Awesome cell phone. I am using this cell from past 4 months and have no complaints. Battery backup is marvelous, camera is super fine especially the xenon light...no cell phone camera can take better pictures at night than NOKIA N8, virtual keypad is better than real keypad. Plays almost any format of videos. HDMI is great to play games on a bigger screen. Awesome web browser after upgrading to Symbian Anna...but for me Opera is still the first preferrence. HD games like, AVATAR, NFS SHIFT, ASPHALT 5, ASSASIN CREED, SPIDERMAN, JAWX, PES2011, GT RACING, CRICKET 2010, ANGRY BIRDS etc. can also be downloaded and installed. Can play music via. Radio in ur car, radio set, or any other cell phone's radio. Never seen a photo and video editor like the one present in Nokia N8 before. Has maps with life time free navigation...and much much more..
1. Life time free GPS Navigation, means u buy a GPS device at the price of a cell phone.
2. 12 megapixel camera with xenon flash...means u get a digital camera included as well.
3. Nice screen size for movies and pdf documents on the go, means better than TAB's which come neither in category of PC's nor in the category of mobiles, for mobility.
Guys go for it if u can spend a few extra bucks.
A lot of things are going on in this N8 page.
I own a N8 from 1 month and believe me its not i didnt do any research n spent 22500 buks on a mobile which don't give anything.
I could have own a HTC DESIRE or a SAMSUNG GS or a SAMSUNG GS2 or SE ARC. but I was clear about my requirements
1.Great camera which can replace my need of a point shoot camera.
2.A device with very good quality music output.
3.A touchscreen phone with great build and durability.
5.capability of running various Videos without conversion.N remember ITS AMOLED Screen.
now Am I satishfied? Yes Dude.
just tell me a Cell which have all this Facilities in this price range PLUS
2.HDMI connector cable packed
3.USB on the go
4.USB device conncting cable packed
6.720p video recording
7.Great free GPS navigation
7.A NOKIA CARE AT EACH N EVERY CORNER OF MY COUNTRY.
etc etc etc
and After ANNA update my UI is also too good like any samsung or HTC feel.
I am not telling that I don't miss any feature of any othe good phone
But I do realise How much I spent,for that I got the best thing in my hand.
People COMPARE this NOKIA flagship with the other BRAND Flagships till TODAY after its release from Past 1 year. I am too HAPPY n I will request others to stop complaining N Enjoy the Technology U have as N8.
Understand UR requirements and make a Purchase.
U CANT HAVE EVERYTHING IN A SINGLE PHONE.
Specially to all anonymous & other people out here, please dont post anything bad about N8, Its doing the best job a one cell phone can do. Whatever the probs you are facing, please accept it...
Why to criticize N8, for e.g if you like few thing over N8 compared to may be galaxy s2 or whatever, Then please go to respective comment section & praise it, simple...
Why do you kick the ass of other things for your desires??? Remember no gadget is perfect...
Im damn sure your pc with 3GB RAM & 3GHz processor hangs & dies too...!!! After all N8 is just a pretty little cell in your palm without which you cant live...!
EEZO, 03 Sep 2011my n8 is slow when it comes to social networks, takes forever to navigate..argg!i get so angry... moreits your internet that is slow not the phone... try to analyze first your internet connection if its fast... maybe its time for you to upgrade your date plan
Android- best in apps but realistically, how many apps does a person install or even use.
Iphone- best in performance.
N8- best in features and built quality. The greatest multimedia device in the world
i notice that the purple is gone when i updated my N8 to anna and the display is now much clearer and more crispier! my phone has now more options. its getting better, much much better!
There are the ones with defective N8s around , but that doesn't mean the company Nokia isn't doing a good job, every manufacturer have products with defects here or there, overall the N8 is great featured packed phone for the price.
First spot in interest 16.4 million thats a lot of faulty phones Ray
Do you have trying change custom chasing on n8??
I was try that...im using ipad mini..chase.
N use iphone 4 themes with 5*6menu style..it amazing 90% look iphone 4.!!! Or ipad mini..
The phone is faster nw after the anna update...and the battery is better too...occasional restarts though...but nw 3 days without it restarting...am loving my N8 more..cant wait for belle...symbian is very power efficient...i hated my Ideos...it was good and fancy but power hungry...only lasted 4 hrs...i cud nt stay away from the charger...i wud have more juice than those android tweaks any day...my old samsung wave s8500 is fast...but battery...is bad...256mb is okay with me as i have never got any out of memory alerts...and perfomance is pretty much fast despite...its 680mhz processor...i dont see any difference with my samsung wave wc has 1Ghz...perfomance wise...and no hanging problems with my n8
