Gurushant, 19 Apr 2011though its outdated but in symbian world it is 10ghzI agree with that. Just imagine how S^3 will run on that CPU. Too bad we won't see Symbian running on a CPU like that unless Nokia have a change of heart. It's painful to see Nokia like this but their arrogance and failure to adopt to current market trends brought them to this hole. They lost me as a customer and countless others who migrated to Android.
Back on topic, I still can't believe Nokia approved this phone's design. Who in their right mind would like to carry a phone that's shaped like this? I think it would be better if the face is not black.
The Ex-Nokia Fanboy, 19 Apr 2011You had it the other way around. This phone is symbolic and perfect for the dying Symbian. Hav... moreYa ya i know i know... Nokia is going to adopt wp7 just to attract android users...because symbian is not eye candy its an ugly UI so nokia is going to get WP7 and don't worry symbian is not going to be dead as it will be focused on mid range and low range devices while wp7 will be focused on high end...
Gurushant, 19 Apr 2011Well every phone has got its adv and dis nokia is only keen on making the phone durable you ex... more1GHz Dual-core Nokia in Q1 2012? That's already outdated. 2 GHz dual-core from Samsung is coming at that same time frame and quad-cores are coming to Android on Q4 2011/fall. We will see quad-cores this year.
The Ex-Nokia Fanboy, 19 Apr 2011Please explain why Nokia is behind in smartphone sales despite what these ratings on GSMArena ... moreWell every phone has got its adv and dis nokia is only keen on making the phone durable you ex fan may know nokia phones are durable.. I don't own a n8 if i had own it i would dare to keep it under moving truck would you dare to do with your sgs2????? even an astound or c7 ,c6-01 can be put under a moving truck this shows the strong durable body. does your sgs2 got it???? In teh Q1 of 2012 nokia is going to launch dual core processor with 1ghz clock which would make a significant rise in the sales of smartphone and with the introduction of anna os.. just wait and watch what happens to sgs2 or other..
[deleted post]You had it the other way around. This phone is symbolic and perfect for the dying Symbian. Haven't you heard that Nokia is pulling the plug on Symbian and will adopt WP? You don't believe me? Ask your great CEO Elop and he will tell you it's the truth.
Anyways, let me refresh your memory with this link about what Nokia planned for Symbian. It's the "burning platform" memo by Nokia's CEO, Stephen Elop.
Try reading it. It's a great read for hard core fans like you who needs to have some senses knocked into their thick skull. Nokia finally realized that what they have is not good enough.
Gurushant, 19 Apr 2011look dude if you had bad experience with your symbian mobile then you better leave symbian and... morePlease explain why Nokia is behind in smartphone sales despite what these ratings on GSMArena says? Let me help you and make it easier for blind fanboys like you. It doesn't really matter what these ratings on GSMArena says. SGS II is way better than this phone without a doubt. Nokia has a lot of fans and that explains why they got high ratings but that doesn't mean it's better than the current Android flagships like the SGS II.
Those ratings are inflated by Nokia fans but that doesn't mean it's better than what the competition offers. In fact, Nokia phones are inferior nowadays. Hard core fans like you are always in denial but most people don't have brand loyalty and more are leaving Symbian for Android phones. Just look at how Android surges while Symbian continues on its decline.
Gurushant, 18 Apr 2011If its boring to you, you better get off this section and join your crappy android section eve... moreAnd YES GURUSHANT, still you can't compare 600mhz to 1ghz because they are not equal. Hahaha! Cheap nokia phones, that's the truth and the truth hurts.
[deleted post]look dude if you had bad experience with your symbian mobile then you better leave symbian and this section and stick to your sgs2 and u better know one thing that though samsung or other brand may use 2ghz or 4ghz processor it doesn't matter for nokia fans, we fans always stick to nokia whether they use a 680mhz or 2ghz processor. If you think that sgs2 is better than this one then why the hell is nokia X7 first and sgs2 in second position in daily interest??????? that means lots of people are interested in nokia phones regardless of weak processor you better know it.. By ratings Nokia N8 is in 5 position where is your sgs2 in the list???? though sgs1 is in 6th position. In interest section among 15 places 11 places are occupied by nokia phones and first 4 are also occupied by nokia where is your sgs2 in the list????? or is there any samsung mobile in the list???

Anonymous, 18 Apr 2011Hey GURUSHANT.. You're comparing 600mhz to 1ghz, stating that its all equal? When did 600=1g... moreIf they are "boring" don't buy them! Liking ot or not, there are billions of other people who will! Nokia does not need stupid people! U are talking about cpu and all this kind of stuff! Sorry i am saying this but u are just a victim! There are two parts of developing a phone and generally programming! The one is the software and the other one is the hardware! And there are two choices! The first is what every company is doing; placing the software and puting the strongest hardware elements so u have nothing to fear.. and the other choice is to combine simple software and middle strong hardware in a way that it will respond as smoothly as nokia's phones! Which do you think is more difficult? But what am i asking?! You don't know a thing about how mobile programming is working! cya victim!

Sounds awkward isn't it
Mike Plissken, 18 Apr 2011Dude, if you don't like it, don't buy it, no one is twisting your arm... Now, don't tell crap ... morewhy you getn shirty about some1 having an opinion - the fact is symbian is a load of sht & every1 knows it. i couldnt wait for the nokia n8 to come out & when it did i was very disappointed. it was laggy & i had to tap the screen more than once on the same command, nokia have had plenty of time to get their act together,they have seen how fast things are changing and still refuse to make the necessary changes to satisfy their loyal customers, it sux! now i shall wait for the sgs2 to come out, this phone waxes all others aside from the res which is only beaten by iphone & htc sensation, be honest instead of being a fanboy, compare the two phones & you will see what im sayn makes sense
no secondary camera its needed.why tv out not given,with xinon flash it will be better.others its good set.
Mike Plissken, 18 Apr 2011I beg your pardon? Nokia doesn't have a dual core?? Well, it had. NOKIA N95 and N95 8GB, both... moreN95 was not dual core, instead it had multiple processor units. Learn the difference.

When did 600=1g... moreIf its boring to you, you better get off this section and join your crappy android section everyone knows that symbian is highly efficient it doesnt need a 1 ghz processor 680 is enough...If nokia needs a 1ghz processor they can update the processor from 680 to 1ghz through firmware updates like they did with 5800 by updating it from 369 to 424. Arm processor can be overclocked..

More over smasung, LG cannot be considered as cell phones in my opinion, they are basically kichen items supplier, like Fridge,microven and inorder to increase the product typesjust in number they tried phones, NEVER ever a specilaist in this field.. and our some fool guys behind them.. So stick to NOKIA or Blackberry the UNIVERSAL PHONE MAKERS
