Also you can call the shop in advance to inquire if they have screens in stock to not waste your time! And they don't damage your phone w/c i find shocking in other comments from other countries after having their N8 fixed!!!
In the Philippines you go into the Nokia care store and show them the purple tint, then they check for your warranty then if there is any available screens they'll replace it immediately. So you can have it back at max 4 hours. Or wait for a week if no screens are available. Although they are actually replacing it with CBD as the screens blacks become deeper and darker. So I really wonder why is it harder for other users to have it replace in better countries?
smart iphon n8 can change your life .all fellin can copy in your 12magapix camera HD video canno't miss any moments it my garenty.i and neethu idid no't miss any moments.i realley like n8

@ SRC Nokia N8
The other thing to consider regarding your battery is it's relative newness. Newer batteries need to calibrated and conditioned which simply means a few weeks of re-charging cycles. Your battery life will improve.
You can't format the C: drive as such, so you won't be able to remove those applications that are a part of the firmware.
The smart installer checks whether any further components are needed, such as QT, when installing applications. What particular apps are you having difficulty with?

On n8 at early stage i have expected 2 full days of backup with avg use...but at the end disappointing result...
Tell me something about formating c drive, i want to get rid of unwanted preinstalled apps...
And what is nokia smart installer? Im unable to install lots of apps and games due to that. Every app and game asks for data connection due to that. If request turned down, it fails to install...very annoying...

Firstly there are many battery saving tips to consider to increase battery life:
Turn off Wi-Fi when you're not using it (same goes for 3G)
Use a Dark theme instead of a bright and colourful one.
Turn off Bluetooth.
Set Widgets to offline mode and only set them to online mode when needed.
Turn email synchronisation to manual or extend the sync period to hourly or every four hours. Also, when closing the email app, press options then exit rather than pressing the exit button next to the options button (this merely hides the app and doesn't close it).
Close down all apps that may be running in the background. Long press the menu button to see what apps are running in the background.
You will need to install the Applications 1/2 (mandatory) and 2/2 (important) and the Service pack to ensure optimal performance for your phone. Any problems you may have with Anna have been discussed and solved over on the Nokia support site.
You will also find many answers to anything else at the same site.

@ shobhit and Sned.
A friend of mine has had his phone since last October and had a perfect working screen with no purple tint.
This August he broke the screen and had to send it back to Nokia for a replacement screen. It was returned to him with a new screen and the purple tint problem. So, even though Nokia have been made aware of and acknowledged this problem they stil haven't done anything to fix it.
As Sned has pointed out, they are selling new phones today with faulty screens.
All the best.

I can't really comment on flashing the N8 with leaked or custom firmware as I've never done it myself.
However, I can tell you that it will carry the risk of bricking your phone so following the instructions exactly to the letter should ensure a successful flash.
I believe (from reading what others have said) that you will be able to update to the official Belle when it gets released by Nokia, so that shouldn't be a problem.
All the best.
i luv my n8 dere is no prblm in my n8......its bst smrtphn works like poket pc wid usb suport nd hd gaming
Krish, 31 Oct 2011Hi Ray,
I would like yo purchase a new smart phone. Now which is the best in market?
I very much like the look of the new Motorola RAZR and would buy it tomorrow if I had the cash.
You might like to consider the Samsung Galaxy S II as well. Pretty much every professional reviewer has given it top marks.
However, Nokia are soon to release their new batch of WP 7.5 Mango phones but I've no idea if they're any good or not.
All the best.
