mk, 07 Oct 2010Guys, can any tell me about asphalt5 on n8.....mk, asphalt5 is under work (optimization) and will be ready soon.
I've been following these forum from last 7 days and see lot of Nokia bashers here!.
I own a Sony K750I and now planning to swith to N8. Let me give my view points:
I am a person who look at the value for money. and I think N8 gives it!
This one reason is sufficient for a normal user who doesn't give a s**t about the processor speed and operating system. (Which are the main drawbacks according to Android and iPhone fanboys).
If my phone performs all operations perfectly with a good speed and supports multitasking I don't give a f**k about what processor sits inside or what OS runs on it. It doesn't matter whether 680MHz ARM or some 1GHz snapdraon, Whether it's some funky Android or a Symbian!
For me , my phone should work and must be durable. That's all!....and nokia phones are known for these!
Look at the blind shootout results!
It beats a dedicated cameraphone (Sony HX5v) comprehensively. (Forget about the other phone in compitition!)
In India this camera costs at least 15K, so it is like buying a camera. (Though I agree that this phone doesn't provide FULL camera functionalities loke optical zoom)
Next point is the Video shooting capabilities. It has 720p@25fps cam which is more than enough for shooting your special occasions. So you get a video cam which is more than enough for a normal user.
I also read that no other smartphones are anywhere near to the battery performance of this phone.
Next is build quality, with Aluminium finishing i´t is very sturdy and is ideal for rough usage and also lasts longer than any other plastic phones.
It has 16 GB storage and I can use it as a music player.
So to summarize, you buy N8 it is eqúivalent to:
1) A very good digicam (Sa 10K)
2) An average video cam (That's OK for me!) (Say 5K)
3) A music player with enough memory (1K)
4) HDMI connectivity: Watch movies/photos, play games on TV! (replaces your media player) (3k)
5) A very good battey life (No other smartphone beats it in this regard!)
6) Amazing build quality, very sturdy
7) Finally it's market leader Nokia's phone! (Phone works perfectlu unlike iPhone, where the main feature Phone itself has problems!)
For me, these reasons are enough to say that It's worth 26K (In India). So there's no wonder it's drawing everyone's attention here and will sell like a hot cake (or hot Dosa!) in India.
Not to forget that these are the main selling points according to me apart from so many other features this phone provides like USB on the go, USB charging, FM Tx/Rx, gorilla glass etc.
[deleted post]They released it last thursday, but nice try.
I havnt found a single bug yet either, Symbian^3 is in very good shape out of the box
HA, 07 Oct 2010The display resolution is too low, so screen looks so poor.check it out its same as others i better then iphone screen resolution
You have to remember that its not only about shippings. N8s preorders exceeded their every expection.
Theres no point shipping out small batches and if you already have a factory running around the clock every day, how would you do overtime? :D
HA, 07 Oct 2010The display resolution is too low, so screen looks so poor.Have you actually seen it live or are you just hugging numbers? In gsmarenas side by side comparison, i couldnt find any difference worrh mentioning from the resolutions
i know u commented on the loudspeaker lvl b4..
but if by any chance, u if you would compare it to a nokia 5800, or the old N73...
its easy to ffind those in a mobile shop while ur walking on the street XD.. to u it may be a detail, but i would rrl like to know how loud and clear it is..
currently owning a E72, and the loud speaker is the main shame :(
Hi there guys in Jakarta,just went to Nokia Mampang store. The phone will be ready on Oct16..I tested the demo unit..everything was awesome..good prossecor, good camera..but the speakerphone was horrible..it was equal to E72..very low sound. But if you use the headphone will be different. Ready for preorder @Rp.4.95jt
