Dear brother,

Who ever is willing to compare N8 with Vivaz, I think it's more or less stupid.

The biggest reason is the camera. N8's camera is way better than any other camera phone in the market and it's not particularly because of no of mega pixels.. For god's sake grow up people.. N8's camera is great not due to it's mega pixel count.. Just google it if you don't have the camera.. Else just go outside and shoot. You'll see the difference.. It has the biggest sensor in a mobile phone camera ever. So the photos are sharper, smoother and detailed like never before.

I don't know why the hell some one is comparing ordinary Vivaz camera with N8's camera..

Let's say I have got only 3 MP for my N8.. Then also I will select N8's camera Only due to its fantastic sensor size. Mega pixel count is nothing but bigger size when it comes to the photography. The sensor size and exposure control abilities of the camera matters the most for 'quality' of photography and ask some professional and he'll say about N8.

I'm not going to say any other things which are good in N8. I only said if anyone is going to compare damn iphones, vivaz, satio or any sh.t with N8, he's so lame and don't know anything about photography.

Cheers N8 owners...

PS: I feel sorry for those who're using N8 but haven't used their great camera potential.. For me, i can live without N8 but not without its camera.

AnonD-2965, 16 Apr 2011Se vivaz is better than n8.? 720mhz processor with more advance... more"720mhz processor with more advanced graphics chip."

The Qualcomm processor used by vivaz has a pretty suckish battery life and poor architecture. And the broadcom bcm 2727 (n8) gpu can do 32mil triangles/sec while the SGX and do 28 at best.

"Same symbian60 OS"

Same OS, yes. same version, no. The n8 comes with symbian^3 which a huge improvement in terms of performance, usability and visual compared to s60v5. Vivaz doesnt even come with kinetic scrolling for god's sake. And dont get me started on the shittastic support provided by SE.

"No purple screen issue"

Not EVERY unit has the purple screen issue. And i would take capacitive AMOLED screens anyday than a resistive TFT one.

"Both got 720p HD"

N8 can do 25 fps which is slightly smoother than the 24 fps of the vivaz. Besides that, one could easily improve the video recording on the n8 by using a mod or an app (camera pro). I tried searching on google on how to get 30fps on a vivaz and so far i havent got any results.

"Vivaz is at 18000, n8 26800"

What do you fu**ing expect? The vivaz has been in the market way longer than the n8. Of course the price is lower.

Not only that, the n8 has :

-free maps
-usb otg
-xenon flash
-aluminium body
-better camera
-dual mics for stereo sound recording and active noise
cancellation during calls

and so on...

having this N8 as my main phone was a nightmare.. it hang so often that I must wait the phone to low batt and shut down itself.. bring to warranty they say if open it might scratch the casing/housing, ask me to wait until low batt then turn on.. the screen is seriously defective, i feel shame when people ask me what happen on my phone screen.. It just took about 2 months for the price to fall from RM1700 to RM1100 in Malaysia! Even Satio/N97 price is higher then it right now..

gadget noob, 16 Apr 2011Throw all away, cos if it happens, people won't buy it, I feel l... moreSearch the net before you open your mouth. The defect is real and it's not a small problem. The majority of N8 and C7 users don't even know the defect and some Nokia reps will even tell you it's a feature. The fact is Nokia admited the defect and it is real and not made up.

My link below will show you the net full of complaints about the defect. Wake up and stop trying to cover up the defect.­creen+defect&nomo=1

Hey friends i want to update on the GSMARena Review of N8 Video Playback

They said it wont play files larger than 2 GB and wont seek reverse/forward files larger than 1.5 GB but today I checked a 720p 3.3GB MKV Movie on it and to amazingly it played it and even was able to seek the file reverse/forward but just starting the file took a bit more time than normal files...but that is ok since having a 680MHz processor it can play so good...i lyk my N8 a lot...
