The old n-gage was of course way better than the qd, especially th mp3 decoding chip and the usb port! the negative point is, that it just sucks when it comes to battery power. the 5Lc ion battery is just not enough.
the qd is smaller ,last longer and is also customizable. check an mp3 playing software an listening 2 your songs will be no prob annymore!bad point the loudspeker on qd is mono!not really good but still enough!
My tip is: get the old n-gage, get the akku from the new one and a 512mega card! you'll have stereo mp3 loudspeaker output with lots of memory and astonishing Batterypower. Symbian s60 rules!
check out www.forum.n-gagegaming.com get e-mule kazaa etc an customise that phone via usb!

Before All I must to say thanx for your very gentle commnet QD.
Look, my intention was never ofend you, or insult you, in a past post a user definied me as a "Nokia Hater". The fact is I don't hate Nokia, it's just I don't like because all my GSM experiences with Nokia had been, no bad... terrible, but i know everyone talks about its own life and the way it's been. My intention is no throw sh*t to nokia is just to show my point of view to new users that want an Advice about what cell they must buy. As the way you say N-gage is great and SE (Sony Ericsson No Samsung I don't like Samsung too)is crap, I say N-gage is crap and SonyEricsson and Motorola are great.There always be a great diversity, and that's acceptable. So pleez let's forget this and we better contribute to the good function of the page.
To say it in a nice way DJ, ppl should buy fones that suit them.. Either they want a light, beautifully design and well-shaped fone like what samsung offers or a gaming fone (N-Gage) that suit mostly teenagers or hardcore gamers.. The QD is still a fone that ppl in the gaming category, will buy and adore.. Well the next gen n-gage fones will be coming soon :) lets hope its smaller and cool.. But nokia does release design fones such as N7280 and N7270.. They are great models..
1)"i can tell 'cause my girlfriend has one Nokia N-gage", does that phrase of the past post says somethin' to you? 2)I've used and played Mokia N-gage, the followin' games names mean something for you: Tomb Raider, Fifa and Rayman.... Of course I used and If i say it's a crap it's because it's a crap, not only for sayin'. 3)Why does that huge block, oh sorry, that huge block with Symbian, do you like it? It's huge. If i was you, i feel so embarrasin' havin' it on my hands. You say: Symbian that, symbian this. Donīt forget it doesn't matter if has symbian or not, it matter it's a cellphone and a cellphone must be lite, thin and ERGONOMIC, pleez donīt tell me N-gage has the best design for talkin', if thatīs true I can make my own N-gage, Here's the way how: putting a very bad quality 4096 col screen (ja,ja even my graphic calc has better resolution)in a huge x-box control and after a very bad, very bad microphone mixed with the worst speakerphone i ever use, and that's it you got your N-gage,[even more LOL :-)~].
4)"Nokia is makin' a lot of $ with N-gage", very interesting phrase, I donīt know where but I've heard this phrase :"The fools domain the world".. I canīt understand how Nokia isn't in bankrupt, i guess the phrase xplains it all. Perhaps Someday Nokia learn something about design from Motorola and Simplicity and functions from SE.
dj_ashtray, are u telling me that ur laptop weights 150g?? and is small, portable and pocket sized like the laptop?? are u joking? think before u write anything.. have u ever even use the N-Gage? or its just u don't know how to use it and u decided to say bad things about it.. others won't.. the n-gage have sold millions already and nokia is making loads of $.. while u still complaining things this and that, taking the trouble, to come here and posts crap.
C'mon QD, if i wanna have a lot of applications and a "thousands" of features, i could carry mi laptop. No diference between size 'n weight of my laptop and the N-gage QD. Pleez!!! I'm just sayin', that N-gage as a cellphone is crap, and as a videogame... you, answer this question. A cellphone has to be SMALL and LITE, but I guess nokia hadn't listened this. You say about features, mp3/aac player is the worst i've ever heard (i can tell 'cause my girlfriend has one Nokia N-gage), when bass sounds on a song, C'mon it'sounds horrible totally depressive... instead hear mp3/aac on SE or Mot, don't tell me nothing before listen. Perhaps majority of SE and Moto cellphones don't have Symbian, but the "few" (such as many nokia users say)functions they do,they do perfect.
This cellphone is a downgrade to old ngage, where this the fm radio, where this the mp3 player, come back the old n-gage.
What r u saying man?? Do u even know that this fone is symbian? And with symbian u can do 1001 possibilities if u know how to use your intelligence.. If a person doesn't cared how to use it, then its his loss.. And btw, nokia have already made loads of money with the smartfones they are selling worldwide.. So just go to another forum the moto and se, know your role and stop critisizing this great fone.. From my view, u seemed like those s40 fones..
You should ask in any of the many Ngage forum around.
Copy the game folder eg. 6R67 to your mmc E:\System\Apps and you should also copy the files in the libs folder.
What is the 10 games you got?
hy,I need some help.I managed to get 10 N-gage games but I don,t know how to install them.The games are made of folders with data in them....If you help me I will send you all the games that I have.Pls mail me!
If you want a smart phone with good games (and thats pretty much it) plus bluetooth, then get it, however if you want much more get the 6203i/k750i/d500/e1000 nd derz more...

all i know is that N-Gage classic also supports 1GB cards, also the N-Gage classic is far better than QD, it has stereo MP3 player & Stereo FM adio, and i think it looks better imo, the only stupid difference is that QD has hot swap for MMC (ie u can change mmc without turning off the phone), also the side talk issue which i find unique and cool, if i were u i'd go for Classic but u won't find any brand new ones, u could hardly find used ones too cuz no1 sells such a piece of art, i for one wanna get a classic N-Gage but can't find any
plz people tell me i should buy n gage or n gage qd plz tell me qd or classic i m a help needy person plz tell me and o heard that qd has a 1GB memory plz tell me that also plz
