As we all know google had released androids code a long time ago. Like linux ubunto we can modifie android as we like. But with symbian we can't do it. I'm not a programmer but my cousin is. I've seen him working on both the platform. The interesting matter is it's very hard for the symbian apps to make it support all type of phones. But with android it's not that hard........

It's true that x6 and c6 has 434 mhz cpu but newer phone like c5, e5, 6720, 6760 etc. phones have 600 mhz cpu. E5 got 256 mb ram too. And now-a-days most of the releasing nokia smart phone has 600 mhz and 256 mb ram. And i don't get it Wht's d use of rom in mobile. I've never seen anyone use it. I think i've made my point clear. Next version of Symbian is gonna release very soon. So just wait and watch.............

after waisting my pricious time i buy x6 8gb
and recommend all my c6 lovers to not waiting more bcoz it is not comming in next 3 more months

The reason why Android has so much more apps than Symbian is that it is much harder to make apps for symbianplatform than androidplatform. That is 1 huge reason why Nokia goes to Meego instead of symbian in their future n-series.
I see a lot of discussion for Galaxy 3 and C6. Galaxy 3 is missing on GPU so high end games cannot be played here. Also a whole load of stuff at the android market is unavailable for this phone because of the resolution and also it is also missing the qwerty keyboard.
C6 with symbian is ++ bcoz of the keyboard but symbian cannot be compared with Android as Android is far more versatile in terms of usability and features (not considering Galaxy 3 because of the resolution and missing GPU).
The verdict as per me is if u buy C6 or the Galaxy 3 today, you will definately regret it and also probably change your device within the next 3 months. So buy a Android 2.2 compatible phone with minimum 3.5 screen and GPU for games and hey Android has flash 10.1.
shakeela, 18 Aug 2010I think this is waste model... No wireless FM NO torchlite If ur ewquirement is flahs light and fm, thwrw are many cheap phones avail in range of 1000-2000 bucks. y look at hi end models like c6?
ya... its womderful mobile with many features.... i gonna planned to buy thi cute mobile... enjoy....
Cant argue with the minimum hardware requirements ... android is more powerfull
true ..... developing apps in android is much more hassle free than symbian .... and people who think android is new should think about the fact that the android market has several times more number of apps than the total number of symbian apps made uptil now
agree with nitish , ankur ... several symbian games have been ported to android but no android game has been ported to symbian till date
guyz i'm a app developer myself and i'll tell you this .....android can handle heavy apps while symbian cant .... and i've noticed the fps rendering difference in symbian and android too ...symbian blurts out at 10fps .... and with the 2.2 update ... android gives 60fps !!! see the video on the android 2.2 website u'll see....
@random guy.......what do you mean "versatile" ??? android runs all platforms that symbian runs and lots more too ...... since htc evo 4g is running android 2.1 i guess u mean it doesnt run flash ... well 2.2 does...android is far more versatile
