Bros Sam we gats send you to stone age because
you don't belong to this century... which kin useless talk be dat na if na rank for vintage phones we go understand..... nor be you to dey compare am to Android
It is JUNE 2016 and I had been using my 8mb (black) NOKIA N95 since 2007 both as GSM cellular and as a VoIP extension for my ASTERISK server. It just works great!.
I had used other new smart phones, both Android and Iphone. After a few months I had always returned to my old N95. It is simply much more rugged and reliable.
I use my N95 very often as a "VCR" for business presentations, using its NTSC video output port. I also use it as a small web-server in a sub-domain of my main in-home Apache-based linux web server. This allows me, to, for example, broadcast "live full screen video" from my camera directly to my personal web-page via Internet.
By combining some of the nice features as voice recognition and a web-page I prepared for my web-server I am able to control lights around the house, transfer calls to/from my N95 to other asterisk extensions and control my Kodi-based home theater system all from the microphone of my phone.
The camera is great!. I had obtained really beautiful pictures with it. Audio output is amazing either in its little speakers or when you connect to a power amp.
After almost 10 yrs. of continuous usage, some things are beginning to fail, though: The front camera fails to start now, and the GPS has lost sensitivity.
In general, this phone is a gem specially if you mate it with a Linux server at home for printing or displaying to a screen directly from the phone. This same server provides functionality for e-mail, voip, web-services and samba shares. Of course you have to spend time configuring software both for the N95 and for your linux server, but I think it is worth the extra effort.
And no. I have no plans for replacing this "camera with a phone attached to it" until it "biodegrades" by itself. Thank you NOKIA for this beautiful piece of engineering. It is a shame you removed all support for it.
Best phone I got. Used it for four years, until the flex got broke.😢😢😢&#128546;
NOKIA N95 is far better than still or coming any smart and android phones, only problem battery cover (back case)
Nokia should bring Symbian OS back. we miss Symbian OS very much
Less than 10 years looking at this compared to my Galaxy S7 its amazing how far tech has moved.
But amazingly the speakers on N95 are still much better than just about any other phone.
