Same battery as the N86, and yet a beefier processor and RAM.. and yet about double the longevity with one charge. Am I missing something or is S^3 a very battery-friendly OS?
Ashman, 27 Aug 2010In terms of CPU power, not a lot of difference in 450Mhz and 600 Mhz or 680 Mhz ones... if you... moreNo, it does make a huge difference. Ever over-clocked a GPU before? If you.ve done so, you should notice a significant improvement in performance for each 50 Mhz. Same applies for phone processors. Compare a 500 Mhz Motorola DROID & 600 Mhz HTC legend/aria, you'll feel the difference. BTW, the N9 will probably have the same PowerVR SGX 530 GPU as N900 if it runs on an OMAP 36xx chipset, or else it'll have SGX 540.
this is suite phone to replace my nokia 5230!
i can't afford the N8,so this is my choice!
hope this phone out soon! ;D
C7 AND N8 are using old arm11 structure cpus nowdays arm8 is successor of arm11 and arm8 is going to be succeed by arm 9 so pls nokia put newer cpus which are better in battery consumtion and in power.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2010if this phone is going to be cheap. I will buy. or should I get the Sony X8?sony ericsson x8 has very soothing looks.. But the screen seems to be just a little small for watching videos.. Plus the android version installed at the moment is 1.6 which is very old. Unless 2.2/2.1 comes with X8 it's just not worth it, as it won't allow a lot of basic features like, bluetooth file transfers, flash enabled browsing.. Plus another drawback in X8 is it's got 1 widget/screen which gets annoying at times.. Plus android itself (even 2.2) is known to have video playback issues. Its not yet fully developed for multimedia features. Even the camera is just 3.2 megapixel and the UI of the camera is very basic. Android has the potential, but it's yet to make a mark, maybe Gingerbread (Android 3.0) be able to add some multimedia functionality and bring life to the OS.
If you can neglect the minor issues that I mentioned, its a good phone, and you do get the advantage of Android app store. And ya, the phone looks are really good..!
The guys from gsm arena aré totaly wrong these phone its not resistive its capacitive with multitouch and for those whos asking about the gpu all the new s3 are gonna have the same cpu and gpu and capacitive screens the diference between these c7 and n8 its 12 mpxl hdmi port and xenón flash thats it beside that everything its the same
if this phone is going to be cheap. I will buy. or should I get the Sony X8?
it looks like N9.i think it would be better than x6.touch fones of nokia r very slow and hanged.may be this is better one

NO WAY in hell it c... moreIn terms of CPU power, not a lot of difference in 450Mhz and 600 Mhz or 680 Mhz ones... if you see and compare desktop computers. Single or dual or quad cores make a difference. Now I wonder why Nokia is so stingy with memory (RAMs). Just throwing in a 512mb would have made so much of a difference. Now if it's GPU power you're talking about... what is the GPU used in this phone? I'm talking about the capability of Cell Phones to compete with Netbook computers.
This phone isn't too great ..
If this phone has features like n9 (not design) i will buy it directly :(
Ashman, 27 Aug 2010With the hardware specs not bumped up too much... I'm sure the Nokia X6 can also handle Symbia... morewhat are you nuts? X6 can hardly handle symbian 1. its too laggy and slow. NO WAY in hell it can handle Symbian 3.
X6 would have been better with a 600 mhz CPU and at least 256 RAM. the way it is is just crap. been using it for 3 months and already sick of it. need to upgrade.
r 3 b 3 l, 27 Aug 2010Dude, no s^1 mobile can handle s^3. They don't have gpu which i doubt s^3 can live without.Well as it is the C7 does not have HD videos - so do you think the S^3 is so much reliant on the GPUs. Forget the videos, the other stuff... I'm sure the other phones should be able the handle.
