symbian does'nt need huge processors for work...it just needs RAM for multitasking & 256mb RAM is sufficient.
guys u can check videos of n8 prototype on youtube and its never slow. "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X38v0S2Y548"
in fact its pre release HP and may undergo series of changes b4 coming in market...and then its gonna be KING.

[deleted post]Bada is still very unstable.
Today i went to Samsung store to test it out since i was too early for the appointment.
I tested the multi-task by opening around 5 to 6 apps.
It prompted the low memory box and ask me to close some apps. I tried to close some apps but it just don't close no matter how many times i press on the x button.
I have to go back to main menu and try to close them again then only it works.
In short, it is still very unstable.
I've used Symbian devices for so long times and never experience a problem closing an apps from multi-task function before.
In short, Symbian is more stable than Bada. No doubt about it.
[deleted post]Mr Aitoami, you are still here :P
So did you used N8?? How can you conclude it is slow?? BTW the picture quality of N8 is better than 250 euro Digicams. I dont understand your point?? You are expecting that N8 picture quality should be better than a 500 euro High end Digicam?? I guess you are coming from a Non cultured part of Earth.
Tawazz, 24 Jul 2010Nokia n8 would have been a great 2009 phone .the specs don't meet 2010 phones. eg 720p video w... moreFirst point: I have seen many video experts are praising Nokia to choose 25fps on N8, I'm not a expert. I also here that 25fps is standard in Europe.
Second Point: Can I ask how many widgets and application launcher can you use on 3 homescreen of F480i??
Third point: According to Symbian wiki page, symbian^3 also support Virtual memory.. And the Gpu on N8 can handle 720p and 12mp picture. It clearly suggest how powerful it is. If I'm not wrong even Samsung wave cant handle full 12mp images despite hummingbird processor. Btw I agree faster cpu = less lag even handling large files.
Ok now what do you say about 5mp camera on Galaxy S without flash?, even 90 euro Nokia X2 has it and with flash. What about cheap plastic build.? What about actual resolution of Galaxy S, which is 'just' some pixels more than N8 and on 4" (forgot the number, I guess if you search ' Galaxy S ' on search comment page, you will find it).? Galaxy S has only plus point of Super Amoled, Hummingbird processor and Android for some people.

N8 is full features power house.
Slow CPU topic is so so so old.
I am definitely going for N8 this time.

Nokia n8 would have been a great 2009 phone .the specs don't meet 2010 phones. eg 720p video with 25 frames per sec , even wave has 30 fps , 680 mhz proccesor way slow 1ghz would have been better. 256 ram adds more slowness 512 ram would be nice.3 home screens , +10 on android phones. my samsung f480i from early 2008 has 3 homescreens , same ram and processer as n8.which makes n8 a piece of crap phone to add to your museum. samsung galaxy s best smart phone out there
Nokia N8 officially will be released between Sunday 15th August and 29th August. confirmed by Nokia official distrbuters..
:D i really cant wait
Niraj, 24 Jul 2010To be honest, Dolphin Web browser on Wave is one of the best browser on a phone though it lack... moreI agree..
I saw some comments on wave page here in gsmarena that he broke his waves glass screen after he accidentally dropped it like "2 feet" high
[deleted post]To be honest, Dolphin Web browser on Wave is one of the best browser on a phone though it lacks on flash, But all in all Skyfire browser is the best.. Problem with wave is that surface of display is scratch resistant but not drop resistant, if you drop Wave; you will lost it, display will broke. As you know In N8 display is made of Gorilla Glass, which is known as strongest glass on Industry ;)
YJ, 24 Jul 2010Hey Niraj! Do you know minimum request of phone hardware to record/play full HD ? Now friend!As far as I know hd video recording is done by a seperate Gpu. N8 suppose to have Broadcom BCM2727 Gpu, which has VideoCORE 3.0 integrated system, which can play/record 720p hd videos and capture 12mp picture.. So all these stuff on N8 is done by Gpu not Cpu..
Btw I think to record Hd videos (720p) you also need atleast 600 mhz processor to record every frame perfectly.. ;)
In a simple words,N8 is very well balanced phone whereas the wave is not ! ;)
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2010i'd still go for the samsung wave; super amoled, 1gig processor, hd video,cheapper too! theres... more"12mp is too much for a mobile" why ? Bcuz ur wave doesnt ve a good camera :D ! Wave cant provide u inbuild 16gb,wave doesnt ve a good web browser with flash support, bada sucks whereas the symbian is an open source ! Wave is just an ugly,idiotic product 4m samsunga :D
Nokia should wake up.
They don`t have devices, which can compete to phones like Samsung Galaxy S.
