N8 has served me exceptionally well since its inception in Oct 2010. I have put its camera to great use during our tours world over, with fantastic results, may it be videos or photos. I still don't want to part with it, its 'symbian' OS, now proving to be a handicap, notwithstanding. The apt saying fits well on it, viz, 'the old is gold'. In its new 'avtaar', the said handicap should be dealt with suitably.
lost mine. so far looking for it. I like its incredible performance. quality camera.
I am using N8 for the last 3 years (bought it in Aug-2012) and since then N8 is delivering superb performance. Wonderful phone with very rare features like FM transmitter etc.
This is brilliant handset in Nokia Family, awesome and I don't hve any words to admire. really 8th wonder of the world you love this ..
I'm driving everywhere with my music is being played in my car stereo by N8's FM Transmitter. The Sound quality is good, and My N8 refuse to die, it's like an old Eagle, it's still flying high.
Nokia N8 is the best handset in the world But symbian is dead Anroid is future nokia Come back with 2016 Anroid OS i hope nokia once again made N8 Anroid phone beat all anroid best camera phone i hope nokia Make good Quality Anroid phone like symbian not window
Nokia N8 user, 26 Aug 2015It is a really good phone!!!. Camera is amazing, video is amazing. I dropped like 100 times an... morefitting new battery is easy two screws and it takes about 2/3 minutes to replace,
I still have this phone even though im using lg g pro2 and samsung grand max. The best thing in n8 phone camera is still uncomparable with high pixel phone now a days. Never hang never log. Even though i used it as back up phone its still at its best!!
I used to have two N8 (I sold the first one and gave the second one as a gift) and I missed it alot since then.
Two days ago I bought another N8. And still I'm so impressed with the buit in quality and love the design as well as its features. The specs is ok for me because Symbian is not a power hungry like Droid. Definitely It's a great and classic phone and I'm so happy. Cheeeeeers...!

it's amazing when you realize this N8 could perform many things that most newest smartphones couldn't. HDMI connection, TV out, DLNA wireless monitor output, fine camera still comparable to most of today's high end smartphones, USB on-the-go, and many more. I wish it had bigger display, higher capacity battery, higher RAM, faster processor. Oh and let's not forget, this is a 2010 smartphone, so I guess I can live with its lower-than-today-standard-spec.
mohsen , 04 Sep 2015good phone but bad cpu and worse os It's a 5 years old phone Dude, what do you expect.
Symbian OS can do what WP, Android, and iOS can do, and every other OSes learn from it. Symbian is not bad but it is killed by Elop & MS (bad and killed are two diffrent things).
Regarding CPU of N8 and other Belle Phones they just enough for Light weight and power efficient Symbian.
fERdz, 03 Sep 2015i will consider this as a CLASSIQUE phone , a league of its own, i think the only handy phone ... moreThe N8 handles stereo audio headphones just fine. If you want a headset with a microphone, you need an OMTP converter. These are available for a couple of bucks once you know what you need. I use mine every workday for a conference call.
Back when the N8 was built, pretty much all the headsets followed the OMTP standard and thus the N8 fit pretty much all the headsets. Standards are a good thing.
But then some fruity phone manufacturer came in and decided that it didn't need no stinkin' standards. They reversed a couple of wires in the plug. And the headset manufacturers followed market share and reversed the matching wires in the receptical. You can't find OMTP compatible headsets anymore. Thankfully, OMTP adaptors exist.
i will consider this as a CLASSIQUE phone , a league of its own, i think the only handy phone w/ an HDMI port!!!
just the downside is that the 3.5mm headphone jack's not compatible with other sets
