I bought an HTC s710 after i got a refund for a VERY problematic Nokia N95 and i must admit...the HTC s710 is WAY better than the N95.
No slider problems, no battery problems, features are great, Windows mobile 6, QWERTY keyboard...the list goes on....
With the difference of the money I got a blue tooth, sweet leather pouch, 2Gig SD Micro and a hands free car kit.
The only small problem with this phone is that it takes 1 second for the screen to switch from portrait to landscape when opening the slider. I believe this could be solved with a software update in the future.
I give this phone a 8.5/10
I rather buy 2 phones instead of this one. It's too over rated and I'll have a better quality at things this phone offers if I buy them separately.
and you are saying the os is slow...ok its not fast like many ppl expected or so....but atleast it has an OS...not like samsungs and almost all sony ericssons....do u want a not so fast os but its there or u want a phone with no os and that can only accept and install .jar files.....so stop compalinging u can install .sis and .jar files so be gratefull...all samsungs and most SE dont even have an OS!!!!!!!so be fu king grateful for what you have
screen is terrific it is 2.6 inches and got 16mill colours.....tell me some other phone which is not a pda like htc or imate which is as good screen and size and colours as this....there is no sonyericsson with 16mill colours is there....hmmm.....NO
so the camera is good but not spectacular,gps is iffy,screen is good but not terrific,os is what it is!it's slow.. hmm i'd say this phone is overrated!
My Grandmother used a better Phone..........!!!! T. I. made their chips and mother board in the year 2001 for this N series. Dont know why they wait 6 years to flust the thrash in the market. come on Nok stick up to your brand and show more balls
Have had one for a fortnight and the comments regarding battery life are correct - but after a few full charges and discharges the life extends. One thing though - applications need to be shut down properly as running them in the background depletes the battery - a simple statement but also simply true.
Great phone but GPS is woefully slow and the system, takes a while to "get going". Would probably have benefitted from a greater amount of RAM access and eaier file transfer protocols.
But, bottom line, it's features make this a must have gadget for 2007. I wonder what the cometition will come up with as a response?
it was very hard choosing between N95 and N93i because they are sooo different and they both have something that i like. in order to make it easier, i bought both of them and it has cost me $1400 but to my surprise N95 doesn't act like it is an A-list phone bacause the GPS reciever is not working really well ( ASUS P353 is better ). n95 has some great features with it that no other phone models have though... in the case of my N93i, it has less good picture and video quality than N95 but it has the very sophisticated and unique swiveling panel design that i like to show-off to my friends and strangers as well(heheheheehehehee). why just can't nokia make something like a phone that has the camera of an N95 as well as its feature and with an architecture of an N93i? in this way, we will not end up buying two ExPeNsIvE phones in order to suffice our hunger of a phone with style, sophistication and functionality... nokia! start planning to make the N95i...
about the GPS, do we have to pay to a navigator company in order to get N95 GPS running? thanks..
It's good phone! I use this it's nice but with one disadvantage of very small soft keys.
Nokia know 80percent of their customers don't have a bloody clue.16million colours with a bog standard res.Best screen in the world?sure thing lol
yeah plus the build quality now that is something that should have been perfect.I don't agree with the guy who reckoned nokia would loose customers by delaying release,i'd say ppl get more annoyed by being beta testers.Shape up nokia and treat your loyal customers with more respect
listen this is a good phone but don't be taken in by nokia's marketing machine.If you have any knowledge of photography you would realise 5mp with a small lens is not ideal!Infact 3mp would have been better but 3mp wouldn't provide the wow factor.Gps is of a lower quality too as is screen resolution and it has an insufficient amount of random access memory
Thanks a bunch for your reply. Im gonna go ahead and purchase the phone and get rid of my P990i.
As for the people complaining about the battery, with any phone if u start using all the features, it will suck up the battery within a day.
Also as someone mentioned "WHY" Nokia released this in April instead of August because they didnt want to lose customers. Nokia lost me on n92 as i kept waiting forever and SE almost lost me on the p990 cuz it took them forever to release the phone.
when this phone came out i heard lot of news like the phone is slow , poor battery but all bluff reports but is faster then any N SERIES PHONE its simply rocks. i just recectly bought p990 and after looking at thi phone i just sold my p990 and bought this one.people i strictly recommend you this phone i think there wont be any phone which will come with 5mp and so many features , still phone coing with 2 and 3 mp so they still have some long way.MAN NOKIA U ROCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS THIS IS SIMPLY BRILLLAINT PHONE TOO GOODDD ABSOLUTELY ROXORS!!!
i have a question about the nokia n95. the specs are unclear to me as to whether all models of the phone will work in US and Asia. I have had phones not be able to work in Japan and Korea, and wonder if this phone has the CDMA frequency? does wCDMA cover that?
The problems that I encountered with this phone so far:
* sometimes, when you're in the gallery, when you want to delete some pictures, it won't let you. You need to reboot your phone to make this work again
* Gallery again, while viewing a picture, there are 5 icons on the right side, options to send picture via e-mail, print, etc, the icons are still showing even though you have chosen to hide it. You have to choose the option to hide b4 it works again.
*** Overall, N95 is a great phone really! :)
the n80 has a bad battery , i scroug for extra batteries it was ok i keapt 2 in my wallet .
Why u r so angry ofcource there r in every phone good things and bad things i know the Battery is bad but its better than the one in N93i and by the way i think the battery is great in this one because wifi,HSDPA,GPS what do u expect more in this stronge Device Be easy and Enjoy the wow 5MP cam ......
