  • The OS is a solid rebirth of Symbian that's made for touch
  • But there's nothing that pushes it ahead of iOS and Android
  • But there's nothing that pushes it ahead of iOS an
  • Symbian user experience lags competitionStill too many system nags and promptsNo QWERTY keyboard in portrait mode
  • Poor touchscreen keyboard
  • Frustrating Internet experience
  • Cluttered interface
  • $500 price tag
  • No battery access
  • Slow processor lags sometimes
  • Symbian v3 OS can't compete with Android or iOS
  • Poor built-in Web browser
  • No vertical QWERTY keyboard
  • Competitive with the Pros (iPhone
  • Android
  • Windows 7)
  • But clearly won't convert the entrenched. Nonremovable battery = two steps back. Symbian^3 OS's lack of polish puts a hurt on quick navigation. Dual card bay (one for memory
  • One for sim) is a hassle
  • It's expensive. User interface is much improved
  • But still trails the competition in ease of use. The N8 can be sluggish. You only get a QWERTY keyboard in landscape mode
  • And there's no user-replaceable battery
  • Symbian^3 still looks dated
  • Internet browser could be smoother
  • Not too many apps available for the platform
  • Expensive
  • User interface has improved but still fails to sustain the competition
  • Battery isn't replaceable easily
  • QWERTY keyboard ain't available in potrait mode
  • Symbian^3 is lags behind in performance compared to Android or iOS
  • Symbian OS can be difficult to operate
  • Limited ‘Ovi' store

  • Abstract:  The Symbian^3 flagship Nokia N8 has been no stranger to “hands on impressions”. In fact the first exhaustive impressions of a leaked prototype device came as early as April 2010, when Eldar Murtazin ran an article for Mobile Review. From there onwards, we...

  • This was it, shutterbugs. Apparently we don't have an ultimate camera phone here, but even if we had one, it wouldn't have been the new HTC One X. The handset did arrive with a very fast ImageSense camera, which made photo-taking very intuitive and fa...

  • From our point of view, the Nokia N8 was a failure up until the day that Symbian Anna came out. The OS was buggy, unresponsive, and felt archaic. The phone was characterized by many people that played with it as something that belonged in the late 90's...
