Anonymous, 31 May 2010Dude, other than the UI, do share how or why you think Symbian needs to improve?What I know is that the main languages used for programming Symbian are J2ME and C++ but the way their C++ is implemented is unnecessarily complex therefore making the OS prone to errors which is quite evident in current Symbian phones. Now no doubt they would have figured that one out but until Symbian ^3 ships guess we'll never know hence I find it incredible that people are already proclaiming the N8 the best phone ever.

Dude, do you like play your movies in fast foward?
"Wait until XPERIA X10 gets Android 2.2, then lets talk about what's fast."
All I hear you harp since you started spamming for SE is wait until it gets And 2.2, when it has 2.2 blah blah...
Dude, you come here complaining about a product (you might not get) that is not even in the market yet by defending another device that has been around for some time that according to your will be only perfected some time down the road. Am I missing something here?

The ui is not too bad at all. The performance is great. It rocks . The price will make me believe it is the nokia best selling phone
Niraj, 30 May 2010You forgot to mention that touch wiz sucks and wave looks ugly.. Also it have only total one t... morecan u explain how touchwiz sucks??wat about symbian UI??i dnt think its like sense or timescape UI...
wave looks ugly?man its made up of metal and weights only 118 gm with 3.3 inch(800*480) scratch-resistance screen and 1500 mAH battery...btw n8 looks like electric razor...
if u hate any phone fine,bt plz dnt give baseless OPINION without knowing the FACT...plz dnt try to be n/s/h/lsheep like isheeps...maintain harmony..fighting on the basis of phone brand is totaly useless...
Mark, 30 May 2010YOU cant be serious mate. Where your logic fails is in the assumption this is ceteris paribus.... morehaha like the car analogy---> a miata with s2000 engine will spank a V8 anyday ~_^
Tom-Helge, 30 May 2010Like i have said many times earlier, making things go really smooth and making things goes rea... moreplease support your claim that the n8 can't play 720 vids. its GPU was designed exactly for this reason and here is my support:
some N8 prototype have divx support...anymore complains?
I feel like that The WORLD WAR THREE will begin if nokia didnt realesed it anytime soon! loool guys its a PHONE!
Tom-Helge, 30 May 2010First of all, calling this phone for the new era is just LOL.
DOn't take me wrong though, i... moreHave to agree agree with u, Just switched to Android after a long hard fight with service provider, was using the miserable N97 OGD what I was thinking buying that phone.
At the mo I am so wow'ed by my new phone to an extent that S^3 looks ancient already. Five days of pure bliss no hung ups no freezes, which were a daily occurrence with the N97, had to hard reset every Friday to make sure I could use it taking pics of my 3yr old playing football on Saturday lol
Mark, 30 May 2010YOU cant be serious mate. Where your logic fails is in the assumption this is ceteris paribus.... moreLike i have said many times earlier, making things go really smooth and making things goes really fast is 2 totally different things here.
And it's here where 1 GHz Snapdragon owns the CPU in the Nokia N8. And when it's about running very heavy tasks like 720p movies with very high bitrate / quality.
And when you can run games with 480x854 in resolution. Then it helps with a good CPU. Ofc a good GPU also helps alot.
Even my XPERIA X10 with Android 1.6 is twice as fast as the movies from Nokia N8 shows now.
Wait until XPERIA X10 gets Android 2.2, then lets talk about what's fast.

If we all have to use the same frame, wheels, etc, then the bigger engine will likely be faster in a car. The point is, running this spec, the N8 can be considerably faster than a snapdragon android device since S^3 (even if our opinions on its merits vs android differ) is a lot lighter and, kaching, not a VM. Why on earth would someone need those higher specs then, if this is already quicker? It is a resource constrained environment we are talking about here, where less energy use is better. Tell me, how long the battery lasts in a snapdragon device?
On top of that, the part that really matters, and you as an Android user cannot understand, is the fact that the ui is hardware accelerated, the OS dumps tasks to the GPU and this here GPU is tearing all of those Snapdragon configurations a new arsehole. Have you even seen the benchmarks?
Niraj, 30 May 2010You forgot to mention that touch wiz sucks and wave looks ugly.. Also it have only total one t... morethe build quality of the samsung wave :
aluminum body made from one continuous cast so there are no parting lines on the sides.
scratch resistant surface (the whole body not only screen).
Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors 480 x 800 pixels, 3.3 inches (as you might know the best phone screen ever).
Weight 118 g.
so i think the answer is what your friend said
( very poor phone )!!!!!!
phones fan, 30 May 2010NOKIA says to you ( nice job )..... and give you 5000 of nothing and will cheat you for 370 euros to buy this slowly garbage :PPP

DOn't take me wrong though, i know this phone is good enough for today or when it's released, but calling a phone with descent hardware with just a camera that is very nice for the new era is the biggest joke i have ever heard.
I think your new era is a bit to late when this phone have existed for a long time already: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_w880_amoled_12m-2948.php
Yes this phone will hopefully come out in europe later with a new name.
Secondly, only because Nokia sells more than other brands doesn't mean they are the best.
It's like saying Toyota is better than Ferrari only because Toyota sells much more than Ferrari. This is also something i'm laughing hard to.
Third. Yeah i watched the videos about the Nokia N8. But as an Android user i'm not impressed at all, not yet at least.
Yeah, the Nokia N8 will pwn the hell out of anything that have with iPhone to do, that's pretty damn sure.
But calling a mobile phone with descent hardware that is a bit old except for the camera for future of technology. Uhm, you can't be serious pal.
hani, 30 May 2010no hdmi output no usb otg 4 years old outdated camera small screen size no hd video output no ... moreit is very strange and unconvincing answer, since when the lack of hdmi ,usb otg,fm transmitter make the phone very poor?!!?
you are counting the extra features of the n8 !
not every one needs these features,if i am in home i would better connect my blue-ray player or my laptop to my hd tv to watch a movie or any hd video,and if i put a movie in my phone that means i want to watch when i am outside.
and this usb otg ,as i understood it should allow me to connect flash usb to my phone ,is that right ?!?
the camera of samsung wave is outdated!!,may be because it is the first to capture hd video @30fps ?!
and then you wrote no hd video output which i think it equals no hdmi.
the price is about $510.
[deleted post]you are vote spammer!
I have already said, this BIG score for this crap is unreal!
It is clear that the result of only a few people who still spam ... 10 10 10
I love Nokia N8, that's all I know. I don't care what you guys think of it but one thing is quite sure, this phone is the new-era phone. Nokia phones are the most selled phones ever, everybody knows that. And I can't say if it'll be good or not, but come on guys! Haven't you watched the videos about it? It's a marvelous phone and it has nothing to do with the iPhone. It can have similiar apps and stuff but it's Nokia, we're not talking about Palm or HTC, it is Nokia guys! This is nothing but a magnificent phone and it's the future of technology.
