Nokia N8 Symbian Smartphone Features

Take a wish list of all the multimedia features you'd want in a phone, then call them the N8. 12 mega-pixel camera for shots that rival dedicated cameras, proper Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, instead of the rubbish lenses and poor LED flashes found on most camera phones. Then add in HD (720p) quality video recording and a separate microphone dedicated to audio capturing crisp sound to accompany all your HD footage. They've even added a HDMI port on the phone; you can pump all that HD footage directly from your phone to your HD TV.

Much better than expected

It works very well as a phone and a messaging device. On screen keyboard is great. Camera is amazing and quick to take photos. Software is a little clunky and get the odd "out of memory" error but overall I think it's a great phone. Call quality is also very good and the best part is reception. I gave up an htc desire z as I moved office and got no reception. With the N8 I get 2 bars and phone calls come through fine. Very glad I bought it.

Great Phone

Had the phone for a month now, and battery life is amazing, about the same size is my E71 just a bit thicker, but still slim. Loads of great apps now on Ovi and Maps and sat nav are free an dont need to be online to use. Runs Mail for Exchange so works with your corporate exchange servers flawlessly.
