I'm commenting here after a heavy usage of my beloved Nokia n8 for more than one and half years..
1) if you don't use a custom firmware in your n8 i feel really sorry for you (use delight 5.2 then you'll see what I'm talking about)
2) some guys here still haven't even heard about 'sound quality mod', 'photo quality improvement mods' etc. I can't even think of using my n8 without mods...! (after sound improvement mod my n8 produced great sound at 50% volume which my friend's galaxy s2 couldn't provide even at 100% level..
3) I never use Nokia default browser except for exceptional cases because it really sucks..! But opera mini is very Good and I'm typing this too using opera.. (i can open as much as 30 tabs without having issues)
4) some guys still don't know if you use 'light control' app you can increase your n8 screen brightness as much as galaxy s line..
5) many Nokia geeks know 'automatic call recording without beep', 'install server hack for any app installation' etc but ordinary people don't have a clue...
6) i always use 'camera pro' for photography and results are just stunning due to customizable saturation and contrast... (i like vivid colors) but people who are using default app think that's the best and ultimately get upset..
7) many people ask about video calling over internet.. Why don't you use fring..? I use whatsapp for chatting and sending files etc. Skype for audio calling, fring for video calling, fmobi and gravity for facebook etc..
8) default email client is not best in class but does the job Ok..
9) phone is slow when you compare it with galaxy and nobody can deny that..
10) battery life is unbelievable.. I always feel pity about my sgs 2 friend who usually has his phone plugged in to current..
11) i know.. Many of you don't even know that we can change theme effects of our n8s.. Poor you guys.. Just try jinhao effects and you will not be able to take your eyes away from the screen..
All you have to do is 'just Google' and you will find all the above and make your device a wonderful one..
Have a nice time guys...

Ttt, 31 Aug 2012After a sucessful update to nokia belle last night, today im so disapointed findin out that my... moreHy there. if the advices under me don't work, then the problem is because of the installed softwares. Unfortunatly, if you want belle to work propely, you will need to format the phone. I would recomand to you to backup only the contacts, messages, notes, calendar notes and bookmarks, if you have them. Also, you maybe wanna to save everything from mass memory to pc. Then enter the settings/ phone/ phone management/ factory settings/ delete data and restore. This can take allot, so dont panic. You will see only nokia startup screen for some minutes. After all is done, format the mass memory, then reinstall the firmware. If you have memory card, take it out, before this and see if the phone is not freazing anymore, then the mem card is to blame so that iswhat needs to be formatted.
