Nokia is Beating a Dead Horse...


Nov 8, 2010, 7:32 PM
Everyone everywhere HATES Symbian... It's not user friendly, it causes any device to have horrible battery life (because of the multitasking). For example, I had the N75, because at the time it was "amazing", unfortunately after about 10 minutes of web browsing(or youtube) it would say low memory and I would have to completely power-cycle the device to get the darn thing to want to keep Surfing.

Other devices i have read that issue on; 5800, N95, e71, e71x, e62, n93... So it wasn't my phone it is the Operating system. There is no reason to keep this OS going, just admit loss and move on to smaller (because Symbian was nothing but bloatware) and better things

Disagree. There are plenty of problems with Symbian but unpopularity and battery life are not among them.

(Low RAM, on the other hand, is.)

I agree with most of whats been said. Nokia is indeed 'beating a dead horse' on the touchscreen platform. It doesn't work, few people want it -- they should move on to android. I think nokia may get a clue after their flagship N8 fails to sell. But who knows, this is a company who still thinks the n900 was a great product .

However, I have to disagree with the part about poor battery life/performance. For a normal push button phone platform, symbian works great. The n75 was a poor model. The n95/n85/n82 were mostly pretty stable (and had nice goodies like wifi, built in gps & downloadable maps, 5.0 megapixel cameras. All these models had great battery life ( i used all for a few months).

IIRC, the sales numbers are through the roof on the N8. So much so in fact, that they had to delay release here in the US.
That said, Symbian is HUGE in Europe and elsewhere, and just because you can't effectively multitask doesn't mean that it reflects poorly on the OS. Why don't YOU kill some apps if you need to rather than have Android spoonfeed you with its autokill?
Also, the N900 IS a great phone. I'm a proud owner of one. Is it meant for the mass market? Surely not, but that doesn't preclude it from being a great phone. The power of this phone is unparalleled and the potential is near limitless.
