Camera not like N8
If it had been done wi... moreall the time people keep comparing nokia's camera to n8 nd thn say tht it sucks..but for once just compare it with any other smartphone available in the market...galaxy s has a 5 mega pixel camera without a flash..so basically the camera is crap bec almost 90% of the times we need a flash while taking pics..BB never had a grtt camera..sony gives u nice cam but it dosnt give u video calling option..
nd people keep saying abt the os...tell me which android phone gives u everythng,i.e, a gud camera, good sound and a good qwerty keypad..infact apart frm desirez nd milestone none of the android phones give u a qwerty keypad..fine thr will be people who dont need a qwerty, but thn thr r hell lot of people who really need it..nd what cool android applications people keep talking about..it doesnt even have folders..u cant store thngs or hide thngs if u want to...nd symbian has all the imp applications anyone will ever really need to use..nobody buys a cell for some stupid farting app..nd the navigation feature in nokia is best of thm all...so give me one good reason for buying android seriosuly aprt frm saying tht its the latest in thing nd is really cool!!

cant understand guys why symbian is going down(rather being killed for WP7 x... moreWell, I been thinking about which phone to go for and I think I have made up my mind, still not sure lol.
First, I will wait till tomorrow hoping nokia announces a meego phone.
Second, I don't see a point of me getting this E7 as I don't feel it as a big upgrade to my n97, maybe it is, I just feel it to be very similar.
Third, since I own the x10 and not a big fan of x10 no point of getting the arc, I mean come on sony, after a year there are improvements for sure but nothing significant changed?
I want something new and different. Maybe even a brand I haven't used before, samsung gs2 is a good choice, and I really want this Social hub feature only for samsung is interesting, though, as it gives you the opportunity to connect to the people in your life via various ways. Mail, chat, video chat, all incorporated into a single app.
If I go for sony, xperia xplay it is, I just hope nokia shows the meego tomorrow.
AnonD-570, 16 Feb 2011hope they will keep devloping symbian as u read somwhere :-) well about the WP7 its most likel... morehi there..
I had N8,C7 and C6-01..i luv N8 more..try N8 ...i have use it a lot as my primary phone...no problem so far except sometimes it restart acossionally due to so many unclosed apply.new up-date release just announce may fix it..but just install taskmanager to overcome it...
ryan, 16 Feb 2011slow down mate..there is nothing to lose.. sincerely.Nokia did not dump Symbian-their still h... morehope they will keep devloping symbian as u read somwhere :-) well about the WP7 its most likely to be the next big thing in the smartphone os market...b4 going for N8 i was thinking about buying samsung omnia 7 which is a WP7 device from samsung...so i did bit research about it and came to know about its limitations...so i droped out the plan of buying it...but like every other previously unsucssesfull os it will improve update by update...so we have to wait for that..lets see how it goes...though i must admit i quite liked it UI wise,overall look of WP7 is very proffecional...lets just wait and watch how it'll turn out,hope for the best...cheers :-)
Camera is FIXED-FOCUS?? How rotten is that? I own a Nokia N900 and Im really satisfied with it, but I highly doubt whether Ill change, especially to this!! How corny can you get with an 8MPXL camera, if there's no auto-focus??
AnonD-570, 16 Feb 2011totally agree mate....if android could become a battery saver then nothing like it...really no... morethanks mate..
May be we need to wait next year....perhaps.
just wait MWC2012..hehehehhehe

sincerely.Nokia did not dump Symbian-their still have development on it for future.read the news. I have use this phone before Dopot,HTC touch HD, Touch PRo 2..WM 5/6/6.5..Now there is WP7 and it new.Never have this device before.I really happy nokia will joint WP7.At lease I have opportunity to play around WP7.May be next year perhaps.because I believe other company had wm phone.Now let Nokia show their talent and skill to polish WP7..dont expect to much for first model..because their still new.Still learning.I believe it will improve time to time..like their do with symbian s60v3/5 Symbian^3 or S40 device.Just give them opportunity.Cant wait for nokia WP7..heheeh The thing i like nokia most,there always had firmware update to fix bug..that the good news...
Sincerely i had buy N900 meego, and by next day I sell it back..no need to explain why.you know what i meant.
For phone selection, I have advice for u..read user review.they will talk about their experience with the device.The device you said is still new.not release yet.dont be to ambitious.make you headache.except you have more money to spent.
nokia should recently improve their mobile feature.sorry to say nokia ur camera still poor when sony e has a strong camera and video recorder.sound still bad now.when it’s dolby digital.graphics and menu view also need improvement.
I am worried about Nokia adopting WP7 as their operating system. We all know WP7 is not the most usable OS in the market. The new CEO is making a big mistake and NOKIA is making a mistake in appointing him as CEO (unless he is a family member or he is one of Nokia's biggest shareholder). Just one look at him, I know he is not the kind who needs a smartphone in his daily life. He must be a least computer nerds if not computer addict to lead. He just makes and receive call. Sending email will be his secretary, he won't know how to send emails from smartphones. Therefore, he won't know the kind of phones which is required by the market.
What he should have done is to educate his software enginners, hardware designers, system engineers to polish the current SYMBIAN OS and make it even better. I guarantee, a lot of Nokia employees will be losing their jobs very soon especially the engineers, since Nokia will just wait for the software given by Microsoft. Nokia just produce the phone and that leaves Nokia's own engineers with nothing to do.
ryan, 16 Feb 2011i agree with you mate...i have samsung galaxy tab..love the spect and OS but very disapponted ... moretotally agree mate....if android could become a battery saver then nothing like it...really no other os can compete with android then...but i dont see it happening in coming years !!! the way these smartphone componies are increasing the ram on there phones and other specs as well...i dont think is possible !!!but u never know,so lets hope for the best !!! :-)
@mike and ryan
cant understand guys why symbian is going down(rather being killed for WP7 x-/) after serving so loyaly to nokia for so many years now...when ios and android wernt even born...instead of devoloping symbian and making it as eyecandy as android nokia has simply opt for to leting it go just like that !!! symbian was never a faliure u moron steph...u and ur devlopers were !!! and today where u are is becoz of early symbian smartphones.
i dont think theres any other os available as battery consuming as symbian was...i wish nokia could have devloped it properly...fingers crossed for meemo,meego...hope they will survive and come victorious in this nokia-wp7 summit.
and mike even i was so exited to have my hands on this oversized N8 with qwerty(E7) !!! and...now we both are sharing the same dilema...weather to go for LG optimus,xperia arc or SGS-II !!!
m personally in fevour of SE arc simply becoz of its hardware just hate plastic and cheap feel of my "X" SGS !!! even SE arc is all plastic but atlist its not that glossy one which samsung use...it has matt finished on its battery cover so far...(i mean u know how many changes takes place before actual launching !!) but then again SGS-II with 1GB ram and full HD recording facin8s me !!! lets see mate still one month to go for their launch,fingers crossed !!!do let me know ur choice as well and any other options u can think of.cheers :-)
AnonD-570, 15 Feb 2011m in love with the NOKIA hardware...i have used many androids so far but beside my i phone 3gs... morei agree with you mate...i have samsung galaxy tab..love the spect and OS but very disapponted with battery power consumption...i do love more my N8 and C7....i use it day to day ..never worried about battery power..i just hopping that symbian^3 will be smooth like android....or perhaps android can be more battery saver because it os is perfect..if their can solved this problem..android will be the best...neverless for this time being N8 still the best in overall performance..just waiting e7 to release in my country to replace my c7...
why u nokia always delay....i hate to wait for so long....?????
as much as I hate trojan elop for pushing nokia into what americans call ecosh*tstem (hello US, there is a world out there), I'll still support 'em.
AnonD-570, 15 Feb 2011m in love with the NOKIA hardware...i have used many androids so far but beside my i phone 3gs... moreI do agree with u.
I myself have been using bb torch currently, my 2nd phone is the n97 as well as the sony x10.
I have been using symbian since a very long time, n97 is probably my 10th nokia symbian device, but the x10 is my first sony ericsson as well as my first android phone, also the bb is my first ever bb.
My experience so far, symbian is the best for everyday use making calls, notes, calender,
x10 android is fast, and great for taking pictures, sleek design, gets attention.
bb the best messenger phone so far.
My next phone, I am pretty lost between E7, xperia play xperia arc and galaxy s 2.
I think processor of E7 doesn't perform well. It has same issue as N8. Nokia please seek alternat of Symbian.
symbian doesnt use so much power as android so a 680mhz is equal to 1ghz android.Although the camera is bad and screen res but good quality and design unlike samsung and lg phones.and symbian isnt that crappy cuz i have se vivaz pro and I can unpack rar files,download torrents,read pdf files and so on.still android is a better OS than
I would have bought this phone if Nokia would have included the Fm transmitter and micro SD card slot,this phone should have had N8 hardware plus the keyboard phone.They can and should build a N8 with real keyboard for we symbian lovers. Nokia should be able to make symbian,android and wp7 phones if the want to be leaders.I'm vex they don't have any new phones to show,what in the world they been doing for the past year.Fire the people at the top , not the bottom.
