Nokia makes phones for geeks ie user interface is unimportant but capability is important. Android/iphone make phones for general user. They keep user interface in mind. Eg they dont mind having 5 mp camera instead 12 mp as long as users experince is good. For them user experience is important than capability. And since general users are outnumber geeks heavily, nokia lags behind androids & iphones & samsungs. Take example of n900 which was a failure as it was made for geeks. Lets see how n8 fares
The N8 is the best-looking smartphone I've seen (especially in blue or orange). The 12-Megapixel camera (with dual Xenon flash!), totally radioed-up -- including FM transmitter and Flash support really make it the all-in-one device I've been waiting for...for years. No, it's not Android. Which, to me, means you're not supplying your user data to Google (seems a bit Orwellian to me, anyway). Complain about Symbian all you want; but capabilities will always trump font style, icons, menus or any of the cosmetic complaints that I hear about Symbian.
I suggest that nokia include instructional manual written in kindergarten language.
I've heard/read lots of complaints from people who don't know how to manage a smartphone. It sucks.
phones fan, 08 Aug 2010sorry but I don't agree with you ,my samsung wave video light is capable of giving excellent v... moreDude, thats the whitest lie i've heard this month. Do you know what a meter is? Unless you'r gonna tell me your waves flash is powered by an external cell, i put it to you that at 2m, what you get is a horrible video filled with red green blue artifacts(if the flash were a good one) while at 5m, its completely useless. If your waves flash was that good, samsung would have ventured into the street lightening market. Not even dual led can give you a good video at 5m.
RONALD, 08 Aug 2010what's the benifit of edge class 33 where 3g is therekeep in mind that 3g is still not universally available. even though 4g networks are starting to roll out. for some situations this 2G class 33 may be of some help.
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2010i want to pre-order this phone but just wanna know if compatible to skype voice and video call... moreskype voice works on symbian phones. if the current version will not be working on S^3 for some reason, i have no doubts it will be updated to work in short order.
native skype software has no video calling for symbian. until recently skype video calls could be placed via fring, but skype recently shutdown fring's access to the network due to some conflict of interests. not sure if this is temporary or not.
i want to pre-order this phone but just wanna know if compatible to skype voice and video calling as well. thanks
That youtube vid demonstrating the browser looks ok. Finally it looks like they got the browser right. Still a bit slow, but maybe because of the flash. At least it looks like you can actually use the browser now though.
leanne, 09 Aug 2010is nokia n8 will be launch in canada? and when?Given that all carriers are supporting 3G, it it will come faster than in the past when only Rogers had compatible network.
Wind will probably be one of the first operators since it is compatible with their 1700 MHz network and will occupy high end offering slot.
Cindy, 08 Aug 2010The 'USB on the go' is a great feature to have, but really, who is going to plug in their 500g... moreYou have a problem with icons. Icons have nothing to do with OS. Symbian OS has nothing to do with it. The same icons can be reused in in any OS, even Meego, or iOS :)
Nokia N8 browser demo (Flash + YouTube)
To every one:
I saw Nokia N8 official videos that made by nokia and saw that it is extremely fast with nice effects.
This phone don't need more speed.
Thank you all.
RONALD, 08 Aug 2010what's the benifit of edge class 33 where 3g is there3G *(very high mobile internet speeds) uses much more battery power in any phone when using the internet. But when using GSM or EDGE it uses little battery power as the speed is limited. So Class 33 (maybe) will use little battery and provide higher speed.
Why in the world do all these samsung fanboys wanna compare their wave to the N8 (a phone that hasn't hit the market yet). Think they feel so insecure and wants to proclaim that wave is the best (though the truth is far from different) so that they can feel good about themselves for having purchased a buggy phone that doesn't even do what basic smartphones are suppose to do.
The thing about majority of Nokia users is that they know what they have is the best and doesn't have to shout around to let themselves be heard. When you know that you have the power at your hands you don't show it to anyone. It's that simple. I have used a handfull of samsung phones myself and I can tell you nothing even comes close to what Nokia offers. The user experience is that much refined and the rest are pretty much self explanatory. This being the main reason why Nokia is still the preferred mobile of choice for majority of users especially in booming markets like India.
Crunk, 08 Aug 2010I really dont think a video light affects the video being taken to such a large extent. Unless... moresorry but I don't agree with you ,my samsung wave video light is capable of giving excellent video quality when you are at 2m distance from the object and good video quality at 5m distance from the object in a "complete dark condition".
I've just tried that now ;)
This is the best video I've seen of the N8 working so far (with pre production software lets not forget) and its def god enough for me. Even if does have the checkboard affect in the web browser when zooming out -so what the checkboard goes after a mini second
