bigboifab, 12 Jul 2013I cant believe nokia left the symbian belle os for windows platform.
As for Lumia, Nokia 808 ... morei cant believe in 2013 there are still people who doesnt aware that symbian is the cause of nokia fall down from no.1 phone manufactures.
true fans of nokia must known that first symbian released at 2002, how long symbian took to transform into included bigger expansion storage??
2002 nokia 9210 with 16mb mmc to 16gb in nokia 5800, it need 4, four yearssss....
it needs 6,six yearssss... to reach touch screen optimize (and still lag at N8 with belle, mehhh)
it needs 8 years to support multi touch...
it needs windowphone OS to finally having burst mode...(king of camera hu? the mighty pureview)
it needs 8 years to finally have multi homescreen...
symbian OS must be the longest mobile OS to develop modern fiturs, you can compare it with android or iOS or wp and see which OS driving modern mobile technology, and it is far from symbian.
most nokia fans still think if nokia put quadcore and 2gb ram symbian will perform slick fast and superb like ios, wp or jellybean android, but it will not.
because to symbian just not support it, symbian stuck so long with nHD which almost like forever, it doesnt support multicore CPU, i'm sure it probably not supported bigger ram than 1gb. limitation from the core it self.
if nokia want symbian to perform like modern smartphone they have to make new symbian from scratch and it will be not symbian anymore, building OS from scratch need lot of time and MONEY and nokia already behind because of their stubborn with symbian.
and if symbian still a valid option till this day or as functional as modern OSes, there still will be alot people who will buy and using it, right? but the facts no body cares anymore with limited OS.
it is a good move to choose wp, but i hope nokia will try jolla or mozilla OS or ubuntu touch, and forget symbian for good.
if today people complain only for simple think they used to do with symbian, WP will be there, just wait. it is only 3 years and you can see they bring more and more feature like a normal standart modern OS.
IF WP not there yet, dont complain and miss that symbian, because symbian is the true nokia killer, it took to long to develop one technology jump from 2002 to 2010, once iOS and android push hardware and software and internet to evolution, finnaly we can say bye bye to sms, to small storage, etc.
say no to symbian.
harry, 12 Jul 2013am big fan of nokia....bt Nokia plz com with a 5inch 1920*1080,400ppi screen,atleast 2gb ram,1... moreNokia's coming even better, 6'', 1080p, snapdragon800 quadcore, finger crossed for q3
Oh come on Nokia, not again! You make the same mistake every time. remember nokia n8!? First of all: No card slot, the phone uses 41 MP camera, so it'll take a lot of space to store the pics and video. adding to that some songs and the phone carries only 32GB (I know about cloud and skydrive but it all requires good net connection). Second, The processor, only 1.5 Dual-core. Most of the competitor are now running on quad-core, heck I've seen some chinese made phone on quad-core. it'll be much smoother on quad-core. I like nokia but the problem is they are always lagging behind on the smartphones market, they really have to rethink about their strategies otherwise I'm afraid it ain't gonna end well for them.
Gromblelord, 12 Jul 2013Hardly innovation Nokia 808 had this cam a while ago and that didn't really take off, and whil... moreDear bro..yes u r right.. But nokia worked quite very hard to innovate this 41mp cam technology for 4 years...thats they implemented it in Symbian. But we don't like Symbian..thus they gone for windows eco system. And they proved in couple of month...implemented those in windows...actually u have to be proud of a company innovation! Is that possible by any company even in a camera masters???? Windows is a quiet new OS..done this amazing job.. Is that possible in android or ios in a year..even both are very old. Pls welcome a innovation which are really doing for a human sense. Nokia always cares innovations which impress humans not for money. If they want money simply they can go for android. So be understand. And windows OS us well fit with lowest configuration where the other OS will die in that. I don't understand why these humans not welcome a innovations!! Anyhow for ur expect.. Soon Nokia will release a 4 core phone. Enjoy. Cool bro.
Wawater, 11 Jul 2013when will Nokia make a slim phone?.I love their OS but their phony so bulky;even heavy.I would like to see who would fit a 41 mp camera sensor in a phone slimmer or lighter dan this
am big fan of nokia....bt Nokia plz com with a 5inch 1920*1080,400ppi screen,atleast 2gb ram,1.7 quad core,nd again become the king of mobile market...
I cant believe nokia left the symbian belle os for windows platform.
As for Lumia, Nokia 808 is far better than it hands down.
I suggest Nokia to keep the symbian belle OS and keep improving it whilst it deals with WP.
Symbian belle is more exciting.
shut up trols, just imagine dat u have an S4 zoom n ur pocket while walking calmly :D
Can someone could tell me the price of this phone ��
msk95, 12 Jul 2013People keep talking about low specs come on guys don't act childish and stop the nonsense if h... moreAgree.From the day I was a child,NOKIA always produces good phones.Even the old 3310 is undefeatable by the others...Windows Phone doesn't lag coz...it's WINDOWS!!!!The smoothest operational system...not like Android...just making phones lags...even the Galaxy S4 lags...lolz
The Nokia Lumia 1020 That the Monster have everything but lack of memory slot which is essential for all mobile phone. For it may lose the popularity. by da way Radio doesn't need. I have to buy it now pls tell me anyone when it will reliese.
No java, no Adobe Flash player, no sd card slot, no hdmi or mhl , no wifi direct. This mobile (not smartphone) only good for die hard nokia fans.
This phone should be water proof so that we can totally say it is an improvement otherwise there should be a water proof case/accessories so we can use this phone underwater both for leissure or professional purpose.
OxyZ88, 12 Jul 2013DSLR 21mp, 1020 41MP, so what?
Can a DSLR get into your pocket?
Can a DSLR call your mom?
... morecan lumia 1020 take shoot like DSLR.......?
I don't think so....
So don't ever compare any phone with any DSLR.....
TechFact, 12 Jul 2013Man..anyone is beatings u to buy this..? Its a innovation.. ! If you don't want go to the one ... moreHardly innovation Nokia 808 had this cam a while ago and that didn't really take off, and while nobody is forcing me to buy this I was looking forward to it.
Anyway looks like Q4 will see quad and 1080p windows phones finally might be able to get one next year....
Do you really think this is worthy upgrade to the 920?
I have been a Nokia lover for many years...in fact, I own a Nokia smartphone right now and love it. The only difference between Lumia 1020 and Lumia 920 is the camera and RAM. This should have been called a Lumia 920i as this upgrade is an evolution not a revolution.
superb.. exellent.. magnificient.. cant wait it any more to come to philippines.. optimize os with perfect harware made by nokia.. spec is more advance to run WP8. in lumia 720 with only 512 ram has no lags and work flawless.. so this is beast.. think of android with quad core with lags.. thats is shamefull.. you simply rock my world nokia.. best innovation.. os is growing and apps is still developing and comming.. someday they will come to switch because they are now interesting. why are they here? why?
I've been looking for a phone that's more of a camera than a phone, and finally they've made one. The only thing I would wish is that it would have optical zoom instead of digital zoom. but this camera phone is perfect for people who travel a lot and don't like to keep track of many valuables and carry a lot of items like a phone, mp3 player, and a camera.
