Icon! No Android or iDevice can step on it's little finger! The N8 may not be the fastest, greatest looking, future-proof phone, but it's the first BIG step forward to turning Symbian into a great OS (after the epic S60v5 failure)! I might consider buying this phone, because my good old 5530 is starting to show it's age.
y do people checking out this 2 yrs old phone? Its because they're not satisfied in their phones cam quality, n8 cam is superb. I never own an n8 but i already got a hand on it. Kinda confused that time what to buy n8 or e7.i chose e7 and never regretted it.;)
AnonD-80321, 23 Nov 2012this is such an old slow device....compared to a samsung galaxy s3 with a quad-core processorthis may be old, bcuz it was not launched in the year 2012. but the quality is good, and it doesn't slow. and n8 use symbian^3 anna and can be upgrade to symbian belle. and many of the symbian apps is not heavy to run, on the background.

I'm not sure but i don't think you can update to Anna anymore, just Belle is available. If Anna is available you can do it OTA by 'software update' menu. For Belle the latest version of PC suite is needed, it is possible only by tethering to a PC or laptop. It will automatically back up memory, just follow instructions. All installed apps will be deleted and you need to reinstall them. Belle update may fail sometimes, so try to do it on a Genuine Windows computer.

i miss the old nokia. nokia ex CEO Lee Williams. where it was nokia with design, unique design and quality. made by nokia. and of course the Symbian OS! 2006 up to 2009 alike 3250, n91, n93, 7373, etc. but there is kind of Symbian alike s40,
symbian60v2, v3, v5, symbian^3 anna, symbian belle. and has a large RAM may not be able to multitasking, and maybe a app can reach 10mb that run in the background. but better with RAM 64mb or 128mb but one app that run less than 5mb or even 10mb! and nokia with Symbian were perfect. and i though, n8 is great cellphone.

I have had my N8 for 2 years, and i must say its really outdated now, not impressed anymore..

Look at the votes going down. Apperently that even now, after this new voting policy, samdung and icrap fanboys still voting nokia as being bad. I don't think a real n8 user will vote it's phone with 1, so can lower the ratings.
the counterpart of this phone is satio sony ericson with the same camera but different in some aspect like built in memory, processor a little bit higher by nokia and i think 3.5mm jack that satio doesn't have.
lack of power but still a great phone yet with xenon flash. i love it.
It is really a good choice getting Nokia N8. It has almost all my needs. Thank you Nokia.
It seems that N8 will never ever die.
Still in the top.
Oh My God.... How great is Nokia
