First off, I haven't said anything hateful about the N8. I just merely pointed out that it is an old phone with old hardware and a dying OS. Before you say, "what about Belle?", I will tell you that I'm not interested in it. It's basically an Android wannabe clone and a very weak attempt at keeping some sort of interest in Nokia until the Windows phones hit the market.
My particular N8 has been trouble free since I got it last October, apart from the next to useless web browser and that still doesn't work, even after the Anna update. That doesn't bother me though because I use my PC for browsing the internet anyway.
Finally then, I would not recommend anybody to buy an N8 anymore mostly because of its age but more importantly because of its dying OS and Nokia's lack of interest in offering proper support by fixing the bugs in a timely fashion.
All the best.
What was this extra update you were downloading? Was it Real Golf by any chance?

In his world its forth in the popular poll and first in interest because its such a poor phones. Who are the fools are we all unhappy i do not think so very happy N8 owner
it's high in interest also because its a good phone, gr8 hardware specs, with a average symbian Os, witch jst got good with the Anna update, we post not jst the problems but what we like and the reason many post because they know about it or have it, people who write thier problems with nokia n8 might have got those of the bad batch wich i once had it too, i bought a new one and its working good.. love it. many who hate it also criticize about it in all ways they can. simply because they cant accept the fact that is a good phone.. and as all electronic devices not all are perfect few do hv flows but the fact cant be denied that millions of n8 users love their phones and many are yet buying it..
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2011If this is such a crappy phone why is then forth in ratings and first in interest Just wonderi... more I'm usually a bit suspicious of people who post anonymously but I'll respond all the same.
The reason it's first in daily interest is because of all the issues the N8 suffers with. The majority of posts on here are from people asking for advice on how to solve this problem or that.
I was asked my opinion on whether someone should by this phone or the SE Neo. I gave an unbiased and truthful answer, so why have you been so upset that I didn't recommend the N8? It shouldn't matter to you one way or the other, nor will it alter other peoples experiences in owning their N8's.
Don't be so touchy and relax.
