N81 was never made to be popular, its a niche device mainly aimed at Music, and Gaming and to bring in some new things to FP1 LIKE the Transition Effects, Navi-wheel and the design, so N81 will cost a little more N81.
The N78 dropped in price because its a mid-end mixed bag, it was released at a lower price than N81, so obviously its price will be low and the upcoming successor N79 is nearly here anyway.
yeah!! it has gone down so drastically. how come? is it really that bad? is it much worse than n81? is it due to its unconventional keypads?
hi,three is a question about my real player in phone that when it play the mp4 files at the begining show it stop and dont play this files
In the Philippines, price of N78 has already drops down to P13,900 this week. It's the most affordable Nseries as of today. N81 8GB is still P16,300 and N81 is P14,000. While the price of N82 is stable at P18,100, N95 is P19,400 and N95 8GB is P25,300. To those who will buy one of these phones in the Philippines, be guided by the current pricing.
how come n78 is cheaper now than n81 in the philippines? 13,900 for n78, 16,300 for n81 8gb. n78 is supposed to be more expensive because it's newer and has more features. i think it will be a great buy.
OMG!! the price of this phone is decreasing dramatically here in the Philippines, in just a span of one week it drops to 13,900 pesos from 16,000. So excited!!!!

N78 is a good-looking phone. It's very neat. When the keypad light is off you won't notice anything but the glossy surface. Sound quality is the best. Can't think of anything better. Picture quality of the camera is excellent. GPS navigation is great. You get a satellite fix in less than a minute and signal never loses once you're connected. Display is so bright, colors are sharp. Battery life is the best. Heavy use lasts the battery a whole day, in moderate use it's 3 days. User interface is very nice. FM transmitter and naviwheel are fun features of this phone. You can surf the internet using WiFi and even faster HSDPA. Everything is great about this phone. I can't think of any downside. Well it's prone to fingerprints but I can get away with it. It's just so stylish. I love this phone a lot.

Hope you get what i mean.
does anyone know if you're able to use a 8gb memory card in the nokia n78?
holla back at me!

But because i'm in Australia, the n79 hasn't arrived yet. I'm sure because of its larger array of specifications and larger megapixeled camera, it will be as expensive as the n96 or n85 when they both arrive here too. I just felt that the nokia n78 was stunningly more handsome. But i agree that the n79 has the better specs. Good day to u sir
. Get Ready For N78 N-GAGE .
.They have unlocked the Nokia 5320 XpressMusic N-Gage Support .
N78 looks "gay" as well, and that was said by one of my friends who's a girl when i recommended it to her. IMO rather get N82 or wait for N79 both are better and priced similarly to N78. Funny how some N78 users were bashing the N81 yet the N78 is actualy the one in the WORST position. Im very glad i didnt jump in to get this lemon.
Tsepz, 30 Aug 2008Forget the N78 mate, the N79 will be out soon and is far better. N79 has 5mp camera, TV-Out, A... moreyea but the n79 looks like crap. Why would u want all those goodies for such a gay looking fone?
Turin0, 30 Aug 2008Helo. Im a 5700 user. I want to buy a new phone. Im choosing am0ng N81 8GB, N78 at N82. Here i... morejuz to make it simple
buy N82 if u r after top notch camera quality, GPS, average music, and not so loud speakers, not so bright screen, great build quality, n TV out
buy n78 if u r after FM transmitter, slick S60 UI 3.2 transition n effects, average camera n music (in loudspeakers), above average quality in headsets, best screen quality amongst em, GPS, navi-wheel, n not so good build quality (btw, i can offer u 15K for N78 with official 1 year nokia warranty [im serious])
buy N81 8GB if u r after d best music quality whether by loudspeaker or headset amongst em (only N91 can defeat it and 5310XM trails behind it in headset output quality), real landscape n-gage gaming, slide form factor, bonus S60 UI 3.2 effects found on N78, navi-wheel, n good build quality (but i recommend u to buy N81 2GB instead, as microSD cards will soon hit d 32GB capacity)
hop dis helps =) (juz tell me if u r interested wd bnew N78, my last price is P15K)
Tsepz, 30 Aug 2008Forget the N78 mate, the N79 will be out soon and is far better. N79 has 5mp camera, TV-Out, A... morebut once the n79 is released, the price of the n78 will probably go down and it will make it more attractive to those with a budget
Turin0, 30 Aug 2008Helo. Im a 5700 user. I want to buy a new phone. Im choosing am0ng N81 8GB, N78 at N82. Here i... moreForget the N78 mate, the N79 will be out soon and is far better. N79 has 5mp camera, TV-Out, Accelerometer for auto rotate, better buttonr, video recording at VGA 30FPS, N78 is VGA 15FPS and is appauling. N79 also has the FM Transmitter. Whatever N78 can do the N79 can do better. :-) and N79 will be around the same price, wait.
Helo. Im a 5700 user. I want to buy a new phone. Im choosing am0ng N81 8GB, N78 at N82. Here in SM Northedsa, N78 is only 16k, N82 is 19k, and N81 8GB is 15k. I want N81 8GB becos Im a music adDict and it has a large memory already, no need to buy an extra mem0ry card. It already has 3g, wifi, 2.4" screEn, naviwheel, stereo speakers, 3.5mm jack, ngage and becos it's nseries, the galLery is a r0tating 3D gallery unlike 5700 w/c is only plain gallery. I think N81 8Gb is the best buy 4 me. But I saw N78 and it's only 16k now, only 1k is the difference between N81 8Gb & N78. And N78 has a lot m0re fEatUres becos it has 3.2mp camera w/ Carl Zeiss optics & autofocus, VGA video, wifi , HSDPA, GPS, FM transmitTer, naviwheel, FP2. So Im realLy c0nfused. I cant dEcidE if i will go f0r N81 8Gb or N78. My c0ncern is h0w g0od is N78 as a music player, the s0und of speaker, w/c has better s0und in headset & speaker? I lyk the dEsiGn of N78 but they say that it's build is creaky and it's pr0ne to scratches. Im realLy c0nfusEd.
