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.

This phone is simply fabulous. Quick to use and after all it's Nokia, excellent build quality. I have a question. I can't seem to play videos on my PC although on the phone it is fine. Is there any setting or something of that sort? It's been 3 days since I have been using this phone. I can't wait for the major update that's yet to come (Symbian Anna). If anyone has faced the issue please revert to this post. Tx a million.

[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 !
AnonD-4644, 25 Apr 2011Hey guys,please honestly tell me,does the handset still hang? i mean the new lot handsets also... moreplease check this link for those who are saying that there is hanging problem in N8. See how much programs are opened at a time. This phone is working smooth. Best multitasking phone ever designed by nokia.

I bought this...Its a very nice phone...Still now I didn't get any problems with it...Battery also good....
AnonD-1082, 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.
philm, 25 Apr 2011Yes i see ur point.I am just sort of getting into the N8 swing of things.All i know is that my... moreYour friend is wrong. It's very easy to see the purple screen defect. All you need to do is look at the analog clock and if it looks purple then your screen is defective.
Here is what the analog clock looks like with the defect.
