Its screen aspect ratio is nearly imperfect for watching movies. Its video player doesn't support "play for last stopped point" feature which is very disappointing. This phone is a good camera phone, but i don't understand why it can't be a good phone for movies? Why build a phone that supports Avi-divx-xvid popular movie format when it doesn't even give you the most fundamental features for comfort while watching. Though it has AMOLED, which is not bad. But one of the boring thing i have come across with this phone is the funny Alpha/numeric keyboard.....I thought this was suppose to be Symbian^3, not the old fashioned Symbian s60v5 phones....i thought N97 was the last of those funny S60v5 phone. At least N97 with its old symbian it can still be considered a great phone because it has its QWERTY keyboard.

Anonymous, 29 Jan 2011Nokia will not come out with PR1.1 until next month end. They plan to release the new firmware... moredarn, another month to wait. Well, I hope they'll incorporate portrait qwerty, enhance wifi experience, and revamp its browser. Still N8 is a keeper but if the firmware fails to meet up with its expectation, i'll be dumping it
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2011Bye bye nokia forever.go to hell with ur symbian,680ghz processor,low screen resolution,Cheap ... moreyou're in a wrong segment buddy. None of the specs that you've mentioned are found on N8. You might be right, but android entry level phones have lesser specs compared to the premium ones. That what they call entry-level phones, that's how you penetrate a market, that's how you make a bug profit and make money, and that's how we end up spending and upgrading cuz we want more!
Nokia will not come out with PR1.1 until next month end. They plan to release the new firmware only by feb end.... Too sad. Nokia does not keep its promises...
Bye bye nokia forever.go to hell with ur symbian,680ghz processor,low screen resolution,Cheap plastic body material,wrost cameras,always software problem,least battery backup,no android no window still launching garbage s40 os
after waiting almost 2months for the rumored firmware update, it's a shame that nokia didn't live up with it's promise of a new interface and portrait qwerty. I saw a nokia n8 @ youtube with the latest PR 1.1 and it's the same banana. Well, 4 months to go and I'll be dumping this N8 for my new phone upgrade. I hope e7 would be available by then...

Dark grey is bland and boring. I should know because i used to like dark grey until I saw the green one in the flesh.

In the other hand, the N8 hardware is way better by much.
the n8 should of had a 512 ram the is nothing wrong with symbain there just need to put more work into symbain and make it more stable and more eye candy with more
better moving themes and more usefull apps over all i like symbain it gets the job done
i've been using the phone for a week and this one really rocks. the best phone i ever had. thanks nokia.
I’m really disappointed with Nokia, how come the “new release” is to out yet, this joined to the bad news about the Nokia downwards slide, makes me think about new smartphone alternatives. Nokia doesn’t want to recognized about their mistake when decide to put Symbian OS in the N8
Still love my phone.
