i would not say i was a nokia fan but more of an symbian fan buts thats more because thats is the os that i am used to but have to admit that other os are faster and maybe smoother than the n8 from what i have seen on demo's but the n8 is still for me because it has a 12 meg camera with a Xenon flash and i also like the hdmi output which will come in handy so for being a split second slower maybe on an app opening i still think it the best all rounder smart phone available

Moreover, I am yet to read a review that mentions such a thing (mostly I only read about people going ga-ga over it), not that I need reviews for it. :)
Btw checked out an N8 today ! Pretty darn nifty I should say !
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010surely it cant match the desgn of xperia x10 with 4 inch screen :)It also can't match X10 in lacking multitouch and no flash support - never. :)
Lets be straight here mate. SE has clearly mentioned that X10 won't be getting Froyo. It can't promise 16m colors and it doesn't support multitouch at a hardware level.
Go to that link and read the comments of disgruntled SE customers regretting buying that thing for SE promised things that never got delivered.
So why would anyone buy it now ?

New waver, 02 Oct 2010Sorry Wheez. You're objective, but Super Amoled has no blue tint. :)Given, I have not compared them RL, although I've used a S AMOLED screen, but without comparing it's hard to say.
These pictures seem to show a blue tint:
Wheez, 02 Oct 2010This is tiresome fighting the Android crowd alone, but it's understandable cos I'm just about ... moreyou're doing a good job figthing back that flock of android fanboys!!we symbian lovers appressiate it so much!!it's just one thing that holds majority from answering:that android flock is soooooo brickheaded there's nothing you'll say or do to make them understand how wrong they are!!as for you THUMBS UP!!!NICE JOB!!
New waver, 02 Oct 2010You surely have not held N8 in your hand mate. :) Its anything but bulky.surely it cant match the desgn of xperia x10 with 4 inch screen :)
Well, CBD-AMOLED on E7 is way better (quality-wise) than Super-AMOLED it seems
It's a plus for Nokia here and all it's future phones if they keep CBD technology.

I think you can see the power of N8s GPU pretty well there. The CPU is inferior and it shows in some areas, but overall I think those are pretty even, every device has an emphasis on slightly different thing.
i am very very very very very ....... very happy i have just to wait 1 week , just 1 week and i will bay the N8 , 1 week and i will be the king .... hahaha

n i dont rate iphone that much although iphone 4 is much better than previous iphones but its OS looks like a toy infront of android OS
Its true Nokia phones are more durable, I'll give you that; but its not saying much about the quality of their build considering how thick they are.
I don't take the gpu to account largely due to the futility of mobile GPUs. Right now, phones are at a stage where user experience will still largely be dictated by the cpu. The n8's gpu is up to par, though.
N8 is a very high camera phone nowaday. Could any body tell me the price of N8 in china?
Thanks for help.
Let's try to more onwards from this phone war and discuss the N8 as it is.
I'm really loving the AMOLED screen. The LED backlit screens have the downside that they will suck alot of battery if the backlight isnt completely off while idle. The AMOLED technology allows you to have low battery consuming clock and date as a screensaver.
It's a little thing, but something I value highly, cos my phone is always my only clock and it sucks to turn the whole screen on/unlock it just to see the clock.
It's also very sensitive and accurate and the display is awesome. Naturally not quite Super AMOLED, but the Super AMOLED has a weird blue tint, which I don't really like. I wonder how long will Samsung hold back the Super AMOLED tech? They are the only ones making it so they have total monopoly over it.
I've checked the new 'HTC Desire HD' (android 2.2 phone) and It doesn't even support secondary camera which is a must for me... BIG FAIL!
with crappy LCD (no AMOLED) which is BIG FAIL!
where the heck is FM Transmitter on Desire HD?? BIG FAIL!
Bluetooth 2.1? what the...? we aren't in 2007 BIG FAIL!
do you want me to pay for my NAVigation?? BIG FAIL!
no HDMI port what the heck?? BIG FAIL!
no dual mic? so recording is bad compared to others... BIG FAIL!
inferior 8MP camera for the losers booo.. BIG FAIL!
So, what's the good about battery sucking android phones??? simply NOTHING
(IF) I want to consider an android phone, I would wait at least it gets matured (Android 3.0+) even by that time MeeGo will be there.
This is tiresome fighting the Android crowd alone, but it's understandable cos I'm just about the only one here that has already recieved the device.
Which makes me wonder, why do they come here and bash the N8 (usually with poor or no back up)? If their Android phones are so great, why do they feel the need of bashing something else down to just to make people notice their devices. Are they insecure or something?
Well,the N8 might not have a 1 Ghz processor but it certainly has two things that other products don't offer. Reliability and durability!!! How many other touch screen phones can you use while you are drenched in sweat or while it's raining??? You can't use the iphone or the galaxy s under these conditions but believe me, i have used my nokia 5800 and i'm posting this with it! Also how many hard falls can the iphone or the galaxy s can endure??? My 5800 had 7,it has a plastic body but still it's perfect! With the aluminum body,the N8 will be even stronger and durable. That's what makes the N8 special!!! :)
