bulky piece of ****
do not buy breaks really easily ( it fell out my pocket and the screen cracked and the back snapped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The only thing i don't like bout this phone is the keypad... so small in an average size phone
The Keyboard is bad bad very bad
and the numbers is small
The Specifications is Great and the camera - sounds but the keyboard is small and bad
It is a real cool phone. I bought here in oman three weeks back for 180 rials, same price as n82, ie. around US$ 468. Its speakers are well placed but i have not heard the n81 to compare.For some reason it doesn't show the clock on powersaver mode!! Doesn't anyone know how to mae it show the clock???

But the GPS is giving problems. I had reset my phone then reinstall the GPS application yet still can't get a fix.

When on a call, if one presses on "Loudspeaker", it says "handset activated" but loudspeaker itself is not activated.

If it's a silent room - I have to turn down the volume 2 notches to hear a person comfortably, otherwise it's too loud. If it's a loud shop - turn it up to max and you're fine. More to it - the phone will enhance the sound in the speaker too if it's too loud outside.

And finally, there are hacked Nokia Maps 2.0 came out recently, which allowed you to use navigation free. I'd understand paying $250 for the phone and pay to use navigation, but when it's ~$450 for the phone + $ for so-so Navi... Nokia, give me a break. Even though it's v2.x of Nokia Maps s/w - it's still using inferior algorythms to calculate routs, alot less precise them standalone N/S (I'd say +/-30 meters in worst cases), aquires sattellite signal unbelievably long (you're REALLY lucky if it takes 1 minute). And to pay for it?... No, thanx Nokia. :)

Thanx jake. The only problem is that namibia is a third world country and there is only one shop in the hole country that knows about the n78 and that sells it. And i cant wait to buy this phone because i am waiting already a long 2 months, what can i do?
