I hope they will allow me to check the screen first. By the way, are you a Saudi?

Here's what a defective N8 screen looks like.
The silver N8 on the left shows reddish tone on the analog clock while the black N8 is fine. The silver N8 on my link below is defective.

People People People. The redish screen DOES NOT MEAN that the screen is defected, if you have the clock in DIGITAL you will see black as black. The new firmware 1.1 fixes all the lagging issues. The Camera is superb, the music is clear and load, the screen is bright and nice, the build is super strong, the features are very useful, i've been using my N8 for 3 months and I have not had a problem with it.
Carphone Jeff, 27 Mar 2011Nokia N8 has an extremely amazing camera especially the additional feature of cal zesis. The h... morer u nuts? have u seen a single complaint in any form about n8 processor being slow?

Cheers!
I want to buy a phone for listening a music, watching videos & movies. Is this phone a good choice or i should go for little bigger screen phones? Can we watch online movies on n8?
AnonD-324, 28 Mar 2011Planning to buy the Nokia N8, but would like to know the status about the purple screen...
... morePerfect units are hard to find but they are out there. Just insist on getting the screen checked and look at the analog clock. If you see anything reddish or purple then get another unit. Anything reddish or purple on the analog clock means it's defective.
Do not listen to the sales guy if he/she says that it's normal. It is not. A perfect AMOLED screen will show black as black and not reddish or purple. Nokia Care is replacing defective units with defective units. They are currently in short supply of the perfect screen to replace the defective ones.
Check out my link below so you will have an idea on how a defective N8 screen looks like. Once again, insist on a perfect screen.

rcda, 27 Mar 2011 hi gitty may i know hows your n8 now is fixed reddish purple replacement new... moreWow! You had your N8 replaced 6x already? And it's still defective? That must be frustrating. I feel sorry for you. Just wait for the 3rd batch and cross your fingers it's going to be defect free.
[deleted post]It seems your april comes pretty early ;) . However the N8 sensor itself is capable of 1080p recording but the camera buffer isn't large enough.
