FYI, the keypads are really easy to work with. Like what someone has stated, the gap between each keys make the difference. Plus the keys are pretty highly elevated from the body of the phone, which makes it ten thousand times easier. Problem is that if you used a bigger Nokia phone before exchanging to the N82, you would have to get used to the small layout of the keys for a couple of days.
Btw, I found out something from the N95 8GB forum. If you type *#92702689#, a life timer notification will pop-up. What's that for?
hey guy i need help. im planning to buy n82 this weekend but i read reviews that some n82 phone released dont have wifi, how will i know if the phone i'll buy have a wifi? thanks!
I have to agree with you, my N82 has the same problems. As good as the phone is in functionality, build quality should definitely be worked on.
It's nothing wrong with the phone though, it's just that the casing is pretty cheap (and probably really cost efficient for Nokia -_-;;).
Both the N82 colours come in a plastic casing.
It's less noticable in the titanium version, as the front plate is somewhat reflective and the back has a glossy patterned design. However, one look at the black model can tell it's fully plastic.
Actually, even if you have big hands, the size of the keys do not matter. It's the space in between the keys that gives a scenario for you to accidentally button smash. If you look at the N82 keypad, the buttons itself are long and slim, but there's a nice even gap between each one of the keys. So it's actually really easy to type messages on the keypad.
I wish people would stop being fooled by the size of the keys, it's the gap between the keys that matter.
ok it was listed in the specs sowwyyy :)
also is the black version plastic?
how is the functionality of the keys?
I have big hands, are the small buttons hard to use e.g typing sms
Finally I am able to buy this phone, but for the past few days, something has bothered my mind. The lower part of the phone, the part next to the microphone, has started to make creaking sound. It is not so serious, but it's still disturbing especially when I hold the phone and type an sms, i can hear little creaking sound. The body seems to be made of cheap plastic, anyway, I just want to ask you guys, fellow owners of N82, do you have the same problem with your n82?
is this phone (Black Version) compatible with the 8GB microSDHC Memory cards??????????????
Just been asking about of the release of the Black N82 an Orange said they recieved the dummy to display it an should be out in about 2 weeks time so will be available soon,i might get it or wait for the N96 but getting frustrated waiting while August for the N96,so if i like the look of the Black N82 i might get that sooner or not
I was using a N82 a week ago... but then I stumbled into the world of Japanese phones, mainly the Sony engineered SO905iCS. ^__^
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing bad about the N82, it's great. I just needed to fulfill my desires of owning a Japanese styled phone. =D
I like the pictures on both, N82 for Xenon low light/night shots, and the SO905iCS for almost everything else, like super macro shots as close as 3cm to the object. ^__^
Still though, the S60 OS and the WiFi are practically unbeatable on the N82. =]
I have just got the N82 - GREAT PHONE...BUT, what is the Barcode Scanner all about? whats the point of it?
@iCS thanks. Which phone do you have?
Need more answers for my question below.
It's personal choice after all. Personally I prefer titanium, because I feel that black is too plain and cliché. The styling on the back of the titanium (in my opinion) is pretty cool. ^__^
anyone seen the n82 black phone? which one is better black or the titanium?
seen a survey at then82blog.com, black is better according to the survey.
so...in a few words, after what i have read most opinons this is a good , maybe very good phone. and i see that is possible to upgrade firmware. could anyone of you that had this phone tell me one realy bad things have (if it's have one :) ) . I want to buy this phone. Grettings , and sorry if my english isn't to good .bye
Touchscreen is important dude for a good phone so that you wont press the buttons too much specially this one the buttons are too small to press and it the buttons looks hared too press so I suggest that they should atleast created a touchscreen for this phone so that anytime my hands are tired of pressing those small buttons, I should atleast use the touchscreen w/out pressing that small buttons...understand that is why it is important for a great phone to have touchscreen ok "Mr. RxdT"..
