Galaxy S has things that the N8 can only dream about. It's still ALL about trade offs in mobile phones, that's why it's good to have diversity.
The N8 isn't any better than Galaxy S, Galaxy S isn't any better than the N8, on a "global scale". These are opinions. For me, the N8 suits me alot better, no question about it, but someone who never takes photos, doesnt have use for USB OTG etc may be better off with the Galaxy S.
It is, hands down, the one of the top smartphones out there along with the likes of iPhone 4 (I hate calling it a smartPHONE but ok then), Samsung Wave and the N8 for example.
[deleted post]You don't think right? Well No firmware update for sure will get the galaxy anywhere near the n8s ASTONISHING camera nor will it usb otg, real multitasking, scratch immune unibody aluminium casing or battery life.
Mark, 05 Oct 2010Yes I have read them, I like the Wave as a device better than the Galaxy S though...
I just... moreI too saw some issues with galaxy, hence my decision, plus I had been waiting for this and would've happily kept waiting but my phone died on me unexpectedly. Well, the wait is finally going to be over soon when it launches here in India. :)
And again, Images can lie mate. I have the device and it has its bad points of course, the display though is not one of them. I am sure I would've noticed had it had a blue tint, or read about it in any major reviews. Anyway, this is a discussion for some other day. And thank you too *sometimes it becomes hard to reply in here with a display name such as mine ;)*
Have you bought it btw ? Or waiting ?
[deleted post]Grow up already, that does not belong here (or really anywhere, cos that's very childish). Talk about the N8 or go vent somewhere else.
satan, 05 Oct 2010i agree ... i have the famous n82...since 2 n half years and it never ever disappointed me...i... morehey satan about what u said about the gd caera phone can only be handle to Nokia,i dnt agree with u
yes N8 is a gr8 phone
but when u come to camera and fast phones there is no better than the Sony ericsson:)
New waver, 05 Oct 2010I don't give a hoot about awards too, just that it must have something for them to acknowledge... moreYes I have read them, I like the Wave as a device better than the Galaxy S though...
I just linked to that blog, if you read, you will see they have images from a russian review site, that has nothing to do with Nokia.
Lets see and compare later :) Thanks for the courteous discussion.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2010haha putting so many in less specs device?? welcome laggingMine doesn't lag. Overall it's probably not as fast as the iPhone 4, but I knew that from the start and it's a part of the tradeoff.
I rather have the freedom of Symbian with the HW features no app can give you. And I'm very happy with that decision.
New waver, 05 Oct 2010You didn't get the point. :) N8 has a very good screen agreed. But to say that Super Amoled is... moreDisplay does not weigh much in my decision of buying N8. I bought N8 for its super camera, support and solid quality of hardware build and capability of hardware.
any one of the nokia n8 user please check and tell the answer.
go to settings> general> personalisation> themes> general> option> theme effect on/off
please check the theme effect on/off option...

But to say that Super Amoled is blueish, you have to personally see it and not in the pictures. Did you get it now mate ?
Anyway, I am neither here to fight, nor to discuss Samoled so peace !
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2010watch 7:42 of video prt 2 showing n8 is slow by mynokiablog which can't be iphone lover n noki... moreWell it would be pretty alarming if N8 would be faster with "lesser specs" and with 10 times the feature than the iPhone. I mean, the iPhone has to be good at something too, right? :D

16.4, 05 Oct 2010hey wheez.
i need lil bit of explanation on the modem.
how does it work as a modem.
second... moreThe modem thing was as easy as connecting the device via cable or bluetooth, when it gets the connection, you just select PC Modem or something and pretty much good to go.
The N8 can be used as a WIFI hotspot as well with JoikuSpot, but I havn't tried it myself.
And whoever asked, yes, I do recommend this phone, from the bottom of my heart!
