[deleted post]Choose N8, you will never regret it, I am so happy with my device, it is superb, it has all the features you want, yes it has fm transmitter.
Ovi store is great. I am enjoying all the great stuff in it. I want to go home now coz' I'm missin' my N8, can't bring it to work, too bad, it is not allowed in the office, huhu.
I am also experiencing this purple tint defect but not that bad, it is not noticeable, My N8 is showing slight purple in dark gray shadings. I might return it for replacement if this will be worse.
Guys, How to check the Manufacturing date or batch?
aj2010, 29 Apr 2011what world r u from?
where u cant see any good in N8?
last 3 months i've had 3 N8, and guess... moreI'm from Earth and not from some fantasy Nokia land you live in where all Nokia phones are perfect. This phone is positively defective. 10 out of 10 boxes we opened turned out to have the purple issue and the stupid store attendant told us it is made that way. He showed us a C7 and another N8 with the same issue. We proved to him it's a defect and he refused to open up more boxes for us.

I don't know how bad your phone's tint is, but AMOLEDs in general have a slight color tint to them. It's just like LCD's no-true-black problem. LCDs can't show true blacks and there is no way to fix that.
My brother's C7 also has a very slight tint but it isn't really noticeable.
There might be some perfectly calibrated AMOLED displays with no tint at all, but they are hard to find.
It seems that your phone's tint problem is a serious one and nokia care hasn't been able to fix it.
To be honest, there are people, even here on gsmarena, who are reporting that their phones have been fixed.
I hope you can get your phone fixed too, soon.
AnonD-7337, 29 Apr 2011Which is better N8 or E7? Does N8 have skype video calling.? Hlp..me guys....Hey utkarsh!..i suggest u go for the n8..considering the fact that the only difference b/w them is the QWERTY keyboard in the e7 and the 8mp fixed focus vs the 12mp auto focus camera in the n8..n considering the 7k price difference n8 seems the better bet...but of course if u r into heavy messaging n editing docs ..the e7 is a fantastic device too..it has a 4 inch CBD screen compared to 3.5 inch screen of the n8..but lacks a memory card slot restricting the memory to 16 gigs which is sufficient in most cases..
Unfortunately neither e7 nor n8 have skype video calling yet ..jus the audio calling feature is available..however there are various other apps which let u video call over wifi such as TING..
before buying check if thier is the fm transmitter and the display problem does not exist on the device. Your Welcome
frnds does any one have facing problem in video calling? when i make a video call i cant hear the sound in my ear phone. its just turned on the loud speaker.
Yesterday, I bought my very own N8, it is superb!!!, I just finished installing some themes and applications, but I noticed that my unit is also affected with purple screen, but it is not a problem, it can't be noticeable as it blends with the theme's colors.
By the way, may be by next month, I will return to the store and will look for the better one, but mine is just fine. Lets see for how many days, because for now I can't get my hands off to this superb n8, I'm glad I got a high speed internet plan, slow browsing is not a problem with my N8, this thing is fast. Very excited for the Symbian Ana
P.S. anyone here knows how to check the manufacturing date or something like production batch? Thnks
AnonD-2665, 29 Apr 2011hi,itz worldwide problem of nokia n8 and i think nokia is unable to do anything in this matter... moreA friend of mine is a hardcore Nokia fan and he's due for a HUP on his carrier. He was going to get an N8 and we can't find a perfect one. We'll try again over the weekend on another store and I can't convince him to go Android.
Anyhow, goodluck getting it fixed.
Ain't got one yet but is it true that there's that clicking sound/noise when "recording videos"?
...i have watched samples of n8's video rec. tests on youtube and it always has that noise especially when the lens "auto" focuses on the subject(like when recording in close ranges with the subj.)
Also,is there a difference in autofocus and continuous autofocus when it comes to recording videos???
[deleted post]hi,itz worldwide problem of nokia n8 and i think nokia is unable to do anything in this matter ! Most of the buyer,seller r not aware of this defect ! People dont even know that they r using defective n8 ! U can wait till the next batch or for x7 ! I think E7 is nt ve this defect ! I am using defective n8 (purple red screen) and i ve planned to submit it to nokia care in july-august and i hope there ll be defect free screen available by that time !
