I have had mine for a year now and never had a fault with it. It has crashed once or twice so i turned it off and on again and it is fine.
I abuse this phone as i am an electrician and need to see inside walls and ceilings, i just make a slot and put the phone in the slot and take pictures of the inside of the wall. The camera takes quality pix that i can zoom in to scan for rodent damage, dodgey junctions etc.
Video camera is good in light conditions but not in dull lighting.
Satnav is very useful but does drain the battery a bit.
I'm amazed the screen still has no scratches even with the abuse i give it.
Well done Nokia :-)

I recently updated my nokia n8 to symbian anna..i found that my fone could not play divx and xvid formats in symbian anna :(..is everyone facing the same problem with anna update or it was only me?

N8 does have SWYPE tech right? Also, did the Belle update fix the keyboard issues?

Firs of all there is no antivirus installed, may be the hardware problem. I will send it to the service but I wait for a right warrenty. Nokia wrote the wrong IMEI on the warranty...no comment again

Just check it. its my personal opinion..
I'm looking for a phone that's built to last, but on a budget, and I think N8 is the perfect choice. The aluminum body, camera and audio quality are all i need. But the problem is I'm a heavy texter, and the lack of qwerty and news of this phone's sucky text input are the only things keeping me from parting with my E72 (and pcketability). What do you guys think? Is it worth it?
Frnd if u r planing to buy a good smartphone(not cheap)just wait for nxt three months.coz nokia will introduce us with a smartphone with dual operating system(windows7mango+may be symbian belle(F.P1)/or nxt updated version.thats not all frnd. nokia include nokia's own 4ghz dual core proccesor with powerfull gpu,4gb ram,onboard memory 64gb expndble upto80gb. 5.6inch hd screen,qwerty keypad,10days btry bckup,HTML5.and it is true. but i don't know about the camera.and ya it will be the nokia's ultimate answer/challange for the iphone/ipad or android lovers...bye and don't forget to always keep smiling
brought N8, was perfectly fentastic phone, but when updated to ANNA i donn know whats wroung with the pnone started getting restar 2-3 time a day...........
any one whos faceing the same problem or any one who can help me in resolving this problem
thanks and appreciated

There are two possibilities that spring to mind that might be the cause of your problems. The first is that you have anti-virus software installed and that is known to cause the problems you are describing. Uninstall anti-virus because you don't need it on a Symbian phone.
The second possibility is that the phone itself has a hardware fault, in which case you should have it checked at your local Nokia Care Point (NCP). If it is defective the NCP will repair/replace under warranty.
There may be a third cause for the freezing. You might have a beta app or two installed. If so, simply uninstall them.
greendog, 13 Sep 2011I was a SonyEricsson fan and a do the mistake to buy a Nokia N8 phone. Symbian chrush down eve... moreYour are a liar. You did not own N8 or have fake one. If your N8 is so faulty why you did not get it repaired.
I was a SonyEricsson fan and a do the mistake to buy a Nokia N8 phone. Symbian chrush down everi 10 minutes...loose his colours ( some times blue some times red or some times green colour ). I was updated the phone to OS ANNA. I lost the colour problem, now is just perfect...remaining freez in main menue everi 5 minutes, everithing is frozen only solution to reset the phone...every 5 minutes...unbelieveble. I hope the problem will disapared whit OS Belle, if not is too bad ...expensive phone useless.
