Anonymous, 23 May 2010So they prefer "small size" in specs sheet rather than better protection to the glas... moreAs said in the interview we have to balance the design as well as many other elements. That doesn't mean size specs are more important. But it says the design is an important part of the overall product. A larger raised area around the camera would have compromised the design and therefore the appeal of the product. Some may not agree but our experience says the majority want good product design.
re Sensor as stated in the interview the sensor is 1/1.83" not 1".
So they prefer "small size" in specs sheet rather than better protection to the glass.
By the way, how did they stuck in a 1 inch sensor inside ? The lens itself doesn't look too much different in size to the other phone camera.
Have they done anything to reduce the rolling shutter effect in videos?
Phones using this will not appear until next year, existing phone may not have enugh resources to run it..
Camera is hardly a selling point these days. It doesn't really matter to end consumers if the N8's camera can balance color by 10% better than a SE Satio or something. What Nokia really needs to focus on is user friendliness of the Symbian OS, things like touch sensitivity and gestures, display quality, design etc. Nokia's such focus on the camera makes me think whether the N8 will really be good enough or not. It certainly won't be better than the iPhone 4G or HTC Desire.
You should also ask about the screen......
what a miss.....
SE 2010, 20 May 2010So your happy with this new N8 and you think it will be the best camera phone ever hmmmmmm, We... moreYeah, but will we be able to get that anywhere else other than Japan, or are we locked to a phone that can't be SIM unlocked and can't surf the net due to it's APN/MMS settings being locked, even if you ever manage to get one.
The N8's camera:
- xenon flash
- AHFDs autofocus
- 12 megapixel (not that I will shoot at full 12mp)
- Video and picture editing suite
- HD video
and we get S^3 so I can get the apps I want, not just signed java apps which means no Google maps.
Get me a fully useable Sharp and I will eat back my words.
this phone is a must over iphone 4g dnt care about tha cost
[deleted post]You sir, asked the biggest question for the day...will this phone be updated to Symbian 4??? Only Nokia's management can answer that.
Herocoder, 21 May 2010Hi .. see .. I dont think realistically the cost is gonna shoot up from 370 Euros to the 1... moreI agree, I spent £500 on my SE P990i when I first got it, by the time the N8 comes out and I buy it (unless something shockingly better comes out, and I mean SHOCKINGLY BETTER), I would of had my P990i for just over 5years and I have been very satisfied and its cost me only £100 a yr. ITs minus a few features now such as the scroll and the flip, but boy, it stil does everything a phone of todays standard does just not as well due to age, ONLY lacks integrated GPS... otherwise you coudl see it as its taken 5yrs for "standard phones" to catch up to an 5yr old smartphone.
I see talking about **non-existent** mobiles is getting popular... :)
maybe..., 21 May 2010@Herocoder: IF the new N8 is hugely popular, that might encourage nokia into thinking that it ... moreHi ..
see .. I dont think realistically the cost is gonna shoot up from 370 Euros to the 1000 euros for a 1ghz processor upgrade to what it has now!! If that was the case .. the other mobiles would be selling around that price point either ..
but even if it goes as high as 550-650 euros .. I think it is reasonable for a state of the art mobile that replaces my digicam and my multimedia player fairly to a decent degree ..
I cant speak intelligently for others .. but I would be happy to spend atleast that much on a perfect phone if it satisfies me .. and I think its worth every cent!!!
Do you think that the statement that Nokia will cost around 370Euro is reliable?
[deleted post]I plan to .. and to the perfect one ofcourse .. and not the 'near perfect' stories as well .. ;-) .. the biggest joy is .. I already have found her .. only the 'perfect' mobile remains .. ;-P
@Herocoder: IF the new N8 is hugely popular, that might encourage nokia into thinking that it is actually worth spending more money on producing a 1GHz version with much more memory...
Will people pay 1000 euro for it?????????
can nokia N8 upgrade to S^4?
Gsm arena keep criticizing nokia, yet go crazy when a flagship is announced. They seem going crazy about the n8, yet afterwards they just hate on nokia.
I've heard that Nokia has a strategy of producing 'No Perfect' mobiles only so as to sell other models of their mobiles as well ..
But I really feel that they ought to change it now .. cause seen already .. I can point out in the specs where N8 is not perfect .. for ex . No 'SuperAmoled' , or '1ghz' processor .. course thats Samsung property still my point is its not already exactly state of the art .. and the gap is only going to increase in the future ..
As technology only keeps increasing, the perfect phone today would already be 1 or two steps behind the 'could be' phone already .. there is no point in further making it purposely go 3 or 4 steps behind which only leaves a bad after taste ..
my biggest complaints would ofcourse be the non-changeable battery and the camera lens cover.. and I really would not agree with the 'excuses' given on the interview for them as .. if that was the case why this no camera lens cover had to happen for the first time only in N8???? the image quality doesnt go any less in other imaging devices now do they?? and they sure could make up a good design with a battery compartment as well .. why now?? its just the strategy of Nokia I mentioned.
If only Nokia changed their strategy to 'producing perfect models' but for each market segment and price level .. they would only be world beaters and their perfect phones are not going to remain perfect for long so they go on and improve on their next model .. and not see their markets growing lower .. I can only see that as the weakness thats dragging Nokia down ..
Its the humblest of suggestions from a Fan and a customer .. and I really love the N8 .. would most probably buy it .. but still am far from being staisfied .. and it doesnt only mean that am gonna keep looking for other models from Nokia but also other models from other manufacturers .. am not really staying .. and for a company thats a serious thing to think about is all I can say.
sam, 21 May 2010just say nokia can't able to give 1ghz cpu.
I still belive market depend on demand.
if we wa... moreWhat exactly do you want to do with that 1gHz processor? Coz it aint gonna be calling & texting, taking wonderful pics & videos, playing great 3D games... You want it just to be able to say - look guys, I've got a 1gHz CPU in my (useless) phone...
Well I want the N8, and do you know what I'll be able to say ? I'll say, look guys, I've got this super sexy Nokia which takes 12mpx photos, records HD videos and with this Skyfire / Opera browser, I do all my browsing straight from the device... Oh, and it has these really 3D cool games...
symbians uses less hardware rescources thats why
