this is very good camera that designed for communication via G2 and G3.its a very wonderfull camera but its not a very good smartphone.its hang and its not good for a this wonderfull camera. I love it , because i need a very good camera (it can be with me all of the time).between all of the smartphones , i love nokia N8 and apple.
I am currently using the N8 loads of problems with the phone . Software has been upgraded as well from the service center . Phone Hangs , restarts , network issues. Have given the phone back to Nokia to have it checked . Has anyone had the same issues . What can i do the phone is within its warranty .
The N8 is great but there are some problems.
Here are some infos about the features..
+Xvid & DivX support
+12MP Camera (Video & Pics)
-CPU (too weak)
-No Video Light
-Speaker (when laying on table,barely hearable)
-Youtube (Playback of Clips Cracks)
Waiting for Belle. The suspense is killing me. Hope when it finally gets here disappointment doesnt kill me. Waiting for Bell. When will the Belle toll?

You may be unfortunate enough to have killed the battery. The N8's battery is of the Li-ion type which, if allowed to drain completely can stay in a permanent flat state.
You can try to charge it by plugging it in to a wall charger and leaving it for a while to see if it starts charging or, if you have another Nokia device plug that one in to the charger for a couple of minutes then quickly swap that phone for your N8 and see if it starts charging. What this does is force the charger to pump current into your N8.
If none of that works you have three further options. If your phones battery is still under warranty you can have it replaced for free at a Nokia care point or pay for a replacement if it's out of warranty. The third option is to try the three fingered suicide to try and revive the phone by pressing volume down + camera key + menu key and pressing power button until the Nokia handshake appears. Be warned though that this will completely wipe the phones internal memory and you will lose maps, Ovi store and some pre-installed widgets. You will have to visit a Nokia care point to have your phone re-flashed to get those back and there may be a small fee for that service so this method should only be used as a last resort.

You'll find that Belle has been coded to make use of C: memory as virtual RAM to increase the performance of the phone. The N8 will still only have 256 MB of physical RAM which cannot be increased.

1 This is a hardware issue since the N8's launch.
3 Red eye is caused by the Xenon flash being too close to the camera lens. No amount of firmware updates will improve the night video issue because the phone doesn't have a video light.
5 The CPU is fixed at 680 MHz and I doubt it will ever be overclocked. In fact, the processor isn't the main culprit causing the phone to slow down. It's the low amount of system RAM which is only 256 MB.
