[deleted post]Typical borderline know it all who knows nothing..The n8 is faster than omnia hd by 80mhz but that is fast at full blast 600Mhz.The big thing is the n8 powerfull graphics hardware & that combination is much better than 1GHz cpu alone plus its better on the battery.
If you search for most powrfull gaming laptop for 800GBP it brings up alienware laptop m11 (i think )which has an 1.3Ghz proccessor,SO,on that basis its rubbish then????No it has 2 special dedicated graphics chip to do blisteringly fast gaming.
So to sum for the last time for thickos who do not use search option at bottom of gsmarenas page to find an answer to a question that may have already been answered.
Mobile A HAS 1.2ghZ PROCESSOR with integrated just so 2d graphics chip.
Mobile b has 600Mhz proccessor with 3d dedicated hardware chip plus integrated 2d/3d chip.
Mobile b would win on gaming,video smoothness etc if the programmer made use of the graphics chip.
Now why would i need 1.2 GHz for except for flattening the battery??,,well people will say for gaming but thats so untrue,the nokia n82 3d graphics chip helped supply the 30fps tv out output so again its a combination of the 2 not raw proccessing power.So gaming is better with graphics chip than just proccessing power!!!!
The nokia n96 achieved fantastic video playback and codec support due to a video decoder chip and had 14hrs music playback due to a dedicated audio chip..If the n96 used one of its 220 Mhz proccessors it would shorten the battery life and produce not very smooth video playback and reduced codec support.
So take you massive proccessor speeds and get yourself a basic computer science course and learn real life computing.
Last thing to help, A proccessor has fsb,apu,level 1 and 2 caches,timers,2d chips maybe 3d chips,just to name a few its a complex chip. It is not just a brain.Proccessor speeds can only be compared by using the same family of chips and its speed is NOT determined by GHz its DMIPS which used to be WMIPS that counts its calculations.
The graphics chip in general is used for crunching thru polygon after polygon at its basic level and can massively boost a proccessor speed than raw GHz alone.
I should just give up with people who SHOULD NOT be using smarfones and STILL reckon mobile fone shops should give a warning when selling smartfones to the general joe public PERIOD.
nokia needs to update this symbain 3 great phones but very bad os what is taken nokia so long and the phone lags also i have one and my friends have also but it is slow compared to other os out there symbain 3 is still in the stone age i am a nokia fan and nokia needs to make more better apps look at the apple store like nokia is not learning at all

Hay guys don't buy this phone better u go for android phone. I used n8 now I m using motor xt720 this is awesome phone.
Nokia took 1 & a half year more to launch n8 as compared to se satio the 12mpx competitor.
So it's natural that n8 will perform better than satio.
I would have considered n8 a winner if nokia would have launched that phone along with satio.
But nokia didn't bcoz it takes nokia many years more to create same technology.

So beta apps tends to be culprits for problems.
