About that free lifetime navigation - you just have to download the maps via Nokia Ovi Suite to get our Ovi Maps work in offline mode. Maps arent stored by default in N8s(or any other Nokia device) memory because they take a lot of space - whole world in Ovi Maps takes 8.14 GB at the moment. You don't have to download whole world on once, you can choose to download only countries that are most important to you :)

I have had both the Galaxy S and the Nokia N8 .. I gave the Galaxy S to my sister when i purchased the N8..it was a big mistake.. go for the Galaxy S .. sure it feels less solid and a bit plastic compared to the N8 ..but the Galaxy S has a beautifull screen and better features.. also dont get the n97.. Galaxy S all the way !!
How is this 12 Megapixel ? LOL .. this takes extremely poor photos for 12MP.And i thought maybe my phone is faulty,so i did a Google search and found many others with the same problem.
I took out my old sony ericsson k810 that i havnt used in 2 years and compared the photo quality..and was surprised to find that the 3.2 Megapixel sony ericsson took better photos (Not in all conditions ,but most)esspecially in low light or no light conditions... i was at a outdoor party and all the photos i took were horrible and overexposed with the N8.Another problem with the N8 is you cant fully zoom into pictures or photos..when in older or other phones you can .And another big thing is the vibration in silent mode..Are Nokia serious ? it makes a little poor vibration sound that doesnt even last 1 second..i have missed calls in silent mode .. This phone will be sold.. what a piece of junk it is !!
Hi everyone. I want to buy a new phone. Galaxy S or N8? Also considering n97 or n97 mini. I live in bangladesh so not a lot of choice available. Iphone isn't officially available here....though unofficially, yes. Is it worth the risk?
Seems like GSM Arena hard to accept that the nokia is mostly best. Why?
Please update the review, GSMArena, Nokia already launched an update that enables subtitles on all S^3 devices.

The flash light of the N8 GOT PROBLEM when u took a photo.Pls note tht the image will be out of focus but not the object because of the flash.IF u off it,the image will be clear.Do u know tht?Pls try it!Anyone who got this problem,pls share v me,thks!
2.Are u sure this nokia n8 got 3.5'screen wide??or less then?pls compare v iphone then u will know!
Tell me sth, please: is nokia still insisting with the stupid camera UI which changes back to default settings each time you turn the camera off? I hate Nokias' camera UIs just because you have to set the camera up each time you turn it on... If I turn the flash off or put it on for example night scenery mode I want the camera to stay set up like that... Why can any SE or Samsung do that and Nokia can't? I might be wrong but I think the majority of users are of the same oppinion... Nokia lost at least one faithful costumer because of it...
anyone notice when playing movies the dark shades like the blacks sometimes look pixelated? is that just my phone?
I hate when GSMArena keep comparing N8 with other phones: "The AMOLED is goot but not as impressive as Super AMOLED", "Symbian is behind Android and iOS usability standards", "640x360 is less than iPhone 4 resolution"...
Ah come on, I can't see you guys doing reviews comparing other phones cameras with the N8 camera or comparing other phones features with the N8 HDMI, USB On-the-go, FM transmiter etc!
That's so unfair.
Can anyone take a picture of an object (tidy framed A4 sheet, a business card or a barcode-needed by text and business card recognition, Pdf converts, and barcode scanner apps on Android) from under 20 cm with an N8, upload it on the internet and post the link here? Do you have such apps on your N8?
About "lifetime free navigation".
Can anyone find an address in "offline" mode in Ovi maps? I can't.
I can find an address only in online mode. It's free if you are using it in your home network, but so it's Google maps too.
Once in roaming your "free lifetime navigation" costs you money because you need to be "online" to find an address and to use A-GPS, and so it's with Google maps.
Why is Nokia promoting such a lie?
Your need to update your review since nokia has provided the update for subtitles , just received two days before and working fine.
when it comes to quality of operating system ask any developper and you will find your answer that symbian is far better than others existing and this is the reason why symbian applications are of less size and why it run smooth even on less powered chip because unlike android its more refined and optimized. Whenever there will be update can be easily updated unlike samsung depending on processor size.
n8 is not working, 11 Nov 2010I received the N8 from Vodafone and found that I can't type anything on the screen. Not sure i... morehey sorry to hear about ur phone dont worry Nokia will replace it just take it to Nokia store and call vodafone to change the IMEI of the new device
u can call vodafone as well but they will take time
personally i am not a big iPhone fan
its all gimmiks just imagine the price is exorbitant
rest your choice

Get a life,thriw your phone cos many ppl like it. LOL...what a noob!
I am using N8 4 a month now, I just got this nokia after using few SE phones for 4yrs, then again this is my first symbian phone.I just wanted to point out the cons cause there are so many articles which gives the pros for the phone..
Cons- *symbian OS sucked and still sucks a lot, But now atleast i have learned to live with my miserable os life of N8 *VVVV.bad batterylife, 1 Day max with average usability,1/2 day with moderate usability with a couple of snaps with camera and gamin for 1hr or so *OVI pc suite and OVI store is killing me everyday.
To end this, N8 is an excellent built phone, batterylife and its pc ovi pc sync, Ovi store, and Symbian OS shits right in ur face whenever u use the phone..
I have both HTC desire HD and N8 but hey! N8 bcome my first mobile rather than desire,cos of it build design,well in recording desire HD can't even beat ip4 ( I know HTC sucks at camera),and N8 camera rocks all the way to any phones by audio and visual quality. For web browsing,it's quite smooth and fast,whoever tested outside of it they know it,don't juz look at fanboys/fangals and inuts' bias opnions, juz try it and have it. I did it to all the things like dat cos they r not my life,they r juz to make my life comfortable. They depend on me,not dat I depend on them >:-D.
Actually both rock,N8 is better by a bit.
