After waiting so long for anna update gotta say I am disappointed by the bugs and lack of fluidity. Badly needs kinetic scrolling and the update messed up my music albums. The Os feels a little incomplete. Glad for the camera software update and portrait qwerty though. Nokia, please get it right the next time

I am not... moreGret man.. A Fair enough Analysis.
I liked Nokia due to there durability and passion for mobile technology to give a crafted device to the market.
But sorry !!!! now I myself after Using N73(200 MHz,64Mb ram) and now N8 never give a nokia smartphone advice to anybody.
It was never a case why Symbian is laggy, its simple,It can be rectified (as belle now).
The concern is WHY WHY WHY after paying a big amount for a device i get a under rated CPU and RAM.
Which just kills my N8. We literally don't know how many Updates our N8 can withstand...
I Love my N8, but not satishfied with Nokia(my SMARTPHONE is not FutureProof)
Njoy the N8...

As a true direct comparison the Apple iPhone 3G and the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic are evenly matched in terms of hardware specifications. But, in terms of actual performance the iPhone is streets ahead of the 5800. My own 5800 was an embarrassment next to my friends iPhone 3G and all thanks to S60 5th edition.
Symbian should have been abandoned a long time ago instead of Nokia trying to get it up to par with Apple OS and Android, which they have failed to do so far. Belle may be there final attempt to bring Symbian into the 21st century but ultimately it's irrelevant since their main focus is on WP 7.5 Mango.
All the best.
Hello ...can anyone who willing to tell me when the symbian belle release? ... I want to know immediately ..thank Q
I have always been a Symbian fanboy. No matter how it failed and how people bash it.
I am not here to troll Android, iOS, Blackberry OS, iOS or WP7.
Just sharing something...
Android, iOS and even MeeGo all are power packed OSs. They are immensely smooth and has what it takes to satisfy any user.
And yeah 90% now thinks Symbian is no where near. But those 90% have actually used S60v5 or N8 PR 1.2.
S60v5 had really destroyed Symbian to the core. People just got the impression that Symbian = Laggy.
Nokia had limited it's hardware to 434Mhz and 128MB ram in those devices which resulted in epic "FAIL" user experience.
And during the days of 5800 and n97, Nokia was like a GOD mobile manufacturer and majority of the people trusting Nokia bought those devices and got disappointed horribly. This lead to mass destruction of Nokia Reputation and Symbian Platform.
Symbian was super feature packed but the functions were not implemented well. While Android and iOS had very less functions but what they had were implemented very very well.
Nokia came up with N900 which had the best potential at the time as it was super smooth at that time (Maemo was rocking!). It had everything. If importance was paid to it. It could be a game changer. But Nokia never really paid attention to maemo and even now to MeeGo (N9 Maemo6 Harmattan/MeeGo). Nokia being attached to symbian just ditched every other idea and innovation that could hamper symbian development. Symbian was a religion in Nokia for years until Steven Elop arrived.
(So Nokia fans who were angry of Nokia for ditching symbian and adopting WP7, do see this. See how Nokia did a lot to help Symbian development)
It seemed Nokia was helpless. Don't know if programming/coding Symbian was so difficult or they had closed their eyes for a while. They tried to put the best hardware in N97 like FM Transmitter, Excellent body, cam etc but failed to put A good CPU, RAM and GPU"
Nokia seems, they had learned a lot if you compare N8 to N97.
They were too late but they realized their mistake.
See Samsung Omnia 8910HD. See it's Homescreen, Task Manager and stuff. If Samsung could do it with a S60v5. What was Nokia doing?
Symbian was no doubt heavily uplifted by Nokia and really Nokia behaved like a father of Symbian OS making it a super popular OS during the reign of N95. but they were also the ones to kill it by making N97.
Finally they released N8. They put all MeeGo/Maemo plans aside for it. just for the sake of Symbian so that it might be popular and also to boost sales of N8. N8 was really Nokia's first step to intelligence after 2+ years of failure. But they should have given MeeGo/maemo a fair chance. If they could have given. If N9 was released during the time of iPhone 3GS and they would support it with one major update a year. Nokia could rule today. Nokia put all hopes on symbian that didn't work out though they had success with Symbian^3.
Symbian^3 was heavily revamped in terms of speed. N8 when it was released had the BEST GPU at that time compared to any phone of that time. many few people do know that. But had it a 1Ghz A8 with 512 MB RAM, people would get heavily attracted to it. Yeah and ofcourse, they should have introduced it to the markets with Symbian Belle and not with PR 1.1/1.2/Anna coz if you want to make a device cool and new, you need to make it look cool (The UI) and you do need to change the visuals to make it look different.
Who would have liked Windows 8 with super advanced functions but with the UI of Windows Classic (ex Win 98) ??
Symbian Belle is moving to markets with 701,700,603.
Nokia 701. Great specs! 1Ghz CPU and 512MB RAM with GPU as powerfull as 4xThe_GPU_of_N8!
And most importantly Symbian Belle. Some of you might still think why couldn't they put a DUAL CORE 1.5Ghz and 1GB ram etc!
But the fact is, it's not running Android or iOS. Symbian has never been Resource hungry and is still the best OS in terms of resource optimization and Battery life*
My Nokia N8 with Symbian Belle (Beta version!) is no doubt working too smooth if you compare it to a same android device with 680Mhz and 256MB RAM.
Now SGS II runs super smooth! yeah But it has 1.2GHz dual core with almost 1 GB RAM. So if Symbian Belle on my N8 is running a little slower than SGS II, it isn't Symbian's fault. Had Nokia N8 the same specs as SGSII, it would had done the same. Nokia gave N8 a mind blowing 12MP cam but didn't give it enough power to compete with modern devices.
My point is, if Symbian with such low spec hardware still comes almost near to the top devices running on kickas* 1.2Ghz/1.5Ghz chips, how can it be called laggy, faulty and fail os?
And also do note the fact that when we compare OSs, we must always take the latest versions in regard. You can't just take out your 14k 5800(s60v5 - 1st Symbian touch based os) and compare it to 44k iPhone4 (4th generation of iOS).
The comparison between both the OS would be only fair if both the OS were running on same hardware.
LOL if you compare Win7 on a 1Ghz dual core with a windows98 running on 2.56Ghz i3. obviously, Windows98 will work faster.
So Symbian got everything it needs to get to the top on condition that Nokia provides it with ultimate hardware as seen on the latest devices.
If Nokia release at least one 1.2Ghz dual core with 1GB ram and a modern high speed GPU with Symbian Belle. We can truly compare it to iPhones and modern Androids and yeah you can be sure Symbian will beat them in every regards.
With Qt Symbian software development has increased more than ever and see how OVI store is having a massive 9M downloads per day!
Nokia just needs to step in and make those big as* devices. And maybe we see miracles from Nokia in 2012. Who knows.
fred, 07 Nov 2011i am very very happy 4 u. but i know dat u must loss ur ovi map and store. just go to software... moreYeah fred....
I had lost ovi store & map...bt i reinstalled it later..

Happy now...!!! :-)

The one issue you should be aware of is the purple screen problem with the AMOLED. It doesn't affect all N8's just some and is common enough to cause concern. The best thing to do is try the phone out in the shop to see if it has a very noticeable purple tint on the screen.

While phone is idling and without any application active, my RAM is free about 73mb only. the rest seems utilized for something.
1. How to see any hidden application which running in background and consume the RAM?
2. How to clear up that RAM to minimize level which give me more room for other applications.
3. What is the optimize RAM when phone is in idling mode?
Thanks in advance.
