N8 is currently the best mobile device out now. Anyone who'll disagree is in denial. USB OTG is so important to me as I don't use my N8 in downloading large files, I use my old N82 for that and just transfer the files directly to my N8 via USB OTG. Sometimes I don't need to transfer files to view it, I just connect the other device to my N8 and watch the movie stored on the other device to my N8. Putting a 1GHz processor on this phone would be an overkill as N8 already struggles to stay alive with a 1200mAh cell. That's the biggest con of the device. 680MHz is just fine because most of the tasks are performed by the GPU not by ARM processor. As for the operating system, Symbian is a fully functional and efficient OS only lagging behind in terms of eyecandy user interface. Symbian can do a thousand things both Android and iOS can't do so I'll take the functionality over the fancy UI.

any n8 owner, i got a question, my n8 sometimes not very responsive when running games or apps,need to tap twice or more.does using screen protector make the touchscreen less responsive? or is it because of the software itself? or is it weakness of symbian 3?

libra123, 27 Jan 2011Please i want honest comments about this phone ??? should i buy it now or should i wait for an... moreI spent months looking at all the smartphones and I kept changing my mind over and over. My advice is go for it! I have never had a problem. Great camera, excellent call quality. However, Symbian in the eyes of 'the technophobes' might be behind some of the other's but to be honest it works well for me.
Seriously, it is a very competent smartphone which is going to get even better when the new firmware arrives!

Rajesh, 27 Jan 2011Thanks friend. But can you tell me what do you use USB OTG for? Do you feel these feature is ... moreHello Rajesh,
I have used USb on the go just once, to copy some files from a flashdrive to the phone, it´s a nice add on, but certainly not the feature I use the most.
Videos, I have tried a few with no problems at all, this is the first time I use a phone to watch movies/ concerts. But so far the highest res movie I have on the phone is 704 X 416 not much, and it plays really smooth.
I haven´t tried N900 but I heard it´s a one of a kind handset, unfortunatelly I haven´t seen one on sale where I live.
About the N8 I think it´s one of the best phones in terms of value for money, and about the dual core and 1 g ram of other phones, what matters most is that the phone gives you good user experience, and so far I can´t imagine n8 being faster although it´s just 680.
There are no perfect phones but I think N8 is one of the best buys possible!
