Best phone right now. HTC HD2 is a close second, but it requires the $25 pda fee in The USA. The N8 & HTC HD2 offer the most features, but the N8 w/T-Mobile is cheaper to operate.
Worst Phone ever. Nokia just keep repackaging the 5800 to N97 then X6 and now to N8. Nokia wake up smell the roses. Yesterday Technology for today.
Kcd, 04 May 2010KID - so do I - just don't want to be disappointed by getting an overwhelming phone with what ... moreyeah, me too.
actually, I've been thinking about this one thing for some times now, why is it that the Symbian^3 looks like cant be compared at the same level as another OS, like android for example?
is it about the User Interface? os is it about the apps? or is it about how easy you can share and connect to your social network? or anything else?
cause I've been thingking that I want to try an android phone too, but I just cant see a distinguished advantage from android from this symbian^3
mostly, I think it's because of the number of the apps, cause android is an open source OS, but isnt it S^3 also an open source now??
really nice phone specs.. just wish they used 1Ghz processor instead and an android os. still great phone though
KID, 04 May 2010well, true, maybe it's not so simple as a Firmware upgrade to switch from Symbian^3 to Symbian... moreKID - so do I - just don't want to be disappointed by getting an overwhelming phone with what might be an underwhelming OS (compared to other OS) - so I'll wait until Nokia release it with S^4 (I am sure they will be testing S^4 with this phone).
also, I read somewhere that this phone will also support threaded sms view out of the box, nice!!
bububaba, 04 May 2010What's Nokia's problem? They need to increase the processor speed of their phones. SE is obvio... moreWhy would they have to do that for symbian3 already is marked as a low consumption OS just like S60 why do you think it doesn't need much to run
But just need a little more to run faster
434 is ok since the n97/97mini,5800,5530,5233/5230 all run at that same speed so inscreasing the clockspeed
Adding more ram
Making the screen amoled
Have an aluminum unibody
And tweeking the OS to optimum performance
Will make the phone so much better which it has
bububaba, 04 May 2010What's Nokia's problem? They need to increase the processor speed of their phones. SE is obvio... morewell, I think 680 is enough power, it has a graphic accelerator too. And also, maybe nokia will give this phone an extra power along with a firmware upgrade, just like my 5800.
I really cant wait to buy this phone!! but the price are usually going up in my country, like when N900 come up here, it's priced around US$ 710
Kcd, 04 May 2010Going from Symbian^3 to Symbian^4 is not like a simple firmware upgrade - it's a whole new OS.... morewell, true, maybe it's not so simple as a Firmware upgrade to switch from Symbian^3 to Symbian^4, but I still hope for the best
KID, 04 May 2010I think maybe that nokia will enable N8 to be upgraded from symbian^3 to Symbian^4, if not, th... moreI wish people wouldn't speculate about upgrading the phone from S^3 to S^4 - it's not been mentioned anywhere on the Symbian or Nokia site. If you want this phone with S^4 then wait - if Nokia has any sense they will release it early next year with S^4.
cristid, 04 May 2010Nokia really needs to upgrade its displays, this is a low rezolution comaperd with other brand... morewell, I think the 360x640 is fine already, since this is a mid class phone I think, and the high end phone will be using meego as their OS
true, it's not much if you compared it to other phone like HTC HD2, or Omnia HD, but I think that's not a problem, look at Iphone, it has a lower res than N8, but still a great phone isnt it??
What's Nokia's problem? They need to increase the processor speed of their phones. SE is obviously doing that right now.
KID, 04 May 2010I think maybe that nokia will enable N8 to be upgraded from symbian^3 to Symbian^4, if not, th... moreYou might be able to upgrade from symbian^3 to ^4 since it has 512mb ROM which is the first time ever mentioned about from nokia
So i guess it can get a custom rom soon enough
Finally a nokia phone that actually is worth buying. It has everything a gadget lover could ask for. Bluetooth 4 would be an excellent choice if it facilitates that but the most important thing is, its not a phone, its an art and a passionate way to say no to iPhone. Regards.
Anonymous, 04 May 2010no thats wrong the loudspeaker on the back i get that from the user manual its here http... moreSomething is not right on that phone.........no microUSB charger wtf nokia or it's a mistake
Nokia N8 is my dream come true!!! This is the Best By far... Lets see the Meego device and the successor to N97... Because following Nokia's succession rule this device based on name and Specification should be the successor to N86 8MP :)
Nokia really needs to upgrade its displays, this is a low rezolution comaperd with other brands. If the battery is not accesible without a screwdriver is really bad, if the phone hangs and the only way to restart is to take out the battery is to use a screwdriver.
Anonymous, 04 May 2010i am having this phone for 2 years.
But since my phone is getting older, it also function slo... more:)) Nobody believes you :)) You can't have THIS phone for 2 years because nokia didn't launched it.
When will it appears I will go to buy it :X:X IT'S THE GREAT PHONE I EVER SEEN! The specs are stunnishing and the design is more than that!
