NCCs might change the display and put yet another problematic display in its place. If they do, then you must put them under pressure until they fix it. Sue them if you have to. You've paid for the phone and they must give you proper service.
There are people who returned they devices and received a fixed unit.
If I decide to by an N8, I'd check it in the shop, and even examine it with that testing picture.
[deleted post]you are getting emotional, nobody has denied anyu of your claims, when you admit that yours has been replaced, dont you think you admit that nokia is doing something? the replaced set still is on waranty, am just sorry for you you have to take it back, when you are getting the replacement if at all you have one, why dont you conduct the screen test and if you find the same problem ask for another one untill you get the right thing, dont yopu think you have a ryt to the product you have paid for? all am saying is be practical, and stop calling people fanboys, bringing apple up was just to show you how others are being treated and the fact that Nokia admits responsibility is a plus for them to anyone doing business with them, period
sammi giggs, 24 Apr 2011nobody has denied there are sets that are defective, the fact that Nokia admits is a huge stat... moreNokia admited the defect and they told us that the new defect free screens are now in stock so a fellow member of nokiausers.net, buxz777 sent his N8 to get the screen replaced but it was replaced with a defective screen. To add more insult, there are now dust particles underneath the screen of his N8.
Admitting the defect is one thing but the more important thing is getting the affected units fixed which Nokia fails to do until now.
[deleted post]nobody has denied there are sets that are defective, the fact that Nokia admits is a huge statement of responsibility, then again Nokia is ready to address the problem, remeber Iphone statement about the signal bars, "it the way you hold the set" was that responsible, or Samsung producing the wave 1 and because it was expensive to produce the super amoled screens silently benching it n even denying it some firmware upgrades? please lets be practical and stop trolling when we cannot lay our hands on a set. am a proud owner of the N8, Samsung Wave S8500, Nokia N95 8gb and the 5800xm, I aint bashing any, am I
eddman, 24 Apr 2011Here:
See, there are N8s wit... moreYou see that guy who made that thread? That's buxz777. He sent his N8 and got his screen replaced with a defective screen. There are perfect N8s out there but they are hard to find. You are downplaying an issue in which Nokia themselves adilmitted and has yet to provide a proper solution to the problem.
You guys think I'm trolling for trying to get the public aware of the defect? I'm just trying to get the people aware so they won't fall for a defective N8. What do you guys think you are doing then? Trying to cover up the defect eh?
I wonder if any kind soul can help? Recently, I receieved a picture send to me by bluetooth and selected the image for call. Thereafter, whenever there is a call, this picture pops up. May I know how to remove this. Thanks.
[deleted post]stop being a troll, I got the set about a week ago, 10 days to be precise, I did the screen test and no problem, do you have the set? I am no fanboy, I have the 5800 xm and it had issues, I took it to NCC it was sorted, the problem cropped up agin and I was issued a new set. thats practical, at least as you claim, the sets are being sorted, and apparently the problem will be sorted out for good for those who got the defective units, by trolling do you think you are going to stop me from enjoying my set? if you do not have an N8, go get yourself one then now you can be positive, many here are bashing the N8 yet they do not own it, envy I should say, grow up please. if it is an awareness campaign, its not working cause N8 still leads

See, there are N8s without that problem. Now stop trolling.
YES, you might buy an N8, and it might be defective, BUT it does not mean all of them are. Return your defective unit immediately, and push on until they give you a proper unit or fix your problem.
eddman, 24 Apr 2011Yes, the purple tint issue is real, but it only affected a small percentage of N8s. Hell, even... moreThen how come Nokia is unable to provide us with a proper solution and how come they are replacing defective units with defective units if it only affects a small percentage? The screens they are using to replace a defective screen also have the defect and that brings you nowhere.
It may appear like only a small percentage of units are affected as the majority of N8 owners are unaware of the defect.
Stop downplaying the defect and there are no official percentage stats on how much defective N8s are out there in the wild.
Yes, the purple tint issue is real, but it only affected a small percentage of N8s. Hell, even iphone 3GS had a 7% return rate (defective units).
Stop spreading lies and FUD (Fear, uncertainty and doubt).
Really Bad from Nokia,
This is my 3rd time to give Nokia care by N8 and still have the purple tint in the screen, it's less appearing but it's exist!
Very bad Nokia after sales!
i think it'll be my last Nokia device! after like 10 Nokia device along with my life and only one Samsung device.
i'll never accept to receive my N8 again with this defective screen, also i'm thinking now to call the police for this issue!
[deleted post]these r blind fanboys ! Nokia themselves admitted the defect but these blind fanboys r nt ready to accept !
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2011Our buddy, buxz777 over at nokiausers.net just got his N8 back after Nokia promised him that t... more You can be a Nokia basher but I for 1 aint ready to believe you, yes, there could be a problem with some sets, that's ok, Apple Iphone 4 has network problems, did you get the answer they had for their customers? I know what happens with Nokia, if a set cannot be repaired while still on warranty, you get a completely new set for replacement. how comes you are the one highlighting the problem. unless you bought yourselves the imitation Chinese nokia or nokla sets. I come from Kenya and I can vouch for Nokia, if a set cannot be sorted, you get a replacement on warranty period
aman sran, 24 Apr 2011does nokia n8 supports whatsapp messenger anyone????yes....whatsapp messeger can be downloaded from the ovi store and it is a free app too ( for a period of 1 year)
phone arena, 15 Feb 2011galaxy s II have HDMI and USB OTG as wellgalaxy s2 is releasing almost a year later than the announcement of the n8..u cannot compare these 2 devices
however, n8 still has a superior camera and a better battery life.
As far as USB OTG is concerned, i think galaxy s2 supports only pendrives...whereas the n8 can run any USB device such as a mouse, keyboard, speakers, Harddisks (FAT 32 only) and card readers etc....
it can charge any other phone....
Why people tend to ask such a stupid qtns...
Do N8 support this? Do N8 support that?
Nokia N8 supports everything...
If you hate Nokia then buy a stupid iphone, Steve jobs will teach you everything including how to hold the phone and many more stupidities...
