To have more battery life ...simple things to be noted
1)Do u use 3G data everywhere and always..If yes then ur antenna finding for best signal strength draws more power
2)If No or not often...switch 3G mode off when not in use and see....you will have max backup on battery....just use a toggle widget by defualt to switch....
I get 3 days flat battery by switching this method...even by hearing music and watching videos..meant movies...
To all :
Please comment on the battery life of this handset in general.
I got my N8 back from the service on 26th Nov evening.
Now the time is 06:40 AM Indian Standard Time (GMT + 5.5 hours)
It was charged full at 10 PM Indian Standard Time.
Now the battery level is 95% remaining (after 8 hours 40 min of standby). Lets see till 24 hours.

carol, 26 Nov 2012The size of the pictures is normal. More then 3mb you will not get from it, but only with mods... moreExecellent......... Thanks for the tips
One more thing, black backgrounds in video playback doesn't appear true black but brownish! Why?
Bob, 22 Nov 2012My N8 started behaving abnormally a few days ago. It gave the message that memory was low. I t... moreIf you were using Opera, it is normal, that program eats allot of space with it's cache files. If doesn't boot anymore you maybe have to do a hard reset. This procedure leaves you without C: memory, also with this procedure you will lose all the factory apps, the only way to get them fully back is to reinstall firmware with phoenix. Out there are allot of ways to get them but only half working properly. i don't like the mess presented there. So a good flashing with phoenix is the real answer to that. Your mass memory might be saved. I never had my mass memory deleted when doing a hard reset but some people say will be formatted to. Not in my case. So... what to say, you may not get back everything, unfortunately. You can go to Nokia, maybe they can help you more with the issue.
Dean, 24 Nov 2012What about the Nokia Lumia 800 and 900? Can their batteries be replaced by the Nokia Care?They are all replaceable. Search youtube you will find them... here is Lumia 800 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YS9azQLWNAI... Nokia N9 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9u7r4j0atU
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2012somebody please tell me. Why do some people want to downgrade frome nokia belle to nokia anna?... moreTheir is no problem with Nokia Belle, just that there are some things missing (cut off) from Anna. And some people cannot get used to it. Also, some say, that the battery was better with anna, some say that is better with belle. I say, it's the same, or a bit shorter then in Anna...

You learn!!! Apparently your technology history is a "curpapir". But minding the fact you're a small boy, i forgive you... once! Second off all, in 2008 Nokia bought Symbian, that is what i've said. Learn to read, apparently you don't know to read either. Third off all, Symbian is older then you. 2004 my bright a**! Don't get "smartie" with me here. Now... go teach your self some technology before coming here with your ignorance.

From behalf of Nokia N8 ecosystem... being very shore that all users that are smarter then their phones, and not vice-versa, will agree with me. I present to you, your next Android to brag about... yes, it's a Nokia http://jok.im/img-user_02_03_2012__17_41_47__883.jpg

More then 3mb you will not get from it, but only with mods. And i haven't seen a good mode for belle refresh yet. Anyway, it does not matter. The quality is more then enough with 12 mp camera. To see the focus indicator (a kind of "square", cause you can see only the corners, there are no sides) You need to press the camera dedicated button just until the first click (half down) don't press it till the end. If you press it a bit, you will hear a silent click, that's the point when it's focusing. keep the button pressed like this until the red light goes off, then you will see this "square" (red= not good, green = good). When it's green, take the shot (during this process never release the button, cause you will have to take everything from the beginning). Don't use the screen touch button to shot photos in dark light. they may become blurry.

if i upgrade my phone to the latest O/S will my whats app messages be deleted and my normal text messages also will be deleted..
arjuna, 26 Nov 2012im using this since 2 year.no prob,nice,lovely. Go ahead nokia, 70% daily interest.there is something fishy with interest sticking to the same number.i see no. Of daily increasing comments be it criticism or offtopic or appreciation, in n8 forum and the same goes for the 920.that simply means more daily hits and interest %.but interest % never climbs up.
Carol, 26 Nov 2012Yup, Nokia has to take some risks now cause microsoft is not dedicating it's system to nokia. ... moreAnd the fact that jolla may be able to run most of the existing android apps should make it an attractive option................ Anybody from nokia seeing this.... I am n8 owner, but my next option today would be nokia phone running android apps(probably stripped android or jolla ) over android from other makers, but android phone over W8 phone. Absolutely no medical apps on symbian/WP8!!!!!!!
