Ok. So, have had owned this phone for about 2.5 months. What can I say...?
By far the best phone I've ever owned, so well worth the wait. It has never crashed on me, it's as responsive as the day I opened it, and 100% reliable is by far the best part.
I love that I only need the one gadget these days to do every job, and do it awesomely!!! 12mp camera and HD video recording, easy to use music player, GPS with split second sat lock, Email on-the-go, Internet anywhere. I'm all set!!!
Some USEFUL apps I've downloaded from the Ovi store are Skype, Qik, HP iPrinter, TuneWiki (internet radio/music with lyrics), Here and Now, Accuweather. Not to mention the cool and FREE HD games. I have downloaded alot more apps, but there's only so many that are useful for everyday and not just a 5 minute gimmick (I'm looking at you iPhone).
Honestly tho, there is one big problem with this phone - Nokia itself. I live in Manhattan, New York and this phone model is unheard of here. It has all the goods to beat the competition in every aspect (well, with the exception that it isn't 4G). The marketing team at Nokia needs to be kicked up the a*se. This is one great phone and noone knows about it. My partner has a heavily advertised HTC phone which is all the rave here, but seriously after playing with it, it's not even in the same league as this phone, IMO. Windows mobile??? Pass. But, maybe if the N8 was a common phone (a la iPhoneX) I prob wouldn't want to be part of the herd anyways, but I digress. If you are reading this and have been contemplating "shoud I shouldn't I" with the N8, by all means you should. I guarantee you wont regret it for a second.
(As a side note; the headphones it came with were actually brilliant and I'm the type who appreciates great sound so was expecting to upgrade these with a Bose or Monster Beats set. No need to! Loud and responsive. Like, really LOUD!! Booming bass. Better than my home sub!! Love 'em. The noise cancelling feature is a bit dodge tho. I've nearly been run over by cars a couple of times, haha)

Also, the opera 10.1 app keeps shutting down. Is this a phone problem or an apps problem?.
Godzilla89, 23 Jan 2011I wanted to get the n8, but then the problem came with the fone not switching on. My service p... moreMy brother has the the Samsung. Good graphics etc, but does not get close on camera hardware etc. In fact, a couple of weeks back he bought a sony digital camera, as he was not impressed with zoom etc on Samsung galaxy. Software is better, but again Nokia are working on that right now and with several new firmware updates planned things are looking bright!!
I wanted to get the n8, but then the problem came with the fone not switching on. My service provider advised me to choose another handset. I ended up with the galaxy s. What a phone. Glad I made that choice.sorry nokia, lost my faith in you.
i bought this phone (n8) from week ago and i want to add my arabic language (which not included)
how can i add a new language?
I have owned the N8 over 2 months now and I have never had a problem with it! Cameras on most phones are at best average quality - this however, really does equal most compact cameras. Nokia really have taken camera phones to a different level!!!
For the money, seriously nothing beats the N8. Anyone know when the new firmware update is coming - rumour is Monday 24th January but I will believe this when I see it.
Im having E 72 at the moment and not satisfied at all coz in a day at least 2 or 3 times it hangs...here in voting results the performance shows 8.4/10...is it right or not coz for e72 also it shows the same bt performance shows different...and also want to kno abt x6..anyone lpz revert..
I'm eargely awaiting the N9. But knowing South Africa, itz probably gna cost in the region of R9500-R10000 which is too much fer me as Im a college student. The N8 looks so tempting though, bt nah, I'll wait
