Guys plz,stop that android-symbian fan war,its something relative,symbian is the best choice for me,becuase
1.there are no java handlers on android:which means there is no free internet browsing
2.i know that android is such an open source for developers ,but u cant compare the number of the apps of nokia to android
3.u cant hack ur android phone,which means:no cooked softwares,no 12month log,no camera silencing,no faster gallery,no better camera quality
4.in middle east nokia is the absolute best choice,every two meters there is a nokia center
5.i know that android is a way better than symbian but after 5 years i will think of it becuase i dont want a very strong os without the specs. Above
6.also u should compare maemo/meago with android os,thats gonna b fare
Android 3 is slated to release b4 the yr end .... symbian 3 and android 3 are both updated versions and more importantly will (atleast initially) exist in handsets in the same price range
Ppl using smartphones for the first time should try out android ... But ppl used to symbian should think twice b4 using android ....i had quite a lot of trouble getting used to spica myself ...
Well, untill there's a capable android below the higher mid range ... symbian is the best u'll get in this price range.... and if symbian 3 trickles down to this range ... there'd be nothing like it ;)
Hello everyone. I was wondering about how to get one if i'm living in USA. I jost immigrated to here, and I really want the phone. I'm afraid of all these online orders because you don't really know what you're paying for. Can anyone help me out? What I'd really appreciate is your reply to my email Anvar_orlean@mail.ru, please, if it is ok with you, you could not even imagine how much help would that be. Thans again.
Nitish, 21 Aug 2010When we said symbian is StRoNgEr or more PoWeRfUl ... we didnt mean protection against viruses... moreHey pal, why can't we compare android 2.2 with symbian 3??? We compare things in the current state. Android 2.2 has released for sometimes and symbian 3 is gonna release very soon. So it's normal we'll compare s^3 and android 2.2. It's not true that we don't know much about it. Symbian 3'll b open source Os like android. So it's obvious that s^3'll have more apps available like android......... I'm not protesting against android. People have their own choice. And people always relay on the thing that can depend on. We r using symbian for a long time and we depend on it totally..........
im sick of ppl here.did google pay u 2say those things?how much?u guys keep talkin like android phones r da best in da planet.diz is c6 forum.just go bring ur a*ses 2android forum if u want 2talk bout dat...

total = buy it :D great the best
it's like cheaper n97 haha
i really love this phone nice specification with everything just going to buy soon INshallah
this has become symbian v/s android blog. android users go to your phone's blog. discuss here about c6 only ppl.
When we said symbian is StRoNgEr or more PoWeRfUl ... we didnt mean protection against viruses ...but the ability to run computational heavy, high fps etc programmes....N first of all its virtually impossible to "hack" a cellphone unlike computers .... plz dont make claims about things you dont kno about ....if u mean viruses ... well till date there are only a couple viruses 4 android platform while there are plenty of them 4 symbian
Sure android needs higher hardware support than symbian ....but like i said b4 android has proportionally high abilities too
What makes you think aligning htc sence, touchwiz etc on androids is tuffer than symbian ??? you tried doing that or something ???? :P
what do u mean by Upgration & Updation of UI ??? if thats firmware updated ... there's no difference for the same in androids and symbians .... if u mean os ugradation ...Well how can you comment about that till there's a update for symbian rel.5 devices to symbian 3 ???
I agree that android WiLL face competition frm meego, maemo and symbian 3 but these oses will compete with Android 3......Android 2.2 will only compete with symbian rel.5 n its beats it by large
Plz chek ur data .... e5 is the only 1 with 256mb ram ... others have 128mb or less .... and well plz mention what "newly released" phones have 256mb rams ... plz dont talk about n8 cuz androids in the same range offer 1ghz processors and 512mb ram ....
+ as long as 600mhz processors are concerned we've seen models like spica with 800mhz processors perform worse than 1s with 600mhz due to lack of ram ... so ram matters a lot
Android 2.2 HAS flash 10.1 ..... like i said b4 .... when people think android ... the think of android 1.6 or so .....android 2.2 is a lot better than its predecessors
As long as symbian 3 is concerned ... we really dont kno much about it yet.... plz dont jugde OSes solely on their UI .... and there's no surety that even the models that run symbian rel.5 well will be getting symbian 3
for me.. it a nice phone.. my friend just take one.. my opinion.. this phone look eligent and easy to use.. talk about camera.. have a nice picture becauce this phone use 5 megapixel camera..
My guess is there are still more apps for the symbian os than android. When any website tells you symbian has few apps, they refer to the number of signed and registered apps on in stores. A vast majority of symbian apps are not signed. The problem is not difficulty of coding but rather difficulty in registering and signing apps. That problem has been fixed by nokia with their new policies.
Another problem is profitability. Organisations like binpda who specialize in cracking paid apps have driven away lots of potential developers.
The symbian i know has no tough limitations. Android on the other hand is full of em. Apps don't even support multi res. I can still remember a game i had on my 6630 (s60v2 res 176x208) 6 years back. Duke nuken 3d. When i got my n95 8gb (240x320 s60v3), i installed the game, the exact same file on it and it actually worked. It even worked in landscape!

As we all know google had released androids code a long time ago. Like linux ubunto we can modifie android as we like. But with symbian we can't do it. I'm not a programmer but my cousin is. I've seen him working on both the platform. The interesting matter is it's very hard for the symbian apps to make it support all type of phones. But with android it's not that hard........
