Basically I am totally in awe of the N-8s capabilities. Ok my first real smartphone. It is my life-line here in rural Costa Rica. I have no power and have to charge the fone in my Pathfinder but at the same time am plugged into the world via BBC world news, YouTube and all the rest the web offers. Two gripes tho: lack of copy-paste or mark and copy option (I tried Opera and didn't like it), and this, which has been bugging me lately: the screen jumps position when I click on, say, "send" and I find I've selected some other choice, on various occasions "delete ". Why should I have to be so extra-careful doing such a simple operation?
This phone rulz. Nothing on the market comes even close in terms of price/functionality ratio. Maybe the SE Neo.. but the plastic body...not so much :)
AnonD-3171, 26 Sep 2011just bought it today...and im having purple tint prb...but only while playing video and only i... moreYes, just buy the application from the ovi store called "stay unlock, dim lights" it turnes the screen brightness up an stops the dim that causes the purple and turnes the light sensor off, but you can lock your phone manuly eith the switch on the side. That app will completley get rid of your purple tint just dont exit the app it needs to run in the background to work..
But it woks like a charm.....
Elan, 29 Sep 2011N8 is nice, but controls in my headphones not working. I have changed the unit once but still ... moreHi Elan, this might help you although it is a silly advice. Sometimes nokia headsets need to be plugged deeper than it seems. When you feel that they are already plugged just push a little more and you will see that it can go further in. Also try connect and disconnect the cable. The first time I tried the headsets I thought they didn´t work properly, but once I plugged them again and applying more preassure they clicked and worked fine.
Hope this helps.
Have a great day!
guys can anyone help me to choose between the two?
or N8 silver tnx for you reply..

AnonD-23768, 27 Sep 2011Hahahaha.... Hello Everyone I Was Read EveryBody Comments Here.... First Ov All....
68... moreSorry to stop your fun. N8's video is also HD as well as X10's, neither of them are Full HD. And N8 is also capable of Continuous Auto Focus. So, your Android is iOS-ish? That means it is a copy & wanna-be iOS. Tsk, tsk, tsk. Our Symbian is a unique OS & runs with less power (less resource hungry). Symbian got a point there as well. And you didn't write about some staffs like HDMI, USB on-the-go, Radio Transmitter, divX & Xvid support out of the box, Office editor, penta-band 3G support (no matter where you go, you can carry your phone with you) etc. Tell me, starting from HDMI, how many points did your X10 collect? None? Tsk, tsk, tsk. Again, N8's 16GB internal memory vs X10's 1GB. Bluetooth V3 vs V2 (those who used BT V3 knows how fast it is comparing with V2), besides, X10 cannot do 3G calls (sad face). Guess what, it doesn't have TV-out nor it have HDMI. And the story goes on and on. I appreciate that you compared N8 with X10, but, to manipulate things on your side, you compared only some of the features. N8 is a package, whereas X10 is just Android, nothing else. Those who are using N8 knows that they are using one of the most popular phone in the world. If you would fight for Samsung Galaxy S2, I would say same for you. But do a research in the market & you'll see that SE X10 is one of the least popular phones available. If X10 would be so great, not all the people are stupid like us, then people would have bought X10 a lot. Think about it, it'll be a bed time thinking for you tonight. Answer me tomorrow.
hi also le n8 becos is haveng 12mb camera and 3g benifit is very well

iOS and Android have pretty much set back mobile technology. What was the basic feature with Symbian back then are nowadays called advance.

And it works just fine for video calling in 3G networks, but of course not with the existing skype for symbian. Try Fring though for video calls.
