True Multitasking demo on 808 PureView with more than 20 applications running in background.

We all know how good is Symbian at true and live multitasking. In fact it is miles ahead of other competing Smartphone OSes. Android with ICS and Jelly Bean has done some amount of catch-up, but still can’t compete with the number of apps Symbian can handle in true multitasking (without freezing them in background) and with the same efficiency. Forget about iOS and Windows Phone OS which don’t support the true multitasking at all. WP8 will bring live multitasking but it seems maximum no. of apps will be limited to 7-8.

So how good is 808 PureView being the best Symbian phone ever and running the latest version of Nokia Belle FP1. Trust us, it is the best ever. Even with 21 apps open and running in background it wouldn’t sneeze. Switching the apps and scrolling through them is breeze. Even closing the apps is the fastest ever on any Symbian device. With 21 apps open, free RAM remains about 255 MB, hence opening any new apps is near instant.

    Good alternative is also the nice and fast Opera Browser 😉

    • Opera mini is the fastest on Symbian. Opera mobile is fast too 🙂

  • athresh

    I m hoping to get pureview 808 soon , I have few questions
    1) Does it come with 3*4 keypad support??
    2)How good is the browser???

    • Answer to first point is yes, it does support alphanumeric keypad.Browser is good for daily use. The best ever on any symbian phone.

    Symbian is really good in multitasking indeed (saw also about 50 running apps), but I have to say that the “multitasking-king” is the N9 (Meego/Harmattan 1.2)! It’s awesome… 😉

      P.S. You are recording with an “808-looking” N8!? 🙂

      • I mostly use N8 to shoot 808 PureView videos 🙂 Never needed a compact after I bought N8 1.5 years back.

    • N9 with PR1.3 is really fast, but still in my opinion is the only one comparable to 808 PureView in ease of multitasking.
      Yes in style of multitasking nothing beats N9 🙂
