"Does Symbian offer any advantages when put up against more up-to-date rivals? For power users, the answer's no."

WRONG WRONG WRONG. Please stop pedalling this claptrap. Symbian remains the only smartphone OS that can both easily tether by USB and bluetooth and also download email attachments from secure servers. What is the definition of 'power users'? I use those features of my Symbian every single day and would be lost without them. Properly useful stuff like this is what makes a smartphone a smartphone, not silly webapps and flashy OSs.

I got the wife two nokia phones in the past year an e63 and a c3.

All i can say is die Symbian die. Symbian is a shocking OS, its like something from the 90's.

I swear I must have speaks weeks in total tying to make those phones usable.

At the weekend I cracked a bought her an orange san Francisco, only £90 from argos. Within an hour I had it unlocked and filled to the brim with all the apps she needs. Android is light years ahead of Symbian.

Nokia are a mess, they should have just gone with android.

@ J4cK - depends entirely on what you want to use it for. I would take this one every time.

@ Brian - it doesn't look like something from the 90s - it is in colour for starters! The OS has been 'usable' for years and is still 'usable' now. It just doesn't treat you like an idiot. In accordance with what I wrote above, Android seems to be slowly catching up with Symbian, but the problem is that it is catering for, and written by, a large influx of customers who are traditionally 'feature phone' buyers and therefore only the LCD features will be looked after. Long time smartphone users still find weaknesses and gaping holes in the basic functionality. Please don't shout about things you know nothing of.

I agree with scamevoli. Symbian is far less polished compared with Android and iOS, but in terms of sheer versatility it is still ahead. I can do much more with Symbian than with Android right now.

i have a 5230 which i bought as a stopgap and basically just use as a satnav now because i have a galaxy s. the 5230 only cost £60 and this c5 doesnt appear any better to me other than adding wifi, doesnt seem worth the extra £100 to me. i never found s60 that bad to use anyway, if it got rid of the double tap to select and changed to a capacitive screen i wouldnt have too many complaints about it
