theaffidavit, 12 Nov 2011"yeah totally agree with your point. there are reasons why high-price taged GS2 sold more... moreFunny. :D
I also had to laugh when the fellow below said he could match every app on Android with a Symbian alternative.
Maybe match in some cases, but not in performance. The official Facebook App on Android is ten times better than ANY symbian version for a start.

it's simply better :)
apart from iphone4s since it ain't better than GS2 overall and only crapple fanboys buy it."
What a fanboy comment.
if u own a product dont expect everyone to buy same one.
There are called mirror cells in brain which imitate everything.
"Flash is good and bla bla full browsing experience"
-2010 typical fanboy response , and flash compatible with 2.2v has 200 lines of limitations vs desktop flash version without limitations.
"5 MP is too bad needs 8 MP to compete with others"
-2011 April when S2 came out
"5 MP is enough , its decent one"
-October 2011 when nexus prime release.
"HTML 5 is bad .... Flash is better"
-2010-2011 , another typical response
"Flash is not dead , but we also have HTML 5 as option. HTML 5 is also good"
-November 2011 when Flash abandons Mobile flash project and said that flash investment is waste on mobile phones.
"Who needs Siri ? its waste and useless"
Booom everyone downloads Siri copycat aka Iris from android market which works decent but not as awesome as siri. and say Iris is cool 4-4.5 star rating.
google CEO himself said siri is big threat that none uses google search with iphone 4s because of siri.
"Android is good it rules it rocks"
-Doesn't support updates after one year (18 months atmost)and ur own OEM neglects ur phone.
Now what ? time to install custom ROM via rooting.
W8 why rooting ? isnt android "open source" ?
yeah its closed source to customers but open source only to OEMs and carriers so they make crap apps installed and junk and give it to customers.
just like iOS or Wp7 its closed platform.
Me: Siri where can i find lot of viruses and Blant copy of u ? (copy failed epic though couldnt stand siri)
Siri : in Android Market !!

"I have everything what I need using my N8.

very typical excuses from crapple fanboys
wait...it's a Nokia fanboy, WTF? hahaha...
yep. N9 has strong dual led flash. Is it a typo or you had a purpose writing this?
If my memory serves me well (or search function) you said something much different about camera in your N9 review.
So, I'm asking, WTH?

If someone is pleased with Symbian platform, why are you trying to convince him, that android is better, when it's not?
I have everything what I need using my N8.
I have every single app which you can get on your android phone.
So what the heck?
It depends on individual needs. I don't need neither your non-optimized android nor fancy IOS.
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2011so GS2 has once again won the crown of the best 8mp cameraphone aware among the android phones... moreYou just cannot read, can you?
I4S won, not your precious Galaxy S II.
And no, there is no fanboys moaning.
N9 wasn't meant to be a new god in camera department. This title belongs to N8.
What??? Iphone4 and Samsung GS2 beating the Arc?? i just cant agree with that.. (x_x) i just cant because I've experienced Iphone4 camera, its ok but not that superb as the phone that i have got now, the Xperia Arc..
not bein a fanboy here, but its based on experience.
so GS2 has once again won the crown of the best 8mp cameraphone aware among the android phones and even newest and nokia fanboy's god N9 is beaten by GS2.
I heard some fanboys crying out loud everywhere. lol

Did you know that a fake/clone Samsung SG2 with low end specs sold over 170 million units i South and East Asia?
Are you saying it's a better phone that original SG2 just because it sells more?
More sales does not always mean good product. Your reasoning is beyond dumb.

Majority decisions are for running a democracy and not for an individual !you know some people who didn't accept the majority view? Galileo, Newton, Edison, Einstein, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Steve jobs! Now please tell me one name who just accepted the majority view.haha should be very embarrassing right now. You know what Android means? A human shaped robot.and even though a robot can do many things it can't do the most basic human thing- it can't think for itself. So when you say that just accept what the majority says you are no better than an Android and I pity you for that.And as for accepting that Android is a better platform.....come on Beg some more.even then I won't accept that. it is the most inefficient os and should not be used on a phone. Then how about safety? It is the most virus friendly os. Enjoy fandroids! Symbian can anyways now do what Android users really like.a pretty ui with the belle update but Android can't even dream of what my n8 can do with the camera and everyday tasks like mail sync and browsing on opera for some time some songs. Sports tracker for an hour and still last 2 days on a single charge and this is one year after I bought it! So when you say allround performance do you mean that your Android does your laundry ;p?? So please don't give sermons on allround performance and try thinking for a change.
hkr, 12 Nov 2011everyone know that N8 will beat all of them thats why gsmarena ddint compare it here. but shou... moreexcuse me but, everyone knows that the N8 has a 12mp camera and that the title of this comparison is "8 Megapixel Mega Shootout:Picture This"
Your argument is invalid and irrelevant to the subject matter being discussed here.
In short "use your common sense"
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2011Sales number reflect the craze for Android as people think buying an Android with so many apps... moreSelles numbers reflect the level of confidence that costumers have in a certain brand or platform! Symbian might satisfy your needs,but not those of the majority of people! Instead of calling it "craze" why don't you just admit Android is symply a better platform? The majority decides what is better,and the tendency is that Android is in a continuous expansion! As i've said the focus of a company should be on developing handsets with all-round performance,not just in some aspects!
everyone know that N8 will beat all of them thats why gsmarena ddint compare it here. but should have mentioned in the conclusion.
bw im feeling this is some what biased. N9 have dual LED flash and nokia said it have 30% more power than other LED flash of prior nokias. GSMARENA completes somwhere in the review that it only has a single led flash and it has low power. wtf was that
gsmarena said(The Sensation XE struggled with the noise (including color noise) but it has a strong dual-LED flash and spot on colors. The poor single-LED flash performance of the N9 was partially rescued by the good sensor, but there's noise and a color tint in the photos.)they forgate that nokia n9 have DUAL-LED flash and strongest dual-led flash.so that means this review is totally fake review.sorry gsmarena i m not trust u any more now.
The article would benefit from putting things, especially the conclusion, a bit more in perspective.
As Nokia N8 has been generally accepted to be the camera king, you should at least make reference in the article to this. Even better would be to include it.
Your statement in the conclusion is wrong as well:
"If we had to recommend a cameraphone, it would be the iPhone 4S."
Better would be to state: "If we had to recommend a cameraphone, out of the ones we tested, it would be the iPhone 4S".
Small details? It's the difference between correct journalism from a neutral stance, and a less neutral perspective. Have to admit it's the first time I sense a bit of iPhone bias in GSMArena. Come one, GSMArena, you don't need this.
buntz, 11 Nov 2011they didnt use the arc, they used the Arc SFYI, the Arc S is just an Arc with an overclocked, 1.4-GHz processor, NOT a different phone all together.
