Look at the link a few posts back, where the graphics performance is benchmarked. It is strong! S60 5th did not have this, big changes in S^3.
Bobby, 03 Jun 2010what do you wan't to say with this video?
this speed is exactly like Omnia HD with HX firmwar... moreHi Bobby,
I cannot change the design of the UI, you either like it, or you dont. Personally I like that the interface is similar to older versions, to me eye candy for the sake of eye candy is not smart.
Anyway, lets compare this device to other symbian devices like 8910 or android devices even.
Right now, with still not final and optimized software, with debugging running, on an older processor, the N8 device in the vid I showed runs as fast as an 8910, with a heavily modded custom firmware, and a much stronger processor.
My point is, the slower processor doesnt have to make the device slow. And the video's I have seen from official channels all suck pretty badly compared to other vids I have seen, like the one I linked to.
Imagine the N8, without debugging software, after a firmware update that removes the underclocking from the cpu, maybe even a custom fw, or accelerator.
Already now, not even finished, it is beating the competition in the most important benchmarks:
I a not saying the device is the best phone of all time, or that it sucks. I am saying dont judge the device based on the cpu. It means relatively little in this software & hardware setup. Try one when you get a chance, and then form your opinion.

Did you know, symbian OS work in menus, kinetic scroll, kastor effects...etc, only with CPU speed?!
GPU only work with some apps that require 3D rendering!
Tahnik, 03 Jun 2010i was very glad after seeing nokia n8 specifications....but again a have to say...nokia sucks ... moreReally do not know why they were needed based on symbian OS and why they put such a slow processor?
I hope they read these reviews and will change some things!

this speed is exactly like Omnia HD with HX firmwares!
I am talk about something NEW!
Did you see how smooth 3GS work? or Galaxy S? or Wawe?
I wan't from Nokia something like other trends!
Oldtime menus and old processor is not good for new times for Nokia :(
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2010SB: When you were talking about Nokia N8 on Monday, everyone thought that it will be a flagshi... more"It means that Nokia is trying to change the rules of the game. They produce very cheap phones. E.g. – low end phones for India for $10, very cheap phones from 16-30 Euro, and for these phones they have huge sales. If you check the average selling price for Nokia devices, it’s getting lower and lower each quarter. Nowadays it’s 62 Euro. It means, that high end phones from Nokia are not selling very well. Nokia sees that, and they are trying to play another game. They are trying to sell more cheaper high end devices. They are trying to push more smartphones into the market. And this strategy is very clear in N8"
Whoever posted this should go and study marketing bcos its not useful in this forum.
i was very glad after seeing nokia n8 specifications....but again a have to say...nokia sucks sometime....symbian again...i'm bored with symbian...and one of the slow mobile...while there is 720p video and 12 mp camera they have given 688mghz proccessor..lol...
its availabel in india for Rs.24000/ around 510$. check srivasavimobiles.com
Bobby, 03 Jun 2010Voting is not result from Nokia haters... it's result from last N8 videos... it's really sucks... moreTrust me, the vids you have seen are all running older sw. Take a look at the speed with which the homescreen changes in this video, compared to the ones in the demo's we have seen. It is instant:
Media player loads in less than a second, with media on a connected USB. That is fast as well.
All of these proto's are running debug sw alongside the sw, and the video's of Nokia themselves were so old it still said C0 iso N8.
So try before you buy, but dont worry.
Pengait, 03 Jun 2010C1 have 3 variants C1-00 , C1-01 , C1-02 launch at the same time.
Why nokia dont launch N8-... moreDont worry, N8 with keyboard will come, lesser camera, better specs in other areas. Do realize the ARM11 can be sped up to 1 Ghz if need be via a simple firmware update.
@ Nokia fans, 03 Jun 2010All the Nokia haters, Samsung fanboy, isheeps, SE fanboys are voting negatively against Nokia ... moreVoting is not result from Nokia haters... it's result from last N8 videos... it's really sucks!
slow, laggy and poor :(
i love Nokia.. but.. this is ENOUGH!
After n97 it's next "utopia" from Nokia...
Exactly like n97, N8 have slow processor and this is for me, big mistake from Nokia :(
noit, 03 Jun 2010Please give credits where it's due, THE ONLY thing i can find the x10 bettering the n8 in comp... moreYeah I am agree with u! N8 has 16gb onboard & x10 has only 1gb+8gb(provided memory card) then I think x10fans have to waste more money to buy a 16gb memory card & x10 is already overpriced :D
N8 has full flash support to web and edge class 33, x10 lacks flash support n edge class 10 :D
N8 has 12mp,x10 8mp(camera on x10 seems like just a hole created on itz backside :D
x10 is ahead only in cpu deprtment but Nokia ll overclock itz speed if it ll b slow ;)
N8 has better features than x10,x10 lacks many features n behind NOKIA :D
But the funny thing is that x10 has double price than N8 !
I ll buy 2 Nokia N8(orange n black) instead of buying x10 :D:D:D
Nokia is going in the right direction ..
C1 C2, Dual Sim phones :D way to go nokia way to go
@ Nokia fans, 03 Jun 2010All the Nokia haters, Samsung fanboy, isheeps, SE fanboys are voting negatively against Nokia ... moreWhat’s gold will shine.. Gold is not bought by voting and will be owned by all.. so Nokia fans... need not to worry abt both capturing... N8 IS!! Going to be neighbor’s envy and owner’s pride...
All the Nokia haters, Samsung fanboy, isheeps, SE fanboys are voting negatively against Nokia N8. Please vote N8 10/10
and each time you vote it also vote 1/10 to Wave, Galaxy S, beam and others phone who are not superior than N8 but still due to fanboyism they are getting higher vote.
( To Nokia haters: dont need to delete my comment, if you do so I will post this comment regulary to All Nokia phone sections)
john smith, 03 Jun 2010true the N8 is not a device to last, but is any device really designed to last? Do you think a... moreagree with u. In few years time each company marketing plan also going to change. We cant predict the future.
The rule of thumb is to get a device that suite your needs. Dont entice user to buy a particular smartphone just because you think the phone is the best. It might be the best for you but for other people that phone is not suitable for them.
Life is full of choices. You can give user advise but can cant choose for them.
[deleted post]Please give credits where it's due, THE ONLY thing i can find the x10 bettering the n8 in comparing the specs between the two is the CPU and screen res while everything else the n8 trumps the x10. also i do wish the cpu of n8 was a little faster, but whos to say the n8 isn't fast? PLs wait til release to truly c how fast it really is. EVEN if it is a little slower than your x10, i'd still take the n8 over the x10 anyday for its advantages in feature. :) 1500 mAh batt on ur x10 is need to support the dated tft screen with "2x the res"
[deleted post]true the N8 is not a device to last, but is any device really designed to last? Do you think any manufacturers would design a handset with enough HW and spec for future upgrades lasting more than several yrs? They are in Business to make money...plus technology is advancing so fast that no consumer would even use a set for more than 2 or 3 yrs at most.
