just saw another videos of the n8. And its symbian^3 is so ridiculously slow. I mean browsing to the next homescreen takes a noticeable amount of time. It takes 1 second to switch to the next homescreen! Touches didn't register a few times. Many times there was noticeable lag after a touch before the n8 responded.
This is not a fluid OS like android and ios. How can people still defend the n8?
And how can this be possible? Nokia is so long in the smartphone business and in 2010 they still cant produce fluid, fast os while other OSes are just new in this business? So unfortunate because the n8 has the best hardware out of all the phones on the market. The most allrounded phone.
smartphone user, 01 Aug 2010why nokia called smartphone?like nokia n8?is not smartphone because is symbian os base and pro... moreApparently you do not know what is Smart phone definition.
I suggest you google about it first before posting.
N8 is definitely a smart phone.
Symbian is definitely the most matured smart phone OS in the market.
You are just being a noob or simply ignorant.
The Wave , 01 Aug 2010Wave has no memory issue..at least I have not faced one..
I was browsing web, there was down... moreI don't know about you.
But i did a test in Samsung flagship store for only 10 minutes by opening around 6 apps then the memory full error occurred and i cannot even close the application.
So It DOES really have memory full error.
Btw, we are not interested in WAVE anymore.
Can you please post at the WAVE forum instead. Thanks
[deleted post]Is this the best that you can do?
Doesn't matter cause in a few hours or less times your post will also get deleted anyway. And no ones will know what you have said cause its totally pointless.
Just like Wave can never beat N8. :)
Samuel, 01 Aug 2010Check out the Pinch to Zoom browsing capability of Galaxy. Itz amazing
http://www.youtube.... moreHow Can you compare a market available device with a device with a device which running on beta firmware?? And even though you want N8 to be better in all aspect than a device which is more costier than N8..?
Why dont you blame Galaxy S for not having led flash, for poor signal quality, cheap plastic build, no gorilla glass display, no fm transmitter, no usb otg, no hdmi, poor sound recording on video, feeble loud speaker etc etc?? But you will never say this, you know N8 is better than all these aspects.. As for user experience , I have x6. And I find it quite good. Though it have only 128mb Ram but I have only face memory full issue when I was running so mann contents on background, including Symbian web browser and Opera mobile which are most ram hungry applications on symbian..
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2010Is it possible to upgrade the OS of Nokia N8 into Symbian^4?Nokia havent planned abt it but I know that it ll b possible to upgrade unofficially !

Anonymous, 31 Jul 2010Hey guys.
I read here that since N8 has a dual mic, it has a really good audio capture when... morehi there...
You probably didn't watched my links on camera + video carefully (may skipped part 2)...
ok let me clarify....
Do you know that n900 has dual mic i.e. one mic on the both sides of the phone??
ok here is an audio sample of n900
in replies to posts about video Damian Dinning (n8 camera architect)told that
"It’s a combination of the mics AND the new algorithms which make the sound as good as it is"
moreover when another user compared with n900 he told n8 is even better!!!!!!
And by the way, why else on the earth there is another mic hidden beside the carl zeis lens???
Check out the Pinch to Zoom browsing capability of Galaxy. Itz amazing
Compare it with the Nokia N8 web browsing in the youtube link i provided in my previous comment.
Nokia is no way close.
smartphone user, 01 Aug 2010why nokia called smartphone?like nokia n8?is not smartphone because is symbian os base and pro... morecan u pls explain some of the features ur so called smartfn have which symbian dnt? Lower processor is a hardware issue not a OS matter. And imo smarter things always do the same work with less resources
why nokia called smartphone?like nokia n8?is not smartphone because is symbian os base and processor very low. n8 only ordinary phone like n97,x6,n86. nokia pls stop saying ur units are smartphone. do some unit windows powerd,android b4 u said nokia smartphone. im sorry to all nokia lovers ds phone is not smartphone ok. ds is not cmpter bsed to called smartphne. the only phone called smartphone is windows powered,android,ios not “symbian os”. samsung,htc,iphne good smartphne ever seen. worldwide. not nokia symbian OS.
eze, 01 Aug 2010i think you work for samsung dude.
i use skyfire browser on my 5800 (best browser for 5800) a... moreWhere I work is not the point here. The point is that it does not do that in Samsung Wave and Galaxy. It's about the User Experience. I would want my phone to pinch zoom out without any checkerboard boxes appearing. Fast browsing is something that has to be there by default. So rather not discuss that.
It does that in your 5800 and it is doing that in the Nokia N8 as well basically points towards the Symbian OS not being effective enough in controlling the capacitive pinch zoom out smoothly.
Everything else in the Nokia N8 seems to be just fine. And I absolutely love it. Thanks.
s@, 31 Jul 2010wave also has memory problem and knowing samsung they wont release any updates to solve it. St... moreWave has no memory issue..at least I have not faced one..
I was browsing web, there was downloading going on background, and was answering calles..
No lag, no freez, no out of memory..
And for your concern Wave has more that 8 fw upgrades till now, and Bada 2.0 upgrade is coming.. Go Wave go..
Samuel, 01 Aug 2010SAD NEWS for NOKIA N8..!! Just checked with Nokia.
There is one real big problem with Noki... morei think you work for samsung dude.
i use skyfire browser on my 5800 (best browser for 5800) and it does the same thing when you zoom out, its not a problem as long as my browsing is fast.
now you can look for something else thats wrong with the n8 :)
