I'm in USA...I've had the N8 for a few days and tonight found out the headphones do not work....they sound like crap! It's not the music either, the videos pre-installed sound the same way. The buttons do not work on the phone either.
Tried to use ovi suite and the n8 kept locking up.
My stomach hurts....can't believe I paid 600 USD for this. I'm returning it for a full refund.
Sorry guys...not sure I can get an exchange. My N8 was made in China. I'm not dogging China, just stating a fact.
[deleted post]Hey I had that app on my 5800 ! For which I paid 3 times less to what Iphone costs
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2010one g8 thing: 8millions of iph4 sold and countingiphone4 is crap compared to even the old Nokia 6600, not to mention N95 8GB which bwnz it, and now N8 completely destroyed it... xD

[deleted post]it has radio!!!
mab u must search on the space to find a better mobile phone
Rams, 16 Oct 2010Og GSMArena! Has Nokia stopped paying you? You boasted N95 8GB was the best in the market evad... moreand yes Symbian^4 is on the way soon. N9 will soon release soon to as a phone with MeeGo OS on it.
I think that the WM7 Phone from Microsoft is just another Android kind of thing. It will be marketed like the iPhone and it will be priced expensive the same as iPhone aswell. But it will just be badged as a Microsoft.
Nokia is still the best.
Rams, 16 Oct 2010Og GSMArena! Has Nokia stopped paying you? You boasted N95 8GB was the best in the market evad... moreYou haven't mentioned that has Nokia has Maemo 5, That's in use in the N900.
Nokia also has development of the MeeGo OS.
Ovi Services are now excellent.
Has Apple, Samsung, Motorola got a phone as good as the N900? No they haven't
rahulNEWN8, 16 Oct 2010plzz...tell me the way to hard reset the phone to factory settings..... symbian3 sucks!!!!!... moreYou are not a N8 user. Why you are posting like this what you wanted to say to world. If you want a vireos grade you can get it from OVI store. I think you have haver use OVI store. If you don't like N8 why don't go for a any other phone. Are you jellies about N8 populerity.

Yes, people get paid to troll. Why would someone tell you not to buy this phone? Why? Because they love you so much and don't want you to make a mistake by buying a multimedia powerhouse? Or because you will not be able to buy 'insert brand/model here' for awhile after you spend the money on the N8 and that my hit market shares big time. A phone purchase is a 1-2 year commitment. And for crying out loud this phone has been talked to death already, it has its faults and yet someone(corporation) is still scared/intimidated by its popularity. So, trolls are sent to antagonize it by saying things like 'the camera is really bad' while every credible source had it reviewed and the camera is clearly not bad, its actually the best in the market ATM. They say the CPU is old, that it has low RAM bla bla bla I'm reading this for months now and guess what: WE KNOW ALL OF IT! This phone is my next purchase and nothing anybody says will ever change that. Also, being this popular you know the firmwares will keep coming and Nokia will replace the bad browser, improve battery life, introduce swype and even overclock the CPU if needed. My N82 got its v35 firmware Dec 2009, thats three years after release! But hey, I'm not trying to say this phone is the best...its not...It's just the best for me. (ps- to fight off trolls I'll just repost this now and then cuz it might get deleted ^_^)
im excited for pre-ordered nokia n8, it will be available on october 23,2010 in the philippines...
i love nokia phones, this is what im waiting for to have a complete package,,,,
[deleted post]go for SEx10 although I think galaxy s is better choice cuz x10 lacks multitouch. If ur budget is high and don't like iph4 which is my fav, go for galaxy S. X10 is second and avoid nokia if u can. Early users of N8 already has freezing problems!! typical symbian
I have no idea what the big deal is about Windows OS, they have failed time after time and I don't see anything impressive about it. I also don't see the big deal about iPhone 4, the only thing that have on the N8 is the app store. OVI store sucks!
Og GSMArena! Has Nokia stopped paying you? You boasted N95 8GB was the best in the market evading the importance of keypad. In fact, you praised its keypad was comfortable for texting!! You have come a long way since then. Just like how Microsoft failed to recognise the internet opportunities, Nokia refused to move away from that rubbish keypad. That resulted ina crappy OS. What Nokia needs to do is to come out with a whole new OS just like Microsoft has come out with WM7. Nokia can't try Android simply because it owns Symbian. A great recipe for Nokia's doom. SE and Mororola too just moved ahead of Nokia in smartphone market. Samsaung has already has done that long ago.
