Hi there! My NOKIA N8 still the best option by far. No thoughts of buying anything Android related. However, i have a lil concern
a) my N8 Adobe PDF has stopped working. How do i resolve that?
b) secondly, my shorcut for music search is also not working. If i use the shortcut 'search' for images, videos, etc, it is working fine. If i search for music (mp3),it does not respond. Help me out please.
Supremo, 07 Dec 2014Unbelievable but true. I got the 5.1 MB update for the Nokia Store today . Just updated but I ... moreAh yes, I see what you mean. I haven't seen a theme with a transparent menu bottom bar yet so I guess it's not possible. What makes me angry are theme makers who don't make the bottom bar transparent (which _is_ possible) even in the home screen, so when I turn the camera on there's a non-transparent stripe at the bottom covering a part of the frame. I guess it's not a problem for other Belle phones, but for the N8 it surely is. I haven't seen a transparent theme yet, definitely. Sorry.
As for AMOLED, I actually use a theme with a dark brown background, mostly because I use my phone a lot at night and if the theme is completely black I don't see where my thumb is too well. :-D
As for the Store update, the guy from AllAboutSymbian is trying to find out what it is about too and there might be an article about it on Monday. I actually used Twitter to read that, which doesn't happen too often. :-)
MdN8, 06 Dec 2014Believe or not, Nokia Store got a 5MB update yesterday - but nobody knows what's new about it.... moreUnbelievable but true. I got the 5.1 MB update for the Nokia Store today . Just updated but I don't see any improvements except the Store offers smooth and faster navigation now. It's worth the update. As you know, Nokia X2-00 is having 240x320 resolution and theme there on the forum is made for 320x240 resolution so it won't fit well on the X2-00 but since it's a Nokia, it will at least work. Try it on your Nokia X2-00 and you'll get an idea of what kind of theme I am looking for my Nokia N8. This is a fully transparent theme where the wallpaper can be seen in most of the user interface and except the icons, all the elements are transparent through which you can see the wallpaper. I want a theme like that for my Nokia N8 if possible :-) Nokia Evolve theme is AMOLED friendly because it's a black theme so the on screen buttons on the menu won't be transparent.

Anonymous, 06 Dec 2014Augh. My brain is all over the place.

Well if it's eBay you should be protected somehow. And if I remember correctly you were looking for the pink version - in that case you're probably color blind and it's all the same to you. :-))) Kidding! :-D
Anyhow, I got mine used, and I'm probably the 3rd owner. Took me a long while to find one at a price I could afford, a few went away right before I called, and finally I found one in a city next to mine. The case was scratched and a screw was missing near the hdmi port (I got it later, and the case didn't get any new scratches since) but I was tired of looking and... On one side a lovely dark grey Nokia N8, on the other side some pieces of paper with numbers of them - Just give me my phone already!!! >:-)
For all I know it could have been opened or repaired in the past, but luckily, 20 months later and still no problems. The thing is really built to last (knocks on wood).

From [censored] color to [censored] color. Shhhhhh. Same images. Same ad. Except for the COLOR aspect. hahaha. And nope, they're not stock.

Well, better luck next time. :-) Where is the seller located? I hope you don't get one of those with upgraded firmware but no radio transmitter. :-)

The new ad for the cheapo N8 I was targetting was reposted but seller changed to a different colored one.
Same ad, different n8. Lost my faith.
I should know. I refresh the effin advertisement every other day. Ha.

Some say that some paid apps are now free - don't know about that either. :-)
I'm thinking of getting some cheap Android just for Skype calls from home, but can't afford it right now. Apart from that, the N8 still does all that I need. :-)
Got your theme from UC forum, I'll try it on my X2-00 later. :-)
What do you mean by "fully transparent"? I have a 3KB "theme" which has no elements whatsoever, so if you use SisContents or Theme Graphics Switcher to add new elements or icons to it, and install it, you will get the default Nokia Evolve theme with no changes except the new elements. Is that what you need? If it is, I can give you a link to Zedge where I uploaded it, just let me know. :-)
Been using Nokia N8 since June 2014 alongside an Android phone especially for apps. It has its share of goods and bads. Already hacked it because sooner or later, Nokia Store will be replaced with Opera Store, as per rumors. Had a Nokia X2-01, for which I created my first theme thanks to MdN8. It can be found in Java > Theme section of UC Forum by username Shivam88. I have been looking for a fully transparent theme for my Nokia N8 Belle Refresh. Tried many but most weren't fully transparent. So if anyone knows of a full transparent theme especially made for Symbian Belle, please provide the link here. Thanks in advance :-)
Hello, why n8 is again gaining popularity... 13% right now? It is ahead of lumia 1020, 1520 and many other lumias... Amazing?
Aadrian, 04 Dec 2014Seems like the N8's popularity is once again rising last days. Yes, 14% right now. Like they are expecting something...
On a side note, right now I have 243 apps installed in my N8. That includes the app that counted them. :-) Works with no problems whatsoever, the other day I rebooted it after 14 days, just to clean the memory a bit.
