If this phone is out ill buy it, if symbian^4 out ill buy it, and when meego is out ill buy it to. i already have galaxy s and iphone4 and also wave and i also buy winpho 7 when its out.
n8 advantages-best camera,internet,hdmi,usb otg,fm transmitter,etc..disadvantage-battery 1200mah,screen resolusion is not as bood as galaxy,non-removable battery(nokia phones sometimez hang so much that in order to restart d phn v hv to remove d battery.bt here is no chance v cn do that.),ui is nt as gud as galaxy.
Nw galaxy s-advantage--best screen,ui,os,PROcessor speed etc.
Disadvantage-no flash support,low camera quality,al plastic body that cnt stand rough handling,n i thnk smsng has less number of customer care centres than nokia.
Niraj, 07 Aug 2010Actually there are lots of good applications available for symbian but there are some problems... moreI never faced any problem abt symbian applications ! Just go to peperonity or join frendz4m or google any appln. ! No need to sign just a lil h.a.ck can help! Also have all ngage games for free ! Many tricks,fonts can b changed! I hac.k.ed my N73 for the remote tower which has faster speed than my nearest tower !

Anonymous, 07 Aug 2010It really depends on how fluid s^3 is. If its like the n97 or from what I have seen on youtube... moreActually there are lots of good applications available for symbian but there are some problems.
1) you need to search them on web, some time it takes quite a long time
2) some applications are really good but not quite polished.
3) many are unsigned, so you may require to sign them first.
Btw some you tube videos give me sense that even x6 is more faster than N8. But it is clearly due to firmware. You can see in some videos N8 is fluid even while loading tons of pictures, applications.
Nokia n8 video recording with highest 60 FPS with total 1440 only

samsung wave with highest and blowing n8 with 1614 ! and with my WAVE it went upto 1660

Samsung wave is the clear winner in all acpects !! Only camera is good in n8 thats only for still pics. But video recording at 720p is same in both but in reviews i like Wave's HD recording more !! god bless outdated N8..
RONALD, 07 Aug 2010N8 is not perfect phone,it dose not have video light.Not led but red video light !

Symbian^1 has problems like some time touching the screen dont react, slow to process theme effect but when you switch off theme effects phone will become good fast and default web browser some time stops loading page..

If its like the n97 or from what I have seen on youtube then I wouldn't buy the n8 because ios and android are really much better, faster and more fluid.
Some features that I like on the n8 are ovi maps, aluminum casing, 12mp with flash (5mp is enough for me) and hdmi output. But if the OS is like on the n97 or if there aren't many apps then why should I buy it? Apps makes a phone really more phone and exciting to use and I don't really get that with symbian so far like I do with apple or android.
Symbian is a best os ever ! True multitasking ! Can convert applications using qt ! N8 is the perfect phone ! ;)
N8 is a very old news. Outdated processor, outdated RAM, outdated os. Only the camera for still picture is good. Nothing else. The video recording is poor. It can't even beat Wave for video recording.
So sad wave cant even support zip/rar ! Galaxy dont have a flash :D ! Truely out of this world :D

But some time these features really help a lot on your daily life. I guess your mp3 player only supports music files. But N8 supports plently of other features too. Just read my all comment at today..
Niraj, 07 Aug 2010You are wrong. Nexus one is developer's phone for Android and most of developers will utilize ... moreGalaxy S is far far better than N8. N8 has no stand in front of Galaxy S. Galaxy S beats N8 in daylight and in dark. Android is way better than Symbian anytime.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2010The n8 roughly does about 50m triangle/s. The galaxy S does about 60m/s and the nexus about 20... moreYou are wrong. Nexus one is developer's phone for Android and most of developers will utilize games according to it not Galaxy S. You are also wrong while saying Android utilizes games better. Android runs on a java virtual machine, so you can see most of android games are small on size and cant be comparable to iphone game.
And since you much care about processor speed, why dont dont you simply buy galaxy s. It is not possible to give every thing in a phone which cost 370 euro before tax. If you want more there will be Meego phone in future. Remind you meego is going to even more resource hungry than current Android.
Galaxy s has only few advantages over N8 which are display, fast processor and More ram and nothing else. While N8 has a quite long list of advantages such as best build quality (GS Has cheap build quality), gorilla glass display ( opposed to easily scratchable diplay of Galaxy S), hdmi with surround sound (no hdmi on GS), fast 3.5G, fast 2.5G, 16:9 screen, good loud speakers ( feeble on GS), USB OTG, FM transmitter, free gps navigation (do I need to tell how costly gps navigation for one year is? Plus he you are in roaming , charges will be so high that you can buy a new N8 for that price. And due to network, your map data may not download properly. While ovi maps has no such problems) etc etc. Oh do I mention camera capabily of N8 ?? Best 12mp camera on mobile ( not to mention even x6 takes better photo than Galaxy S), stereo sound recording on N8 ( opposed to poor sound recording on GS), Xenon flash ( oh gs dont even has a led flash)..
I really want to hear sensible reply from Samsung fans..

Most features are really gimmicks though. For example the usb otg. I had that feature on my mp3 player in 2005 too and in reality I never ever used it in my life. Its very inconvenient to carry a cable around with you at all times.
I am mostly interested in the aluminum design of the n8 rather than the features. I know I won't use 90% of them anyway. Things I do use are processor and screen all the time!
I rather have the core features to be good then I have a lot of extras that I never use in real life. If its not for its aluminum casing I wouldn't even be interested in this phone.
