> In reply to Tom-Helge @ 2010-05-18 19:10 from SrdG - click to readStronger CPU --- with power hugry OS = not efficient

PRO - light OS (resource consumption) + good GPU = N8 - Good

N8 = AMOLED screen = low power consumption + bl-4D = good performance = EFFICIENCY

get it? or how can it be expressed simpelr. IF U CAN'T get this, STOP posting, or post on other forum, like IPhone where high IQ is not required

> In reply to loooop @ 2010-05-18 18:33 from pwD0 - click to readloooop, you are wrong about something here.

Yes X10 have 1 GB internal memory, but the phone comes with 8 GB microSD card. So when you take away what the OS use of the internal memory of the X10, then you have 8.5 GB with space on the phone. Not ot bad.

Yes, X10 have much more powerfull CPU that use more power. But X10 have a more powerfull battery than the N8 though.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 was delivered with FM RDS Radio. The radio is called MW600.

The X10 doesn't have internal radio i think. Someone says it have it, but because of Android 1.6, it doesn't have it. I might be wrong here, so correct me if i'm wrong here.

It seems that Nokia has stopped thinking on concrete terms. Nokia E63 which has a tiny 2.36 inches screen and below USD 150 price has a 1500 mAh battery and this N8 which has a huge 3.5 inch battery a double speed processor with graphic accelerator comes with 1200 mAh battery. Where are the brains?

Yes I do understand that A8 @ 600 is faster than ARM 11 @ 680. The point was that the GPU does much in S^3 UI, that you did not mention the GPU (again) and that it is the combination of multiple things that define speed, and the S^3, ARM11 & Broadcom GPU could very well lead to a snappier experience than Android on Snapdragon. Just looking at the CPU is pointless.

I for one am happy they do not use Android, as I think it is a terrible idea in the long run to have google own the os, even if it is "free".

Then, Nokia is not shooting for the poorer people, they are using what they are good at now, to make space for high end devices coming. You see, this N8 is really an incredible package for the price. This will hurt the competition. This does not compete with Iphone or X10. Nokia is planning to do this with MeeGo.

Anyway, i only responded to point out the CPU GPU OS combination point. Rgds.

Mark, do you know that an ARM Cortex 600 MHz CPU is more powerfull than an ARM 11 680 MHz CPU by quite alot?.

Why do you think i said N8 should have had an ARM Cortex CPU instead?. I wasn't comparing MHz speeds at all here. I was just comparing how powerfull reach of the CPU's are after how their architecture is builded up on.

So like i said, if this phone had been any high spec, it would need to have an ARM Cortex 600 MHz at least.

Well yeah, Symbian runs good on lower specs phones, but still. Symbian as a future OS isn't looking good tbh. Android seems to be the future.

If this phone have had 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, 480x800 resolution on the screen as minimum with Android 2.1 / 2.2. Then this phone would be a monster phone.

But i know Nokia is aiming for more of the cheaper crowds, so you can't expect as much out of the phones from Nokias as you can do with other brands.

You kept saying "my" X10. This is better known as buyer's remorse. You out have spent ur life savings on that phone and the jealousy insided forces you to say bad things about this phone. All just to make urself feel better that you bought the "best" phone. Whether it is or not, it doesn't matter! Grow the hell up. It shouldn't upset you that people in this world might have a better stupid phone than you! Good day sir

You do not seem to be the smartest chap around here. Funny thing is, you talk as if you are very knowledgeable about processors etc, when it is clear you are not. You see, just going by processor speed is simply Stupid. Yes, I said that. Stupid. Not only does Symbian have much less hardware requirements than Android (since it is not a VM) and is a much more nimble. Aside from that, the UI in S^3 is hardware accelerated (Android is not, which is another reason it needs a snapdragon, which also brings terrible battery life) , why do you not include the GPU in your analysis? The one in the N8 is pretty good, as far as I know the Snapdragon one is...nonexistent? It is ironic, that you compare all these things like CPU, RAM, etc, then wield them like they are weapons in a fight, when they are actually necessary evil, necessary to make Android run smooth, killing your battery while doing so. What is good about that? That is just as stupid as a megapixel race.

Listen, I am not against the X10, I like the device, just not the OS or the rubber. I like the N8's design better, its camera, the brand (personal) its made of aluminum which I like as well, etc etc. I just think the discussion here is very shallow, and resembles bickering between opposing football fans more than furthering understanding.

Why?
