The rating click rates of this phone model alone is convincing enough.
Fans from other brands are gathered to constantly trying to vote this phone down just for one simple reason. Because of its popularity. They felt that this phone is a BIG THREAT for their favorite.
So they are trying to vote this phone down so that they won't feel regret getting any other phone other than this phone simply because this phone is not highly rated.
But good phone will always excel in term of sales.
Look at things in long term pal.
I will get this phone no matter what and i believe those who like this phone will do the same whether if it is highly rated or not. :)
worldwide, 03 Jun 2010oh.. thank u for ur opinion.. but would the n8 lag n does the battery life last long? You're welcome. I'll let you be the judge of if the Nokia N8 lags. Here's a guy's Youtube channel showing off real time usage of the Nokia N8. Remember the videos demoing the Nokia N8 is a prototype with firmwares that are old and consistently being updated.
I would say yes, the battery will last long, but it all boils down to how much you use the device. The battery is small in size but is put to good use considering the OS is Symbian^3 and the hardware isn't power hungry like Android devices.

If you are going to try and dissuade people from getting this device, would you terribly mind elaborating what exactly you find to be better on the android device you referred to?

I like N8 design. Design to fit n have grip when you hold it on both of your hands while on landscape mode.
I think NEW PSP PHONE should adopt this design concept.
"Symbian^3 was announced on 15 February 2010. This is the first fully open source version of Symbian, following the completion of the release of the entire Symbian codebase earlier that month. The Symbian^3 release introduced new features such as HDMI support, a new 2D and 3D graphics architecture, and UI improvements. One of the first mobile phone to feature this fully open source OS (Symbian^3) is Nokia N8."

A new 2D and 3D graphics architecture takes full advantage of the hardware acceleration available to deliver a faster and more responsive user interface with smooth transitions and improved look-and-feel.
A new 2D and 3D graphics architecture takes full advantage of the hardware acceleration available to deliver a faster and more responsive user interface. Users, developers and device creators will all benefit greatly from the visual enhancements and smooth transitions that will significantly improve the look-and-feel of their applications and services. Combined with industry-standard OpenGL ES, the new architecture also provides a great platform for high performance games – all without slowing the phone down.
Oh, I just read as well it is 4G ready. LTE anyone?

(sym 3 gpu acc) i am read developement kit and GPU acc will become in sy... moreGraphics rendering is generally divided into hardware-accelerated rendering and software rendering. In hardware-accelerated rendering, the rendering is performed by a dedicated graphics accelerator (Graphics Processing Unit, GPU), while in software rendering the rendering is performed by the device main processor (Central Processing Unit, CPU).

Do not write lies and not take for each well-intentioned criticism of evil!
SYMBIAN 3 is NOT GPU accelerated!!!
I think this phone looks very good. Not used it yet but I would not mind buying one. For those who don't like it the sreen and or any other feature you have a whole world of phones to choose from so don't be petty in your criticism. What is good is good and Nokia is known for quality products. Personally I love the whole look.

They would rather bloat about how their numbers are bigger and badder rather than have a well balanced performing device with can actually meet and exceed the competition.
If a mobile can have unlimited power like desktop computer i am sure nokia will use 1ghz or 2ghz or even 3ghz processor.
Unless the battery technologies evolve, nokia will still use under 1ghz processor on symbian since it is design/optimized for processor under 1ghz.
Do you think nokia do not want to use a 1ghz processor??
What is the point using 1ghz processor when symbian^3 can run pretty reasonable at 680mhz(what i saw on the video).
If nokia overclock N8 to 1ghz, people will still complaint that its using Symbian^3.
I think most of the people here that bash N8 like N8. The only thing they dont like is nokia not producing any android phone. I'm sure they will praise nokia if N8 comes with android OS. They Will close one eye even if it have N8 have 680mhz processor just because it an android phone.
So the point is N8 basher Like Android OS. Other Brand cant make an android phone with full of features for them thats why they hate nokia for making a full of features device for a symbian device.
They actually envy symbian user. Why an outdated os have that many features when our high-end android phone dont have that features.

Furthermore, like Mark mentioned, Symbian^3 is GPU accelerated. If you can't understand this, perhaps you need not to comment.
Mark, 03 Jun 2010Hi Bobby, I cannot change the design of the UI, you either like it, or you dont. Personally... moreSome people are just lost causes for they can't think beyond their limited ideals. The average person knows nothing truly about CPUs, their architects, Symbian, and so forth but what they hear from friends and read from other ignorant people.
