Android developers build games using an enhanced format of Java (I'm overly simplifying this, but android fanboys are incapable of understanding anything more technical) that can't use around 40% of the processing power available (sometimes even more). Android will never be a great gaming platform, even with the upcomin PSP phone (which is bound to be an epic fail given SE's track record). The NFS Shift on android has compressed textures, and file size is half of that of Symbian 3. Angry birds on android is missing many effects. And did I mention the relentless battery drain and how many games have performance issues across various devices? Angry birds play fine on Galaxy S, it lags and crashes on both ZTE blade and HTC Wildfire. So much for a gaming platform!
mac5, 08 Nov 2010Yeah... I already admitted that n8 is better than se satio but what about massive 1 & a ha... moreYea, all they did in those 18 moths-
1. Build a brand new O.S. that's fully HW accelerated.
2. Made an aluminium unibody construction over Satio's crappy plastic build.
3. Added true HDMI support.
4. Incorporated the largest sensor ever on a phone.
5. Redefined image processing algorithms by going for natural looks rather than full-forced post-processing.
6. Made an AMOLED display that's actually visible under sunlight.
7. Improved battery performance massively.
8. Added USB OTG support.
9. Added a class leading GPU.
10. Fine-tuned haptic feedback that enhances user experience.
11. Provided the best GPS unit on any phone.
12. Added true Dolby 5.1 plus support.
You need any more? Man, your trolling utterly sucks...

That is because it is necessary, since Android is inefficient and can't properly use Graphics processors. High speed CPU is also really going to kill battery.
Its pretty obvious that Android doesn't actually benefit from faster processor it only makes it able to compete. Take NFS Shift for example that is available to Symbian, iOS and Android. The Symbian and iOS versions look great and run smooth, the Android version isn't as smooth and doesn't look the same.

1 & a half year is a great amount of time.
snonre, 08 Nov 2010Same goes wuth other phones
Want to install cracked games and apps on iphone - u jailbreak ... morewell... over clocking on android is not a problem bcoz they r already fast & over clocking is just an extra functionality.
It's not something that u do to overcome problem in ur phone.
i try many times that n8 is many problems.....hang,auto restart,charged when unplug the charger n the most funny is the cell cover reflected.......cannot plug in the charger.....
I am planing to buy a nokia n8. Can u pls advice for this phone's performance, OS, touch sense etc.....
Thanks in advance.
N8widgets is only good for music player, time, profile,and calender, and shortcut, would be great is they double the of widgets to let us read new email and sms, note upcoming calender,
why nokianot listen,
workhard on softeare, many people badmouth nokia for crapoy softeare,
btw , the chonese made videoplayer called umplayer can play 720p rmvb on n97mini, mkv as well
dee you em bee, 08 Nov 2010it has xenon flash which is not meant for video lighting as it would burn out if it did.
look... moreWhats with all all the ppl askin for video light ?
even dedicated camcorders dont have one?
mac5, 07 Nov 2010Dude...
Nokia took 1 & a half year more to launch n8 as compared to se satio the 12mpx co... morethe difference between Satio and Nokia N8 is that Satio is still old symbian s60V5, but the Nokia N8 is Symbian 3, and THAT took it more time to get it to the market.
satio interface is CRAPPY, just like N97 with the resistive screen.
The N8 on the other hand is a Breeze. and with the updates to roll out, it will only get much better.
Also, its great that Nokia made an OS that runs on mid range specs, rather than make an os and pump up the hardware for performance
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010why did nokia leave out video light it would of made this phone so complete like the n86 good ... moreit has xenon flash which is not meant for video lighting as it would burn out if it did.
look who's getting dumber here. lol
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010Well...

Want to install cracked games and apps on iphone - u jailbreak it
want faster processor on andoird phones - u overclock it with third party apps
remove lag from galaxy s with eclair software - install lagfix.
So what if the n8 has those probs, every phone on earth has their own probs too. And there is where the third party apps and software update comes :)
snonre, 08 Nov 2010All can be solved using spb shell, opera and software update :pWell...
Everytime we have to rely on 3rd party applications to solve the problems but when nokia is gonna bring a phone that is problem free.
Solving problems by 3rd party applications SUCKS !!!
snonre, 08 Nov 2010In reply to all of your post:
Seems like you have been using android for quite some time, a... moreWell you're wrong here.
If you use Symbian^3 before, it's pretty much the same as S60v5 except they polished it and changed some layouts.
The "Widgets" are not practical, I don't know what they were thinking.
Some of their folders are shown as icons... sometimes you can't tell which are folders and which are applications itself.
As for the on-screen qwerty keyboard... they should have made qwerty for portrait mode as well.
They should have input more power into the N8 not because of the light OS, but for web browsing.
It's not that Symbian's appeal is affecting the users, it's the practicality and intuitiveness that makes the OS great.
I bought a n8 & I tested it's touchscreen responsiveness & ui fastness with my already bought galaxy s.
In n8 sometimes touchscreen don't register touches & ui responds late after the screen has been touched.
But in galaxy s touch anything from any way it will 100% register the touch & ui moves along with the touch, even faster than iphone 4.
Camera is much better in n8 as it's 12mpx compared to 5mpx in galaxy s but video rec. is much better in galaxy s giving superior results to n8 .
In galaxy s there hasn't been a hanging or restarting issue in 3 months of use while in n8 it's been just 9 days & it's already giving me serious restarting issues.
It seems that n8 isn't fully baked.
Screen of galaxy s is much superior than n8. Pixel density is just great in galaxy s while n8 cries for pixel density.
Super amoled screen of galaxy s looks super great as compared to amoled screen of n8.
There is also a serious issue with n8 camera as it can't handle moving objects or little shake properly & spoils the image quality. Even the cheap budget cameraphones can handle a shake.
Gaming is much better in galaxy s as it is equipped with best gpu ever.
And galaxy s is much slimmer than n8.
Browser is uncomparable in galaxy s as after the 2.2 update my galaxy s is running full adobe flash player 10.1 while browser in n8 is the same old slow & lagging without full flash support.
My galaxy s also supports DIRECT WI-FI (a future technology which will end the era of old bluetooth) while n8 don't support it.
And the biggest problem in n8 is it's same old pathetic symbian while android is out of this world !!!
