The N8 ticks all these boxes.
I recommend this as a Mp3 player in the current market. Its not a perfect player. But Nokia's in built music playing software is ok and above average. The N8 has 16gb phone memory and 32gb sd slot. Nothing to mega but its ok for me at the moment, until someone makes a Mp3 player that I want.
The N8 was a fantastic phone in its day. I loved it. The camera is excellent. Its a bit fiddly sometimes. I wouldn't recommend the N8 as a smart phone in 2015, its 3G and the SYMBIAN store has been closed down.
I put a cheap Sim card in the phone to stop the annoying messages. I put the phone in Offline mode. It only plays music now. No hassle . The battery life in offline mode is very good. I get around 24 hours of music play from the N8 with the inbuilt FM transmitter. The FM Transmitter is the N8`s party piece. I don't know any phone or (Decent) Mp3 player that has this option.
Bluetooth works fine with my Bluetooth headphones. It connected ok with my works ford stereo also.
Overall Im very please with my purchase.
It does the phone basics well, better than average reception, very quick on 3G connections,good call quality, and voice announcements of calls when the number matches a phonebook entry, and voice dialing too.
As a smartphone it is good, but perhaps not quite as nice a user interface as the iPhone. It has 16Gb of memory too. Operation is quick, and there are lots of widgets and stuff to play with. One or two apps I tried from the OVI store are a little temperamental, but most work well and a lot are free on line. The OVI PC client is not as slick as iTunes but it syncs my calendar and contacts from Outlook 2010 just fine.
the FM radio works well and has a cool interface, and the FM transmitter is an added bonus. The camera is great and takes good still and video although it produces noisy pictures in low light. The flash works well though. Compared with my Canon D400 it is average but for a phone camera it is great.
Battery life is good, two days with a fair bit of fiddling with the apps and camera shots. the battery is built in though like iPhone.
All in all this is a great alternative to the iPhone or Android, with better battery life and most importantly it works well as a phone!!
Only reason I didn't give it 5* is that the price came down £30 the day after it arrived :-(
Update May 2011 - still really like this phone and the camera in particular, but disappointed that it failed completely after only six months. It wouldn't charge or turn on. Took it back to Nokia approved repair centre and a week later picked up a replacement, which so far (fingers crossed)is fine, new Symbian version loaded which has made it a little quicker in operation and more stable too. I really want this phone to work well for the future 'cos it has lots of nice features and is generally good quality - but Nokia need to sort their quality control.
Overall it's a sleek design, sturdy quality build. The size is big enough for the screen to be comfortable without the phone being too big to fit a pocket. The touchscreen is very responsive. Symbian Anna looks and feels decent. I've toyed with Symbian Belle on other devices and it is great, so I can't wait for it to come to the N8. Yes, Symbian comes with an expiration date. So do all phones. Apple dropped support for its first two iPhones quite soon.
Ok, so it is not the fastest, biggest, meanest smartphone on the market. It wasn't when it came out and it certainly isn't now, a year and a half later, so some apps can take a few seconds to load. The camera is still king of the hill. Not many phones out there with proper xenon flash, and it does matter. Dual led doesn't come close and forget about single led.
As far as apps are concerned, I'm not an app-maniac. There are apps for the stuff I care about. I don't need 100 apps for every single thing. Of the 3 home screens of Anna I've already removed one and still struggle to fill the other two. I just don't need much stuff at first touch. A shortcut to the apps folder can take care of everything I don't use daily.
As of this date, I would not recommend it as a cutting edge phone. But if you are looking for a quality affordable smartphone to carry you through the next couple of years until NFC and 4G catch on, this one is a good candidate, especially if the camera matters to you.
I've had some fun playing around with this phone, but admittedly, it is no longer worth the price.
The processor (at very best) is average.
The application selection is pretty limited compared to apple/android.
The camera.... Well, if you need a phone with good camera, pay some more and get a better one.
I would recommend getting a similar priced or similar specification android phone. Either way you will get a better deal.
