This device is clearly full of features packed into a remarkably compact package. The only thing people should bear in mind is that until current pricing for the N82, the N78, and the 6220 beings to alter, people are understandably going to question the wisdom in spending virtually £300 for an N78 Classic when for the same money a N82 can be purchased at £300 which additionally has a xenon flash and Wi-Fi. The N78 does have the latest Symbian software on-board, though. The same applies to the Nokia 6220 Classic. Unless people specifically want Feature Pack 2 software and an FM transmitter then the N82 is clearly the better option. Pricing must alter or sales of the N78 and the 6220 will not occur in vast numbers.

hey hi,,i got n78 yesterday, got excited to use, but within 2 hours of use, got an error phone memory full.delete some data..did d needful, but its very funny sometimes phone memory shows as 65 kb and the next minute it shows as 0b
I've tried using Google Map 2.0 instead of Nokia Map 2.0. Overall the GPS can get a much faster fix with Google Map, about 5sec after launch.
However, one need to take note that it is data intensive while using Google Map. It will be good if u have an unlimited data plan. Not advisable to use it overseas though.
Also, it is much "smoother" while looking at other parts of the map compare to Nokia Map 2.0.
Over all the phone is with good feathures, accept the keypad its very small, but lot of software complaints, it liked the FM transmiter

Could you tell me the sound quality between N78 vs N73?

Louie, 23 Jul 2008Can u guys explain to me what GEOTAGGING does?? why is it some kinda important?Louie, it basically means that your photos and videos are tagged with the location where they were taken. When viewing them at a later date you then have the option of showing the location on the world map (automatically though nokia maps). Not essential and a bit of a perk, but pretty cool
Louie, 23 Jul 2008Can u guys explain to me what GEOTAGGING does??
why is it some kinda important?geotagging, s d process of adding geographical identification metadata (multiple content item or info) to various media such as images, websites, and RSS feeds. ds data usually consists of latitude and longitude coordinates, though it can also include altitude, bearing, and names of places.
important or no, it depends on d user. if ur d kind of guy who embraces d digital era, wants extra data to b included automatically wd ur shots and blogging is part of ur lifestyle den geotagging wil be very useful for ya.
hop dat helps =)
Can v change the cover of this n78.coz the original cover is quite sensitive

You dont there not very good, get a n95 there much better
Stefanus, 22 Jul 2008One more question. I read some where that a N78 user only have a certain number of weeks or da... moreYeh you can still use it you just have to pay for it, its the same on m8 95
Shreyas, 22 Jul 2008give me reason.... why do I buy N78..
plz.... help me...
A.the price is low considering its capability
1.display quality is better than n82 and n95 8GB
2.FM transmitter (won't find that in many smart phones)
4.geo tagging (both photos and videos)
5.processing speed is twice as fast compared to other nokia nseries.
6. to top it up, its got a "navi wheel" meaning you can scroll some applications faster the same way you do with apple ipods.
need more reasons or have doubt? let me know
hi there, i just got my n78 today but i want to quickly post this. refering to the keypad everyone is "crucifying".
listen, there's nothing like the keypad ever at the same time using this keypad is hell? no way, this keypad is heaven sent! come on, it's a smart phone, the keypad is sleek!
small though which i think is just fine cause it dosen't create any errors while typin. gotta finish going through all the features....if need be u can ask me what ever doubt you have. finally, i recommend the phone.
ps:the "voting results" is too low for n78 considering its features.
give me reason.... why do I buy N78..
plz.... help me...
Stefanus, 22 Jul 2008One more question. I read some where that a N78 user only have a certain number of weeks or da... moreStefanus, the navigation trial is only valid for 3 days (unless you are in the US where I think they get a 3 month free trial). As I understand it this is the same for N82, N95 etc. It relates to navigation ONLY (turn left after 200 yds etc etc) - all other Maps applications, route planner, GPS location etc still work and the GPS will still follow your journey, and show it on screen, in real time.The N78 (probably N82 and N95 also)also operates Assisted GPS which uses the cellular network if needed, as well as the GPS satelites, to get a quicker location fix. I can get a fix in about 10-15 seconds. This can also be used to geo-tag your photos. Hope this is useful
one reason, its a recent one with the n96 and n82 and it dosent have the same camera... its much weaker compared to almost every new phones 5 mp camera.
