There have been many reports that Skype is providing the Nokia N8 users with issues since the beginning of the arrival of the Nokia N8, either a feature is missing or the video function is giving problems or complaints of the quality. The good advantage of apps is that there is always an alternative to what you want to do that can’t do with the other.
Although some users prefer Fring, you can always turn to the default app that should not give the users problems. If the case may be that you are calling from Vodacom to Vodacom then the charged prices are the same as your current voice plan but if you are making a call to MTN from Vodacom then a flat rate is charged depending on your current voice plan – to get the prices of what is going to be charged then refer to your service provider.
To make a video call with the default Nokia N8, go to the contact you wish to communicate with, you will see “video call” and the number beneath it – click it to initiate the call.
If the recipient doesn’t wish to use video then you will only receive the voice and will be shown either an image or a blank screen.
Is Skype, Fring or the default app better? What do you use?
