It only took 1 second to generate images. The grasp of the camera when recording is also fast (25 fps). Problem Internet access, better use of WiFi access in order to watch TV shows on WebTV more smoothly. For the purposes of office, Quick Office feature supports Microsoft Office 2007.



Performance of the Symbian ^ 3 in activating various features considered too fast and responsive. Unfortunately from the side view looks less animated user interface, and no different from previous Symbian series. Armed with powerful 1200 mAh battery, the Nokia N8 can survive as long: 50 to play a song, 6 hours to watch HD video, 3.5 hours of video recording and 2.5 hours of video calls.
