I am in great confusion. I was just about to buy N8 from a Nokia priority shop in Cochin, Kerala,India when i heard the phone has to be pre-ordered to get and that too it will take 24k whereas other shop keepers say they will give it for 22,900/- on 22nd oct. Anyways thats not the issue...
When i was in the priority centre i got a chance to check out the new N8 ... but to my utter disappoinment its responce was really really slow... like took 3to 5 seconds to open the apps folder alone... is it normal or is it because it was a defective piece???
please reply... anyone and everyone.. i need all the advice i can get....
thanks and regards
For those of you who doubt the power of the n8, watch this.
If anione wants games and apps for the n8, pls feel free to ask.

This phone has its problems, yes, but its all covered on this site, AAS and similar. He said he canceled his pre-order so why engage him? Let the man buy some other good model with a better camera, better browser, OS...surly his not gonna change his mind now that you pointed those things out now will he?
Need a quick tip i use an E90 and really happy despite the size. Well my recent usage on phones would be something like viewing live charts which is usefull for trading on the stocks. Can any one suggest a phone or a palm top or a browser which can be handy and portable for day to day use while away from the computer.
carol, 20 Oct 2010hi everyone, im so tired reading n8 forum everyday, i dont know who telling honest here, most ... moreOf the things you listed...
-Camera is stunning. Definitely the best I've seen on a phone and beats many pocketcams. Some people have forgot to remove the protective plastic film I think. That will get you bad pictures :)
-Haven't gotten any hangs, crashes or shutdowns yet. There seem to be quite a few trolls here though.
-The phone comes with Xenon flash. That makes it an excellent flash, far better than any dual leds etc. Downside is that it can only "flash" not give constant light. I'll rather take Xenon with this camera.
-So far battery life has been better than other top of the line smartphones, about 1.5 to 2 days when others barely make it a day.
-Battery is more removable than iPhone, but does require opening two Torx screws.
-No problems at all with photoviewer.
-The browser that comes with the phone is not as good as on other smartphones. Nokia has promised a completely new browser though and in the mean time you can just use Opera.
have an N82 which I love very much. I only wanted 2 change my phone for an Iphone or an Android phone, but shortage of funds have limited me. As much as those phones remain better in terms of the software, I will go 4 N8 because of d superior hardware and camera. I've just began 2 save 4 it.

vighnesh, 20 Oct 2010Cant believe nokia, they make these high-end phones dat cost so much but never replace their s... moreSluggish? I think so not. Is not just the numbers only dude. The processor works fine with the symbian^3 on the n8, with minimal, if not zero lags. It is also capable in playing 720p HD video (y not? this phone does record in 720p hd afterall). Of course it cant play full 1080p HD video. (What phone that is currently in the market can do that aniways, be it Iphone4 nor Galaxy S)
Cant believe nokia, they make these high-end phones dat cost so much but never replace their sluggish arm processor, dnt think this phone wud handle HD movies....
What are we gonna do with a dedicated chipset 4 graphics when d cpu itself is gonna cry....
TC, 20 Oct 2010Did you see the youtube video on my link?That was a bias video dude. The fellow tried his best to show the weakness of the n8 and show the so called great stuff of the android. At the end he said that he 'hated the n8', that shows that he already hates the n8 from the start and likes the android better.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2010can some one please tell me if the screen readable under direct sunlightHere is ur answer :
Another first is a Nokia AMOLED display to remain perfectly legible under direct sunlight. Previous attempts were pretty poor on a bright sunny day, but this time they got it right.
The indoor image quality, as is to be expected from an AMOLED unit, is pretty good with deep blacks and nicely saturated colors. Not as impressive as Samsung’s SuperAMOLED screens, but certainly competitive elsewhere.

Some people may think nokia stop making progress, but it is not true,s40 touch type, symbian 3 will help nokia maintain the world leader in low end and mid
end and upper mid end,n8upper mid end phone can even threaten its so called" high end "competitor phones. Nokia make real and quality phones
