It doesn't end with just that. Why would they need to set brightness levels to low for n82 just to imply that N82 is not meant to be best for visualization functions? They could just let the brightness come to satisfactory levels, that't won't make it ground-breaking in movie-watching still. Given the dimensions of the screen alone and everybody gets the hint that it's not meant to dethrone n95 8gb or n96 in the video department. There is absolutely no need for pathetic restrictions just for the sake of highlighting the idea of assignations.
to iolo003: Sorry dude, I meant, "can you tell me?"
haha.. my bad making all of that crap up too.. Thanks bro, Now can you ell me where did you get this "light control application"? Thanks a lot.
dude, you wasted your time making all of that crap up. Hey, were not talking here about what phone is designated for what. First off, N series devices are, according to nokia, all-around devices. Now tell me what's wrong with how I saw the situation.
It doesn't necesarily mean they should throw in more effort. It's only a simple tweak, and it won't cost them anything to just alter it in the firmware configurations. If thay can make it just better at the cost of nothing. Why couldn't they? That's what I mean
chris, 28 Oct 2008first off... to anonymous(just below this post). how could you say so? n82 is just an or... morehow u look at n82 is not how nokia looks at this phone. nokia created n82 for the purpose of being a camera phone thats why they gave emphasis to its camera by adding xenon flash, but limits its other potentials by throwing in a smaller screen rather than a larger screen; candybar form is compact and solid yet limited in functions; screen brightness was set to dim compared to other phones indicating that n82 can be also used to watch movies but not the best in that department; it plays music but music experience is rather lousy because of the lack of music keys on the phone and on the headset; a smaller battery capacity was thrown in rather than a larger one. nokia emphasized the camera capabilities on n82 but limits its other multimedia functions. every nseries device has its own positioning and target audience. if people want the best camera phone, then n82 is the right choice since its apparently the best in this area. if people want a good music & gaming device, then n81 is the right phone since its music quality and gaming capabilities are one step ahead of the rest. for those people who want an a complete multimedia powerhouse, then n95 8gb is that device because its form factor suits its purpose. n96 for tv and video playback because of dvb-h and dedicated video processor. see? every nseries device has its own positioning. n82 is the strongest when it comes to imaging, n81 is the strongest when it comes to music & gaming, n95 8gb is the strongest when it comes to media viewing because of its large screen, n96 is the strongest when it comes to media consumption. you may say that n82 can do everything that ever other nseries does but its expertise is set on imaging only. n82 can play good music and good games but not better than n81. it can be used to watch movies but not as good as n95 8gb/n96. so on and so forth...
chris, 28 Oct 2008Another thing.. about nokia.. I'm pissed with how they treat N82. really dissapointed w... moreBecause if n0kia will thr0w m0re effort to impR0ve n82 like f0r example the screen, it will be able to beat the new m0del they are about to create. Thats what im thinking
chris, 28 Oct 2008Another thing..
I'm pissed with how they treat N82.
really dissapointed w... moredude you have to install light control app on ur n82, its free to download.. it wil allow you 2 control screen brightnes without hacking your device
it works in marvel c",
I'm pissed with how they treat N82.
really dissapointed with nokia, not woth n82.
People complain about the screen brightness of n82. Nokia couldn't fix it with next firmwares. I really think fixing that woulnd't cost them anything, it isn't too hard to ask for right?
So ok, enough with that if they couldn't fix it. The least that they could do is to allow consumers to fix it on their own. People did it by hacking their phones. Which is great..
Now here comes nokia again with their sick idea of making the V30 firmware of n82 unhackable.
What's up with that?
...for me this phone is awesome, clear sound quality, great 5mp camera, sexy and simple but elegant phone... Design 8.6, features 8.8, performance 8.8, this phone is awesome.... your money is just worth it...
to anonymous(just below this post).
how could you say so? n82 is just an ordinary phone? Of course it's revolutionary. It revolutionizes how people come up with night shots just by using their cameraphone. That alone is a great fact. The xenon flash makes a difference. Now can you name one N9x device that could beat it when it comes to that? There's none. Now if we will put it the way you said so, then I could easily say N9x devices are just ordinary phones too. If n82 does not offer anything spectacular in your eyes then how could n9x devices please you? It's as simple as that.
Besides, no one cares if n82 is flagship or not. It has features that kick butt and that's what counts.
I won't buy a phone just because it's a flagship device, I'll buy it because it offers excellent features.
Because if you're looking at it that way, you're looking at it way too insensible..
Louie, 27 Oct 2008To tell everyone here honestly, i don't own Nokia N82 yet. I have my nokia N95 8GB but after ... morea candybar phone like n82 will never be a flagship device because it's not revolutionary and innovative. it is just an ordinary phone. a flagship device should bear a stunning design and form factor like all N9x.
To All who complain regarding their N82 phones:
1) Is your phone Original?
2) Is it brand new?
3) Does it have warranty?
If yes to all, then i don't think you have any problems if you find that something is not functioning well. Go to a Nokia Center, let them check your phone and demand replacement if defective. I don't believe those guys writing here complaining about their phone after 2, 3 or 6 months. Warranty is for 1 year. Batteries are replaceable within 6 months.
My phone is 7 months already. Battery was not good so I had Nokia replaced it. Now its good up to 3days with mormal use.
Had it upgraded to V30 a month ago, very fast and steadier.
Installed 30 applications, no hang ups. No problems.
So guys, next time you complain, read, check and understand nos 1 to 3 before you start bad mouthing N82 here otherwise you must have a fake and second hand phone.
I'm just wondering.... Where is the best place to buy a brand new n82,? I buy a k850 @ fry's but after 5 months it's not working well... I live at Texas so I'm hoping that there is a store where I can buy a n82 last atleast a year.... I was wondering maybe n82 is the answer??????? Thanks in advance!!!!! By the way, can n82 take pix on it's front cam????
daimos, 27 Oct 2008Got it Louie. Thanks. Just wonderin why some people tend to say things that does not concern ... moreTo tell everyone here honestly, i don't own Nokia N82 yet.
I have my nokia N95 8GB but after reading all the comments about Nokia N82, I regret it alot having this black bulky slidy phone.
I'm expecting that sooner or later. I'll have this one as well.
I love this phone. REALLY!
For me, this one should be Nokia's FLAGSHIP.
NOT THAT NOKIA N96.
IT'S NOT WORTH EVERY SINGLE BUCKS WE'LL BE SPENDING, IF INCASE YOUR GOINT TO GET ONE.
To all people who complain about the features, performance of this multimedia monster the N82.
Regarding the camera I have taken many pictures and compared it with dedicated digicams like my 5mp Sony and 7mp Canon (Powershot TX1). To my astonishment, some photos taken with the N82 are better than these digicams. In fact the videos taken with N82 easily outdo the videos taken by my Sony digicam (DSC-W5). Only area where the N82 gets beaten is the focussing speed and shot to shot speed.
The music quality is great and I have observed the bass factor to be much lower than Sony Ericsson phones.
Wifi is absolutely wonderful and gets easily connected to wifi hotspots whereever it is available. I have tried this in many hotels and browsing through wifi is a breeze.
GPS connectivity is fast and reliable. I use google maps for navigation and it is much faster as Nokia maps is not having much coverage in my country except for major cities.
This phone is fully loaded with features like 5 mp cam with Xenon flash, vga video @30fps, TV out, WIFI, GPS, etc.. and it has all the features that the expensive and high end N-series phone have. Everyday I am installing new software and never I have found this phone hanging or getting slowed down.
Some of the software that I have installed are Fring, Google maps, Cclock, Large time, Ccam, Time bar, Light control, Nokia sports tracker, Nokia step counter, Opera mini, Calcium, Mr Lock, Dictionary, Mirage money, Marble maze, Accelerinvaders, Joikuspot, Log export, Energy profiler, Phone locator and dozens of themes.
Believe me, this phone is an outstanding device and don't get deceived by some people who are repeatedly bashing this phone in this forum. It is only 3 months I am having this phone and been visiting this forum daily since this phone was launched. Everyday I am having fun with this phone and I am extremely delighted to have this phone instead of N95 8Gb or N85 or N96 or Samsung Omnia or Iphone because this is less expensive but provides better features in a easy to use form factor and rugged body.
