Anonymous, 18 Oct 2010IS the loudspeaker louder than iphone4?Not sure bout that, but according to gsmarena, the n8 sound quality is way better than the iphone4
Insane, 18 Oct 2010Its not the same thing!! Video calls started years ago with the front facing camera,but now i... moreGet a nokia 1100!lol...jokes aside point taken....every phone has its pitfalls...which one you settle for?
i had purchased n8 one week ago now i want to sell it in 15000. any one want to buy it call me on my number.09455800620. i haven't liked it.my expectation was more with this phone now i am planning to buy apple i phone
Its not the same thing!!
Video calls started years ago with the front facing camera,but now its apple's FaceTime but still they are not the same thing!!! Remember those cheap phones which didn't have card slots or bluetooth,we used data cables just to put in some ringtones or wallpapers? And now it's iPhone's dependency on iTunes and cables without bluetooth,but still they are not the same things!!! Steve Jobs gonna start a new business policy...TUTORIALS...he's giving tutorials on *How to hold a phone? *How to get a grip and never drop an iPhone 4. *How to jailbreak it and release it's full potential of bluetooth transfer and free apps from the store.
Nokia N8 moto: Its not technology its what you use. Yes,we use it first as a phone and then for its camera. We keep looking at our phones for about 12 hours a day,so we need a good screen a good UI and a good OS(which is obsolete in N8). Camera is secondary. And if you are giving us USB OTG then there should be a good antivirus pre installed,coz more or less all our pendrives contain virus. and if we were so keen on connecting our bluetooth mouse and keyboard and connection it via HDMI with our HD tv, I guess we would rather buy a netbook instead.Coz that would serve both the purpose and functionality.
Samsung Galaxy S : Good to touch,nice to hold. Once its broken,consider it sold. Thats the kind of support Samsung gives its customers,samsung dropped symbian,what about the Omnia HD owners?? I can still see SGS owners struggling to get their 2.2 Froyo update. And ofcourse its battery, you can do anything with this phone but just don't unplug your charger. Or you may better have a spare battery in your pocket.
Where has this world come to??

Anonymous, 14 Oct 2010if u couldn't find a potrait qwerty keyboard Its ur fault... Its available i've used it myself... moreThere is a Portrait Keyboard but there is no PORTRAIT QWERTY KEYBOARD!!! Nokia 5800 has a portrait qwerty keyboard but NOT IN SYMBIAN 3. What is wrong with Nokia. I was so disappointed with this. It's a determining factor for me getting N8. Tried it 3 times in nokia outlets and the nokia employee says no. Even GSM Arena says it's a disappointment in the texting department. I was really looking forward to getting this phone until I've found out there's no portrait qwerty keyboard. A phone is for calling and sms. No portrait qwerty keyboard means it's a step backward. It's things like that makes users runaway unless they're correcting it with their new firmware. Mind you, I'm still a Nokia N82 user who's looking to upgrade. If no portrait qwerty keyboard, I might as well stick to N82 for awhile after all it's a phenomenon according to some of you.
