Interesting, after I updated N8 software seems the image quality increased even more, now images taken in poor light look like less processed and more natural with more detail. I love my Nokia N8.. by the way, while ago there was a big accident - my N8 appeared completely in the water!!.. the phone just vibrated, the lights blinked, and the phone dead.. I thought that was it.. the friend of mine suggested just to dry the phone very well, and see it might recovers.. I didn't have a realistic hope, but I did it... and unbelievable, after about one week of drying process the phone turned on!! it was acting a bit crazy for another week, but now it works like before!!! I couldn't believe but i was very happy because I had some important images already stored on the phone...

In my opinion, I think that Nokia N8 is still the best camera phone out in the market today. It could perfectly replace a conventional, point-and-shoot camera anytime, which is pretty convenient since I don't have to bring two gadgets at a time.

I also love the fact that the back cover of this phone is made of anodized aluminium, which could greatly help in avoiding (if not totally preventing) scratches and normal wear-and-tear from daily use. However, it is also stated that this phone's screen is made of Gorilla Glass. I can attest that the said material does not guarantee a one hundred percent over all protection against scratches. I accidentally dropped my boyfriend's N8 once and it hit a rock. After we inspect it for damages, we saw that there is a deep but very little scratch mark in it. So, if you still want an overall protection, it is recommended that you must apply screen protector in it.

The CPU's clock speed, on the other hand, is very disappointing. With such great features and camera that this phone has, I was expecting that Nokia would have try to at least clock its speed to 1GHZ but turns out, it only has 680MHZ which makes playing games a total frustration!

I can sometimes experience occasional lags into it especially when I'm opening multiple apps simultaneously. In short, multitasking is a chore!

I'm posting my opinion in my Symbian Anna experience. I haven't tried toying with it on a Symbian Belle OS but I heard that it's much better than the previous one.

Anyway, this is a great phone! And also, hands down to the camera! But I'm not buying one of these again anytime soon. :).

Rolabouncer, 29 Apr 2012i dont know what's wrong with ma C-drive, anytime i install... moreIts because the apps, not the C drive, any app can let the user to choose the destination drive, but even so, it can copy some private files to C drive, because the C drive is more secure.

Got N8 for more than a year now. My best phone ever. Use it as Phone, gps, camera, video recorder, modem, psp, flash drive, music player in my car through play via radio, hdmi player to my tv, my email client, mobile office,ebook reader and mobile browser. No other phone so flexible.

I have the N8 for one year and 2 months and I have same opinions as many of you...

Excellent phone: Best music+Camera Quality combo possible for its price... I recommended it to some guys and they're quite happy with it.

(Of course, maybe iPhone 4S has slightly better audio with somewhat acceptable camera, but it costs as much as a high end laptop... And I have to be really nuts or really filthy rich to buy it. But, I'm neither of these.)

Worzel, 26 Apr 2012@celladik Whatever is included in custom firmwares won'... moreminor update for me is just a bug fixing update. But im really sure that the leaked fw is from nokia as the same strategy they leaked it to know the feedback from user and eventually released the final fw, i've tested the browser of original belle as to compare to the latest leaked one and the leaked is a lot faster... Also the music player improves from options to tab, more widgets and more coming soon..
