1. Slow web browser
Many users reported poor Internet experience when using the default Nokia N8 browser. The browser is too laggy, it randomly crashes, it's not that fast on 3G.
You can install an alternative browser like Opera. It's fast and easy to use, it has great multi-tab support.
2. Slow Screen
The screen is slow, not receptive. This problem can happen because of various problems. Symbian is not the best OS to have installed on your smartphone, so you can expect problems like this.
Try to close any background programs you might have running, try to restart the phone from time to time, try to uninstall unnecesarry programs. Sometimes, having an antivirus installed can make your smartphone run slowly. Disable wallpapers and theme animations.
3. N8 freezes
N8 freezes and there is nothing you can do to about it. This can happen because of low memory or too many programs installed.
Try to free up some space on main memory (c:), do not use too many programs at the same time. If the phone is stuck, you need to perform a hard reset: press the power button for 8 seconds until you feel 3 vibrations. It will restart then.
4. Poor battery life
The battery drains too fast. As I said, this can happen because of too many programs running at the same time in the background. Compared to other smartphones, Nokia N8 do not have sleep for background apps. They are always on. Other problem for poor battery experience is the 3G connection, especially if you have the "Whatsapp" app installed.
You should try to disconnect the 3G connection if you're not using it. Restart the phone. Some background apps could be running. Disable the antivirus. Set the display light to medium. Set a rare email update. From my experience, N8 has better battery performance than iPhone. So if it's draining to fast, you need to perform these fixes.
5. Slow GPS
The GPS takes forver to connect, it's slow and sometimes the GPS app crashes.
I noticed the same problem on my N8. Unfortunately, there is no actual fix for it. The GPS on Nokia N8 is slow, and there is nothing you can do about it.
