here are my views guys:
camera & video recording...AWESOME.no need to describe anything here
Loudspeaker.....too shrill..no bass beat
ear in headphones....not so good.iphone wins here
home screen interface..... doesnt go with the finger.maybe to avoid accidental touch of widgets.
messaging....aside from auto correct,its awesome
net experience.... its quite good but screen page doesnt move as quickly or as fluid as iphone's.hence i vote for iphone here too.
gallery.... once the pics and videos load,its smooth as hell..but the pinch and zoom is not on par with iphone.
general UI....its quite fast and as someone pointed out,iphones screen transitions makes us believe that iphone is faster.
build quality.... excellent.but i am a little hesitant as nokia has a history of paint peeling off from keypads and buttons..
overall,if you guys need a high quality camera and video recording phone with better battery life then n8 is the one...however for music,for applications and for the best touch experience i vote for iphone.and since i already have a 3gs and am getting the n8 in 10 days ,am happy :D
vishal chowdary, 08 Oct 2010nokia n8 sucks.....being leader in market nokia should have done better. camera clarity is wo... moreBattery life is amongst the best in market and the camera in undoubtedly the best too amongst cameraphones too. You have a sucky photographer if he cant take clear photos with the N8.

nokia n8 sucks.....being leader in market nokia should have done better.
camera clarity is worst n and even battery sucks
read , i got this from engadget and lets see what iphone and SGS would say-
Surprise, surprise. The iFixit team have cornered themselves a dark grey Nokia N8 and have proceeded to do the one thing that comes naturally to them: disassembled it. It's mostly good news all around with this teardown, which found the BL-4D battery cell was only two Torx screws away from being user-replaceable, while the overall N8 construction was PRAISED as being the "BEEFIEST" of ANY PHONE THIS YEAR. plenty of bodacious highlights within, including the MASSIVE Xenon flash and the pair of camera modules -- which are regrettably not removable from the main board. The touchscreen controller in the N8 is the same as has previously been used on the Kin Two and BlackBerry Torch. Perhaps that's not the best pedigree in the world, but the (complete in one case, and relative in the other) lack of success of those phones WAS NEVER really about the screen's responsiveness.

Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010Just tried out the nokia N8 at the Nokia outlet in Hong Kong. To be honest, the UI is not as ... moreNice too see some honest first impressions. I've only read a mindless dribble and rants of folks who seem to be either completely against this phone or love this phone. This phone is more appeal and practicality then most phones itís compared to (iPhone and Galaxy) why would you want a 1 GHz processor when the one provided does the job? The extra processing power would drain battery... itís a mobile device that's suppose to last you the entire day, not a fully functional desktop plugged in. As far as the thousands of apps go, The most apps Iíve seen on an iPhone is like 6 screens worth, you can fit about 24 apps on a screen if your going to boast about 250,000 apps you should have a hundreds of home screens full of them... I'd like to see the A4 1 GHz processor handle that. So don't come in here throwing stupid arguments that really don't help your case.
Once again, thanks mate for a good first impression.

Nokia N8 is best Hardware phone, but not best software phone. Symbian 3 still few step behind in compare to other OS. But i belive nokia will back in action with in 2 year with the help from MeeGo and Symbian 4.
I Think the phone is almost perfect in every way and perfoormance is excellent however there are only two concerns first the phone is expensive in comparison to
other phones with similar specifications and the processor speed is some where around 680mhz where as you can get other phones with a lower cost at 1ghz.
Just tried out the nokia N8 at the Nokia outlet in Hong Kong. To be honest, the UI is not as smooth as I have expected it to be. The web browser, to be honest, SUCKS TO THE MAX! A portrait qwerty with auto correct would also be much appreciated. The current one is just to tiring and destroy the whole pleasure of using the phone. However, the camera is really really GOOD! Now I understand why it is better than some compact cam. Photo gallery is a bit slow when loading but after it has loaded, everything will become smooth.
Music cover flow is extreme. Trust me, it is smoother and better to use than the iP4's. The screen....one word. GORGEOUS!! You have to see it to believe it. All those review videos don't do it any justice. It is simply stunning. Color contrast puts the iPhone 4 retina display to shame. Much to my astonishment, the N8 is really really light. You literally can't feel the weight and it is really thin. Thinner than what I have expected.
Moving on is the homescreen swiping. I cannot lie here. It does not deliver. They should integrate it so that it can move along with our finger. The current one is just too dead. And the pinch-to-zoom feature should really be revised. It is not fluid enough. One thing to note about the screen though is it is really responsive. It exceeded my expectation and the responsiveness of the screen really blew me away. I daresay it is on par, if not better, than the iPhones or HTC Desire.
Well, that is all for now. Will do a little video review after I have purchased my unit. At the moment still considering whether to get it or not.
P.S. The build quality is really something. No wonder a lot of sites give it a 5/5 for build quality.
Xtc, 08 Oct 2010How if nokia with android would you buy one?Don't have a problem with that. I also want to try something new. But i think nokia and android can't be put on one sentence(i just did XD) so i think it's quite impossible to see them on a single device. Plus, i think it's wierd to see a nokia phone with android UI. They don't fit imo. So i better off with samsung or htc if i decided to go android.
The totality of n8 as a phone wins me the most. So i reserved my curiosity on other OS to my next purchase. I'm still not closing my doors on wave though, he's there in case of emergency, i digress ;)
Is the flash lite 4 on n8 capable enough to play flash online streaming videos at sites like www.megavideo.com
Does nokia internet radio works on n8?
Any good weather forcast app for the pilot?
Can someone give me a list of top iphone games developers? I want to go to their forum site to ask for symbian 3 qt version.
