Video: Nokia N8 vs iPhone 4 – Symbian^3 vs iOS4

| September 20, 2010 | 46 Replies

Here’s a two part video comparing the Nokia N8 vs the iPhone 4. Well pretty much S^3 vs iOS4. Quite distinct is the polished nature of iOS – though Symbian has improved greatly since the ridiculous S^1 days.

An important thing to note is that USER EXPERIENCE is the effect of the combination of hardware and software. The look and feel of the iPhone 4’s glitzy UI is undeniably good, but there’s nothing underneath that Symbian cannot accomplish. In fact, being a more mature platform, you could argue that Symbian is much more feature packed. I mean, come on, iOS4 only just got folders, “multitasking”, wallpapers and digital zoom.

The N8’s superb camera is a strong and unique selling point which right now is unrivalled.  I think it’s pretty good for most tasks, and for many consumers, that will be enough.  Web browser definitely needs catching up but according to Nokia – the new Nokia browser will be just as good as anything else out there on the market (for mobile browsing). Even as good as MicroB? Well, that would be a fine thing.

Worth noting is that OS wise, Nokia has MeeGo to combat the glitzy but functional mobile OS department. Also note that the much lower pricing of the N8 compared to iPhone 4 – meaning you get a lot more bang for your buck.
