guys, stop arguing...its just a phone... you like iphone? get one... you like N8? so, get one..its personal choice and i think many posted opinions are just childish..me? i will get an N8, after reading this...
what i would like to know is why gsmarena are defending the nokia n8 from real cristisism? its a shakey operating system to say the least, i work in a phone shop and symbian causes the vast majoriety of our complaints. what nokia need to do in my opinion is get on the andriod bandwagon and ditch this datedm, slow, and unconvincing o.s
Hi all, I just wanna make sure that the colours wont fade out like N76 which I had before but because of the poor paint I had to get a new one.. so for the ones who bought it,, does it have a strong paint or not??

mallikarjun, 06 Oct 2010only 1200 mAh battery??? even 5233 has more than that! 5233 doesnt have amoled screen !
Well the touch screen seems to be ok ! not that likely to beat the HTC market....
there is no option to change the default message storage in nokia n8 that is you cannot chose to save your messages on either the 16GB or on SD card :(
Wheez, 06 Oct 2010Thats an opinion that doesnt hold true for me. I choose the N8 for its unrivaled hw features. ... morethe USB OTG is a nice extra feature ,as i mention more speed and less lag could much better not for me only but for the most of the phone users.
you might have no problems with the slowness and frequent unresponsive of symbian 3 (very obvious in youtube videos)because you only uses nokia phones,but for iOS and android users they should be told that symbian is completely 5 years back experience for them.
now let's go back to the USB OTG,some reviewers could not connect external hard drive to n8 and also others could not connect 16g flash memory,i wish they are wrong.
you've mentioned that mobile-review get paid by samsung,there is nothing wrong with that,because a lot of mobile websites get paid by phones manufacturers wither samsung,nokia,iphone...etc
in the form of money or the form of free phones.
and here is a proof: since when gsmarena defend a mobile phone reviewed by the others???!!!
gsmarena has got the n8 but no review till now,why?
only wasting the time by camera comparison game.
and we all know n8 has great if not the best camera,but our concern is symbian 3 lagging or not,web browser fast or slow,techradar review correct or wrong?????????

Symbian is really working hard on japan too. :)
Gingerbread will have a tough competition on high-end.
In response to Jack.
You seem to be a stinking fanatic of Nokia, Either your brain is too small or you are openly marketing for Nokia with half truths. Remember we are reviewing product superiority and you must dwell on the features, Performance, ease of operation and value for money not on irrelevant issues. We consumers are intelligent to choose based on the specifications and performance. You will make us loose interest on GSM arena for that unwarranted explanations.
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2010all you nokia haters just shut up and watch N8 stealing the show...it will rock.
And yes....j... moreNokia also has maemo (known as meego in the future). Especially meego is supposed to become Nokias high end smartphone OS. Symbian^4 will show up on some N-series phones as well.
Symbian appeals to me a lot more than the maemo, though

I would die to find out how this runs on the N8, since the N8 is featured in the advertisement video...
Take a look.
mallikarjun, 06 Oct 2010only 1200 mAh battery???
even 5233 has more than that! Trust me, the battery life, regardless of the mah, goes pretty much unrivaled.
Thats one of the biggest pros of this device.
all you nokia haters just shut up and watch N8 stealing the show...it will rock.
And yes....just imagine what would happen to all other android manufacturers if nokia will start working on it... Remember it is the no. 1 mobile company with just one OS...
Also, once again, just cos something is slower, doesnt mean its slow. Im very happy with the overall balance of speed, features, ussbility and looks. Of course thr iPhone is faster, it has nothing that would put any load on the system
I dont have to wait for stuff to happen any more so than I have to wait on my computer
phones fan, 06 Oct 2010the USB OTG and HDMI are not a deal breaker ,the processor,the speed,the screen resolution...e... moreThats an opinion that doesnt hold true for me. I choose the N8 for its unrivaled hw features. I knew it wouldnt be as smooty as iphone 4 for example. Just cos speed is more important than USB OTG for you doesnt mean its so for everyone.
Also mobile-review can be ignored pretty much. He hates Nokia cos they didnt give him a contract and hes a criminal anyway and pretty much gets paid by samsung
