got my own N8 2 weeks ago and upgraded to Anna immediately. Despite the critism, i still find the phone awesome. Very responsive touchscreen, very sturdy phone, very nice camera, excellent browsing experience (i use Opera with Wifi everyday, 15-20hrs non stop. Battery life is ok despite d fact dat it s a smartphone (Trust nokia when it comes to sturdiness and battery performance) Android is better than symbian, True! but symbian-Anna aint bad at all. Havnt got any prob with it (despite usin it nonstop for 2wks). I neva regretted purshasing this. I luv N8. Guess some people should take time to get used to the device other than complaining. U gonna find out dat the answer to ur complaints are located just in the device. Currently pasting this from my N8. I recommed to anyone.
oh its a great phone. Its camera is great, battery is also great i think yet symbian is better than android only applicable for nokia n8

You can update your N8 to Belle officially from February onwards when Nokia start rolling out the update. The usual method for updating is through Nokia Suite on a PC or Over The Air (OTA) via the phones update feature.
If you can't wait that long you can install the leaked version available now by visiting http://www.nokiatek.com/?p=644 and following the tutorial put together by Shayesta Miah.
All the best.

The N8 would be the better option of the two phones you mentioned, even though the 701 has twice the RAM and a 1 GHz CPU. The camera on the N8 is still unbeatable, but the default web browser on the N8 is still next to useless though. That being said it will get a new browser with the Belle update sometime next month onwards and in the meantime Opera mobile browser can be used.
You don't need to worry about security when using the internet as Symbian is the safest and most secure mobile OS without having to install any security software (which I always discourage as we don't need it with Symbian).
To be honest, I'm not impressed at all with the 701 so I can only recommend the N8.
All the best.

What has probably happened is that the battery has drained completely and now refuses to charge. This is a known issue with Lithium-Ion batteries but you might still be able to get it working again. You can try plugging your charger into another Nokia phone for a minute or two and then quickly plug that charger into your N8, then leave it for several minutes to see if it starts charging again. This is known as Jump charging and has been known to work for some people. Alternatively, you can connect the charger and connect the USB lead to a PC at the same time to try and force it to start charging.
If none of that works then a replacement battery will set you back around £16 or £17 which is around 205 ZAR's.
