Aaron, 21 Feb 2011HD games are handled by N8's BCM2727 GPU not by the ARM11 680MHz CPU. And for the record, N8's... moreThanks for explaining this, i really love my n8, hope the updates release faster. i cant wait, i want to show to all my friends how wonderful my n8 is.
tushaar, 21 Feb 2011i m confuse between n8 n galaxy tab... which one i should buy..!!! plzz give me suggestion..It's hard to compare when one is considered a tablet and the other is a phone. Totally different worlds.
by seeing daily interest i can say that still there are many potential buyers and good numbers of nokia die hard fans. Most of them come here to see whether problems are solved... Or to see new promised updates are released or not or to see released updates are stable and problem free... Nokia please do something as early as possible to retain your fans... Most of the users are unhappy and spending most of their time in nokia care and in updating software and resetting and restarting...if this attitude towards quality goes on this year also then nokia should change their name to something else and come to market to start rebuilding their brand with microsoft
now what is nokia n12 another rumour like n9 or it will be cancelled by the time as nokia done this year by cancelling n9

Even has USB OTG, HDMI out, 3D camera and the rest.
Nokia's answer to this, the N12 is well over a year away.
Despite all those apparent drawbacks many like myself who are not brand loyalists still love the N8. Whatever the reason Nokia did something right with this device.
N8 User and Lover, 21 Feb 2011I didn't see any comments on the Galaxy S page about how it slows and freezes like the N8 does... moreThat is more because of a software glitch due to early firmware rather than because of the processor. That will be fixed when upcoming firmware updates are released. I've never had problems playing HD games. Mine plays perfectly well. My main gripe is the memory leak. Apps and widgets eat up too much RAM. But still it's attributed to the early firmware state which can still possibly be fixed by firmware updates.
N8 User and Lover, 21 Feb 2011I didn't see any comments on the Galaxy S page about how it slows and freezes like the N8 does... moreDoes anyone else have browsing issues with Opera or the pre-installed browser?
Mine crashes when you enter information like searches and login pages.
Sometimes hangs when typing in a search for destinations on Ovi Maps.

Didn't the N97 and N97 Mini have issues too.
Since I've had the N8, all games have slowed, jerked and crashed completely, especially when you have more than 1 app open. When that app is your video player or camera it's garanteed.

And for the record, N8's GPU is more powerful than that of Galaxy S and the like. ARM11 680MHz CPU is for the applications, opening, switching them. Most Android phones with 1GHz CPU are not faster than N8. Symbian@680MHz is equal to Android@1GHz in real world performance. Sometimes, numbers is not everything.
After Samsung Galaxy S, Got this as an Upgrade. Android is Very Slow, Full of visual candy with Lot of swypes to access menus.
Symbian 3 IS quick to access function. Best Battery, Fantastic Screen, Stunning Camera, Ability to read my 500 GB Hard drive to watch Movies where ever i roam.
N8 - Another KING from the Finns,
May be Samsung should return back to Symbian... Samsung boasts large processor, That consumes LOT of Power for Visual Styling and When it comes to the Balance of a phone, N8 Excels in every shot.
How big are Nokia?
How much money do they have behind them?
How long have they been a major player?
Why so far behind?
It's like they've forgotten what they do........
nokia showed their stupidity in n8 despite of knowing other companies r now using 1ghz processor they still used 680 mhz which is not good enough as day by day hd games r coming so it need good processor to handle it.otherwise lagginess and hanging problems will occur..
secondly no change in os old system and features giving 3 homescreens doesn't mean it has new os rest is same as old and no new attractive applications and games ..they should have changed full symbian theme,format,design,functions and many more if they want to keep symbian and now symbian will be ruined by 2012 and they have adopted wp7 which everyone knows no one will like wp7 its in the category of symbian as well so another big mistake...n8 from starting there were problems and still some minor problems r still faced by users where nokia is going these days i think so nokia has completely gone mad and now this year no nokia phone will be releasing this year so almost nokia has lost their customers completely ..so best of luck try to do somethong by which u can compete with others...
tina, 21 Feb 2011can i use sky call on nokia x6yes u can get skype on nokia x6 but you need to bye it on the ovi store
[deleted post]They should stop making phones altogether at this rate. I work in sales and my issue has made selling N8's much harder. I'll just offer them Desire HD's iPhone 4's, 3GS', Blackberry's and anything other than a Nokia. Shame being as they were the only manufacturer I used.
[deleted post]Lol. My girlfriend works in ICU.
It might be worth arranging the 'apps' folder into seperate folders for different types of apps and games. My 6300 slowed to a halt when I put 1gb of java games on it without seperating into folders. Once done it was fine.
By the time I remembered this it was too late. I couldn't even access 'organise' on the app screen to uninstall and/or rearrange.
I did download about 20 apps and 15 games from Ovi. They never said there was a limit and one would assume the amount you can fit on there depends on your total storage available. I think how you organise you apps is crucial to ensure it remains fast. It would also slow down if I put more than 12 apps on each home screen.
One of my biggest gripes is POOR MULTI TASKING and POOR WEB BROWSING. It really doesn't like 'signing in' pages and often crashes and quits, losing your page and history with it. This happens with the generic browser and Opera 10.
I really hate to admit when I have made the wrong choice but as time goes on Nokia just seem to let me down. I'd have been better off with their 1208 for £15 on PAYG!!!!!!!!!!!!
