Nokia N8

 

Despite its excellent hardware the N8 risks becoming Nokia's last hurrah in the smartphone wars thanks to the shortcomings of Symbian^3.

Superb camera, Great build, AMOLED screen is bright and colourful

Symbian^3 is limited, no Android killer, Needs a higher-res display, No native DivX support

Nokia N8 review

 

Nokia's time in the doldrums has been well-documented, but with a revised UI and a boatload of top-end tech, it's hoping the new N8 will catapult it back to the sharp end of the smartphone game.

12MP camera ; HDMI port ; Ovi Maps

Symbian^3 still seems archaic ; It's not the thinnest handset ; Messaging is something of a chore

Hands-on video: Is this Nokia's best ever smartphone?

Nokia N8

 

Nokia's dominance in the mobile world has really taken a knock over the last few years, and the N8 is the company's attempt at reasserting itself as one of the big players, among the likes of Apple, HTC and Samsung. The first of Nokia's handsets to...

12-megapixel camera, music player, HD video capture, HDMI port, relatively cheap

Uninspiring design, clunky web browsing, unreliable touch UI, revamped OS feels dated

While the N8 does offer some quality features such as its 12-megapixel camera and HD video capture, not to mention its music player and generous built-in memory, it feels slightly clunky when compared with the rest of the top-tier smartphones currently...

Nokia N8 review

 

The smartphone pioneer has upped its game with more powerful hardware, a new OS and a 12MP camera

Nokia’s latest serves up a fresh spin on an ageing formula, but ultimately fails to ace the new smartphone competition

Nokia N8 review

 

Nokia's new flagship phone arrives with an arsenal of media features

Great camera ; Superb battery life ; Clear and crisp screen ; Decent audio output ; Stylish aluminium casing ; HDMI-out port

Average virtual keyboards ; Unintuitive UI ; Unimpressive internet experience ; Confusing connection management ; Poor social network integration

Nokia's reputation as a leader in the smartphone market has been under increasing pressure in recent years, as a string of 'high end' handsets have failed to capture the minds and wallets of the phone-buying public.

The long-awaited and frequently delayed Nokia N8 is finally here. Has it been worth the wait? Is this the comeback kid Nokia has been promising, or the shape of phones to come from the Finnish giant? We…

Nokia N8 review

 

But the Nokia N8 falls short when it comes to software and user experience - the downfall of previous Nokia N-Series phones we've reviewed.

The Nokia N8 is a slick and stylish smartphone with superb multimedia features. But the Symbian software is a long way from competing with similar offerings from Apple and Google.

Nokia N8 Symbian^3 smartphone review

 

At the end of the day, I can’t say that the Nokia N8 is a bad phone. It’s actually quite good. The AMOLED display is brilliant, the haptic feedback and on-screen keyboard are quite usable, and the 12MP camera is quite impressive (under the right...
