i've had my N8 for 8 months now and it's still going strong, doesn't hang and battery lasts 2 days with constant heavy use. for the last week i've been using sgs (android) and ip4 to compare to my N8 in the end i stuck with my N8 yes the other 2 phones have a prettier os but that's about it when it comes down to it the hardware and software of the N8 is just as good as the others. you can also make folders and organise menu screens in symbian aswell. so honestly i don't understand why everyone is complaining about symbian3. for your reference im a IT Manager so i work with all 3 os, when setting up company email and sync everyones phones to our server/wi-fi.

Nokia N86 and N8 have digital microphones thats why Steve Litchfield used them to film The Phones Show..

  • AnonD-3575

as for the other features:
fm transmitter - i use it daily in my car, at parties,... the aux cable is not always an option (not all car stereos of other audio devices have aux in - same goes for bluetooth streaming). also, the cable is a nuisance in the car (depending where your aux in is) and you dont have it always with you
tv out - you need to buy the cable (i got it from a friend's n95, she didnt use it) and i dont use it as often as hdmi, but its great for showing pictures, videos, even playing music or games. not to mention web browsing on a big screen
hdmi - i use that more on my lcd, mostly for watching videos and showing pictures (with nokia bigscreen app) and its great combined with a wireless mouse. only files up to 1.5gb work. i hope "anna" improves on that, but you can always split a bigger file.
usb on-the-go - i've tried connecting a lot of stuff and most worked: usb memories, mice, keyboards, led lights, other mobiles (dummy, android, symbian), external hdd,... some didnt work: usb hub, and older keyboard, gamepad (although a gamepad would be sooo cool :)

so, basically, you can navigate to a party while listening to music wirelessly, get there, play music on any hifi stereo, record everything and when you sober up, show the pictures / videos on the tv and copy them to everybody's usb memories / phones,...

no other mobile can do that, no mater how many fart apps they have

when recording videos, the second mic is used to record stereo sound, which surprised me as well
not even sgs2 has stereo sound and it makes a big difference

E7 is good but no comparison wid N8,bcoz E7 and N9 ve no card slot nd no 12mp camera like N8.now i m seeking other nokia phones like n8, but inspite of good searching, i could't find like it. but i m still searching, lets see.

I don't use TV-out but I do use HDMI which is excellent when used with the Big Screen app. The FM transmitter is useful for playing music through a car stereo if there isn't an auxiliary socket in the car, but yes a cable is a better option for that.
USB on the go can be useful for transferring files from a usb stick to the phone and vice versa. Lastly, noise cancellation is good for recording sounds in videos. Sound playback is clear and crisp. I recently took some videos of my daughters playing in the park and when I played it back on the TV via HDMI I was surprised at how good the audio quality was. Every sound was picked up, including birds singing in the background.

Cheers.

Are these features commonly used, do they make a lot of difference-

-tv out.
-fm transmitter(isnt aux cable more easy to use).
-usb on the go.
-HDMI port.
-Active noise cancelation with dedicated mike.

Is there a lot of difference between 1ghz single core proccesor and 1ghz dual core proccesor?

Thanks.
