I read a lot of comments on how crap the this phone is even before it has hit the stores and it makes me laugh. I do have a question for you Android and Iphone OS lovers out there, is there any special feature or function that is available on your phones (lets put games aside shall we) that is not available on a Symbian OS. I hear some argue that the CPU is not fast enough. For me this argument is as false and old as the CPU on an MAC is not as "highspec-ed' as one in a Windows machine. Higher CPU speed is irrelevant if the job gets done just as well on a lower clock speed and in this case, the Symbian OS does not need a 1GHz processor to do the same job. Some have asked why it did not come with Android OS. I ask you the same, why doesn't the IPhone come with Android? One more point I would want to add to question comments that the screen resolution is too low for a flagship model. Was the N86 a flagship model for Nokia, I never thought so. It was the best camera phone Nokia produced up to that time (replacing the N82, the previous photography top dog) but it was never in the "flagship" price range even though it was no slouch when HW was concerned. I think it should be obvious when the price was also announced for the N8 that this is meant to be a 'best in the market Nokia camera phone' and not necessarily the top of the pile Nokia phone. Perhaps its to soon for the N9 (possibly loaded with Symbian 4) to replace the N97.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2010Ive been wondering for years when any manufacturer will upgrade the vga videocalling camera t... moreif they make a videocalling camera of 1.3mp then it would increase the tariff for video call and it may be braking in transmission as it would mean a higher data transfer cos mp cameras have better quality than vga so you take more memory
Glad that s3 has threaded sms
does it have slide to unlock? And multitouch at keyboard? It will be a dissappointment if it hasnt these feature

But if you sure Beam will be a hit then why you are crying on n8 forum, haha you know this n8 will kick all your beloved samsungs phones...
Hey you nokia haters see, the picture quality of N8 is comparable to a digicam of 300 euros (google it if you dont trust me) , means you are just spending some 70 euros to buy a well featured smartphone, dont say this phones feature are bad.
This phone have 680 mhz cpu with graphics accelerator (which is 3 times more powerful than 3gs, google it) they both together work as a 900 mhz cpu..
GSMarena is a nice place u can see my IP again ...again

All Nokia hater putting bad comment on the battery life of this N8 see this:
Satio is equipped with just 1000 mAh battery and it sports a power hungry 3.7" TFT display and still it gives a good talktime , while you know n8 has 1200 mAh battery and 3.5" AMOLED display, which is 40% less power hungry than tft one...

KLPD, 29 Apr 2010whts the need of removing battery, other than for placing sim card?
i haven't opened back pan... moreKLPD,
If you use the battery heavily during one day, and you want to replace it with a freshly-charged one, screws are a bad joke.
Also, after a few hundred charges, batteries die (they no longer hold the charge they once could) and your battery life will suffer terribly. At this point the battery itself needs replacing.
This is the problem: manufacturers don't care what happens outside warranty and they don't seem to care if you want to use your phone for longer than the average person. Apple doesn't let you swap their battery and it's sad to see Nokia doing it.
It's better if the average person can replace a battery quickly and easily for many reasons.
