Nokia N8 gets better stills, 30 fps video with continuous autofocus

13 October, 2010
If you already checked the review, you would know that the Nokia N8 is the best cameraphone available by a wide margin. But it turns out that there's even more potential locked inside that smartphone...

Afterall, its your money. Go waste it on your idol N8. All I would say is, don't do it, you will regret (just as I do). Rest your choice.

Symbian is nothing but cr*p.
And if you are talking about your Windows and Linux stuff, then pay heed to what you just said. You use Linux because its lighter and you are comparing it to Windows which is heavier. More people in the world use Windows (just like Symbian) whereas a few people comparatively use Linux (like Android). Now see what you just said. You just admitted yourself that Symbian ain't good. And thats true!

Secondly, I have already used X10, as I own one. I am developer also (I forgot to tell you that) and so I exactly know what's here and there. Developing apps for Android is simpler and so is for the iOS because their platform are much better than that of Symbian. And you are talking about battery I noticed one thing, go check out the Samsung S8500 Wave battery test and shut yourself up like Symbian. I has much more advanced hardware than the Symbian, and it still outdoes it.
Moreover you call X10 a fail? Go wash your mouth. X10 is THE only Android phone that uses intense animations all over the UI and never hangs or lags.
Should I continue?

Anonymous, 14 Oct 2010who the hel do u think ure kiding!? Lo! Symbian cant even run on... moretell me that when
you don't need to download an app to do basic stuff on your phone


600mhz is fine for symbian you guys demand super speed get a useless android phone

crap battery because of the overclocked CPU
you don't remember what happened to android before
it needed an update cause how android was sucking the battery life

and now the facts

higher res means more battery power
higher clockspeed means more battery power
GPU dependant means more battery power


my friend has the x10 and it's a fail

just to let you know i'm using WINDOW and linux

i use linux more cause it's faster and more stable uses less power and more manageble

windows is still ans always will be power hungry like
android and IOS

just like how symbian is

i suggest you try it out then tell me that symbian sucks

Even the n97 was slower than a snail. And even this sh1ty n8 is slow even with such an amazingly BORING user interface! Get a grip and stop living in ur nokia scker world!

The fact that even nokias TOP EXECUTIVES admited themselves that symbian cant compete with android and ios just goes to show how sh1ty symbian is.

Symbian @ 220 MHz is OK?
Symbian @ 434 MHz is GOOD?

Dude, where in the world are you living!! Have you ever used a Nokia smartphone? All Nokias hang and run very very very slow. Don't fool people that Symbian can run effectively on a 434 MHz processor!

And on the other hand, iOS runs good @ 434 MHz and runs flawlessly at 600 MHz processor and 3D HW Graphics accelerator.

And do you know why I am saying so? Because I keep testing newer phones. I have the Nokia N8 (got it two days back), have the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 (got it in February 2010) and the iPhone 3GS. And I personally feel that I am a jackass because i bought the Nokia N8. This phone is still not smooth besides getting a faster processor and a 3D graphics accelerator.

I am selling my N8 in a day or two (because its only a camera, and I already got a Sony DSLR camera at my home). Does anybody want my N8 (crappiest phone)????

what you (i)diots don't see is that
symbian is the lightest smartphone OS on the market

just like linux it's light
and has minimum requirements

220Mhz 128mb runs ok
434mhz 128mb runs better
600mhz 128mb runs much smoother
680mhz 256mb/GPU SMOOOTH

IOS
434mhz 128mb runs ok
600mhz 256mb/GPU runs better
1ghz 512mb/GPU runs SMOOTH

Android
434mhz 128mb/sluggish
600mhz 256mb/GPU much better
1ghz 512mb/GPU still sluggish

ANDROID too heavy for it's own good

and the battery sucks for plus all the messed up versions and specs mess it up

Hahaha. true, Nokia has no scope. signing everything!!
its true that every nokia flagship is praised like anything. after two months, those people say 37 kinds of sh*t about the same model. this has happened ever since 1993 and it is still continuing. the only thing is that the nokia fans are very confined to themselves withing the symbian world, and never once step foot in reality because they do not want to make themselves ashamed of the reality.
Goooo ooooonn nokia, keep suc*ing!!!!
