LAMBO, 11 Oct 2010Hi Wheez . How are you ? . I think you are a super man . how do you do that you are here 24 h... moreIf I may reply to this.
I live in UAE and earlier today I was asked by "Wheez" about where is my N8 made. I checked mine and it says Finland, and I checked with a friend who also has the N8 from another major retailer and it was from China. So I can tell that, at least for UAE, you have both units, the ones made in Finland and China.
For the speaker quality, I have the 5800 too, the sound quality is almost identical, but the N8 speakers are slightly able to manage the higher volumes without distortion. There is a little distortion in the 5800 when you raise the volume high in a song that has deep bases, this is a bit better in the N8.
n8 is the most balanced phone to iphoners and droids... Stop whining and no arguments...
Friends & everybody else posting here... Can you please be subjective in your comments, no one is right or wrong about what he/shee feels for a certain model, in order for this to be a useful place to exchange knowledge and experience, please point out things that the rest can understand, no one here can read minds (at least not myself).
Comments like "this is not a good phone", "it doesn't have 1Ghz / 512 RAM" are meaningless unless you tell us your personal experience what does the lack of these items or any other items affect the performance of the device.
Thank you for participating subjectively without wasting time;
Regards and respect to everyone.
Guys please explain me the difference between flash lite 4 and flash 10.
Whats the difference between performance?
Please don't give one liners as i surfed the net...
A detail from great experts over here would be highly appreciated
Wheez, 10 Oct 2010Finland, cos it's bought from Finland! :D Finnish made ones go to Europe, Africa and middle... moreHi Wheez . How are you ? . I think you are a super man . how do you do that you are here 24 hour 7 days in the week . Keep doing that go ahead .I had 2 questions - 1st- are you sure that middle east get there N8'S from finland ? . 2nd- the loudness of the loudspeaker of N8 how it do compareing to nokia 5800 & 5320 is it loud enough or not ? . (sorry for my english).
[deleted post]Thank you for the technical fact sheet.
May I ask you to put these specifications into a real life meaningful words? What does the information you posted translate into? What does it do?
Appreciate if you could inlighten us on this fact.
If, in my understanding, we use the same concept on computers for example, there are 2Ghz processors up to 3.6Ghz processors, dual to quad, with dedicated graphics cards ranging from 256MB to 4GB. According to your concept, the 2Ghz machine is bad, but this is not a subjective comment as it has to be 2Ghz is bad in rendering architectural animations files (for example).
3 things making N8 'ALMOST' superior -
It's 'Awfully Awesome' camera esp for Xenon flash
It's HDMI port
& It's USB on the go support
I used 'ALMOST' at first because -
I hoped something new instead of old symbian
Also I wished if it had a bit larger screen like 4 inches of E7 or 4.3 of recent HTC sets
And a 1Ghz processor would have made it something from heaven ...
Yet I love this set a lot ... And I'm gonna have 1 definitely... Because whatever anybody say we all know that no set is 100% ... For example HTC Desire HD is an amazing set but it has 8 MP camera with dual-Led flash and internal storage is 1.5 GB .. Now compare this with N8 and U'll see why i said no set is 100%...You just gotta get the one which your mind cherished for,which is your dream set .. And for me it's N8, my mind tells me so... :)
You can preorder n8 in singapore for only euro 400;; with free nokia speakers and two warranty!
Nokia n8 must have games
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2010not quite goodAnd why's that?
Before you say worse CPU and less RAM blahblah, take a look over here:
Doesn't really seem to bother the N8, and that's cos it has more powerful GPU than the rest while having weaker CPU.
If you have any real reasons to think this isnt a good phone, I'm all ears, though.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2010680mhz cpu still running on symbian and a 1200 mAh battery? nokia? when are you going to learn?You're the one that needs to learn. Just go look at benchmarks, N8 doesnt shame the tiniest bit against 1ghz phones. It's cos it has more powerful GPU than the rest. That's why they could "afford" putting in only a 680Mhz CPU (which is underclocked down from 770mhz or so).
Funny enough, while having lesser battery and "omg crappy specs" compared to other phones, it still is equal with them in benchmarks while having just about amongst the best or the best battery life currently on the market.
Stop hugging the specs, it seems to get you nowhere.

jhun, 11 Oct 2010not lovin' its processor. only 680mhz clockspeed? is it still acceptable today? last time i he... moreGet back to us when Snapdragon and Apples A4 has as good GPU than the N8.
Just look at the benchmarks, N8 is very even with those 1ghz phones cos of it's GPU.
hy to all,this phone can play manele? this is very important for me,in my village everyone like this sound format!
W. Al Hakeem, 11 Oct 2010May I ask what is the price of it in Egypt? Just for comparison with UAE pricesI asked today the agent they told me it will be between 3500 : 3800 EGP.
not lovin' its processor. only 680mhz clockspeed? is it still acceptable today? last time i heard, there are already phones having 1ghz of processing power? anyone heard of snapdragon? how about apple a4?
