Plus the photos are much bigger than the resolution settings of a laptop. More megapixels isnt a necessity.
Yes, nokia plans to unveil an 8mp cameraphone soon which has some nice suprises under the hood, but i stil dont believe its worth an upgrade if u have n95/n95 8gb, n82, n79, etc.
About the camera and music, i dont think there is any phone at the moment that can handle both of these perfectly. N96 and innov8 are way too pricey and have battery life issues. N85 has a decent camera and decent sound, but is not the best out there. Same thing with the 5800xm. Good camera, but not the best. Good sound but not the loudest either.
If you must have a good camera and music, get n85 or 5800xm. Just dont expect too much from them.
However, i suggest getting a cameraphone with a good battery life like n95 8gb, n82, n79 etc and get the nokia bh 604 bluetooth headset. They sound the same on any phone and deliver sound better than any mobile phone can currently offer.
virusce, 27 Oct 2008hire is an opinion I don't use digital zoom it ruins the picture I don't watch TV not on a ... morehad it tried it hated it! huge and plastic! kept freezing up and camera so hard to get to use plus lots of shutter lag. battery doesn`t last long, you cant get tv on it unless you live in france, speaker quality poor and very tinny! accelrometre takes 5 seconds to turn images .. was a real let down .. took it back saturday and had the sony ericsson c905.. does what its says on the tin and brill camera and build quality.... absolutely brilliant!
jojo2009, 27 Oct 2008NOOO,
N96 has 20x zoom (N85 doesn't)
N96 has DVB-H (N85 doesn't)
N96 has Flip-out kickstand... morehire is an opinion
I don't use digital zoom it ruins the picture
I don't watch TV not on a 2,8 for sure
Flip-out kickstand but no lens cover DUDE WTF
N96 has better 3D Stereo speakers TRUE
16 gb that is a big plus I agree
BUT WTF TFT BETTER THAN OLED GO THAKE YOUR PILS FOR THIS statement
IF YOU LIKE IT IT'S NOT THE BEST
oled consume less power than tft so the plus for the battery goes fon n85
by the way I used n96 for a week it's quality don't match the price period
no hard feelings but keep it real
Anonymous, 27 Oct 20081250 mA/h battery for N96 is available from VerliPack, same size battery, so no other cover needed.Very good its available now.......I thought it wiwould take some times to make a higher (mAH) battery....cool I'll buy it.
there you can buy the battery I mentioned about in previous mail

Bakekang, 27 Oct 2008U prob'ly dont have a Samsung home stereo component system thats why u have no idea about DNse... moreyes i only have pioneer home theater sys. I have samsung washing machine in my house. So, I DUN understand that crap. thanks.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2008does anyone know how to take the phone off power saving mode??sorry dude, n82 user here.. i have no exact idea on how 2 do that using n96
maybe you should fiddle with the phone settings c",
Seems like everyone has struggled to spell on this page! Never mind, N96 1-0 iPhone
jojo2009, 27 Oct 2008NOOO, N96 has 20x zoom (N85 doesn't) N96 has DVB-H (N85 doesn't) N96 has Flip-out kickstand... morei cant disagree with you dudec", but with n96 bearing a hefty price tag, i cant recommend it 2 everyone, maybe 2 some rich and wealthy people..
Bakekang, 27 Oct 2008Pls dont recommend N85 as a music phone because its sound quality is just slightly better than... moresorry to disappoint you but im not buying nokia 8MP if they'll make one, the bar of camera for normal consumer like me(90% of the mobile market more or less) have been riched already, we dont need 8MP because we dont like to print a life size pic which you might plan of doing and i have a lot of things to do in my life rather than my mobile phone he3 joke
anyways i recomend n85 basing on the most reasonable factor in buying mobile phone for regular consumers, the best value all in one device that has a good camera and music feature
iolo003, 27 Oct 2008i would say that the best Camera and Music phone is Nokia N85
Camera is Carl Ziess 5MP good... moreNOOO,
N96 has 20x zoom (N85 doesn't)
N96 has DVB-H (N85 doesn't)
N96 has Flip-out kickstand (N85 doesn't)
N96 has better 3D Stereo speakers
N96 has 16GB internal,16GB External (N85 just 8GB)
N96 has 2.8 TFT (N85 has 2.6 OLED)
NOTE: (TFT) screens is better than (OLED)
>BUT>>> N85 has 1200 mAH battery
AND the N96 has 950 mAH battery
Just this battery is better than N96,but soon there will be other battery (1200,1100 mAH) available for the N96.
ALSO the both phones has the SAME
(Wifi,3G 3.6 mbps,sensor,naviwheel,S60 3rd v9.3,A-GPS function,Dual slide design,Java MIDP 2.0,3.5 mm audio output jack,TV out,Stereo FM radio with RDS,5MP AF Carl-zeiss camera,Office document viewer ).and also same music features and same sound quality
SOOOO,why N85 better???

Its a sound technology developed by Samsung that gives better amplification and creates sound effects, and reproduces purer, clearer and noiseless sound with all audio elements clearly audible. Fortunately, that DNse 2.0 is now on a mobile phone which is Samsung INNOV8.
iolo003, 27 Oct 2008i would say that the best Camera and Music phone is Nokia N85 Camera is Carl Ziess 5MP good... morePls dont recommend N85 as a music phone because its sound quality is just slightly better than N95 because of some tweaks in the OS. N85 has no dedicated audio chip. It plays music but it's not a music phone. And pls stop saying that 8MP is not necessary because 8MP will be the standard for camera phones in 2009. Even Nokia is currently developing their own version of INNOV8.
i would say that the best Camera and Music phone is Nokia N85
Camera is Carl Ziess 5MP good enough to snap good quality images
Music feature is one of the best among N Series and has dedicated buttons
And its Nokia..
Innov8 is a good phone but its overprice and contains unecessary features like the 8MP that average people doesnt need. Its a marketing ploy.
