[deleted post]Oh, boy! :rolleyes:
You have proven to us that you're clearly not interested in the Symbian OS. For someone who actually dislikes it, you are quite active here in Nokia related discussions. It would be nice if you could add something substantial and - for sure - topic related. Otherwise, why do you even bother spreading unrelated and mispresented (and false) information about a product that you clearly dispite so much?
People like you ruin the entire comment section at GSM Arena. Back in time, it was fun and informative to come here and read. These days, you find only people posting their biased opinion and hate. I don't mind so much if somebody doesn't like the same product I am interested in. However, not being able to accept the fact that other people don't share your same likes and dislikes is rather childish, especially if you can't present facts! And trying to preach Android in a Nokia related section is - clearly - spamming!
wow quite a war going on when ever something other than andoid is mentioned why is that, aren't were all people who buy what we want, why behave like a bunch of pre- schoolers who don't get to nap on time. you love your os well wait for when there's some news on it and post there, don't make the other os's comment area a battle field.
its realy different and improoved than old symbian^1 .and new tab option is raely nice in browser.
unless symbian has these features, i wont go back to nokia....
1.Fast web browser that doesn't hang,supports flash, and view web pages completely as how it is in pc..
2. A very progressive and entertaining app store.. (Ovi store..?? cmon, it doesnt even comes close to Android market or iOS' app sotre)
3.good looking user interface filled with nice looking interactive widgets (not just rectangular boxes with some icons inside)
4.true meaning of Multi tasking.. where you can toggle different functions at a time and of course No Hangs...(not just opening every app u have and seeing it dont hang)
e.g. Playing a game while listening to music and at the same time downloading,installing 5 or more apps (with no worries in recieving my push emails)...
5.Phone book contacts synchronized with All of my social network contacts.. imagine a contact containing saved numbers(default phone function), includes all of his info and profile in facebook and twitter accounts..so when u view that specific contact, not only "send sms/mms or call numbr" are the options, you can post on his/her wall,access his/her pictures, etc... everything in just one phone book..
and only android says Y-e-S to all of these features...

Its about user-experience which Symbian Touch s... morehehehe I don't defend Symbian, for my point of view need a retirement, but Android has no point, isn't a Good OS either, I prefeer iOS over Android and Symbian, but I will wait for the new WM7 updates, for now...I will keep a low profile on easy to use OS tna a greedy one like Android...
And you can't defend Android OS either, is here just beacuse the lag of a real OS around...As I said iOS is a great OS, too bad is Just for Apple devices, but, that's part of their greatness, I'll assume WM7 will do the same on Nokia phones...but only the time will descide who will won, but Android needs a lot of imprvement...Maybe Android OS 3 wil be something good, but for now Android 2.xx still inmature..
being a free OS..
Android service level of agreement is 0.
its a fact.. read it on the web..
Bananna Joe, 15 Apr 2011The answer is simple.....The OS is cheap.....just that
Is not the same pay for the copyrigh... moreIts not about Android being "cheap". Its about user-experience which Symbian Touch sucks...big time!
You knew that iPhone is an expensive phone yet Apple reaping off huge profit, too.
You're argument of the Android OS's being "cheap" is pointless.
You can't defend Symbian anymore and I feel sorry for you...really.
go nokia and symbian!!! the android trolls must be interested in nokia because of the repetitive negative comments which are getting old and annoying. also, they are jealous because android's update for its os is not as fast as nokia's symbian updates.
Some would say symbian is dead! what a bad joke!!! symbian is very much alive because of nokia.
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2011Of all people that says Android OS sucks...you seems to use a lot of Android phone...
And i... moreThe answer is simple.....The OS is cheap.....just that
Is not the same pay for the copyrights of Microsoft or iOS..
So..Cheaper is better...only for HTC.
Of curse have great profits...for something that is cheap like Android, without any support and NO BRANDED OS....man I wish I also have a phone company tooo :P JUST LIKE LINUX if meay say
[deleted post]Of all people that says Android OS sucks...you seems to use a lot of Android phone...
And if indeed it sucks...then why HTC's made a huge profit by mere Android OS.
Can you explain that? Of course you can't.
"Now Nokia don't need that, ther processors go from 325 Mhz, to 435 Mhz and 600 Mhz, they don't need dual cores or anything and their phones runs smootly.....Well, we need to fill Android greedy hungry needs after all..."
While I can understand your frustration with certain sentiments fact is;
People just won't pay 2011 PRICES for 2008 TECH.Take it or leave it.
It's naive to believe that Nokia is sticking to said clock speeds because they know their OS...They don't...Ask the disgruntled Symbian devs and they'll tell you that Nokia themselves avoided from fulfilling the base phone hardware reqs moving from S60 to beyond.You won't find the online docs anymore."Conveniently" now it's folded to closed source.Like it or not, it's just piss poor cost control drama and over the years even the most hardcore Nokia fans got screwed market price-wise when "alternative" and same classed phones were out.
It's not Android's nor the fanboys' fault.It's Nokia's own fault because they thought that their market position allows them to do what RIM has been doing with their Blackberries.Half assing products with past year tech, charge CURRENT prices AND bungling OWN OSes along the way.So of course there's no surprise there when now we have even cheaper incumbents like ZTE and Huawei scoring some points front and centre.Regardless if they're Androids.
And it's NOT ABOUT CPU on SoC clock speeds.It's about CPU "generation".A 600Mhz ARM Cortex A8 are literally a world of diff to ANY slightly higher clocked yet older ARM 11s.Why do you think Nokia went for that ARM Cortex A8 + PowerVR SGX530 combo for the N900?That's right.To let Maemo scale up better.How hard is it to simply use current smartphone SoCs and underclock when it's necessary for some models?
Oh and have you checked WP7's latest sys spec lately?Explain how's that a good thing for Nokia to follow then?
When android born, they ENSURE and they trie to make us think Android will run in any phone with slow specs....Just Like LINUX...
But they NEED MORE AND MORE HARDWARE to trie make this atrocity to run corretly...and guess what? They can't!!!
Every new version requires more and more hardware specs.....And I remember the time people crucify Windows Phone OS for beign greedy about specs, and Android is doing the same path.....like Linux.
Now Nokia don't need that, ther processors go from 325 Mhz, to 435 Mhz and 600 Mhz, they don't need dual cores or anything and their phones runs smootly.....Well, we need to fill Android greedy hungry needs after all...
[deleted post]That's my point...
I can stand on the side of a company that DON'T GIVE SUPPORT TO USERS...
Google just SUCKS BIG TIME in support, and is very frustaiting trie to solve their problems....the Source Code of Android STILL in BETA, and their are using us as Lab Ratos to test something that is plagued of errors...
Sorry but my 3 years using Android has benn not pleasant as my 20 years using Nokia...
[deleted post]Don't misundertand me...The hardware on my 4G was really cool, was that horrid Android OS.
The experience is not good, way too slow, don care if you have dual core, the refreshing rate is slow, the audio drivers are bad, have a lot of issues in bluetooth and GPS, the front camera on all devices ar bad, the thettering is not constant...and the list still growing...
And Google don't stand behind their own OS, no one to complaint...just stupid and useless forums.....
Since Nokia announced its partnership with Microsoft I have found various new and beta software offerings from Nokia on Symbian that point to Symbian offering a real challenge to iOS and Android. For example, Swype, the Sleeping Screens screensaver, the 3D photo browser and the new Ovi Maps. These new apps give a fun user experience which is what users love in iOS and Android. It is not the same fun user experience but it is one that challenges iOS and Android. It offers hope that if you want the best imaging phone (i.e. the N8) you will not have to compromise useability. Plus the S^3 devices have massively improved touch responsiveness (which was brought home to me with a thud today when I dusted off my SE Vivaz which is an S60r5 device and the responsiveness, well, it is not). So, this new browser in Anna shows Nokia is moving towards having an S^3 which is really competitive. This is great but tinged with sadness because I cannot help fearing that Nokia's development efforts are going to split so that S^3 never reaches its full potential and WP7 on Nokia does not improve fast enought to stay competitive. Many people have turned away from Nokia in the last year or so (e.g. Symbian-guru.com) because of disappointment with Nokia's failure to keep up with the other platforms (especially disappointment with the N97). It is a shame because I believe Nokia has always had the best hardware (most individual designs and greatest variety) and is now really hitting its stride on the software front with S^3.
Hey all of you who are trolling around here, specially you The Ex-Nokia Fanboy, can't you see yourselves just giving the same opinion and issues again and again, why don't you just enjoy what you have right now, if your very happy with IOS/Android devices then what's the point for trolling, did these companies pay you to convince us that Nokia sucks? Just enjoy using your toys, and we will enjoy what we have. And my God, you are still telling us this immature video from youtube.
The great news here, about Nokia is, they are still giving support and updates to Symbian even if they are going now to Windows Phone OS.
For me, even if they are going to change their OS, I will still use Nokia, see this one, http://www.engadget.com/2011/04/13/this-is-windows-phone-next-developers-take-notes-video/ I am excited on what's going to be with Nokia Windows Phones.
Get real!, 15 Apr 2011You forget 2 facts: the X7 is not even released yet and you don't even know when the vidoe was... moreAgree
Once I was using 6 different models of Android phones can make my desicion ANDROID suck in many areas...
However I can wait to get my grubby7 fingers on that Nokia W series.
But until I don't have it at my hands I can speak of that gadget.....And any one can't..
Get real!, 14 Apr 2011Funny you say that! Up to now, Symbian still can keep up with any other phone OS. In many case... moreIt is actually funny! I know symbian can do a lot of things... in the end it is a smartphone OS, isn't it? But in all honesty (eye candy or not) have you compared the latest symbian phones to the latest android or iOS phones? Come on, it's not just the apps... its how practical and well-thought-out UIs are that matters... If you can do the same things with symbian that you can do with android and vice-versa, would you not rather have a UI that's more intuitive and responsive? I know I would...
