I have been following other sites to check how N8 is and i am having a feeling that all those people who says N8 is bad are lying.

Because everyone else apart from GSMARENA seems to have good experience with N8.

Check Phone Arena User Reviews for N8..

I have give it one more chance today and give it full reset..

go to fone -- fone management--factory settings..

u are presented with 2 options,restore or delete data and restore..

Be careful what u choose i choose delete data and restore which brings it back to from the fresh out of box settings..

WARNING you get no enter fone lock 12345 so be careful cause once selected your option fone restarts and takes about 7 minutes to restart,but i had 8.6GB on mass memory,memory card of 32GB already removed obviously.

Instead of 32GB card i used 16gb card and so far its been fine..I really think its a lot to handle is 32GB plus its a sandisk class 2 card so not the fastest..

At this moment still debating its really slowed down and only using approved ovi stuff,now if people are going to have a go at me and say ovi store is not often compatible with the new s^3 then thats nokias fault not mine as far as i am concerned nokia states this will come with ovi..Its also nokias fault if they approve 32gb card and it really cannot handle it..

So my honest answer is be wary ,the n8 is no n97 its a lot different under the hood and quicker but as people are saying check what you install ..Gsmarena or somewhere states you cannot use over a 2gb movie or 1.5gb if you wish to fast forward.To me it still just looks like 5th edition ,which it is but tweaked.

There are some models out there with faulty memory allocation problems but by now these should have been through peoples hands and solved either by returning fone for a swap.

battery,audio,fotos,video,are good..
video hdmi playback,screen briteness,web browser not good inmy n8 ..

There is an update on way but why then did nokia hold off for so long?? They are saying they cannot account for everybodys usage and patterns,well nokia thats your fault there are thousands of peole who would test your device for free..Why not invit 2000 people to a weeks stay somewhere with different usage patterns to flush out the bugs..You ask for people to test a new device with just a weeks holiday somewhere and no pay you would be inundated with more requaests than you could handle..

Accept the above limitations and the n8 is a rock solid smartfone with top specs but at this moment me personnelly am bit let down with nokia promising so much but people use fones different ways to me..I am more multimedia then buinessy things..

only for haters!

  • Point view

I don't know why GSMarena ignore User Experience in thier evaluation. When you say the phone score xx , you have to cover all aspects such as User Experience but not only specs. I will give real example: when you say n8 scored 8.x , i think this way u misleading the the reader. Because and from my experience if iPhone 4 scores 6.x , nokia n8 should score 1.x

hey guys dont act like child some of you a telling that the n8 is superb and the others are saying that it is a peace of shit.

guess what i got my n8 2 days ago and it superb

so for those who are saying that the n8 is not good that means that they didn't used it. so stop acting like child n8 haters.

I loved the story mate...Its awesome and yes its a practical situation...Lastly i loved the point that every one loves their phone and has their comfort levels, its Not just screen and eye candy UI that makes a phone its all about how you get your work done with ease.

And what are you comparing it with? with dual LED or with a digital camera's xenon flash?
Cause I guess they don't put xenon in it when it is only slightly brighter as LED..

For example there was a nice conversation between someone from India, Canada and Poland where they complained to each other about N8 crashing problem. Too bad the guy didn't realise GSMArena showed the same IP hash to all comments.

Then there was a guy who complained how he should never have changed his N7 to N8. Of course he didn't know enough about Nokia phones to know that there never was an N7.

Then there are the copy paste trolls etc. This is not a very good site to get accurate picture. You should just go to a store and test it yourself.

I just wanted a camera ph0ne,even if its n0t a super 0S,,A simple camera ph0ne would do.

I was right when i chose satio,no pr0bs at all,and i think symbian is running fine in s.e.

i kn0w that this n8 was a big bo0m for n0kia,'all in 0ne'..until it was launched..but what im reading n0w here in c0mments,all in all,was a half failure..

more pros = more complicated
less pros= less complicated

i just want 2 say,im happy with my se satio,
even if its 1 and half yr.old with this n8.
