Nokia Symbian OS is Better Than Android: 5 Facts To Prove My Point
This article is specially for those who wants to buy Nokia devices but due to some recent news and popularity issues, they choose Android.
It is really controversial to say that Nokia OS is better than Android but some facts can never be ignored. And I have 5 such facts for discussion which proves Nokia Symbian Devices are better than Android.
You may deny my claim due to some recent news about fallback and decreasing popularity of Nokia but after reading this article, you will agree with me. You may have heard that Nokia sacked down 10,000 employees and also shut down some plants. But this does not mean that Nokia symbian OS is not as well as compared to Android. It just means that Nokia devices are not being sold as much as earlier and this depends on many facts like marketing is one of these.
You can’t ignore that Android is Google’s product, so it is gaining more marketing due to Internet services monopoly. But I am leaving this matter for discussion for another time. Now, my aim is to make you face the reality which matters the most to you.
Now a days, many people are going for Android devices (among which Samsung is #1 in smartphones), but it does not mean that you too should buy an Android device if you want to have a smartphone. You should judge your need and then you should decide which will suite you better. I am discussing 5 evergreen facts that will tell you why Nokia OS, Symbian is still better than Android.
1. Full Control Over Applications
Nokia Symbian OS provides you full control over all applications. Applications in Nokia Symbian devices don’t start running in background without your knowledge like Android devices. There are lots of unwanted applications in Android which runs in background and you can not stop them permanently without uninstalling them.
If you are already a S60 user, then you may better understand by installing ‘whatsapp’ in your Nokia S60 device. You will see that whatsapp will restart every time automatically when you will close that. This is the problem you will face for many applications in Android. If you want to use any application then it is okay for but if you don’t need some applications and even if then they start running, this may irritate you. But in Nokia s60 devices, you have full control of all applications.
2. Battery Backup
Nokia smartphones have much more battery backup as compared to Android devices. And you will need to start finding out solutions for extending your battery back up in Android devices. If you have any doubt about this, you can confirm from Android device holders.
One more thing they say that Android devices gives so many features so it has to use more battery power. At this point, I am agreeing but can anyone tell me why these devices are sucking our battery life with some applications which we do not require? And even if they are providing more features for sucking battery then I will say that they need to do some work on extending battery life too.
So, if you are a always connected to Internet then be aware that you will need to recharge your device battery atleast twice a day. But all Nokia Symbian devices does not use so much battery power. If you want to use a smartphone for all useful applications then you should go for Nokia Symbian OS devices, because they too have all useful and basic applications which you need and have more battery life for using them.

3. Enough Internal Memory
This is the best thing about Nokia, I realized just after switching to Android. Same applications, have larger size for Android devices as compared to Android devices. And therefore, same applications need less internal memory in Nokia Symbian smartphones for installation. This makes internal memory enough for installing more application in Nokia smartphones.
While more than 70% of Android devices have low internal memory problems after installing few applications. So, even on having uncountable Android applications you can use only few at a time.
4. Privacy and Security
After all, your privacy comes first! Would you like to give access of your private messages to some one else ? As Android is an open source operating system and therefore anyone can create any application easily. So, it is very difficult to identify the untrusted applications. These applications may be very dangerous to your privacy and can steal your private information for misuse.

5. No Unwanted Data Cost
If you have a data plan on your Android device then many background applications starts sucking your data too, just like battery. As many applications start running in background, and some of them are applications which uses internet data. These applications will start charging you unwanted data cost. But Nokia devices does not use internet without your permissions. They use internet data only when you use any application which uses internet data.
All these are the facts you can’t ignore even after increasing popularity of Android devices. So, I will not recommend you to go for Android devices or Nokia devices. I will just say that judge your requirements and then decide which is best for you. I hope this article will help you to think about Nokia smartphones once again.
