C'mon guys, this purple screen is really not that big of an issue. I have it on my N8, but with choosing Nokia Dark theme and running LightCtrl while watching movies with lots of dark scenes, I just don't really notice it. Otherwise color reproduction of the screen is really superb.
It still is the best cameraphone, and really is not that much expensive. Every mobile has its problems. Would you rather choose much more expensive iPhone4 with Death grip problem? Or Samsung Galaxy with useless GPS unit? What did Steve Jobs said? Just don't hold it that way? Well I can say to you: Just don't watch Tron: Legacy, or use LightCtrl while watching it.
There you go people. If this is a good phone why are there so many complaints and angry users? Nokia admirers feel betrayed. They are not getting what they paid for. Before buying a phone, check the negative comments, they can save you your time and money. Negative comments shows the bad side of the phone, so keep an eye on it. You just can't blame the previous nokia admirers. We alreadly lost trust in NOKIA due to their faulty products. And Nokia can only blame their history. The USERS are the most important NOKIA, if you disappoint them, they will disappoint you. Ask the users, are there anyone, just ANYONE who did not have problems with NOKIA phones, for the past 10 years or so? That's enough time for improvement isn't it, but user's did not see it. The USERS made them to the TOP but it is also us, USERS that will flank them to the bottom.
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2011After owning 3 defective N8s I have finally got what i wanted....dont worry its another N8, bu... moreThat's 9 defective N8 out of 10. That's a very high rate of getting a defective unit. I'm happy you got a perfect unit and I feel sorry for the 9 would be owners of those defective N8s. Nokia better check their quality control.
[deleted post]I have also posted this in e7 forum originally.
Since the 3650 lauched i longed for a timer/stopwatch and asked many times for this to be implemented.Now to those who say why dont you go and build the app yourself,well.
1)Computer stuff is difficult to learn and i am no computer wizard,
1)Why should i when feature fones like s/e k800i or years old samsung d900 have these as standard.
Nokia did not grant the wishes of its customers after begging and pleading on these forums to emailing Nokia itself.We wanted a new n91 ,new n95 8gb new e90 its written all over the web what people wanted and we got nothing.I amongst others have got along rebuying n95 8gb and other n-series because after the n86 to me NOKIA CEASED.
I have been on these forums since 2003 and seen the lot from horrible slagging off to great speeches but even i too am admitting defeat.
I used to follow another member called Andy Burgin but have not seen his name for 2 years,has he left too after years of been a Nokia fan?
Nokia were doing well and the soldiered on lapping it up BUT they ignored the change in the market and their customers wishes leading to the state of affairs now.
I dont know what else to say,i hate the position of the market with all these silly touchscreens so have to put up with n86,n85,n79 as devices till ??????
Its a depressing state of affairs and with the econmy apple will also go by the wayside in next 18months.Everyone i know is DEFINETLY NOT entering into a 24 month contract so going pay as you go.They have not got the money to buy outright i=fone so ,yes, they are going Android.So whats to become of all this?? ZTE sweep in and take the market???
I dont know ,i just dont know.
Nokia official website, you can post any comments also, but Nokia still not doing any actions about purple screen defects.
After owning 3 defective N8s I have finally got what i wanted....dont worry its another N8, but without any flaws at all...no purple screen, freezing etc.
I mustve been lucky as I opened 10 boxes at the shop and found a blue N8 without a problem!!!
So happy with it and loving it a lot!!

Some Sony headphones for your budget

Go for Sony MDR-V150 but even that one is almost 40 bucks. If you want big cans with big bass then you can try Skull Candy but they won't reproduce a balanced sound and they tend to lean on heavy bass. If you can triple that budget then there are decent choices out there.

To all those experiencing a purple defective screen, Nokia have now officially acknowledged the fault and will repair your N8 under it's two year limited warranty.
Take your N8 along to your nearest Nokia Care Point to get it repaired.
All the best.
Another victim of defective N8:
After 4 months of its realease the Nokia N8 is still number one in daily interest. Thats impressive!!!
But even more impresive is the rating, the Nokia N8 is the top 2 rated phone of all times...
Too many trolls here, probably working for samsumg or apple...
N8 is the best, just look at the rankings!!
[deleted post]Haha! That fanboy thought you were a troll. These fanboys think we are trolling for exposing the cons and defects of this phone. They have never experienced what we did and none of the inconvenience of having a defective N8. The public must be warned for as long as Nokia hasn't sort this defect. They should have issued a recall on the defective batches until they get to the bottom of the issue
[deleted post]Just because you never experienced anything bad about the n8 doesn't mean the others were as lucky as you. How would you feel about sending your N8 a total of 3x and each replacements still have the purple screen defect? You have to use your old phone while it's away and it's really inconvenient. What you think are trolls are actually Nokia users and former fans who felt slighted with defective units. We are here to give warnings to potential buyers and to anyone to proceed with caution so that they won't experience the inconvenience of having a defective unit like what we did.
[deleted post]@ aaron yes i completely agree with u nokia this time have disappointed almost everyone..everyone is facing some kind of problem with this handset..nokia has shown its ignorance attitude towards problems and with users and fans who love nokia..problems r increasing day by day some new problems r building up and heard.these days screen purplish red problem is going on and still nokia r not bothering seriously and giving false promises every time..they should have stopped their shipping until they exactly find all the problems and solved it 100%..they also lied that no problems r their in second batch and see now ....the phone is good but problems r not acceptable.people accepted symbian os despite its old and boring but they betrayed and ruined symbian despite of knowing n8 has launched recently...its been 6 months and still problems have not been solved and giving wrong information about all updates...now what so updates come the symbian will be looking rubbish and old...so nokia dayss are over and now people have understand and this time nokia silly tricks will not be accepted by people so nokia do something which will bring people trust back....
Who cares if the reasearch if official from Nokia or not? The fact still there. You know what's more pathtic? You trolls don't
even have arguments to defend your "ideas", all you guys say is "Nokia sucks", "Symbian is ugly", "Nokia is dead", you know what that means?
You guys hate Nokia so much only because it's still on the top even without good presence on North America, you trolls just can't aceppt that
fact. So let's make it clear: Nokia doesn't care only with North American stupid expectations, Nokia is the biggest brand because they do phones
for all the global market, not for a specific market alone. They still doing phones with resistive screens because it's very convenient for alot
of countries, they do reliable phones because it's conveniente for all market, they do phone with good cameras because it's convenient for alot
of people. Nokia users don't care for extremely powerfull CPUS, hundreds of effects and eye-candy shi*y, they care about functionality and reliability.
They care about support and market experience.
That makes Nokia far better than any other company.
You think I'm wrong? OK then. So what do you expect from a smartphone?
Beutiful OS with inconsistent phones with hundreds of different resolutions, technologies, OS version and hardware, with lead thousands of incompatibles
Apps for your phone? Not to mention that it's a Java emulated system that need a 1Ghz CPU to run without any lagging. (Android)
Or a beutiful and fast OS with stupid limitation like no true mult-tasking, no true video-call, no file manager, no true homescreen or widgets, no mass
storage, not bluetooth file transfer and God know what else?(iPhone)
What's so bad about Nokia phones them? The UI looks? Me and all "Nokia fanboys" rather quality than a useless good-looking OS.
