I want to give you ten reasons why I think Symbian is still better than its natural rival, Android. Price. Android phones need more processor power and internal memory, so they save money on other materials and components. With the same amount of money, you can buy a Symbian phone with better materials and hardware features than any Android device. GPS. Ovi Maps are far better than Google Maps. It is not needed to be on-line to use Ovi Maps, and you can get guided voice directions anywhere in the world. Camera. Usually, Android phones do not have dedicated camera buttons, including the controls on the touch screen. Sensors, optics and overall camera, video and picture quality are worse than their Nokia counterparts. Battery life. Symbian was designed for a low energy consumption. Symbian smartphones have a better battery life than Android ones. No data plan required. Today it is becoming more and more common to contract data service to use it on your smartphone. Symbian devices can be used in this way, with a permanent connection, but it is not needed, you still can use most of it without one. Android phones are more “internet” directed devices, almost every Google service needs a connection. Form factor. There is little difference among Android models, vast majority are touch screen phones. Nokia Symbian catalogue has touch screen models, sliders, full qwerty and every usual form factor you need. Support. You do not buy an Android phone. You buy a Samsung, HTC or a Huawei device, and guarantee and support are done by those companies. Nokia has the best support service worldwide. Fragmentation. There are different Android versions, sometimes with overlaying manufacturer or network operator software. This fragmentation makes difficult for programmers to adapt their creations to different screen sizes or Android versions. As a result, you can buy and download a non working program from Android Market to your phone. Privacy. Android ‘with Google’, includes the usual Google apps. This company already has a lot of personal information from its users derived from the search engine. I am afraid to give Google, or any other big company, my mobile information: search, mail or location. With Symbian you are not relying so much on Nokia, for example, I have the option to use Ovi Store without having an Ovi email account.

cuz Symbian gives best user interface than java like android. even though symbian is quite slower in new technnlogy (when compared to android only) it is no.1 & have more satisfied users (like me) but i think soon days android become no.1 because the main symbian provider nokia is stoping its symbian mobile production and get focused on bloody windows os [ The real feelings of a gr8 symbian user ]

Symbian and android are two main operating systems for smart phones. Android is newly operating system with new and advanced technology. Symbian is old operating system, and comes in market before android . Symbian is easy to operate and having all features as in android . So symbian is more popular than android.But today android gives more features than symbian . And techonoly of android is faster so today symbian is not popular than android.

Canalys estimates that Google has taken the market lead from Nokia and shipped 32.9% of all smartphone - about 33.3 million devices. Within one year, Google surpassed RIM (now at 14.4% share), Apple (16.2%) and Nokia (31.0%). In Q4 2009, Google held just 8.7% of the market and was able, if we believe Canalys, to grow its shipments by 615.1%, well ahead of Apple's 85.9%, RIM's 36.0% and Nokia's 30.0%. Microsoft, by the way, is the only large platform provider with negative growth. Canalys believes that just 3.1 million Microsoft phones shipped in Q4, down from 3.9 million in the year before. Since its rivals posted dramatic growth, Microsoft's market share was cut more than in half - from 7.2% to 3.1%. Microsoft recently said that it shipped about 2 million Windows Phone 7 devices between October and December.

because nokia loanch symbian for mobile device and symbian also support Java application, Symbian Os can load chap hardware configration, but Now tuchscrean mobile Symbian are difficult to use , we can not use Symbian in C-Type screen (because small icon), so nokia use R-type screen(stick touch) ; some time Symbian os hang at last we can say symbian was best but now in touch system Android & BADA os is best because this are fast,easy to use

Because Symbian is a older player in the market unlike Android, which is a new girl in the town!!! But as it is said, Every generation is wiser than the previous generation and claims to be wiser than the future generations which they are actually not....!!!
