sorry, i am using N8 since christmas day and i have after everyday use scratch on the screen (and don't know how could it happen because i wear no coins in same pocket as my mobile phone) and on back, right next to flash,has made ugly white spot on orange metal surface.

i am angry about it, since the phone costs lot of money, it's brand new and looks like my nokia 5800 after 2 years of use..

so, shall I make a complaint to the seller and ask for new cell phone? or get it fixed?

i can post some photos as i get home, if you want.

I scratched my N8 yesterday as a demo for a friend. I used my car keys, and exerted moderate pressure.

There are no obvious scratches that I can see. The phone withstood the test perfectly.

I dont know why anyone would do such a thing to N8 Angry
I love my N8 Grin Tongue,i love it very much and on any cost i would try to keep it safe rather scratching/throwing etc with it
Please dont do such a thing to a beautiful phone like this
See what i did to my N8 Wink Wink
Technically you can call it Lamination
It took me quite some time and i know it makes my N8 lose its beauty but i think its worth it

tbh i'd rather have a phone with a million scratches than an intact one covered in plastic - to hell with the resale value

also, i'd be inclined to think that any amount of force that's going to scratch the n8, will not be stopped by a plastic sheet...

I guess the lesson to learn here is to know the difference between SCRATCH-PROOF and SCRATCH-RESISTANT. As far as I know, nothing, absolutely nothing is scratch proof, you take a pure diamond and scratch it with another diamond and you'll get a scratch , that' how they cut diamonds, with other diamonds haha.
I sometimes work with anodized aluminium and yes it has a hard surface but we are talking here about a very thin layer, apply enough pressure and the soft aluminium underneath will start to give way and the the hard surface would brake and that's how you scratch your scratch-resistant N8.
And the glass isn't scratch-proof either, sure coins and keys and not so sharp knives it may handle but you take a piece of granit with a sharp edge and you can draw pictures on that glass and it will probably brake because it's toughened.

The 5800 had the annoying elevated rimming that made it difficult to tap the sides of the display but also protected the display. The camera also had a slightly elevated metallic rimming as well.

The 5800 has a sturdier form (shape) than the N8 so it's not surprising It may fare better in certain circumstances. The N8 is made with sturdier materials, of course.



Overall, I don't think Nokia will make another 5800 sturdy form based phone, though, because it proved unpopular and aesthetically unappealing.

you think i did it for Resale value Huh Undecided
No my friend not at all Tongue
and also when i did this i never though its going to protect my phone from breaking/dents if it would fall from my hands/somewhere
I did it because i saw a few N8's whose colour just below the speaker got dull after a few days,now i am not really sure why that happend but i definetly didnt wanted my N8 to be like that
And also i saw a few phones with  scratches in the sides which i didnt like at all
And i am also not saying that this is going to protect my phone forever
But least i will be satisfied that i did the best i could to keep it preserved as i wanted it to be Wink Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
And yes i love my phone so much that i cannot withstand to see a scratch on it Grin Grin

Dont you think a silicone cover would be more practical and more effective?
Got one for mine just that I could get a better grip on the phone.
The aluminium cover is slippery and almost dropped it many time bc of that.

wth laminated n8??? you just ruined your n8 mate. Nokia intended to make its phones with 'Casings' to protect it. Thats the purpose of casings/outer shell.

you can buy an n8 but you cant buy a leather protective case or even a silicone 3rd party one?..

I can definetly buy leather protective/silicone case rather i actually did try those on my phone, Silicon covers up my phone but the rubber like nature of the cover makes it hard for me to keep/take it out form my pocket and also i wasnt able to access the menu button properly and had to press it quite hard to get into the menu which otherwise without the cover is very easy and Personally i dont like leather cases as they make any phone look bulkier than they actually are and i hate the flip-flop option that they have
Thus lamination is the best thing out there for me to make it look sleek and shinier and much handy than leather/silicon casing
I did the same thing to my N97 and i loved it
and i am loving it more on my N8
