You can't expect Nokia to check all their phones before they hand it out to the market? Are you simply crazy??? Or your IQ is just too low? So its alright with you to receive a phone that has not been QUALITY tested by any manufacturer? How crazy dude.....
I have the first version of Nokia N8 and since I got it had nothing but trouble. Just last week I took it to Nokia Care and they updated the software and told me all 1st version N8's had battery issue's, screen going blank and switching off and on by itself (preety much what was happening to mine).
After they updated my phones software, it has fixed all those issues and battery perfomance is much better. All I wish now is they fix the internet browser..

guys i wanna buy n8 badly.bt i realy cnt decyd wid half of u guys criticizing it lyk its a piece ov overprice junk and half of u callng it a cellfne wnder plzzz ppl help me out here cz i dnt wana get into any serious trble
it is confirmed that the purple screen defect is from the faulty screen..and most are from december batch..the only solution is to replace set or screen... So check it while buying only.. I got this information from some trusted site.. Be careful while checking the screen because it may not show any signs in bright color and in full brightness.. So always check gray and black color pictures or the analog clock screen saver..
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2011Its not a theme! It is a defect! This is my second N8, my 1st N8 has no purple screen defect. ... morethats cos u got taken for a ride my friend. they did not change the motyerboard. they changed your phone wth a defective one. probably one of their friends had a defective unit and they swoppedcit for your good one telling u they replaced the motherboard to exppain the new imei number

AnonD-2869, 12 Mar 2011Wow.....I may believe 1 out of 100 or 1000,I'd believe it,can you show us some proof? and wow.... moreI repeat:
I can not post my N8's IMEI# in the internet of course but I can send it to you if you add me. My email address is email@example.com Most of my available times are 8am-9am, 11pm-12am Bahrain time.
If you will not reply within a month it means you are coward. You are afraid to face the reality. Do not cover up the mistakes of the Nokia & do not suggest to others to ignore the defects on their phones. Feed up!!!!!

Now who wants to dare? To all Nokia staffs, I know you are reading comments here in GSM Arena, what is your next step after I prove to you my N8's problem? Are you going to replace it with a non-defect N8 or again will IGNORE it? You don't care about your customers unless the customers shout it in the Internet. My demand is very simple, we pay your products cash not by installments not by credits, then give us what we deserve for... a Non-defect Nokia phones. Right? This is what the Nokia advertise in all forms of Media. In the commercials N8 looks so wonderful phone but in reality some are defectives. If you will replace my N8 with a Non-defect N8, I promise I will not tell any bad things or post anything on the net. We need ACTIONS please!
This is actually a very good phone. I wasn't bothered by symbian^3. It's not that bad of an os. It's nt the best but it delivers functionality well.
The only issues for me was the input of text especially while writing a message and the built in browser. It was such a weird thing to change from one screen to another just so you can type. I wish Nokia would update the browser to support multi-tabs just like on the I-phone.
