Hi All, as per functionality, and smooth working of n8, do u advise me buying it or not?
i have read too many reviews on this phone which some are extremely good and others are extremely bad...
my usage will be mostly on making calls, sending texts, and using internet and messaging apps.
Is there a way that i can see which version of media player i have ? Because i can already see subtitles in avi format but now i dont know if its only avi that works that way. And when i go to sw update it says no updates available. I have tried playing other codecs like mkv and other ones (i forgot the name) and its not working.. Anyone have suggestions ?Thanks in advance.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2011how will i know if the n8 is second batch?Mine is from 2nd batch. Go to settings > phone > phone management > device updates. There you will see the software version which should be 011.012
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2011see dude symbian is good but the technology which is building up these days will not work with... moreAnother misconception due to the android 'i have more that means im better' concept
the reason why all of those issues happens in not because of processor but the symbian^3 hasnt fully utilized the gpu to the max just yet(considering it is still new). QT (which uses the gpu) written apps such as the music player and the photo gallery run pretty smooth however the AVKON-based UI and the WRT written apps (which uses little or zero of the gpu power at all)....well....sucks (kinda like s60v5 performance). Symbian is pretty efficient, even endgadget admits that. in terms of functionality and usability, symbian still leads ahead. android are now only getting those features but then again u might now be able to use it in your current android phone due to the unreliable software updates. BTW, nokia is really concentrating on symbian now. Proof? P.R 1.1 and 2.0. 1.1 will feature a new qt browser and other improvements while 2.0 will feature a new UI which is QT coded fully.
So there u have it
adkane, 18 Jan 2011Dude, take a chill pill. U might not want symbian os but most of us do. see dude symbian is good but the technology which is building up these days will not work with symbian.the only way to improve symbian is that nokia should put lot of heavy things on symbian which can compete with all other .giving 12 mp camera and hdmi and usb on go these all r hardware they should more concentrate in software bcoz in hardware nokia is best.in n8 they should made this with 1ghz processor whether its symbian though they should give 1ghz to compete with others and i think so all users are having wlan problem in this phone and laggy,freezing,hanging is now very common problem this of bcoz of slower processor whether everyone agrees or not but thats the fact..
reasons nokia suck big time as a company!!! there just too slow when it comes to giving the customer what they want. for e.g. we dont want symbian os but yet they﻿ still pump
that sxxt out! i just cant stand nokia !!! there so behind! and so selfish and unthoughtful to the very people that got them to the top in the first place.
