Anonymous, 17 Oct 2010best ever multimedia phone .....galaxy is made of cheap plastic yes the galaxy s is made of plastic to give the phone a light weight only 119 g,for playing your movies on your phone screen nothing better than 4" super amoled screen.
the built quality of the n8 and the still camera are much better but the android is the winner,check this video comparing android to symbian 3:
can n8 run meego....
when.... nokia starts releasing the meego phones?
i have been using n3250 for years, then shifted to windows mobile 6.1 standard, then htc windows mobile 6 pro.
what i saw was this that as windows mobile standard does not give the features which are possible in the mobile, similarly nokia did not given the feature in 3250 which was easily possible for n3250 hardware to handle.
so friends dont just see that what software features nokia gives in n8 but what features they missed in n8.
if ur mobile have gps and samsung like company dont gives u gps software by default in ur mobile, and ur windows mobile standard edition like gt-c6625 dont let u install latest version of google maps, and if google dont give their best softwares like google earth, etc to windows mobile pro edition then u will have better choices as android, iphone, windows mobile pro then nokia symbian.
see mobile hardware is not made like motherboard which has BIOS. so keep hard focus on software also instead hardware only.
mind these few software capabilities b4 buying the mobile.
does the camera flash sound can be changed or stopped. does destop is highely customizable. can u change the location of every icon on desktop as per ur wish. can u set alarms to play full songs instead of 1 minute song. can remap the key of ur phone. can u install editional languages phonts. can u use camera for recording at minimized mode. can u kill the process in task manager instead of tasks only. can the disable services at startup as ur wish. do u have voice changer software in ur phone. do have auto call recording software in ur phone by default. can u use front camera to record ur speech while u read full screen text on ur phone.
you dont need to remove the battery. you hold the button down to get an automatic reset

The Music Quality Is Awesome over the Headphone.. The one that nokia supplied with it, is awesome.. This is next best thing after apple products.. in terms of sound
I don't understand Nokia!Why such a good camera in smartphone witch has only 256 mb of RAM,640x360 screen and such a little powerfull processor inside?!
[deleted post]20th october, go to Boshundhara City's Priority store..
Nokia just reintroduced pre-booking in United Arab Emirates. N8 seems to generate more orders than even Nokia can handle.
Not surprised, a great phone.
Phoenix, 17 Oct 2010Picked up the Silver White today for 23,000INR. Great phone, no major issues yet... other than... moreExactly buddy. Even I never expected the n8 to compete with the likes of iphone and SGS. I merely wanted a good stable OS with good multitasking capabilities. And I got it! Especially after the N73's lags, I was quite very frustrated. But this phone is really amazing!
Picked up the Silver White today for 23,000INR. Great phone, no major issues yet... other than headset being a non-working dud. That doesn't bother me because I wasn't going to use the in-ear, fixed remote headset anyway, I have the N86 one that's better. Opera Mobile is awesome, no crashes so far. Camera performance is as expected and OS performance is better than expected. Maybe it's just me, but I never expected Symbian^3 to compete with the glitz of Android and iOS, I merely expected it to act like a decent smartphone OS. Yes, it's more like an S60v7. Overall, no regrets.
Got my N8 just today! Simply superb! Worth every penny for me!
If your major needs are awesome music, excellent photos, messaging, great reception, decent interface with good multitasking; then you'll love this phone! Added to that are the USB OTG and dolby sound! And of course, the 12MP snapper has got enough applause already!
I admit that N8 is not about flashy UI or visual treats. But it gets your work done pretty well.
I don't know why people didn't like the messaging inputs. I am quite very happy with it. It's just that I am switching from N73 to N8. So the non-touch to touch transition will take some time.
I hardly use web and social networking via my cell phone. So the issues widely debated can be ignored in my case! I am a fan of Nokia and Symbian's simple, no-nonsense UI. So I love this phone! Thank you Nokia! Symbian^3 is definitely a step in the right direction!
