I think it has been generally accepted that there is no perfect smartphone. It mainly depends on one's needs. So if your needs are that of a fast processor with slick graphics, better go for Android/iOS. If you need a great camera, simple multitasking with decent no-nonsense UI, then go for N8! We are the consumers with the right and options to CHOOSE. There is enough variety for all types of users. So why fight?
[deleted post]Can you tell me what phone it is excatly? I was looking for it but could't find. Some aspects I really like andriod, but what most people say main disadvantage of symbian is it's slow (which is not really right) and that the menu's are complicated, while I really like the structured menu's with lots of usefull apps underneath. It's wrong to say android is the best for everyone, it's not. By the way, if a great android phone will release with even more features that I like about N8, I will buy that, Im not nokia fanboy or something, I just like N8 best of the phones available at the moment.
Guys please don't fight here :)
And all N8 bashers, please refrain from posting here. This is a forum to discuss about the N8, not to bash it!!!!!
And personally I think the N8 is a pretty darn good phone. So if ur jealous, well no one can help u :)
Its the best camera/multimedia phone out there. Period.
Been using this phone from 5 days now. Amazing phone guys! Really. I've been using N73 from the past 3 years and I know what lags are and how slow Symbian can get. So I wasn't having awesome expectations from this phone on the UI front. But Symbian^3 is really very good. I have never used Android & iOS but seeing from all the videos online, I do admit that the eye-candy on those two platforms is definitely better. N8 on the other hand filled in all my requirements perfectly - very good reception, awesome camera, great music and simple smooth multitasking experience.
Another thing- I'm from Mumbai, India. My handset says "made in China". But I seriously don't detect any flaws in the device, contrary to popular belief that China manufactured handsets are defected. May be some were. Luckily there isn't anything wrong with my device.
Definitely go for N8, if your requirements are similar to mine!
distributor, 22 Oct 2010Xperia X10 not going beyond 1.6 HAHA , look vidoe on youtube NOOB . already is 2.1 .
... moreIt maybe is the best OS for the majority of people, but there is no Android phone on the market with excellent camera, good battery life, and some other exclusive features N8 has to offer, in a solid aluminum body.
This is why I choose for N8, not because it's not android. Also, I don't would love android much more as symbian^3. So go and play with your android phone and stop making no sense posts on N8 pages.
it is not the fst 12 mp fone year 2010 fst is samsung pixon 12 and then se satio. it is too late in the market go and review the samsung wave u will find it cool thanks.
Mark, 22 Oct 2010You can select which one works best for you. Xperia X10 not going beyond 1.6 HAHA , look vidoe on youtube NOOB . already is 2.1 .
ANDROID is growin so fast , and is best OS .
distributor, 22 Oct 2010phone is nice but symbian suck .
seriously is more noice about ANDROID & WINDOWS... moreYou mean more Noise? I doubt it. Seeing smartphone sales and profit are up for Nokia, it is the most popular brand on most sites, including this one, and the fact that Nokia & Apple are the only companies that will provide support and updates for their devices without someone in between causing trouble. Since Nokia announced they will evolve Symbian and all S^3 devices will be upgraded, they are the only ones to do this together with Apple.
The difference with Android is, everybody has a skin. If google comes with an update, the skin and customisation will need to be updated as well. That was fine when there are 2 or 3 models for each manufacturer. But, not anymore.
With some manufacturers also supporting WP7, you can bet your arse that Samsung & HTC will run out of resources to update all their devices when MSFT & Google come with updates. We see it already. 2.2 delayed for Galaxy S. Xperia X10 not going beyond 1.6, maybe 2.1. Then after that, Oracle is going to kill Android. It will be messy.
There are only two safe choices for the future. Nokia & Apple, because they both "own" the entire stack.
Yesterdays news is amazing. I really changes the game, and should make S^3 device owners really happy.
