MdN, 04 Oct 2013Thanks for „support until 2016” Nokia. Liars. :-(Might just limit myself to a feature phone (nokia 515) + tablet/hybrid combo (google nexus/microsoft surface, whoever is less evil) in the future. Getting sick of smartphones. And this US-centric tech landscape.
S SUDHAKAR, 26 Sep 2013Can you ask your friends and reply here?. Please?.Hey, sorry, they have no clue either...
Anna, 04 Oct 2013So happy to see you up and running again! Seems like you are much better now. Sure you’re not ... moreI'm just "up and running" to keep my mind away from gloomy thoughts and some hard work today (but it's done). :-) Nope, not a machine, I'm an artist after all, but for example the person causing one part of this was a bit machine-like. Wasted time thinking there might be something special and trying to get closer only to realize that she doesn't even know how to turn off Bluetooth on her phone and it's been "on" for a year. Oh well. Enough soap opera stuff. If any desperate women are reading this you can find me on OKCupid, just use "Symbian" and "black metal" as search keywords, haha.
In other news, I discovered QuickApp, just what I needed. So now, when my phone is locked, a long press on the camera button launches the camera (using QuickCam), and long press on the menu button launches CameraPro. Both with the same "beep" sound. Yay! It can launch any other app you choose (and one more via double press) but I wanted it just for this one. Took some nice sunset photos today too. There's also a new app called "Double Waves" out which enables you to unlock the phone or answer a call by waving in front of the proximity sensor twice. It can even activate the speakerphone. Good for when you're using gloves, I guess.
A bit sad about the Nokia Store news. Just... disappointed. There will still be new apps just not in the Store, and if some internet website changes something there will be no more updates, for example the Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, RSS apps... if anything changes about the way they have to access the data on the internet people won't be able to get updates and continue using the apps. I mostly just use Opera Mini, and UC Browser isn't too bad and it gets updates downloadable right from their website, but still... Don't know. I played with a Galaxy S3 yesterday, it's not bad, easy to figure out, the camera is OK (though the photo quality is not as exciting as on N8) but the price is awful. I suppose I could get used to Android some day in the future. I'm definitely not getting a Lumia now, they could discontinue the support out of the blue just like they did here. But here's to tomorrow, if all goes well I'm getting one more wrist strap for my N8. :-D
Symbian and meego apps on nokia will no longer be accepted/updated on Jan 1, 2014
MdN, 01 Oct 2013I tried both, N8 is better. It's easier to take a good photo with iPhone 4 in normal condition... moreSo happy to see you up and running again! Seems like you are much better now. Sure you’re not some kind of machine, maybe something like that N8 you own? Keep well!

Don’t forget to tell your friend that it is built like an Abrams tank, aluminium body and all. It can plow through its competitors with ease and leave them all lying by the wayside as it charges up the hill.

Anonymous, 01 Oct 2013Hey N8 users, m from India & its around an year i m using this cell, & touch wood, sti... moreYes, it is perfectly OK. I bought my N8, used, 7 months ago and no problems with it. I did a lot of researching, reading tests, comparing prices and nothing could match it, all the other phones were cheap Androids or old Androids with no support and low memory. The only phone I liked more is the 808 PureView but it's still too expensive and N8 is still holding its price as much as I paid for it. Just in case, make sure there is a repair center available (Nokia Care) if anything goes wrong, but N8 is a classic phone, he can buy it any time and use it as long as it lasts. If he doesn't need all the fancy apps (there's still a lot as you probably know) and the latest big display, N8 is a great choice.
kas, 01 Oct 2013nokia n8 vs iphone 4.which is have good camera quality?any experience?help..I tried both, N8 is better. It's easier to take a good photo with iPhone 4 in normal conditions because everything is automatic, no settings, just point and shoot, and iPhone 4 focus is more reliable (N8 sometimes misses if you're not careful). However, i4 photos are too processed, boosted contrast, saturation and colors to look more attractive. N8 photos are more real, also much better in bad light or in difficult light conditions. Also, N8 has Xenon flash whereas i4 only has LED. And, 12 megapixel vs 5 megapixel and much more details for the N8.
