Anonymous, 05 Jun 2010If u put these kind of usage in any other high end phone, can they last for one whole day? U ... moreI have used hundreds of phones, and yes I have used Samsung Innov8 I8510 too. I liked this phone as it was very well built. It can be called as one of the best Samsung phones. Large keypad, nice screen, bought it when it was released at USD 650.
I use E72 with 1500 mAh, new OS. Bought it from Nokia showroom. In 3,5G network if I only use Bluetooth about an hour to transfer my videos and photos to my Laptop, tend to loose about 15% battery in process. If I use 5 mpx camera to take QVGA video about 30 minutes, 25% battery is exhausted. E72 is only 2.34" screen. As I said, its just a thought about N8 battery..it could be true or its just I am being too cautious...time will tell.
the USB port makes it one of a kind and it seems Nokia is trying to to show us what the phone of the future will look like. Tumbs up,Nokia

U will get the same answer rite?
As i said, u can use "portable charger" u really need to use your phone so intensively.
It will be much better than buying backup phone battery for every phone u have. But i think u won't understand cause u only use one phone rite.

But if i really need a backup battery, i have my portable battery charger which cost me around SGD50 only. Plus it can also charge any other devices which support usb power charge.
U haven't heard of such thing call portable battery charger before have u?
Btw, there are loads of high tech phone (without good camera or xenon flash) out there now where the battery cannot even last for one whole day.
The Nokia N8's ARM11 CPU is not the same as the ARM11 434 and ARM11 600 used in other NOKIA phones!
-= It's newer and faster one + more power efficient! ;)=-

I also charge my phone in every 1 or 2 days a time.
I have been using it for 1 and a half years and still do not need to change the battery.
Why do u need to change your battery in 3 to 4 months times if you charge it like 1 or 2 days once?
Nokia release this phone at july please
in singapore people come to shop to buy iphone
nokia lose to the hype and eyecandy, the best phone maker will sink if n8 not come soon
hiii.......do any 1 knw hw mch it cost i wanna by it n hw it is 2 use.......
[deleted post]"I'm also sure they will say that Symbian ^3 is nothing new except that the Symbian ^3 is the same as the old Symbians but with new and improved touch friendly UI and many bug fixes."
yup, thats wat im aiming for... + hardware acceleration... i dont rrly need so much animation effects going on after every click.... and if i changed my mind, i can just install it my own, after all symbian is extermly customizable, and this one is open source too, custom FW ftw..
smith, 05 Jun 2010replace battery after 6 months? are you kidding me? I always charge my phone every night when ... moreHigher the specs, shorter the battery life. You will get the full performance if your battery is new and as the time passes after approx 150 charges, your battery will tend to get flat faster when you will use the higher specs ( as in N8 ). Your battery will last even 5 years if you use it with care but you will not be able to use N8 in normal way if your battery is even 1 year old...As I said, these specs included with N8 will chew battery and you will need a good battery to use it without any problems throughout a day. Many of us have a habbit of carrying a spare battery but in case of N8 you wont be able to do that...
about the battery life,if you look at the specs sheet again,it says you can play up to 50 hrs of music and up to 7 hrs of video playback and up to 12.30 hrs of talk time on 2g networks.so i think it's clear about the batterylife as a regulare user and if you comparison this info with your habbits of phone usage you can make a good guess about how long you can use the phone with one charge according to your usage

I always charge my phone every night when going to bed and it lasted for 2 yrs with about 80% original capacity left...You must have a defective battery or don't quite understand about batteries as you though u did my friend.
Various, 05 Jun 2010Same also goes for Omnia hd. People were also excited about it for the hd video recording and ... moreYes, you are right...we as consumers throw our full support to the mobile companies in form of hype we create, the amount of faith we enforce behind them time and time they launch a new product and end up getting a foolish products...every brand have had atleast one HIT in a span of 6 to 12 months and rest of the products have been HIT AND RUN...The problem is we are too faithfull to our beloved brands and the brand owners are more faithfull to their profits...I am not sure if any Brand owner or their staff would even bother to read the posts we have been doing here...they will do what they have to do...and we spend hours and hours praising them and their products and after using the product we spend hours and hours on the site compaining about the product as it did not live up to the hype which was created by ourselves
mj, 05 Jun 2010does is it mean I can't change the battery?No you can't change the battery on your own as it is not USER replaceable.
It has got screws and screw Nokia for that.
whyy nokia dont change thos ugly battery and network icons?? to colorise maybe
mj, 05 Jun 2010does is it mean I can't change the battery?you can buddy but not at home i guess.. also i think there should be purpose behind 1200mhz battery.. it might be well optimized than 1320mhz on old phones with less features.. nokias are not fool to put low power battery in high end phones.. better to wait reviews on this from final product..

People were also excited about it for the hd video recording and many people also claims that it is best. But after its release all hype are gone. When X10 and Galaxy S announce, people are also very excited that they will be extremly fast. But in reality both still lag despite the 1 ghz processor. These hype are usual and never stop.
