Hey friends, bought this fone last weekend. In Indonesia it cost USD 300. Worldwide its selling at USD 200 to USD 220. In Indonesia everything cost 30 to 40% higher than the world. After all, it is a country of rich people. People with lots of money and buying power. Shops are cashing on this aspect and earning very very hefty margins which nowhere else in the world is possible.
Now regarding N78, I would like to compare it directly with Nokia N82 as both models share a common foundation. Connectivity is great on N78. GPS, Wifi, GPRS, 3,5G all are well done. N 82 is good too but the battery life is very low when you use these facilities on N82.
Camera, ofcourse N82 wins thousand times.
Music department, speaker and headfone performance is better in N78. Musicwise, N82 is not too good.
Now the notorious keypad on N78, yes it lets you down a bit. But then come to think of it, N78 cost about USD 70 less than N82 and you get a very good music entertainment on it. You would get used to the keys in 1 or 2 weeks. I prefer N78 to N82.
N78 is a bit thinner than N82 but about 1mm taller. It rests better in pocket than N82.
I have a feeling that menus in N78 are a bit faster than N82 as processer being about 30 mhz faster. But N82 has a hardware accelerator which helps to get better picture quality and better video playback.
Now talking about models in time gap between N73 to N95 gb I would like to give 9 points to N82 and N95gb and 8 points to N78 and N95.
The biggest plus point which N78 has is its using biggest battery in N series which only N95 8gb is using. N95 gb has a very large screen and hardware accelerator which bites on battery. So in terms of power efficiency N78 wins 100 out of 100 points.
Now about a new era, where N97 and N86 are introduced, N97 is a different platform and I am not too comfortable with touch screens and most of the time you have to use 2 hands to perform a task. It puts me away from Touch screen. I would prefer a windows device from HTC as I have used them and I like them. But hate when it comes to 2 hand operation while you are on the move.
N86 will be a good device but it still will await a firmware upgrade to solve some issues it is having a present. I will give myself 2 months before I decide to go for it.
Will talk to you soon.
Have a better day.
