Nokia fanboy say thet the N82 is better than X1, is it true? look at the fact below :
1. WVGA (X1) is 5 times better than QVGA.
2. 528 MHz (X1) is faster than 300+ MHz.
3. X1 has QWERTY, Touch screen and joystick and N82 has not QWERTY, no touch screen etc
4. X1 has longer life battery at 1500 Li-PO than N82 has.
5. X1 has 4 LED light
6. X1 use 6.1 WM OS.
7. X1 is made of premium steel but N82 is made of plastick.
8. X1 has HSUPA but N82 is no HSUPA
9. X1 has VGA resolution of video on WVGA resolution screen, It means WVGA will increase resolution of VGA video as much as 76800pxl. In other word, You can watch a movie better than the device quality it self and look at N82, VGA resolution of video on QVGA resolution screen, it means QVGA will decrease VGA resolution of video (307200 to 76800).In other word, Nokia fanboy never enjoy VGA resolution of video at real quality on the ohone screen.Wasting money

10. X1 can show more pixels of Megapixels camera picture because resolution of screen which can show pixels as much as 384000 pxl rather than N82 can only show 76800pxl on screen so althought you use 5MP camera,only 76800pxl can be showed because limitation of QVGA screen resolution.In other word 3.2 MP on phone WVGA resolution screen is much better than 5MP on phone QVGA resolution screen.
11. 65000 color is more than enough and not make the phone more expensive. Look at expensive 16M color, do you thing there is an object has 16M color variation? is you car ? You painted your car with red, blue, black, yellow, green, pink, brown, purple and what else because there are stil 8 color not 16MILLION color variation.You can't detect color as mush as 16M color variation at once sight and your eyes have limitation.

Wasting money for buying a phone with useless devices

You were right that N82 is better than classic X1 haha..

Ok, the N95/N96/N82 is not comparable to X1. They're in different segments and comparing them would only embarass Nokia. Also, regarding size, the X1 is a bit wider and a bit longer, but alot thinner. In total, the X1 has a volume of 97cm while the N95 is 110cm The N96 is a bit smaller but still larger than the X1 at 102cm.

In short, the X1 is smaller than the full-feature Nokias and still beating them on features.

The next one really annoys me. Windows Mobile 6 and Windows Embedded CE DOES NOT have a cap in color depth at 65k. That is simply not true, stop saying that.

Windows Mobile 6 (and WeCE) supports pixel depths of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 24, and 32 bpp. (Source: msdn.microsoft.com)

16bits = 65k colors, 18bit = 262k colors, 24bit = 16,7m colors.

So, WM doesn't directly support 18 bit colordepth (262k). Are we bothered? No.
The reason most WM phones use 65k is that converting the framebuffer takes CPU cyles. Using GPUs takes more power and costs more with little benefit.

WM doesn't cap at 65k colors, the CPUs and cost-aspects do.

The Xperia seems is a no expense spared kind of project and I'm sure every level headed person will agree that sweet screen is one of the best ever produced.

CLASSIC

look at N82, N95 and N96 has :
no QWERTY, no touch screen,bulky, made of plastic toy but expensive. only 300+MHz, only QVGA (VGA resolution video and Megapixels picture quality will be decreased because VGA resolution to QVGA or 307200 pxl to 76800 pxl)Because of QVGA resolution screen, the devices like VGA resolution of video, HIGH AMOUNT OF COLOR VARIATION LIKE 16M COLOR AND 5MP PICTURE to be useless devices. In other word. A phone with only QVGA resolution screen can make multimedia quality will be decressed and nothing special on the phone. To guys who have a phone with only QVGA resolution screen, they are no face for comparing their multimedia phone quality with this Xperia quality has.

  • indra

Ok guys, look at XPERIA has :
1. Elagant curve design with QWERTY, touch screen and joystick.
2. WVGA resolution at 3 inches screen which make the VGA resolution of video can be enjoyed at real quality (VGA to WVGA or 307200pxl to 384000pxl is great, it means, WVGA will increase the VGA resolution as much as 76800pxl. In other word, you can watch a movie better than the original quality it self and you can watch a movie on full wide screen and by WVGA resolution,you can see more pixels as much as 384000 pxls of MEGAPIXELS picture camera on screen etcTo people who want to buy an expensive phone because of VGA resolution video and MEGA PIXELS picture camera, I suggest you choice it rather than you buy an expensive phone but you cant enjoy the devices at real quality. Its wasting money.
3. long life battery at 1500 LI-POLYMER (not LI-ION)
4. 528 MHz processor.
5. 6.1 WM OS
6. 65000 color. Many people think that 65k is weak but not for me, 65000 color is more than enough and smart, number of color is just talking about amount of color variation. Do you thing your house and car have 16 MILLION color variation ? you painted them with red, yellow, blue, green, purple, white, black, pink, sky blue, dark blue, brown, gray and what else because there are still only 12 color not 16 million color variation. Tell me what thing/object has 16 M color variation? Can you detect an object whether the object has 16M variation color at once sight? The phone screen will show number of color depend on color amount of object has. You know the 16M color is expensive device but the device cant be used at maximumly.wasting money!
7. HSUPA and HSDPA.
8. No VGA output. According to my experience and experiment, the best quality of vga resolution output is only on 7 inches screen size and if the screen size is up to 8 inches so there will be many broken pixels on the screen. I think, I will save my money rather than spend it for VGA output device can show the best quality only on 7 inches screen. I prefer to enjoy something on WVGA resolution phone screen or I will use my DVD player to watch movie on tv screen. Remember, every device has cost so you must pay it. I dont want to spend much money for device which cant be enjoyed at real or good quality. its wasting money.

you are right dude, HSUPA stands for High speed uplink packet Access, basically HSUPA enabled phones fall into the category of 3.5G (4G would be WIMAX AND LTE-Long Term Evolution)

HSUPA enables the user to upload data on the server through wireless link at high speeds like 3.4Mbps, it will always lower than HSDPA.

Like in GSM you have EDGE similarly in UMTS (WCDMA) you have HSPA =HSDPA+HSUPA

  • Tsepz

. . . . .wow. . . . That was realy informative (sarcasm)
What does HSUPA stand for? Ive been assuming it stands for High Speed Uplink Packet Access or something like that LMAO!
What does it do?

  • Mr. Right

oh yes, i almost forgot. its SYMBIAN os is to DIE FOR as well. totally KILLS windows mobile 6.1(/sarcasm).

  • Mr. Right

yes, the n82 does so much more except for a FULL QWERTY, TOUCHSCREEN, oh and WVGA res. yup! it sure does alot more. LOL!

oh yes, and LOL at 'HSUPA-enabled' countries.

  • Tsepz

By HSUPA enabled im pretty sure you all knew what i meant, im just getting sick of seeing same old N82, N95, E90 vs. X1, QVGA this, VGA that, TV-Out here,no Touchscreen there. . .blah blah posts and no real info and interesting facts about what it and WM6.1 are bringing.
What does HSUPA do? And what does it stand for?
