Nokia N8 is a not good, they are expensive but not really good. I used to be an avid Nokia buyer. but not anymore. they don't really improve their products.

Its suck..
Its not a phone. Its a Media Center, but, it can work as a phone sometimes. Thats all
I had my first N8 in Oct 2010. It was black, and really problematic. Used to freeze, restart and at times refused to accept the call as the screen froze. I was really disappointed as I loved its camera and other features but could not carry on with these problems. i also read about the defective motherboards on N8 and the symptoms mine was facing would have to end in it being dead. So I sold it before it could die on me. Now on 15th March, I got a new Silver N8 and must say its awesome. maybe the software upgrade has sorted out the glitches, but I love the colour. It looks really cool and now I am enjoying every moment of my new N8.
I feel sorry for the guys having problems with their sets, I can feel their anguish. Thankfully, for me this is over and I am able to get a defect free N8.
N8 mods have been updated to v6.00. Download from http://geekifysymbian.blogspot.com/
Install mod #24 to get rid of purple screen problem
nokia doesn't know exactly from which point this problem had occured....out of 100,70% handset is defected by this purple reddish problem and samsung is big and too big from nokia ,they can't give nokia 70% defective amoled screen..so basically its nokia hardware graphic chipset problem and if its then its very difficult to solve this problem bcoz this problem is in large scale and nokia can't change hardware in large scale bcoz by this they can have a big loss so thats y nokia is showing their ignoring attitude towards this problem.......
All purple....no gray/black (i m fron Delhi/India)
nokia care denied to accept it as a fault.....
they showed the same on c7 and many other n8 and said this is characteristics of this amoled screen.

My N8 is just brilliant, everything it does with great fluancy!, no probs at all!i cann't imagine any other mobile will ever be better than N8!Now I cann't imagine living without N8!Cheers Nokia!!!
last week my n8 was hanged and it is replaced by nokia care and will deliver about 3 weeks later.i am really shocked.
Aaron, 16 Mar 2011I'm not quite sure. But it will be better if you bring your unit to NC and ask the guys there ... morei'm considering that option but as of the moment, i think i'll hold on to my n8 for a little while until there's a known solution for the amoled problem. i've read some ncc's don't know how to fix it and worse, some even received their unit with scratches in it after ncc returned it. thanks anyway.
I have problems sometimes with my N8 it freezes, I have to restart the phone before I can use it, is there any tweaks for this? Thanks
Very good,excellent phone,just dont knwhow to clear or format phone memory
I need to buy n8. but still confused. coz last month 1 of my frd bought n8 and he suffering lots of prbm...need help... :(
