Vivaz does not have WVGA resolution, the N8 too! I hope that can support, but if the newer S3 can support, then why Nokia didn't put that resolution on the N8???

BY the time we have gingerbread phones, we will have S^4 phones shortly later, and really, S^4 is definitely on par. (Even though I think s^3 is already).
Also, MeeGo will be out by that time, and with all due respect to the fantastic speed with which Android develops, Maemo already beats it, let alone MeeGo.
allbrands, 04 Jun 2010Symbian works well with any size screen, including 3.7 inch amoled, 16m colours as on Samsung ... morethat was a reason why i bought x10 and not omnia hd,faulty symbiand and low resolution screen you once try wvga and never go for lowwer screen
allbrands, 04 Jun 2010Symbian works well with any size screen, including 3.7 inch amoled, 16m colours as on Samsung ... moremistake!not size is important but resolution and symbian doesnt play with high ends wvga resolution,picture on symbian are not readable and clear like on wvga on x10
Mobilemaster, 04 Jun 2010This is true, the N8 needs a WVGA resolution, but Symbian 3 can support it?? If yes, then why ... morenokia may want to save money.lower resolution less investment i personaly stopped buying nokias after n95,cheap plastic,bad camera,soft problems even after flashing,in my opinion nokia have some good phones[eseries] but not the best only in price,the best overpriced so i think you can choose much better phone for better price in samsung or sony even htc store.symbyan is dead oudated,maemo not popular,only android have big future because google is very flexible also may wm 7 will be ok

Both usin... moreYou are right, is pointless to compare X10 with N8, because both have different OS. This is why I wanted to compare 2 Symbian smart phones. I don't really think that to compare Android with Bada is a good comparison. Maybe you will see me comparing the X10 with Symbian phones, because I want others to see the differences between UI, or the Menu, applications, etc.
rebel , 04 Jun 2010but such large screen 3.5'' and only symbian resolution must be useless that resolution is goo... moreSymbian works well with any size screen, including 3.7 inch amoled, 16m colours as on Samsung OmniaHD. This screen was its biggest selling point.
[deleted post]nokia is the same like the others,wake up!also nokia is loosing ground you will see in next 1 or 2 years because they are not able to hold competion and the other thing is that nokia just assambly its phones from foreign components,german lens,american processor and so on.nokia is not doing anything,look at se or samsung.they have their own components.that's means that company is strong and able to make all itself even i can confirm the fact that nokias or lg famous lens produced wors pictures then my samsungs an se with their own non famous lens and can say that i was makeing long test

Both using Symbian. But the Vivaz is more of a camera/video phone and the N8 is more of a music phone. Each phone is best for what it is designed for. Both are awesome phones.
The N8 should never be compared with the X10 as they are completly different devices.
Compare the X10 with Samsung Wave and decide which is better.
Mobilemaster, 04 Jun 2010Those specs are AWESOME man, but when Nokia will be able to make such a phone with 1.2GHZ CPU,... morego to shop and buy yourself 12mp nokia xe xe impossible you must wait long long time. the other thing is that symbian is good for dump even more then wm 6.5

Awesome news from SE!!!
This news is almost scary.
Ravz, 04 Jun 2010From what i've read 2.2 needs lesser hardware specs than 2.1...so ofcourse X10 can support it.... moreThen this is awesome. I don't know why many people here say that this can't support the Froyo? It seems they are jealous! You saw my link what I posted?? See that news!
Mobilemaster, 04 Jun 2010This is for me?? I can't bash HTC, because they are advanced than Sony Ericsson, I admit this... moreFrom what i've read 2.2 needs lesser hardware specs than 2.1...so ofcourse X10 can support it...check the tweeter for SE..they did say they will be working on later version of OS after 2.1 release.
Mark, 04 Jun 2010Yes, you are absolutely right, SE uses higher end processors for its Android phones than Nokia... moreI kept the X10 in my hands, and I can tell you that it is very fast, has a great UI, has interesting applications preinstalled , the Mediascape application is very good, and useful I think. I didn't tried to play games, so I can't tell you anything about games, sorry. The N8 is good if we compare the N97 with it! Let's compare Symbian devices with Symbian devices! The Vivaz Pro, has 720MHZ CPU, the N8 has 680 MHZ, it is almost the same. Vivaz Pro has HD video recording, the N8 has too, but Vivaz Pro was announced earlier than the N8. Vivaz Pro has a QWERTY keypad, which the N8 lacks. THe N8 has a bigger screen. The N8 has a better camera that Vivaz Pro. I kept Vivaz in my hands, it is an interesting device! :) Vivaz Pro I didn't saw with my eyes yet, but I believe that it is great. It is sad, that has only 3.2 inch screen, it needs a 3.5 inch scree.
Man, we android user can still compare devices which nokia will beat 1. x10, desire, incredible, galaxy, motoroi, evo 4g. android will take over very soon. 1 year late you will not buy a symbian phone again. because from froyo any android devices will crash nokia. what about gingerbreak?
Mobilemaster, 04 Jun 2010Well, I just wanted to post an example how far can go SE, if they wants! :) Maybe my example i... moreYes, you are absolutely right, SE uses higher end processors for its Android phones than Nokia uses for their Symbian phones. Judging purely from Mhz, SE wins!
However, there is a very big difference between Android and Symbian, and that is hardware UI acceleration. Which is why for instance the X10 has not GPU, it cant use it anyway. For symbian however, S^3 is fully accelerated, and the strong GPU does a lot of work.
In the end, we will have to wait and see, which device can run games faster etc, but currently, the N8 is maxing out the benchmarks at 60 fps. We need a new benchmark! :)
How about the X10? Do you know its performance?
