Manu, 26 Aug 2009Thanx dupas......One more thing .... Have u guys experienced any problems with the n82 ....any... moreN82 negative points (after being compared to N86, N97 and 5800):
1. Ridiculously small screen. (2.4 inch as compared to 2.6, 3.5 and 3.2 on the other three devices)
2. Dim screen (the brightness and contrast are not as good as the three mentioned indoors but is very visible under direct sunlight)
3. Keypad needs getting used to (Trust me, for the first few days, you will be frustrated using the keypad. But after 1 week or so, you will eventually find it a leisure to type on it)
4. Daylight photos tend to be a bit washed out. (the colours of the photos are not as good as the N86, N95 and N97 but the night shots are speechless)
5. Mediocre quality plastic. (It is inevitable to hear creaks coming from your N82)
6. Position of the multimedia button. (Sometimes you may accidentally hit it instead of the 'back' or 'cancel' key)
7. Sliding mechanism (Dust easily accumulates inside the camera, they say that it is because of the controversial sliding mechanism)
I think those are the only negative points of the N82. Beyond that, it is the BEST N-series phone ever released.
Sadly, there are no more firmware updates for this phone. (According to Daniel Danning from Nokia Conversation)

Nokia also has this false belief that 3D graphic accelerator does not play an important role in the overall phone performance. Rigid eh?
I doubt that Nokia will ever release another Xenon equipped phone because they know that if they release another Xenon equipped phone, then the rest of their phones will not sell anymore. This happened when N79 and N85 were released in my country. Even now, everybody goes for the N82 rather than the N79 and N85.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 19701. I do not know about 16GB but I am currently using an 8GB microSDHC card.
2. The stereo speakers are loud enough but the audio quality is no match for the N95 8GB, N85 and 5800 XpressMusic.
3. Overall, the N82 is far better than the N85 if you can live with the 2.4 inch screen. It is also lighter than the N85 with better CPU plus a dedicated graphic card.
Hope this helps.
Manu, 25 Aug 2009How is the music quality of the N82.... Is it better than the N73 Music edition and the 5800 x... moreIn terms of audio, the N82 is no match for the 5800. The N82's audio quality is loud but average quality while the 5800's audio quality is loud and high quality. I have used both phones before.
I am currently using the black N82 because of its camera. My second phone will be either the 5800 or the N97 mini.
Obaid, 25 Aug 2009Hi all
i will be thankful if any one quickly tells me if black color n82 differs n82 silver c... moreIn terms of quality, there are no significant differences. There are some online websites saying that the build quality of the silver one is more sturdy than the black. Honestly speaking, the black looks better. I have changed my silver to a black one and it looks gorgeous.
My black N82 does suffer from some creaks but then that is only at the microphone part.

And are firmware updates still available for this phone....
Actually, N79 is not a bad phone afterall. It's a good good phone. But since it was released during the times when N85, N96 were released also and when N95 8GB and N82 have already been released long time ago, it's not a great device either. N79 is only considered a midrange phone today while N82 is considered a high-end phone two years ago. N79 is better since it has an updated software, longer battery life and some more little extras like fm transmitter, naviwheel. But N82 is a workhorse - 90mb of free ram (together with n95 8gb,it has the largest amount of available ram on any symbian phones), 130mb of internal memory, 3D accelerator and xenon flash which make it standout among the rest. I don't think we shall see a Nokia Symbian phone with a Xenon flash and 3D accelerator again anytime soon.

I've tested my N82 with a lot of benchmarking tools and I've also installed a demo app (which I've already forgot the name of the app since I've downloaded it sometime ago). And you can really see the advantage you get with the 3D accelerator. N82 achieved some 60+, 500+, 2000+ scores on benchmark tests whereas my other Symbian phone only get a fraction of those scores. And also, graphics looks stunning on N82, whereas it looks stuttering and with delays on my other phone. And also try to play Global Race on your N82. You'll see than N82 can really decode graphics with high frame rates.

memo, 26 Aug 2009 Is N82s memory card expandable to 8gb or 16gb? IS N82s speakers loud and pure enough? I... moreAs you can see from the specsheet here in gsmarena, N82 officially supports up to 16gb microsd cards. The loudspeaker are quite loud but not as loud as that from N95. N82 is generally better than N85. N85 only looks good on paper but performance-wise, it's worse than N82.
It's been a while since my last post here but I hope to get some fast answers: What was the name of the site where you give your IMEI and they send you 2 files needed for hacking you phone. I think it was chinese...Anybody? Thanks

please answer me as fast as possible because iam going to buy a new mobile. thxs on advance
I am using N82 for more than a year now, and I really love this phone. The only thing which I don't like much is its 2.4 inch screen (so I bought N97 too) _but_ N82 is really really good. It can run lot of applications and games, memory never runs out (but in N97 it ran out-of-memory too quickly). Its photo capturing speed at 5MP is good and I can take a picture of running Fan with full speed; and nothing is blur in picture means the Fan seems stopped in the picture while the same image captured by N97 shows Fan in running conditions.
So I recommend N82 to anyone who wants to get a good and reasonable-price N-Series mobile.
Manu, 25 Aug 2009How is the music quality of the N82.... Is it better than the N73 Music edition and the 5800 x... moreThe Speakers are stereo just like 5800. This sounds so crisp and at the same time loud. Would say they are about the same 5800 sounds slightly better but thats because it is a music phone this too is good. As I have used both sets I would pick the 5800 for sound but overall features in music player the n82 a little extra features that make it cool like the virtulizations. Battery life of 5800 is slightly better too, hope this helps.
