  • The more i use older Symbian phones, the more i start to love them. The things they did in the past. I wonder what was the REAL reason behind killing it.

    I can only dream of one thing, and that is “revival of Symbian OS”. Heck release it in low category phones such as this, and be done with the abomination this ‘feature phone’ has, or Symbian S40 for example.

    • Oh I can tell you why they killed Symbian. I used to love Nokia phones, and I bought my last one in 2010 (Nokia 5800).
      Spec wise Nokia always had some really nice phones. My 5800 for instance had phenomenal sound quality. The downside was always the OS and more specifically the UX.
      The whole thing was a mess with different ways of navigating and you’d always struggle to find the right settings, and finally Symbian was slow and clunky.
      I switched to Windows Phone when MS launched it and boy was that great. I was used to slow phones with outdated UX but my HTC Mozart ran totally smooth and the UX was top notch. I didn’t mind the lack of apps since I was used to having really bad ones for Symbian.
      Bottom line: They killed Symbian because it was a mess and couldn’t keep up.

    • Exactly, ye phones dikhne me zabardast lagte hain but it is embarrassing jab phone karna ho to ulta kar ke kaan pe rakhna paray :D

  • Nokia should not go for revival / modification of old models. It is an age of competition and should think of manuufacturing ” Touch phones
    with unique features.

    • Oh my this is the keypad phone that I’m looking for!!! You can easily use with its size you can keep it on your pocket safely without any worry if it will get crack… And also NOKIA is known for its durability of their products… Oh my!!
