I have used android phones, whenever i minimise the apps or games its getting freeze and stall [All android phones], again while i restore the apps its getting reopen. This is ocuring in all latest 4.1 jellybean also, so really i disappointed with android multi tasking functions. But symbian OS doesn't act like this worst android phones. In my point of view symbian is the best OS and real multi tasking phone

Anonymous, 25 Jul 2013I really hope someone like Jolla buys the Symbian project from Nokia and merge it with the Sai... more+1 on this. Jolla is really promising, and it's just not right that Symbian got discontinued just when they got everything right. Imagine if they simply doubled the resolution in both ways to 720x1280 - this would be enough for most screen sizes. Then rewrite apps for the new resolution (hey, it worked for iPhone). Add a few cores just in case, get Damian Dinning to advise them on camera, and that's it. Perfect phone. Of course they would have to get people to develop apps for it but a lot of Android developers earn so little money that they might be interested in trying this. Oh well. Wishful thinking. :-)
I really hope someone like Jolla buys the Symbian project from Nokia and merge it with the Sailfish OS. That'd create the most powerful OS ever! Android and iOS have many things copied from Symbian. Also, i think there's no malwares on Symbian and it is the only OS that doesn't spy on users but seriously there's not going to be any new Symbian phones. If Nokia somehow created a SDK that'd be easy to use and apps written for a current Symbian OS would also work on upcoming Symbian OS. That'd have been great. Did you guys see Jolla revamped MeeGo OS into Sailfish OS? I think it's great and if somehow Symbian gets merged with Sailfish OS, that would be great! A revolutionary OS.

An... moreThe question is: Why the hell should people chose a phone just cause it's popular and has apps. The other question is: why the hell should i have what everybody has? I never had what everybody had. When i had symbian, people did not know what that big thing is. Now, i have symbian and people still don't know what that small thing is;). Sad is that i'm always up front and people are always lagging behind with their trend. Now, let me answer your question: Cause there is still no other system out there to give me what Symbian did and does. The only system that could stand up against Symbian was MeeGo Hartman, and that's gone to. Now, with all the hope wp will get the real Nokia stamp on it i wait for the update that's gonna make it Symbian. If not, still i will be forced to buy one, cause other brands are as lame as a plastic disposable cup.

Google is developing Chrome OS because there's not much future in Android. It's so badly coded it needs 4 cores for something others do with two. Also, 95% of Android paid apps are illegally downloaded = no money for Google. Ad revenues are falling too. You can buy a quad-core 13MP Chinese Android for 200 Euro (free shipping) so the market will go upside down soon too, or move on to something else. Any OS will last 10 years, no matter how popular it is. 100 million people around the world still use Symbian because nothing suits THEIR needs better, no matter how hard they are being told they "need" something else. Finally, Symbian is the only OS that doesn't spy on you, user friendly, battery efficient, you don't need an infinite data plan just for "other" (unknown traffic) and looks better than any other OS. Fully customizable too, good Symbian themes have 1100-1400 icons while top Android icon packs have maybe 700-800. And so on, and so on.

I feel it to be unique as my previous device N9.:). 808 also does wonders in many area as u said. Functions smooth and silky. I expect that nokia won't let 808 down.. But not sure:(

i bought this fine device few weeks back,knowing that its the last nokia runing that OS,but let me tell you it just feels great both hardware and software wise!
when i got it out of the box,i got the latest update belle pak 2 plus other 19 diffrent updates.
the device feels and run great..and it did not hang once since i turn that things on,not even once.
its a great camera too,and it does not feel like its been a year since it came out,all important apps was found and downloaded with ease.
i can go on and on..the last thing i would say do your self a favor and try one and find out for your self!
happy 808 new owner.

An... moreif android is going to rule the world in 5 years and if u r considering abt the main three os in the market.. Then for what hell u came to this page..:P:P:P:P:P. Try something else.. If i ask u to justify 'why u criticise symbian' obviously u will come out with three or four points.. BUt that will be with respect to hardware and apps.. Other than that can u say anything.. That too app department provides us the basics.. SO no worries for symbian user..
Even take into reality. My friend got a samsung galaxy S duos as birthday gift from his father this year. But he was using 5800 till that evening.. after two weeks he is once again back to 5800 saying that this old machine still satisfies me rather than new. He feels that build and battery is not good in samsung. Inspite of having good hardware it fails to attract an old nokia user.. Have u ever used 5800 if not try to get ur hand on it. The real XPRESSMUSIC.:):)
Why in the hell would anyone want a phone these days that's not one of the three main OS's? And really, Android, since that's going to take over the market completely in the next 5 years...?
