Now in the market of smart phones, iPhone, also with other Apple devices are too hot, and most of the people think there is no other product could challenge the position of Apple iPhone. But actually it is not the case. Now that the Nokia N8 has shipped, The Nokia N8 is the first Symbian^3 smartphone released globally and big emphasis is placed on its imaging capabilities.Could it challenge iPhone 4 ? Below we would have a simple review and comparison to find out more features of the two hot devices.
Nokia N8: Hardware Impresses, but Software Underwhelms
The new Nokia N8 is the Finnish company’s first successful touchscreen phone. It’s neat, good-looking and has a battery that will take you safely from one day to the next. You’ll probably still want to recharge it overnight just to be sure, but our tests saw it last happily into a second and even a third day between charges. Plus, it’s a Nokia, and has a hugely familiar operating system that’s intuitive and simple, so there’s only the gentlest new-interface learning curve.
In fact, the system has been greatly improved from earlier touchscreen versions so it’s less erratic and more accessible. The phone’s anodised aluminium casing is solid and businesslike, especially in the dark grey and silver colour options (lime green not so much). It’s no slouch in the features department: a class-leading 12-megapixel camera with Xenon flash means you can rely on it if your job entails taking site-visit photographs or high-quality video. Even better, thanks to a mini-HDMI socket and supplied cable you can painlessly play back the video or photographs on a full-size flatscreen TV, say – handy for presentations. And when you’re on the road, the excellent BBC iPlayer application will mean you can play back last night’s EastEnders on the hotel room TV.
Nokia has top class push-email features – though BlackBerry is still the gold standard here and many users will still prefer the convenience of a real keyboard instead of a touchscreen version. Overall, though, this is a powerful smartphone which will serve business users well.
iPhone 4G -The iPhone 4.0 is too hot today. Many refer to it as the Apple iPhone 4G, but that term is actually incorrect. Regardless, you are probably wondering if the smartphone is worth its value. First, lets consider the iPhone 4 cost. To upgrade from your current AT&T plan, the price is $199.99 for a 16 GB unit and $299.99 for a 32 GB unit. However, if you don’t currently have an AT&T contract, the price of an unlocked iPhone 4 without a contract is $599.99 and $699.99 for a 16 GB and 32 GB respectively. Ultimately, if you are upgrading, the price generally isn’t a huge concern. Now let’s take a look at some of the iPhone 4 features. Probably the most notable is the video calling, which allows you to video conference with a contact who also has the model. While this feature is definitely an example of superior technological innovation, not every smartphone consumer has an iPhone 4. The 960 x 640 resolution makes the interface of the model eye-catching. Videos can be recorded in HD, and the display of the model is probably better than that of your own personal computer. At the same time, don’t fail to realize that the iPhone 4 battery life is going to take a hit with the display of these distinguished graphics.
