but rom, ram and processor cud be better.
I mean 512 MB RAM, 1 or 2 GB ROM and ARM 1GHz processor.
super amoled instead of amoled wud be great (thanks God its not resistive :)
love everything else though.
Not sure if symbian 3 will play the magic until its mature and think of it if the phone is hanged due to this, you can not just open the rear to pull the battery which sounds horrible (Nokia, are u gonna make symbian 3 really bug free?)
Gorilla glass is good and i wish this is not like other brands offering 30 times stronger than plastic glass and still scratched and broken easily.
all type of connectivity (IR is kinda obsolete in phones so doesn't count) v3.0 blutooth and especially USB On-the-go support is kool.
Camera: simply the best and good part is its with 1/1.83'' sensor and xenon which i love :>
FM transmitter+ HDMI + Anodized aluminum casing and guys much more make this phone a great deal.
ITS VALUE FOR MONEY.
Ahmm btw i wud wait for a better processor+rom+ram
Luke, 03 Sep 2010Will u cop on...yeh big freakin deal the iphone is good for what it is and im not an iphone ha... more15 years? It's lacking another 15 years!

the FACTs, 03 Sep 2010yess i totally agree with u symbian is dieing so that pretty much cover that if symbian dies t... moreWill u cop on...yeh big freakin deal the iphone is good for what it is and im not an iphone hater i like the iphone but is just a baby compared to N8...its completely obvious that the N8 is better....just think of it this way....nokia has been manufacturing mobile phones for over 15 years way before apple even dreamed of making a mobile phone....i understand why there is such a long wait for the N8 Because Nokia want it to be perfect....sure they have had failures in the past (N97,N96). but at least there phones dont have obvious faults ON THE DAY THEY ARE RELEASED! (Iphone4)....even if you use the simple commpare tool on this site and see both phones side by side, you'll see the N8 wipes the Floor with Iphone 4...deal with it.i cant wait to get my N8 cause im gonna do an indepth review and post it here...and your gonna be laughed at. peace out N8 Lovers!
Can nokia improve battary of this handset. Please tell me is this battary has great backup
All the Apple an Samsung fans are now worried about the N8,so keep of the N8 or Wave good bye to phone an go an watch the Corrs,an you know this mobile will be better than yours
[deleted post]Just a heads up matt, it's not the "real" AMANITA who posts here, somewhy this guy is impersonating..
Good God pleaaaaase all of you iPhone and Samsung fans stop spoiling our N8 page here and go to your own pages.
We all agree that the iPhone is best at what it's designed for. We also agree that the N8 is best at what it's designed for.
The iPhone is really good at looking slick with a superbly smooth and responsive interface. It has loads of apps that are really fun look very very nice. This is why it's so popular, it's the IDEAL show off device for all of your friends. Its a fun phone and at the same time a fantastic audio player and although it's soo expensive here in Belgium (750 euros for 32GB, thats 960 freakin' dollars! or 830 DOLLARS for the 16GB) it still has loads of succes with al the people who are willing to spend this amount of mony on a device that gives them everything THEY want, and that's a lot of people. Of course the nice white Apple symbol has its status, making it even more wanted.
But then there is another public for the N8. The people who are getting the N8 are looking for the best SMARTPHONE around. This means a fully functioning OS offering an experience as close as possible to the experience you have on a computer. This is undoubtedly the N8 simply because it can do so much. All of the iPhone fans do not understand this because everything the N8 has more to offer, they don't want/need. And I understand this fully. I had a 5800 before my iPhone 3GS and surely, the iPhone 3GS is the phone I had the longest in my whole life (14 months!!! and normally i change phone EVERY 6 months since I was 14, its a routine) by now I'm completely bored with it. Its so fun to play with and to show of. It absolutely has qualities the N8 will never have but at one point, I just stopped caring because it offered my so many limitations, things I CAN do on my 5800. This is why I want to go back to Symbian, offering me once again the most computerlike features EVER found on a smartphone. It doesn't always look like the iPhone, and it isn't always as snappy or as smooth as the iPhone but I don't care, just like the iPhone fans don't care about the computerlike experience, they just want what the iPhone has to offer, it's like candy for a baby for them, just like the N8 is candy like a baby for us Nokia fanboys ;-)
can't we just all agree on this please, and if not, just stay away from this page. Sure I want to reach the 5.000.000 daily interests but I don't want it to be because of Nokia bashers
to all those who think N8 is underpowered, use this logic.
Lotus exige (only 1.8l engine) vs mercedes Hummer H1 (6.0l engine), lotus will lap faster than humvee why?koz its lighter
same logic for symbian vs other OS's
so for symbian MHz and Mb are Relative!
mohd, 03 Sep 2010great phone but
-low capacityRemember that the Mhz aint everything, since the N8 has a GPU thus hardware 3D acceleration that takes alot of strain off the CPU.
Also the Symbian is quite abit lighter than Android, for example.
Wheez, 03 Sep 2010Few relatively new videos that show pretty up to date software and generally speaking showing ... moreLooking real good, somewhy though the video and picture editor seems laggy, which seems that the "application" have been coded badly, cos the phone doesnt seem to lag anywhere else but in those two things.
I'd somewhat understand it if you were like mid-editing a video, but you can clearly see the lower FPS when he opens the video editor and the menu comes out abit laggy, same with the pic editor.
But apart from that, real smooth.
The Nokia N8 has a USB OTG (On-The-Go) which means that you can connect pendrives or small hardrives via the microUSB-USB cable to the Phone. Here is a video in which a Pen Drive is connected to the phone and also another phone a Nokia C5 and both show up as Mass Storage within the FileManager . Pretty Cool eh ?
n8 awesome going to buy
Few relatively new videos that show pretty up to date software and generally speaking showing the N8 & Symbian^3.
[deleted post]LOL obviously your a apple fanboy/fangirl! haha but yeah i gotta agree though the IT IS the BEST phone...at dropping calls LOL! hahahahhaahaha i'm currently using iPhone 3GS and Nokia N97 and seriously i'd choose N97 any day it's 1000x more reliable in terms of battery life and built quality although it's made of plastic and fyi i'm not a fanboy of any brands unlike you i'm just stating the facts only thing good about iPhone is the ui that's it don't see anything special and anything REALLY useful

Bada OS is KING!That once again is totally a matter of an opinion. Not to mention this page is NOT about iPhone 4 or Samsungs.
It's about the Nokia N8, please discuss that elsewhere.
