I have always been a Nokia fan and currently own a Nokia N95 8GB. For me, this is one of the best phones I have owned.
The 5MP camera yields excellent results.
I like the menu and the way the phone operates.
The thing I dont like about it though is the weight, bulkiness and small buttons.
What I dont like about it is the load up and loading times of some of the apps and games that i downloaded from the Ovi store.
My wife bought an Iphone 3G, 6 months ago, and I have fallen in love with that phone. I love the touchscreen, multi-threaded chat feature and the funky apps and motion control on it.
I am due for an handset upgrade soon and was keen on the Iphone 3GS but now with this NOKIA N8 I have decided that I will very SERIOUSLY consider sticking with Nokia.
I have read 30 pages of all your posts and can see a trend of concerns, so I have decided that I will wait unil it is released and keep an eye out on this forum to get people's first experiences before I make a firm decision.
Thank you all for your comments and feedback.
I look forward to hearing more.
i love this phone so much i am going this is better than apple by far nokia you r the best

About the magnifying glass i meant the part were you press and hold over picture and this circular bubble appears magnifying the section..may be it was used in other apps since i last had 5800 which seems like years ago...The 5800 was not only a breathe of fresh air and decent but the price was really cheap..
talking abt n8......guys hav ya heard abt the upcoming samsung omnia hd2.....dont u think it will beat the hell out of n8.....it has the same fate of n97....by the time n8 releases,there will be shitload of much more capable phones out in the market.....accept it guys nokia sucks!!!! n dat to friggin big ime.....hope u like it...thank u...

Its due 3rd quarter to answer person below,,i.e. july ,august ,september..Some say it will be earlier but we never know do we its just announced and thats it..The N8 along with samsung beam and wave are on my hotlist also x10 and n900 subject to price drops..To be honest and many will disagree but i dont like Android very much i think i am a nokia/symbian fanboy at heart..
Im looking forward to sell my n86 for this one... Its soo nice. More so, after reading the article bout n8 specs and cmera it got me so excited! n8 be mine!
I just hope that the Symbian software from previous models like Internet Radio, eBuddy & Windows Live Messenger will be available for the N8!

Can anybody please tell me about video led light? Is it real? If it has video led light, then why i can't see it in the picture? Thanks in advance.
