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.
Very slow speed internet...
Taking long time from vertical to horizontal direction
Android is always better than symbian...
I would prefer Iphone or samsung galaxy.....
I wonder if I am the only one experience it w/ n8
* slower respond sometimes need to double tap
* when shifting from vertical to horizontal position it took a long time before it shift.
* the browser surely sucks, cant zoom the pictures on facebook account.
if you have any suggestion on it please reply thanks =]]

kant, 14 Dec 2010Hi Guyss, I am planning to buy a new phone very soon... but i am confused with NOKIA N8 and N... moreConfused???
Just close your eyes and go for NOKIA N8("when comparing N8 with X6 only!")
"Wave S8500 vs Nokia N8"
GSMARENA View in review!:
" Now let’s take a look at the competition to put things in perspective.
The Samsung S8500 Wave wins a few points against the N8 on pricing and comes with a much better (though slightly smaller) display. The Bada OS offers better touch experience than Symbian^3. Again, it’s the camera that helps the N8 strike back and this time it even has the apps count in its favor. "
kant, 14 Dec 2010Hi Guyss, I am planning to buy a new phone very soon... but i am confused with NOKIA N8 and N... moreThe best is in your mind!
You know what counts for you
-looks, -screen, -OS, -UI, -camera, -etc
try them in your hands and you deside
N8 has better camera and newer OS
This N8 doesn't size up to the Maemo-driven N900, which is a far superior phone packed with innovative features..
Can't wait for Nokia to embrace Android..
Fortunally Nitdroid for N900 is almost ready for a full release..
Hi Guyss, I am planning to buy a new phone very soon... but i am confused with NOKIA N8 and NOKIA X6.....which is the best??????? Plssss suggest:-)
Hope der will be phone in future which as
12mp camera with xenon flash and led light
Multiple os just like in pc when u have option to go to windows or fedora (Symbian,Android)
Usb on go support for 1tb External drive
Projector,scanner,Super Amoled display with nokia clear black
Battery backup for 1week
100gb in built memory,
slim and light
I am using N8 for one month. Excellent phone and real VFM.Only few improvements can make it No.1.
1.Portrait QWERT typing.
2.Functional speed dial( presently it restarts)
4.Better responsive camera interphase.
5.Better file manager (X-plore does not work on it)
If any one can suggest solutions before NOKIA please write.
And belive me there is no perfect phone. If one has better camera ,other has better applications but 5MP camera with no flash, third brand is made for people with same DNA(apple).
Bikash Gosai, 30 Nov 2010I've installed kaspersky and my mobile just restart and restart it self.How to remove kaspersk... moreHave the same problem.
After intalling Kaspersky 9.0 and activated the program on my N8 the phone cannot be used.
When I try to start a program or a function the phone reboots immediately. So I cannot uninstall the Kaspersky antivirus program either
If you visit the OVI Store it informs you NOT COMPATIBLE with this device:
A visit to Nokia Care Point to re-flash firmware may well be my only option.
Did that today. Hope to get it back later this week.At least it is coverd by thr guarante3
im still using my old but really nice hacked nokia n82..which beats the iphone 2,3,4 by miles in terms of functionality,imaging and connectivity..and im seeing the n8 as a good succesor to my n82 ..when it will totally crash..!!NOKIA,N SERIES,SYMBIAN ARE THE BEST..
Anonymous, 25 Nov 2010Enjoy with your crap prototype dated phone and leave the technology to Apple cuz u can't handle it LOL Leave technology to Apple? iPhone is around by years and only now it's supporting things like Video-Call (that only workd via Wi-Fi and with other iPhone 4) and Multi-Tasking (that is not compatible with most Apps). Still iPhone 4 doesn't even have Widgets yet (God know if will had someday), even the "so bad" Symbian already have. And what about bluetooth support? You can't share anything with your so precious iPhone, even the most cheap feature phone can.
The only problem with Symbian is that the UI is kinda ugly.
The iPhone Homescreen is also a crap, it's only plain icons.
N8 comes with HDMI support, USB On The Go, an AMOLED display (iPhone 4 still trying to make miracle with LCD) and have all features that you would possibly need on a phone (Bluetooth, FM Radio, decent Multitasking, Mass Storage and everything else). And you are sure that we should leave technology to Apple? That's pathetic.
