Nokia N8 Review (with tons of screenshots).

Gravity on N8

Want some more N8 news? There’s a huge first impressions review from ifanr.com. An important note they do make is that you shouldn’t take this as a review of the final product as (fortunately/unfortunately) we have quite some time to wait until it actually hits the shelves.

Note though, that the review is originally in chinese, so unless you’re a native speaker, be aware that the translator will confuse the meaning of certain sentences.


Some interesting highlights:

  • Battery life 1.5 days
  • Positive improvements on the UI
  • Homescreen can be filled to the brim with shortcuts. 6X4 in total. YAY.

  • Linear live multitasking window. I DISLIKE this PRE style cards. DISLIKE. But a lot of newbies might like it. Pre owners seem to. Maemo 5 and N900 has the best multitasking interface on all mobile phones and hope S^4 adopts something like that, not this painful swipy swipy nonsense.

  • Threaded SMS
  • MORE info on screensaver

  • Web browser interface has no significant changes (oh dear) but multitouch as you know, works well in it.
  • The review makes some points about the camera and HD out but the translator makes it difficult to understand what on earth is trying to be said.

    Nice scoop. I don’t see this on any other website. The phone screen shots look nice. I’m glad the UI seems to have been improved. This will probably be the wife’s next phone. I presently use an E72 so I’m waiting for a qwerty key board 😉

    I can understand the chinese

    but why they never show the virtual keyboard? Am glad that the option and back bar is moved to the bottom while in landscape mode.

    My complaint is why they dont make use of the empty space of the long bar to accommadate the toolbar icons? Option and back button can converted to icon label to save screen real estate

    What was the happiest moment of your life? The saddest?
