To Carol :
Under rare / very rare usage (10 minutes of outgoing call and 20 minutes of Nimbuzz online in GPRS (not 3G) connection and 20 to 30 SMS of 160 characters each, watched four 720p songs and listened to 15 min MP3 using headset volume at 8 to 10 out of 20), my mobile's battery charge is 59% remaining !!!. Last charged on 24-02-2013 at 10:31 PM Indian time. Now 08:24 AM Indian time on 27-02-2013 !!!. Is it normal?.
But one thing. When the nokia battery monitor shows 19%, the battery quickly drains to 8 or 4% just for using 2 min voice call or 5 SMS or within 6 hours when kept idle in silent mode in such a case.
When I keep it idle only I can see the 10% remaining or else not. Because of this I am unable to charge the battery at 10%. I bought this mobile as new in September 2012 last week.
Carol, what to do in this regard?.
I have tested all these in strong coverage area only.

excellent phone iv had for 2yrs not a problem found due to upgrade but stilll keeping n8 as main phone :)
The Nokia N8,is infact the flagship of the Nokia brand of Handset,the FM transmitter is superb, the Microsoft office 2010 that enable u to type and edit your document save it directly to your external disk (Flash drive etc) via the supplied cables,the HDMI cable that enables you to watch your video directly on your LCD Plasma or LED, and the memory is large enough to accommodate long hour movies for ur entertainment. Thank you Nokia am enjoy the Handset to the fullest Best handset of our generation;

phenomenal device and i appreciate Nokia for innovating this DEVICE N8...
i love this phone,,,, i will not change it to any other phone... i bought a galaxy phone but i still keep this one coz its one of the best nokia phone, im using it for almost one and half year and i havent experience any problem :)
Carol, 25 Feb 2013Yes, a dual-core Symbian with a 4 inch amoled screen. Not more then 4(i don't like phablets). ... moreWell maybe because Nokia is concentrating on WP8 now, they will make money with some great devices. Once they're back in business again, let them re-invent a new line up of Symbian phones! that would be awesome, and I'm sure Nokia will get back their customers they lost and who for an Android phone. The market needs to give people a choice in OS and even though Symbian will not be the biggest OS anymore, a lot people will still prefer it.
Aadrian, 23 Feb 2013It's a great phone. If Nokia would make a new N8 with HD screen, aluminium body, wireless char... moreYes, a dual-core Symbian with a 4 inch amoled screen. Not more then 4(i don't like phablets). Will be super for us:D. But the mass is washed away from symbian, the bad publicity of symbian will never convince them to buy. And Nokia needs money to survive. That is why they ditched our beloved system. Cause wasn't bought by the mass. In Germany, it is me against the world. So to say, they are all with android or iphone. Iphone is like 40% and android is like 30%. Then comes Nokia, but not Symbian. Now, slowly Nokia started to make some roots in here with windows. But you cannot find a Symbian device anymore. Even online is hard to find a 603 or 701 or n8. yes, even the mighty N8 started to fade from online stores. Also 808 slowly disappears fades. I sure hope i can get my hands on one before becomes an expensive rarity.
Sam, 22 Feb 2013hi carol.... i updated social bt still that application doesnt uninstalls.. n second thing is ... moreafter the updates shold be more files to delete from social, will be facebook and tweeter to, and some other things i don't remember anymore. I always delete them after update. So should work 100%. As for topapps i don't know, is that an app or what? If it's an app, i don't know about it, so i cannot help you with that sory. Maybe yo have a branded firmware?
It's a great phone. If Nokia would make a new N8 with HD screen, aluminium body, wireless charging and a pureview camera, it would be a hit. I'm sure about that! Something like a Nokia N10...
dolla, 23 Feb 2013great phone,can i change the n8 battery because mine is not lasting a dayu can. just go to youtube and type smth. "battery change nokia n8".
