In the Same price Nokia could easily make N8 with just 8 mp camera instead of 12 mp, 1500 mAh battery (since downgrading camera also provide some more space), 800 mhz processor and rest of same stuff as original N8.
You CAN CHANGE The battery By yourself. You remove the screws and the battery just slides out. Slide one in and screw it back in and you good...
You can also feedback to nokia that why dont make bigger capacity battery in the same battery size
Regarding the battery
you can go to the mugen site to shout at them that you want them to make bigger cappacitiy batter for n8 and n97 mini
mugen have already done it with n97 classic and n900

Because any other phone might give u the similar problem and portable charger can charge any of your phone which support usb power charge.

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

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...
