Have been using this phone 1 year + Awesome phone and getting better after the Anna Upgrade followed by Belle. Drop the phone many times (hardcore usage) it's still working perfectly. love the metallic body and amoled screen. scratch resist screen and i did not use any screen protector from day 1 and the screen still looks great. For longer battery usage without any power available i suggest to switch to Power Saver Mode. It last u much more longer even with lots of 3G connection. Lots of Apps and widget at Nokia Store. Great Phone to have. i call this an under dog phone.
I upgraded my N8 to Belle ... everything went smoothly and I am loving it ... Thanks Nokia ....
I noticed that my n8 gets really heated up after using it in 3G mode for few minutes. Also, in that mode, my battery drains less than 1hr of use!!
Nokia Belle FP2 appears in test results
26 March, 2012
Owners of newer Symbian phones got some good news recently when Nokia announced that they'll be getting a Feature Pack 1 update for their smartphones. They might be in for some more good news - results on the HTML5 Test list results for "Nokia Belle FP 2 (S60 5.5)".
The FP1 update is featured on the Nokia 808 PureView, but will make its way to the 603, 700 and 701, with the last two getting a CPU speed bump. It's not clear what we might expect from FP2 (it's not official), but Nokia seems to have done a lot of work on the browser.
The Belle FP1 update gives a big boost to the browser in terms of compatibility - it jumps from 157 (+ 7 bonus points) for vanilla Belle to 212 (+ 9 bonus points) for FP1 and higher still with FP2 - 242 (+ 9 bonus points).
For comparison, Android 2.3 scores 181+1, Android 4.0 does 256+3, Windows Phone 7.5 Mango scores very low at 141+5, while Mobile Safari on iOS 5 is king of the stock browsers with a score of 305+9.
The device running Belle FP2 is listed as Nokia 701, so there's a good chance that the devices that are getting FP1 will get FP2 as well.
Anyway, a post on Nokia Beta Labs caught our attention too - it marks the end of the beta period for Universal Search. It's a handy feature that looks through contacts, emails, maps and so on (similar but better than the old Search app found in older Symbians).
What's interesting about it is now that the beta is over, you'd expect to get the release version of the app - but it's nowhere to be found in the Nokia Store. It's quite a coincidence - the appearance of another Belle feature pack and the disappearance of Universal Search - so that's one feature that might be headed to FP2.
By the way, that HTML5 Test results page is very interesting and mentions a couple of big names - Windows Phone 8 and Tizen 1. That, of course, is flimsy proof of their existence, but still.
n8, 26 Mar 2012I Got From Symbian Developer Official Site.give the link of developer's site, is there any date mentioned for release of belle fp1. Of course they should be issue the update, but when?

n8, 26 Mar 2012Good News For All Symbian Belle User Belle Fp1 Will get All Older Device Also Get fp1 :)Who told u?
n8, 26 Mar 2012Good News For All Symbian Belle User Belle Fp1 Will get All Older Device Also Get fp1 :)When Belle Feature Pack-1 will get. Nokia already committed a blunder by releasing belle. To fix this blunder and keep N8 user, they should release every week one or two small small updates, like camera, music player, video player, video editor, voice dialling. One by one so that customer will think nokia is doing something. Now N8 user some of them trying to sell and some trying to install delight belle or anna. Nokia is releasing Feature Pack-2 to new models. See link is here on gsmarena news on the top. This pack is for nokia 808, 603, 700 and 701. N8 is nowhere mentioned. It is already late. Strategy adopted by nokia is negative approach. How much time will they take. Whatever is fixed issue the update. What for they are waiting. Then work for the next fix and deliver it when it is fixed. Nokia already lost so many client, the more the delay more will loose.

Hi Dr. Gaz,
You guys are advising to install Delight Belle 5.1. It is ok. But when I am trying to install Nokia Phoenix service software 2010.08.004.41526 as soni mentioned. First of all computer is giving warning, this software will damage your computer now or in future. There are two options, cancel or continue any way. I clicked continue. Now it is asking Nokia Service Tool Driver and Nokia connectivity cable driver. Which are already installed in my computer. Moreover, when I am clicking install both these drivers. Then after installing these. Dongle error comes. Please insert proper dongle or configure dongle driver. It has two options Retry and Finish. When I click Retry nothing happened, when I click finish, this message comes, InstallShield wizard completec, the wizard was interrupted before Phoenix Service Software could be completely installed. Your system has has not been modified. To install this program at a later time, please run the installation again. Click finish to exit the wizard.
Now I restarted my computer and tried 4 times. I have Windows XP SP2 32 bit and latest Nokia suite 3.3.89.
Soni had written about this phoenix in needed files. But, I think your phoenix is very old. Can you tell me which phoenix is compatible.
