In the past couple of months, the smartphone OS market has been a hot topic. In that hot topic, Android has been the center of attraction, while the OS which is the most widely used in the world; Symbian was lost in the crowd. There is no doubt in the fact that the Symbian S60 v5 for touchscreen smartphones is the slowest of all and this is the reason for its criticism.
The arrival of Symbian^3 with N8 is destined to change things forever for Symbian. The Nokia N8 in a benchmark test against N97 showed its power. The N8 is 180% faster than the N97 and 54% faster than Omnia HD. In the FPC bench 3D test the result was 60fps and it never fell below it.
Omnia HD vs N97
These results are very good sign for Symbian because its future depends on Symbian^3. Let us see whether it will be strong enough to compete with the power house Android.
