I bought this phone and it is great. great everything....browser is fine if you use opera. ....but it keeps restarting (but turns back on within a few seconds), i am sending for a replacement hope that the replacement wont because it probably is the best phone for the price. i enjoy having good os like android webos but i need a phone to do the basics and not turn off half way through the day (htc,palm etc................)
there is a problem with the display....purplish tint in display grey color
I have been using this device for 8 weeks now. It is perfect. I am wondering what the people are complaining about.
For only 450 US Dollars, you get a great camera and flawless system, with hundreds of useful free applications.
I bought a N8 last month and I don't have any problem with it. Why there are lots of complaints and my N8 doesn't have any problem...

My first one lasted 4 days before I had to take it back for a replacement. Then the replacement one lasted 2 months and it had to go back. with the next one after that going back within 5 days. All these phones were replaced not fixed, so a different phone each time. I am now currently waiting on the phone company to now replace yet my other n8 with a completely different brand. I have had enough. its in the shop more than I have had it for. I have always been a loyal nokia customer never using another brand, but the N8 has definatly changed that. I do wish it had no issues because I do really like the features.
Finally I got my n8 on 8th march.its really rocking.thank god that I got a problem free set.i red many reviews regarding the display problems.camera is not that much impressive when compared with my sony cyber shot tx1.

Pre-historic, 12 Mar 2011There you go people. If this is a good phone why are there so many complaints and angry users?... moreOh yea? do u think that no one has got problem free mobile??? well i dont think so... in fact i have not got any major problem.... I have nokia 5310, nokia 6681 (But lost recently)..My sis has Nokia 6233, Samsung galaxy 3, my dad has Nokia 5800, nokia 1202 my mom has Nokia 1209.. all my family members have nokia phones.... and among all nokia phones no one faced any major problem.... my sis still likes 6233... there is no major problem... though there are minor problems such as lagging, hanging etc but i did not come across any major problems... and there are no mobile in the world which are problem free...Even the costliest iphone has got much problems... Even i do admit that n8 has got some problems but surely nokia will fix it and remember there are not so many people in the world who have defective n8... if all had got defective n8, n8 wouldn't have stayed #1 in daily interest for almost 1 year!!!! my dad is going to buy n8 in couple of month... and i hope it comes with problem free and with PR 3.0 update.... I am waiting for n8.....

I bought this phone for the first time with dark grey color. IT'S DAMAGED. I returned it and thought i was unlucky. Then I bought the second one with silver color. IT'S ALSO DAMAGED!!! Now it because I am unlucky again or the problem is all this NOKIA N8?????
[deleted post]You are just trying to cover up this whole purple defect fiasco and can't take to see your favorite brand getting exposed for its sub-par quality control. Nokia itself created the mess they are in. You don't know how it feels like getting a defective device and getting a replacement with a defect still. Fanboys like you would not admit the defect and would rather deceive the unknowing public instead of warning them.
Negative comments about the N8 serves as a warning so that other buyers will pick a non-defective N8. Only fanboys in denial like you sees it as bashing.

We paid as much as those people with perfect screens while we got a defective unit. That's just wrong and you know what's worst? Having people telling others to ignore the defect and live with it. If Nokia was just doing its quality control right then they wouldn't be having this purple screen fiasco. Masking the problem with lightctrl would not solve the defect. We deserve a perfect unit and not a second rate, defective N8. You take this kind of crap but I won't.
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.
