone illiterates...
snonre, 20 Oct 2010Attention to all N8 owners: If anyone would like an app or a game in your n8, pls free to ask.I just got n8. and want many games and applications? but how?
snonre, 20 Oct 2010Attention to all N8 owners:
If anyone would like an app or a game in your n8, pls free to ask.is there an app for:
hiding pictures in the gallery in another passworded folder so those pics do Not show up in the main gallery?
Is there an app for hiding text messages (whole conversation with one contact) to another passworded folder?
Is there an app for different message tones for different contacts?
I've terminatated My Orange Pay Monthly contract. Ordered N8 today (Blue) Nokia UK direct + free mini hdmi + free 1mnth phone insurance. T-Mobile £30, 600mins anytime mins, unlimited txts, 1gb Mobile Internet.
Move over Orange, Hello T-Mobile. Couldn't be bothered with PAC switchover from old newtwork to the new. So a new no for me. can not wait for swype final release coming soon to OVI Store for N8. It's available first real soon on OVI Store for C7. This is great news. Swype text should be available to symbian users.
There is one problem I have found out that certain Nokia N8 customers have posted messages on the Nokia conversations forum about their N8 deep freezing. I hope the 6 second hard reset really is working. Because I think they might have mentioned trying this 6 second hard reset.
Does anyone have any knowledge of this. Ofc S^3 is bound to have some issues as its still an official first release OS. Anyway. I have to allow 15 days, maybe more to wait for my N8 to arrive. Maybe I can find a capacative stylus somewhere for the phone. Maybe I'll have to lanyard it.
Bunty, 20 Oct 2010I was thinking about this phone but sony ericsson vivaz is more better than this oneHow can the vivaz be better than this phone, man?
Ahtaque Malik , 20 Oct 2010I'm using iPhone 3gs is n8 a good choice to buy or not Obivously dude coz.........
compare the specs and you will no
I have made many pictures under "good day light" but with covered, a little smoggy sky. the colours of the same pictures with my N900 are much better, even the sharpness.
Diffuse light and reflections cause very bad pictures with the N8. Specially if your center of the picture has good light conditions but you get some reflections or blurred light from on object in the side of your picture, then the N8 creates ugly HALOs.
Thats a fact. Nokia do somethings. I had the same problem with my N97. Actually mu N900 never showed this problem.
Next firmware should cover this issue!!
[deleted post]actually before i set my eyes on N8 i was about to buy wave... but it went out of stock (and as rumor has it all the super amoled has been sold to apple) and to make things right wave II with a 3.7 inch super clear tft ot something is bein released nxt month... so wave seems to be out and still plannin to go wit N8.... thanks for ur openion anyways.....

Why does everybody want Nokia to go Android! I have a Symbian Nokia phone and it is magnificent. I've experienced a bit of Android (HTC Dream) and i don't see it as being any better than Symbian. And on that note, the N8, C7 and C6-01 are beautiful phones.
mk, 20 Oct 2010WoW.. I didnt even know u r after me. Ok anyway. Nokia N8 is the first released smartphone ... moreThanks MK I was not after u. I just wanted soluton to my problem. U have given me the right solution. Now i request u to give me the solution for formatting the memory card. Thanks once again.
Nokia isn't as green as a grown-up kid. When Nokia decided NOT to use Android, I guess there must be SOMETHING WRONG with that kind of OS.
Hope to get my N8 next week,im so dyin of waiting this beauty. :-)
Jack, 20 Oct 2010I have managed to try this phone several times at the Nokia showroom. Here are my opinions. ... moreLike kenrockwell said (kenrockwell.com) on Casio cameras, cameras should be designed by those who are also photographers.Unfortunately it seems programmers move one step forward and two steps backwards. Many cheap phones have very useful features which advanced phones lack.
