george_k, 25 Jan 2012In my opinion you're comparing 2 dissimilar models. N8 when released (1 year ago) was the flag... morei dont agree. N8 is slow for webbrowsing, the 701 has much faster processor. 701 is still slow compared to N9 and so on but much faster than N8. As he said, he dont care about the camera. The 701 has FM transmitter and everything that the N8 has, and it has a IPS display. IPS has some advantages over AMOLED, the only thing thats really good on amoled is actually the contrast.
From the gsmarena review of 701: "The IPS technology promises 160-degree viewing angles and for the most part delivers. There's a slight but noticeable loss of contrast when you tilt the phone, but there's no color shift."
Surely 701 is the one to get, its both faster and has a better and brighter display, and still its cheaper. Pay less and get more.
EDIT: Ok i see now that N8 is cheaper than i thought, a bit below 701. So in value for money they are quite equal then. Still, if you dont need the very best camera then 701 is the obvious choice (for me) out of the two.
Is there another easy way to upgrade my n8 to symbian belle? Thanks

Karl, 24 Jan 2012Hi everybody i'm planning to buy a new phone and i like the Nokia N8 and The Nokia 701 i... moreSuper built phone i am using since 1 year . No problem at all. Camera Cant be compared to any phone.
I've noticed something interesting. I usually have got screen saver on. When my n8 lays on my desk the clock is constantly on. I also have got case cover for it. Whet I remove phone from this case, i've noticed, that the screen saver is of, but as soon as a light falls on light sensor the screen saver turns on. I think it's interesting power saving option.

Whats the use of a SGS2 three years from now? paperweight?
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2012what about whatsapp on belle!?I have the leaked belle on and whats app works fine,
I read the news about skype on the n8fanclub,
it is news from nokia so it is true, and im sure video calling will be much appreated, and as for the widget not sure how it will look....
ps oh I only tried whats app once so I could be wrong am not sure cause I use fring,
to use fring just log off every time on the leaked belle otherwise you will not be able to use it, and you will have to flash it again....
Karl, 24 Jan 2012Hi everybody
i'm planning to buy a new phone
and i like the Nokia N8 and The Nokia 701 i... moreIn my opinion you're comparing 2 dissimilar models. N8 when released (1 year ago) was the flagship of Nokia. The 701 is not. A fair comparison would be N8 vs N9 or lumia 800). The behavior of N8 as a phone and its built-construction quality is far superior to the 701 (you can look at the articles gsm_arena for the 2 models). Regarding the operating system both are using belle. And one last very imp. thing: N8 is made in Finland! 701 is not. (I bought N8 in Dec 2011).
Have a good day...
yipeey! yiheey! . . .thanks skype. . .badly needed video call on skype for n8

tonmoy from bd, 24 Jan 2012guys, i am confused between nokia n8 and sgs2. Can't make up my mind which one to choose? I re... moreDepends on how you use your phone. If you are active, and you don't want to think about how and where you leave your phone, or how to keep it with you while running/biking.. then the N8 is the clear choice. Not even going to mention the superior camera.
If you want a toy to play games on, and watch movies.. the GS2 is your phone.
Karl, 24 Jan 2012Hi everybody
i'm planning to buy a new phone
and i like the Nokia N8 and The Nokia 701 i... moreOverall, the 701 is a better phone. These are the specs.
N8: 3.5'' AMOLED Gorilla Glass / 640x360
701: 3.5'' AMOLED IPS / 640x360
NB: N8 has Gorilla Glass (scratch resistant)while 701 is IPS - InPlane Switching. 701 has brighter screen but nt scratch resistant.
N8: 12MP Carl Zeiss Autofocus with Xenon Flash
701: 8MP Fixed Focus Dual LED Flash
N8: Symbian Anna
701: Symbian Belle
NB: Belle is more recent but N8 will be upgradeable to Belle very soon.
So N8 has better camera but that's about it. I'll advise you go for 701 mostly because of the faster processor and more RAM.
guys, i am confused between nokia n8 and sgs2. Can't make up my mind which one to choose? I really need suggestion. Looking forward to any replay. Thanks.

This sounds like the memory location where your photos are stored (either E: Mass storage or F: SD card) has become corrupted. This can happen when the phone is connected to a PC in Mass storage mode and is removed without first using the "Safely remove hardware" feature in Windows. You'll most likely need to perform a *#7370# reset to reformat the E: drive (if that's where the pictures were stored) or just simply re-format the SD card if they were stored on there, without the need for a *#7370# reset.
Dear N8 lovers, i too love my N8. Most of you worried about hanging. While hanging, all told abt going for hard reset by pressing 4 keys simultsneously.No need. My N8 also rarely hanged ,tat time i pressed both POWER KEY &MENU KEY few seconds for restart.simple method without loosing anything. Plz post feedbacks. Regards, Imayam,TAMIL NADU
