In fact, the Nokia N8 has excellent battery life compared to its rivals. And about that comment on video light...:
"There is a red LED by the side of the xenon flash, itís used exclusively for auto focus assist. There is no separate LED for video usage.Some important points: The only way you are going to get sufficient illumination from LEDís over a usable distance available today would be if you had a dual LED. Single LED just is not going to provide any benefit, it would have been a tickbox solution and nothing more than that.We simply didnít have the space for the Dual LED as well as Xenon, the area around the camera is really packed!" As qouted by Damian Dinning. Hope this makes you think twice about buying a Nokia N8.
neha, 10 Aug 2010ok guys pls tell me. this phone is for 370 EUR and WAVE is for 400 EUR???????? Is it true???... moreSorry, not any more. If you read the news, you would know that the Nokia N8 is selling for much higher than that previous estimate. Check out the Nokia website for the pre-order price.

I agree n8 is a good phone, but they should have put a 1500 mah battery and wat abt a video recording light ?? Nokia should've thought abt that. As far as for me the dealbreaker could be the battery, and the video recording light.
ok guys pls tell me.
this phone is for 370 EUR and WAVE is for 400 EUR????????
Is it true???????????????pls confirm anyone if n8 is cheaper or costlier that wave.pls pls pls.
N8 does not look premium with those lipstick colors...y dont nokia just give some chrome metallic color or aluminum alloy body...And best feature is USB tethering and Camera....remaining all r there even in Omnia HD which came 1.5 years ago
efore I begin with the preview of the N8, here's a quick rundown of all the important features that the handset has:
12 Megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss 28mm wide-angle lens, xenon flash, mechanical shutter, variable aperture and 1/1.83" sensor
Anodized aluminum body
3.5", 640 x 360 pixel AMOLED display
16GB built-in memory (further expandable by 16GB through microSD cards)
HDMI-out with 5.1 channel Dolby Digital Plus surround sound audio
USB On-the-Go feature for connecting any portable USB memory device directly to the phone
High definition, 1280 x 720 video recording with dedicated microphone and stereo audio
Quint-band 3G connectivity; Wi-Fi 802.11n; Bluetooth 3.0
Symbian ^3 operating system
That does look like quite a formidable feature list. So now let us get on with the preview of the handset. (Note: The devices we used at the event were all prototypes and hence were not functioning perfectly. This is why we were also not allowed to take any camera samples from the device.)
Th progression & development of battery technology will always be slowed down because of the developments in low energy power switching circuitry electronics. Also how the consumer uses their device, it's hardware & the software to their advantage of using less energy will make the difference by not using things they don't need.
There is an eco system for R&D electronics engineers to integrate into their devices controls for software developers to allow modern technologies to switch into a very low power idle state mode when not used, so that it's basically switched off. BT30 does this but not enough. BT4.0 will conserve battery lie even more. Newer CPU's memory also do. The electronics circuitry itself also helps.
No matter how much I think of how much the electronics industry tries to put into the R&D development for lower energy devices - I still don't think they are doing enough or being serious enough to progress battery life. Alternative energy technologies are problem but always seem to keep slowly loosing sight & pace. More needs to be invested here in this sector of the industry I feel
i really dont know why nokia is so scared of having 1 ghz processors in its phone which hv become a benchmark in all up market phones nd that to they r so many advantages. they need to change to survive
When it comes to smart phones Apple's Iphone and Samsung's latest Galaxsi S are the two good smart phones in the market today. Nokia left far behind in Smart phone technology. Their sales and revenues are dipped. They still depending on Symbian OS. Poor Nokia.
Nokia is incorporating next gen. OS called MeeGo. A new platform developed by Novell for Nokia and Intel. Powered by Linux from Novell. Surely it is going to be a serious threat for Anroid and Apples I phone.
All Nokia future SMART mobiles are powered by MeeGo.
Kindly wait for it.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2010I have an idea! HTC and Apple should switch to Symbian 3 and later update to Symbian 4. They c... moreWin vista is better than Win 98 and Win Vista requires higher RAM and a processor, as it is advanced, more efficient and productive. We now require better CPU'S OR GPU'S to support the advanced OS and gaming platforms in the computing and mobile computing industries. Similarly Samsung and HTC require better processors to support their much more graphically advanced OS.
why some are promoting samsung wave here in n8 forum..samsung wave is a good phone but its BADA OS and even samsung itself not releasing further models in BADA os..so stop promoting wave ..people have their own choice including features..its just not only about super AMOLEd screen..and its only 3.3inch screen..so stop wasting time to tell N8 is ugly and buggy before even released..
