  • Big boys dont cry

I was supposed to name it "Don't cry for me Argentina, the truth is I never left you, all through my wild days..." i just ran out of space, I love the hype here of dont cry "sumbody", I think he owns a samsung phone and just want to brag it all around. He just don't understand if this fon cost 1,000 usd, nobody's gettin it but it cost at less than 500 usd, with all the goodies inside. yeah the UI is not as fluid as galaxy S and Iphone but is that all the point of comparison? he is not looking for a smartphone but an eyecandyphone. Please do understand the needs of other as they are earning for themselves to buy what they think is good, your thought is just pure useless if your not open for a technical discussion.

Natalia, 10 Jun 2010Nokia N8 Broadcom BCM2727 = 32 Million Triangles/sec Sony PSP... moreThat question was already answered. I dont want to waste my time, since you are eager to know then search for it, you will definately get my answer how its possible to get 89M triangle per second on Wave and what is the real performance. Seems like you first time visit this page so you dont know anything. Many people like you comes here with same arguement and atlast they all get valid answer.

Dont cry Ali, 10 Jun 2010im not a gamer, i'm a technician.. Also, we are talking here abo... moreim also a computer technician.and if u a gud technician u will also know that u cant just compare proc Mhz to determine it speed.
u will also aware that a proc speed also depend on it architecture and instruction pipelining and etc.
so to know how fast a CPU work with an OS u can not judge using "the number" in front the Ghz label to confirm that it really slow.
lighter OS and it structures for working with the instruction on the CPU is a huge factor for the speed.
i dont think N8 will make the same mistake like my current CFW 5800xm.
if nokia brave enough to put USB OTG feature that capable to handle bigger storage or other phone storage that mean the CPU is really working fine and capable to do it.
using down clock can be a smart move to saving more battere juice and leave the CPU work with minimum heat that can eat ur battery juice fast.
and if u still worry bout N8 perfomance with 680Mhz CPU please just choose another phone with snapdragon power but i can tell u one thing,no other phone have so much feature completly built under one compact device like nokia N8.
u can read all the smartphone listed on gsmarena and still u will find that N8 is a really all in one gear,just like MacGyver victorinox knife.
im not interest with gaming,12mpx,or other show off thingy.
but i will try to buy it because it is a complete phone,it is cheap compare with the features,680Mhz is in the middle clockrate my other target dream phone HTC touchpro have a slower CPU and no GPU and still it is fast enough running the old winmo,256Mb its fine cause the new OS have N900 multitask ability.
and dont u realise N8 can adit HD video?that mean 256Mb is not the only memory,it might be using virtual memory just like windows or linux method.

btw the phone is not in ur hand yet,so any complain bout this phone is only base on ur assumption and hatred.u can judge it if u already tried it.im not a fanboy,i use to hate nokia too.but after some research and try to using some of nokia phone,i think they are gud just like samsung SE LG and other company accept apple,i used to be an iphone user too no videocall?what a joke.
well if u dont like it dont buy it.

  • Dont cry baby

Anonymous, 10 Jun 2010Even if N8 is little slow then we are not going to die.read a few post back, ali was saying that 680mhz CPU is faster than 1ghz CPU (maybe because he looks at the numbers, not at the frequencies lol). That started all this debate..

  • Hase

Yeah, it has samsung parts in it 'coz Nokia knows how put the parts in good use.See? even though nokia didn't produced those parts, they are atleast able to make a good phone from them. Unlike samsung who owns it yet they can't make any good mobiles.

Ali Abdulla, 10 Jun 2010you know that Symbain is HW accelerated right? anyhow.. no, ... moreAgain and again, GPU acceleration will still be based on the CPU, without a good CPU, your GPU is useless. And 1 more thing i forgot, nokia N8 doesn't have a GPU ok? The accelerator you are referring to is an integrated accelerator functionality of the ARM 11 CPU..
OK?

Stop with all your GPU voodoos because users who are reading your post are already misguided..

2. after it broke, look at some of it's parts..

3. viola!! a samsung parts inside

if you think im a liar, go grab your latest Nokia phone and repeat step 1..

Dont cry technician, 10 Jun 2010And since you are crying loudly for fast cpu then I suggest you ... moreThis is N8 thread not N9.. Accept the fact that N8 is slower.. And also what we are debating here is not the functionality of N8, yes N8 has nice features, but the reality is, it is slower than other phones out there.

Just accept it.. I know its hard, but its for the best..

No way am I gonna use Samsung, your galaxy thing is pure crap. N8 is way much better than galaxy except for the multitouch. I wasn't even pertaining to samsung and you just busted in and started saying sh*t.
Nokia has been making GOOD history for years.
Samsung isn't better than Nokia and never will it be.

Dont cry Hase, 10 Jun 2010you want tissue? iphone4 and Nokia N8 can be compared, becaus... moreyou know that Symbain is HW accelerated right?

anyhow..
no, i dont care about gaming, i game using PC...

what i do care about the most is Multitasking... and camera..

N8 from the video is very responsive and does multitask good(unlike some toy phones).. bit disappointed about the 256mb ram, i know symbian is this and that, but wanted a nice 512mb boost for a change...

as it was mentioned b4, if a 0.1 milisecond lag will kill you mobile experience, then its just sad...

also, in symbian^3, it runs kinda the same as on PC... making use of GPU and CPU, ffs enough with the CPU argument, the CPU of the N8 has so little processing to do since all the visual effects are handled by its mighty GPU..


stop using "stop crying ****", grow up and have a mature argument or gtfo..

Meego flagship will made for compete with 'Garbage' Samsung Galaxy S and Wave. Without Super Amoled they are nothing to happy about.
