Nokia Store is gone and you have to get apps from alternative sources (AppList works like Nokia Store though, and it has the basics). For internet there's only Opera Mini and UC Browser, you can download files with them. Default browser is pretty much rubbish. You can read pdf, although on a 360x640 display it's more for emergency, but I have a few e-books in it. Most YouTube apps don't work any more, but Opera Mini or UC will open a YouTube video in lower quality. Some chat apps are still supported (WhatsApp, Viber, Hike, Nimbuzz, Fring). GPS works fine, even offline, and maps were updated this year (by Here people, not by Nokia). There is a video editor built-in, I didn't try it too much, but it's good for emergency. As for camera, it's still one of the best out there, and one of the few phones with real Xenon flash. The same for video, you can record HD with stereo sound. I hope this helps. For my needs it's perfect (after customizing the interface, these days I mostly only need Opera Mini and camera), and I don't feel like I'm missing much, but all people are not the same. :-)

I bought my N8 second hand, it was already a few years old, scratched and a screw was missing like someone was repairing it or trying to open it (I got another screw)... Two and a half years later, with almost 300 apps in it, after thousands of photos taken, it still works. I only had to replace the battery, found one on GearBest for 3 Euro or so, works fine. It's a Nokia. Right now it's 35 days since the last reboot (I have an app called "UpTime" which tells me that).

Or you might try to find a used one with minimal signs of use, for a fair price.

Nokia N8 has very little support now, and is missing some internet-related apps, but if you just need a good phone that will serve you well, go for it. I wouldn't change my N8 for any Android. If I knew what you need a phone for, I could give you better advice. :-)
Hello friends. Advice me buying nokia n8 or Android, which one will help me in present and in the future. I m having a strong interest in the nokia n8.
No words for dis super supreme phone..I love my n8.. using Android samsung but won't let go my n8.. camera is supperbbb. . wish the screen wz little bigger.. bt it's my primary phn n note is secondary..that explains everything .. respect for the vision which created dis phn in 2010.. still going strong...
Oh I currently have Asus zenfone 2 with 4GB of ram, still I have my eyes on my dad's old phone (Nokia n8). Some day I'll buy it too. And I love the way symbian works with 256mb of ram and 68Hz processor. My Nokia c6-01 was my favorite. For some reasons including no future I forced myself to Android.
Awesome phone using n8 since 2010 still using. Such a superb phone that can be used as navigator, car stereo , personal media player , for file transfer from flash device , divx player , projection via a/v or hdmi ,fm transmission , office support can even connect a large keyboard for easy typing , mouse for easy navigation , camera that can even challenge a digital camera , overall 10/10 . Even an office presentation can be done with it. I love my n8
I used this phone for 5 years now and still perfectly working, amazing phone though it is a Symbian OS phone, I don't want to let go this phone the camera and video quality is perfect. thanks Nokia.
i m still using it since Aug.2011 loving this phone . great phone with great features like 12mp xenon flash.(xenon flash is better then LED flash) FM transmitter( with this i can p music to car's FM), GPS map (go the camera setting, 'ON' save location info. U would find that all of your photos taken from N8 will show in MAP from where u took it . this feature is not in even i phone's also . Data back up is very easy .
I have n8 since 2010.i have bought and shell dozens of android phones but none of them could ever come even close to n8 camera guality.it is still in use,and i always carry it together with my note...respect
awesome mobile ever made in world...there r no words to admire it...till now there is no mobile to compare with nokia n8..
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.
