Anonymous, 20 Jun 2010Lets compare USB N8 OTG Support Iphone 4 Only via itunes ... moreBy the way Google Maps on iphone needs data connection. Iphone is known for bad signal reception while Nokia gives best signal quality. Without network Google Maps is pretty useless. And if you are in Roaming, loading mapdata may charge even more than your phone.. In one video I saw that N8 gets instant Gps lock in only few seconds on latest ovi maps. I dont think Google maps is able to do this.
Memory Card support on N8 should be consider as pros because hd recording requires lots of memory. So you can easily buy a new memory card for every clip ( just like cd cassets). In Iphone you cant record any clip if you have already full your whole memory with tons of contents.

Anonymous, 20 Jun 2010Lets compare USB N8 OTG Support Iphone 4 Only via itunes ... moreLets compare

BLUETOOTH
Rep- N8
New devices with Bluetooth 3.0 will rise very soon.
Thus N8 have advantages over this.

Memory
Rep - N8.
Iphone do not support file transfer via bluetooth and do not have memory card slot, thus doing large file transfer at outdoor from phone to phone is impossible.

Maps
Rep- My driver friends prefer OVI maps while driving.
Because OVI maps have voices guidance.. "Turn Left.. go straight... turn right" and its free!!!
Not sure about Iphone, maybe u can find the similar things but you have to pay.

Display
No comment on this. Personal preferences.
AMOLED however, save more battery. Which is a great news for me.

Tv-Out
HDMI is definitely a great Add On to me.

3G network
N8 The fact is, N8 support more networks!

VideoCall
Rep- N8 WIN! Its not like everywhere u can get WIFI hot spot.
Thus Iphone Video Call is restricted by areas.
Thus, remember i saw some where that Iphone video call is also platform dependence. Which mean only Iphone 4 to Iphone 4. Not Iphone to Nokia or Samsung.
While N8 can make video call to all mobile which support video call over 3G or WIFI.

FM Radio
What do u mean your N97 could only tune in to 3 stations? My N73 can tune into every radio stations.
It can also use the internet radio with my data plan.
However, not every radio stations have internet radio.
Thus again is N8 win! This is sooooo Obvious!
FM transmitter is also a great add on.
I can play my music in N8 at home with my stereo speaker radio, in my car...etc.

Your fact are not so fair i think.

N8 VS Iphone 4, 19 Jun 2010Lets compare USB N8 OTG Support Iphone 4 Only via itunes ... moreLets compare

USB
N8 OTG Support
Iphone 4 Only via itunes
Rep- N8 wins

BLUETOOTH
Iphone v2.1 and only A2DP Support
Nokia N8 Bluetooth V3.0 with A2DP and File Transfer Support
Rep- Most devises are still on v2.1 so you will need to find something with v3.0 to get the benefit of this

Memory
N8 16GB on board + 32Gb MicroSD card support
Iphone No memory Card Support
Rep- Does not impede on the phones performance all down to preference

Maps
Nokia Lifetime Naviagtion service fre
Iphone ??
Rep- Google Maps available plus navigation is by far better even in beta

Display
Iphone Old TFT technology
N8 New AMOLED technology which saves battery
Rep- Arguable. sources that attended the launch were amazed by the it. Others even labelling it the best mobile screen they've ever seen we'll just have to wait on that one.
Flash Support
N8 Flash Lite support
Iphone 4 What, no flash support?
Rep-Most videos in flash are encoded in the newer H.264 format which can be accessed by safari
thousands of games in app store
Tv-Out
Iphone 4 Only TV Out
N8 - Dolby Digital Plus via HDMI
N8 Wins though it all depends on what equipment you have at home no TV with HDMI then irrelevant.
3G network
N8 Pentaband HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 2100 /1900
Iphone 4 Quadband - HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
Rep- Don't know where you got these but if you access iphone spec sheet you will find there's no difference here.
VideoCall
N8 - VGA videocall camera over 3G and Wifi
Iphone 4 - Yes, videocalling over WiFi only,
Rep- Can't find any info that N8 will be able to make video calls over Wifi maybe through third party apps like fring, Video calling over wifi is better anyway.
oh, the I can use my laptop, ryt?

FM Radio
N8 FM radio and FM transmitter
Iphone Oops, no radio here
Rep- FM Radio, on my N97 I could only tune in to 3 stations where over 10 are available so to me it's a waste os space.
FM Transmitter not needed, every good sound system manufacturer adds connection for Apple products, some even use it as a selling point.

And some one said, only the camera is better. Get your facts right.
My Facts are right my friend.

r 3 b 3 l, 20 Jun 2010You get memory full warnings when you earn memory full warnings.... moreSymbian OS is meant to be good at memory management that's why Nokia does not add too much RAM i.e killing of idle tasks, yet all we ever get is memory full errors especially with the current Symbian phones. Try running Four intense apps the N97 and see the damn thing choke up. Why not just give the phones more RAM to avoid all this carry on?
