At the present moment there is no other cellphone with a camera that as sensor this size...it's about the size of the sensor on the Canon S90. I was super enthusiastic about buying it....but then I've started reading the reviews regarding the N8's performance as a cell phone...it appears that although it's not a bad cellphone it cannot really compete with the likes of the Iphone, HTC Desire, Samsung Galaxy and so on. I've downloaded some photo samples and I was VERY surprise with the high quality. You can easily use this phone as a compact camera...but I don't want a phone that is good with pictures and bad with everything else. On the other hand all the other high end phones are very good as smartphones but cannot really compete with the N8 picture wise (dynamic range, high iso, shutte lag). Does anyone actually have this cellphone here? Please share your thoughts.
