I had a long discussion with someone on Twitter today, and along the line, he made the following statement:
Symbian is the most power efficient mobile OS there is. Which really isn’t saying much because it doesn’t do much
I may be wrong, but the above statement seems to stem from ignorance or just plain fanboyism. I used two Symbian devices (Nokia N8 and Nokia E7) this year, and there was NOTHING that I got done on Android, iOS, WindowsPhone or Blackberry that I didn’t get done on those devices.
Yes; each OS does specific things in different ways, and some have strength in one area and weakness in that other area. But for crying out loud, statements like the above just….. stink. Let’s call rubbish what it is – RUBBISH.
No; I don’t use Symbian any longer. As a matter of fact, I am moved on. But facts are facts, and lies are lies.
Can anyone tell me in clear terms what AndroidOS does that Symbian does not do? No bullshitting. Just say it straight: “You can browse the internet on Android, but cannot do that on Symbian“.
For the avoidance of doubt, I am not asking for things that Android does better than Symbian. I am asking for things that Android does that Symbian is not capable of.
Any bullshitting comments will be deleted. I’m not going to waste my time responding to bullshit and going round in circles.
