I was really over joyed while buying my Nokia N8 ... but sorry to day that my Joy didnt last long ...
I was observing small performance issues like 'Back' button not working, Music player widget getting hanged etc but after 2 weeks my N8 just died ... automatically it switched off and then never turned on even with 2 days of continues charging ... I have returned to back to the Nokia store ...

Aaron, 28 Mar 2011N8 overheats faster and gets hotter than other phones because of the aluminium body. the phone is made of aluminium it means it moves heat
away from the processor faster then other materials.
so there is no possible way it can overheat(not even in your wildest dreams or what ever you are having).i am realy pleased with my N-8 i have had it for close to 6 moths now with absolutly no problems at all.
Gitty, 28 Mar 2011I am ready to sell if any1 can take it 4m me for 18k then I could buy galaxy s 2 !i want to purcsae
[deleted post]Fanboys like you will always deny any fault, defect or short comming of this phone. You're like one of the fanboys who said the defect was all in our minds when this defect broke out on the internet. Well you know what? Nokia acknowledged the defect and the defect is real. Not because you're not affected by it means that the N8 is defect free.
The proof is out there in case you don't know. Google "N8 purple screen defect" and you will get a lot of tesults.
Now tell me it's not real.
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2011That's not true. Both N8s from Finland and China are affected by the purple screen defect. ... moremade in finland and made in china is the same , only asslemble in findland but all componets in china

those who r facing problem with purple screen issue should sell their n8 to get rid of this problem bcoz updates will not fix this issue and nokia is not taking serious action till now ..its been one month and no genuine solution has been seen from nokia to fix this issue .nokia is very irresponsible and lazy now a days ...as their is still second batch of n8 in market so those who r planning to buy handset its recommended not to buy just now and to wait till fresh batch of n8 hits market otherwise anyone can be victim of facing this problem.....people are enjoying their n8 those who have got 100% perfect device ..from past one month daily purple screen issues are increasing ,............

Johnny, 28 Mar 2011Planning to buy the Nokia N8, but would like to know the status about the purple screen... ... moreIt is most irritating when watching videos, but almost invisible in most parts of the interface. You can live with it I am sure.
For those who just bought the N8 and are having very bad battery life... Fret not, for the poor battery life in the first few charges is completely normal! After a charge and drain cycle of about a week, the battery life of my N8 has improved drastically. At first it won't even last for a day, but now it lasts even longer! I wonder how long it would take for my N8 to last for 2 days, just as the other people say,...
Awful phone, I really regret buying it.
It looks nice, but its slow and just doesn't work properly. It has lots of small problems. Things don't work logically and other phones have driven the expectations of the smart-phones very high, N8 just can not comply with them.
The problems can be of course sorted out, but I don't have time to go through dozens of forums and learn how to "properly" use my phone in order for it to work normally. eg. I don't want to be deleting manually the hotspots from my phone in order for it to show me the call logs of past 30 days (it deletes them ever day despite I want it to keep them 30 days).
Big disappointment which have been fuelled by very high expectations!
