i tried the wifi and went on youtube but it shows that i cannot view since i dont have the latest software. went to adobe but could not download the flash. is there a URL i can go to to see?
just got it yesterday and its a tremendous phone upgrade from my sturdy but ugly 6233.
just hope my phone wont crash! the picture taking is awesome...
coma and savor please help if you guys can!
To nokia recycler, roger and all those who keep on saying that N82 crashes, hangs, restarts and etc. I think this are the nokia phones that you are using and not the superior N82.
Why don't you just come out of your cave and buy a new one. BTW, link picture taken by my silver snapper N82.
The real problem here is some people are looking for the ultimate perfect phone. There is no such thing coz even Steve Jobs' very famous Macs have their own share of glitches. Let us be realistic and factual here and biases towards other brands aren't too welcome here. Again, this is supposed to be a review thread not a Nokia bashing forum. ;)
I think that there is no doubt about nokia devices, but watch for the other version of n82
with chines english/chines keypad because that model have problem with the microphone be careful otherway the nokia n82 it's cool model
if u need any answers write me on email@example.com ciao
To answer your two questions:
You can use MicroSDHC cards, so capacity can go up to 16GB.
You cannot use the Xenon flash as a "light" or torch due to the way xenon lights work. They cannot continually burn for an extended period of time without a constant power source. Short answer, there is no "flashlight" ability.
Why does no one ever reply to my post, yet i always read u guys one. its not fair!!! i'm trying 2 get some info from here and u guys are not seeming 2 provide it here. i want to find out the highest capacity memory card it can take and if the xenon flash can be used as a torch lite in the dark apart from wen using the cam? if u are reading this, pls rply.
Here a pretty funny applecation:
Nice post, ccl. I agree. As much as i luv my N82 and think it is one of the greatest phones ever made, i will remain critical n honest with any problems. Like PCs or anything electronic, all phones do crash. Nothing is built do be perfectly working everyday. An SE phone was going to be my next choice until Nokia added a stronger Xenon n surpassed the SE Kseries in the camera battle. The fact Nokia can go toe to toe with Canon, Casio, Kodak, Olympus, Sony, etc amongst sub-$250 point n shoot cams with a N82 tells me Nokia means business.
j've got N73 for 9 months now and think that NOKIA have made the best phone till now PERIOD
Saving for N82 bye!
No yellowish tones in my pix. Neither purple which was found in N95-1 with no firmware updates. My 7MP Sony DSC-W55 is better in macro mode in darker settings N82 is good outdoors in macro tho. Under default, N82 records brighter videos than W55. Just started using voice recorder. Can record more than 1min. Good for college lectures. At best, this a 5/5 star phone. At worst, no less than 4.5 (90%) stars. Still an A-class phone if there is no such thing as perfection.
You just restablish the fact that how good N82 is as a point and shoot cam.
@ Coma... Cool photos to bring your point across. We all have to remember that this phone is not an SLR, but for a point and shoot its well capable of doing the job.
@ J, All I did for the Snapple photo was change the setting from Auto to Closeup on the popup menu. For the bookshelf I just used auto, point and shoot.
Maybe you are not holding the camera still? I don't know, but all of my pictures are coming out GREAT! Now if I could just remember to close the lens cover when I'm done.. I always forget lol..
Wah...eh...your's quite clear..hmm...you just put close up mode?? did u tinker with any other functions?? teach me!!
OMG! Do I spy with my little eye a yellow book on that shelf!?!? I think I do! Bad phone..
@ J, Look at my Snapple photo, how can you say this phone takes bad closeup shots??
I just too a picture...
Yellow? Where yellow? Well, technically the lemons ARE yellow. Terrible phone, showing yellow lemons.. hah!
I don't agree with people saying phone take yellowish photo either u people don't own this phone or you are using "Chiness toy copy of Nokia N82" just stop posting crap and also Nokia uses same CARL ZEISS lenses used by SONY CYBERSHOT digital camera.
i do agree that pictures taken by nokia phones specifically with carl zeiss lens produces yellowish hue
that's what I did when I took close up.but it still isn't very clear.My old phone N93i was still sharper when it came to close up shots.but N82 still beats N93i at background view.
Oh yeah..the flash lives up to it's hype.dark room pix with the flash on looks like some1 turned on the fluorescent lights.
hi peps i just bought my n82 about 4 hrs ago and started enjoying its magnificent features when suddent i noticed sumtin, i was taking pix on a really dark room and wen i switch to my cam i noticed i got 2 freakin dead pixel! is it normal to have this even tho its just out of the factory? well its almost too little to notice but i was wearin eyeglasses and by looking close too cloes i cant bear in ming that i got dead pixel, i guess ill return it for a new replacement..
