7 October 2012
Summary: hello, i bought a Nokia N series N8 from eBay at$259 but within a week my phone got dead, it didn't support charging. I returned the mobile for exchange but it is almost a month that i could not get my mobile back. i liked the phone but it didn't work for me. i recommend to use this mobile but be careful about the item because when i checked the battery of the mobile it looks old battery with new phone.
Summary: "worst phone ever i used till date ... other than the camera and hdmi .. its a peice of shit ...dead slow .. touch really sucks .. many times hanged up and i had to unscrew and remove the battery to reset .. afte this i used android and felt far better than n8 i strongly recommend only if you use camera much prefer this .. other than that it really not worth .... i got irritated so many times using this phone ..
Pros: pain pain pain- The screen blinks, apps are pathetic, navigation doesn't work - lucky if it works. i found frnds in nokia care with similar complaints, once u disconnect call the screen gets blind - found similar frnds with same issue.
Cons: The screen blinks, apps are pathetic, common prob's - navigation doesn't work - lucky if it works,once u disconnect call the screen gets blind . i found frnds in nokia care wit similar issues. Front desk treat as begger
Excerpt: I really envy reading the reviews of users as stated above. I perhaps selected an N8 unit which has a factory defect either on hardware or software because with a less than 3 months of using my N8 unit, it was already sent to Manila service Center twice by the local Davao Nokia service center due to total blackout problem.
Summary: What I dislike is that it died right out of the box after charging for a couple of hours started using it and occasionally just powers down by itself. Useable but several times powered off. Next morning after a full night on charge will not start. Nokia service could not fix the phone ! After more that a month I still do not have a phone. They say that I will be emailed before they send it out and they have already escalated the case.
