Android requires more powerful hardware and more battery power to do the same tasks that Symbian can do but with less-powerful hardware and with little battery consumption. "
That's my point.you said "Android requires more powerful hardware and more battery power ".
Basically i would have agreed if he said more efficient.
Symbian is great, but it's a dawn of the new age. it's just now a member of the pack, not the leader of it.
if you would notice, the humored next pureview is a LUMIA. So 808 seems to be just a testing ground of the technology.
I would praise Nokia if they would just concentrate on the symbian OS. i used to one and this android fanboy say symbian rocks.
The advantage that android has over symbian or any other OS is customization, you can customize it to your liking. and android leads the pack for technological advancement right now NOT because it requires hardware or more power and higher specs, it's because of the manufacturers harnessing the OS' true potential thus they innovate applications and new hardwares, had it's not symbian who forced the industry to move on to dual, quadcores, it was Android. and people say it's because android cannot run on minimal hardware specs? says who? you can run it, but it's capabilities would be limited. is that bad? yes and no. yes because you can't use it's full potential, and no...it's normal because hardware specs limits what droids can do but that does not mean, it's less efficient.

and since when did symbian became a powerhouse?
lemme tell you this. symbian was great. ... moreSince when did it become a powerhouse? Since the Nokia 7650. The first smartphone with multitasking.
There is no "compare" button for Symbian and Android. Only the phones can be compared, not the Operating Systems. Please open Wikipedia and do your research, or open some websites about what technically Symbian and Android are.
Actually, Symbian IS a powerhouse. the operating system (OS) itself is more powerful than Android. Android requires more powerful hardware and more battery power to do the same tasks that Symbian can do but with less-powerful hardware and with little battery consumption. Want proof? Look at ICS and Belle (Symbian and Android's latest OS). ICS uses battery power like there's no tomorrow (literally), because just look at complaints from users of ICS. Do you see the same complaints from Belle?
How about App compatibility? Android is already facing fragmentation problems. Search GSMArena for that article. Do you see such problems with Belle? No.
How about folders to organize all those app icons in the main menu?
And who said that Android is truly effective with multiple cores? ONLY the OS needs the multiple cores. Almost all apps were written without optimizations for multiple cores.

lemme tell you this. symbian was great. however we can't clasify it as a powerhouse. i might have agreed if you said that 808 is more efficient even w/ just a dualcore(singlecore) chipset. but a power house?
do you know the link at the top that says compare? click that from 808 and get another droid so you would see the difference...maybe open up another websites for technical terms. if your not a tech guy...you can just open up wikipedia.org that's the site kids use to do research.
slater, 09 Apr 2012i'm a constant reader on any blogsites 'bout phones especially here in gsmarena, i can say tha... moreSame here. With the reputation that Nokia built over the decades, it is a no-brainer that Nokia is the most well-known and watched-out brand.
Thousand thousands of wi-fi only tablets available this days.
It would be very helpful if nokia could added wi-fi hotspot and tethering facilities(no 3rd party appl) to all their low-end smart phones for students...... like galaxy y.
so, those tablets could easily connected to internet without area restrictions using mobile phone 2g/3g data.
i'm a constant reader on any blogsites 'bout phones especially here in gsmarena, i can say that the most commented article/reviews/news/etc is nokia... thats my observation. LOL
this mobile will be a best seller. it has the best camera in the world and also the best OS ever (suck android fans). the only problem is the heavyweight (169g). maybe I'll buy N8 for half the price. or should I buy an old (but not used) iphone 3GS for the same price of N8? I have an E63 (great phone and poor camera).
its just u drea u dont know how to check the features clearly the 808 is a power house try to compare the features of 808 to ur puny android that just has more theme effects too bad
gagatov, 09 Apr 2012Wow, the camera specifications look just brilliant. I am curious when should we expect the int... morewhat are you talking about?
the lense on the 808 is bigger than what you get on standard point and shoot cameras,
the sensor is way bigger than n8,
and standard point and shoot cameras,
even a cheap DSLR...
hi guys. can somebody tell me why this phone and many other high end unlocked phones still lacking 4G capabilities? whats the use? i own nokia c6-01 on att network and regular internet it is ok. but when it comes to watch videos they pause a lot specially youtube. (NOTE) I'M TALKING WHEN TETHERING ON MY LAPTOP,WHEN USING PHONE BY IT SELF EVERYTHING RUNS GOOD EVEN VIDEOS. if it was a 4G phone would i notice any difference when tethering? any advice or comment? thanks.
well its like the N8 was an awesome phone. let down by the OS. the cpu speed. and well a few other things. but as a camera phone. best on the market.
as will this be. but just a shame its not a windows phone. but the phone was developed a few years ago. so its was in symbian times hence. symbian on it. shame but true.
