Window phones are for graduates and android for students. symbian is great (esp since belle) but it has the same problem as window phones- no apps.
I once used galaxy gio but sold it because it was low on many things. But it did get one thing right, it had a great dictionary with many useful apps for a student which are readily available in sites like waptrick. Symbian of course has dictionary but if you are not in US I pity you.
Right now I'm confused on which one to buy. I have used both android and symbian but never windows and i so much want to go for the later but, but i still have 2yrs in the higher institution. Which means it should be android coz of apps.
Can anybody help me make a better decision?

I compared the photos taken by my 808pv and my bro's n8. it was 808pv's 8MP vs n8's 12MP. But the result was shocking for me. 808's performance was much much much better than n8's 12MP. I'm very happy to have that monster. :-D

And belle os is just great......compared to glxy cam its best......

I got my 808 after long wait time..so this is time to say welcome to mobile photography world...
actually its a nice ph9one and the features is good its cent % handicome beacause its included 41mp
Anonymous, 24 Dec 2012Yes Belle is a mature, rich of features, user friendly, and highly competitive OS. It is light... moreIts our duty to tell people about it. Only drawback we have is windows 8. Htc and samsung are also using that platform. Its so stupid of Nokia. Only people that will laugh all the way to the bank is microsoft. Now Nokia will compete with rivals with same os.....lol. Its stupid! We must go for belle...only way. Camera should be nr two marketing tool.

Anonymous, 23 Dec 2012Just for the thought: why cant nokia take the 920 and 820 with nokia belle? I think it will be... moreYes Belle is a mature, rich of features, user friendly, and highly competitive OS. It is light years above Symbian S60 and comparable to all existing modern OSes in the market. In fact, what makes 808PV a great phone is because 808PV is using a very capable Nokia Belle FP2. Without Belle, for example, there is no way Nokia will have the ability to deliver a 41 MP camera phone in 2012, and win various awards from here and there.
friends nothing can beat pv its awsome phone we can do more changes to pv screen with so many themes which is not possible in android phone,when we change theme in android the main UI doesn't change check that and camera is worst even 8mp also and no phone is good in music output i have checked they launched with so many name xloud in sony and beat audio i n htc phone those who are using doesn't even know how much fun in in n8 or in pv they are missing be it in camera or dolby or durability nothing id comparable to nokia phones i pity for them just they are misleading by sony,samsung,htc,or any other phones if nokia launched stores across globe to use and buy policy then it's a hell for other phones manufacturers nokia should come up with live phones in stores with headphones and good sales guyz to explain to customers the potential of nokia im not denying nokia display but at few places it has dummy phones and can not experience fully...
JP, 23 Dec 2012Hi 808 users..plz help me..i am planning to buy this phone,but i want to know the real battery... morego ahead buy it. It's way better than c7.. I have both..! I love nokia phones because of their superior quality.. My 808 last one and half to two days of heavy usage and i have no major issues or problems as far as the connectivity is concerned.. Good Luck! :)
Carol, 23 Dec 2012The thing is, that Symbian got a bad name cause of frustrate newbies and anti-publicity. The ... moreInteresting thing: on iphone forum i talked about my n8, and an android fan told me that it was NOT a smart phone and that i had no idea what i was talking about! And one thing, apart from slow speed of of n8 and maybe screen readability, its a far better phone than GS3 by miles!! How come people dont see it? 808 is in same category as GS3 and IP5, but lot of reviews are saying that nokia belle is behind!! How in the world? Its on par or even better! Am i that stupid? Lol...
Carol, 23 Dec 2012The thing is, that Symbian got a bad name cause of frustrate newbies and anti-publicity. The ... moreIm just afraid wp will negatively effect nokia. My old n8 is so superior and easy....simple thing, create folders for sms...you cant do it in apple. My android phone is now with my son. I dont like it. Customizing is just moving widgets and icons around. Anybody liking android is just not thinking or dont know whats good. I still say, if 920 for example could enter the market with symbian (or belle), it could kill all other phones. What I most like about nokia is the build quality. Iphone cant go without a cover. Its slippery sort of. Nokia is so perfect build, i only put a screen protector on. Its not slippery and so easy to pick up and handle. Reason for my iphone is integration with icloud and ipad i got as a present from my daughter. If it was not for the slow speed of n8 or the sync i already got with iphone, i would rather use my old n8! Why in the world could nobody support symbian via nokia? I can tell you one thing, Samsung overcrowded the world with crap through their marketing plan and copying. Im so negative about apple suing samsung, but they are masters in taking existing things and change it 1% and then flood the market. Apple is in direct competition with Bill Gates, but they first need to get rid of Samsung. My combination for a winner is: Nokia, Symbian/nokia belle, ios6 and nokia phones as basis. Apple can push their devices as corporate support as an extra in the same setup. Windows will have a negative outcome on nokia. My no 1 phone is nokia with symbian/belle, and 2 iphone with ios. Sorry for the wrong reply.....

I think it will be... moreThe thing is, that Symbian got a bad name cause of frustrate newbies and anti-publicity. The world is made of one big herd and small (more open minded) groups in-between. People that have really used Symbian, and also known it's tricks and power, could not just take that android crap as their best ever OS (what a joke). Could also not buy a Samsung (come on...) over a Nokia (comparing the quality). But their is this Herd that is big, the unknowing mass of sheep's that heard about smartphones 3 years ago. Minding the fact that Nokia lost it's power of manipulation (yes Nokia manipulates to, it is normal, companies need to make money, at least Nokia sold good devices) in front of android and ios. So, Symbian got bashed in android and ios favor (this were new, so to introduce something new in a market that was owned by somebody else you have to pay the "big boys" to do small changes of how the herd sees things. So, in this case, the herd was "illuminated" with the existence of smartphones. Of course there was no story about the fact that touchscreens, Bluetooth, internet, e-mail, IRdA, better cameras, super sound, system manipulating apps, 3d games and so on were invented and used by (some) people a long time ago. So, now the herd is in Android market and it's bashing Symbian, even though they have no clue what is that. But they heard bad stuff about it so it must be true. The result? Symbian is now down and Nokia does not own the peoples minds now. A quad-core Symbian will not resurrect Symbian, not now. But for shore after people start to get sick of crapp. For now Nokia needs to enter the market with some new techniques of manipulation. And those are Wp and Lumias. New design, new system, new ideas. Ready to do some other changes for the future... But there is no vision about the future of WP now. People are buying 60 bucks toiletphones cause have android... This is how i see things:). at least:). Sorry that apple is included to. Their is a saying: The best device, is the one in your pocket. And THEY know that. The more you buy what they sell, the more they sell to your friends, and friends of a friend, family... cause of the first rule i mentioned before. So minding the fact that your device is "incredibly superb". You "force" others to buy it cause there is no other like it. And so on and so on.
