For those who intend to buy the N8, make sure that you are not fond of placing down the phone on car seats, sofa ( esp. leather )or on top of table with mat because you will have difficulty in hearing the ringtone when somebody calls you. The reason behind is the location of the speaker hole at the back tends to be blocked when the bottom portion is in contact.Actually, i am already getting used in getting missed calls. It will be unusual to turn the phone around placing the touch screen first. Nevertheless, just want the readers to observe this detail first before buying the N8 but if you're cool with that concern then the N8 is a good phone to have!
I've been using mine for 4 months already and it works fine except one important event ( my daughter's dance number in school) where i need to use the video recording and wella !!!!... it hanged!!! It kept on indicating an error. So i restarted the phone immediately and by the time it was ready, the dance was already over.....Anyway, aside from that, everything is ok!!!!
SamV, 25 Apr 2011This phone is simply fabulous. Quick to use and after all it's Nokia, excellent build quality.... moreI love my phone ..but i have a problem with the focus of the lens...my photos and videos are blurry, and i have done everythin,but still no clear pictur..it worked perfectly..but after 3 weeks i have this problem...please help
garry, 26 Apr 2011@ rdca hey my friend as you told that its driver chip problem ...then there is no way to solve... moreThe problem is that we are the ones who's bearing the responsibility to push the NCCs to keep on replacing the unit or the screen until we get lucky with a non defective unit. Does that sound right to you guys? We, the customers, have to keep bugging Nokia until we get lucky with a unit with a perfect screen. It would have been a lot better if we can just walk into a NCC, show them our defective N8, get an apology from the staff and walk away with a defect free unit. This is not the case and what's happening is that depending on who you talk to, you'll get diferent answers. Some will argue it's a feature of AMOLED screens, others will say they have no clue, and a few will offer you to replace the screen and still have the defect after it gets replaced. It's like Nokia is making us go in circles and the majority of N8 users don't even have a clue about the purple screen defect.
This is unacceptable. We had this problem since January and Nokia is aware of it and admitted the defect but there is still no solution in sight and this defect is worldwide! People are now mad at the official forums. Check it out.

Since Will Announced N8 April 2010 up to final released of Nokia N8 last october 2010 Gi... more@ rdca hey my friend as you told that its driver chip problem ...then there is no way to solve this problem unless nokia changes full amoled screen with its original driver chip..changing only screen is not full solution...and i guess the amoled screen is fine in all models only the driver chip which had created the problem which is not compatible with the screen they r using...and no symbian anna or any updates can solve this problem ....don't know when or what solution will nokia take out to solve this problem..but one thing is clear if nokia now buys original driver chip from samsung to fix this issue then definitely samsung will bear a huge loss and if they want to satisfy the customers they have to bear loss.....
Just a quick note, i cannot believe the high quality of the microphone during video recording.
Since Will Announced N8 April 2010 up to final released of Nokia N8 last october 2010 Gitty,Wheeze,Amanita is here and most trusted people,
Man Your wrong, For those New Comer In this forum Gitty, Amanita, Wheeze is the most trusted in this forum, So pleases stop thinking bad sense for gitty , All mentioned is true,
1.) Power Failure,overheating is true For the First Batch N8 and it fixed done,
2.) Hanging Is True For old sofware 011.011 but will fixed it done New Sofware 011.012, And other Buggs will fixed PR 1.1 014.002
3.) Reddish Purle Tint Is True For the Second Batch, It Sad up to now there's no solusyon in this problem, Even Nokia Engineer They Know what the major cause, Even it replace it how many times Amoled screen but it the same result,
Some Speculation According To Muzart Reason 2nd batch of N8 has Reddish purple tint is,
-> Because Amoled Screen, Nokia Changed it own driver capable than original manufacturer, So Now From the second batch of N8, Nokia buy Amoled Screen Only Not Included the driver chip of original manufacture,
This is only the mistake of Nokia, The Solusyon in this problem is need a driver chip came from original manufacturer of amoled,
-> So Nokia Driver Chip and Amoled Not Compatible, It one of speculation why 2nd batch of N8 has reddish purple tint, The only solusyon on this problem is nokia need spend more money to buy samsung driver chips that compatible in Amoled Screen, But i doub it Nokia Spend money for this issued, Because Nokia Will Save Money For Windows 7 phone,
Purple Tint Not Cause any risk performane of Nokia N8, No Doubt For this, Just Wait For symbian Anna see what happened i hope will fixed it,
Anyway Im happy and Proud To Be owner Nokia N8, its great brilliant Camera,great gpu, Usb otg, free lifetime gps, great music sound, Waiting Symbian Ana update 3x faster internet browser....
sabbir, 26 Apr 2011This phone seems to be more than adequate for a user (me) who has been using Nokia 5320 xpress... more1. 680MHz is perfectly fine for a symbian^3 phone, because almost everything is hardware accelerated. Just watch this video and you can see for yourself.
Also, there are no N8-01 or dual-core nokias coming.
2. Yes. There are some N8s with that problem. Check the phone at store before buying. Here you can read about the issue:
3. N8's battery should last for two days with average use.
this mobile is really good...it has many intresting applications,games etc., its a user friendly..and i recommend this mobile for all users...
hi nokia team i want to information abt ,difernce between nokia n8,n7.....
This phone seems to be more than adequate for a user (me) who has been using Nokia 5320 xpress music since August 2008. Hope N8 serves the purpose of a high resolution digital camera too, it has the display of 3.5"(same as iphone4) that is impressive. EDGE class is 33 which sounds good (although i donno how good it would be and how fast it could be). Bangladesh is a poor country so i need to be very careful while spending money (37,500 BDT) for this device and it goes without saying 37,500 is a lot of money to me. Guyz like u also helped me before purchasing 5320. Now u guyz gotta give me some answers honestly. i am an elec. engr. so i know very well what the specs means.
1. Processing speed is 680MHz which is slower while comparing with equivalent SE of Galaxy-s and many of u know N8-01 is coming with a dual core 1GHz processor. Can this set play things pretty faster ??
2. What about the purple screen issue ?
3. The battery life of 5320 is pathetic so i never wanna buy any handset which provides such poor battery life. I know it does depend on what a user do in his/her handset, well i usually do what most other 27yr guys do.
Any user review will be highly appreciated, i know there are thousand of those posted before me but it is disgusting to sort things out like that and i believe there are hundreds of buyers of this set who love to share there experience with me.
good bye.......im waiting for ur reply.
