Design N8 looks elongated, with a slimmer body than other phones sailed wide. Glosy plastic-coated side of the screen, while the entire body is made of aluminum other abrasive. N8 pinned the right side volume keys, lock the screen and camera. On the left side there is a MicroSD slot (external memory), a SIM card slot and MicroUSB port (data cable, charger). And the body is placed above the On / Off, a hole 3.5 mm Jack and HDMI ports.
Like any other OS, Symbian ^ 3 also presents a homescreen (no 3) which is quite rubbed to the right / left to replace it. Homescreen each provided 6 boxes to be filled widgets or shortcuts. N8 AMOLED screen technology so it looks sharp. Touch screen is capacitive, so it is more sensitive to the touch of a finger.
The presence of an HDMI port (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is embedded in the body for connecting the N8 with TV function. What makes a video that appeared on TV looks sharp, and supports up to 720p HD resolution. Plus equipped with Dolby Digital Plus sound technology that seemed to have its own home theater. In the sales package included HDMI adapter cable. Cable and USB On The Go which allows N8 is connected and can read the USB stick.
N8 only provide HDMI adapter cable, cable TV Out to be purchased separately. Also included USB cable On The Go. To enter the main menu is provided on the menu button below the screen.

Supported complete facilities, such as Autofocus, Xenon Flash, Quality, Location, Close Up, Landscape, Sport, Night, Face Detection, Self Timer, Color Tone, White Balance, Exposure, ISO, Contrast, Sharpness and Digital Zoom. There is Video Stabilization facilities specialized for video recording. Photo Editor is also included full-facility editing. There’s also Video Editor to create video from photos and video clips pieces.
There are features of ‘Social Networking’ to bring together several social networking applications. But there is a new Facebook and Twitter apps. WebTV becomes the new features presented N8. Here can access TV channels, like CNN, National Geographic, Movie Treasures, E! and others. To be able to get another TV program broadcast, can be found in the Ovi Store.
For the music business, N8 injected Dolby Digital Plus Surround technology. The effect is the sound track sounded loud and clear. Nokia also provides Come With Music service, to be able to download the 4 million songs prepared. Music Player features the Shuffle, Repeat, Equalizer, Balance, Loudness and Stereo Widening. To change tracks simply wipe the display Album Art. FM Radio feature is also provided.
Internet access in N8 can be up to speed HSDPA (10.2 Mbps). Or via a WiFi connection. Browser that supports Flash, can open multiple sites at once. To access the features provided by email Nokia Messaging which supports various email accounts. Although the genre of entertainment, but still include some features N8 office. Like Quick Office to ‘cultivate’ Word, Excel, Power Point. But unfortunately not yet be full version. So the limited ability to open Office files.
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.
