Anonymous, 01 Oct 2010have u ever though why android fanboys say that symbion sucks n is ugly??? before thinking abo... moreya because its all about live wallpaers and eye candy stuff who hardly know what is smart phone..u know why iphone is famous ?it dont have any widgets no live wallpapers and many more missing but still people line up to buy...it doesnt mean everyone is smart phone users who knows about OS very well..people just know that android has 1ghz cpu and 512 RAM ..so indirectly everyone think phone is very good..but android needs high cpu where as symbian is light OS..so all compare with with 1gh cpu and high RAM where android battery sucks big time..no go and figure it out..
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2010i think u cant get my point as u seem to be a loyal nokia n8 fan.
i am a fanboy but of alo... moreLesson #1:
Nobody said that Symbian will out do any other OS. Heck, the N8 was never designed to do just that. It was designed to be unique in it's own right. Not to be reviewed and compared to other OS's. If that were the case then they would not have launched this device in the first place. If these guy's had to be fair, then review the phone in it's own right. What it was meant to be and how does it perform to meet that criteria. It is not designed to be an iPhone killer nor an Android killer. It is a powerfull tool that "FITS A PURPOSE" and would be judged by others here as being "FIT FOR USE" to that degree that it adds "QUALITY & VALUE" in a persons life. Go do some reading on Quality management. We the buyers would hence make that decision to this regard. What adds value to you? Fancy, glitsy phones with nice visual effects to top that off? I guess so cos that is what Android and iPhone no doubt do very well. I must say they are rather impressive OS's. "FIT FOR USE", i dont think so as Quality is deemed as in the "EYE OF THE BEHOLDER". and most people here would stand by me on this as being just that....non-value adding in my life. I therefore would not consider Glitsyness etc to be the only aspect that makes or breaks a phone but to others in other forums, maybe.
After my meeting......Lesson #2
Good morning again peeps!
One thing I'd like to say about comparing iPhone and Android phones. I think it's perfectly OK to compare them even if the price ranges arn't the same cos N8 doesnt have to shame the tiniest bit.
Naturally though when you shift off emphasis from the CPU to the GPU, you get slightly different results for "strenghts and weaknessess" but the N8 does not have to shame in benchmarks compared to the iPhone 4 or Galaxy S, really.
And even if it did, you can remember that neither of those will come even come with the features of the N8, really. I don't need the fastest or prettiest myself, I want the one that can do most :)
For 3 years of waiting, the real iPhone killer is here! The Nokia N8 is the real super giant device that will steal Apple's market share.
Symbian^3 is back! It's a huge improvement with more than 250 features included.
Android OS is also leading this year! I hope that Android can overcome the whole new Symbian OS.
Let's see which operating system will dominate the smartphone race in the near future!

Anonymous, 01 Oct 2010i havent used galaxy S..... but xperia x10 and htc desire doesnt lag at all.....n anyways lagg... morexperia x10 doesnt lag?..oh u got to be joking ..what about desire battery life? all android phones have poor battery..i charge my phone twice a day which is really frustrating..
For all the guys bashing each other on what mobile OS is the best, here are a few points to ponder:
1) Android OS code is still not fully optimised. Hence the need for high-end CPUs and bags of RAM.
2) As a result of using high-end processors the strain on the battery will be greater plus over heating of the casing will be a problem. That is why the latest Hi-spec Android phones are moving to larger form factors. Ex: HTC Desire HD. But do these qualify as mobiles, in the truest sense of the word?? Are we prepared to charge the battery a few times everyday??
3) IOS, Symbian on the other hand have been optimised with Symbian being the best in terms of CPU, RAM utilization. This results in optimum battery usage. Therefore, when comparing the CPUs, RAM, etc. (basically hardware) it is essential to consider the OS running on the phone. This applies to all electronic gadgets. Ex: A core i5 laptop with 4GB DDR 3 RAM would be considerably slower than one with the same specs and running Windows 7.
4) The main problems with the s60 ver. 5 of symbian were the lack of hardware acceleration and responsive touchscreens resulting in a frustrating user experience with previous Nokia touchscreen offerings. These have been overcome in N8.

Review doesn't mean comparing,which is done by the tech radar team. The correct review is done by gsmarena. And for God's sake don't compare N8 to iPhone or the Galaxy S,these phones are far expensive then the N8. Obviously if u pay more you'll get more and better features. Look what N8 provides in its price. And if you really want to compare,then compare N8 to the phones that are in the same price range.

u got to be kidding me asking me what i am doing here
Why do people love iPhone 4?
1. It's because of poor signal strength and antenna defect.
2. It's because of the impressive Retina Display with ridiculous yellow spots on the screen.
3. It's because of the childish user interface. (apple, who do you think will use your phones? Are your target consumers children?ha ha ha funny!)
4. It's because of poor multitasking. Symbian OS is much better!
Now you know? What are you waiting for? Go! Grab iPhone 4 now and enjoy those annoying features.
For those iPhone fanatics, don't force NOKIA to imitate those defects!
