tictactaylor, 08 Oct 2010Why such a low resolution display? Using to write reply on an Orange San Francisco, a k a Zte ... moreNokia will not use Android. They have Symbian and maemo/meego. Going with android would make them a bulk manufacturer and probably kill nokia in the long run.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010Even if the display was 50*50 nokia fans will be happy. The same applies to iphone or android... moreYou completely ignore the GPU of the N8 that brings it on par with other 1ghz devices both in real life and benchmarks. I like you objective approach, but you need to do more research next time
N8 pretty much has a better battery life even when its battery is only 1200 mah.
Lots of Media Support.
Good software upgrade mechanism.
OK Features set.
Min-Priced handset sim free: 300$
Not many apps available.
Lots of apps.
Not open, as in most of the features are blocked.
Apps only via itunes.
Min-Priced handset sim free: 500$
Less resource intensive.
Less battery consumed.
Lots of apps.
Completely open, the user can use all the features to its full extent.
Negative Media Publicity.
Catching onto the new touch features.
Slow development pace.

The same applies to iphone or android... moresamsung has higher processor but battery is very bad..i charge twice a day my galaxy s.. galaxy s has mentioned as more battery power but it never worked what they said..android n.eed more power as well but still my SGS lags..so overall i prefer the phone should be well balanced whatever cpu or RAM
tictactaylor, 08 Oct 2010Why such a low resolution display? Using to write reply on an Orange San Francisco, a k a Zte ... moreEven if the display was 50*50 nokia fans will be happy. The same applies to iphone or android fans. Lets stop being fans of phone companies and start thinking about which phone to buy after seeing the phones and consulting people who own the phones. Basically i feel nokia has again taken a sick approach and not given us a fast processor. The present processor might be enough for symbian but imagine what a fast processor would have done. Regarding lower battery life that is no excuse, they need to also develop better batteries just like other phone companies like samsung and iphone have done.
Why such a low resolution display? Using to write reply on an Orange San Francisco, a k a Zte Blade. Let's see you get a 480x800 oled display that many feel is as good at that of a desire. Many like me were waiting for Nokia to produce a decent smart phone is this it? Even the phone I'm using that cost 99 uk sounds is better regarding speed of processor and screen , plus do feel anything symbian is past it's sell by date. Where are Nokia's android phones? Samsung can produce phones with different operating systems why not Nokia?
N8 will be available here in Pinas on Oct 23 on pre-orders.
it comes with a 16GB USB thumbdrive!
it is sad that all the haters leave their various forum to the n8 forum just to bash it even those very savvy people still say things that get me suprised at how savvy they really are. the nokia n8 is just one phone and no one phone that exactly complete cos in making a smartphone u have to give sumthin for the other. the say the n8 should do this like the iphone, do that like the andriods and that again like bada phones it is just one phone and it cant be all ur various phones at once.the n8 is the n8 and it has its high sides which out weighs its draw backs in my opinion n8 rocks and u guy are just threaten by its existence.
Must have apps and games for n8
nokia internet radio
garmin mobile xt
opera mobile mini
ovi maps racing and challenge
Nokia is a company that focus only on making phones,
n8 very close to perfection, but e7 is bit dissapointing
n9 will be popular if it is candybaf
From GSMArena review....
"it has every chance of being announced as the best Nokia smartphone since the N95."
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010hahaha. very true. symbian guys will know the nokia support quality within a few months. 5800 ... moreAt least they are giving updates, unlike samsung and SE WHICH happens to use android. N since when this became a nokia 5800 page? My god u android fans comments are like forcing people to buy android phones. Hello, as consumers have the rite to choose and not listen to bullshit. Go back to where u came from haters, ur comments just makes this phone more popular.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010hahaha. very true. symbian guys will know the nokia support quality within a few months. 5800 ... moreIt is for now. Symbian is an OS made for non-touch phones. I presume that android got numerous updates too when they are starting. Now symbian has just release it's ^3 version, an OS optimized for touchscreens only. Just few of more waits till we see who the real king is.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010hahaha. very true. symbian guys will know the nokia support quality within a few months. 5800 ... morehaha my galaxy s got firmware update in one week after the release date..now also lag is not going..go n figure out..iphone got many firmware after release of iphone 4..people like u dumb should not comment ..
[deleted post]hahaha. very true. symbian guys will know the nokia support quality within a few months. 5800 got maximum updates. why? because it could never get stable. is this the maturity and reliability of symbian??
android is better than symbian, now its up to you, whether you can accept this fact or not!!!
Partha, 08 Oct 2010Guys,i don't hav 3G/2G/WiFi available,so i am mostly depended on EDGE for internet browsing. S... moreI use an N86, and it's got class 32 EDGE, the speed is far superior to class 10 e.g. class 10 maxes out at 12-15 kbps where class 32 gets upto 25-30 kbps (depends on your network, I use Aktel). I don't know though how much speed boost will class 33 give over class 32...
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010Do you have an option like for example Blackyberry using any font with any size you want? even... moreThere's no need arguing about the font. It's the most unimportant thing when choosing a phone. But to answer ur question; the fact that symbian can change the system font by the use of some 3rd party apps is a good enough basis to say that symbian supports those functions. They'll just not injecting it natively like your BB.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010you guys want a Camera or Phone? Phone with a good camera ;)
Personally I bought the N8 for totally other reasons than the camera. While I also love the camera cos its awesome to have a point and shoot quality camera always with you.
As a phone the N8 trumps most other smartphones out there.
