remember all of this, at this time im with a Moto Z3 with some "modified firmware" wich is a thing back in the days and one of my work coleagues do have a N95 at time, waste of money cause i feel the phone bulky and thick.
Even, i look for it and desire one, i saw what will happen sooner or latter, Nokia put the legs ahead of the foot and make a mistake, they are in a hurry and forget to calm down.
Doing like 100 models of phones a year is too much, people will not have the info we have today and just can compare them.
Nokia pay with his own fame, is own pride...now, look what they are, the same fate will happen to sammy and/or apple one day, when people realize they are buying the same phone over and over, year after year..cause is that who can move a company, they need to sell even if the fish is smelling relly bad.
It wasn’t the N95 , rather it was the N97 that was beginning of the End. The N95 paved way for some great Symbian phones until the iPhone arrived with multitouch and later Android gained momentum. The N97 was dead on arrival
I was still using a Nokia phone until my wife upgraded to the iPhone 6 when it came out and I received her iPhone 5 as a hand me down. I still miss the all week battery life, ruggedness and the extreme small form factor of the Nokia. But that's about all I miss though. The iPhone 5 was so much better and I could not see myself using a feature phone again.
I had N95 before.
I installed Garmin GPS for Symbian, and it became my first and reliable turn by turn navigation device.
good ol day.
Nokia oh Nokia, I always remember you as the king of phone's exterior designs.
This sweet time were phones had feature that actually served a purpose :
*Display with no hole notch and other stupidities.
*A front camera who didn't spy on you.
*Having mechanical parts at a time were no one were stupid enough to say "Blahblahblah wear, blahblahblah moving parts, blahblahblah fragile, blahblahblah water and dust, blahblahblah point of failure" while most of those phone probably haven't had any mechanical related issues and many would probably were still on working conditions nowadays if they haven't been trashed for a more recent type, many of those 13 years old devices are still working even with heavy use every days.
Meanwhile guys are worried about the same kind of mechanical system on a phone that will be dead in 5 years.
If only those glorious days could come to the Smartphones, there are SO MANY features available to be implemented into smartphones, but none of the really interesting, amazing, practical, important and yet cheap features are available on smartphones, but meanwhile stupid idea like "puke hole", "cursed edge display", "underperforming scamera", Jack port removal, putting the smallest and worse possible ambiant light and proximity sensor, non removable batteries, 5G and other stupidities are trending...
Those phones had multiple amazing era where many interesting evolutions and features saw the light, not so much for Smartphones...
I remember installing Windows 98 on the 8gb version since it had 128mb of RAM.
Also official SD card expansion capacity was limited to 4gb on the regular n95 according to the company, yet it would happily take in 16gb memory card.
Nokia N series phones would happily support more expandable storage than what it was rated for.
