AMAN, 17 Aug 2011hi friends i m little bit confused i have nokia c6 but i want new phone can u suggest which on... moresymbian used to be good, but as time passes by its getting outdated..in the next 3-5 years, nokia will no longer support symbian, but only windows phone..
android is getting popular day by day..all cellphone companies have their android phone, only nokia doesn't have(also apple and rim, but they have their own os better than symbian)
android has over 200,000 apps..if you're an app-lover, buy an android phone of atleast hvga resolution coz thats the standard resolution..
android is the future..also there are available rugged android such as this phone and i think symbian doesn't have..
AMAN, 17 Aug 2011hi friends i m little bit confused i have nokia c6 but i want new phone can u suggest which on... moreComparison of both android and symbian operating systems :
1). OPERATING SOFTWARE or FIRMWARE
>so if you got an symbian phone suppose an. s60v3 and now you want an s60v5 then all you can do is trash your old phone and buy a new s60v5 by spending cash (like I did)
>but if you have an android phone with suppose an 1.6 android version running and you want to upgrade to 2.1 android version then all you have to do is do a software upgrade through your phone or by using a computer and as soon as the upgrade is finished you have your 1.6 replaced by 2.1 giving you new added features and some new user interface, no need of wasting your money on buying new cell phones
2). FLASHING Your phone with new FIRMWARE
>If you are a SYMBIAN user and hate the looks of your phones menu style then you have 2 options to change those looks
a – install a new theam for your phone or
b – flash your. phone with new firmware or rom by using a computer
now everybody knows this is a risky procedure and if anything goes wrong your phone will be dead
>but if you r an ANDROID user and want to do the same then you have 3 options
a) – either install new theme
b) – either install new menu launcher
c) – flash your phone with new custom firmware
you will need to download a new firmware or rom from internet. and flash it using your phone only by just using the RECOVERY MENU of your phone and if anything goes wrong and your phone is dead then you can actually get back your phone in working condition from the recovery menu itself
t’s as simple as clicking the button. and everything in your phone will be like before nothing ever happened and all this can be dont from your phone itself no need of looking at the computer.
3). – CHANGING PHONE FEATURES
>if u use a. SYMBIAN phone and want to change the way how your menu looks. the way how your gallery looks and how your videos. and music liabrary looks and how your notes and documents and messages, mms, and phone book looks the way your browser and file manager looks.
then you can download and install new applications available out there and use them for the purpose but that will take all your precious phone memory and also will not act. as your. default. application. if you don’t want this to happen then you. can find a custom firmware for your phone that satisfy all your needs and flash it but that’s risky as we saw before
>but in an android. you can acctually do little tweaks and treaks. by removing your default file browser and downloading. and installing new file browser. that’s it no risky stuff no memorry eaten by an extra useless application tht you don’t need. and the new downloaded application act as your default. application
4). PROCESSOR and its SPEED
Now processor is very important to run high end applications,
>In a symbian phone you cannot see what speed your processor runs on
>In an android there are some applications. that not only gives you look of your processor speed. but also can help you control it and help you save your battery by going to minimum speed or help you run high end applications on your. phone smoothly by going to maximum speed.
not only that you can overclock. your processor
like my phone processor is 512mhz. and its his max speed
but i overclocked it to 712mhz. now I have smoother phone
d)- money spent on phone
take a NOKIA 5800xm phone and now take a. NOKIA N8
check out the difference
u got bigger screen, bigger processor, good camera that’s it rest is same like same menu view, same file browser and messaging and call log browser
same application can be downloaded and just higher graphics in THE N8 and same. wifi and 3g and gps
but i think i can acctually do with NOKIA 5800 rather then buying expensive n8.
>symbian phones does not allow users to do modifications with their phones
but why if you bought the phone its yours, its not nokias phone anymore
>android people say its your phone now so go ahead and do anything you want.
hi friends i m little bit confused i have nokia c6 but i want new phone can u suggest which one is better between android and simbiyan and why plzzz
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2011unfortunately ,there's no point to this anymore now that defy+ with all the features defu lack... moreyeah.. we all know that.. but there's still a lot that would consider this coz it has a front camera, slimmer and hopefully cheaper.. also motoblur is very bad..
unfortunately ,there's no point to this anymore now that defy+ with all the features defu lacked is out ...its betyer in all ways than this..especially its small size and big battery
clueless, 16 Aug 2011does the mud come with the phone when you buy it?no.. but you need to soak your phone in mud before you can get out on samsung store.. lol
Spogy, 15 Aug 2011Why do they drop the camera size and a few other specs. Like they always fall just short of pe... moreCoz that'll be too much of an expensive phone already and there'll be no more or much room for the next improved one. They always need to invent succeeding better units, can't run out of new better ones to market next time.
this Samsung is a joke, Cassio has a much better and more serious phone, and Sonim XP 3.20 Quest Pro, which I have the real deal, before the Snima I had the iPhone 3GS and I was just shaking all the time that something might happen to him, my poor phone, but his display of broke after kust 40 sm. drop, I have Sonim 3 months, this phone is for a real man, I have had many phones,(I work in "!" operator but this is the best I have come acros so far.
