Hi I have been a nokia User for 10 years and it does not disapoint me at all. But things started to change recently. I have been using N97 and it has no nice apps the graphics of the games are all java type and it keeps freezing. Not supporting apple or android here but stating an example of how Nokia Needs more apps rather than many good hardware but the Os and apps are lagging behind. Im sure many of you guys living in North america has seen Nokia shut its flagship stores and Many people are turning to Android and Apple. Take Motorola for example the phone it has last time are mostly not good in design software and apps but Motorola is smart to use android and create Droid devices which is nice in design Hardware and software. I do wish to see Nokia Revival in the handset market. No matter what im buying the N8 as soon as its out The 12 megapixel camera and HD recording are the best no phone can match the quality of nokia camera yet
mateen, 14 Sep 2010Dont buy any nokia symbian OPERATING SYSTEM,it's a waste OS to buy now a days ANDROID market i... moreRead the specs carefully then u ll know why the price is higher than 18k ! It offers great features for itz price !
Symbian is the most popular and mature os and symbian^3 is an open source,u cant claim it as waste before using it ! If u dont know anything then better u stop posting here !
[deleted post]This phone is nt as fast as iphone or galaxy but it is fastest symbian phone! Cant u see 12mp,xenon,hdmi,gorilla glass,al casing,usb otg,tv receiver,dolby digital...u need to do some research b4 posting n claiming anythng! Why would any1 pay too much for iphn if it has only b8r screen,touch,application,ui ? Also some people dont want galaxy bcoz it lacks a simple flash and cheap build quality ! So overall N8 is very well balanced phone and also it wont cost too much so no wonder if many people will choose it over iphn n galaxy :p
Dont buy any nokia symbian OPERATING SYSTEM,it's a waste OS to buy now a days ANDROID market is going then why you buy this SYMBIAN os phone if it's price is higher than 18k then buy HTC DESIRE or LEGEND they are super amoled screens and comes with 2.1 ANDROID OS can upgrade to 2.2 also.
me prefer symbian^3 UI over android UI. symbian UI more user friendly and easy to use
Its 5.45am uk time and bbc news 24 has just done a mini report and Nokia need the c9 and n8 to succed to keep up the competition.Thats from a main news channel yet the c9 seems as this time still a rumour..?????????????????
[deleted post]Would you call me backward to my face,,i buy what i like and would not ever buy anything apple..Android is just allover the place and eats battery its a mess.I love nokia/symbian have done since 2003 and like it,you cant take it upon yourself to change peole so piss off back to some other forum..
[deleted post]i really think your comment is just not even worth commenting on.
This device could turn out to be one of the great devices of the year.
It also can turn out to be total lemon.
But the thing is, it has to be judged on its own merits. And that will be up to each individual user.
Comparing it to any other device is useless and meaningless
MB, 14 Sep 2010I'm of the school that says performance is not measured on a spec sheet.
It's measured in r... moreI Agree 100% with you. I had the Samsung Vibrant for about 2 days before I sold it.
I have watched a million reviews on this phone and the performance seems superb. I think everyone's really hyped to get there hands on this phone especially me. I am going to wait for actual hands on video reviews of the N8 before I purchase one because I don't want another N97 situation happening to me!
We'll see what this phone is really about in 2 and a half weeks!
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2010I aslo dont like sam phs.but i m talking abt technologyI'm of the school that says performance is not measured on a spec sheet.
It's measured in real life.
I had a Samsung Vibrant. One of your celebrated Galaxy Phones. Great Specs on paper. Not so great performance in real life in my opinion. Buggy, laggy and totally overhyped.
I traded it back two weeks after I had it.
Don't TELL me what a device can do. PROVE what it can do.
It's all about the individual user experience and NOT about the technology that's written on a piece of paper.
