I have this phone since 2009, it still works perfectly, it can do almost every hype of today. I think Nokia pushed every existing technology into the N9 phone, way long before the iPhone. (Too bad they didn't think of 'touch'. )
The phone is an iPod with integrated speakers! when you slide to one side, it becomes a smartphone when you slide it the other way. With GPS, voice control, wifi, bluetooth, front and rear cam (with a real lense system Zeiss), IRda (!),... Name it, and the N95 has it. Even today, I make it a sport to compare its possibilities with the latest, and beware: usually the Nokia has the same (or similar) possibilities! Btw, whatsapp is available for it!
Best ever phone.. especially in 2008. It's like using iPhone 7 at that time..
HK, 04 Oct 2016I have a Nokia n95 8GB, the screen went black because of something technicians call "flatter".... moreIts the flex cable issue. Known issue for most of these slider type phones. Nokia n95 and Nokia N95 8gb are not even near the only phones where this can happen. Flex cable failure can also happen with Blackberry Torch(like 9810 for example) phones.
You can extend life of the flex cable by using the slider and the keyboard only when you truly need it. Dont use slider only for unlocking the keyboard lock or just for answering calls. Avoid usage of the slider when you dont need the keyboard or media player buttons.
George Kush, 23 Sep 2016thanks for the info I'm deffinately going to buy the n95 not the 8gb because no sd slot, also ... moreIf GPS/maps is very important for you. Then you probably should go for newer phone and forget Nokia N95 and Nokia N95 8GB, reason is because because the GPS antenna may fail. In the 8GB model this does happen. Not sure if its a result of corrosion/humidity.
The GPS of my Nokia 8GB feature has competely stopped functioning long time ago. Not a big issue for me because for navigating I have my own Garmin Zumo 350LM GPS navigator.
I have a Nokia n95 8GB, the screen went black because of something technicians call "flatter". I am not sure of the spelling. I repaired it once before, now I want to retrieve the contact list safely while not seeing the screen anymore!!
How can I do it.
Thanks & Appreciations to all

Im still using my Nokia N95 8GB as my daily phone. In my opinion the Symbian is the best phone OS. The reason why Symbian is a bit slow is because of the weak hardware, not because of software. Im keeping my N95 8gb as my daily phone and Im not going to buy new phone before this breaks down. I hate touchscreens too much. The N95 8gb definitely does have best support for multimedia handsfree(with multiple buttons, like the AD-54) system excluding voice commands. Best music player controls overall.
The N95 8gb also does have 2 "hidden" features. A video cutter, A photo editor.
Simply select a photo without opening it, then open the menu and choose edit. Then open up menu again and "choose a function" or something similar, im not sure what is the correct word in english, because I use finnish language settings in my n95 8gb.
Now Symbian opens a photo editor. These 2 apps never show up in your apps or tools list/folders.
To open up video editor.
Simply select a video without opening it, then open the menu and choose edit. Then you have 4 choices: merge(merge videos together), switch sound(switch sound of the video), add text into video, Cut(this opens the video cutter).
I still use this phone and onother n73 music edition and iphone 5 32 gb , the n95 8gb is one of the best Nokia phones
Hi guys. This phone was my dream once. Then i got Nexus 4 and still have one with sailfish OS. I am sure Nokia has a future and it can come back and be the first one, if they will not make android phones! Android is very slow and laggy. You need much power to run it fast, but sailfish os is not that case. It's fast even on slower hardware. It's open source and it can run android apps with alien dalvik, or on ported versions you can run android apps with sfdroid. So if Nokia will start making phones with this OS future is theirs!
Such a good device at the time. It was my first phone as a music player. Tough, good for predictive texting and compact. And it took nice pics too. The end of that era. I had mine as the iphone 3 was arriving and the future became touch screen.

Nokia always produced great and reliable phones and Andriod is lacking in that department. As was Symbian lagging and overcome. I loved it also, but it's end was inevitable.
If you are thinking newer phones have bad cameras, boy, you are so wrong. Even the cheapest Nokia Lumia 620 and 520 have much better camera than the N95. It did had amazing camera and was ahead of the time, but that was in 2007, now it's 2015 and technology advanced and N95 is stuck in past. If you even try 920, albeit 3-4 years old phone, it puts to shame even some P&S digital cameras, and you can use it as hammer and used ones are under 100euros. Not to say about 930, 930 and so on.
So, leave the past in nice memory and enjoy the new things. You won't regret.
i realy lyk the fone but my own has an operating system problem i wish some one could help me restore the factory operating system
this phone is my childhood phone and i use it today i buy it in 2011 because it vas still expensive i dont like the new phones they have bad camera,not so loud speakers my english is bas i im from Bosnia windows sucks and android lags too much symbian is the best OS ever made and Nokia you are my favourite brand back then and today i cant find no brand replacement for you please come back and make N-SERIES again with Firefox OS or Android but with 2 GB of ram on every phone.The N-SERIES are the best phones ever made.Please Nokia make it again.Many people like me be very happy.
