Congrates Samsung!!! Really appreciate their work. Nokia deserved this failure because they failed to react to the market needs.
Though im a Nokia lumia user but to be honest i appreciate samaung products as im xuser of samaung phones. But my only advice to samsung is "please make ur antenna's reception stronger,Nokia has best reception till date n sammy phones show no network where nokians manage to show 15% network strength.
If samaung does that then ill be happy to use it

My N73 was dropped on hard floor, tarmac almost 25 times courtesy my son as he grew to his seven years. It even got waterlogged once. One speaker replacement after one such drop and one more visit to Nokia care for cleaning it after waterlogging did the trick and I enjoyed it for years afterwards. I changed its joystick (flex ribbon) once myself when I was in US last year, pretty easy it was. Nokia are best phones considering my experience. This stop gap 603 also amazes me. A simple way to change phone that copied all my data from N73 onto 603 did it in minutes without backup and restore. 603 seems to have bang for buck at its price point.

> In reply to Tarek @ 2012-04-27 12:55 from xL}F - click to readProblem with symbian ^1 onward was the devices it came in... while you had an Android 600Mhz CPU with Adreno 200 and at least 256MB RAM on a touch device, Nokia had a 400Mhz CPU (or less), no GPU, 128MB RAM ... for twice or more the price.

I mean, screen and GPS are usually great on Nokia's, but these days, build quality is far from the legendary 3310 and efficiency on software level cannot deal with the fact that you are paying a lot more for a lot less.

Symbian is probably the most versatile and efficient mobile OS, just, bloated and used on obsolete and quite low end hardware.

RIP Nokia :/

samsung just like nokia .. always come out with to much of series... with small diffrent attach in every series. thats why samsung had higher sales.. if other brands use the same strategy it will be the same result.. number one in sales does not means it come with genuine high quality with that..
