Only two rows? That is very disappointing. With three home screens on S^3, I would like to configure mostly widgets in the first home screen with maybe one row of shortcuts. My second home screen will probably be practically all shortcuts (5/6) and the last may be my contacts. Only allowing 2 rows of shortcuts seem impractically limiting.

Having said that, there is not a lot of difference in response with it removed. Certainly better than the N97 screen.
Thanks for response Ironass

Sorry I was not specific - I understood that you meant the protective cover I usually use a screen protector on my phones - I am considering upgrading to a N8 and was wondering if the screen will still work with a protector.

Thanks

Er... Seemed like a good idea at the time!

Did I miss the N8 forum?

You can move me if you want kontraband and I will sit on the "naughty step" for 15 min's.

(I still cannot find the N8 forum on here. Must start taking more water with it)

Thank goodness for that... I really thought I'd lost the plot!

(not for the first time I hasten to add)

No Christmas drink for you this year kontraband.

Some screenies of the N8 showing the "new" UI on Symbian^3.
This is using the "Midnight Silver" theme that came, with 3 other Midnight variations, as a System Update when I received the handset!
There are now 9 themes on the N8.

I have a question ironass. Do you have the option to take widescreen photographs with your N8? Even if it takes a normal 12MP photograph and crops it to 16:9 ratio?

Yet more screen shots.

Strange that in Gallery in landscape mode the photo's scroll up and down and not side to side as I would have expected/liked.

Just gone through all the camera settings and there doesn't appear to be. There is a Scene Mode called "User defined" but this is to set up your own combination of Portrait/Landscape - Flash - White balance, etc.,etc.

Forgot to mention that on most menu's there is a "Show open applications" option that allows a preview so that you can close applications down. See screenie.

Installed Handy Taskman to show free RAM and phone and Mass memories (no memory card installed).

As you can see, the N8 has about 3 times the available RAM of the N97.

However, I must say, that I am experiencing lags and freezes on the N8. This is not the smooth experience I was hoping for.
