yes the purple screen problem is real. on full brightness it does not show the purple color but it shows poor very poor gradients. there is a gradient test image which is white to black from left to right with smooth gradient. N8 shows this smooth gradient as 10-12 solid blocks. i.e. the ugly difference between the gradient levels are very clearly visible.

I am just helping before he gets more silly. Do you have 2 accounts? cos I feel like rcda and anonymous are the same person with different name only. Just try a better way next time ok?

I was googling mobile anti-virus for N8 and came across a site full of complaints about trying to delete trial version of Kaspersky Mobile. Apparently you have to enter a code which is never given to you when you install it. Go onto the Kaspersky site and query it there. Apparently you have to send in your imei number and some other details. Sorry I don't have the site.
I decided not to install for the above complaints.
Just got my N8 a few days ago. Loving it, responsive, great screen, good sound, great camera etc.
Not too worried about the future of Symbian as it's doing all I want of it at the moment. This is my first smartphone, so I sure I will find thing which I will need assistance with along the way.
I have tried a folder hider application from Ovi, but it doesn't work too well. Any suggestions to hide photos from prying eyes?

ai, 06 Mar 2011hi!1 we r interested in buying..pls suggest... firstname.lastname@example.org grate phone i m in love with it. i have used i phone ,android but for me symbian 3 is gretest os. only becoz symbian is not doing that much add. that dosent mean its not good. its baby now and its groing like anything
I am disapointed Nokia N8. I bought a new one Nokia N8 (made in Finland ) and enjoyed only 3 days this mobile. After charging orginal charger atached to whole set, my Nokia didn't start again. Charger is ok, but my Nokia is not charged any more. I see only on the begining flashing LED located close to USB socket and that's all.
I am very disapointed Nokia and regret that I didn't buy another brand.
They are not killing symbian next year. They'll support it. They are just using Windows phone in high end phones, Symbian in mid and high end phones and S40 in mid and low end phones. And its totally right that killing Symbian will not kill our Symbian based phones.
really nokia N8 is an awesome mobile with great feature and that's why i like nokia N8 so much
Can someone please tell me where i can download privacy lock for my N8..My kids keep deleting my files & pics.Went onto My-lookout mobi,but the download say's the phone does not suport the file format.something can or cam...thank you
hi just want to ask if anybody had tried uninstalling an application before. Like in my case i tried to uninstall kaspersky mobile security but it required a password or something, and i don't know what it is. thanks.

You want to cover up the purple screen problem? Let rcda post his experience about his screen defect. It serves as a warning so that potential buyers will be aware of the purple defect. I would rather have the public aware of the purple screen defect of some N8s so that they will pick a unit without the purple screen.
rdca, 05 Mar 2011 Im not bashing N8, Im react for what ive seen on my n8 display its reddish purple,... moreI'd say poor you because this isn't a Nokia official page this is or Nokia fans. So,any complaints won't be read by Nokia officials,don't you know where to write? there's a Nokia official blog to write their blogs,not only for RCDA but or other noobs too,this isn't a place for your complaints cos it won't be read nor reported. you all should go write there(nokia support blog). Really I am soooo fed up off seeing N8 noobs around on this fan page.
Guys PR 2 is coming month end...so be rdy for 50 new improvements....
