  • Ultimate Voice Recorder 6.1.1
  • Total Recall 4.20
  • SymbRecorder 5.0.0

Note:

  • "Poor Quality" in the table above means there are audio gaps in recorded clips. However Total Recall 4.20 and SymbRecorder 5.0.0 both have a "Beep Suppression Tune" option, so the record quality can always be improved. Listening to phone call conversations played back from recorded clips, it seems that the record quality of SymbRecorder is a little better than the others.
  • "Perfect Quality" in the table above means there are no audio gaps in recorded clips. It's full quality without audio loss.
  • Currently on the market I have not find any Nokia recorder which is totally beep free on Symbian^3 phones. The team of SymbRecorder and Total Recall both said they are "working on it", we have to wait.

Summary

  • Ultimate Voice Recorder 6.1.1 is a good Nokia recorder. It has advanced client/server structure, and has some special features like setting recorded clips as time alarm sounds. But its beep free technique is relatively weak.
  • Currently there are only two Nokia recorders in the world which can work in beep free mode perfectly on S60 V3 FP1, V3 FP2, V5 platform: Total Recall 4.20 and SymbRecorder 5.0.0. They both have the most advanced beep suppression technique globally.
  • Total Recall 4.20 doesn't have much features, it is simple, easy to use.
  • SymbRecorder 5.0.0 has most features, moreover it is the smallest one in size (see the green circles on the right picture). It also has advanced client/server structure, the server program is powerful but it is really tiny (less than 60KB) with less consumption of resources. On the whole, it is a user-friendly high quality beep free Nokia recorder.

Conclusion

According to the comparison above, I certainly recommend SymbRecorder 5.0.0, it's the best Beep Free Nokia Call Recorder.
