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!
