Video: Nokia N8 Speaker Test

Around a month to go for the rumoured Nokia N8 August 25th release. You’ve waited ever so patiently (since end of Not June, Not May, but APRIL!)

Here’s yet another Nokia N8 video, but this time “testing” out the N8’s loudspeaker – which is possibly louder even than the very loud 5800. (Would be nice to have some comparisons to better gauge the speakers against something else)

You’ll want to hit 720p for better audio quality, although we are limited by the camera’s recording of the sound and your speakers/headphones’ reproduction of that sound.

Something I noticed in another Nokia N8 hands on (was up minutes ago but now removed)

When scrolling (e.g. contacts/music player/volume) you can’t just tap a position on the scroll bar and instantly be there (e.g. like in video/music player). You have to drag the scroll bar to that position. Does this really need pointing out?

Also what’s with the 4th Quarter release? Many places have already mentioned October (4Q) N8 was supposed to be out 3rd Quarter, of which September is the very end of it. Hmmm…

      OK, I tell you release is not going to be until Summer 2011. That’s almost a year away!!! I can’t believe it – how could they do this! That’s it I’m getting an iPhone 4, crap antenna or not!

      So – did you believe me? Hopefully not. Only believe official statements. 🙂

    Thanks for posting this but to be quite honest I don’t think it’s really possible to get an accurate impression of the speaker until we actually use the N8 in person. As you say whatever the N8 speaker puts out it’s then subject to recording by the camera, then encoding into the video, then playback via our PCs. So it could be crap and sound good, or good and sound crap. I think we’d need to hear some phones with rubbish or average audio playback in the same video to be able to make a comparison.

    Also I disagree with this guy, unless we have an official statement otherwise, release will be in 3rd quarter.

      Still here John… It just occurred to me that your are in fact talking about happiness, not homosexuality. So what you are actually saying (albeit with very poor writing skills) is:

      “nokia happiness !! guys guys ALARM check how happy the level fader moves.. HAHA FAIL and TRASH etc. this fader movement lags totally … comon Nokia STOP BEEING SO HAPPY AND STOP PRODUCING HAPPY PHONES FOR PEOPLE WEARING PINK HOTPANTS !!!”

      What I don’t understand is why one should not be happy? Isn’t happiness a god thing? I’d rather be happy than miserable. I bet people at Nokia would too. just because you want to be unhappy doesn’t mean that other people want to – let alone should – be as well. Quite the opposite.

    The speakers are surprisingly good! But not as loud and clear and 5800. These speakers sound kinda noisy when at max volume. While 5800 is clear even at the max volume. But I find this good enough so thumbs up Nokia!

    Speaker sounds good to me. As for the release date I do not have any sources or anything but I think the N8 is delayed I have this funny feeling about it being delayed

    Nokia N8 is scheduled to be launched on around 25th of Aug. Later on that day itself, the majority of so-called ‘Nokia’s Haters’, will soon be impressed by the amazing-functionality of the new Nokia’s first Symbian 3^ device featuring a great 12-megapixel camera and a seamless audio quality. Moreover, they will admire to the new innovative platform which is the HDMI, flash4.0 support, USB on-the-go, and 3D-enabled game which brings games to the next level. So, dear Nokia’s haters, please think thrice before making an unnecessary and insulting comment.

    Im a great fan of NOKIA.I just love Nokia for the technology they are using in their mobiles and it is for all Nokia’s Haters,as Mujtaba said.The upcoming mobiles from Nokia are not just mobiles,they are fully featured mini Laptops.No other brand in the market is providing so many features in a single package.Nokia understands the need of its customers and working on the same progressively.The upcoming Nokia N8 is a great joy for me.if there is a brand in the market providing a mobile with 1GHz processor and nokia still providing 400Mhz processor,,then it doesn’t means that Nokia’s technology is not up to date.having a good processor or any other specific part inside a mobile is not enough for making a high end device.Nokia always make a balanced package having a good processor not consuming lot of battery and still admirable.All the best Nokia.
