hey guys got the phone yesterday and here is my opinion:
i hope this will help everyone's problems
What I like:
1. the screen is awesome
2. Sound quality is one of the best and the headphones are like the one's with sony handsets
3. UI is simple and with themes it gets new icons so i'm happy
4. Camera is good not the best i'll say but better than some 5 MP phones i've seen
5.messaging is good have to get used to the keyboard though(it's different from the HTC)
Not to like:
1. build quality seems to suffer (metal bits would had given a better feel)
2. battery life is not that good after first recharge my phone is about to die out in a day.... but i did use WIFI a lot and music

Actually i m planning to buy a new phone and i like n8 so i just wanna know more about this phone.. But when i read comments on this forum i was disappointed b'coz no one is talking about n8 at all, people are just criticizing.. Some are supporting n8 while other are apple or samsung fans.. I just wanna know about the pros and cons of n8 exclusively.. Not about the advantage and disadvantage of n8 over other phones..
What about the divx/xvid support of this device mentioned in the specs...is it really true, that N8 supports these codecs???
Supratim, 29 Jun 2010They keep on increasing the H/W specs, but are they aware how painstaking Symbian is, and how ... moreI don't think everyone think that Symbian is "painstaking".
Nokia not only improving in H/W specs.
They also improving in Symbian.
This is why there are Symbian^3 and ^4 now and Meego...etc.
They keep on increasing the H/W specs, but are they aware how painstaking Symbian is, and how much the people hate it?
Superphone, 29 Jun 2010Please read this link before commenting about iphone or saying symbian is the most desirable o... moreNo one says symbian is the most desirable but there is no competing the fact that symbian is the most powerful mobile os there is. And if you'ld ask me, i'ld place windows mobile ahead of android for now atleast.
That article is about sales figures and not a professional review on os capabilities and besides, the article was based on symbian ^1 not ^3.
On Endaget a 4 minute video of the N9 or N8 with Querty keypad an looks a very good mobile indeed,only a 8 mega-pixel camera on it,is this the first new meego phone or not will have to wait an see,also want to C7 proper images as Nokia says they are going to release the C7 but still no Video or Proper Images been officially shown,as the images we have seen looks more like a Samsung mobile than Nokia
[deleted post]Why do you guys care so much whether we are deceived or not?
We see what we like and we get it.
We are using our own money to pay for something we like (N8 in this case).
Plus, N8 is a lot cheaper than most of its same rank phone in the market now.
Thanks for your concerns but no thanks.
We will be happy with what we get. :D

I am not sure and i don't really care actually.
I think you know that this is Nokia N8 topic and not Iphone topic rite?
What kind of response do you expect from Nokia N8 supporter when you are posting something irrelevant to N8 topic?
I am sorry if you think that my statement is criticizing. But to me, I was only posting my point of view like you are giving yours (in the wrong topic).
Please read this link before commenting about iphone or saying symbian is the most desirable or powerful.

They tried something new which didn't work for them so they just gave a temporary solution for the problem, i hope they will solve this problem as soon as possible and the new batch will be flawless.. Apart from this issue all the apple phones are flawless.. And for all those who are criticizing iphone, n8 or any other phones, please dont criticize unless u own it.

Well if Symbian is better bec it was released way long ago. Then Motorola would have been in Nokia position and yahoo would have taken the world. It doesnt matter who started anything first.
Its a highly power packed phone. arguably the best phone from NOKIA so far.

Like blaming customer for not holding the phone the right way hence causing the reception issue?
To JOHN again, 29 Jun 2010Below article is not intended towards u but in support of your comments. To all the devotee... moreHey u are saying that 77% of mobiles were sold to existing apple customers, this means that apple's customers are not moving away to any other brand, they are satisfied with their company. Retaining customers is more difficult than attracting new customers.. There is no doubt that there are many iphone killer in the market, but the support that apple gave to their product is truly amazing, as they have to concentrate on limited phones..

V, 29 Jun 2010Nokia N8-01 with QWERTY keyboard is coming soon. I should wait for it rather than this N8-00.I will wait for this.
N8-01 do not have 12 megapixel snapper nor xenon flash.
