kashyap, 10 Sep 2011My first ques is:
Have you used N8. I agree with the specs you mentioned,but let me tell you ... moreim not against nokia. infact the symbian is the most user friendly platform. android is a bit difficult to get used to.
and yes i have used n8 too.. have u had multiple webpages and a hd game running in the background n tried to type a msg. well i faced this situation once and tried it on myself a couple of times n the fone used to lag. wer as the s2 doesnt. obviously no one wud leave hd games running in bg, but here im talking about processor speed. i was much impressed with the s2's speed.
symbian works as good as or say better than android but its looks and layout is seriously outdated.
n8 has an aluminium body but s2 is much lighter. have u ever seen a smart fone so light. when i researched on the net before buying s2, even i used to have questions abt the feel of it. but after having it, i dont feel that its plasticky. moreover its sturdy too..... so its light weight, doesnt feel cheap and sturdy too. what more can one ask for.
ya some ppl may like heavier and solid fones in their hands. thats entirely upto the individuals choice.
microsoft may provide better apps but it will certainly not be as large n varied asthe android market. and next yr?? a person buys a n8 today and he ll wait till next year for some good apps to arrive??
my dear s2 costs more not only because of dual core n ram. there r so many areas where this fone has an edge over n8. explained so many in my previous post. and its worth every penny.
n 5 mil. handsets sold across the globe within 3 months, excluding the US.
obviously ppl r not dumb to just go and buy any fone blindly
one person comes out with an idea n everybody copies him n tries to make something better. thats how it works. if it wasnt for this, there wudnt be any competition in the market buddy. and it would solely be apple's monopoly. nokia copied blackberry when it started making fones like e71,72...
almost every mobile company copied apple's idea of a tablet. and now u got htc, samsung, bb, windows, lenovo ..... 'n' number of tabs to choose from.
consumers get so much to choose from only cause companies copy from one another. and look at the current market , android is giving apple a run for its money.
so im not saying n8 is bad or it doesnt do the job well...n8 is pretty good and easy to use but s2 wins in almost every aspect. comparing them is futile. peace.
not only is this phone great but there is a promo!
kashyap, 10 Sep 2011My first ques is: Have you used N8. I agree with the specs you mentioned,but let me tell you ... moreThe 256 mb ram in N8 is not even enough for browsing large webpages without gigantic lag, and the slow cpu cannot handle Flash 10.3 and even struggles with FlashLite! The S2 plastic is not cheaper than the N9 plastic, S1 felt plastic but S2 does not! N8 is very bulky and aluminium make it heavy and less durable because plastic is better at absorbing collisions when dropped... then metal is! The metal does not absorbe anyting and does not protect the internal electronic from collision-forces when dropped..., metal is not better than plastic when used on phones!
kashyap, 10 Sep 2011The heating issues in SGS2 are fixed, but still it heats up with heavy use.......My N8 heat up more than my updated S2!
symbian fan, 10 Sep 2011Sorry but i not belive you :) . Nokia n8 give you everything you need :) free life time :) gps... moreLiar!
My N8 freezes more than 2 times every day, and webbrowsing is a real pain, and the camera is good compared to other phones but can not compete with a dedicated real camera! N8 is very bulky!
S2 is a much better smartphone, and the camera is more than good enough for every smartphoneuser because if you need a professional camera then not even N8 is good enough!
symbian fan, 10 Sep 2011Sorry but i not belive you :) . Nokia n8 give you everything you need :) free life time :) gps... moreI wouldnt be praising the n9 to much yet. Remember the n8,,,all the hype,,then big disapointment, same fate could be in for n9,,,,nokia has dropped their game ,,i love my galaxy2,,but I do hope nokia can come back,,,the n9 does look good,,we will all soon know
symbian fan, 10 Sep 2011Sorry but i not belive you :) . Nokia n8 give you everything you need :) free life time :) gps... moreCalm down mate... Okay its cool N8 is better than SGS2, even Nokia N70 is much preety than S2. I wanted to marry her but she ran away wid N8, okay Nokia 6600 was also much beautiful than S2. I wanted to make her ma new gf but i found that she was a lesbo, fine Nokia 1100 is a great smartphone ever made n coz f that S2 is so jealous that it has decided to suicide, really Nokia 3310 is still largest selling phone in the whole universe even on mars, jupiter, saturn n pluto.... Sounds crazy but its a fact... Nokia rocks all over... Symbian rules... Yuppieeeee m a symbian fan... M master f the universe.... Dnt mess wid me android fans or else i will kill that robo android boy n throw its arms n legs on the moon, till then u watch a cartoon....

(i think u have not used android)
kashyap, 10 Sep 2011My first ques is:
Have you used N8. I agree with the specs you mentioned,but let me tell you ... morewhat u r saying is like comparing a super sport car(SGS2) with a normal saloon car(N8)...
of course, both car can still ride on the road..
what a saloon car can do, sport car oso or even better..
speed- sport car wins
spec- sport car wins
fuel consumption- saloon car wins(YEAH!!!)

zo, 10 Sep 2011whao... cool down..n i must say u got some guts coming here n downgrading one of the most powe... moreMy first ques is:
Have you used N8. I agree with the specs you mentioned,but let me tell you a 680mhz processor in n8 can do almost all the stuff your SGS2 does. i've used both these handsets. symbian belle works much better than my other android handset, thats a fact.
And RAM: 256mb in n8 can multitast like a moster, the multitasking in symbian^3 is the best multitasking ever.
Design: N8 has a unibody anodized aluminium, it has a real solid feel, much better than a cheap plastic samsung Galaxy S2.
Apps: microsoft is providing better apps next year, wait and watch.
I'm not denying that SGS2 is not capable, its a monster i know that, never underestimate N8, it has its own potential.
Why you need a dual core and extra RAM when a single core is capable of doing all those stuff, its a waste of money and resources.
ANDROID is copy of the ios. Thats a fact, you should accept it.........
Does the s2 heat up fairly easily? or does it only heat up while playing games? Also has anyone tried playing dungeon defenders on the S2?
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2011Lets be honest it is a very child like phone full of gimmicks to keep the children happy also ... morewhao... cool down..n i must say u got some guts coming here n downgrading one of the most powerful phones.. and that to to a symbian platform.hey do u have any enmity with samsung. anyways on what basis r u comparing the two. ur n8 only has a better cam.nuthing else. obviously u must know the diff between the two processors. 1.2 ghz vs 680 mhz.. biiiiggg diff.
moreover s2 has an hsdpa of 21 mbps whereas n8 is 10. again faster downloading speed for s2.
plus s2 is nt only faster cause of cpu but also because of its ram. 1gb ram against nokias 256 mb. not even half on s2.
smaller screen size for n8.
design wise, the s2 is sleek.. n8 is bulky. (i even like the n8's design n feel though.)
a vga secondary camera vs a 2mp cam for samsung. the difference is evident.
and even android has offline maps.
no wifi direct in n8. tht means no high speed data transfer. n by high speed i mean transferring a 150 mb file within seconds.
no nfc for nokia yet.
with majority of the phones running on android, there r thousands of applications to choose from. symbian loses out badly compared to android.
a much sharper display for s2. so it means bigger screen n a much sharper display, better graphics than n8.
so how on earth do u say n8 is better than this monster. well u wud like n8 only if
- u like photography
-u work for nokia.
else its completely baseless to compare the two. even on the net u may find tht s2 is majorly compared with iphone4 and htc sensation. but n8 is far behind my friend. even i was a big fan of nokia but this fone has changed it all.
vicky, 10 Sep 2011wat abt the security and virus protection in s2You can install norton mobile security.
symbian fan, 10 Sep 2011o really n8 is camera phone only make calls? n8 is near two years older but it's doing same as... morei too had N8 before SGS2.... N8 hangs a minimum of 2 times a day....the + point is N8 having a good camera.
and its childish to compare N8 to mighty SGS2...
(i think u have not used SGS 2)
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2011Lets be honest it is a very child like phone full of gimmicks to keep the children happy also ... moreMy child, you call a 1.2GHz dual-core processor a gimmick?
How about your 680MHz N8? Its a toy for children like you!
I hope you know the difference betweem GHz and MHz my precious.
