Mark, 04 Jun 2010Hi There,
To each his own. But you are incorrect about Android versus S^3.
For example,... moreSir, have you ever had your hands on an Android device before? well, i was using n97. Symbian OS v9.4. then it started to become an a$$. lag, battery dies before one full day. media is normal but lags when u go into it. i did not complain. but i just traded it in for an Android device, HTC Desire and GOSH! it is so so good. with Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 1 GHz processor, it is so smooth n fast. i did not plan to change my mobile but i got a job in a company that sells mostly Android devices. they gave me a good price so i thought, why the heck not give it a try? so i got it n it has very good looks, 50000++ apps for u to download, big ram n rom, extreme speed of web browsing, 7 home screens for you to add widgets that u like, nice bright 480 x 800 pixels, 3.7 inches screen with AMOLED 16m colours capacitive touchscreen, very awesome HTC sense UI, nice sensitive touch screen and also an optical trackpad. it also supports multi touch. 5 mega pixel camera is enough for me as i wont use it much, i have a slr cam. u said symbiam is better in sms n media player. i really dont agree with u. i think this device is much better than my old phone, the n97 because it has HTC sense UI. as for the outer look, many thinks that htc, or most Android devices win because it looks more like what an adult use. Looks more like a smartphone. even most of my friends says that.
Again sir, i am not a hater, i am just giving an opinion of what i think. i really dont want you guys to regret getting a symbian device like like me.
But i am sure the N8 would be fine too. PEACE=)
Tom-Helge, 05 Jun 2010Your still good after you have lost your warranty?.Don't troll buddy.. you already have your previous comments deleted by moderators. I advice keep quite now on.
For others, you all seems to be worried about battery if its replaceable or not, if yes then how to do so.
Answer is N8 is designed such that its battery can be removed easily. Its just locked by two small screws at bottom. Battery and design is such that it occupy minimal space between front and back panels.
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2010then it would not be a c am phone flagship of Nokia, right?Right. Then it should be a Real Nokia flagship.
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.
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
Rajesh, 05 Jun 2010Try using USB OTG, 12.1 mpx photo, 720 video recording, 3.5" touch screen, HW accelerator... moreIf u put these kind of usage in any other high end phone, can they last for one whole day?
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.
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2010My Samsung Inov8 also using Symbian. I also charge my phone in every 1 or 2 days a time. I h... moreTry using USB OTG, 12.1 mpx photo, 720 video recording, 3.5" touch screen, HW accelerator can your battery last more than a day in 3.5G network?
Rajesh, 05 Jun 2010Higher the specs, shorter the battery life. You will get the full performance if your battery ... moreI think if a phone battery can last one whole day is actually not bad already.
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.
