There really seems to be some quite major difference between ie. galaxy s and iphone 4 GPUs and that of the N8. Im not really a tech geek so i dont really know the terms, but seems that I was using the word dedicated wrong, it might be that the word I was looking for was 3D Hardware acceleration as the difference to other phones

iphone 4: arm cortex a8 + Supervr sgx 535
... moreAs far as I know, they are integrated SoC GPUs, not dedicated, wont bet my head on it though, could be wrong.
However, then the benchmarks are pretty weird, how come the N8 with clearly lesser specs would be that even ;) So either N8s GPU is a fair bit more powerful or then the devices dont take full use out of it.
As for game optimization, lets think that N8 would have a more powerful GPU while others had better CPU and lesser GPU, maybe the game is optimized wrong to emphasize on the CPU instead of the GPU that would be needed on the N8s case.
The N8 and iPhone 4 can actually use their GPUs to render the UI, Android can't use the GPU to rendering the UI at least not for now.
Either way, I could be wrong about the dedicated GPUs, but the N8s GPU obviously seems more powerful, then.

Because, NOT have real POWER phone today!Funny, if there would be more Nokia haters than lovers considering that Nokia still has majority in smartphone marketshare and phones like 5800 were sold dozens of millions.

Now i understand why nokia fans believe n8 games... moreThat's most liekly about Asphalt 5 being badly optiimized for the N8, N8 is like the only device that game is on that has a DEDICATED GPU. Unless it takes full use of that, itäs not gonna run smoothly. NFS:Shift runs alot better, for example.
N8 is alot more high end than many of it's competitors, both in build quality, hardware (although they've gone for a balanced approach) and features. As the benchmarks show, the N8 is very even with other famous devices, such as Galaxy S or iPhone 4, while having like triple the features compared to the iphone 4 for example and for a cheaper price.
Also a good thing to consider is that super AMOLEDs are not available for anyone but Samsung atm it seems, cos they manufacture them themselves (Thus Nokia making CBD).
Yes, the N8 has a slower CPU than other big names, but the big names do not have dedicated GPUs and thats what makes the devices just as high end. Sure, a 1ghz CPU will win 680mhz + GPU in loading times in games for example, but properly optimized the 680 Mhz + dedicated GPU should be better in actually running the games.
The game can only run as well as it's been optimized for the device.
isabel phillippines, 24 Sep 2010 confirmed the priced of n8 in the phillippines is 47,850php.. Nokia Center Phillippines S... moreU got the wrong info,it cant cost more than iphone ! Near about 450euro
The price in India is around RS 46000/- which is really very expensive. Better we can buy a dedicated digital Camera for around 6-7k and good ipod around 6-7k with nice head phone around 4-5k and one good phone, obviously not n8.
for all nokia haters.go to www.glbenchmark.com and then camper your device with n8 and then talk to nokia lovers.
Now i understand why nokia fans believe n8 games are smooth. This game lags so much and the nokia staff guy says: very smooth!
Really Nokia, really?
Nokia makes gaming look very bad on phones and people think this is great performance.
confirmed the priced of n8 in the phillippines is 47,850php.. Nokia Center Phillippines SM MEGAMALL.. The unit will arrived last week of september. start selling 2nd week of october. very expensive than iphone and galaxy. goodbye nokia. i will not bye this phone overpriced... n8 is low-end phone. so much better i go to buy high end phone than n8 low-end phone.
