Looks like a good phone with heaps to offer. Only downside is the processor, anything under 800mhz these days is seen as low. Most smart phones boast 1ghz processor.

trgvictg, 28 Jan 2011it's a bit laggy when browsing web ,especially while using pinch to zoom.Also the same thing h... moreRAM is plenty, its the processor, again, as always with N8. Plus ovi maps, its not efficient. Slow and unresponsive maps on N900 was one of my main reasons to change to HTC/android, but then i have to add that ovi maps for maemo5 is not the same as for symbian, N900 has much more powerful processor than N8 but is still slower on maps. They are Slow and Slower.

Anonymous, 28 Jan 2011not responsive, very slow and laggy.when 1or2applications running, this phone is totally rubbish and what did u expect from an Arm11 processor? it was known for months before the launch that it would be slow, the specs where public and then it should not surprise you that i doesnt perform well. It has "performance" as expected, if it can be called performance. Lack of it is more accurate.
Rajesh, 27 Jan 2011Thanks friend. But can you tell me what do you use USB OTG for? Do you feel these feature is ... moreu sure rajesh n8 does not play 1280 x 544 videos? liar.. mine played 1280 x 720 how come that resolution cannot be played? i had dodwnloaded different files like flv xvid dvix mp4 avc all these are played smoothly in my n8 at 1280 x 720 and some at 1280x544!!!!
not responsive, very slow and laggy.when 1or2applications running, this phone is totally rubbish
Frank, 28 Jan 2011@Rajsh For wht purpose u need a phne actually or wht u need in a phne DUD??????????N900 fully catters to my basic and conventional needs. I am just on a hunt for something which can beat N900 in every aspects and can be my most wonderful gadget to carry along.I am looking at a great camera, large screen with high resolutions, speed, battery efficiency which enables phone to be functional for 3 full days. Great multimedia which enables you to watch HD movies on the go because I travel a lot. Highly efficent GPS connectivity, super fast internet browser, large storage space capability, Rom must be atleat 512 MB for future upgrade, tons of usefull freeware available for download and last but not the least stable OS. Is it too much to ask for on a $ 500 to $ 700 gadget. I am on hunt and I am sure Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and LG are working hard on it too. Cheers...
it's a bit laggy when browsing web ,especially while using pinch to zoom.Also the same thing happens while using gps-showing checkerboard pattern.Not a smooth phone.I think a bit of RAM will do that stuff.May be 384 mb instead of 256 as on the wildfire will be better.
Anonymous, 27 Jan 2011any n8 owner, i got a question, my n8 sometimes not very responsive when running games or apps... moretake off yr screen protektor, enjoy the Scratch resistant Gorilla glass display and you will get much better.
libra123, 27 Jan 2011Please i want honest comments about this phone ??? should i buy it now or should i wait for an... morethe n8 is not a must have thing, but its extremly one of the best choice smartphone. i you want to wait, well.. wait until event in february and youll see its still one of the best, just buy it then.
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.
