Bad points:( Screen goes black after two seconds regardless of what app you are running on the phone. New firmware briefly fixed this problem but it happened again quite soon after the upgrade.
Keyboard is an acquired taste. I've got big fingers and I find it useful to have raised keys. Make sure you try the keyboard before buying.
The phone does pick up interference from electrical devices sometimes causing an annoying hum, didn't notice this with N73.
The good points:) Phone is quick, music player is well designed and it works well with a 16GB micro SDHC card.
The camera takes great photos and is easy to use, much like the N73 before it.
FM transmitter gives good quality music streaming to Hi-Fi though phone must be quite close.
Overall I'd recommend this one if you liked the N73. It's a slimmer, faster version with capacity for large mem cards and bonus of FM transmitter. I'm sure Nokia will fix the screen blackout problem soon.

digi_india, 10 Sep 2008I am using N78 for last 5days. It is a very good phone. Batt. backup is very good. Loud enough... moreHi Digi...
From whr u brought N78 phone. I am planning to bye it from mobile store.....
Here in Saudi Arabia they sell N78 Brand New by $293 (made in China).
hey guys i can play n-gage games on my n78v12.xxx i install n-gage 1.10 apps thin install n-gage games with .n-gage extension,...
All my n-gage games are full version so go dotsis.com and reg. there and look for n-gage games and download, its for free also the n-gage apps.
After making extensive research I came up with following n78 review, notice I am not an expert but I like technology...here we go
nokia n78 cons first:
-camera not as good as other n series phones
-keypad might be failty and it is a libilty
-flash not as good as xneon that the n82 and higher end model has and it does not work as good in door(so if you photography freek don't get n78 , you might be sorry)
-back cover reported in earlier versions of n78 (n78-1) has some issues as not steardy
-phone body built of cheap material (a lot of people think so but it might not be the case)
-os has many bugs as it still new release
-it does not have tv out like n82
now to the pros
cheap ..cheap cheap!!!at least here in the US market(at least $150-170 cheaper than other new nseries models)
has all the future of n96 (exept the camera ) and more!!!!
looks great (has the great looks of the sony ericsson)
FM transmitter is future that no other phone has (it allow you to play your music stored on your phone on your care or home radio by finding avalible FM frequency)
and for that I went ahed and bought n78 ...yep it is the best phone avalible in the market tody for the price of $ 320 only ..great buy and has it all ( future wise it beat the I phone and price wist it kill the n82 and the n96 too amazing hah!! go get your self nokia n78 and enjoy....;)
well, honestly i love it!!
pictures u get from the cam are great!! and when u see em on ur pc they look perfect..
mm i love stereo speakers.. great sound while being in a bar/restaurant and ur mobile is ringing, its pretty loud, nice vibration aswell!! the phone is pretty fast,pic, songs, videos it opens for a sec.. very comfortable while being on a web.. u got zooming options 50% , 75%,100% and 125%, u got rotate screen aswell! but the keypad is a bid of disadvantage, especially the end call one i often cant end the call u need to press under the "media button" or however is called.. and for those who just talk rubbish first try it for a week or two and than say that it sucks.. for these money the phone is the best choice u can make.. ty
filipino, 24 Sep 2008i'm from philippines.. i just want to know if this phone is worth for my money.. or suggest an... morethere are just 2 nseries phones that are in the 15,000 pesos price range - N78 and N81 8Gb. if you're serious about music, definitely go for N81 8Gb which better sound quality through headphones and speakers. if you want extra features such as broadband HSDPA, WiFi, GPS, FM tranamitter, 3.2MP camera, go for N78.
i'm from philippines.. i just want to know if this phone is worth for my money.. or suggest any phone that costs 15000php (300usd) thnx!!
does anyone know about GPS N78. I want to know, do we have to connect to WIFI.Instead of wifi, can we use the GPS like the regular navigation. please
Can somebody tell me that Nokia will be able to bring N-GAGE to N78 by the end of next year. Thanks
