Good battery life with the Android OS? You are kidding right? Battery life is one of the biggest drawbacks of and Android device. Don't say you are happy with it please. Otherwise the manufacturers may not give the necessary attention to the issue ! ! !

check this rev... moreI wasnt even going to buy a smartphone. I've tried Wave with Bada, few Android phones, iPhone 4. When I got to try a prototype of the N8 I was instantly sold.
I don't see why Meego and Symbian^4 in the future would effect Symbian^3, it's in very good shape out of the box currently. It has the right tools to stay very competetive cos of its shitloads of hardware features.
Apps in future will be made in Qt both for Symbian^4 and Meego, which the Symbian^3 already supports. The "low end" phones which you are talking about are devices like E7 and C6-01. They are cheaper yes but still VERY competetive smarphones.
Android needs a fair bit of development now but I agree it may have the best base on becoming maybe the best overall OS. However it's not that at the moment. Battery life is just about the biggest issue with mobile phones. I need a mobile phone, not a PDA I charge several times a day
So yes, Android will surpass S^3 one day. However, by that time, there's Meego and Symbian^4 so Android wont be competing with Symbian^3 then anymore.
Wheez, 02 Oct 2010Just about everyone who reads and writes alot about mobile phones has said the techradars revi... morei have an xperia x10 n i can use it for 1 n half to 2 days with normal use n if i start using it heavily it will last one day n considering the 4 inch size screen n 1 ghz processor i dont think thats a bad battery life n wigth 2.1 the battery life will improve by 30 % n then it would be really awesome n i dont think there is too much problem about battery life with android n my friend has htc desire 2.2 n its battery life is very good now
Can ppl define high end...High end means in features...in hardware...I think N8 is the most highend fone ever...with price of a mid range...so all u N8 haters go to your own forum and bark...Nokia has dne a fab job with the N8...

Perhaps we should email them.... moreIt seemed like a bug to begin with, those 100k hits seemed to came out of nowhere. I read this forum like 24/7 and it has never gotten that many hits before in that short time.
Wheez, 02 Oct 2010Come on, back your words up for once! What is Android so far far ahead of Symbian^3 in?
check this review n u will find it by urself.
if u use an android device after ur nokia n8 u will know it by urself but since u have bought the nokia n8 so u should enjoy it n i am not saying nokia n8 is a bad device but compared to android devices like htc desire, xperia x10, n many more android devices coming in future, like htc desire hd, n u know what nokia will do in future they are going to dump symbian for high end devices n only use meego for high end devices n keep symbian for low or mid end devices

He's complaining mainly about personal preferences there. He obviously likes android better himself. Which isnt a bad thing, Android is a GREAT OS. But at least as long as it sucks battery like crazy, it's worth 0 for me
AMANITA, 02 Oct 2010Itz our personal view ! I dont see anything ugly in symbian ! :pits ur personal view but according to experts symbian is lacking behind n u check techradar review for that.
[deleted post]even if nokia n8 becomes the best mobile what it has to do with me? i dont care
but it wont be the best just because of symbian n if it had been an android handset than it would have been worth buying..... i own an xperia x10 which is awesome but i think htc desire is one of the best mobile in the market now

Also, have you EVER used Symbian^3 or are you only judging cos the last Symbian wasnt good.
That's like saying Windows 7 sucks cos Windows Vista sucked.
Cmon, back up those claims or gtfo.
