[deleted post]i have replaced my phn 3 times
1st silver white-restarting problem,2nd s.w-power failure/dead ,3rd s.w-loudspeaker stopped working ! I got orange n8 on 8 january itz good but it has purplish red screen problem which is clearly noticeable ! My friend has n8 grey which doesnt have any prob. ! When i compared both phn in videos n some pic,i found that therez a purple.red screen colour in my phn while his n8 doesnt have it ! I contacted n.care but they said itz a design not a fault ! After that i read on the net many ppl have the same problem and nokia has admitted the defect but they were replacing it with another defective n8 ! I am just wishing to have a defect free n8 at least b4 my warranty period (28 october) ! I am student and itz really disturbing me to visit n.care again n again and i am also tired of replacing ! Each time they take phone and return it atleast after 20 days which is really annoying !

Anonymous, 25 Apr 2011Your friend is wrong. It's very easy to see the purple screen defect. All you need to do is lo... moreMy brother has a C7. He checked it with that test image and there is just a very very slight purple tint, which is hardly noticeable, and on analog clock screen, it's not noticeable at all.
To put it simply, when I look at the screen, I see black as black, not purple.
I told you before, I'll tell you again, there are tint-free devices out there and there are people who sent their defective ones for repair, and they fixed it.
This issue is real, yes. Some people sent it in for repairs and they didn't fix it, yes; but you're really pushing it when you say that non of the nokia care centers in the world are able to fix this problem. That is not true at all.
Gitty is really unlucky to have to send his/her phone for repairs 3 times, and still get it back just as defective as before; or just maybe he/she's lying.
A word of advice, if the same care center isn't able to fix it, then send it to another one.
If a care center fails to do its job, then contact nokia directly through their website's support, and if that does not help then sue the care center, if you have to.
Hey guys,please honestly tell me,does the handset still hang? i mean the new lot handsets also hang? i am planning to buy one soon,i will offcourse check for the purple tint, but just wanted to know whether it hangs a lot, thanx in advance
[deleted post]and wake up man,nokia themselve admitted the defect,oh may be u dnt knw abt that bcoz u r blind ! Anyway i love this phn thatz y i still ve it even I ve already replaced it 3 times ! Now again I ll submit it to nokia care but only if they ll ve defect free screens !
Nokia n8 costs 37000 and galaxy ace is 29000 rs in Pakistan .
GAlaxy s is better as it has 800mhz processor, better graphics and more ram + android 2.2 so it gives u better performance + more games and apps.
It has also a better screen I mean length to width ratio.
N8 only got a better camera nothing else
Unfortunately other Nokia phone over to suddenly give me for restart as indicating saturastes with multitasking
Symbian 3's 680Mhz should be compared to to 772Mhz Android speed. Because, Symbian is a lighter OS and requires less CPU. So, it means that N8 is not slow at all.
I'm using it and it never freezes and it is just amazing in overall...
[deleted post]who blind?
only a person who got a defective n8 we can call them blind, u should on the spot check when u purchase.

Here is what the analog clock looks like with the defect.
i got my n8 on apr 9 th
untill 23 rd apr i used my phone nothing went wrong
on 23 rd morning alamr was actiwated i switched off it can came to ofiz & try to get a call phones s display was black

Here, original and full arti... moreYes i see ur point.I am just sort of getting into the N8 swing of things.All i know is that my mate about 30 miles away has it and he said you have to go out of your way to notice this purple tint fiasco.He stated that i will be surprised by the battery stamina.
Have swayed from nokia this past 6 months to SGS and darkys roms but nokia/symbian is pulling me back,its always does.Before SGS had multi n-series devices but main fone for 12 months was e72.It seems a long way from my 7650 nearly 8 yrs ago.When you have used symbian for so long it stays engrined in you.
sammi giggs, 24 Apr 2011will you stop pointing pple to other pples posts in different forums, do you have a set thats ... moreSpare them some flack? We've been banging at Nokia's door since January and it's been almost 5 months now! That's plenty of time for them to make adjustments. Look buddy, what you're trying to do here is defending Nokia's inability to solve the issue. If there are clear cut solutions to this problem then it would have been known on the net in no time. So far, Nokia keeps telling us to take our defective N8s to NCCs but even the NCCs don't have the defect free screens. This wouldn't have been an issue if this defect is being addressed properly but it's not! Nokia is making us go around in circles.
