hayato, 24 Sep 2010The game optimization is indeed the problem, IMO.
My nokia 5630 running 600mhz for example,... moreOwned a psp, loved it, sold it because I didn't play on it
Owned a second psp, loved it, sold it because I didn't play on it
Own a iPhone 3GS, love the games, never play them...
goes without saying that I don't give a rats ass about gaming on a cell phone, it just has to work smoothly
by the way I really don't understand why Nokia optimised the album coverflow this much. Okay it looks perfect, but imagine if they would have put this amount of work in the transitions of portrait to landscape, of the swiping of the home screens
After desperately wanting to buy the N8 for months, now I don't want it anymore. Good job Nokia!! this is 100% thanks to the delays. I'm all con iPhone (although I have one) but I'm starting to be pro Android because their 2.2 really looks interesting
Wheez, 24 Sep 2010E7 is cheaper than N8. Atleast preorders are currently in finnish nokia online storereally?! That makes sense. I'm always a bit confused since e7 announcement why it would cost more than n8. A qwerty can't be more expensive hardware than 12mp autofocus camera. Haha, now e7 makes complete sense than before. How i wish it would stay that way.
Nokia N86 already have Panorama mode. So may be Nokia N8 also have this.
Its available for preorder @$.95jt / USD470 incl.Stereo Bluetooth BH-905. But will be available in the end of October in Indonesia

My nokia 5630 running 600mhz for example, has a lot of lags on asphalt 4. However, need for speed undercover is really smooth, of course you can't compare the graphics with higher resolution phone, but that's not the point. There's hardly any visible frame-skipping in nfs undercover. Unlike in asphat 4 which looks like a 5fps cctv footage. One second you're car is there as if you teleported. It's ridiculous, and provided that i didn't cared about it before. Crash nitro cart is running smooth too.
It's all a matter of perfect compatibility, i guess. Asphalt 4 is actually not OS 9.3 optimized, it runs much better on other s60 3rd ed phone with OS 9.1 and 9.2, i just installed it to my 5630 whilst the 'not compatible' warning. And it works! Not perfectly though. And i'm quite sure that's the problem n8 is currently facing right now. If game makers can't find a way to fully utilize the n8's resources, if they can't make their games run efficiently, given the fact that they're used to 1ghz processors which gives them more room in hiding their bugs(just my humble presumption), we can't expect any smooth running/1ghz-feel games for the n8.
I can always choose a pc/game console to play games anyway, so i guess, i have learned to accept the fact that gaming is not a big deal in choosing a smartphone. It will always be better though, if the future holds something for n8's gaming improvement. And on other symbian 680mhz-running OS, like e7, as well.
Rose, 24 Sep 2010Got a call from (Nokia The connections), N8 Available after October 3rd. Bangalorer u sure is it gonna cum on oct 3?

Anonymous, 24 Sep 2010I think 680mhz of N8 can be easily overclocked to 900mhz if itz needed !Although that will probably kill the battery life, also in mobile phones that can really shorten the phones life.

Cmon Gsmarena you guys should take out the voting panel. Cuz its stupid, people are voting just to hate on a specific phone or brand that dont like. The only people that can use this is gsm team when reviewing the phone. Please remove this panel, it also confuses people to like other phones based on this stupid voting panel. Im not a nokia fanboi, i've use other brands!!
