The phone looks cheap and nasty. At least you wouldn't have to worry about anyone stealing it from you.
I let go my samsung wave for the Nokia N8.
even though the wave was a brilliant phone, games like NFS Shift and Kroll would keep crashing. even while playig Asphalt, the phone would heat up.
if email exchange was used, the otherwise awesome battery would drain in a day.
The Nokia N8 seems to be the right balance.
the CORRECT amount of ram, REALLY POWERFUL Graphics, and a decent processor make it nice to use.
(Pretty sure the processor will be OVERCLOCKED soon by some hackers :))
I would like to try 750 - 800 GHz)
this would hopefully not strain the battery too much.
I would also like to thank nokia for making the OS better to work with rather than focussing on Eye candy.
i am sure the future upgrades will be great. till then, the never ending linup of themes and animation softwares are fine.
i find it funny how the trolls come up here and keep bashing this phone, even if they dont own it. there are enough people on this planet for all the smartphones to co-Exist....
The best thing about the Nokia N8 is that even after a year when there as a phone challenging the face of the mobile world with crazy specs, the Nokia N8 can double as a Perfect Digi cam / Video recorder / MP3 Player.
This Phone just cant go Wrong !!!!!!
HELLBOY, 24 Oct 2010To nokia fans which one shall i take N8 or E7 m confusedIf you go for the E7, you are compromising on the Stunning camera for a bigger 4" screen. the N8 is more worth as the E7, even with 8Mp, is still stuck with fixed focus.
if screen is a priority, go for galaxy S instead.
But as an all round phone, the Nokia N8 is worth every penny you spend on it.

Yeah, you are totally right. We could rather spend twice as much on a phone that takes a few cents more to manufacture (yip, I am referring to the iPhone). That would make us so much more intelligent.
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2010Why would anyone buy such a cheap phone? It's software looks ancient and from reports is dead ... moreBecause even if it not "great' looking crap, it actually does all stuff put together for which you'll need 2-3 "good" smartphones (good according to isheep and fanboys) and lot of paid apps for them.. in short, i'm looking for a smart phone, not brainlessly handsome phone
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2010Why would anyone buy such a cheap phone? It's software looks ancient and from reports is dead ... moreYou mistaken their word, nokia told like N8 is last symbian N-series phone not the last phone. If you see outside world then you easily know there are some more symbian phone arrives like E7, etc..
And nokia also told they support N8 with future upgrades and this indirectly means that Symbian^4 can be available for all Symbian^3 phones.
Why would anyone buy such a cheap phone? It's software looks ancient and from reports is dead as its not user in the next nokia phone.
Some people will buy any old rubbish and try and kid themselves its great by trying to elevate its camera function.
Anyone knows a good youtube app for N8 or place from where i can download a native app? the stock one provided is just a weblink that opens in the default browser and there is no native app on the Ovi store
I never ever understand why people are fighting on net for phones and mainly for OS. Everybody knows that each and every phone are different and also work differently. You should choose which feature you are going to use in a phone and find your best mate.
In my opinion Nokia N8 is best and same way Iphone(s) and other high end androids too are best. Each phone have their weakness and strong points.
Well, on wich photo N8 is superior to Samsung??
I didn't see any...in all photos the Samsung is superior to Nokia N8, well on low light no, but all the other Samsung is way superior, is in front of everyone, the Samsung has more detail, and i'm a Nokia customer for about 10 years....
