Christmas gift ideas: phones with Symbian
Although Android has been one of the most popular concepts during this last year, Nokia It continues to be one of the manufacturers that distributes the most terminals around the world, which means that Symbian represents a very important part of the mobile fleet.
The large number of users of this system make it a good candidate to equip the ideal gift for this Christmas. If we have decided that the phone that we are going to acquire, whether for us or not, comes with Symbian, it is time to review the different possible options.
Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 mini
In Nokia's hands, the N97 It is currently the most powerful terminal equipped with Symbian. It comes equipped with a 3.5-inch screen, a sliding QWERTY keyboard, and 32 GB of internal memory that we can increase through MicroSd cards to 48 GB.
But together with him, the Finnish manufacturer wanted to have a lighter, smaller and cheaper model. Is he Nokia N97 mini and it reduces the size of the screen to 3.2 inches and the internal memory to 8 GB. Ideal, therefore, if we want a more compact and lower-priced device.
Speaking of prices, the N97 is available in the big three, with Orange being the last to offer it during this month of December and costing between 0 and 309 euros, depending on the rates we choose. The N97 mini is offered with Movistar and with Vodafone and, as always, we can buy them free, costing, for example, the mini 499 euros.

Sony Ericsson Satio
Although when we talk about Symbian, Nokia automatically comes to mind, the truth is that there are other manufacturers that have licensed this operating system to offer it with their terminals. It is the case of Sony Ericsson Satio, a phone capable of competing smoothly with its rivals.
Especially gifted comes for photography, with a camera 12 megapixels with xenon flash, autofocus, face detection, image stabilizer, smile detection, ... That is, functions that we expect more from a compact camera than from a mobile phone.
Vodafone offers it, with prices ranging from 109 euros until the 269 euros, depending on the rates. We can see the details "in Xataka Móvil": https: //www.xatakamovil.com/sonyericsson/precios-del-sony-ericsson-satio-con-vodafone.

Samsung i8910 HD
Also Samsung offers its own terminal equipped with Symbian. Is he SSamsung i8910 HD and it goes to show that this operating system can also work without problems with a capacitive-type touch screen, despite the fact that until very recently, Nokia itself did not offer this option.
At first glance it may not seem that Symbian runs inside, since the TouchWiz interface has been implemented in it, but when we get to play with its 3.7-inch OLED-type screen we will surely see how this technology improves the display.
We can get it free for a few 460 euros and also find it in operators like Orange, although it is only available for companies and freelancers in it.

And if we were talking about capacitive type screens, the Nokia X6 It is the first Nokia terminal to include it. Although it disappears from its name, it is clearly a phone that falls within the XpressMusic range and the fact that they offer it with Comes With Music proves this.
Their 32 GB of storage space and autonomy of 35 hours in playback are other favor points. The problem with this model is that it has not yet been put up for sale, although it was expected before Christmas. Will it arrive on time? I wouldn't put my hand on the fire by itself.
