Overall it's smooth and fast, not much waiting to be done.
I'm very happy with my purchase and wouldn't trade if for any other smartphone out there, even if you gave me 3 of em (unless I was allowed to sell em and buy 3 more N8s :D)
Wheez, 09 Oct 2010Yeah, I'm aware, but the loading time comparison was pretty fair and it's not surprising.
I... moreI have noticed Afans and Afans come here to use every chance to bash N8 for selling IOS and Android to people of which most actually are only interested in N8.
If I have time, I will come here now and then. Do not allow crap talks to control this N8 forum.

Ipod wasn't first mp3 player too. Whenever apple starts new product line, everyone produces apple killer. No one including sony successfully killed ipod, now it is smartphone turn
[deleted post]No matter Ngage was a failure, it showed the strong evidence that Nokia is the absolute daddy, in terms of gaming for smart phone, say nothing of telecommunication wise technology!
For those who already got the N8, Congrats.
and for those who r waiting, just wait and will be in hands soooon..;).
Those who own N8, can they inform us about the smoothness of Symbian^3? The bugs-r they happen to be in ^3 ? the battery?

1. N8 was not release firmware.

I'm just waiting that India and other big markets get this phone, when there's enough people who actually have the phone, I don't have to come here anymore.
While I'd love to discuss and help people, it's really wearing me down to battle these Samsung/HTC/iPhone fans that just have some need to spend their whole day bashing another phone. It feels more like a job to come here and have to fight em cos they derail the whole discussion.
It's really sad, but sadly it's the nature of GSMArena and the downside of anonymity

1. N8 was not release firmware.
2. Iphone 4 doesn't have real multitasking for heavy programs ie games which are always freezing in background unlike Symbian 3 that background tasks always run and use resources such as ram, cpu and gpu. Gaming is usually very heavy process and this is the way how Apple artificially made so-called multitasking that actually it is FAKE.
[deleted post]iam currently using N97 after using N97mini... i already pre booked n8 and waiting for......
u think ur a son of bill gates???:D:D
[deleted post]if u really need games then better get a PSP kid....... tell ur daddy to get u 1 PSP soon :D

And I don't mind as long as the game works fine. Then again, I don't even play games, I'm long past the age where I'd feel like playing games like those on the move.
You seem to think that unless you're best in something, you are crap in it. N8 is like a swiss army knife. Does alot of things very nicely, but doesnt really master at anything (but camera). That's why I got the phone. I don't need the best web experience that iPhone (short from flash) would probably offer me. I rather have still a very good web experience with flash, while also having very nice handy tools such as free bluetooth, USB OTG, overall freedom of the OS, FM transmitter, etc.

Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010nokia knows it cannot compete with iphone or even samsung galaxy s that's why the n8 is priced... morestop your daydreaming. N8 will be the best phone for mass market, buyers will tell this truth.
how n8 fair against other current high end phones
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010little secret about n8 is that it uses same CPU and GPU as in n97. processor was unclocked in ... moreu never used n97,do u? u r one hell of a liar..n97 dont hv gpu..if u want to comment atleast learn the specification n comment here
hi rightnow i am using blackberry curve but nokia n8 is best compare to my phone because of camera i think this is nice phone i am really old customer of nokia my first nokia mobile is 3310 which i purchase about 2002 and second mobile is nokia 3200 which i was purchase 2004 feb that time this mobile phone prise is 12699 and u know right now it is still working so i have great phone from great company thank u
Wheez, 09 Oct 2010Personally I like Symbian^3 better than N900s Maemo.I have nothing against Symbian 3. FYI, I am a symbian veteran (you know, hacking, fiddling stuff)! For us the fiddlers, N9 is a better choice IMHO. But I really like the N8 for its design and camera. I'm thus waiting for nokia to announce the N9. If it's that advanced, I might skip N8. But if the camera is just average like the N900, there is always room for a second thought!
whoever complains about cost,
n8: 429pounds in uk not sure in dollar
iph4 also available unlock outside US like 499pounds in uk
70pounds different is not so bad
Hi friends i am disopted by N8
i m 2 much awaited for this Mobile so booked it. Today the nokia priorty delr called me to first look the live demo of it,
presently i am using Samsung Wave 8500 and i compaired the two models.
1) Touch sencitvty of n8 is still like the other nokia mobile.
2) i found a pre loaded video of the song "Aaj Ke raat" i copied it to my smasung wave and ply on both ... Samsung Wave a way ahead of nokia.
3) Now abouut the sound i will give 4 out of 10 to Nokia N8 and 9 out of 10 to Samsuung Wave. Its sound from the main speaker is too low.
4) Now about the Camera ... Still the disoptment i put the both cell in auto mode and take a close up of my hand . the pictures from nokia is very dull then make a video of the night trafic but i dont understand why nokia takes too much time to responce of changing light.
The other + pts of nokia is well known to every one
