check out the reviews of nokia n8 n its very disappointing.... i thought i would buy nokia n8 but really disappointed with this device
guess i have to go for android
S^3 was the way Symbian OS 5th should have been
and remember S^3 isn't the high end device or the devices that Nokia planning to return to the smartphone world with.
It's a new device nokia opening the competition with
S^4 and meego are what Nokia planning to battle with
And this is what I'm after. Mature, constructive discussion. I don't mind the tiniest bit with iPhone beign talked about here, when it's relevant to the N8 page by it's topics and as long as the comparing and discussion doesn't exceed certain limits.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2010check nokia wiki page. Its income has been slipping. no doubt nokia is largest but losing its ... moreAs for the income, there are very few things that actually increased their income the last year cos of the recession. Firing the CEO of Nokia cos of that was very stupid. "You are obviously the reason that the whole world is in recession so we fire you".
I read that at least one thing had been sold more during the recessions and that was ladies erotic toys :D
Apple might've made more profit than it did before, but that may be due to few things. Nokia has been in the business for so long that it's best times profitwise were when there were no serious competition around. Apple then again hasn't really done anything worth while (I still find Macs a joke, I can't help it) until the iPhone which started 2007. It's undeniably a very succesful phone and a brand now, but at this point Apple can basically only go up. The situation may be whole different in 10 years. One last reason I give is that Apple was also lucky that Nokias flagship phones during that time failed due to a sum of many things, which obviously drove some people to rather buy Apple products.
The N8 however is a whole new page in Nokias history and N97 is a slight scratch into Nokias rep, but it's healing very nicely with the N8.
The back cover heating up isn't necessarily a problem.
Let's a take a few examples.
If we had two identical devices but other one had N8s aluminium back cover and other one the iPhone glass. The aluminium would heat up but the glass wouldn't.
In the glass situation, just cos the back cover doesnt heat up doesnt mean the heat isnt there. Cos that's exactly where it is. It's inside. It's alot more hazardous for the components than the aluminium conducting the heat out.
This necessarily isn't the thing the iPhone cos iPhone and N8 are not identical, but that was an example how the device not heating at all can be alot more dangerous than it heating up.
Another good example is the Nokia Booklet 3G. It's an unibody aluminium design, with NO fans, NO active cooling of any kind. It is passively cooled, it's thus extremely silent. So far I havn't heard any serious cryouts for overheating in the booklets case either.
i wish nokia menu's come with higher graphics 3d display and2b more beautifull

i have the satio but plan on getting the n8 very soon but i would love to see n8 photos compared to satio's photos
When is gsmarena team going to conduct a detailed review of N8? I believe N8 have started their pre-orders.
Am eagerly awaiting the same.

It does not NEED those things to succeed as long as Android still can't compete as well in features and functionality. But I agree, it can't just lie down and think "oh well I have the biggest market share and it will stay that way". Competition is fierce.
But Meego and S^4 are on it's way. I have full trust in S^3s success as well as S^4s and Meegos. Meego isn't really my taste if its anything like the Maemo on N900 though, but Symbians I do like :)

N8 material is aluminium which is very easy to extrude and produce. If nokia want success, it needs better browser, UI, music quality and player, better apps store, better design. N8 is a lot nicer than older nokias but still not very unique like iphones. i just checked tesco and n8 is onli 328pounds onli where iphone 4 is 500 pounds there. Nokia should aim for lesser body parts as possible. I had battery heat problem with my original iphone with metal back. So, n8 probably has that problem too esp when charging
[deleted post]My message was cut in half, I'll repost it:
I don't necessarily disagree with you. Those are certainly the things that iPhone 4 does VERY VERY well. That's why it is so popular.
However I don't think it's as simple as affording. Maybe if you don't need the phone for much anything else than those mentioned, but overall the N8 brings alot more bang for the buck.
See it like a swiss army knife. It does shitloads of things decently/well, but isn't necessarily the best in anything (apart from like camera in N8s case and some personal preference thing - I think the N8 is the prettiest smartphone out there and has the best materials, but thats just my opinion).
That's why I personally got the N8, cos I don't have to be the best in few things, I rather have alot of options and features myself. Then again, if N8 costed as much as iPhone 4 does, I probably wouldn't have bought it and that's not about not having the money, it's about not wanting to use just that much (in Finland 16gb iP4 is like some 700 euros and 32gb over 800 euros) in to a mobile phone.
For me personally, 500€ is by far the most I've ever used on a mobile phone, but I do see it 100% worth it.

How about if you put the N8 on the table, when it vibrates, does it move on the table / rattles a lot ? If it does, that should be strong enough for me.
