fantastic phone,not perfecte but verry good features,the fm transmitter works perfectly but some interferences expected with some fm radios harde to find a free frequence,blootooth,wifi,photo,video,mp3 player
.........etc bad points the keybord,file managing,complicate menu,it took me an hour to configurate evry thing as i want it,,no watch on the screen saver verry important for me ,in
conclusion you wont be disipointed by this fone ,handeled ,good designe.i like it.
i think it has some very good features that lots of phones don't have ( surely not 5 months ago when it was released) like GPS you couldn't get it excpet on a special GPS phone, or wifi: pretty exlusif to, it has a decent camera with a flash and a 3.5 mm jack wich comes in handy since it has an fm radio and is music based; according to me some people are beaking it down to much, i do think that N82 is better but N78 is smaller and has a more beautiful design ( for me) but i am also in doubt between the e71( stainless steel back, QWERTY and only 10mm)

If you buy this phone today, you'll regret it 6 months later. It will be half the initial price cheaper by that time. It's just not worth buying. With its current price, save your money for the moment and wait til N95 8Gb price drops down a little bit.
This phone is too expensive for it's specification.....
what i like about n78 are its fm transmitter, large capacity battery and feature pack 2. what i dont like about it is its design. it looks cheap, cheaply copied from n81 8gb. i dont see myself buying this expensive phone. i'd go for the 5mp camera w/ xenon flash, vga 30fps video recording, accelerometer, 3d graphics accelerator, 128mb ram, tv out of n82 than this n78.
At the era when blogging/youtube/facebook/myspace etc are so important to people you would have thought video would be top priority. So I still think it is surprising and also a deal-breaker that nokia's video on their 'best' phones is still the worst on the market...
The N78 lacks important thing - VoIP support. Obviously Nokia decided to remote it from all Feature Pack 2 phone (N96 and others).
Fring will work arround, but it is not the true replacement for Nokia's built-in Internet Telephone application.
You can'y also edit Access Points, etc.

After the firmware updates, the Navi-Wheel don't seem to be as sensitive as before. Prefer it previously.
One thing I notice is the opening of the menu & sub-menu is much faster than before.

Hi to everybody,
Just wait for the new software update of this phone. Im sure this will works great after all and better than you expect. Just think about the other Nseries phones only works superior after the succesful updates...Thanks
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2008Firmware update is out, it fixes the naviwheel and music player responsiveness, hopefully this... moreWell done dude. Thanks for keeping us updated on the new firmware. Such a breeze doing it over WIFI. But after the updates, the menu 'effect' is gone.
