Pepsi, just because you make money does not make you a good salesperson. my teachers at school all make money but I can promise you that they're all awful.
Secondly if you were so keen to tell people the bad points about this phone to convince them from buying it, which is fair enough, then why "lie" to those you sell the phone to?
I sense a little hypocrisy.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Obviously i'm a good salesperson otherwise I wouldn't be making money and therefor wouldn't have a job, right?
A good salesperson will sell someone something even if they have to lie about how good it is or how bad it is. This site is a place for people to freely express their opinions without it affecting their real life.
People tend to just buy this phone because it has GPS and a nice camera and is the "latest model" which seems a little strange to me, having something which other people think is "cool" and fashionable is a sturdy basis which people use to buy things like this. I'm not saying don't buy this phone but I'm certainly not saying buy it either, but there is no need to come here and tell everyone how great the phone is without telling people the bad sides of it as well.
Anonymous, 27 May 2008The battery is fine, i don't know y every1 is complaining abt it, especially pepsi, who appare... moreAre you claiming I know everything about mobiles and therefor am right? Why thankyou how kind of you =)
Maybe your battery is fine because you don't use GPS, or the camera, or wifi, or surf the net... A phone battery can't possibly withstand a day if you do all this for hours on end maybe that's why people complain about the battery.
By the way.... The only kind of fail is an epic one. If someone fails they don't forget about it, therefor it's epic
Itseems so atractive to me,I would like to be sure if the G.P.S service will work in Egypt ?
I am wonder also how much it cost
This phone is really one of the best. I just wish that they used vga instead of qvga on their screen. Also, I wish they used more metal than plastic on this high end phone, and made it a little slimmer. It is a creaky phone. I'm looking forward to upgrade if and only if, they would address those issues. The N96 pretty much have identical specs w/ the N95, still qvga, and still lots of plastic materials. I don't think it's worth upgrading to the N96.
If the n95 8gb from rogers is causing a problem then return it and buy an unlocked one, then you are not bound by rogers vision plan for 3 years. Get the north american version ! If you live in toronto go to pacific mall.
The battery is fine, i don't know y every1 is complaining abt it, especially pepsi, who apparently knows everything abt mobiles. "Epic failure" is a bit much, i think.
Ok it says it has an accelormeter or whatever, but when ever I see a video of it, the person has to slide down the multimedia buttons. What's up with that?
@ gsm arena
please make reviews on the major drawbacks such as the durability, malfucntioning interface and various other problems with this phone, rather than just saying its the best of the best
I will get another one from Rogers(can) to confirm if most or all of the phones not that great.
I bought the Rogers(Canada) N95 8GB, this phone freezes so often that the phone will restart itself, if you pres any button or function twice before the phone responds it will restart. This particular phone sucks and please pardon my disapproval, i had high hopes B4 i got this phone, its possible that it its a problem with the handset and not all the phones i am in the process of returning it to Rogers
If the phone didn't freeze it would be a great phone there some applications will not work because the phone inability to process and execute, but the ones that work pretty well (WLAN,Camera, bluetooth, internet(on wifi)) all work well.
hi please can you tell me if the slider mechanism on the n95 8gb is good or not?
many of these phones are comming with a manufacutres faulty camera. i prefer not to buy this phone, instead a nokia n81 8gb is better.
filipinas has a point.
like me. from nokia 6600, i jumped to N95 and needs to rely on the manual. believe me, i have no idea how to use its WLAN and configure some of its setting so I go by the manual. maybe some of you don't read the manual since you are familiar with its UI but for those people who is noob like me, i need to read it and google some of my queries.
thanks for the heads up filipinas =)
I am a user of Nokia, i agree that Nokia's phones built quality is bad, joints will be loose just after few months of usage..plastic quality is bad compared to Sony Ericsson's phones..in my opinion Nokia's plastic feels kinda cheap looking too.....and Nokia's S60 OS....full of bugs...hangs and restarts occasionally.
The n95 8gb is actually 400.00 right now on a 3 year vision plan with rogers. You have to pay for the extra stuff vision gives you!
Just to clear up the GPS questions.
NO. You don't need a subscription, or even a sim card!
GPS is just a stand alone receiver unit built into the phone.
Paying a subscription would be the same as paying to listen to your FM radio!
The signals are sent from the orbiting satellites (you need to receive at least 3 for a good position fix), and the time it takes for the signal to reach your receiver is calculated for each signal received.
So in summary - no subscription needed - no internet needed - not even a sim card is needed for GPS use (SIM needed for A-GPS).
This is the primary reason that I've bought the phone (updating from N73, N82 screen too small).
BTW - price is $580 USD in Cambodia from the official Nokia showroom in Phnom Penh.
What's the best way to clear water damage from it?
I believe it's under the slider - doesn't effect it greatly, but it does stuff up the screen at times.
No, no I don't speak English and clearly I don't understand it
You actually READ manuals? I didn't think anyone did... Which is why no one knows how to use a phone they pay so much for. I would think that maybe that is the reason your battery lasts so long if you did indeed read the manual and followed instructions, perhaps a poll would furthur confirm this.
However I don't think anyone else has ever bothered to read manuals and least of all follow instructions.
