Joe, 05 Oct 2010Ohh really dats cool, then wheez please put a brief summary of this device just like gsmarena ... moreIt has been available from Nokia (for preorderers and new customers) since last thursday and I've been posting my feelings here ever sicne that thursday.
I've been extremely satisfied and I don't really have any negative things to say about this device. Just about the only negative thing I can come up with is the speaker positioning, which is in the camera "bulge", meaning that if its on the table screen up, it will partially mute the sound. Apart from that, the photo/video editor and OVI store work abit slowly compared to the rest of the device, bad optimization or something. However all 3 get the job done just perfectly. Other than those the phone is very swift and theres not much waiting to be done.
I wouldn't change my N8 for any other smartphone currently out there, even if you gave me 3 of them.
If you want to see the camera quality, search for "veijojarvi" here in the GSMArenas N8s pages comment search and you'll find some pics taken by me. I'm a crappy photographer and all the settings are on default, so someone else can certainly take better pics, but those are pretty good seeing all that
Joe, 05 Oct 2010But how from where he got it, its still not on stores & pre booking is going on.He is in Finland, they have had deliveries already.
Mark, 05 Oct 2010Wheez has the device....Ohh really dats cool, then wheez please put a brief summary of this device just like gsmarena guys do if you can. it will really help to knw about this.
No body has experienced this device & posting anything ha ha ha :). Just wait guys for some time have a look, experience it & then post anything regarding N8 good, bad or watever.

[deleted post]Will you please, for the love of anything that is good in this world, stop spreading lies, educate yourself and stop playing tricks on the good readers of this website?
It seems GSMArena is the last bastion of fairness & objectivity.

It feels really, really nice with the aluminium weight and sturdy design,
Faxandu, 05 Oct 2010If this was an Android-phone it would have been awesome. To bad they choosed Symbian 3 as the OSIf this phone ran Android, it would have to be radically different which wouldnt make it the same great N8 anymore.
680 Mhz CPU wouldnt suffice, they'd have to add it up to 1ghz that would eat the battery to such extents that they couldnt physically and/or battery lifes sake be able to run the current GPU. Also Android can't use the GPU to render UI at the moment so it would probably just be replaced with a crap integrated GPU. Then, just by changing to Android we would probably sacrifice 40% of the battery life, just cos we changed the OS. In return we would get some eyecandy and overall a good OS, but such that still has problems that need ironing out, moreso than the Symbian^3. It's getting better with each new version of Android, but theres still lots of work to be done to be where Symbian is.
Currently Android most likely can't support stuff like USB OTG, so that would have to be programmed in, which probably wont be made until the next bigger version (and 2.2 isnt even widely available really yet)
So no, it would not be better with Android. Iäm absolutely loving the Symbian^3, it's very good. It's not that pretty, but its good.

Dwane, 05 Oct 2010Wheez I don't know if you saw my question last night before it was sabatarged and deleted? ... moreNo I didnt see it. Cant try either cos i lost the data cable for my E65 and it doesnt use micro usb. Even if that wouldnt work theres an application in this phone exactly for that that leta u sync the nokia phones if/when u change. Didnt try it though, didnt have anything but numbers that i wanted to change and those are on SIM
I read some websites say N8 camera suck when compare to iPhail 4. You know why? Bcos those people didnt remove a clear plastic covering the camera lens before using the camera. Laughed my ass off...
Anyway Eldar Murtazin going to get busted already...

[deleted post]For each of those rigged and biased reviews there are like 2 pages dedicated to prove em wrong and 2 youtube video answers proving them wrong
Only a complete idiot will believe any of those camera comparisons (Gizmodo, engadget, mobile-review)
