I've had my N95 for about 4 days now. Got a couple things to say...
Overall the phone met my expectations.
1) The camera is VERY good, although the high jpg compression tends to be a problem in which quality is key. That being said, the picture quality is well above average and well above the level of the n73 which tends to take over exposed, over saturated pictures. The flash is kinda weaksauce, but what can you expect from a phone?
2) The Symbian OS scores again. Interface is great, features are great (w00t i can set a different alarm time for every single day of the week, LOL)... until it freezes. Yah thats right, in 4 days my phone has frozen twice... and it's brand new. That being said, a quick battery removal (and then putting it back in, duh)solves this, but it's still kinda annoying and not good for any phone to have.
3) FM Radio has top quality receptions and goes pretty easy on the battery. The problem is, you can't play the radio on loudspeaker.
4) MP3 player is amazing too... although the interface is not perfect, the quality of the sound is up there with sony's W series and mp3 players like the creative zen and the ipod.
5) Form factor is nifty. The phone isn't light but it's not overly heavy. Considering it's features it's fine. Take a good look at your handset when you buy it though, some N95's have an annoying gap between teh two sliders... The first N95 I had had that problem but I went in and got it replaced on warrenty. My new phone has no such problem.
6) Battery life is NOT AS BAD as many people make it out to be. That being said, I have a 4 day old battery.
1 charge = 65min GSM calls + 2h speaker music + 1h headphone music + 15mins gps + 8 pics (3 with flash) + 30mins wi-fi web browsing + 30minutes games + 1 hour FM radio (headphone)+ 7h standby. Not amazing, but usable. If you go nuts on the phone and use all its features like I did the first day I got it, the phone will last a whole day nicely allowing you to charge it while you sleep and start all over again. If you were to use it like a regular feature phone (moderate talk time and a few text messages) it would last about 4-5 days. Yesterday I talked only about 15 minutes, sent 4 text messages and took a photo... rest of the time on standby. The 7 bar battery gauge still shows full and it's been 30hours since i charged it...
Overall a good phone. Just wonder how it'll stand up to the test of time.
Gorav you make some negative statements about the N95 yet customers like Brynn are more than satisfied. In fact more people in this forum praise than prowl the phone. Remember this is an international forum so I don't know where you attain your statistics from. I think you're exaggerating your return rate. As for Madpanas and Andy Burgin there has been no official confirmation of the N series you mention esp the mysterious N97.
butch.look at the back of the n73.a beautiful sliding cover for the camera and flash.why didn't nokia put the same cover for the n95,instead of just the little thing for the lens.
butch you are wrong i took the 2 pictures myself in my basement when the lights were low one from the n73 and one from my n95.same exact picture both times and i saw it with my own eyes buddy.n73 brighter.although n95 is a more feature packed phone.
hi. can someone tell me where can i download free game and aplication for my n95.
Probably the worst phone i have ever come across. Every 10 handsets we sell we get 8 back for repair. Yes its got the features but it would also help if we could use them without the phone crashing or the battery running out. When the N70 was released customers couldnt wait for the N80 because the N70 had too many problems. N80 had too many problems so everyone was waiting for the N73. And now the N95 is crap. When is everyone going to get the message that its not worth buying any of the Nokias N series. Nokias will always be the first phones to release alot of features on one handset but theres no point because most of the time you will end up sending it back for repair. Regardless people will still go out and buy the N95 because of the highlighted features.
to brynn.ok n95 have many advantages,but I"m talking aboutvideo clip.Aaron is absolutli right that n95 and n93i clip are worst from first n93 whit 3xoptical zoom.I"ll wait for n97 whit 20gb hard and hope that n97 will have 3xoptical zoom and good stereo microfones and audio chips and afcoure powerfool battery 1600mah like n92.
Nokias having a press conference on the 29th August in London showing there new handsets an innovations going to be released soon such as the N81 an N82 other handsets just hope they include the Nokia N95i in Fully Black an are going to relase the 5300 an 5200 in Black,an hope Nokia stop releasing Silver an White hansets an stick to all Black instead now
Navigon 6.3 runs now on N95
dis s my 1st day 4 using n95.only 1 problem.d batery.aftr 9hrs,d batery low bat.Y?i think d problem is d fon.i hope i can c d problem.
To madpanas,,if you look thru n95 comments and s/e k850 comments WOQQ person has about 100 comments ranging from rubbishing each fone to praising each fone,,just ignore his comments as he or she has put so much rubbish on the forums he must be mad as i put in an earlier post and should seek help.
Ive had n73 and its the slowest fone ive ever owned but the n95 has never really crashed on me but you cannot compare certain s/e fones for overall speed to N series smarfones as they do not have an operating system on them to contend with..Their is nothing wrong with n95 if it was bad they would not sell and every single carrier would not stock them or would remove them from sale,,the n95 has a battery which wil under moderate use get you thru 16 hrs of your day (the other 8 your supposed to be asleep)it could crash if you cancel an operation quickly after just opening it and try to open another but your home computer does this..I am using vodas n95 in uk and on version 11 software and as far as i would say their is nothing faulty about the fone its only rumours that start off and become massive under the media and nitpickers,,if youve used a symbian smarfone before and ive used them since 2003 then you will have a good understanding of them and perhaps their little quirks..The n95 is a superb device and its only rival to me is or was the nokia 6630..
hey sami, yes you have to believe its negative comments, i have 1 before, my cousin has 1 too, we both now have a different unit. my cousin and i share same problems, our n95 keeps hanging and very slow.. i sell it. now i have a different unit, an SE phone and im happy with my phone, my cousin traded his n95 and now has n73, he said he's contented with n73.
people who said negative about this HP doesnt lie, keep in mind with a phone having a huge features having almost everything in a small brick will positively have problems.
thats what ive learned choosing a phone, spiderman is right "with greater power comes greater responsibility", and this phone cant handle his its too much ability.
thats a fact.

i cant fwd/rewind through handfree keys????????????????.do give me some tips regarding GPS using through this phone as well
to woqq.you'R lier.i downloaded to much videos of n93 and n95 from russian sites,compare the quality of video and must say for everibody-n93 whit 3xoptical zoom is champion.yesterday itested by my self htc "advantage" to-pichtures are good but video is worst from n93.so for me n93 for moment is unbeatible champion for video.if the price go under 550$ I"l buy it.i have about 35 video clips from russian sites-for me russians always tested all models and tell true without any comersials note.
My battery keeps only 12 hours.
It never shows full battery when I do charging.
Is there a problem with the battery of my mobile or that is the maximum of it?
wraV u can use MSN but the MSN for Symbian OS only cuz n95 runs on Symbian OS u can download it frm many web site so u just have to google it..
Nokia N95 is the best phone to use.the user need more time to experience the phone and get the real benifit of the phone.I am sure it is the best phone out of all the latest brands.
Pls teach me how to use MSN messager in this E90.
MSN if running in Windows smartphone is standard feature... But in E90 doesn't have it..
