Dwane, 16 Sep 2010Well this is mainly what I said.
Great phone and great features and I am going to get one r... more"but do you think the average user of this phone will actually use the features that you and myself brag about?
Will you actually carry a cable with you everywhere so you can actually take advantage of the USB 'on the go' or HDMI out at the time you need to without planning to?"
Its funny always talk about those, because most of people dont do anything with those. for me i dont want to always carry cables if i should need them.
I think when you really need those then they are at home and not there where you need them.
wireless things are future, im very interesting about wp7 lg phone can stream pics and videos to tv without cable, thats looks/sounds great! new htc desire HD having that too
FUTURE IS WIRELESS!
i need next device2b same features expet for 1gb rom 1gb ram wvga at least 1500 battry at least 1gb processor at least and full flash support plus full video formats support.
phones fan, 16 Sep 2010the 50 hrs of music play back are in the offline mode.
the broadcom gpu produces 32M triangle... moreThe 90 Mio Triangles per s are CPU+GpU (galaxy s) !!!
The N8s GPU only is 32 Mio. triangles per s !
Well this is mainly what I said.
Great phone and great features and I am going to get one regardless.
I just wanted to hear your thoughts on these points
Its not a gamers phone (compared to say the iphone) as people getting this phone are probably not hardcore gamers, but do you think the average user of this phone will actually use the features that you and myself brag about?
Will you actually carry a cable with you everywhere so you can actually take advantage of the USB 'on the go' or HDMI out at the time you need to without planning to?
Do you really need 12mp camera over a 5mp camera? I think most people just look at the their pictures just on the phone or maybe on a pc where they would hardly tell the difference.
Are you gonna notice the speed difference of bluetooth 3 over 2.1? especially as you need to connect to another bt3 device to get that speed
the FM transmitter, free sat nav and great build quality are probably the gonna be the most noticed difference to most peoples upgrade don't you think?
These are all questions I get from my friends who think I'm stupid waiting so long for this phone when other good phones are already out so wanted pass some of these opinions to the forum so I can be reassured that i'm not giving this phone too much credit
I asked NPD here in Hyderabad, India, he said me that N8 launch has been delayed by 3 weeks, when i asked him more, he told me that he got this info directly from Nokia base office in Delhi.
Wheez, 16 Sep 2010You are forgetting the dedicated GPU that your phone, whatever you are comparing the N8 to, la... moreIt would be a very balanced phone if it was not from Symbian of course.
And by the way... this was supposed to be Nokia's top of the line. They failed yet again to enter the top phone market.
Let's just hope they finish their Meego, it will maybe bring them back in the smartphone market.
[deleted post]You are forgetting the dedicated GPU that your phone, whatever you are comparing the N8 to, lacks.
Also, what's poor about the screen? Super AMOLEDs arnt supplied to anyone but Samsung cos they manufacture them, so that's not an option.
Resolution could be bigger, but personally I think it fits the 3,5" screen very well, and it would even look off it was bigger reso. If 3½" makes a screen poor, why not get a 50" TV right away, it's surely better than ur 4" or whatever ur device has.
Get real, get ur facts straight. This phone is probably the best balanced phone out there.
Ansh, 16 Sep 2010thought samsung wave to be my phone for 4 yrs but now..on loading heavy web pages it shows mem... moreI hope ppl understand tat talking big is nt impt...but performing in real life is impt...wave is a nice fone but every fone has its limits...after being 1ghz its still has memory low...so I think Nokia did a smart thing by installing a best GPU in N8...u need to balance things in life....

Anonymous, 16 Sep 2010I was waiting for to buy N8 but release is delayed Again. http://www.slashgear.com/nokia-... moreYeah a lot of these reports have been popping up. But i don't think they are credible until nokia says so. And the official word from them is still a sept end release like the websites of US and UK say. So i'm just hoping for the best. And a nokia priority salesman told me just today that n8 will be releasing in india on monday. Don't know if it's true but the dummies have started appearing in shops
Hope Gsmarena can do a voting results on the Best Colour people would like the N8 in,as i seem to be stuck on the Colour i would my N8 in,as i have had Black an Silver mobiles before so might choose my N8 in Green or Blue,Green to me will stand out more an easy to see when its dark at Night time
Anonymous, 16 Sep 2010Only 680MHz ARM? Ohhhhhh nooooooooo!It's even underclocked, don't forget that this thing sports a dedicated GPU, that in normal use makes the phone equal to having 1Ghz processor alone.
In some things having only that 1ghz would've been better, in many things it probably ends up nicer having 680mhz and a GPU.
