The Symbian operating system has fallen out of favour for high-end 3G phones though it was and is a pervasive base for low-end and feature phones from a range of manufacturers. Owned by Nokia, the most powerful version is Symbian^3 – but Nokia has since announced its alliance with Microsoft on Windows Phone, and its future smartphones will run exclusively on Windows Phone.
Other one-time Symbian manufacturers including Samsung and the erstwhile Sony Ericsson (now known as Sony) have bowed out too, to focus on more commercially popular OSes. For now, there’s still a trickle of Nokia lower-end 3G phones and non-3G phones launching on a more basic version, Symbian S40. Our reviews section has more on these phones.
