Come on children - let's not fight!!!
Here's my (unbiased opinion) on the latest phones...
X10 - no native multitouch, 1.6 to start with, no prospect of 2.2 (2.1 likely SOMETIME) and underdeveloped U.I. (major problem) with lagging interface... looks very nice though - and very nice screen!
N8 - the ultimate cameraphone - I don't class it in the same league as Desire, Galaxy S, X10 - I think it's more in league with Satio, Vivaz, etc. - looks fantastic - but U.I. is seriously outdated, one for picture buffs (who want a bit of customisation)
Desire - all-rounder, dependable, HD video update coming, Froyo promised, 2.1 out of the box... If you're in doubt, I'm sure 90% of the population wanting an Android phone would be happy - it's the safe bet, the U.I. is slick (but after having a Hero for a year) it's just a tad boring, but no issues whatsoever... (looks slightly boring)
Galaxy S - incredibly dull looking, odd omission of photo light - but (and similar to Desire) people getting this I suspect aren't interested in taking photos as much (the HD video is welcome!) but the specs and screen appear to be best in class. For people who want to be cutting edge and are willing to take the slings and arrows of Samsung's first Android device. Count me in!
Design is clearly no that ugly ! It's amazingly thin and rather classic.
The Flash support will come soon with Froyo
The Flash on camera is lacking, true. But is it really important?
Moe, 26 May 2010Lol only kids,haters and Fanboys here? From the specs,this Phone IS the best phone nowadays... moreI applaud you sir, for understanding that a phone is a tool, not jewelry. Many people seem to forget this.
Moe, 26 May 2010Lol only kids,haters and Fanboys here? From the specs,this Phone IS the best phone nowadays... moreSee the great application available for symbian. Probably it will also available for N8. http://blog.gsmarena.com/spb-mobile-shell-3-5-for-symbian-released-our-review-is-inside/
This phone has the most insane specs. Only problem is the design is horrible. I could of at least up with that because I can admire with an amazing piece of technology this phone is. However I have no clue why samsung couldn't of at least put an led flash on this beast considering almost ever phone on the market has one.
Lol only kids,haters and Fanboys here?
From the specs,this Phone IS the best phone nowadays,that's a fact.Some people though won't like the Design,well,that's an opinion,not fact.Personally i don't care a lot about design because i tend to use my phone's abilities and not itself as an acessoire.But I respect other people's opinion which care more about design.Besides,the design of the iphone menu grid for example was actually stolen from palm's OS ;).So much for copycat...
Nokia N8 IS in fact oudated because of its OS.I think in the near future the big ones will be iphone OS,Android and WinMo 7 (and perhaps Samsung's Bada,but I don't believe it).Not many people will still use Symbian.
Been using the galaxy s prototype for last 5 days. I must say that I'm really impressed! This will replace my current Nokia. :). I second the review, the super amoled is amazing! Battery life for me has been roughly two days. Looking at the specs on paper doesn't do justice to it. You really have to try it for yourself.
Its official its gonna be released June 5 2010 in Singapore / Asia.
...M AzeeM K..., 21 May 2010Great Review.
Just not that much happy to see the Galaxy S having 256MB RAM. Anyways, A gr... moreIt doesn't only have 256mb, read the addendum, or other site notes on it.
Turn-by-turn should be available in the UK and US as it is for the nexus one, from the pics I'm guessing the reviewer was based in France?
Pachi, 25 May 2010No Flash for Camera= Complete $%*$( Failed.....In that case get real camera or N8
anonymous, 26 May 2010it doesnt matter how they do it, what matters is the result.Do you think in real life cpu has only one work - to generate triangles. No, its not. While multitasking and other activites phone need cpu. So actual number will be quite low.
Anonymous, 26 May 2010So what if the GPU on the N8 is capable of 32M triangles, who gives a rat's ass about the N8. ... moreTrue visual multitasking is dated?? USB ON THE GO, Bluetooth 3.0, Wifi n, Hdmi port, Web tv, Anodized Aluminum Casing all seems dated to you?? Well N8 is true powerhouse. Only it dont have Super Amoled.
Anonymous, 26 May 2010So what if the GPU on the N8 is capable of 32M triangles, who gives a rat's ass about the N8. ... more95% of people who visit Gsmarena. The daily interest clearly shows how people are interested on N8.
And if you want 3d ui on N8, see this;
I dont think you have any trouble to say 30 $ for such a application on such a great phone like N8.
Lol, 26 May 2010First you should know that the Gpu on Galaxy S = 28 M triangles per second. But combine with h... moreSo what if the GPU on the N8 is capable of 32M triangles, who gives a rat's ass about the N8. Its an obsolete device even before its released aside from its fancy 12mpixel camera. anything else on the that device feels pretty dated especially symbian OS
Enough with the accusation of I9000 as iPhone copy. If by design, it does look a bit like iPhone but please take a look at the specs not the design!. The specs are not completely a copy of iPhone. It doesn't even has the iPhone OS built in but Android OS. So cut your crappy Apple/iPhone fanboy talk.
Anonymous, 25 May 2010i dont understand how its a better gpu than this phone on the n8 according to research noki... moreFirst you should know that the Gpu on Galaxy S = 28 M triangles per second. But combine with hummingbird cpu it can give 90M triangles/second. While Gpu of N8 is alone capable to 32M triangle/second.
what about software updates?
will samsung support galaxy S??
or leave it to dry after a few months?
[deleted post]i totally agree with you they talking about iphone rip off n nearly 80% of the parts in a iphone the processor in the 3gs is a samsung spc100 while the humming bird is the spc110 even the ipad a4 processor samsung have involvement in its manufacturing cause its similar to the hummingbird processor so even if samsung made a phone tht looks like the iphone apple wont even have 1 bit of a prob cause samsung supplies them with nearly 80% of the parts 4 the iphone e.g audio chip,processor nand chips etc
