AnonD-12379, 01 Aug 20111st of all Nokia is not a dead company but might be sleeping like a giant dragon . When symbia... moresilly comparison.
your N70 is not as complex as today MODERN SMARTPHONE so it do less and work less than TODAY MODERN SMARTPHONE.
its like you just trying to compare i486 CPU with DOS OS playing digger VS P IV playing same games on a win XP, just try it man play digger on DOS emulator is it really 400x speed improve???
symbian is stupid down to the core and nobody can fix it,if nokia can fix it,they will not suffered so much lost like today.
dont waste your money on symbian,it is the real death end.
I don't like it Nokia come back when u make one hell of phone not this crap lol
Too little, too late... Too say the device is cheap therefore everything is OK is uust plain naive IMHO. It seems Nokia are tyring to make this look like a genuine competitor to much better devices and saying that because it cheap that makes everything OK when it fails miserably. This seems like "death by a thousand cuts" to me. It is sad to watch.
Did u know ? Its only a arm chip overclocked from 400 mhz to 1ooo mhz . So don expect to be speedy .First of all nokia is losing customers now , they have made fixed focus to increase their shame ! All Thanks to elop for making nokia lose !
Arguements again, lol. Dunno why the Android fans keep coming to Nokia threads just to bash Nokia. What's with the comparision with Samsung Galaxy S? That cost 3X more in my country.
The company dying or not(it certainly doesnt seem so in my country); what matters to me as end user is whether the device will die/break,etc on me before reaching 3 years.
So far, stainless steel wins over plastic, I'll take Nokia anytime. With plastic, I'll worry if it breaks shortly after the 1 year warranty.
No GPU on this bad boy as it seems, but it better have more RAM to make it worthwhile. My N97 didn't like multitasking.
Dude we dont hate nokia.. But we r sad that they r not goin for the Android which is the best.... Why does a symbian need 1ghz pro unnecessary.....
Vijay, 01 Aug 2011Hi Friend, Those were addressed in Anna. Please wake up. None of that is addressed, and Symbian is fundamentally terrible, no update will save it.
AnonD-12379, 01 Aug 20111st of all Nokia is not a dead company but might be sleeping like a giant dragon . When symbia... moreyes you age right :-) 1 ghz symbian will be like F1 cars :-) . nokia is best :-) release it very soon :-)
no symbian belle? lame....
it looks so laggy and slow for 1 ghz phone
AnonD-2461, 01 Aug 2011The sample video of nokia 500 look laggy..Is that 1GHz processor?? Worse..It's a 1 GHz CPU, but what makes it laggy was the application being WRT, should've followed Nokia's standard and use Qt.
There is no big difference betveen x6 and this LAGGY nokia 500.Useless waste of money, better buy galaxy s :)

Anonymous, 01 Aug 2011Once again, what have you gained from going to ios4? Wallpapers and shitty multitasking. Andro... moreJust read these,
Updates, improvements, new features, bug fixes... but yes, yes according to you Symbian is already perfect and has everything, except it does absolutely nothing well.
And people already know that are voting with their wallets, and that's what matters.
Nokia can't even make the browser worth anything... and Nokia fan's answer is: Get Opera. LOL.
You can't even do a search in Symbian music player.
Some other problems with Symbian...
-Keyboard is not multitouch
-No portrait keyboard
-Keyboard does not overlay/”hover” over an app, opens in it’s own new window instead
-Built in Browser is terrible
-Homescreen does not follow the finger
-Photo viewer lags on the first pinch-zoom gesture, no kinetic panning when zoomed it the picture, no bounce effect(on both max zoom in and out)
-Does not rotate to landscape to both sides
-Animations and transitions effects aren’t good/consistent
-Needs 30FPS video recording, continuous auto-focus option
-Menu positions gets reset when you open/close menu, you always open the menu from “scratch”
-Player does not remember the video position when you exit
-Music player lacks lots of features
-No birthday imports from contacts into the calendar
-Search - is terrible, slow and useless
Look ugly...Hmm why the camera with no flash..And maybe it fixed focus again..!!
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2011Enjoy battery suckers Dual cores are more battery efficient that single core CPUs.
Goes to show how uninformed Nokia fans are.
Are you trolls ignorant, stupid, or both?? This phone costs 150 Euro (180 after tax). The Samsung Galaxy s costs in excess of 300 Euro (500+ for the S2)
Let's compare apples to apples:
Samsung Corby 2 - price 150 Euro
SCREEN: TFT capacitive touchscreen, 256K colors;
240 x 320 pixels, 3.2 inches
Internal memory: 26 MB
3G: No, it doesn't support it
Primary camera : 2 MP, 1600x1200 pixels
Browser: WAP 2.0/xHTML, HTML (No flash - not event Flash lite)
Category feature phone
OK I'll be a bit more fair and see what Samsung are offering within the low-mid range category running android
Samsung Galaxy Prevail (price 220 Euro)
Screen: TFT capacitive touchscreen, 256K colors;
320 x 480 pixels, 3.2 inches
Internal memory: 117 MB
3G: Rev. 0, upto 2.4 Mbps
Camera: 2 MP, 1600x1200 pixels
CPU: 600mhz processor overclocked to 800mhz. Arm6 build so no Flash 10.
If you are dumb enough to spend more money on a phone with less features, then go ahead and buy a cheap android handset. Just stop talking crap!
