Anandtech had done a benchmark
test comparing all the high end
phones including N8, iphone4 and
nexus S to name a few. I was disappointed about N8
performance particularly in the
RightWare Browsermark Test. Anandtech quoted stock browser at 4627 for stock browser and 5957 for Opera Mobile 10. It was very low compared to iphone and android
So we decided to do this test on our N8s. I also found that the score varies with the speed of internet connetion.
It varies between 4200 to 4800 for
When we tested on Opera 10 the
results were higher than those of
Anandtech. We managed to get a 9600 with opera mobile. Possibly anandtech used an older version
But these results were still very low
compared to nexus and iphone. Even
the iphone 3GS scored much better.
However guys at Maemo.org have found out the "reality" about this test. They created a fake iPhone's user agent on N900 browser, so browsermark will think N900 is a iPhone And the result: N900 with iPhone's User Agent : 18340 points N900 with default User Agent : 7680 points It clearly means that Apple and google
are paying Rightware for better
Currently we dont have any software
to confirm this on N8. But you can be sure about the fact that N8's browsing capabilities are not that bad

then why include a battery at all?
hi, guys. Just a quick question on the message capacity. How many messages can this phone store internally? My Sony Ericsson C901 can store more than 10,000 messages and still no dent on the used memory (well, in reality you really can't compare an older model like C901 to N8, but this is just a question regarding capacity).
Thanks in advance! ^_^

Just listen carefully an you can hear the angels on the litle clouds above you playing their little harps everytime you use an N8. Thats how good Symbian is, and thats how smart it was of Nokia to use Arm11 processor. Symbian is so light and miraculous that it doesnt consume battery at all. I read it here so it must be true, or are u calling all those N8 fanbois liars??

Phone will last those number of days if you almost don't use it which is not why you bought this phone for. Battery lasts longer on functions that don't involve data like music playback, fm transmitter. But this phone isn't for webaholics or hardcore gamers. Not only the battery gets drained easily even on EDGE connection, it also overheats faster than most other phones when using functions that involve data transmission and graphics acceleration like web browsing and gaming. 1200mAh is obviously not enough for a device with the most features because you will only get to enjoy one feature per charge.

There is only one champ in multitasking, its Nokia N900, which is the only Nokia on the high end NOT running Symbian. Its linux. And Android is also using a Linux core.
Aaron, 27 Jan 2011Have to agree with the battery thing. Phone gets dead in just 5 hours of browsing over EDGE. I... moreyou are wrong, lots of Nokia users can tell you that the slow processor and AMOLED is saving battery, it will last many days. I been reading opinions here about how genios it is of Nokia to use Symbian and ARM11 to save the battery, and now you dare come here and say it last onli 5 hours, same or worse as fones from other brands, fones with modern processors? Take your Nokia-hater lies elsewhere hah!
N8 has the best camera, Xenon flash is so good that the battery is rejoicing in heavenly peace, and angels play harps on small clouds when you use your N8.
symbian ^3 has the best multitasking ,and more sure symbian is the 1st os with multitasking since nokia 6600 when no other os was born, for instance ios 4 cant really multitask even android cant do a real multitask, gd work symbian you have the most pro os in the market but no one knows better than i do how smart your os is
Have to agree with the battery thing. Phone gets dead in just 5 hours of browsing over EDGE. It's a shame Nokia didn't put a 1500mAh cell on this multimedia powerhouse.
I remember the old days, we used touchscreen fones with a processor called Arm11. The LCD resolution was onli 360x640 but dont laugh, it was actually good at that time. Those fones had an OS also, i think it was called Symbian.
Well, thats past now, it was fun but evolution has come far since then, we will never see cellfones like that again.
Great phone to have. got mine in December 2010 and it is working perfectly. Best phone ever infact I thinkit is way ahead of it time. Thanks Nokia you the best. I do not think I will be phone shopping anytime soon.
Hi guys. I love this phone very much and iam going to have it soon.
Is it water Proof????
just kiding it seem to have everything i want in a phone.
I'm sorry if this is a noob question. But I just want to know the initial charging instructions of this phone. Should I discharge it first completely before using it? or should I charge it first?
I've got my N8 yesterday and i'm happy enjoying this device.
I've got a question.
I use WLAN both in my university and at home and things remain cool and pretty as long as i continue surfing internet over WLAN. But when i don't want to use internet services over WLAN and disconnect it, it turns back on very next minute and remains connected even if i don't want to use internet. It never disconnects :(
what do i do with it? :(
i'll be very grateful if someone try'n address this issue.
