All sgs2 user complaing heating & battery backup problems.Needs more than 2hrs for full charging. Getting heated after half hour of gameplay.only 5 to 6 hrs battery backup.See urself on sgs2 post & help u r sgs2 friends.

What is talking about android vs symbian. See review of symbian belle.

None of any android mobile has battery back up like nokia.

Talking about apps & games there r so many websites that provides free of cost. Android store has many apps but 80% useless.

Something else to add to your response is he mentions the SGS2 has the capability to record 1080p video with only an 8 MP camera but the N8's 12 MP camera can only record 720p video.
Well, in response to that it has nothing to do with hardware but has everything to do with software. It would only take a minor update to give the N8 1080p recording and that may happen with future updates. In any case, 1080p's maximum resolution of 2,073,600 pixels or 2.07 Mega pixels (1920*1080) so the N8's camera is perfectly capable of 1080p recording.
I also agree with your rebuttal of his silly statement of opening 3 to 5 HD games simultaneously. Why in the world would he want to have that many games running at the same time? Utterly pointless.
Anyway, I think it's best in future to ignore such people who are clearly uninformed and do not have a clue what they are talking about.

Best regards.

According to the specifications the LG has a 1500mAh battery which is the same size as the one on my SGS, so by that logic it should last about the same as the SGS. Typically, I will get around 2 to 3 days use on a full charge, so I would expect the LG to last not quite as long due to it having an LCD screen instead of an AMOLED screen, which uses less power than an LCD. Having said that, the difference is only marginal so expect just a few hows less of battery use.
Other factors to consider to increase battery life would be to turn off 3G (also known as HSDPA) when not in use as well as WiFi, Bluetooth, wall papers (especially live wallpapers) and to make sure there are no processes running in the background that are synchronizing data such as news feeds, Email and weather widgets. Something else worth considering, is that when the phone is new the battery won't last very long but will improve over time after a few charge and discharge cycles until it is properly calibrated.

So, as you already have an N8 I would say yes, go for the LG. It will be a good compliment to the N8 and give you the best of both worlds.

All the best.
