I am really disappointed with this phone. I was using a nokia 5800 before this and was expecting nokia to do a complete revamp of the ui but unfortunately the only better thing is the homescreen everything else-browser,menus- are the same. I am a fan of nokia and symbian but i think symbian touch phones really haven't been as good as symbian non touch phones used to be. Symbian needs a complete revamp like Win mobile did to WP7. Symbian is still gr8 but really sucks at useability. Symbian has been providing all the levels of customizability that the android provides now since the n70 was launched. Its just that they are having sum trouble to adjust to touch. Hope they do figure it out soon.
All you N8 buyers watch out,as its happened to me,just putting new contacts on my sim card an the N8 as Frozen an can not turn it off at All,an because of the Stupid battery idea from Nokia,you use to able just remove the batteries on other Nokia phones an put it back in an the phone would turn back on,but mine justs shows the Clock an Date an nothing else works,so now going to return my N8 an see if it can get Repaired,so the first batch of N8s released might also freeze so watch out
[deleted post]Well said! After all ,it's about our preference. No use in trying to convince others that one OS is bettert than the other.
The most important thing for a phone is the hardware coz you can't upgrade at all. Can a iPhone upgrade to 8Mp camera or HDMI port? Nooooo!
So if people are complaining about the Symbian 3 well to me its great but with software Nokia can just send an upgrade to improve the phone OS. We all know Nokia support is good unlike Samsung. I wonder when will Samsung Galaxy S get an upgrade well maybe next year. Or maybe when they discontinue the phone.
Battery life is good...Camera is excellent. It's the best possible camera...but where is the converter? This mobile doesn't have the simple converter software which even a 25 dollar mobile would be having. Converter is so essential for quick area/weight volume conversions these days...
why is it that charger is not fixing properly.
Anyone else facing this problem??

Please go for N8..........its amazing phone.
The users esperience has been much improved from n97,
i am planning to buy n8 just 1st december, hope the new firmware update with new ovi maps, new swype, new nokia internet radio and new ovi browsers,
This is the best phone from Nokia till date. The user experience is excellent and is very easy to handle. The camera is amazing and gives you a relief from carrying any camera on tours, coz its just as professional as a good digital camera. The price is very attractive. I have not come across any panics or defects. I use it on data and emails, it works fantastic. However, the browser could have been much better and could have been equipped with a QWERTY on the vertical mode (it offers QWERTY in landscape mode. Well done Nokia!!! It offers very good experience with social networking as well.
Aaron, 18 Oct 2010To the people complaining this phone not having this and that feature, you can't have everythi... morethe n8 has the best 12MP camera for a smart phone ,may be the best built quality but it is not currently the best and most powerful mobile device,the phone has many software issues and are more noticeable by people who are using iOS or andriod phones,and less noticeable by nokia users .
this is n8 forum for posting the pros and cons of the phone so people will know what they are going to buy.
also for solving the problems that might face the users,so it is very stu*pid to say n8 is the best phone because this is considered promotion ,and will lead to bashing by the apple,samsung,SE or htc users.
these are some reviews of the n8:
and here is a link for a comparison between android and symbian 3:
