Ktulu (N95 8GB), 01 Sep 2008Tell me 1 good reason, why this should beat the N95 8GB.
'Cause, so far, the only things it's... morehmm, one good reason?
Price, it will be cheaper than N95 8GB for sure in no time, Nokia will target the mass market in the matter.
Size, thinner, sleaker than N95 8GB, a bit smaller in screen but wil be complemented by OLED, can save 30% of baterry life
Software, fp2 v3, big improvements had been done, it is said 2 b faster than fp1, less power cnsumption, and more tweaks.
New stuffs trumped like fm transmiter, dual LED flash, better picture quality day and night, video recording and watching, better surfing, music, movie and gaming xperience as a result of better processor being used.
Memory card slot, bigger RAM among others.
What about Office Application running on this model or not? can i edit in office packages? can i check pdf files in this model?
already n95 8gb users have no reason to buy n85 unless you have a lot of money and you can buy anything. but for anyone else who never had an n95 8gb, n85 is a great choice. n85 is the better version of n95 8gb...
it best fone in tha world good battery life gd screen 2.6 love it great fone im gttin 1 wen it cum out soon

'Cause, so far, the only things it's got (OLED, bit thinner, and the S60 rel. 3.2) don't make me wanna trade it with my N95 8GB!
Come on! It's even got a smaller screen! The fact that it doesn't have int. memory doesn't give it much credit, from my point of view. I'm a regular user (not a heavy one), and so far I didn't use out it's memory, so... Get real!
The S60 rel. 3.2... The 3.1 doesn't crash, not even 10% of the cases the N70 (Symbian 8.1) did! Frankly, it crashed 4-5 times in 4 months. That's fabulous.
So, for the time being, I don't think double the price of the N95 ('cause that's what's gonna be) is worth it!
And even when the time will come, why always buy a new phone? Why from one year to another buy a new one, and waste our money? A cell phone is made to last 4 years! We could do better with our money, we could intelligently invest it.
Mass manipulation is a corporation's tool. People are going to buy, some of them N85, others will stick to the N95 8GB. That's market strategy. Nokia applies it all over the Globe, HTC seems to have learned it, too.
Don't get me wrong! I'm a Symbian fan, and a big company in my country (Romania) contracted me (among others), to test smartphones, particulalry based on Symbian, and have them reviewed.
Technically speaking this phone is much more powerful than Nokia N96. I wonder why the hype about N96 when they had to release a some what better model (N85) in the next month.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2008hello every one !
We have to wait for the correct assessment of the sound quality and speed... moremobile-review.com in their hands on stated that n85 has 24-bit dsp chip for sound and it's audio quality as great, even better than n78 and n79, comparable with n96, but a little below n91's sound quality.
over at smape.com, they confirmed that n85 is equipped with the same processor of n81, n78.
hello every one !
We have to wait for the correct assessment of the sound quality and speed of this handset.
if this phone carries the same music chip,DAC33 of N81 and is as fast as 5700XM, there is no other mobile in the market to beat this all-rounder with affordable cost( atleast after 2,3 months of release).
Kane, 31 Aug 2008after all these comments about processors... which one is overall better?? choice is simple.if u like to use multiple programs & tasks at a time then certainly n96 processor is better. bt if u run only one or two programs at a time then there isnt much difference between the two.
Allaboutsymbian have already predicted this phone to be the overall champ in sales and buzz this quarter over N96, innv8, C905 and others.
Its because of the totality of this phone that made it the hottest device as of the moment. All-in-one device at a reasonable price.

n85 has lens cover, amoled screen, it's thinner, it has fm transmitter.and it's cheaper!
the phoneman thinks the n96 is way i mean way better then this phone the n96 has longer talk and stan by time and has a total memory of 24 gb
Nokia N85 - N81's successor
Nokia N79 - N78's successor
Nokia N95 8GB - N95 successor
Nokia N96 - N95 8GB sucessor
Nokia N82 - its the N-Series sucessor
after all these comments about
processors... which one is overall better??
I am going to try the Samsung i8510 for 14 days to see if it can match the ease of the Nokia mobiles,but with this Superb phone being released by Nokia, i will have to really get the N85 i think instead if the i8510 is not up to sctratch,the N85 would have easily beaten the others for mobile of the year as it looks so classy,well done Nokia do not release the N96 because it will be no match for the N85
The 5700 processor may be faster when it comes to the user interface/navigating through the menus, but when it comes to multitasking and multimedia functions the n96 is better equipped because it has the duo processors.
Dont get me wrong. The 5700 processor is quite capable of handling multimedia functions without a problem. Its just that its processor doesnt have a backup processor like the n96.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970do u know what dual core cpu means? it does not mean that the 2 cpu will act simultaneously giving double speed.it means that one cpu acts as a back up.when one cpu gets exhausted the other one works. this type of cpu is usefull for running multiple programs at a time which exhausts the cpu. bt people who does not run multiple heavy programs at a time, for them a 369mhz cpu will work faster than a 264mhz cpu.
