zo, 10 Sep 2011whao... cool down..n i must say u got some guts coming here n downgrading one of the most powe... moreMy first ques is:
Have you used N8. I agree with the specs you mentioned,but let me tell you a 680mhz processor in n8 can do almost all the stuff your SGS2 does. i've used both these handsets. symbian belle works much better than my other android handset, thats a fact.
And RAM: 256mb in n8 can multitast like a moster, the multitasking in symbian^3 is the best multitasking ever.
Design: N8 has a unibody anodized aluminium, it has a real solid feel, much better than a cheap plastic samsung Galaxy S2.
Apps: microsoft is providing better apps next year, wait and watch.
I'm not denying that SGS2 is not capable, its a monster i know that, never underestimate N8, it has its own potential.
Why you need a dual core and extra RAM when a single core is capable of doing all those stuff, its a waste of money and resources.
ANDROID is copy of the ios. Thats a fact, you should accept it.........
Does the s2 heat up fairly easily? or does it only heat up while playing games? Also has anyone tried playing dungeon defenders on the S2?
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2011Lets be honest it is a very child like phone full of gimmicks to keep the children happy also ... morewhao... cool down..n i must say u got some guts coming here n downgrading one of the most powerful phones.. and that to to a symbian platform.hey do u have any enmity with samsung. anyways on what basis r u comparing the two. ur n8 only has a better cam.nuthing else. obviously u must know the diff between the two processors. 1.2 ghz vs 680 mhz.. biiiiggg diff.
moreover s2 has an hsdpa of 21 mbps whereas n8 is 10. again faster downloading speed for s2.
plus s2 is nt only faster cause of cpu but also because of its ram. 1gb ram against nokias 256 mb. not even half on s2.
smaller screen size for n8.
design wise, the s2 is sleek.. n8 is bulky. (i even like the n8's design n feel though.)
a vga secondary camera vs a 2mp cam for samsung. the difference is evident.
and even android has offline maps.
no wifi direct in n8. tht means no high speed data transfer. n by high speed i mean transferring a 150 mb file within seconds.
no nfc for nokia yet.
with majority of the phones running on android, there r thousands of applications to choose from. symbian loses out badly compared to android.
a much sharper display for s2. so it means bigger screen n a much sharper display, better graphics than n8.
so how on earth do u say n8 is better than this monster. well u wud like n8 only if
- u like photography
-u work for nokia.
else its completely baseless to compare the two. even on the net u may find tht s2 is majorly compared with iphone4 and htc sensation. but n8 is far behind my friend. even i was a big fan of nokia but this fone has changed it all.

Pls I need clarifications on certain areas before I buy my copy....
Does the phone actually have a problem with heating up indiscriminately or its peculiar to faulty handsets from d manufacturers?
Is d android market accessible from nigeria?
Do u require d internet to play games,operate third-party applications?...... Cos there are speculations that d phone is heavily dependent on d internet for its operations
Does it support push email client for multiple mail accounts e.g yahoo,hotmail,gmail,ovi etc I.e mails dropping like text messages like in nokia messaging email?
