Well, I am using Nokia N8 from the past 6 months and i think now I am ready to write a review! When it was out in the market first, I was very excited about this mainly because of its 12 megapixels camera. I use my mobile for mainly phone calls and camera. So undoubtedly this became my dream phone without even owning it. Soon I bought this on T-Mobile network for a monthly contract of £20.42 over 24 months.
I was totally amazed when it first arrived- the bright orange phone which i thought had the best features. But slowly many of these faded. Within first week, i happened to drop my phone from my pocket while running and the phone got chipped off at the three corners with the silver metal from inside exposed. Well soon i got a cover and this was temporarily solved. But this just showed how sensitive its casing is. The case for Nokia E71 was really hard and good quality when compared to this.
The keyboard is amazing especially it's ability to change directions- can become a qwerty on by just turning it. Although this sometimes doesn't happen instantly and i just keep turning it back and forth to get the qwerty keys.
The most talked about 12 MP camera is really cool- very clear photos- can easily take photos of a birthday party without thinking twice about a real camera. The colours and contrast is good. Even the video is of good HD quality.
It has a built-in GPS and maps can be downloaded from Ovi maps.
its touch pad is good, a lot better than my old Nokia N97 but i have seen better ones. I had a few instances where the phone got shut off and restarted on its own because the touch pad got too confused i guess!
There are a lot of apps in this phone but still not good enough to beat the iPhone. And I am not a fan of iPhone and down own one but have definitely worked with one.
But i still think that this could be great tool for an office worker with all its smartphone features to keep appointments, manage emails, and browse web easily.
For me it is just another Nokia phone with an excellent camera.
Summary: Better than N97 but not good enough to beat an Iphone
