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...
Bro, Hope you are not clear with NOkia N8 device.. Its not just camera, it has USB, HD recording, and many freaking crazy features as compared to Galaxy S.
Galaxy has Android & Super amoled display, but 5MP camera sucks.. No flash, sucks more...
USB on The GO is a feature where you can attach pen drive, USB hard disk in the mobile.
Now thats done with Female USB stick which is already present in BOX. Now when you connect any pen drive or USB hard disk it will recognize it as MASS STORAGE DEVICE ATTACHED. from where you can copy paste cut move do any thing.
Now when you attach any nokia device with this usb it will also detect uSB device attached. And if you attach any non nokia device it starts charging the other phone...
Hope its cleared now..

[deleted post]Nope. If it were available, you would have known it already (tv commercials, paper ads, you know...). I called the priority dealer in Dhanmondi, they said it'll arrive within this month, but couldn't give an exact date. You should better keep checking the newspapers for ads and related news.

Is there any way by which we can select multiple items at one go?
My sist... moreThis I want to know as well because this problem has given me lots of frustrations with my 5800.
Is this finally resolved on the N8?
kmmbd, 13 Oct 2010Well, can you please explain what are the 'really' usable features of you precious Galaxy? Don... moreVery nice try...but flawed perspective... The processor,display,Ram are integrant parts of a handset..We make our choices in buying a handset according to those aspects! Having the best camera on the market is not enought to regain the smartphone segment while you haven't improved too much other segments! Read the review! Gsmarena admits that n8 is the best cameraphone but overall it can't compete with Galaxy S! For many people the camera will be enough to buy this phone but i repeat..overall it can't compete with the Android high-end phones!
Dear n8 users can u explain me what is usb on the go support??????????Only n8 experienced user plz
Galaxy Sun, 13 Oct 2010I'd give up the looks for having the best features anyday! The battery life is not great that'... moreWell, can you please explain what are the 'really' usable features of you precious Galaxy? Don't mention RAM, processor or screen tech, those are not features that add to the functionality. Re web browsing, I still prefer to browse on my 21 inch pc monitor using firefox. And design is a really important factor when you're buying something that costs around 500 euro. And you Galaxy owners should feel sad and cheated. Even after having the most powerful GPU in the market, you don't have a good, playable, graphics intensive games. And the heck, the 2.2 Froyo update isn't here yet. When it'll be finally available, there will be some bugs for sure and Samsung will never be kind enough to fix those as they'll be concentrating on the next big thing. It's amazing how nokia still supports the N95 (got a firmware upgrade 2 months ago). Anyways, hope you Galaxy owners don't end up like those Omnia HD owners...
@ all N8 users:
Is there any way by which we can select multiple items at one go?
My sister owns a 5800. In there, if we wish to mark some non-consecutive 10-20 odd messages from our inbox, we have to individually go to options>mark. It was really annoying. In a regular S60 phone with keypad, there was the "pencil symbol" key or the # key by pressing which we could mark multiple items. Is there any way we can perform the same without much effort on Symbian^3??
Galaxy Sun, 13 Oct 2010I'd give up the looks for having the best features anyday! The battery life is not great that'... moreyou are contradicting your favorite company ;).
Samsung too have its Bada OS, it doesnt mean that their samsung made android phones are bad ;)
and if you say that n8 has nothing special other than its camera,
same does applies to Galaxy which is a rip off clone or poor mans iPhone :(
Nokia caters to everyone.
If they work on meegoo it doesn't mean that symbian is bad.
Also i had never seen Nokia betraying their users in terms of
support like how Samsung stoped supporting its symbian phones or still not deliverign the android updates ;)
And by seeing the activity in n8 threads, u can guess how popular N8 is.
Even a staunch samsung fan like you are here ;)
Ali Abdulla, 13 Oct 2010most(or alteast many of) s60v5 apps work on the symbian^3..
u dont need screen protector, ... morethanks ali abdulla
thanks a lot for giving ur pricious time
i m going to buy this phone sooner :)
after n95 i will never buy nokia again.symbian is the worst operating system.phone was so slow.maybe nokia should stick s60v5 with 200mhz because is not recource hungry-ridiculous .This is only camera phone.Buy some phone that kick ass like samsung galaxy s,wave,iphone 4,desire...this phone can not compete with them.
Wheez, 13 Oct 2010Right, this is it
GSMArena wrote a good, fair review although it had abit too much focus on... moretqvm wheez c0z all ur effort keep defending the pride of nokia n8 from this nokia hater,samsung,iphone,s.e,htc fanboy.thx again.we will miss u.cya.
btw do u have facebook?
Have any of you bought an N8??
Please do reply , if you face any problems.
Is this phone really worth the price?
Is it the best touch phone? Does it support all the picture graphics supported by Iphone?
Is the camera Quality Awesome, is it better than any Camera phone on the market?
Is it user-friendly? Can any person of any age group use this phone?
I want to really buy this phone. But I am still thinking, as whenever Nokia releases a phone, it is full of bugs and the Firmware is only stabilised later on.
Also does this phone support CDMA Sim cards? or is it again for only a GSM SIM?

This isn't propaganda, I' just answering a question so relax, guys ;)

The battery life is not great that's true, but powering a superb display and a lightning fast net does come with a price! I preffer shorter battery life then an inferior display and proccesor! As for the update Galaxy has now 2.1 but it's still better then n8 in most aspects! In a short time the update will come and then the 512 RAM will be available! If Symbian is so good why Nokia ar working on Meego n9? The obvious answer is they know that they need a new platform if they want to take back the smartphone segment away from Samsung,Htc and Motorola! Since they have nothing better to put on the table they launch a phone which has nothing special except it's camera in the hope of gaining time! But looking how fast Android is developing when n9 will be launched it will have to compete againg Android 3.0 phones and i don't see them winning!
