One thing I'd like to see in the review if possible is; Have they sorted the annoying memory issues in Symbian^3? The single biggest reason I got rid of my N97 was that, despite having 32Gb on board, that was partitioned in the E drive & the C drive only had about 50Mb available & no matter that I installed all my apps to either the microsd card or the E drive - it still took up valuable memory in the C drive leading to having to regularly clean it up with a 3rd party app. You could (if you were silly enough) install apps straight to the C drive taking up the memory even quicker. A firmware update did address this a little bit by better managing this tiny portion of memory but never really fixed it. I'd like to see something similar to the iphone where all your memory is in one big place rather than split up (& before you say anything - I'm not confusing this 50Mb Storage with RAM. It was actually storage that allowed apps, messages & email to be stored to it - in fact the browser cache used to eat it up in no time at all).
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2010hahaha i never thought iphone fans would react this way...like crazy shits.haha. iphone fans ... morei agree with you buddy, they are also interested in the n8 thats why they are all here =p
I dont think that gsmarena is being biased, as the title said its just a PREVIEW. That's why its taking them quite a few days already before posting their conclusion coz I think they are doin their job trying to look at every detail (the pro's and the con's)of the Nokia's new toy. If they being paid by the Nokia then they could have made their review so damn quick.
So, ok people lets just wait for their complete review. And I know you all will!
ssj, 07 Oct 2010After reading a lot of comments it seems Nokia is making digital camera these days. I mean rea... moreSo tell me wice guy what is wrong with the review? Look at those pictures and stop whining.
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2010Good job GSM ARENA for making super hype of Nokia N8.. bravoN8 created its hype itself, the N8 page had 95% daily interest before gsmarenas preview and blind test, now its 96%
All nokia phone has offline working navigating maps. That worth a lot of money since it is a global map! Let us not for get that.
ssj, 07 Oct 2010After reading a lot of comments it seems Nokia is making digital camera these days. I mean rea... moreI personally don't think this site is a Nokia fan base site. Otherwise, all Nokia phones would have conquered the voting statistic at the home page. I can see a lot of SE & Samsung fans are here also.
After reading a lot of comments it seems Nokia is making digital camera these days. I mean really i think maybe N8's camera is good but not unbeatable. In some cases Pixon performs well than this N8.
And it seems GSMArena is being a Nokia fan site.
I can still remember what they did with the iPad release.
(I've just posted my personal opinion and if my opinion hurts anyone or any Nokia lover than i really have nothing to do)
Also good to note that meego will run on high end nokia smartphones in 2014, not symbian ;)
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2010errr..... actually ur wrong, most people would not. http://www.gsmarena.com/smartphone_market... moreso? just a prediction, not a concrete one. as of now, symbian and nokia still rules.
Wheez, 07 Oct 2010Weird how still most people in the world rather buy Nokia before any of those brands
errr..... actually ur wrong, most people would not.
hahaha i never thought iphone fans would react this way...like crazy shits.haha. iphone fans this review is for nokia n8. it only shows u are also interested with the product. admit it. go throw your iphones and buy n8, its fine we wont laugh at u. u dont have to be that bitter to n8. nokia is top8 brand GLOBALLY and it will surely regain top5 by 2011... iphone sucks...nokia has hundreds of phones, iphone has 4 to date. go to hell
This is a correction to Abhi's comment:
Here r some points which seriously prove that gsmarena is being biased- ( i am here to correct ur stupid comment Abhi, u seriously dont know anything about business and dont know American websites and their media very well. )
1.in their camera test the quality of samsung pixon came out almost equal to sony camera. And on the other hand pixon's cam quality is equal to satio. It directly means that se satio's camera is as good as sony's dedicated camera which is just ridiculous. On one side there is a cam whose whole compartment is just dedicated to camera and on other hand there is a cam phone which have only a little part of it dedicated to camera.
****( i used both the saito and pixon, the pixon is better than the saito, but both are shit phones, sorry for saying that but its the truth)
2. The sites which r way more respectable than gsmarena like engadget and techradar are saying with one voice that n8's camera is just better than apple's iphone 4. Those sites in their whole history have never been accused of biased reviews but gsmarena has been accused a lot of times. Then why should we believe gsmarena.
**** ( Ask urself, wat are those websites ? They are American !!! u dnt know American media and sneaky ways of making other companies lose, u just dnt know anything, get educated and think twice before commenting because this website is much more respectable than those trash full of lies websites.)
3. There is a huge possibility that gsmarena would have tempered with the images before posting them for comparison. How do we make sure that they didn't temper.
****(Gsmarena doesn't do those type of childish stuff like those American websites, and with the high ISO part of yesterday's test, that shows the truth and cant be tampered with u fool, read twice before commenting)
4. Just due to the fact that new os takes 1 click instead of 2 clicks of old os doesn't make it a good os like android and ios.
****(u think thats why its better ??! do u even have a Nokia N8 to comment ? did u try the device and the wonderful stuff it has ??! ur seriously commenting out of ur a**)
5. Gsmarena said nokia e7 is a bit heavy at 176 gms but yesterday when motorola outed their 3 new androids in which one weighted 145 gm gsmarena quoted it as being very heavy.
****( ya GSmarena considers a phone by its features, and the N8 has the biggest camera sensor, and xenon flash, and dont forget the hdmi and USB on the go feature and the other amazing hardware and software features etc .. So plz stop saying things out of those liars and American cheaters, and own an N8 before commenting)
[deleted post]Agreed, to be honest I have nokia product since 3210 till E series. And I really disappointed with quality and OS. They use us customer as experiment. They produced new product with A features, then after a month they introduce new product with A+1 features. For example divx/xvid, now they give N8 that features. Will see what kind additional features they will add in a month forward. Nokia totally full of s**t. I. Really disappointed and will never use nokia phone.
All this insecurity from other brands fanboys gives me a warm feeling inside
Nokia and the N8 keep steamrolling with 96% daily interest
[deleted post]See, this is probably why iphone users are so satisfied. They are so stupid and have split personalities that they try to reply to themselves to prove themselves right, cos they know nobody else will agree with them
You just failed, we see its the dame IP
