Anonymous, 09 Mar 2011so where do we get the software? have you tried it already in your phone?Dear friends,
For those who wants 'lightctrl.SIS' just search for it in mobile9 web site... (Under N8 software category)
Even googling for it will give you so many results because it's a very popular app...
Remember, set the brightness to 80 and see whether so called 'purple' issue remain or not...
Yes... I'm using this software for several weeks and I don't see any purple, reddish color problem what so ever...
In fact, it's a defect in software controls according to the ambient light sensor.. Once you disable it, the screen will be brighter and you'll no longer see any purple defect...!
Bye bye for the purple maniacs...!
Note that, this app will cause the battery to drain little faster because it increases the brightness level of the phone.. But I can say that difference will not be a big deal compared to the purple problem...
Just try and look for yourself...
since using the phone while charging reduces batery life what if u unpluged the phone while charging,use it then plug it back in power,does that stil damage batery life? My phon drains up prety fast esp when surfing web.n its only 4wks new?
sun, 09 Mar 2011ya,, hi nuwan,, iused 5230 ,,,read u r comment on 5233 right i have used before 5230 e63 and e... moreDear Sun,
Yeah... Just like other friend has also told, Download 'Tune wiki' player from OVI store and then install it...
It has the Manual Equalizer preset thing and most strangely when you edit equalizer their those presets will be saved in your default Nokia Music player too...!
I was so glad to have this player because before that I was so frustrated without equalizer manual controls... I'm a damn music lover and I want it to be perfect as for my taste...
since using the phone while charging damages the battery life,what if you disconect it from the charger first, use it and plug it back in? Does that stil have an efect on batery life..since av noticed my batery drains prety fast esp while surfing.its only 4wks new!
I use his phone and i knw how good it is. Ignore what people say as long u knw what is good for you. mine have no battery problem,great graphics,great speaker,superb sound in headphone,and reliable. I dropped it on concrete,no restarting problems,no lag,its just perfect. those are not agree,u just wrong. TQ
N8 is now the second most viewed phone on gsmarena yay!! We must thank ifans and fandroids who contributed in part by coming here to bash the N8 and who received a thrashing instead....

Dont mean to repost. But here is to all you iPhone lovers saying what a fantastic camera you have and it can beat the N8. Well here's a link to show what kind of quality you can get.
It is the best hw ever produced:
12 Mpixel Camera
HD Video Recording (videos looks great even in 50" LCD)
USB Input for external storage
FM transmiter (listen mp3 when using rented cars).
GPS with Ovi Maps - works fine
TV with Nokia external digital TV turner (option)
There is not another phone so complete.
SW is not so updated and seamless as Android but has a lot of stuff that full all my needs.
Hi All, seems you are all more up to date with the phones. I have a choice between Nokia N8, SE X10, HTC Desire HD - can anyone please make a recommendation. Thanks
Nuwan, 08 Mar 2011Dear Sunny, I totally agree with you on this brother... There is no such 'Purple/reddish sc... moreThe screen has always been the most delicate and problematic Nokia hardware. LCD dead pixels then, AMOLED gradient problem now. There are a lot of N8's affected with AMOLED gradient problem. Dark grey gradients are displayed as purple/reddish. But there are also some units with perfect screens with no gradient problem whatsoever. You're lucky if you've got one of those which doesn't have this problem. Nokia have miscalculated it. They shouldn't have used AMOLED on their phones but IPS LCD instead just like the iPhone. My main issue with Nokia over the past years has always been the screen problem. I'm so fed up now. That's why I'm now selling my N8 and getting an iPhone 4.
sanjay, 09 Mar 2011My PC can't run the HD recording of N8 I have OVI player and other latest vesions of player. ... moremay be you need codec for video player,try new windows media player or if you want to play all the formats try km player(google it to get)
zeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, 09 Mar 2011how come when i charge it while surfing the net, the back of the phone is very hot!!!!It's not adviseable to use your phone, more so, surf the net while charging it. Charging prolongs while you're using your phone that can lead to overcharging and overheating which can damage the battery.
