this phone is cheap

N8 trumps it in build quality and materials alone so hard that it's justified for it to be more expensive. And considering it's Nokia and not Apple, if u dont wanna pay for the quality and materials, wait for C6-01 or C7, get the same phone with less esthetics.
N8s materials and build quality are on of the biggest reasons I got it. It just looks and feels SO good.
I'm not sure if you even meant this, but the N8 is made in Salo, Finland and Beijing, China. Finnish mades go to Europe, middle-east and africa. China mades go to asia and USA.

Wheez, 08 Oct 2010If i knew you rl id make a bet with you Nokia wont use android and Nokia will not die away ... moreBrand loyalty is fine, but the truth is that korean and chinese companies are ahead go this game. Nokia may now make all its phones in china, but far from being just manufacturers they are developers. The west will make the operating systems like microsoft but the phone manufacture and design elsewhere. Nokia was always my favourite with build quality and ease of use, but in terms of value for money now, forget it! Lets see I can have a Nokia 5230 with a slow processor touch resistive screen screen and symbian , or a desire clone with fantastic display an o led one that's capacitive too, which has a great gpu and runs asphalt with no lag hardly, the hd version almost as good as my galaxy s! All for the price of a 5230 which I own too, use that mainly for navigation as that's the only good Nokia application, although google is fantastic, like the more detailed voice guidance, but that's it! This phone should be a lot cheaper but here costs as much as a galaxy s, not worth it!
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010hahaha. very true. symbian guys will know the nokia support quality within a few months. 5800 ... moreHahahah....so u think fones tat dnt get updates r perfect....get a life dude....the most perfect fone also needs update to make it work better....

Nokias flagships were quite meh and the os wasnt good combined with insufficient hw.
The N8 is from a whole other planet software, hardware and looks wise. Im not expecting to see ppl sell their androids if they even remotely like it, cos it is a good OS if u dont mind the shortcomings.
However, Nokia is totally back in the game again with the N8
what the hell???? cant they put a 1 GB processor to enhance such features? i dont think that the CPU is good enough to hold a phonesuch like that one considering the price

Peoples here started to buy the Android phones. But i think N8 will surely make them to come back to Nokia. All the nokia haters are going to lose soon.. Cheers..
Whatever the haters say
i will feel proud of being nokia n8 user, i can show off my
12 mp camera that is not only megapixel
show them i can use it as netbook with bluetooth mouse and keyboard
i can use my hdtv as big monitor to watch movie, surf net
i dont need any pouch to cover my beautiful n8 design
iwant to buy 32g memory card to boost my phone memory to 48g
iwill never get lost with that free lifetime offline ovi maps navigation
i can play games likeangry birds smoothly thanks to its broadcom gpu chip
i can buy two n8 because it is so well priced
What is the expected price of N8? I am planning to own one but would not like shell out more than 20k

Nokia wont use android and Nokia will not die away anywhere.
Just look at the daily interest and hits. Compare it to any other current smartphone. And you say Nokia is dying?

They have not kept ahead of the competition and the likes of htc etc have put the final nail in the coffin. I feel like with buying a laptop you will soon find the operating system will be the same on every phone, most likely android. And each phone manufacturer will as they are now add different features. You will not always bother who makes the device, but for quality you may go for a branded device, but that's the way the market will go. It will make it easy for applications and games to be made. Bada may too not be a dead duck, but do admire samsung for taking a risk. Nokia I love but sorry who cares now who makes the phone Nokia applications are not enough . Nokia needs to make android or there through as a smartphone company period!
Please answer a few questions 4 me
1-do u have nokia messaging(push email) activated?if yes how many accounts?
2-have u tested the battery life with and w/o data activated?
3-does it have smart dialling?if yes does it search also company/nickname/job etc?
prince78, 08 Oct 2010Thanks a lot Wheez.. U have been a great helping hand to me with all ur comments and posts. i'... moreThank you for your kind words. My crusade will go on a little further till large crowds such as india will get the device. As ive been amongst the first retail owners of the N8, I saw the need for defending its pride against the uncalled for hate its getting from fans of other brands, who are insecure due to N8s popularity.
Soon the phones success will be everywhere and the happy owners will steamroll the negative nokia haters, then my job is done
Before thr N8 i never paid attention to newest phones or read/wrote on forums like these. Im not sure if ill manage to just forget all this, cos ive now spent hundreds of hours reading and writing here. Its been extremely time consuming (time which i dont have cos of university), but i dont regret it :D
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010Even if the display was 50*50 nokia fans will be happy. The same applies to iphone or android... moreheh, i would never buy an n8 or any phone with 50x50 display at this price bracket. Is that how bad you see a nokia fan is?

U have been a great helping hand to me with all ur comments and posts. i've been following all ur comments on N8 since last 7 days.. I'm a proud owner of a nokia 5800 and a nokia E72. E72 is a nice device balanced overall. The only thing i disliked about nokia 5800 was its laggy OS and inconsistency of tapping method..
With E72 i'm fully satisfied function wise but wanted a responsive touchscreen phone with a larger display.. For that i was considering samsung wave or galaxy S. But again i wanted the functionality Symbian OS.. Now after reading all ur comments and early reviews from various sites i've made up my mind that i will go for Nokia N8.. Thanks dude.. Please do continue ur good work.... Cheers..
