Andy Burgin, 22 Dec 2008Nokias done alot wrong getting the N85 made in China an not Finland an you can tell the Qualit... moreThere's no difference if it's China or Finland. They have the same hardware so if N85 was made in finland it'd still sound awful in speakers because of its poor speaker hardware. You know what? N79 is a lot better than N85 - build quality, form factor, performance, and most importantly, price. - N79 is even more worth it than N95 8Gb and N96! Tell me what can N95 8GB, N85 & N96 do that N79 cannot do? Nothing! Be wise. More expensive doesn't always mean better. Sometimes the less expensive phones are even much better than the expensive ones.
hey ive been usin nseries for quite a while now and ive had the following
n73,n93,n95,n95 8gb,n82,n81 8gb,n80 and n85

Nokias done alot wrong getting the N85 made in China an not Finland an you can tell the Quality of the N85 does not match the N95 8gb at all,speakers rubbish an camera below par,you are suppose to show improvements releasing your next mobile but Nokias not shown no improvements at all on the N85
the sound from the loud speakers is just a crap ....my n95 has 100 times better sound through the speakers and the navigation key down is just impossible to use without pressing the center button ..afterall a bad experience
iam n85 user but i havent find any new thing except its bright display even poor n78 is providing fm transmitter.i am gonna sell this phone soon
bought n85 updated to version 11.
few problems, takes more than 3 hours to charge
hangs during music playing often & in the themes effects on also sometimes hangs
battery drains out even in no usage in under 2 days
sound is very low
the music equalizer when all at full doesnt make any difference in loudness
definately needs a new firmware n the phone will be perfect then, because the phone is very good
the firmware needs updated
solving hanging problem, louder sound, better battery & also improving the naviwheel & autorotate
and also the themes are pathetic & ringtones
new firmware update 11.047 is available.
press *#0000# to go to device manager and select "check for update" in options. choose your preferred connection and wallah
Buy N95 8GB INSTEAD of N85. After booting there's nearly 90Mb of RAM. And there's on lags when loading pixs. I'm not telling that N85 is a poor phone. It's ok 4 me but have to wait till those bugs r fixed.
I have a N85 and why the hell do animated gif lag on the phone? And I have about 300 photos in the photo viewer and it takes really long time for the N85 to load the pictures, why is that? It feels sooo slow when dealing with many photos.
does this phone have more sound than n73???pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee reply.....
well is this mobile gud for use??i am going to buy this phone...but can i use this for a long time??if any 1 is using this phone please help me and let me knw about the mobile please.............
I posted a comment lately and i said the phone is really awsome and really the OLED screen is unbelievable it's amazing and every1 have 2 c it !! however the navi wheel is sucks and i think it's not a big problem but the graphics of the new interface is great u'll love it and this phone really beats the monster (N95 8GB) !
I really recommend the N85 it's well made and it's the best phone on market !
Solmaz, 17 Dec 2008but i've heared N96 battery longevity is too short in comparison to other cell phones!!Look the N96 battery life is really sucks the N 85 is better somehow but if u kept opening the GPS navigation and the fm transmitter for the whole day the battery runs out after 15 hours and in my openiion that's not bad :D
Pjj, 20 Dec 2008hey i'm confused between nokia n79 & nokia n85. I do need a better navi wheel performance & ex... morethe only real good nokia cameras are the cameras which have mechanical shutter which are n73 , 6500 slide , n95 & n95 8gb , n82 which is the best
i have nokia n85 but i hate it ... useless camera and very ugly speakers sound
