i don't even feel like arguing about the
This isn't even a comparison. The C500 is a Microsoft Smartphone, which brings with it poor battery life, a poorer and more expensive applications set compared to Series 60, lots of bugs and crashes, very little support as opposed to the large community of Series 60, and is more difficult to use than Series 60. The MS Smartphone platform just isn't worth the crashes, bugs and poor battery life. Go with the 7610.
What do the MS Smartphone fans have to say about this? I can't help but agree with it I'm afraid. Ok, he's wrong about the community point (MoDaCo rules), and you all seem to think that the C500's battery is going to last weeks, but everything else is true? What do you think of this comment?
but how the hell do you compare something which isn't on the market against something that is.... also i have a e200 and besides crashes caused by experimenting with my own software(which ofcourse is not the os's fault) it never crashed.. the battery runs the full 4 days with gprs on the entire time... good sound quality, and i never got hung up for no reason.. never missed calls that where made (in a way of them never ariving on the phone)....
I have been testing some symbian phones at my old work (which was reviewing them for there site)... and looked for good software finding absolutely nothing of real value...
Symbian people have what I like to call the "Mac pride" everything that goes wrong with there phone is caused by the 3rd party software or some hardware thingy not the os itself. Pride also keeps them from hidding the issues in there minds, like they are emberased.
While if the same happens to a ms phone they blame the os. (don't argue me on this
, it's just based on some human knowledge
) (I am also not saying that mac os is bad.. just that some people don't accept the fact that it also has problems.).
And Ms people are more down to earth.. it crashes? oh well restart will do.
