Anonymous, 17 Nov 2010nokia n8 vs samsung(wave,galaxy s)
amoled vs Super AMOLED (The thickness of the touch sen... more360 x 640 pixels vs 480 x 800 pixels - It's still a good resolution if you intend to use it as a phone and this resolution also provides reverse compatability for earlier appsw without needing rescaling.
nothing vs DNSe (Digital Natural Sound Engine)- A true music enthusiast doesn't care about DNSe. Ok if in N8 case I can simply say stereo widening and loudness setting which wave lacks though someone like me doesn't actually care about these stuff. A custom eq setting on the other hand is very well appreciated.
nothing vs video light(wave) power led flash !!!!!! (two times powerfull then ordinary led) - Ever heard of Xenon flash?
720p@25fps vs 720p@30fps - Don't even get me started on video quality. 720p@25 fps with almost no frame drops. In wave's case, 30fps is just the max framerate which will decrease according to the complexity of the scenes and result in stuttering of videos.
ARM 11 680 MHz processor(A 11 is one of oldest processors on market!!!!!) vs ARM Cortex A8 1GHz - It's like comparing ubuntu running on an Intel atom netbook vs a core2duo pc running vista. Specs may differ but the end performance is almost the same.
256MB RAM vs 512 Ram MEMORY - With 256mb RAM, N8 can run morethan 8 native 3rd party symbian applications smoothly while 512 mb is just useless when wave can't even run more than one 3rd party bada app at a time.
512 MB ROM vs 2 GB Rom memory - 512mb is more than necessay for an already light symbian os. It's not like you're gonna load windows xp or something.
some ordinary audio chip vs WOLFSON audio chip wm8994 ( best audio chip ever build in some phone !!!!!!!!!!!!!)-one of the most reputed experts in the acoustic domain. - Ha ha too bad wave doesn't support custom EQ. A custom EQ is a must have for a trum music enthusiast.
30 million triangles/sec vs 3d graphic chip powervr sgx 540 with score of 90 million triangles/sec...he leaves ps1, ps2 and psp behind - But still ps1, ps2 and psp are better equiped as a gaming console while the wave is neither.
nothing vs dlna(far superior technology)- Hmmm your so biased that you failed to mention about HDMI that supports 5.1ch Dolby DTS surround
nothing vs mdlne( technology from samsung television)- A phone is just a phone afterall it's not like you're gonna use it as a TV anyway.
super slow phone vs super fast phone - And how do you judge performance? Do you have a benchmark to prove your statment?
super laging phone vs super responsive phone - In your dreams. A few ms of lag is always acceptable for a true multitasking smartphone like the N8.
When you touch anything on the screen it takes at least 2 seconds to react vs super internet broswing experience
Just copy pasting some of wave's browser shortcomings
1. some times the browser will stop all featues and will throw an msg 'insufficient memory', after this it will stop zoom and opening of new web pages.even though it may be 2nd page only. it works only after reboot.
2. sometimes i see the msg insufficeny memory and to close application even though i may be running one app in the background. i am not sure what is it that requires suh an huge mem to run.
3. is there any way to save web pages as html files. i am also not able to figure out how to sav web addesses.
4. all the streaming videos are not supported and you get a msg f9 flash symbol. flsh version nt supportted. is there an update available where i would be able to play all kind of videos. i have not updated my bada sw after purchase.
5. is there some way to save unsupported files. for ex i want to dl a file with extension .mpp from my email, bada os will refuse to do so as th file is not supported.
In addition n8 has Opera mobile10 as well as Opera mini for symbian which is the fastest out there but wave has none.
The best thing for n8 is 12 mpx camera, while wave hast one of the shittiest 5mp camera inferior to even the older n series phones like n95
I am using Wave since July or so. The phone is almost near perfect as far as processing speed, music, display, camera quality, etc are concerned. Beats N8 in almost all respects, but N8 being a Nokia has its own benifits atleast to me who have used Nokia phones all my life.
Since 2-3days i am facing a problem, whenever at the time of multitasking, usually a message 'Memory low, network widgets closed' occurs, i mean even when operating some really light apps, this message occurs, sometimes even while using Daily Brief app, this message occurs & application closes down automatically with all other network widgets. I mean i have all other things on my Memory card & phone memory is not used mostly other than contacts & for some wallpapers & ringtones.
Also, the navigation app & internet browser are very irritating on Wave, especially the web browser is not at all like a smart phone. I have a net connection which needs to be logged in first & then we can use, now this Dolphin doesnt opens the IP for login page, it works only when i have already logged in through my PC or other Nokia phone, this is really irritating. Also many times i see the error 'Page too large to open' while opening some web sites like Facebook, etc, sometimes even without images. I never faced such problems with the browser that comes with Nokia.
Please help me for the above issues, any other web browser available for Wave, also what about the network widgets being closed every now & then, also how to get Google maps for Wave.
