N82 will continue to gain a following through solid word of mouth from users who actually own this device. I prefer if a phone generates hype by actual performance, not just fancy marketing. No such thing as a perfect phone, but if the biggest knock is its looks, im content with that! N82 is not a perfect, neither is any other phone there, but N82 is pretty close to it if u consider how much feature packed it is n how well it performs.
Congratulations and celebratlons to Nokia on their magnificent new invention! The phone was only released and announced in November 2007 and yet it has generated 100 pages and 2083 hip swinging, finger snapping tongue wagging user opinions and still going strong!! I am intrigued and compelled to buy this mini-computer. Have Nokia finally produced the quintessential all-in-one device?? The proof of the pudding is in the eating!!
Looking forward to the firmware update soon. Most minor issues dont distract me much. The silverplate does blind me when watching vids under bright lights. Put it under a table for shade. I bought this phone for 3 reasons. 1)Stable n fast S60 OS. 2) Solid alternative for P&S cam. 3) Great reception... It aces in all of them. No freezes it yet. The rest of the N82's features is just a bonus to me. The looks dont bother me at all. Ive got a few curious glances already since it isnt common here (SoCal) like an iPhone or RAZR. I like phones that hardly anyone owns. N95 has taken some of the N82's limelight n sales which ok by me. Design is not my top priority. I dont buy phones to fish for compliments or look for a GF. Only another Nokia or SE will surpass this in photography.
i dnt know y but y dnt u ppl stop talkin about softare problems cuz they are gona get fixd! LIKE THE N95! there were ton of problems with n95 but they are fixd now! so keep quite! and egsm is same as comparing Gallardo (gsm) with Murcielago (EGSM) :p
A few minor annoyances that isn too distracting. Yes, the battery could be better. 1500 mah could at least make thru the day for me. Autorotation screen can be a nuisance when using emTube. Have it turned off at times. Wish the screen was bigger n brighter in direct sunlight. Make sure to have autolock app. If u shake it, the screen lights up which drain batt more.
why people say bad shit to this phone? i got this phone and its working good for me no freeze no hangs, and they always say symbian sux? i love this os it lets me put many programs unlike sony which i can only put java games and sum shitty program that dont make sence, and btw wats the use of animated screen saver if ur screens gonna turn off to sdave power, i mean its kinda useless also dont u think? surely nokia cant last as long as sony but imagine the features that u can use, for everything thats good theres always a price to pay, and i dont mind that as long as i get wat i need from my device..
Im seeing NOKLA is much better than NOKIA like the n99 or the touch screen p83 NOKLA connecting people NOKIA disconnecting people
I agree with Ting Tong, the most important N82 problems are its size and sound speaker, i also had a problem with the media player. Though i do have to mention that THE most important flaw N82 has, is the weak battery, i mean stand by times are pretty decent,(way better than the N95) but using the phone drains the battery way too fast. I had no really soft issues with the phone yet, it just restarted it self a couple of times, when i tried some wrong(older) sis applications. But i have to mention that the menus are really slow comparing it with some older Nokias with Symbian OS, i m confident that later soft upgrades might fix this issue and optimize the drivers. Cam is great, just a bit oversaturated under direct sunlight, bur great details! The video has left a lot to be desired though, esp at evening and night lighting conditions, IMO it has the worst video a 5mp mobil has, but phones were not supposed to be handy cams anyway...
To all nokia fans let me make it simple !
Nokia phones Nseries/Eseires can not use animated gif as Wallpapers! even if it does battery will flat out qucikly! on se phones u can use animated gif! how smart are nokia phones? dey cant even do simple task lol.
btw u want a phone wid good battery not a phone a wid so much features u cant even hardly use for long! especiallay wifi, gaming, music on nokia !
one mAIn fing NOKIA NEED TO UPdate their Battery! we are in 2008 n still no improvements by nokia at all. over the pass years sony ercisson improved thier batterys.
My White N82 arrived today and I gotta say, it's smaller then I imagined! Not as thick as you would think. I haven't done anything with it other then turn it on and take a picture, but the OS is quite snappy and fast!
i think is one of the best phone on the market except N95 witch is almost the perfect phone except the battery quality .. NOKIA is far away the best mobile brand in the world !

has anyone used this company before and what are they like
There is a rumour going around the web about a new firmware for N82. http://cellpassion.mobi/2008/0...ed-apps.aspx
It addresses stablity issues. For those who are bashing symbian... Symbian is a completely different company to Nokia. My school mate is working there in the London. Nokia and Symbian are strategic alliances regarding Symbian OS phone for Nokia.
@ shanebrain... to keep from you battery from dying early. Best thing is to turn off power hungy apps... like WiFi scanning, bluetooth, if you don't have 3G network turn that off too. This is will help. I'm guessing you are still in the honeymoon period with your phone. So I'm also guessing its pretty difficult to put the thing down at this moment.
I managed to get about 2.5 days 3 max on minimum resources.
freak thanx man!!!then i cant really find any flaws!!!:D this fone brilliant:D
as always batt life is a little weak!!!mines new and goes for 2 days including fone calls and playing a bit of games havnt tried it with music yet but im guessing 1 n half days??
@ msa... EDGE is Enhanced Data Rates for GSM. Basically this determines the data transfer rate of GSM type networks. This is actually a superset to GPRS which lower transfer rate. Its like comparing a supercar with it previous model.
Or in Wifi: 802.11g with 802.11n (WiMAX)

Very good phone but with some major flaws:
-It is HUGE. How people can love its size is beyond me. Even bigger than N95.
-The loudspeaker sound is far too SOFT. I miss many calls when the phone is my pocket
had this phone now one week and must say very impressed just one question when viewing web pages and i wish to download to real player..nothing just says connecting am i missing something.any advice thanks in advance
@ Shanebrain.... and to all N82'ers. The copy paste funtion is the # button... you have to hold it and then mark to the area to want to copy and then you will have a option to copy or paste....
Try it!!! it works just as well!!!
somebody plz help
this is just a general enquiry and not related to the n82, i came on here cos i know theres ppl on here who know there s**t
does not having EDGE on a mobile phone really cause a disadvantage? what dif does EDGE make? does it make the pnone faster or something?
