Hi Wheez (or anyone who genuinely has an n8), I was wondering about how good the web is experience is, yes I know it does not have the option to open a new tab (yet) but when your on this forum on your n8 and you hover over the bit that says 'reply to....' does it still show you what it is in reply to? like it does on a laptop? As it does on my n95.
Also is there an option to set an individual text message alert for different people like you can with voice calls for different people?
Small things I know but I and I'm sure others would like to know so would really appreciate knowing, while we in the UK still wait patiently ;-(
The battery life is really impressing.
I took over 50 pictures today of a book I needed to copy to myself, the text is very detailed and so are all the pictures in the book. I took em with 12 mpix to ensure readability.
Also several hours of browsing the web plus like 24 hours of standby. 48% of battery left and it has been on normal power usage mode. I could easily get through tomorrow, cos I don't have to take those 50 12mpix photos, which took a good chunk of the battery day, but I have the habit of charging it every night in case I end up using it more extensively that I originally planned so I don't wanna risk it and run out of battery in case of emergencies etc.
Using the battery saving mode the whole time and not doing extremely battery consuming thing like taking those high quality pictures, this would go on almost forever :D

Note, the phone IS NOT laggy there. Those mentioned applications are. I can multitask as much as I want even when they are on with no problems, just that those applications UI work slowly compared to the rest of the phone. They still get the job done no problem, it's just that those applications UIs slowness just "pops up".
This early review looks like quite realistic:

If I were to believe pictures more than personal experience, then I wouldn't have been on this page mate. :) Seems that things make more sense when they happen to you right ?

UI is fluid and fast unlike many of us were expecting. That is why haters have left nothing to target but camera. Low resolution isn't either a issue as per many reviews.
Report..iphone 4 was outdated by this thing..hahaha

You mentioned something about it being a bit laggy in video and photo editor ? Mine seemed as fast there. How about your own ?

Have a look at display comparisons by various sources. They are posted collectively on that site.

Have a look on N8 vs Galaxy S vs iPhone display (posted on mobile.dailyforum.se). AMOLED comes 99% close to SAMOLED in terms of colour reproduction, viewing angle. SAMOLED infact produces unnecessary bluish tint on white background. It beats AMOLED only in terms of viewing under direct sunlight and power efficiency.
Eldar is a moron.

We should wait for GSMArena, and other outlets and then decide. Eldar is good for leaks but bad for reviews, not because they are not extensive but because they are biased.
The lawyer was right and he will be charged.
Anyhow, in other news, remember there was a SE X10 guy here, I forgot his name, he was saying the X10 was so much better :
This is another problem with Android phones, who knows if you will ever get an update, regardless of what Google wants & does.....
i sold my Samsung Galxy s for N8. i have booked my new N8 Dark Grey. I m in love N8. specialy its New OS and 12 mp Camera. N8 Rocks

It's all about tradeoffs in mobile phones. That's why you simply can't rank phones in order cos they vary so much and people value different stuff.
Mark, 04 Oct 2010Nokia is taking Mr Murtazin to court, because he is a criminal and not a blogger, even validat... moreI have read Mr Murtazin statement,in mobile-review website and for me the man seems to be honest,he wrote about the problems in nokia 5800 handsets,wrote about the drawbacks of the n97 which as we all know was a big big failure for nokia,and the lowyer who is accusing Mr murtazin said that murtazin wrote negative review about the X10 and the lowyer thinks that the review is not correct he thinks that x10 is a successful phone so i am telling this lier go to x10 forum and see how the phone is outdated and has many issues that still can not be fixed .
