This is an outstanding phone at that price, and to see the reviews from people who have bought them on CarephoneWarehouse obviously well liked. Firmware updates to improve the browser are expected in April.

Although it has an amazing camera with a proper flash, the camera does bulge out a bit at the back.

Anyway, this is a fantastic price, even considering paying £20 for an unlock code it is still far cheaper than anywhere else.

I'm sorry I don't understand the relavence of your comment in relation to the posted deal. Would you care to elaborate.

techradar.com verdict:

Verdict
The Nokia N8 is a tricky one to judge: it's a phone that will do very well with the Nokia fans, as it's easily the best Symbian device ever made, and those that have bought similar handsets will be delighted that nearly all of the foibles from the older S60 are gone.
But for the smartphone user that's coming to the end of their first Android or iPhone and thinking of a change, it may be less of a joyful experience. The lag on the home screen jars and if you're running too many things in the background the Nokia N8 can struggle to open menus or shut down apps.
There's no doubting this is an industry-leading camera experience, although manufacturers are concentrating less on megapixels these days and more on making good enough sensors more functional.
The hefty-looking shape may put some people off as well, with the ridge at the back adding depth to an otherwise fairly slim device.
The Nokia N8 is a good smartphone, a very good smartphone - but it feels like a well-optimised touchscreen version of older handsets rather than the superphone reboot Nokia needs.

The headline tech specs are wildly impressive: a 12MP camera with Xenon flash, HD video recording with superior sounds, USB on the go, HDMI output with 5.1 support as well as a glossy OLED screen are all really worth taking a look at as they all do what they say on the tin.
But we'd bet a majority of users won't use most of these functions to their fullest on a regular basis, and would rather have a user experience than delights rather than one that's just reliable and functional.
In short, if you're a Symbian fan who loves the look of the high end specs on offer here and really feels like they could get the full use out of Symbian^3 and its excellent set of drivers and supported functions, and aren't that bothered with the speed of the UI, you'll love the Nokia N8 like it was your first born child, as it's the best Nokia device by a street at the moment.
But if you prioritise things like a speedy home screen UI, simple photo uploads to Facebook and Twitter and a top-notch internet experience over high power games and a top-end camera (as many smartphone users do these days) then make sure you have a good play with the Nokia N8 before locking yourself in for two years.

This review reads to be a balance but back handed indosement of the phone as being a great decive while warning readers that setting for good enough is actully ok by choosing style over substance, in this case the Nokia N8 being substance.
My point is of all the leading flagship smart phones the N8 at this price is anyone's best choice. Nokia's familiar user interface will be easy to use for most people but will feel unstimulating to anyone wanting to move from HTC or iPhone. That aside one can't help look at the price and wonder if it's not worth having a go.
Best camera-phone by a mile imagine take supurb night shots using your phone N8 check. One unsung hero function is the ability to read and edit Office 2010 (word, execel documents), read only on power piont documents the comes as standard preinstalled Quick Office appication in the office folder. I do recognise that not everyone will use nor find the functionality on a Nokia device a deal breaker but at this price of £275 you are getting a lot of bang for your buck as they say. Might I add it's pay as you go so no monthly contract for it to be a useful experience get a sim-only pay monthy contract with Tesco Mobile bundled with a data plan.

A continual programme of improvements to the browser and user experience are promised over the next 12 months or so through firmware updates.

it is as good as a free 58 inch tv thats all i say





there are some really good third party apps in the Nokia Ovi Store; Opera Mobile is a huge improvement over the current built-in browser, the Quickoffice editor is free for the N8 and there are many games available on par with iOS and Android, for example, Tank Hero and Angry Birds

even with the news of Nokia switching to Windows Phone OS in future, the N8 is still a viable and feature packed phone for many folks to consider, it has the best camera in a phone, HDMI and USB on the go, 16gb mass memory and micro sd support
