All you people who moan about such and excellent phone are a pain in the bum, I work in a panasonic shop and you remind me of the customers who spend £500 and then demand so much 15 year warranty a blood transfusion and world peace. All electronic devices have drawbacks and I can live with them because i know that not everything is perfect and never will be. you haters are like VAMPIRES. N95 not for everybody but it is for me. I have even warned people who dont use a phone to it's full potential and dont understand s60 to stay away from the nseries. but im pretty smart and mine works like a dream
8 bit screen 256 colours
12 bit screen 4096 colours
16 bit screen 65536 colours
18 bit 262,144 colours
24 bit 16.7 million colours
Some of these newer lcd teles emit 7 billion colours but remember all these colours amount to better shading and colour depth,,i prefer the 262k screens on mobiles as 16 million colours tend to dim the display and can increase power consumption and is not really visible to the human eye unless the screen is reaally big and shading between adjacent pixels has a chance to take effect,,for e.g. the 2.6 inch screen on n95 only gives a small distance in which to change colours gradually so its not as effective as a 64 inch lcd that can change colours over a better distance or shade gradually.The n6131 has avery dim screen and thats using 16million colours also the n80 i have has a dim screen and their are too many pixels per cm..Some people ask why screensavers work even tho their written at 65k colours well thats what you get only 65k colouring in fact a lot of stuff we were using at 65k still remains most of the time so thats the amount of colours we theoretically see..When nokia moved from 6630 model to 6680 model most people could not see any difference in the 262k 6680 model and thats because all the wallpapers and screensavers were written at 65k ??
I like the crispness and briteness of the 262k screen,,my choice and opinion,,hope this helps mjzx,,,,,
I love my phone, but in this review it very wrongly says the standby is upto 220h. and 24h is more like it, which is 1/10th of the real standby time. If not for it, I can't think of anything bad about my joy and pride of a nokia N95. It does freeze up at times and tend to be a pain , but come on it is yet another electronic device, and is great...Camera is brilliant! GPS is awesome, but I wish Nokia did give in navigation free too....for those who are not happy with it, you can always get the better option of going to install Tomtom 6 on it and use it...so Nokia should try to give in navigation free in their future phones if they are to stop competition from Tomtom 6 or rather face it firmly....The design flaw of the inbuilt GPS receiver being placed behind the keypad is fine, I mean its such a fully loaded phone, and a simple flaw like that is liveable....once you upgrade firmware, the performance is much better....nokia when is the next N series coming up?I will certainly go for it if you can free up the flaws mentioned here!!! cheers!
Absolutely brilliant this phone! It has everything you could ever want in a phone! I got mine 4 days ago and it was love at first sight! I would urge anyone looking at this phone to just go ahead and buy it!
mine is too slow, always hangs, a cellphone is to ease someone's lifestyle but this n95 gives you problems rather convenience...this is a stupid phone, just like you people who keeps buying despite knowing its poor performance..if i new it in the first place i will not buy 1.. now i traded mine.
dont be dumb just to have a so called "n95" you will sacrifice yourself carrying a load of problem having this phone....
dont be stupid man.
Can some techno-junky tell me how many bits the 16M colour screen is?? I know that 65536 colour screen uses 16bit technology but I am not certain about the recent 16M screens. Windows mobile cannot seem to cope because 16M colours would slow down speed because of the WM OS. The Symbian OS seems to be far more adaptable to the newer screens which are now at max capability in terms of colour palette.
allan,d color of flash of n95 is white and d n73 is also white but ders a mix dats lyk a yelowish.and bro,transfer it to pc,picture from n95 and n73.d n73 is look lyk some blur.d n95 is clear.

Lets admit the fact that most or all of us wants to have our moneys worth specially when buying phones. Like in my case, I trade-in my n80 for n95 not bec its the latest phone in the nseries but bec i know what i really want from this phone. Many of us here kept on fighting, comparing and always dragging the disadvantages of the phone. Its just like a clean white paper, if you're going to put a small dot of ink in the paper, the tendency is just throw it away and just get another paper.(we all hope we can just throw and buy another phone bec there is a small problem like the battery life or whatever small problem that we have)we dont even bother to look the whole white paper and that we can still use it.(or do something to elliminate or even minimize the cause of the problem). As I had said, we all want to have our money's worth. The best thing that i can advised is to shop around first and think 1000x before buying a certain phone. Decide on what you really want for your phone and what works for you best and don't just relay on what others would say about the phone's disadvantages. Although they said that firsthand experience is the best teacher. Yes! it's true but not all you hear and see is believable. Afterall, this companies will be developing a more advance phone that will surpasses our phones today but as always,CAN'T HAVE THE PERFECT PHONE...

I work in a retailer and this is my #1 seller. I have had only a small handful with issues, the majority of people bringing them back just do not understand how to use the handset. Out of all handsets this is actually a very reliable model. Excellent phone.
N95, while packed with features it is annoying because it's so slow. Once you start to fill the memory card and the contacts is slows down and stuffs up and freezes all the time. It's not worth the price tag for a phone that sucks this bad. Give me a K800i over this any day.
i hav my n95 for 2mos now, the prob when the phone is active the lites go out for about 2 seconds , after 3 to 4 seconds it goes out again.....pls help me.
There is an almighty battle brewing. It is over screens. Windows mobile are going for VGA screens with 262K colours eg Eten X800 and I-mate Ultimate 8150. Nokia are going for QVGA screens with 16M colours eg N93i and N95. The question is what will the imminent new Nokias offer ie the mysterious N81, N82, and N97. Will Nokia go for the big fish ie VGA AND 16M screen?? Imagine the vivid screen experience that would give on a 2.6 inch such as the N95.
my n95 has the slide problem like many others! should i send it back to the store and get a new one?
there shouldn't be an issue with the non-nokia card... only the realibility and life of the card itself will be affected, not the sound quality or watever... I think SanDisk actually makes better cards than Nokia tbh...
Personally im looking to get one of those 8gb SDhc's.
