to summarise n8 gives u maximum features in one device at a competitve price may be with less eye candyness and smoothness compared to iphone 4 and android phones. if any one wants to buy iphone 4 he has to be prepared to shell out lot of money 1st to buy the phone then to buy the apps and be prepared to do it all thru its app store. the actual competitors in features for n8 are android phones with better eyecandyness n smoother interface but still missing few things like free navigation, hdmi out, usb on the go. So budget conscious ppl will be deciding bet n8 and htc desire hd and iphone 4 will be out of qn.
AJay, 02 Oct 2010Well that was the main attraction. How about symbian 3? Does it hang a lot?its ok but as compared to my brothers android xperia x10, my n8 software is not that special n i used it less to confirm any hang problems or not
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010only thing good about this phone is the camera Well that was the main attraction. How about symbian 3? Does it hang a lot?
Looks like us in India have to wait till october 13th. What's the verdict guys. Does the phone live up to the hype?

jael, 02 Oct 2010hi wheeze im gonna ask some question to ur n8, how the camera performance? bacause carl zei... moreBattery should not be removed by the user. Nokia care will do it during warranty. Opening the bottom cap might void the warranty. You can do a full power cut off by holding the power button down for 8s like in computers or laptops.
Hi guys plz see this http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/reviews/item/12149_Nokia_N8_part_1_hardware_and_m.php it is more balanced review. Congrats wheez on ur N8 i just wonder how old r u.
The Nokia N8 GPU is a Broadcom 2727 GPU capable of processing 32 million trianlges/sec. This is much faster than the Galaxy S integrated GPU (ARM Cortex/ Hummingbird architecture) which processes 22 million triangles/ sec and Snapdragon at 10 million triangles/sec. So you can see the N8 is packing a lot of graphics punch!
jael, 02 Oct 2010hi wheeze im gonna ask some question to ur n8,

Indeed. Cnet and techradar reviews are all but good/professional/unbiased.
For those people that have just only read the reviews only on sites that have put down the N8, then take a look at this site on the net, themobileblog. Just google it. There are some really good videos and differen aspects of the phone, from video clarity to even connecting your phone to a TV and using a bluetooth mouse and keyboard to connect it with the phone while still being connected to the TV. It was amaizing!! Especially when he opened he browser and started browsing the net on the TV. The the other stuff that people are also asking about, such as an outdated app store is also reviewed. N8 features the new version of the store. Take a look. I have viewed the so called wonderfull other os app stores. This is right up there with the best. Easy to use and user friendly too. Video and picture quality was tops on this phones video review too. No laggyness and the reviews answer most of our questions.
You guys have to check this site out if you want honest opinions, not one sided ones and comparisons to others os's. This phone is unique in its own right.
injoy, 02 Oct 2010it is not really up to the CPU, but merely depends on OS. i would say if Nokia switches its OS... moreNo thanks. Android is decent, but it still has many baby problems. It will be a long time till Ill take an android phone. Currently Im finding Symbian just about perfect for myself, and im writing this from my N8 ;)
scotty, 01 Oct 2010it dosent say if this phone has a 1ghz cpu in it, like the samsung wave and galaxity, if i kno... moreit is not really up to the CPU, but merely depends on OS. i would say if Nokia switches its OS to android, it would be number one in market. infact i was thinking n97 hardware + android = good mixture
I'm one of those people that knows a good product review when I see one...
From what I read in the past hour you can trow cnet, techradar, engadget(just to name a few) in the bin. I'm waiting for mobile-review and gsmarena for a more objective opinion...
The hype is living up to its nature(for now)! :) N8 will dominate the market! (ps-have you seen that digital zoom during the video sample over at AAS? NICE!)
