master_boy, 27 Apr 2012the N8 here in the philippines is cheaper than nokia 701! From 14500 to 14700
Nokia Lumia 8... moreIf you type in Google for 750 MYR to PHP it will reply with "750 Malaysian ringgits = 10441.0516 Philippine pesos". That's nearly the same as Nokia 610 in your country.
I think 14700PHP for the Nokia 701 seems to be the price you get if you buy at Nokia Stores. Try looking at the smaller shops.
In Malaysia there are 2 categories for phones, Original sets and AP sets. Both are approved by the government but the AP sets only have 2 years store warranty. If the store goes bankrupt or closes up then you will have to pay full for repairs. Original sets have 1 year Nokia Care warranty which is better but a bit too short IMHO.
Check out the latest prices at this page:
I've never bought anything at this store but I regularly look it up for the latest prices.
the N8 here in the philippines is cheaper than nokia 701! From 14500 to 14700
Nokia Lumia 800 cost P21500
Nokia Lumia 610 cost P10300
Time to try Windows Phone now dear!
s at ya, 26 Apr 2012thanks for the reply dude.. i did google on this.. didnt intend to spam but i did expect to se... morein Malaysia the 701 is 30% cheaper than the n8. it's about myr750 with 2 years store warranty, not the usual Nokia Care warranty. which is why i'm heavily biased to the 701.
another point to consider is the 701 has the same internals as the 808. same CPU, gpu, ram. only difference is the camera and screen. so if there's going to be any firmware updates in the future the 701 would probably get it too.

I have been using the nokia n8 for a while now and I m impressed with some of the features this phone has like 12 mp camera, navigation system, video recording. but when it come to the things like social networking softwares this phone is nowhere near those other smartphones for the same price. the phone had front facing camera but you can not use it in any social networking sites, the HDMI out does not work when the phone is updated to SYMBIAN BELLE. and after upgrading the phone to symbian belle also reduces the batter life.

I'm a complete shutterbug so its camera of 12 mp is very good for me.Wherever I go I usually take a picture and share it to my facebook page. It also has a good battery life and you can use a lot of application at the same time. So convenient!!!

Whatever is included in custom firmwares won't necessarily make it into an official update. The word from Nokia is that there will be an update to Belle, but no word on what that update will include other than bug fixes and performance tweaks. There may be an updated browser and new widgets too.
That to me means it is a minor update. A major update would be an update to Carla but as we know, that's not going to happen with the N8 due to it's low end processor.

After very long time when N8 users have been waiting for Anna than Belle and still for Skype supporting VIDEO calls I lost patience!Millions NOKIA customers have been asking Nokia and Skype ... why not and when we will get update and we have been ignored for very long time !!! So if appreciation customers is totall ignoration and gona say ''f..k you Nokia'' there are others to appreciate loyal customers even with to answer them questions !!! Bye bye ...

There's probably a better answer just a google search away but I'll take the time to type this down just to stop you from spamming.
It all boils down to this: Do you really, really like to take close-up/macro photos (less than 40 cm away)?
If yes, get the N8.
If no, get the 701. Forget about everything else, if you're not going to take macro shots you should get the 701.
I'm a happy N8 owner. But I don't take 50+ meaningful, memorable photos every day. My life is way too boring for that. And I don't make use of the built-in HDMI that much either, only during gatherings.
What I do with the phone on a constant basis is surf the web, play hd games, read pdf/epub books, etc. Basically, I do stuff that would work a lot better on a more powerful processor with more ram.
