HD Frame Rate Improvement

I've seen mention on the Internet of an improvement in the frame rate (from 25 fps to 30 fps) for HD recording on the Nokia N8-00. Is this coming in an official firmware update or is this a hack?

Flagship Phone? Really??

It is using an ARM11 CPU. This is their top of the line phone? C'mon. Apple, Moto, HTC are all using Cortex A8 based processors since last year. This not even released Nokia is going to be their top of the line running an ARM11.

And the screen res is not even close to the new iPhone and Android Flagship phones.

Google Apps

Will I be able to use / download Google Apps with this device? I am hearing two different stories from Nokia. Paranoid

Sticky Main Screen and Calendar

When I return to the main screen from an app or another use, the phone freezes for about 30 seconds and will not take an immediate command. If commands are tapped they will then be performed in quick succession when the unit wakes up.

When I go to the calendar it takes quite a while for the days in the month view to populate and then to be able to write a meeting or to-do with alarm. I do have a very full calendar with a lot of meetings and alarms repeating for a few years.

Does anyone else experience these delays? And, have you been able to do something about them.

OVI maps

I experienced trouble using OVI Maps in certain parts of the eastern U.S. Does anyone have a sense for whether the Google Maps Oral Navigation application will be available for the N8? I am parking my n95 for the n8. Shocked

Contacts and other negatives

I have used my Green Nokia N8 with Ovi Music Unlimited and 32 GB extra memory (totaling 48 GB) 9 days since I bought it. I read your interesting review.

I understand you dislikes on certain UI features, but some like and some don't. I like most of them.

There are some comments and disagreements I would like to share

1. Contacts

"They are clumsy, and not as simple as those offered by others. For example, it took efforts across multiple days to even create an Ovi account."

Creating Ovi account took multiple days? Really? Never heard from anyone.

Nokia N8 has excellent and intuitive contact application that not only work as simple contact application but extends its reach to Social media. When I got my N8 I first used Mail fo...

Frowny Face

I'm sort of disappointed. The proposed hardware of this phone gave me wet dreams for the last few months, yet the review implies that it chokes with its operating system. Boo.

Too bad we're not at the point where one could sideload a different operating system onto any smartphone hardware.

Symbian^3... better or worse than S60?

My opinion... worse.

I enjoyed both S80 and S60 immensely. Some of the features that Eric lists as negatives of S60 are actually some of the features I appreciate the most about S60. I love S60 3rd Edition, especially Feature Pack 2. My current phone (a Nokia E75) does not have any issues or insurmountable problems to speak of. It does not crash, it does not pause for long periods of time when the screen rotates, it takes pictures in a snappy manner, and everything works properly (including the browser).

However, S60 5th Edition was, in my opinion, the first departure from decency for Nokia. I finally played with a Nokia 5230 Nuron, and found that I did not like the two-tap interface method. The touch screen was resistive, and re...

Contacts

"The only way I was able to sync my vast contact database with the N8 was to set up an Ovi account and use Nokia's account sync tools."

Seriously? You can't sync contacts with Exchange and/or Outlook?

All 5 3g bands

I'm glad that someone finally makes a phone with both T-Mobile and AT&T 3G bands. Awesome.

Sad attempt

I said it on the phone specs discussion board, but this is SO underpowered to be a flagship device. Also looks like they they didn't really work that hard at doing anything innovative on Symbian 3. Not looking good for Nokia!

Plasticky???

I have never touched it but it is supposed to be mostly aluminum and hence light but very durable. I have not heard other reviewers describe it as you described it.
