Anonymous, 07 Oct 2010itouch lcd is not ips and it has half ram n worse camera. less battery n not alumino silicate ... moreyup just wait for itouch gen 4,not overpriced like ip4
it will have ips,have more ram and the camera on the gadget never been a big issue.
dont tell me,there are real people trying to use handheld for shoting at photo studio???
CAMERA will be a big issue when multimedia player or smartphone start a digital SLR camera war or it can zoom to 10x optical zoom.
every gadget have it own purpose like i said before there just no all-in-one gadget.
Lancez, 08 Oct 2010N8 is very impressive and ready to give it a try. i'm a long time advanced winmo user, but hav... morehi im a winmo user now, i came from 5800xm switch to winmo. im using costum firmware on 5800xm.
well if u familiar with winmo u will miss so much great tools in it when u decide to jump to other OS,specially to symbian.
nokia is good as a phone or a little smarter phone,but u can feel the different soon after u compare tools,apps,option,tweak,windows intergration regedit etc.
but if u using ur phone only for light browsing,watch movie,taking pic,playing some games and listen music than grab N8.u can find good information at dailymobile.
Very interesting camera comparison, I advice you all to take a look at it!
Nokia N8 vs Nikon digital camera vs Sony ericsson X10 :

Nicksti, I know you are trolling, but since you asked...
List of things N8 does better than others
-You already gave us the camera...
-Free offline worldwide navigation
-Best call quality
-UI that fully changes between lanscape and portrait modes
-Best/largest audio/video codec support
-FM transmitter (I love this on my N900)
-Dolby surround out
-Most customizable UI (except for Nokia N900)
-Real multitasking (on par with several others)
-Best battery life out of current top end smartphones (thanks to OS)
-Best Microsoft Exchange support (on par with WinMo)
-Lots of OS features that other manufacturers don't have, things like rSAP (remote access to SIM card) etc.
Could you please confirm once again, if smile recognition is available in Nokia N8?

to summarize every comments:
Nokia = Good @ hardware
iPhone and Android = good @ software
so you can't really compare.
iphone and droids are good at having apps,smooth ui, fast (which ppl likes) and others stuff...
Nokia has ''best'' camera, USB on the go, hdmi and other stuff
PS:Now if you could mix a iPhone N8 that'd be a MONSTER phone
N8 is very impressive and ready to give it a try. i'm a long time advanced winmo user, but have never had nokia before. can someone please give me some advise about which forum is the best for nokia, where can i get custom firmwares, tweaks and apps? thanks in advance.
n8 has Broadcom BCM2727 GPU, In this case, long battery life means up to three times less consumption… It is the best GPU for mobile on the market right now. ....
im just wondering why these iphone and android fans keep on posting theyre insecure thoughts on this nokia n8 review segment. why dont just they go on theyre own page. enough for this. they cant stop the n8 fever. they cant stop nokia from doing good phones...n8 wins.....for iphone fanatics, dont forget ur bumpers i know ur strugling with ur signal...and phone cases ur device is very prone to breaking. those SGS fans hide your cheap plastic phones, bring flaslight for your phone's camera and bring an extra battery....
It's horses for courses. I regularly use my N97 Mini as a bluetooth modem; need to transfer files of all kinds in half a dozen different ways; am a bit obsessed about my contact metadata; and I prefer Nokia's attitude to PC connectivity.
With iPhone, it's Apple's way or the highway. If that works for you, fine. But IMHO iPhone4 is only just now catching up with features I had on my N95 8GB in 2008. Nokia continues to improve with the N8, and I see no reason to jump ship now.
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2010just to inform u, n8 has same processor n gpu as n97. It is same phone with 12mp and different... moreFirst of all, n97 DID NOT EVEN HAVE a GPU. Second, the CPU of the N8 is better than n97 and N8 has a graphics card, unlike n97.
N8-ARM 11 680 MHz processor, 3D Graphics HW accelerator
N97 and N97 mini-ARM 11 434 MHz processor
(Both taken from gsmarena specs, if u dun believe me go n see for urself)
N pls, for god's sake, stop saying that the N8 is slow/laggy, it runs on the latest symbian^3, which incorporates software AND hardware acceleration for smoother UI experience. Dun assume the symbian^3 performance based on the laggy symbian s60v5, heck even my n82 n n6120 classic which runs on symbian s60v3 is faster than the s60v5.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010n8 has one of the worst review eva for this yr smrtph. I can't believe ww reviewers love ios a... morereview didnt say laggy ..it just tell that its not attractive like ios n android..ios is so boring..i used last yr 3gs n couldnt even stand for 2 weeks..its just a pile of icons..i need to scroll many pages to open the apps..no multitasking..so testricted to itunes..now i hv galaxy s..but it lags a lot with all those huge cpu and battery is bad..if u dont like symbian dont comment..everyone has their needs and liking..it just a phone..so dont repeat the same stuff..i knew u read all iphone biased engadget n gizmodo n tell its bad..people r not blind to rely on those stupid sies..just leave it n8 for symbian users..no need to drag ios n android in all nokia n8 section..its gud if we hv different OS n choices rather than same android releasing 15 devices a month..peace dude
nicksti, 08 Oct 2010You know why people are saying bad things about the N8? Because Nokia fans are bashing other p... moreYa, what you say is true. But nokia managed to combine all of those features into on device :).
i have a samsung omnia HD but i just read samsung just abandoned symbian...this device is symbian based so i wont get support from samsung anymore... thanks to nokias ovi store where i get my apps. i hate samsung they left us hanging...nokia never did that. nokia created MAEMO. they are creating meego but n900 was not abandoned, instead n900 will get meego...i hate sammy....
nicksti, 08 Oct 2010You know why people are saying bad things about the N8? Because Nokia fans are bashing other p... moreNOKIA FANS DIDNT START the argument. its but just a normal reaction for us to be amazed with N8 but here comes the android and iphone fans keep saying theyre phones are better. we dont care what if it lags? if a computer lags therefore normal to a REAL MULTI TASKING DEVICE... ANDROID ALSO LAGS. IPHONE DOESNT LAG BECAUSE ITS NOT MULTI TASKING....
NOKIA ALSO USES GORILLA GLASS AND AMOLED so whats wrong with that? iphone and android just have more apps but if those are in n8 my gosh android and apple are nothing....i just cant imagine if android is not existing, samsung moto htc and ericson are but just hardware....haha....by the way nokia first had tethering. android just had it this year....lol
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010getting froyo is decision made by google. Not by samsung. I hate all symbian device since n97samsung abandoned symbian and withdrew symbian support from symbian OS not considering they still have existing symbian phones, it means all symbian based symbian samsung phones will no longer get support from sammy(its a factvdontvdeny it)...thanks to nokia' OVI store-- its still there to backup those abandoned symbian based samsung phones/ all symbian apps would work on those devices. SO AGAIN IF A NEW BETTER OS WILL BE INTRODUCED SAMMY WILL SURELY ABANDON ANDROID...HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF RIGHT. SAMSUNG SO INCONSISTENT.....
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010getting froyo is decision made by google. Not by samsung. I hate all symbian device since n97And even if u say its Google's decision then it proves that samsung are like puppets in the hands of google they are not independent ...and they cant full fill their promises to customers ...what a shame
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010getting froyo is decision made by google. Not by samsung. I hate all symbian device since n97atleast now u admit samsung doesnt have its own decent OS... it just depends on a 3rd party OS. 5530 has been released few years ago but still getting support and system updates. they didt ditch it/ if a new OS will be introduced for sure samsung will just ditch android again just like what it did to symbian. they didnt consider theyre existing users.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010getting froyo is decision made by google. Not by samsung. I hate all symbian device since n97Maybe you are right about the decision is at Google's hand.
But the point is, Samsung promised for the upgrade and cannot deliver in time or cannot deliver at all.
I have used Samsung's smartphone before and will not again.
