Nokia N8 with top class features: the smartphone under scanner

Nokia N8 was launched and as expected the smartphone is under scanner of gadget analysts and users who find it a great Nokia device till date with some of the top in the class features. But sadly the smartphone is not a runaway success and many find it difficult to place it against the BlackBerry, iPhone and other Android devices.


On a closer scrutiny what the device lacked was a great operating system as the updated Symbian^3 was a complete disgrace which could not save this high-end smartphone that boasts of its excellent build quality and astounding camera.


Nokia N8 is gallant attempt in times when leading mobile players are turning to Androids or iPhones. Symbian which is still the largest operating platform for many tablets and mobile phones is loosing its ground to Android and that is exactly where the N8 suffered. Symbian ^3 is definitely an improvement over its previous version but still lot remains to be done to make it an out and out success. Customizing three homescreens at the N8 is quite a task and it is sad to find that the widgets cannot be expanded to the entire screen.


Another disappointment in Nokia N8 mobile came in the form of its interface which is not a complete redesign from the older version. Though its full touch QWERTY keypad is one of the best offered by Nokia so far still it lags behind the iPhone’s interface. Typing in portrait mode is a tiring task though landscape comes with full QWERTY mode. Nokia N8’s default browser is another let down as compared to Safari and Opera Mini when we talk of speed and formatting.


But whatever qualms we have from Nokia N8, it is still very difficult to write off the smartphone completely, atleast for someone like me who is an ardent Nokia fan. On the sunny side, the N8 boasts of world’s strongest camera with 12 MP, Carl Zeiss and Xenon flash which makes the N8 the best camera phone ever built by Nokia or any other company for that matter.


Similarly you will be pleased with the multimedia features offered by the Nokia N8 including front facing VGA camera for conference calls and Flash Lite 4.0. The handset has HDMI output, the standout feature that allows the device to get connected to larger HD displays. The connectivity option including Wi-Fi, micro USB port, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP and 3G come as bonus. The other pros of the N8 include a strong battery life, easily removable SIM and SD cards, great build quality and huge memory of 32 GB hot swappable.
