The N8 might be the last Symbian mobile, if the N8 turns out to be a waste of time like the N97,as Nokia since the N95 have been more bothered an Services an no Innovations in the Mobile Market,an its there own big mistake at Nokia,an there Sales an Shares will decline faster,so the company might end up like Sony ericcson down in the dumps,Nokia let the N900 down making it to Bulky an the Sales were there own fault as people want mobiles pocket type not Brick type sticking out in pockets,but the software seemed o.k on the N900,so why didn"t Nokia make the N8 with the same software as the N900 one,Mobile-Review.com can"t understand whats going on at Nokia an does not rate the N8 at All,so just dying to see the First Full Review of the N8 an will it live up to its expectations or be another let down from Nokia,an seen no news how good Symbian^3 is yet from nobody yet
[deleted post]Mark & Tom,
Point 1. X10 processor is way better than N8.
1. 1 GHz vs 680MHz. Whopping 32% lesser than X10.
2. A8 architecture of X10 processor Vs A11 of N8. It has been already proved that A8 is far better than A11.
Second Point – GPU will offload CPU for N8. That’s not quite true.
1. GPU will come in picture for only multimedia contents and here it will offload and I agree.
2. GPU will not do any processing when we have to do normal operations as in read messages, go directly to the bottom of message, search the device. The device will solely be dependent on CPU.
Third Point – SE do not have GPU while N8 has.
1. Having a GPU is always better. GPU offloads the CPU from 2D/3D operations.
Fourth Point – GPU is dangerous.
1. Reason being all operations need to be through CPU so what task needs to be offloaded and what not still needs to be decided by CPU. And hence the decision time could be a lag.
FPS & GPU
Its not only GPU that decides frame rate, it is combination of CPU and GPU. Open task manager and click on below link
@Tom Please buddy, we don't want to hear about your outdated brick :-) People come here to talk and hear about the N8 and not Alcatel, SE or some other small role player. You are posting to the WRONG forum ! You are inadvertly helping with the N8's popularity by increasing the post count !
ruplee, 01 Jun 2010in that case u buy a 1100 nokia.
Gud for u. And buy a slr
Seperately stupidWow hey. Don't be rude, dog.. i personally have a slr so i don't need a 12mp cam for my phone. Thats all i m trying to say. Htc makes the best smartphones.. i will get a htc device..=)
Does anyone know how good the music quality is compare with that of 5800 xpressmusic?
[deleted post]Please search "Mr Tom Helge" on search opinion column. I think you will be agree.
Looks like a good phone, but it has no video light. A Led added to the Xenon flash would have been great. So won't buy one, probably will get a Wave instead.
Nice to see this cell has bluetooth 3.0 Huh, finally :-) now I can copy movie files to my computer without taking the cell out of my pocket. And all that will happen in a flash.
[deleted post]yeh man! but excuse me, when you see two parts are screaming and talking loudly to each other, you wont think about someone is right and the other is wrong .. you immeditly will say " they are crazy"
lol what the difference then :P nothing ..
got the point?!!!?!? its just a phone after all!
It's a good phone with all the features waiting till it releases.I have a idea of buying this phone :but I'm not sure of it's battery.......
Rajesh, 02 Jun 2010SE service in Indonesia is good enough...Many still own Cybershot K800, K810 and a few models ... moreYeah, competetion is always welcomed. Here, Nokia was forced to drop down prices mainly because of Samsung. Ultimately, end consumer is benefited.
[deleted post]Hi! You are a Se fan right?? Then come to the SE X10 forum. :)
Oh, I serched a bit and apparently came across info. that India is second largest cellphone market after china and its a fasrest growing and could overtake China in 2014 if grows with same space.
And market share like Nokia dominating with 56.5%, Samsung at second with 12%. Now hardly left anything for other brands. SE with 6.75% after chinese debranded phones capturing concerning 15% market, and rest other brands.
LISTEN, Nokia is dominating second largest handset market by huge margin!
Ajinkya, 02 Jun 2010I still have my SE T610 working, a good old phone, I love it. If I particularly talk about Ind... moreSE service in Indonesia is good enough...Many still own Cybershot K800, K810 and a few models in Walkman series like W760 was super hit in Indonesia. In symbian P1 etc did well. But now its Satio, xperia and vivaz doing okay. One thing is proven and proven hard...3 years back there was race between K800 and Nokia N73 in 3 mpx camera and SE won the race. Then came the race in Nokia xpress Music and Walkman series and both were at par in Indonesia. But ultimately Nokia won the majority here too. Nobody can take it away from Nokia that they have been world leaders but right now they are struggling due to more OS and tech getting higher and higher. Not only Nokia but every Mobile company is feeling the heat and nobody wants to be second to other. This competition has never been so fierce before and its good for consumers as they will have a wider choice and competitive prices to enjoy their purchase.
Rajesh, 02 Jun 2010You are right about Motorola, but SE has still got potential to be back in competition. Right ... moreI still have my SE T610 working, a good old phone, I love it. If I particularly talk about Indian market (would be probably in top 3 largest markets for cellphones), SE lost its second position to Samsung and it was quite expected. Mainly not because handsets but coz of bad service support. You hardly find SE care centres except few located in metros and few in tier one places. And they took damn month to solve issues. Fall in market share was obvious. Samsung replaced SE! I hardly see SE devices in Indian hands now a days. Nokia obviously still there at no. 1 position keeping their good support, marketing and wide range of devices (in terms of price as well, from 1K to 40k rs!). People are crazy about this company!
I love Nokia and Samsung as well, both are fine at thier place but badly missing SE.. its still there but with absolutely no service support. won't dare to purchase thier device mainly coz of this reason.
