i've have jus got this phone with 4gb mirco sd, i found a prob that when i playing a song then i wan press 'back' to playlist to choose the other songs, at that moment it is so lagging, is it firmwall prob? do this phone need to update by using the nokia software updater? beside that, others are work fine, the sound quality is really good. reply me as fast as possible. thanks!
1. 3.2mega pixel camera is really really great in good light condition, in the might it wouldn't be so precise! Its flash is good. And there is something about this camera u won't found in n82 cam AUTO EXPOSURE!
It is not the best in shooting videos, 15 frame per second make the movie look bad and the phone it self cannot play 3gp well. so for shooting pictures it is very good and for videos not so bad.
2. its keypad is very eazy to use. I have written this post by the phone. U will get use to it very quickly.
3. I don't know why it cannot play 3gp correctly at this time but i ensure u that it is a firmware prob.
4. Sound quality is very good either through speakers or headphone
it is not so loud but it do the job!
6. the n-gage support for it is not available yet
but i tried it with n-gage 1.0 and i found asphalt and space impact very good in graphics and sound and playing with the naviwheel
6. It has a battery better than n82 it last for 3~4 days
7. it has a shaky battery cover. This is real. But i have stick a piece of paper. And it does the job!
8. I don't know if u should by this phone or another
if i were u i would wait til they release a new firmware to improve its preformance and its bugs or wait for n79 but if u want one now go for n82.
I hope that i have helped u.
I fail to understand the GPS operation. I believe connection to GPS satellite is free of cost. Also I heard that it is possible to find the exact location to the height of 13m MSL.
What does this actually show when you open GPS application that comes with this phone? Can somebody help me out in this?
Is it true that if u update the phone it will have problems/it will get slower?
just bought it
im happy and excited to navigate this phone...
but yeah, back cover is a little noisy and moves around...I placed a tissue inside like what ive read here...

I have owned my N78 for 1 week now. So far, I have the following feedback for other owners and those who are planning to get one.
In terms of phone performance and other high tech contents, the N78 is very good and very competitive. This phone is for those who want good performance, good looks, and savvy.
For music, it can play any format. The earphones are superb for listening to your files. On the other hand, the phone's speakers cannot be compared with your home system. But all in all, this is a very good music phone.
Picture quality may not be at par with the 5MP cameras, but quality and resolution is good enough. That is why you have your digicam right?
The WiFi is superb. It works very fast and you'll find yourself hooked once you start posting your pics on the website of Ovi or any other activated ones.
Overall build qulity is good. I find the key pad easy to use and the Navi wheel to be smart in terms of accessing your files. For the back cover complaints, kindly check the phone first before buying. Mine did not have this problem. As a not also, the back cover acts an antenna if you notice the contact points.
To sum it up, the Nokia N78 is a very good and cool phone. It takes time getting used to when it comes to the features, but it's worth the time. When I got it last week, I chose it over the N79 because of the cool appearance: illumination blacks out and this is the only phone that offers that form factor. Most importantly, I chose this one because of the connectivity. Also the memory is superb as it has a 2GB memory card included. But in terms of features, it is at par with the other higher priced phones. This should be on top of your list.
