Guys I am considering to buy a phone with a good music playing capability and with a handsome camera. I have considered 3 phones, 1 from SE and 2 from Nokia. Can you guys tell me which one is the best?
1. Sony Ericsson W980
2. Nokia N78
3. Nokia 5320 Express Music
I am waiting for 5320 to come out so its music capacity could be judged with W980. I dont know much about N78 tough. I like W980 but it has a drawback that its camera is placed on an inconvenient location and there is no flash. Could anyone of you help?
is its loud speakers and headset louder than n81???
i'm going to buy one of them (n78,n81)which one is worth to be bought????
des, 06 Jun 2008Hi people, ijust got my n78 phone yesterday...the speakers are clear,loud and the A-gps n wifi... moreThe speaker phone is load and clear for ringtones only. It is crap for voice conversations, so is the ear piece. Very treblish sounding, it can be quite irritating is noisy places when you set the ear volume high.

about that question. i think the new n78 is nokia's first mobile under their energy conservation scheme. that is the screen is actually shutdown when in standby. all you see is darkness. which is why you can get high amount of music playback at a stretch. that is, nokia says u can get 24hrs music if u dont touch the keypad in between and with the screen turned on you can get around 21-22hours which is also not bad. but there has to be a setting for people who want standby screen. but the benefit is quite high. you could just unlock the phone and look at the time right?
Hi people, ijust got my n78 phone yesterday...the speakers are clear,loud and the A-gps n wifi have been good as they connect fast...navi wheel is a plus...but the only downside that i feel is the design for the back cover...they shld give a mechanical lens cover protector just like n82...as for back cover being wobbly, i dun experience this prob..mine is attached firmly..as for comparisons, the onli difference i see btwn n82 n n78 is the camera onli...but 3.2mp is gd enuf for me..as for the fm transmitter, it is wonderful...great to use in a car...if u dun need a 5mp camera...go for the n78 man...just my 2 cents worth of opinions.. :)
I bought this phone a few days ago and returned it yesterday. I reverted back to my N82. Why? Here's why i ditched the N78.
1. Voice and speaker phone quality is bad, sounds very tin-nish, but ringtone quality is good.
2. No screen saver to show miss calls & sms.
3. Battery cover shaky.
4. Overall phone feels cheap due to poor build quality.
My advice to those present N82/N95 owners, please get a hands on with the N78 before buying it. The N82/N95 8GB is much more robust and solid.
Okay. I bought myself the N78, and to be honest im having more fun using this phone then the N95 8GB, i love everything about it, but at first, it's going to be hard using the buttons, but after a while everything seems so easy.. The only thing that shouldve been added to this phone is the 5mp camera.
however ive got a question that i hope someone would help me with, does anyone know where to find the option that when the phone is idle shows you the time and the date like all other older nokia phone?
I'm really torn, the feature set is perfect for me, it's exactly what I want. The build quality and crashing is keeping me from getting it though.
cheers to all who are proud owner of N78.
2 question I would like to ask for your opinion since u've used the phone.
How do u find the keypad, N73 according to alot of people is too small. How abt N78 ?
As to the speakers positioning, do u find it well placed. When u hold the phone itsn't one of them blocked.
Thanks in advanced for N78 users for your frank opinions.
If Nokia continues to stick with N81-like design and construction, I for sure will be staying away from N series
sitsiritsit alibangb, 04 Jun 2008n82 has more richer functions compare to n78Good handset ,radio transmeter is so good.
Hey... Does anyone know if the volume of the loudspeaker is very soft? i presently own a sony ericsson k800i and find my phone volume very soft. Is the volume of the loudspeakers very soft on the n78? is it as loud as the n73? is the sound quality good from the loudspeakers? i find the quality of sound from my k800i to be average only. thanks in advance. is the camera better than my k800i? k800i has a xenon flash though, without the xenon flash, is the camera performance still acceptable for night photos?
Just got the phone 3 days ago, my Remarks as follows:
1. Menu set up in a different manner then other Nokia phones.
2. Application are minimal.
3. Sound Clear.
4. Restarts several times by itself.
5. Battery life is ok
6. Connection setting more difficult.
7. Hangs several times (you must remove battery).
8.I did not try out the camera yet.
9. You can’t move folders to Main menu.
10. AGPS is ok.
I would wait for software update to fix the many bugs.
n-82 and n-93 has more function than n-78
but n-78 is a slim phone as compare to all
symbianworld, 04 Jun 2008A huge image gallery: http://symbianworld.wordpress.com/2008/06/04/nokia-n78-preview-and-imag... morethe back cover seems HORRIBLY put...it looks like there's a huge bump in the middle and only the top and bottom of the cover actually touch the phone! I'm seriously considering n82 but i really wanted this phone for its navi-wheel and fp2, but its no use if its such a fragile phone...the n82 looks very durable with metal and actually has a lens cover.
I don't think its appropriate to compare which phone is better & which is not. I believe when one buys a phone, he should already know what functions / design he needs.
Of course, the more functions or higher quality finish of a phone will usually have a higher price tag. Every phone will have its unique features.
As for N78, it cost higher than N82 maybe its due to the new Symbian FP2. So one has to pay for the latest feature.
In Singapore, this phone cost $288 with a 2-yrs contract. Its cheaper than N82. But I got this because of its high battery capacity.
