Anonymous, 21 Jul 2010i voted it 10 10 10!Like if its design worths a 10 or performance with Symbian ^3 / 256Mb RAM / 600-700Mhz CPU to pretend to handle 12MP photos / stills galleries would worth a 10 too. Hopefully it won't lag for any operation, like browsing galleries, browsing photos 1 by 1 fastly etc.. with phone empty just as with quite large collections after a while, i guess most ppl interested in it like pictures and will sure carry / get easily hundreds of shoots on it.
I don't see the point for voting on a phone which hasn't been released anyway.

Off course, you can consider it faster than let's say a samsung omnia but the system is overally slow/laggy, as you prefer, due to i would say lack of a biffier cpu and it's sad when you see its not so helping thickness, it would seem to be a powerhouse. If you only use maemo browser you sure will find it fast. But response time due partly to the slow gui (see how many pauses you have to do when using it) and loading times for almost anything not being the dialpad. ex: launching a video within the already launched player.., i'm not even talking about loading downloaded apps or simply ovi maps app).
I use it only for work, rest of time i let it off,
anyway its battery isn't fantastic neither.
Will Nokia N8 support video chat, i.e. Skype video chat, Yahoo Messenger chat?
I honestly pray that Nokia N8 will be able to support video chat.
Also, will N8 be able to show streaming videos other than youtube?

My cousin has one and slow certainly isn't one of its characteristics. All reviews I've seen of it say that it's very fast and handles multitasking several apps smoothly with no (or little) lag.
It seems to be a great phone, but I do hope the processor is faster than N900, which is also a great phone has serious problems with the processor: very slow. - I hope this one to be the definitive one!

This is really Nokia's last chance to keep a fan! If this is phone sucks like the n97 I am switching to android full time and never looking back!!

But in reality, do you need that type of resolution on a display? The only real reason I would want the retina display for the N8 is because the photos would look amazing on it.
Lets hope that the N8 isn't a disappointment like the N97. That was the worst phone I have ever owned! I'm already disappointed on how the N8 still uses the same widgets like the N97.
They need to push symbian^4 or moved to android!
I would love to see a Nokia version of android. With Andorid store + Ovi store, ovi maps + google maps. Ovi maps really sucks here in the US.

The colors are great, the brightness is ok but the pixel resolution is a cheat. It doesn't have true 800x600 resolution and the sharpness of the iphone4 display is clearly better.
Since this is about N8 I suspect that the display will have regular RGB pixel arrangement which almost give it the same effective resolution as Galaxy S becuse this strange PenTile pixel arrangement. Now, if I buy a Nokia N8 I will probably not downgrade too much when it comes to sharpness of the display.
Nokia N8 despite its less powerful hardware seems to be more versatile and you can just do more with it, that's why this phone still appeal to me.
Nerf, 21 Jul 2010Does anybody know if the N8 display has a PenTime Matrix?
PenTile tech is described here:
... morei am not sure that you really own samsung galaxy S,because it has the best screen in the market ,the super amoled has the best contrast,the best black color,you have to see the s amoled by your naked eyes not through LCD screen.
and for this pixel stuff and resolution stuff :the samung galaxy has 480x800 pixels while the iphone 4 has 640x960 but when holding both phones from a normal distance you will not see any difference in the sharpness but you will notes that the super amoled screen can not beaten :
check this link for comparison http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0BMBiYEKVE&feature=related
by the way i own samsung wave which has the same super amoled screen and the first thing people say when they see my phone: oh my god what a beautiful screen ;)
Everyone is so excioted and comments are saying " this phone is amazing".. how do any of you know if it has not been released? just wait and see before you all comment, it can be a dissapointment, maybe the reception wont be good ;) lol, u never know!
Tshepo, 21 Jul 2010Where can one get this phone I have been everwhere? Er...Helloooooo....What planet are you from? It's not even being released yet!!! Mars is a bit more advanced than us....try there!!!
No camera-lens protection!?
One of the best features of the N86 is missing on N8? I can`t understand that!
I remember all the phones I used to own! Here is a list from most recent down to past listings:-
Nokia 5800 XpressMusic(Black)
Sony Ericcsson W880i(Black/Orange)
Sony Ericcsson K750i(Black)
It's been so long since nokia announced N8 and it may be available only at the end of next month. I'm not complaining though. I actually like how Nokia do their business. Instead of rushing their phones from the factory they actually take time just to make sure everything works fine. It makes the wait worthwhile.
