for my need's i have no problem's with the battery on the n95 and i do everything this other guy does with the exception of wi fi on all the time,but my workplace has free wi fi so i don't continually search there and wherever else i'am i might start a search. i listen to music alot and use gps here and there. As for style i'am very happy with how the n95 look's!
i just want to share my personal opinions about the N95(8gb) and the iPhone(8gb) UNLOCKED. i guess you could call this the "KING OF PHONES" vs the "JESUS PHONE" if you want. lol. i was fortunate enough to be able to use and test these 2 and i'll try to keep this as factual and as unbiased as i can. but first of all, just to let y'all know, i've never been a "fanboy" of NEITHER of these two companies - I'VE NEVER had ANY "apple" products before(the iPhone was my FIRST) and my nokia experience has only been with the N95-2(currently), n6600(my very 1st nokia phone), and the n80ie. i was mainly a "sidekick" fanboy as i've had the sidekick 2(regular/special ed.), 3(reg./spec. ed.), lx, and slide. i've also used other t-mobile phones(which is my carrier, actually) such as the wing, blackberry 8700g, and the 8100 pearl. i've also used other phone's such as s.e.'s: w900(i LOVE this one!), w810, t290a, p990i and htc's: p3600, p4350, and the softbank x01ht(equvalent to the tytn). now that y'all know my cellular background let's get on to the report, shall we!? ^_^
STYLE/FORM FACTOR: (winner, iPhone)
the iPhone is larger and sleeker whereas the n95 is short and stubby. this one comes down to personal preference i guess and i like the iPhone better on this one.
BATTERY LIFE: (winner, iPhone)
at first i didn't believe what i read on the forums but it's true! the n95's battery life is pretty short. i was only playing with the phone for a couple of hours like sending text, surfing the web, NO CALLS, wi-fi constantly on, played around with the GPS, and after FOUR HOURS(from a full charge) my battery life was down to half! on the iphone i can do the same thing and it could last me up to two days.
CAMERA: (winner? duh!)
N95, OF COURSE!!! 5mpx with flash, autofocus, and 30fps video > than 2mpx, NO video, NO autofocus! lol.
i gotta go on a break. to be continued.......
i phone buyer's , if you want gps, pull out your pocketbook, cause you won't get it in the i phone. want a good camera that is with you alway's in your phone. You won't find it in the i phone, 2meg with no auto focus or flash. why even bother to put a camera in the i phone. apple save's money by putting a cheap camera in the i phone and leaving other good feature's out. apple want's to attract people with the look's of the i phone and touch screen.
Reality is that today's consumer is quite sophisticated and able to evaluate a product, word of mouth is around and Iphone is being recommend from one user to another, and the end the result is million sold.
Evaluation is not on sterile specs but overall user experience/benefits.
Consumers are free to decide and " massive Mac momentum" is their choice
as was already told by someone who use's the n95 and the i phone. the i phone has no 3g like the n95. i phone has 2g and it is more expensive on data than the n95 when there are no unsecured wi fi around.
what about the consumer. you don't care about them. software update's is what is good for the consumer, not i phone 2 if that's what is coming. Stop thinking about your pocketbook all the time nj3 and start thinking about the consumer.
Fact of life :
RBC Capital raises estimates on Apple based on ‘massive Mac momentum,’ European iPhone success
Thursday, December 06, 2007 - 08:48 AM EST
In a note to clients yesterday, analysts at RBC Capital Markets reiterated their "outperform" rating on Apple Inc. (AAPL) shares and raised their estimates on the Cupertino California-based Mac-, iPod-, and iPhone-maker.
November data from the firm's Technology Adoption Panel point to 'massive Mac momentum' in the current holiday quarter. RBC expects 2.4 million Macs to be shipped in the holiday quarter, up 9% over last quarter's all-time Mac sales record (2.2 million units) and 47% over last year's holiday quarter. The firm expects worldwide Mac share to rise to 3.7% in calendar year 2008, up from an estimated 3.1% in calendar 2007, with Mac share of the U.S. PC market rising to 9.3% from 7.2%.
The analysts say that, based on store visits and meetings with carriers, Apple’s iPhone has been received well in Europe. Apple’s European iPhone sales are also ready to surge, with the product’s launch in other nations and the expected rollout of a next-gen 3G iPhone in "the first half of 2008," the analysts added.
EPS estimates for FY08 and FY09 have been raised from $4.80 to $4.81 and from $6.00 to $6.02, respectively. Analysts upped thier target price from $205 to $215.
RBC Capital expects Apple to sell 400,000-500,000 iPhones in Europe in Apple fiscal first quarter 2008.
joe. i just like pissing nj3 off, because he call's the n95 no good and you and i know that is far from the truth. i have the n95 and it's fantastic.
the only good thing apple could do is give you more feature's and i mean alot more feature's thru software update's, but i thought i heard about a i phone 2 coming out. i guess you would like that better since it would put your share's up, nevermind the fact that people would have to spend money all over again, who had bought i phone 1 so they could get i phone 2.
0 = obsolete? I'm not an iphone fan, but this phone is far from obsolete.
Neat phone - for someone that wants an ipod with some cool phone features, this is great. For the person that wants a hi-tech gadget that, that isn't just the mainstream, I'd go with the N95 - way more gadgets.
for amrut joshi :
i want to donate to you but dont know how. not working on the iphone.
i still cant send to multiple people as soon as i try it exits and brings me to main menu.
also would be nice if i could use contacts
Well said Ryone I feel so sorry for those N95 guys, they have an
apparently " good " device that does not come even close to the unbelievable ease of use and rational of the Iphone.
They keep writing meaningless comments in a desperate attempt to deny the SUCCESS of the Iphone, Apple shares UP again today 2.16 %.
Save your time and buy Apple shares, they will more than double again in the next twelve months.
I used to have an n95 before I got my iPhone.
I really dont think you can compare anything to the iPhone it really is in a legue of its own, I mean its not really a smart phone or a normal phone its more than that, its a pleasure to uses. I would never go back to the annoying days of my n95. The n95 also is not a smart phone I'm mean its 2 slow to be smart.
To people who haven't used the iPhone, go to your local dealer and ask for a demo, it will blow you away how well it works.
Here is some of the useful features of the iPhone-
1. Msn style text messaging
2. Great mp3 Player (after all it Is an ipod)
3. Great mp4 movie player
4. Big bright, high res screen
5. good camera
6. Fantastic Internet browser
7. Push email
8. Live widget reports
9. Great data tariffs with o2
10. Very fast
11. Fun youtube app
12. Edge! (better battery life than 3g)
14. Facebook app
15. Plus many more...
The best thing about these features is they work! And they work well!
If you can afford the iPhone, get it! You wont ever go back, also dont do any of this unlocking rubbish, its designed for the network in mind and the tariffs with unlimited data are great!
Oh this is written on my iPhone!
Nokia shares going cheap anyone?
Thanks for your time
