Loco Dice, 01 Oct 2010I had N82 and now i have N95 8GB and i tell you for sore the xenon flash is near LED flash for... more I don't need a camera protection because i have a hose for entire phone. I learn to use it after i change once the n82 camera glass because i broke the cover button (in my pocket) so i was obligate to buy the entire mechanism.anyway..the n95 slide mechanism concept is one of the strongest one. I buy the n95 from my uncle and he have it from 2 years. no slide problems. I read it from forums about slide too. N95 supports Ovi maps. BUT Nokia Maps and Ovi Maps 5UCK5. I have garmin tx(best in driving) and google maps(best one in details). there are a lot of GPS app., much better than Nokia offers. Sygic, tom tom, route 66. And it was dangerous to look in the N82 display while driving. It was too little for a GPS assistent.useless in my car!
And N95 8gb it is expensive because is the best (equilibrate) non-touchscreen smartphone in the market. The n86 have more camera pixel but less display. N85, good design, much CPU speed but not dual, no GPU...and so long.. The n95 8gb is the most equilibrate, the best choice.
is not a fight. i like the N82, specially for the photos( exactly the same photo camera from N95) but i need something a little better in all ways.
SORRY for all user of N82 to say that for all pepole who want to buy this fantastic phone PLEASE PLEASE DON'T BUY IT . Why i say this I will tell you because i have a very bad experience with my N82 the lower loudspeaker of my N82 it stop work in 1 month the top loudspeaker of my N82 it stop After 5 month i go to nokia care they told me that will cost 100$ US THAT IS TOO Much so i bought 5800 because my N82 was useless in this case without now voice from the loudspeaker & i'm tired from the vibration mode i use it for 12 month withoud any voice from the loudspeaker DO you belief that 12 month, then last month my friend offer me to repaire it with 25 $ US so i repaire it & my N82 loudspeaker work agian : ) . I have 3 friend have the same problem with there N82 to. So any one want to got this phone watch for the loudspeaker problem ( or you better go for N95 8G or N79 or 5800 the N95 8G is the same N82 feature cpu & gpu & etc) . Sorry for all fans & oweners of N82 but it is my personal experience with this phone but with all that i still love my N82 . (PLEASE GSMARENA DON'T DELETE THIS ).

I idmet that N95 8G IS good phone but N82 IS GOOD also it is the bar shape from N95 8G . N95 8G dosen't have mechanical cam protector & the slide shape make it not strong like any phone with bar shape & for gps the ovi maps make nokia maps have no use N82 & N95 8G DOSEN'T have OVI MAPS . N95 8G IS More expensive than N82 .
awsome phone.......having with me for last 2 years,still don't have any reason to replace it...the camera clarity is better than a 5MP digicam..
LAMBO, 30 Sep 2010It the same phone in cpu & gpu & etc . N95 8GHave much louder sound and bigger screen ... moreI had N82 and now i have N95 8GB and i tell you for sore the xenon flash is near LED flash for this two models.Not a big difference. i saw a S-E with a real xenon ;).Take photos in dark rooms with people dancing....aha...forget about mobiles with xenon, take a digital photo camera! And for what i need a card?? 8GB i think is enough for this phone performance(and i watch tv series on it).more memory is for HDTV-out phones.
@ ggpv...superior?? hmm speak for your self: with what? give just a reason! (don't tell me "the xenon" :)) ).. n95 8GB... bigger SCREEN, SLIDE( the slide concept is made to reduce the dimension of the phone), better VIDEO REC. dedicated "augument" games, dedicated MUSIC KEYS & LOUDER, i have only one REMOTE CONTROL in my room: n95 8gb (irda- for dvd player, tv, audio sistem), better browser(i use wireless a lot), better shortcut key (better graphic menu too), more display shortcuts.
WHAT'S THE POINT OF A SMARTPHONE (specially for GPS) WITH A LITTLE DEAM SCREEN??
i saw GPS (internet inbound maps) on n80 :|....
is not so important who is the best, is important to satisfy your wishes . the n82 have too little screen (tv series, gps, games,), and no dedicated music keys (my ipod is broken now) thats why i had to sell it, but is a good phone.
User exp: Flagship models of blackberry, apple, nokia, samsung.
battery life: awesome! same battery for 3 years! Still last 3 days without charging. (if i dont use camera)
dropped: 100+ times
Cracked xenon lens (but still works perfectly)
stability: ULTRA STABLE (crashed less then 5 times in 3 years + it was my fault running multiple aps, surfing the net + txting and not clearing my txt box)
Camera quality: Have not found another phone cam that does better(except N8 or JDM phones with ultra hi megapixels). Even the higher end Samsungs still have trouble keeping up with this 3yr old n82. Iphone4 camera is inferior.
Sound recording is decent.
Video recording was ahead of its time, but by now most competition has almost caught up. But that's why we have the N8.

N95 8GHave much louder sound and bigger screen but no xenon flash which is very good at low light photos. No card slot too expensive in my country too big size you can't put any thing in your pocket with it . So N95 8G is good phone but not for me .
Big D, 29 Sep 2010thnks LAMBO, that was realy d type of professional advice i was lukin 4. But im stil confused.... moreHi how are you . I will compare the recording & tell the diffrence between the 2 record in 3 days .but N82 record .wav & .amr - 5800 record .wav & .mp3 & .amr . ~ 5800 have avery bad camera don't forget that.

I don't know what type of photos are taking those who underestimate the n82
I think it is superior to the n95. Yes the keyboard... But in summary
for the price/benefit comparison it is a fine phone. I use it since
March 2008 with minor problems. I'm looking now for a n8, but
not with fanatism, only to improve the performance of my phone

I had N82 for 2 years now i have n95 8gb(i hate touch phones) and i tested. Anyway, a mobile camera is not for low light conditions, dark rooms...etc,for that condition get a digital photo-camera. so in my opinion the xenon flash is just marketing.
I agree with you, the N8 is the best....but we don't speak here about touch-screens or expensive phones, i just tell that N95 8GB is the best choice for a non-touchscreen ph. with a fair price.
