[deleted post]The x10 might be better for you but it is not for me. IMHO that is. I need a good camera and the n8 can fulfill that. The HDMI port and the USB OTG feature aso is unique to nokia phones and i find it very useful. I'm not persuaded by the android eye-candy cause i know that Symbian OS is a mature platform and the Symbian^3 has improved alot from the previous symbian versions. Double clicking has been greatly reduced, it is now open (unlike the previous Symbian^1), the coding now uses QT which reduces the amount of time and money spent on creating an app. Why in malaysia, i dun see that many android phones around (based on my experiences that is) compared to nokia phones, both smartphones and feature phones. U shud go for the X10 if you think that is better than the N8, and i will go for the n cause i think it is better than the X10. Ok?

I'm very certain that the n8 is not a flagship phone cause nokia did not announced that. The X10 might be smooth but with outdated version of android (outdated=limited support of apps) and the low QVGA resolution (that is low for a touchscreen phone, and aso limited support of apps), it is better off that you dont compare it to the N8. I'm very comfortable with the Symbian OS right now and i dont plan to change to another OS.
Jebas, 18 Oct 2010Are u saw all colors??? Which color is best???I'll go for blue cause thats my favourite colour :p. But the dark grey looks nice too. The silver colour looks to common IMHO.
Nokia N8 available in India, Bangalore, vijayanagar, Nokia Pirority Dealer shop.
It is readily available thro cash or credit card.
I inquired its Price is Rs.23999/- with taxes and also I see the phone. Available on 3 interest free EMIs
Evryone is bashing N8 coz its slow, laggy, browser issue, pinch zoom, UI, etc and another new thing is mid range phone even though u all bloddy bunch of baboons compairing it to ur ishit, fruitberry, samsunga, htc.
Its nokia forum....why you bother. I intend to spend my money on this so called mid-end phone what's ur problem.
Ishit & fruitberry cant even transfer data to other mobile via bluetooth but still its a high end phone.
Samsunga, the ultimate cheap plastic, so strong that it can be compared to alumnized body of N8, right bashers?
Htc, buy one get one free, like buy a HTC u will get a dinner plate free
If u dont like N8 dont buy it why u discouraging others. grow up......

n yes nokia n8 would be good for nokia as they also have alot of brain washed fans similar to iphone but atleast iphone never lags
[deleted post]Every phone has their own problems. Iphone4 with their antennagate issue and their new glassgate prob. Galaxy S and their lags in the early version of their software, not to mention week software support from Samsung. Bada OS and their lack of apps (although now is increasing). The x10 and their outdated android and super late Android 2.1 update. I'm just posting the probs and solutions for the n8 users here seeing how their questions are not answered for a while.

Thanks for ur valuable reply friend.
What about the user interface and other features?
How about the speakers? Is it good?
How about the battery life and operating speed?
Suggest me a colour as well.
Which colour are you using.
[deleted post]Well in my country this phone is more popular than any other phones in the market. Have you even tried one?

This is what I was trying to say in my post, people are expecting to much from the N8 and when they compare the n8 to a high-end phone such as the Galaxy S/Iphone4, they will start to feel disappointed and claim that the phone is a failure. But to me it is a nokia success cause despite its status as a higher middle-class phone, it is comparable to MOST high-end phones. If you dont like this phone then give it a pass and wait for a better phone, nobody is forcing u to buy 1.
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2010its not high end but y its price is the same as htc desire n nexus one n xperia x10???????????... moreIn my country the opening price of the n8 is lower than all of the phones u just said.
Devil_driver, 17 Oct 2010Thanx a lot ... But how can you be so sure? Because still no advertisement in newspaper !! &am... morei had contacted with them(nokia priority)and they said N8 will arrive 2oth Oct.but there is no surety about colors,price will be around 37000BDT. I'm waiting for green one,which color will you buy?
Know problems of the N8 so far and the solutions :
1) Slow and laggy browser
Use Opera mobile or wait for the new QT based browser.
2) No portrait keyboard:
Wait for and update or download swype from ovi store
3) Blur images
Remove the plastic film from the camera lens
Update ur software or (if your a nokia hater) return ur phone and ask for a refund or (if you support nokia) ask for a new unit.
5) Virus has attacked the phone
Try and use a antivirus made for the s60v5, usually most s60v5 apps will work for the n8.
6) No apps
Oh come on! This phone is barely 1 month old. Cant you all wait?
7)Phone freezes while using
Hold the power button for 8 secs.
8) HDMI cable too short
Ask your nokia dealer for a longer one. Usually they will give it for free.
9) U hate this phone so much that ur now posting crap on gsmarena forum
Solution? Easy. GET LOST!
