I am using N85 for a week and i`m with trouble with the bluetooth...it recives from my sony erikson but cant`t send to any phone or work with the auricular bluetooth i have in my car.
This week i will have to take it to the store that sold it to me.
i love this phone...internet, mail , mssaging while taking a call and photo / video quality. unfortunately i have had the handset replaced 3 times because the battery will not recharge despite two different plugs and batteries...i've been given the option of another mobile phone...lg , sony or samsung by my network provider but i'm not sure if i'll opt for that cos this phone despite the reoccurring issue suits me to a t...
I've been using Nokia phones for over 3 years, along with most other brands such as sony ericsson, LG, Samsung, HTC, iMate and blackberry.
I have to say Nokia is my first choice becuase they provide some STRONG and SMART phones along with camea. In terms of N85, i have to say its a really good looking phone, SUPER 5* Camera, Lots of applications and games.
I Really recommend the N85, i bought it on 25 March 2010 for £145.00 Brand New In box Sealed.
Jan-South Africa, 30 Mar 2010Just made up my mind. Nokia belongs in the trash. Been using Nokia for...well for to long now!... moreGuy don't try to compare nokia to does ROBISH phones i.e Blackberry,iphone,HTC except if you are buying it for big boy/girl sake becouse of their prices But for funcfionality those crape (iphone,bb,htc) are rated under Nokia3310, Samsung R220
K, i've been listening to both sides...both i need to make a decision and i think that i'm going 4 this phone anyway cause i had an n81 that froze sometimes with 3rd party apps & wobbled imm..ately out of package but i grew to like that ph but it got stolen..OH was i mad!
Sound quality---da best both loudspks & earpiece. So i'm going to grow to like this ph too... It's all abt realizing the positives of the ph.
Just made up my mind. Nokia belongs in the trash. Been using Nokia for...well for to long now! Waiting for my BBcurve8900, friend also has one and it's the best!!!! can't wait to love my own BB!!
JRF, 27 Mar 2010Yes, many people lie... fanboys mainly. But, how can you say "don't listen to the people ... moreJRF, unluckily for you, of course, but in some sense luckily for me, I now found out I'm not alone in my struggle with this piece of junk (made in Finland, by the way). There is no other decent name for this phone.
I had many phones and smartphones in the past, and, like you, sure now how to use a phone. None, including the T-mobile Wing, which has taken a lot of bashing, was nearly as awful as N85. After two weeks using it, all my music got deleted. Like, you know, just gone. Fine, I added it again.
The phone keeps freezing, so I have to remove the battery, it isn't event possible to use the restart button.
Yesterday, just all of a sudden, all my installed software and games got deleted. Can't explain how mad I am! There was absolutely NO REASON for that. They're just not there any more.
Now, the built. The cover cracks, the touch buttons feel incredibly stiff. Not to mention the screen and the back cover seem to be magnets for finger and ear prints.
Shame on Nokia for building a phone, which simply belongs to the trashcan. The only thing I can do with it is to use the phone function. For the price I paid, thank you.
IF YOU WANT TO BUY THIS PHONE, MY ONLY ADVICE IS DON'T. It doesn't worth it, actually it doesn't worth anything! This is the worst communication device I have ever had in my life.
Now, I have said it all. I feel better.
is der any quality difference of N85 made n China n Finland?SUMBUDY PLZ REPLY ASAP........
I have this phone for 13 months. I'm still loving it. The build quality isn't the best. Actually, its wobbly from the 1st time i bought it. But the wobble not getting worse, luckly, even i accidently dropped it off several times. Yes it hangs alot, BUT because the 3rd party app. Even nokia messaging isn't really compatible with this. If you used that app, beware! That will make your n85 to rich of problems. The screen is awesome. Symbian s60 browser is a rock! My friend, blackberry user, got shock when i played youtube over it via wifi. Now, i'd used Seven for my push mail service. It is better than n0kia mssging.

But, how can you say "don't listen to the people that say its bad because they lie" when people that say "its a perfect, problem free phone" are just as likely to be lying? I've had many phones in the past. Smartphones (SE P1i, Nokia N85/N95, Blackberry 8520/8350i) and feature phones (Nokia 5610, SE c902/K750i, Motorola A1200/V8/V3i) And more, too. I've never had problems with "knowing how to use a phone" because I just know how to use them. I didn't need to read the manual for my N85 nor my Blackberry. I just learn by using. My n95 belongs to my mom and never, ever had FW issues. Just once it froze but taking out the battery fixed that. My n85 didn't last 5 days from purchase before deleting my ringtones and music. Fine, I did a backup of my phone, reloaded the latest FW and everything. Perfect... 4 days later more songs got erased. Ok, got annoyed... repeated the process. 5 days after that it did it again. Got mad an went to my carrier and they said that it didn't have anything, that I wasn't putting the files in the correct folder. 5 days before my 30 day exchange policy gave up, it deleted pictures. From my camera gallery. That really got me angry since I didn't create that folder. Went back for an exchange and they kept it for 2 days. Nothing wrong, I wasn't using it properly. I told them to f*** off and they said if in 3 days (the final 3 days of warranty) it messed up I would get it "fixed". I was so angry that I sold it for 100 bucks, having cost me almost 500. So I bought me the BB8520 and it has been one of the most stable devices I'v ever owned. Any Nokia user knows that Nokia's devices are often rushed out to production and FW updates take a while to reach every carrier.Take the 5800, how long did it take to get a FW update for the camera and for kinetic scrolling? The n96 was probably even buggier than the n85. The n97 is just as buggy. Probably the best nokia to buy right now is the n900 or one of the newer Xseries devices.
I, for one, hate the n85 and wouldn't recommend it.I prefer nokia from 2007 and before.
I've had this nice phone for months and I've never had any trouble with it...many people lie when they say it is a rubbish, that software is bad, etc....what happens is these people don't use the phone adequately and install so much "rubbish stuff" downloaded from internet and this is the way that they spoil tha phone...I recommend it

So can u tell me which one will be the best for me N85 or N95 8gb? I want to buy a phone which will be very fast and have a good camera. So plese help me.
the battery life of this phone is excellent.....last for 3days,,......the only problem is charging,if you drain the battery,you need to remove the battery and put it back.....overall....this phone is really great...
dont beleive in these nerds guys, all they care about is their phone, no wonder they will die a virgin. this phone has excellent battery life and excellent keypad ... trust me i have had mine for 1 year and 2 months.
Dont buy this phone. Unreliable, doesn't hold a charge, software freezes, need to turn it on and off to solve problems.
Worst Nokia phone i have ever had.
Negatives: Poor build quality with keypad (returned my 1st one ELF with a keypad problem), software issues (even after the only update). Phone goes flat overnight occassionally after being fully charged a few hours prior.
Positives: Excellent camera quality, charges from USB no bluetooth compatibility issues with my nokia BT HF kit (CK1-W).
