i duno why ppl compare anything to the iphone 3gs, my mate has 1, the phone completely sucks in audio, camera, video, sound quality, battery, performance, customization, playback types, reception and specialty features, the only thing nice is a big screen and a few good apps, my lg renoir is way better than the iphone, and this nokia would munch it.
i had 5800xm its so smooth but lag most of the time and hang..ovi store contain useless apps.. And dont hide the fact that nokia is going down.. I watch and read some article about s^3 and its lag when playing 3d games.. Watch the official n8 games by nokia youtube and you will see.. Only 12mp is exceptional.. Nokia's flagship store at new york closed.. I think they're heading down..
Nokia N8 should open eyes to other manifacturers out there. What in the world are they thinking? I mean, why create a handset which is great in one part but poor at other things? For example; there's a phone which is great at screens, interface, processors but at the same time has poor camera or sound? Come on...! Please wake up...! Some have 3g video camera, but some high-end phone do not have? Some have 3mm audio jack, stereo speakera but some do not? Why do these stupidity keep on playing with us the consumers? This 'marketing' strategies is no longer suitable anymore. Wake up all you manifacturers! Come on!
I have always been a Nokia fan and really like the phone on paper, but some people are saying I would like to see what happens as it comes to the market and people are actually able to review it.
I hope that it is as good as Nokia claims it will be and also hope that the Voting results and daily interest will continue on the upwards trend at this point.
Look forward to that and hopefully owning the phone :)

Peter, 26 May 2010"The heavily scratch resistant cover glass should compensate the lack of lens cover"... moreHi Peter,
I also have an N95 8GB.
I have taken pix and videoz and never had any problems with resolution or quality of the output.
I am careful with my phone and dont bash it around or let kids near it.
I guess its like any asset you have that you care about. You gotta look after it.
I dont see there being any major issues (for me) for a camera phone with no lense cover
Another video shot with N8. Very good
That omnia HD was overclocked. I bet you can do the same with N8.
Here are the results from the real test. N8 is a monster. Symbian 3 is very efficient!!!
"The heavily scratch resistant cover glass should compensate the lack of lens cover"
COME ON, my old N95 8GB doesn't have lens cover and it really really really sucks, I had to be carefull where I put my old N95 8GB, because of that, I upgraded to a Sony Ericsson Satio, due to the BIG camera protection and a lovely Xenon flash, and now nokia finally made a powerful symbian phone but WTF??? it doesn't have lens cover and cannot remove the battery.
Still lookin forward to the real "father" of the N95 8GB, because the new nokia symbian phones lacks are not enough powerful (Look at the rubbish N97, unable to play quake 3 arena due to the pathetic RAM and CPU and lack of 3D hardware accelerator chip)
Withouy doubt, the N8 will certainly bring a storm into the mobile world. I mean, how often can we see a phone like this? Ya, the ARM 11 processor is a bit of a let down, but hey, it can save us more battery and also cost us less when we want to purchase it. Plus, the new shell 3.5 launched by SPB for symbian touch devices is really really awesome!
One more thing about the N8, it is only 370 EURO+. Can you get any other phone with this type of spec and build for that price?
nokia will kick ass! they were lil bit taken aback by the iphone but now they are coming back strong!
I dont know how slow/fast S^3 is, but 54% faster than Omnia HD and 400% faster than N97 seems pretty darn good on pre-release firmware to me
AH, 25 May 2010do not expect too much. symbrain system sucks, put all stuff together does not mean a great one.people would you please use your head? the n8 haven't been released yet, it has a very new OS.. why are you people saying that it will suck and it will be slow, don't judge it,, u haven't even tried it yet...
it will maybe be slow or it will maybe suck but for now don't judge it until you try it... and that goes for all the people who judge something based on their ignorance...
Ha ha ha ha people r quite emotional about a phone. If u like it, jus buy it if u dnt buy the android or iphone handset and let it be.
do not expect too much. symbrain system sucks, put all stuff together does not mean a great one.
