this phone isnt good cuz it doesnt even have bluetooth
and worst camera ever
nokia needs to upgrade
that is something i have noticed in the N95
its like a Pure Digital Camera the Lense cover's of N95
Great Phone the Original N95
if anybody has knowledge on how to get rid of the internal lens cover pls post heheh
in my unit with version 20 the camera startup time takes about 3-4 seconds
in about 1-2 seconds prior to opening the lens cover I notice that the actual camera itself is already active with the camera menus and stuff already present
but the thing is, the internal lens cover has about 2 seconds lag in opening I was wondering...the camera could have been used faster if not for that internal lens cover
and it seems the internal lens cover is more prone to wear and tear as I have seen a number of reports in other forums complaining that upon turning on the camera, sometimes they only see the menu but everything is pitch black in the viewfinder
most of them thinks that their camera is screwed but in actuality it is their internal lens cover that doesnt seem to close and open properly...
there are two camera lens cover in n95
one is the exterior part and another is inside the lens once you open up the main lens cover there is a slight delay in the opening of the internal lens cover
seems like some people think that there n95 and n82 units have a defective camera when in reality the only defect is the mechanism of the internal lens cover...I wonder can we manually take out the internal lens cover?
youll see this lens cover once you open up the main lens cover observe that 2 seconds or so
the lens exposed is kinda pitch black, then suddenly...an "eye" pops out hehehe^_^
N95 is a very good phone.I'm going to buy one in May.Can U tell me what's free in the GPS??
i got one for myself.
The phone's browser is the best i have experienced in mobiles.
Call quality is exceptional.
Does not hang,
Memory management is good too.
But the camera some times seems to hang,but i have solved it by keeping the lens cover open ,
Battery life is poor but i carry am add on battery while on the move. . . .previously i owned the e51. I never got low battery massage in that phone. . .
I totaly forgot to post here about Ngage.
Its out like Nick said. Go to: http://www.n-gage.com
Make sure you got v20 or v21 Firmware because this takes a lot of RAM.
Hows Ngage on the N95? Which one do you have Sand, Plum, Graphite. . . ?
@Tony, i know that trick but i'm not sure where it has any impact on the battery. My service provider doesnt provide 3G, so i've no idea on it. But my N95-1 working on upgraded V20 firmware on gsm profile gives me 2 days of battery juice, could be mainly due to firmware which i belive. Pls correct me if i'm wrong.
P.S Another trick is to set 'Packet Data Connection' to When needed. Again i cant find any difference. Yet i follow the so called tricks above..
Thanks Daniel for the tip on what version of software the phone has.
I've been told that if you change the settings to GSM it increases the battery life at the cost of video calling, has anybody done this and does it work?
@ Stelios, i agree abt the lens cover but not sure about the flash feature as i rarely take pictures. I use n95-1 only for the following which i think its best at, internet surfing,app installing, blue tooth headset, and lastly music. To me, n95-1 may not be the 'best' in camera quality compared to other brands but video quality is surely the best in the market.. Overall, its still the best buy for a all in one device! Bye..
Yes maps and navigation are free to look at and download, all over the world. The only thing that costs money is voice navigation.
all upgrade to v.20 or v.21 and download it!!!!!!
im just wondering since you guys know all about the specs of the phone and u have good ideas what the new ones are missing then why nokia didnt make the N96 8GB with Xenon light and cover lense? isnt it kind of stupid?
Excuse my english. and please make a comment
@ W0QM, i agree that n95-1 supports push mail service. But what i don't agree is that its not available to a majority of mobile service providers around e world. I use a unlimited data plan plus emoze app to push mail from yahoo cuz i have no idea of pop settings n all service providers are not e same standards when tech is concerned. No offence, bye..
hi ppl, i'm using msn live for messenger on my n95. Is there any app available for support of msn n yahoo simultaneously? I have used ebuddy from getjar.com but it crashes my n95 alot when my gprs signal is weak. Thanks in advance ppl..
Well done, I´m using Fring Skype local and international calls, when in free wireless areas. Amazing, for a pure gold Cellphone .
press *#0000# then it will say what version you have and when the version was made
no you cant the n95-8GB battery is bigger then the n95
the maps are free to download and look at but when you lock in a places to go to it connects the internet to lock it in then disconnect the internet and you have to pay to get the voice guidess
hope this helps
