My feedback towards respective mobile OS:
- Jack of all trade, Master of none.
It can do everything one would expect, performance expectations are less.
Less processing power required, hence better battery life. Symbian doesn’t require a multi core processor or a Gigabyte of RAM. Hardware utilization is minimum.
We can save/install apps on external memory, all Symbian series 60, 80 and 90 used to support multitasking.
-Smart boy in the town.
Good browser, flashy animations, resizable widgets (only from ICS upgrade)
Require mutlicore processors for smooth processing with a gigabyte of RAM, needs application to save application on external memory.
I hate build quality of Samsung phone, looks same plastic used for 3K to 30K phones.
Google release OS upgrade very frequently which has its positive and negative effects, Nexus devices gets the update immediately.
If you would have purchased android manufactured by other vendor with his UI customization we need to wait 2-4 months to get the update and some devices we are not sure whether we will get official update or not. If I had spent 25K-30K on a device it becomes piece of junk within a span of one year.
– Smartphone only with EDGE (Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE), also known as Enhanced GPRS (EGPRS))
Without GPRS/3G it is just a color phone with flashy animation.
Status quotient in the society – expensive device and data rate plans.
Revolutionary technology bought in touch-screen phones. I appreciate Apple effort in supporting the latest OS support for older models.
Bluetooth can be paired only with audio devices not possible to transfer files/music.
Without ITunes we can’t transfer music and videos to device.
– Dead on arrival
This was the OS which could have given competition to Android OS, running on similar LINUX platform. This was developed by Nokia and Intel together.
Thanks to Mr. Elop for killing the awesome phone N9 the day it was released. Even with dead OS I would have bought this phone if released in India.
Currently Samsung and Intel are developing this OS and renamed the OS as Tizen.
At present I’m happy with my Nokia 701 running onSymbian Belle, 1.3GHz processor and 512MB RAM with a dedicated GPU (VFM
phone). Next upgrade Google nexus (VFM
@ $350, except its plastic body) or Nokia N9.
