finally i bought this phone a couple of weeks ago. hell lotta money for mobile phone! this is more expensive than my asus eepc. my impression is kinda mix. no doubt it's very nice device...everything packed in this small phone. featurewise, i really liked it and getting used to it (moved from sony ericsson m600). i do sometimes miss touch screen of my old se phone. it does what it claims to do.
here is the thing: builtwise this is the worst phone i have ever had. it looks so cheap....made up of junk plastic. moreover the slider.....its wobbly and shaky. i feel like its gonna fall apart any time soon. it does not worth your money at all. its a shame nokia.
wats the differnence between the 20 and 30 firmwares.. i want to update the firmware to 30 but wats the use of updating it.. any idea
Nokia Neva said the N96 was an upgrade 2 the N95 8GB.......its an ALTERNATIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wanted 2 purchase the N95 8GB yet i didnt coz i needed more space.....so The N96 is an ALTERNATIVE.........Nokia realised that peaople are different so in order 2 suit the needs of numerous people and meet there charector standards in wat phone they should use, they produce a number of models with similer features for u 2 choose from.....that way they meet ur perdonal needs.....!!!!So if u dnt like the N96 that means it wasnt ment 4 you......Your baby is being Made by Nokia as we speak. So leav the N96 Alone....!!!!! This multimedia computer is outstanding!!!!!! N95 8GB Rules...
I think N95 8GB is amazing piece of device such its predecessor N95. It does has dual sliding, multimedia, GPS n quiet good battery life (1200mh) though (Apple iphone can be use up to 8 hours continuously) while n95 8gb can only be used at mere 5-6 hours. One thing i wonder why does nokia n95 doesnt support any touchscreen mode such as samsung omnia and Apple iphone so we can easily access to internet and multimedia. Thats the only drawback i found out on tis product. Apart from that, nokia N95 8GB is the great phone to be own especially someone like me.

Unfortunately, the phone seems to be faulty out of the box.
F... moreWell, from your experience, you should know you got just a faulty piece :)
Mine works perfect. It worked even before I updated to 30.
I've been using this phone for 4 months, and it's the best phone I have ever used. Everything can be customised! The camera is stunning, too!

Unfortunately, the phone seems to be faulty out of the box.
First I noticed that the sliding screen cover was a little loose and I suggested to myself it wasn’t a major problem and that an adjustment could be done to fix it at nokia service deparment, but the worst was about to come.
After charging the device fully I turn it on. A massage “start-up failed, contact your retailer” appeared. After 3-4 attempts the phone loaded and was working. It was a little slow and with some strange menu jumps at first but, after a couple of hours the phone restarted by it self and seemed to be working much better. I tried to restore the phone, using the N-Series PC suit program which I had from my other N95-2 but, unfortunately again, this attempt failed through the progress at 81%.
My last attempt was to update the firmware as that the new v.30.0.018 was available from Nokia software’s updater program for this phone. This action was installed successfully and made the phone working much better, but again you could notice that it wasn’t perfect and it has turned off several times by its self.
I’ve had NOKIA phones all my life including the N95 and N95 8GB so I think a can be in a position to understand that something is wrong or not.
8 hours from my purchase of this phone, made me hate it and forced me to give up and repack it.Not even the screen sticker was ever removed.
With all the respect, all the above mentioned are very honest. I think I deserve a fully replacement and not a fixing service. I have decided to will wait for the new N96 or N85 to arrive. I hope NOKIA SHOP accept my decistion.
just said goodbye for the meantime on my Nokia 7710 & just bought this nokia n95 8 gig. I want to test the capabilities of this phone as per users opinion. hope that it will surpass my 7710 in terms of functionality. I haven't played it.
Kangaroo, 13 Sep 2008I think you should go for the Nokia N95 8GB from the 2 phones that you have mentioned. The N95... moreHey,thanks allot for ur help...I really needed to get a proper image of both the fones....Thanks once again mate!!!!
And what about N95(8gb) & the new N96???Which one is better???Well the n96 does have some additional features....Has it released???If it has,do u know the cost???
i bought zis phone in 2007 as soon as it was released in HONG-KONG. To my surprise i got a fake OS of symbian.
