Video: Answer to Gizmodo's "Usability test" of the Nokia N8

| October 3, 2010 | 1,440 Replies

Gizmodo recently did a “test” of the Nokia N8, plying the N8 onto the hands of a user who has most likely never touched a symbian phone, and one that has the finger speed of an arthritic quadriplegic.

Stupidly for gizmodo, Usability is one thing the N8 is great at. It IS a usable handset. If  you cannot work the N8, you don’t deserve to be let outside on your own, let alone have a mobile phone.

On the plus side, giving the N8 to a complete stranger and STILL being able to navigate the phone pretty well is a BIG plus. Great job Gizmodo.

The Nokia N8 started shipping this week and reviews of the Finnish company’s latest flagship are spreading like wildfire. Checking out the first batch of those we noticed a certain trend, which we cannot quite explain. It seems that for some reason most of the reviewers don’t give the handset a fair chance and go a bit too far with their criticisms…

….We can go on but you should have gotten the idea by now. Just to be clear – we don’t have anything against any those sites. On the contrary, we feel like they are all pretty great and are daily reads for all of us here at GSMArena. It’s just that we feel they are not being perfectly fair on this particular occasion and the N8 is much too important to just let that slip.

Oh from that it seems Mr Eldar Murtazin is off on the RAMPAGE with his pixon 12. Don’t worry. He’s not the only one with the N8 or a pixon 12. I’m not sure if I’ll even bother discussing it to be honest. I thought this was supposed to make Symbian fans cry, but no, it makes me laugh.

GSMArena make points about that – something instantly obvious is why Eldar is shooting 9MP widescreen with N8 but 12MP on Pixon12.
