For those of you who are pre-ordering this phone or getting it as soon as it's releaaed, I hope you will be kind and come back her and tell everyone your impressions and thoughts on using it.
I'm really interested in this device, but I don't want to buy it sight-unseen. I'd love to read some reviews from ACTUAL users. Not website reviews from so-called experts.
I'm inyerested in how this device performs in real life!
there is an important information for all of you..
i don"t think that people from nokia have actually discussed the problems that they are facing with nokia n8..
my uncle is on higher post at Nokia India Head Office
which is in SP Infocity,
Industrial Plot no. 243
Udyog Vihar, Phase 1,
i don"t wana disclose his name out here..
so today i have got the hands on nokia n8..
so lemme share my experience with u..
things which i liked the most..
screen display is really impressive..
has velvet touch..
phone ui is pretty fast when compared with previous nokia phones..
camera is something which i should say unbeatable..
looks pretty handy and attractive..
scrolling and other features are excellent..
please don"t compare its speed or ui to android or iphone os..it doesnt lag anywhere but cant be compared to other os..
casing is smthing for which we all should appreciate nokia..no need to put in covers as dey are scratch-less..data transfer speed is pretty fast..
things which are hided by nokia..
for users in india (will not get all colours)
only black and silver are available till now..
hopefully green will be available too..
but orange and blue will not be available..
this device doesnt support divx so will not play avi format..will play those videos only thru third part applications..
will get only a basic kit..
no bluetooth headphones..
european countries will get those..
if u try to change sim card while phone is on,
will not show network signals for the inserted one..
if u put the one which was in earlier will detect..
dis is the main reason for delay..
if u want to use different carrier u will have to reset ur phone..and dats the only option..
it can detect portable hard disks upto 500 gb and
usb sticks upto 16gb(not more den dat) when using usb on the go support..
colours are not dat vibrant as was in samsung i8910 omnia hd..
doesnt support live wallpapers..
spb mobile shell doesnt work on symbian 3..
there are so many applications dat doesnt work on this platform..
themes of s60 v5 can be installed but will show up as they usually show up in s60 v5 versions(so not of use as doesnt look nice)..
new homescreen is something which u will like and there are certain new features(like pinch to zoom) which will make u feel good but if somebody has used omnia hd with hyperx vx roms..for those guys i feel pity as we have seen most of the features in andy"s roms..anyways at last nokia has put a step forward towards evolution not revolution..
im definitely gonna buy this phone as soon as it steps in the market..
for guys who dont wana buy this media monster and wants to wait till nokia n9 comes in,
guys who love clicking pix should go for this phone as we dnt know wheather nokia will ever be able to produce any phone with such a lovely camera..
for me its a usefull phone, as i think of present..
y to wait wen we r not sure wts gonna come in future..
ui will be better for sure in future phones but the kinda hardware it has or it supports may not be available in future nokia phones..
somebody has truly said: hit the rod when its hot..
You don't know what you are talking about... I pre-ordered the N8 in USA..got the email confirmation from Nokia.
This is how all phones should be made! A worldwide phone usable everywhere. Being from the states, I can use this phone to its fullest advantage on either T-Mobile or AT&T. It will be ME who decides how I use my phone and not the carrier.
Nokia gets a bad rap in the states and the reason is that they don't play ball the way the carriers want them to. They don't load their phones with crapware. They don't skin it death. They don't take away features that the carriers don't want their customers to have because they can't make money off it.
Samsung, HTC etc.... don't have the guts to stand up to the American Carriers. You get what the carriers want you to have.
You can talk about your iphone, android, bada BLAH...BLAH...BLAH
Nokia Devices give you freedom!
Ajay, 29 Aug 2010Where in India has pre - order started, if it has started that is ?i.asked.nokia.dealer.he.said.there.will.be.no.pre-order.....its.getting.launched.mid.sept...by.15
I bought X6 8GB last week and its works fine but I guess I'm gonna regreat not to buy N8. Will see.
If anyone looking for free pdf reader for S60 V5 mobiles, search "alternatedjvu". It works very well in my X6.
As smooth as Creamrola Rice is the Nokia N8. At last S^3 brings single clicks touch controls when navigating through the Menu. So it's much quicker to find & open applications over S60 5th Edition.
r u in any other planet??
agreed that iPhone UI is better that symbian,
touchscreen and ease of use is its greatest advantage ;).
But saying Bada UI is better than symbian UI is bit ridiculous.
That too you are commenting that you used this phone for a year ;)
Try grounding your feet to earth.
And for heavens sake dont comment anything if you had not used
Here a nice app for the N8 allowing u to edit videos and pictures
[deleted post]Who cares what Murtazin has to say. He raved about the Samsung Vibrant which I own and can tell you is the biggest piece of crapola out there.
[deleted post]Even Im from New Delhi. Desperately waiting for it! Will be out by mid of September! Maximum 3 more weeks to go, well I hope so! *fingers crossed*
The Nokia N8 release date was pushed to Q3 2010 and the device will become the first with Symbian ^3. Although we had high hopes about the OS, the Finnish-based company doesn’t seem to understand that Symbian is not on our tastes anymore. Sure, it’s functional, but the UI is not at the same level as Android, iPhone, or not even Samsung’s Bada OS. Personally, I believe that Maemo 5 UI is better than on Symbian ^3.
Nokia is going down and this is happening because the company cannot drop Symbian apps. It’s a profitable business as Symbian users download millions of apps daily. Murtazin says that Symbian ^3 is not as good as Android or iPhone, but this wouldn’t be enough as Nokia has to come up with something revolutionary in order to catch up with Apple, Google and Microsoft.
The chief limiting factor of the N8 is its operating system. Symbian^3 offers very little new functionality. Even worse, most of the new functionality is simply stuff that is already available on other platforms.
Nokia N8 will not ship until the third quarter of this year. Nokia still has some time to refine the user experience. However, that may not be sufficient to save yet another possibly doomed Nokia handset.
Nokia was once my favourite mobile phone choice, but due to their several last high-end failures, I have now moved away from Nokia to others. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have any killer feature that can make it stand out from the crowd.
According to me, it could be another disappointment for Nokia fans. It’s got 12 megapixels camera, which take great photos – a bit better than the Sony Ericsson Satio, but what’s most disappointing is the new Symbian^3 OS.
[deleted post]Symbian isn't getting worse, its the Android which is growing faster. And its true, kinda working on me as well. Want to get an Android phone. Galaxy would have been my perfect choice only if it had a 12 MP camera with Xenon and better GPU and maybe flash lite 4 and better looking from back side. Too bad neither of them (n8 or galaxy) is THE perfect one! =/
Daily hits from 70,000 have gone down to 30,000. People are staring to lose interest and patience. So Am I =/
this phone have new symbian ^3 os,and its very good,fast,reliable..
Its comes with lots of new features,now u can connect your flashdrive directly to your phone,just like a pc.camera is good.full aluminium body.only bad thing is u cant remove the battery like iphone,thats why simslot and memorycard slot is out of the phone.overall phone is good and reliable
its a good phone but will be very expensive to buy i will wait till the price will down
