hi guys...how do i off the blinking of light at interval times at the navi-wheel there?
Anoymous, 06 Jun 2008Guys I am considering to buy a phone with a good music playing capability and with a handsome ... morebased on ur needs and plans, i think N78 would be ur best choice. coz it has the best camera wd autofocus and flash, and very good sound quality (in stereo speaker mode and earphone mode [provided dat u plug in a good headset]).
besides, N78 also has d biggest screen amongst em (great for viewing d pics/vids u wil be taking wd its camera). not to mention d intuitive navi-wheel (for easy navigation on ur ever growing music library) plus d ability to search in music library too (a la phonebook) by gradually typing d first letters of d song for faster selection of ur tracks.
wd regards to music playback, both W980 n N78 have d same stamina whilst dis phone, 5320XM got d upper hand by offering a whopping up to 24 hour or 1 day of continuous music. though d latter obviously scores d least wen it comes to camera but still, 5320XM is capable of shooting QVGA videos @ 15fps. take note dat N78 is again d champ here, coz it can produce up to 15fps-VGA resolution videos wd great stereo audio sound. bare in mind dat W980's camera interface is quite ancient, its in portrait mode unlike d nokias mentioned
a few extras, N78 also has WLAN which is good for uploading pics/vids u've created and even utilizes A-GPS in finding ur way to or a place/establishment and also serves an added feature in geotagging ur pics. u can play games in landscape mode with 5320XM wd dedicated gaming keys. both nokias r n-gage ready
FM transmitter r both found in W980 n N78 which can be handy if u forgot ur iPod so u can easily beam (over-the-air) though short ranged only into ur car stereo wd style =)
memory department, W980 has an internal 8GB flash based storage which i admit a pretty capacious for a phone but if ur an audiophile, takes lots of pics/vids or love watching movies on d go 8GB aren't really dat big. albeit N78 n 5320XM either r inboxed wd 1 or 2GB microSD cards only, these devices r microSDHC compliant, meaning theoretically, they can handle up to 32GB cards in d very near future. so far d biggest available microSDHC card is 12GB from SanDisk. also, do consider d processor inside of these phones, d nokias got a faster CPU, being 369mhz n 96mb n 128mb SDRAM in the order (meaning faster operation n better multi tasking). so in those departments, N78 n 5320XM wins
back to music, N78 n 5320XM has an in-built 3.5mm audio jack for more convenience in using ur own headsets while W980 still uses d SE proprietary interface in connecting d adapter for u to use a 3.5mm jacked earphones. for dat matter, d nokias gets d positive point again
other music functions, W980 has walkman ID (basically d device gets database info from Gracenote, just lyk wat some music savvy Samsung phones do - relying on audio sound waves) which is a very cool feature, record a short clip of d song send thru their server n let them recognize d song title, artist for u. means less of d guess work of song titles u do not know =) this time, W980 wins
another one by W980, shake control. press walkman key n shake forward, backwards twice to easily go to d next or previous track, while shaking it back n forth will do shuffle mode. although u can do this too (except for shuffle) by using d dedicated keys on d phone (also wd 5320XM) or even wd d remote control from d audio adapter. on d other hand, 5320XM's say n play feature is also a cool feature, press d XpressMusic button n simply name d track title, artist or title n artist of d song n 5320XM will play em for ya immediately =) juz imagine wen u r driving, dis feature wil be very useful. who wins dis part? well it depends on ur preference..
last but not d least, both N78 n 5320XM r symbian OS phones using d flexible S60 UI whilst d SE W980 uses d A200 platform. again, it's ur choice.
but f u ask me, n if i wer in ur shoes n money is not an issue, i'll get N78 without a doubt. in fact, aside from d ones i said, the built-in accelerometer of W980 is d only real edge of dis particular walkman phone wen compared to N78. only IMHO guys.
in d end, its still up to u. answer ur questions.. wat features u rarely use, form factor/design u love, functions dat u think most essential n abiding to u, quality, ergonomics, price wise n other stuff dat would be beneficial n be more appropriate to ur personality in other words use ur good judgment. then if u've got ur checklist done, d last thing i could think of dat u do is.. follow ur heart
hop dis helps =)
(sorry if i got a lil mushy.. geez, i got carried away)

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.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970be patient. the phones have just reached the shores of dubai (3rd june). and is not still available with all retailers in dubai itself. it has started shipping to saudi arabia and will reach the other gcc countries by june end or july first week.

Special, 06 Jun 2008Okay. I bought myself the N78, and to be honest im having more fun using this phone then the N... morecongrats special! nice to see ur enjoying it.
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?
