After thorough research in internet i have decided to buy Nokia N8 as my new smart phone. But when i fixed my mind & just about to buy suddenly i found some websites where existing N8 users complaining about this device. Many of them said that the phone automatically restart several times a day, some times it hangs,touch screen does not respond well etc. Many of them even said that - F**K this device and its owner too. I'm very much afraid as it is cost about 22000 INR in India - its not a matter of joke for me. So please suggest me is it worth investing in Nokia N8? I'm Waiting for kind reply.

I have my N8 since october 2010 without any kind of problem, anyway buying a phone is a very personal decision and depends of the use that youŽll give to it. If you like photography for instance, the N8 is the best.

Phones are a lot of personal preference-this phone, like any other, will have some defective products-any electronics, even the best, have anywhere between a 3-5% failure rate out of the factory. its just a fact of life, thats why you keep the warranty and the receipt. Keep in mind also, if at a 5% failure rate, if the company sells 500,000 phones, your still looking at say, 3000 bad ones if the company is lucky. Add into that, that most people don't leave reviews, and a good portion of the ones that do, are the ones who got a bad phone and are really mad about it and just wanting to vent. I wouldn't let a few bad customer reviews sway your decision.
