Wheez, 05 Oct 2010Paid 499€ for mine last thursday.Hi Wheez,
How are the headphones and how fast is Opera! Lemme know pls!
phones fan, 05 Oct 2010after checking the latest n8 video on youtube ,i can tell that the phone is worth 3.5 stars bu... moreHow did you bring Bada in the same league as that of Symbian, Android or iOS ;).
By seeing their app store i guess they might stop supporting Bada too in the near future ;)
I like to buy because of the usefullness of this phone and the price its quite affordable in the kingdom.I hope more third party softwares will be develop this year and more power to nokia developer.
[deleted post]Who the hell is "we" ? The Samsung propaganda brigade? Ill be honest with you:
I have little respect for Samsung as a company ( I love Korea though )
I hate their substandard service
I hate the lies they spread about pentile screen resolution. (Ars Technica settled that score)
I do not like that they send in masses of people to influence votes and ranking since they are not number 1.
I have NO respect for you, as you claim people that do not share your subjective opinion on Korean phones do not respect you. That is so terrible arrogant and self referencing, that its the type of malice that starts wars.
I have NO respect for you, if you "report" other peoples posts, just because it does not match your opinion.
And on top of that, if you feel that way, by all means leave and go dream about updates and service that Samsung will never give you in the Samsung threads. What are you doing here? Who are you trying to silence? What kind of person are you?
how is the phone.........................................................................................
Marvin, 05 Oct 2010Hi Wheez,
I’ve been following your informative posts for quite a while now and I really app... moreI don't really use that stuff myself but I think I read off another forum that it doesnt have that. As for VoIP, theres at least like Skype and Fring apps available on the OVI store.
I've posted so many messages in a short time that GSMArena is throwing the flood protection error at me again, so don't wonder if it takes a long time to answer.
Just had a look at the demo. Phone is really good. it's smooth and the touch is very responsive. And symbian 3 looks like a perfected version of old symbian. Awesome phone
Wheez, 05 Oct 2010Most certainly that does alot. Just being used to those transition effects everywhere and then... morein that case...am booking it tomorrow then...dont really care about the other stuff...i can live with it..i just need the camera .. thnx man
satan, 05 Oct 2010i agree ... i have the famous n82...since 2 n half years and it never ever disappointed me...i... moreMost certainly that does alot. Just being used to those transition effects everywhere and then suddenly having none will certainly make it feel slower.
I don't think Nokia has at least announced or planned publicily any phones that would rival the N8s camera. I think it will be like THE camera model from Nokia at least a year or so.
I’ve been following your informative posts for quite a while now and I really appreciate your patience and efforts!
Can you please verify whether the N8 has a native SIP client (stack) built-in? If it supports VoIP natively you should be able to modify settings under “Settings” and then “admin. Settings” (well at least that was the way it was down with previous Nokia phones that supported VoIP).
Thanks and best regards,
THE NEXT BIG THING, 05 Oct 2010@wheez
mate sry i meant xenon,and also can you tell me how was the gorrila display is it real... moreHard to say, mine is totally scratch free for now, been carrying it in my pocket without any covers or protective screen film thingies.
Youtube has some pretty good video about how scratch resistant gorilla glass is.
Wheez, 05 Oct 2010Well yeah, the N8 has nowhere near the amounts of transition effects than the iPhone. That's o... morei agree ... i have the famous n82...since 2 n half years and it never ever disappointed me...i have waited for the perfect upgrade till now..coz all the phones that came up ill now missed one feature or the other..like xenon flash or carl zeiss lens or processor speed etc...however i need the perfect camera phone upgrade...so i guess theres no other choice than n8..and plz leave htc or samsung as the term camera can only be related to nokia...
the point is are there going to be any other new phones from nokia with respect to camera? if so then i will continue with n82..otherwise i have to get the n8..
also maybe since am using iphone for the past 1 year,maybe thats why i am feeling n8 to be slow...cant really decide..maybe i need to test the n8 again more patiently
[deleted post]I'm still waiting for the explanation, how am I doing wrong my reporting posts that violate the rules that you accept by posting?
phones fan, 05 Oct 2010after checking the latest n8 video on youtube ,i can tell that the phone is worth 3.5 stars bu... moreThis is where different values come in. Techradar did not even mention USB OnTheGo. A feature that alone earns 5 stars, a feature is now so necessary for me that I wouldn't even consider buying a device without it.
Techradar has been criticized cos it was a very biased review. They were solely reviewing it iPhone in mind. Instead of giving it a fair chance and reviewing the device as it is, they compared everything to the iPhone.
Also, the guy was very clueless as techradar. He said this "We know that people will say that there's a desire for such organisation, but it should be more like the iPhone: choosing to make folders than having to wade through clicks and swipes just to find where the email client is"
Really? All it takes me to get to the email client is to unlock the phone and I see two first messages status there. One tap on the widget and I got the whole client open. Not quite as he described.
Also, read what GSMArena thinks of these biased unfair reviews (Techradar, CNET, Gizmodo, Engadget, Mobile-review comes to mind):
Wheez, 05 Oct 2010I don't have a PS3 and never tried anything like that. However if you did it with your N97, it... more@wheez
mate sry i meant xenon,and also can you tell me how was the gorrila display is it really strong,i dont want you to break ur phone offcorse:),but is it scratch resistant,and SATAN for heavens sake we buy a phone coz we like it and not coz its slow or fast its just coz we Nokians are not so brain dead like F*ck phone fanboys.............
and cheers mate i am getting mine here in BOMBAY at 15 oct ps (no offence ) ;)
satan, 05 Oct 2010hey wheez....
its nice to know that that irritating vibration can be offed...
the homesc... moreWell yeah, the N8 has nowhere near the amounts of transition effects than the iPhone. That's one of the reasons it feels so smooth and fast cos you don't feel like waiting so long when you see stuff happening.
I'd personally turn them off even if the N8 had them, just a waste of battery for me.
As for adding widgets being harder. Abit depending on what you are adding, but if you call one press & hold and 2 taps hard, then I don't know if Symbian phones will ever be suitable for you :D
Symbian certainly is abit "harder" to use than the others, but there's a reason for that. It also has like double the features and functionality at this point. It doesn't get more simple to do stuff than it is on iPhone at the moment, but you also have to realize that it also has several times less features to offer as well.
Either way, your points are valid and that is why I've often suggested other phones than the N8 to people asking here, like for you example, the iPhone may be more suitable for you. They are good at different things, the N8s biggest strength is not in smooth transactions and easyness of use.
But the easy usability too depends. I havn't had any other Symbian touch screen phones, I havn't opened the manual yet, but I've found everything I've wanted to very easily and from logical places so far. I don't really even understand how could it be any more simple without sacrificing the ability to let the user decide anything.
