Why the "Call Record"
always "max 30 days"
can't they make it unlimited?!
Rajesh, 05 Jun 2010Its not only SE but Nokia too in recent times has made phones with horrible construction. At t... moreAnother reason is also a huge price fall.. its true nokia too having bad built quality on some phones but they are not falling.. their new and high end models still have the same quality for what nokia is known. new coming c series phones like c5 are well reported on built quality. also newly launched 6700 slide is very well built according to review on this site.. majority of handsets from Eseries lineup are robust. but thats not the case with sony ericsson. T series from them had exceptionally well built quality. it bit went down in walkman series though cybershot lineup phones were ok but now the quality and standards have fallen further.. also post sale service is very pathetic. one usually regrett buying their high end phone.. here now a days sony phones are known for weak signal reception and low sound on ringing phone (hardly sufficient to notice in noisy areas).. this was never a case with their old phones.. it feels like old sony ericsson is missing somewhere and they have been taken over by other low standard companies..
Engineer Man, 04 Jun 2010Did you know that an older Symbian Series 30 or 40 series phone with 300Mhz CPU could run 60 A... morehohoho its really cool.
so now tom know that CPU speed is not a problem.
and for the people who still questioning bout Ghz in N8 or comparing only in CPU Ghz,should read Engineer Man post first.
nice post Engineer Man.
Mario, 05 Jun 2010Sonyericsson is DEAD ! They only have 3% market share (down from 9%). The people don't like SE... moreIts not only SE but Nokia too in recent times has made phones with horrible construction. At times if you dont read the brand Nokia on phone, you will think its a toy phone from China. If you dont know about this tell me and I will post the Nokia model Nos with worst contruction materials used. Yes, I do agree with you that SE too has lost its class which was visible in form of robust construction about 4 or 5 years back. China has spoiled many companies teaching them to cut corners in terms of quality to multiply the profits....
Lee Williams, Executive director of Symbian Foundation
Lee Williams also stresses that Symbian^3 is a transitory release to Symbian^4. Which makes me wonder again, what Nokia’s CEO was talking about, when he said that S^3 was THE major effort/investment for Nokia, and S^4 is a much smaller, incremental release. Everyone from Symbian, that I talked to about this, is contradicting Nokia CEO on S^3/S^4 relative importance.

Just recieved a email from Nokiablog an showing some more photos taken by the N8,an o.k it might be a Preview N8 but the photos were not that outstanding an hope the Final N8 can take top quality photos an videos,just dying to see an use the Nokia N8
Symbian^3 is a rework of Symbian^1, fixing and improving the OS from the base to the top. Some UI/UX elements have been improved, such as the single tap, the multiple home screens, the widget management, but most of the work has been done under the hood. Optimizing the platform for the new Mobile needs is the goal.
S.B. What does “rework” of Symbian one mean? And you also say, that Symbian^3 is transition release. But Nokia CEO says that that, “in terms of OS development, all the major heavy lifting has been done in Symbian^3. It is the key upgrade to the high end line-up. Symbian^4 will be just an incremental improvement over S^3, requiring much less effort and investment.” Sounds a bit contradictory to me.
“Rework” means fixing what doesn’t work, improving what is not performant enough, making the system more robust, make it more simple to develop and maintain it. A “rework” or “refactoring” is needed periodicly. Sometimes it is done all along the development process, sometimes it is needed to have a period of major refactoring.
[deleted post]Yes, it does work flawlessly. But I guess now a days they both come with same headset that is WH701 and its a powerful, loud yet well balanced. I am not sure which one you got.
Is it really a new OS? No, its not. Basically, Symbian development has a timebox and whatever comes at the end of timebox is named a new version.
S.B. Btw, what happened to Symbian^2? We have handsets with S60.5/Symbian^1, we have upcoming handsets with S^3. But, outside of Japan, I haven’t seen any handsets with S^2?
J.F. The way Symbian OS development works nowadays, is based on “Time Boxing”. A release is developed during a certain Time Box of 6 months. S^2, S^3, S^4 are just names connected to the end of the Time Box.
When S^2 Time Box was getting to the end, S^2 didn’t have any “customer”. There was no device planning to use it, except in Japan.
S^3 Time Box started, and with it Nokia decided to make a product. S^3 is an evolution of S^2, the same way that S^4 will be of S^3
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2010You sould ask n8 or x6 of course n8well yeah cause i've seen many good apps for the 5800XM and that's what make me ask..thx anyway :)
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2010waste of specs having the very old symbian in it. oh wait.. it has the new symbian? nah.... moreIf you think S^3 is just a new theme, you never used and tried to undertood what S^1 is! Come out of non sense talk.

This is Ahmed,
First his SW is old (I can tell)
Also something is CLEARLY wrong with his fingers....getting to the phone application is quick all the time!!
I dont know about this guy, but seems like his using his NAILS...and if you know how capacitive screens work....they dont work with NAILS (maybe he thinks its a resistive screen)!!!
Just take a﻿ look at my vids
may i ask something please
which one is better N8 or 5800XM??????????
i'm gonna buy one of those phone,please help me
Mark, 05 Jun 2010Stop spreading FUD or incomplete stories. The guy is using a capacitive screen with a screen p... moreLol.. thats really funny. He is trying nail on capacitive screen! And screen protector for proto! too much care for device. How he supposed he can review it?
N8 Response Speed, 05 Jun 2010http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u25URAQkOpM&feature=player_embedded
I think everybody wh... moreStop spreading FUD or incomplete stories. The guy is using a capacitive screen with a screen protector for crying out loud! You can tell by the blue triangle in the corner.
Next to that, our chinaman here is using his nails on a capacitive screen with a protector. Next to that, that device is so beta, the flash is sticking out even.
Look at this video instead. It registers instantly, and is very fast as well.
I am happy you are trying to inform us, but please do it right and give us the complete story. Responsiveness is fantastic for this device.
Or do you think otherwise after seeing the video I link to?.......
I think everybody who claims N8 is very responsive must watch this video
He presses the dialer Button 5 times every second.
From 0:53 to 0:57 and then he gets it exactly the CALL DIALLER open at 0:58.
Even the hardware button, he presses twice or thrice and then it responds.
Please watch it carefully. This video will give clear picture of responsiveness of N8.
I am not going to judge and tell you whether it fails.
Watch it yourself.
