*Don't listen to all of the haters of this phone*
They only talk crap because they're too poor to get one.
I'm bot all pro-N95 or anti-K750i or anything, I like them both a lot, but they are made for two compeletly different classes, and I'm not saying one's higher than the other, because they're not, but:
The N95 is made for buisness use and the K750i was made for camera usage.
I'm 14, and I bought my N95 on June 20th, and it is better than everyone thinks.
1. Great camera-takes good video and great pictures
2. Lots of applications and such on the phone-you'll never get bored
3. Its not very big (dimensions wise) at all-about the size of a BlacBerry Pearl, except a little thicker, but A LOT heavier
4. Awesome FM radio
5. Really loud speakers
6. Can get up to a 2gb microSD-good enough for me
7. Cool everything!
1. Really, REALLY poor battery life-I have to charge it daily
2. FM radio is kind of QUIET
3. Mine is from is from a guy who lived in and bought it from Singapore, so Nokina USA can't help me with ANYTHING!!!
4. The sliding part creaks when I push on the buttons (not on the number pad)
5. The little mp3 remote, even when it's locked (on hold), will activate the voice thingy during class and after a few seconds will say "No matches found"
I've had this phone for a week or so, and on the whole it is very good, but if I do not mention a function in this review assume it is perfectly executed because i could list the phones positive points all day. However, for such an advanced handset with many new, exciting and well executed features, I wish it had some of the handy features available on basic handsets instead of pointless software like barcode readers that don't work.
I assume you have read multiple reviews about the negative points of this phone e.g. battery life, which is poor but when you consider what this phone can do it isn't that bad. Next, I will go through some of the negative points that most people do not mention:
This phone does not have a stopwatch or timer, WHY? The flash cannot be used as a torch or for lighting video, WHY? Even basic sony phones can perform this useful function. The burst mode on the camera is very poor as it leaves a few seconds between each photo, which is no good for capturing the perfect shot. The delay between each shot is huge and the camera cannot be rested on its side to take timer photos as it topples over. Recent contacts are not listed separately for sending messages to so you have to search for your contacts each time. "GPS data" function only works in km not km or miles like in "maps". The music player cannot be closed using the "c" key in the open software list so you have to enter the menu within the program to close it. The sat nav cannot be set to go via another destination. When you are using the satnav and the phone rings, you cannot set the phone to automatically be on loudspeaker. Therfore, after you answer the call you have to hold down the menu key, select standby, the press loudspeaker. By this time you have probably crashed or missed the call.
At least most of these shortcomings can be fixed in the future by downloading free software, but until then I will have to settle for an almost ultimate handset.
this is awonderful phone some stupid se fans r telling all negatives about this phone tough they donot really own this phone this mobile is next generation mobile the cam is wowful the desgin is also great very very best phone in n series iam telling really i had no problems with this super phone iam surprising how other stupid people r telling bad about this phone really they r big stupids i only agree with the battery life but it depends upon ur usage for me battery comes for one and half day n95 has so many features so how can we expect battery life to be longer really shame on the people who are posting all stupid opinions about this phone this phone is really great phone don t belive other people words se k850i will surely floppppppp nokia n series is great no other phones can compare with n series phones
it is a really best nokia i have ever seen,the only problem is some times it`s turn off automatically ,but it`s happen when i change 1gig ram to 2 gigs.the GPS is great but for navigation you have to pay it`s bad things.but i pay 100$ for 2 years navigation.it`s works well now
i got it and the phone is so good its the best thing i ever had and the battery life is so good
the only different bettween it and k850i is wi-fi
and k850i is very nice with good software
Just picked this baby up this week. Hands down this is the best phone out. Iphone is way overhyped not the N95. Battery life isnt as bad as advertised first full charge lasted 24 hours with me messing with gps and wifi alot.
Terrible,ugly,get a S.E?Erm comments like that are bizarre!I for one haven't come across a phone as feature rich that looks as good and remember it is a compact device.Their is a few minus points-symbian os (unfortunately that's here to stay with s60) RAM,resolution is below what i'd hoped for and the camera is average in anything but ideal conditions.Overall 7.5/10
I'm sorry but that is an ugly phone. It looks like its from the mid 90s.
Symbian Guru Ricky got his hands on the latest internal Nokia N95 firmware, biggest feature upgrade: assisted global positioning. What makes AGPS different from standard GPS?
Standard GPS works without the need to be connected to a network of any kind. The stuff you see in cars, boats, the Nokia N95 before today's firmware, they all had to sync with at least 3 satellites in line of sight to get a fix and then process data. This takes time, a lot of time. When I was trialing the N95 a couple of months ago I got the GPS to get a fix only once. Sure GPS chips are getting better and faster, but how else can this lock on speed be enhanced? This is where AGPS comes in.
The A in AGPS stands for assisted. Your mobile takes a snapshot of what current satellites are visible and talks to a server that knows where the closest cell phone towers are. The server calculates your exact location and spits it back out to your device. Wicked wicked fast. I had the pleasure of working at Helio, all of their devices have AGPS. Lock on time was less than 5 seconds and I hope Nokia can get there one of these days.
How can Helio do it so quickly, yet Nokia can't? Helio knows the exact coordinates of all their (Sprint's) cellphone towers. Nokia doesn't have that luxury, but this is where users like Ricky and other N95 owners come in. Now this is just a theory, but I think that once the GPS finds your location it scans for nearby cellphone towers. This information is then sent to Nokia's central database where they are slowly, but surely, creating a map of cell towers all around the world.
Okay, let me start by saying this
N95 is a all-in-one phone but it doesn't do any of them that great even the camera is sub par. A decent 1 MP dedicated camera capture more crisp and realistic photos than this 5MP camera/phone/gps/music/video/wifi THING.
If you do plan to getting this watch out for online scams such as ppl on ebay and other online retailers as there is a china version with has electronic components that break down within a month
Overall great idea and 7/10 for me but the price and overall cheap feel of the phone is a huge draw back, i hop to see a second version of this phone.
thanks sabri ozarslan most of my themes have now been exepted,,its help and tips like this that make the forum not tittle tattle over who has best fones,,for crying out loud i dont know the age of people on here but it seems like 12 year olds ??Why are you concerned about someone buying a nokia why have you got to put down nokia itself, after all its not any of your buiness wat fone i purchase so why get so wound up about ,,why do you even care ??Get onto your forum of choice and enjoy that forum not get ranting and raving just because persons have bought a top notch device,,you complainers are either very immature or jealous
wise people choose SE..people who are just blinded by features and beauty,thy choose NOKIA..so,why settle for something tht tells them thy're the greatest but reality check..they seem to be "TRYING HARD" guys..cmon be real..be an SE user..
Ah man,i've been waiting for nearly 2 years to get my hands over this fone and now when it's out,the software is not good and the N95 is getting all sorts of problem,so come on man,need to sort this problem out so that i can get this fone finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stylish? Yes. Good Features? Well, it depends on the user really. I explored the pictures and videos with my friend's brand new N95. They really are great. I took a video of my friend and transferred it to my PC but why is it that the Video was like a moving Painting? Even if we maximized the screen still the quality sucks... It is so different watching it on N95 itself... Why is that so? Is the resolution too high?? Can anybody explain me please?
great mobile well done nokia some stupid people dont no the importance of this great phone really the cam is very good sound is also great
