Nokia n9 is much better than n8 . Although n8 is a good phone , it lacks its performance many time i mean the phones not the camera due to its low ram . Even though meego is a new os for mobile platform ,it withstands for heavy use and has butter smooth operation which u never find in any other nokia of course lumia is there but we r talking about symbian . Thats it from me

I have had an N8 for 2 years now and still love it! I am now going to get a 64gb N9 as I fancy a change but couldn't see a good reason to leave Nokia.

as an n8 can handle and actuali better....and the n8 now records videos at 30fps as well...

the comparison is missing the N8 camera button and Xenon flash, which gives an impressive natural look at images in low light conditions compare to standard LED flash.
