[deleted post]The phone has been released in some countries. I got mine already on thursday.
For someone else asking:
I havn't had any hangs on it, it's very swift.
I personally won't use a screen protector. It's gorilla glass and should be basically immune against those little scratches. Also not having anything else in the same pocket as your phone helps alot.
I would rate it 4,5/5, mainly for the sake of not wanting to give anything full rating cos nothing's perfect :D
I don't mind the default theme/fonts, but I'd guess fonts could be changeable by themes if nothing else.

Wheez, 03 Oct 2010Feel free to ask me, if you want to. I've owned the device since thursday.Have you ever experienced any hang on nokia n8?
Do we need screeen protector for n8
any internet radion youtube video downloader?
Can upload some more screen shot of threaded sms, smiley,your way of homescreen customization,
how to change font?
can nokia N8 be charged by connecting it to a laptop USB port like iphones and blackberry. thanks
Other than that, I'm VERY VERY satisfied with the N8 and would not trade it for an iPhone 4 or any Android phone if I was offered to.
A good thing to note on techradars review is the user rating. Naturally they arn't necessarily any more objective either, but like the first user reviewer at least mentions USB OTG.
So take the official reviews with a grain of salt as well.
I can't reflect like any of the feelings they shed there. My biggest issue with the phone currently is that the original browser somehow seems to lack a feature to open a new window/tab. You can still do that with a trick, but it could/should be alot easier. Well, a new browser written in Qt is on it's way anyways.
Here's some more "proof" about the Android/iPhone mindset the reviewers had:
* Funky good looks
* 12-megapixel camera can challenge a compact snapper
* Responsive capacitive touchscreen
* Software is confusing and frustrating in places
* Fewer apps available than with rival phones
* Poor social-networking integration
Superb battery life
Clear and crisp screen
Decent audio output
Stylish aluminium casing
Average virtual keyboards
Unimpressive internet experience
Confusing connection management
Awful social network integration
Both seemed to clearly ignore like one of the most important things for me and many others. Let's take the USB OTG. "Ehm, what's this, the iphone doesnt have it, well I'll just not mention it". It's naturally OK if you you don't personally value it, but it certainly deserves a mention. That's how you write objectively. For example it could've been "While I personally don't have much use for the USB OnTheGo, I can see it being valued by many"
Utter bullshit is what those reviews are
Cant understand why there is no review of N8 in gsm arena till now,,, Tech radar posted its 10 page review about 5 days back...... here is the link
Gsm arena please review the phone... fast... i don wanna squander my money if its a worthless phone!!!!!
Wheez, 03 Oct 2010Morning again. Shame that someone reported all my posts like 3 times for the sake of getting e... moreNot to mention you can make all the folders you want to on the N8 as well. Or if one pleases you could make the same kind of bunch of icons out of the homescreens as well.
Morning again. Shame that someone reported all my posts like 3 times for the sake of getting em deleted.
There was plenty of good information that broke none of the rules, but automation, gift and a curse.
Techradar and CNet reviews are both not so objective. The author has pretty much already set his/her mind to Android/iPhone and you can clearly see it. While I guess it's totally OK as an opinion, but I do not see that as unbiased review.
Let's take that quote from techradar again:
"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? Funny how putting the email client on the homescreen (after which it's accessible by a single tap) takes 1 press & hold and 2 taps. But NATURALLY all the icons are better when bunched in identical pages.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2010Wow, can't wait till it comes to SL! Awesome phone,looks really nice! : )I was thinkin how much wil it cost in SL..wil b more than 100 000 LKR..
[deleted post]Apparently everyone who knows a thing about photography disagrees with you, the Editors themselves think the N8 was better (even now) and the commenters indicate that the taken approach greatly benefits the iPhone over the N8. They should have up res'd the iPhone images, then crop. Now its a crapshoot favoring the least megapixel image. Additionally, did you notice how there are no night shots, no very low light shots, that only the N8 audio is used and that the N8 video is not shown at its native frame rate but stretched to fit Youtube, which happens to coincide with the fps for the iPhone. They should have uploaded this to Vimeo instead.
In any case, the fact that you come over here to spout this baseless drivel, is proof enough in itself of your intent, but the utter lack of regard for any of the relevant points above in your statement really seal the deal.
Fanboy, be gone!
