If you mean the lag while changing home screens, then I must tell you that it's not lag.
This part is taken straight from N8's review:
"You might notice that the homescreen starts scrolling only after you have completed your swipe across the screen but that’s how it was designed and not some lag. Because of the fact that some widgets are side-scrollable the handset waits to see if you want to browse them or skip to the next screen."
Check out some samples i taken by Nokia N8 and Nokia E7.
Photos never been thru post processing
I"ve had my N8 since February. The screen is perfect with no discoloration, no defects at all. The handset is a solid performer with outstanding and unmatched connectivity options. This is a great phone. The UI is Symbian (obviously), either you like it or you don't! I'm glad to be out of the IPhone drone world! Thank you Nokia for making such a great handset. This one is a winner!

I just want to ask. If by any chance, the defect free screens arrive and the Nokia Care Centers have them... Are they sure to repair the device without causing any damage to it? I once had a phone repaired, and there were obvious signs of damage in the casing of the phone. I really want my N8 to remain perfectly scratchless...
I love apple for onething, when they push something out they would push out for everyone. Where Ipad or Ipad2 owner. They are best with what they take out.
Nokia, Microsoft or any other companies would keep time between complete update is roll out.
I personally feel N8 with Symbian has more potential then iOS. It's technologically more advanced than any OS in the market except for the laggy interface. But I love that too.
I am loving N8 even more....
The Ex-Nokia Fanboy, 01 May 2011Today we went to Carphonewarehouse and opened up three boxes of N8 and they all have the blood... moreLOL...then why are u faking all with such efforts?you can go with whatever you want...different people different likenesses. These companies are all too big to fail. Then can you get out of here happily now? or will you still coming here and talking fake stories again and again,you can say whatever you want.who cares? but you are not belong to here I'd say ha ha...get a life my friend.
P.S-carphone warehouse never mention about any screen issues of Nokia N8,I am juz letting you know to stop you keep saying a lie.
[deleted post]Today we went to Carphonewarehouse and opened up three boxes of N8 and they all have the bloody defect. We now have opened a total of thirteen boxes of N8 in two days and they are all ravaged with the screen defect. I told my friend to try another shop so we went to Phones 4U and I showed him the Galaxy S II. He saw how snappy and great it is. Needless to say he was impressed by the best smartphone on the market. We were tired of looking for the perfect N8 and he gave up hope finding a non defective device after opening an astounding thirteen boxes of defective and rubbish N8. I walked out of the store with a brand new Android fan and he now wields the best smartphone on the market and it's defect free.
Been using it for 4 mths so far..so far so good and best part is the HD video recording and the sensitive touch compare to tis previous touch models lik X1..the in bulit browser bit sux..have to depend on third part browser to surf online..
I have been using n 8 from last one month.I was aware about the purple tint problem before I get my mobile.in my mobile, it can be observed only "during unlocking the Analog Clock Screen with menu key". The upper semi circle of the clock is slightly purple tinted.one can think that its desined in that way only to give a fancy look to the analog clock. no where else its visible. So its not a problem to me.please stop highlighting the negligible things. Instead, lets discuss about the OS upgrades.

Afridi, 30 Apr 2011Does Anyone Know When will Symbain Anna release officially?@Afridi.
Anna is available now if you buy a C7 Astound, or an X7.
Nokia have preloaded those two handsets with Anna.
As for the N8, there is no official date for the Anna update, other than Nokia saying it will be here sometime this Summer.
This is the thing that is causing a lot of loyal Nokia users a great deal of frustration. Clearly, Anna is ready now but still isn't available for existing handsets.
Mind you, HTC have done exactly the same thing with the Gingerbread update. They have released the Desire S with the update pre-loaded, but owners of the other Desire models such as the HD and Z variants will have to wait until August / September for the update even though Gingerbread has been available since December 2010.
Samsung are also guilty of the same thing to an extent. They did offer the Gingerbread update just over a week ago then pulled it on the same day. I suspect it was due to the fact they want people to buy their new Galaxy S 2, which comes with Gingerbread, but if the existing Galaxy S has Gingerbread, most people wouldn't bother to upgrade to the new model just yet. However, Google have been implicated in the decision to pull the update so it's purely my own speculation to blame Samsung for it as a marketing ploy.
All the best.
I purchased N8 in 13th Oct/2010, & can proudly say, hats off to Nokia for such a nice ph. Excelant picture quality bot still & movie, excelant data speed in 3G network itcan give up to 100.2 Mbps spee depending on network. Only thing spake vol is very poor. Allthough there are push mail featuers but did not work properly. Before to purchase this I was confused what to buy BB- Torch or N8, finally gone for N8. But pushmail featuers is not upto the mark. Other wise ph is very good.
I finally bought an N8. In regards to the purple tint issue, many of the retailers here in the Philippines are very much aware of the issue itself and guaranteed that the phones will be free of it. They even gave a 7 day factory defect warranty, in which if I found something, I can hand the unit back and get another on the same day.
Result: The one I bought was pre-installed with PR 1.1. I checked it thoroughly (I'm a perfectionist, so I was very thorough) and found no trace of the purple tint. Going home, I updated the phone to PR 1.2 and did another test... There's a reddish tint within a certain shade of gray, but otherwise, it displayed colors perfectly. Something with PR 1.2 messed the display config, since the screen was fine before that.
Tip: If you can, buy from a retailer and ask them to let you check the unit before you buy. You can try asking the retailer if they're aware of the issue and what they'd do if you encountered it with the phone. I'm pretty sure the new ones are free of this defect, since I haven't seen anyone else complaining about it (from the ones who bought it recently anyway).
