Of course N8 is excellent piece of hardware but multimedia sofrware and some other problems in belle is a big problem. Nokia may be declared 808. But they should keep in mind, it is majority of n8 users who will buy 808. So, without satisfying n8 users, how they will make sale. I am n8 user, I will only buy 808 when n8 will be working good. Otherwise on paper n8 is great. So, I will wait 15 days more, if nothing update comes out for belle, feature pack 1 or so then other companies are not bad. Secondly, nokia should keep in mind the interest of users and those wants to switch back to anna, give them a link to do so. But this time nokia is not listening its users, resulting will loose the users. I and my nephew we both have n8, now we have to see which phone to buy next.
AnonD-9901, 02 Mar 2012I can't wait!
My N8 is coming!!! =DWhere are you from rafael? the N8 was released ages ago, I have one from australia and to tell you frankly its not worth it... too bad, I have been using nokia ever since. I am trying to get rid of my phone but no one wants to buy it. The belle update has been danggled to us like a carrot on a stick ever since and nokia is just not soing anything about it even their website sucks and is full of wrong/
Guys. Scratch my previous comment about the avis not playing. It was just human error from my side... The files were only partially copied to my phone before it was removed from my pc.
Fellow N8ers, I have just reflashed my N8 with the OFFICIAL BELLE and I think I have just stumbled upon a new bug / glitch in BELLE, my divx/xvid avi's are no longer playable in BELLE. These are the same avis that i have been able to play in ANNA. Anyone else encounter this problem?
[deleted post]You do realize that the devices you are mentioning are way younger than our N8? Right? This is just what NOKIA mean when they build FLAGSHIP devices. Nokia may take a licking but they keep on ticking. High QUALITY = high votes...
AnonD-44602, 01 Mar 2012Belle v111.030.0609 out now guy's maybe they fix the problem :) that's official version from beggining of roll-out 07.02.

from what you said i suppose you must take your N8 to the shop where you have bought it. I think this problem appears when for example if i buy an N8 (i am from Greece -Athens)- not the N8 greek-import, but for example an N8 from Germany or Italy or UK in which (the shop who import the devices - not the greek nokia care) install the greek language. If i update (by my self), the update will be in the language of the original N8 version (uk,italian,germany etc) but not in the Greek language which is removed. In general the importer tells you when you buy the device, that in this case they will install for free any update to your language. From what you said, i only know this case. In alternative you take it to nokia care for update but you will pay (15 Euros costs here in Greece). If your device is an official import to your country, it should be updated without problem, removing the arabic language, so go to nc.

The firmware changed the fps from 25 (anna) to 30 fps (belle) for video recording. And i suspect this change also affected the autofocus when taking photos with belle especially in dark and lowlight conditions. I did a side by side comparrison and noticed that darker areas of my snaps were less crisp and contained more grain than in anna(25.7).

I doubt if an update will affect hardware performance; the camera quality should be the same presumably. Did you try comparing shots in the same conditions for Belle and Anna??? I tweeted Steve of All About Symbian; he reaffirmed that the camera should not be affected. I thought the intuitive UI will satisfy you???

No harm done. I do not condone hacking, and besides my previous post to mick has been deleted so I guess no other people will be seeing the downgrade steps and tools.
How has your experience been of BELLE? I love the UI it's slick and fast and I have not run into any of the glitches other users have mentioned. I still think that photo quality (auto focus issue) has gone down after the BELLE update in dark and night shots. That's why i downgraded my firmware to anna(25.7) mea12 variant.
AnonD-15087, 29 Feb 2012HI Jaydicee,
My N8 is a swap device and my product code is 059B656, but before it was 0599... moreHi HolyN8.
I am not sure whether updating, downgrading or flashing can change your product code... But you should be able to install another region specific firmware on your phone but not through NOKIA / OVI SUITE. I have read that the swap devices should only be taken to Nokia Care Points to have their firmware updated. On the next part of your question i honestly do not know if flashing your phone with phoenix could void your warranty.
