My 2 cents on this phone:
Camera specs are awesome, nothing comes even close. I like the fact that it comes with symbian(yes, I'm a symbian fan, but not a fanboy).
Dont really understand why people keep bashing this phone calling it a marketing gimmick, its a solid phone with a decent OS and nice specs. Symbian might be dated and on its way out, but it still has some fight left on it. Specswise you cant compare symbian with android, they are too different. Symbian doesnt really need dual cores and tons of ram to run smoothly(Tested the latest leaked firmware on my N8, made it run even smoother). Android needs the cores, it needs the ram, and has a lot of apps and cool customizations in its favor. In the end, its all about getting the phone you want and feel good with, doesnt matter if it's symbian, android or whatever.
I thought that my next phone would be an android, but after seeing this phone(I'm all about the pics)i guess android can wait.
no matter which e ever game 2d ,3d ,4d ,almost anyone would like to play on pc .matured people just like to play simple gamess on smartph ,thats why angrybirds was success.

i did not go to any specifics because am not bashing.
but since you want to...let me ask ... moreDude, Symbian applications might be obsolete, but are very useful and make sense.
I have an s60v3fp1 and it has hd games like brothers in arms, asphalt 6 etc. I was also amazed that it can run the game "seven days" without a problem, now thats a real 70mb game.
I am browsing using opera browser or other browsers without any problem.
I can play online MMORPG called anrufen without draining the battery so fast.
I am connected to the internet free of charge.
I can get all applications i want free.(i have a hacked s60v3)
I have free navigation, free music damn, what else should i include....
These are just some reasons why we stick to symbian...
Its a real open source OS.
Zyde, 09 Apr 2012Yes! Come on! I waiting so long! Want this camera beast! Woah! Hold your horses! lol!
We might expect this to come out by month's end. Hope Nokia doesn't pull another "delay stunt" with this one. They said May. Hopefully before May. :)

Search for this: pureview lite
PureView was specifically made for Symbian. Do you know that Nokia is now hiring people to work on the PureView technology for Lumia? They are creating another type of PureView that is similar to the ones in the N8 and 808.
Why do you need more powerful hardware for Android to function more effectively? Because it is POORLY optimized.
Like I said, to perform the SAME TASK, you need high-end hardware for Android to perform as well as how Symbian performs with low-end hardware?
You want proof?
Samsung Galaxy S2? What do you think is the main reason why they used a dual-core processor? 1080p video recording/playback. Sure, the GPU helps a lot, but without a dual-core processor, SGS2 will have a very hard time dealing with 1080p videos. Now look at the 808. 1080p video encoding/decoding with a GPU and a single core CPU. Sure, another chip helps with the encoding, but how about decoding? And this happens with a SINGLE CORE 1.3GHz processor VS a DUAL CORE 1.2GHz processor.

Only shows your level of intellect: LOW.
You only paid attention to that one, and you understood it wrongly. Just my opinion? Nope. Try both for yourself.
Customization? Really? Symbian offers more customization options than Android.
I mentioned other points. You didn't dare answer them? What does that say about yourself? You don't know what you are saying. :)
[deleted post]k, got your point. so you're a fandroid w/ symbian rocks mind?
symbian with astonishing performance and astounding features was just hidden under the androids greatness with its childish names but with rubbish features. agree?
Verbal_Criminal, 09 Apr 2012jeez...you don't really read right?aw.. can you read too? android is loosing dude.. open 8 apps for android, in less than a minute, it will restart.. open 8 apps for symbian, still works good.. tsk3x.. the shame....
Verbal_Criminal, 09 Apr 2012 i did not go to any specifics because am not bashing. but since you want to...let me ask ... moreaw, come on.. you can find a lot of 3D games only with one app market for Nokia(OVI store) while having difficulty finding such 3D games for 2 app market like Android Market and Samsung Apps, and some of these games from OVI store cost more cheaper than Android's( for ex.: Asphalt 6 HD game, OVI store: $1 or less; Android Market: $ 4 or more. does android have the TV-out function that can use any TV-out chord? i guess not. USB on-the-go function? HDMI function? i guess not too.. Browsing Issues? that only depends on the network or WLAN structure speed. Price? phht!! android is more expensive than symbian with more features. tsk3x. you're just posting comments under symbian phones because you're beginning to lose hope that Android is still winning over symbian.. grow up and take out that pacifier from your mouth dude..

i did not go to any specifics because am not bashing.
but since you want to...let me ask you this...
what are the games you can play on symbian that has 3D graphics?
Compare the applications you can use in symbian
to the applications available in android.
symbian applications are basically obselete
Browsing speed? hell...from your comment
you even haven't got the chance to compare
symbian browsing experience to the android ones.
read this kid if you know what you are defending.
for speed? do you really need to metion that?
come now...give me a benchmarking info
on SYmbian vs. Android from a credible site?
Try convincing me and other
possible buyers reading right now.
you can come up w/ it, then your not worth noticing
on any post.

Fortunately I had my Nokia S60V3FP1 device with Foursquare. Took a picture, checked in. My friends located me in an instant.

Symbian created the most complete user experience without compromising one important factor of being smart, Efficiency.
I agree and understand that Android needs to have multiple core processors plus a more powerful GPU to unleash its true potential. Yet the advantage you said about android was just OS customization, you have not included faster gaming, faster browsing, etc. And the most important is faster battery life plus a faster Phone upgrade because the OS upgrades require a Faster CPU and GPU and a HIGHER DPI. In conclusion, Milk drains faster, Money depletes faster, your Life goes faster, you'll die faster. LOL. Just like the fate of android. All about being fast.
Unlike symbian, even a 4 year old s60v3 can still compete with android phone these days. Not to mention, it also has a true OS customization. May also be the first to have os customization.
