Nokia N8 Review

 

Even a hotshot camera can't save Nokia's N8 from a warmed-over OS, uncharacteristically cheap build quality and slow processor.

Nokia N8 (Unlocked)

 

The N8, Nokia's flagship phone, saddles solid hardware with an arcane, difficult-to-use operating system that makes it very frustrating to use.

Excellent voice quality. Strong battery life. Spectacular 12-megapixel camera.

User interface is abysmal.

Review: Nokia N8 Smartphone

 

Nokia's newest phone comes with insane entertainment chops and a Symbian OS that resembles Android. Too bad it comes up short in far too many...

Anodized aluminum body easily makes this one of Nokia’s sleekest designs. Ships with multimedia cables. Does a fantastic job at multimedia playback. Video chat-ready with a front-facing VGA camera. Mini-HDMI port pumps out video and Dolby Digital Plus...

Competitive with the Pros (iPhone, Android, Windows 7), but clearly won’t convert the entrenched. Non-removable battery = two steps back. Symbian^3 OS’s lack of polish puts a hurt on quick navigation. Dual card bay (one for memory, one for sim) is a...

Nokia N8

 

When I first got my hands on the Nokia N8 ($550 unlocked; price as of 10/3/2010) back in June, I was impressed with its hardware and multimedia features, but had the feeling that the software was stale and outdated. After spending more time with the...

HD video support ; Superb 12-megapixel camera

Software feels dated ; Keyboard difficult to use

The Nokia N8 has some cutting-edge multimedia features, including a 12-megapixel camera and HDMI output, but the operating system feels stale and dated.

Nokia N8 Review: Nokia's New Flagship

 

I remember one of the first mobile phones I ever used being a Nokia 5110i. It was among Nokia's earliest of devices that packed an easy to use and straightforward interface in a supremely well-built package. Since we didn't have as many phone launches...

Nokia N8 Review

 

It feels like we've been talking about the Nokia N8 for a long time. February 2010 saw the first murmurings, followed by a string of leaks, rumors, semi-accurate previews and finally, around seven months later, a commercial release. In the meantime...

Nokia N8 vs Apple iPhone 4

 

The iPhone took the cell phone industry by surprise in 2007, and managed to usurp half of its profits for only three years in active duty, with only 3% of the world's handsets sold. This was mostly at the financial expense of Nokia, which got knocked...
