I currently own: Nokia 5800, E7, N8, X7, N9, N900, Lumia 800, Samsung Galaxy S 2.3, iPod touch 4g (only 5800, galaxy and iPod I paid for, the rest are gifts from Nokia as I'm Nokia Developer Champion and a success publisher)
still want a symbian phone(waiting the 808:D) because:
1.best platform for developers - hardcore prgramming with c++, easy programming with WRT(web-flashLite) and evolved programming with Qt;
2.best OS (not resounrce hungry - not even a PC wouldn't play a HD movie with a 680Mhz processor)
3.best hardware designs (most experienced company)
iOS looks good (gradints and shadows), but only ground breaking was iPhone1, the rest was just the wave and great marketing; iPhones is comunist because it makes you all the same... the same phone, you cannot have a personality and chose from different models
Android is open for malware but the techs love-it because is hackable, better than iOS but if the battery wasn't so worst maybe it has a shoot in convincing me...
love this belle, is better than android (different backgrounds-more personalization; landscape mode in homescreen)
juat used ma friends s3 and frankly,, phone is smooth, the response is gud and its fast.....but after usin it for sometym i found out dat same ui for samsung is boring(compared vid htc wnich is very gud in n android, i think best till date), d body looks cheap and its quite light dsnt feels luxury phone just sm cheap chinese device,,,, d screen is awesum but its damn too big, i wud better luv a notepad instead for dat, camera is ok.. In d phone screens pics are gud, but ven i checkd in p.c, it was just lil above avg(nowhere even near to ma n8 as well), and d phone slipped quite frequently,,,my friend was about to kill me...nd last but not d least we still have heating prokem in s3 although not as hot as s2(s2 a blast furnance, dunno who was d stupidiest person wno named it phone of the year ve i cant even access f.b for 15 minutes widout the device becmng lava hot), but still device was hot....but at the end of day wen i made my friend have a luk at p.v in nokia shop he was flattered.....he just cant take gis eyes of d device and altnough he didnt said anything out buying galaxy s3 but he only disheartndly luked at the grip of p.v vid d camera and whole new symbian belle.......and only dese wordings came out of his mouth.......pics are meant to b preserved as dey remind of ur past and not some game scores or big screen...
!.. Even though he boughts3 but smwhere insyd his heart 808 made a mark....dats d power of dis phone ......can any s###troid fan claim this??????.....huh
This phone is Over priced. I'd Rather buy a SLR or a DSLR as Belle OS does not have the features required. Spending 34000 for the camera is crazy. S3 is much better. FYI I have a N8 and S3 both. Was waiting for this phone but its over over priced.
blueglue, 13 Jun 2012Correction, when you have a best camera, you ought to have the Burst mode. Try taking a kid's... morehahahaha...... I think the sony experia s has d most number of camera settings.... Nd if p.v dsnt have a burst mode den dnt crib over it beause v have camera pro and shutterpro as free applications in n8fanclub......ur android can t eve give dose for free....holy crap......nd wid ur galaxy crap u c take as much pics u want....as irreapecive of it..dey will b evn worsd de my n8 leave aside p.v....hahahahah.....any day ur andfoid sux big tym.......i
I don't just know why pple are talking about qua co, while symbian that runs on single core is doing anythine those qua co are doing even better in some case.
First Samsung buys Nokia, well could of but fell pity on old dying company at the last minute, then claims to kill facebook (which has close to 1 billion users) with its own "Samsung Facebook" slogan, invests in worlds first 12nm factories - Samsung is taking over the world!!! nuff said
...or maybe they just have too much money to burn?! whats next? Make Apple go bankrupt since everyone knows Apple relies on Samsung's technology - well that be one ultimate boss fight
You can always judge a man by the quality of his enemies...dat xplains a lot for nokia haters.
samanand, 13 Jun 2012Seriously man India has been the most loyal country to Nokia even in its worst current situati... moreHere You are right! For the specs the price is not too much, but judging on how Nokia did with Lumia phones, giving them almost for free to boost WP sells, yes Symbian lovers deserve same treatment! But I guess that Symbian and MeeGo are the only OS-es that make mony for NOKIA!
Nokia 808 vs Galaxy SIII my version..
1.Camera -- 808 way ahead of Galaxy SIII
2.Build Quality -- Again Nokia better than Samsung
3.Screen Size -- I'll prefer 4"(808) to rather 4.8" (oversized for me)
4. Display -- though sIII has better resolution on paper but naked eye cant differentiate the pixelisation on 808 vs SIII .. do we need overpixelisation which is actually battery drainer
5. battery -- Nokia 808 (1400mAH)outperforms(2-3 days) samsung sIII(2100)(1-2days) as nokia belle is highly resource efficient
6. CPU -- nothing much to choose, 1.3Ghz (nokia 808)vs 1.4Ghz (samsung), infact 1.3Ghz better as again belle needs less power.
7. Apps -- SIII has more apps than nokia 808 but quality apps are available across all the platforms.. and who is going to download millions of app anyway..
8. Sound -- nokia 808 has Dolby Digital plus and true surround exp on headphone.. clearly winner over Samsung SIII
9.Network -- nokia 808 has pentaband support but Samsung SIII has quad support again nokia winner
10.Browser -- Samsung SIII has Adobe flash while nokia 808 has flash lite..samsung wins but adobe flash lite is good enough for daily needs
11.FM -- nokia 808 has fm transmitter, samsung sIII hasn't.. nokia 808 the winner
12.GPS -- Nokia 808 maps can be preloaded of an entire continent or a country level which is much more than samsung SIII (maps can be preloaded but not upto that level as I see)
13. OS support -- nokia belle to atleast 2016 and samsung current ICS will be supported well but people will really use this ICS in 2016 or something else.. so os support is a non-issue
Seriously man India has been the most loyal country to Nokia even in its worst current situation... While people in US get Lumia900 for 100USD with 100USD voucher.... This phone should be lil more affordable..around 26-28k may be...
Why whe sammy fanboys always troll? Whenever there is a post about a phone in 10 seconds max there is a post saying uuuuuu my S2\S3 are better. Samsung is a trend and it will pass. When Motorola V3 got released eveybody were saying that it's the end for Nokia. Same was when Sony Ericsson released T68 - the first mobile with color display and add on camera, but then the 7650 came and the rest was history. Nokia will return and meanwhile go and exchange experience between yourselves on Samsung related posts and stop wining here like you have tested all phones
Finally its here will have to got get mine...been waiting for this one thanx nokia for this monster of them all....
peoples who are going to buy,
might never come to this kind of blog...
they get it by the same time
not waste time like us
which/who/when is better
(actualy we all not have enough money to buy these handsets and give lots of time for critisism and feel jealous without any reason)
no ceo/company come to us for thanks that u bought its handset..
so go to market bought what you like
its your money and u deciede how you spend it
