    Default Reasons to NOT like the N8

    So far from what I watched and read about the N8, it looks like the iPhone alternative I was waiting for. HDMI, USB, gaming capabilities, excellent camera with 720p video, album covers... It's perfect so far.

    I have a 5530, which I choose due to it's small size, and the fact that the N97 is seriously overpriced. I like it, but I don't love it, due to Symbian OS.

    Anyway, from what you guys have seen so far, what didn't you like about the N8? What were you expecting?

    Post your answer in the form of negative 1) ..... 2)....

    I'll start.

    1) Menu transitions and transtion effects. There's still an annoying delay in menu transitions and the effects don't seem to have improved that much.

    What I was expecting from the N8? Exactly what it is now. I wasnt expecting anything big, since from the get go, and from the info that was released, we should have all known that this was what Symbian^3 was going to be. Its just an upgraded Symbian^1 to what it should have been in the first place.

    I don't like:
    * the timing that this phone is coming in the market: too late.
    * the interface reminds me the old S60V5.
    * I wish the screen resolution would be higher, like in Android high-end phones (800x480).

    For the rest, the phone is great.

    lol Same I heard somewhere in Youtube long ago that Symbian^3 was supposed to be a "touch-friendly" S60v5. So yea not expecting anything at all.

    And besides S60 looks and works practically for me IMO, so how much more a touch-friendly one?

    non removable battery worries me. Ok yes it can be removed by unscrewing the bottom part, but it void's warranty. Suppose you installed some bad app and it hangs, how you gonna restart it without removing battery? Hmmmm..... My only concern is this with the n8...

    is it mentioned somewhere? Because generally holding power button in symbian for 3 sec causes switch off. Is it a new symbian 3 feature??
