[deleted post]@ Nokia Rules.
It is pretty sad when a once innovative company resorts to copying someone else's design. Mind you, these are early days yet and Belle might end up looking completely different.
AnonD-13159, 07 Jul 2011hi ray! i hav read ur comments. wht do u say? anybody with a good suggestion plz help me!@crazy-fan.
First off then, if you are buying an unbranded SIM free phone you won't experience the lag and slowdown reported by some users who have branded SIM locked phones, so you're already onto a winner.
Despite my previous comments about Symbian being dead, it won't officially be dead until 2016 when the updates finally stop, so until then there will be regular updates.
The touch screen itself is excellent, being very responsive, bright and clear.
The inbuilt default web browser though is pathetic. However, a new browser will arrive with the Anna update in August so in the meantime you can download Opera Mobile from the Ovi store for free and use that instead. Most people have nothing but praise for Opera Mobile including me.
Please bear in mind that the N8 does not have full Flash 10.x support, only flash lite 4 which is compatible with most Flash 10 web sites.
Music quality is OK, quite loud through the device speaker and pretty good through the supplied headset, but be warned that there aren't any user configurable equaliser settings, just a handful of pre-sets. But, you can download for free an app called Tunewiki from the Ovi store which adds a few more pre-sets and a user configurable one to the list of the other default pre-sets.
Lastly then is the battery. By smartphone standards it is quite good. I typically get two to three days from mine under light to moderate use and one to two days under heavy usage such as music and video playback, as well as Satellite navigation and a bit of gaming.
Hope that helps you to decide to buy or not.
All the best.

@ ray yes now buying nokia is foolishness bcoz nokia is not that nokia which was 3 years back ....and next year wp7 from nokia has disappointed a lot .,.fact is that nokia don't want to see people demand and wants from nokia ,they just do what they want and here nokia is only the point by which nokia is going down ,,,,after n8 a lot were expected from nokia and they announced also n9 handset but again sad news they are not supporting meego so whats the point of making phone with such os which they are not supporting for atleast 3 years..so nokia basically now days can't be trusted anymore...its better to switch to other and yes u have taken very right decision of getting rid soon from n8....All the best!!
Hi guys i hv n8 its 12 pixel camera is just same like 2 pixel camera you cant find the difference. And while video Shoot the flash focus does not operate. In twice a day phone automatically shut off n on. Internet speed is just like 3 thousand rupees phone. Battery is good.

AnonD-1124, 05 Jul 2011do you intend to replace your phone in 5 years?@r 3 b 3 I
I intend to replace both my handsets next year or sooner if I can. The SGS doesn't interest me in the slightest and the N8 will be past it's shelf life by then. Searching the internet for news about Belle tells me that it will mostly be a cosmetic change to Symbian, and resemble the look and feel of Android.
Now, as I'm trying to stay clear of Android I will probably get rid of my N8 before it gets molested by this silly cosmetic change. That's how much I dislike Android.
All the best.
