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.
everyone who recommend to skip n8 i think are wrong,,,i juss luv n8!!!its features are awesome n covers are cool too!!!
