jake, 04 Oct 2011hi George its a nice phone,but hangs with symbian^3not with anna its a good choicestrange, N8's symbian is one of the most stable phone OS available. In addition, it's price is keep falling. If it continues, will definitely get it.
who ever wrote below lines are 1000 times true
To whoever is considering buying N8.I am using this phone for last 8 months.I have upgraded to anna now.With anna major improvements are,
No crashing or freezing of phone or apps
Better battery life(30-40%)
Email client has become very slick
Better browser speed.
New camera UI and major improvements in video quality.and lots more.You can check other improvements everywhere.
Now with Belle expected in November,no phone can beat N8's value for money,as belle promises to make the UI very good with increased battery life and many other goodies.
So N8 owners rejoice and prospective buyers,rush there is no substitute to N8 even after 1 year.Best Camera,free GPS,HDMI port,FM transmitter,awesome build quality,call quality,great battery performance.What else do you need in a smartphone with such price.
N8?, 05 Oct 2011still no official anna update in USA! It's a shame! No anna update for the wealthiest coun... morehahaha USA wealthiest country ? when where how ? Nokia sells higher mobiles in India so we got ANNA asap same day when it launched :)but N8 is just awesome set.
I want this phone. I love playing HD games on it I've downloaded from http://www.afflicks.com
Anna has a critical bug. Log application doesn't show any packet data and wifi connections. Nokia should fix this cr@p
pls help, my screen locks after just 10 secs of inactivity. I've set it to lock after 60 secs but still locks after 10 secs. Any other way to keep it open for a longer period?
george_k, 04 Oct 2011I am consdidering to buy N8 and i want an N8ing user to inform/advice me about:
1) If symbian... moreAs far as I know (after using N8 from the very beginning), Anna removed all the SW problems. Mind you, N8 has the least amount of RAM (256MB) of the four Symbian^3 phones (N8, C6-01, C7 & E7). So, the users who just press the 'menu' button to exit the programs will find their phone hang as the RAM will be quickly filled up. I always press & hold menu for the running programs & remove which I don't use at the moment. Second, my Orange N8 had purple tint in PR1.2, but went away after the Anna update. My wife's Green N8 didn't have purple tint in PR1.1, had it in PR1.2 & it went away in Anna update. So from that I can guaranty that the purple tint is NOT a HW problem. It will be gone when you update to Anna. One more thing, to knm, pls don't exaggerate about something you love so much, don't screw it up with lie. You said N8 has CBD (Clear Black Display), but it doesn't. Only C6-01 & E7 (among N8, C6-01, C7 & E7) has CBD. Please, know the device before describing it to someone else, don't mislead others.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2011been using an N8 for months now and i'm starting to see this 'keep N8-ing' phrase. Can any car... moreUse your imagination, man, use your imagination. This is a creative phrase line. When you eat continuously - you are eating, when you sleep continuously - you are sleeping, when you smile continuously - you are smiling. Same way, when you use N8 continuously - you are N8-ing. Understood? Sorry bro, but you disappointed me. Anyway, take care.
AnonD-1097, 04 Oct 2011Guys N8 has proved to be the best smartfone ever...no fone even cmes close..now iam using bell... moreGood for you, you already have symbian belle on your N8.

Rob, 04 Oct 2011I am using N8 i bought from the USA and i am using it in Ghana. I have not been able to upgrad... moreyou can't upgrade until anna is launched for the states. you should've gotten an N8 from europe or asia. you would've had it by now. looks we're both gonna have to wait until the end of october for the update. that's what they told me.... *sigh*
Guys N8 has proved to be the best smartfone ever...no fone even cmes close..now iam using belle since a month...and must admit...best nokia ever....i just finished my trip to ibiza and barcelona...they way N8 captured the snaps..tat even my sony digi cam failed...and low light snaps n8 rocked....i had pre downloaded the maps....and in the nites the gps saved me wen ever i lost my way....and now with belle Os...iam in love with my N8 allover again....waiting for nokia to launch a N8 successor....Guys dnt think just buy the N8....and yes all the usb on the go,fm transmitter,hdmi out put r just icing on the cake....
If n8 would had 1ghz processor and 512 ram, it would had never hang or freeze and would have been the best phone
Rob, 04 Oct 2011I am using N8 i bought from the USA and i am using it in Ghana. I have not been able to upgrad... moreDial *#0000#, and select 'check for updates' from the options. if the message persists than connect ur phone via Nokia Ovi Suite and update it from there. These are the only two ways i know of for updating firmware so hope it helps mate!
Rob, 04 Oct 2011I am using N8 i bought from the USA and i am using it in Ghana.
