Let me tell why I choose symbian than others:
apple+flash= will be laggy
aplle+flash+real multitask= so very laggy
aplle only support shortcut, thats why it's so smooth. I don't even think it's a smartphone. Just install voyager homescreen on your N8 and see how just so smooth it is.
Challenge apple to apply all this symbian capability on their phone. No, they won't dare.
Android I think it's good enough. Secure is my main reason. Everybody must be agree that feel secure is one of the most important thing in our life. So, do we choose secure? Absolutely.
Durability also my another reason choosing symbian, i mean nokia.
There's still many other reason, but too many to tell one by one. Beside that, I've telling the most.
N8 Lover S, 25 Sep 2011Dear martin, the reason many manufacturers uses Android is because Android is an OPEN SOURCE O... morewell done bro ! the best comments i read :-) . really you are great . you opened my eyes . now i can say symbian is best mobile os :-)
martin132014, 24 Sep 2011U all know why many manufacturer uses android rather than symbian that only nokia use...thats ... moreL0L! You compare Nokia with Android? A Company vS an OS? Grow up man... Why do you care what we spend? I have used Android devices both HTC's and Samsung's, and I don't like it. Then why are you here? You lost?
martin132014, 24 Sep 2011U all know why many manufacturer uses android rather than symbian that only nokia use...thats ... moreDear martin, the reason many manufacturers uses Android is because Android is an OPEN SOURCE OS where they can find the code for FREE. That means they don't need to pay extra for the OS. On the other hand, Symbian is developed by Symbian Org, sponsored by Nokia. Nokia is paying a lot of money on it. I remember, back in 2005 I used Nokia 6600, which was a multitasking phone. Android became multitasking from ver 2.2 (I'm NOT considering minimizing the music player/radio as multitasking, rather being able to run multiple tasks, including browsing the menu, web browser, contacts, messages, games, camera etc on the background all together). So don't come & try to teach us about Android & Symbian. If you would do your homework (homework means research in IT language), you'd know that Android is the LEAST secured OS in the world. There are possibilities that your Andoid will be attacked by virus or hackers more than my Nokia. You have never used a Nokia, if you would, you'd know that Symbian don't browse page by page, rather have folder system (another first & unique in mobile) in menu. You are talking about faster processor. Tell me this, if you buy a ferrari & I then ask you to go through traffic jam, how fast will your FAST FERRARI go? Will it go more than a BEETLE? I don't think so. You go and fry your brain with high power processor near your brain all the time, I'm (along with a lot more people here) absolutely okay with lower processor. We want to live longer. I can write a long history about Android, but I don't want people to get bored. Guess what, this is Nokia page & you Android fanboys still visit here, because you are jealous of Nokia. How many Nokia fanboys have you seen visiting other pages? I can show you at least 10 times more Android fanboys visiting Nokia pages. If you're so happy with your Android, why don't you stick to it? Why do you need to come to our Nokia page? You answer me this first, then I'll talk to you. Else, just get lost!
AnonD-13383, 25 Sep 2011belle is fixed with the latest update and works really well now........I love nokia N8 with only think I found negative about it is that the screen is too small in my opinion.It should be 3.9" like in announced nokia N9.
Guys do not install Symbian Belle unofficial version .
It's only beta therefore they going to be annoying little thinks there .And is not worth it as belle update is coming in next month I think.Another think is that when you update it via Phoenix or whatever software you going to use You will find that in some cases is impossible to downgrade to previous versions of Symbian.Then you stuck with unofficial version of Symbian unable to do any further updates and you will lose License as well ...I now what I'm talking about as I've updated my N8 to Belle then I had to downgrade it which wasn't that streight forward.And most importantly some of my friends were not able to downgrade even to scandinavian 11.5 at the end most of theme bircked their device!
marjans, 23 Sep 2011whats happening with ANNA i Australia....i mean come on...its nearly october & we still ha... moreI got sick of waiting for anna, so I went over to the n8fanclub and falshed my device with with belle, it is alot faster and smoother now....
anyone not have anna yet? go get the belle on ur n8. try it and you love it.. using this for 1month..
please does *#7370# deletes the default nokia applications like ovisuite, maps etc ? I understand using the 3key flash formating erases the application but is it safe to use the 7370 method without erasing the nokia app? Tnx

jazi, 24 Sep 2011hi can any1 tell me does n8 hangs alot? cuz i was gona buy one but my friends are saying th... moren8 with anna is fastest and smoothest symbian ever and doesn't hang. if it does, probably due to the software installed. i'm saying this from my experience.
martin132014, 24 Sep 2011U all know why many manufacturer uses android rather than symbian that only nokia use...thats ... morei have a doubt on ur using of a mobile phone. even a symbian device!!! Either u dont use it or havnt the ability to use it. for that u cant find any single good app for symbian although i get thousands. So wht r u doing now with ur growing up galaxy??? using SG S , 2 , ace, note or any other!!! Take ur time u may get Galaxy s 10 with 8 ghz processor and 6 gb RAM in 4-5 months. or if now u can find apps then u may use ur pc with windows 7 or linux with the same CPU 1.2 ghz, 1 gb. And i think u can use more apps even too larger apps then ur Android. ha ha ha....
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2011hello, just do not throw trash on other brands man, i am using an n8 too. just like any other ... morei know man... bt isnt it stupid bring the all most same mobile phone with extension of ram or processor or even camera in every months!!! Do u know why the apple is in no 1 position in mobile phones??? Because they never brings i phones in a gap of 1 or 2 months. they support consumers. and thats why they r there.
N8 is 1 1/2 year old ... and you all still posting comments ... great phone huh ? i want to buy it for my wife .. just for great pics & vids .. i go for iOS ..
dats what d product of nokia. 12mp camera is a highlight of this product. By d way whats the price?
Am using N8 from 8 months.and its been really good. I am really happy cause i made a good choice for 24000 Rs.
1.If we need a Device, that can handle most of our needs ...That's perfect....And its N8..(Vedio Player, decent Music Player, Better battery, Greatest Camera, Cool Screen, .........)
2. 2 to 3 hrs talking, 2 Hrs Music, face book chatting for 1/2 an hr , messaging(most frequently)...Still more than 24 hrs battery...Am damn sure you won't get it in any other multi media phone.
3.IM Communicator , Outlook both works great and so useful.....
In countries like india I don't think we are baadly in need of Android or Windows or mac for mobiles.
Great multimedia pack, basic apps, Good battery........That's all...And its N8...
I Love my N8...Try it....
