Video: Speed Test, Nokia N8 vs Nokia X7, PR1.2 vs PR2.0 (Symbian Anna)

Now you may have already seen the comparison video between two N8s, one with PR1.2 and the other with the newer Symbian Anna (due for existing customers in August but should be available this month on new shipping  S^3 handsets, and for X7 and E6-00)

In the video below, Camb078 presents us with direct comparisons of X7 and N8 to see what effect, if any, Symbian Anna has on speed.

It’s sadly not unanimously Anna, on the whole performing a fraction faster. Every little bit counts and combines.

The real speed difference is seen in the new browser (which is probably part of why I’ve had a positive experience with the E6- see review) That and the other improvements to browser UI.



Cheers for the tip, yasu!

Also check out the brightness difference of the two handsets. GSM Arena noted this was the brightest AMOLED display they had ever tested.

I’m very much looking forward to Symbian Anna for my N8. I think problems I’ve experienced with it are mostly now due to a need of a hard reset. I hope availability i’s not something silly like “END of August”.
