It will be 23 months tomorrow since I first put a message against this topic and I am still delighted with my N8. I still have it on Anna because I don't want it to look like those other phones. I have kept an eye on the current Nokia phones but I am yet to convince myself that there is anything better than my N8. The Lumina 920 got close, until I realised that it does not have a radio (and I am aware of the possibility of having a radio in a headset). My N8 is here for quite a while yet, I hope.
As I said in my first posting, almost 2 years ago - Well done Nokia!
I've had my N8 since when it very first came out. Since then, despite some of the frustrations that it's given me (mainly disappearing memory), it's served me well. From taking pictures to listening to music, to watching videos via the HDMI port. Still love the aluminum body, also. Whenever I talk about this phone to others, I always look at it like it was Nokia's finest phone from build quality, to everything it could do.
TBH despite comming through the hanging issues due to the motherboard fault and the fact that the early versions were so buggy that th ephone was bound to freeze just when you needed it,
I have come to love my N8
and can't see anything else on the market currently that looks like it could serve as a replacemet,
I've molded the N8 around my life and it's fleability and wide range of features have alowed me to do so, moving to anything on the market today means compromising by loosing one or more of these
wether it's the great camera, the automatic bluetooth synch with PC, the Nokia Maps apps, automatically switching profiles, direct hdmi output, micro sd or the robustness of the device
Ok web browsing isn't as slick as other devices and the social apps lag behind and there arn't 1000001 games and other apps, but these functions are adiquate on the N8
Given that there is nothing out there that for me can compete, I think I'll stick with my nice cheep sim only plan on my N8 for a good while yet,
