Anonymous, 30 Oct 2010hey...can nyon tel me...shuld i buy n8 or go 4 ominia hd..???????????The Nokia N8 and the Omnia HD are both good phones! But it depends on your taste! OmniaHD will only let yu down in the lack of third party apps, outdated OS and zero samsung support, but apart from that insignificant stuff, its the best multimedia device available!
The Nokia N8 will only let you down in the lack of third party apps, lack of a competitive OS, no video light and screen size! But if you can look past those shortcomings then you have a device which rivals the OmniaHD in multimedia features!
The choice is yours, and im not sure if this will help your decision, but there are custom firmwares available for your OmniaHD which make it alot better abd there will soon be some for the N8!
bodi, 31 Oct 2010I think i8910 is better than n8 in all aspects except the camera and the flash,it has larger... moreI disagree with that statement! The Omnia can't be outclassed by any device but it isnt better than them! The sound quality on the N8 is much better than the i8910 and when i say sound quality i'm talking but crisp and clear vocals balancesd bass and no distortions whatsoever! But the i8910 is a bit louder than the N8! As for the camera and the flash, thats dependant on the user, if the user is spontaneous and needs to capture many unique moments xenon wont be his choice, but for someone a bit more subtle xenon is the ideal choice! The i8910 may have a larger display but Nokia N8 perfected the flaws of the i8910 display in terms of sunlight legibility and touch response! the N8 has better HD recording algorithms and web rendering algorithms, the addition of multitocuh makes it a better gaming and user friendly device! The i8910 is the best multimedia device in the market to date, since there is no device which supports as many formats and plays them so loud and beautifully! I prefer watching HD movies on my i8910 than my laptop any day! But the facts are the facts and i have no intention of parting ways with my Omnia HD but the Nokia N8 is an upgrade of sorts!!
Soulchild, 02 Nov 2010Hey yall, whats up? Whats new? What did I miss? I no you guys have not seen me in here for a b... moreSoulchild,
I just got back as well! I see most in here are either talking bout new firmware for the OmniaHD or which phone will be a good upgrade! Galaxy S 2 sounds interesting though, but i decided that i'll be upgrading to the Nokia N8. My decision is both of personal taste and local marketplace. Our Omnia is second to no device but i'm having a hard time getting it sold, where as when i owned the Nokia n80 n n95 8GB i sold them in no time! So i am going with the Nokia N8 since i know when the next "must have" device hits the market i can easily get rid of it and upgrade. The Galaxy S, Iphone 4, HTC Desire HD will stay in my hand a rot before someone from Saint Lucia buys it from me LOL!! Not saying they are bad phones but they are not popular! Plus i wanna be one of the first ppl to experience the new symbian when the updates start rolling out :)
Hey yall, whats up? Whats new? What did I miss? I no you guys have not seen me in here for a bit, but I still have my phone and am using HX V8.
Am waiting to see if this thing about the new GalaxyS 2 will come to light. If it is for real than it will be worth the money for the upgrade. I think it does not make sence for me to spend hundreds of dollars for a phone that does just a little bit more than my phone. So am waiting for the GalaxyS 2 or what next year has to offer.
sajad khan, 26 Oct 2010hmmm, bro let me tell u n8 defeats each n every hands in camera section, but its seems like a ... moreSure there are lots of "Hardware" elements that make the N8 second best, but feature wise its better than alot of devices! But like u said, lets waiting we each get our new devices?
I am getting SGS in a few days. But Ill be keeping my Omnia HD though...
I think i8910 is better than n8 in all aspects except the camera and the flash,it has larger display better sound quality,longer battary life and awesome design.
the worst about i8910 is the fingerprints on its glass surface.go for it but change the original samsung frame were with hyperx or fainel and use the spb shell application that will make you phone far better
bodi, 28 Oct 2010I love this phone the video quality is premium but the pics is not the best at all.hi, guys this fone has greater capabilities than 70% of new phones... video is great, 30fps will be awailable in next firmware HX, and photo quality is better than factory firmwares google and see it yourself... n8 is expencive peace of sh.t

Symbios, 24 Oct 2010But on the other hand an Android device may be worth a try ;)hmmm, bro let me tell u n8 defeats each n every hands in camera section, but its seems like a 1 year old phone specifications wise. it has a weak speaker.screen size is small. no led flash,weak processor and ram. ok stop it here. i m waiting for desire hd. u go for n8. then we will discuss about both the handsets. hahaha
sajad khan, 24 Oct 2010and 1 more thing, lack of led flash means no vedios at night and no torch at all. and had u se... moreSajad,
The Nokia N8 is an upgrade from the OmniaHD! Name one device which has all the multimedia strength of the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD! The Nokia N8! If you bought the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD for what it can do, then buying any device apart from the Nokia N8 will served to be less than adequate! The Nokia N8 has picked up where the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD left off and improved where it failed! I admit its not the best device available, but it is the best multimedia device available! The iPhone, Samsung Epic 4G, HTC Desire HD and any other iOS or Android device will hands down beat the N8 at web-browsing, texting, user-friendliness, speed and power but most of these devices lack basic smartphone functionality such as bluetooth file transfer, poor loudspeaker output, browser flash support, no file manager, no memory card slot, no desktop client like Ovi Suite, Poor reception, OTA upgrades and updates, UDP [user data preservation], no multitasking and restricted media formats! I can't sacrifice any of these basic functions just to have a smooth UI experience! Its an unfair sacrifice too me....i'll stick with symbian and MeeGo! So i'm getting the Nokia N8!
