“Everybody says, that Symbian^3 hasn’t changed, but look for yourself!”
I’m surprised no such detailed comparison has been done. Actually planned to do it myself this weekend but caught up on coursework (which I’m half doing as I write this). But jenjaman has done an excellent job and split it into a four round match between old and new Symbian touch.
Although the comparison is with the C6-00 and not N97/N97 mini, the software is possibly nigh on identical. Screen size difference shouldn’t matter too much, neither should AMOLED vs LCD (except AMOLED looking better) though having a capacitive versus resistive indeed does.
S^3 representatives are N8 and C7.
Watching the C6-00 S^1 is quite frustrating.
Dialler, App Menu, Music Player (zomg menu in landscape of S^1 wtf the ugly sidebar), Messaging
Thanks to jenjaman for the heads up
