N8 is not so good phone I think, because it does not have Android os and having only 680Mhz CPU.
Best buy Sony Ericsson Android phones whichnhave 1Ghz CPU.
I finally installed the 6 home screen and hyperx v7 mods. Waited because I was apprehensive. How has the phone been since? Damn! I feel like Ive grown wings! The camera used to be great, now I dont even know what to say. This thing simply blows my mind! I cant believe the DSLR quality shots Ive been getting. Overall performance Has improved. I love this freakin phone!!!
[deleted post]Hi there,
if i were n0t mistaken, you got your n86 then switch to samsung pix0n12 am i right?
I am also onE of th0se fans of n86. Ive got my n8 with n0 pr0blem on screen, how bout you?
okia’s choice of using an aged ARM 11 implementation, down-clocked to 680 Mhz (instead of the spec’d 772 Mhz) for its CPU may draw criticism in this day and age of gigahertz-capable, multi-core mobile SoC’s. But digging a little deeper seems to show that there may be some method to this madness. You see, pretty much everything in the N8 runs around the BCM2727 media processor. I would hazard a calculated guess that apart from lightweight low-level OS functions and interfacing with the baseband and other radio’s, there isn’t much else for the CPU to do on the N8. Plus, Symbian’s inherently efficient use of available resources helps too.
So what was needed in this case was a low-power, package efficient CPU design that could just about get the job done while sipping as little power and occupying as little space as possible. And this is almost exactly what Nokia found in the Samsung K5WXXXXXXX series of Fusion Memory MCP’s. This MCP (Multi Chip Package) allows Samsung to stack different memory types (DDR, NAND etc.) along with non-memory logic in the same low-power package. So for basically the same footprint as a single memory chip, Samsung is able to integrate the DDR memory (256MB), NAND (512MB) and a CPU (TI ARM11 applications processor).
Most of the heavy lifting in the N8 is done by the BCM2727, as it renders the Symbian^3 UI and games alike, works with the camera module to capture and process 12MP stills and 720p videos, encodes/decodes those videos, drives the HDMI output (upto 720p) and even decodes the audio. So in case of the N8 and Symbian^3, it made sense for Nokia to have a low-power ARM11 CPU coupled with a reasonably powerful and competent multimedia processor. Using an A8 Cortex-based 1Ghz+ part here to run Symbian^3 would have been overkill and power-inefficient. And this decision is quite obvious when you use the N8. The UI is very fluid and responsive with crisp transitions and swift app switching. Furthermore, the N8 posted very competitive battery life numbers to further substantiate Nokia’s decision here.
[deleted post]Hmmm...i bet you don't this phone. Your comment is just too general. ..
I am facing the problem while watchng tron legacy,size 2gb,720x304 resolution ! It stop playin after 1 hour,pause automatically nt playing ! Whatz d solution ? Plz help !
Hi boys and girls. after the last update i made to the phone 014.002 on the profile bar at the home screen i get (GDC0112 OR GDC0083). those codes are replacing the name of the profile every few seconds they stay for a few seconds and the story goes on.
any idea what they mean? thanks in advance
