Aman, 14 Mar 2011I have looked into soo many sites/forum and every where. I see each 98 out of 100 Nokia N8 use... moreHi Aman,
How you did take samples for your survey? my opinion you not do proper methode of statistic.
Please be fair, no perfect handset up to now since I change the handset few time a year, not because I am have alot money but I have a hand phone shop and i do trade in.
I sold more then 100 N8 but only few complain about purple/redish display, so be carefull with yr statement, if you are not in the good luck, maybe nokia will sue you and I am sure you will in the big troubles.
My opinion, the best handset at this time is Nokia N900, I got it 6 months ago and not new set but some one trade in with BB Torch.
Up to day I never think to change it since N900 is a micro PC which now we call its TAB/TABLET and again my opinion N900 is more powerfull, faster and better File Management for application then others TAB even tought others TAB have 1GHz CPU but ofcourse the display SGS is better.
May God bless you and pls dont make more sin, hehehe.
Atar_cool, 14 Mar 2011I sad nokia is the best phone manufacturer ever. Its best from the first time. But, there so m... morehi we got the same id U}}x (well.. sometimes my id change to that)

All the people who give irrational/bad comment about other products are the people do not have money to buy that products, they just have 1(one) unit mobile phone.
jo, 13 Mar 2011still under consideration to buy N8 coz i heard alot of ppl complaining N8 is not good enough.... morei have been using N8 for almost a month now. Am happy with it. No issues of purple screen. Pros :- Excellent reception, GPS, 3G calls, Very smooth touch and feed back, Good Camera (but not so good under flash light).
Cons :- had to restart atleast twice in this one month. But nothing serious.
I have 3 phones:
1. Nokia N8
2. Apple iPhone 4
3. Samsung Galaxy S II
I know it costs very high but each devices has its own feature: I like my Nokia N8 (3 months old) in terms of camera and music capabilities. Apple iPhone 4 (1 month old) for its good OS, UI and apps. And my Samsung Galaxy S for its great look, UI and OS.
For me there is no perfect phone this time. I'm a Symbian user for at least 7 years and 3 years for iOS and new to Android. I changed my devices everyear. PLEASE DON'T TRY TO COMPARE DIFFERENT COMPANIES BECAUSE THEY HAVE THEIR OWN UNIQUENESS.
Aaron, 14 Mar 2011At least, Android got everything right in 2011. And new features and updates keep coming and i... moregot everything right? My god mate, there is still so much to improve for android os. One for which is a folder management system. My bro has a galaxy s woth tons of apps in it and it is such a pain to wade through the apps in the just to find a specific app which i want to use.
How fast do you want the software updates to come? One each day?
sun, 14 Mar 2011Hi guys ,, very odd problem in my n8 is that while talking automatic speaker switching on,,,,... moreThis is becouse the touch screen activate the option as you hold the handset on your ear, just switch the screen lock before you put the hand set on your ear.
I have looked into soo many sites/forum and every where. I see each 98 out of 100 Nokia N8 users got the defective phones. They got the Nokia N8 phones which have defective or low-quality/expired/thrown-away screen. So I would recoment that, Please please postphone your plan to buy Nokia N8 till they start to put good screen. Else just follow up with Nokia service centre everyday & get frustrated by there irresponsible behaviour.
beware of n8 guys, i told u before. fanboys now are hating nokia n8.haha - concern citizen
adkane, 14 Mar 2011well it took android a few years to get a proper bluetooth transfer and the ability to install... moreAt least, Android got everything right in 2011. And new features and updates keep coming and it just keeps getting better and better in time. Symbian, on the other hand, always fails to deliver in time. Add to that the fact that sooner, Symbian will be dead. And Nokia will be starting from scratch again. And most Nokia fanboys will be alienated. But I'm telling you now, there is no refuge for lost Nokia fanboys but Android.
