Anonymous, 10 May 2011Anyone knows why we cant use flash for HD recording You cannot use the Xenon flash for video recording, because it is a Xenon flash. It is designed for a brief and very bright flash of light only. If it were to be activated continually it would blow within a very short space of time due to the amount of heat it would generate.
In my opinion, I think Nokia would have been better off putting dual LED's on the camera instead of a Xenon flash, which is a bit of overkill for a mobile phone. The benefits of having LED's are the ability to record video with light, and to use the phone as a torch.
N8, 10 May 2011@ Nokia EX Fanboy No, I'm not suggesting to let Nokia get away with that.. I'm only sayiing ... more@N8.
LCD screens can also suffer from burn-in. I've seen it in action more than once.
At no time have I mentioned burn-in on AMOLED screens. What I have stated though, is life expectancy of the display. You see, Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode ( AMOLED ) displays do not have a back-light, instead each individual sub-pixel glows it's respective colour of either red, blue or green thus providing the necessary light to display an image on screen. So, if those OLEDS are being supplied with a higher amount of current all the time they will degrade and die far quicker than allowing the phone to adjust the brightness automatically according to ambient light conditions.
That being said, I'm not objecting to people using the app to disable the light sensor, I'm just advising people that if you use that app excessively your display will have a shorter life span. As far as I know, burn-in will only occur if there is a static image being displayed for a given length of time.
All the best.
Hi all, I asked a few times allready, but no one has got the right answer to it. When a proper Youtube app will be available for nokia n8??? Dont sugest me to use google one - its terible.
How come all phones has got it, but not n8??? Looks like nobody cares about that phone at all.
@ Nokia EX Fanboy No, I'm not suggesting to let Nokia get away with that.. I'm only sayiing that until they have a solution we can hide this by disabling the sensor and adjusting the brightness at 80%
@ Ray iPhone doesn't have Amoled but how come I've seen LCD screens get burned in???
My point was that many people have their Amoled phones on Maximum brightness. But you don't have to do that on N8.
Level 4 (80) is risk free and perfect
But shame on Nokia
n8 is the best i have prple tint in the clock only. but watching videos and pictures i cant see it anymore. im wondering people are comlaining.about it. performance still the same sound is superb. why be bothered of the tint . actually make the clocks more attractive for me. just go for n8 and you will love it than any other phone trust me. cheers
Carmencita, 10 May 2011I have a N8 for 1 mounth and the call register is only for 12 hours, even is set on 30 days. D... more Goto Applications > Tools and press Log. There are two tabs at the top of the screen. The second one will display a full log of all activity including Wi-Fi connections and GPRS connections. Those will take up log space, hence you only seeing the last 12 hours for calls. As far as I know there isn't a fix for that, other than to turn off data conections when not needed. It is generally considered that the log on the N8 is pretty poor and in need of improvement.

If that were true, then all N8's would have the purple defect.
As it stands only some have the defect. Mine certainly doesn't.
Also, why would Samsung need to sabotage Nokia when the Galaxy S has outsold the N8 anyway, and Nokia are not really giving any serious competition to Samsungs market share in the smart phone industry?
All the best.
Nokia Expert, 09 May 2011@ Ray
Than answer this:
How come the users of Galaxy s, iPhone 4, C6-01, E7, Xperia X10 ... more Nokia Expert wrote
" Than answer this:
How come the users of Galaxy s, iPhone 4, C6-01, E7, Xperia X10 and many other phones have their screen brightness at maximum? "
The iPhone4 and Xperia X10 do not have AMOLED displays. The C6-01 and the E7 have the same displays and OS as the N8, so by default the brightness control is set to automatic and the light sensor cannot be disabled from within the OS, but can be disabled via the Brightness control app.
The Galaxy S has an AMOLED screen, and by default the brightness control is set to automatic. However, the OS does allow for the light sensor to be disabled if one wishes.
Now, the nature of AMOLED screens dictates that they already have a shorter life span than an LCD screen. So back to my original statement of " use the app with caution ". I did not tell people not to use the app at all, but with caution as setting the screens brightness at a high level for extended periods can reduce the life span of the display.
All the best.
when u started Ultimate voice recorder is running at the background in nokia n-8
I will Tell U about Nokia N900
Firstly, this is the most powerful device. No
Secondly, I myself used to have 5800 earlier and
when I saw N900 first time it was weird for me,
as its functionality is totally different than mobiles we have used by now. As the concept of working is different. Things like touching the non active area will hide the active/visible area etc...
I heavily depend on it and is very helpful whether its business or entertainment.
Business: Skype Video Calling(awesome), webbrowsing(you can even carry out bank transactions in its browser) etc..
Entertainment: I watch movies on it just need to dump the whole movie, no conversion required, Music(Very good quality), can access Facebook(see videos and even chat on its browsers), play PalmPre 3D games etc...
Other plus point is USB charging which is generally missing in lot of Nokias.
It will work only 18 hours of its back up if you are using all the widgets activated.
Disable them and you can easily get 2-3 days of backup in normal use.
Now, being higly techie, I have installed Android in it too and love to use Android Applications and 3D games which can be installed on SD card without effecting your main OS. Will be soon deploying Meegoo too.
The best feature of all: running multiple programs simultaneously... which cannot be carried out on Android/Iphone devices because of its Linux powered OS feels like mini-computer though many users are using this term, you actually feel it as its very helpful for your needs/requirements thats why they say...
I change so many devices but this is the only device that I'll treasure it, as simply saying, this is the masterpiece.
So, it depends on your interests, for me 5800 and N8 is crap and I don't like it after using it.
Thats all for today :)
I have been a Nokia user for over 10 years now but now i belive the company is actually dead.
My Nokia N8 has been giving me problems for the past 3 months and the Nokia customer care have been unable to solve the problem. The service and product (the phone) are absolutely useless. Please dont ever buy a nokia product. The company is OVER.
can someone tell me when will the pink color in nokia N8 be available in the stores
AnonD-40, 10 May 2011Are you suggesting that we should let Nokia get away with this and just hide the defect and mo... moreDon't you know that Samsung sabotaged Nokia by supplying the latter with "defective" displays? Nokia did everything to attend and address that purple tint issue on their Care centers. No other manufacturers would even care do that. But nothing more can be done about that since the fault is theirs anymore. Let's just wait Nokia file a lawsuit against Samsung just like Apple did. Samsung is the most unoriginal and cunning mobile phone company there is, They love to copy other companies' ideas, implement them on their products and take all the credits on them just like how they copy iPhone's design to their Galaxy series, iOS interface to their TouchWiz, and Android is not even their own OS. Yet they get all the credits for producing the deemed, "best smartphone of the year," Samsung Galaxy S II. They are a dirty player. I would never put my trust on Samsung.
personally i have seen both the n8 the one with purple tint and the one without.
to me the one without purple tint is the brightest screen....and the videos are crystal clear.
the one with purple tint is dull in brightness and also the videos show the dark areas with purple pixels.
there is no point in purchasing n8 now...better to wait until they release the new batch with rectified screens......
i would like to wait for such a beautiful mobile....
[deleted post]Are you suggesting that we should let Nokia get away with this and just hide the defect and move on? Hiding the defect and making it less noticeable is not the same as fixing the defect.
Getting the defect eliminated is Nokia's job. Nokia should start supplying the NCCs with defect free screens but sadly, they are not doing that. It has been 5 months since the news of this defect broke out and Nokia admitted the defect but there is still no fix to it. Nokia's first reaction to this issue was denial and they even banned the person who broke this news out for a few days on Nokia's official help forums.
The first person who broke this issue and brought it into the blogosphere has now moved on to a Galaxy S2. He went through a total of 10 N8 in less than 3 months and each one of them have the purple defect.
Nokia should be held accountable for this and the defect should be fixed and not hidden.
