I installed the battery meter from the OVI store but can't find it on my phone. Anyone know how i can find the app?

Also, the opera 10.1 app keeps shutting down. Is this a phone problem or an apps problem?.

Thanks

Godzilla89, 23 Jan 2011I wanted to get the n8, but then the problem came with the fone ... moreMy brother has the the Samsung. Good graphics etc, but does not get close on camera hardware etc. In fact, a couple of weeks back he bought a sony digital camera, as he was not impressed with zoom etc on Samsung galaxy. Software is better, but again Nokia are working on that right now and with several new firmware updates planned things are looking bright!!

I wanted to get the n8, but then the problem came with the fone not switching on. My service provider advised me to choose another handset. I ended up with the galaxy s. What a phone. Glad I made that choice.sorry nokia, lost my faith in you.

I have owned the N8 over 2 months now and I have never had a problem with it! Cameras on most phones are at best average quality - this however, really does equal most compact cameras. Nokia really have taken camera phones to a different level!!!

For the money, seriously nothing beats the N8. Anyone know when the new firmware update is coming - rumour is Monday 24th January but I will believe this when I see it.

I'm eargely awaiting the N9. But knowing South Africa, itz probably gna cost in the region of R9500-R10000 which is too much fer me as Im a college student. The N8 looks so tempting though, bt nah, I'll wait
