I`ve had my N8 now for two weeks. I`ve had no issues with software freezing. Personally , it`s certainly the best phone i have owned. As a phone it has a lovely crisp , clear voice conversation when making calls. Texting ... I just love the way it puts your texts into "conversations" , speech bubbles that you can scroll through with individual contacts. So simple yet brilliant ! The 12MP 720p HD camera is outstanding. As a keen photographer and owning a nikon i have to say the quality is very good, and as mentioned in another review the panaroma APP you can download from OVI for free is fantastic.

Facebook and twitter are on your homescreen that are constantly updated if you have your widgets "online". No need to keep signing in to keep updated. The music player is very easy to use and the FM transmitter is great. How did i live without it because i`m using it all the time in my car. Set the frequency you want to play your music on from your N8 and tune your radio to the same frequency and bingo, you`re listening to your music crystal clear , no wires, no fuss. You can even stream internet radio and listen via your car radio. great :O)

The Sat Nav is a true dedicated sat nav. I also downloaded an APP from ovi called traffic info which will tell you any incidents en-route , be it roadworks, lane closures or traffic accidents, all free of charge .I`ve ordered the in car holder and will be using theses features regulary.

I haven`t mastered how to stream BBC iplayer on 3G yet which apparently you can do and i believe you can`t do that on an iphone, so that is a major plus for watching tv away from home.

My only critisim is the battery life does let it down slightly. I`m only getting 2 days but i suppose you could argue the phone is doing a hell of alot of work to keep me happy, hence no stars lost. Full 5, buy, you wont be disappointed !!!

Ive had this phone about a month now and I cant believe how easy and intuitive it is to use, within half an hour of opening the box i had all the home screens just the way I want them and my emails and Facebook set up. I had this phone as a replacement for a HTC desire which I returned due to its pathetic battery life and annoying habit of dropping signal and cutting me off in the middle of a phonecall. The N8 has neither of these problems, even though its actually a smaller battery in the N8 than the Desire I can get about four times longer battery life. As usual with Nokia it does the basics brilliantly, voice calls and txting are as simple and efficient. The camera is brilliant and has to be used to be believed with excellent video quality as well. The HDMI output is a damn good idea as is the FM transmitter although tuning it in was a little ticklish initially it works well enough. I suppose the question that everybody wants answered is how does it compare to the iphone? Well in my view there really is no comparison, they are totally different products. The N8 is efficient, rugged, extremely well built and for want of a better word, workmanlike. Thats by no means a bad thing, I was always scared of breaking my iphone, it seems delicate and fragile in comparison to the N8. I have an active job and I tend to be pretty hard on phones as my iphone sadly found out but I have no such worries with the N8. The web browser on the N8 is probably not as slick as the iphone but it works just as well in my view, in fact I found updating my facebook & Twitter accounts no harder than on the iphone. In summary I would say if you are an Apple devotee than the N8's not for you and the same goes for Android users.Read more ›

UPDATE 20/11/2011: After having owned (and gushed about) the N8 for 10 months, mine completely died on me. It froze up one afternoon, then shut itself down and refused to turn back on, the battery wouldn't charge and my PC didn't recognise it when plugged in. Hard resets failed to have any affect at all. A quick web search showed that this was not an uncommon occurrence and was in all likelihood a failure of the phone's motherboard, a fault that apparently plagued early N8's. I returned it to the local dealer and they sent it off to Nokia for repair - cue a 2-week wait while Nokia gave my phone the once over. Then, a month later, the phone broke once again, was sent to Nokia once again and was returned to me once again. That repair lasted all of half a day before the exact same thing happened. My provider's rather annoying policy is not to replace a phone until it had been repaired three times, so we'll see just how well this third (and final) repair lasts.

I stand by my original assessment that the N8 is a fantastically well-featured phone, and if I have to give up on it then I honestly can't think of another mobile that comes close in terms of functionality. Unfortunately mine seems to have been one of the worse examples, not helped by Nokia's inability to fix it properly. I haven't amended my review score as I still think that it's a fantastic phone (if you get a working one), but my apologies to anyone who read my review and bought an N8, only to find out that it wasn't quite as bullet-proof as they may have thought. If you're still interested in buying one, then this is my original review...

I was extremely hesitant about buying an N8 before actually picking one up. I'd read the (not exactly gushing) reviews from certain gadget websites and those very nearly put me off.
