[deleted post]Sorry to hear that your screen is like this. You can solve the problem only by changing it. Why don't you go to Nokia to do it for you? Will be for free if it's in warranty. Also, those circles are not a hardware issue. All N8 users will come across this... and the camera glass it's to blame. i have this "problem" when i take pictures with flash to, But after i do some cleaning they go away, or move:)). Xeon flash is very powerful module. But "unfortunately", unprotected camera glass get's dirty very quick, and just a small speck of dust can cause some reflections with this flash. So that is no hardware related problem. It is just, let's say, a permanent n8 bug. Cause doesn't have camera glass protections. But i'm ok. Before all pictures with flash, i clean it and never put it in my pocket until i finish the photo-shooting:)).
And for you all! A HAPPY NEW YEAR AND A GREAT 1 January... until latter:P.
Carol , 28 Dec 2012You had some bad luck. The xirxles in picturs can be solved by cleaning good the camera glass.... morethanks for the reply, I observe it might be hardware issue because taking pics without flash wont have those stupid circles but sometimes appear when xenon flashes... camera less is so clean. what annoys me most is the screen purple tint, videos on my former symbian (Nokia 5230) looks good than this shitty amoled n8

ankit, 27 Dec 2012Actually I used my n8 for almost 19-20 months. I was hoping some good updates from nokia till ... moreYou say truth ankit but nokia seem to be foolish as they abandoned symbian and go for windows mobile instead of android.
Hey guys ..n8 just owsum ...its good for me...nice camera and long battery life its merits never be stopped with single words....iam proud to be used this phone...
NOKIA N8 is a Perfect Choice, I got It Last Summer. After 15 Months Just Like The Day It Bought, It Was A Masterpiece.
Actually I used my n8 for almost 19-20 months. I was hoping some good updates from nokia till last month. But nokia gone out of market. No software update, the latest belle refresh was also not good. Poor ram, poor interface, poor battery, poor processor, only camera was excellent till now, its better than other smartphone in the market.
So finally I bought samsung galaxy note2. Its just awesome phone.
I think nokia should have concentrated on developing symbian. Like android they are updating their firmware in series with lots of new features. This way nokia would have developed symbian..
Wake up nokia...

Anonymous, 26 Dec 2012hey n8, without your 12 MB camera and xenon flash you are not a smartphone compared to any app... moreWell said. Not even a 1/10th smartphones in samsung have 12 MP autofocus camera with xenon flash. But battery backup should be more. But I can adjust. I love this phone more than a girl !!!.
I also have Nokia N79, Nokia 5320 expressmusic and Nokia 1280. All the phones are superhit models. Thats why I buy new phones over old models without selling those (old models).
hey n8, without your 12 MB camera and xenon flash you are not a smartphone compared to any apple or android device
