hey, are you guys happy with the speed? 701 is faster than n8 according to specs but is the 701 camera gud for day to day use. ? I am not that much into photography(but would prefer macro shots)? But the n8 is only 4k costlier than 701 in my country?

It's actually only 23 months old, not two and a half years.
It's impossible to overclock the CPU to 1.3 GHz because the hardware just can't cope with that clock speed.
I'm not sure what you're referring to regarding Elop but have you seen the two new Lumia phones? The 920 looks and sounds amazing. I know what I'll be getting when it's finally released later this year, the Lumia 920.
I use this phone 1 year it's exelent phone. After belle will be some new update.
Itis picture quality is sogood but it has many hanging problems.
symbian fan, 10 Sep 2012Hi carlo ! How is you ! Today i updated my friend nokia n8 :-) everything was fine :-) but we ... moreI know that this happens when the device is destinated for use (and imported originaly) for a country, lets say for example italy. After that the device is imported to your country. The shop that you have bought the device instal (for free) the Arabic language. If you proceed to an update, Nokia "recognize" the device as italian (which is logical) indipendently if you are using N8 in Dubai in Australia or India etc... As a result, Nokia will send you the italian update Belle version. In my country (Greece) Nokia Care told me they can install the language i want but not for free (15 euro). Usually the ("good")shops that sell this kind of devices, if an update is needed, do it for free. Hope to have helped. Have a nice day.

(in other comment section if i ask what is or what are they answer back, "google will help you!" lol)
i expected that nokia n8 got 100,000 total comments before the end of 2015!
I have been checking on this phone for months, reading the comments on this forum. Where I am, I would have had to buy a locked one and I wanted nothing but an unlocked one (all sold out). I got a steal of a deal while on holidays (last one that the store was eager to get rid of). I am really happy with this phone and the great holiday photos I got from it. I think it is well worth the price. It looks real elegant, feels sturdy and works like a dream.

Ok, i haven't have this icon blinking problems since phones like nokia 3310. Maybe you have this old problem and you have your sim full. Try this and let us know if this was the problem: enter messages/options(the vertical bars icon from right)/view folders/options/Sim messages... see what happens there. If you have many and need them, copy them to phone memory and delete all. See if the icon is still there.

I cannot figure what could cause this. Normally the languages are in the firmware (ok, in rofs2 from the firmware, but this small file does not change automatically). Maybe your product code does not support your country? Where did you bought this phone? Did you updated without problems until now? You can also read this, apparently you are not the only one with this problem.
2.5 yrs old phone. And still so popular. Feels good. Proud owner of Nokia N8. Still love it. Fully satisfied. If Nokia upgrades its processor and ram like that of Nokia 701 to 1.3 ghz. Its gonna beat many of the high end smartphones in the market. But poor Nokia will not do this. Feels said. What elop its CEO has done.
