Symbian?? Android?? It's depend on the peoples need. Some will feel symbian is good some will feel android is more powerful. But why?? Because for us as nokia users we had use to it for the symbian, so symbian for us is more user friendly and better than others. So no point to argue this or that better. Which one is more suite to our usage and expectation we just go for it, might not you go buy something but you dunno to use it then put it aside so it's just a waste!!
Gary, 08 Oct 2010For all those Nokia lovers... Nokia is not a good brand to say everything in a nutshell. And ... morefor me its not just about the os with the nokia n8 yes i am a bit of a Symbian fan but thats more to do with thats is the os that i am used to but thats not forget Symbian is still the top os in the world for smart phones at the moment, i can more than put up with Symbian being a split second slower and not so eye candy maybe compared to others but n8 is still for me because of its great features like camera,hdmi output,on the go usb supports etc etc, for me the n8 can do eveything any other phone can do but there are lots the n8 can do that others can't
For all those Nokia lovers...
Nokia is not a good brand to say everything in a nutshell. And it has been voted and proved globally that the Symbian OS is the worst OS. Get out of the
confined world and step into the reality people! Google is 100 times bigger and better than Nokia and their OS is way more advanced than Symbian. Let
me tell you how. Some people say that Symbian is matured and its reliability its undoubtfully good, its folder management, its task switching are all good.
They may be good a couple of years earlier until a much more advanced Android OS started rolling out. Android is fast, has more eye candy, is gaining
more market everyday, is open source, has its app growing like anything. Some people say that Symbian doesn't need more hardware resources. Now,
HTC Wildfire has a 528 MHz processor and runs Android 2.1 very smoothly and we all know the performance of Nokia N97 which had a smaller Symbian
number and higher processor. The Samsung i5800 Galaxy 3 has a 667 MHz processor and sails the Android 2.2 and we have all seen that a 680 MHz
processor and a 3D HW graphics accelerator can't even run the Symbian out there on its full speed. Some people say that bigger processor hogs up
more battery. That's again not true. When a processor is idle, it tends to use very little battery power. And there is no time in any Android phone that a 1
GHz processor is fully used. Its fully used only while benchmarking. Some of you would be thinking that what then the use of having a 1 GHz processor if
Android never uses more than 600 MHz power at any point of time. The answer is future apps. You would change your phone now and then just to have
some apps running that demand more processing power. I want to say one last thing. Did you people know that in the mobile industry, only Motorola,
Samsung, LG and Dell are the brands that are Six Sigma certified. Now that's what we call quality revolution. These brands will never compromise with
their quality. Even the leading brands like Apple, HTC, Sony Ericsson and Nokia are not Six Sigma certified.
I used to be a Nokia lover, until I stepped into the real world and faced myself against the reality. Then I realised that other brands are really miles ahead of
One more thing opposers! If you need to reply to my post, then you may do it quietly and in a composed manner. We do not need to fight all the way.
When calmly discussed, we can handle the thread a better way...

i need high antenna performance coz i live in rural area with low network coverage, which can't fullfill by sony ericsson. i m using nokia n86 8mp coz i m camera lover and very much satisfied with its screen resolution. i read many friends' opinion about n8, where n8 is crictisized by its screen resolution. isn't its resolution equal to n86 8mp.
Samsung is a good washing machine, refrigerator brand...in mobile phones it just doesnt do for me...so samsung should stop experimenting with mobile phones and concentrate on manufacturing washing machines...
backbone of N8 is very strong,i think android may fearing for virus attack by media file format.bu it hav lot of application ,i think no one use such apps regularly .we need only a little bit useful apps daily.
DoEs n8 support high definition rmvb?
How many new themes out of t he box
Thanks on that reply. I tried to get the inside scoop with the nokia customer service yesterday, but it seems like they are reading a card or are told to not give information out, really weird.
So do you think the silver looks better than the dark grey(black)?
At fist I wanted the silver but the black may look sorta "slate" looking so I may stick with that.

I pre-ordered the N8 in USA on 08/18/2010.
I have NOT received my shipping confirmation email from Nokia. This is taking forever!
I sorta wanted the silver but since the black was only available, I'm just going to stick with that.
So if you pre-order any other color tomorrow, when did Nokia say they might ship? Maybe a week later.
I'm finding out the pre-order was sorta a joke...seems like it anyway.
Ok Guys,i missi just want to know,which has the smoothest OS, the n900 or the n8??????
Any USA guys had any confirmaton yet if yours was shipped or have any confrimation.. I never had any yet so I cancelled my preorder form Aug. 16th I was suppose to get the black one which is the only color for the US... But the good news is all the other colors go on preorder tommrrow... I want the orange or silver one.....
