Now it can have Video recording at 30fps with continuous autofocus.....@w€$um€....
I guess n8 is a great phone, people say that os is not at par with the others like android, and i do agree, but if they get on any modify everything in the os, users wouldn't be able to use the past applications which were available on previous symbians and would cost them building a whole new app world...
Thats why they started with this, the developers for n8 are utilising their full potential to build new app for the touch screens.. Till then just be with the old and great app world...
[deleted post]I am sure you are a nokia hater from korea;).
All your queries about N8 is replied,
but none of the queries to you about your samsung and its galaxy is not replied by you.
And another thing please stop blabbering about N8 and your galaxy comparison.
If i am not bothered about galaxy i never go to galaxy forum.
But if you are not bothered about N8 then what else you are doing it in N8 forum ??
It gives a hint that how much you give importance to N8.
You are just reminding me of how sasmung was caught in India for its online LED TV marketing campaign.
( They paid guys to post about their LED TVs in popular forums , and they ask a query and reply themselves )..

I have a queation about the review
is nokia n8 loudspeaker better than x6?
Better quality via earphone than x6?
What is d class loudspeaker in n8?
Thanks for the review GSM arena team. I had my eyes set on this phone, I guess I have changed my mind now. I have been using the Nokia 5800 for the past 2 years and have suffered enough. I understand that the camera is undoubtedly the best in N8, but his time I understand the importance of the other features.
Thanks again GSM Arena Team!
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,,

D_x6, 13 Oct 2010I think galaxy is a gud phone but cant compete wid n8.i know there are several advantages n di... moreNo,Nokia have lost the smartphone segment starting with the n96 period. 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
