Mark, if you can afford the N95 8GB buy it. The regular N95 is just ugly. Otherwise buy a iphone. Or try waiting. Nokia is going to bring or show off new models in february, in the same month the N95 8GB will get cheaper. The truth is, the N95s are fat bulky phones and it's hard to live with them. You look ridiculous when putting it into your pocket. Pictures of the N9x (i forgot the number) have already leaked (it has 5mpx and it is thinner than the N95, looks like the N81). If you ask me, it still is ugly, but it's showing that nokia is hearing us and they will soon (february) bring thinner 5mpx symbian phones. If you can't wait, and don't care about the bulky N95 8GB, buy it. The iphone is great, but you'll have to jailbrake it and you'll lose your warranty when you do it. The new firmware is nice, but the iphone has no delivery reports... It just aint a complete phone.
OTB(out of the box) v.112 are currently unHACKABLE!!! hopefully when 113 rolls out "hackers" can figure out a way how to unl0ck current otb 112's! u can get it "jailbr0ken(run 3rd party appz)" but ull need either turb0sim or stealthsim to make it w0rk wit ur simcard.
how many names do u g0t girl!?! lol. ive been meaning to ans ur post but theres just s0 many BL0CKHEADS on here that i just CANT help myself but to reply t0 their RIDICULOUS posts first!!! lol.
see my reply to mark about the diffs IVE seen/experienced using BOTH handsets(i kn0w u have an n95, right?). as far as size, the iPhone is just a tiny bit WIDER, a little bit longer(maybe half an inch?) and is about HALF as thick as the n95!
as far as functions is c0ncerned, the n95 honestly has MORE but as to what the iPhone does and CAN DO, it does it well! having an iPod, playing movies/watching youtube, internet experience is hands down THE BEST on any mobile device ive EVER SEEN!!! not to mention it gives u a FULL touchscreen experience and a FULL qwerty keyboard! ^_^
but, if u really need the "functions" wait til feb. the iPhone'll get an "external" GPS receiver which'll w0rk with its preinstalled GOOGLEMAPS application and thats gonna totally r 0 c k!!! a2dp, just buy urself an iPod bt adapter and a stereo bt headset and voila! a2dp on ur phone! ^_~ thats if, you really need it. personally, the included stereo headset + mic is good enough for me!
if u have the "installer" app, look for the sends0ng application and install it and itll let you choose ANY song from ur music lib t0 b ur ringt0ne.
I do agree with both of ur comments about the iPhone and the N95, however i own a brand new macbook, ive got a 30GB ipod that ive barely filled, do i really need an iPhone, cuz its not rele that much of a good PHONE, its more the ultimate media device.. and since ive got the other things ive mentioned i reckon id be better off with a N95. theyre the two best phones out. at the end of the day theres not much difference between them when it comes down to it.! so does it rele matter
Another thing to remember when buying a phone is the lastability factor etc. After havin my iphone a few weeks now I still find I`m always lookin at it, playing with it all the time, hardly use laptop now as I can be on a webpage on iphone within 20 secs. Usually after a couple of days with any other phone I`d be throwing it around not really caring to much cause I`m bored of it just waiting for something better to come out. Definately dont get that with the iphone
ooops! 0ne more thing i didnt like about the n95. a2dp is "flaky." wrap ur hand around the handset, and youll have a "bad" connection. hell, even if you just put it in your pocket it sometimes breaks off!
oh, and also, one more d0wnside to having an all-in-one device is that s0metimes itll "freeze" if u have too many appz open and the only way to get it back is to reboot it by removing the battery and putting it back in! small price to pay tho for having everything crammed in your pocket. lol.
Also, in a minute or sometime's less i can lock onto the satelite for gps. A2dp is also good.
yeh i noticed no lens cover.. that will pick up scratches easily.. my current phone has scratches all over the lens.. so lens cover is a must.!
how much did u pick up ur N95 for ?
The touch screen on the iphone is without question quite impressive, but it is lacking in the feature's that the n95 has. Plus there have been issue's of missed call's in loud place's. Not enough volume.
I have the first one but i have a 4gb card which it accept's even though the spec's say 2 gb. It might even take a 6gb card. The n95 8gb has more ram, which is a good thing, but the camera cover had to be taken away to make way for the better battery. plus it's black if that suit's you, and no card slot on the 8gb,all internal memory. Personally i'am happy without moving to the 8gb. Picture's when printed out are really good. gps is also good.
ah ok maybe thats it then thanks.. there are two tho.. The 8GB and the normal one, which 1 do u have ?
I guess the people who owned the iphone but didn't like it and got rid of it also have preconceived idea's about it!!!!!
r 0 c k
more like, most of these statements dissing the iphone is true. i sold the iphone, i had to tell ppl lies on this phone to get them to buy it because they taught it was amazing, but it isn't. so what if it has internet? that's just about the only thing apple knows how to do. also, the iphone is just commercial thats it. no real professional would buy this p.o.s. because its not worth it. its speed can get beat by baby's typing, and she doesn't even know how to type. it is simply only design and the rest is trash, its not really a phone. i mean what's the point if you can only get it in the USA or Canada?
iphone= pay to get most of them unlocked, then it will relock if you update your firmware thru itune's. iphone = no3g, no auto focus and no flash, 2meg camera, missed call's in noisy places, mp3 player not even nearly as loud as the n95, no voice dialing, battery can't be changed on your own, must be sent away to apple, no built in gps, no a2dp for bluetooth stereo headphone's, no bluetooth transfer. mobile review did a test showing the n95 get's 60 minute's more talk tlme than the iphone.
there's nothing wrong with radio. the only thing 'old' about radio except the time it's been around. and radio would be nice for a phone like iphone. just imagine...
yea the multi touch screen is gorgeous right but i wouldn't get too excited about the iphone 2. It's always going to have comprimised features. All apple products always do.
The ipod didnt do anythign except play music (yeah i know thats the point but it didnt go beyond that)
the iphone doesnt do anything. you'd think it might have a radio considering its a music phone.
king kong, i agree with you totally i mean they should fix atleast the software part from there side like mms, video rec, etc and i think even the 3g part can be fixed with a software update but i am not sure, but the user interface is like no phone has it, till date nokia is trying to get the series 60 fromat touch sensitive but its just bull in front of apple, but with nokia you dont worry abt the features, but i still think they will not be able to make the user interface as good as apple.
Honestly, the only thing great about the Iphone is the user experience.. which is the 'touch screen'.. besides that.. NOTHING.. other phones beats its features since 3 years ago...
