I am using a Nokia N8, since last December, and disappointed very much despite the appreciating features in it.
1. The Symbian^3 OS - Though Nokia has developed a super smart phone with super smart features, they have not changed their OS, the Symbian. Even though Symbian^3 is new, it is not fast as other latest OS, such as Android, which is preferred and popular OS in latest smart phones. I feel together with other N8 users that Android is the most preferred software for N8.
2. Poor battery life - As it is a smart phone with incomparable features, it must have adequate power for its functions. That is not available here, though this problem is somehow managed by Nokia Bots.
3. Web browser - The web browser is very slow and sluggish, so I downloaded Opera Mobile 10.1 but I found that I could not make it as my default browser. Though I have chosen it as my default browser through Default applications tab in Settings, when I click on a link in SMS, it opens in Nokia N8's browser. I appreciate if N8 has any option to make Opera Mobile 10.1 as its default browser.
4. No .mkv, .avi support - N8 doesn't play any .mkv files. It is hard to believe that though N8 has unbeatable features in camera,video etc., it is lower than other smart phones when it comes to support .mkv and .avi files.
Further problems will be posted as soon as possible. The reason to post here is not just to share what I think, but also I want Nokia to take these comments into account and to try at their best to fulfill the user requirements.
Guys I hope you will be supporting this cause.
