Why people mention about galaxy here
perasonally, i hate its samsung made phones, thrie buildquality, their after sale service, their ugly design,
samsung is only good in other industry not in mobile phones
what i really care about is the phone made by nokia, it is only apple that can put threat to nokia, nokia is not sleeping, they are working on symbian 4 and meego
in my opnion, n8 is a phone nokia want to keep their customers from jumping ship,and later on fight back heavily with n9 and first symbian 4 phone early next year, what i wish to see from nokia is
can we have touch and type for s60v3?
"Thanks for the review, GSMArena. I've made a decision based on the reviews so far, and finally including this one, that I am not buying the N8.
Symbian has a long long way to go, and the inability to play HD videos more than 2GB is just one of the bigger stumblings that I thought they wouldn't have a problem with. (The interface issues obviously number 1 reason.) The weaker flash seems to hurt it as well so I might just stick to my N82 for camera purposes while I use an Android for everything else.
Unfortunately Nokia is showing no signs of accelerating their OS development or even moving into Meego anytime soon. Even if they come out with a Meego in a year, imagine what iOS and Android looks like then? Imagine their App stores as well. Sadly, time to move on for me."
"Meego is Nokia's only saving grace for touchscreen devices. They should leave Symbian to non-touch. Sad to say, but only the camera was N8's selling point and not enough reason to lure me getting this phone. Next...."
2 user comments left here....this is what nokia needs to read!!!!
18mths ago this phone would have killed it, everyone wanted to have the best camera phone possible.. camera quality on 5mp shooters and higher for the majority is more than acceptable as technology improves
people want nice UI's, high res large touchscreens, quick cpu's, apps and the ability to customize which nokia refuses to budge on. the whole camera race has come and gone... maybe nokia will learn with this one..
kmmbd, 13 Oct 2010That's funny. I've seen all the N8 promo videos, they all revolve around the camera, USB OTG, ... moreWhen you postpone the launch date many times then people expect you are making the final adjustments to a amazing device! And in the end... A phone with a sensational camera but only some improvements in other aspects and a couple of extras like USB-OTG. That's not enought for a phone that was expected that long and can't compete on equal terms with Android and IoS. Nokia hopes remain with Meego....
HX Customer Roms Are Really keen in taken up the fight against Andriod Phones..Keep Up The Good Work HX............ I have i8910,,,,,,Waiting for latest October Rom 2010 for I8910,,

They still managed to hold one to first place thanks to a very good marketing strategy regarding the lower to middle end phones where they lead the table. Since there are many poor countryes especially in Africa and some parts of Asia and Europe where many people can't afford a Galaxy,Desire or N8 but they do afford a 3720 or 6303. Smartphone selles acound for only a procentage of total selles numbers. The legendary 1100 is the best solled phone until today. If they will will continue to dominate this niche of market Nokia will retain the top spot even if they don't regain the smartphone segment. Even if the N8 is inferior in most aspects to Galaxy,Desire, despite that Nokia will still earn the best profits.
Good bye Symbian, you are left behind. Wish to buy Android or Iphone. But Iphone is too expensive. Yep android is my choice.Phone OS for future.
Galaxy Sun, 13 Oct 2010It's another ball game with n9...When it's out it will have to compete with Android 3.0 phones... moreI think galaxy is a gud phone but cant compete wid n8.i know there are several advantages n disadvantages over one another but now its a time for some change from java to s60 to android to symbian^3.but in popular growing mobile industry in countries like china and india there is a blind faith in nokia before purchasing any phones our parents say "only nokia and nothing else".i know nokia is new in smartphone market but it will soon make his reputation like it made with n series and e series.we never remember any phone model no. Except nokia so dats the reason why nokia is mobile leader and other mobile companies are trying to reach to that position and even nokia wid smart phones.so lets see
nokia moto: connecting people..
apple : entertaining people
google: follow Moore's law.... (poor battery manufacturers ha ha ha)
Galaxy Sun, 13 Oct 2010It's another ball game with n9...When it's out it will have to compete with Android 3.0 phones... moreThat's funny. I've seen all the N8 promo videos, they all revolve around the camera, USB OTG, HDMI port and Bluetooth keyboard and mouse compatibility. I haven't seen them bragging about the appstore, neither did they say it's the fastest phone on the planet. I guess some people do expect a lot from these phones.
Galaxy Sun, 13 Oct 2010It's another ball game with n9...When it's out it will have to compete with Android 3.0 phones... more@Galaxy sun
I am sure you still didnt go through the N8 specs.
Probably i dont think anything special in Galaxy other than its SAMOLED ( i really doubt is it better than Retina
or how it is betetr than AMOLED ).
Please dont brag about 1GHz processor which is discussed here N number of times.
Only thing in Galaxys favour is its Poor mans iPhone clone.
The best thing of n8 is not camera, it is the price that kill its peers.
The disavanages gsmarena list are not the real disavantages, all of them are just softwares that very likely to be fixed by firmware update including new ovimaps with pinch to zoom, ovi browser, swype and nokia interne radio,
video recording is overrated, itake still photo most of the time, battrey life is not bad,

The Gsmarena team expected something truly amazing as the world given the so much advertisment by Nokia and the fact that the launch was postponed a couple of times..And they got only the best camera in the business...I say only because given all the excitement around n8 it was expected that this handset will compete in all aspects with Android high-end phones...But,it can't....
kmmbd, 13 Oct 2010Nope. If it were available, you would have known it already (tv commercials, paper ads, you kn... moreI hav checked Galaxy S,liked it a lot. But i m still waiting for the N8. Once its in, I'll hav a look and then decide. As from the reviews the N8 seems gud but camera is the least thing I use in a phone,so I am really confused. About that HDMI thing,I don't hav a HD tv. I love the polished OS of SGS. I have used N70,N79,N82,5230,5800,so I think I need a change now. The UI of N8 looks preety similar to its predesessors.
THANKS guys for your wonderful comments. Please can somebody describe how loud the N8 sterio speakers are when playing music. Is it as loud as 5800 and N95-1?
Galaxy Sun, 13 Oct 2010Very nice try...but flawed perspective... The processor,display,Ram are integrant parts of a h... moreThe thing is, GSMArena guys wanted something as phenomenal as the N95. Something that trumps the competition in every possible way. Nokia did so on some parts, other parts were lacking. GSMArena stated that too in the conclusion - if you find N8 lacking in one side, it is the absolute best in another side. I guess they mostly found Symbian 3 lacking other than the handset itself. I too would have loved a more polished O.S., but given that feature set and such a price I'll be forgiving it's shortcomings. The same doesn't apply for you top-of-the-line android phones. They cost a lot, and can't even store apps in the memory case (yet). HTC is much better than Samsung in this regard. At least they gave the Desire Froyo treatment. And be realistic, it costs lot less than Galaxy. At least in Bangladesh, Galaxy costs around 480 euro, whereas N8 should be available at 400 euro most. Compare your Galaxy with the N9 when that's out...
