this phone is all i really want, it has all the features needed to be an amazing phone, it has so much style. i love it! definitely buying this. don't care if features and looks are similar to other nseries i've never owned one and i'm pretty excited... no other nseries has ever made me buy it, not even n95.
just compare it with the n96 and u 'll notice that they r almost identical.....ther's no point making the same phone with downgraded specifications and call it a new model.. i am really disappointed with nokia (altough i'm a big fan of them) because i'm waiting for such a long time for them to release an 8 mpix phone and all they come up to, is some phones with new look and same old specifications....this is a good phone but it has nothing new to offer... i think that the current n96 should be called n85 and in the place of n96 it should be an 8mpix supersmartphone that will amaze us all and leave the competition litterary years away like the old times with nokia n95..
It seems like everyone is cribbing about N85 not having a xenon flash. Of course xenon is brighter than an led or dual led flash. Xenon consumes much more energy than LED so to save power Video recording is usually without the xenon flash. Yes you can't use xenon flash while recording. Even if you can use the xenon flash as lighting while recording video , its gonna drain you battery in no time. On the other hand, LED will be with you all through your video recording.
Here in Thailand prices of N82 and N95 is going down fast. Guess it is because of the coming N85. Planning to get one really soon, hope the first batch won't have too many problems

This device will in all likelyhood prove to be a best seller for Nokia and a superb all-rounder.

I've never had any problems with the memory card, but a few times, all my contacts would suddenly dissapear from the phones memory as well as other items. So that's not always true.
if you want an 8gb internal memory then buy the n95 8gb. flash drive is more stable than memory cards.
I was planning to buy a BEST QUALITY phone in Nokia N Series. I found Nokia N85 in nseries site. I have compared Nokia N85 with atleast 40 different phones from Nokia Nseries, Samsung, Sony, LG etc.,, I found that this is the BEST IN CLASS. It has all features that a phone should have. Most important feature is it has AWESOME Color AM OLED which none of today’s phone have. This is the NEWEST technology called Organic Light Emitting Diode, The colors displayed for more natural and BEST QUALITY you can get in any of today’s phones and this kind of display consumes less power. It has a AWESOME 5 Mega Pixel Camera. 8GB external memory enough to store whatever u want. REALLY AWESOME MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!!!! A-GPS, Geo-tagging, Global Roaming are also present. The Look of the Phone is Awesome comparable to N96. It gives value for Money. With my extensible analysis, I suggest to Buy this phone.
I wish it had atleast 4gb of internal memory bcoz the damn files in memory cards become corrupted after some time. Memory cards are not stable. They die after some time.
Internal memory + Support for external memory is the best option for customers.
NOKIA still does not hav any 8 MP phones????
If it is then NOKIA is tooooo backward
"Problems with OLED
OLED seems to be the perfect technology for all types of displays, but it also has some problems:
Lifetime - While red and green OLED films have longer lifetimes (46,000 to 230,000 hours), blue organics currently have much shorter lifetimes (up to around 14,000 hours[source: OLED-Info.com]).
Manufacturing - Manufacturing processes are expensive right now.
Water - Water can easily damage OLEDs."
