The Anna update is OK, but I have found it a little buggy when I scroll on certain websites - which did not happen before this update! Also, I am disappointed that the Belle update is not happening ASAP but then that is what you can expect with Nokia!
I have never been tempted by Iphone to date, but I have to admit that I am considering taking the plunge with the new version expected in October. Nokia have been way too slow in getting out the updates and even with the expected Belle update are still behind some way. However, on a positive note, the N8 camera is currently unbeatable and that is reason I bought one. My daughter owns an old Iphone 3g which I have to say (software wise) is a pleasure to use, both on the internet and general use etc.
The Battery of the Nokia N8 does not last more than 6 hours on almost Zero usage and less if I use it, Can anyone tell me why this happens or what reason, or the Battery is just takes too much power , for using AWD FREQUENCIES ?
I flashed my N8 with Belle .phone is very lagy and battery is drained with in two hours.
scrolling also not smooth as symbian 3

i do not know who you are but hear me out bruv...do not get intimidated by some silly comment from an ignorant person. Keep posting to help who even might need your advice and help from your experience with the device.
I have been reading through your solutions and tips to the entire N8 forum and i must say a big thanks on behalf of those who would accept and acknowledge your effort.
I am a software engineer dealing with cell phones and its buid-up technical know-hows....and agree to most of your criticisms and they are relevant to the N8 community, i believe.
schönon Tag noch.
it's ok if nokia symbian belle copied some android features coz android already did that to apple ios. competition is just a matter of originality and copying.
I am soon heading for the mighty Nokia N8. Guys are bragging about android, so whats 'very' special about it any way? Thousands of Apps? how many hundreds will you install on your phone? 5, maybe 10.... Symbian was around even when guys did not know what it meant to have an operating system on a phone. Symbian is the bomb and is here to stay. the others will just come and pass...
Its really a great phone. S Anna is amazing.
I am very happy with my Nokia N8.
phones are very dangerous so handle with care, whether nokia or any other, question is nokia care and support , but i think it is laking to the customer demands and un qualified youngesters sitting on counters for nothing , for my n82 , repairing at private center in cheap and satisfactory in hundred insted of thousands, ok it is alright ,i am N8, N82 USER. Fantastic , packed with latest features and needs, plz give warm well come to customers with grievences instead of new purchase new one which is offered by great honour.

Somebody here told me to get a life and to stop ranting. Well, I already did by ditching Nokia. But what annoys me is when I was helping people with their questions nobody told me to get a life then. It's clear to me that most people only hear what they want to hear.
There won't be any more rants from me as it's pointless. Too many fan boys to deal with.
How to check QT version on N8. And also other system information others what displayed in device update page. Something about cpu info, chipset or etc... Man I need to explore more about this phone..... Kinda exited to know more.
if a new director makin film wid a new hero gets hit and famous instantly den even a famous old director opts for d new hero in his films..nokia has done d same thing..

And of course the N8 is lightning fast and best in class is it?
It has never come ... moreDitto.
Nokia clearly ran out of ideas and instead of innovating, they took the short route and made Symbian Belle look like Android. No matter how you look at it, from the HTC-esque clock widget, to the pull down notificaton, it screams KIRF Android. Don't listen to these guys who hates your rants. I'm with you and I do agree that Nokia has lost its way.
