everytime i install apps and games in N81, it always give me an option where to install to sdcard or phone memory, isn't that a standard function symbian, right?
and it gives me also the option where to store the messaging files either the card or in the phone. well most of my installation and sms were located in the sdcard and it never give problem on that sort....
why did sum1 bring up on low memory for apps and games in N8 for about 138MB, it just don't matter I think as a symbian user we had already the option to install it in the sdcard while that option is just recently/officially introduced in the Froyo in android os.

If Symbian is not a great OS, do you think Samsung will make use of it in their flagship devices?
Thanks for re-affirming Symbian's capability. :)

It is normal for every other mobile devices in the market.
Thus, it is not right to call it an "issue". This is a suggestion.
You can raise this suggestion to any phone company of course.
Engineer Man, 06 Jul 2010For some unknown reason when I upgraded to the OVI Maps Version 3.1/3.2 from Version 3.0 46mb ... moreDid you ever personally raise this issue to an official Nokia representative?
Did you get any answer from them? I believe they are more willing to answer all these questions for you in details. Try Mr. Damian Dinning. He is very responsive in answering client's question.
Well, I think i will found out when i get the N8 on my hand. Cause I didn't encountered any of such problem after so many Symbian devices (with much lesser c: internal memory on board) i used before this.
For some unknown reason when I upgraded to the OVI Maps Version 3.1/3.2 from Version 3.0 46mb phone memory went down to 42mb. Then here & now, location services, Nokia email all used more taking me down to 35mb of free memory now. Even with Web browser temp cache cleared. I'm looking at what else can be moved safely from C:\ without causing problems & taking the memory back upto to a decent 46mb. I'm thinking of getting rid of something. Simple helper files & such... This is the issue I want to raise. All these programs & content should be installed by default to another partition, the phone having more C:MEM or having the install option to choose to send install to MicroSD. But OTA or NSU don't usually by default give you this choice. Instead you watch your already limited lowly amount Phone memory you have left decrease & decrease to nothing. Ok I've had my rant.
Yes the apps I was referring to moving from C: was individual C:MEM OS only program & their contents getting larger & reducing MEM on C: (5800XM) This is content that couldn't be moved to another memory card. Instead they occupied the phone memory. I don't know whether it can be moved without causing problems to the MicroSD card. Programs such as OVI Maps Program & content (maps),the new location services program, here & now, Nokia Email, which new iteration uses more & more C: memory leaving less free memory.
Dear friends:Ithink All in one mobile is n8 and iwill buy it please tell me if there is any problem with this mobile.
When using the music player, when you unplug the headphones does the music pause?
Because i have a n86, and when the headphones are removed accidentally, it automatically starts playing the music on the phone speaker, disturbing people arround me...
Annoying... Such an expensive phone should have the option to do that. I hope n8 doesn't have this issue..

on my s60 samsung g810 i can install all programs on microsd, it has 112.4M ram of which 69.6m is free. i've even had over 20 apps running, including 5 java games and that was when i first encountered memory errors. so s^3 should be able to cope with 256m ram, and installing all your programs on removable or fixed memory is always an option
Engineer Man, 05 Jul 2010Actually I have seen memory full errors popping up in some of the preview vids but these were ... morethey really need to fix that problem don't know how they will but they need to
it made a bad impression on the phone already from this prototype
but they still have 2 months to fix this problem and others like that horrid scroll bar
it shouldn't be their if they have kinetic scrolling already
they MUST have it REMOVED it's looking unattractive in this beautiful recreation of symbian
Well S^3 has a new revamped & improved code Micro kernel. The OS now has a Hardware Abstract Layer which alone will allow the OS to more coherently integrate support of various technologies to run within S^3 & newer 4 + OS's.
The Qt platform certainly opens the OS to any developer, third party vendor, operator, & the community developers. Qt works with webkits that allow more widgets which are built to work with Android or other platform to run on S^3. Surprising how powerful Qt really is.
Again Virtual memory could be a first for S^3 which should help. I do have another gripe. Android OS let's the programmer define the actual size/shape of a widget & allows you to move them anywhere onscreen. You can also allow app shortcuts from the homscreen. Symbian foundation need to integrate this type of customization into the framework of the developer tools. Qt might allow this.
But 256mb is twice as much as my Nokia 5800 for instance. So the general apps that we use the most, how much memory this time round do they use. I'd like to see several of most memory intensive tasks running & see how much mem they use & how much is free.
How much memory do each of the widgets 18 across three homescreens plus wallpapers, live animated wallpapers & other running apps actually use at the stage of fimrware currently. IF S^3 is supposed to be more efficient with memory ie. smaller apps, programmes less processes less memory more free memory. Also does the GPU share some of the sysster RAM or does it use it's own memory? These are all things I'd like to know since S^3 implements more visual eye candy. This is going to effectivly use more memory than S60 5th edition. Unless like I said they can reduce the memory footprint for all apps & the general OS hungryness & less processes. I think it will be worser than S60 for this reason but how much so.
Actually I have seen memory full errors popping up in some of the preview vids but these were probably BETA, alpha, pre alpha tests running lots of debugging soft in hte background. I personally have an issue with the amount of phone memory available. Although with phones like the BADA samsung Wave 2GB & 390mb us user space left. I argue that the user space is going to be used by OS programs which will use it & lower the amount of memory available. Unless they figure out how to implement another partition or move the S^3 OS programmes to another memory space other than C:PHONE such as. Allow S^3 to take advantage of plenty of MEM as much as android or more. Create a few paritions & allow mapping of OS programmes to use a seperate but same amount of memory space or to just use a external memory card to store them on. I heard Android are working on are or were currently in the middle of implementing such things. Personally 150 odd free space is something to worry about. Since S^3 has is able to store many more apps or widgets or homescreen data etc... If thisi s after several or more MEM demanding tasks are running then I will probably be ok. I heard that S^3 may have a swap file integrated this time round, AKA virtual page file. This might definately help against memory full errors with 256mb of RAM only. Such as 760 odd mb more of virtual mem. I don't know. But it will help as a cache when running out of or low on RAM etc...
