hello one has seen many posts that in total have ended up in text arguments well what can one say? .I have used many nokia phones over many years and to date the N81 has to be the worst phone for the cash outlay one says this due to the poor phone slide that can close when opened when on a call and the slider is loose and you can see light through this gap be it a small one yet over a short time this gap will indeed grow as you use the phone...the N78 may not look as smart as many phones on the market yet it is a beast inside the covers it was designed to be functional and have the power to comply with the imput requested from it and it may take some time to get use to the new interface layout but thats it it may be akin to using xp then moving to vista for the first time and you will grasp the logical layout but all in all the N78 wins hands down for build quality well over the nokia N95 8 gig model due to the poor quality build of the said N95 and i say this as the one i had sufferd from flexing thin plastic sides when the slider was in the fully open position this was due to cheap outlay when in manufacture and may one day be the undoing of nokia but as i understand it nokia will bring out a full touch screen by 11-08 and it will have tactile interfacement with the user and an 8 megapixle camera if you like that type of thing yet when you think even the manufacturer LG can make a phone that has 120 FPS for recording video you need to wonder if nokia are stringing out people by introducing more and more models that are the same yet with a little more function and in some cases the phones have been WORSE that the one it has replaced due to quality issues as indonesia now make some nokia phones in this is been seen in quality build over the last 4 years so what i want to see now from nokia is a video framerate of 150 FPS a 10 megapixle camera and a better cpu and the symbian system needs to be alterd as many can not sign there own work so maybe a windows version may one day be included (i have windows xp on ones old n95) ..sorry for going on and on..
Is it true that from the battery cover you can hear a creaking sound and it is shaking a little bit?
How was keypad? I have large sized fingers, and I'm worried that if I bought this phone I might find it hard to text because of the thin lined keypad. I like this phone. It's simply amazing.

Missing of an important pen key.how can nokia forget the pen key,feel difficult to copy and paste which have to do it manually in the option.
keypad makes me frustrated,the right selection key is to near with the media key which make it difficult to type.
and the number pad,bar without space,speechless. Dont go for this phone. u will regret.

Ihave tried finding it in bluetooth but no devises are found only other phones ... any suggestions?
PS does anyone know where I can download smileys apart from MOSH
there are no smilyes in N78 which makes the phone more professtional like other else than stuyle like :) ands the the middle button keeps flashing every 20 secs or so because it just tells u tht the phone is on not off and it actually looks cool to tell u the truth i really like the phone cuz its profestinal like :D. Im really stasfied with the phone its simple light and not bulky unlike N82 and N65 and N81 and did u knw tht N82 memory only 2GB expandeable to 4GB but the N78 is also 2GB but exopandable to 8GB!!!!! which gives u more capacity so overall i really really LIKE THE PHONE AND IM ADVISING EVERYBODY TO GET IT!!!!! :);)

Nair, 05 Aug 2008Hi everyone... Why does nokia bring out umpteenth models with same features with some add ons... morebecause different phones are targeted to different people, country, network etc. they also have different prices!!!
Feel disappointed on it,nokia n78. just got it abt 2weeks.nothing new except the fm trasmitter. anyway has a week signal,pass through underground like car park totally dont have signal,cannot act as in car handsfree using fm transmitter while making a call(transfer call voice to car speaker using fm trasmitter)
Keypad irritate me,straight bar omg,and the missing of the pen key which normally use to copy and paste in the previous N series.
Even have a stronger processor but it seems like not much different,and the size of the ram was just 96mb,if u r normally running multitasking in browser then it will hang.
Old fashion design.
DONT BUY,u will regret,go for N82.
Hi everybody, I just got my n78, the phone is noting special but is OK. Just to ask do you know is there any way to boost the FM transmiter signal as it is not very strong and the sound from the radio reciever is a bit crap?
The n82 is said to have the best Camera The lack of the fp2 does screw it over lolz but i would say get the n82over the n78 i was originally gonna get the n82 but they had none in stock so i got n78
Its nt seem to look N-serise...
need to be more glorius..
Great Features like Radio Transmitter, its the best experience.
Also the overall speed and data transfer is good but sound is not high at speaker but clear.
Appearence is very much satisfied.
Thanks for choosing for me, but the price is WOW, how much is N81, I want it.....

Hi guys, I'm 16 years old now, which is better for me N78 or N81 8GB? I have read all the review about them but I need your opinions, guys. Thanks a lot
Yep, N78 is a nice device for those who dont require the N82's camera, xenon flash or GPU, bt just a nice allrouder. Its pricing realy doesn't make sense though, it should have been much cheaper than a N82.
The N78 is clearly a very sophisticated device. Anyone contemplating buying it might be advised to wait several months. The price will drop and prospective buyers will be able to compare it with the forthcoming N79. Besides, for anyone wanting this device for photography, at present, unless Feature Pack 2 is clearly required by the user, at the current time for the same price an N82 can be purchased.
